Too much popcorn

Sunday, November 18, 2012      15 comments

I dread hopping on the scale tomorrow. Today we took our grandsons to a darling movie...'Wreck-it Ralph'. Unfortunately, I ate a bit more popcorn than I should have and even worse, I had a cup of hot cocoa after. It was a magical day, but I k... Read more

Cellulitis!

Monday, November 12, 2012      10 comments

Ouch! My arm is red, hot, swollen...so painful. Trying high dose oral antibiotics. Once before I had this and ended up with three infusions each day for two weeks. I don't want to go there. Can't do weights, but can walk. Pretty dizzy and w... Read more

Play

Saturday, November 10, 2012      9 comments

Today I had the joy of playing with my 8 and 9 year old grandsons and almost three year old gd. Hide and seek, make believe, dance, and tag were their games for the day. I only got to stay an hour, but the joy and laughter will ripple through ... Read more

No Silliness?

Thursday, November 08, 2012      9 comments

An older gentleman who dh and I know often sports a ball cap that reads 'grumpy' across the front. It suits him perfectly. He is opposed to all silliness. As we discussed the Christmas dinner party for our little band of co-ministers, he insi... Read more

Sabotage Time!

Monday, November 05, 2012      15 comments

This time of year is always hard. So many people want me to try this or that goodie. I'm pretty good at just taking a taste these days, but it is still a challenge. However, I do remind myself that last year I actually lost a couple of pounds... Read more

We walked to enjoy this glorious day. I didn't have energy to go as far as I would have liked, but it felt wonderful to be in the fresh air and sunshine. Tomorrow we will go farther. I'm sure of it! Awesome!... Read more

Had upper and lower endoscopies this morning. Three polyps removed...hooray for prevention. Also still have some gastritis and also had to have esophagus stretched again. It feels good to swallow, but no solid food until tomorrow. After only ... Read more

Mother Nature speaks up!

Monday, October 29, 2012      5 comments

Mother nature is on a rampage on the east coast of the United States as Sandy rears her angry head. I pray for all in her path. May all find their way to safety and recover well. My heart breaks for everyone in harm's way! Read more

I did it! ... 5k

Monday, September 24, 2012      6 comments

Though I found out later that the course was actually a bit short, I am still thrilled to have completed the event. I jogged about 80% of the race. I probably could have walked it in about the same time, but was so happy to have been able to j... Read more
