Yuck! I ate some of the left over pizza from Chuck E. Cheese. Now maybe that wouldn't be an awful thing, but since I've now done that for the past three days it is pretty awful. I just can't bring myself to throw away perfectly good food, eve... Read more

Our daughter's family left early this morning for home. The baby is recovering from her brain surgery and we are so thankful that she is doing as well as she is. Her brothers got her giggling yesterday. That sound was music to our ears. It w... Read more
That Water Thing...

O.k. so here I am wondering once more just why it is that the scale refuses to budge. As I review the food logs I feel pretty proud of myself. I stay pretty much below the target calories. Then I look more closely at the reports and a big oop... Read more
Pain, pain go away!
Wednesday, May 19, 2010      2 comments

I've listened far too long to the woeful sobs of my 5 month old granddaughter. I get migraines often and know how much they can hurt. I've had three concussions and know how debilitating they can be and how long the pain can go on. But, I've ... Read more

My four month old granddaughter underwent very delicate brain/skull surgery three days ago. My daughter's family came to stay with us while the baby is in the hospital and until she is released to return home. This is such a challenging time. ... Read more

I woke to a smattering of fresh snow. I left the house for a prayer meeting to sunshine and blue skies. I left the church to overcast and drizzle. Those conditions remind me of my own feelings this day. I've been down and up and then down ag... Read more
Another storm or just a little more wind?
Monday, April 12, 2010      2 comments

After a beautiful beginning to the week, I am sad to feel the windstorm today. Perhaps another real storm is on its way. We'll see. But, I'm using the day to get caught up on so many jobs around here. Bills are calling to me, laundry is not ... Read more
Spring is really here!

I can hardly believe that another winter has gone to sleep and spring flowers are raising their lovely heads everywhere I look. This change of season encourages me so much. I know that I can put away my winter wardrobe and begin wearing those ... Read more

My weight has gotten stuck once again. However, being stuck is not necessarily a bad thing for me. I know that I have lost some weight. Success breeds success. I know the weight will start to move down again soon if I keep my resolve. I am ... Read more
One day at a time

Yesterday was not my best day. I didn't meet my nutrition goals and I didn't get in enough exercise. One of the outcomes was an interrupted nights sleep. The result of that has been a lazy morning without my usual energy and enthusiasm. And ... Read more

I'm helping with a lady recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's. I've known for about 2 years that her dementia was progressing. Now she needs someone to come in four hours each day so she is not alone and remembers to eat. She doesn't understand... Read more
