Friday, April 25, 2014      4 comments

I am at the end of my rope with my Specialized Sirrus Sport. It seems that just about every month I am down at the bike shop for something or other. Just since the beginning of the year, I have had to replace the back tire, the cassette, the s... Read more

Greetings, Sparkpeeps, and welcome to the continuing series of indignities that is my life. You ought to get a kick out of this. So there I was last night, stepping out of the shower and drying off, trying to get ready for bed. It had b... Read more

Holding steady at -15 pounds. I need a tutu.

Greetings, Sparkpeeps. I know it's been a while, but I crawled under a rock in the weeks leading up to my birthday and just decided to stay there. This seems to happen every year. I think I must be one of the few people in the world who a... Read more

Patience is not always a virtue. And I think I bit my tongue off.

Greetings, Sparkpeeps. Today was a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG day. I got a call from my husband at 8:30 this morning. I was about to go out and scrape the inch of SNOW off the car before heading to a client visit in a neighboring... Read more

Mystery Solved

Sunday, January 26, 2014      4 comments

Greetings, Sparkpeeps! So here I sit, staring another four to five days of low activity in the face. How do I know? Well, I'll tell you. See, I actually got a bit of sleep last night. HOWEVER, when I woke up this morning, I was pant... Read more

Highly suspicious...

Greetings, Sparkpeeps! Well, I'm still waiting for this dumb cough to go away and whatever is in my lungs to clear out already. However, I'm feeling well enough to be absolutely appalled by the state of my house, and I'm slowly going aroun... Read more

Well THAT was fun... (I'm rambling)(TMI)

Thursday, January 23, 2014      2 comments

Greetings, Sparkpeeps! So it turns out that the "little bug" I had contracted turned into a much bigger one. I had a 102 degree fever for two days and alternated between sweating like a racehorse and chills where there were not enough blan... Read more

Blogging in between coughs

Saturday, January 18, 2014      4 comments

Greetings, Sparkpeeps! I'm not sure what it is that I have, but I surely do wish it would go away. It's not allergies, per se, and it's not flu, and it's not a cold. Just a runny nose, tiredness, and a hacking cough which is exacerbated b... Read more

Greetings, Sparkpeeps! One of my New Year's resolutions is to incorporate more healthy food in our diets here at the House of Karlsson. Rather than wait around until January 1, I decided to go ahead and get the jump on things, especially ... Read more

Greetings, Sparkpeeps! As you may or may not know, Mr. Karlsson is experiencing the onset of middle age spread. He's been in denial about it for quite some time, but now that the scale has tipped 200 pounds (even without clothes), he's bec... Read more

Friday, December 20, 2013      5 comments

Greetings, Sparkpeeps. You may have noticed that I make a point not to really talk about my family all that much, my female progenator in particular. For various and sundry reasons, I prefer not to burden the general public with such talk,... Read more

Yoga-schmoga, or, unexpected progress

Monday, December 09, 2013      3 comments

Greetings, Sparkpeeps! Well, it seems that I'm starting to outgrow my Yoga Conditioning For Weightloss video. Do I look EXACTLY like the instructor when doing the poses? Nope, because I weigh twice as much as she does and have boobs and a... Read more

I'm glad America is so big, plus, rambling because I can

Saturday, December 07, 2013      4 comments

Greetings, Sparkpeeps! I've been futzing around this morning covered in a pile of cats (whose fur seems to be strictly ornamental) and reading SparkPeople blogs. Dozens of blogs about the holidays and family and all that rot. After spendi... Read more
