Winding down on Saturday eve
Spent another long day in the car, but I hardly noticed it until we stopped. I knitted a little, then quit because if I knit for too long at a time, my 'tennis elbow' screams. ... Read more
We stopped in Myrtle Beach, SC to visit with the m-i-l of our eldest. She's such fun and we always enjoy seeing her. We're trying to talk her into coming to visit - told her we always have a room for her, so she can see her son, d-i-l, and gra... Read more
Tiring but fun day
Hi from FL again. I did well at breakfast - fat-free yogurt, a clementine and oatmeal w/raisins. Lunch was a BIG meal, so dinner will be much smaller. The resort planned a big Island buffet for last night, but due to the rain it was postponed... Read more
Monday in Southern FL

We're on the road for a few days' vacation. Hmmm, do retired people get 'vacation'?
I'm working on m... Read more
a day of mixed emotions
Today is my Mom's b'day, and that of one of my s-i-l. I made and sent a card to Mom, as she lives at least 1600 miles from here and I don't even have a phone number for her.
My DH and I went to our last "Kid Writing" today, and that's sa... Read more
The rain DID stop yesterday morning, and by 11:00 the playing fields were mostly dry - due to the wind. We watched the boys play, and had a good time. Josh (10 yr old, catcher) caught a foul pop-up for the final out of the game, and his team w... Read more
We awoke to rain and WIND this morning, and the hi temp was probably early, early this a.m. While the rain is supposed to stop by mid-day, the winds are expected to be STRONG all day. I'm thinking my grandsons' ballgames will be cancelled, but... Read more
Just sharing some thoughts
I am down because (among other things): I can't seem to lose any weight (and keep it off) - I've been stuck losing and regaining the same couple of pounds for ages now. Also, I'm on medicine for my 3rd sinus infection of 2010; etc, etc, etc. ... Read more
This is shaping up to be a busy week (which isn't necessarily a bad thing). We volunteer at one grandson's class today and Wednesday, and at the other's tomorrow. Thursday morning is our usual visit to work at the animal shelter (especially f... Read more
We attended both little league games today. Both grandsons play just about every Sat. It was HOT, HOT, HOT today, but I used an umbrella for shade part of the time, which made it bareable. Enjoyed the games.
I'm 'chillin' tonight ... Read more
Broke down and went to the dr.
I finally had enuf hip pain (and besides, I have my 3rd sinus infection since Jan!) so I went to the dr yesterday. Her opinion is that I most likely bruised/irritated the bursa sack in my rt hip, and maybe even 'contused' a bone when I bumped d... Read more
Me depressed? No, and here's why
This is a tough week for me. I have three daughters and all three have (family) problems; also one of my nieces (and her parents). some temporary, some more long-lasting, some more serious than other problems. I won't go into details, but su... Read more
In order to be honest and open w/y'all, I need to confess a failing. I have been eating too many sweets the past few days. It's self-indulgent, and emotional eating.
I have also been doing some good things: eating more fruit, getting... Read more
Answered prayer: My friend's brother D (see Apr 16th blog) came thru surgery well, and will soon be discharged from the hospital. The dr's feel everything is good, but because of one reason or another, healing will be slow. Thank you for your... Read more
