Doing ok despite winter
I'm doing ok. After the last blog, we both managed to lose a few more. I was sick over the holidays & thankful for a lack of appetite. I'm finally back to the mid-180's, so clothes fit better.
The snowy part of winter has just begun. St... Read more
Shrinking pants (rant)
I hate having pants that are too small. So last weekend, I went to Pennington's & bought 3 pairs of pants & a pair of sleeper pants, all regular price. I washed them all shortly after I got home.
Today, I'm wearing the first p... Read more
I'm not as OK as I thought I was
In a couple weeks, it will be 2 years that My Guy passed away. It's not like I thought I would be fully recovered from such a sudden change in my life, but I figured I'd be well on my way.
In some parts of my life, it's starting to come ar... Read more
Day 5 - Post-Arthur and still no power
I'm on a bit of a rant today. And it's not directed at the linesmen/women and tree cutting crews, but rather the upper crust of the corporation.
It's Day 5 since I've had no power. No one other than an assessor has been on our main road, ... Read more
"Tropical Storm" (aka a hurricane!!) Arthur
For those of you wondering, My Gal & I are ok, as are house, garage & both vehicles. So far.
The storm started in the early hours of Saturday morning, while we were still on vacation in PEI. We opted to end our vacation early, so we could... Read more
Sky -- 1998-2014
This morning, Sky crossed the Rainbow Bridge. For the last 3 weeks or so, she hadnít been eating very much, and it was difficult to coax her into eating even her favourite foods. At first, I thought it was her regular Spring Fasting, something... Read more
So much for chocolate
I've been struggling for quite some time since My Guy passed with getting my eating patterns under control again, and using the self-discipline I've taught myself over the years. I know it's emotional eating, and this isn't new; I've been an em... Read more
The Snow Rake
The more I stay in our house, the more I discover things that need to be done, that can be done, and that there's an easier way to do it than My Guy used to do.
Enter The Snow Rake.
Last week, I bought a snow rake. I knew it wouldn't ... Read more
The First Anniversary of Being Without My Guy
So much has happened in the last 12 months. One thing that really stood out is that I found out who my friends were. And who was really My Guy's friends.
Today was ok, overall. I spent the day home yesterday, and it was much harder than ... Read more
Since August, it feels like my eating plan has been on vacation. Sure, I put on 5lbs during the month, but I was ok with that, because I was working on melting it off in September. Then 2 weekends ago, just as I was gearing up to lose those 5l... Read more
A New 'Do
It's been several years since I've wanted to get a short hair style, but every time I've wanted to go, I didn't know what to tell the stylist. And I certainly didn't want to leave it to chance.
Last Saturday, My Gal & I finally went to get... Read more
Gone Muddin' (or "One Day Closer to Healing")
I've talked about mudding just past our driveway, that it was so much fun, rippin' thru the big puddles and screaming my head off. And that I wouldn't be doing it anytime soon because I wouldn't drive the truck through that kind of water.

Earlier this week, I did a presentation at work on my weight loss journey. I was hoping to record it, but network issues with the recording software for online meetings messed up the recording. Instead, I've decided to post the written portion... Read more
Easter Weekend 2013 (my never-normal life)
Some holidays are easier to handle than others, and Easter is one of those. I'm happy about that, especially about not weeping during a whole weekend.
Friday was nice & tame, no big things going on, just enjoyed the sunshine and the downti... Read more
