Long weekend. May Run Weekend. GothDaughter is gone with GeekyGothBoy to stay at his parents, since they're out of town. Who needs eyebrows anyway? *waggling eyebrows* The weekend is looking good. :-D If I don't post somewhere... Read more
Just keep me away from the junk food & the likker

Today, I'm having great difficulty containing my anger towards GothDaughter. I've been very patient for the last 2 weeks, purposefully taking a step back when I feel the need to shout or yell at her, trying to put a positive spin on it. But wh... Read more
She moves in this week

I knew this was coming, and neither myself nor My Guy are thrilled about it. His daughter, GothDaughter, moves in with us this week. GeekyGothBoy apparently can't keep a budget under control, and chose to buy a car instead of paying last m... Read more

Yoinked from an email I got today: "I always used my shampoo to wash the rest of my body while in the shower. It was just easier to lather up my hair and use the extra suds on my body instead of soap. Then I saw the words printed on my sham... Read more

It's been nearly 2 weeks, and my big chest cold is almost gone. (I have a cold, I have a big chest, hence, I have a "big chest cold".) The coughing has backed down a lot, and I no longer hock up a lung when trying to clear my throat. YAY!... Read more

Yes, I'm sick today. It takes a lot to admit it, and even more to stay home because of it. I have a nasty chest cold. My chest is big, so it's a BIG cold. :-D I got the cold sometime last week, and it started to show up late in the week... Read more

Well, I have some good news to share today. After 26 years of trying, I finally weigh the same as what I did when I was 16. :-D Yep, I'm finally really under 190. HOORAY!!!! And yes, I was a fat kid. :-D So, that's one more milestone completed. ... Read more

So it's Wednesday, and I've been meaning to share my weekend with you since Monday. I'd offer excuses, but they're all pretty lame. So I'll just trudge on. :-P It must be perimenopause that threw me for a loop this past weekend. Friday ... Read more
Ok, who stole my Bic?
Monday, April 11, 2011      3 comments

Mondays. About the only thing worse in a workweek is Monday Mornings. Ugh. I've been trying all morning to find that bounce in my step, that smile on my face, the joie de vivre that I normally have. I think someone stole the Bic ... Read more
No, I will NOT accept bleeding toes

So I bought new sneakers last week at a sports store, instead of a department store, following the advice of my orthotics specialist. She even gave me 3 brands with specific model numbers to try on, which I brought with me to Source for Sports.... Read more

And it wasn't the good kind. Over the weekend, I sat wrong on a chair, and aggravated yet again my tailbone's bruising. It wasn't just a 5 minute "sit here for a moment" thing, it was repeated bad posture over a couple days, and up to an h... Read more
What did I just get myself into?!

So, I'm feeling really good about my healthy lifestyle changes and results lately, especially after having bought those size 18 pants a couple weeks ago. Today, I decided I wanted to share my successes with one of my bosses. Being a new agency... Read more

In 18 days, I will celebrate 2 years on SparkPeople. I can't believe it's gone by so quickly! There was only one other weight loss program that I've followed that lasted longer, and I still use many of those healthy habits today. Duri... Read more
Why I make soup that I won't eat
Monday, February 28, 2011      5 comments

This past weekend, I spent a good 4 hours in the kitchen, peeling, dicing and cooking up a stewpack of root veggies, for a "fricot au poulet" (chicken stew, Acadian style) that's taking me a couple weekends to put together. I've been saving... Read more
I haven't been able to do THAT in over 20 years!!
Monday, February 21, 2011      10 comments

No, not THAT! Remember, I'm the one who needs the eyebrow pencil to draw them back in after the weekends, because I get lots of "waggly eyebrow" action. *snicker* No, today was an accomplishment, a goal that I didn't expect to reach until... Read more
