I went to San Francisco Saturday night with Yvonne to the historic Warfield to see comedian Jim Gaffigan. We parked a few blocks away and walked to the theatre. I caught the edge of a manhole cover with my shoe and fell, landing hard on my kne... Read more

I'll keep it short in case I lose my internet connection again. I picked up my laptop today. The hard drive was not fried, but the power cord/adapter was. How they knew that, I don't know because that was in my computer bag while my laptop we... Read more
A Winning Attitude!

My left knee is still very swollen and sore, so I am very careful with it. I can walk all day on it as long as I don't bend deeply. Stairs, sidewalk curbs and sitting down present opportunities for a very sharp pain right behind the knee cap. ... Read more
Coolness! Internet Frustrations and Gardening
Sunday, April 22, 2012      1 comments

Yesterday, I blogged that I'd like an order of coolness. My prayers are answered, though not to the degree I want, but I am grateful. It feels a few degrees cooler today. This morning, I went to the landromat but I did not walk while my cloth... Read more
I'd Like an Order of Coolness, Please!
Saturday, April 21, 2012      3 comments

I got up super early this morning to do two things: drive to work to Spark (home laptop is 3 timezones away getting repaired or replaced) and to do as much as I can around the house before it gets too hot. I need to: water the plants r... Read more
I May Be Out of Touch on Saturday & New Kettlebells!
Friday, April 20, 2012      4 comments

I blogged about overeating yesterday at lunch. Despite better intentions, I did the same at dinner. I had a wonderful slaw that included fresh and garden fresh ingredients. Then I ate too much of other stuff, almost as if I were watching some... Read more
Still Not at the Starting Block!
Thursday, April 19, 2012      4 comments

Last night's visit to the new Best Buy Geek Squad team was far shorter and far more pleasant than I anticipated. Alan expedited my computer so, in theory, it was shipped last night to "Geek Squad City" as he called it (Louisville KY). I should... Read more
Feeling "Off"
Wednesday, April 18, 2012      4 comments

Last night, I went to the Best Buy near my home that is closing next month so I could pick up my still-not-working laptop that was fried as a result of last week's thunder and lightning storm. I waited for over an hour while the Geek Squad guy ... Read more
Miscellaneous Thoughts
Tuesday, April 17, 2012      4 comments

Five years ago, Chauncey Starr died. He was, in stature, a short man, probably just over five feet. But he had a mind and a heart that were larger than life. I've blogged before about how he tried to sign up for WWII after the Day of Infamy. ... Read more
Points! Water and Food and, Maybe, Exercise
Monday, April 16, 2012      3 comments

I came home yesterday and ate all kinds of miscellaneous food - nothing unhealthy, but I ended up, I know, eating too much. Stress, I'll call it. I did not even track it, partly because, 24 hours later, I don't remember what "dinner" was. I n... Read more

I slept in until about 7 and that was later than I intended to, but it sure felt good! Off to the laundromat. You folks who have machines in your homes are blessed and I am envious! But, as I thought would happen, I missed the "we just opened" ... Read more

Saturday, April 14, 2012      5 comments

Thank you, Sparkfriends, who commented on yesterday's blog. My mood is better today even though my circumstances are not. The Centennial: This morning, I had a wonderful cup of coffee and gave my cats their favorite treats as a tribute... Read more
Is it Wrong?
Friday, April 13, 2012      5 comments

Is it a negative affirmation, a perpetuation of negativity if I say that I am struggling? If I recount all the struggles, does that feed into some kind of karma that means they will continue to occur? If yes, then I am doomed. I am as stuck as ... Read more
I Got My Car Back - For Now
Tuesday, April 10, 2012      4 comments

My mechanic has his own shop - it is not a dealership repair shop - and I trust him. For me, that's big. I have experienced the stereotypical horror stories that you hear about with women at dealerships whether sales or service, so finding Eri... Read more
I Wish I Were in Japan Right Now
Saturday, April 07, 2012      5 comments

My sister-in-law's mother died Wednesday after losing her 3rd bout with breast cancer. I never got to meet her, but heard nothing but wonderful things about her from my brother and his mother (my stepmother). Her passing is a crushing blow, al... Read more
