On developing a backbone

Tuesday, February 03, 2015      2 comments

A couple of weeks ago, I had stopped at a casino and was sitting at a slot machine. A person I did not know came over and started talking to me. They didn't sit down and play but they were a distraction to my own play. I would have left the ... Read more

Attitude is everything

Saturday, January 03, 2015      0 comments

It seems strange, but my decision to be more productive in 2015 is actually working. I set a couple of daily goals. Modest goals. And having accomplished those early in the day has inspired me to surpass them. Maybe it is the sun coming ba... Read more

Holidays were great

Friday, January 02, 2015      2 comments

I got to spend quality time with a sister and a brother and my mother as well as some good friends. I enjoyed some good foods, but not enough to increase the amount of weight I need to lose, actually lost two pounds. Now I am back to "go" wher... Read more

New Year, New Picture

Wednesday, December 31, 2014      0 comments

I am currently showing an unflattering picture of myself on my profile. I have a better one in the wings, waiting for me to be that size again before I reward myself by posting it. Is that negative or positive reinforcement? Whatever, I am ... Read more

Now is a good time to...

All that has come before has brought me to this point. Some of it was good and some unfortunate. Now is the time to take what I have learned and do what is needed to get me to my goals. Happy New Year.... Read more

Time wounds all heals

Karma. I am enjoying the blessings from all the good things I did in life. But I was not perfect so neither is my life. At this stage of the game there are many loses. My sister, my mother's memory, many of the people I worked with... but I... Read more

I lost my baby sister to cancer this summer. About the same time my mother's dementia got to a point where I could no longer care for her even with home health care. It was tough to admit that. I try to visit her often, but daily visits were ... Read more

My kid sister died June 12. She was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer in March and opted to not take the chemo. She got hospice and they did a good job of minimizing pain. Now I am trying to sell her house. The stale cigarette smoke ... Read more

I matter

Friday, December 06, 2013      3 comments

It took me many years of stumbling and learning. I still have a lot to learn. But I finally think I found the core problem with my self worth. All my life I have been treated as though I don't matter. Thank goodness I have a supportive husba... Read more

All better now

Friday, November 29, 2013      2 comments

Today I had the tumors removed from my female parts. It was an easy "day surgery". I was in the operating room for only 45 minutes and experienced no discomfort. My hubby took me (poor guy had to get up at 6:30 am) and stayed with me. Thank... Read more

False alarm

Monday, November 04, 2013      2 comments

Looks like I over reacted, or all the prayers worked. My OB/GYN thinks she can just remove the worst growth and leave my uterus in tact. She is waiting for the results of yet one more biopsy before she schedules the procedure. I am partly rel... Read more

Normal Life events

So, Monday I will talk to the OB/GYN about what to do with all the masses that are growing in and around my uterus. I expect we will just take the whole thing out. At my age, I am not using it anyway. One of my ovaries also has a fibroid tumo... Read more

The dog of Frankenstein

Friday, October 04, 2013      3 comments

My little Shih Tzu had 5 cysts and 13 teeth removed Tuesday. She has those Frankenstein monster incisions all over her little body. I ate a small box of gourmet chocolates to ease my anxiety. It worked, and I did not gain (or lose) any weigh... Read more

Post vacation difficulties

Saturday, September 21, 2013      2 comments

I had no problem staying on program on vacation. We got in a lot of walking (especially running through airports!) It was too hot to want to eat and we were too busy to think about it. Also, last day of, I got diarrhea! But when I got hom... Read more

Back from vacation.

Thursday, September 19, 2013      0 comments

This was NOT an eating vacation. Got to the airport and plane was delayed. Got rescheduled and had time so got a sandwich. Then had to switch to a different concourse at Ohare with very little time. Just made the plane so no time to even vi... Read more
