I have to make choices daily that affect my health and wellbeing in the future. Sometimes I wonder if I am making the best choices. It is difficult to find the right balance to ensure mental, emotional and physical health. I have laid back fr... Read more
Looking for balance
The lock on my apartment door is malfunctioning. I can lock it from the inside, but the key doesn't work, so I can't lock it when I leave the apartment to go walk the dog. It makes me nervous to leave my door unlocked. I called the emergency ... Read more
I took the day easy today. I decided to let Cooper decide when we were getting up this morning. I was awake, but he didn't want to get up until nearly noon! Little stinker! When we finally got up I took him for a 7 mile walk. That was almo... Read more
I am an introvert
I am an introvert. I embrace that aspect of myself and accept that sometimes I don't fit in well with social situations. Today was one long socializing session, and I am so ready to just curl up with the dog, lock my door, and be by myself.

It snowed most of the day today. But it wasn't as wet as yesterday, so Cooper was willing to walk. I ended up walking him over 7 miles this morning, 1.5 miles this afternoon, and two short walks this evening. Four walks, and hopefully we are ... Read more
That wasn't snow, and it wasn't rain. It was slush falling from the sky. Cooper's least favorite weather, so I had trouble getting him to walk today. I ended up taking him out about 8 times, which is backwards progress on my campaign to get h... Read more
Driving and plotting...
I took the dog for an hour's walk before heading out to my parents' house to swap cars and take off for PA. Tigan (my niece) is moving once again, so she wanted to move some of her bulky stuff up here for storage. I met her in Meadville, PA, w... Read more
The dentist said "good job"...
I had an "energetic" dental hygenist today. I don't usually mind getting a cleaning, but he was really digging under my gums... all the while saying my teeth looked great. What?! If they look good then why do you need to scrape quite that dil... Read more
Walk that dog...
Cooper got 5 walks again today. We are definitely ( but slowly) getting back to our 3 walks a day. I like it when he is willing to go for a long walk in the morning, because then he is sleepy and cute for several hours.
My Spark activity ... Read more
I was just feeling frustrated over little, unimportant things today, even knowing they were not important I still let them get to me. Grrr... Makes me want to smack myself silly.
It turns out I can't meet Jeremy at the gym on Tuesday as I ... Read more
Lunch with the folks...
Most Saturdays I go out to my parents' house and make lunch for all of us (mom, dad, brother, and me). Today was no different. I made citrusy baked salmon, sauteed veggies, soybeans (from dad's garden last summer), red cabbage, and mini eclair... Read more
Everyone in the building had to be up early this morning for the pre inspection of the building. Today they were checking emergency pull cords and alarms. I walked Cooper for 10 minutes when I first got up, and then 2 hours after they were don... Read more
I was chatting online with my niece, Tigan, today and she invited me to go on a road trip with her in April. Her other grandparents are in Ft Myers, Florida, so she wants to go down and visit them for a couple of days. So, 4 days driving down... Read more
My little dog, Cooper, is just like the Energizer Bunny the last few days. I take him out for nice long walks, and an hour (sometimes an hour and a half) later he wants to go out again. Yesterday I ended up walking him over 5 hours, and today ... Read more
Happy St Patrick's Day!
I spent the day today mostly walking the dog. I don't know if he is tired out, but I am. I have already walked him over 20 miles, and I will probably take him out one more time today. I did take a half hour this afternoon to go to the monthly... Read more
