My poor dog is getting wider!

Friday, October 04, 2013      2 comments

I just came home from the vet where I dropped $58.00 for allergy pills. Basically, they are Bendryl with steroids. The steroids are making her huge! The vet told me that the weight goes on fast and comes off slowly. Really? I didn't know th... Read more

Are you going to wear that?

Monday, September 23, 2013      5 comments

OK, I'll be the first to admit that I've never been a slave to fashion, but there are a few things about style that I just don't get. Watching Project Runway hasn't helped; in fact, I'm even more confused when I see the models parading down the... Read more

My brother got through the graveside service, but I'm sure it was hard. I was unable to go because I still can't fly or even go on a long road trip (8 hours in this case.) My daughter and her husband did go, and they said it was very meaningfu... Read more

It hit us close to home...

Tuesday, September 17, 2013      9 comments

My brother let me know on Monday that his wife had taken ill and died. They are in their eighties and still very active. She became very ill on Labor Day, and when her illness didn't let up, they called for an ambulance. She was admitted to I... Read more

Physical therapy that measures success

Friday, September 06, 2013      3 comments

Physical therapy for my knee is extremely painful, but the benefits are enormous. I like that changes can be measured to show how I'm doing. I have home health coming three days a week, and I've been pleased so far. My bend measurement has in... Read more

Freedom!

Thursday, September 05, 2013      2 comments

I've learned one thing in my lengthy life: If you go overboard with possessions, your possessions will own you. I mean collections, magazines, clothes, shoes, technology--the list goes on. My weaknesses have been scrapbooking stuff and my Dep... Read more

A new knee for the fall season!

Monday, September 02, 2013      6 comments

Finally, after the stress test, a UTI, and some little hoops to jump through, I got my new knee on August 19th. It went well, and although it hurt afterwards, it would get better. I was slated to go home on the third day, but for some reason, ... Read more

A Good Heart

Monday, August 12, 2013      5 comments

Before I can have my knee surgery, my doctor had me get a nuclear stress test. I don't mind telling you that I have avoided getting one for a long time, because I was afraid that it would make my heart beat really fast and make me out of breath... Read more

Leave a trail to help you remember where you've been.

Monday, July 29, 2013      3 comments

I was going through some old photos tonight, and I was mad at myself for not labeling the pictures with the events or dates. One was actually funny to me. I was at a parade with my 18 month old grandson in the picture, and I noticed that I had... Read more

I have to let go of some frustration!

Tuesday, July 23, 2013      6 comments

Ok. My husband has ADD to the nth degree, and even though his medication helps a lot, he's driving me crazy losing things. It's the same thing every day. He loses his keys or his billfold EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!! He just doesn't think about what... Read more

How is a diet like doing a crossword puzzle?

Thursday, July 18, 2013      4 comments

Since I've been retired, I've acquired the habit of doing the crossword puzzles in the Dallas Morning News. They have a commuter puzzle that's easy and they also run the New York Times puzzle daily. I am thinking about crossword puzzles in gen... Read more

Angel on one shoulder, devil on the other

Tuesday, July 09, 2013      4 comments

Lately, I've been reading and watching a lot of documentaries about the American diet and how it affects our health. Over and over, these books and films tout vegetarian or vegan diets to sustain good health. One doctor who has researched exte... Read more

High Maintenance

Wednesday, June 26, 2013      5 comments

Ever since I retired, I have had lots of time to do what I want, but my body isn't paying a whole lot of attention to my want list. I look forward to days when I'm not required to go anywhere. In short, I've become almost reclusive! I don't k... Read more

Audio-hallucinations!

Wednesday, June 26, 2013      4 comments

I may have blogged about this a couple of years ago, but it bears repeating. I thought I was going out of my mind when I began to hear radio transmissions coming out of my bedroom fan. I looked all over to see if my husband had left a radio on... Read more
