Who Am I? For years my self-worth has been all about that numb... Read more
More Rough Times
Are you sick of reading about my miseries yet? This is the place where I can unload my troubles. Even if nobody reads it, somehow it is cathartic for me to write about it. I do so appreciate all the supportive and helpful comments from those of ... Read more

Hungry Girl (Lisa Lillian at http://www.hungry-girl.com/-- Isn't she terrific?) has named something I've been doing for a long time. She calls getting extra steps in around the house, "House Walking." I love it. I have a house where a circular p... Read more
That kiss I failed to give you.
How can you forgive me?
The kiss I would have spent on you is still
There, within me. It will probably die there.

I haven't been to Spark for a few days, has it been a week? Maybe longer? My mind, body and heart have been with my beloved Du, as he continues this long battle with Cancer. While trying to stay on track with my eating, admittedly I haven't been... Read more
Non-Scale Signs that You Have Gained Weight
When I was losing weight, you couldn't keep me off the scale. I was on that thing every single morning, and sometimes, again at night. I loved to see the numbers dropping. When I started maintenance, I still got on the scale often, maybe not dai... Read more
Yesterday we saw Du's oncologist. His plan for Du: WAIT. He never wants to move very fast. I'm not sure about this. He did order more scans, since Du's PSA is not all that reliable. The ironic part about Du's deceivingly low PSA tests, is that t... Read more
A Visit To the Oncologist's Office and Holding on to Hope!
As I have mentioned repeatedly I'm sure, Du's PSA level is continuing to rise. The first spike was noticed in a test from late last November. When we pointed it out to the Oncologist, he decided to check it again, and now after three successive ... Read more

Birthday Party and Turning the Switch to "ON"!
Yesterday the whole family met for lunch at a local race track bar to celebrate my 64th (that can't be possible!) birthday. Horses don't race there yet, but the owners hope to start it soon. For now they have about a million TVs all showing hors... Read more
I had such a bittersweet day yesterday. In one way, it was a GREAT day. I didn't do much, other than some holiday baking. it is all stored in my dining room (out of sight--out of mind, at least that's my plan), and awaiting Christmas Eve and Chr... Read more
And Then There Were Two
As silly as it is, when every one of my boys moved out (and the oldest two sons moved out a couple times before it was a "final" move), I felt some sadness. And they were all in their late 20's before that final move. I had nothing to feel sad a... Read more

Five Years Ago Today….I sat in my car in the doctor’s parking lot, sobbing at my steering wheel, not sure what to do next. He had just told me that my EKG seemed to show I’... Read more
