today my daughter Abi's page (Thickncutemama) was featured, and I'm just sooooo proud of how far she's come. She's going througha very stressful time right now - but as the visiting pastor shared today, turbulence is a part of life we can count ... Read more

A bit about the photos in the gallery...

The scenes from what I call the "pig roast" (though really, it was boiled...) take place in Foreman's back yard, and there are also scenes in his mom's kitchen/dining area on the back porch of her house. This is a common arrangement - Iquitos is... Read more

with my busy schedule it's hard to remember to do everything needed to remain a Community Team Member. Perish the thought of losing THAT distinction! I note, my goodness, it's over 10 days since I blogged! OOPS! So here I am. I'm on my way to be... Read more

Or, to paraphrase McCoy from the old Star Trek series, I'm an EDUCATOR, not a disciplinarian! The frustration is that I have to write a referral if I eject a disruptive student. Well, I've done that...gotta see who gets it...didn't do it during ... Read more

running fool!

Well, not really...but I DID do a bit of a jog on Saturday morning while at the retreat. It was still quite dark, they had just woken the team. I did a run-100, brisk walk-100 but I don't know how many times or for how long. But more than I have... Read more

I am still grieved over the treatment Foreman - and other Latinos - received coming into the States through Houston. I am glad he came through Atlanta last year when he came the first time - pleasantly uneventful, he was even given 10 days more... Read more

This morning the scale said 201.5 (pre-poo, so I've entered 201!) much to my delight. Alas, this morning I only did my school-walk cardio, nothing extra, and I may not get to the strenght either: last might I was doing last minute prep for Forem... Read more

another challenge arises

To my great joy and delight, my number one spiritual son from Peru, Foreman (we joke he is also the most expensive, as I support his pastoral and missionary work - he's featured in my Gallery) arrives Wednesday from Peru to spend some time in th... Read more

some nutritional no-no's I've learned

It's good to have lots of fruits and veggies. I try to have four of each daily. Usually I go for two fruits with breakfast. For instance, a friend gave me some pears, LOTS of pears, so I've had double portions.Well, I read that prunes are way up... Read more

not the main motivation, but a nice perk

I'm not trying to get comments at all, but today on my way to the loo at school one of the teachers Iused to work with stopped me and told me how wonderful I was looking, and that I looked twenty years younger. TWENTY!? How old did I LOOK? The ... Read more

AAARGH again!

Weekends are the worst! I can start out okay with my usual breakfast. But Fridays, for example, are my evenings off, and DH likes to go to a restaurant - and so do I for that matter - and while I may actually stay in limits, like I did recentl... Read more

Cuy! Cuy! Cuy!

I believe the Peruvian name for guinea pig is an onompatopeia (spelling?) Anyway, today to gain one littel Spark Point I did a search, and usually I just think, "hmm, what shall I look up today?" So I decided to look up guinea pigs. Found an art... Read more

I broke through the barrier of 204! Weighing in at pre-poop 203 this morning, I am hopeful for 202 tomorrow morning - SIXTY pounds since I started. A Happy Anniversary present to myself (I suppose to dh as well, not that he really cares about my... Read more

Since i started school, I've been filling 3-4 half liter bottles halfway and freezing them the night before, then filling them the rest of the way with water before heading to school. With 4 bottles I can easily reach the 8 cup goal before lunc... Read more

Almost forgot about blogging!

And what does it mean, BLOG? Is it an acronym? Well, anyway... While I appreciate the Richard Simmons' workouts, and the oldies can be fun, I DON'T like having "Upside Down" and "Maniac" stuck in my one night I sat and jotted down ... Read more
