Mowing

Friday, July 27, 2012      4 comments

Well, I got back to mowing the back yard today. Because it hasn't rained much, the parts I had relatively recently mowed didn't need it today, but the parts I hadn't mowed recently were pretty bad. I think I got a pretty good workout, for me, ... Read more

New Scale

Friday, July 20, 2012      3 comments

So I bought a new scale for cheap from an online site. The reason I bought a new one was because I got tired of the old one consistently weighing everyone about ten pounds lighter than his/her actual weight. Of course, knowing that, you could ... Read more

Problems

Thursday, July 19, 2012      1 comments

Frustration! I had been doing pretty well maintaining over the long term a ten pound weight loss. Now, I need to lose much more than that for my health, but at least I wasn't gaining and I was feeling good about that. Then I signed up for... Read more

Not an inspiration

Wednesday, July 18, 2012      1 comments

Last Saturday I participated in a cardio tennis class taught by someone I have known for years - a really nice guy. Unfortunately for me, of the eight people in the class, five were very good - two or three of them were extremely good, two were... Read more

Car/Weight Loss Study

Friday, July 13, 2012      1 comments

I can't believe it - I was just in the middle of a long blog post, and I accidentally hit a key - I think it was either the 'control' key or maybe the caps lock. Whatever it was, it deleted my entire post. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr... Well, I had wr... Read more

Test

Monday, July 09, 2012      0 comments

Well, we tested the car, and, sure enough, if the 'lock' button has been pushed twice, it is impossible to open the car from the inside. This is, to my mind, very dangerous. Tragedy could have happened yesterday just because of this. I need t... Read more

Near Death by Stupidity

Sunday, July 08, 2012      0 comments

Why is it I almost always seem to be commenting on my own stupidity lately? And I actually am not normally a stupid person. But I make really stupid mistakes, often with completely snowy white intentions, and the results have ranged from bad t... Read more

Sugar Cuts

Saturday, July 07, 2012      1 comments

Everyone gets a paper cut now and then. I am the only person I know - probably the only person in history - to get a sugar cut! That's the positive spin. The negative goes more like this - only YOU could possibly do something that stupid! ... Read more

Iced Tea and goals...

Thursday, July 05, 2012      0 comments

I am feeling tired and discouraged. It seems as though the route to many of my goals follows the pattern of - one step forward, two steps back - which doesn't get me very far forward in the end. However! I am going to assume that things will ... Read more

Odds and Ends

Wednesday, July 04, 2012      0 comments

I signed up to participate in a research study, working with researchers I have worked with several times before, and whom I like. One of them is a former professional basketball player and such a nice guy. These studies don't pay very much, b... Read more

Vacation

Thursday, June 28, 2012      0 comments

I had such a wonderful time at my recent trip to California for a wedding/vacation/family reunion. The weather was just wonderful in Monterey - pleasantly warm during the days, cool at night. What a break from the Texas weather of day after da... Read more

Am I Out of Shape, or What?

Wednesday, June 27, 2012      0 comments

So yesterday I was at the airport, ditzing around, thinking I had plenty of time to get to the gate, when I heard an announcement that it was the very last call for the Las Vegas flight...and I saw the flight number they called on my boarding pa... Read more

Peaches, peaches, peaches...

Thursday, June 07, 2012      2 comments

OK, usually my peach trees, which I overwhelm with total neglect, do produce peaches...but usually every single peach has one or more nasty little white worms, and usually most of the peaches have bad spots, etc. And even then I have too many, ... Read more

A Better Day

Thursday, May 24, 2012      1 comments

Today I got to spend time with some really fantastic people whom I am proud to call my friends. Somehow spending time with friends, listening to their struggles and telling them about mine, really brightens my life, even if our respective situa... Read more

Sadness

Wednesday, May 23, 2012      3 comments

When I was in graduate school many years ago, one of my fellow grad students used to refer to life as 'this sadness.' I never really thought of life as a 'sadness' then, nor later. I have always found life to be generally full of blessings and... Read more
