Tomorrow (less than an hour away) is my birthday, and I am fighting a pity party. I won't get any presents...but that is normal anymore, and I don't really want presents per se. What I want is to be with the people I love and who love me, and ... Read more
An embarrassing non-scale victory

Today I wanted to look nice for church, so I decided to grab a skirt from the closet. I should add that I almost never wear a skirt. Usually I wear nice pants and a dressy top for church. This was a skirt I had bought some years ago and proba... Read more

Another doctor's appointment, so another accurate weight. And I was sort of pleased to know that I am maintaining. Not what I really wanted, since I would like to be losing, but I refuse to call it a plateau...just maintaining at a slightly hi... Read more

I have to chuckle. After all the trouble I went to with my sprinkler system, and finally getting it fixed yesterday, I was most dismayed this morning when I went outside and discovered that my expensive sprinkler system had not gone on in the m... Read more
Sprinkler System...sigh
Thursday, September 13, 2012      0 comments

Some time ago, I wanted to help out my nephew, who was a struggling contractor. I asked him to put in a sprinkler system, since I had a little money to spend on home improvement. And, here in south Texas, yes, if one wants one's house to not c... Read more
Sick :-(

I was way overoptimistic in my last blog in hoping that my cold wouldn't get worse. It did. Much worse. I still feel as though my head was hit by a hammer, probably partly because I had three nights in a row of bad sleep. For some odd reason... Read more

I admit that there are days I wish I had stayed in bed...yesterday started out really well, but by the end of the day...well, it was one of THOSE days. I had arranged to meet my ex-husband and get my child support and give him our son for t... Read more
Weigh in day

Today I had one of my periodic appointments to check my weight and measurements for the research study I am participating in. I appreciate these, because the scale I have at home weighs at least ten pounds low. Knowing that, I can see how my w... Read more
Another lawn-mowing marathon...

Or at least it seemed that way. Speaking scientifically, there is a very high activation energy for me to get off my behind and get out there and mow. Once I am out there, I am always glad to be accomplishing something, plus burning some calor... Read more

Today I was babysitting for my church, when one of the kids screamed out, "It's a scorpion!" and two or three others chimed in in agreement. I hurried over to investigate, hoping it wasn't a scorpion, because I have never disposed of one before... Read more

I don't know why it is that I tend to eat more when a reasonably nutritious dinner is before me than when I scrounge for myself whatever I find in the fridge. If the dinner is there, neatly on the plate, I somehow seem to act as though I am ent... Read more

I always used to laugh to myself when I saw or heard anything about a latex allergy. I thought it was just nonsense - heck, I never had any problems. before yesterday I had some small injury and put on a bandaid. Yesterday I took it ... Read more

Well, we are returning from dropping off my daughter at college far, far away. Only now I have a new car, one with an automatic transmission. This means that my son, who seems to be allergic to a stick shift, is now able to share the driving, ... Read more
Road Trip
Saturday, August 18, 2012      2 comments

I have been on a loooong road trip, taking my daughter to college far away from home. This wouldn't have been quite so much a problem for me with healthy eating if it hadn't been for the fact that my older son didn't want to drive because the c... Read more
Too many sweets

There is a reason I don't normally keep ice cream in the house. Today I ate way, way, way too much. Not to mention M&Ms. Oh, well, I will do better tomorrow. Since the ice cream is gone, I can't help but do better in that area. :-)... Read more
