Fall Cleaning

Wednesday, October 03, 2012      3 comments

I always did march to the beat of a different drummer...so I decided it was time for fall cleaning instead of spring. Boy, did the house need it! I have been working my tail off for three days, and I anticipate at least two more. Who knew I h... Read more

A very good birthday

Thursday, September 27, 2012      2 comments

I actually had a pretty nice birthday yesterday, though I wasn't really expecting to. The birthday cake I made came out very well - although not as much of it was eaten at the potluck I took it to as I had expected. But I think I will put the ... Read more

Birthday

Wednesday, September 26, 2012      3 comments

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

Sunday, September 23, 2012      3 comments

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

Weigh-in

Wednesday, September 19, 2012      0 comments

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

More sprinkler

Thursday, September 13, 2012      1 comments

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 :-(

Saturday, September 08, 2012      2 comments

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

Tire Troubles

Thursday, September 06, 2012      2 comments

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

Wednesday, September 05, 2012      1 comments

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...

Tuesday, September 04, 2012      0 comments

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

Centipede

Sunday, September 02, 2012      1 comments

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

Strange

Friday, August 31, 2012      3 comments

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

Latex allergy - of all things!

Thursday, August 30, 2012      1 comments

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. So...day before yesterday I had some small injury and put on a bandaid. Yesterday I took it ... Read more

More Road Trip

Tuesday, August 21, 2012      0 comments

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
