Lots of Walking
Saturday, November 10, 2012      3 comments

Well, today I certainly got my 10,000 steps and then some! Danny was invited to a birthday party at the Botanical Gardens, which is having a big dinosaur exhibit. We must have walked a couple of miles at least. Back in my younger days, I coul... Read more
Handling depression and cravings
Friday, November 09, 2012      6 comments

I am feeling quite depressed again. I thought I would have my son tonight. We usually have a pleasant time in the evening together, watching DVDs or walking the dog or reading. No excitement but no conflict, either, and there's a lot to be sa... Read more
Lost a couple of pounds
Thursday, November 08, 2012      1 comments

Well, the stress I have been under over the election and my friend who was running has had at least one positive effect - I have lost 3 pounds since about a month ago. I don't get a chance to weigh on an accurate scale very often, so I can only... Read more
Super Stress
Tuesday, November 06, 2012      0 comments

I thought itwas bad yesterday, but today I am so stressed that I feel physically sick. I feel as though I am about to throw up. The big problem is that a personal friend of mine is running for office. I am so worried for him that I feel s... Read more
Stressing out
Monday, November 05, 2012      0 comments

I admit it, I get way too stressed out before an election, hoping that my candidates win, and lying awake worrying about whether they will. Today has just been a terrible day for stress, and I didn't accomplish nearly as much as I needed to bec... Read more
A long way to go
Saturday, November 03, 2012      1 comments

Well, if I had had access to my computer earlier, I would have entitled this blog, "Help!" because I was feeling very, very sad and depressed, and all I wanted to do was to eat everything in sight. Sigh. I just about did. The only bright side... Read more
Household projects
Friday, November 02, 2012      1 comments

I have several continuing clean-up projects planned. Mostly I just need motivation. However, housework is one of the biggest sources of calorie-burning in my life, so I really do need to dredge up some motivation from somewhere. First is ... Read more
Halloween post mortem
Thursday, November 01, 2012      1 comments

I had a very nice Halloween this year. Although my son wasn't home for me to take trick-or-treating (which is a HUGE amount of walking and great exercise!), I got to give out candy, which I really enjoy. I admit, though, that I have a pr... Read more
Halloween
Tuesday, October 30, 2012      2 comments

I thought I had Halloween solved - since my older kids are away at college, I would have to take my youngest trick-or-treating; thus, no one would be home to give out candy...thus, I wouldn't need to buy any. However, it turns out he will be tr... Read more
Money woes and joys
Thursday, October 25, 2012      1 comments

Sometimes things just fall my way, in what I could call coincidences, but which sometimes seem to be a bit more than coincidental. Case in point: this month has been one of several lately in which there has been way, way more month than mo... Read more
Customer Appreciation and pets
Wednesday, October 24, 2012      0 comments

My son and I had a very nice time at Customer Appreciation Day at my bank. I never heard of a bank doing such a thing...they closed off the parking lot, grilled hot dogs, brats, etc., and gave them away together with free beer, wine, water, and... Read more
Rudeness and Politics
Wednesday, October 24, 2012      1 comments

I really can't believe how completely rude and insensitive some people can be. I will also add that I hate discussing politics unless I am with friends. I hate to walk into a situation where things get heated, mostly because vocal conflict (we... Read more
Pinterest in Person
Monday, October 22, 2012      0 comments

I had an awesomely fantastic time today at a friend's house. She was holding a "Pinterest in Person" event, the idea being that Pinterest is all about what we are interested in - say, crocheting, gardening, cooking, etc., but it is very solitar... Read more
Doing better
Saturday, October 20, 2012      1 comments

Things are going a bit better with my broken toe. I actually didn't tape it to the next toe over, because I knew it would hurt too much for me to actually be able to tape it. I did manage to find one of those medical-type sandals people wear w... Read more
On top of everything else...
Friday, October 19, 2012      1 comments

So I was careful and ate well yesterday, and was quite proud of myself as a result. I was also feeling like I was accomplishing things. Just overall seeming like a very good day. After dinner I was heading to the recliner to read for a little... Read more
