Handling depression and cravings
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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...
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

Laughing at myself
Today I fixed broccoli for dinner, cooked in just a bit of water. As I was about to drain it, I decided to be lazy and just drain it into the empty teapot that was sitting on the stove. No big deal, right? I would just empty it out later and ... Read more
