Days Three and Four

Thursday, November 22, 2012      1 comments

Yesterday and today have been much, much better days than days one and two. Yesterday was calm and quiet, with my daughter and my mother. Cecily and I went out grocery shopping. In a grocery store I don't normally shop in (because I don't liv... Read more

Days One and Two...Mishaps Galore

Wednesday, November 21, 2012      0 comments

So we left the house later than planned yesterday, mostly because I hadn't been feeling well on Sunday night, so nothing got done in advance. Still, leaving around 4-4:30 isn't too bad for me. We had to drive about five hours to meet my son He... Read more

Heading out for Thanksgiving

I am heading to DC/Maryland/Virginia/Pennsylva
nia...all of the above really, for my Thanksgiving holiday. I am so looking forward to it. I land in MD, rent car, drive to VA to pick up my daughter from college, then drive to PA, where we wi... Read more

Lesson learned

Sunday, November 18, 2012      1 comments

I did something really awful the other day...so awful I have given up e-mail temporarily, and am spending a lot of time in introspection. Not sure if I will come to any grand conclusions, but at least I am spending time trying to figure out how... Read more

T-shirt motivation

Thursday, November 15, 2012      1 comments

Last summer I saw a guy wearing a T-shirt that I just loved because I related to it so much. Of course, my memory is so blasted bad that I forgot exactly what the shirt said - only remembered that I liked it and it had to do with getting older.... Read more

In Memory of my Father and All Veterans

Tuesday, November 13, 2012      7 comments

Well, it being the day Veteran's Day is celebrated (although everyone knows it was the real thing yesterday...the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month), I am going to try to post a picture of my father, taken during World War ... Read more

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
