Days Five and Six

Saturday, November 24, 2012      2 comments

Not so much to write about in these past two days, because it has mostly been peaceful and quiet. Mom pretty much just watches TV most of the time, and she gets herself a reasonably decent breakfast and lunch. She always remembers her morning ... Read more

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
