Same Song Title--Two Very Different Messages

Wednesday, September 10, 2014      2 comments

I have downloaded on my exercise iPod Nano, "Try" by Pink. Its refrain works to do some intervals while warming up. Basically it is a pick-yourself-up-after-a-faile
d-love song. (With some very nice instrumentation.) There is a new "Tr... Read more

Misinformation

Sunday, August 24, 2014      1 comments

How many times have you stopped and immediately read an article with a headline that screams "New Weight Loss Method" or "Secrets of Big Weight Loss"? Me - Every time. I am often disappointed or even worse, laughing at the ridiculous supposed... Read more

Measuring Mental Pain

Friday, August 22, 2014      3 comments

When I have had surgery, I have been asked routinely to give a measure of my pain on a scale of 1 to 10. On my personal scale, childbirth after the epidural failed and blocked gallbladder are my number 10's. They were such big things that all ... Read more

It's already 90 degrees and it is not even noon yet. Those of you who live on the desert are thinking, "What is she complaining about?" But add in high humidity and it contributes to what the weather people call the "misery index". But I ... Read more

When Life Makes You Check Your Thoughts

I'm Back

Tuesday, July 01, 2014      3 comments

I always loved that line by Jack Nicholson in "The Shining" even though it is a very scary movie, at least to me. I have always been on SparkPeople, but I stopped blogging, I stopped many other Spark activities. Partially it is because I have ... Read more

Bad-for-You Food

Monday, November 11, 2013      3 comments

Why does food that is bad for your become so much more appealing when you are sick? I have been fighting "something" for several days. For the last 24 hours, it has been winning. Do I want to eat broth or eat fruit? No, I want sugar. Hot ch... Read more

Relaxing

Tuesday, October 01, 2013      2 comments

I am trying to work on relaxing more. I am at the hairdresser now. My hair is being conditioned and I am sitting under a heat cap. Very relaxing, but instead I am on my computer working - the usual multi-tasking instead of enjoying what shoul... Read more

Monday - Never a Great Day for Me

Monday, September 30, 2013      3 comments

For years, Mondays are always a downer. This went far beyond that the weekend was over, Monday is never a great day for me. Whether it is the transition or something else, I have never figured it out. (Do not ask me what I am like on Tuesday... Read more

Feeling Alone

Sunday, September 29, 2013      5 comments

Last night I was feeling all alone in the world. I had spent the day doing built-up housework from the week and laundry. I hadn't gone out except to get the mail. I didn't talk to anyone except my husband who was sick and went to bed early. ... Read more

It Has Been A Long Time

The Power of Pain

Sunday, April 22, 2012      6 comments

I have certainly had pain before in my life -- skinned knees as a kid, childbirth (but a great outcome), gallbladder removal. And then there is the dull pain in my hip since November 2010 which led to my hip replacement three weeks ago tomorrow... Read more

I Have Had Plenty of Time to Think This Week

Saturday, April 21, 2012      11 comments

I spent four days this week in the hospital with complications from my hip replacement. There was a lot of time I couldn't do anything - couldn't read, couldn't needlepoint and I'm not a TV watcher. I listened to music, but I had lots of time ... Read more

Giant Chopsticks and Other Adaptations

Monday, April 09, 2012      7 comments

This past year first with my foot surgery, then hip problems and now the hip replacement, I have developed a real empathy for people who are permanently disabled. When all is said and done, I should be better than I have been in a long time. ... Read more

There is No Place Like Home

Saturday, April 07, 2012      6 comments

I came home from the hospital yesterday. I felt better just walking into the house. I slept so much better. I have always had problems of eating too much comfort food when I am sick. What is the easiest food to get out and that doesn't... Read more
