Wednesday, May 27, 2015      5 comments

Members of my family and I went to the Detroit Tigers-Houston Astros game on Saturday. It was a great, closely played game. Unfortunately, the Tigers lost 3-2. We did see a triple play: a rarity in baseball. We even had Helena doing the wave... Read more

Monday, May 18, 2015      8 comments

Taking care of 2 sick babies sure made for a long week. Not much movement, though, unless you count laundry, doctor visits, cleaning, etc. And my numbers sure were pathetic from it. Steps: 61564/68292, Minutes: 868/1083, Calories: 2913/339... Read more

I am not one to ask for help, but I sure could use some extra prayers for Sherry and Helena. Sherry still has a queasy stomach and worries if she will vomit again. Helena hasn't stopped with the diarrhea nor the vomiting. The night befor... Read more

Helena started with the diaper rash a week ago Wednesday. By Sunday night it was worse. The Urgent Care sent up to the hospital who yelled at me for questioning why she gave Helena antibiotics when they couldn't rule that she had anything. So... Read more

Once a mom, always a mom. I was reminded of this over the weekend. Helena developed a diaper rash that quickly got terrible. We took her to the doctor who confirmed it was a yeast infection and gave us a diaper cream. He said he thought she ... Read more

It's May Day: four months of the year have passed. No, I haven't reached a bit of the goals I had set for myself. I keep over-scheduling, biting off more than I can chew, etc. I really am getting better; I have practiced thee word "no" quite ... Read more

4/27/2015 Last Week in Review

Monday, April 27, 2015      6 comments

We're starting to get into more of a pattern. But my daughter and I both think writing up a loose schedule between us will help us not do double-duty on some things. To actually get the time to do it may prove to be something entirely differen... Read more

I've had this cough/sinus thing going on for three weeks now. There's been a few days where I have been really wiped out. I actually took a few naps and that is so unlike me. It's time to make a doctor appointment to figure out what the deal ... Read more

A Grandma's Observations

Friday, April 10, 2015      11 comments

Being with Helena the last couple of weeks, I have made a few observations: When away from home, I didn't really think about getting my steps in. I was too busy playing. While at home: I think about my step count but I don't always ge... Read more

Monday, April 06, 2015      7 comments

Another :(. Trying to get Sherry and Helena ready played havoc with my schedule and steps. But it was so worth it. I did notice that once I was home over the weekend, the steps naturally came back up to just about where they should be. ... Read more
