Relaxing Monday

Monday, November 05, 2012      3 comments

Normally Mondays can be crazy, but since I have some vacation to use up before the end of the year, I started taking some Mondays off, and in some ways they are nicer to take off than a Friday. Caught up on my shows on DVR, will go do som... Read more

Sandy Update

Tuesday, October 30, 2012      19 comments

We survived Sandy! We did end up getting over 8" of rain, as forecasted, but we were spared the really bad winds that folks in NJ, PA, and NY got -- peak wind gust was around 60 mph. For those of you who are professional or amateur meteorologi... Read more

Sandy has made her presence felt last evening and into this morning. Over 3" of rain so far, with the forecast of up to 8" possible. Amazingly enough, that amount of rain would still not get us back to "normal" for the year -- we are close to ... Read more

A few things that have happened in the past few days will keep me motivated to continue pushing to better health: - Weight: 181.6 at home, scale at the Dr office was 182, pretty much splitting hairs. Goal is 179. I do like the scale ay m... Read more

Getting closer...

I'm sure I'm speaking for LOTS of SP'ers, but I sure do love a good weigh-in!! Today's weigh-in: 181.6!! Nearly a 3 pound loss since my last weigh-in, and more importantly, that puts me 2.6 pounds away from my goal weight of 179! The "ma... Read more

Feeling much better today...

Monday, October 08, 2012      4 comments

Not sure exactly what it was, but definitely felt out of sorts yesterday (Sunday). Was clearly sore from mowing on Saturday (did all of the back yard, which is close to an acre), was not thrilled with the colder air that moved in, and in spite ... Read more

Why is it not good to skip a meal!

Yesterday (Friday) was one of those crazy good days...worked in the AM, then as soon as I finished a conference call at noon, we packed the dogs in the minivan and headed to the beach. We were in such a rush that I forgot to get some lunch, whi... Read more

Friday, September 28, 2012      8 comments

I know for me time seems to be flying in general, but I think the past 366 days since I had my WLS moved at warp speed!! I could on and on about all the positive changes that have occurred, but I'll spare those of you who are reading thi... Read more

Monday, September 24, 2012      5 comments

So the good news was that my youngest daughter was back home and came to visit my DW and I Saturday evening and Sunday. The bad news was that it made for a VERY BUSY Sunday for me: - Cooked breakfast - Drove to beach (45 minutes away) to... Read more

Weather Excitement!

Tuesday, September 04, 2012      6 comments

Got home from our trip to W VA yesterday, in-laws in tow, around 2:30PM. Got them on the road and had planned to have a low-key, put up your feet kind of afternoon. Ah, but the weather gods had other plans. Around 3:30PM, it got VERY dark, an... Read more

It's GREAT to have the windows open (FINALLY!)

Wednesday, August 29, 2012      8 comments

OK, so maybe for one day before the heat moves back in, but it is GREAT to have the windows open and enjoy the cool outdoor air! I think it has been at least a month since we last had them open! Well, back to work...just wanted to share.... Read more

Tuesday, August 28, 2012      3 comments

OK, you are probably wondering about this blog and what it is all about. I'll try to keep this as "ungross" as possible.... Rewind to last Wednesday. My DW and I decided we wanted Mexican food for dinner, so we went to one of our favorite... Read more

More fun clothes shopping....

Stopped at one our local department stores this morning after breakfast (for those of you in PA/NJ/DE/MD, it was Boscovs), as I had two goals to accomplish: 1) Get a new wedding band (I'll explain in a minute) 2) Get some new jeans for ... Read more
