My daughter turned 37 today. We made jumbo stuffed pasta shells with salad and cherry meringue dessert today. Our dog was bad and scratched so much that we had to staunch her blood. We are hoping and praying that the dog gets to the point where ... Read more
Is it Rain?
Is it the rain that makes me sad?
Thinking everything has gone bad?
Rain falling on the rooftop
Oh that infernal blasted drop!
Streaking my windowpane
Making me go insane
Water puddles everywhere
I should not c... Read more
Here is a poem I wrote for my BLC group for fun. Hope you enjoy it too.
Ode To Coffee
Oh, how I love coffee!
Even more than toffee
Especially with creamer
Call me a dreamer
Give me coffee in the morning
Or I will give y... Read more
This week in the challenge we are encouraged to push harder and do more. Instead of just getting 6 hours of sleep we should try for more. Instead of just drinking 6 glasses of non caloric drinks we should try and see if we can do it all day. Do ... Read more
Well we only got half done of what we wanted today. I got another copy of my late husband's
death certificate but my daughter did not get in to see the funeral director to set up a burial trust. When we went there he was out and we shopped at ... Read more
I think my mind has deserted me at times. Last week I realized I had completely forgotten to get chicken. I had to order delivery from the restaurant in town. Then if that was not enough I lost my late husbands death certificate! ... Read more
Well I lost another 3 pounds this week and am hoping I can get my body more toned too. We have a new WEC coming up where it talks about motivation. It asks you to find your favorite song and exercise to it for 15 minutes or more and find a quote... Read more
Now let me say that it is a good thing to try and reign in sugar during Lent by abstaining from chocolate; if one has enough will power and eating fish is good. But one makes it unhealthy by piling on lots of tartar sauce or mayonnaise. The poin... Read more
I really think that Sparks should rethink allowing McDonalds to advertise their fillet of fish deals when it is over 390 calories for one sandwich and the sodium and carbs are way too high as well. After all it is a weight loss site and no one i... Read more
Yesterday my mother would have been 101. Every time I think about it I get upset. Her move to an assisted living place and her death has torn our family apart. I never hear from my sisters anymore and only hear or see my brother and his wife onc... Read more
My first lunch went through me so I ended up eating canned mackerel in a romaine salad. I also had a tomato, dried veggie blend, and blueberries in it. My daughter thought it was gross but it is still protein.
I am eating too many snacks t... Read more
Well we got the new refrigerator yesterday. It is smaller than our old one and we had to get rid of some food and reorganize other stuff to make it work. Despite losing weight and inches I have the blues today. The sun is out but inside I am not... Read more
My Earnest Prayer
Alas! My heart is weeping
Over sins that keep creeping
Into my very life
Cutting me like a knife
Oh God, where are you now?
Do you even know how?
How much I am hurting
The effort I am exerting
Trying ... Read more
Well if one does not get you the other will. I have diverticulitis as well as IBS and if I do not chew nuts well enough I lose out too. I found that out when eating protein bars from Aldis that have a lot of peanuts or almonds in. I found out th... Read more
I hate this rain it just makes me feel more depressed and makes my bones ache. Long for some sunshine and for people to stop leaving stupid comments on my blogs. Comments that do nothing but make me mad because they do not get it. Long haul with... Read more
