Today it occurred to me that I had a mini peddler and that I should be using it to get some exercise. I brought it in the family room and set it up next to my chair. Five minutes at a time and I can get my cardio in that way. The first time, ... Read more

Today, I had to park a bit of a distance from the doors of the clinic. Part of the reason was because of people taking more than one space. The other part is because my mother's car is bigger than I like and I need enough room to keep my door ... Read more

I've been doing a lot better today. I still need some vegetables, but I'm going to have a salad. That takes care of 3 servings right there. Vegetables are the one thing it's hard to send my son after. He doesn't know how to pick out good one... Read more
