Have to Go Back to Vet Again

Monday, July 09, 2012      8 comments

On Saturday, I'll be bringing Harry back to the vet. This time, it's for a recheck on his problem eye infection. It's responding slowly, but he's showing several signs of relief and progress. And this time, I think I'll be less nervous knowin... Read more

Ordeal at the Vet's

Sunday, July 08, 2012      9 comments

Yesterday's vet visit was, well, let's say - a little less than a nightmare. But we'll start with the end results first. Harry's medicated eyedrops have already begun working. Ulcerated infected eyes seem to be in his future as he doesn't... Read more

Anxiety Over Going to the Vet

Saturday, July 07, 2012      8 comments

My cats are indoor, shy guys. Whenever I have to go to the vet, it is a major ordeal for me. I am bringing Harry in for his eye problem in about an hour and it's to a new vet. I feel anxious over driving with him even though he's in his carri... Read more

Happy Birthday, USA!

Oh, how I've cherished my freedom and independence all my life! And have never taken this country for granted. With a heart full of love and appreciation, I hope like mad that we are able to surmount so many obstacles in our future. ... Read more

Blogging Before Planned Power Outtage

Tuesday, July 03, 2012      10 comments

The power is being turned off in my neighborhood for about three hours and I wanted to blog before that happens in a few minutes. They are doing a repair, so at least I can plan around this. However, it really reminds me how our world woul... Read more

Suddenly, I have To Log In Each Time

Monday, July 02, 2012      9 comments

Even though I check "remember me," and nothing has changed on my computer, I suddenly have to log into SP almost every time I visit the site. Wonder why. Anyone else experiencing this change for no apparent reason? Other than that, I have... Read more

Maybe I Should Blog Again

Sunday, July 01, 2012      5 comments

It's been a few weeks since I last blogged. BTW, happy month of July - ALREADY! Half of 2012 gone! Been going through one of my rebellious phases - AGAIN! The "I don't wanna do this" type of phase. Yes, I've kept mega-exercising. Eatin... Read more


Saturday, June 09, 2012      9 comments

Okay, I have to admit that my sparkfriends saved whatever little sanity I have left. (smiling) Yesterday's blog pondered how I could gain 6 lbs in two days. Whew, great feedback by all. And very helpful in reality-basing me. Now, one day... Read more

My eyes nearly fell out of my head this morning when I got on the scale. Not in a good way. On Wednesday, which is my weekly weigh-in day, I saw that I've maintained my recent 10 lb loss. Today - a mere two days later - the scale shows I'... Read more

Learning to do "some" Rather than "none"

Sunday, June 03, 2012      12 comments

I was off sugar and caffeine for over four months. So I know I can do it. But now I want to learn moderation, which might be an even harder thing to do than the "none" concept. I've re-introduced sugar, in moderation. And caffeine, in mo... Read more

Size 10 Need Not Apply

Saturday, June 02, 2012      6 comments

I recently read an article on the MSN website about a singles dating group on the East Coast that didn't want any potential members that are a size 10 or above. Except for these past few years, I have always been thin but never a size 10. This... Read more

Too Much Exercise Bad for You?

Friday, June 01, 2012      5 comments

Just heard a news report that some people experience the opposite effects than those intended when they overdo exercise. Some of these include higher blood pressure and cholesterol. As for me, I've been overdoing exercise for a couple of... Read more

Flame Retardants In Food

Thursday, May 31, 2012      7 comments

So, this morning's news contained more revelations on what's been recently found in some commonly-eaten foods like peanut butter - flame retardants that are used on shingles! Seems like there are fewer and fewer choices for good health. Very d... Read more

Radioactive Tuna In San Diego

Wednesday, May 30, 2012      8 comments

The topic of radiation was quickly turned off by the media shortly after the catastrophic earthquake in Japan. Each time it comes up again, they assure us there's no danger. Yet, the radiation continues to increase. The tuna swimming along ou... Read more
