Mini Goal - All About Perspective

Friday, July 27, 2012      9 comments

The concert is on August 26, and from now until then, my mini goal is to lose 5 lbs. Of course, it sounds like a very easy thing to do. For someone whose body insists that it would prefer to plateau, not so easy. However, I will do it. There... Read more

My Skinny Jeans Funny Story

Thursday, July 26, 2012      13 comments

Last year, I bought a $200 pair of jeans marked down to $10 at Marshalls (good ole Marshalls). Even though the tag said they were my size, when I tried to get them on, they wouldn't even get up my leg. I thought they were probably mistagged fr... Read more

Olympics & Another Concert

Wednesday, July 25, 2012      4 comments

Some years, I watch Olympics. This year, not a bit interested. One reason could be that I haven't watched TV in about a year and don't even go near the thing. Have no interest in turning it on for any reason. Just doesn't appeal to me. ... Read more

C'mon... Where Did July Go?

Tuesday, July 24, 2012      5 comments

I wind up saying this every month, so it's my own little running joke. But, honestly, I cannot believe how time is flying at lightning speed. July is disappearing faster than ever. Wishing all a happy day.... Read more

I just discovered this walk and researching it further, including a book I just ordered. There are four different paths of varying lengths, and this is something that I'd really enjoy doing. I think I am going to set it as a long-term goal/rewa... Read more

Running Shoe Dilemma-CONCLUSION

Friday, July 20, 2012      5 comments

So, the shoes arrived yesterday. This is the last time I buy through the mail. There is a defect (loop for lace is broken), and they don't fit too great. This place is local (and sells nationally), so I am going there this morning for a refun... Read more

Running Shoes Dilemma (contd.)

Thursday, July 19, 2012      5 comments

Thanks to all who responded yesterday; I appreciate the good advice. Unfortunately, by the time I received it, I'd already found two pairs of different styles by the same brand at a great price. I went ahead and ordered both. Expect that ... Read more

Running Shoe Dilemma - Aetrex?

Wednesday, July 18, 2012      7 comments

Anyone out there wear Aetrex? I'm changing my brand of shoe since Avia discontinued the only style that fit me well. Athletic shoes are the only things I have trouble fitting that are comfortable for my normal-size/width feet, for some reason.... Read more

Harry's Healed Eyeball

Tuesday, July 17, 2012      9 comments

Today I went to the Target pharmacy to pick up Harry's eyedrops. Remember I told you about this new vet being less expensive? My old vet charged me $30 for these eyedrops. At Target, with this new vet's perscription? $4!!!!!! He's 98 pe... Read more
