I Must Be Nuts

Friday, April 24, 2015      4 comments

I have a certain amount of steps I like to walk each day so I make my monthly goal. I've been increasing my goal for a few months and, honestly, I feel better when I walk more. I think my brain just needs those extra endorphins. But yesterday... Read more

The Way movie

Thursday, April 23, 2015      1 comments

I watched "The Way" starring Martin Sheen a couple days ago. It took my morning walk time (50 minutes) and then I worked in some time in the evening to finish it because it was so good. I have been thinking about this movie ever since and have... Read more

Yikes it was windy

Tuesday, April 21, 2015      2 comments

The last hour of each day at school I fill in for 1) the school secretary when she takes lunch, and 2) the woman in ISS when she takes her lunch. Today I'm sitting in the front office when one of the teachers comes in from outside. "Wow is it ... Read more

What a week

Work has been stressful lately. The kids started a new end-of-year test this week. The old test schedule was 2 weeks long, the new test - 8 weeks long. This week was Language Arts and the booklets they had to do all their answers in were huge... Read more

The weather has been so nice lately. Today I swapped out all my winter clothes for my spring duds. I need more dress slacks but don't want to spend much to get them. My friend C and I are planning a shopping trip to Lansing next weekend to ch... Read more

Back to My Old Self

Wednesday, April 08, 2015      2 comments

Sunday I turned a corner on being sick. Monday I was still tired and took a nap when I got home from school. Tuesday I woke up and felt more like my normal self. Took a nice long walk and it really worked some kinks out of my lower back and i... Read more

Spring Break?

Sunday, April 05, 2015      3 comments

This has been the most depressing spring break I have ever had. Spent the first day in Chicago with older DD, which was fun. But the very next day I came down with something that just hung on all week. I felt icky. Couldn't stay awake. Got ... Read more

Too Much Sleep Does Not Make a Stepper Happy

Tuesday, March 31, 2015      3 comments

I think I picked up something on that train Friday. Saturday my throat was killing me. Yesterday more of the same and a horrible cough added in. I would cough until I could hardly breath. Sprayed my throat every couple hours with throat spra... Read more

Day in Chicago

Saturday, March 28, 2015      4 comments

Chicago yesterday was a lot of fun. The only thing we did that we had planned on was eating at our favorite restaurant when we first arrived there. The water taxi wasn't running yesterday so we never made it to the Aquarium. Instead we walked... Read more

Today was only a half day at school. We started our spring break today and don't return until April 6. I almost started skipping down the hall as I was leaving I was so excited. Oldest DD and I are going to Chicago tomorrow for the day by tra... Read more

Yesterday I visited a podiatrist for the first time ever. I have been having problems with my first 2 toes on my right foot. Actually thought I had some sort of fungus but it turns out I don't (whew). What I have is 2 toes who have been abuse... Read more

This was a quick week. Time just flew by and now it is the weekend. DD and I are going to the movies today with a couple of free passes that my friend R gave me last time she was down for a visit. We also have to go to a toy store and look ar... Read more

Car Troubles

Monday, March 16, 2015      3 comments

Had to take my car in to get a tire fixed. What a fiasco and I will never go back to that particular repair shop again. Because of the lateness of the repair I ended up taking the whole day off work. The day got up to 71 degrees today. Just ... Read more

Nice Day

Saturday, March 14, 2015      6 comments

Busy day today. DD and I went to an annual event called "Woman's Expo". We have never gone before and DD wanted to see what it was like. I'm not sure why it is such a huge draw. Most of the booths we weren't interested in but we did look at ... Read more

Finding Money

Wednesday, March 11, 2015      7 comments

Michigan has a 10 cent per bottle deposit on all carbonated drinks. I'm not too proud to pick up an empty I see on the side of the road. All this week, as the snow has been melting, I have noticed lots of empty cans as I walk home. Today I ac... Read more
