Day 3 and Feeling Great
Friday, June 24, 2016      3 comments

Walking is still a little slow but once my foot gets warmed up I am a walking maniac! Today I did 2 large laps with DH since he had the day off. It was a bit warmer than it has been. After our walk he headed over to older DD's house to instal... Read more
Day 2
Thursday, June 23, 2016      3 comments

Walked again today. 3 full laps. It is cooler today, slightly overcast. Made walking much more comfortable. I'm still going pretty slowly. Takes at least a full lap for my foot to relax, still have pain but I march on. Usually by the time ... Read more
Foot Pain and the Road to Recovery
Wednesday, June 22, 2016      4 comments

Injured my right foot about a week before school let out. Thought I over-stretched it after a workout. But the pain remained for a long while. Especially painful when I wore my newest pair of walking shoes (same brand as always - Brooks). Th... Read more
Motivation (or lack thereof)
Tuesday, May 31, 2016      3 comments

I haven't been on in a while. I've been having trouble with being motivated. I noticed it during the winter and it has clung on during the spring. My step counts are down and I don't even bat an eye now when I don't even make 10,000 a day. W... Read more
Back walking again
Monday, May 16, 2016      3 comments

After a 3 days "rest" I finally got to go for a walk in the park again today. I call it "rest" because it was a forced rest for me. Snow, hail, freezing temps in the middle of May just did me in. I packed away all the winter gear so I had not... Read more
Frogs, rain and more shoes
Thursday, May 12, 2016      0 comments

It is thundering to beat the band today. So far no rain, but the sky looks like it could open up at any moment. While I'm sitting here I can hear the tree frogs singing. They are especially loud today. Singing for rain maybe? Younger DD abs... Read more

Mother's Day, Part II
Sunday, May 08, 2016      4 comments

Today was a wonderful Mother's Day. DH and I went for a long walk early in the morning. Then a stop at Meijer to get some annual flower seeds for a flowerbed, a couple of plants for some pots on our back porch, and some meat that he wanted to ... Read more
Mother's Day
Saturday, May 07, 2016      4 comments

Tomorrow is Mother's Day. The last day in the gift trifecta for me (birthday, anniversary, Mother's day). This is the first giftable day that I have actually asked for something. Something that I have wanted for a couple of years--an Aria sca... Read more
Being a Mom
Wednesday, May 04, 2016      5 comments

Yesterday older DD was sick and I stayed home to take care of her. You wouldn't think a 26-year old would still need mom to come over but she did. Gave herself food poisoning and she was one sick young woman. Turns out she slept on the bathro... Read more
Prunes
Wednesday, April 27, 2016      8 comments

I love prunes and I eat them almost every day. Seven delicious little prunes keep me happy and my fiber intake in good measure. In the past I have shared my prune stash with students always calling them "dried plums" since so many judge th... Read more
Solution for My Tiredness
Tuesday, April 26, 2016      4 comments

I'm pretty sure this going in early and having the life sucked out of me by those awful 7th graders is what is making me so tired every day. I get home a bit after 2PM, eat my lunch and then just want to go to bed I am so tired. I have zero en... Read more
Loss of an icon

Prince Rogers Nelson died today. My older DD texted me at school and dropped that bomb on me. I have been a huge fan of his since my younger days. His music is always played very loud in my car. My kids hate it but tolerate it too. If you r... Read more
It's been a long school year....
Wednesday, April 20, 2016      3 comments

I work in a middle school with 6th, 7th and 8th graders. This year we have been having a really difficult time with the 7th grade. Difficult as in the principal had to sit in a classroom two days in a row to make them behave. Since then she ... Read more
Rough Walk Today
Sunday, April 17, 2016      3 comments

78 degrees today. Went for a walk in the park around noon after cooking all morning for the rest of the week. It started out at 43 degrees when I woke up which is why I choose to cook first, walk later. I think I made a mistake. By the t... Read more
