Visit with Brother
Tuesday, April 25, 2017      4 comments

Today after school I went over to see my brother. I feel better today though he is not doing well at all. Sleeps almost constantly or if he is awake it is for moments only. He takes low dose pain meds but that will be changing today. He also... Read more
Difficult Day

Today was a hard day for me. Not fitness wise but my brother has been in my constant thoughts. Last week he took a bad turn and told his daughter, who he has been staying with, that he wanted to be moved to the Hospice across town. He does not... Read more
New Walk

Yesterday I got out of school an hour earlier than usual, so instead of walking partway home from there DD picked me up and took me back to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore where she volunteers every Friday and I walked home from there. It ... Read more
Missing Little Ann (the cat)
Tuesday, April 18, 2017      3 comments

Last fall when we moved into this apartment we had to rehome our oldest cat of 14 years. She seemed to thrive at the farm she moved to, meeting new cat friends, catching mice in the barns there. But I miss her very much. Whenever I had a chan... Read more

Went to visit my older brother today. Very surprising how quickly he has gone downhill. He is now bed bound and staying with his oldest daughter. He was drifting in and out of sleep while I was there but still joking a little. It was hard to se... Read more
Sad Post

Confession time. I am 13th of 14 children born to my parents. We are spread out quite a bit in age. My oldest brother (half brother actually) was only 6 years younger than my own mother. My father was 14 years older than my mother and was a ... Read more
Spring Break Day 3
Wednesday, April 05, 2017      2 comments

It has been raining all this week (of course). I haven't had a chance to walk outside since Sunday, our last dry day. Today I resorted to jogging in place while brushing my teeth. It was doable but not when it is time to spit. Kinda weird, b... Read more
Second Day of Spring Break 2017
Tuesday, April 04, 2017      4 comments

Today I tried on all those clothes that I painstakingly hung up yesterday. Out of the closet they came one at a time. I tried them on and decided instantly if they were going to stay in my life. Back on the hanger and then back in the closet ... Read more
Clothes Swapping Time
Monday, April 03, 2017      2 comments

So DD and I swapped out clothing today. She kept more of her winter stuff than I did. Campus buildings are still fairly cool to her but the school I work at is already set pretty warm. Except the office, it is freezing in the office as our sc... Read more

Packed up most of my winter clothing yesterday. DD and I will be taking it to the storage unit and swapping out for spring attire. Not much left in my closet and I found a couple of sweaters that never got worn all season. I am in need of at ... Read more
Weight Gain :(
Tuesday, March 28, 2017      2 comments

Per my insurance co's doctor I have been eating low carb in an effort to get my A1c back in range. It worked really well too. But, unfortunately, last week turned into a carb-fest at our house. I knew it and did little to stop it. DD and DH ... Read more
Spring Break is Coming (and I'm not Prepared)
Saturday, March 25, 2017      3 comments

Spring break from school is only one week away. I'm excited because I really need a break from the kids and I didn't get the longer Christmas break due to the flu. But I made no plans this year for something to do. Originally we were suppose ... Read more

Walked early again today. Frost on the grass, could see my breath. I am over winter but winter doesn't seem to be over Michigan.... Read more
Getting That Step Count Back Up
Tuesday, March 21, 2017      4 comments

So this morning I was able to scrap myself out of bed at 5:33 AM and actually went for my early morning walk. Haven't done that in a while due to the weird weather we've been having. Walked in my pajamas, since, honestly who is going to see me... Read more

This has been a bad week for me walk-wise. Didn't get in nearly as many steps as I usually do so my step count is way down. I will have to work harder at it next week and bring it back up again. Only 580 more miles to complete my virtual PCT ... Read more
