FORCED R & R DAY
Sunday, August 15, 2010      2 comments

Well, I guess one gets what one deserves. I knew that I shouldn't have been walking around in flip flops all summer, but I did it anyway. I've felt the difference (no support) in my knees. Took Mr. Puppy (an 85 lb., 11 yr. old black lab who s... Read more
LOVE FRESH BEGINNINGS
Saturday, August 14, 2010      2 comments

I have to say that I love fresh beginnings. Whether it's a new day to get in sufficient exercise, eat healthier, do what you are passionate about doing, starting a new school year with the kids, it excites me. I am so deeply grateful for every... Read more
SUMMER FROM A TEACHER'S EYES
Sunday, August 01, 2010      3 comments

I have to say that I hate it when people find out that I'm a teacher and they say, "You are so lucky to have the summer off! And still get paid!" Reality is that we do NOT get paid for summer work unless we take on something extra. We CHOOSE ... Read more
OUT OF THE BLUE
Monday, April 12, 2010      8 comments

Well, actually, it's much more real depression than simply being "blue." It has been a very difficult late autumn and winter. Even early spring was still so hard. I lost 5 people in my life, 3 of whom were far too young. I began to just abso... Read more
SPRING CLEANING IS A HEALTHY EXERCISE!
Sunday, March 14, 2010      7 comments

There's something so cathartic and healthy about spring cleaning (once I get past the sneezing and sniffling from dust allergens!) I began with the sewing room. I love sewing, quilting, and paper crafting, but come on! I had pieces of materia... Read more

Monday, September 07, 2009      3 comments

I am feeling so terrific. I just came inside from spending over an hour of hard manual labor on this beautiful Labor Day Monday. My older daughter, Jennifer, volunteered to do the heavy duty gardening with me that desperately needed to be done... Read more
THE RIGHT DOCTOR
Friday, August 14, 2009      4 comments

I was so dismayed some years ago with finding a doctor, just getting used to him/her, only to find that in a year or two he or she chose to move, start a family, or became part of the "insurance game" when my husband's company changed insurance ... Read more
AND HERE'S TO LIFE!
Friday, August 07, 2009      3 comments

I've read so many posts describing the guilt and anger so many of us share over feeling as if we "got ourselves into this mess" and the consequent overwhelmed emotions that surround that sense of guilt. I once read that anger from guilt "serves... Read more
Sugar Free Popsicles
Thursday, July 16, 2009      1 comments

I have discovered sugar free popsicles this summer and what a life-saver they are for me! At 10 calories and only 4 carbs. each, they are my totally-guilt-free-anytime treat! As a diabetic, the carb count is important to me. The flavors are t... Read more
