Might know the orthopod I finally choose is on vacation so soonest appt. is July 12 which will make me late starting back to school if I have to have a knee replacement. Upside is this doctor is kind of a wizard with arthroscopy soooo...I'm hop... Read more

The Tiniest Rain Shower

Tuesday, June 21, 2011      2 comments

Beat nothing but not by much. Hopefully, the 15 minute shower we received this morning isn't all there is. At least it settled the dust. I'll leave the covers on the patio furniture just in case. Quiet day planned today, hopefully reading a... Read more

Major Yardwork Today

Monday, June 20, 2011      1 comments

I got in about 4 hours of weeding, digging, stretching, bending today - if I have knee surgery in the next couple of weeks, I won't be doing much of that for the next month or so. Still have about 16 feet of holly hedge to prune and mulch as the... Read more

Reading As Therapy

Sunday, June 19, 2011      3 comments

Sometimes you have to let the world go by and read. Usually I have at least a dozen books going at any given time. Today it was 18 books and 4 magazines. What can I say, I'm behind on my summer reading. One great book I finished today was ... Read more

Mad As All Get Out

Saturday, June 18, 2011      4 comments

Five years when I ripped up my knee, it could have been fixed with bandaid surgery. Thanks to an incompetent orthopod, I'm about to get a new one. Every time I think about the "pat on the head" treatment, I get mad all over. "Nothing some weight... Read more

Sometimes You Need An Ice Cream Cone...

Friday, June 17, 2011      1 comments

...or a balloon, a kind word or compliment. After I spent most of the day getting xrayed, ultrasounded, MRIed, I treated or rather fortified myself with a double-dip cherry vanilla cone from Braums. Then I drove 30 miles to say Happy Father's Da... Read more

June is 1/2 Gone-What Have I Accomplished?

Wednesday, June 15, 2011      1 comments

A lot, although the month is flying by: caught up on medical/dental appts - I hope. The MRIs tomorrow will tell the tale on whether I'm having knee surgery and/or anything else - one is for my kidneys, the other of the knee. The next thing... Read more

Great Day!

Tuesday, June 14, 2011      1 comments

Got up the nerve to weigh today and was only up 2 pounds instead of what I expected. It's really hard to be with people who are totally disinterested in what they eat and what activity they do [or in this case, don't]. Anyway, mostly back on tra... Read more

Weekend woes!

Monday, June 13, 2011      3 comments

My aunt, whom I dearly love, survives on fried food, chips, dips, and doughnuts. There is nothing else in her house! I feel like a stuffed turkey after 3 days of eating at her table. I carried cantaloupe and strawberries which lasted a half... Read more

4-Day Vacation!

Wednesday, June 08, 2011      1 comments

I've lost 10 pounds of my Winter 15 so I'm pleased with the last 9 days progress. I'm going out of town tomorrow until Sunday morning and will not be able to track daily. Tomorrow has a couple of clinic appointments and will be fairly busy with ... Read more

Yeehaw!

Tuesday, June 07, 2011      2 comments

Almost through with the major yardwork for the summer. I have another 20 feet of holly hedge to clean out and mulch, then it is weed/feed/water for the rest of the year. While Mom and I were out working, this guy came by who had done tree-trimmi... Read more

Monday, June 06, 2011      1 comments

As soon as I can get the den cleaned up, and the first time one of my brothers wanders by, I have to beg, plead,cajole one of them to move the treadmill from the garage. After I put in an hour out there, even with the doors up, I about need an I... Read more

Tired Today But 9 Pounds Down

Saturday, June 04, 2011      2 comments

I'm still trying to talk myself to the treadmill but I've done most of the exercises in my plan and worked outside for about an hour. I think I'm going to take a nap and read the rest of the day.... Read more

On the Winter 15. Then I can start the Spring 15, followed closely by the Summer 15, Fall 15... I've busted my rear this week despite the back and knee, kidney failure, et al by taking it in 15-20 minute blocks. Next week starts all the doc... Read more
