Our daughter (OK, technically my step-daughter) will be giving birth to a baby girl in the next few days... can you spell excited? I never even had kids of my own, but Sara has been part of my life for the last 10 years, and I show up as a 'pare... Read more
WooHoo - Spring is Almost Here!!
I am elated... I just love the 'newness' that life takes on at this time of year. I am especially excited, also, because I love tracking, feeding and watching the Ruby Throat Hummingbirds, and have one feeder out, as they have already been spott... Read more
Thought I would share my thoughts this morning...
I was standing on the front porch, and watching the leaves fall. Such a peaceful way to start a day! Anyhow, I'm not a poet, but this came to me from somewhere:
As I watch the leaves gently spiraling down,

Update on Life
OK, I really don't want to do this, but I owe an explanation to so many people, it just seems the best way to deal with it.
The last two months have been hell - literally. For two years (after I left my job), I became the caregiver for my ... Read more
Just a Quick Run-Down on Events
I know I've been offline for days on end, and I apologize for that. Last Thursday morning, I was unable to gain entry into my FIL's house... as his primary caregiver, that gave me a little more than heartburn. I called the dh, who... Read more
MDMNINA had a suggestion
And it is - of course - about the cats. She said I should blog more so that her kitties could get to know my kitties... well, all right - I can't find a thing in the world wrong with that!
So here goes... and I will start at the beginning of '... Read more

*Finally* getting off the plateau
Gosh, that was 5 weeks of nothing; I read where it could happen, just never thought it would happen to me. Anyhow, the spell is broken, and I am once again on the 'southward' path of weight loss and fitness - yay.

And so this is Christmas...
Listening to John Lennon sing perhaps the sweetest Christmas song ever produced; love it. It occurs to me that this is a great day to pause and reflect on the past year, as well as the upcoming year... so I will split this into two groups.

Catching a Second Wind
Oh, my - have been terribly remiss. All I talked about was the DH; shiite - one would think he was the one on the life-change journey.
I went to Doc myself today, and found out that I'm in pretty impressive health for an overweight 40-somethi... Read more
