The month of June was a crazy month for me. Although it was fun, I missed being here with my Spark friends. July is now here, my family is all home, and I am ready to be here. One month off, and I can feel it. I gained about 3.5 pounds and m... Read more
Sleep-typing and rambling

Yesterday was a fabulous day! I watched my 10-year-old nephew earn his blackbelt in Tae-kwon-do(forgive the spelling) and we had a great family celebration. I'm so proud of him. It is not easy to earn a blackbelt. I'm kind of sleep-typing to... Read more

My youngest daughter is going to Europe (Netherlands, Belgium, France, England, and Germany) this week. We have been talking about and making plans for this for many months. Every day we discuss her clothes, her shoes, her money, her cellphone... Read more

Trying is planning to fail. At least you tried. Try it you'll like it. Try at least one bite. Try, tried, trying all need to be eliminated from my thought process. There have to be better words. Perhaps will, can, or did. ... Read more

I keep reading quotes about living in the "now" and being content. At this point in my life, I get it. I don't need the nicest clothes, car, house, makeup, potions, and lotions. I like what I have. My vehicle is almost 10 years old, but it's... Read more
Bonsai Event

I had a fabulous time at a bonsai show and class yesterday. To say that I knew nothing about bonsai except snip and keep little, is an understatement. My knowledge was from the movies. Some of the plants looked like forests and some were incr... Read more

Yesterday I had a great time at the Relay for Life event in Norco. My family and my youngest Sister's family both attended. Although we live in a neighboring city, we had friends with booths there. It was smaller than our town's event, but it... Read more

Have you ever just not wanted to cook? It's common for some people, but I ordinarily enjoy it. I've been tired this week. The weather has changed and I'm waking up hot in the middle of the night. No, it's not hormones. My room is upstairs a... Read more
Loss of Appetite When in Cleaning Mode
Monday, May 17, 2010      3 comments

I've found the cure for a growling stomach! Deep cleaning. I completely lose my appetite when I'm in cleaning mode. I also lose track of time. Perhaps I should do this more often. I straighten things up all the time and clean the kitchen a... Read more

Ooooo! I had yogurt with blueberries, two pieces of whole grain toast with peanut butter, and two cups of coffee for breakfast. I have this almost every morning. Afterwards I did my EA Sports challenge and a 4 mile walk with a resistance band... Read more

Today was a better day than I expected. MIL is on bedrest and dreaming of a cheeseburger. So, she's feeling a little better today. I stayed home, exercised, and sewed for hours. I made lots of purse-sized tissue holders today to be sold at n... Read more

About 3 weeks ago, my MIL fell down and broke her right arm and three ribs on her left side. She is almost 87 and is pretty frail. Although she has a feisty attitude, her body is not keeping up with her. Sometimes the mind and body are not wo... Read more
Mother's Day
Sunday, May 09, 2010      3 comments

I woke up this morning to a nice surprise. A very pretty "Happy Mother's Day" balloon and cupcakes. Thank goodness my younger daughter realizes that I'm watching what I eat. They are half-sized and drizzled with chocolate syrup instead of fro... Read more
