Loved Harry Potter....want to go again!

HBP was very good as far as I am concerned. It was just different enough from the book to offer some surprises without being so far from it as to be just annoying. I want to go back and see it again. The triple digit heat we have is not u... Read more

My cousin and I are both in our mid 50's and have no trouble enjoying sci-fi and fantasy. She went to see HBP at midnight Wednesday morning. I almost invited myself to go with her, then opted to wait until Friday to see the new movie because I h... Read more

I turtled. I am still 233. I ate out. I read until 4:30am one morning. I expected it to be much worse. I have been given a reprieve. The tracker has to be used everyday! The last truth is that I cannot do this unless I use that tr... Read more

Last Saturday, I was down one more pound. For six days I kept the calorie count between 1300 and 1500 calories. Considering the big loss the week before I think one pound was good. Then I realized I was only three pounds from getting back... Read more

A week ago Saturday I returned to Weight Watchers with my DIL. I weighed in, came home and started using the SP nutrition tracker. I faithfully kept my calorie counts between 1300 and 1500 calories. By Thursday, the achy joints and sluggish, s... Read more

Living on the edge makes dieting frustrating, but that is another story. Monday afternoon about 1:00 p.m. I smelled smoke coming from Hubby's room. He has not smoked since before his stay in ICU so I thought I had better check. His window... Read more

We are home and hubby is resting comfortably. He is still on 2 litres of oxygen, but otherwise is healing nicely. The doctor said he had never seen anyone heal so quickly from pneumonia, septic shock and kidney failure. I call it an answer to... Read more

Good News!!!! We all can breathe again. Hubby has turned the corner, emerged from the woods, and is beating a path out of the hospital. I love the new doctor. He came stumbling into the room by the back door tripping over equipment and... Read more

Writing keeps me sane. But this isn't about me or maybe it is because Tom is my other half. Today was a little harder. He seemed to be experiencing more pain. On the other hand they were able to turn down the oxygen three points as he was able t... Read more

Hubby always tells me he doesn't want his picture on the internet, but his kids have him plastered all over their My Space accounts, so I figured I could get away with this one. As long as it is not recognizable he seems fine with it. I love t... Read more

Husband did not need the ventilator. The doctor said he would not give us a prognosis either way. Hubby has worst pneumonia he has ever seen. To quote him: "Normally people in his condition are on a ventilator or not living." I can't make up... Read more
