I'm looking 'up' even though 'things' are not
Tuesday, October 12, 2010      3 comments

I mentioned yesterday that I'm struggling with some issues. Well, none of the situations have changed, but my attitude is a little better. (Thank you to those of you who prayed) . I thank God that He has kept me from gorging on bad-for-me foo... Read more
Monday's moan

I've taken a shower just now, so I may begin to feel human again soon. Before my shower, I painted for six hours....just took a 15 minute break for lunch. We're not finished yet, but at least we've made good headway today. That, and the fact... Read more
We started painting the master bedroom today
Saturday, October 09, 2010      2 comments

We had to 'scuff' (sand) all the shiny surfaces (they'd been painted with oil paint), and that took 2-1/2 hrs this morning. After lunch, I crawled around on my hands and knees, painting all the baseboards. That took another 2-1/2 hrs. I'm bus... Read more
bedroom, continued

Yes, we should have painted it before getting new carpet (which looks nice, by the way), but we didn't think of it. We are planning to buy paint shortly and get started on the walls and trim. The carpet does look nice, but is more mustard-colo... Read more

We're to get new bedroom carpeting tomorrow, so today was move-everything-out-of-the-bed
room day. It took 2-1/2 hrs and I'm bushed! To give you some idea, we have a headboard w/an attached light bridge, all attached to two tall (heavy!) '... Read more

I just spent a WONDERFUL weekend in Roanoke, VA at the annual conference. Friday evening we were splitting our sides laughing at Chondra Pierce, then thoroughly enjoyed a mini-concert by Mercy Me. Saturday, we had several inspirational speaker... Read more

I stayed ahead of whatever pain there was, and am not even on aspirin or Tylenol today. Thank you, God. I am MOST grateful. My mouth is still somewhat sore - not painful - but it will get better each day. Enuf dental talk! Friday noon, ... Read more

God is SO good! I don't have a specific thing to tell, but just that I'm rejoicing that God IS SO GOOD! Just got home from yet another dental appt. (I think I'm paying for his 5 new computers all by myself). He finished the prep work for... Read more
Fall IS here!
Monday, September 27, 2010      1 comments

Today is rainy, and only in the mid-60's - a teeny bit cooler than 'normal' for us. But I'm celebrating the fact that we aren't 92 degrees, as we were a few days ago! I also am thanking God (profusely) for the gentle, steady much-needed ra... Read more

"They" tell us it's fall (or autumn), but someone forgot to tell 'Mother Nature' - it was 90 degrees yesterday and today is supposed to be the same! Our normal average temp this time of year is the mid-70's. We had the AC off for many days, bu... Read more

I bought The Spark months and months ago, but it only collected dust until recently I started reading it while treadmilling. I'd lost weight while on SP, but 'plateau-ed' then regained some of it. I'm unhappy w/myself for doing that. Then... Read more
Uh-oh, scary article
Wednesday, September 01, 2010      1 comments

I just read a health article on SP that seems to be saying that people who are mentally active (such as enjoying crosswords puzzles for a long time) will show greater decline if alzheimer's hits. Hmmmm. Too bad. I'm going to keep on doing thi... Read more
