This morning was story time. Since the local school has classes for 3 and 4 year olds, as well as all day kindergarten, the little ones are who are left for story time. Although they may be cute, it is often hard to share a funny story with them... Read more

It may not be perfect, but it is my goal, to get to bed, or head that way, when the two hands meet at the top of the twelve. That usually assures me of 7 to 8 hours sleep, depending on back pain, and how quickly I can get to sleep. So, I ha... Read more

Let's face it, sometimes we all hate what we do, and other times we absolutely love it. Most of the time, and I really really mean that, I love what I do. I am a librarian. Nope, I do not wear my hair in a bun, but I do have glasses. I am not t... Read more

Do you remember that movie? Lily Tomlin? I remember how she would climb in that great big chair and pretend she was a little girl. Sometimes I feel that way with how short I am. When I went to the Dr. this week, I found out that I am shrink... Read more

Well, I got back from the spine Doc today, and the nerve damage in my neck has affected my left arm due to the 2 herniated discs, stenosis and bone spurs. Looks like surgery is on the horizon, but probably still a way off due to it being Worker'... Read more

It seems that certain aspects of nutrition, movement and exercise are taking root. Even my metabolism seems to be saying "Let's go!" It is just the hurting parts that want to curl up with a warm blanket. Yet, moving warms up the muscles and make... Read more

In July when I hit 205 at the Doc's office, I started eating less. Because of my back injury, my movement has been limited for over a year. In Sept when I went back to PT, I asked for exercises because I was (and am) determined to lose weight, s... Read more
