Still On Track
It's getting really warm here but I'm getting in my walk and bicycle work every day including Sunday. I made two massive food bobbles last week but I'm paying for them with extra work. My appetite is almost nil since my surgery so most days have... Read more
Came home 6 weeks ago from knee replacement at one of my highest weights ever but thank God I've lost 19 pounds. I'm going back to work in 10 days and want to lose 20 by then, at least. I've walked a full mile once but I'm not quite ready for th... Read more
She's Back - Sort Of!
Following my accident just over a year ago, I was diagnosed with mTBI, PCS, and PseudoBulbar Affect, which is a kind way of saying my brain got all shook up. It has been a long year, peppered with physical therapy, neurologist/neuropsychologist ... Read more
Life Curve: TBI
So I was sitting at a red light waiting for it to change on March 31 when a woman decided to commit suicide by vehicle and crossed two lanes of heavy oncoming traffic to make a left turn.

Green Hand But Back Is Better!
I've had enough energy today to get most of what I didn't get done yesterday, done today-cleaning, etc. The back of my right hand is wall to wall green but my back is starting to lose the soreness.
When I see the PA in about a month, I wil... Read more
Not a Great Two Days
Went for epidural injections yesterday with mixed results so far. IV infiltrated and sedation went into my hand so naturally I didn't stay still when the needles hit-all four of them. At least it was over pretty quick. Today I have a sore hand a... Read more
Dusted Off the Treadmill
When we remodeled 3+ years ago, the fancy treadmill out in the garage got folded up and pushed against the wall and I gained 20 pounds. Maybe these two facts are related, maybe not. Anyway, this morning I got my rear in gear and scooted that suc... Read more
Made It Through Week 1 of 2016
Back to school; back pain; back in the greenhouse:
School started off on a roll with and intake of 34 new inmate students. The only bad thing about being a good teacher is that I have massive rollouts every 3 1/2 months when guys test up to... Read more
Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled
Jesus Christ is still the great I am!
Isaiah 43, my pastor's text today, and also my favorite scriptures in the Word tell me:
1 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I ... Read more
First Saturday of 2016
Weather totally not being cooperative, I still haven't done my yard chores except for caring for the birds. Otherwise I have decluttered, caught up on reading, etc. and am starting to get that feeling of dread that comes with thinking of going b... Read more
I'm giving Goodies for every blog I read through Sunday. Why have 50 gazillion points if you don't do anything with them, right?
Giving myself permission is going to be a them this year, I limit myself to one chapter in 10 books at a time ... Read more
If I Read Your Blog Today, I Gave You a Goodie!
Aha, now that got your attention. I've spent a bit of time today reflecting on the past year. All of us owe to ourselves to do that. I've decided all things being equal, 2015 was a pretty good year. I end it with no new debts for Christmas spend... Read more
Lookout for Lazy Blogger Alert
No lazy so much as swamped with life. But I am still here and I am still working toward better health and weight loss. Mom and I did really well with our food choices from Thanksgiving all the way until now. Lots of fruit and vegetables, and pul... Read more
Still Eating Homegrown Veggies
Just picked a couple of nice zucchini and brought in a half dozen tomatoes from the greenhouse to go in my mesclun greens for a salad. After the brutal spring and summer we had, plus the last month's rains I cannot believe we still have crops. W... Read more

Puppies, Puppies Everywhere
The last week has been so intense that I had to step back a couple of days before I could look at one more plea for a dog, puppies, cats, or kittens to be rescued before they had to be killed. By now, several hundred have died. Because of the th... Read more
