Today was my first day at the fitness center in AGES! Luckily for me, SN (Spandex Nazi) was back from 4 days of family fun at the lake so she herself was NOT in the mood for the usual 75 minutes of nonstop torture. She kept apologizing f... Read more

Sunday, May 30, 2010      5 comments

Boy, did we have fun on that cruise. Believe it or not, I actually did some things well -- walked 3 miles on the track several days and used the fitness room treadmills on several others. We did the stretching class. We ordered room service f... Read more

Hi sports fans! I am slowly but surely catching up with all my sparkfriends. Hard to believe Sparkland survived my absence! (ha ha) Anyway, I'm doing well jumping back into things, BUT here it is only DAY 3 back from the cruise and I... Read more

Picking a fight, picking your nose, picking sides? Nope, picking FRUIT! Today we picked 3 gallons of blueberries from a farm near our house. They are ripe, plentiful, and beautiful! I will prepare them simply by picking out the ste... Read more

I could do another WOE IS ME blog but after reading Vandal's I guess he's got it a lot worse! However, I spent 1.5 hours at the doctor yesterday (for 10 minutes in the presence of THE GREAT AND POWERFUL OZ) and found out I have a sinus infe... Read more
Back, and Rambling to Boot
Tuesday, May 04, 2010      4 comments

I finally got on the scale and not surprisingly it wasn't kind. I'm up 6.25 pounds, so solidly back in the 160's, which I totally deserve and more. However, it wasn't too long ago that I was proud to be at this weight so it goes to show th... Read more

Our old neighbor died last night. He was the closest thing to family that we have in Arkansas. He and TC were great friends. One of the greatest gifts I've ever gotten in my life was when James came over with a hand-made quilt that his wi... Read more

Thanks to everyone for the cheering on and cheering UP yesterday. You are sooooo appreciated. I'm also amazed by how many teachers there are in our group...apparently we ALL know those "6-hour employees!" But as much as I resent them I really... Read more
