On my blog yesterday, Biglittlewoman asked how far we had to go to visit our new grandchild? She must be psychic! As I said, my daughter and I have not always had the best relationship. In fact we seem to get along better when we are ... Read more

We found out on January 11 that my dad's cancer is back. Since it's in his head it's obviously close to his brain. They offered more radiation/chemo but my dad said "To hell with that!" So now the prognosis is 2 weeks to 2 years. I'm guessin... Read more
HEY FAT GIRL!
Monday, January 14, 2013      19 comments

"Hey, Fat Girl. Yes, you. The one feigning to not see me when we cross paths on the running track. The one not even wearing sports gear, breathing heavy. You’re slow, you breathe hard and your efforts... at moving forward make you cringe. ... Read more

Well, I did it! Managed to finish the half marathon in 3 hours, 31 minutes. Not our best time but my only goal was to complete it. The pulled muscle in my glute is sore but OK; as long as I kept my stride short it seemed fine. I think the gl... Read more

Sunday, January 06, 2013      7 comments

This recipe came from my cousin Debbie. Sadly, she committed suicide at age 50 which was a total shock to everyone, especially her husband and three children. I can't make this recipe without thinking of her, and it's always a reminder for me ... Read more
