So eager for this. My internist gave me the phone number to get scheduled last Friday, but it was after hours then. Yesterday I saw him but didn't get home early enough to call. Today I had a mild consternation about "press 1 for " thus-and-such... Read more

I'm planning to give up beef for Lent, so tonight I'm finishing the other half of a piece of beef, eggplant parmesan for tomorrow night. I have 6 different recipes for eggplant parm on my laptop, so I'll try all of them the next 6 weeks & delete... Read more

I had my all-wool rugs (my bedroom, the guest room, living room, & dining room) picked up for cleaning in July before I went to Michigan for what turned out to be 2 months, told them I'd let them know when I was back to return them. I had 2 call... Read more

Confession: I am a political junkie; I spent most of yesterday & this morning listening/watching first the Washington Post webcast, then PBS until 11 PM, then MSNBC until 4 AM, then to bed & slept until 11:30. I missed seeing Trump's exhortation... Read more

A relative and her twin sister were pregnant this summer. One hatched in early September, her twin 2 weeks later. I've knitted 2 baby sweaters 3-6 months size, & sent them, but the elder baby now weighs 3 times as much as his cousin & has, I ass... Read more
Another 7 pounds!
Wednesday, October 28, 2020      5 comments

I can scarcely believe it! Saw my internist today, weighed myself, was stunned, asked to try a different scale, got permission, **same** result! Even more stunned. I haven't been exercising at all but have little to no appetite; but 7 pounds i... Read more
Weight Loss!
Friday, September 11, 2020      6 comments

I simply can't believe it. I've had a digestive system upset for 3 weeks, I fell Friday night & hit my head, & my MD got me to have a CT scan. While I was at the hospital for the scan, I persuaded its staff to let me use a scale - I don't have o... Read more

First since March, when I had foot surgery, & haven't been able to fully immerse said foot. Shower yes, soak no. I -have- cut the toenails - I'm not Howard Hughes - but hadn't been able to get the cuticles trimmed. The feet felt sooo good in th... Read more

I'm just home from PT, & MUST go back to sleep for at least an hour. A little dizzy after one of the exercises for my neck, & she had me do that one 4 different times during the hour - retract the chin & hold for 5 seconds, 20 times. And she sai... Read more

in re feeling so bummed last Friday, I woke up Saturday morning (mentally) singing the Dorothy Fields/ Jerome Kern song Pick Yourself Up. There's a Frank Sinatra recording you probably have heard, but I prefer the Catherine Russell version, or t... Read more
a1c improved, but I am so bummed
Friday, July 26, 2019      3 comments

The a1c is down to 8.2, from over 9 3 months ago, but I am so discouraged. My scale has been deceiving me, underweighing by 13 pounds. No, I haven't lost & gained back - it's been lying consistently. Bought a new one 2 weeks ago because I didn't... Read more

And I don't mean sexy. It's over-warm outdoors, & I'm going to back & forth in my building's air-conditioned (!) hall for at least 15 minutes.... Read more

Went to the Art Institute of Chicago today with my eldest cousin, who is in from Orcas Island, WA for his grand-nephew's christening tomorrow. There is an Edouard Manet traveling exhibit on now until early September - we enjoyed greatly; also sa... Read more

The laptop's anti-virus caught one Saturday evening, so I hurried over to the Geek Squad Monday morning to get it de-bugged. Apparently when it nails a bug, it also removes the step in a program that the virus attacked, so the startup didn't wor... Read more
