So, it's been a couple of weeks since I've written anything. Life is pretty much the same. Once the clothes purging ended I lost my cleaning momentum and have not regained it yet. That tends to stress me out as son's wedding is in about 7 wee... Read more

Saturday, May 18, 2013      11 comments

With some spring weather finally rolling around, I have been eager to clean out closets, drawers, etc. Ready to get rid of items that don't fit or that I don't wear anymore. I have lots of clothes (read that *too many*) from my teaching days a... Read more

Well, sort of. I have been on Spark since December 2009 (I think). In almost 3 1/2 years I have lost a grand total of 5 pounds and have gained 3; leaving a grand total of minus 2 pounds in over 3 years. Not a very good statistic. I have bee... Read more

I have not done any exercise since January 10th. During the holidays it was hit or miss. On the 17th I had my "accident" so for the next 7 days or so I was just trying to get somewhat back to normal. On Tuesday (29th) I had spiraled into a bl... Read more

So a little over a week since the accident. I am feeling much better but am a little discouraged with the nagging pain I have in different parts of my body (i.e., knee, thumbs, finger, etc) Still have a little swelling by my eye and on the bri... Read more

OK! I can hardly believe this happened myself!! It was like an out of body experience. Daughter and I headed to national harbor on Thursday with the two kiddos. Found the new Children's Museum--no problem. Parked in garage across the street... Read more

Last week (12/12/12) we said goodbye to our sweet Toby. The vet arrived at our house at 8:30 am. He is so kind and gentle. We were so happy we could give Toby this last gift of saying goodbye on his favorite sofa in our laps. It, obviousl... Read more

I've been thinking about getting going on this blog but life keeps intruding. I could probably write at least 3 different blogs at this point. First of all, since Thanksgiving my enthusiasm has waned a bit. I'm still walking, lifting weights... Read more
