And so it begins. Living through the ups and downs of buying a home. At least I'm not the only one warning them how mind-numbing the process is. 130 year old home. Updated plumbing, new heater, water heater, windows and appliances. BUUUUUUT... Read more

I chose enough leftovers to keep me happy but not overwhelmed. My SIL2 grinned at the weight of the bag and DD2 swears he'll have it all gone by Sunday. The grands were shepherded over by their parents on the way to their feast at another r... Read more

You'd think I'm preparing for 40 people when it's only 4 of us plus the 9 pound dog who eats no people food. I don't want to spend Thanksgiving in the kitchen so I am cooking ahead! I know a lot of you do too so have fun. When it's all... Read more

Today is my last therapy session for these danged, overused and abused hamstrings, IT ligaments and inflamed bursas. I now get up in the morning without hamstring pain and have learned how to keep more limber. I'm stuck with the inflamed gr... Read more

Who knew at the ripe age of 65 I'd find I was moving incorrectly? I noticed I was starting to sway when I walked. My hips and hamstrings were hurting and some of my exercises were suspect in these aches. My therapist worked with me to chang... Read more

DH is happily snoring on the couch wearing his "cataract sunglasses" after having his other eye done this morning. Superman with super-vision under supervision! It was funny to see my charmer in action with all the ladies at the surgical cent... Read more
