Back to the business of working, living and getting through the days.
Saturday, June 06, 2015      7 comments

There may be routine in my life but nothing is "normal". Changes at work, changes in my attitude and certainly changes at home. Still waiting for a final diagnosis for my DH. He enjoyed our vacation from the car, couch and bed. He managed a ... Read more

I have returned from a wonderful 2 weeks totally off the grid. DH, his DB and DS and the respective spouses took our first vacation together. Between us we have 7 children and 12 grand children. How did we manage no contact? Go someplace time ... Read more

I'll be off for another long adventure. This one promises lots of exertion, card playing, eating, pranks, driving, siblings and spouses. We will be semi-tour guides for what may be our last vacation together. So off we go and I'll shar... Read more

I'm getting my @$$ kicked and all I am doing is stretching. And isometrics. And the dreadmill. And the arm bike. I hurt, in a good way. It shows already after two weeks of PT for my shoulder and my new daily workouts. There's truth to... Read more

Funny thing about balance; strike a pose. I have none.
Sunday, May 10, 2015      9 comments

Balance, or lack thereof, really is a funny thing. In order to assess the damage time and personal stupidity has ravaged on this body, my continually smiling trainer had me complete some basic poses. I started giggling like a school girl. ... Read more

I did not like the nurse. Strike that. I liked the nurse well enough. He was 6 ft tall, very handsome but not at all susceptible to my charm. He told me I was only 5'5". Wrong, buddy! I ran home and had DH measure me I'm still 5'6" (w... Read more

Imagine having your bathroom replaced by a professional. This was 2002, a month after I started my last job. I couldn't be there and had long days. We've always had low water pressure and I noticed the shower was less forceful than I rememb... Read more
Maintenance and changes in eating. Living in fight or flight mode.
Saturday, April 25, 2015      10 comments

It's not the kind of maintenance I'd jump up and down about, but at least my weight is not jumping up and down! Life's been pretty chaotic. Home sucks. Something at work finally made me cry. The worse it gets, the less I blog. Imagine that. You'... Read more
Cheap or frugal? Going out to eat and assessing portions and value.

We went out to eat for my birthday. My daughter and the two little guys were the hosts. She took us to a seafood restaurant they frequent. I had sticker shock for dinner. As I viewed the menu, all of it tempting, I tried not to look at the... Read more
