My teacher-daughter and son in law went to their first Parent Night at GS' school. I was beyond exhausted and was going to handle the 5 yr old and 2 yr old on my own. Can we watch TV? Oh, yes! The screen lit up with flashing lights, motorcy... Read more

Happy first day of spring for those of you "down under". Fall means back to baking my favorite acorn/butternut squashes and turning them into delicious lunches packed for work. These have been hearty dishes with chicken or simply vegetarian... Read more
Planning vs Goals
Monday, September 21, 2015      15 comments

When I read DOGLADY13s blog from yesterday about planning to help her lose the weight she's gained and help with her injury it got me thinking about plans vs goals. I'm not a goal setter. I think I don't want the end, trudging toward a sing... Read more

How about that? This is one of the few times I can say, Thank you, New Jersey! I took unpaid leave for 7 weeks out of love for my man and never thought of the loss. We had saved for just such an occasion although it was supposed to be at... Read more

It's been nice with so many concerned people. My trainer, Mike, handed me a container of chicken soup for DH today! His wife made it for the holidays and he swears it's the best soup ever. Let you know tomorrow. I've accomplished a lot tha... Read more
Getting on, making mistakes and mucking through.

I keep looking at DH with my "super vision" thinking something isn't right. Since these powers haven't failed me yet, I'm keeping a close watch. It has nothing to do with my giving him a double dose of insulin last night. ... Read more
My first day back to work, some I-told-you-sos and surprizes
Tuesday, September 15, 2015      8 comments

I walked my 2 miles before showering. Gave DH his last minute instructions in case he felt like doing the right thing. I was greeted by a bunch of well wishers, sympathetic wives and it was darned nice to be in a group of people who were ... Read more

I'm very happy with my walking pace of 2.5-3.3 mph. I've got a decent step and know how to use it. emoticon M... Read more
Another step to independence-mine! It comes with a hefty cost in wear and tear
Sunday, September 13, 2015      8 comments

Independence-synonyms: separation, self-determination, sovereignty, autonomy, freedom, liberty, self-sufficiency, self-reliance. I'm extremely self-sufficient, self-determined, self-reliant and enjoy the autonomy of being the boss in an org... Read more
The planted tree.
Friday, September 11, 2015      6 comments

An ornamental cherry tree spreads wide over the front of our elementary school. Its' branches are loaded with pink blossoms in the springtime. It looks pretty in the winter, too when loaded with snow or when its' bare limbs show shapely and colo... Read more

Happy Sunday, worked my bread off!
Sunday, September 06, 2015      4 comments

No worries to those who kindly left comments on my chili bread burn out. I did end up eating the whole thing in two days; an artisan loaf which should have been shared with 7 others according to the nutrition facts. A momentary blip on my otherw... Read more
Happy Saturday! Recovering with a food hangover.
Saturday, September 05, 2015      10 comments

I am suffering the effects of food overload this morning. I had a bit of a meltdown. It started when I went to get my car sunroof fixed for the third time. Argh. I got a cup of coffee and there was a box of the big chocolate chip cookies. I... Read more
Continuing my "Happy Mornings" Blog Streak.

My measured breakfast in, coffee downed and ready to start another thrilling day as care giver, nurse, councilor, chief cook and bottle washer. God, I miss my job! Who would have expected me to say that? ... Read more
