Sleep. We all know the value.

I must have finally become too exhausted to sleep lightly. I barely work up at one point, warm, wondering if I should remove my covers. I rolled over without looking at the clock. No potty trips, no DH waking me up on his potty trips. I woke... Read more
What happened to September? What happened to time?

Random thoughts. It seems it was August yesterday. It seems my first child was born yesterday; she's going on 36! The bride and groom in my wedding pictures from 1978 look like babies. I remember 1972 like it was yesterday (it was a p... Read more

I took my walk this morning. The voice in my pocket, courtesy of Samsung and a phone app, told me I was "Almost there, you're doing great" "Average speed 3.9 miles per hour" I had to walk around a car stopped in the intersection. The driv... Read more

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
Random thoughts for the first day of fall.

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
I found out I get paid for my nursing DH. Whoa!

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

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

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
