Yesterday started as any typical day. I get up at 5 read, the news, Spark, etc then have a good breakfast in peace. I get DH up at 8ish and his morning routine takes about 2 hours and now it's 11 and he looks ready to fall back asleep. What do... Read more

216.8 pounds. I refuse to round up. The last time I placed an official weight on SP was 12/2/15 and I was 209. It took 2 months to put on 9 pounds. Since I have been home with DH I have lost the extensive walking I was doing at work. The... Read more

Finding the right snacks. 6 days to completion....

This is a tough one. It's not that it would be easier if I was working; I'd still be snacking when I got home. As long as I have the psychological need to have something, I'm going to have something easy and healthy. Chewing gum is not an op... Read more
Sitting around doing "nothing" made me feel yucky (for a better word).

My intention yesterday was to get DH out of the house and on a road trip by 11 am to get him moving. That didn't happen because he fell into a really deep sleep for hours. Once he's down like that there's no sense in trying to go out. However,... Read more
Vey short term goals seem to be working.

Nana to the rescue again last night! This time GS2 decided it would be more appropriate to sleep ON me than the bed. I beefed up my sleeping mat between the twin beds and was much more comfortable. As the three of us were discussing things, as... Read more

No, not the "I forgot" kind. As I was typing this morning I noticed a red spot on my hand and closed my fist to see if it was bruised. I had Nana hands! My mother's hands My Nana's hands. When did my skin start thinning so I cou... Read more

Caretaker. Caregiver. It's been 3 months since I "retired" to care for my husband. I have accepted things I must do to keep him going. I haven't given full thought to the things that should keep me going. Sometimes I feel I've lost my mind and... Read more

Does anyone else have difficulties with all these pop ups? If it's my computer, I'll take the hint that it's getting old. It took me almost 5 minutes to put in my simple breakfast in the nutrition tracker. I had to wait for the commercials on ... Read more

I enjoyed my snoventure this week. I had fun all by myself making my snownana and following her adventures even though she is now headless! DD1 was in and out of the hospital again. The doctors say she should deliver in the next week or two... Read more
I've been thinking about playgrounds and came up with a plan.

Spark has been my emotional playground. I've spread some joy, vented, asked questions and given answers while running around in the grass. I've jumped on the spinning thing that you have to hang on to for dear life or you'll be flung off. (Fat L... Read more

Funny that nature took my snow build and changed it up to follow my life. What gives? Is there something at work here showing me how things are going? I built a robust, solid "replica". ... Read more

I had tables turned on me yesterday. I am usually the one to go the extra step or out of my way to help someone. My snow thrower stopped working at the end (thank goodness!) of the last big snow. I scheduled a service to come to my home bu... Read more
