Sure, that sounds silly considering the past 6 months, but heck there was nothing else to do! DH has had a few really good days so I said let's go see. We've spent countless days at RV shows in the past getting painful quad exercises stepping ... Read more

While I was dutifully logging in for the 366th day in a row, I was distracted by some large movement outside. These guys came to play. My camera was still set for the night sky so my pictures are not what I'd like. And my movements disturbed t... Read more

Changing up my diet. It's not easy and a long time coming.

I'm not sure how it happened, but I got it. I've had weeks of good, large and healthy meals. No hunger. No deprivation moments. Perhaps the consistent exercise days are contributing. Having less anxiety about what to make for the two of u... Read more

It should be simple. It is. It's our minds that are complicated! I kept over-thinking trying to make foods for the two of us that we'd both like. I'd eat the wrong things and get frustrated that food was going to waste, so I'd eat it. ... Read more

I gave myself 30 days to accept my fate and not fight it. It's been tough and though sometimes I am not the brightest of bulbs; I've seen the light. Displays of temper, crying fits, throwing things or slamming doors (the last two my favorit... Read more

It's an opportunity to slow my pace for a moment and think about those who have fallen protecting my freedom. It's a day I set aside to try to find a ceremony honoring those heroes. It is also a day to remember the sacrifices of all wh... Read more
