Gee whizz. Hurricanes, floods, fires and earthquake. Famine and pestilence follows. Packing nonperishables I bought may make me feel better having donated a "physical" thing, but I'd rather give funds to someone who can increase the pur... Read more

My first GS turned 7 yesterday. He's a self-proclaimed expert of oh, so many things! Friday he read me a funny book while jumping up and down, twirling around, hopping on one foot all the while doing what little boys do; hanging onto boy thing... Read more
September already. Time for fall motivation.

I like seeing crisp, blues skies and yellow leaves. I like the smell of piles of leaves; maybe from childhood memories of jumping in them! There is also something therapeutic in clearing out the jungle of my garden as plants wither in the fall. ... Read more

I continue to look for my constant shadow as I walk through the house. No one is biting my pajama bottoms. Scratching at the bathroom door. Sticking a horribly soaked chewed toy in my hand for a tug of war. Leaving surprises near the pee pad ins... Read more

I changed my page to reflect some beautiful things. By following instructions with medications, even getting up every several hours in the night, I dogged a bullet. Today the doctor said "Congratulations, this looks great!" ... Read more

This whole eye thing has been a humbling experience. Annoying to boot and thanks to ONEKIDSMOM for the shoutout. I am watching Chewy while the kids are across the pond visiting family and I was given permission by my MD to be able to walk the... Read more

Nothing worse than hearing "We'll have to work on that " from my eye doctor. Everything is lemon-lime and cloudy. Apparently I am not having a fairy tale recovery. Sigh. Tired of laying on my side with my nose to the floor. Hmmmpf. ... Read more

Two weeks ago, with doctor permission, I managed to get in over 8,000 steps but that was the day I noticed vision changes had reoccurred. Argh! Ah, talking like the pirate I have become! I've been sidelined for over 4 weeks now and there's ... Read more

Today my doctor is happy as the surgery went very well. (I thought it was interesting from my viewpoint) My eye is pretty good although my body has some strange healing habits and he hopes it doesn't interfere with things. Drops every 2 hours... Read more
Reruns, or; I think I saw this before.

Actually I'm having the bigger surgery. My retina continues to detach in other places even though what he fixed looks great. Oh, well. At least I don't have to be awake for this one. ... Read more
Tomatoes in abundance, or; my kitchen is messy.

I live in the Garden State home to those "Jersey fresh" tomatoes. This year my tiny garden has one particular plant that produces tomatoes the size of grapefruit! It's an heirloom called Cherokee Purple. The seed spaces are rather green and it... Read more
