Fall cold, can't blame the little ones

I DID go to the gym Monday and today and rocked it both days. Monday night I started feeling ill so I couldn't blame it on my G-kids! Slight sore throat, a bit nasally, DH is blowing his. I took a rare nap yesterday. Just in time for fly... Read more
Enjoying life and not fretting about the small things

Enjoying life. Yesterday we played Monopoly with the grandkids and DD1. Our banker, GS1, is now a third grader and very competent in his math. GS2 played for a while, lost interest, then I played for him. The best way to end the game occurred ... Read more
The behavior alphabet
Saturday, September 29, 2018      12 comments

I've spent the last two weeks "helping" DH sort his stuff. He calmed down on the idea that I need to help sort his items. Working with him in a non-confrontational attitude has allowed me to view his behaviors. I knew there was an OCD component ... Read more
On being an experiment

I continue to eat well. I've called up those nutrition reports we can access and am delighted to see myself staying within all the targets. I've been able to turn down trigger foods and occasionally have given in but with a limited volume. ... Read more
Trying new things keto
Saturday, September 22, 2018      7 comments

Sure, bagels, muffins and the like are tasty but in my old life could go months without any. I've proved I can live without them. Today at my cousin's urging (nagging) I made one of the 90 second keto breads and prepared a breakfast sandwich w... Read more

After 30 years I learned Mrs Kim's first name today minutes before she drove away to her new life! We shared a bunch of tears and smiles while wishing each other good fortune for the future. Gosh, it's sad. Although we exchanged phone numbers I ... Read more
Learning from my Spark buddies
Monday, September 17, 2018      13 comments

ONEKIDSMOM and WATERMELLEN have had some good words today that I'm hijacking for how I am learning to eat. I've finally found something that works for me and have managed to almost reach my short goal for October first. Things I've learned?... Read more
Rambling blog, a bit of exercise and fun evening.
Saturday, September 15, 2018      8 comments

Last night several fun, funny things happened. Not so funny, DD1 was involved in a 5 car pileup on her way to work in the morning and ultimately was slammed by two cars who didn't stop while a fender bender was being investigated on the roa... Read more

Working on it.

Yesterday I pulled the vegetable garden plants no longer producing or looking tired. The squirrels had eaten the bottoms of the big tomatoes and dug around to hide their stashes! I harvested at least 10 Ancho chilies to throw in the freezer. Al... Read more

Will someone please tell me what the heck to do about this weight loss stall? My diet has never been better. Cleaner. Junk free. Well controlled. I'm not hungry, I'm not sneaking. I'm tracking everything. 1150-1350 calories a day by choice.... Read more
Sitting on babies, not so easy any more!
Monday, September 03, 2018      14 comments

When DD1 first asked me to watch the three kids so they could attend a wedding, I hesitatingly said yes. DH is cute but no help. He wants to snuggle, not play on the floor. The dynamics of three is very apparent and the pairings are rough and tu... Read more
