This morning I braved the 6:30 AM traffic AND the dark to go to DD1s house. She went away, SIL1 had an early meeting and I got to wait for the bus with the boys. Here's what met me at 7AM. Hugs from boys with bed-hair, sleepy eyed and hungr... Read more

Three nights in the past 18 days I've had real ice cream. Three bagels with cream cheese, one without in those 18 days. Deconstructed cookies (peanut butter, oats, nuts and a bit of sugar) as a snack. I had lunch with my BFF yeste... Read more

Those of you who are long time followers know my issues with DH's hoarding some items. He relented to my "help" and in a matter of months I've helped him organize to where we've neatly stacked shelves in our outdoor shed and emptied a 8x10 stora... Read more

I don't know who took over my body on the weekend. That person started Friday with a gifted bagel and cream cheese from DH. He was so proud he went to the gym by himself and immediately fell into an old habit. Exercise/reward. I willingl... Read more

Last night I was uncomfortable from activities helping DH clean/sort the garage. Reaching and bending, all done in good form but still more that I should. I kept having hamstring cramps, stayed up a good bit and fell back to sleep in the spare b... Read more

Considering I have two physicians who have told me exercises I cannot and should do, I've been experimenting in the gym. I get good results avoiding some and not enough oomph with others. I will continue my quest today.... Big news on the... Read more

I cannot have my cake and eat it too. I am one of "those" people who has to finish all of something so that it's gone. Don't know why, but there it is. I feel better knowing I am not alone in this and have like-minded Spark friends help m... Read more

I'm not going to blog daily, but hey, It's Day 1! I'm suffering a sluggish "inside" due to food hangover. For the first, and last, time ever, I prepared lobster tail on the barbie. It was too much work for me; dang those things are ha... Read more
