I am lazy. I have plenty of energy to tackle projects. I frequent the gym. I exercise my mind. I'm pretty darned active. I don't exert much effort when it comes to changing my eating habits. Not the diet, the habits! Since I changed... Read more

I felt sightly ill and entitled yesterday. I skipped the gym with a lot of guilt. DH fed my attitude with a bagel/cream cheese for lunch. Friday, meatless, pizza. 3 slices. Lots of tea. This morning my "out of sorts" is gone and I'... Read more

DH and I take turns sleeping in the guest room to try to let the other have a good night. I guess us "older" folks don't heal as fast as we used to. DD and her kids have been bouncing all over life for the past week seemingly ignorant of the cur... Read more
