Dare I say I was a friendly, popular addition to the midnight to AM shift at the hospital? When I had a break or needed coffee and someone to keep me awake I'd travel to Labor and Delivery where there always was a fresh pot brewing and various s... Read more

Partial success! Alas, the one box spring was mostly "spring"! Spring steel, that is. It couldn't be done but we found reasonably priced foldable box springs on line at many retailers. My British SIL said it's common in the UK with the smal... Read more

Super parents to the rescue! More like we have the full compliment of tools that the new homeowners haven't yet collected! Our goal? A 19th century farmhouse does not have a stairwell to accommodate a queen-sized box spring! The mattre... Read more

New (pricey) oven, check. Free removal, check. Pete the installer removing the old one and installing the new one for $150 while I don't have to lift a finger, PRICELESS! The issue of the old one was the manufacturer gave up on those ... Read more

My cold is gone! My heel feels better except when I lay on my back and it's the weight point for my foot. I really did hurt it "good". ... Read more

Gym done. My morning after assessment is good! I didn't fall apart but I didn't sweat much. Nothing hurts this morning although my repaired knee is picking up fluid again, giving me notice that nothing is forever! It didn't stop me from c... Read more

It's weird how a common cold can totally upset my routine and my diet. I guess I gave in. The past 6 weeks haven't been my best with hurting my heel and my back giving me fits. Holidays and feasts. I simply caved. I was eating fine and then... Read more

It wasn't the blog I was going to write but it works! 42 years ago there was 3 feet of snow, roads and businesses were closed and we were young. Our "first" wedding was in the chapel with family. There was no other way and since we were l... Read more

Some thoughts on my Mediterranean plan (Eating Well 30 day plan). I'm eating foods I've avoided. Complex carbs. I'm eating more seafood. I'm eating enough to keep me full. Perhaps that's the cold talking but I'll let the food take cred... Read more
