We were led to a table in a not so crowded restaurant tonight. I immediately remarked how warm it was and a lady sitting alone at the table next to us chimed in with a comment. We held a pleasant conversation for several minutes while awaiting o... Read more
Knees, not so bad.

I like my doctor. No nonsense, let's get right to it. The x-rays of both my knees show I have cartilage that's worn a bit thin but both knees should be viable for a good amount of time. That's what I wanted to know; how long can they last?... Read more
Prevention begins at the sink. Common sense for an uncommon time.

Use soap and water. Sing "Happy Birthday" TWICE as you twirl those digits together. DO NOT SKIMP! We should be doing this anytime, not only when there's a sneaky virus looming in the news. Hand sanitizers may kill some germs but they... Read more

I see the knee doc on Tuesday. My BFF is ice right now although it doesn't seem to help much. This is nagging more than painful but it's the back of my knee so sitting in chairs hits the "right" spot! I rocked the gym yesterday increasing ma... Read more

I got a text from DD1 cancelling Pilates training today. My SIL1 has a flu. He got the flu vaccine. DD1 did NOT get the vaccine and she feels awful. I offered to help so I've put myself in the mouth of the lion. I haven't gotten a response yet. ... Read more

DH survived his procedures yesterday. Multiple biopsies will tell all but his doctor seemed unconcerned. Unfortunately I think this will mean a repeat in 2 years. I'll be 2 years older to try to survive this myself! DD1 held her 40th birthd... Read more

It's got nothing to do with anyone or anything here. I've been exercising my buns off (I wish). Walks in malls as it's been too damply chilly. I've changed up my Monday and ride the bike for 30 minutes then work out in the pool while DH i... Read more

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
