Hard decisions made!
Monday, February 18, 2008      2 comments

I must apologize to everyone who has been following my progress through this whole thing. I let myself get so busy that I haven't had time to sit and write a blog to let everyone know what's going on in my life. There have definitely been chan... Read more
On Turning 55
Thursday, November 15, 2007      1 comments

EEEK! Am I really that "Old?" I don't feel like I am, and certainly I'm not mature enough to be that old. It's been a whirlwind week of celebration. I have managed to keep it undercontrol, but barely. I have continued to work out with ... Read more
Update -- I am doing this!

It hasn't been a whole month since my last entry, but what the hey! The shoulder has been doing well with the cortisone shot, but now that is wearing off, it is a bit sore. I am not able to do much arm strength training right now, but that... Read more
Doctor Results
Saturday, September 01, 2007      2 comments

Well, the doctor I found for my shoulder is super! He listens, had a lot of humor, and was perceptive. He tested the range of motion in my shoulder, and picked up when it hurt before I said anything. Turns out I have a partial tear in onl... Read more
Doctor tomorrow
Friday, August 31, 2007      2 comments

With persistance, I found a cancelled appointment for Friday morning. My boss isn't expecting me to be on time, and I have to be at the doctor's office at 8:00 am. DH is going with me, I think it makes hime feel better since he can't drive, an... Read more
Challenges, again!
Thursday, August 30, 2007      3 comments

It is hard to be "good" in this lifestyle when all you want to do is lay down and cry. My injured right shoulder has been really painful today, and I can't find a doctor to see about it. It is very discouraging. I went to work, and they asked... Read more
Horse shows are times of thinking, too
Monday, August 20, 2007      3 comments

I have been mostly MIA this past week because I have been at a horse show. Did really well, and earned some really great scores for some of the work we've been doing. I also learned a lot about my relationship with my horse, my riding, and dea... Read more
I don't mean for this to be only a monthly thing, but.....
Thursday, August 09, 2007      3 comments

I mean to get in here weekly to blog what's gone on that week, but as they say, "Best laid plans of mice and men". August has been a difficult month this year. I spent a week in Albuquerque at my mother's house playing construction as we m... Read more
Is it really July?????
Monday, July 02, 2007      2 comments

I know from the heat outside that July has found Arizona. It is supposed to be 114 on Wednesday, the day I must drive to Albuquerque. In Albuquerque an interesting project awaits me. My mom is looking to start living on her own, and she i... Read more
OK, so here we go again
Monday, June 18, 2007      2 comments

Crawled on the scale at the gym today, and guess what! It was over my home scale by the same amount as the doctor's scale. AAAWEERRGH! So I have adjusted my ticker and have rededicated my home and my life to a renewed effort to make this ... Read more
How can this be???
Saturday, June 02, 2007      1 comments

OK, so my doctor has to buy a new scale. I went to see him about being dizzy, and I crawl on his scale to find it says that I am up 20# from where I was 2 years ago. IMPOSSIBLE! I am down from a 24 to an 18, and I am getting out of those pant... Read more
Set Back
Saturday, May 19, 2007      0 comments

I am a little discouraged. My riding is curtailed for a bit, and I miss it. I have a horse show the end of June, and I am a bit stressed that I can't work on practicing for it. I have fallen again, this time without being on a horse. Put... Read more
We did it!

It won't mean much to most of you, but I earned my first Dover Amateur Medal this weekend. I was shocked! I won the class well ahead of the other riders, and didn't realize it was the Dover class. The sweetest thing was that it was delivered ... Read more
Big debut coming!
Wednesday, May 09, 2007      0 comments

Actually, I am a little nervous going into this show this weekend, and I don't know why. I have done this lots of times and have been to these show grounds several times. So has Falcao. But I know I can do well and will work to get my e... Read more
Back closer to normal....
Monday, May 07, 2007      0 comments

Well, whatever normal is. I did Pilates today and found that there were no stretches that were off limits. I can finally do a side stretch to the left. No protests from the body. Feels so good to be active again. We are now working to equal... Read more
