Day 11 - Another picture of you and your friends
Tuesday, December 14, 2010      0 comments

This is tough. I really have very few pictures of me and my friends. Since I'm the one with the camera, and the one who loves taking pictures, and who hated seeing herself in pictures when I had gained so much weight, there are literally NO pi... Read more
Day 10 - Songs you listen to when you are happy, sad, bored, hyper, mad
Monday, December 13, 2010      1 comments

I love music and frequently have it on in the background of my life! You name it, rock, r & b, jazz, swing, classic, folk, opera, even ol' timey--just about anything but country music. I like Johnny Cash, but that's about all the country I can ... Read more

Day 6 - Your favorite Superhero and why
Tuesday, December 07, 2010      0 comments

(This is going to be a VERY SHORT blog!) I've never been "into" superheroes. I'm sure the idea of extraordinary strength or power must have been appealing to me at some point in my life, but this is just something I can't remember rela... Read more

Monday, March 01, 2010      2 comments

Actually, if all goes well I will only have 5 weeks and 2 more days in my "boot." This is SO hard. There are so many things I want to do, and shouldn't if I want my tendon to heal. The problem is--there are NO Guarantees. I'm not guarant... Read more
Last day of February--I hope March is better
Sunday, February 28, 2010      1 comments

Well, I didn't manage to stay off my feet on Saturday, but I didn't walk too much. Brian and I cut down 2 bushy, weed-trees in Christina's back yard. Brian did the heavy cutting, I trimmed branches down into carry-able pieces and Christina... Read more
