Back from camping, back to life, back to basics
Just got back from camping at Hither Hills State Park on the southern fork of Long Island. Montauk Point is just 6 miles away. It was a great trip. Very cold and windy on Sunday and Monday, but Tues thru Thurs, the weather got better and bet... Read more
An old man named Larry needed some help today, and being in the field of his need, my father and I came to his aid, even though our office was closed. He left a message there, but he also called my house number to get some help. We've known th... Read more

I AM NOT OVERDOING IT! I swear to all that is holy!
This stupid cold will not go away. Yesterday the cough came back and the sore throat - holy crumoly! I'm exhausted! I did 2 half miles and 2 days of light strength - but not enough to con... Read more
Went shopping, but did not buy (long rant)
This afternoon I went shopping at Kohl's with my middle sister to get tops and some pants. We both really did not want to go, but we had to anyway. She is in desperate need of tops - non-knit tops that do not cling, and pants. She was a size ... Read more
Thank you for caring
My cold is almost over! I can feel it!
No sore throat, cough is almost completely gone, some slight sniffles but no major nose cloggage. The best is that my chest congestion is gone and I can breathe deeply again! One more day of TLC and ... Read more
Half way to my goal weight
Today is a great day. I weigh 168. My halfway mark was 168.5 and I punched through!
I'm a little bit in shock. My brain's body image is still in, what I like to call, "fat mode" - but the mirror and clothes say different. It makes me ha... Read more
Phlegm is so, so good!
What I say is true. First thing this morning after my blissful night's sleep last night (thank you Nyquil) was the greeting of the phlegm!
I know - that is SO gross to write about, but the awful truth is that it's a sign! My cold is on it... Read more
The cold that won't die.
Gotta love family gatherings. Easter. The whole in-law family got the sniffles/ear infections/upper respiratory infections. A few individuals from each family in complete and utter misery.

Tough getting back into this
So Easter is over...and overall, not too bad on the choices I made, but I did indulge myself on having some chocolate and jelly beans, and 1 piece of dessert. That is my DOWNFALL - sweets. Those evil little things that call to me from the coun... Read more
Why is it...
Why is it that when you want to have a good workout, it turns to crap and your legs are like lead?
Why is it that jumping jacks MADE my legs into chunks of lead?
Why is it that the jumping jacks were 4 days ago and the backs of my legs... Read more
Bras - confession time people!
Yup - I went there! A few years ago, I went there with the staff at the day care I use and the next day, the whole bunch of them were wearing new bras!
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU BOUGHT A NEW BRA????
It's not a rhetorical question. I... Read more
