I've been taking a blogging class over on and am just now getting our Christmas letter send out. If you usually get one from in the mail, you probably won't. I'm trying to go paperless this year. It's been a real "bear" to get this... Read more

This is NOT what I intended to blog about when I got on the laptop this afternoon. It was going to be “Mirrors! Why did it have to be mirrors?” But then an hour of unscheduled time magically appeared in my morning after visiting a friend at the ... Read more

Just plain tired tonight...

BUT! I had a good day. I was under on calories and carbs for breakfast and lunch again, but likely a bit over at supper since we had BREAKFAST, including potatoes and pancakes. Nothing too bad, however. I’m dragging arse something awful ton... Read more

It actually went very well. Breakfast and lunch were spot on. Still a little under on the carbs and calories, but my sugar was in the right range. That felt good. Was trying to decide what to make for dinner when Bran called from work with a “cl... Read more

So today actually went pretty well. Wasn't filling up on junk food (which, of course, is now all gone) and I felt far more energetic. Have done five loads of laundry. Been up and down those stairs 15 times today at least. So I got some exercise ... Read more

Well, the zone wasn’t QUITE as sucky today…

Saturday, January 03, 2015      2 comments

I managed to get through all day with only one snack (tangerine) until we sat down to watch TV after supper. I should have known I couldn’t have sweets in the house while riding the couch in front of the TV. I gave some things away today, but th... Read more

Friday, January 02, 2015      3 comments

The last six weeks have been soul-draining for me. Suffice it to say I could have missed Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day and been WAY better off. Now here I am at January 2nd and I KNOW I can’t keep to this path I’m on. So many things in my ... Read more

I'm scrambling to come up with something to even put in our Christmas Chronicle this year. I've waited to do it because Stef and the baby were coming for Christmas. It was a difficult visit. But at least we got to know Caleb better. He turned on... Read more
