My husband is officially diabetic :(

Saturday, August 01, 2015      6 comments

Two years ago he was dx'd as pre-diabetic. He eats pretty well. He's not into a lot of carbs or sugar, with the exception to sugar in his coffee. He started to exercise and cut back on the sugar in his coffee and last year the numbers were mu... Read more

Death mentioned (rambling)

Thursday, July 30, 2015      4 comments

My work situation isn't the greatest, but it could be a whole lot worse. My immediate supervisor is clueless (I think he's getting better though) but the boss we both report to is really good. My former immediate supervisor was/is almost... Read more

Couple of things not especially note worthy

Tuesday, July 28, 2015      2 comments

1) I love my new plan for the most part. It's really taking care of the family stuff that throws it off. Laundry, supper, doing things for my parents while they're visiting my sister (feeding the beasts, cleaning the pool), take precious time ... Read more

Week 2 of the new plan

Monday, July 20, 2015      3 comments

I'm doing a fantastic job with the physical part of my new plan. I haven't missed any cardio or strength training yet. The mental aspects, the reading, writing, online course, and just keeping sane, well that has been tougher. I've still ... Read more

The new plan (which is still a work in progress)

Wednesday, July 15, 2015      3 comments

I have a lot of stuff I want or need to do. It's a matter of fitting it all in. I don't like the excuse/reason of "I don't have time" because if something is important enough to you, you find the time. Besides, sleep is overrated. (kidding - ... Read more

Vacation 2015 in pictures

Tuesday, July 14, 2015      5 comments

All in all, it was a nice vacation. My niece (she'll be 14 next month) joined us for a few days. It was nice having her there. The kid got to have someone (not a parent) to interact with. I think it was good for my niece as well. she's at t... Read more

Something's gotta give

Tuesday, May 19, 2015      8 comments

I set rather high standards for myself and I tend to be very unforgiving if I don't achieve them. I think I'm ready to admit that I may just have too much on my plate and that means deciding to either let something go or maybe lower my expectat... Read more

A short blog about books

Wednesday, May 13, 2015      7 comments

My husband thinks I am addicted to books. I'm not. I could stop collecting and reading them at any time (perhaps not until after my vision and ability to hear was taken away and maybe not even then). I have 8 books in progress at the momen... Read more

Rainbow Narwhals - a tribe of many colors

Friday, May 08, 2015      2 comments

My 9 year old has this thing for "Rainbow Narwhals". I don't have any idea where the concept came from. He thinks it might be his own. He thinks it was a response to unicorns and rainbows. He likes narwhals and why shouldn't they have rainbo... Read more

Why I haven't been blogging much (all excuses)

Tuesday, May 05, 2015      2 comments

To say I’ve been lax with blogging would be a tiny bit of an understatement. I’ve had a few things going that have impacted setting time aside to write much about what is going on in my life. Truth be told, when things are going spectacula... Read more

A different sort of challenge for me

Tuesday, March 31, 2015      4 comments

There was an article about self talk and how when we start life style change, we're all gung-ho, but after a while, we start talking to ourselves, putting us down because we slip or lose our enthusiasm. My situation is a bit different. I'v... Read more

Not much of a blog

Thursday, March 26, 2015      3 comments

I took a photos of myself today. The swelling is almost completely gone now so this is pretty accurate to the "end result" the surgeon was expecting. I guess it takes some people as long as a year, so I was ahead of the curve. He said I still... Read more

A couple of things occured to me today

Monday, March 23, 2015      6 comments

Three. Three things occurred to me today. 1) I survived my first day back at the gym. Not quite at the level I left at, but I'll get there. I'd thought about adding 2 more days a week to the gym. I might eventually, but not this week. ... Read more

What's that word I'm looking for? Insane?

Sunday, March 22, 2015      7 comments

I know I'm starting to feel better now. I can tell because I'm restless. My mother has episodes of restlessness. They were more intense when she was younger. It's physical for her. She has to escape. She would drive to Provincetown (the ve... Read more

Getting back into a routine while procrastinating

Wednesday, March 18, 2015      4 comments

As of yesterday, I was cleared to start working out again. I've decided to hold off until next week to do so however. My old routine, the one I want to get back, I went to the gym before work on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I don't like sta... Read more
