AWOL too long

Friday, July 31, 2015      2 comments

It's been way too long since I was in the spark routine, and I have the pounds to prove it. The last few weeks I've been spending most of my time in Birmingham with my son. His wife is on an extended trip and I've been taking care of the k... Read more

Home from Scotland

Monday, May 25, 2015      6 comments

Got back from Scotland last week and it seems I enjoyed the food a little too much: saw a weight gain of 7 pounds. The meals were almost as wonderful as the sights. I was pretty frustrated by the gain since my traveling buddy ate as much as I... Read more

Back to Laptop

Monday, April 06, 2015      6 comments

I've been sparking from my Kindle, and decided it's just not working for me because the options are limited. I think blogging really helps me stay on track, so here goes. (It is also easier to keep up with friends from the laptop) Easter ... Read more

It's been a mess!

Thursday, January 29, 2015      3 comments

Had to edit this one. Typos just drive me crazy! My much-anticipated trip to spend Christmas in Texas with all my children and grandchildren (doesn't happen every year) was spoiled by a bad case of the flu. Oh, I went all right. I had be... Read more

Home from family adventures

Friday, December 05, 2014      3 comments

Just got in last night after a two-week trip. Drove to Houston where my son and daughter and their families live. Then flew to LAX with my 14 year old granddaughter for Thanksgiving. My 21 year old granddaughter picked us up at the airport an... Read more

The pressure is on

Tuesday, September 30, 2014      5 comments

Oops. I normally throw my jeans into the drier for about 5 minutes to get some of the wrinkles out and then hang them up to dry. Today I went outdoors to do a chore and ended up staying out longer than planned. So the only 2 pairs of size 16 ... Read more

Productive day

Thursday, September 25, 2014      7 comments

Yesterday was a pretty good day. I was able to get vehicle titles transferred from hubby's name to mine without tears. It took an hour and a half at the DMV but the ladies were wonderful - even phoning my insurance company because I had forgot... Read more

Making Progress

Wednesday, September 24, 2014      6 comments

Just two days after my last blog Ms. Gene passed away during the night. I was with her, along with her daughter-in-law, and count that as a blessing although it was tough coming so soon after my hubby's death. Watching two loved ones die from ... Read more

New day

Friday, September 12, 2014      4 comments

The last week has been a struggle. My dear friend Gene, who is 87 years old and the most amazing woman I have ever met, has been fighting cancer for about 4 years. She has been in the hospital for the last couple of weeks and has steadily gott... Read more

Difficult times

Wednesday, September 03, 2014      6 comments

It's been over two months since I was active on Sparkpeople, and so much has happened in that time. On August 19 my husband lost his 18 month battle with cancer. He had gotten a clean bill of health at his checkup in May so we were surpris... Read more

Plan B

Tuesday, June 24, 2014      8 comments

Plan A was a failure. I tried to provide high calorie foods for hubby and ended up eating them myself. He has continued to lose and I've gained 10 lbs in 6 months. Had my checkup today and the doctor was appalled. So am I. So, Plan B is... Read more

The challenge

Monday, January 06, 2014      5 comments

Here is what I have to do: I have to prepare meals and entice hubby to eat in order to gain weight. At the same time I have to discourage myself from overeating so that I can lose weight. And I just can't make two separate meals three times a... Read more

50th High School Reunion?

Friday, January 03, 2014      5 comments

Never attended a reunion. Never planned to. But by June I might have changed my mind. At any rate, I plan to look gooood by then. I haven't made an auspicious start to the New Year, but I'm gradually getting back on track. I think I hav... Read more

2014 already?

Wednesday, January 01, 2014      3 comments

Where did 2013 go? I made no progress. In fact, I lost ground. Well, that's over and done. I'm not even going to analyze what went wrong. Just taking steps today to get back on track. I actually started yesterday. When the kids le... Read more
