Nine years sparking...
Nine years, wow. Been up, been down, but still standing. Still sparking. Still exercising, still learning and growing, still loving on God.
Can’t believe it’s been eight years since Moma transitioned. My timeline is flooded with memorie... Read more
Difference a Summer makes...
This was the last picture I took on the morning of the eclipse before I gingerly picked up Habakkuk and put her in the back seat of my care and took her... Read more
Hotter than July
Haven't checked in for a minute. Long, hot, humid summer. Layoffs looming in a couple of months for my plant. More month than money. Just got back from McClary reunion in Washington DC. It was my first reunion attended in years. So glad I ... Read more
I turned double nickels on Wednesday and I am blessed, blessed, blessed. I spent the day with hubby going down to Union Station to view the Pompeii exhibit. I am so grateful that I am getting my health on track, weight is coming down, my poodl... Read more
Wow it has been a while since I wrote...February was quick, fast and warm-thank goodness. No major snow storms or major headaches at work. I am feeling better physically, getting around , more pep in my step as this weight comes off. I am thi... Read more
Thirty two years ago I stepped on those famous yellow footprints at Parris Island and the rest is history. I can easily go down could of, would of, should of lane and lament the fact I would have been retired for about twelve years now, but oh ... Read more
New Year, new vision
I love the start of the new year..the crispness, the freshness, the newness. I was able to dance the new year in with my hubby at my sister's wedding in Michigan and had a blast. I wanted to be different, and rarely does my husband and I get o... Read more

Getting use to my new tool
One week I was in the hospital recovering from surgery. Tomorrow will be my first follow up appointment and I am already looking at about -20 lbs down since I began my pre-op diet on November 28th. The goal right now is for me to get all my li... Read more

Counting down to a new tool
Eight more days and I will have bariatric surgery-the sleeve. I am doing my pre-op prep now. As I write this my stomach is growling but I am motivated to a new way of nourishing my body-eating to live, not living to eat. I didn't bother with ... Read more
Another day to give thanks...everyday in my household is Thanksgiving. I do not need a special holiday to be grateful to move in my right mind, flex my muscles, exercise and use my God given talents and just appreciate life and all those around.... Read more
Veterans Day 2016
Today was a nice day to honor Veterans-including myself for the service to our country. Gotta love the good old USA-we are sometimes like a dysfunctional family, so full of ourselves, forgetting those who fought the fight before us, leaving a c... Read more
So glad this process is going to be over and counting begins in a couple hours. This has been a stressful election year and very eyeopening. It is unfortunate that subtle racism still exists. I have an union negotiated day off and I really do... Read more

Day after Mom's new birthday
Day one of going into eight years of Moma having a new address. I played "A Song for Mama" a lot yesterday, worked and got frustrated with folks and just smiled and sighed when I thought of Moma throughout my "new" normal.
When I settle ... Read more
