Sick pup
Wednesday, January 18, 2017      14 comments

I was up most of last night with Cooper as he was sick. Poor pup. There are days I wish he could talk to me and tell me what is wrong. He slept most of the day today. I did get him out for a half hour walk this evening, so I think he is on t... Read more
Rainy but warmer
Tuesday, January 17, 2017      11 comments

It poured for most of the day, but it was almost warm enough not to need my Winter coat. Cooper was singularly uninterested in going outside today. He looked at me like I was crazy each time I dragged him out in the wet. My mom said he was ha... Read more
Car stuff... brain stuff... dog stuff... food stuff

Well, the mechanic made it so the car is driveable for now, but it needs a part replaced. The part will be in on Friday, so I will once again drop it off at the garage in the morning on Friday. My brother, Jonathan, is picking up the cost of t... Read more
Walking the dog
Sunday, January 15, 2017      13 comments

I managed to take the dog for an hour long walk, go grocery shopping, and do my laundry all by 11 am today. And I forgot to set my alarm last night, so I woke up a half hour later than usual. Cooper was willing to walk today so I took him out... Read more
Experimenting with greens
Saturday, January 14, 2017      11 comments

Today was my day to cook lunch for mom and dad at their house. Mom sent me a link on Facebook a couple of days ago on a different way to prepare fresh greens. And dad's Winter garden has swiss chard, so today we thought we would give it a try.... Read more
At the gym
Friday, January 13, 2017      9 comments

I had to talk myself into going to the gym today. From the moment I woke up it was a series of conversations with myself and decisions made that subsequently led to me getting my tuchis to the gym. I ended up doing 10.76 miles in 107 minutes o... Read more
Foggy day... power trips
Thursday, January 12, 2017      11 comments

The fog was incredible today. It cleared by about 3pm, but in the middle of the day it was pea soup! I am glad I didn't need to drive anywhere today. It rained for a while as well. I tried to walk Cooper around 1:15pm, while it was raining, ... Read more
Resisting technology or embracing it?
Wednesday, January 11, 2017      14 comments

My migraine lingered this morning, so I decided it would be wise to not go to the gym and deal with the loud music and the almost certain overexertion I would put myself through... instead I walked the dog, and pedaled and read. I got a box of ... Read more
Medical Update... SPAT news... Migraine weather
Tuesday, January 10, 2017      17 comments

Had my appointment with the neuropathy specialist this afternoon. She said I am kind of a puzzling case, since there was no precipitating event or cause. She said I may just be genetically predisposed to this... and now we wait to see if it ha... Read more
Plans change
Monday, January 09, 2017      13 comments

So, my friend texted me and said, could she come a little later in the morning today. I said sure. Then she called and asked if she could come Wednesday instead. Sigh. Sure. She helps me a lot, so I will practice patience and be flexible. ... Read more
Eating lunch out
Sunday, January 08, 2017      11 comments

I had lunch out at my favorite restaurant with my brother, Jonathan, and his family. Everyone was on time... for a change. Very refreshing not to have to sit and wait around for people. In fact we all arrived within seconds of each other. I ... Read more
Driving very slowly
Saturday, January 07, 2017      12 comments

Yep, I am one of those people... when the roads are icy and haven't really been plowed yet I drive below the speed limit and ease up to and through intersections. I drove to my parents' house at about 20mph this morning. Any faster and I could... Read more
Gym day... and yet more snow
Friday, January 06, 2017      11 comments

I went out to mom and dad's this morning for coffee. I left a little later than usual, and had to take the time to clear the snow off the car, and scrape the ice off the windshield, so I was later getting to their house than normal... but that ... Read more
Lake Effect Snow
Wednesday, January 04, 2017      13 comments

I live near the eastern shore of Lake Erie, and we get what is called Lake Effect Snow. In effect the storm system moves across the lake, picking up moisture... and then dumps it all on us. We had whiteout conditions on and off throughout the ... Read more
Getting stuff done
Tuesday, January 03, 2017      12 comments

Got going early enough to go have coffee with mom and dad this morning. Cooper and I were driving down their road and were about to pass dad on his morning walk (toward the end of it), when he signaled for me to stop. So I pulled up to him. H... Read more
