I was at an event recently where there were no electronic devices allowed. It was a really odd feeling, not being able to photograph the special event that was going on. It was also kind of cool, because instead of people focusing on whether t... Read more

It's been a long time since I posted, but I haven't forgotten the basics of my life journey. The winter weather, recovery from surgery and just feeling blah have me choosing not to take long walks outside. I'm looking forward to getting back t... Read more

Today was my followup appointment with the oncologist, and luckily they think they got everything when they did the surgery. I have to do follow up appointments every few months for the next two years. They said that even one tiny cancer cell ... Read more

my surgery went well on Wednesday and I came home in Thursday, which was a big mistake. I really just wanted to come home so I ignored the signs that I wasn't ready. I paid dearly on Thursday as I was really nauseous and nothing helped once I go... Read more

Three weeks ago I got a phone call from the doctor, that a test came back questionable. Had another test last week and this one came back positive. To hear your doctor say the word cancer is very frightening. Today i was having a pity party, ... Read more

Another rainy day. I don't like rainy fall days. I don't mind the rain in the spring and summer, but in the fall, there are so few days left before the snow falls that I get a bit upset with rainy days. Not sure that makes any sense, but that... Read more

Very exciting day around here getting ready for our kitchen remodel to start tomorrow morning. The kitchen is cleaned out and ready, but I'm not sure I'm ready! I don't really like change, and this is going to be a big change for me. We have ... Read more

Yesterday was a tough day for me. It was the 1st Anniversary of my Mom's death. I'm not sure what I expected, but it was weird. DGD and I went to the library for story time, then met DD for lunch, visited with my Dad for a few minutes, and th... Read more

I just got back from a fabulous walk with a friend from my old job. Listening to her talk about work confirms that the decision I made a year ago 9/13/13 to retire was the right one. I can't believe it's been almost a year. This past year... Read more

The topic of the week at our Weight Watchers meeting is being kind to ourselves. Are we kind or are we really hard on ourselves? I'm working on this one. Instead of being mad at myself for eating something or eating too much of something, I n... Read more

Ok it's confession time. I have not felt like exercising for the past couple of weeks, and finally succumbed to the draw of being a slug. Thank goodness my fitbit buddy nudged me to find out if I was ok. This made me realize how much my onlin... Read more

Another successful weigh in at Weight Watchers is in the book. I'm slightly below my goal weight, so I will enjoy free meetings and e-tools again this month. I enjoy the new meeting I have found, and can really relate to the people in the meet... Read more

I'm horrified by a picture of me that was posted on Facebook yesterday. The video, taken in 1999, shows me at my highest weight. The video was a Champions of Industry video hosted by Pat Summerall and it boasted the company I was working for. ... Read more
