It started off with a friend's dad passing and then I got a call from another friend, his dad also passed the same day! Which meant one funeral service and one memorial service, both two hours from my home. Toss in organizing and hosting the k... Read more

One day I woke up and discovered my body is fat. My doctor confirmed it, obese category 2 on her weight charts. OK, it didn't just happen over night - but I lived in denial for a long time. I quit looking in mirrors below my neck, hid from cam... Read more

How committed are you Barb? I started the 5% fall challenge. The very first day I was going to be out of town. I vowed with this challenge to put my all into making progress - with my eating, exercise and weight loss. I truly want to see... Read more

I have a big, black, hairy dog. He is a newfoundland/lab/retriever mix that I got at a neighboring county's shelter. I really didn't intend to bring him home. I was just going to "look" and thought I would schedule an appointment with my daug... Read more

the days of our lives. The opening line of the soap opera Days of Our Lives. Not sure what brought that to my mind this morning, but it just popped up in my head. Sometimes things do that. I got out of the shower. Ahhh, the days of ou... Read more

No, I don't like it hot, hot, hot!!! The heat and humidity is contributing to my feeling like a wet rag! Saturday I took refuge at the beach for a few hours. Yesterday it rained and only added to the humidity. It is pretty miserable out. ... Read more

So yesterday (Day 6) was a totally challenging day for me. I overslept. I got to work later than normal. I arrived to some furniture installers who were here to install furniture in an office. The scheduling department called the day before ... Read more

Day 3 - I cleaned out the refrigerator. I haven't tackled the freezer - but everything came out of the refrigerator, I washed it down. The things that went back in? The farm fresh eggs from my daughter's chickens, the butter and spreadable bu... Read more

Yesterday I decided it was time to step up my game here. Midway through the day. Not tomorrow, not later - but right then. I had my granddaughter's 8th grade graduation ceremony at her school. I had just enough time to get home, let the dog ... Read more

About 15 years ago a group of us decided to get our adrenaline rush and jump out of an airplane. It was a static line jump. It sounded like no big deal. It sounded pretty fool proof. Step out of the plane, the chute opens, you land on the gr... Read more

It's a beautiful sunny day here in Michigan! I am hoping to sneak in a short walk on my lunch hour. I am going to a play in a neighboring town tonight so there won't be a walk with the dog on my agenda. Want to get my steps in to check out th... Read more
