I've been busy, busy, busy lately. I can't help but play with Helena as much as I can. But...I could've drank more water. I could have gotten more steps in. As in many cases in my life, I got on the scale to find that I have gained weight. ... Read more
Some Things I Don't Want to Know
I don't want to see my activity tracker report tomorrow. Most days this week, I know I got close to getting in my 10,000 steps...but no cigar. And I was getting to the point where I would hit at least 12,000 a couple days.
With my daughte... Read more
WOAH! A Lost Day!
It's been a busy, stressful week. Thank goodness that I have my sunshine with me. Helena was in her Momma's arms yesterday and actually reached out to me for me to hold her. That in itself is such a great present! Sherry said that Helena had... Read more
A Special Lady is no Longer With Us
My first mother-in-law, Helen Ridlon, is my girls' grandma and one of the two Helens that my Helena was named for. (The other is my Mom.) She's been in declining health for about 4 years. The last two weeks showed a rapid decline in her health... Read more
Last Week in Review December 9, 2014
Such a busy, busy week last week! It was so busy that I confused some times and didn't help others as I should have, but I made it through.
My Sarah came in Friday night. She went right to the hospital to see her paternal grandma who is... Read more
Balance in Life
As I read a few blogs this morning, I realized quickly that there was a common basic theme. Many people are a bit frazzled right now, including me. I went on to look up my day's motivational quote and came up with this:
Problems arise in... Read more
I know there's a saying about life getting in the way. It has just reminded me that I have to go with the flow and take it as it comes.
This Saturday is my church's English Tea Fundraiser. Today and tomorrow we'll be getting the hall and ... Read more
Week in Review: 12/2/14
Looking at my tracker numbers, it appears I am still pretty much at a standstill.
steps: 83732/82,952 :) minutes: 956/973 :(

At my last appointment, my doctor told me that winter is generally not a good time to change up certain medicines. I didn't listen; I thought I would try lowering my dosage of Zoloft.
At the end of the year and at birthdays, most people ... Read more
Knew it was Coming
Sometimes I know things will happen soon. But, with this one, I still wasn't ready! I was so hoping Helena would take a little more time even though I knew before she was born that she is intelligent.
the Week in Review November 24, 2014
I've got a lot of projects going on right now. It's a good thing I got used to multi-tasking years ago. This is probably saving me right now. I sort of volunteered myself to have Thanksgiving dinner here. It's been pretty good motivation, ho... Read more
Week Review of Nov. 9-16
It was a strange week. I sort of felt better, but I still was wiped out at the end of the day.
Steps: 83664/80952 :) Minutes: 911/967 :(
calories: 3391/3559 :( Miles: 17.66/15/77 :)
I'm not sure how my steps and miles... Read more
In two weeks, it will be Thanksgiving. I used to be so much more organized. I'd have my cards written. The presents that I had already bought were wrapped and ready. It's not like that this year. Granted, it's been a long, busy year, but I ... Read more
Week in Review 11/10/2014

Everything else was down a little: Minutes: 967/1031, calories: 3559/3974, miles, 15.7... Read more
Might Be a Long Winter
I'm still down with this whatever I have. I think I'm a little better, but this drainage and lack of energy are driving me crazy. At least I can say that I have tackled a couple piles of paperwork.
Guess it's time to go back to the docto... Read more
