    The cough is abating, though not fast enough (of course). This morning the RN brought my medicine, and she was coughing and sniffling. I said, "Shoo! I don't need another cold!". I've almost finished my white shawl, and a baby blue one will be next. One of the black ones I'm going to do has the... Read more

    I have approximately eight weeks to lose as many kilos as possible. A fancy dress party coming up that I would like to look okay at. Ten kilos would be great, but if I aim for five and see what I can do. It's up to me, and five kilos should definitely be manageable. Time will tell 192 9 193 9 1... Read more

    I thank God for my friends here on Sparks who keep me going. Even when I want to give up because of health problems. Now I have been diagnosed with a hiatal hernia. I can no longer drink strong coffee because it gives me severe heart burn. I have been struggling with it for days now. The pills I am ... Read more

    9/12/2016 2:19:54 PM, by AUTIEJ

    Hi, all. I am feeling rather unwitty today, but I wanted to stop in and offer a short blog because it's going to be much too busy of a week. I am busily tackling an in-box that is beginning to feel like the Leaning Tower of To-Do's, and preparations are underway for a mom-and-kiddo day Friday to ... Read more

    This miserable cough has kept me awake the last couple of nights. They're giving me Robitussin for it but it isn't doing a lot. The other day the morning RN told me her husband is buying a pedigreed bulldog puppy from a breeder in Kansas (eve though we're in California). She also told me she's ... Read more

    Today is a sobering day for many people in the U.S. and even around the world. Why/ I likely don't have to tell you why.

    I do believe maybe my last blog was a bit misconstrued, which is nothing new, because I'm a bit of a rambler who doesn't always get my clear point across. Even my dogs get annoyed by my very roundabout way of making a point, and I often find them looking at me like, "Uh, yeah, that's nice, but I don... Read more
