Friday, October 26, 2007      3 comments

For years, my motto has been, “NEVER DO TODAY WHAT YOU CAN PUT OF INDEFINATELY" Diet? I promised myself "I'll start that Monday" but not which Monday. Then, because the dreaded word "Diet" was in my head, I ate anything that doesn't bite ... Read more
Raking leaves
Monday, October 22, 2007      0 comments

I had to laugh at myself today! Each year, I snivel, moan and groan before I go out and start raking the leaves and picking up all the debris after the first hard freeze. Today is bright and sunny and almost 60 degrees outside. When I loo... Read more

Wednesday, September 26, 2007      6 comments

During my youth, my waist was always at least 10 inches smaller than the hips and bust. Mother always assured me that was the "Perfect Figure" , I always felt sefl-consious. If I tucked a blouse into a straight skirt, I thought it made my hip... Read more

A little background. I have Macular Degeneration, but my Optometrist has always been able to correct my vision with new lenses. About three weeks ago, I went in for a routine checkup and he sent me to Salt Lake City, Utah to a Retina Specialis... Read more
Observations at a Burger King
Friday, September 07, 2007      1 comments

My husband and I found out many years ago that we would be wise to stop and eat half way to Salt Lake City when visiting our oldest daughter. We always eat a light breakfast and she always serves a late dinner. By the time we would reach her h... Read more
Starting a Walking Challenge - hope it cures my paranoia!
Friday, August 31, 2007      3 comments

No - I'm not normally paranoid - just have a small fear of walking. This started five years ago when I was walking everywhere! Our gift store was just 1/2 mile from the house and it seemed silly to take my truck and take a parking place a cust... Read more

My WID is Wednesday and I was out of town. Considered plugging everything in Tuesday night, but had too much to do getting ready to be gone. I don't handle stress well and have just been released from therapy for a broken arm - still don't have... Read more

Cast is off, but still having trouble with the left hand. I go in tomorrow to see the neurologist to determine if there is nerve damage. I'm getting plenty of walking in - even around the house it's more than normal! Where I was carryin... Read more
Reached Goal!
Thursday, August 02, 2007      2 comments

I reached my goal on Wednesday in spite of very little exercise for the past 3 1/2 weeks. Did I do it because I have no use of my left arm, hand, fingers? Is this one of those embarrassing moments where I confess I am a two-handed eater?... Read more

We all need to read this one over and over until it becomes part of who we are! HOW TO STAY YOUNG 1. Try everything twice. On Madams tombstone (of Whelan's and Madam) she said she wanted this epitaph: Tried everything twice...loved i... Read more
