May is over today and I have yet to get my flowerbed ready to plant. It is maybe 3/4 done but if I don't hurry to get finished, I'll have to start over as weeds coming back on 1st section that I weeded. I am also trying to get my mail sorted t... Read more
Bad day when things break
Sunday, May 27, 2018      2 comments

Today my son was doing laundry and when he pushed the dryer button, lights flashed but it never started. It isn't but a few years old so I'm really at a loss as to what can be wrong. I have unplugged it and maybe if I'm lucky it will reset and... Read more
How do you teach them
Friday, May 25, 2018      3 comments

My oldest son is 18 and he is a really great kid. I'm not sure how to teach him to be more responsible with money. Mom is still here to "help" him out. He lives at home so doesn't really have any expenses. Money goes mostly for food and fun ... Read more

Yesterday my younger son turned 17 and we had a good day. He was happy with what all he got and was in a good mood. I wish we could have more days like that. He has eaten way too much candy and other sweets so I'm surprised he isn't bouncing ... Read more
Knee pain
Tuesday, May 15, 2018      3 comments

I'm fairly lucky as not a lot of pain. Mostly when I stand up and the lower the chair, the harder and more pain I have in my knees. Don't hurt once I'm up or down but just the in between. My 6' 8" older son had a lot of joint pain when he was... Read more

I have been a mother for 9 years now to my 18 year old son and 7 to my 16 year old son. I have had a lot of people say I'm a good mother and the boys are lucky to have me. I wouldn't agree but I guess I'm better than foster care? I know both ... Read more
If at first

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. And so this is the third time for me. I'm doing better as the first time I was up to 320 and the second time I was at 315, now on my third try I'm 295. One of the problems is there is more time b... Read more

I might be considered old at 67 by most but I have most of my teeth, thank you. I'm writing about my dog and what he did today. I got him through a friend of a friend as his owner got sick and wasn't able to take care of him. Don't know much ... Read more
what a surprise
Thursday, March 23, 2017      9 comments

After losing regular since starting with SP, I was having a hard time staying motivated at the end of Feb. and eating within my calorie range. I wasn't going whole hog but I was just half trying a lot more often. I didn't make it to my Spring ... Read more

Thursday, January 26, 2017      5 comments

I wrote in a blog at the beginning of the year that I would try to write a blog at least once a week. it seems I usually have plenty to say but for some reason this is proving to be hard for me. I think because I don't feel that anyone is much... Read more

Doing new things can help keep your mind sharp and if a physical element is included then your body also benefits. Today I chose to go to a Tai Chi class at the senior center near my house. It was a good start and I plan to go at least once a ... Read more
The problem of in-between
Friday, January 13, 2017      0 comments

Losing weight is great and fitting into chairs that use to pinch your hips is a thrill. But there comes the day when your cloths are getting very loose. It was wonderful when they were no longer too tight but now they are hanging and some pant... Read more
