Guess I didn’t keep my promise to stay active on SparkPeople and I am again trying to remember to keep my promise. I know it feels like journaling and I think that helps with coping with the feelings of isolation I have been feeling this year. ... Read more

I’ve been self-quarantined for almost five weeks and am grateful I am healthy. After three weeks of working in a nursing home (!) as a part time activity assistant, playing piano and leading activities, loving the job, the Coronavirus came alon... Read more

Have been retired 4 years now and it’s hard to find a part time job. I need to work so I can make my budget work. I haven’t even had an interview yet but I keep looking cause ‘God helps those who help themselves.” Going to the gym 3 to 4 times... Read more
Did a really good job playing piano at NH on Christmas Day.

I’m pretty sure I had help from my favorite aunt who was a musical genius. I have her picture over my piano just like when I was growing up, feeling like she was listening to me play. Everyone at the NH was friendly and most of the residen... Read more

After I bought a new copy of White Christmas (I couldn’t find my copy I’ve had forever) I walked to the bus stop and the bus didn’t stop for me. I’m pretty sure the driver saw me but I was only 5 feet from the bus stop. So there I was on... Read more
I ended up seriously breaking my glasses. I’m pretty sure they’re not repairable.

Almost broke them a month ago, but this time I’m sure I’ll have to get new ones. Getting new insurance in January so will get by with some old ones for 2 to 3 weeks.... Read more

This morning I’m going shopping where I can buy a case of 9 young coconuts for $18.00. I love those things. Great for hydrating. It is an Asian store where I will spend about 2 hours shopping. After that I have another appointment rega... Read more

I shouldn’t go to bed hungry as last time I did that I had to eat in middle of the night. At least I have been sleeping 7 to 8 hours per night for the past week and am doing pretty well, all things considered. Tomorrow I am going to ... Read more

I probably accidentally left the page before pressing post blog entry button. I’m sure I had great insights but for now will just do a little free association. My asthma is so much better. Sleeping well with all the Rxs doc prescrib... Read more

Today is 8th day not using walker.
Monday, September 02, 2019 3 comments
I was afraid to quit using walker cause I sometimes feel out of balance and so afraid of falling. I have started using a cane which gives me a little more self confidence. We’ll see what happens as winter sets in with slippery and snowy sidewa... Read more
Quit using walker yesterday and, of course, got “carried away.”

Not actually carried away, just overdid. I walked 4 miles yesterday. Today I walked only 1/2 mile but did swim for 45 minutes. I think 2 miles a day would be a more reasonable goal with gradual increasing instead of pushing myself that ... Read more
