It's only been 12 days since my aunt's surgery and my power of attorney for health care was activated. 12 days since my world was rocked and I became responsible for my widowed aunt. She's in a nursing home right now and we're looking for a pl... Read more
Hills, Curves, Twists and Turns
Tuesday, September 17, 2019      8 comments

I knew going back to work was going to add stress, alarms, time constraints, tiredness to my journey (up hill). Add in a head cold (curve) and it's even harder. What's the saying? "When the going gets tough, the tough get going!" I work ... Read more

Smile a Little Smile
Thursday, August 08, 2019      6 comments

This blog is about the little things that make me smile! When I measure my Kashi cereal into the recommended 2/3 cup serving size, there are no little bits left at the bottom of the box. You know that small amount that isn't a serving, but... Read more
Skipped a Day
Wednesday, August 07, 2019      6 comments

Skipped a day... not a few! I didn't feel like exercising yesterday so I took a day of rest. Just one day though. I scrubbed my kitchen floor today which was a good workout. Then I did a 15 minute walk to ABBA and tried Tai Chi. Even t... Read more
A Piece of Cake
Monday, August 05, 2019      12 comments

A Smaller Piece of Cake for a Smaller Shape! I purchased our favorite 7-Up Cake. I read the label to get the nutrition information and serving size. 1/9 of the bundt cake = 310 calories. So, I very carefully measured a 1/9 size piece of ... Read more

Very Next Meal
Saturday, July 27, 2019      11 comments

Again, the great Spark advice came in handy. I went out to Pizza Hut with my sister and nephew for lunch. I thought that I could handle sharing a pizza and getting a salad. I didn't handle it as well as I hoped. Large Pepperoni Lovers (e... Read more
