Day After Tomorrow
Thursday, April 16, 2015      3 comments

The wedding is Saturday. I'm surprised at how well the planning went. I'm excited, and just hoping I eat right enough & sleep enough so I can really enjoy the day. We are washing & packing our clothes for the honeymoon tonight, even though ... Read more
Wedding Plans
Tuesday, March 10, 2015      1 comments

So this post is quite a bit overdue. :-) Wedding plans are coming along better than I was expecting. Because we are looking to hire local companies for the items and services we need, we've been fortunate that some of the merchants have b... Read more
Doing ok despite winter
Saturday, January 24, 2015      2 comments

I'm doing ok. After the last blog, we both managed to lose a few more. I was sick over the holidays & thankful for a lack of appetite. I'm finally back to the mid-180's, so clothes fit better. The snowy part of winter has just begun. St... Read more
Shrinking pants (rant)
Thursday, September 25, 2014      2 comments

(rant) I hate having pants that are too small. So last weekend, I went to Pennington's & bought 3 pairs of pants & a pair of sleeper pants, all regular price. I washed them all shortly after I got home. Today, I'm wearing the first p... Read more
I'm not as OK as I thought I was
Tuesday, September 23, 2014      5 comments

In a couple weeks, it will be 2 years that My Guy passed away. It's not like I thought I would be fully recovered from such a sudden change in my life, but I figured I'd be well on my way. In some parts of my life, it's starting to come ar... Read more
Day 5 - Post-Arthur and still no power
Wednesday, July 09, 2014      1 comments

I'm on a bit of a rant today. And it's not directed at the linesmen/women and tree cutting crews, but rather the upper crust of the corporation. It's Day 5 since I've had no power. No one other than an assessor has been on our main road, ... Read more

For those of you wondering, My Gal & I are ok, as are house, garage & both vehicles. So far. The storm started in the early hours of Saturday morning, while we were still on vacation in PEI. We opted to end our vacation early, so we could... Read more
Sky -- 1998-2014
Thursday, May 29, 2014      6 comments

This morning, Sky crossed the Rainbow Bridge. For the last 3 weeks or so, she hadn’t been eating very much, and it was difficult to coax her into eating even her favourite foods. At first, I thought it was her regular Spring Fasting, something... Read more
So much for chocolate
Wednesday, April 23, 2014      3 comments

I've been struggling for quite some time since My Guy passed with getting my eating patterns under control again, and using the self-discipline I've taught myself over the years. I know it's emotional eating, and this isn't new; I've been an em... Read more
The Snow Rake
Monday, January 06, 2014      5 comments

The more I stay in our house, the more I discover things that need to be done, that can be done, and that there's an easier way to do it than My Guy used to do. Enter The Snow Rake. Last week, I bought a snow rake. I knew it wouldn't ... Read more

The First Anniversary of Being Without My Guy
Saturday, October 12, 2013      7 comments

So much has happened in the last 12 months. One thing that really stood out is that I found out who my friends were. And who was really My Guy's friends. Today was ok, overall. I spent the day home yesterday, and it was much harder than ... Read more
Sucking Wind
Monday, September 23, 2013      5 comments

Since August, it feels like my eating plan has been on vacation. Sure, I put on 5lbs during the month, but I was ok with that, because I was working on melting it off in September. Then 2 weekends ago, just as I was gearing up to lose those 5l... Read more
A New 'Do
Wednesday, September 18, 2013      6 comments

It's been several years since I've wanted to get a short hair style, but every time I've wanted to go, I didn't know what to tell the stylist. And I certainly didn't want to leave it to chance. Last Saturday, My Gal & I finally went to get... Read more
Gone Muddin' (or "One Day Closer to Healing")
Sunday, June 16, 2013      7 comments

I've talked about mudding just past our driveway, that it was so much fun, rippin' thru the big puddles and screaming my head off. And that I wouldn't be doing it anytime soon because I wouldn't drive the truck through that kind of water. ... Read more
