I just read about Koko
Saturday, June 23, 2018      3 comments

Koko died this week at 46. I'm sad. It is a great loss. I always enjoyed hearing about her and the Gorilla Foundation where she lived. She had a pet cat. She understood over 2000 word and could sign 1000. She also watched TV and painted. ... Read more
i'm worth it and so are my boys
Thursday, June 21, 2018      4 comments

I read in someone's blog about buying fruit and/or veggie trays at the store (wish I could remember who wrote that) and how they really don't cost all that much more than a bunch of junk food or a meal out. I started buying some (but only ones ... Read more

I use to weigh on Friday but then go off healthy eating for the weekend if I lost weight. it was working for me but I think it also made it easier for me when I stopped losing and logging on here to go back to bad eating habits. I was planning... Read more

some days I can't seem to get enough water and feel thirsty even after taking several big drinks. other days like today, I have to remind myself to drink my water as i'm just not very thirsty. I wonder why it has to be all or none but I never ... Read more
losing track of time
Saturday, June 09, 2018      3 comments

It is hard to keep track of the days and the hours when you have no plans or appointments. I just looked at the clock as was thinking it was late and it is only mid-afternoon. I need to start going out for a couple of hours maybe to the senior... Read more
What you going to do with a dog bully?
Friday, June 08, 2018      1 comments

Our overweight mini-dachshund, Pebbles, is a bully. He pushes our thin dachshund/chihuahua mix, Micky, out of his way at the food bowl or when he goes after a treat. This is most likely why he is overweight while his brother is so thin. I try... Read more
Just noticed SparkPoints question
Saturday, June 02, 2018      1 comments

Yesterday I was looking at my rank in one of the teams. It showed a few more points than what I thought I had. I checked on my SparkPoints page. Yesterday was the 1st so I would think that the number of points showed at top would match the nu... Read more

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
good days happen
Saturday, May 19, 2018      1 comments

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
Mother's Day
Sunday, May 13, 2018      2 comments

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
Saturday, May 12, 2018      5 comments

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
