So last year I resolved to eat more fruits and vegetables and find new and different ways to exercise. I did pretty well - I almost always eat between 5 to 7 fruits and veggies a day now (though I tend to eat more fruits than veggies - it's tha... Read more
Little toe update
Sunday, November 22, 2009      3 comments

I got x-rays of my little toe last week and so far so good. The toe is now nice and straight - just like it should be. I am still wearing the surgical boot (which looks more like an overgrown sandal than a boot) until Friday when finally I can... Read more

Friday I am having surgery on my little toe. Usually when I am asked about "5 things about yourself" sort of thing I mention that only four of my toes touch the ground. The little toe on each foot is crooked and rests on top of the toe next t... Read more

Woke up this morning - Monday morning - which is never my favorite morning - to find out my hard drive crashed (I am typing this at work - very very quickly - during my break). What a happy-day-before-my-birthday present! So, until/if/when I ... Read more

Especially when the sun comes out which - for us, here - has been a rare and beautiful sight. Rain, rain, rain, rain, rain - oh my heavens - is that actually a blue sky? It is such a pretty day I just had to walk to the store - despite the fac... Read more

I miss fried foods! I grew up surrounded by fried foods - chicken, catfish, hushpuppies, corn dogs, heck even corn - and I like fried corn! Not only did I grow up with them, but I raised my children on them also. Most of the time now, I am h... Read more

Too bad my neighborhood is currently my office at work! I am going for a long walk after work to enjoy this weather, because all weekend all the forecasters are saying is rain, rain, rain - it can't do all the raining while I am at work? ... Read more
