I'm seriously going to bed early tonight. I keep saying that and not doing it and I am completely exhausted. I feel it in my physical being and in my mental being. So, writing this, touching base with you all...and going to bed! ... Read more

So, I found out my poor car...which has 8 cylinders...was running on 4. It can be fixed but for more than it's worth. So, I guess we will probably scrap it and I'll get something else. I looked at one tonight that I really liked...but it requ... Read more

It's been a stressful day for me. I'm having a hard time dealing with the uncertainty of my car situation. Funny how you don't appreciate something until you don't have it or it is in jeopardy. When we had a bad storm a while back, our electr... Read more

It was a good, active day. I started it out by getting up and getting ready and heading out for my donation appointment. Then, ugh, car trouble. My car was not happy when we headed out and it got worse as I drove on. So, I decided to call DH... Read more

I'm a little tired tonight. I'm STILL catching up on my sleep from last weekend. Maybe tonight I will get to bed early. I can tell I am used to getting 7-8 hours of sleep each night...and when I don't, I can really feel it. ... Read more

I feel like I am winning the weight loss battle of the mind. I am really watching what I am thinking. Am I allowing myself to get down by thinking negative thoughts? Am I staying in the present? Am I moving myself forward, down the scale, wi... Read more

I think today I really "got" the concept of staying in the present. I've noticed that everytime I get down about something or worry about something, it's not about what is happening now...it's what is to come or what has passed. Right now, I a... Read more

I was back on track today. I think it WAS a good idea to track my eating when I went off track. I'm a numbers person. And seeing what my calories added up to...over 3000 calories...yikes...was a nice wake-up call and deterrent for today. Tod... Read more

No grand-daughter yet...maybe tonight...maybe tomorrow! I talked to my son today...he's in Colorado...I'm in Ohio...wish we weren't so far apart so I could "help." I probably wouldn't be that much help...maybe help with the dog while he's at t... Read more
