I joined three challenges for these first 30 days and today I'm going to find a notebook and start blogging. My BP has shot up through the roof again this week, stress of trying to arrange transportation for Mum to and from school when we are g... Read more

Another year older, weigh goal not reached...it was ALMOST reached at one point but then my old habits kicked it when my stress rises. I am blessed to still have my Mum but the stress of arranging rides so she can still volunteer wears me down.... Read more
Taking Mum shopping

She still thinks she's a size 0 "off the rack" shopper but at almost 90 her body has changed. I can relate, what with fallen knees, flappy arms, and thighs around my ankles. I take her to Chico's where a nice lady has her numbers on file and c... Read more

The new computer doesn't work...my beloved has worked with it since we brought it home Saturday night but we cannot even log on. Will go to the store today and find someone to help us. Frustrating getting older without kids to help us. Too ... Read more
New computer!
Saturday, December 26, 2015      1 comments

So the computer man told us than "when the first big piece goes, it's done." Seems when we had to have the motherboard replaced two months ago we should have just tossed the computer then. Bummer, it was only two years old. We walked in to th... Read more

I'm on beloved's computer since mine quit completely yesterday. It's only 2 years old and got a new motherboard just 3 months ago. Seems we will have to buy a new laptop during the after Christmas sales! Have a wonderful Christmas, everyone!... Read more
Thunder, lightning, and 3 inches of rain last night!

Didn't sleep well because of the NOISE! Thunder crashing, lightning snapping, and the downpour sounded like drums! A fabulous storm but it did keep us awake. We have a too full day topped by a party this evening in North Carolina which we will ... Read more

Our Anniversary is December 21, yesterday, the "shortest day and the longest night " which we didn't learn until years later. It was busy, but just the two of us so still fun. We went out to lunch to try a new restaurant, delicious but heart s... Read more
Stressed beyond measure!

So tired of having to be responsible for Mum. Yesterday we made FOUR trips to the post office trying to pick up two certified letters...a notice had been left in her box the day before but the mail carrier never bothered to come to her door. Th... Read more

It was a looong day at school, the kids are wired because they get out early on Friday for Christmas break. Then I was told that the three children my husband and I SACRIFICE to put in private school will not be returning next semester. Their Mo... Read more
Feeling grumpy at the gym
Monday, December 14, 2015      3 comments

Back at the gym, disappointed at how much I have LOST these two months being sick. My husband is my trainer so I can grumble a bit, but nothing I can do but start back at square one! And the metroprol keeps my heart rate low so I get tired more... Read more
What a lovely warm day!

Beloved and I went to the gym this morning, my first time back since being started on the metroprolol. I couldn't go as far, as fast, or as vigorous as I used to be able to, but it's good to be back exercising. We will start working me up to wh... Read more
Weight is sneaking back on!
Wednesday, December 09, 2015      4 comments

I thought my pants felt snug the last few days so I got on the scale this morning. Up 11 lbs since I left the hospital a month ago! Too much hard eggnog, too many holiday cookies. We have got to plan more meals to be eaten AT HOME instead of w... Read more

We still take dancing lessons two afternoons a week, and now we are brushing up on pistol shooting as well. The weeks get too busy since I'm back volunteering at school in the next city, caring for Mum again, yet the dancing and shooting lesson... Read more
