Okay, that title makes absolutely no sense, but I just watched the funniest kitten video with the 2 cats bouncing along to that song... which I had never heard of, but I just downloaded it b/c it will be great to walk to. So here is my happ... Read more

Well, I'm not quite sure where my motivation has gone, but I'm having a hard time reeling it back in. The past few weeks have been "off" for me. I've had some real good days and some real bad ones too. I think after plateauing for so long I ... Read more

It's been a beautiful weekend. We finally ended it with an amazing burger dinner that Ed cooked on the grill. He found a recipe which uses a glaze that he made... cooks for an hour and smelled heavenly.... anyway, it was near 80 today so the w... Read more

What a weird day. As I was leaving work I was pelted with rain while a ferocious thunder & lightning storm roared around me. A few minutes down the road the rain stopped and the skies cleared. Ten minutes later as I'm getting near to my turno... Read more
Getting my groove on while planting a garden

So yesterday I finally got my garden planted... Ed built it for me, complete with fence to keep my deer out... We put lattice on the side so when you come in the driveway that's what you see (with the new bushes as well). Also bought a red mapl... Read more

Weather apps annoy me & I annoy myself by trusting in them :) Today it was supposed to rain all day. At the end of my walk I got sprinkled on for about 5 minutes and now the sun is shining again. We rented a post hole digger & my husban... Read more
Not shaking any more :)

Okay, that was short lived. As the shakes seemed to jump start my weight loss, as the days continued it also jump started some serious over eating! I found that I craved chewing. Is that normal?! I would do great all day with my morning and ... Read more

No, I'm not dancing right now... though I always do enjoy breaking into a dance (don't ask my kids about it though... where I think I look cool they're always quick to tell me how goofy I really look. Ah well). My friend Sam is doing Isage... Read more
Bah humbug... arthritis in the knee
Monday, April 14, 2014      12 comments

Doctor visit today & as stated above.... it's just arthritis. No surgery needed b/c there's nothing that can fix it. More fish oil he says! No running (I'm not happy about that one)... no zumba either... but hey, I can walk - on flat areas (t... Read more
A walk with no pain!

My boss went to Florida for the week so I have off work - which makes me incredibly happy! It also means I have time to clean (ugh) and I did get the floors swept & mopped and rugs vacuumed. It's a start! It's a gray, windy 50 degree da... Read more

So last weekend my husband bought me an Iphone as an early b-day gift.... so long to the dumb phone! The other day my 14 yr old looks at my phone and says (in that bored female teenager voice) "mom, you have like, no apps". Which isn't true, b... Read more

I realized the other day I was getting sad because I miss exercising. That still sounds funny to me :) The knee is still hurting so I'm calling tomorrow to get an appointment to have it checked out. No more ignoring it & hoping the pain goes... Read more

Something is up with my left knee again. It's the front & bottom portion of the knee which sends out splitting pains... but if I keep moving it, the pain goes away for a while. Almost like it has to be worked out. I walked a half mile down to... Read more

For those of you who don't use a fitbit, I'm sure you think I've gone crazy or have St. Paddy's day on the mind. But, it's neither :) Fitbit shows your dashboard and there is a square for steps, calories burned, miles, active minutes and f... Read more

Yesterday was another down day. Had a meeting at my son's school. He's failing again. Since we moved 3 years ago he has struggled constantly at school. I've got a referral now for a therapist - we're thinking maybe he's depressed. Almost 16... Read more
