Yep--I am. I just turned 56--while that isn't a big accomplishment--MANY people turn 56, I have managed to do it AND I feel like I have turned the clock backward! I did a cross fit class at the gym--you know, the kind where you swing a sled... Read more

DD3 had a horrid trip back to school. Got to Chicago okay but her flight to Wausau couldn't land due to too much fog. So it circled Wausau and then returned to Chicago. They re-booked her for 6:00 today (Sat) and we offered to pay for a hotel r... Read more

"Messed" up
Saturday, December 29, 2012      1 comments

I am back to "weight loss" instead of maintenance. Too many goodies meant too much temptation and I have eaten way more than I needed to. So now back to the basics and back to the hard work of losing. All the DDs have been home so I have ... Read more

Saturday, November 03, 2012      1 comments

We were without power for almost 4 days--reminded me of Irene last year but no water in the basement so I wasn't frantic this year. We have been out a about a bit--the number of trees that fell is staggering. The TV pictures are unreal--and yet... Read more
