Day 100: The First One Hundred Days
Saturday, April 09, 2011      10 comments

I had thought (!) I was going to write one of those brilliant blogs for this one, it being a milestone day of sorts 'n' all. But WYSIWYG, at least tonight, lol... Updates: --still taking care of the back. Did I mention I skipped the se... Read more
Day 99: Bottles of Beer on the Wall, 99 Bottles...
Friday, April 08, 2011      5 comments

Well, you know, that's what I thought of when I realized it was Day 99, lol. It's late and I was going to toss off a quick one, but I sent an email a few minutes ago about one of the pictures on my main page. ... Read more
Day 98: Past My BEDTIME--!
Thursday, April 07, 2011      5 comments

Running late 'cause I am so far behind. I've been working on catching up with the things I've let slide the past several days, so I did some housework today (but gently!), packed one tote (didn't move it, just packed it), and now have a dozen so... Read more
Day 96, Part II: Better, MUCH Better!
Wednesday, April 06, 2011      15 comments

My stomach is iffy, tho I think the medication that's supposed to coat it (making it ibuprofen proof, lol) is helping. Even with it, my digestion just does not like IB. BUT - it surely is making my back feel much, much better! I'm not hunch... Read more
Day 96, Part I: Another 2-fer Day
Wednesday, April 06, 2011      13 comments

...as in 'two for the price of one.' I can't remember if two-fer is Yank-speak and BOGOF (bog-off) is Brit, or t'other way around. I don't lose the American accent, but after while the line blurs - in my own head, that is - between which idioms ... Read more
Day 95: Behind, Behinder, Behindest...
Tuesday, April 05, 2011      10 comments

I don't think it gets more behind than that, lol. When I worked at the bank, occasionally I would get a customer who had an existing checking account but wanted to open a new, second checking. Why? Because s/he would have the current one so... Read more
Day 94: S-L-O-W Day!
Monday, April 04, 2011      13 comments

The back is better, but I'm taking it easy. The next time I go to the GP I think I'll ask him about a 'bone density' test or whatever. Tho there were plenty of old ladies in my family who've never gotten osteoporosis (lotta dairy farmers in my a... Read more
Day 93: Also Short'n'Sweet
Sunday, April 03, 2011      5 comments

Mainly because there's some 'sweet' news: the back seems moderately better. I've been winnowing more specific-for-backs exercises, but instead of simply trying to make it more comfortable, I want doable things that will actually strengthen it. I... Read more
Day 92: No Blog Tonight

Company = yay! Backache = boo... Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are--! ... Read more
Day 91, Part II: Quiet End to a Foolish Start
Friday, April 01, 2011      16 comments

This morning while Himself was in the shower, I sneaked into his office and put a leetle tiny piece of scotch tape on the bottom of his computer mouse, over the laser 'eye.' I admit, he has a good sense of humor - better'n mine, I imagine. He en... Read more
Day 91, Part I: Early AM Day-Brightener
Friday, April 01, 2011      3 comments

A day or two ago I posted an early blog featuring the, ah, work of someone who likes to play with food. This morning while browsing my round of news headlines and websites, I came across the following. http://www.google.co.uk/

Day 90: *sigh*
Thursday, March 31, 2011      16 comments

Today was just a washout of a day. I hurt my back (again) this morning and it's been nagging at me all day long - not enough to really incapacitate me (thank goodness) but enough to keep me from doing 90% of what I wanted to do. I did get t... Read more
Day 89, Part II: Somewhat Longer, But With Less Sass
Wednesday, March 30, 2011      8 comments

I'm glad you enjoyed those 'bent objects' pix. We all seem to have so many food issues that sometimes it's good to get a laff out of the very stuff that can bedevil us, thinks me. It took me two hours (!) to do an online project that I feel... Read more
Day 89, Part I: Short 'n' Sassy
Wednesday, March 30, 2011      7 comments

Off to go 'n' do in a moment - bizzy day today, with a doctor's appointment for BP check, amongst other things, but while I was skimming the headlines, I found this: ... Read more
Day 88: Well, I'll be darned--!
Tuesday, March 29, 2011      14 comments

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." --Charles Dickens, 'A Tale of Two Cities' No, it wasn't like that today - no dramatic ups and downs (for which I'm glad, mind you), nothing major or outstanding in either direction. T... Read more
