This is officially a pain in the back. Or more accurately, a pain in the left hip at the back juncture. It's time for the heating pad and a tennis ball. It's time for pain meds. It's time to get rid of the weight that makes a frequent visitor to... Read more

That's what the Hallamore Clydesdales are. They are sweet and don't care what other people think of them. Maybe they should be my new role models. I want to be healthy, no matter what my weight. I want others to see a joyful, confident person wh... Read more

I've been using the Nutrition Tracker for a while now. I enter what I plan on eating early in the day and then check it off as I go. Lately, I've been finding I have to add more than I had originally planned because I need to get my caloric inta... Read more

Now I know why it costs an arm and a leg to get your old film negatives converted to digital CDs. It takes forever! We have a couple of decades of pics on film that I'm converting to digital files and it takes about a minute per picture to scan ... Read more

Okay, I'm the mommy, but we did go to the zoo! My youngest loves the zoo and would live there if we let her. She has to settle for the occasional visit when I get up my nerve to drive there. Most of the zoos close to us involve highway driving a... Read more

I should have known the dishwasher was just barely out of warranty when it went strange-o on me last night. This morning, hubby looked at it and it turns out the went switch is essentially rusted. We might get a few more months out of it after h... Read more

Went to the doc and she said my HDL was too low, but my total lipids were within healthy region. Went back for a fasting lipids blood draw and while the HDL went up 2 points, it still ain't enough. So now I get to stock up on fish oil and flax s... Read more

I'm going to be good this time around. Take it easy. Make sure my back is really, really healed before I move back in to exercise. Even standing for an extended period of time is wearing on my back the last two days. And I will watch what goes i... Read more

Will it ever come? I sure hope so. Of course, if history is any indicator, the Northeast will see spring any day now. I'm waiting to start my 'maters, peppers, and cukes cuz there just isn't enough sunshine yet for the poor blighters. It will al... Read more

Our homeschool group joined a bunch of other homeschoolers on a visit to our State House, followed by a trip to the aquarium. I knew my kids would loath the State House, but it wasn't too bad. A minimum of complaining and they took turns doing i... Read more

Temps in the teens are predicted for tomorrow. But I haven't seen any forecasts that are predicting huge amounts of snow. Hopefully, the Pats have been working out in the cold. I'll bet San Diego wishes they had! I may take the kids down to the ... Read more
