Roadblocks #2
Tuesday, October 27, 2020      2 comments

So I told my son (who still lives with me but is great - we don't fight - he works full time - he pays probably way more than his share) about walking in our neighborhood park His response - if you go walking in that park (not in the woo... Read more
Sometimes I put up huge roadblocks for myself (sigh)

Yesterday I was at my subdivision's park (not the one I normally walk at) waiting for people to pick up some "slow down" signs that they could put in the yards I've only gone to this park once for geocaching because many members on our FB g... Read more

Still waffling about continuing with Boy Scouts - still not missing it (so why am I waffling? good question). I guess I feel that since I haven't been active even with the virtual meetings and some of the newer parents have been maybe it's time... Read more
New week - change in weather a bit
Monday, September 28, 2020      3 comments

Today is the last warm day until a change to some cooler weather. I'm in central Ohio and it could be 80 on a Monday and 50 on a Tuesday lol That said it looks like this whole week will be in the 60s. I think - if memory serves me - we warm u... Read more
First day of fall 2020
Tuesday, September 22, 2020      4 comments

So this just happened - today is the first day of fall - somehow I missed spring and summer (as did many of you) - it was all jumbled up into nothingness - each day the same because we just couldn't do anything. That said I did begin to tac... Read more
Happy birthday to my son!!
Tuesday, August 11, 2020      4 comments

Today is my son's 35th birthday!! Goodness how time flies - seems like just yesterday he wasn't even tall enough to look over the bathroom sink counter and all I could see were tiny little fingers at the edge and him peering up at me. ... Read more
Hate to say this but....I'm not minding this "stay at home"
Friday, April 17, 2020      3 comments

I don't - I really don't. I'm getting my house managed - I'm cooking more home meals and less going out because my son (who still lives at home) is now working from home. I'm enjoying the fact that there are less cars out - less people (I must... Read more

Didn't even realize today was the first day of spring - guess it's been many many years since it's been this early and not fallen on the 20th or 21st ... Read more
Trying to be more consistant
Sunday, March 08, 2020      3 comments

I've gotten more consistent in my walking - when it's good out I've been going to my local park - still not getting 10,000 steps in (or even 5,000 and not even 3500) but I walk until my arthritis in my hips make me stop (which is about 2 laps a... Read more
Wednesday Feb 19 - Maybe the start of something??
Wednesday, February 19, 2020      0 comments

Well I hope so anyway - after much moaning groaning bitching and excuses (my son calls them excuses - I call them reasons) I've been pondering walking again - going to the Y again (I have silver sneakers so I can use the gym for free). I ke... Read more
Blah

Nothing good - nothing bad Scouts - again not a good week with the Scoutmaster - we do need a one on one - where he can tell me what he wants without blindsiding me with things like I don't know what I'm doing. Maybe if he'd communicate ... Read more
Not a week of fails but frustration - sorta

Overall my week went well 1) spent some time decluttering 2) stayed on track for posting my points on my WW app and even trying a new recipe (which was really really good - which surprised me as WW - years ago - had a lot of recipes th... Read more

Saturday, January 18, 2020      1 comments

So Saturday is my day at ceramics - I'm lucky in that the place I go to doesn't care if I work on ceramics or whatever so today I decided to try to work on a craft project and a 2 jewelry projects Craft project - was doing some napkin decou... Read more

Sunday, January 12, 2020      3 comments

So.....had all intentions to start walking at my local park - didn't happen - on Monday and Tuesday my son needed to be at work at 5:00 am which meant I needed to be up at 3:30 and when I got home from taking him I just went back to bed (walking... Read more

Sunday, January 05, 2020      2 comments

I'm so glad I'm doing WW (blue) My son loves to cook and several times a week he wants us to cook a meal. I'm so glad I know how to portion control and tracking otherwise I his zeal for cooking would sabotage my journey. Today he want us ... Read more
