I change the wallpaper on my phone--usually weekly. I have a collection of inspirational memes, pretty pictures, holiday themed images, just a ton of stuff I have collected on Pinterest. So, as this is coming hot on the heels of my 65th ... Read more
G. Gordon Liddy Died
Thursday, April 01, 2021      5 comments

I know this isn't the forum for political discussions, however ancient they may be, but I am stating that G. Gordon Liddy died. I saw it on Yahoo News. I didn't read the article, just noted that he was 90 years old. For those of you who a... Read more

It has been 40 days since my Walter died. I know this seems obsessive. It's what I do. I count things (see "psych" in Alaskapsych). Most people don't realize that is what psychologists do, they count things, they calculate how far from "typi... Read more

It has been 25 days since my husband died. For a myriad of reasons, Walt maintained an apartment in New Jersey. I could list them all, most were valid with some substance. However, he was unwilling or maybe unable to follow me around while I ... Read more

It started with a Kitchenaid mixer in Imperial Red. My husband bought it for me, although I repeatedly said I didn’t have a life that went with it. Then came the Kitchenaid food processor, again in Imperial Red. Hand mixer. Blender. Immersio... Read more

Now that I have your attention, I will proceed. I couldn't sleep last night thinking about this. So here we go. I was reading my horoscope, and it said (paraphrasing here) that the stars are in perfect alignment for me to visualize and su... Read more
Coming up on Nine Years
Tuesday, June 18, 2019      4 comments

I was probably three years into Sparkpeople, when I discovered, quite randomly, that I had enrolled on my father's birthday. It was, of course, long after he'd died, but still, it was on his birthday. With Father's Day just last Sunday, ... Read more

Sooo, in a effort to ramp up the health aspect of this process, I was rooting around my pantry and found some Matcha Green Tea Latte, pre packaged, just add water. I carefully followed the directions: add hot water to cup, stir, enjoy. ... Read more
Coming Back to Sparkpeople

Hello my fellow Sparklers! Yes, I have been absent for quite a while. What happened, you ask? Through my health insurance, I was able to participate with a diabetes prevention program. Evidently, with a modest weight loss (7%), a p... Read more
You'd think I would learn

So after yesterday's fiasco, I made not one, but two mistakes and it is barely 7:30 AM. First? I got on the scale. Second? I didn't plan for breakfast or lunch. Not only didn't I lose, I gained a quarter pound. Yes, I kno... Read more

So, yesterday was perfect diet wise. I stayed within my calorie range, wasn't hungry all went well. Then . . today. Let's start with the fact I did not prepare for lunch today. On Wednesday's I have to travel from one site to anoth... Read more
Gotta get some things off my chest . . . .

I have been lax. And I am going to have to start over. Again. No, I don't like it, but I need to get a grip on my health. I went to the doctor last week and the trip resulted in an increase in my BP meds, continuation of the low dose aspirin... Read more

If you happen to read some of my previous blogs (meh, maybe not worth the effort), you will see a blog about a woman named Lisa. The short version is, Lisa was a pediatric oncology nurse, one of the true heroes in the world as far as I am conce... Read more
Trying so hard
Friday, February 03, 2017      4 comments

You know, I probably give a lot of lip service to trying hard. But, like a lot of people, I think I just say what is expected. I swore so many years ago that I would not be fat and forty. Well here I am, fat and sixty with a birthday coming v... Read more
Virgin Diet
Monday, November 07, 2016      1 comments

Since I was hospitalized a couple of weeks ago, my daughter is convinced my ulcers are rooted in some sort of food allergy. While I really don't believe this to be true, I am willing to give some credence to her notions. Thus, the Virgin Diet.... Read more
