Thursday, October 22, 2015      3 comments

It's been a long day. Started early with getting Mark showered and dressed to go to the oral surgeon to have three more teeth pulled. He commented that when they ask his birthday he would say "Today!" His humor was and remains quite good, qui... Read more
Had an iffy type day
Wednesday, October 21, 2015      4 comments

Wound up having to fight with insurance companies after getting back from the chiropractor. I had planned to stop at the gym on my way home, but I was needed at home, so I did the round the house workout, much later than I really wanted. H... Read more
Lasagna without 5 cheese garlic bread
Tuesday, October 20, 2015      6 comments

Well another first!!!! I made lasagna and garlic bread, but this time I cut only enough garlic bread for Mark. (He needs to loose 12 pounds, and you would think I was killing him!) My portions are very strict, he has a bit more leeway, but I ... Read more

Monday, October 19, 2015      4 comments

It's not easy getting up and eating within the hour. It's not easy getting 60 minutes of exercise in each day. It's not easy planning and executing healthy meals. It's not easy being a 24/7 caregiver and still doing everything else. It's... Read more

I shared my fear this morning before I left that we were going to meet friends at the Asian Super Buffet - akin to a bar for an alcoholic still new to recovery! At least that's how I looked at it. I decided that I would share that withy Champi... Read more

I am feeling enormously humbled at the great encouragement I am getting to do the real work of becoming who I am meant to be and become. But today wasn't one of the best days, it was hard getting all the things done that needed to get done. W... Read more
I can become all that I am meant to become
Friday, October 16, 2015      9 comments

I've had or am having another one of those busy days where it seems like I just can't stick to my time because something else pops up and takes priority. As a 24/7 Caregiver, I do have to respond when I'm needed. All that being said, I was ref... Read more

Trying to get back on track
Thursday, October 08, 2015      8 comments

I guess it's harder than I expected getting fully back on target after being sick. I'm trying to balance too many things all at once. It was easier when it was watering and weeding and walking twice a day. All these doctors visits and having ... Read more
