The barn opened again 3 weeks ago. I am riding one of the lesson horses as I am not quite ready for Jack yet. It was bittersweet as every time I’ve had to take off riding in the past, JC was always waiting for me. He was definitely much easier ... Read more

DH finally finished the kitchen remodel. Before I share pics I just want to tell everyone to be safe. This is nothing to play with. My brother in law’s brother contracted Covid from his son who had been in New York. His son had a mild case... Read more

This is a really hard blog to write. It is with great sadness and loss that I have to tell everyone that I had to put JC down last week. He started to colic on Feb 14th. The vet came out and oiled him and gave him meds. He was no better by Satur... Read more

I thought we were done with the scammer and my son. However, my son was acting badly toward his sister and went off on me Monday morning. At that point, I knew something was going on. He has one computer he will not give me access to. He left to... Read more

I have really fallen off for the support I always got from SP. I haven't been blogging lately and I find it helps me if I get things written down. I need to go back to doing this regularly, but it seems, time goes so fast. I'm still doing ... Read more
Still Accountable

I have learned a lot from Real Appeal. I stop and think and take inventory of my hunger. I measure and I pay attention. My insurance pays for it. I like it because it keeps me accountable. I am still tracking everything I eat and drink. I a... Read more

I can't believe how fast time goes. I last wrote a blog in June and here it is July. I have been doing pretty well. I haven't lost a ton, but I haven't gained either. Unfortunately, I have hit some snags in the recent weeks. I was doi... Read more

I am at the point that I can not sit and heal anymore. I think the resting to heal is making me worse. My back and my neck are horrible. I know this is from sitting and "resting". Resting isn't good. Resting hurts. I am taking my health bac... Read more
