Arm Muscles Have Turned to Jello & Happy Canada Day
Friday, July 01, 2016      7 comments

During these past months of post-shingles nerve pain, my poor arm muscles have turned to mush. I have to start building them back up, along with my immune system. I'm still trying to figure out how Canada produces so many nice people. I m... Read more
"You Won't See Yourself Coming or Going"
Thursday, June 30, 2016      13 comments

I've never understood what this means; maybe someone out there can explain it to me. I've read this phrase regarding a clothing item, shoes, purse, etc. I think I might succumb to caffeine again. It feels like I deserve one small mug of... Read more
Aftermath of Donut Caper, Expensive Habits, Packed Heating Pad Away, & Misc.
Tuesday, June 28, 2016      11 comments

A couple of weeks ago, after months of no sugar, I was at a social function of sorts and had a humongous donut. That weekend, I thwarted temptation, but once I open that sugar door, it is a huge struggle to maintain "sobriety." It's been a sug... Read more
Checking In w/Various Topics
Monday, June 27, 2016      9 comments

It's so easy to let go of blogging, just as I did with tracking food. My bad. (smiling) But blogging does, indeed, keep me accountable. I list topics in my head that I want to cover, and then get lazy about writing about them. Heat is ... Read more
Baggy clothes, Kids Dying in Hot Cars, Nerve Pain, Misc.
Wednesday, June 22, 2016      8 comments

When I added the new pic on SP that I had taken at the movies this past weekend, I noticed that I tend to wear larger sizes that are baggy even when I could easily go with smaller ones. For one thing, it's a habit to buy the bigger styles. And... Read more
My Donut Caper
Monday, June 20, 2016      9 comments

It started on Friday morning. I was walking along and ready to cross the street, when a friend drove by and motioned me to stop over at his house. So I turned left and he got out of his work truck with a huge box as his work crew was meeting e... Read more
TO GRANDPA ON FATHER'S DAY

Thank you and miss you. Love you so much. Heatwave has arrived and I'm off to a movie with a friend. Will write about my terrible donut caper in tomorrow's blog. Wishing all a happy, healthy day.... Read more
Heatwave Coming, Earthquake Insurance, Misc.
Saturday, June 18, 2016      8 comments

Wow, if you've ever had the lunch specials at Red Lobster, they have the most AMAZING shrimp tacos. Really, mega-delish. Okay, so tomorrow is supposed to bring a big heatwave and we're into a five-year drought which means trouble as we hea... Read more
Shingles and Suicide
Wednesday, June 15, 2016      11 comments

Yesterday, a healthcare provider casually mentioned the correlation between suicide and shingles nerve pain. That there are a high number of suicides resulting from nerve pain. I researched it upon arriving home and found it interesting. ... Read more
When News Coverage Turns Into Maudlin Entertainment
Tuesday, June 14, 2016      8 comments

I understand covering the facts of a nightmarish event, like the one in Orlando on Sunday, but hearing the footage of the gunshots, seeing the dead bodies, etc. days later is when it crosses the line, in my opinion. That's why I limit my ne... Read more
Rearranged My Day Yesterday
Monday, June 13, 2016      10 comments

I just wasn't in the mood to go out yesterday with a heavy heart from the Orlando tragedy. I didn't plan to feel that way, it just happened. I'll go another time, no biggie. Doing well with less sugar, no caffeine, and less nerve pain fro... Read more
Heartbreaking News Right Now from Orlando- Largest Mass Shooting in U.S. History
Sunday, June 12, 2016      13 comments

I'm in tears over this breaking news; 50 dead and 53 wounded by what they are calling a "ideological motivated" (how politically correct!) shooter. Going to light my special candle. I can't stand how violent this country has become. D... Read more
I BROUGHT CARROTS W/ME TO THE COUNTY FAIR LAST NIGHT (and didn't eat them)
Saturday, June 11, 2016      7 comments

Okay, just a few years ago, I sparked here in a blog about how worried I was about going to the County Fair that night and all of the "tempting" food that would be wafting me in its direction. Fast forward a few years, and I wasn't a bit worrie... Read more
Shakin' All Over - A Rude Awakening at 1 a.m.
Friday, June 10, 2016      12 comments

Yikes! If an earthquake isn't scary enough during daylight hours, having a strong one wake you up out of your sleep is a super-frightening event. It was tough getting back to sleep because you always wonder if there are more on the way. I... Read more
What's Up with Me
Wednesday, June 08, 2016      10 comments

I wanted to pop in and say hello to all of you; every time I think I'm going to consistently blog, I wind up not doing so. Honestly, I'm going through another "going to take a break from SP" mentality. It happens every so often when I just get... Read more
