Eggs Not Dairy, Peanuts Not Nuts?
Wednesday, April 16, 2014      15 comments

Yesterday, at the pharmacy, when I was picking up my meds, the pharmacist instructed not to eat dairy "like cheese, milk, eggs." I've heard that eggs are not dairy, even though many people put them into that category. Also heard that peanu... Read more
Back to Urgent Care Today
Tuesday, April 15, 2014      16 comments

One week later, and I'm not doing well with this respiratory infection. Let's see if they helped me today after this visit. Just got in. I've gotta kick this before it becomes pneumonia again.... Read more
Life Without Cheese
Sunday, April 13, 2014      15 comments

Almost identical blog as yesterday's about caffeine. Yes, I am - WAS - a cheese addict and since being sick, find that I can live without it. I won't totally eliminate, but it'll be significantly less intake and my body will love me for ... Read more
Life Without Caffeine
Saturday, April 12, 2014      13 comments

Spark friends who've known me for some time know that I've tried numerous times to give up caffeine. Even though I've always imbibed a small mug of coffee daily, the effects of caffeine are yucky for me. But I persisted. Even after my last po... Read more
Thought I'd Missed Joe Cross (Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead)
Friday, April 11, 2014      9 comments

While eating lunch, I noticed an ad in the paper regarding a book discussion with Joe Cross for his new book "Reboot with Joe" - a juicing diet. For those who know Joe from his film, "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead," he has influenced many to sta... Read more
Sick and Overwhelmed by Upsetting Events
Thursday, April 10, 2014      13 comments

Yesterday was a triple-header of major upsetting events. All I can say right now that when certain people have been the bane of your existence lifelong, at least they are consistent to the very end. And, of course, when you're sick, they h... Read more
Wonky Weather & Call the Midwife
Sunday, April 06, 2014      12 comments

Really crazy - last week, I had a/c on with almost 80 degrees in the house. Then, couple of mornings this week, heater on for a brief time with temps inside at 65 degrees. Next week is supposed to be back up to around 80. Not complaining, as ... Read more
Eating Cactus, Friend's Med Emergency, Exercising w/o Music, Bad Girl No Tracking
Wednesday, April 02, 2014      18 comments

Has anyone eaten cactus? I bought a jar this morning and it looks like string beans, so I'll try it. Will let you know. Yesterday was a very stressful, worrisome day as a dear friend had a medical emergency that I helped him through (a li... Read more
Harry's New Problem, Gladiolas Sprouting, Gas Tank
Monday, March 31, 2014      14 comments

I often listen to a show on NPR called "Animal House." A vet takes calls about various pet problems and people have called in with this new problem I'm having with Harry. Just when I've exhaled with relief getting his eyeballs healthy (flareup... Read more
Rockin' and Rollin' Outta Our Colon
Sunday, March 30, 2014      13 comments

If you've never heard that Dr. Demento song, and I hope I can find it myself o youtube as I haven't heard it for awhile, you may get a laugh or two. In the case of my blog, it means that the earth is shaking, rattling and rolling quite a bi... Read more
Nicky's Family - Documentary on Netflix
Saturday, March 29, 2014      8 comments

I found this last night on Netflix and am still processing. Have tissues ready, for both happy and sad moments. All I can say is - wow!... Read more
Appreciation, Clarification and Surprising Discovery
Thursday, March 27, 2014      16 comments

I really appreciate the support I received two blogs ago, when I was pondering calling my current weight my goal. Even if I did that, I'd stick around SP due to friends like you - an invaluable support system. And when I seriously sat down to ... Read more
Crazy Idea. Might Give Up.
Tuesday, March 25, 2014      14 comments

Not in any way but with this "lifestyle change" am I a brat. Thin all my life, these past 7 years of gain have made me crazy with its need for constant attention and vigilance to calories, exercise, etc. I realize that life changes and I can't ... Read more
Woke Myself Up Laughing This Morning
Sunday, March 23, 2014      17 comments

I don't ever remember that happening in my lifetime. (smiling) And I'm taking it as a sign, among other small ones that are popping up. May blog about this more at some point. Lots of flowers lately. This morning, I repotted my shamrocks... Read more
Shamrocks, Full Moon, Salt Denial
Tuesday, March 18, 2014      19 comments

Yesterday I bought a small pot of shamrocks. I'd always thought they were the same as what grows in my yard as weeds, but they are not. They are big, bright green clover with little white flowers. They close up at night (the flowers too), and... Read more
