Life/pandemic/my mom update
Thursday, October 15, 2020      4 comments

Hi. It's been insane to think that we have been living through a pandemic; something I know that I NEVER thought would happen in our lifetime. Like everyone else, I was terrified, anxious, emotional, depressed....until around the end of June. ... Read more

I haven't posted in a long time. The tendons in my ankle finally felt better this past fall. I still occasionally have a little pain/swelling, but NOTHING like it was before treatment. When I feel some pain, it reminds me to do my at-home PT e... Read more
Torn tendons and a boot

I've been struggling with some ankle pain and swelling on and off for the past year. I was finally starting to do better with exercising regularly, and thought the symptoms were brought on by stress from the way an issue with hammertoes was aff... Read more
Wayyy overdue update and reflections. Thanks for reading.

I think that I've finally gotten back to better exercise habits. With the exception of the past few days (felt much too depressed about the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh to exercise), I feel like exercising is becoming a little easier each t... Read more
Long time no blog

It's been a VERY long time since I've blogged, and this will be short and sweet. We helped our son move to Chicago in December during the absolute coldest time of the year there. In fact, it was -16 degrees during the one day we had to walk ar... Read more
Alaskan adventure
Monday, August 14, 2017      4 comments

My husband and I were very lucky to have the opportunity to take a cruise to Alaska (roundtrip from Seattle). We went to Juneau, Skagway, and Victoria (British Columbia). I'm really not that much of a naturalist, so this was something quite di... Read more

It's pretty hard to describe the joy we experienced from our daughter's wedding a week ago, so I'll post pics instead. The ceremony was beautiful and meaningful. The rabbi that married us 28 years ago, did our daughter's baby naming and both o... Read more
Maximum stress time
Thursday, February 09, 2017      2 comments

In commenting on a friend's blog, I realize that it helps to write about what is going on in my life. I have hit a maximum stress point, yet again. My 25-yr old daughter had a tonsillectomy last Thursday to try to resolve persistent health iss... Read more
Missing my mother-in-law
Saturday, October 15, 2016      8 comments

My mother-in-law, Ruth, passed away peacefully in her sleep Tuesday night. She was 94 years old. Her health had been declining, and she developed a severe case of shingles that took too much of a toll on her already-fragile body. Ruth was s... Read more
The Good and the Bad

The Good - My son had his cataract surgery on Friday. It went very well, with no complications, thank goodness. He's doing a great job with taking his eye drops right on time and sleeping with the eye shield (to protect the eye) at night. He ... Read more

Thankfully, my husband is doing very well 15 weeks out of surgery (emergency quadruple bypass). He is still attending cardiac rehab classes 3 times/week and only has about 8 more sessions left to go. He also has an appointment with his cardiol... Read more

My husband had been experiencing some pressure in his chest during exercising (while going uphill) and some pressure in his lower arms. He never really called it "pain." After the third time, I nagged him to call the doctor for a check-up. ... Read more

We had the wonderful pleasure of attending our son's college graduation last week! Four years have never flown by so quickly. It seems like just yesterday that we left him at his dorm to start his freshman year, and returned home to an empty h... Read more
Spring Catch up/American Idol thoughts
Friday, April 08, 2016      4 comments

It's been so long since I last blogged (funny how that became a verb...)! Spring weather has been very roller coaster-ish here. Warm, cold, warm, snowflakes....you get the picture. We did have some phenomenal cherry blossoms though. So ephem... Read more
Blizzard 2016
Monday, January 25, 2016      5 comments

Well, this blizzard was quite a doozy. We were extremely fortunate that we never lost power during this event. Part of the blizzard forecast was for heavy, wet snow, which would have knocked out powerlines for sure. Luckily, we ended up with ... Read more
