  1. Woo hoo! Faster and better!

  2. My participation here will be spotty for a long while. My mother has cancer surgery on Oct 5. Radiation should be in Nov. I will be driving mountain roads in snow conditions. Something I have never done before. This is one of those years where I wish I had someone to do things for me.

      Will be keeping your mom and you in my thoughts and prayers.

      I will be praying for your mom's surgery on Monday.

  3. Planning to get away for a few days so I posted the birthdays ahead.

  4. Now I have something in common with Bruce Banner.

      I have those BIG bouts of anger as well. Just take a deep breath and count to three. I don't turn green though. Hope you are the same.

      I'm good now. After all the water I drank yesterday, I've flushed most of the radioactive substance through my system.

      Yay! Excellent news!

  6. Empty-headed day. I think I have a man-flu.

  7. Rest till Monday. Okay, so I have a kid's ministry event today and a leader's training tomorrow. It's still rest.

  8. I confess. I mowed one third of the back yard today. It was tough because most of it is at least a foot tall.

  9. Started an exercise program today. 10 reps of 8 exercises.

  10. Upped my walk this morning. Won't allow myself to do less that 1.5 miles.

  11. I guess Muga is nothing like cuppa.

  12. Married 37 years today. Not feeling like celebrating at all.

      Nothing like a good friend. You've been through a lot lately. I hope you had a good evening.

      Not that it's a contest, but I had to cut the corn from the cob for him, and check for bones in the salmon. He didn't eat his veggies. There are other childish things but then I start sounding whiney.

      I'm just sitting here reading and laughing like crazy!

      I have to admit it can be entertaining if you're not living with it. I would say that he is trying to make up for it by fixing the back door, but I'm not sure he even realizes that I've had enough of the child.

  14. Up to 1.5 miles in the morning, and have reduced my salt and fat intake by 50%. Might be good on the fat side, but is there a minimum amount of salt needed daily?

      Congrats on your walking progress! :)

  15. Working on webpage recovery.

  16. Baby, it's cold outside!

  17. The leaves are almost gone, but we have not even reached the halfway point of autumn.
