Another cold morning here in NC (for us that is in the 30's).

TODAY we go back to Planet Fitness. Hopefully I will be back at M,W,F like I used to prior to sleeve.

Tuesday has been a slow shaky start for me.

Yesterday was great - I managed unbreaded chicken parm (baked) with a tiny bit of angel hair. Had the leftovers today and it was rack and ruin! Aagh.

QOTD: Kinda of a shallow one; if

Not up particularly early, but feel like wandering through the day....

QOTD: Sure it's been asked before, but do you have a pet? What kind? How long? As a child you had... I'll answer in comments as Gwen does.

B: 2 eggs

Friday! But for retired people it's hard to tell. It's clear and cold this morning. I have another project to start, but am feeling a bit languid -- I think its the major medication change. My DH reminded me it takes about 2 weeks to get used to cha

Good morning! Been up watching the ocean this morning; our last full day down here. Yesterday was perfect for ocean sailing, so friends got out the sailboat and it was quit a day!

I have a major medication change going on and was feeling gosh

Good morning! Rainy day at the beach, but temperate (last year we were here and it was in the low 20's).

We are spending 2 weeks with our friends down here; trying to make the best food choices and still enjoy our time. What a balancing act!

First, today marks the first entire year in the last 10 where I have not had a major hospitalization for something gosh awful. How wonderful is that? I do attribute it to my sleeve.

QOTD: Which day in 2018 stands out as iconic (either

Good Sunday morning. We're in SC for a couple of weeks - temperate but rainy this morning.

We come every year to spend NYE with friends of over 60 years, so its always a good break from "retired".

Good morning! Ridiculously raining 1-3" today here in NC, and its cold and damp. Woke up early, so I must be getting over the cold I've been fighting for 7 days. Glad to be feeling better.

I saw my primary care physician yesterday (I've had

We woke up to a small snow here in NC, which of course is turning to freezing rain. It looks pretty, but then again, I fall down on dry floor! The white dog loved it; the dachshund just said "NO" and came back in.

I finally saw the ENT, who

Post holiday lesson. I can eat whatever I want, if I want to feel like crap. I had 4 potato chips and my stomach locked up like a fist! AND yes, I can have sweets but even though they don't cause weight gain, I felt dreadful.

So, back on tra

Good morning! Only one day till Halloween. Up early this morning for study time before meetings. I don't know how I had time to work and do things before I retired, lol.

Only 10 days till the arrival of the Great Pumpkin! I trust you are all ready to welcome him in your pumpkin patch.

QOTD: What's one (1) best life lesson you've learned that has helped you with self-compassion?


AnnieG522 posted a discussion topic 1 year ago

Another very early morning! After all these years of retirement, I still am "early to bed early to rise" and DH is late to bed, late to rise. And the dogs stay with him!

I do enjoy the meditation time with my coffee. I get most of my studying

As NC braces for Hurricane Michael's rain and wind later in the week, it is hot here - upper 80s. Praying for the people nearer the coast especially Fair Bluff & Lumberton, Conway and Aynor, where we still have family & friends and who were devastated

The dogs and husband could not sleep, so up at 4:00 am, and they've gone back to bed. Which doesn't work for me. Got some prep done for Thursday class, moderated on my board, and read.

Up early as oldest daughter is here overnight (she's got a class to administer in Mecklenburg County). So we've had the granddog plus our two dogs...and not a lot of sleep - dogs up and down, unrolling an entire roll of toilet paper, barking at imagina

Waiting on news of Hurricane Florence here in NC....we have family and friends (and property) all along the coast. Like watching a train heading your way while you are tied to the tracks! We will only get heavy winds and rains (and power outages) up

Wednesday and for those who work, half way to the weekend! We retired people have all weekends.

Have a class this morning and am more concerned about the drive (I haven't driven a lot the past 5 years) but also have a 4 hour solo trip tomorrow

For some reasons, I always like Tuesday....even when NCIS is not back on in the evening.

They did my labs, and once again they are all right in the middle of normal, except for cholesterol. Total was 123, bad was 39, good was 62. So for a 66 year old with CVA and CAD, absolutely s
