Wobbly bits
Saturday, October 17, 2015      5 comments

This is probably TMI but it's something that has been flitting in and out of my mind the last few months. As I put on weight over the years, my dimensions increased and I had to use undergarments reinforced with wires. Really uncomfortable wir... Read more
Show and tell

Yesterday I had lunch with a couple of work-colleagues-turned-friends
. We try to get together two or three times a year and it's always fun to catch up. We work in an area that is still male-dominated, so I really enjoy spending some time ... Read more
Trial and error, again

A couple of months ago I went in for my annual eye exam and we learned that I am in the early stages of glaucoma. I was referred to a specialist who prescribed a daily eye drop containing a prostaglandin analog. (That just rolls off the tongue... Read more
Full of crap

I started today like every weekday, with a low cal high protein breakfast; veggies and low fat protein for lunch. And then the day turned into a dietary catastrophe. First, we had a birthday celebration at work. We take turns bringing in ... Read more
The wrong kind of thinning
Tuesday, October 13, 2015      5 comments

I don't know if it is the perimenopause, or if it was the weight loss, but my hair has been thinning. I wash it every morning in the shower, and I always have to remove lost hair from the drain. I never thought I was vain until I went googling... Read more
Jelly of the hub
Monday, October 12, 2015      5 comments

Our kid is 15 and barely literate. Or at least it appears that way sometimes, and since we spend a lot of time together she tries so hard, and I try so hard not to, use words like "jelly" and "salty." I can't say the words aloud - they are ri... Read more
No longer unrequited
Sunday, October 11, 2015      4 comments

I admit it, my kids own me. I give in almost any time they want something. Fortunately, they are kind souls (for teenagers!) and very rarely take advantage of me. And I love spending time with them. The oldest is in college though, and he ha... Read more
Goofing off

The kid's soccer game today has been canceled - the opponents don't have enough healthy players to field a team. So the kid and I stayed up late last night. She found a show called "Worst Cooks in America" on Netflix, which had us in stitches.... Read more
Sometimes a rut is good
Friday, October 09, 2015      6 comments

The in-laws are safely back home so we don't have anyone to entertain anymore. The kid's school soccer season is almost over - one more regular season game, and then the playoffs, which will probably be one and out. So we are slowly getting ba... Read more
So glad Wednesday's over
Thursday, October 08, 2015      5 comments

We brought our kid home from school this morning because someone posted a couple of threats on instagram about bringing a rifle to her school and shooting the place up. The police were investigating; the school decided against a lockdown but to... Read more
A prescription for extra hugs

We are having some unexpected family togetherness today. The hub and I are both working from home so we can take my in-laws to the airport in the middle of the day and not waste time driving back and forth and back and forth and back and forth.... Read more
Gastronomic countdown
Tuesday, October 06, 2015      5 comments

My in-laws are leaving on Wednesday so we have only one more dinner together. It has been such a treat having them here. My FIL has about twenty words of English and my MIL has enough for basic casual conversation, so there is a limit to what ... Read more

The kid decorated a gingerbread cookie house this weekend - and guess who has been helping demolish it? Fortunately everyone in the house has been taking pieces. I will be glad when it's all gone. Spicy cookies are just so hard for me to resi... Read more
Crazy kids
Sunday, October 04, 2015      3 comments

It's 2:30 am and I need to be awake for at least another hour. I'm waiting for visitors - the kid is on her school's varsity soccer team, and the seniors are "kidnapping" the younger teammates at ~3:30 am for hijinks and whatever. The instruct... Read more
Turning the corner
Saturday, October 03, 2015      2 comments

I woke up being able to breathe this morning, so I think I am finally getting better. I guess sleeping 12 hours helped! My in-laws are the easiest people to please. I made my MIL a small veggie omelette, and put it in a Kaiser roll with s... Read more
