Had a major setback with exercise: with the tarsal tunnel I have been dx'ed with when I was walking I was compensating. This caused a hip problem which got so bad I was in ER! After two weeks of PT (ultrasound and heat so far, with a few exerci... Read more

When I want a particular recipe, I cannot find it? When I don't want that one, yet another one, I can only find the particular recipe I'm looking for NOW? I want to make peppermint stick ice cream for DGD. The recipe I want calls for 2 ca... Read more

Since I use FF exclusively, I found a nifty little extension called My Weekly Browsing. I use it to open pages (Ion particular days, such as our local grocery stores the day of the new specials, so I can make a better grocery list. OOM (see blo... Read more

As I was doing something, I cannot remember what, I realized how to rearrange my kitchen. So, I will be taking the shelving where I currently store my plastics outside TODAY to start priming it, to paint. Then my baking stuff will be stored the... Read more

When I got my Kindle, I found the most wonderful app, "Out of Milk" (available at outofmilk.com and on your Kindle and other places where you get apps -- can be used on almost anything). It is the first program I've found that lets me inventory... Read more

I read the last blog, and so much has changed. I'm in school now (again, only I don't remember the first two years due to medication). When I realized I cannot walk up one flight of stairs, I knew during summer intersession I had to do somethin... Read more

I broke my left leg in November 2010 and have had 3 surgeries since. Next week, I find out if I can exercise again. Since the last surgery left my leg in "swiss cheese" mode, I can't do any lateral moves at all. So, I've gained 60 pounds. 3 ... Read more

Ten days after I swore I'd be more active. Well, in a way, I have been, with physical therapy. Patty really works me out. My leg needs to rest the rest of the day after she's been here. She tells me, and I have to agree, that I'm getting str... Read more

Didn't start Friday or yesterday. Sigh. Had a flu shot on Friday evening and felt like crud on Saturday. Stayed in bed, mostly asleep, yesterday, which is NOT really like me. Hubby was asleep on couch with a bad back. So, yesterday pretty mu... Read more

Thursday, September 16, 2010      2 comments

I have finally decided to get back on the Spark horse, which had helped me so much a year ago. The doctors had been messing with my medications, and I ended up gaining almost 35 pounds. I'm almost as big around as I am tall! I asked hub... Read more
