The storm gave us 3/4 of an inch of ice by this morning and it started sleeting again about 3 pm. The sleet makes it look like snow on the ground. We are supposed to get snow tomarrow. I worked from home and cancelled my dr. appointment and ... Read more
In memory of the Challenger
Saturday, January 29, 2011      6 comments

I can't believe it has been 25 years since the Challenger explosion. It seems like yesterday. I was working 3rd shift at the hospital (in blood bank) and came home that morning and turned on the TV. It was my birthday so I didn't have to work... Read more
My 53rd birthday
Thursday, January 27, 2011      16 comments

Once upon a time when I was younger I did not want to get old and did not want to tell people my age. In April of 2003, I was diagnosed with melanoma. Tiny little bump on my back that I thought was a zit that wouldn't go away (I could on... Read more
Winter Blahs....

Snow, snow and more snow...and then cold. I'm sick of winter. We have already had the number of inches we usually get all winter. And the usual amount was more than enough for me. I am starting to put away Christmas decor. Here's the ... Read more

Doctor appointment

Saw my GP for the first time since surgery. She was running an hour late. They screwed up the appointment and did not make it a PAP visit. My blood pressure was up so they changed my med. Her scales are 5 lbs heavier than mine (387 vs. 382 t... Read more
My Goals for 2011
Sunday, January 02, 2011      9 comments

2011 promises to be another challenging year physically. Back surgery is on the agenda. I am hoping to wait until August, but if anything changes, it may happen sooner. The doctor would like to do it now. I'm not as sure-and my benefits ... Read more

New Year's Eve is an appropriate time to stop and consider the ups and downs of the previous year. This year started out in January with both: My 17 year old cat Smoke died of renal disease. Miss you dear. And my sisters flew in to surprise ... Read more
Earthquake and Christmas with my brother's family
Thursday, December 30, 2010      9 comments

yes, they said we had an earthquake today. Only 3.8 on the scale-I slept through it this morning. I thought it was a joke when they said something on the news about 9:30 am. But it wasn't. Indiana is not the hotbed of earthquakes, so it is a... Read more

Pain Management Doc Visit
Saturday, December 11, 2010      10 comments

Tuesday was the appointment with the pain management doc. I met him when he did my two cortisone shots-so at least I knew him. But I had never had an appointment with him. It was an interesting one-very different than any other appointments. ... Read more

We were having our Christmas pitchin today-yummy food and good times with our group of people that eat lunch together (about 15 people). We come from several different departments, but always have fun. So a couple of times a year we reserve a ... Read more

Random thoughts for the weekend
Saturday, November 27, 2010      10 comments

It has been a nice, lazy weekend. Perfect for someone coming off disability and only two weeks into work. My behind was dragging at the end of a week! My back is irritated, but I think I've found a medication strategy that makes it tolerable.... Read more
