Getting Started

Posted on January 14, 2018 at 1:29pm 6 Comments

I have begun the lifestyle change, I just hope I can keep it up longer than I did the Getting Fit at 50 thing I tried 5 years ago. I won't be joining a gym this time, so it should go better. Signing up for tai chi at the community center is not the same as going to a gym. I also have a 5 minute workout posted in my office at work, from several years ago, and a yoga mat that I bought last summer. Now I just have to remember that they're there and actually do the…


It's (Past) Time to Get Fit

Posted on January 11, 2018 at 12:08pm 6 Comments

I haven't begun to exercise yet, as recommended by the rheumatologist and dermatologist I saw after my fibromyalgia diagnosis, and today I am bearing the burden of my descent into slothfulness and junk food:

I threw out my left lumbar when I was bending over to dump a 9 pound bag of cat litter into the litter box last night. Not the right side, which…


Fibro and Friends

Posted on January 6, 2018 at 11:00am 6 Comments

I saw this image on Facebook recently, and I should have recognized it for the prompt that it was. I have had a lousy week, these past three days at work, because I forgot about fibro brain fog. I am going to print this out and post it above my desk at work so I don't freak out in the future. I really feel like I'm going insane and…


A Random Picture

Posted on December 28, 2017 at 6:00pm 8 Comments

I have spent today getting my ASUS computer working again and trying to clear files out of my google drive so that I can get the pictures off of my phone again. Computers take way too long to do this maintenance stuff. I also downloaded an anti-virus program after reading several articles on which one is best. I chose the Avast free anti-virus software.

As I wait for my files to download from google I have paid some…

Let me be the first to wish you happy birthday Phyllis!
And don't you dare worry about life's contingencies today.
Sit back and glide thru it. Think happy thoughts of
a happy place
all that happy shit they say you should do!
And DO NOT rake
nor volunteer

Do something life affirming & fun
like sit around all day on the computer in yer jammies
or something..

Hey -- thanks for the note, Phyllis !  Yes, it is a major disappointment.... I hope for news soon, but since the car's been wrecked, it's all over anyway. It was an '84 bmw and the clean body was why this 'old lady' loved it so much -- the teens around here love this old car, lots of them in town. Mine was just too tempting for that 16 year-old idiot...

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your reaching out ~ thanks again,

Thanks Phyllis.

I'm grateful I can share with you ~ I hope there's some harmony too, where you are.

Let's have a wonderful New Year.
