Saturday, August 20, 2011      18 comments

My oncologist's office always has two large jigsaw puzzles in progress, each on a large table. (I think this is standard oncology office practice from what I hear?) Those jigsaw puzzles bring people together. If you think about it, the very p... Read more
something that makes me chuckle
Thursday, August 18, 2011      6 comments

Know what always makes me laugh when I look at a SparkPage? Especially my own!? That little sentence that appears at the bottom of the beginning of what we write if we write a lot. Chuckle every time I read mine, which says: "Show le... Read more

Still in flare. Sometimes I get impatient waiting for these bouts of pain to end because life sort of gets put on hold. That's why this morning I got up at 6 after not sleeping much, then decided at about 9am to hit the heat (use heating pa... Read more

Many people in my age group are able to fullfill dreams as they retire; they made plans and are able to check off dream-goals as they do them. Ok, that's great. But it doesn't work that way for everyone. Many of us had plans that had to be th... Read more

The frustration is annoying. If anything I'm hypervigilant about my nutrition. On track. And I'm pushing my admittedly pathetic limits on increasing exercise and general activity level. On track... well, according to ability, anyway. ... Read more

The Food Plate...just seems to add to my confusion over food
Wednesday, July 13, 2011      3 comments

Tonight I spent a little time looking at the government's site for the new food plate plan information. The initial information posted as GENERAL recommendations seemed pretty sound, advice solid and sensible. According to that preamble, a... Read more
Focus on the now of the journey

Over the years I've listened to many people talk (or write) about their goals as though the goals are done-deals. In fact I noticed many people just seem to be stuck on some dream goal... that may or may not be realistic. Ok, if it comes to be... Read more
Time for me to get a hobby

While all my friends are retiring, I still wish I could work. Truly, I miss being able to say "TGIF". And having a schedule. Forget that the disability issues are annoying, the fact is that we NEED schedules of even some loose sort. If not f... Read more

My elder son and his wife gave birth to their second child, another son, last night at 8:04pm Hawaii time. She'd been in labor since 3am HI time so it was a long long LONG day. It was wonderful that my son was home from Irq and able to b... Read more

Yes, that's right: Put a positive spin on huge hurdles!! Many hurdles are REAL, folks. Not all in the head, but very, very real. Life-affecting hurdles are no joke. My biggest hurdles revolve around my disabilities, especially the... Read more
