27 Out Of 30!

That's how many days of exercising I did for April!! I missed one Sunday because I was just busy and so tired by the end of my day, that there wasn't any way I'd walk. And I missed this past Saturday and Sunday because I was trying to give my foot a break. But I'm soooooo glad that I walked so much! I'm up to about 9-10 minutes at a time now. I am at the stage where I feel really guilty if I don't walk. I guess that's a good thing!!

I thought that I was getting a cold earlier this week. I guess it ended up being the change in weather this week. It went from almost summery weather to early fall temps. YUCK! I knew there was a reason the plastic still needed to be up! I know I said I'd take it down May 1st, but I'm thinking I'll still probably wait. Maybe a few more days, who knows. I'm just hoping the cooler weather will disappear again, and not come back til the real fall season!

I'm going to a basket auction on Friday evening with Joanie …

Oh Crap

My mom called me a little bit ago. Kim, my housemate, won't be my housemate in a month. She gave my mom her 30-day notice. I guess since she isn't sure she'll have a teaching job for next year, she is just going to move back to her parents' house in Ransomville (the boonies, some people around here call it). This really sucks. I liked her, she was actually paying rent, and on time!

I wouldn't really worry about this too much if it weren't for the fact that my mom isn't the best at being a landlord. She doesn't do things so she won't get trampled all over by a tenant, like the one we had last year, Joseph. Never asked for a background check, never asked for a security deposit. She didn't with Kim, either, despite the fact that my best friend's husband is Kim's cousin. I've never heard of a landlord not asking for at least a security deposit! Anyway, I could vent on and on, but I need to get myself ready to go have FUN tonight. This is…

Some New Stuff!

Yesterday I went to Fashion Bug with Joan, and despite the fact I had no money, I bought (more like swiped my card) two cute skirts for the summer. Now, I can't tell you how long it's been since I've bought myself anything. Of course, I buy my household stuff, vitamins I need, toiletries, etc. But come on, how fun is that?? I hardly ever buy myself things, like clothes. I've been getting "new" clothes from one of my friends husband's cousin the past couple years, because she basically is around my size. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind at all getting clothes someone else isn't going to wear anymore!! But anyway, I got these skirts, and despite the cost, I have a feeling I'll be wearing them alot during the summer. So I guess it's a purchase that won't go to waste!

Today, I bought sneakers. To be quite honest, this has been a necessity for a very long time, but I didn't have the money for it either. I had no money for it today …


I had a dream this morning that I was ripping off the plastic on my windows by scraping my nails down it, as if I was scraping a chalkboard. Joanie was helping me. It was strange! I guess I'm anxious for May 1st to come around. lol The weather here will start getting a bit chillier than what we've been having within a couple days. I think I saw a day next week in the mid-40s. That is not very nice!!

I finally went to the nurse practitioner about my right foot yesterday. It wasn't getting any better, and it's been a week since the top of it started hurting. It's still just the slightest bit swollen, and the lovely vein I have sticking out of my foot (been like that all my life!!) is red and tender. Right where the sneakers I wear hit all the time. The NP seems to think my sneakers have alot to do with it. She asked if I've done anything different lately, and it dawned on me that I've gotten back into exercising, and I'm doing it every day! Now, this sa…

At A Loss

I have had PH for 32 years so far. When I was about 26, 27, I found out about the PH website, and I read the boards for a couple weeks before I started posting there. Over the years, I have made many good phriends. I've lost many good phriends, and some phriends have disappeared without knowing what even happened to them. I've learned so much about PH and everything that goes along with it. I've discovered people who have gone through things I've dealt with my entire life. The PH website has been like a godsend to me, and I have been thankful for finding out about it.

Over the years, there have often been rifts and arguments here and there. People disagree, it's bound to happen. Some carry it on a little too long, but then it somehow ends. The past several months have been the worst I've ever seen. It's been awful. I admit to reading almost all of them, and have only joined in a couple times, but for the most part, I've stayed out of alot. The most recen…

Some Thoughts!

First off, I put a new playlist on my blog. I don't think alot of people will like the music, so I don't have the songs starting automatically. Just hit play on the playlist if you're brave enough to see what I picked! LOL They are songs I've heard on the radio lately that I really like. Most of them are dance!

I had a fantastic day yesterday! The weather was gorgeous, so I was out in it for most of the afternoon! I had to get drugs, so after I left the pharmacy, I went to visit Grandpa in the cemetary. My Grandpa died in 1994, and I go often to the cemetary to "talk" to him. I miss him alot, even after all this time. After that, I went to see if my Dad was still at his shop, which he was! He put the clamp he got on my muffler, although I think my muffler is going to need a replacement shortly. I left his shop after awhile and stopped by my parents' house, and my mom offered me lunch. It was a yummy sandwich! After that I went back home and repotted my las…

This Is What I Miss About Spring/Summer!!


Bad Kitty!!

Someone's been blogging late at night when I'm asleep, or when I'm out and about. I've always wondered what he does when I'm not around, and then I catch him in my computer chair! Now I guess I know!!

A Bit Of Really Good News!!

While we were waiting for church to start this morning, my dad asked me if my mom told me about his bloodwork results. I said no. So he said to me, "I'm officially a cancer survivor." I was so happy, I had a couple tears in my eyes!! I told him that was such great news! He goes back to Roswell on Tuesday to have a checkup with the doctor there, but there should be good news. It's just such a relief to me that my dad decided to have the surgery done back in October, and that he's done really well since then. Thank goodness!!!

Days Sure Do Go By Fast

I realized I haven't posted anything since Sunday. Geesh! Every time I wanted to, it ended up getting too late, or I'd forget completely. Things are ok here. It was kind of a tiring week physically, although I still did get my exercise in! Even on Tuesday, when I hadn't exercised at my usual time because I had bloodwork done, and I was too exhausted to later on. I felt so guilty about it, that I ended up walking during the time I had in between the sports segment on the local news, and the beginning of the nightly news. During those 7 minutes, I was done, and got back in the living in time to see Brian Williams introducing the night's main segments. lol

I do have to admit, though, that I did not exercise today. I actually went to church this morning with my parents. I haven't gone since November. I was too sick during the holidays to go, then I became too paranoid about possibly getting sick after I started feeling better. I was very self-conscious about people co…


Today is another sunshiney day here in Niagara Falls! It's also a bit warmer than it was yesterday, which was another sunshiney day! Spring is actually starting to pick up around here. It's about time! Something that made me really happy yesterday was finally seeing a robin! In fact, I saw three (Ali, they finally made it here, whooo hooo!!)!! Yay, spring has sprung!!

Today has been Day 6 of exercising! Or, as my 2 1/2 year old niece would say, "ekercising." I have to admit, that besides starting again on Tuesday, it's been a mental battle with myself to actually get on the treadmill. Every day, I've thought of reasons NOT to walk. And then I have to yell at myself and tell myself I need to get my ass on the treadmill!! LOL! I'm not running any marathons, that's for sure. In fact, all I've been doing so far are 6mws. Sometimes I've been tired, sometimes I've felt like walking more, but I really need to make sure I don't overdo it, so I&…
