Going from a Size 18 to a Size 6

I’m not sure how long it took me. I’d have to look back on my earlier posts and I don’t have time tonight. I know the outfit I wore to my mother’s memorial service was an 18W. I always thought the “W” stood for “women’s” but a clerk in the store said it was an […]

Three strikes and you ARE out!

Last night brought the third attack since merm transferred me and my domain to a server that was supposed to be better than the last. On top of it taking a LONG time to restore everything, he decided he’d had enough. Looking around, he chose a new provider and now their server has crashed! Soon […]

That one bombed. And after I weighed in at 118.4 this morning. Day 13 Raw Food 34 ozzies grapefruit juice 4 […]

Oops! That was a big mistake!

Tomorrow is fellowship dinner day or, as my brother-in-law would say, pot-gut. I had planned to take the raw crackers I’d bought on my first trip to the new location of the organic market but I just checked the “use by” date and it’s farther off than I thought. In anticipation of that, though, I […]

Did Edison do us a favor?

This isn’t new with me. I’ve wondered about it for years. We stay up too late. We have labor-saving devices that create more work. We don’t have to do anything but flip a switch to have light, turn a dial to heat the joint, or push buttons to wash our clothes, cook our food, or […]
