or to put it in a positive light: Praise, Uplift, Delight (as I have as my profile picture on Facebook). One thing I learned when my kids were younger was to phrase things in a positive light: “keep the milk in your cup” instead of “don’t spill your milk” or […]

Don’t Complain, Condemn, or Criticize …


I really tried to do a Christmas letter this year. I did. It might even still be saved as a draft post. All I can say: it has been one helluva year. A wild ride, that is for sure. I am glad it is coming to a close and hope […]

2012 Drawing to a Close


I guess I am on a roll today. Technically, this will be three posts in a matter of hours. Does it count if one was written 3 months ago and one was started a few weeks ago? I thought so … I last had an A1c in August and was […]

Paleo Diet



lol Seriously, though, I am. We were having problems with our tv and the sound. It was fading out and not always in the same spot on a recorded show and not all the time. We could watch the show on another television without issue. I was beginning to think […]

Just that good…


is right around the corner and I am eating low carb. How in the hell am I going to pull of things like dressing and pumpkin pie and sweet potato casserole – OH MY! I am Googling until my eyes bug out and there are so many recipes. I don’t […]

Thanksgiving …


Well … we did it. We are now homeowners and living in our new house! It was a nail biter, down the last minute. Our closing was set for 3 p.m. on a Friday and we were told we were approved at 11 a.m. on Thursday. Something weird about Ohio […]

Crazy busy



Those who know me, and not even those who know well will know this: I like to be in control. Of myself. Of the situation. Of others (is that the oldest child syndrome at play?) I don’t like relying on others to do for me. When I fell, I needed […]

Trusting the Process
