2020 The New Year

Seems like just yesterday I was on here, where does time go!! WordPress sent me a reminder that I am starting my 5th year with them. Really where does time go.

I am no closer to my weight loss goal now as I was when I started in 2015.

It has left me to really think about what I am doing, and why its not working. I can pretty much answer that right now. Because I haven’t really tried. I did loos 70 pounds, but have gained back 50!!

I am going to spend some time in my head these next few weeks trying to make a decision that I can stick to. I have started weight watchers again, !! and will continue with that. I am down 4 pounds so that is something. I have to quit self sabotaging and figure it out. I am 63, overweight by at least 100 pound and I really am on my last journey in this life. I am not looking for sympathy, pity or any other kind of help. I am just being honest here. That’s why I started this blog, if not only to myself, but however I have meet a lot of wonderful people on here and thank you all for being my blog friend. I am not sure what I am going to do next.

I am thinking that I will post on my site everyday to help me remain focused going ahead.

I never believed I would be 63 years old or see 2020 roll around, but yet here I am. SO I really want to make the best of it. I hope that everyone had a wonderful New Year and are starting the year off on a positive note.

I am heading back to California next week to spend a long weekend with my kids and see the new Starwars movie. My son and I have seen them all together as they came out. So we can’t muck up that tradition.

I will be back tomorrow.

Merry Christmas Eve

Just wanted to say happy holidays!

We are staying in, having nice meal and just enjoying the day Christmas Day. Raining here in the Southwest desert, really makes is feel like winter.

I hope everyone gets there sock filled with happiness and wake up to a wonderful day.

Be back before New Years were Ole St. Nick makes me another year older!!!

Happy Holidays to All

Well I went and did it, I signed us up for Acorn TV and Netflix. I have been very busy binge watching all the shows I never thought I would watch. LOL Seems like you start with the first episode and before you know it your in the middle of the last season. LOL I really need to stop!! I have been watching Outlander in small doses, its pretty intense at times. SO that is where I have been.

I looked up and boom its the middle of December, dam near Christmas. I did get all my cards out, but in truth I did them while watching the West Wing. LOL I watched that back in the day! and re-watching it now makes me laugh out loud!

Its hard to believe the end of the year will be here in a couple weeks. I wonder what 2020 will bring to our lives.

Not much else happening. We did have one night full of thunder and lightening all night. Couldn’t sleep due to the constant thunder. I hadn’t stayed all night in a long time. The storms here are so different from what I was raised around. The thunder hardly stops, just keeps rolling along and every now and then a really, loud house rattling one happens right over the top of you with the crackling of lightening, then the downpour of rain. Pretty spectacular.

My friend came in from Yuma and spent a few days. We ran around town to all our favorite places. That was fun. Been pretty much a quiet holiday for us, Had a wonderful Thanksgiving, just the 2 of us, good dinner and dip in the hot tub and then back to binging on our shows. LOL

If I don’t get back on here before Christmas. Merry Christmas, may your holiday be spent with those you love, good food and something merry!

November, Holidays are in the air!! Everywhere I go it seems there are turkeys, and Christmas all around me. Certainly glad the weather has cooled off. Hot tub weather has started once again. And it really is the best thing for achy joints!

Not much else going on here. Squash in the oven, leaves on the ground, and the smell of cinnamon in my coffee. Life is good!!

Hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of the holiday season.


Back home from my travels, all unpacked and settled back into the normal grind. Had a fantastic time with my kids, went to all my old haunts and spent a lot of time with friends. Wish we just lived closer so I could go more often. The weather was wonderful and the drive there and back totally uneventful.

My allergies are getting better, no more vertigo, I started taking Sudafed and it really helped. I have gone to a different ENT doctor, and I just had a hearing test done, no need to go back for a year. He also said that he didn’t think I needed surgery. YAY My hearing test showed I was having difficulty with high pitches, but all in all doing fine. No inner ear pressure and they did a vertigo test on me and I passed it with flying colors. I am signed up for a scratch test to see what local flowers and trees I am allergic to. So I may have to take allergy pills for the see-able future to keep on top of the allergies, but alls good.

Not a lot going on. Enjoying the fall weather and colors. Santa Rosa was in full fall color. Ours is just starting. Our niece (Peters niece) will be here next weekend so looking forward to some company. And in Feb my best friend from New York will be arriving with a bunch of her family, so I will get to spend some time with her to.

Life is good. We are happy as happy can be.

I will try to get back on here before another month goes by.

I hoped you all danced under the blood moon, or hunters moon as some say. I got a few twirls in.

Happy fall everyone, have a wonderful Halloween

It is so hard to believe that it is the end of September already. We had a very wet mabon day. Seemed perfect for the first day of fall. I have not seem any changing of color yet, but by the end of next month it should be starting. The monsoon just gave us one last storm. They even had a tornado in Wilcox, about 60 miles to the east on interstate 10. Thank goodness it didn’t kill anyone, just a lot of destruction. I must say that when they put out an alarm to stay in the middle of your home away fron windows and that hail will likely damage your car if left out, along with high winds, its a little intimidating. We had rain, lots of it, but no real wind at our house. I am so surprised at what a pack these monsoon cells that cross over us can carry. Thunder was deafening. The internet kept going out, so I gave up and turned out all the lights and enjoyed mother natures lightening show for a couple hours and went to bed. Not sure I like these powerful storm cells or not. I am thankful that we didn’t buy our house on the eastside at he bottom of the mountains. They always seem to get hit the hardest . Our hot weather is gone and we are in the mid 80’s and already dropped to the ‘s at night. Hope everyone else is enjoying the change of season.

Good news on the sinus front. Went to see a ENT doctor, no polyps, no tumors, ears are clear, but sinus are all swollen. I also have a deviated septum, like the rest of the millions of people. So he put me on Flonase and continue the allergy pill daily along with the antihistimane spray for weeks and I go back for another CT scan and hearing test. YAY I Feel way better knowing this. I am hoping that I can get my sinus happy again before going back, I do not want sinus surgery!!!

Heading to Californian on Saturday to spend the week with my kids. Can’t wait. Haven’t seen my daughter since last August. I really am in need of hugs from them both. Wish my husband was going with me, but he really doesn’t do well sitting around, and in someone else home. SO he and Chika will stay here and watch over the house. He will certainly be happier for it.

Nothing much else to say. Keep on smiling and enjoy fall.
