Year Three, Day 46: Nice People!

What a lovely day I am having so far!




I managed to wake up early enough to go next door to the running track. I walked 1.5 laps and ran .5 laps. Then I came home and had a good hoop workout!

I am working on engaging my abs when I hoop. I can really feel a difference.  This is Day 12.  I do so love progress! :)




And to add to  my pleasure, I stepped on the scale and did a happy dance! I am back down to 187.  I have been gaining and losing the same 3 pounds for several weeks now.

Let's just keep going down from here, I say!



I had a lovely bite of a gluten free cobbler my lovely roommate had made and told me I could sample. It was delish!  Then I set out for my 2 minute walk to my church office job. In the parking lot, I ran into one of the older men who heads and AA group at our church. He is very kind and friendly. We chat every week. He likes to sew as stress relief. He has made a purse for me, my mother and a wallet for my father!  This morning, he popped out of his car and handed me rose from his wife's garden.  I put it in a little vase by my Jesus sign in the office. Every time I look at it, I smile.

I sure do like nice people!


Speaking of which, "R" popped in a bit ago. I had not seen him for several weeks. I was missing him!

He had a big smile on his face. We chatted for a bit. He told me I looked very nice and trim! (Blush!)

Then he said, he had been thinking about me. He asked himself why he had not asked Zita out on a date yet. But then, he told himself she would probably say no because of the "age thing".  (He is 43, I am 55). But, he told me that he thinks I look much younger than my age (blush!)

So I told him that I was just going to give him my phone number. No harm in a bit of texting, said I. And I would certainly not say no to coffee!

There! Easy as pie! A nice, friendly, attractive young man.  Asked me in a very sweet way for my number. If only life was always this easy!

After he left, I must confess, I ran to the full length mirror to see if I did indeed look good today!

I think I do! (But it is probably all that blushing and smiling!)




I think I am just going to end right here!  On a happy note!


I wish you a happy Tuesday!  Full of kindness, joy and laughter!

Talk to you tomorrow...

Love,

Zita :)

Year Four, Day 31: Sleep Business

I did it! I survived my sleep study.
It was quite intense. I think my expectations were a bit skewed. I was envisioning more like a mini retreat.  
It was all business. Sleep business.
And the minute the lights went out and the door shut behind the sleep technician as she whispered, "good night", I went into full panic mode.
Luckily I was really tired.  She had asked if I wanted to watch a bit of television before I fell asleep. But I declined. I knew to take advantage of the heavy lidded, dull brained feeling I had when I was really sleepy. Television might wake up my brain.
As she was attaching my electrodes, I watched a show on Animal Planet called "Lone Star Law", about Texas game wardens. I was hooked!  It was fascinating. I rarely watch tv, and we don't have cable at home, thankfully.  But this show drew me in. In retrospect, I should have continued to watch it until I fell asleep.
Something about being hooked up, tucked in, lights off, door closing, fel…

Year Three, Day 265: Simple Solutions to Life's Little Dilemmas

This will be a short post. It is late and I am most exhausted!

I had a wonderful day. I spent the morning through early afternoon with Baby Gracie, my mother and my daughter.  Much female bonding.

Gracie and I have quite the connection. My daughter cannot even nurse her when I am in the room because she pauses every few seconds to turn her head and look for her Zma!  It fills my heart with joy to see her eyes light up to see me.

My mother, who had not been feeling well for several weeks came and visited for a few hours.  Her doctor has adjusted her blood pressure meds. She has returned to her upbeat, positive, spunky self.  Thank goodness. I was beginning to worry!

I did many activities with Gracie after her mom left for work. But it is my  mother who has the magic touch when it comes to rocking Baby Gracie to sleep for her morning nap.



I even took my mother's advice today.  I am one of those stubborn daughters that usually does not take their parents advice.  But today when I co…

Year Four, Day 41: The ER

This morning about 4 a.m. I woke up with severe stabbing pains in my jaw.  My whole head, face and neck felt like someone had it in a vice. And was turning the lever.

I had already taken a dose of Thera-Flu before bed. Since Wednesday morning is my time with Gracie, I wanted to make sure I was well rested.  I didn't want to be groggy on Gracie duty.
But with the pain I was experiencing, I was questioning how effective I would be at all. 
I was wide awake, holding my jaw as everything throbbed.  I made a decision to take another dose of Thera-Flu.  The package said I could take one dose every 4 hours.  
So I boiled some water and sat hunched over the kitchen table.  I poured the hot water over the powder. As I waited for it to cool, I put my face close to the cup. The hot steam gave my poor face a bit of relief. 
I was wondering if I had a sinus infection. My throat was sore and raw.  I was congested. Had a bit of a cough. The jaw pain was troubling. Last week when my allergies we…
