I know better, and I must do better.

I’m so mad at myself. I thought I would take the day and celebrate the inauguration; my husband asked if I wanted anything from this donut place called ‘Winchells,’ I said yes. I got a large apple fritter and a croissant with bacon, egg, and cheese. I checked my blood sugar in the middle of …

Who doesn’t love a good rack……of pork?

There are fewer things in life right now that make me happier than this rack of pork from Costco. At Thanksgiving, my husband and I went on a search for them. We asked the butcher at Costco if he thought they were going to be available this year, and he said no. Last year was …

12/12 – 12/13 Christmas, Target, and eggs.

I meant to write yesterday but zoom Christmas Parties, and hours of shopping got in the way. The night ended with more than a little bit of vodka and singing Broadway show tunes. I mean, every evening should end that way, right? For dinner last night we had marinated chicken legs from Costco and broccoli …

12/11/20 – The Prom and a cheat dinner.

Can you believe it’s the 11th of December?  I sure can’t!  I had a good day today, a quick day at work and then I worked on some writing.  And then!!!!!!  We watched ’The Prom’ on Netflix.  Man, do I miss the theater.  I was an emotional mess for some reason.  I think my husband …

12/10/20 Eff Diabetes

How the eff do I go from 175 when I wake up to 190 at 11 am? I’m so fed up and done with diabetes. This sucks. I was so fed up this morning with these numbers. I’ve been trying to eat better and drink lots of liquid and this happens. The funny thing is …

12/9/20 – Dreams, chicken, and cheesecake.

I often have dreams as soon as I fall asleep. I always go to bed before my husband; although I try to stay awake to say goodnight to him, I often don’t make it. I dreamt that someone was trying to get into our apartment while we were sitting there watching tv. I woke up …

12/8/20 Walking, deli sandwiches, and pork roast!

Today was a much better day than yesterday. Except, I did not sleep as well last night as I would have liked to. I woke up with a bit of a backache, but that is not unusual. Oh, and I have occasional shooting pains in my sides. Damn, I’m so dramatic. I think I’m fine. …

12/7/20 – I want to hide.

I told you all that I would write a post every day, and dammit, I’m going to do it. You all need to see the good, the bad, and the ugly. I had a cocktail at 3:45 pm today. I didn’t drink alone; I’m not that sad. I’ve been kind of a mess, as you …

Saturday check-in, this year has changed us.

My stomach is making noises like it’s warming up to be a member of a symphony orchestra. It’s a direct result of an inexpensive blend of red wine, ribs, cookies, ice cream, a cauliflower casserole, and finally, some delicious champagne we had last night. We had a friend who lives on the property over for …

Low Carb Turkey Tacos

Who doesn’t love a good taco? I mean, I live in Los Angeles, where every Tuesday is Taco Tuesday. There are two things I’ve learned about people in Los Angeles, they love their taco Tuesday and weekend brunch is a sport. If I had realized this earlier in life, I would have just skipped everything …
