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 …

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 …

Thanksgiving 2020

Thanksgiving was a little different this year for most of us. Instead of going out, we stayed at home; we had one neighbor who lives in the building join us. We knew she was safe, and we consider her in our pod. I thought we were going to order food, but it ended up that …

November 4, 2020 – Post Election

It’s been a challenge of a day. I’ve been tired, lazy, and my sugar has been high. I’m not surprised; I ate cookies and ice cream last night. The election has got everyone on edge. We have never had an election here in the US where people are boarding up businesses for fear of violence. …

October 3, 2020

We went to San Diego yesterday for my sister-in-laws birthday celebration. There is a fantastic restaurant called Puesto that they wanted to go to. Their tacos are incredible, and I was so impressed that they had a lettuce wrap option for the taco’s so I could still eat right. The only thing that sucked was …

September 19-20 – Cheat Day

Saturday is supposed to be cheat day, and boy, did I cheat! I thought I’d be good and wait until 3:30 pm to eat. We were ordering tacos from this place in LA called Kraken Tacos. I dreamt about these taco’s all week; they are a real treat. They were supposed to arrive at 3:30 …

September 18, 2020 – RBG and Earthquakes

I started this post yesterday, on the 18th and then a bunch of things started happening, RBG passed away, and then we had an earthquake. The earth was quaking with sadness. You all, it was the weirdest thing. I was on the phone with a great friend who lives in Burbank; he said; we’re having …

September 17, 2020 – Lettuce eat sandwiches.

lunch I love sandwiches, the kind with lots of meat, just like I used to get at the deli when I lived on Long Island. The thing about sandwiches is that they have bread, duh. Many places say that they do lettuce wraps, but none like Mike’s Deli here in Los Angeles. It’s the only …

September 16, 2020 – Chuck roast and cauliflower risotto.

lunch I didn’t eat until 2 pm again today. I’m really liking this way of eating. I feel better when I eat this way. One of these days i’ll have to weigh myself and see if this is making a big difference. I had the left over chicken lasagna from the other day and veggies …

September 15, 2020

Nightmare JVJ had a nightmare last night. All of a sudden, I heard him screaming, and I had to wake him up. The strange thing is that he dreamed of losing a passport, and he never loses anything. I’m the ’loser’ of the family; if my head weren’t attached, I’d be asking where it was. …
