I ate my veggie!

Now some of you are probably laughing right now because I ate a veggie, but for someone who rarely touched one before a few weeks ago, this is a big thing. 

Now I don’t care for salads much. 

I ate a cucumber, a whole cucumber. I would rather eat my veggies like fruits. In my hand and munch on them. I had tomatoes last night.

So laugh if you must, just don’t tell me about it.

I know I have to start adding more veggies and fruits into my diet, but it is a start.


The Daily Post Prompt – Never Again!

The Daily Post Prompt – for prompt page click here!

Have you ever gone to a new place or tried a new experience and thought to yourself, “I’m never doing that again!” Tell us about it.


I was 21 years old and looked like I swallowed a basketball. Now obviously that isn’t possible, but I did have some help from my husband impregnating me. So yes I was 9 months pregnant.

I loved being pregnant most of the time and I tried not thinking about the birthing process. It was my first child so I really didn’t know what would happen anyhow.

So labor starts and lasts 36 hours. Talk about not fun, labor is as non-fun as you can get. The pain is tremendous. You begin screaming and cursing at the baby’s father with every name in the book. You swear you will never do that again! NEVER!!

Then you take that sweet little baby home and love blossoms, growing bigger and bigger and weeks later you realize that you would do that again. It feels as if none of that awful birthing business and recovery happened at all.

PS I had another 20 months later and then again 8 years later. BUT the third one was the absolutely last child I was having. I couldn’t forget the pain this time. I was done! NEVER  AGAIN!


I have been busy writing poems for my 5 day photo challenge.

Today was a busy day. 

At 1:10 PM I went to have my cat scan done. Now I will see my pulmonary doctor on the 8th of July. However, my PCP got the news already and I don’t know if it is good or bad, but the nodules haven’t grown, but I have a new one. Now I have to wait to the 8th to find out what that means. 

At 5:45 I went to the Chiropractor who did a re-evaluation and sees some improvement. Good news there.

My 6:30 PM reflexology appointment got canceled again. I really miss my feet being manipulated.

I have been starving all night long. My son says I am not eating enough. I start with dinner, but don’t eat much and then feel like I am starving all night and have to find something to eat several times before trying to sleep. He said that might be causing me to not sleep too. Since he is a certified personal trainer interested in nutrition he is most likely right. I can’t seem to get up in the morning since I am not going to sleep until 5 AM. He also said I am not getting enough water probably too. He is right. I get up so late I can’t drink like I was and then that could also be affecting it. He told me when I feel hungry after I have just eaten to drink a bottle of water. I have to reverse this. I was doing so well in the beginning.

For dinner I had around 8 pieces of shrimp, a couple of fries and a bisquit. I was stuffed then.

I am waiting for them to reschedule my therapy appointment. I have called twice. She said she will call me so don’t want to be a pain in the ass. They need to get that from the doctor.

Today is so hot and humid that I had trouble breathing due to my Asthma. I hate humidity for more than one reason.

Yesterday I started to lift a little weight. I have 2 lb weights and I did a set of 20 of 3 different arms. That was all I could do, but it was a start. And I did them again today. So 2 days in a row.

Doing the poems for that photo challenge delighted me. I wrote 5 Haikus. They are small, but a little difficult to write since they go by syllables. I am getting my inspiration to creatively write again. My other blog is growing too. So that adds to the amount of blogs I am subscribed to.


5 days, 5 photos. Day 1

The Rules: The challenge is – “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”. Thanks to HBHATNAGAR for doing this post and not nominating me. 🙂    I said I’d give it a try and here I am!

I’ve decided to forgo nominations this time. I’ve bothered people enough with nominations. So give it a try if you haven’t yet and want to. Heck give 2 tries if you want to.

In case you haven’t figured it out, I am in the girl in the bikini.


Girl in Bikini,

Bikini is all for show.

It does not get wet!

3 Days 3 Quotes – Day 1


I have been nominated again for 3 Quotes in 3 Days by Miss Lavendius from Bipolar Without Stigma.

So for quote one I choose: “In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”Robert Frost     It is the simplest quote and certainly true. Nothing but death will stop life from going on in some way.

Today I nominate the following three blogs:
1. Maxima
2. Joyce
3. Emma

I hope you accept my nomination! But you don’t have to! This is my 2nd time through!
