I have this thing, this back thing that acts up when I clean. Specifically, the bathroom. I stupidly cleaned two bathrooms within a couple of days and now my back is knotted up and not happy at all. Fun times. Nice reminder of why I usually space out the cleaning of the bathrooms.
Those of us that suffer from cold sores have a love/hate relationship with having to wear a mask. Love the concealment/hate the bacteria transfer.
Sunday we decided to stop for breakfast at a local donut shop to give the small business our support. Being diabetic, this is not something I do often. I think it has likely been almost 10 years since my last donut...maybe had one in Japan to try their take on donuts. So, with the case … Continue reading A Cheat Day

Kicking it off with this: When clearing out a shelf in the small pantry I came across a little piece of happiness that I thought I had seen the last of from Italy.

I will return to this blog at some point, maybe soon, maybe a bit down the road. For now, I am mourning the … Continue reading Stumbling
Since there won't be as much travel or food type posts in the foreseeable future, I'm going to try more quick thoughts or updates which will also compensate for me not posting on Facebook. Today, we are flying out to Louisiana to pick up the truck we bought in December that is finally finished and … Continue reading Content Change
Today I broke below the weight I was stuck at for most of June. I plateau hard when I'm losing weight, every 5 pounds or so I get stuck. Pushed through the latest barrier today!
