Dreams, prayers, raccoons, and Andrew Lloyd Weber, all on the same blog just for you!

Are we ... awake? So I had this weird dream (and yeah, I'm going to make you read about it!). I was in this big hall where people were singing what sounded more or less like hymns, happy ones, and lots of children running around, so it was probably my semi-annual visit to Heaven for … Continue reading Dreams, prayers, raccoons, and Andrew Lloyd Weber, all on the same blog just for you!

This was unexpected, sorta like a rabbit in the front yard!

Welp, I was all set to apologize for yet another weight gain, but my scales surprised me this morning! 207.4 Actually down a bit since last week, so that was a pleasant surprise. Sorta like the rabbit that popped up in our front yard this past week! No, no, this one's not quite as bad … Continue reading This was unexpected, sorta like a rabbit in the front yard!

To boldly go where no weight loss blog has gone before!

Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don't forget your booties 'cause it's cooooold out there today!! Nope, no worries, your calendar is correct (assuming it says October 13th)! However, I'm taking yet another break, so I thought I'd just mess with your head a little! However, it is definitely cold out there today!

Don’t worry, blog’s not broken, even though I keep taking breaks!

Yeah, I had to take a break last week, due to a sad situation in the 50by60 family -- my younger brother, Michael, passed away from COVID-19. It was unexpected, and I took a trip back home to visit my parents and sister for a few days. Three Boomer siblings in the '60s If you're … Continue reading Don’t worry, blog’s not broken, even though I keep taking breaks!

My brain is not cooperating!

Well, hey, everyone! I'm sorry to say my weight has gone up yet again this week, a whopping 209.0 and to be honest, I'm kinda wondering if my brain is just not processing the orders I'm giving it correctly. I mean, several times in the past few weeks, I've told it that I want to … Continue reading My brain is not cooperating!

Pumpkin spice time again!?

Hey, everyone! First, the weight - it's up a tad: 206.2 but I'm actually okay with that, as it was MUCH higher earlier in the week. Now that the weather is finally cooling down a bit so's we're not actually melting every time we set foot out the front door, and it's actually possible to … Continue reading Pumpkin spice time again!?

20 years already? Sigh …

Wow, has it really been 20 years since September 11, 2001, that beautiful morning when the sky was blue and the sun was shining and the autumn leaves were just starting to turn ... and four planes were hijacked? Sometimes it seems like just yesterday ... sometimes it seems like a lifetime ago. Anyway, given … Continue reading 20 years already? Sigh …

Cats are driving me crazy, and it’s a short trip!

Well, howdy, pardners! First of all, let me give you the EXCELLENT news that Pumpkin Spice, who last week we were convinced was lost forever, decided to pop back into existence from that rip in the time/space portal she'd disappeared into the previous week! So we're happy about that! Only she had a humungous horrible … Continue reading Cats are driving me crazy, and it’s a short trip!

Pumpkin Spice, you were (and hopefully still are!) very nice; and no, Diet Coke is NOT addictive, at least for me!

Well, it's been a rather sad week in the 50by60 household, as one of our little cat pals, Pumpkin (full name: Pumpkin Spice) hasn't been seen since last Friday. Given the nature of how things work, we are hoping for the best but prepared for the worst. It is theoretically possible she is out on … Continue reading Pumpkin Spice, you were (and hopefully still are!) very nice; and no, Diet Coke is NOT addictive, at least for me!

I know I say this every week, but…

Hey, everyone! I know I say this every week, but I really do have to keep this short 'n sweet (like me, hee hee)! Reason being I have a doctor's appointment this morning, so I don't wanna get all caught up in the adrenaline of writing a killer blog post and wind up being late … Continue reading I know I say this every week, but…
