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!

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…

Progress! (and yet another commitment)

Well, welcome back, everyone! Yeah, it looks like after enjoying the freedom to gasp and wheeze without a mask at the gym, we're gonna have to go back to those hated cloth diapers indoors for a while longer. So if you haven't yet been vaccinated, this might be a good time to do it, so … Continue reading Progress! (and yet another commitment)

Bookworm snacks and Kathy Bates, not necessarily in that order

Hey everyone, welcome back! The weight's up a schoche: 204.8 and even though I'd prefer it was going the other direction, I'm okay with it. But why? Is it possible that the weight loss doesn't means as much to me anymore? Is it possible that I'm just as happy to maintain as to lose? I … Continue reading Bookworm snacks and Kathy Bates, not necessarily in that order

After the week I’ve had, I’m just happy it’s not up even more!

Yeah, my weight's up again this week -- 203.0 -- which is almost as much of a gain as last week's was a loss! Still, given the week I've had, I'm just happy it's not even higher. Let me summarize: Anniversary - as I mentioned last week, Mr. 50by60 and I celebrated our wedding anniversary. … Continue reading After the week I’ve had, I’m just happy it’s not up even more!

Spambots need love, too! (an unofficial non-weigh-in pre-Christmas post!)

Hey everyone! As you know, I'm still on my Official Holiday Blogging/Dieting Break, so no official weigh-in or post till next week. However, just wanted to take a few minutes to say THANKS to all of you for your moral (if not financial) support over the past year.

Who cares if it’s still 2020? It’s PUMPKIN SPICE TIME, y’all!

Sorry to it's report it's still (checks watch) 2020, but in spite of the fact that yeah, it's STILL 2020 (c'mon, Father Time, what ARE you thinking??), that doesn't negate the fact that everyone's favorite time of year is here, and that time, of course, is PUMPKIN SPICE TIME YAYYY!!

What’s up, WordPress? Back for another banger!

Good morning, everyone! For those who are a little puzzled about the title, I've been watching a LOT of the adorable "Twinsthenewtrend" videos on YouTube this week, and that's how they start out every video. Check 'em out! Fair warning, though, start one, and you'll look up and wonder where that hour and a half … Continue reading What’s up, WordPress? Back for another banger!
