Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

F is for . . .

F is for Feeling Horrible!

I had planned on witty posts, scheduled ahead of time. I had all day Sunday to work on them. Did it happen? Noooooo. I've sprained my rotator cuff making sitting in my reading/blogging chair uncomfortable. I found this out on Friday. To add salt to the wound, I have an earache. Well, I haven't been to the doctor about that yet but I'm sure that is what they'll say. The fun part is I won't have a car. We're a two-car/three-driver family and one car will be at work and the other at school :-(

So, I have a smoothie recipe for you [with changes] and not much else. I am half done with tomorrow's post and I'm hoping that with medication I'll be able to get more finished. Yes, I'm a wimp.

Coconut Berry Smoothie  found here
vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free


½ cup frozen mixed berries [no blueberries]
¼ cup frozen mango chunks [1/2 banana]
½ cup 100% pomegranate juice
½ cup coconut milk
½ teaspoon flax or chia seeds (optional) [chia seeds]
Ice as needed depending on the desired consistency

[plus protein powder]


Blend in a Vitamix or blender until smooth.

A sprained rotator cuff sounds painful! I hope you feel better soon.

It's okay to be a wimp! I'm one too with stuff like that. Just no fun at all. Hope the meds kick in soon and have you feeling better!
