28 Feb 2024 6 minute read 0 comments 7th Decade Redhead

If you have been following this blog and have read some of my past posts, you will probably remember me writing about the sad tragedy our family suffered on New Year's Eve Day. My husband's niece passed away unexpectedly from an undiagnosed, one in t...

It's the Little Things (They can be the biggest)

23 Feb 2024 4 minute read 0 comments 7th Decade Redhead

Earlier this week, I published a post about life after losing a lot of weight. It was not a 'hearts and flowers' type of post. It was mainly, a "this shit is still hard, and I don't like it" post. I was hoping to provide a dose of reality to prepare...

One Year Later (Thoughts on my diet-versary)

20 Feb 2024 7 minute read 2 comments 7th Decade Redhead

One year ago today, I looked at a picture of myself on my phone, that my husband had taken of me, his mom, and my sister-in-law, and mentally said to myself: "enough of this shit... you HAVE to lose weight..."  I have no idea where the time went and...

The Yankee Goes Lonestar (Best damn decision I ever made)

17 Feb 2024 6 minute read 0 comments 7th Decade Redhead

In the spring of 1993, my husband left his then current job to take another job 1,850 miles away. At the time he was working for a minicomputer company in Massachusetts. His leaving for another job was probably a good decision since the company he wo...

Winter... (It's not just weather)

Nothern hemisphere life at this time of year can be challenging. Even though I do not live in snow-covered climes, winter for me is hard. Snow makes everything look beautiful, clean and fresh. In the south, it's overcast, gray and dull. The trees are...

If you follow this blog, you may have noticed that I went 'dark' for a week or so. My husband and I went on a planned road trip to visit my daughter and her boyfriend (they cohabitate, and yes, I'm fine with it). She had recently been made a partner...

The thumbnail photo above was one my husband took of me back in 2014. I am about to attempt my first, and only, to this day, officially timed running event. It was a Color Me Rad 5K race in Houston, Texas. My friends and work colleagues talked (nagge...

Today (The Family Compound... yeah, it's a thing....)

A few days ago, I was sitting here in my jammies and fuzzy socks, a usual occurrence for a cold (14F) morning in Texas. We don't get these cold snaps very often. Our town is not prepared to deal with snow and ice, so when we get them, we are told to...

Hey! That's My Baggage..... (No, it's mine!)

I was talking to my sister the other day, and she was reminiscing about our sibling therapy sessions last summer. The extraordinarily rainy weather last summer gave us a lot of time to sit around and talk. Many revelations came to light. There were t...

"I wish I could more like you. You always walk with such confidence..."   Huh?.... This was something that was spoken to me about 15 years ago. I never really forgot it. It Easter Sunday at a church service, back in the day when our family were regul...
