Pajama Lazy….

I don’t know if I am in a funk or that I am just getting old and lazy. Whenever I am home I stay in my pajamas. I work 2 evenings and the rest are days. I get out of bed and stay in my pajamas till time to get ready for work. Whenever I get home from work the pajamas go on even if it’s 2 in the afternoon. I never used to be this way. I have yet to go to Walmart in my pajamas…..so I guess that is something.

I really don’t go anywhere and I have no company. I have no incentive to not be lazy. I am even thinking of cutting a hole in the middle of a flat sheet and just wearing that. I can’t go naked because well I find that gross. The last thing I want to see is my big ole belly. You also know if I was naked that is for sure when someone would drop by!

I think maybe I need to find something to do. I need to volunteer. I need something to force me to NOT be pajama lazy! There has to be more to life than living in pajamas!

Till next post!



18 Years Ago Today ….

Mom and me

I miss you Mom. I love you Mom.

On Being 50….

Today is the day I turn the big 50. My first thought was hmmmm I have less years to live than what I have lived. That is unless I live to be 100. With my family health record I do not see that happening. I made it 50 years some people don’t even get that.

It is weird to be old enough to see things come and go now. Things that seem to have went in my life time: the rotary phone(home phones in general seem to be disappearing), cabooses, tv’s that did not have remotes, just dropping by for a visit on the off-chance someone would be home, not being connected 24/7 to the world. I am sure there are many others, but I am old now and can’t remember at the moment.

Things that have come in my lifetime: home computer, cell phones, video games, cable tv, 24 hour tv and radio, 24 hour stores, non-verbal communication over talking, ie, texting. Lot’s of scary stuff that you hear about 24/7 because we are connected 24/7.

When I turned 49 I made a year goal of getting down to 180 lbs and looking like Zac Effron. I did not make it. I honestly do not know what I weigh right now because I haven’t weighed. I may be somewhere around 215-220 lbs. I haven’t gained it all back and am working on getting back on track. I have not made a year goal this time. Lesson learned…..I SUCK at reaching goals!

So I am ready to see what these later years will bring. How will I change? How will the world change? What kind of person will I have become when I go back to the ground?

Life is an adventure.

Till next post.


Hopping Around….

It’s been 2 months since I hopped off my vegan diet. I hopped out of the gym a couple of weeks ago. So how is that working out I bet you’re wondering. Well…… I have gained about 15-20 lbs back. I have been eating sweets and processed foods like crazy. I have heart burn again. I am getting headaches. My clothes are getting REALLY tight. In other words it’s going smashing!

So I have decided it’s time to hop back on the healthy eating bandwagon. Here we go again. I will have to fight my addictions and struggle with the weight again. At least I am catching it before I gained everything back and then some. I went off the Vegan diet because I thought I wasn’t feeling well and maybe I needed something from meat. I don’t. I feel worse just like I used to 2.5 years ago. I am not saying I will be vegan, but 90 percent of the time I am going to try.

Hopping to another subject. For Christmas I got my little Santa blow-mold. I really like the blow-molds. I plan on having one for each Holiday. That will be my main decoration. Look what I found for Easter!


Isn’t it just so stinking cute! It’s my birthday present to me. Fun times are a hoppin at the iamdonewiththat household!

I am getting ready to do some painting and re-arranging in the house. I will take pictures on do posts on my projects.

Till next post.



Today would have been my Mom’s 88th birthday. It has been 18 years since she passed. I am getting ready to turn 50 and I still miss her like I was 5.

Mom and me

You are never too old to miss your Mom.

Happy birthday Mom!



I have this tendency to sabotage myself. My latest sabotage……my weight loss. Next month is the end of my year-long quest to get my Zac back. I wanted to weigh 180 lbs by my 50th birthday on March 13th. I don’t think that is going to happen now.

I had been doing so good. I had gotten down to 198 lbs. That was a 34 lb loss. Then I sabotaged myself. I went off my Vegan diet. I had a craving for eggs, cottage cheese, and yogurt. So I bought them and it has been all down hill since. I have gained 11 lbs. I have to lose 27 lbs in a month now. I am looking at the bright side to try to keep myself from sabotaging even worse. I have lost 25 lbs and at one point had lost 34 lbs. That is something to be proud of.

I am trying to reign in this eating of mine. When I was Vegan I had all kinds of self-control. Now that has went out the window. So I must have this inner talk with my sabotaging self to stop it. It is a really interesting conversation you should pop in and listen to it sometime. On second thought there is enough personalities in my head that there is no more room. Just take my word for it……interesting conversation.

On that note I will leave with a selfie because I am THAT vain. Fantastic glasses, glam lips, and a sabotaging conversation. FABULOUS!


Till next post!



Skirting the issue…

I thought I would show my skirt and a shirt that I got on clearance. This is the skirt my sister got for me. I have to admit it is comfortable and really quite warm. The shirt I got because it has that sort of pirate look with the lace up front.



I just noticed the kindle is covering the lace up front. Someday I will have to get a phone that takes good pictures. So the is my look of the day I guess. I want to try some other skirts and tops just to mix things up. Queer Fashion is what I call it. I am going to try the shirt with jeans next. Any comments or questions about my skirting the issue leave down below.

Till next post.
