This is an archived posting from my previous website “Chips Antidotal Wanderings” – a personal blog about family, creative moments, and pain management activities in my life. That blog was active from 2004-2011.

Diet Update: On my diet, I was stuck at 11 pounds down for almost 3 weeks. But I finally hit the 12 pound mark. Wahoo! Doing the happy dance and celebrating that I’m finally out of that rut. Now to keep those pounds moving downward. It hasn’t been very easy. I sure do like my food and changing habits is not a strong suite for me, that’s for sure. But every little bit helps and I’m feeling better about me. Especially that extra notch on the belt I was able to use this past week!

My Greg: Hubby’s foot is healing up okay, we think. At least he’s not in as much pain any more. It’s another two weeks before we go back for the next set of x-rays though. And that’s what will really show us if things are webbing back together or not. The hot tub seems a bit lonely without his company. I sure enjoyed our quiet moments and easy conversations we share there. Seems when we are elsewhere in the house, there’s always some other noise or activity that intrudes.

Creatively Speaking: On the artful side of things, my freebies are just about ready and I hope to get them loaded this weekend. Actually I had hoped to get that accomplished before now. But as is usually the case, life seemed to get in the way. At CHW we have some new challenges going on. Creative Views, an ongoing photography challenge starts this Friday. If you like to see the world through the camera lens, come on over and join us. Tomorrow we are starting our Alphabet Soup challenge. This is one that flexes our muse no matter what medium one likes to play with.  I managed a few more updates to ongoing notes I’m taking for a future book on creative ways to manage pain.  And I did up a new journal page too.  What have you been doing creatively these days?

I best get myself off this computer and into the shower if I hope to get to work on time today. I’ll catch you all later!
