Yikes! Ike!

Looks like we'll be getting some of the hurricane this weekend here in Houston. I will not evacuate! I repeat, I will not evacuate. I went through the nightmare of Rita a few years ago and that feeling never leaves you. I was stuck in traffic for 26 hours trying to get to a little place that is only 65 miles from my house! No bathrooms, no stores open. I had my cats, dogs, son in his car and we all barely made it to our destination on gas fumes and grapes.

I don't care what they say, I'll take my chances with the wind and rain and I'm "hunkerin' down" in H-town!!

Hungry, Hungry Hormones

That's the only thing I can use to explain the pathetic "lifestyle" I've been living these last few weeks. I am 51, after all. And, I think the hormone monster is having it's way with me! Since last month I didn't have a, you know, monthly thing, maybe my female parts are about to go on hiatus.

Okay, so that may not be a good enough excuse, but that's mine and I'm sticking to it. Otherwise, I'd have to just say I have no control over what I am putting in my mouth. I've even been overeating healthy stuff. In the past I would overeat on junk. Now I crave healthy foods but I eat too much of them. Whole grain this, sugar free that. It's still fattening when you eat too much of something. Good grief. I need help!

And exercise?! What the freak is my problem. I love to ride my bike but the thought of getting on it just makes me tired. I've got to get a grip. I wish the cooler temps would hurry and get here. I am sick of all this sticky, hot, humid air. We have had less humidity in Houston for the last day or two and it has made me feel soooo much better. Come on weather maker...please can we have some cool?!!
