Let’s Talk About Fitbit Again

Well, I have decided to write about the Fitbit again.  Why?  The Fitbit may be a little more complex and mysterious than the instructions tell us all. When I bought my Fitbit, it already had a little battery charge. After my Grandson plugged it into the electric socket to get more charge, it charged in what seemed like seconds.   I thought that was pretty cool at the time because most batteried things take a while to charge. My Fitbit takes my pulse, counts my steps, keeps the time, lets me see text messages scroll across quickly and tells me how far I have walked.  All of that is just great...

Prayer, Purpose, Faith and the Widow

For as far back as I can remember God has made His presence known to me.  As a very small child, I remember talking to Him and feeling the warmth of His touch. My true heartfelt belief is that we are all born into this world remembering God because we have just come from His loving arms uninhibited, innocence, and still feel His lingering, loving, and protective care which stays with us.  Small children are not worried about what others think which enables them to speak openly about God. I had the absolute privilege and God-given gift to get to teach a Sunday School class for two and...

Fitbit and Me, DIY Widow’s Blog

While out shopping with my Daughter-in-law and Grandson a few days ago, a conversation came up about getting fit.  Having always been a person who likes to workout, I have gotten lax on doing just that. Since I have started sharing blogs and chapters of the book I am writing on this website, my exercise routine has suffered some, make that close to “nil”.  I seem to get lost in writing and learning about how this website works then realize I have been sitting in front of the computer for hours.  Seems the only things getting exercise are my fingers. Anyway, the discussion got...

Medicare Paperwork, DIY Widow

My  Doctor’s office called then told me they needed me to make an appointment to fill out some paperwork for Medicare. Since it had been over a year since having been to the Doctor, I decided to “kill two birds with one stone”, (which is only a saying, I do not kill birds) and made the appointment. After arriving at the Doctors office and after waiting a short time in the waiting room, my name was called to go back to a private room.  On the way, the young lady who was escorting me stopped at the “Lying Weight” scale to get my weight.  I told her, “I...

Have I Lost My Memory, DIY Widow

Sometimes as we get older we forget the stages that our adult children went through as they were growing up.  I think you could compare forgetting those stages to the pain of childbirth which is something that women choose to forget or there would not be the decision to have more children. Something I do remember is traveling in a car with our child back in the day when there were no car seats, booster seats, and seatbelts.  I am not knocking those inventions because they are very needed for safety and prevent deaths but just remembering when we didn’t have them. I own a Ford...
