Gradituesday - K


I have several friends out here whose real or blogging name is a K name. I am grateful for them. Several of these nice folks write for Fantasy Friday too. I’m really grateful for them and their help.

Keys – Mollie has recently reminded me of how important keys are, car keys, house keys, keys to get in at work, sometimes even keys to a friends home – all these give you freedom, power and a sense that you are trusted.

Kindness – there is not enough of this in the world so I try to pay attention when I see it. I work with 11 and 12 year olds. They are not always kind. But when I see them being kind to each other I let them know what that means to me and how mature it makes them appear. I work hard to be kind to other, I don’t always make it, but I really try.

Kink – Oh boy this is one of my favorites!! I have lived with out kink in my life. It’s doable. But boy life is more fun and exciting with a little kink thrown in.

– love my own, love the ones I teach.

Kitchen – I am grateful we have one and very, very grateful that I don’t spend much time there.

Krispy Kreme – I don’t think there is a more delicious food on this planets that a fresh, hot krispy kreme donut.

Kittens – I really do love kitten, even when they become cats. I really want another kitten but I think it’s a choice between a new kitten or my old husband. I think I’ll keep Nick.

Kiss – Remember you first kiss? That was so exciting, making out in high school, maybe college. Remember when you first started dating the one you love? I bet there was a lot of kissing then. I still love kissing. I need to put that on my ‘do more often’ list.


I haven’t got much to complain about with the diet. After my weekend to see my fellow triplets I was worried about a gain but I was actually down just a tiny bit from the week before. And that was with only getting to the gym 2 days instead of five.

Then this past weekend was an eat-fest with all the family members to eat out with. But I can get to the gym much more often this week and I will watch my snacking while I’m home. I think that seeing my older relatives makes me more determined to hit the gym as often as I can.

After helping my parents as they got older I know the truth of the statement “Old age ain’t for sissies!” I know/hope that some day I will be old. Things are going to go wrong in my body eventually but when I get there I want to be at a decent weight, I want my bones as strong as possible. I want to be flexible. I want my heart strong and the thing is – I can’t wait until the last minute to start doing all these things! I am in much better shape than I was three years ago. I still don’t eat completely healthy but I’m better.

These are the years when I should be working to get myself in the best shape I can. I hate to see old people in rest homes denied salt and sweets for medical reasons. Folks let me tell you if I get to that point – mid-eighties, confined to a nursing home – they better give me anything I want to eat. Fried foods and starches! I want as much junk food as you can bring me, chocolate, cookies, cake, ice cream, pork rinds, cheese cake, cheetos – shoot I might even take up smoking!! But until then, I’ll be good. I'll watch what I eat and keep up the exercise but at least this way I have something to look forward to!!

Do they allow spanking in the old folks home? :-)

Congrats on the health you've achieved!

Although I'm not happy with my weight yet, I was thrilled to find out that my resting pulse is under 50!! Who would've thunk? The exercise is definately improving my health; I used to have a resting pulse over 80

Great list. I too would love a kitten, but not really an option for us right now.

Your words on being in a retirement home made me smile...I can just imagine you remonstrating with the cooks!!

love and hugs xxx

A great reminder on the joys of kissing. And whatever happened to hickeys?

Lovely list PK, LOL about the kitchen.

I can imagine if you were in a nursing home and you didn't get what you wanted to eat you would get all other other residents to protest until you got what you wanted.

I have noticed you can find junk food for every letter?

Kindness,kink and Krispy Kreme..that about says it all..
Your husband is very funny!!

It they don't allow spanking then I'm not going!

I am impressed with your heart rate. Mine is over 80 resting. Could be the diet pills I guess.

I really do think when food becomes the only thing you have to look forward to it should be great!!

Florida Dom,
I agree. Kissing (and hickeys) seems to become a thing of the past once folks get married. It shouldn't be that way.

What is the point of a healthy diet at that stage of live? So yeah, they better give me what I want! LOL!

You know me well, and that sounds like a challenge!

Yep those are three good ones. As for my husband, he does have his moments.
