Walking, Flailing Arms and Tons of Book Deals

Friends on the Walk

Mike and I are on a big walking kick now – doing the old 10,000 steps (about 5 miles). I have to admit I have a lot more energy during the day now, so we must be doing something right.

And Gordon has a new friend! A lady in one of the neighborhoods we trot through has a big fake goldendoodle that she dresses up for holidays. This was during the summer — and there’s my baby trying to make time with her. He always did have a soft spot for chicks in water wings.

Call Me Spazzy Arms

Quick question… anyone have spazzy arms? This might not be a sign of getting older because I’ve always been sort of a one-woman tornado of destruction, but I swear… I’ll turn sometimes now and my arms will drag behind me and plow into something sitting on a table. And I don’t mean knock over something. I mean send something flying. Like it’s a tennis ball and my arm is the racket. I seem to catch the tops of glasses a lot too. It’s like my arms have a life of their own and they are taking themselves for a spin! Please tell me other people out there are slowly turning into flailing octopi!

    LOL…just for making me smile, I will share with you. I have to order my beverages in a cup with a lid and a straw at restaurants now, otherwise I will knock them over. Every single time. And when I do order that way, my dinner companions tell the story at the same time. They think it’s funny, I don’t. One day I will forget, just so I can see how high they jump when I do knock it over. (I use a lid and a straw at home too)

        Join the club. I do that, too. In fact, when anyone else spills a cup, they always say things like, “You, too.” They think it’s funny, but I don’t. It’s nice to know that I am not the only one!

    • Carol Price

      Hope you see a Dr. to make sure it us noir the beginning symptom of something that needs meds now . I have muscle damage and my arms jerk if resting them. Potassium too low for long periods caused this.


  2. Lisa

  3. Tex

    I absolutely love your dog and can so relate. I have a chipoo and he would be chatting up the missy.


  4. Lisa

    I am 55 years old and while I don’t have spazzy arms I do seem to be dropping things more now. Some days it is like I drop the same thing a couple of times. I also had to go to the ER last night because of a muscle spasm in my inner thigh. This was a cramp like no other. I’ve had them before and doc can’t find anything wrong. It’s like my body is paying me back for something I did when I was young, lol.


    • Jan B

      I know those cramps, so painful! Try taking magnesium. I am 61 and my body has a problem retaining d3, potassium and magnesium.
