What's the title about?

I thought I'd explain where the title of my blog comes from. I was inspired by Angie of "In Repair's" use of a song lyric. I am a child of the 80s and the Go Gos are one of my favorite bands of all time. I also contend that they deserve to be in the pantheon of all time rock greats as one of the seminal all-female punk bands.

So, "stop spending all our precious time" comes from the Go Gos song "Turn to You". It kind of goes along with Catherine's post about skipping reunions, get togethers, etc.. because of our weight. I have been there for quite a while. I find myself skipping mundane things like going down into the basement to get a soda because it's too much effort. Really? This is just crazy. I don't want to waste a minute because life is too precious and way too finite.

I also wanted to say Welcome! to my 7 followers! I can't tell you how excited I was to see that there was someone out there. The band blog community has been such an inspiration during this process for me and I'm thrilled to be a part of it.

T minus 6 days until my appointment with the surgeon - Yeah!!


  1. You know what is funny about the going down the stairs to get a drink-my hubby will go for a 10k run or 2 hour bike ride but then refuse to go up the stairs to get the remote for the TV or bring up laundry. He's thin but if it isn't something that excites us, we tend to pass.

    Hope all goes well at the appointment.

  2. I've missed out on so much fun because of my weight. I won't try new things or put myself in certain social situations because of my weight. I hate that so much.
