I am evaluating my motives this month and getting them firmed up in my mind and heart. It is making a huge difference for me, knowing why I am doing what I am doing. How about you? Commitment to the journey is greatly helped by a constant flow of understanding the reasons behind the steps taken.

Yes, since I have this condition I read where so many people are limited to what they can eat. I know that I'm not alone. My friend made chicken kabobs for the 4th and she didn't put any marinade on mine but then her husband piled them all on the same plate! I was OK but that would been enough to make some people sick because they touched the ones with marinade on. It isn't too bad here, around 80 but there is an air going. The weather report said the humidity will come back tomorrow. I've just been doing things around here today because I don't get much done during the week.

Oh my goodness, she sounds like a treat. I hope she doesn't have kids anytime soon, she needs to mature some first! My stomach is OK, I've been babying it for a while and just sticking with meats and green beans. I think it was too many dates that caused the flair. Between the fiber and the sugar content I guess it was too much. I ate some before & was fine so I guess I overdid it. I get so tired of eating the same bland food, though. I was looking at squeeze baby food today because someone on the support group for my condition wrote that she took some along when she went backpacking. I thought this is what I'm reduced to, eating baby food! LOL But my husband is going to want to go away for a few days when he gets home so I need to be prepared with what I will take along. I'm glad to be alive & kicking so I try to make the best of it.

Hi, Cathy. I had a very nice 4th of July. I didn't have the picnic here because it was very windy so we went to my friend's house. She has a nice finished garage and that worked perfectly. It was cool, too, didn't feel like the 4th of July. I didn't see the fireworks. By the time I got home I didn't feel like going anywhere and my dog gets so upset, too I decided to stay home with her. She pants and walks around, she doesn't know what to do. I didn't realize it was your son's wedding that you were going to. I thought he was only getting married next year. Wow, your future daughter-in-law does sound like she hasn't been very nice and you have been very generous with them! I hope things go as well as can be expected. I'll be thinking of you! I'm not sure what I'll do this weekend. It's airy again so I probably won't sit by the pool. I haven't been in much at all this summer. I wish it would get hot and stay that way. I don't have your hormone issues so I still like it hot. :-) Maybe some day that will change. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Lana

Hi, Cathy. I'm just hanging out here this week. With my husband being away I didn't plan a vacation. We always have a picnic with friends on the 4th of July and I'm going to have that again this year. My son will be going on vacation with his girlfriend's family in a couple of weeks so he'll be getting a vacation. I might go to the beach with a friend at the end of July, I haven't decided yet. She will be there and she wants me to come down. My son works as a life guard. This is his second year. He really likes it. They can pick which days they want to work and he doesn't start until almost noon so he can go to the gym before work. That is perfect for him. Enjoy the rest of the weekend! Lana
