My husband and I weigh in on Saturdays. I stayed the same in my weigh in on my BLC team. In fact I've been the same, 107, for the past 3 weeks. The day after weigh in I lost one pound. Now I weigh in and I'm 109, gained 3 pounds in two days.
What gives? I ate salads. Could it be the pot tart that I ate for evening snack?
Doesn't seem logical.
Mopping over that fact while writing out my team schedule, I get a call from my friend. Our friend, Marie, was just put in hospice. Her birthday is this coming Saturday the 12th. She'll be 102 years old. That is awesome. Still sad.
I'm worrying about 3 pounds and my friend is dying. I haven't seen her since her last birthday party, which was held here. I couldn't get out since I have my mom here. At least my mom got to meet her.
Marie has a daughter who has had Alzheimer for quite a while. She is in a nursing home and expected to die anytime.
Sometimes I get so frustrated with my mom, but if anything happened to her, I'd have such regrest that I didn't show more love, instead of nagging her to do her exercises so she'll have a better quality of life.
Sometimes you have to put life into perspective and see what is important.

Tried taking my own picture to put as profile since I got a new hair cut. I should have enhanced the picture to make it clear before I put it on. Duh! Seems like I've changed my profile pix 3 or 4 times, well, 3 times at least. No, I'm not vain, just not learned in the art of downloading decent pictures. Haven't seen this latest one on a thread, so who knows, I may change it again.

I received the family tree info my cousin was working on. He sent it all bound up and printed out sheets of the family tree charts. There are a couple differences between what he has and what a friend on a message board worked out for me. Now, who is correct. I think I found the place that the difference accured. I don't know if they each followed a different sibling or what. I also think one has an extra generation than my cousin has in his records.
If people back then had a couple children instead of 8 - 10, it would be easier making a family tree. lol
I guess it made life easier on the farms having more kids to help with the chores.

My newest hobby...making my family tree. It is a lot harder than I thought it'd be. I've got so many lines; Culps, Leighs, TenEycks. I'm stuck trying to find my next line in the Gallaway family.
I want to find stories about the family. Has any been in the Civil War, Revolutionary War, War of 1812, backyard scrimish between friends. Anythng besides dates.
I may branch out and find info on their siblings families instead of just doing my direct line-parent to child.
Anyone have any tips and tactics on how to find people, please let me know. I'm checking census records, some death records. Sometimes I only have half the info I need to request a record.
Isn't that a catch-22? You need info, but to get the info, you need info to request the info. Duh!
I've got a headache.

I forgot to blog yesterday. Need to make a list of everything I need to do.
I may have to cut back on some push up exercises. My wrists have been hurting. I've been doing the wall push ups, when called for any kind of push ups. Can't wear my wrist brace and do push ups either. lol
Big supper planned for tonight, of course, the day before weigh in. I'll have soup and some fruit, if I have the will power. DH is planning on a roast, mashed potatoes and biscuits.
I want to do the menu thing then special dinners can be planned for later. We never get around to making out menus. Use to, it was a great way to get rid of left overs and know just what to buy. Left overs get pushed to the back of the fridge and we end up buying extra.
We have 5-weeks until the end of our BLC#12 challenge and I'm a couple pounds above where I want to be. I'm not putting as much effort as I was doing the beginning of last year. Life styles change so it makes it hard to keep up with that kind of schedule.
