Still can blog and log

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Hi to all you wonderful Sparkies!

I still have the flu, but I can still blog and log. I logged in my food, and have counted 15 minutes a day of walking.

My bedroom is upstairs, and I have to go down and back up for meals.

I also am JOGGING back and forth to the bathroom.........thankfully in time.....and that counts as steps, too, right?

I'm still eating the ginger chicken soup, which gives relief. When I'm feeling better, I will try to post the recipe for you all.

In the meantime, keep up the good work. I'll catch up!

    Sorry to hear you got the Flu. Hope its over soon. NOT fun! I hope the Ginger Chircken soup helps you get over it quicker! I know Ginger does settle the stomach. I would love to try the Ginger soup, but I sure would not want to try something new when I am sick. Get well soon. When your up to it post it. susana

    Drink lots and lots and LOTS of fluids to help your system kick this bug . . . of course, the down side is that will add a little more to the exercise. Take good care of yourself and get better very soon!

Have to take a break

Monday, May 09, 2011

I am in Time Out. I put myself there.

Both DH and I are down with flu.

I got up long enough to make some chicken ginger soup with mint, rice noodles and basil. That should make us feel much better.

Hope you all are out there having a wonderful time today!

Mother's Day

Sunday, May 08, 2011

Today is OUR big day. It is Mother's Day.

I recall all those cute little crayon drawn cards, the flowers picked from my and the neighbor's yards, and the little cherub face all aglow shouting "HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY, MOMMY!"

I was, for the most part, a single Mom. That ain't all bad, let me tell ya!

There was no one to argue with me about the values I wanted my daughter to have.

There was no one to stand up for me when my daughter thought I was totally stupid.

There was no one to argue when she and I decided pop corn was a good idea for dinner.

There was no one to stand by me when I told her she had talked on the phone long enough, and it was time to hang up.

There was no one but us who decided to go to movies, taking turns as to who got to choose the movie.

There was no one else to pay for the tickets and snacks at the movie.

There was no one to stop us from getting in the car spontaneously and driving to Lake Tahoe for the weekend.

There was no one else to pick up the tab for our weekend at Tahoe.

I had such fun teaching her to dance, teaching her how to have good penmanship, and how to tie her shoes.

We went to the zoo and rode the carousel together. We fed ducks together. We planted gardens together.

We shopped together, and for a long time, she liked what I liked for her. That all changed, and I saved a bundle of money!

We went out to dinner, and really let out waiter have it when he not only did not greet her, but didn't give her water or a menu. After all, she WAS there, and deserved acknowledgement too.

We had a great time when we went to the dinner theatre and then to the Rock and Roll show after.

We would drag ourselves through garden centers, played minature golf, and went berry picking. We had our faces painted at the fair, and rode the rides together.

We made sand castles at the beach, and body surfed in Hawaii for her 13th birthday.

We studied Algebra together, and talked about various books we had each read. We played board games, cards and got pretty darned good at Scrabble. We still play it, albeit online these years.

We have traveled together, having wonderful times, and have been there for each other during times that were hard. We have laughed and cried together.

These are only a very few things that come to mind today.

These are treasures in my heart.

These are times when I look back, am happy that there was no one to interfere!

Happy Mother Memories to you. May your memories bring you sunshine, smiles and a few tears of times gone by.
