So I'm in this class at the YMCA, named above. Last night we had a briefing by a dietician. OH, I'd heard it all before but hey, if it works. She pretty much described the Sonoma or Mediterranean diet. Eat more protein, fruits and veggies. So today is day one all over again.
Oh, and she also says, track your food. DUH! I hate doing that but there are only 6 more weeks of this and so I can do this. And exercise and more exercise. Yes, I can.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Well I'm fixing to be tough because I have some stressors that are hard to deal with. My MIL is near death and my son lost his job again. It is just too much for me to bear so I am setting some goals I can deal with.
First, I need to resurrect my business. I've been trying to retire and quilt but that doesn't pay the bills and with my son unemployed again, we will have to help out. So I need another good year under my belt and I need some good clients. I know what to do and I am spending time revamping my adverts and updating my online presence.
Secondly, I'm not giving up quilting, just putting it on the back burner somewhat. You know, pushing that fabric through the machine is sew relaxing when you are an accomplished sewer. However, I am going to spend some time getting more organized in my sewing room, taking stock of the projects I have in the works, and finishing things up instead of starting new things. I had the idea to get those large storage bags from the grocery and put a UFO in each bag, date it and list what needs to be done with it. That will take me sometime but I WILL do it. ANd it will be fun to see what I need to do. We stopped at the dollar store yesterday but they didn't have the extra large Ziploc bags and I came home with the gallon size which I knew wasn't big enough. For smaller projects yes, but not the big ones. So I"ll have to go to the real grocery to get those.
But first I need to resurrect my business and that is top priority. I can do this! I want to thank all of my spark friends for being there when I need them. And I sew need for someone to listen to my woes right now. Crying is good but I also need to smile. But I really feel like this
Have a good day and think of me!

Its after 8:00 p.m. and we just left the nursing home. It doesn't look good and it can't be long. At least we hope and pray that the Lord takes her home to be with the rest of her family. We have been away for 5 days and got back at 4:00 p.m. The nurse called at 5:00 and said that she hadn't eaten all day, was very unresponsive, wouldn't wear her teeth or her glasses. She wanted to run some tests and/or take her to the ER. We said no to the ER and yes to the tests. However, when we got there, she looked so sad, I called her friend from our church who is an RN and she came right over. They came in to take blood and put in a catheter and Char, the RN said no. What good would it do to put her through that? And we agreed. We are ready for her to take that last trip. It is difficult but part of life. Please pray for our family and for the Lord to do his will. Thank you for our blessings. She has had a good long life and needs to be at peace.
