I entered the house after work (about midnight) knowing Hubby was out of town overnight.
"It is really going to be lonely tonight" I said as I turned on the bedroom light.
But NO. I found....
Star Trek Bear complete with oxygen tubing (just like Hubby)
So when Hubby returned the next afternoon, he found....
Star Trek Bear with coffee and calculator, paying the bills.
I have two stories but they need pictures so BLOG time! Here is the first. Tomorrow Part II
I had picked up some stuffed animals at a garage sale...to donate to a children's hospital unit. While the light colored ones were in the washing machine, the dark colored ones were sitting in laundry basket jail waiting their turn.
Meanwhile, I turned from loading the dish washer and stepped on a brown monkey. "Brown monkey, how did you escape from jail AND climb the stairs?"
I turned around and saw the despicable, jail breaking mastermind.....
I see the proverbial 'writing on the wall'. I have been tracking on SparkPeople for over two years...I have branched out into Teams and made Friends.
I have maintained my goal weight.
But....I cannot continue to spend 90minutes a day on my computer.
Also....I need to change and begin tracking where my employer wants me to track because they will give me up to $1,000 in a debit account usable for medical expenses. I am coveting that money.
That change goes into effect in January....so around that time I will be making big changes here.
Just so you know....
Hubby went with me to hold my hand at the Dentist yesterday.
After the DDS, we stopped for a Frosty at Wendys....and, having noticed a sewing machine store across the parking lot, I began talking about my sewing machine being OLD and I have had to put a piece of Duct tape over one of the controls to get it to stay in place etc etc...
So Hubby took me across the parking lot....then the magic
He saw that sewing machines can be $3,000
So when I was talking to the sales clerk about one that was $150....He said "Let's buy that today"
(I am guessing he thought if I kept talking about needing a machine I might talk my way up to the $3,000 kind...so lets just cut it off at the pass and buy this today)
Oh yes, I am happy. and I sewed for 3 hours last evening!
This was at the wedding of a nephew in 2009. Barbara is a wonderful woman with a challenging job but had been letting life 'just happen'.
'BK' got serious about her health when she had to add diabetic pills to her hypertension meds...joined a gym and then hired a personal trainer. Next picture is when I visited her in 2011. Also gave her the pink suit I was wearing in Picture one!
And the final picture is when she visited me July of 2012....we did a ZipLine. Could I imagine doing a ZipLine with the gal in the first picture? Don't think so.
I am SO so proud of this sister......will blog about the successes of Awesome sister Marcia (also very proud of her) when she gives permission for me to do that and shares pictures with me.
