Did not even spin the wheel and it is 9pm!!! Went to daughter's to help out--laundry, vacuuming, entertaining 2 year old while baby nursed!!! Went on train, so it took 1.5 hours each way. But did enjoy myself catching up on magazines.
Spark will have to be on back burner, but I did track breakfast.

I have been very frustrated with the ads on Sparkpeople. Yes, I have pretty much learned how to tune them out, but many times they actually block what I want to do. I discovered a free program called Adblock, and it really works, not just for spark, but for everything. The computer programmer who developed it asks for a donation. And I was glad to give him some money for making my life on spark so utterly much better.
Even if you do not read the ads, they hit you subliminally. I resent that. I would pay spark to not have ads, and I even asked them about it, but they said no. Pandora is a great music program that you can get free with ads, or you pay without ads. I think all these computer applications should have that option.

I have lots of exciting projects for the new year!!
One thing is to learn to use a GPS. After getting lost in Walnut Creek, being anxious about my daughter in labor, well, it is time for me to learn this device.
Another is to learn to use my camera. it has all these dials on it that I never use. The photos of the kids were coming out blurry when they move.
Even though I did not track for 3 days while at my daughter's house, it came back very easily to do it this morning. And even though, I can "eyeball" the amounts now, I know which dish holds one cup, which holds half a cup, I think it is wise to continue the habit of measuring, so that I don't slip up. It is so easy to slide. To think, oh well, I can mound up extra in this bowl, and before you know it you have two cups of ice cream instead of one, (when really you should only have a half!!! ha ha)

I just got home from my daughter's house. LIttle Ava is a sweetheart and her big brother seems to be doing fairly well. I really loved being part of a family life. Breakfast in the morning, all the hubbub with the dogs and cats (even if they could be annoying), all the activity.
Now i have to take my tree down, be all alone in my big house.

Am still at my daughter's house, eating very well, won't worry about tracking, and just enjoy myself. Holding an infant is a total, total joy. Especially when that infant is part of you.
Baby is a little girl, now I have a grandson and a granddaughter, but only they are allowed to call me "grandma"
I do not want my friends calling me that!!!!
