Bridesmaid at 80, second part

Wednesday, October 14, 2009

This afternoon I received some sad news. My g/f's fiancee passed away suddenly of a heart attack.
We never know when it will happen so we must be ready. I do know he was ready as he was a good Christian man and former pastor.
Seems like the sky is falling in on a lot of us.

    I am so sorry to hear of your G/F's loss. I will keep her and her friends and family in prayer. I can't imagine the pain you are all feeling right now.

    It's a hard part of life, but bless her for going for it and you for supporting her. At least she had the fun of some of the planning of the wedding with him, memories that can support her now.

The latest with me.

Thursday, October 08, 2009

Someone asked what is going on in my world. My latest is that I had the right side mirror of my car get sick so took it to the car doctor. The doctor couldn't help me as they said they had to order a part. Visit one. Then on visit two I went in and they put the part in but told me the computer which regulated it was on the blink so There I go again. Then on visit three they said the computer is working. I think great I will get my scan or whatever, they will say everything is ok and I can go home. Well it turned out to be an ICU visit. They put it on the computer, nothing changed, then they called in different docs for a consultation and as many as 4 docs at a time were there. Pretty soon I saw they had taken the whole door off. Well I had been there 3 hours and still open, they hadn't closed me up yet. So I went in and told them I thought they took advantage of older ladies. The whole emergency room was emptying out and I am still there with a lunch engagement and no car. Then I got called into the car principals office and I said this doesn't look good. They told me they just hadn't found the problem and they were going to rent me a car and that was yesterday a.m. This is almost closing time now but they did call me from the car doctor's office and told me they had ordered a whole new mirror and they would have to take it to another town to their body shop when the mirror came in to be painted. LOL So that is the latest with me but I did get wheels.

Dang sounds like at the Hyundia dealer in Brownsville when we took Dori's car in a year or so ago.

emoticon I am leaving for Louisiana in a few hours. Everyone who loves cajun food say amen. My desire is to choose broiled or blackened seafood and not come back with some more extra pounds. I can't afford to keep putting on the pounds LOL
Since I will only be gone two days maybe I will be able to do it. Perseverence, portion control and healthy choices.
Never give up.

Bridesmaid at 80

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Can you imagine? I would rather be the bride. My best friend is getting married the 5th of December and she informed me by e-mail, no less, that I was to be the bridesmaid and her step daughter who is her age (since she married her last husband who was much much older than she) is to be her matron of honor.
Do miracles never cease. We should never let age keep us from living. We must enjoy life and I say I will never be any younger than I am today so might as well. What the heck.
Just thought I would let you all know the latest in my life.

Picture on last blog

Sunday, September 20, 2009

Marcy you asked the story of the pic. In February of 2007 I started going to TOPS (Take off Pounds Sensibly) and lost 55 pounds in nine months which put me at my goal weight. Because of the weight loss I became queen of our chapter and district and also graduated to a KOP (Keep off Pounds Sensibly). Three of us from our chapter went to our district convention in Northern Texas where we had the ceremonies. So many beautiful queens and a lot of slim KOPS. It was a great fun time.
We had to dress in white. Actually my dress is ecru which is kind of an off white and the crown says TOPS.
Some people say you can't lose weight when you are older, I say I will never be younger than I am today.

    Irene, you loved lovely. TOPS CLUB is a great organization. BUT you did fantastic to get to your goal, since many people come there for years and NEVER get to goal weight. But I have known KOPS who have kept their status for YEARS and that is so wonderful to see.
