    State Fair is AWESOME!! Where are you from? I grew up in IOWA. I think it's the best state fair there is. Livestock shows, tractor pulls, the Pork Queen , Pork chops on a stick and fried snickers bars! Oh well, with Spark People and now that I live in Michigan things are different.

    Love love love the State Fair! My husband and I try to go twice - once with our 4-year-old daughter, once just for us. I may have to forgo the "french fry log" this year though, probably doesn't fit in with my new spark mindset... emoticon

Too hot to walk today

Wednesday, August 13, 2008

Maybe this evening late it will be cooler.
Sit with the boys until 2:00 then off to the market. I haven't been eating well the last 2 days--still not feeling right.

I t really doesn't matter how I feel I need to eat well--also to understand that I can not eat a meal & it is OK. I am not anorexic material. I have this underlying feeling of getting sick if I don't eat--I know, from childhood. emoticon

I need that mantra of " everything is just fine--God wants the best for me"

I hope your doing well.

The house is empty again.

I t is too quiet--Everyone returned home after the week end.

Back to the walks and less food. I walked the river this (Monday)
evening--there were a lot of distance swimmers. They made me want to jump in the water looked sooo inviting. Well, I will wait until 1:00 on Tuesday--I will be spending four hours with the boys & friends at the Club.

Well, I hope your doing well--- emoticon

Walked 5 miles--then went to the pool with the boys--fun!!!

They tied the Knot!!!!!

Sunday, August 10, 2008

emoticonThe kids got married--Her family was there too--they were late, but they were there. I think that they decided that the kids would get married with or without her family present. The dinner went well-a lot of laughter and the bride & groom were full of love.

I ate everything in sight.

Family spent a few nights & we ate a lot again===a gain for me!!
Everyone has just headed back to thier homes.

Well, the plan for today is to let my gall bladder get some rest--it hasn't bothered me for a few years--all that meat & cake got it angry. I didn't have to eat all that junk-- Oh, well, another day ahead.

Gotta get ready for church.
Hope your day is going well.
