    Afternoon CHAR! I'M NOT USUALLY UP THIS "LATE" BUT SINCE I AM, I THOUGHT I WOULD CHECK IN ON YOU. I THINK YOU AND I WERE ON THE SAME WAVELENGTH ABOUT COOKING FOR THE WEEK. I AM NOT AND I MEAN NOT A COOK, BUT I MANAGED TO MAKE A BROCCOLI CHEESE QUICHE YESTERDAY, THINKING AHEAD. IT TURNED OUT REALLY UNDERDONE, BUT AT LEAST I TRIED! I KNOW WHERE MY STRENGTHS ARE AND COOKING IS NOT ONE OF THEM.
HAVE A GREAT REST OF YOUR SUNDAY, YOUR DAY OF REST!

    I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN ABOUT SUGAR. IT REALLY DOES CAUSE ONE TO CRAVE AND OVEREAT. I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT I DO HEAR YOU AS I READ YOUR BLOG. YOU HAVE COME SO FAR SINCE I HAVE "MET" YOU ON SPARKPEOPLE. I HAVE WATCHED YOU GROW AND WEATHER MANY CHALLENGES. I AM VERY PROUD OF YOU. LIFE WILL BECOME EASIER FOR YOU IN TIME. IN THE MEANTIME, WE ARE HERE FOR YOU TO LEAN ON.

    CHAR - NO GIVING UP! IT'S NOT ALLOWED... LOL
IT'S OK THAT YOU HAD THAT SNICKER'S BAR... YUM THEY ARE GOOD... BUT I'M LIKE YOU AND ONCE I GET STARTED ALL IS LOST... SO BE CAREFUL... BUT DON'T DENY YOURSELF... HEY... WHAT ABOUT GETTING A BAG OF THOSE LITTLE ONES AND PUT THEM IN THE FREEZER... THEN WHEN YOU REALLY NEED ONE JUST HAVE ONE OF THEM... SPARK EVEN RECOMMENDS ONE OR TWO OF THEM FROM TIME TO TIME...
AS FOR JANICE... I HEAR YOUR AGONY MY FRIEND... IT WON'T BE MUCH LONGER... JUST HOLD ON AND DO LIKE MARLA SAYS AND TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME MY FRIEND... AND TAKE SOME DEEP BREATHS... DID YOU LISTEN TO THAT MEDITATION/RELAXATION LINK I SENT YOU?
ALL IT TAKES IS 10 MINUTES AND I BET THAT WILL HELP YOU THROUGH THESE HARDER TIMES...
KEEP TELLING YOURSELF IT WON'T BE LONG NOW...

REMEMBER THAT WE ARE WITH YOU AND WE ARE ALL GOING THROUGH SOMETHING AS WELL... WELL AT LEAST I AM. LOL

STRESS SUCKS! LET'S NOT LET IT WIN... NOT TODAY!!!

REMEMBER...ONE DAY AT A TIME... (((HUGS))

    CHAR, I COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND WHERE YOU ARE COMING FROM WITH WANTING YOUR LIFE BACK. I WATCHED AN ELDERLY LADY FOR SEVERAL YEARS, SEVERAL YEARS AGO. I THOUGHT I WOULD LOSE MY MIND TAKING CARE OF HER...IT WAS THE HARDEST THING I EVER DID. JUST REMEMBER TO TAKE LOTS OF ME TIME IN DEALING WITH HER...AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. HOPEFULLY YOU WILL GET THE MOTORCYCLE PAID OFF SOON. KEEPING YOU IN MY PRAYERS DEAR CHAR, FOR YOU HAVE A VERY HARD JOB THERE TAKING CARE OF JANICE...I DON'T ENVY YOU ONE BIT.
HUGS DEAR FRIEND,
