I made it thru yesterday

Tuesday, December 02, 2008

I first want to thank some of my sparkpals.Vegefarmer,Feistymama,Kyann402,S
Thank you ladies for knowing just the right thing to say.No asking why.Just knowing why. I will be coming to your blogs later today.
Also thank you to all who made the nice comments about my helper girl Brianna. I am very blessed to have her.
And thank you to all the others who daily encourage me.
I am starting the day off with good intentions that should last thru the day.Even hubby said get back in focus. He was very patient with me last evening as I was a grump.
I have had a healthy breakfast of one egg omelete with tomato slices on the side. And I will take care to stay at my goal calories. I will not let one bad day undo all my hard work. And it has been hard. It might get easier for some but it isn't getting easier for me. And this month advertizements are everywhere for fat calorie laden foods everywhere. That does not help. But I have to learn to not let it undo me.
I got all my cards ready.Actually hubby finished them up.The stamps came and he sat and stamped them all.He will take them to post Office today.I have one going to a spark pal in Australia and he is going to have to check about postage. I looked at post office site but was a little confused. This way he can check for sure.He is going to check about New Zealand postage for me too.He is so sweet to to go as post office is like stores.Packed. That is why I started ordering my stamps from internet. For $1 I can pick out exactly which stamps I want and they are at my house in 2 or 3 days.It is worth the $1 to save on gas and not have to stand in line plus I can always find better looking stamps. And it is one less errand for hubby. He does so many for me.
Well I have to go get a shower and head to docs for blood check. Will check back later and let you know how the day went. emoticon emoticon

    Good for you! You're positive attitude is contagious. At this time of year, temptations are all around, aren't they? I'll make Christmas cookies the next couple of weeks. I've got my tins ready to fill as soon as the cookies cool. Out of sight, out of mind, so I won't eat them. This is the only time of I year that I bake sweets.

    Can I borrow Bill & Brianna? It's not that far to Wisconsin!! emoticon

I've been grumpy lately myself. For me I think it's winter. I hope your day today was much better! It sounds like you started the day well.

I just started on my Christmas cards tonight. We got our first card so I thought I'd better get my butt in gear. The time flies away from me when I get home from work.

You're doing great!! Keep it up!

    What's one day?
The really good thing about this one day of bad eating is that it has raised your motivation to change that tomorrow & the next day & the next cos you know how bad it has made you feel.
You are doing really well, your not a quitter, so come on, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and i look forward to reading your blog tomorrow.
hugs. karyn

    It's OK, we've all stumbled. When you stumble you pick yourself up and continue on your merry way. One day is just that, ONE DAY. You know how it made you feel, so tomorrow will be a better day.

    You're right on - start over. You'll do it, too. I know you will. When I slip, I remember the Spark article that said slipping is like forgetting to brush your teeth before bed. Just because you don't brush one night doesn't mean you give up and never brush again. Nope, you start over in the morning. I try to start over the minute I'm conscious of slipping. Why wait until morning?

    I completely understand where you are coming from. In fact, today has been like that for me as well. Luckily, we know where we've 'digressed'. The day is not over, you can end it on a good note, and start tomorrow on an even better one. :o)

Grandma's Helper

Sunday, November 30, 2008

My sweetie Brianna has everything in house done for me.She did 90% of all work herself.Plus did a bunch of housework for me. She wasn't too happy I took her picture. It is nice when they get big enough to help and they want to help.

Busy Day

Saturday, November 29, 2008

It has been a very busy day.But we got a lot more done than I thought we would. Brianna was so much help. She did most of work.All that is left is for her to put all the precious moments ornaments on tree in back room and bows on tree in art room by front window. She really worked hard. I will get a picture of her tomorrow. She even went to grocery store and helped and then put most of groceries up for me. She is tired tonight.She asked if she had to get up early tomorrow and I told her no. She is such a big help and never complains. I am going to pay her but she doesn't want me to.But she earned more than I am giving her. She did about 90% of the work.
I thought I would be able to get her to stamp all the cards but my stamps didn't come today.They should be here monday so I will get most of cards mailed on tuesday.

    it sure does sound very busyin your house.
Hard to believe that Christmas is almost here.
We went to Nelson today and i brought 2 new ornaments for our tree. It is one of my little traditions. Every year 1 or 2 new ornaments.
Sounds like Brianna is such a big help to you, how wonderful to have her there at this time of year.
Good luck with getting all your cards stamped & on their way.

    Awesome! I love your birds, and I love that you photograph and share them! I've tried to do the same with our cardinals and bluejays and hummingbirds, but I'm either too loud or too slow. They always fly away.

    That's so cool! It's so pretty!!! I don't see a large variety of birds in my backyard so I love to see your pictures!!

I hope you're having a wonderful morning. It's going to be around 44 degress today, which is pretty mild for this time of year. Tomorrow afternoon the snow begins. By Monday morning (jut in time for the drive into work) we're supposed to have up to 4 inches. ICK!
