I am happy to say I did sleep some better last night.It helped that only shoulder was hurting bad. Unfortunately my night eating did me in again. I am doing a little better but still not good. I do great during the day but the food demon and all his pals attack late at night. But I am working on it.It can be solved .I just haven't done it yet
It is very nice having Bill home this week. I am no company in morning so he does his thing and runs errands while I sleep late. Today he is bowling with his brother but he made a trip to grocery store this morning.I did get up earlier so I did spend some time with him.Oh yes I do have a story about his trip to store.
Bill is always getting on to me when I turn a corner with car and hit curb.I just laugh and say I did it on purpose. Well While he was in grocery store he got a phone call just as he was going around a corner and let go of cart with one hand.He clipped a display of spices and dumped the whole thing out.There was spices everywhere. Good thing it wasn't something glass.Just as he did it a lady saw it and laughed at him.Then they were both on floor picking the stuff up. I told him I would have laughed at him too. I have come close with my cart a few times but never knocked anything over yet.
We took some stuff to Joy's yesterday and Bill got his dog fix. Whenever he starts thinking about a pet he finds one to play with and then he is ok.
Here are a few pics.The ones of him I took thru a window.It is Joy Bill and white female boxer is Barley and dark one is male called Whiskey. Her dog that got killed a few weeks back was Miller. I think Barley is dumb name for a female dog.I don't know why she likes the alcoholic names. I thought she looked thin but they are sure active.She let them out in back yard and they were running and chasing each other full steam.
Ok I have some laundry and a kitchen mess calling my name. I may even get out of this nightgown and put real clothes on.
We are a little cool again today but sun is shining and it looks beautiful outside.
Have a great day my friends.Don;t forget we are all on this journey together
Altho I had a bad night today has been good.Bill is off all week so I get to spend extra time with him.
We took the shirts back he got me and I got 2 different ones.Plus some long pajama bottoms to wear around the house. Then we took some old exercise equitment and a couple of chairs over to my daughter Joy . Afterwards we stopped at a real nice cozy restaurant for supper.Very quiet and have a big fireplace. An adult eating place. The food was excellent and the helpings were all small which was nice. I have to check a couple of things but I think my whole meal was only maybe 600 cal at the most.
I did very good yesterday until I went to bed and could not get to sleep. It was after 3 when I finally went to bed for last time.It was close to 4 before I finally got to sleep.Then I woke up several times. Well I got frustrated and we know what happens.I started eating. But I have been good today and I will be good tonight for sure.
Here are a few pictures. The first three is everyone that was here but 2 that missed getting in picture.Plus we had a daughter who was home sick.
Here is my oldest son who is one hairy fellow.I told him he was scary
And here is Bill with our grand daughter Tamara who is 13 going on 30
Ok I am heading to living room.Have a good night and stay warm.It is even chilly here in Florida
Today was soup making day and I was very busy with that. I made 2 pots of soup this time.My regular big pot for me and I made another pot of chicken and pasta soup.The chicken and pasta was for our daughter Heather who is sick with the flu. I ended up with a bigger pot than I thought so I had plenty for her and my sister both. So we delivered care packages tonight.Took my sister 2 quarts of the chicken and 1 of veggies for her and her hubby.Then made a bigger care package for Heather.I had her a quart of both kinds plus 6 bags for her to put in freezer.Added a couple of cans of broth and crackers plus a few goodies too.
I still had about 10 bags for my freezer.I still have 4 bags from last pot. So I am souped out. What I mess it was to clean up.
Since this is my start over day the last thing I wanted was to eat out but it was easier. But I was ok. We went to a family style place where I could get healthier choice. Instead of the two extra sides that came with my meal she brought me fresh fruit instead. So I think I am well within my calorie range.
It is very chilly tonight.The thermometer says 55 but it feels much colder. It will hit freezing up from us a ways. We are very spoiled here.We are cold when you would think it was a heat wave.
My Gratitude,A Daily Journal came today. I already started one in a journal I had and will switch to the new one on the first. It only has 5 lines so I will have to write smaller. I have been writing down 3 things I am grateful for each day. Rural3 told me she was doing it and had gotten this journal so I am copying her.
I also got the Harry Potter DVD that Bill ordered me for Christmas.Well I ordered it but he is paying for it and the journal
Ok Here are a couple of pics.I haven't edited them all yet. But I want to go sit with Bill
Here we are with our grandsons,WilliamII,Christian and Neil.I come to about their chins.When Bill did the yearly measure on door William is now 6' 1" Christian is 6'1/2" Neil was 5'11.5". Some tall boys.They love it that Grandma has to look up to them.They are great boys
Landon beat them all by growing 7 inches but he started out as a baby.LOL
Got to go log my food and join Bill in living room.Stay warm my friends and have a good night
Here are our 11 grandchildren.They range in age from 10 months old to 20 years old.They are all such great kids and so loving.
I messed up when I was telling their names.The little blond headed boy is Christopher not Christian.
I apologize for the jerky moves. But wanted to show you my wall to wall family.Everyone you see except for lady and man ( My sister Mary and her son)on couch is either one of our children ,grandchidren or spouse of one of our kids. One of our daughters was sick plus a few other family members didn't make it. We are now happy for the quiet. I need a bigger house.
