Well, an interesting thing happened today. I read a Spark Article yesterday about hunger, and feeling hungry. I decided to try to be aware of my hunger today. The interesting thing is that I never actually felt hungry all day! I had a bit of breakfast just because I am supposed to....then I waited. Actual hunger NEVER hit. I had a lunch at 3pm....just because I was supposed to! Then nothing. I thought about eating several times, but took a breath and evaluated my hunger level...nope, not hungry. I had some chicken and steamed veggies for dinner at 10 pm!!! (Just because I am supposed to.) I still didn't actually feel hunger. I'll see what tomorrow brings.

Hi all. Here I am again. Time to pull myself up by my boot straps and get things done! My mom passed away at the end of July and I miss her terribly. I was her sole care giver/guardian for 4 years. I have a lot to do concerning the sale of the house (that I actually live in with my family....but a sibling is not making it possible to stay...that's a story for another day)So. I start and get overwhelmed and just sit down and watch TV. My life is so out of control that I decided to start to take come control back. So, here I am.

On July 10th my 92 year old mom fell and broke her hip. She had surgery, and spent two weeks in the hospital. Once the delerium cleared and she was coming back to herself she was healing beautifully. She was a star at physical therapy. She was transferred to rehab where she passed away 16 hours later. I had been her sole care giver and legal guardian for 4 years. We were together every day. We had a lot of fun on the week ends going out to beaches and parks, community concerts and events. She had advanced dementia, but she knew me and she had a great sense of humor.
Some days it was terribly hard to answer the same questions over and over...I tried not to be impatient. I know I did a great job making the end of her life happy. She lived at home until the day she fell....I really miss her.

AAAWWWWW MAN!! I lost my streak !! I didn't log in yesterday....my daughter, who seven and a half months pregnant was admitted to the hospital last evening. She is high risk and severely asthmatic. This pregnancy has been rough...this is the second time she has been admitted in 6 weeks. She kept spiking a fever for several days and was having a tough time with the wheezing. Well, it turns out she has FLU! Kinda crazy....it's so late in the season AND she had her flu shot months ago!! it was way after midnight when I got home. Oh well, back to the drawing board!!!
Despite it all I'm not doing too badly with the calorie intake....my nutrition components still need just a little tweaking! ( really, just a little.)
