Magnificient Monday

Monday, April 25, 2011

Had a wonderful Easter Celebration. Church services were awesome. The music set was good and most of it I was comfortable to play (piano player) so I could get into the music instead of worrying about playing it right. We had three services. Co-worker attended with all her family and friends. Her daughter's boyfriend who doesn't believe in God was also there. Interesting! Kept praying through service that his heart would be touched. Suspecting he was never introduced to God with his upbringing!

Seemed to get a lot picked up and cleaned around the house on Saturday. Hubby worked on cleaning up his area..took him all day but it really looks nice. Got a lot of piano practise in Saturday too! That helps make me more comfortable with playing.

Went to Cincinnati to spend some time with son and daughter in law and then off to her Grandma's for Easter dinner. Had a wonderful time...ate too much. Grandma always makes good food. Aspargus was awesome! Ham was so good. She makes it all from scratch. Mom really enjoys herself...and I don't have to go to all that work... Missed having daughter here but she will be here a couple of weeks for son's graduation.

We came home and both went to bed at 9:30. I was beat. A long day. Looks like a long week too...Hubby said we have meeting tonight and Mom and I have Zumba after work...go go go.

Mom been puny this last week...after spending time with us and Kristie's family she was all perked up last night. Think the more she is stimulated the better she does. Wonder how she'll be this week. We will get to exercise more this week and I bet she does better. It's hard keeping her stimulated with our schedules.

Got a garage sale May 7 so gotta get working on that. Hubby and mom running it. They get into that kind of stuff. Let them go for it.

Ready to start the week!

Fabulous Friday

Friday, April 22, 2011

Here we are at Fabulous Friday again! How the weeks fly by. Life has still been crazy around here. Didn't get home until 10 last night as I had Praise Team Practise and it ran long due to Easter service. Hubby was watching TV and then was going t o went with him. No dinner for me...Didn't want to eat at 10 pm and no time before hand. This is last week to be on Praise Team for a couple of months. Have to carve out time to work on music this weekend. Came up with idea maybe son and daughter in law want to drive up here and stay Saturday night with us and go to Easter Services with us and then we'll have lunch here and then travel to Grandmother in law's for Easter dinner. Maybe it will do them good to get out of the house some. Son and daughter in law went to adoption classes. Guess they are looking into that route now. Tough time as her sister is PG and wasn't planned and she already has 3 she can't take care of now and not married and of course complains that she is PG all the time. Interesting saga.

Gearing up for garage sale hubby is going to run. Community garage sale Hubby wanted to plug into. He likes doing those kinds of things...and I'm like...go for it. Maybe he'll get rid of a few things.....

Off to make it a great day!

    It helps having a spouse join sparks, or like the way it is with you. You have a spouse who has other interests, instead of eating, with you. That's a great deal of support and provides motivation! I have rough days eating out. That is a crazy time for me. Everything looks great. I have been enjoying, when we get fast food, small hamburger and fries. I do not gain a pound, with this choice. I try hard not to turn my diet into a carnival life. You have a handle on that. It is funny that there are so many connotations to your post! You do a great job! Have a nice day!

  Must be difficult for Son and DIL with their situation...don't you just love it when these gals get PG at drop of a hat and don't want it or treat their kids poorly

Terrific Thursday

Thursday, April 21, 2011

Got to again do some running for getting out of my chair. Co-worker has been in such a better mood the last couple of weeks. An amazing turn around. WOW! She isn't snapping our heads off and she talks before 10:30 am and we are allowed to talk to her before 10:30 am Wonder how long it will last?

Went way over calories yesterday. Really starting to work on that. Think that is where I'm needing to pay attention to.

Off to seize the day!

    Hey -- just a thought but maybe your co-worker is being different because your reaction to her is different. I know you've put a lot of thought into this and how you don't let other people get you down. Someone said, you can't change other people- only yourself.

I think you're doing it!!!! emoticon emoticon

Radical Wednesday

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Took Mom to Dr yesterday. She did need medication...lack of estrogen is causing some issues. Started to cry thinking she was going to need surgery. Guess she sits at home and stews about things and gets herself all worked up over things. She complains about things all the time and then it will be better and I find it hard to figure out what is normal and when we need to take her somewhere. Maybe that's why she's been so irritable recently. Hope she takes things properly.

Her daughter finally told her they are moving to Texas in June. Wonder when she would have told her if her niece hadn't asked her about it and Mom asked her? Didn't appear to be upset about it. Tried to encourage her that I am happy they are making a fresh start. It will be good for them.

God and lots of prayer must have helped me because I felt calm with her yesterday and didn't let everything get to me.

Got to do some running for work again yesterday. Love getting out of the office.

Looking at having our room replaced in the next couple of weeks. Will be good to finally working on some projects.

    The larger the family, the more issues we seem to have. So glad you got your mom to the doctor and finding the cause of her problems. Sure hope the meds help her quickly.
Continuing prayers for you and your mom...
