Up Early for Meeting

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Up early so I can go to meeting for my boss. Had dinner with two from another office. We had a lovely evening! I planned out what to eat but gave in to Ruby Tuesday's mixed berry tea. Love that stuff...and that took me over my calorie range. Guess I'm learning. Had I had plain tea or water I would have been fine. RATS! I will know next time.

Past couple of evenings have been crazy with meetings and things to go to.

Mom walked down and made hair appointment the other day and walked down yesterday and got her hair permed and trimmed by herself. (They have a shop in the nursing home in the retirement community where she lives...only a short walk for her) That is a huge accomplishment for her. I am proud of her. Wondered if I should have called down there and talked to hairdresser but hubby and I talked and decided to let her handle it. Worried if she had bad experience we'd never get her to do it again. But she called me at work and said she did it the way she wanted. At least for now....she is happy about it.

Better get moving so I can get to meeting by 7:30!

    Isn't it hard to let our parents work things out for themselves? I know there are "helicopter parents" for kids in college, but sometimes I feel like a "helicopter child" trying to make sure everything is easy for him. I'm learning to back off, sounds like you are too :-)

Busy Week

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

Mom's dentist appointment went well. She looks like she is feeling better. Went to exercise with me last night but doesn't do it all...but figure what she does is better than not doing anything. She is walking down to get her hair done today. Wonder what she will tell the lady to do?

Busy week. Last night got home from exercise changed clothes and was off to meeting until 9:30. Tonight going out to dinner with two co-workers.

Printed off menu for Ruby Tuesday's so I can figure out what to eat.

Have early morning meeting for boss tomorrow at 7:30.

Work is slow right now. Each of us are cleaning out our files and while not saying it...not having alot to do right now. Boss is on vacation and not sending work and people are busy with last vacations, getting kids off to school etc.

Marvelous Monday

Monday, August 22, 2011

Woke up before the alarm...and it was set an hour early. Good start to the week. Long day ahead but we'll take it one step at a time.

Taking Mom to Dentist to get her first fit for dentures at 7:45. She's been feeling better so hope it goes well. She really likes the dentist. That is a big plus.

Off to make it a great day!

Sunday Evening

Sunday, August 21, 2011

Another weekend flew by. Took Mom out for Pizza friday night. She is doing well right now. Parade went well. Took a nice drive through the countryside. Hubby took Mom to grocery after church and then we went to store to pick up a couple of things and look around. Beautiful day!

Up early as we take Mom back to dentist. So up at 4 so I can get exercise in and get things done before work.

Hope to get in exercise with Mom after work and then have meeting in the evening. Run Run Run it seems.

Better hit the hay....excited about slowly loosing weight. Trying to track everything and surprisingly staying within limits most of the time.

    Slow is great! Scale is going down at it's own pace...and that is just fine.

Sounds like a great weekend too :)

Fabulous Friday

Friday, August 19, 2011

Made it to Friday! How quickly the week goes by. Been busy every evening and am feeling it this morning. Mom doing better.

Yesterday morning a good friend was on my mind. We had talked about meeting up for lunch before she headed back to school and thought about calling her but wasn't sure if she was sleeping in these last few days...well she called me and we met for lunch. Had a wonderful time. How precious are those dear friends.

Have a parade Saturday morning! On Praise Team Sunday so weekend will rush by too!

About 14 days until a long weekend and time with our best friends. Looking forward to a dinner train ride and another time dinner in a cave restaurant and taking a long bike ride with our friends. It will be good down time.

Off to make it a great day! Will be out and about getting office supplies for the offices.
