Monday 7/7/14

Well, today is the last time I get to see
my son, but so much better than not seeing him
at all! Love him & his GF. They are so sweet!
We are going to a Bar-B-Q place for dinner. That will
be nice. Not far from their hotel.

They are leaving early in the morning. Need to be in
Orlando for flight takes off 10:30. They really need to
leave the hotel before 8 as they have a rental to return
also.

I have not seen him this many days in a row in over 27
years. Very nice, to look forward too.

I don't complain, as there isn't much I can do about it.

Well, that's about it for today. A bit tired. Been working
on Ebay, etc.

Night all. Hope you had a wonderful day.
Thanks for all the comments on my son's visit & on
keeping me in an upright position....with my weight,
even though I fall over sometimes ;)

    I'm so glad you got to spend this time with your son! I know how it is. I went from seeing my son every day for 29 years to talking to him once a month or so and seeing him on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter.

Sunday 7/6/14 Surprise!

Sunday, July 06, 2014

Sunday 7/6/14 Surprise!

On Friday, the 4th, I spent the day at my daughters.

I was going to stay at my GF's 45 miles from here, since I was
already up there house/dog sitting for another person. My daughter
invited me for a bar-b-q and I didn't commit, saying I would probably
stay at my GF's. So I mentioned it to my GF and she said, maybe you
should go to your daughters. My daughter had called her and told
her the following:

My son, Howard & His GF Lynne, were flying in from OH to surprise me
on the 4th at my daughter's house.

The door bell rings, I go to the door and it's my son. Had not seen him in
2 yrs. I usually see him one day a year, when I drive to NJ and he drives
in from OH. But I have not been able to go up for 2 yrs. and this year did not
look promising, although I was going to try.

I was SPEECHLESS! That does not happen often. I cried several times. Hard to
realize he was in FL right there with ME!..

His Girlfriend also. I like her a lot and hope they will be getting married soon!

We have spent time together every day since he got her. It's SO NICE. He has never
been to FL & He never Flew. Now he did both. He will be 44 in October.

They are leving on Tues morning, early. Tomorrow will be my last day to see
them. I have an early morning call on Tuesday to drive a gentleman to
dialysis.

Anyway, it's been a great 3-4 days. They spent Sat at the beach with my daughter
and family and we all got together for dinner at Texas Roadhouse last night.

Today they went Air Boat riding with my daughter & her hubby, then back to my
Daughter Alice's for lunch, which I had made while they were out.

They came over to my condo after that for a while.

I am exhausted but feels good.

Hope you all had a blessed weekend!

Thursday 6/26/14

Weighed in at TOPS this AM.
Lost 1.5 pounds this week.
Lost 6.0 pounds last week.

Finally off to a good start.
Stayed in calorie range today
but did not make the best choices
when it comes to what I ate. But
I'm happy & planned the splurge, just
wanted to stay in my range.
emoticon

Walked 9,809 steps, more but that was what
I walked when I had my phone with me.
It keeps track of my steps. I love it.
Have gotten in quite a few over 10,000.
Most always get over 5000, don't realize how
hard that is to do.
Walked 4.4 miles today.

It's all good. Looking forward to another great week.
