First things first:
Dear Sparkfriends for all your support, kind comments and making me laugh!
(The comments about going to stay at a hotel made me bust out laughing!!!) Believe me, I was sorely, TEMPTED!
Seeing my sister after 11 yrs went surprisingly well
I think we were both 'on our best behavior' and didn't want to drag back into old junk. We were able to visit like 'casual friends' - and I'm happy to report that the relationship is on a 'cautiously warming' trend.
No feared meltdown happened when she saw my dad.
She was jolted and saddened by the changes, but no hysterics.
I HATE those the MOST!!!!
Foodwise, for the most part, I did ok. I passed on the birthday cake. But at dinner with my sis, I ordered French Dip beef sandwich with french fries. Not too bad a choice. I ate too much tho and had to make a couple of 'discrete' visits to the bathroom to 'give it back'.
I must have been WAY MORE tense about this visit than I thought cuz I woke up with sore shoulder & neck muscles. I slept like a log (usually I wake up several times during the nite) and got up at 7:30 (I'm usually up by 6). Since all the relatives are gone, I had a leisurely wake up cup of HOT tea and HOT skinny mocha and some catching up with DH as I tried to banish the cobwebs from my brain.
Then got a call from the washer repair guy- he's on his way!
...... Washer is fixed!!! One of the best ways I've spent $125
My plan today includes laundry, laundry and did I mention Laundry???
