Eating has not been quite so forgiving this week. I have not been able to exercise quite like normal and been eating out more than usual. I spent 1.5 days with my mom helping her tie up lose ends. I seriously felt like I had run 12 miles after day 2 and I know what that feels like. Before going I baked her 2 quiche so she wont have to worry about cooking for awhile. I helped her clean the office and then helped her clean the house on day 2. She has 1 week before this guy is coming to look at stuff to send to an auction house. Hopefully she can keep going on her own. I need to rest up for a job I start next week. She seems like she's in a good place. She has a lot of ppl helping her. As long as she can sell the office, she could break even on everything else hopefully. It's so weird getting rid of my dads stuff. Especially since he never wanted to throw anything away. Now it's like he has no stake in anything and everything is up for grabs and it just seems so wrong. I hope he's ok with what we are doing. My mom let me take home this picture that I absolutely love. It was hanging in my grandmas house when my parents met at 16 and 17.
Top is my aunt, left is my uncle and right is my dad at 2 yrs old in 1952. My dad was a really sick child and went thru a lot of surgeries and there were hardly any baby pictures of him. Just this one and and 1 other I got as well. He asked his mom at one point why there were hardly any and she said "We didn't think you would live". lol nice! And he was the baby of 3 and I am sure the baby always gets the least photos. I found some letters from him too, one on his way to the worlds fair in DC on a bus in 1964 when he was 14. Another from college right after he started the vet med program at age 20 or 21. He addressed it "Family+dog+fish+turtle" lol I guess his my took care of his pets while he was away.
I finally get to go dance today! I am excited I haven't danced in almost a week. Tomorrow morning as well! Jonesing for some hip shaking! Gotta get a hold on my eating as well.
Have a wonderful weekend you guys!
