Still sunny today in Philly

Yesterday was a beautiful day. My DH and I are now working on putting together Ikea furniture(two desks and two bookshelves) for what used to be the messy toy room which we are now turning into a game room/library/study room. The "toy monster" is still working as it's important to be consistent. So even yesterday the "Toy Monster" took some toy soldiers that were left out on the floor. Not sure when they will even notice they are missing as they seem to have so much stuff that it's crazy!! I am not sure about the rest of you but when I was growing up we got a few things for special occasions such as birthdays and Christmas and you played with those toys all year. But really we were so lucky growing up as we hardly ever played in side...we were outside on the rope swing and in the creek all day. Today I think it's so sad as parents are even afraid to let their kids play outside, ride bikes and such. It is a sad world with so many perverts out there. I am just counting my blessings having been able to grow up in a time when we mostly played outside and had no fear. I get the grandkids outside as much as possible and always walk to school to pick them up and walk them home. They always seem excited that we are "walking" instead of riding in a car.
Today I need to make good choices as I guess I ate a little too much(but all good stuff allowed on my diet, still no gluten, sugar, little dairy) We went to a party. We weren't going to go at first since the ex-wife would be there but our son's step sister who was having the party always invites us to things and we usually don't go as we don't want to interfere with the ex-wife's territory....but this time the step-sister really insisted. She is always so nice to us. So we decided to go for a while. We had just seen the ex-wife at Halloween for trick or treat and so at least the ice was broken. My thing is that I will always be gracious to her even though I don't agree with what she does to my step sons making them feel guilty and such....but I don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable due to me. I can get along with anyone. And since I love the grandkids and two step sons so much I wouldn't want them worrying about it. My DH though really doesn't like her at all and hates being around her. Well went we got to the party she actually came up and hugged me hello. And then I was shocked as my DH hugged her and said hello. He even got into a conversation with her about hearing aids as she just got one and loves it. My DH really needs one so I am happy they had that conversation. Although I am not sure I want him to hear all that I say.....LOL. Anyway it all worked out fine but I think I ate too much...even though it was good stuff was up two pounds to 106.5 after being 104.5 yesterday. I of course do not worry as I know it will be gone within the next couple of days.
I do hope you all are having a great week end.
Make good choices.
