Blowing the Dust Off

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

Wow - I took some vacation around the holidays and the proverbial ish hit the proverbial fan.

We had a lot of drama over the holidays thanks to our darling daughters, who don't know how to do a special occasion without involving stress and drama in everyone's life. In my youngest's defense, hers was not self-inflicted. Her father-in-law passed away unexpectedly over the holidays to some less than wonderful circumstances.

My other daughter, well, she and her husband have been fighting since the day they got married, and decided on the trip back from Indiana to the East Coast that they officially hated each other and wanted a divorce. Then they proceeded to post the drama all over Facebook.


To make things even more fun, Bob and I went down to Youngest Daughter's to babysit so they could attend the funeral and viewings, and came home with something special - strep. We BOTH got it. And it was horrible. Funny thing is neither of us had a sore throat. Apparently the strain going around didn't come with one. I finish up antibiotics today - Bob finishes his on Friday.

I also decided to go back to Weight Watchers over the holidays. It is much easier for me to track everything on the Weight Watchers mobile app than it is here at SparkPeople, so I've been using it more. I am actually going to go to my first meeting on Saturday. I did WW years ago and it worked really well.

So, that's what is going on here. I hope your holidays were less, well, eventful. :-)

    Unfortunately, I get what you're saying about the daughter drama! Seems to be something that they just tend to do -- drama! wow!

Congrats on getting back to WW --- it does work --- enjoy the journey --- and take your "me" time back --- you deserve it!!
