B A N A N A S....some reason gwen has been coming up a lot this week.

Highlights of the week. Took my car in, they said the issue was with my computer so he didn't charge me! Yay!

I made a Julia Child recipe this week, took me 5 hours, my last Ha-rah of being unemployed for awhile. It was good, not really 5 hours good, but good.

I had a meeting with my photography partner and a couple getting married. My partners FIL went on life support today =((( so they have to rush to Chicago. Pretty sad. Losing a parents......

Speaking of which, I went to see my mom yesterday. I hope she's ok. She seems pretty sad since now the office sold and she doesn't have a reason to go out and do things everyday. Seems like she needs a little job in town or therapy, not sure which or both. Something to get her out of the house. We are kind of backsliding on working on the house. I know it's all really hard for her. I can't imagine how much change she's going through. I think I need to start calling her more again. Just to make sure she's ok. She started sobbing when I was leaving yesterday, ughhh. We did put my dad in his new urn! He didn't quite fit so we can to move some ashes to another container. He is now in two places at once! Don't we all wish we could do that. I would send my 2nd piece to hang out with my mom all day and make her happy. We are gonna spread the extra under his favorite tree infront of the house when u can see the ground again.

I tried harder to eat better this week but did so so. I made chocolate bark for Valentines day. Then I went straight to the gym avoiding eating all of it.


Tomorrow I hit the gym hard with water aerobics then werq. Then sunday another werq class. The reason I went to see my mom was to pick up my dads last turtle. Shipping him this week hopefully if the weather is actually predicted right. He's quite the handsome lad.

    I love Julia Child but some of her recipes are a ton of work. Too much for me.

Great news on your car! It's always good when it's an easy fix.

I'm sure your mom must be lost without your dad. I know how I would be without Benny. At least she has you.

The turtle is really cute. I hope he/she enjoys it's new home.

The chocolate bark looked really delicious. I made a meal at home as it was snowing here again. I wonder if we will ever get rid of this snow.

    I emailed her, she's doing better. Was just having a bad day when I went.

    It's going to take a long time for her to heal. Dan's dad is still not the same and it's been almost 8 years since Dan's mom died! :(

Cute turtle. And nice job on getting out to the gym. I really admire you for that. :)

    Yeah, your mom needs things to do - maybe volunteering or something?

Love that you went to the gym instead of eating the Valentine's goodies you made (which look amazing!)!!!

    She lost her love, I'm sure she's lonely and sad. Spending more time with her may help. Glad you found a home for the turtle !
