Mother-in-law turned 97 today! Had a great party for her

Saturday, April 19, 2014

I spent a lot of time on the road today so my exercise was limited to 10 minutes on my exercise bike tonight. Today was my Mother-in-law's 97th birthday so we had a birthday party to celebrate her big day.

I did a fairly good job on my eating. I ate good before leaving town this morning and then ate a lot of healthy food - raw veggies and no dips. Just a little piece of cake and no ice cream. Just a small sloppy joe for my meat instead of the fried chicken, pizza or sausages. Tonight I'm having a double berry chicken salad for supper.

Tomorrow we're having a family-only Easter dinner. I'm attempting to clean up the dinning room before bed tonight but I'm getting a little tired and haven't even dyed our Easter Eggs yet. I guess we'll just see what gets done before I get to bed.

    A relative of mine turns 96 this week, still living alone at home and shuns any offers of help! I hope I do as well and can still get a little jog in!

    Happy birthday to your mother-in-law. Tonight we celebrated my mother-in-law's 80th birthday. We are having Easter dinner here tomorrow, and I'm not as organized as I'd like. Oh well, it always comes together, and the important thing is to celebrate with family! Happy Easter!
