Hello my wonderful Spark Friends! Just wanted to post a quick update about life!

Dad gets his epidural tomorrow, which is my birthday. But, when I reminded him what the date tomorrow is he remembered it is my b-day! Last year he didn't even recognize that it was my birthday. He then starts his botox injections on Thursday. He has his hopes up way too high I think, but that is him.... I just hope he will not be disappointed! I keep trying to give him reality checks, but he always has hope and I hope that works in his favor!

Sassy is doing fine. Evidently she just twisted her knee a bit and didn't tear anything! She is as active and playful as ever! I'm so relieved!

As of last Wed. I lost a total of 5 pounds on WW. I've tracked every single day for 4 weeks now. This week has not been my best for staying in range, but I have not used up my weekly extra points and you all know how I exercise! But, the scale was up a bit this AM. Hoping it is water and will be gone for my official weigh in tomorrow!

I've had a great time with my nephew and dad has enjoyed his company as well. Dad wasn't up to coming out here on Sat., as planned, but he did come out on Sunday and it was nice to spend Father's Day with him. He called yesterday and thanked me for Father's Day.

With tomorrow being my birthday I really miss my mom terribly. I will miss her stuffed peppers which was my annual birthday meal. Judging from pictures and my own memory, she made my birthday special every year since I was born. Even one year when we weren't really talking she invited me to dinner and even invited my boyfriend at the time who was part of the reason we were not talking! I miss her so much.

Well, life is progressing as usual. But, I missed a hair appt. last Thursday and missed an orthopedic appt. today! My mind is mush! So, need to try and reschedule everything! Thanks for reading and thanks for all of your wonderful support! It really does mean a lot to me!

    Happy belated birthday - I hope it was a good one. I know what you mean about celebrating your birthday without your mom. It has taken me YEARS to get my mind wrapped around having birthdays without the people who put me here.

    How's your dad?

    Hope all goes well with Dad's epidural today. Congrats on your weight loss. Important to reschedule the hair apptmt. The doctor's apptmt - I can understand why that may have slipped. I need to schedule a dental appointment and for some reason - I just can't seem to let my fingers do the walking. Come to think about it I need to do a medical appointment to.
    Have a Wonderful B-day.

    Glad to hear from you! I hope everything goes well tomorrow with your Dad's procedure. I know you will probably be with him all day, so wishing you an early happy birthday. Congrats on the weight loss! For some folks, WW is the answer. Give Sassy a treat from her Aunt Patti!

    First, congrats on you losing the 5 lbs. That's awesome! I hope you have a good weigh in day tomorrow! WooHoo!

    Sorry you are sad and missing your Mom. That's understandable! Glad your Daddy remembered. I remember last year how he forgot and you were sad. Know all of us here on SP remember and wish you the best!!! If I could, I would make you your stuffed peppers!!! One of my favorites too! Can you go out to eat at a place that makes them?!!?

    I'm praying all goes well for your Daddy. He deserves a break! I'll keep praying!
    God bless Melissa...
