Good Morning, (just barely)
I've been up for hours, but I have been totally busy. Gloria is here today and she brought me a present. I got a chai Latte for Easter, sugar free of course! She spoils me. I fed the bird and she cleaned his cage and set the other cage out on the balcony off my room. She is a busy bee this morning. I felt bad that I had her work today until she told me that she has another client for whom she works today. I am glad now that I didn't tell her to take today off as well as yesterday.
There is nothing going on here. I just talked to my Vancouver daughter and she told me that my other daughter's son got accepted to the college he really wanted to go to. Hooray! I remember how bad we all felt when colleges did not accept her. In her case it was because she didn't participate in extra curricular activities. They didn't allow for the fact that she worked all the time she was in high school.
My younger daughter didn't even try to get into the "elite" colleges for that reason. She had a good job all through high school, she worked for Safeway then and for several years after she graduated. She didn't leave Safeway until her second son was born. She has now gotten her bachelor's degree and has a very good job. I am proud of both girls.
So much talk for this Easter morning. I had no children to make the special activities happen. So I am taking it easy. I don't know what I will have for dinner, but after my experience a couple of days ago I won't fix much. I did put on one of my new outfits and it fits. It is several sizes smaller than the old clothes.
I put all of the old clothes in a container for the coming garage sale. I will be glad to let most of them go. There is one outfit that I really fell bad about having to let go. I bought for myself a lovely crocheted over blouse and tee to go under it just before my body started to shrink from the weight loss. It is in the garage sale stuff along with my two beautiful cowl neck sweaters. Hopefully, by next winter I will be able to buy new sweaters in a size without an X.
I am happy that my size is beginning to reflect the seventy-five pounds I've lost. I can't say that losing has been difficult. I have been quite content with changing what I eat. That is really all I've done. I still can't eat a lot and that is just fine. My former problem was that I didn't know what is a healthy diet. I knew it intellectually, but not emotionally. Now I eat much differently and it is working well.
So I am very happy this beautiful Easter morning. The sun is shining brightly and all is very well with my world. I hope you are feeling better soon Jan. It is such a waste to feel bad when you want very much to take part in the festivities of the day. Patty, I like BK too, but recognize that it must always be a treat, not a regular stop. I am glad you got your walk in today. I have to admit I prefer our temperature to yours.
I to am wondering about how Glenna is doing. I hope we will get some word soon. Louise, it is really great to hear from you as regularly as we do. I love all my Spark Friends. You keep me happy and healthy. Thank you all.
