Well I am still canning I have finished all the tomatoes. I have canned more than I need but there is still more in the garden I have given more away than I canned so I feel they are not going to waste. I am now working on grape jelly and when that is done I will make pickled beets regular beets and carrots. After all that I will be working on pumpkin apple butter drying apples apple crisp and anything else I can find to put up this winter for the family.
I am a little behind due to my daughter having to have her gallbladder out on 9/24 I was with her the whole day at the hospital. She did not come home until 8:30 thurs and fri was spent caring for her and the grand daughter. with all that has been going on with canning and family my weight remains unchanged. I am not working out the way I should and I have not been eating right. I could be down over this but I choice to be upbeat and take it as a blessing that I get not gain 20 pounds. I know once my daughter is feeling better we are going to work out together. so it will not take long to get back on track.
The step daughter has been causing trouble again and I know that in time when her father gives her what she wants she will be out of our lives again. and the dust will settle. It always does I just do not like the roller coaster ride in the mean time. I become the jerk because I choice not to play her game. I know it is a game and as long as I set back she will let her true colors show but in the mean time I watch her dangle that carrot in front of her father only to pull it away in time. My hubby says he knows she "could" be playing games with him but he is hoping that she has changed. I don't trust her because I am the one that has to pick up the pieces after she breaks is heart, and She will kick him hard when he is down. I do not trust her and I will never trust her. She has played this game for so long that she no longer knows the difference any more.
Here I go running on about her and forgetting that there are so many positives. Like my step son had an interview with a fir dept in Va this week and he said it sounded good for him. He also applied for I job with the dept that his dad works with. So two great job opportunities. And than there is my son still in the Navy told us a few weeks back that he asked his gf to marry him and she said yes. They are moving into there apartment next weekend. I am happy for them she is a very nice young lady. SO you see there is a lot to be happy for and I will have happy days ahead.
