Day 9 of Dog Walking & Day 8 of No Diet Dr. Pepper
Wednesday, September 26, 2012
Well, I made it through another day without Diet Dr. Pepper. I think this is the longest I have ever gone without drinking Diet Dr. Pepper. There have been a few times where I could have gone for one, but I'm staying strong. The headaches have all but disappeared. I am still determined to continue on without my sodas.
Today we only went for a short walk with the dogs. Between my work, the repairman coming, and my son's classes, we finally went for our walk at 7:30. It was nice out; temp was about 70 degrees. The dogs were happy and enjoyed the walk even though it was a little short.
Today is my youngest brother's 50 birthday. I can't believe he is already 50, especially since I'm only 25. lol Well, in my heart, I'm 25. He's a truck driver and is on the road. According to a comment on his Facebook page, he is up in Illinois where our older brother lives. Unfortunately, my older brother doesn't talk to me anymore and took me off his friend's list, because of his youngest son who basically attacked me on Facebook. I don't have anything to do with this nephew, because he threatened to knife my son several years ago. I haven't spoken with this nephew since he moved back home to Michigan. Anyway, today I also found out that my older brother is going to be traveling to Georgia to visit with his oldest son and grandchildren. It's very hurtful that no one has told me and I probably won't see him. I love my brother. This always seems to be the way it is between us, even as kids he picked on me a lot. You would think that it wouldn't be the case now that we're older, but it still is. My mom used to tell me when I was a kid that he was jealous of me, because he was 5 when I came along. I was born with a dislocated hip and had to wear a brace the first year of my life. I got a lot of attention. At least I still have my sister and youngest brother.
I didn't mean to ramble on. I just had to get it off my chest I guess. I feel so much stress this week. Hopefully, the week will be getting better.
Again, I want to thank everyone for all your support and encouragement. I just don't have time to go to everyone's page right now. I really do appreciate everyone!!!
