Not gonna lie....

Monday, March 04, 2013

Well...heck...not going to beat myself up, I guess. Still at 151.8. Stretching myself way to thin trying to do stuff for my mom at her house (she is living back there alone again). My sis that wants me to visit with her at her home a couple days per week and my own responsibilites.

We did all go to the Casino a couple of weeks ago just to do something 'different'. My mom wanted to quit after she lost $20 on a slot machine (which I don't think she really understood how it worked, she may have walked away without asking it for the 'payout' ticket...thinks it is still supposed to spit out coins).

I have had what I have coined as, "The Casino Cold". Figured it would happen. Despite wiping down the machine I park myself on with alcohol (yeah, I sure did!) Been sick as heck for a couple weeks. Think it is a basic head cold which 'happened' to coincide with another diverticultis event. Finally even broke back out my juicer, had veggies out, ready to go when I instead just reached for a bag of cookies. What the heck? Asked hubs to quit bringing home that stuff, but he thinks he is doing me a favor when I am 'sick', bless his pea pickin' heart! haha

Told myself today is the day I would feel better, eat better and at least do some workout (Have not done boo the last 7 days!) but woke up more congested then ever and ready to go back to bed after two hours out of bed.

OMG.....my poor old mom, she asked me what my Hubs wanted for his Bday next week while we were on the phone the other day. My husband jokingly piped up 'a purse', since I was browsing on ebay. I thought my mom would get the joke and said, "A purse..haha..thats a joke". She has since been insistent she wanted to get to Walmart to pick him up a purse and 'what do they call those when they are made for men? Where would I get one?" I've told her repeatedly..."THAT WAS A JOKE..he doesn't want a purse!" But it is stuck in her head. I finally told her the one 'he wants' is on ebay for $600, that shut her up! hahah I'm so mean.

Supposed to be in 50's and higher here next week, so maybe with that and some sunshine I can jump start back into life!

SO hope you all are well!!!

    It's nice to see that you are still around...I miss you. I have been MIA myself lately. I am sick with a sore throat and bronchitis.... I hope that you are feeling well soon. I think that I will feel better as soon as the sun comes out and the weather warms up. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    My heart goes out to you, battling a cold myself. Way to keep the weight down despite all that is going on.

    You made me laugh. You reminded of the commercial where the man is carrying a European man bag. emoticon
