Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
We also have iced for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...
Made it through yesterday after a bad night sleep.. my back started kicking in again .. *sigh* .. but I took a couple of Aleve before leaving for mom's .. :)
I am happy that I finished the balancing of July .. and now I'm working on the balancing of August .. and am happy that I'm making progress ..
Otherwise I had a pretty lazy morning .. and we had "leftovers" for lunch .. I ended up having 2 cheddarwurst, on buns ... yum yum .. and then ice cream for dessert .. :) I also had 2 pretzel poppers... yummmmmmmmmm
None the less I was quite full after lunch .. and well -- full belly .. heavy eyelids .. lol .. Thankfully 12:30 rolled around, and I went upstairs to get ready to go by mom .. I didn't have anywhere to stop beforehand, so I could hang around the house until it was time to leave, but I was really dragging when I left .. My back was in full bloom, and my energy level just wasn't .. but I took a couple of Aleve before leaving, and took Beauty .. she's easier to climb in and out of ..
I got to mom's and we played puzzle .. :) .. she got a whole new carton of puzzles .. and we played one .. and finished it .. :)
Guess which one I picked to do .. :) lol lol
Hubby had told me that she got her delivery .. but I partially played dumb, so she could "surprise me" .. lol lol .. but it was fun seeing all the picks that she made .. :) We had a fun afternoon, but I felt "full" from my lunch .. and was a bit uncomfortable .. After we finished the puzzle, we just sat in the living room and just talked .. With the temperature getting more uncomfortable for her; she's getting less and less enthusiastic .. I did tell her about my trouble's at work .. and she surprised me .. she didn't get herself all upset because I was getting upset ... but it felt good .. I hate holding things back from her, because it affects our conversations when I have to think about what I am saying ..
We had a wonderful time ... but I was really tired when I left .. We talked about this Thursday when I come over to help her with the card party .. and set up and hostess the ladies .. :) I'm planning on bringing over my coaster squares so I can work on closing them up ..:) and mom has a banger of a puzzle started, and I can always play with that as well .. :)
When I left, she came over and gave me the biggest (softest) hug, and thanked me .. I asked why ?? and she said "just because you're the best daughter ever" .. Okay -- I'm already emotionally unstable .. it took everything in me to not have a meltdown right there .. lol ..
I came home, and we had a snacky dinner ... mine consisted of 6 pretzel poppers, and a few spoons of gelato .. my lunch was still with me .. :) and I went up and started working on August balancing ..
I made myself a cup of cammomile tea ... (sleepy time tea); to drink before I was planning to go to sleep .. and thankfully it worked !!! :) YAY !!!!!
This morning I will probably work again on August .. Hubby is gone for the morning ... his Monday morning Wii bowling begins today .. and not sure what this afternoon is going to bring .. but I'm open for suggestions when hubby comes home .. :)
And tomorrow thinking of meeting up with hubby downtown tomorrow. We take separate cars, so if I'm not doing well, I can just exit stage left ..
I'm a bit meloncholy today; as this is the 1 year anniversary of losing my little girl .. I can't believe it's been a whole year, and while I would give anything to have her back .. I wouldn't want her back in the same condition she left .. that day is still way to vivid in my memory .. that part of my heart that she took isn't closed yet .. Some day we'll get another, but not yet ..
Today will be a good day .. and I wish you the best... enjoy your day no matter what it throws at you..
