Mom is sleeping & my laundry is ganging up on me. I don't have a laundry room, so all my dirty clothes are strewn all over the family room. I try to get it done when my Mom is napping , so that she doesn't trip over anything. Did not sleep well ... Read more

Mom had a good night AND a good day...she was happy & upbeat. We sang & danced to some old music that she loves. I was happy that my weight was still down, in fact it was .4 of lb. lower than yesterday. At one point today, one of the songs that ... Read more

Even though the temps were rather chilly, I felt the need to get outside today, so I bundled up Mom & took her with me to the store to get some groceries. I used the wheelchair shopping cart. Mom loved it & we entertained the entire store w/ our... Read more

Mom woke from her nap, dancing & singing (but holding on to me for balance). We both had a good dinner. Right now I am sitting on the couch with her. I have the channel on TV that plays Big Band/Swing music. She is in her own little world, has h... Read more

Even though I KNOW not to try to explain things to a drunken person or a person coming out of anesthesia...why did I think that I could explain anything to my Mom today. She changed channels in the middle of our conversation...she was not sure ... Read more

Woke up feeling so rested. My alarm didn't go off & Mom had a good night. I had to go to a Poll training session this afternoon that was really irritating. Many of the people were very rude & the facilitator didn't have a clue how to handle such... Read more

It is almost 11:00 & this is the 1st chance I had to get on my laptop. Mom had sort of a pity party kind of day. I gave her a shower, which she hates as she always worries about falling. She took a short nap & woke up confused. I went to an ado... Read more

Did not sleep real well last night. Had to attend a funeral today (neighbor's father) I made it a point to have a good healthy breakfast, as I figured that the food at the funeral reception would be a little sketchy. I had once slice of wheat br... Read more

Got on the scale last night & said OMG...I've gained 4 lbs. I must have run a marathon in my sleep as when I got on the scale this morning...it was smiling right back at me. That is probably a good reason why people don't get weighed every day. ... Read more

Wednesday, February 08, 2012      5 comments

Recently I have found myself...talking & trying not to preach about SparkPeople to those that need it. It is difficult...when you have a good thing, you usually want to share it with others...but sometimes they are not READY to get excited about... Read more

Messed with our schedule today (not always a good idea...). My neighbors/friends invited me to lunch today at Bob Evans, so I woke Mom about an hour earlier than she usually gets up & we went to BE. Mom was a little overwhelmed & confused by eve... Read more

No, I didn't go there to eat, but I thought that it would get your attention...haha Was deep in sleep when that alarm clock went off...probably a slight case of the Sugar Blues. Last night I was at a friend's house & she almost apologetically to... Read more
Smiley Scale...

I know that most programs tell you NOT to weigh yourself EVERY day...but it works for me. Yesterday was weigh-in-day, but this morning, my scale "smiled" at me again & I "parted" with another pound (Down 22 lbs. since Dec. 4th) When I read my bl... Read more
