I finally took that sewing class last week. To keep going on it is my next project.

Working on the pictures. Maybe there's an end in sight.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Still fighting weight. Dog ate Fitbit. Got new one today. It does help me stay active. When walking dog last week, I had to tackle him so he wouldn't eat someone. My pinkie was a casualty.

I am down two pounds. That's even after I was on the couch Saturday and Sunday with my hernia bothering me. I didn't feel like eating anything, though. I ate a bit last night and I am not proud of that, but haven't eaten anything yet today. My eating habits are definitely all over the place.

Friday night, Sherry and Helena spent the night. After Helena fell asleep, the 2 of us were up until 1. I surprised them, even though I told them many times that I need to get out some times.

The next morning, Sherry said something about talking about dates the night before. I thought she meant wedding dates and here she was talking about dates that she needed me. I thought I was going crazy because I didn't remember talking about wedding dates.

I'm still not happy with my self and my weight. I did great and then just blew it. I have been getting more steps in (and early). Most do more. I know that I also need to find things to do. I finally broke down and signed up for a sewing class. I also bought another scrapbook. That's a start.

I feel as if I can't remember for anything. It scares me.

I was good on my diet for 3 weeks. Last week I gained .2. Yesterday I ate everything I shouldn't. I need to find something to keep me busy. I need to spend more time with people.

9 pounds in 2 weeks - including FL and getting a tooth pulled. I find myself in a shopping mode and it's time to stop. Maybe after the furniture comes, something else can be bought.

Must find something to do to get out of the house and have more interaction with people.

6.2 pounds down in 2 weeks. Yeah! Disney World was great but the rest of time a little boring. I know to plan Detroit better and to not leave it up to Sherry.

I joined Scale Back AL and Weight Watchers. The combination of everything should do me good. They seem to be able to work well together.

Going to see the mouse this weekend.

Getting some off the boxes unpacked at apartment and throwing a lot away. Why keep what I will probably never use.

Furniture from storage here will be moved tomorrow. We went to get boxes out the other day. I couldn't believe how many boxes there were Sherry's. Furniture from up north will be retrieved next weekend. Tim will be getting rid of a lot of it; he kinda made the decision on his own.

Patrick woke Sherry up yesterday to tell her that I dropped cheese in the drawer and on the floor. Every time he does this I want to respond. I know that I don't want to be down to that level. I just don't have the confidence that this will be a long term relationship. Sherry even mentions that she wants to work at it. I've heard that before from my girls.

We will probably put Sadie down this week. I am opting for tomorrow but Tim is still holding out a bit.

Problems with apartment complex we first applied to. I don't know how or if it will be settled.

it's hard finding a place. I would be happy with a 1-bedroom apartment - Tim seemed to vacillate. I don't think I can completely move forward until we've found something.

Depressed again. I've been in the house isolated since Oct. 9. Sherry and Patrick decorated the tree by themselves. I wanted to make a gingerbread house with the girls and they did it with Patrick's family. I want to go see Christmas lights - others say yes but that's it. I must get out of this rut.

The kids are in NC until Monday; it's too quiet in here. I need to take advantage of this and wrap presents. I feel bad this year. It's been tough financially and I don't have much to give.

Tim said yesterday that I was out of sorts. I think he sensed the depression that I usually go into this time of year. I miss my parents, Shannon left this year, I haven't been out of the house much. Sherry and Patrick put their own tree up and decorated it themselves. Time to climb out.

I will start exercising today. Write down all I eat. Get out more.

Sherry and Helena will be going to North Carolina the end of the week. The house will be quiet without them. I hope to be in better spirits by the time they come back.

I will write out cards this week. Hopefully I will be able to wrap presents. I feel bad that I haven't gotten as many presents as I usually do. I just seem to get farther and farther in debt.

Patrick doesn't want us here and it shows. It's rare that he says anything to me. But he's quick to tell Sherry what he doesn't like about me. Oh well, I will start looking at rentals today.

Still feeling a bit of guilt for not going to MI. I need to move on, to remember to live each day to the fullest.

I sat with Helena last night as she was winding down for the night. She said she didn't want me to have a different house. Outside of about 8 months, I have lived with her for her entire life. I reminded her that she will have a bedroom at my place and that she will spend the night at least one night a week. She likes that idea.

Must work on the bills or we may not be able to get a place. Apartments mean no maintenance, but most won't take Sadie. I know she may not have a long time on this earth, but that's all the more reason for hanging on to her while I can.

I will start back cleaning next week. Tim doesn't necessarily want me to continue, but it's an extra $100 every other week. That goes a long way for me. He's getting a little better with money, but his hands are still like a sieve when it comes to spending.

I texted Shannon on her birthday. She responded and told me about a job she was supposed to start today. 40 hours, OnStar, possible work from home. She was excited. Friday, Harry called me. She is gone. Joey was at home with her. She ate breakfast and laid on the couch. Joey said her breathing was a little funny but he didn't think much of it. When he went to wake her to decorate for Christmas, she was cold. She was miserable for so long; she often took it out on others - Sandy was the brunt of most of it. Sandy was so devastated and felt so guilty. Sarah and I will head up tomorrow. There's not much I can do but I can be there.

The Honor Way house is slowly getting organized. My one-legged and Sherry and Lena sick hasn't helped. Oh, well. And to think I will be doing it again. It's strange to think that I won't have to worry so much about the girls, but I am ready for it.

It will be 1 month on the 9th that I haven't been able to walk. I am so over sitting all day. But, it does get me out of packing and moving more. Sarah has done more than Sherry. Sarah needs her own space back.

I think I am doing a little better with my foot. I have good and bad days - some are spent sleeping and some are spent writing and knitting. I've had time to talk with Helena and I love that time. It's easy to get discouraged when I have so much time to think. But at least Sherry has realized how much I do clean around the house.

My surgery is scheduled for the 9th. I don't know what time yet. So...this week I will be busy trying to get my ducks in a row. I have told Sherry that it's scheduled. Don't really know if it registered with her or not.

I go to the foot doctor today. I know I put off getting my foot operated on last spring because summer was coming. It's still not the ideal time to get it done. I am trying to get my budget in order (which means finding ways to make money), trying to get stuff in order because we will be moving, and trying to figure out if we will be moving with Sherry or finding a place of our own. Lots of important decisions to make.

I definitely haven't been working as hard with Tim here. I feel bad for him though. Sherry is complaining about the house not being as clean but still isn't doing much herself about it.

I am still struggling with sleep and exercise and eating way too much. I am afraid to put my jeans on (or try to). I am scared that they won't fit/ Haven't been this big in a long time.

The light bulb went on when taking the morning meds. The pravastatin was aggravating my back. I stopped taking it and the back has improved each day. I actually had some ambition this morning and got some house work done. I don't want to over-do it and am taking a break.

back still hurts in different spots at different times. Tim was supposed to be here yesterday but is still not here. Instead of asking my nephew if he could put the stull in his basement, he rented a storage unit. I don't think what we have is worth it.

I am still struggling with my back and can't figure out why. The first few days I wasn't bad. It just keeps getting worse. I can't figure it out and I think I am screwing everything up that I started because of this. I even think I am screwing up my girls'
lives.

I goofed up my back again. Sherry's mad at me because I don't "listen". But I ask her to do things and they don't get done. What else am I supposed to do but do them? I am anxiously awaiting for Tim to be here and my divorce to be final. Aug 28 is the court date. I finally got a copy of the 301K figures: I will get $33000. Can't wait. Tim and I can have a place of our own.

Working on getting more jobs. Two are babysitting. There are 3 possible cleaning jobs. Theresa went from paying me $70 to $100 and that helps so much. That right there pays Sarah each month.

I want so much to be able to spend time with friends. I am isolated here and Sarah understands but is busy and Sherry doesn't see it.

Life's been on overload. Every time I charge the battery on the car, it lasts a smaller amount each time. The garage door gives me hiccups. My budget is a mess. My room isn't organized. On the bright side, Tim is coming down and my divorce should be final a month from now. That's something I've been working on for 11 years.

Still not concentrating, but I think it's just my brain on over-load. My car doesn't work. I used Sherry's car, but the check emissions light came on when I went to get Helena. The car insurance is all screwed up. They have full coverage on the '06. I don't know if I have to be in Michigan on Monday. Tim is laid off, but the company has him doing something next week. He is talking about putting everything in storage in Michigan, but I don't think we can swing it. I am really tempted to sell most of it.

we did go up for 10 days. it was relaxing and great to see the family. I wish I could have gone to Glennie, but...it's not in the cards. Sharon said that someone looked at it last Saturday and wants it. Just as well: I had some great times up there, but not the last few times I went. The chemistry was off. Once Mom quit going, it was hard to not see her there.

Sherry has changed her mind so much about this trip up north that it's falling apart fast. Harry and Cheryl won't come to the game because they don't think they can get Wilma up and dressed in time (but they could on Sunday). I think it's Barb because she's coming. Danielle says she's not going up north because there is no room. I will be without a car up there. I'm starting to not look forward to going.

I talked to Sharon yesterday. Same old drama when it comes to Barb and Shannon. Gary said he'll never invite Barb anywhere. I haven't been up since last July when Mom passed. It will never be what it once was ~ that's the part that hurts the most. I know Sharon and Harry will always be there for me. But the drama queens always seem to put a damper on everything. They always want to complain and blame everyone but themselves.

Sherry and I both haven't felt well lately. I feel like my head is in a cloud and like I am not thinking things through. Bad sign! I need to get my lawyer stuff together pronto.

I talked to Jill Sunday. I can't remember how long it's been. It didn't sound like she was drinking, but she's still really depressed. So I suspect she's still drinking. It was still good to hear her.

Patrick, Sherry and Lena are going to North Carolina for the weekend spending it at the beach with Patrick's parents. Last night, the 3 of them were on the couch. Lena told them that she was sad because she wanted me to go with them.

Today, she cried really hard when I told her that Momma wanted her to go to school. She said she would go only if I stayed with her. She's the oldest in her class; the others are way behind her and she's bored. But if we take her out for the summer, she'd have to go back on the waiting list.

My car is fixed. The house is somewhat clean. I didn't have to take or bring home Helena from school. I found out she can take dance lessons right there for $45 a month.

Still need to find ways for us to have fun and learn.

I give up on structure. One thing at a time. And I am learning to put things in God's hands.
1. how tired I am
2. money
3. someone's drinking problem

On a whim, I bought tickets to see Neil Diamond in Louisville for Tim and me. We almost didn't make it, but walked in just before it started. It rained the whole way - to the point where we hydroplaned a few times. Nashville was a parking lot and we almost ran out of gas there. We went into a parking garage across the street thinking parking was $20. It was only $48. I enjoyed it so much. I could tell how religious he is and it made it all the more special.

I still am having too many days where I am exhausted. The good thing about that is that I can honestly say that I haven't been pushing myself. I get my steps in and am active, but I sit for awhile when I need to. I do not stress as much about the never-ending list of things to do.

I still pushed myself over the weekend and I exhausted today. Will go to bed early. I need to set up a schedule for me and Sherry. Yesterday, I was picking up after Patrick all day. I came in and he was putting groceries away. I started helping and he walked away. He washed his car and left the full bucket outside with the hose out and the water on. He took my indoor broom outside and left it there with H's toys outside all night. I am exhausted today and am going to bed early. I will work on a schedule and a chore list tomorrow.

I've been over doing it and my hand hurts. Been so busy I find that I forget some things. My Adderall was lowered so I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not.

Sherry is having a hard time still. I just don't know what to do.

I really thought I was getting better: limiting computer time, exercising more, etc. Then came a lot of big bills I wasn't expecting. The phone calls made to get help or bills lowered didn't work. The past few days I have been exhausted. Time for bloodwork.

Helena's been sick again all week. She went to an audiologist Monday who said that the wax is still there, there may be fluid in the ears, but she didn't see any scarring. Her hearing is not 100%. I took her to the clinic today. She has a sinus infection but the doctor said the left ear looked great. ???

She won't take naps for me and we both end up grouchy by the end of the day. I haven't been able to do my exercises or walk and that doesn't make me happy either.
