I gaine a lb. Last week was hard. I fell out of my routine. I didn't track my food. My Mom put out my favorite cheese Thursday after the funeral. We had eggplant parmesan and a delicious chicken lasagna. And to boot I am getting my period. I was a hormonal mess yesterday wondering what was wrong, but then I woke up and DUH makes sense. Hoping for a bigger loss next week.

I am in a blah mood. Almost on the verge of tears. For no reason either. I need something to do. The creative part of my brain is yearning for something. I think a trip to the fabric store is in my future. All my craft/sewing supplies are in a closet so in order to use them I need to unstack them and it makes a mess. I need a craft room. We have a 3rd room, currently called Em's spare room-filled to the brim with toys. I'd love to make it a nursery. But if not just a spare bedroom for guests with crafts nicely organized. I love being a SAHM but I need something more. I am not sure what to do. Its just one of those days to question everything I guess.

Enjoy your Sunday!!!!!!!!!

Tonight is the first board meeting for Em's school...I am hoping this group of ladies works out better than last yr. We got some new faces and some oldies. But the old ones are nice sooooo? We'll see.

Tomorrow is the day for my grandfather's services. This is all becoming too routine. I hope I don't have any more funerals for a long time!

I headed to the beach up the road from me yesterday with some friends. Hoping to go there again Friday with Em and my cousin's daughter who is sleeping over tomorrow night.

Its hot today. Summer is here. I am so used to all the rain we were having that I keep forgetting to water my garden and plants. The deer jumped into my garden and ate the leaves off of Em's sunflowers and since they were in decided to mow down my zucchini plants and on their way crunched some others----EErrrrr Hello keep out cute deer ladies-----

A Sad Sunday Gathering....

Yesterday I headed to my Mom's for a sad gathering of what is left of my teeny tiny family. My grandfather passed away yesterday morning. He had a pacemaker put in Friday and my Mom was bringing him home yesterday. She didn't make it to the door before she needed to call 911.

There has been a lot of death in my family over the past 2 1/2 yrs. My Grandmother passed in 2007, My aunt last December 2008 and now my grandfather 6 days after his 81st birthday. He will be reunited with his wife Jessie and daughter Nancy.

My family doesn't show or share emotion much. Its a difficult thing growing up that way. This has been hardest for me. He was like my Dad. He walked me down the aisle. He was always there for us.

He struggled through a lot, he lost his wife suddenly, his daughter to a life long struggle with diabetes. He lost part of his leg and learned to walk with a prosthesis.

I will miss you Poppy!

PS I lost another 3.4lbs this week. Down 6.8lbs total :)

Monday night weigh in

My WW meetings are Monday nights at 6pm. Its the only meeting in town. But I hate weighing in at 6pm. I know it doesn't matter. But I just feel like whatever I eat that day or close to my meeting sabotages me. This is only my second weigh in so its not a problem. I just had such a good day on Tues liked how I felt and looked. I feel it, however, small. I dunno..maybe I'm just thinking about it too much. I have plenty of pts (only good thing about being as over weight as i am) so I am not really hungry. But at night I want to snack...eeeer! I just hope I can make it through this weekend without going over my pts. Any loss is still a loss right? Monday night at 6pm is so far away............

I am bored. Its gloomy and I have no fun money. The hunny gets paid tomorrow and I have some errands to run--looking forward to getting out of the house. CRAZY!!

I am in my second week of WW and doing OK. Although I don't feel like it. I was feeling in the dumps this morning and needed something but refused to snack. Got a little Ho Hum and watched some TV. But about an hour ago I jumped on the treadmill and walked for a mile/21mins. I feel better. I am now eating a late lunch 'Lean Cuisine Ravioli' YUMM!!

Grandma Ethel is doing well. She had her surgery Wed and came through ok. This morning she called my MIL to ask her where her glasses are...LOL...I guess she is the fighter we knew she was. I'll be visiting with some family on Saturday since my MIL's siblings and SIL are in town to see Et. Not a good reason for a get together but a get together none the less.

Holy Hot day!!! I need a pool.

Jim had the day off and we headed to the park and then the movies. We saw Aliens in the attic, it was cute.

I had my first weigh in for WW this evening....-3.4lbs :) I am motivated and hope to keep focused!!

On a sad note, Jim's Grandma Ethel, 87, had a heart attack last night. We were surprised! She isn't your average 87yr old. She golfs and bowls and likes to flirt with the fellas. She even told us once that she is a cougar because her fella is much (MUCH) younger! She hadn't been feeling well and now we know why. She has to have triple bi-pass surgery Wed morning--keep her in your prayers.

Been SO Busy!!

Its been crazy around here. I have been so busy. I have been reading but not really commenting. This week should be quieter so hopefully I'll have some fun posts.

~ I've had enough of the rain. I'm tired of seeing a million slugs a day. The damp smell-gross!

~Packets for school went out. But after the fact, found out after I made a correction to something I left something out-became a mini-issue and I wanted to beat someone! But its over and I am moving on. (Have the same partner as last yr-so I guess I can expect some bumps)

~ Swim lessons are over. In 3wks Em went from being scared of the water, to swimming without her bubble and even jumped into the deep end and swam with her instructor. I can't believe the progress- I am super proud of her! I may look into lessons at the Y this fall to keep her going. She has now added swim instructor to her list of grown up jobs.

~Switched my WW account from online to monthly pass, I am going to a meeting tomorrow night and am hoping I will see some better results. I also plan to do some walking and working out. I mean I do have a great neighborhood for walking, treadmill & universal gym in the basement (however musty it smells)--USE IT WOMAN--right?!?!?!

~ I dyed my hair today, it was way over due. I bought some on sale and I am loving the color-close to my natural (what I remember) color.

I hope everyone is doing well!!
