We had a lot of fun with Mom and Dad at Mom's party last night. It was VERY low key but it sure is nice to get together. I gave mom and dad the gift "The Top 60 Reasons We Love Mom (and in Dad's case The Top 60 Reasons We Love Dad) on Her 60th birthday." They both seemed to really enjoy reading what the siblings wrote and hopefully the book will bring them some joy as the years go by.
This weekend I got hooked into some of Harold's extended family blogs. So, a shout out to Devan and Jackie, Collette and Brent, Blaine and Angie, Mike and Kathy and even Janet! I will of course be lurking on their sites as I find blogs so much more fun to surf than anything else on the internet.
Our whole family fell asleep watching a video last night. I woke up at 4:30 a.m. on the futon with a horrible backache, went up to bed, still didn't sleep well until about 45 minutes before I woke up and the deep sleep put me into a major fog. So, I am feeling a bit slow this morning.
I have some serious confessions to make in regards to WW but I am not sure I am ready to make them yet. Suffice it say, I have eaten this past week like I used to. I even had one day last week where I didn't feel good. It was the same type of feeling I used to get every day almost, the one where my sense of overall well being was gone. This week has been a good reminder as to why I follow WW even when I am not losing and only maintaining. I like having the sense of well being, of eating to live and not living to eat. But, I guess the 20 year habit of living to eat has been rearing it's ugly head.
Happy Sunday to all. I do enjoy Sundays, they are busy but this kind of busyness beats a Saturday cleaning jag hands down. By the way, Harold got into a "de-junking mood" yesterday. (His words.) He was throwing things out right and left. He kept asking me, "Do you use this?" "How many of ________ do you need?" And my personal favorite, "Can I throw this out?" and when I respond by saying NO he says, "Okay, how many times in the past month have you used it?" So I lost it and told him "If you are in a de-junking mood, then de-junk your own stuff and leave mine the heck alone!" Good times.
