life changed.

I had a wonderful day yesterday. Had a great visit with my friend. Her house is totally torn apart. I couldn't live that way. Her daughter, SIL, and 5 Gkids are moving in with her. The daughter is redecorating, very slowly. I felt so bad for her. Her room was a disaster, she likes to save things, anything. Mucked that room out! Took us 4 hours. She has had a stroke and can't do a whole lot, but she sat and visted with me. It was the greatest feeling of acommplishment to leave that room better, much better then I found it! Went to Red Lobster for lunch. Ate well. Only one biscuit and then just chicken and some shrimp. yum.

This Bday week is almost over, thank goodness! Going with a friend to the movies, going to see Julie and Julia. Finally! Then for some frozen yogurt. I can only hope to maintain again this week. Walked my 3 miles, and I am sure to get some bike riding in over the weekend, since it is my only form of transportation. It wouldn't be that bad, it's just still so hot here, 104 today.

I will probably be without a car for the weekend. No problem. I am not happy about it, but it's not going to kill me. I might be without it for even longer. Till I can figure some way to pay for repairs. I put a hold on all my credit cards a couple of moths ago. Anyway, not going to let it get me down. More biking is a good thing. Plus my son is very generous with his car, so it's not too bad.

I remember were I was 8 years ago today. I am sure we all do. Life changed that day for everyone.

keep the mood and the food headache this morning. No advil last night!


  1. Those Red Lobster buscuits might be the most evil food ever made...I can't beleive you stopped at 1!

    Remembering 9/11 too...eight years ago? hard to believe.

  2. Im so glad you had a great day, youve been needing one!

    I cannot bring myself to remember 8 years ago today. Still crushingly sad.

  3. It sounds like the day was really healing for you.

    It's sad to remember 9/11, but I hope we never forget.

  4. What a rough road your friend has ahead. Glad you were able to spend some time (not to mention cleaning effort) there. Yumm on those Red Lobster biscuits.

    I like what Diane said about 9/11 - sad to remember but I hope we never forget!

  5. I'm so glad to hear you were headache free.

    Those red lobster biscuits are just sinfully delicious. Good on you for managing to eat just one.


Tell me what you think!
