do what matters most

It's been a crazy morning already. Mr. 92's SIL ( my boss ) called me early this morning. Long story short the paramedics have been to his house twice already today. It's only 10:20 AM. I had him in the shower this morning and had to slide him to the floor because he was to weak to stand. So I was one of the calls. It's too bad. They are probably going to have to put him some where to get round the clock care. It's really what he needs, but he will fight it. He is a stubborn and hard headed man. Good luck! I will do what I can. I really could use the extra money right now before Christmas. I am kind of depending on it! Things will work out, they always do.

I have done alittle more Christmas shopping and at least have a plan for the rest. I have really scaled back this year. ALOT! I am glad too. Makes me grateful for the gifts I am able to give. This makes me feel alot better, less stressed. I am in a good place this morning. Feeling good, less anxious. More energy, less boredom. When I am bored is when I eat.

I walked outside in the dark and cold this morning. It felt great. I walked with my buddy and we had a nice talk. I am really eating too many carbs, not enough fruits and veggies. A good food shop has been out of the question this week. Low on cash and I have been eating what's on hand. A girl's got to do what a girl's got to do. It hasn't been horrible. I am pushing the water...alot!! So that's another plus.

No big plans for the weekend. Will try to make a movie, but we'll see what happens. I am sure at some point I will go out to see the Gkids and babysit. I think my daughter has some more shopping to do. Just going to do my best to stay in the moment and enjoy my friends and family. You do the same!

Keep the mood and the food real. Do what matters most!


  1. Sorry to hear about the job. Hopefully something else will pop up.

  2. I too am sorry about the job. I think your last comment is so right on - enjoy the family and the holiday moments that you will treasure forever.

  3. I'm sorry to hear that Mr. 92 is do you handle that part of your job? I think I would get too emotionally invested to be of good service to these people. It takes a special person to be able to do that kind of job and I'm glad there are people like you out there, Dana!

  4. Sorry about the job, wished I even liked fruit. Sometimes things are expensive that are good for us.

  5. Sorry about Mr. 92 and the job....but love your attitude. Hope things start looking up. You're determined and that's the best way to be when times get tough. Hang in there! I'm pulling for you.

  6. I'll be thinking about you in terms of the job and the income. You're right, it will all work out!

    I'm sooo like you....eating high on the carbs!!! I've vowed to try to change that habit as much as I can here at the holidays! I made a big batch of taco soup to eat this week (mostly vegetables...canned veggies, but still better than breads and cookies)

  7. Thanks for stopping by to check on me!

    Shame about Mr 92, I hope it all works out and he manages to keep some of his independence, it must be so hard to accept help if you are strong-minded like that.

    (gotta confess to living out of what rubbish is in my cupboards too,lol!).


Tell me what you think!
