This beautiful woman is my friend Ms. Paris. She is 87 years old. She attends Silver Sneakers (old people's fitness class) 4 times a week. She drives her own car. Still hits up Goodwill every half price Saturday and ALWAYS wears a different hat to church. EVERY WEEK. Last week it was a gold hat with a bow as big as her head. At the age of 50 she went back to school and got a PhD in Psychology. She then went to work on the Big Island of Hawaii and was the island's 1st school psychologist. She raised 6 children and has been married 5 times. Once to a man 30 years younger then her. She brought him back from Hawaii. I love to hear her stories ( she has lots ). They are mostly about the men in her life. She said that the younger women would ask her how she was getting all the younger men. She told them "I've been a girl a long time, pay attention, you might learn something". If she can go back to school at 50....what's stopping me?? She is a brave woman. She's a character. I love characters. I am one! I am not having a stellar eating start to my week. I have been extra hungry and munchie. UGH! This too shall pass. I really need to go food shopping. When I feel like this I almost don't want to have any food in the house. except just what I am going to eat that night. I am pushing the H20. My walks have been less then 3 miles for the past 2 days, i have an injured buddy, so she can't walk to far. My knee and hips could use alittle rest as well.
Going to a buffet at a pizza place for a friend's kids Bday party. I think I will eat before I go. The Gkids will be there too. I am extra tired the past few days as well. I am going to listen to my body. Sleep is always a good thing. Since I don't sleep in, my "sleeping in" is going to bed early. Really early! Cuts down on the night time eating too.
Keep the mood and the food real...........Do you consider yourself a character?? Why??
