Well the long awaited day has come. My late hubs was a Redskin fan. Excuse me, super fan! My son is now a Super Redskin fan. In April his sister gave him 2 tickets to the Cardinal vs. Redskin game. Today is the day. Everybody is meeting at my house. I am thinking I will make a big pot of spaghetti. Then I will send the big kids off to the game and the Gkids and I travel the 30 miles back to their house for a sleepover. I am going to have a long walk in the morning out at my daughter's. Then I will ride back into town with a friend. I truly have the best friends ( and sisters who are friends ). I will still make it to work on time! I love early mornings!

Posted an ad for the elder services in a couple of places. We will see. I am doing the word of mouth thing too. I have lots of satisfied customers....yes, some of them are still Families. I can always tell when someone is missing their mother, father or their hubs. They will give me a call and we will tell stories about the family member. Have a good laugh, maybe a good cry. It's great to be able to there for people during an extremely hard time in life. Really, this has been about the longest it's been that I haven't had a old people sitting job. Oh well. I will keep on keeping on. Actually, is there is no other choice. Well no other good choice.

Still no food comas. AMAZING! Simply amazing. Holding steady at 196. Steady being the key word

Keep the mood and the food real...........


  1. "Steady as she goes, my pretty!"
    Aye be gar!
    Only two more weeks till Talk Like A Pirate Day!
    Sept 19th -- but why wait?
    Hope your Labor Day Holiday is all that!

  2. Hey, I'm an old people! Come sit with me :) Your early morning walks sound great. I can't wait for the weather to break so I can get some in myself. I like that time much better than late afternnon. Enjoy the holiday weekend.

  3. I wish I lived by you so I could join you.

    Being with the Gkids should be fun as always and you are such a good woman Dana that it is no surprise that you have such wonderful friends and sisters.

  4. Sounds like it will be a fun day for everyone - and I agree with what Katie said - you ARE such a kind and giving person that it's no wonder people are willing to do for you!

  5. Thank you for your support and kind words. The simplist things mean so much.

    Glad you got to spend time with the family. I'm so excited that football season is starting back up. I'm ready for some football.

    Yay for no food comas and holding steady. I love your parting words "Keep the mood and the food real..........." AMEN!

  6. Well, being from Dallas Cowboy country, kind words about the Redskins are impossible. I'd be run out of town on a rail!

    Just keep things steady and keep envisioning what you want your future to hold. It will be here before we know it.

    Enjoy your wonderful family. And have a great weekend.

  7. How fun to overnight with the GK! We are super Vikings fans so I know just what you are talking about. Super fans!

    I could have used your expertise in elder care with my dad...
    Enjoy your weekend!


Tell me what you think!
