Familair Joy

Good morning!  Just a quick check in.  I weighed myself and I am down 7 lbs from 10 days ago.  Yippy!  I have been walking every morning and really trying to watch what I eat.  I would like to be down another 5 by the time my family gets here the end of May.  It's doable :)

I am feeling that old joy that I used to feel long ago.  I spent yesterday with my new Gdaughter and then went and visited with my little old lady friend.  She is quite popular at the new assisted living place.  It's funny to see all the old guys hitting on her.  She seems happy, but misses her hubs.  It hasn't even been a year.  The past few months were just a whirlwind for her, yet she manages to remain happy and optimistic.  What an example for me.  I love old people.......they make me feel so young :)

Today I am going to take my Horder Lady to the movie.  I have a break in the fundraising while they fine tune things.  I listened to a This American Life about political fundraising, kind of eye opening.  Give it a listen.  SO much money!!  I guess it really is what makes the world go round.  I wish it wasn't like that, but I have to be realistic.

Well I hope everyone has had a good week,

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

Now on the job front.......

I just loved this picture!  Me and my Livi Girl.  We were waiting to go to church.  My daughter and son in law were speaking in church.  They did such a great job.  I was so proud.  I spent last weekend being a GeGe.  We went swimming twice.  We spent Saturday morning at the Bird Park.  ASU had a group of students there and they had an exhibit with snakes, spiders and other creeping things.  The kids loved it.  Plus Javi found a duck egg.  They brought it home and named it Parry.  It was funny.

On the job front.  I have found a job.  I am doing fundraising for Mitt Romney.  It's a job and that's all I have to say about that.  So if you see me especially political on FB it's financially motivated.  I do like Mitt, but I try not to be outspoken about it.  The nice thing is I am making the same as I would have basically any where else, but I can work from home (no extra gas needed) and I don't have to go out and get new office clothes.  Plus, I have to chance to make commission.  I figure if there is money to made in this election, why can't I get a little, right??  I really feel this is the right thing for me at this point.  I start today, so wish me well.  I hope it works out.

On the food/exercise front.  BOO!  Not doing as well as I would like.  My body is really feeling the extra weight.  My hips and ankles are so sore when I walk.  I have been walking during the week days.  Yesterday I only went a mile and half, but going to be walking out the door right after I click publish and am going to try to double it.  I went food shopping this morning and didn't buy anything stupid, so that is step in the right direction too.  Just pressing forward.  Hope everyone has a nice day.

A Plan for Me

I am a new GeGe!  Little Sophia Jan Cipolla was born April 15th.  Mom was in labor over 24 hours and pushed for 5.  My son and his wife are overjoyed, as is everyone in my family.  Things are going along pretty good.  I have been feeling better since I started on the antidepressants.  I have walked 3 days in a row.  That is a record.  I got on the scales at the hospital and damn near died.  I am up now 30 lbs.  I have been eating better over the course of the past few days.  Not perfect but better.  That is a step in the right direction.  I am still job searching.  It just seems like it is more then I can do right now.  I have had lots of interviews, no 2nd interviews.  I will not let it get me down.  My life can change in an instant.  I am going to trust and believe that God has a plan for me. 

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