This last weekend was very busy. I had birthday shopping to do (for my mom), a repairman had to come Saturday to fix the ice machine in the fridge (a gear broke that I guess makes the ice come out the door into your glass, and who wants to open the door when you can just stick your glass up there and get fresh cubes, right?), house cleaning, and grocery shopping. In between all that I tried to get some bike riding in but didn't get in as much as I wanted.
Yesterday was my mom's birthday so my son and I took her out for lunch. He had to work that evening so we decided a lunch would work. She enjoyed it, and after lunch we came home and had a little cake. I'd bought a lemon cake since I'm not much of a cake baker. I would have rather bought the Italian Creme, but she's having a problem with diverticulitis and nuts are not on the menu. Besides, I would have been tempted to eat more cake if Italian Creme was in the house. lol
I'm off work for two weeks! Yay! I love being home, and I love my mom, but sometimes I wish I had my own space. G*d, I can't believe I used that word - space. My ex told me that once, that he just "needed some space." Of course, he chose to have an affair in his space, but still that word doesn't sit well with me. Anyway, when I'm home, mom wants us to spend a lot of time together watching movies or TV shows. At her age, these are the things she most likes to do. And I like to watch some things sometimes, but I also like to blog and listen to music and knit and draw. The blogging is what she doesn't understand and I think she gets a little jealous of me sitting at the computer. Maybe she just feels shut out, I don't know.
Blogging is like breathing to me right now, and my blog "family of friends" is a support system like no other. You guys always say just what I need to hear. You make me laugh and cry. You make me try harder to be a better person. You make me want to grow veggies and cook. Did I mention you make me laugh?! And even if I don't leave a comment, know that I am stopping by and loving what I'm seeing!
On the weightloss front, I've lost 1.8 lbs since my last weigh-in! Woo Hoo! It's coming off so slowly but I have to remember two things: 1) I am 52 and sorta dealing with the hormonal luxuries of the older female, lol, and 2) I'm doing this the healthy way this time. I'm not starving myself. I eat food! I'm doing cardio everyday. I'm feeling stronger and happier this time around which makes the journey so much more worthwhile!
Today, I hope you giggle and snort. And don't forget to drink your water! (after all this brain work, I couldn't even come up with a title, lol)
