Quickie good morning!

L144S, eight pounds is great! Is it from being so busy or have you been eating less?

Dotti, so sorry to hear about your MIL. Will she be OK on her own or will she be coming back to your house? I hope she can manage on her own.

It's a glorious Spring day here although it is still below freezing at night. I finally have a dry basement! There was just no help available for cleanup because of the flooding disaster in the Village so I did it a bit at a time. There are still some ruined boxes down there but they are dry now and can be sorted and pitched later.

My brother David came for a two day visit this week and we had a wonderful time. He was showing off his new car, an Infiniti G35, and we tooled around a lot. I also cooked the most fabulous prime rib I've ever done! That's Dave's very favourite meal and he was very impressed. I've not seen him one on one for years.

Today my respite care worker comes to stay with Harry and I intend to go to town to check out garden centres to see what's new. I just might pick up a plant or six! Sarah was here yesterday and we did a good morning of cleanup. She won't be back until Monday but I'll dab away at a bit more before then. It's Syrup Festival weekend so the weekend will be too busy.

Have a super Thursday and a nice ease into the weekend.

Hi Ruth, hope you had fun at the garden center- what did you buy? I am just about ready to go pick up some stuff, maybe next week- glad you are getting out and about!

MIL is doing OK, she had surgery to set her ankle which broke in 3 places...she apparantly fell/fainted in the grocery store. She will be in a cast and will go to a rehab affiliated with the hospital near her. Then we will see. she is in a 2nd fl apartment, so I don't know. She could come here for a bit, or may need to have homecare until she can get around. Who knows how long...depends on her healing, and strength, which is none too good. We'll have to see how it plays out. She is upset and knows this will be another big hurdle.

Busy day today, but...tada...it's Friday!

got to get moving-have a good one,
dottie

monday!
DH is off for the week, but just left to go visit MIL in hospital...he is not in a good mood! I am "glad" to be going to work- MIL is upset, in some pain, and scared...and she is not too pleasant to be around when she is in a bad mood. He can handle her, and calm her down, but she has a long road ahead.

speaking of long roads. I GAINED 2 lbs in the last 2 weeks, and need to have a Low-everything week. I have a couple of Lean Cuisines in the freezer and will use them for lunch portion control.

Worked outside yesterday, the weather was fabulous-

hi Kel, L, Ruth, and anyone else!

have a good one,
dottie

b-oatmeal
s-hb egg
l-lean cuisine
s-sf yogurt
d-green beans, corn, pork chop

Glorious weather here too for the annual Syrup Festival. I did not eat any pancakes or maple syrup - wasn't even tempted as I cooked them for two days. I think if I were a full-time cook, I'd be skinny. Maybe in my next life......

Sarah is coming to rake and lug this morning. The lawn is greening up and still hasn't been raked! I am sort of sore and tired from all the weekend stuff so will do something less strenuous when she's here - tidy my herb garden and maybe plant some seedlings. I did find pansies last Thursday and will put them in a flowerbox. This is May weather but I know it will get cold again.

Have a super Monday.

Hey Cathy... whatcha doing?

OK here, we are home taking some vacation time that we would loose...so I am painting (the extra bedroom walls) upstairs...DH is painting (watercolor) downstairs. We will meet in the kitchen for lunch!

I put some stuff on Freecycle today...it is helping me get rid of stuff I don't really want, but don't want to have a yard sale, and I just can't throw out! Sometimes the people don't come for the stuff, and it takes a lot of e-mailing back and forth with times and directions and all, but usually it's easy and feels good! Here in LI, the group is big (over 2000) and busy.

Ate well yesterday...had a veggie dinner to undo the damage remaining from easter candy and too much everything else. Today will be high veg also.

MIL stable, but definitely bedridden for a while and will be in a rehab center for 6-8 weeks minimum. Not in any pain now; just grumpy but moving towards being more philosophical.

that's it for me...anybody else out there?

dottie

b-hb egg
s-lc tortilla w/cheese and salsa
l-tuna salad w/celery and cukes
d-turkey& veg soup
NO DESSERT> maybe an apple...or I'll have it if I'm hungry in the afternoon.

I'm out here, Dottie, just real busy trying to keep track of ever changing school testing schedules (my boys have very bizare school start and end times for the next two weeks), baseball and various client work.

Try to have some fun on your week off, Dottie - you deserve it and I'm afraid there might be some dark clouds ahead for you guys in the next few months. Sending healing vibes your MIL's way.

Glad you had a great Festival, Ruth. Take it easy and let your help do their stuff - you can direct!

*waves* Hi, L! Are ya on top of things there?

Hello, Cathy! Thanks for checking in with us.

Well, John is still fairly screwed up and giving MANY mixed messages. I just wish that if he really doesn't intend for things to progress that he wouldn't call occationally and say THOSE things or look at me THAT way at baseball. *sigh*

Ok - gotta run. Boys have to be to school 1 hour early today (yeah, that was real fun getting up and going this morning......)

Kel
