Good morning! Y'all ready for the next installment of my life? Welcome to Gail
First things first: Yesterday was much easier being on program. I ended the day eating 25 points worth of food. Much better! I still didn't drink all the water I should but I did better there also--about 48 oz. worth. I figure each day will be easier and before long I'll have a long string of OP days again.
Secondly: We're not going to Va. Beach for the weekend to visit parents. This time Wayne's work did not get in the way. Wayne's Dad called us and said he has plans and for us not to come. Wayne is a little upset. Now Wayne doesn't begrudge his Dad going out and having a good time (fil square dances, goes out to lunch, dinner, movies, and does church-related activities). Wayne would rather his father be out with his friends and not sitting home by himself. However, my fil is a bit of a "romeo" <chuckle> and has had a string of girlfriends for quite a few years now (since Wayne's mother passed away about 8 years ago). He's even talked about remarrying with some of them but it never worked out. And Wayne doesn't even begrudge his Dad a second marriage. However, my fil has only known his latest girlfriend since New Year's Eve and when he called last night to tell us not to come this weekend he started talking marriage with this lady. All we know is her first name and that "she's a real nice lady." (that was a quote from fil and that is all we hear) And my fil is not making any moves for us to meet her although he's met her four grown children (she's 64). How can we meet her if he tells us not to come down? Anyway, Wayne is a little upset with his father and I think he's going to call him this morning from work and try to talk with his Dad. Not to talk him out of doing anything--just to tell him how concerned we are...because isn't this kind of sudden?! Granted my fil is 77 years old and perhaps he feels the need to move quickly...if you get my drift?!
I'm not even going to go into what my mother said to me when I called her on the phone last night to tell her that we weren't coming...nothing bad really...just got me a tad annoyed last night as well. Oh well...
Soooooo...I'm still taking tomorrow off from work since it was approved and because Heather isn't work (she's starting a new job on Monday) we're going shopping!
Not that I'm looking for anything in particular; but I'll help her find something new to wear on her first day at her new job. And of course, we'll go out to lunch...and yes, I plan on being on program.
, I think its a good idea at this time to start going to WW by yourself on Saturdays. You might find you like going by yourself--it could be a little bit of "me" time. I'm sure that when Bill sees how well you're doing on program that might just spur him to go with again. Show him that the plan can be worked no matter what the plans for the day is.
, Wayne has the beginnings of Glaucoma also. He's not putting any drops in his eyes (like his dad) yet--he's also stabalized...but he has to go to the eye doctor every 3 months. He goes again on the 9th of March and not only are they going to give him that test but there's some kind of new x-ray machine the eye doctor has now and he's going to do something else. I really don't know what I'm talking about but I am going with Wayne to this next visit so perhaps I'll learn more. AND...a big congratulations to you on losing a whoppin' 2 lbs. this week!
That's great! WEIGH TO GO!
, this must be the time that everyone is going to the eye doctor! As you know (because you've just finished reading this novella) that we're not going down to see the parents. I'll know by mid-morning if Wayne will have to work. I hope he has the weekend off. We'll have nothing planned but perhaps that will be a good thing--Wayne is a little tired from waking up at 5:30 am every morning and I'll let him sleep in until....6:00am!
Only kidding--I'll let him sleep later than that! Hope you're feeling better today.
, oh my goodness! A little girl lost! How long was she out there by herself? I know everyone must've been so worried! Bless her heart...and bless y'all for finding her.
Okay...I guess I had better go get ready for work. My in-box is about to topple over if I don't do something about it!
Y'all take care...
