The Day is Near

Well we are on the final countdown, six more days until the big day….the wedding.   Actually I just want the day to be here.   My daughter is so stressed out with everything.  She knows that we are here to help but we are kinda walking on eggs when we are around her just trying to keep her calm.  Unfortunately I know this happens to many brides with their bridesmaids, meaning taking in all the complaints.  She has had enough.  Especially with her maid of honor.  She is so disappointed with her and also I.  Just got off the phone with her and she even explained how she is so surprised with all the drama.  I just feel so bad for her.  The only thing  I can say is that they (the few bridesmaids) know me real well and they had much better sense to make sure I don’t hear anything, cause they will certainly hear it from me.  I am just praying that her day goes well with no drama. 

Actually right now I am wearing my shoes, trying to make them more comfortable for Saturday.  But just to be on the safe side, I do have a pair of ballet slippers for the later part of the evening.   I do plan on dancing a lot with hubby.

Also with all the stuff with the wedding and worrying about my daughter, well it has affected me slightly physically.  So with that plus I am still watching that on Thursday at TOPS, I lost another 2 pounds.  I am happy but just want my stomach to settle a bit. 

Honestly that is just about all that is going on.  Oh I did forget though, after the stupid act of banging my head with the hatch from the SUV, last Sunday late afternoon, as I took a sip from my drink, I felt something in my mouth, at first I thought it was some broken glass pieces but it turned out to be part of my tooth.  Yes, now I have a broken tooth, so this Tuesday I have a dentist appointment.  But it doesn’t stop there, this past Wednesday, as hubby and I were leaving for work, hubby notices water and the mat in front of the kitchen sink was soaked.  Seems to be a cracked pipe, thank goodness the plumber was able to come out Thursday morning and replace the pipe and also the garbage disposal.  The old one also had a crack.  At this point I can only laugh about it. 

Like I said hubby and I just want it to be here, so the worrying can stop and we can all have a good time and enjoy the special day.

Need to get dinner done for hubby.


Until later…..

I need to move on

Trying to catch up with everyone and it is a bit overwhelming. 

Still getting things ready for the wedding.  Saturday I go for my final fitting, I should be able to pick my dress up.  I have been stretching my shoes but I still have a backup for later in the evening.  I have my hair appointment made plus my hairdresser talked me into getting at least my eyes done.  That is something that I have never done before.  I hope I am a good, well sort of candidate.  We’ll see what happens.

Not only have I been busy with the wedding, I have also been busy with my son’s surprise 30th birthday party, which was this past Saturday.  He was completely unaware of it and totally surprised.  Everyone stated that they had a good time.  I couldn’t have asked for better weather, which I am so so grateful for.  Majority of the people was outside in our yard.  We set up plenty of tables and chairs, so there was plenty of room and very comfortable too.  Oh and of course we had plenty of food.  I tried my best to send as much as possibly home, but we still had some left over.

Monday I had all my appointments at the hospital.  It all deals with my breasts and lump nodes.  But I am so happy to say that they have cleared me for another six months.  If all is well in six months I can finally go back to the yearly check up.

Today I was home, all because of a stupid act on my park.  To make a long story short, yesterday, last night, I was getting something out of my SUV, had the item in my hands, lean against the car with the item, and went to pull down the hatch and BAM.  I pulled the hatch down right on my head.  Oh my, I thought I saw stars, for a quick moment I felt a bit woozy but it went away.  I did though have a small little lump on my head.  I put cold on it and the lump went down.  But I hardly slept, so I stayed home today.  As a matter of fact, once I am done with this I am going to head to bed a bit earlier.

I did read a few blogs; one in particular was how Marion had kept a food journal for a whole year.  I am like, WOW, that is awesome.  Then I started thinking, I have always done well when I journal.  Then it came to me that I stop if I overeat, don’t eat the right thing, whatever.  Then it dawn onto me, I should just journal no matter what.

So with that I have found a small notebook, and it will have everything that I eat, even if I eat the wrong food.  Lately I have just be somewhat maintaining the same weight.  Gain a pound or two and then lose the same pounds over and over again.  I need to move on.

Until later…………..
