ok, I am discouraged by not being able to figure out all this technical stuff on the site. Can't get a 20# loss picture, can't figure out how to get my virtual fat & skinny selves on my page, can't figure out how to post the Spark quote on my page to comment on them..........
At least the pound that found me last week has been banished, hopefully his brother will go right on down the train tracks with him this week and I will reach another milestone in weight loss, leaving another decade behind.
Wouldn't it be nice if leaving years behind could be so easy? I would take about 10 away from my Mom so she could live the next 10 years without her Parkinson's' and related dementia. I never know whether to be happy for her or just sit down & cry. And what will happen if I have the same health problems, with no kids and my husband likely to die before I get ill, who will hand me the tools to finish my life out somewhere?
And, speaking of that, I saw the beginning of a show on PBS about brain training, sounds like it might be good news for folks suffering from brain diseases as they can literally watch how a brain functions. Some day a genius, or just plain luck guy, will find a way to tie those loose connection back together again!
I am talking to a lawyer on Wednesday about what to do with our mom, nursing home - what does that entail, making her a dependent and what that would entail, what do we (my sister & I ) who have legal, health and moral "custody" of our mother's rights decide about mom how & where will live the rest of her days. A dilemma I am sure some of you have already faced.
motivated - I started a survival weekend/vacation "bag" this weekend. The key is the bag has to have the stuff in it and only half the stuff made its' way with me because I forgot to pick out a bag!!. Luckily, was only gone 2 days so tracking food, etc. was pretty easy. I NEED THAT BAG!!!!! A briefcase would work but I want it to be something that says - goals - happy - hmmm maybe I can make one, I have a purse if altered would be good. Need a spot for journal, pen, - I better use that purse I have and see how it works. Since it is a little darker maybe I can brighten it up with a charm or ribbon.
Think my reward for leaving the next decade-ville is going to be a journal for tracking while I am gone. Just a simple notebook, but something I can have all the time in my BAG! I also need a folder i think for info I need to contemplate or read.
ok - I should do some work today. Will be back later to finish, i hope lol
