May 1 - 7, 2011
I saw something similar to this over at Empty Nest. Every week she gives a brief update of her week. Not only is this entertaining, but a great way to keep a diary of sorts. I asked her if she minded if I
'stole' borrowed her idea. With her permission, I give you My
This week started out in grand fashion because my whole family was together for my oldest daughter's baptism.
This day was the highlight of my week therefore it required it's very own post. Read all about it here.
After such an exciting and blessing filled Sunday, then came Monday..... Monday's tend to have a life of their own. Can we just skip Monday, please? Especially the ones when you're no longer needed at your job!
This little girl has graced our home since August 2010....in a month or so she will be leaving us :(
I'm almost hesitant to get out of bed Wednesday wondering what 'fun' this day will hold.
What it held was seeing a picture of a dear friend holding her newborn first grandchild!
|Welcome to Devin Brian Chase|
I can't even tell you how happy I am for her. Since our children have grown we both have longed for this day! Wednesday, May 4th will be a day she will NEVER forget. She won't be losing that smile for a while.
Then this handsome young man brought a smile to my face
My firstborn son called me just to chat! Which I happily did for about an hour :) Yup, it was a good day indeed!
Could Thursday top the events of Wednesday? Doubtful....cuz I had a doctor's visit to endure. A visit to the doctor is NEVER enjoyable at my age. I stay away as much as possible.
I received some good news and bad news...which do you want first? I always like the bad news first, then I leave with good news :)
So first the bad news: I really HAVE to start exercising faithfully. Yes, that IS bad news! Exercise and I don't get along at all...ever!
So why you ask?
My cholesterol numbers were a "bit elevated...nothing to worry about" says dear doctor...........
Ok, when should I start worrying about it, when it is dangerously high?
When I have to go on meds so you can get a kick back from the pharmaceutical company?
No thanks, I think I'll work on lowering that number now, thank you very much.
I say I need to exercise, cuz I already eat very well. Limited sweets & red meat, rarely a soda, lots of fruits and veggies BUT I'm lazy to the core. I'd much rather sit here and blog, surf, waste time...not push-ups, leg lifts, sit-ups...yuck, yuck, yuck. So yea, I've got to do something about that....maybe tomorrow :)
Friday was cook out and game night with these beautiful people. We played a new card game we learned from my daughter's boyfriend calld "Three". It is a lot of fun.
The problem is we stayed up until midnight. UGH. I'm way too old to keep doing that :)
I ended my week with a trip to Walmart with my sis-in-law. We have been talking about taking a monthly trip together for a while now. I say "trip" because it is 80 miles away. Can you "rural living"? With the price of gas hovering at $4.00 a gallon, we are looking for ANY way to save. Instead of "bathing with a friend", I decided to "travel with a sis-in-law". We had a grand time.
What was the highlight of your week?
