What’s Been Going On (An Update)

Boring title, eh? I’m kind of out of it so hang on and be patient.

Presently, I am taking care of Himself and The Boy who both had their wisdom teeth removed yesterday. Today is a little better probably because they are sleeping a lot from taking pain meds. (yea, meds!). Besides taking care of them, I had to bring Isabella to school and my mother-in-love to the doctor. The nap I took this afternoon was delicious.

I bright spot in my life was my recent meeting with another blog buddy! I was so excited to meet “S” and we had such a wonderful time. She was traveling through my state and stopped on the way home so we could spend a little time together. It is wonderful to not be disappointed when meeting people I have know virtually for years. I have been blessed in this department. S warm and intelligent and someone I would be proud to call friend.

As for Bells, school is a lot different for her this year and she had a rocky start. She seems to be calming down and enjoying herself. She is with neurotypical students in the beginning of the day and for specials. How I love that kid – even though she can be a brat…

As of last Friday, I have now lost 35 pounds! Weight Watchers is a very good plan if you follow it. I also rejoined the gym where my son is a personal trainer. Other people pay and get a half hour. I don’t pay and get grumbling and maybe fifteen minutes. Remind me of why I let him live here?

This past year I have taken up knitting and crocheting. My gram taught me when I was a child but I didn’t have the patience. In knitting, I have made a number of scarves and prayer shawls. A prayer shawl is one that you pray over the person you are making it for. I now give them for baby and bridal shower gifts. They seem to be appreciated.

Hmmm, what else…I really want to be here blogging. Really! It’s that same old thing, though. I don’t want to write about nothing. I’m popping in to keep in touch.

Blessings to all, g

  1. It is so good to read your blog and it certainly isn’t the same old thing! The love you give your grand daughter will be remembered by her forever. I think my “Nana” was one of the most influential people in my life and every time I knit, I think of her. She taught me to knit, making me promise not to tell anyone, as I threw the yarn so undelicately, for lack of a better word, and she didn’t want that motion connected to her. And I remember how proud you were when your son passed his test and became a personal trainer! And the fun and caring between us can never be dismissed as the same old thing. You are so special, I have such love and admiration for you, I hope you know that!

    Have a wonderful day and I hope you are using bags of peas on your patients!

  2. Eeyww, I remember getting my wisdom teeth pulled – thank goodness for mamas who take care of us!
    Congrats on your weight loss – I know, KNOW how hard it is. I am doing WW as well, but just on my own as I can’t afford the meetings right now. It’s much better doing it while going to meetings I think, but at least I am trying to keep track of my points and stay on track (unless I stress out like today and eat all the chocolate covered peanuts that I’d put away to last me all week long… sigh.) You are an amazing gal who loves her little granddaughter so dang much… and the rest of your family too.
