Hee Hee I love my Miss Piggy!

Happy Monday everyone! What did you all do? We had a nice but busy one. Grim is putting his rental property on the market. It is a triple decker and he's redone all of it beautifully. They are coming to take professional photos on Wednesday so this weekend was all about last minute projects to get it finished and lots and lots and lots of cleaning. I inhaled so much dust that my lungs are sore today. There is still more to do today but we made some great progress. We also had an outside dinner on Saturday with our good friends. We did a steak and lobster dinner, which was so fun :) Steak for Grim and Lobster for me! Yay!

Back at it today--it's going to be a busy one! I watched my work email come through as a steady stream all weekend. I was good and didn't reply, but I know I am facing a busy day!

QOTD: What is something you have eaten so much of that you are sick of it, now? I used to eat Trader Joe's Turkey Meatballs every day, post op for years. They were tasty and had great protein/carb stats. I still have a bag in the freezer, but I am not interested in them at all.

G'morning everybody!

I have joined the insomniac people on this thread. Up since 1:30 am. We had a call with kids on Sun and DS worries me. Nothing I can put my finger on but am worried. So woke up in the middle of the night thinking of him. If kids knew how much we worry about them they would be more communicative, but they take our worries as meddling.

On Sat I was still feeling the effect of the heat stroke. I did my strength training routine around mid day but I felt weak. Usually when I do the weights I feel strong but on Sat I was dragging. I am used to have a light dizziness when I get up fast, but seeing stars every time I bent down was not fun. Anyway, I went back to bed and just slept most of Sat. I had the tv on news and kept waking up to weird news from DC and falling back asleep. The news were so weird that on Sun I thought I dreamt it all! Sun I felt so much better, and for once took it easy and practically did zilch all day long.

QOTD: maybe my problem is I don't get tired of food. I still love my chicken skewers and other staples I used fresh post-op. The only item I no longer buy is halo top icecream. I was gong ho on them for about 2-3 months but then the after taste got me.

My meals yesterday:

  • B: breakfast burrito, I used jicama wraps
  • L: salsa chicken
  • S:premier protein bar - don't recommend it
  • D:Costco chicken skewers + Quest chips
  • E: rest day

Happy start of the week, everybody.

I don't do Halo Top because I have zero control when it comes to sweets or fake ones. I would eat it til I was sick. It will never come in my house.

Ohhh so sorry you are dealing with the stress and worry of having your kids away. I am already a poor sleeper but I do not think I would even be able to blink if I were in your situation. I'm sure he is okay, but I feel for your stress level. I am completely news obsessed right now--watching CNN on a loop, and refreshing Twitter relentlessly. I just can't believe any of this.

Also, the Costco Chicken skewers are second on my list for food I got sick of eating. The last 2 times I bought them, they just sat in the fridge and went bad.

LOL. I would have eaten all your chicken skewers if you sent them to me.
Yup, us too. CNN on all the time and Twitter refresh. I can't wait for the day I'm not afraid to wake up in the morning and look at the news feed.

Sorry for the insomnia. Hopefully everything is ok with your son; being a parent has to be so tough, especially when you are a good mom like you are!

There is never an end to worrying about our kids. And sometimes them being communicative is a plus, but not always!

Sheila,

I feel your pain! I don't really worry about my daughter. We are very close and we talk about everything. I do worry about my son though. He isn't so good about communicating and I am trying to "let go" and give him space. He is stationed about 5 hours from us, above Seattle on a cutter. He told me last week that he loves me, but it annoys him that every time we talk, that I always tell him to be careful. It hurt my feelings. I told him that I am his mother and that is what we do. We pray and worry about our children! That this world is a crazy place right now.
