Okay, today is Saturday, and all we do is just spend time together the hubby and I. This is a good thing. He plays on his computer, and I play on mine. LOL We have become Face Book junkies. I like the games. He likes the jokes and talking with friends. Of course he has his own blog too for his music. Yes, my husband is a musician. He has recently formed yet another band. He was looking for a drummer when I happened to find one believe it or not in Menard's. He was referred to me to install our basement door. How cool is that, and he's an excellent drummer, and a very personable guy (and he's cool). Then there's Dave's bass player he has finally found, and how you ask? Well, on the Internet of course!

Here's what they look like. Well, maybe a better picture down the road. Yes, we have Rock & Roll here all the time, and just so you can get a little glimpse of what practice is like I've added a video. Enjoy my friends! Soon they'll be out on the road, and you might have to pay to hear them jam. Thanks for listening. ROCK ON!

Nutrition Clinic day!

Well, two and a half more pounds bit the dust! It may not be much, but at least it's better than gaining. I've been going to therapy for my back lately, so at least I'm able to finally get some exercise in. Maybe now the weight loss will go quicker. Woo Hoo!

Some tips I've found regarding eating habits are an all "NO WHITE" diet. Now if you're like me and you love your bread and pasta's on your semi-cheat days (and you have to have those), they sell bread that's only 35 calories a slice. If I crave that piece of toast go ahead and have "1". It'll cure the craving. Also, remember the old saying, "It's not quantity it's quality". THAT'S TRUE! Shorten that quantity and you'll live a much happier life. I've also learned that Aldi's now sells FIT & ACTIVE. Great products with the dieter in mind. I get their spaghetti, some snacks, ice tea, and many other things. Also, I do not cook with oil anymore! Big no-no! I cook with the spray butter now. I also use that spray when I cook vegetables and only fresh vegetables or frozen - NO CANS! Cans have too much sodium. The spray butter flavor gives it the flavor and no calories. Very cool. I also recently found salt that is 1/3 less in sodium. I don't remember the store I bought it at, check back and I'll let you know. Also very cool for you women (and me) that feet and legs swell due to water retention.

Well, there's a few tips! Next visit is in three weeks. Talk to you then!

So, is this it? Is this all there is? You grow up in a loving family, you go to school, you graduate, you have friends, you move make new friends, you grow up, find a job, have a few boyfriends, fall in love, it doesn't work out, try again, have a few kids, go to work, and then more work, you lose your family as you know it, and now you've stepped into their shoes, and your children are in your shoes and you're waiting... waiting... for what?

If that all there is? School, Work, Marriage, Babies, Work, Raise children, Work, and now here I sit all alone. Husband goes to work. I'm sleeping. I get up I'm alone. Can't work do to disability, so I'm here alone trying to make ends meet, trying to get better, trying to keep the house clean, cook, do all the shopping, laundry, keep busy while I'm alone.

Husband comes home from work. A few words exchange and then silence, but every now and then "I love you". "Love you too". Silence. Every day. Day in and day out. Weekends too. He has his life. He has his friends. I have me. Silence. Every night I sit here alone. Every day I sit here alone. Children are grown and have their own lives now. Although I do like to be alone sometimes, but where's the excitement I use to have. Where's the fun I use to have? That something to look forward too? Where is that or do I just wait, and wait some more like everyone else. Waiting for heaven or hell or to crack the mystery.

I use to have a lot of friends, but they all live in the city now. I'm here by my river where I said I'd always be some day, but I'm alone. I thought I was going to be so happy here, but I don't think I am. Where's my friends? Where's my good times? Time to go back to work maybe, but who will have me? Try to do what's right, but it just doesn't pan out to the way I hoped it would. Now, my goal is to loose weight. I've done this before. My life and my weight are on the same roller coaster, but this time it's hard. Very hard! I know if I could just loose the weight I could get back to work. I'd feel better. I wouldn't be so sick all the time. I know I've always been a sickly person, but never anything serious. I'm my own worse enemy I guess.

Going to the Nutrition Clinic tomorrow, and we'll see if I broke that broken record. I sure hope I get passed that mark because if I did then I'm on my way. Woo Hoo. Good job me!!! I hope! I think a pat on the back might go here, but I'll wait until tomorrow. Until then...

Well, good night Dolly. Good night my friend. I'll be your friend. I'll be your very best friend and I'll never leave you. I'll always be there when you're alone. All of us will be. Just me, myself and I.

September 1, 2009

Today would've been my mother and father's 65th Wedding Anniversary! Lord, I really miss them a lot. My dad loved to tell jokes, and fix things. All the time fixing things. My mom -- well, she was a party girl and loved to dance. She use to love to just, go, go, go! Shopping, oh boy her favorite past time. Well, Happy Anniversary you two! Kisses and hugs and butterfly kisses from me to you!

Today is the second day that I've restarted my diet. The medicine the doctor put me on is working fantastic except it's been keeping me up at night. Today I took it much earlier so we'll see how we do. I've posted a before picture, so you can see the before and after. Man, did you ever see so many chubby people in one picture. LOL Well, not my sister-in-law, but me and the boys -- DANG! I'm the one in black. The guy on the right end is my hubby (he loves my cooking). He also is a musician and you can hear his work at The one on the left in red is my little bro Paulie. He quit smoking a year after I did, and I've been smoke free for eight years. Way to go, BRO!!! Well, this is the before. I hope after what take too long.

My back has started up again, and there has been days that it has brought tears to my eyes for standing to long. I've been trying to ignore the pain, but sometimes it gets very difficult to do that. I know have these patches from the doctor that I haven't tried yet, so hopefully they will give me some relief. Well, off to Yoville (my favorite game lately) and get more coins to buy more furniture. hahahaha Enjoy and post something good. Feelings, joke or even a good piece of juicy gossip will do. LOL
