Playing the Glad Game

Okay so after the past couple of days of taking care of my sickly child, I feel that I have
NEED to play the glad game.  All you have to do is name 3 things you are glad about.
It tends to help a stressful situation.

  1. I am glad my child is no longer vomitting, even if her fever is still lingering.
  2. I am glad that my boss was understanding when I had to call out for a second day in a row.
  3. I am glad that a movie that I requested from the library came in today.
Okay I feel a bit better.  Now time to tuck the little one in and take the dog out for his last walk for the evening.

Sisterly Love

Yesterday, Saturday, I had my twin sisters, yes I said twin,but somehow I think I have said that in earlier posts, over for a 1st annual Valentine's Day brunch.

It was so much fun and the food was great!

My sisters are 6 years younger than me and one is set to be married on May 1st of this year.

The other has been married for 5 years next month and has a 2 1/2 year old little boy that can melt your heart with his meer presence.

So the 5 of us, my daughter included, had a great time.

I served Blueberry French Toast and sausage stuffed crescent rolls along with coffee, 'cause we can't ever forget coffee, unless its a tea party and I am always game for those too!

Also some really great news, since I have stopped emotionally eating back in August, I have lost 27 lbs so far!!! I am so happy, although my clothes are actually falling off and now I need to either take them in or buy new ones or perhaps both :) I eat anything I want but refuse to do it as a prize or as a I'm happy or I'm sad, aka emotionally eating.

I am hoping and praying for a continued success and maybe have an additional 10 pounds off before my sisters wedding. But if it is less or more I am good with either at this point.

Have a wonderful Lord's Day!

The loss of the tv

A person in today's society might not realize this but, to not have the TV on is fastly becoming one of my favorite pastimes. And to think this all began as a punishment to my daughter for mouthing off to me Monday morning before school. I told her the TV was gone till Tuesday and she yelled NO, so with each no came another day.

We are now on day 3 and have 2 more to go. Yep my kid knows how to throw the 'no' word out pretty well.

Its so quiet, just the windows open, the sound of birds chirping, my daughter playing and the dog barking occasionally.

I am thinking the TV might become a thing of the past and become an occasional treat.

She had horrible withdraws the first 24 hours but after that she has done wonderful.

Where is that mouthy little girl, I think she is stuck in the TV somewhere hahaha.
And now I am left with my sweet, funny little girl that I absolutely adore!
