My little one is sick with a tummy ache and a headache; he’s planted in front of the television. We left for school and weren’t even out of the driveway when he started complaining about his stomach. I told him to try and manage an hour and see how he felt, that I would be just a phone call away. He made me laugh, he said, “Grammy lives closer to school than we do and can get me faster, I’ll have Mary call her.” He’d rather go down Grammy’s than go home!
Anyway, he seemed okay so we drove onto school but by the time we arrived at the building, he burst into tears and said it hurt so much, so I just brought him back home. I tucked him into bed for a couple of hours and he rested a bit. Now he gets a bit of television time but after while, it’ll be back to bed for him. He said he was hungry so I fixed him some Ramen noodles, but he barely ate.
It has been a busy week. On Sunday we (the PCCW) fed between 130-140 people for the funeral dinner. On Monday we (our church) sponsored the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks blood drive at our church; we had over 40 people show up! Yay!
Today I was going to go grocery shopping. I’ve got a menu planned for the entire remaining month of January and have a list based on that menu. It’ll be a DOOZY of a bill when I’m done, but then I shouldn’t have to go back to the store except for things like bread and milk and fresh veggies and fruits.
I may try to go to the store tonight after dinner. Yum! I fixed a pot of ham and bean soup yesterday and it made the house smell wonderful. We didn’t eat it yesterday, we went out to Mazzio’s, so the soup will be really really good today since it’s had a day for the flavors to mingle!
I haven’t heard yet from the Missouri Bariatrics….every day I wonder if TODAY will be the day. When I spoke with Amy in December, she said it MIGHT be that I’ll hear from them this month. I’ll wait until February 1st, then I’ll call again. I’m so anxious. The bad news is that the 18 pounds I’ve lost…..I’ve gained some back…..grrrrrr! I need to get back to Curves and back to eating less. It feels as if I’ve been eating less but obviously I’m NOT.
Our American Diabetes Association School Walk is coming up…..silly me sent out a memo with a sponsor envelope to all the parents and put the wrong date for the Walk! The school principal just called me to say that she told me it ought to be on January 28! Not January 29! What a ditz I am. Anyway that’s the way my brain works sometimes…..there’s just too much junk going on upstairs for it to process and mistakes happen. Thankfully, the school secretary will put the correct date in the weekly newsletter and people should call me when questions.
