It’s been a while but I’m still around. My mom is still in the rehab facility with no release date yet. Some days she’s a little better than others but we have a long way to go…thank you for all your prayers.
On the home front, my garbage disposal died and while replacing it we found out the H&C pipes need to be replaced as well. Thankfully we have some good friends who are coming to our rescue and it won’t cost an arm and a leg to get this done. Also, our renter at my mom’s house skipped out this weekend! I have bent over backwards to accommodate this person….I let her move in without a deposit, gave her 2 weeks free rent, and have worked with her the past 4 months since she got fired from her job. Both my sister and myself have given her job leads and other assistance in getting her help during this time but some people you just can’t help….they have got to want to help themselves. We went by the house today and it’s not too bad….mostly just needs a good cleaning and I will have a cleaning company go in and I’ll also change the locks as I doubt she’ll return my keys.
Other than that…things are great !
I’ve been making myself eat better to try and get to a healthier weight. I have been drinking a Special K Protein Shake every day for lunch and it really has helped to curb my appetite. I’m not even “starved” at night. I’m also trying to cut out Cokes…my weakness! I’ve been substituting with fruit instead of eating chocolate and fattening desserts. I must say that I feel much, much better! I have an outdoor wedding to go to this summer and hope to look a little more fit and trim for that.
I’ll try and post more often, depending on how my mom does. I would appreciate your continued prayers for her.
