Sorry I haven't been so good with updating the blog. It's been such a long, hot summer! Not only that, but ever since the surgery, I haven't gotten my stomach back! I think it's working TOO well. Take today, for instance. I just got back from the Ford dealer, as my in-laws invited my hubby and me for burgers & hot dogs at their new dealer. They just bought a kick-butt Ford Escape. Anyway, I had half a burger and it felt like I ate the whole grill! I had a few sips of Mt. Dew (nothing much because of the carbonation & gas!) and that about did me in. It's been a few hours and it feels like I just ate. I can't even go out to eat anymore!!! I can't complain, though. My last weight, after my car wreck, was 257lbs. I will be getting weighed again this coming week. I'll have to get a picture up here. It's really coming off!!
My diet these days is yogurt and skim milk and some chicken, when I can tolerate it. I kid you not, that is what I've been eating these days. That bout of diverticulitis has left its mark. Enough about that!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAD!! Today he is a young....whatever! :0) He is recovering well from his broken collar bone. I don't know if I told you, he had a nasty fall and that is what happened. Poor guy! He sure knows how to live it up in Oklahoma! From what I hear, that is going to be his NEW home pretty soon. I'm very happy he has found his soul mate in Gina. I'm happy to include her in the family now!!
That is pretty much all that's happened here. Still hot, but we did get a little spitting of water from the sky this morning. I pray for those that live on the East Coast and have suffered from Hurricane Irene's wrath. Hopefully all those roads and power have been restored.
Here is a picture from the past: My dad and I when I was about 25 yrs old and had first moved to Yuma, AZ. Don't we look young and foolish? Happy birthday, again, Dad and a good Labor Day weekend to all!!!
Just for the heck of it, here's some more from the past:
Stay tuned...there's more from where that came from!!
