I have a hard time on Mother's Day. I really miss my Mom. I have started to wish others Happy Mother's Day. I wish my sisters, nieces, women at church and friends a happy day. It takes away some of the loneliness of the day. My sister always wishes me a Happy Mother's Day. It makes me feel good, even though I am not technically a Mom. We get a flower at church and today I took it next door and my friend helped me plant it in a pot. I have it outside my door. Snickers likes plant, but he likes to eat them! Needless to say, I don't keep any in my apt.
I am having dinner at my friends apt tonight, so I am saving some calories and fat for then! We are have rotissorie chicken salad. The marinade she is using is lowfat and then it will be on a bed of lettuce. I don't think.it will have much fat, but I am going to enjoy it!!
She is a really good cook and we enjoy eating together. Then we are going to watch a movie on demand. Not sure what yet. We will decide later. Anyway it is nice to have a friend so close.
The weight is back to normal after surgery late day eating and TOM. I feel good and slept 9.5 hours last night!! I woke up feeling refreshed and ready to start my Sunday. Church was good and I only teared up once. Father's Day will be hard again this year, too. Not quite as hard as today...Dad was older and I had a different connection with my Dad.
I walked some yesterday and I usually skip the weekend. I happen to be house sitting and walked down to get their mail. I am healing nicely from surgery and don't need pain pills anymore. I think I took them 2 days. I was glad as then I could drive again!! I do not like to stay home...or should say...have to stay home!!
Well, I should do my dishes and read something good. Have a nice day. Angie
