Today was a productive day thankfully. I’m trying so hard to get back into my weight loss groove but I’m finding that I have A LOT of things on my plate which of course makes me want to eat!
My oldest is a junior, I know I need to be making a list of what needs to be done to keep us on track this year; visiting colleges, narrowing down choices, studying for the ACT & SAT, and trying to get her involved in some volunteering opportunities – they all have to be addressed and neither one of us know where to begin! It’s all so, well…overwhelming!
Another item on my to do list has to do with my mother. She lives alone and after her AAA surgery this past January, she seems to have lost much of her muscle tone. She falls at least once every couple weeks. Thankfully she hasn’t hurt herself too badly, but I’m waiting. I am in no way asking for trouble, but I’m realizing it’s time to do something before she breaks a hip and there is no chance of recovery.
As with the college prep, I’m not sure what to do or even where to start. I have made some phone calls but no one has been able to answer all my questions – some haven’t even bothered to answer the phone and these are GOVERNMENT agencies. (Is anyone really shocked??) It’s very frustrating considering I’m not even sure I know what to ask. All I can do is read, ask questions and hope for the best.
On a lighter note, tonight’s dinner was Monterey Chicken. I had Brussel sprouts but the family had pan roasted potatoes, corn and fruit. So easy and really delicious!! Have a great night!
