Diets, Old Men, and Bubbles

Did I mention that I've been trying to diet? So far, so good. But it's only been going on for a week. ha! If I can discipline myself for about 30 days I'll be successful. It's not all that hard to follow a diet for a week. Nothing specific. Just cutting out sugar and flour, more lemon water, salads and fruits. Strictly Monday - Friday. Saturdays and Sundays I'm on my own.

I know that extra weight hurts my osteoarthritis joints much more. Besides, I have loved ones that I want to be around for a long, long time.

Today is my sweet husband's 60th birthday. Yes, 6-0. I think he's embracing it quite well. Dear daughter has been having pains in her vee-jay and inner leg area so we called the doctor and were told to take Tylenol, (do NOT take Advil they said), and to hang in there until her next appointment in 2 weeks. It's painful enough that she's just taking baby steps to move around. It's enough to keep me worried and afraid because I don't know what's going on exactly. One of her friends had the very same pain, so that helped to validate it somewhat. Skyler's baby is still very active. Maybe he's just a little too active and is causing her the pain.

And she went swimming yesterday. Be still my beating heart. If I could I'd keep her enclosed in a bubble until September.

Happy Birthday to Mr Susan.
And swimming is good, I think.

Worrying about the kids just gets more complicated, eh? And I second Julie's happy birthday to the Mr.

Sixty. Wow! We are becoming the elders, aren't we?
