Monday Musings….

Wow, is it just me or was it so hard to get out of bed this morning?? It is so weird how 1 little hour can throw off so much, I felt like yesterday was so short. Anyhoo….I thought I would play catch up with you all this morning!!

Yesterday was my Oma and Granddad’s 54th Wedding Anniversary! And my Oma is the best nurse around, my Mom said that she is by Granddads side everyday at the hospital! It makes me happy that their spirits are high but sad because I can not be there to help!

The latest on Granddad……..

When they opened his brain there was no tumor….which shocked the neurosurgeon but instead a huge puss pocket. So the past 4 days have been filled with tests to find out where the infection came from and how to treat it from here. Saturday they discovered that it most likely came from his mouth and now they are trying to figure out if it has effected his heart or other organs. We are all just waiting to hear the results of all the tests. He is in good spirits, he started physical therapy and antibiotics thru his IV. I hope we find out more today. Thank you for your continued thoughts and prayers.

This picture is so sweet and one of my favorites…. yes, that blonde child is ME! This is what I talked about last week how Oma and Granddad took care of me when I was little, I wanted to go everywhere with my Granddad. We have a special bond that is unique to us….

Switching gears….

So, after this weekend I am down on myself…..I didn’t eat good. My portions this weekend were out of control and as of this morning I gained my 1.5 pound weigh loss last week back. I realize I can get rid of this, this week but I am just mad at myself. I have to realize that if I walk away and separate myself from that 2nd helping or dessert that most likely I can live without it. I have to work on my impulse control. No ifs, ands or butts. 

I came across this Christian based blog about a month ago and I love it! This woman covers everything from building a better marriage, parenting and even homemaking. I signed up for the email newsletter and I love all the helpful advice and tips I get by doing so! So you can click on the logo below to visit the blog and see if it is something you would enjoy as much as I do.

Guess what? My friend Becky (you can visit her blog HERE) is coming to visit for a girls getaway! Becky is coming this Thursday and leaving the following Tuesday. I am going to take her to all my favorite Columbus haunts and then we are also going to relax at home too it is a vacation after all. I am excited to show Becky my new city…..but before then I will be a mad-cleaning-fool!!! And yes, we will be seeing a movie or two…..one of our favorite things to do!

Ok, friends……I am off to get on top of this cleaning house situation!! Happy Monday to you!

    Glad your Granddad is doing better and I hope the test results come back well. I am with you on the eating bad, I have not braved the scale lately though. You will get back on track. So excited for you, a visit from Becky…so awesome! I know you two will have a great time! Can't wait to read all about it. The time change did me in today, I was late to work. I just couldn't stop hitting the snooze button, LOL!
