Waylay Weigh Wednesday

Well I have decided to waylay weighing in until tomorrow. Reason being is that I forgot to take my medications yesterday. One of the meds I take is a "water" pill and therefore I could potentially be retaining water. Whatever it says tomorrow I will make it official though.

I saw mom last night for dinner. She had some paperwork she wanted me to look at. The other day she went to the Hallmark store and was pulling in to a parking space and just slightly scratched the car next to her. No marks on her car just the other one. (Side note: She has never been in an accident in her entire life. The only other time she hit anything was when I was 7 (1973) and she hit her car with my dads car backing out of her driveway.) Anyways, she is a little freaked out about it since this is all new to her. I was able to calm her down a little and walk her through it. I need to remember to be more patient though. I think part of my frustration is that it is hard for me to watch her struggle with her vision and memory. I feel like I am losing my mom and slowly switching roles *sigh*

Please take a moment this Veterans Day to think about the sacrifices of members of the Armed Forces both living and passed. My dad was a disabled Korean War veteran who was paraplegic due to spinal cord injury from a gunshot. He passed away in 1999 and is buried in the Garden of Honor at the cemetery near my mom's house.

Until next time...


  1. Will be looking forward to your official weigh in tomorrow.....hoping for a good one for your sake.

    Thankfully my mom still works and is very very up with things...I know this could change in the future then it's me next in line, my girls looking after their mom..the circle of life!!

    Thoughts to your Dad...My grandfather fought in the 2nd World war for 5 years as well...they are all hero's.

  2. Thanks for the F.I.F logo! Its perfect! I put it up! :-)

  3. Good luck with the WI tomorrow. *crossing fingers*

    Sorry to hear that your Mom was stressed about the ding and getting everything taken care of. I'm sure she appreciates your help.

    My Dad fought in Korea too. Thank you to your Dad for his service and sacrifice.

  4. I have unusually older parents for my age and every once in a while I'll start to notice more "significant" lapses in memory or vision, moreso in my dad. it scares the bejesus out of me.
