Ups and Downs

I did not get my bugg uploaded this morning (Activity) but I did track calories. Not in goal range for sure (1400-1600) I am ready for an on plan day and have planned accordingly. I did about 20 mins of Wii Cycling and Table Tennis and some squats and crunches.

We had homemade hamburgers for dinner. They were yummy! I sauteed some mushrooms and onions to put on top. I have only had 2 fast food hamburgers in the last 2 years so sometimes I do actually crave a burger but they are so much better at home. I did happen to get on the scale and it is moving in the down direction so that was good to see.

Yesterday was an up and down on the emotional scale. First the positive. My "new" niece Olivia got married

She and her boyfriend Jeremy got married at the courthouse in Eureka yesterday. They are in the process of moving to Oklahoma (next week) as Jeremy will be attending Aviation school there.

I got my original birth certificate in the mail yesterday. My sister Tess, has all the paperwork from our mother and that was one of the missing pieces. The only thing missing now is a letter that Sandy (bio mother) wrote. Tess assures me that she wrote one but it was not on file with the county and she has not come across it but is still looking. 

Late yesterday, I popped on Facebook and had a message from a friend who lives out of state. She was on her way home from visiting her sister who used to be a good friend of mine. The sister and I had drifted apart over the last few years with distance and life.  Bren told me that Deb is dying, they don't know how long she has and that I should reach out to her and let her know I am praying for her and thinking about her and her daughter. I don't think I could call - I don't know if she can talk on the phone but I will write her a letter. She and her daughter were a very important part of my life and I do think about her all the time. Needless to say, it will not be an easy letter to write but a very important one. Just thinking about writing it makes me cry but I need to just buck up and do it.  Until next time...


  1. Sorry about the bad news about Deb. You guys are all in my thoughts and prayers. :(

    Congrats, though, on your niece's wedding. :)

  2. Sorry about your friend. Will be sending prayers up.

  3. Sounds like you need to write that letter soon - sorry that it's those sad circumstances that will get you two back in touch.

  4. That's a toughie, Katie, but you can do it. You have a way with words.

  5. So sorry to hear about your friend. I have people in my life that I was super close to but have drifted so far apart from. Your post makes me want to reach out to them and reconnect. Big Hugs!!

  6. I'm with Shelly. Don't put off writing the letter. You'll be glad you did when it's over. Sorry about your friend. That's just ta tough situation.

    Glad to hear the scale is going down. Keep up the good work.

  7. Just write from the heart-your heart is so big I know she is lucky to have you in her life~

  8. OH man, what news - I'm sorry to hear about your friend :(


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
