Wavering Wednesday

Yesterday was a rather uneventful day. I think I was still in a fog from the weekend. Also, I am trying to maintain my sanity in dealing with my family. It is nothing catastrophic but I want to try to keep my mom calm and it is not an easy task as of late.

I will be going there tonight to help her straighten things up and to go to Fish Market.  My brother will be flying in late and getting a rental car which is great. This is actually the first time they will be using a rental vs. my mom's car. They also will not be bringing the puppies :-( I was looking forward to seeing them... guess the airline changed their prices or something. Bummer...

This morning we are having a headmaster's meeting here at our office. I have had 3 different people come up to me and say "Wow, you look great!" and "You have lost a bunch of weight" It felt really nice to hear them say that. I only see them every few months so apparently I have changed. Instead of replying with a self-depreciating comment I just accepted their gracious compliments and said thank you. Times, they are a' changin. Until next time...

P.S. Fat Daddy Rants is back to blogging. Please stop by and say Hi!


  1. Woohoo! People noticing can make your day, that's for sure! :D Deb

  2. Actually the other day I ran into one of my old co-workers who I hadn't seen since April and she was like "look how skinny you are getting!" I usually say something like "but I still have 25 pounds to lose," but like you, I just accepted the compliment - go us!

  3. Go you with your thinner looking self! Glad to hear that you were complimented.

  4. I loved it when people used to say that to me! I found it hard to accept the compliments, but then I thought Hell, I deserve it. I worked my butt. Now I just say thanks with a huge grin on my face!

    Thanks again for your email and your friendship. Family drama is the worse. Take care!

  5. I think an even better NSV than getting compliments is starting to graciously accept them. I was a total denier too, but now when people say nice things, I thank them cuz I genuinely agree. :)

  6. How fun that people are noticing your weight loss!

  7. I love when people notice and give compliments!! Makes your day go so much better!!! Congrats!!





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