Well, winter has been really harsh here. Extreme cold, lots of snow, lots of ice, and lots of illnesses. Mom is now on the tail end of pneumonia, but getting better, thank God!

As for me, well, the title says it all...still here, still kickin', and STILL STRUGGLING! I have not done well since Christmas. I try, but that darned emotional eating just keeps reaching out and grabbing me by the throat. It's not that I am eating a lot of things I shouldn't, it's just that I am not particularly motivated or careful. If there is candy or sweets (and there always are these days, since mom eats them) I indulge myself...not a lot, but enough to stymie my efforts. I am not quitting, although there are days when I wonder "What's the use?" There is nothing except caring for mom, cleaning house, running errands, and occasionally, time to read a bit. In the last week we have been to the doctor 2 times and the ER 2 times with mom. IS ANY OF THIS AN EXCUSE??? No, it's not, but my motivation is at a 4 year low, and I just can't seem to get it back. I am hoping with the coming spring, I can make the time to get out and walk at least, rather than sitting around watching my a** spread!

Dan continues to do all the things that make him the most awesome hubby ever...he cleans, he cooks, he does laundry, and he takes care of mom and me.

I know that what I need to do is get back to journaling, tracking, and exercising. Knowing and doing are 2 different things, though, and that is where I am struggling. Every day I get up and say to myself, "Today, I will get back on track!" By the end of the day, I am disappointed with myself as I have failed once again.

So, here I am, ashamed and depressed, ready to try again. Perhaps this time I can find my mojo and get this show on the road!

Well, that's all the news that's fit to print from my world, hope all is well in yours!

Well, let's see...has anything gone on in the last week? Friday night my brother and his wife were unable to come and visit mom. They were just too tired, so we stayed home and played Yahtzee. Saturday, mom and I went to the church. I was in charge of getting the church cleaned up and ready for the Christmas season. There was a nice group of volunteers that showed up, about 8 in all, and we got the carpets cleaned, the windows done, the bathroom floors stripped and re-waxed, and the church decorated. Mom and I got home around 8, after arriving at noon. Mom helped with the decorating, and I think she had a good time. Sunday, church, then to Sams, the grocery store, and a nice nap. I woke from the nap sick. Some sort of stomach bug and it was affecting both ends. Not good. I am still battling it a bit, but it is much better. So Dan made me chicken for dinner, and I rested the remainder of the the day. Monday I was better, cleaned house and got ready for middle sis' visit. She is terribly allergic to cats so getting ready involves vacuuming everything (including the chairs, fans, etc), mopping, and dusting to make sure all the cat hair is gone. Bless her heart, even with that, she is still bothered by them, but Zyrtec keeps it under control. Tuesday we put the Christmas tree up and mom and I ran errands in town. When we got home, I vacuumed and mopped, then Dan and I went down to the shed and brought up the decorations for the tree and the inside of the house. Today we worked on the tree and are just about done with it. Unfortunately, a mouse chewed a hole through the lid of one of the storage tubs and made a mess, so I had to go through that before we could get started. The plan for tomorrow is to finish the tree and do the other decorating. I need to contact the grocer about the meat for Sunday's Christmas dinner at church (I am also in charge of that) and may have to run down there to pick it up as the weather on Friday may be getting nasty. I also need to vacuum everything again, as middle sis and her hubby are coming to have dinner and visit mom. Friday brother is supposed to come, but they are calling for that snow and ice, so not sure how that will turn out. Guess we'll just play it by ear.

Okay, now for the nitty I have not been getting enough calories every day this week due to the stomach issues I have been dealing with. I still feel pretty punk, and am not going to push it, since I have been taking Kaopectate every day and Pepto as well. I suppose this shall pass. I have been eating the foods that serve my body best, but the scale is static. No movement there. I will just continue to do my best and eventually it will drop again. Probably when my stomach issues are resolved!

Well, that's about all the news that's fit to print from my corner. Hope all is well in yours!

Well, we got out and finished the gutter and window lights, got the star put up, took the trash up the drive, brought the other can down, covered the convertible, and then came inside. Although we were bundled up, the wind was cutting along with the 26 degrees. After 69 yesterday, that was just too cold. No time for acclimation. But we did it! Tomorrow I need to go out and put bows on the rails and put some finishing touches on the front of the house.

We are getting ready to watch "Scrooge" with George C. Scott. Great movie. Once the outside is done, we need to get the tree up and inside decorations done. Tomorrow after I'm done outside, we WILL finish the antique glass ware and perhaps get the copper backsplash done! One can always hope, right?

Food is good, weight is on it's way down.

Well, that's about all the news that's fit to print from my corner. Hope all is well in yours!
