I love getting encouragements! Thanks so much, Sara, Robert, Keecha, Sandy, & Kaye.
I'm so proud of myself! I did this challenge without even knowing that this was the challenge. I'll make sure my daughter gets the memo.
I took a friend to the doctor this morning. It seems that I am of a certain age where all my friends have just as many doctor appointments as I do. My friend has always been legally blind, but recently he lost all of his sight due to a tumor. It's very scary for him.
Tonight I promised another friend that I would go to Holidazzle with him. The time is drawing nigh and I'm thinking that I'm going to freeze to death. It is an outdoor festival celebrating winter. Oh well...it's just a few hours and then I can come home and put on lots of blankets.

I'm feeling well-cared for today. Thanks so much for the kind encouragements, Robert, Keecha, JuaNita, Karen, Sara, Janet, Cindy, & Nirmala.
I've been keeping my bath and shower water cooler ever since I had a challenge awhile back that told us that too hot water makes your skin dry. I'll make sure my new granddaughter has perfectly temperate water.
I've been on the go all day, but it doesn't seem like I got too much done. I went to lunch with my ex-husband and I made him several doctor appointments. He really should have a caregiver living with him, but he's refusing so far. I can tell he's getting closer to making the decision, though.
I went to see my therapist. She wants to break up with me because I'm not getting better. Actually, she recommended some different types of therapy. I'll deal with all this after the New Year.
"Understand that getting help isn't a sign of weakness but a sign of strength."

I'm feeling the love! Thanks for the sweet encouragements, Frank, Keecha, Robert, Sara, & Melanie.
It's so fun to watch my daughter be pregnant. She is an older mother, so she is much more prepared for this than I ever was. I'm thinking that I am almost mature enough to start having babies myself. But I'll never be as put-together as my daughter.
I recently took a class for grandparents. Seriously. Babies scare me and things have changed since I had babies over 35 years ago. I'm going to be doing some Grandma-care while my daughter works, so I think I'm ready to go.
"We need to accept that we won't always make the right decisions, that we'll screw up royally sometimes—understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it's part of success."
– Arianna Huffington
Thanks for the welcome-back encouragement today, Sara, Janet, Nirmala, Debbie, Christiana. You guys made my day!
It's pretty cool to await the birth of a baby during Advent. I asked my daughter how she envisions bonding with her daughter and she said holding her and reading her books. I love that idea. I look forward to holding her, too. I want to rub her little back and I'd love to sing to her.
Some people asked what I was doing on my break. I just needed some time to get my head on straight -- don't think the time off helped much, but I gave it a try. I will keep my whining to a minimum.
“Do one thing every day that scares you.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt
I'm back! The break may not have cured me, but I'm back. I missed you guys! I look forward to seeing what you've all been up to!
I'm taking the train downtown to meet some work friends for lunch. I'll look for something healthy on the menu.
My daughter is still pregnant. Due on the 28th of December. She's gained 46 pounds. That's a lot for her 100-pound frame. I'm hoping she doesn't wait all the way to her due date. Having said that, it is now time for me to switch to the 3rd trimester track.
It’s your place in the world; it’s your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live.
– Mae Jemison
Thanks for the encouragement today, Sara & Keecha.
Push-ups where you sit down? Sign me up!
I'm going to pick up my daughter at the airport in about an hour. Wishing you all a spectacular Thursday.
Thanks so much for the encouragement today, Robert, Keecha, Sara, JuaNita, & Melanie.
As for the challenge: I played a beautiful piano concerto. Too bad no one could hear it.
My daughter and granddaughter are coming to town tomorrow. Saturday will be my other daughter's baby shower. I have much to prepare. Still.
Enjoy your evening, Peeps!
