Lost 4.6 pounds!!!


Mid week crisis

Last Saturday I had totally had it. I was out of control. I needed to make changes and I wanted to do it right then. I drove over to the nearest Weight Watchers, smacked down my credit card, stepped on the scale and said sign me up. This has been my first week. It has been very hectic. I started a new job, had the new neighbor next door act like a jerk and call the cops not only once, but four times with in the last 24 hours, over my dog that barks occasionally (really). He owns to Dotson...nuf said. Finally the police told him to stop harassing me and stay on his own property. Now I get the joys of driving down to Detroit to get a PPO after work tomorrow. My first grand baby is due at any moment...yikes!! Is this stressful yet? No... not yet. I need to get the list of workers into management at the U of M Football by tomorrow ( we run a booth),  Run a food bank and keep my sanity at the same time....Is this stressful yet? NO... Son # 4 is in his first of college and not doing to well....Now that is stress! So, as this week progresses. I am on plan. I just can't wait to see what the scale does this Saturday. How is Your week going?


First day on weight watchers . I have gained twenty pounds over the summer. I woke up this morning and told myself, enough is enough! So join me as I blog about my journey.


Dan said: "Paulette, come quick! Your cat is dead!" And he proceeded to sing the hallelujah chorus. Upon closer inspection my kitty was only sleeping upside down of course. ( Insert the entire angelic choir singing The Hallelujah chorus here)

Once again it's time for winter fest in Indianapolis. The church van has left, loaded with kids. Jenny went to chaperone. So Brice is so lucky to spend the weekend with us.


Return to work!

Yeah! I accepted a job, and I will be returning to work February 11! To celebrate, my husband bought me a new stethoscope. What a cool color!

Easy Street block A

Another block made.. Only 14 more to go!

Oops..... here we go again!

Someone had a momentarily lapse in better judgement, and spent a night of indiscretion. The whole family searched ALL night long. Someone finally returned home the next morning and was on the porch meowing her head off. She had an appointment with the vet in Jan to be fixed.  Now Someone is going to have kittens again!  


First block done.

On December 29th at 6:50 a.m. we got the call. We had been with my mother in law all evening the night before. We brought her home on hospice, that very same week. She decided that enough was enough and made heaven her new address. We will miss her, but for a long time she wanted to leave this world and finally was granted permission.
