I was surprised when I glanced at the date of my last post... I hadn't realized it had been that long! Is that a good thing? Too busy living to obsess on weight loss?? Or maybe just too busy, LOL!
This last Monday I had a wonderful visit family members. We met at a local eatery, and shared our memories of my Dad... and to some of them, their Grand-Dad. The youngest was 3, Dad's great-granddaughter.
I enjoyed it so much...it was sort of closure. Since I don't have permission to post photos of everyone, I'll just show Jim and myself:
My brother had generously sent us a gift card to this restaurant, which happened to be the buffet type. I liked that! I get to be picky, and stay on plan. Though I must admit, I came within 3 seconds of going back for a huge chocolate frosted brownie I spotted while looking for the sugar-free desserts.
I was pouting because they used to have more choices. And I ALMOST huffed and puffed over that, and went for the brownie. Thankfully, sanity prevailed. ;-) But it sort of shook me to have come that close. Sigh... I'm not as solid as I'd like to think. And I need to remember that.
Each year when we use the gift card from my brother and sister-in-law, we bring a cardboard cut-out stand-up of Weebles with Phil and Fay's names on it. We set it on the table like they are there having the meal with us. It's funny to us... and then we send it to them afterwards with the photo.
This year I included a cut-out of my Dad. This was my and my sister's favorite photo of Dad. We had a sweet time of sharing, laughing, remembering, and telling stories on each other. :-)
