Well, Mom is finally at peace; and after 3 years of caring for her, I need to figure out who I am again. It is strange being home and being able to call my time my own. Time to spend some quality time on ME!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you are trudging seems all uphill;
When the funds are low, and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh;
When care is pressing you down a bit -
Rest if you must, but don't quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns;
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won, had he struck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow;
You may well succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the Victor's cup!
And he learned too late, when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are
If may be near, when it seems afar.
So stick to the fight when you are hardest hit,
It is when things seem worst you must not quit.

My Program:
Fitness: 10 minutes daily, Monday through Friday; then increase as tolerated.

Yes, my DH is good about eating what's put in front of him and thanking me for it but I know not to bother with some things a second time, LOL.

We're having chili tonight and meatball spaghetti tomorrow night then I'll make him a meatloaf for Friday night (and I'll just eat the baked potato and veggies, doing tuna for lunch or something) and that way he'll have leftover meatloaf to make himself a sandwich later in the week for a dinner. I decided to splurge for crab cakes for us and our friend on Saturday (already prepared/frozen), I'll bake fries in the oven and see if the corn on the cob is still okay, don't know where the store is getting that from! Sunday I'll cook my turkey breast and I'll probably eat on the leftovers of that but I bought frozen-type meal for him, a fried chicken strip thing and chicken enchiladas if he (or I) want to make them, they come with all the stuff in the box. Then there's Thanksgiving and then I'll be on to the next week, which will be the 7 Articles or principles to learn and do that week and on their "day" of the week therafter?
