Wednesday, Christmas dinner 2 days late

     We had Christmas dinner last night, cooked by my twin.  It was delicious.  Prime rib with all the fixings and chocolate mouse for dessert.  There goes my diet. 

     Yesterday mom was up to her old scheming self trying to get my sister and I to fight.  We saw through it instantly and I told my mother she was being ridiculous.  I rarely put mom in her place.  But this was just too obvious.  We have to be a united front.  After a two hour long tantrum mom came out of her room and apologized.  We went to Macy's yesterday and I scored Christmas pj's for the grand kids for $2.97.  Mom is very weak and had a hard time at Macy's.  She loves to go and shop but I am wondering how long before we no longer do much of this. I do know this, every time she has a A-fib episode she loses ground.  Her stability becomes poorer.

     Sissy is going through my house like a cat on fire.  I just love that.  She is now organizing the food storage, little darling.  But she whips my butt into shape faster than anyone I know.

     I have a big new list of to do's over on the side.  I wonder how many I can get Sissie to do and I will just nap?

     I received a fitbit for Christmas.  Is somebody trying to tell me something?  Actually I wanted it.  It is fun so far.  When I could not get over that bad chest cold that turned into pneu(that word I can't spell) (where is Cindy when I need her?)my new specialist suggested that I do some kind of exercise that involved aerobics so I was forced to breath deep and open the lungs.  I always am so on the go I don't consider myself a couch potato but the scales and the the breathing tests say otherwise.  My arthritic joints don't like the 20 lbs I have gained in the last 5 years.  I had to quit running about 5 years ago.  I miss it desperately but have replaced it with nothing.  Hub's and I can take long walks and bike and canoe, but nothing on a regular basis and I need regular for my lungs. Anyway it has really helped just to do a short workout video 5 days a week.  Low impact and I finally got the lungs cleaned out.  However I feel a sinus infection coming on.  So I won't hold my breath.:)

     Mom is upstairs with her new maid (Sissie) and I am going to get in the bath tub.  I have a dance meeting today and then Hub's and I are going to see a movie tonight.  I have major sewing to do and I must complete something on my list so I had better get my butt in gear.

have a great and productive day!



  1. I am laughing at (with?) the first item on your weekly goals. I understand that so well!
    Have a nice soak and a nap!

  2. I didn't know you had a twin! FUN! And yeah, I know a few manipulative people who like to get a fight started too...
    Enjoy your bath!
