I sat with my Dad for a few hours last night while my Mom and my sister got out of the house for a while. I ended up calling my sister to come home because Dad was really agitated and hallucinating. He had been given a lot of medication to try and calm him, so he was not stable on his feet at all. He couldn't walk or stand without falling but he would not stay down. I hated to call my sister but she is really the only one he'll respond to when he gets like this. I'm sure she had a long night last night. I am so grateful for my sister! She is my hero for taking care of my Dad.

My Weight Watcher plan continues to go well. I am honestly amazed at how natural it feels to eat this way. My appetite is under control for the most part. I am not having weird cravings and a constant desire to binge. I don't know if it's a result of eating a more balanced diet, or if it's God's grace and mercy prompting me to make better choices, a new resolve on my part....or all of these things working together...but it feels really good.'s my menu for yesterday...

Tomorrow, Saturday, Vern and I have the whole day to ourselves. We don't have as many of these weekends as we used to since we are keeping Autumn when her daddy has to work. But he's not working tomorrow and Vern and I have a Saturday to just be with each other. I am looking forward to it. I'm not sure what we'll be doing but I am thinking it might include a picnic!

I wonder if I can predict what you will have for breakfast.... I can get in a habit with foods sometimes. So, tell me... have you tried the WW english muffins? Are the Thomas ones better? I hope so, as the WW ones leave something to be desired.

You will have to tell me about the book you are reading for the bible study... I'm always looking for new things to read. Have a great time with DH... I'm hoping to have some alone time with my DH this weekend too.

LOL..yes, I do tend to eat the same thing for days at a time until I get tired of it and then I'll eat something else for a while. Right now it's fruit, yogurt and oats. Who knows what it will be next :)

The book is great! I need to do a blog post about the things I am realizing, being reminded of, and learning in this study.

I hope you and your hubby get some fun time together this weekend!
