***Note*** I am typing this on Thursday night, trying to catch up. I uploaded these photos on Wednesday night when I came home and intended to come back later to add the text.'s later!...LOL

Ok...the day started with my coffee as usual. I love my morning coffee! 1 point.

Breakfast was oatmeal and Fiber One, with an apple chopped up in it, and flavored with PB2. 5 points

Lunch was a vegetaran burger on a Western Alternative bagel, a few Pringles Light chips, snap peas and an apple. 5.5 points

An afternoon snack is not something I outinely have but this day I was going straight to my folks house after work and I didn't want to be tempted by allowing myself to go there hungry. So I had a Carb Check Cinnamon bagel and some fat free cream cheese, sprinkled with cinnamon. 2.5 points.

After work I headed over to my parent's house to meet up with my sisters. It has been many, many years since we've all been together in one place at the same time, so we took a few photos. It was so great to be together with my sisters and my Mom all at the same time!
From Left to right: My sisters, Debbie, Joyce, Myself, and Tammy. The small boy is Gavin, Debbie's grandson. He insisted on being in every photo and he's pretty darned cute, so we let him!

This next one is the same line-up except that's our Mom in the front! The Clifton Girls!! Together again! We would have loved to get a shot with our Dad in it, but he wasn't having a good day. Dad suffers from dementia and has small strokes which cause him to be further confused. That day he was very confused and agitated and we were trying not to stimulate him...but we would have loved to have had him in the photos with all of his girls who love him so very much and who still know he's a hero

After I got home from my parents' house, I made myself a baked potato, topped with vegetarian chili, fat free cheese and sour cream, and sprinkled with onion. 6 points

I needed a snack before bed so I had some Fage yogurt, PB2, a banana, and some Walden farms chocolate syrup.....oh YUM!! 3 points

Daily points used: 23
Target 23
Whew! I am getting caught up!

Nice group of women... and cute grandson/ or grand nephew to you, right? SO I want to know which one of this wonderful sister's is the saint... Oh... and I'm sooo glad that your dad's 'escape' didn't turn out any worse. Cuts and scrapes can heal. Hugs for you.

Now... go celebrate with a great bday dinner...K?
