Happy Halloween!

Dan came up with a plan for our overloaded trailer. He rented a storage unit and as soon as we get to York, PA and unload him and David are heading back up here to get the rest of the stuff. I tell you I can see that the trailer and truck look like they are sitting better now. Dan said that the tires had rubbed holes in the wheel well and it was going to start throwing mud and snow up into the trailer.

Heather, Dan, Jim and David worked unloading things that we didn’t need right away. The wind was blowing and it started raining on them a little.

While they did that Linda and I had the hard job of taking care of our granddaughters.

Alice just spent the day kicked back.

Linda and I took the girls to the buffet at the hotel. They were so good and ate like big girls. Linda was having trouble with her phone, so we weren’t able to contact the rest of our group. Just as we received a text from Heather David showed up to tell us not to pack up and that we were staying another night. Linda and I finished eating lunch with our little girls, then it was time for their naps.

It was 2 before the rest of the party showed up. Heather was so frozen she had to take a hot bath to warm up. Then Heather and I did a little running around to pick up some apples and bananas which are the girls favorite. We also looked for some Halloween costumes for the little girls. We found some cute bathrobes that worked great, one was a frog and the other one was a bunny.

Before we went to dinner Heather and Dan let the girls go Trick or Treating to the grandparents’ rooms. I am not to sure they knew what was going on but the adults had fun.

We were all ready to have a good meal which we thought should include a steak. We went to the Sawmill which was close enough to walk, since everyone except us had something attached to the back of their vehicle, David ferried Heather and a baby and then Dan and the other baby to the restaurant because the wind was blowing.

Excellent steak and service.

After dinner we all walked back while David took Linda and a baby back to the hotel. It was a nice dinner and a good time with family.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank You Jen!

I was at the chiropractor today and was talking to Jen.  She asked if I had read what you commented on my post yesterday.  I told her I hadn’t because I had not been online all day.  I was trying complete something I had started.  I was trying not to go round and round.  So Jen and I are talking and she is telling me get a notebook and write down everything you want to do in that day.  As you mark things off you don’t look at what you didn’t get done but what you did.  You start really feeling good about yourself. She had learned that at one of her other jobs and still does it. In fact, the were getting some remodeling done and she was having to do everything  old school.  She was writing everything down she had to do and was happily checking them off as she did them.

When we left we stopped to pick up a few groceries, a file box (for choir music), and a notebook.  I started writing everything down I wanted to accomplish today.  I didn’t get everything done but I did make a dent which made me feel great. This is going to be another one of my life changing moves.  I hope I keep it up because I think it is the best idea I had heard in a long time.  So Thank You, Jen!

For those of you that are falling my diet I just want to say I am still doing good. I still have not minded this Keto diet at all so far.  We will see how I feel in a month, but I will keep you posted.  We are going camping this weekend and I am making cauliflower salad, which is like potato salad but with cauliflower instead of potato.  It is really good.  We can eat that with our sausages cooked over the fire one night.  The next night we will have some nice steaks. I haven’t decided about breakfast but I am sure it will be some kind of eggs, until I can figure out different things to eat.

I am now going to go and check off my blogging on my list!

I guess I forgot to post this one.  Oh well, better late than never like they say.
