Sigh... Momma in the hotel and we are getting stuff done! Well maybe not as much as we could have, we played a little bit; but we were just enjoying the day - being able to walk at a normal pace - not having to be aware of the toddler and concider anything and everything that would effect her - not having to change but one 'diaper' today (love that one) - and tonight being able to sleep WITHOUT having to be hyperaware of sounds (such as the bell on the bedroom door). Tomorrow we go look at 3 different 'homes'. They are smaller, and will hold 6-8 residents. I'm so glad that this option is available!!
We did make a purchase that I needed, but cringe at spending money. Its a new laptop. Before the truckdriving leap of faith, we were trying to 'revamp' the computer that Momma was using for solitare (until she forgot what a computer was) - it was having ALL types of problems. Needless to say just as we get it up and running - we leap!! Well I can't take a desk top in a truck, and I still want to run the business - plus our own household stuff - so I can't use a little netbook like Gary has for just web and email. I need to run Quickbooks (it uses more memory than available on the netbook) - so we went for a basic/basic laptop, with just enough memory RAM to run QB. (that's what I'm using to BLOG now) So I will be able to do all household stuff on this AND take it with me. OH I have skype on this too - so if you want to skype me I'm ladyklingon :) I'm trying to stay intouch with everyone on Facebook - but the forums I'm not doing so good at. Since my attention has drifted from Bariatric reading to Trucking reading I have been on a Trucking forum. I need that info for the 'change' of careers. I will try to touch back frequently to the WLS forums - though, I need THAT support and reinforcement too.
I have been (with all that is going on) loosing more weight. I was holding steady there at 165ish for the longest time. OK 165 to 161 (which was my lowest) - however this morning 158!! I feel fine - Gary says I don't look to thin - my body dismorphia fear is that I might get too thin and not recognise it!! I know in my head that I'm now 'thin' but sometimes I don't FEEL it. Its getting better though - I'm using that voice in my head to tell me I am - LOL!
