I took this at the end of January, but forgot to post it. Here's my new way to keep me from texting while driving. lol. Wrote that for you, Mom. Love my new GPS/phone holder I got from the Mac store. It's made by a company in Nashville and was the perfect thing I was looking for.
2-20-12 "Gluten throws havoc on our digestive system, inhibits nutrient absorption and produces systemic inflammation that can cause obesity, diabetes, cancer and heart disease. The battle of the waistline is actually a battle of the taste buds. The sweet taste of processed foods unfortunately does not have sweet outcomes. The inner aisles of the supermarket may shorten your life.--I knew there was a reason I was trying to eat gluten free when I can." Found this on a health website I subscribe to. I have been trying to cut out gluten that I blatantly know of...you'd be surprised at how many foods/sauces have gluten in them! PS-I ended February by being down 26lbs!!!!!
2-23-12 went for a walk with my new friend, Emilee. It was a brisk 40min walk soaking up some much needed Vitamin D...ahhh
2-24-12 Epic fail at my weather check...yesterday sunny 70= cotton skirt no leggings so today I thought why not? Um bc it's 52 and we're under a wind advisory.
Lance and Sandra were really surprised to see me at the visitation. It was really worth the 7 hr drive. I stayed until it was over and went to Lance's childhood home afterwards. I'm so thankful for some other friends, Scott and Sherri Willis, who were there so I didn't have to walk into the funeral home by myself. (something I still don't do well with) They also let me follow them back to Valdosta. Soperton to Valdosta is all back roads and darkness. Scott would turn on his R or L blinker when he saw a deer on the coordinating side of the road. There was no way I was going to fall asleep on the drive back since the deer count was up to about 16 when I stopped counting. I got into Mom's around 1:45am.
Then it was off to Chris & Heather's house to see the girls before gymnastics. This is when the girls sat in front of me and told me simultaneously that they had Jesus in their hearts. My heart was overjoyed. I already had been told the good news by Brooke (bc I threatened her to keep me in the loop of things) but it was wonderfully delightful to hear them say the words.
Popped into see Dan & Amanda Tillman and see sweet Emerson. She's crawling now and so stinking cute!!!
Ended the day with dinner at The Moorman's. Ashley has now become a workout/health nut and looks amazing. The boys haven't changed other than growing like weeds. Mel and I chatted away like usual. I wish all days in Valdosta were this way.
My Dad's birthday. I did sleep in a little. I shed some tears about how much I missed him.
I had some errands to run this day, but I just bypassed it all. My bff, Stacey, took half the day off so I could spend time with her and Bailey. I can't say how much I appreciated that. It helped me not be sad and made me feel very special and loved.
