Monday Meanders 7-11


At least the Cubs can't lose any games or ground over the next three days.

Meanwhile ....

Child Services in Indiana really screwed up. The 13 year old Choate boy was beaten to death by two years ago - thirteen people knew of the abuse and Child Services had been to the residence at least twice and never set foot in the home - the home in which the lad was forced to live in a dog cage. The parents aren't the only people who belong in jail.

Much yard work done yesterday. And two pounds lost while doing the work. Wow. Better than being on a diet. Who knew?

I have been overweight for a long time. I have recently (in the past couple of months) taken to limiting portions, eliminating sugars (Type II Diabetic), and eating a VERY light supper - and no later than 6pm. I have begun exercising, as well. Some. Anyway, in the last two months I have lost 18 pounds. When I get back to 180, I'll post pictures. Not 'til then.

#2 and #3 Sons, plus Bitsy's brother, all chipped in and helped with the yardwork. It's why we got so much done. #1 son is house sitting for friends and couldn't attend the 'party'. I wonder if we could change places.

Congratulations on the weight loss, 18 pounds is a lot of weight you don't have to carry around anymore. Still working on that myself, although I have to say my holiday in France did not help much on that part, I put on 2 kilos! :-(
