Wow, it is the end of the week already. I don't remember a week going so fast. I remember Wednesday and the suddenly, it is Saturday. I was going to hang out with my friend, Star but she is not feeling too well and having a rough day. Maybe next week as I won't have any lessons again for the weekend. Kelly wants to get together too so maybe the three of us can hang out together.
I am watching RV on TV again. I have the movie and I have seen it several times. It is a very funny movie, very funny. Then again, it is Robin Williams. Kristen Chenoweth is also in it and I just love her. She sings beautifully too.
Tomorrow is Father's Day. I tend to ignore that day. It is a day that I use to buy Mom stuff because in reality she had to be both Mom and Dad from the time I was young. I actually really don't remember him at all. I only know what he looks like because I found an old photo album that had a picture of him in it. it does make sense that I don't remember him as I haven't seen in over 35 years. I don't really know if he is even alive at this point, although I doubt it. He would be 80 something at this point. I tried to find him when I was in my 20s, but I didn't. Last I heard, he was in Texas. That is where the stepmonster is from. I didn't like her too much. She didn't like us either. I remember right after Dad got remarried (for the 3rd time) she told us to call her Mommy. Yeah, that didn't fly too much with me as I had a Mommy and she was in Michigan. At the time, Dad lived in Ohio. I do hope that tomorrow goes by quickly.
Last night I went to bed super early because I was so tired. Unfortunately, I woke up again at 2 am and was wide awake for about 30 minutes before going back to sleep. I woke up on my own at about noon for a change. I woke before my alarm, which is so unusual for me. I don't generally wake up before my alarm on a day where I need to get up early for teaching. I was so excited about lessons today though because Camille is back! Yes, my little one that had moved and quit because I was too far away, well, she is back! Camille will have every other week lessons for an hour each. I am so thankful she is back. I missed her! She is such a good student. Brianna had to cancel and reschedule for next week because of Father's Day. I was disappointed but it IS Father's Day weekend. I am not sure when she is going to have her lesson next week, but I should find out next week sometime. Emily had her lesson today instead of yesterday because she went to a birthday party. She had a good time. Apparently, they went swimming and played tag. All in all, it was a good teaching day since I did have Camille and Emily. I have no lessons tomorrow. Tomorrow in church they are going to have a special something for Father's Day. I imagine afterwards I will be taking my usual after church nap! Other than that, I have no plans. I did some laundry today so I am set for the week.
I am not sure how much weight I have lost but these shorts are actually getting a bit big so I am glad about that. I am trying not to weigh myself because I can get upset over numbers and I am trying to not be upset over numbers. It is about being healthy, not a number on the scale. My friend, Missy had the sleeve surgery. So far she has lost about 140 pounds. I am so proud of her. She had the surgery a year ago. At first she had a lot of problems, but I think they have been worked out. I did think of surgery a year ago, but since I have a blood disorder, I am not a candidate. I also know several people who had the different surgeries and have had problems ever since. I don't want to wait a year to have the surgery too because there is so much stuff you have to do before hand. But since I am not a candidate, none of it matters in the long run. Besides, you have to change your eating lifestyle before and after the surgery so I am just changing my eating lifestyle now. It has been since May 26. That was the day I changed how and what I ate. I have done pretty well so far. I have had a small piece of cake with raspberries in the frosting, but I only ate one piece, which is good for me. Pretty much each day I have eaten lots of vegetables. That was my goal, to eat healthier and lots of vegetables. I have wonderful berries in the fridge right now. I will have some for dessert tonight. A bowl of blueberries and strawberries without cream (I don't have any and I don't want any) maybe a bit of milk. I am working on drinking more milk. That is still rather hard since I don't eat a lot of cereal anymore. I did buy some better for me cereal since the type that I have in the house is Captain Crunch, which is FILLED with sugar. I am starting to feel a bit better with the pain level now that I eat better. I figure in about a year I will have lost a lot a weight and I will really be feeling better. I do not expect all the fibro pain to go away because I will still have Fibro, but it should help some of the arthritis pain as well as some fibro pain.
Anyways, I will be heading to bed in a short while. I am still on Harry Potter number 6. I am not sure if I will finish it tomorrow or not, but I am not in a hurry so it doesn't matter when I finish it.
