Ready for Bed

Tomorrow's post will bring some weight, measurement updates... and some pictures from today. We spent the day at my sister's house in Brenham celebrating my Dad's birthday, my neice - Megan's birthday, and my brother-in-law - Robert's birthday.

We did some of our typical get together things - reading magazines, talking, and eating... but since it was rainy today - we also planned to go bowling with all the kids, but that didn't work out - so we instead went roller skating... or well the kids and a couple adults did... then a couple of us walked around the rink with the little kids in our tennis shoes. I walked my little sister, Gabby, around at least 10 times - and she had a really good time.

We then headed back to Cathi's house again to have dinner and birthday cake. Cathi is a fabulous cook, and I managed to do really well with my food today - in terms of no nausea or any bad feelings at all. She made a meatloaf for dinner, which I have had some problems with here at home... but she made it with tomato juice instead of tomoato sauce... it was a great trick that I might have to use to keep my own moist - I really think it helped a bunch!


  1. oooh, I used to roller skate for HOURS as a kid. Such a great workout! I know of a post-WLS patient who's now into roller derby.

    Glad you had fun!

  2. Sounds like you guys had a blast. I miss being close enough to my sister and her kids to do the fun stuff like that on a regular basis. But they will be here this weekend :) WOO HOO !!


Thank you so much for your comments. I really enjoy getting feedback on my writing!
