          Note to self.  Never ever ever type an entry when you have taken your sleeping pill, it causes spell check to malfunction.

          I slept poorly today because my wonderful son's decided to keep trying to call me.  I finally answered the phone because I was worried something must be wrong, but no, they just decided to call.  It sounds like they are having a good trip so far.  Just left Ohio.  They didn't leave until 10 so they got a late start.  I am not sure what time they will be here tomorrow but it will be great to have them both back.  noisy but great, LOL.

        I keep thinking about my call with my sister.  It is so weird.  You can't talk politics with them, you can't talk about alot of things because if it is different then their beliefs it causes strain.  For years I didn't talk to my youngest sister because no matter what I said it made her angry.  We would have what we thought was a good visit and then I would hear later I made her mad about something.  I decided it was just easier not to talk to her.  I worried about her because she is not well, but my brother let me know how she was doing.  I have 2 nieces I would have liked to know better also.  Since we all live so far apart it was easy to drift apart.  My other sister has a niece I was really close to when she was young, but now never hear from.  My family just shrinks away.  Maybe I should have made more of an effort to stay in touch.  I have had so much on my mind lately.

     Sigh. I hate things like this so lets move on.  I can't change it anyway.   Last night of work tonight.  I am so happy.  It has been busy.  It was funny, last night all the nurses  were about the same age, 40's to 50's.  We were all talking about our aches and pains, our arthritis was in overtime time last night for us all.  So we decided to have a group groan.  You know what, it helps, LOL.  It was a fun group to work with and I have had some delightful patients this week.  Course I usually have delightful patients.  Gee, I get along with my patients, just not my family.

  Rick has been working away at my son's house.  It feels weird to say that.  Hopefully we will be ready to paint by Friday.  I have decided though I will paint around my bike riding.  We have done all things we had to do, now the painting isn't something I have to do so I can take time off and get ready for my ride.  I need it also.  How come you can spend 6 months taking off 20 pounds and put it on again with one poorly planned meal.? Not fair.

I'm glad it's the last night of work and you can get some much needed rest. I used to hate people calling me when I worked nights. It was normally double glazing salesmen who woke me up! I think my kids would have known better! I don't even need a poorly planned meal to put on weight, I can do it by just looking at food! Lol! Jeannette xx

I just have to look at a slice of bread and butter and I'm wearing it around my hips and bust.  hahahaha!
I'm glad you were able to have a good time at work.  Problems shared are problems less heavier.  Hmmm?  
Is that where we are going wrong?    Lol!
You are going to enjoy having your sons around you again.  I know what you mean about family but it's never too late you know.
Take care
Hugs

I've come to realize life is not fair if your a 40-something female when it comes to anything to do with weight, ugh!  Hope you have a pleasant night and the boys get in okay.  Hope you get a chance to talk to your sister.  De ;)

Glad you had fun at work. That's always nice.

I hope you get some rest Julie....you poor thing. I'm sorry about the mess with your sister, families are always the hardest people to get along with, probably because we just expect so much more from them. I hope it all resolves itself soon.

Love & Pooh Hugs,
Linda
