Nothing new in our world. Same ole same 0le.
I wish Colin would decide what he would like to be for Halloween. I've asked him 4 times
& got 4 different answers. :)

I've had some health issues this week. If my health hold up; I will move most of the furniture back into the master bedroom. Thank goodness for the furniture mover pads. G doesn't have the strength to help much. The furniture mover pads allow me to move the furniture alone. I hope I get a chance this weekend to start work on my craftroom.

My poor craftroom keeps getting put on the back burner or I change my mind & want it different. I have a design all layed out for the room & I hope it works.

G is still suffering from neuropathy. I wish it would go away, it's very painful & disruptive.
He doesn't complain or gripe. I'm tired of it so I only imagine how he feels about it.
Please say a special prayer that it will leave soon. It's tough on him still not working.
Men put some of their value in the paycheck they bring home. I try to encourage him
but it doesn't always work.

I'm doing well with my eating/health plan. Someone brought donuts, muffins & sausage rolls from a fabulous bakery this morning. It wasn't that hard to resist the sweet stuff.
It's still tough to see cookies at home but I haven't had one in 3 weeks.
Colin got a super in school so he was entitled to a treat. He chose ice cream. He was getting
his ice cream yesterday & asked if I wanted any. I said No, Thanks he said that's right
you are trying to get healthier.

I have an aunt that lives close to the coast in Texas. She's here safe & sound. We don't know about her home. Her area was pounded pretty hard by hurricane Ike.
She took Colin & my niece to Incredible pizza yesterday. Colin was so excited.

The females went to see the movie The Family that Preys. I enjoyed the movie. Of course living in ATL for years. I've seen many Tyler Perry's plays. I think the cast in this movie was great. I love Katie Bates & Alfe Woodard; they were wonderful. Sanaa Lathan played a different type role. I think she did a great job.

It was great to get out of the house & spend a little time w/ females.

I visited Julie Friday. She looked good & was eating her first meal. Hopefully she get to go home today.

UPDATE on Julie

This is the email I received this morning.

This morning they received the pathology report from the surgery. At first it was believed that all the cancer was removed with the surgery. The doctor removed all the affected area in the colon and a few lymph nodes. He thought the lymph nodes looked good but the toxicology report this morning shows that there is cancer in the lymph nodes too. This means that after healing from her surgery, chemotherapy will be needed to continue to fight the cancer.

Gerald and Julie appreciate all your support and prayers.

Julie surgery

Julie's surgery went well & she doesn't have the have chemo. I'm happy for them. I think chemo is the worst. I might feel differently if it wasn't still affecting my husband negatively.

She really doesn't want visitors for vanity reasons. I may just drop in & not stay long.
I'll talk w/ her husband tomorrow & see what he recommends.

I love this cooler weather

The weather has been so pleasant this year. It's not unbearably hot in September. It feels like October & I love it.
I'm on a special eating program for this month. I've not eating any fried foods, sugar, processed foods, or white foods. I had major sugar withdrawals & felt like crap for a few days but now I feel really good. It has been very difficult avoid all of these foods I love. It seems that work is extremely challenging. They are having food days almost everyday. Of course the food days is all food I can not eat.
