Hello, my name is Lou and I am a carb-oholic. I love chips, potatoes, bread, etc. Unfortunately, I have the metabolism of a snail (I don’t really know if that is slow or not, but you get the picture). I have the bone structure of a football player and the height of a midget. Does that seem a little unfair? Despite my size, I am able to walk far distances, run across airports, and climb mountains. I am a donkey – not in the way you think. Well, maybe I am an a$$ sometimes, but I am talking about my continued plodding along, my sure-footed-ness, and some stubbornness. This morning on GMA I heard that drinking just one diet drink a day could make you gain weight rather than lose weight. Some doctor did tests on rats to show that fake sugar could mess up your mind. No one knows how or if it really does this, but some of the rats gained weight. Maybe I am a rat. Whatever! It is just not fair.
Today is a dreary day. I treated myself to a pedicure, if that can be considered a treat.
My mom is feeling better and thinking clearer. She was pretty sick with some flu/bug. If you talked to her this last weekend, you might want to call her again, because she was pretty out of it last weekend. Today would have been her 53 anniversary. I'm not sure she thought about it. None of us were ever good with birthdays and anniversaries. Mom has lots on her mind these days - she told me that someone had put a contract on her old house – yeha! It would be great if she were rid of that albatross. It would also put pressure on us to get her moved – I work well under pressure. Many of you wrote and were concerned with moving Mom after 31 years in the same house. It won’t be easy, but it will be good. The new house is light, airy, and bright. It is a good size and can hold her stuff, but it will be a good reason to clean out the old junk. It is a good time for it too. If things get sentimental, we will just make Jesse help. She will hold up some junk and say, "Is this important to you? When was the last time you used it? Let it go!" Jesse is good. In fact, I think she should hire out as a de-junker.
Speaking of Jesse, take a look at her new blog and then visit Ashley’s blog for a younger view of the world.
