Meme and much much more

Update on my friends daughter: She (my friends daughter) made the unbelievably hard and brave decision to be removed from ALL life support on Thursday. They moved her to a Hospice center and all of her family are there sitting by her side trying to make her remaining time here on earth as enjoyable as can be. I can not begin to understand what the family is going through. I can only hope and pray for them all.

Thanks to Alicia, I get to be included in the Meme questions that are going around the Blogshpere.

1. What is your current obsession? Getting back into shape. I get a little moody if I don't get some sort of exercise in every day. I am even up for mowing the lawn.

3. Recall a fond childhood memory? Oh, this is easy. BACON!!!! My cousins and I would wake up every Saturday and Sunday morning at my grandmothers to the smell of bacon frying. 1 whole pound each day between 4 of us. Hence my obsession with working out.

4. What’s for dinner? My husband LOVES Philly Cheese Steaks. We found a great place a block away from our house and now he has made us get one every day since Friday. Again, could have something to do with my answer to #1.

Anywho- My daughter decided she didn't want to sleep last night, so instead she poked me in the face and pulled my hair all night. Moomy, seeping. No dear, not anymore. Gotta love a two year old.
It is a 4 day work week with a holiday, so I am pumped. Should be a good one. I am bound and determined to put a positive spin on everything from here on out. Life could be worse. Bless you Nelson Family and my thought are always with you!!!!!!
