Life in Md

I feel  like I have been avoiding my blog for a long time.  Actually, I have been avoiding everyones' blogs for a long time.  I have not been at the computer to go blogging in ages.  Part of it is George.  For a little guy, he's pretty demanding-which is our fault anyway.  When we got him, the backyard fencing was not Yorkie proofed; there were areas he could get out under the fencing.  It took us a while to get to Home Depot  to get deterrent materials, and in that time he because accustomed to lots of walks.  So, now rather than open the side door and let him out, I have to take him on walks.  It's okay but it really can disrupt my computer time.

I also feel like I haven't had much to share as I have been feeling like I go to work, come home, deal with George, or to bed, get up and start over again.  But that's not really true, I have a lot to share!

Lilli came in for a while after her field trip in Canada and we made the progress we needed to on the wedding.  We have a date, we have a place, and we have a party!  All else will work itself out now.  The date setting has been a major item and now it's clear:  Jack and Lilli ARE getting married, it's going to happen in 2013, and we're going to have a blast.  Of course, we have already touched on Family Fun Day aspects:  the minor theme running through this is Dr. Who, and some of the family will definitely have a problem with that.  Oh well..... I guess they don't have to come if they don't want to, right?  The "save the date" cards are at the proof stage, and will be printed and mailed out shortly.  At present, the list is 30 or so over what the party venue will seat, but that includes people we know won't be able to come.

I hit a landmark at WW this week reaching a 25 pound weight loss.  It feels good, my blood pressure is normal and continues to be, and I'm hoping that a few more pounds can find someone else's hips to adorn.  I'm sure all the walking of George has helped, but I like to think it's because I've made some new habits of healthier eating.

So, in a nutshell not much else is happening.  We're all set in case the "Frankenstorm" hits (well, when the storm hits) with wood, food, batteries, and everything else we need when the power goes out.  the Powers That Be are also taking this pretty seriously, schools have already been cancelled, trains up the northeast corridor and planes have been cancelled.  Sandy promises to be major-if it is, I won't be back on for a while.

Please send a prayer off to my friend Beebee who is having some problems with platelets at the moment and is hospitalized.  She needs to get back to her family, and any prayers can help!
