Starting Naturally Slim

Day one

I am starting the Naturally slim Program this week.  So I decided to go to my Dr.   I wanted to get weighed and measured.  It was a real eye opener.  I know that I am big...but seeing the numbers made it all so real.   
What I really am working on this week is no soda pop's.  Which will be the hardest part of this program.  I also am going to try just cutting down on amount of food I am eating.  I also am continuing to walk each day.  Some days it more than others.  But I am trying to get my exercise in each week.  Haven't done that in years.  
Need to get my blood pressure under control.  It is 165/112.  Yikes!!
wish me lots of luck!!

National sibling day

Stacy, me Thomas, Lonnie, Karen Sue, and Tyler

This photo is four years old.  But I will always love this picture of us together.  It is probably the only picture of all of us together.  How crazy is that?   I am not sure why we didn't take more pictures thru the years.   I can almost guarantee that there will never be a picture of all of us together. 
The main reason is Stacy will never come back to Oklahoma.  He is having health and legal issues. If I am ever going to see him again  I need to plan a trip to El Paso Texas.  It is around 10 hours away.  Maybe I can plan a long weekend to see him this summer.  Trying to figure out if it is cheaper to drive or fly.  Would have more time if I fly to to see him.   
This family is my world!

With a heavy heart my Aunt Ginger passed today.  She has been in bad health for awhile.  Aunt Kathy and I was planning a trip to see her in May.  Aunt Ginger was full of life.  She loved to joke around and have fun.  Every single trip to visit with her she always shares great memories with me.  
Aunt Ginger was always offering us Little Debbie's snack foods.   In fact when she passed she had so many boxes of assorted snacks that it was almost comical.  
I know she is no longer in pain.  Fly high sweet angel your going to be missed greatly!!! 

Dinner with Aaron's family

Aaron, Clifford, Angel and me

Angel Michelle and baby Clifford

Angel being a big girl!

A perfect evening with Aaron and his family!  We met at Applebee's in Duncan Okla around 4pm. Was very nice to spend time with his family.  I need to be more involved with my boys and their families.  
Wesley was sick so he stayed with his great grandparents.  Hope that next time we can get all the family to go eat with us.  Truth be known I wouldn't mind taking them to McDonald's or Braums 
so the little kids can play on the playground.  I'm not sure if Aaron and Michelle take the time to let them run and play at either fast food place. so that would be a treat for the kiddo's.  Maybe I should take Angel and Wesley for a afternoon to give the parents a break.

Visiting Grandchildren

It was time to go see the grandchildren.  They are so cute and lovable.  I am very fortunate to have these kiddo's in my life.  They have so much energy that a visit with them wears me out. Just kidding.  
I am trying to spend more time with my family.  It is so hard to take time out of my already busy schedule.  But I don't want them not knowing me or thinking I don't care about them.  So every week I am going to try to see all three sons and their family's.  That is my personal goal for this year.

New Orleans bound!!

Madri Gras here we come!! I am so excited!!!
Kathy and I are headed to Shreveport tonight.  She will pick me up at 7:15pm from Legal Shield and we will head toward La.   We will stay at the Horseshoe Casino and Resort.  It's my absolutely favorite place to stay when in Shreveport.

We will get up early and head to New Orleans.  We are going to get on the Creole Queen at 1:30 pm.  We are taking the historic cruise.   We are headed to Chalmette Battlefield.  That should be lots of fun.  I am extremely excited about our trip to New Orleans!!!

Baby Grigsby

I can't believe how fast Baby Clifford is growing.  He is so happy most of the time.  He makes my heart happy.  I need to get his picture taken pretty soon.  
There is nothing like having a grandbaby.  As much as I love my children  the love for my grandson is a whole new level.   
I am beyond blessed!!  I love the fact that his momma and daddy take such good care of him.
