So, Friday is finally here! It seems like I’ve been waiting for this day a-l-l w-e-e-k long! I worked a lot. We ate homemade meals for lunch and dinner. I exercised in and out of the gym. I’m still planning on taking a rest day this week. After my baking fiasco last Sunday I’m not very inspired to bake or create anything new. The home remodeling allows me to do only so much but I know that if I keep cooking we’ll keep one of the normal things that make our family life enjoyable. Can you believe the 4th of July is next week? I can’t. Last year I was eating meat and we had the best bbq party ever at our house. We hosted two other couples from church. We ate well (Zeke’s a gifted cook) and we watched fireworks by the lake at night. It was an enjoyable time. This year we don’t have big plans like last year. I want to enjoy being with family, rest and get ready for our vacation. Sometimes you get so tired from all of the holiday cooking and hustling that you can’t enjoy the people. I’m slowly but surely learning to do both, entertain and enjoy those whom I am entertaining. So, we have yet another great American holiday. This joyous occasion doesn’t need to add pounds in the scale. I decided to bring my own vegetarian sausages or burgers with me when I go to a get together. I’ve done it once in my own home and it went pretty well. I don’t know if you remember but I told you last week or so that I was weighing myself every day and that wasn’t good for me. I stopped that and I can see a great difference in myself: I’m not anxious. I can live one day at a time, eat one meal at a time, forgive myself when I make mistakes and trust God that I will be stronger after I learn from my mistakes. Enough rambling for the week. Enjoy your weekend!
