Feeling much better!

Wow, I 'm feeling so much better! Thank you all so much for your kind words and advice. I stuck with liquids yesterday and so far this morning and am feeling much better. Water is going down just fine. Hormones really affect band tightness for me and I'm just going to have to get it through my head that when I first start feeling the signs of tightness, I'm going to have to back off and just do liquids. I swear one day I'm going to catch on. Last night I went to school with my youngest and did his schedule for High School!!! Oh, the reality is setting in now! I can't believe both of my boys will be in High School next year! Wow! I told you guys about the painting I'm working on for a friend. It's going to go in his boat house and it's a crab, painted on wood. My husband cut the crab out on his fancy new saw for me out of 1/4" plywood and then we will glue the crab onto a piece of 1/2 ply. All I have left to do is glue it on and paint the shadows of the crab on the background. I'm excited with the way it's turned out, so I thought I'd share with you. I took the picture with my phone, so it's not the best pic in the world. Last week my hubby did a post about the gay men in my life and how they spoil me with compliments, complete understanding and beautiful flowers every time they come over. The next picture is a vase of flowers my friend T brought me from his yard, they are Snowball Viburnums and they are just stunning, so I thought I'd share that too!
The above was also taken with my phone, a little blurry, it was about 1 am and I had a little wine and some Champagne, so.... the painting next to it of the crazy dog is one of mine too.


I feel bad for all you Northerners who are still freezing up there, the weather is beautiful here and Spring has definitely sprung, but don't go getting to excited for me, we'll be wishing for Winter in no time when the 100 degree, 100% humidity appears. I hope you all have a great day, I'm looking forward to gingerly eating today and having no stuck episodes!


Big Hugs!

So glad you are feeling better (hormones totally affect my band too and you would think that after almost 2 years, I would know better!) Beautiful flowers!!!

Glad you are feeling better. The crab painting looks great. And as a child my family had two Snowball Viburnums bushes in our yard. One was pink and the other one white. They are so beautiful.

That crab is too cool!

I have random tightness issues and finally have resigned myself to liquids for 24 hours to help. It stinks, but it's better than the ongoing battle of too-tight. :)

those flowers are beautiful!! I love my gay guys but I wish they brought me flowers like that!
I'm glad your feeling better. I have been super tight this week too. It's crazy because 2 weeks ago I could have eaten a whole pig if I wanted to! Gotta love the band :)
