My son is out of school this week and coming to help my husband. My husband thought with the help he has hired he could get the few pieces of skin (15 ft long metal panels) on his big machine warehouse. He sadly misjudged how not back to normal he is and the help he hired has a strong back but no background and it was exhausting my husband trying to tell him how to do each little thing and showing him so much. With my son there yesterday my husband kept going on about how good it was to have someone who knew what to do and how they still worked so well together. I was there a few minutes and realized that my son worked with his dad for so many years that he anticipates what needs to be done and gets there before my husband, giving him the easier (though still exhausting ) jobs without him ever realizing it. Grateful to him for giving up his only week off for this.
Grateful to my DIL for insisting that my son come help out today instead of doing what they had already planned for him to do today and altering her schedule a bit so he could be here. At first, he had planned to take today off to do something on their to-do list. When he showed up he said she had insisted that they could do it later. She's a keeper.
Allergy pills. I haven't needed them in ages, but yesterday I needed them badly and they did a wonderful job.
That first cup of coffee in the mornings.
The screened room in the mornings and afternoons. I love starting and ending my day listening to the different birds.
Realizing while ago how much decaf I have been drinking lately. Somehow I have been craving warm drinks, but when I went for a refill I used the last creamer in the container, which I just replaced 10 days ago. I normally carefully portion out 40 calories worth a day, but in 10 days I have used 223 portions at 10 calories a piece. Even if I have been cooking healthier instead of ordering what they offer and have cut out having a bowl of cereal at night and lost two pounds this week, I have gotten over 2000 extra calories in a 10 day period. WoW! That could add up to a pound in two weeks. I gotta get off the coffee except for my morning cup and switch to green tea when I want a warm drink, which I like with no sugar or cream in it. It's the little things that do me in when I don't pay attention.
