It's Friday again!


I can't be the only one who sees Friday's coming faster and faster!  The weeks are clicking by and suddenly it's Friday again!  AND on Friday's I link up with Mrs. 4444 for Friday Fragments!




A little recap of things we didn't talk about during the week.....


Soon, very soon, I will be having two very special visitors and I can't wait to show you the latest photos of them!  I'll just leave you hanging on that one!


**********************


Is it curious to anyone else that as we age we spend more time in doctor's offices?  Seems as if that has become my new social life.  


**********************


My daddy, my brothers and my husband all own small busineses and our youngest works in a small business.  Small businesses employ people and cause the economy to grow.  As much as possible, buy from small businesses.  This month we are supporting this business.  This is not paid advertising....in fact I just thought of adding that here.  


************************


Speaking of stress and socializing..........we were weren't we...... I went to the dentist two days this week.  Not because I enjoy their company although I do in a different setting , but because I wear a bite plate (some people call it a splint or night guard) and I grind my teeth so badly at night that I have to have it adjusted.....often.  I clench during the day, but I can't wear that thing twenty four hours a day....I do have to eat you know!  If it is out of adjustment, I wake with my jaw and head aching.  Ouch!


*************************
So you won't think that I NEVER have any interaction with my peers, I met with a blog friend this week and then had lunch with a good friend.  Yesterday, I met my cousin and her husband, my sister and my brother for lunch.  We ate at another local small business.......you may begin to see a thread in this post......a Mexican restaurant that is beyond good. Which makes it difficult to keep to a diet.  But, I have learned over these past few months to just eat a portion of a meal and take the rest home.  So last night the Superhero had one of his favorites for supper, thanks to my sister and me watching our weight!  
Speaking of which.....much to my delight I've lost nineteen pounds as of today!  


***********************
Please remember to be careful if you're driving on this Memorial Day!  Also stop and say thanks to our veterans and our active forces.  I'm very thankful for my son who is a Navy veteran.  
God bless America and God bless you this weekend.

That's all folks,  for another Friday, I'm all fragged out!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I understand exactly what you mean about doctors. I found out I'd scheduled THREE this week. One I canceled because I was sick and one THEY canceled because the doctor's wife is having her baby! Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

Hmmmm, wonder who those visitors will be! You've got my curiosity piqued!

DH and I try to patronize small business as well ... even when we travel, we prefer to stay at the small, individually owned hotels/motels.

Congrats on the 19 lbs. gone! Woo hoo!

Dear Nancy, you gave me so much to think about this Friday: weight lost (I keep trying but achieve little because I can't seem to avoid the refrigerator!); small businesses--yes I try to support them; appointments with doctors and dentists---and vets for the three cats with whom I live; and most importantly, the men and women who fight our wars. Thank you.

Peace.

Nineteen Pounds! That is awesome, I am very proud of you becuase I know how hard dieting is. But you are doing it! Enjoy the long weekend Nancy ;0)

Dawn said...

So I'm thinking the grades were okay this year, huh??

Weight - I'm on the journey again. How are you doing it? Didn't know you were! Good for you.

Doctors - I finally got in for my mammo and dental cleaning. I MUST get in for my year check-up before the end of June. Don't want to go and weigh!

It's been two weeks since I posted, but finally got something down tonight. I can't seem to think these days. I haven't even been reading posts!

Have a great holiday and wonderful week.

Dawn said...

Re your comment on my post: The end of that conversation was, after the young man moved off, "Little girls shouldn't wear earrings either." Smart one, that!

Donna said...

19 pounds?? Great for You Girl!!!
We also own a small business...I try to shop only with Other small businesses but it's getting mighty hard with all the closings...sigh.
Enjoy your day Nancy!

Good Morning from Denver!
thanks for the sweet compliment! You know how I adore flowers..and the best way I know to enjoy their beauty long after the blooms are finished ..is with photos!
My passion since I can no longer paint due to arthritis..
Congrats on your weight loss!!
So proud of you!!
Small businesses ...can't say enough GOOD things about them..
but these new tax laws regarding the healthcare..is hitting them very hard!!
I try to stay away from politics on blogs..I'll just say this..
SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESSES..
big boxes like Wmart and T**get have forced many to close their doors..
I'm off..still do not have a destination address yet..
will let you know as possible when to be expecting me!!
warmest hugs..Loui♥

Congrats on the 19 lb loss!! I need to lose some weight, but I just seem to be hungry all the time. Care to share how you're losing?
Hope your weekend was a good one! Have a great day !
