Weigh In not so good .........

Well I was up .8 at TOPS weigh in last night, I know it's not much but it was enough to get my sorry butt pushed out of the quarterly challenge.  I know I haven't been paying as much attention to my food as I should have been.  I've been working some pretty long hours and they are about to increase again.  I'm going to work Saturday's and next week 12 hour days.  The overtime is a much needed commodity in our home right now till we get this mess straightened out over hubby's disability.  I'm probably good from now till the end of March so will get it while they are generous enough to offer it.

I'm letting you know that I will probably not be posting daily till the overtime is done.  I sometimes just come home and fall into bed.  Trying to maintain my health so I can keep up the pace so getting lots of rest.

Skippy, I have 13 beautiful grandchildren ranging in age from 21 to 2 months.  Some are biological and some are chosen but they all get equal amounts of love from Nana and Papa.  Not only did I get to spend the weekend with the one turning 13 but I got to spend Sunday with 2 of my granddaughters......life doesn't get any better than that!

I always appreciate your comments so keep them coming.  Blogging has become a way of life for me now and I cannot imagine my life without you all in it. 


  1. I can't believe you all are called Nana and Papa too! My parents are the same to my kids and I have never seen the two names used together - a Nana here - a Papa there, but never Nana and Papa together like my folks. It brought tears to my eyes. I miss them so much. And WOW, HOLY WOW 13 is impressive Tessa - how do you keep up. I wouldn't know what to do with one, but I..um, can wait. [And "they", the kids are waiting too - a little bit younger than yours I think - 22 yo and below] So we can breath a bit. Congratulations - your kids and grandkids are so beautiful. I love when you share the pics.

    Please don't work too hard. Overtime is great for the money, but not for the stress and lack of sleep.

    Don't worry about posting, of course - we will always be here. :)

  2. Busy Busy Busy! Don't worry about not being able to post, make sure you're taking care of yourself that's what's important :)
    I'm right there with you on the gain. Even if it's not a lot, I know how you feel! But .8 isn't a lot and you can make up for it next week!
    Hang in there!

  3. I just wanted to pop in and say that I am thinking of you! Make sure you take care of yourself the best that you can in the middle of all of the overtime...we will all miss you, of course, but you and your family have to come first.
