2 years!!!

Well, I'm a couple days late with my announcement.
It's been 2 years since I quit smoking and I'm damn proud of myself for not smoking. It was hard a few times but I'm over it.

I've been back in hell for a month now and it seems like forever since I hugged my grandson for the last time, hugged my daughter and son.

It is cooling off here, only in the high 70's low 80's in the mornings but I'm just too lazy to get out there and walk.

World Diabetes Day

Today is World Diabetes Day. For more information please read these:

Yesterday (Friday the 13th,) was our son's birthday. He was born on Friday the 13th but sadly it has been an unlucky day for him. I did call him and sing Happy Birthday but our conversation was not at all happy. He could use lots and lots of prayers and positive thoughts so he can get his son back.

We had a "pre-Thanksgiving" dinner yesterday to try out some new recipes before we decide if we want to keep them. Fresh red peppers wtih green beans is a keeper while Baked Sweek & white potatoes is nasty. We also tried a Cajun spice rub on the chicken I cooked and that is a keeper too, we just need to make a liquid out of it so we can inject the turkey. So now on to try more recipes.

Another day

Here is the Diinky-Dyes Biscornu, it came with the scissors too!

So a couple weeks ago, after 7 years my DS and his girlfriend broke up. She left with their 3 year old son (my grandson) and moved back to her parents house. I am absoultely devistated, hurt, broken hearted and all that goes with it knowing I will lose my grandson. She told me she will never deny me seeing my grandson nor will she ever deny my son seeing him. As much as I would love to believe that, what is going to happen a few years down the road when/if she finds someone else or moves away. It just hurts so bad. My son is trying to get custody back but I don't know how well that will go. The sad part is, I can't seem to get in touch with my son, I've called and left messages but he has no over seas calling plan so if he doesn't answer his phone, I can't talk to him. He has no internet connection either.
I've gotten back to exercising and trying to eat better, and by drinking 2 litres of water a day my blood sugar numbers have gone down. I haven't lost any weight yet but I'm trying.
I was sick on Friday, fever, body aches, headache, tired & blah. Plus I had a severely pulled back muscle that hurt like a son of a bitch. Every time I tried to move or sit up, I saw stars and it took my breath away. The two were totally unrelated because by Saturday, the "flu" bug was gone but it still hurt like crazy to move. Sunday I was better and got back to exercise.
I'm trying to plan a "healthy" Thanksgiving dinner, I have the turkey already and trying to think of better side dishes. I did put up the Thanksgiving/Fall decorations, but I will NOT PUT UP CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS! Christmas SUCKS right now!

An announcement

Next week I'll have an exciting announcement to make.

Last week I finished a late Halloween project. I finished my Halloween biscornu by Dinky-Dyes Designs.

Tonight I started a Hinzeit project called Mini Block Give Thanks. I hope I can continue to work on it and have it done by Thanksgiving.

I'm excited that the Yankees won the World Series! The first time in 9 years and the first of many World Series wins in the new Stadium! I got up at 5AM to watch the game. then we watched the Parade down Broadway on Friday. WOO HOO, GO YANKEES!
