Plans, news, whatever...

Sad news. My brother in law's aunt, who was living with he and my sister and their kids passed away. Now, truth be told, it wasn't unexpected- she was 102. But, what a wonderful lady, God fearing Irish lady, who always had impeccable manners, and was just a great role model.
The day before she died, she had told my sister that she was ready to "go be with Jesus". When my sister mentioned that, I told her that was completely legitimate, and basically, don't be surprised if she does. That next morning, she died, in her sleep. Thankfully, she did not have to be taken by emts to the Hospital, her physician signed off on her death warrant, and she has gone to the funeral home. Sad for the nephews, sad for everyone.

On a completely different front, I have eaten healthy for a whole (almost) week! No peanut butter eggs- no chocolate period! I have cut way back on the carbs, and yesterday I had a HUGE hankering for an ice cream sundae, but I FOUGHT it off. I had cereal when I got home. Phew, that was hard. I keep remembering how my clothes are fitting, and it's good incentive. I don't have a scale at home, never had. I never got into weighing myself- it's too depressing- I go by how I look.

In a little bit, I plan to go look at some property I saw for lease- just a few acres- but it is fenced!!! I am not sure if it's still available, but I want to see it- shall take some pics for you all.
It will not be big enough to do big outruns, but all that other stuff it will be fine for.

On the dog front, Danny is learning more every day- especially impulse control. Lots of stay at the door before I let you out, that sort of thing. Oh, and his wee eye has kicked in. I kick the ball for him, and he turned on his stalky eye for the first time as I would play with the ball. Cute to see that. He is getting hairier- YIKES. Oh, and BIG NEWS! I had my first Border Collie hair in my pancake batter today!!! It's official, I have a Border Collie!!!

Well, off to do all that I need to today, and will report back on the property.
