We are back home now after 4 hours in the ER plus some time at the pharmacy to get some medication. My husband is on pain meds and he is sleeping (maybe knocked out would be the better description). The doctor diagnosed gallstones and I heard they are really painful. Hoping for a speedy recovery. Thanks for all the well wishes! ~~***~~ Wir sind jetzt wieder daheim nachdem wir 4 Stunden in der...

Do Life Challenge - week 4 Write down four things you did well today. I enjoyed spending this last day with my grandparents. They are on their way back to Germany now. I enjoyed one last meal with them at Panera. Yummy and so much cheaper than a meal at the airport. I learned about gate passes today. I never knew that there are reason when you could get a pass to go to the gate w/o having a...

Now we will get another one and this one will go into the guest...

Do Life Challenge - week 4
I am so busy with my grandparents here that I never wrote about the Do Life Challenge week 4. Ben posted the following in the forum on Sunday. There are no rules on how to connect, but it might be easiest to do so in this thread so that you can get an idea of who is connected and whatnot. At first I wasn’t sure how I was going to do it but I found 2 Do Life Buddies. Yesterday I shared...

Emailed my two Do Life buddies and exchanged my goals with them. Ordered fish with rice for dinner. And I added fries as my second side instead of some veggies. The second part wasn’t very smart, I...

Do Life Challenge - week 4 Write down four things you did well today: I went for a run. 3.5 miles that hurt and weren’t fun but I am very happy I finished it anyway. Didn’t give in to the temptation of eating more than necessary. After our appetizer I was feeling so full already that I changed my main meal to a soup. Best decision ever today. Saw lots of manatees today. Went...

Added little stories to each pictures as well. I just did...
