Tomorrow is December and I am excited for that! It is nice that November is done. Disturbing what was discovered in my family when I visited. My brother is having severe memory issues. Blocks that happened even a year ago or as little as a few months ago are completely gone. This makes me wonder how bad that will get. He is only 2 yrs 9 months older than I am. Mom was acting up quite a bit and upsetting many and getting upset herself. She seemed better Saturday night and Sunday. Even my father said he didn't know what is going on with my brother but he felt bad for his kids. I made sure to spend extra close quality time with each of them separately for a few hours a day while I was there. And made sure they knew we love them very much. I tried to show support to my sister in law. She has always been on my radar to not trust, but everyone needs support when their spouse is disruptive. Dad seemed okay for the most part. I helped him where ever they allowed me to. He even hugged everyone hello and good bye. He is usually less affectionate. I have concern inside me for everyone over there, but it is nice to be home too.

My ankle started hurting with sharp pain with in the last 4 hours of the drive home last night. I think it is the nasty rain/sleet we are getting. It is swollen. Hubby told me to ice/heat it today and see if that helps. The sharp pain in still there. I don't believe I injured it but I did take walks in the ice and snow over the trip in effort to cool off, exercise and get away a little. I will try to walk on it today and attempt to ride my bike. I don't want to make it worse but I don't want it to freeze up either. I have some exercises the doctor gave me that are gentle and I can do those. As far as cardio goes though, I will have to just give it a go and see how it does.

I weighed myself today. 205. emoticon I guess I am not mad at that even if it is pounds to work off. Dad's scale was GREAT! It said I was 13 pounds lighter than my scale!!! I hadn't been that low in I don't know how long! I soaked it in even though I knew it was wrong lol.

Rain and sleet sound like it has let up. Back to school, work, errands, chores and all that good stuff. I am more in full effect tomorrow. Did the laundry at the folks before we left so that is one thing out of the way. Still need to unpack though. Next stop, remembering a dear friend I lost December 4th last year. Then my and my husbands birthdays, then Christmas and New Years. OH THE TIME HAS FLOWN!!! Just a blink and it is gone.

I am happy to be back to being able to eat with more control. I think a nice light salad would feel great for everyone tonight!

Off to my day! emoticon

    I just caught up on the last of your blogs. You had quite a Thanksgiving! I'm sorry that your family is going through all that it is, but I'm glad you were there to try and bring cohesiveness to the table. Maybe that, more than you cooking, is what they really needed. You seem to be a pretty good peace keeper, even if it's to your detriment sometimes. I hope you get a bit of relaxation time now that you're home :)
