Last night I made a tasty salad with my hubby's help. It had cucumbers, tomato, onion, garlic, artichokes, olive oil, vinegar, salt, beans, pepper, basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme and marjoram. That salad I will make again sometime soon! My son picked out the artichokes. HE only will eat them if they are on a pizza.

I have been doing very well with my food. I am very proud of myself for that. My blood sugar has been pretty good too. It could be better but I am working at it.

For each person their system of losing weight is different. Mine, I need to focus on my eating first. That is a big demon of mine. Then I add in extra exercise, rest, water, and so on. January is almost over. I am almost through it. I haven't lost it...completely...yet lol. I am taking it moment by moment. Focusing on the minute I am in. After the month is done I can look farther down the road and plan some fun things. I am looking forward to getting away sometime. I need it. Just the removal of the every day into something new will feel so good.

My youngest son is really having a hard time in school. We are helping him and in touch with the school. He is really struggling with the juggling of everything this year. I do believe the school should change some things that would help kids keep up and even get ahead. Like the simple taking the book, folders or notes home. The school does not allow this in some classes. And yes, I do understand they don't want to take the chance of losing a text book when they don't have enough for the class. But notes and folders that were brought in by the student?? That makes no sense to me.

Oh that kid is tough and so brilliant. He just needs to figure out how to function without much effort and he will be golden. Love that kid and will do whatever I can to help him without doing it myself. HE must learn. He will and is learning. In his own time in his own way. I always tell him...not everyone learns the same. Blind learn differently than those that see. Def learn differently than those that can hear. You learn differently too, it doesn't mean it is wrong. It works for you and that makes it right. As long as you are always moving forward in even the smallest way you are succeeding. There is no disappointment as long as you try with your all. It is when you don't even try is when disappointment comes in. He gets upset with his grades. That shows me he cares. I know for a fact he tries his best. He will get there. I believe in him!

    I know you were talking about your son regarding learning differently, but I feel like you were talking to me. I suppose I needed to read that today (even though this was yesterday's post lol). He's obviously brilliant like you.
