I had another good day yesterday. I got to stay home. Had to watch the grandbabies half day. Really don't mind that though, they are little sweeties, although one was very cranky and didn't want to sleep. My eating was right on target most of the day. The only thing I could fault myself with is at night I had a craving for sweets. I couldn't go anywhere and don't have any money anyway, so I mixed up some peanut butter and jelly and ate it without bread.  I don't think that was too bad though. I didn't have a huge amount. I also weighed myself and I was down another 2 lbs. Thats 6 lbs in one week. 7 more to go to meet my surgery requirement. Best of all, I have another full day of no caring for my mom and bro, no babysitting. The day is mine to be as productive or non productive as I want to be. Still can't go anywhere, but the car being broke is a great excuse to get out of some of what I consider obligations and feel guilt free. My mom and bro can't complain I'm not going there because they know I don't have a way. I feel so free. My time is my own and I don't have to feel like I'm shurking responsibilities. I so needed this break. My math is taking alot of my time though, so when things get normal I'm going to have to make a schedule so I can fit in school, writing, and writing groups, bible study, care taking and house cleaning. I don't know how I'm going to do it, but I will. Oh yeah, I need to add exercise to that list. I guess I'll have to get up earlier and cut out tv. I am determined to finish my degree. I have waited so long. I also want to keep working on my writing and finish my book and hopefully get it published.  Well, I'd better get to. Thank you all for listening and for all your s upport.
