Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends. This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better. Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.
Together we can do this!
Another week down my friends – how are you doing? This week I have maintained my current weight loss so I’m feeling good about that. The scales are at least in my favor – hip hooray! I’m still not feeling 100% from the flu. It’s so strange. There are days that I feel totally awesome and then the next day it’s like WOW – I feel so tired and drained. My iron levels are low so I think that accounts for some of it. I’m trying to eat stuff these days to help out with my iron.
I did get back to the plasma clinic this past week. Can you believe I have made 28 donations now to help out others? It’s such a small gesture on my part and I really hope that it helps. My pulse rate is staying within range so that’s a plus. And this time of the year at the clinic, the lines are so short! Do you remember me telling you about having to weight 3-4 hours just to donate? These days, I’m in and out usually within an hour.
Hope your week went fabulous my friends. Remember – stick with whatever plan you are doing – we are all here to help each other out – hugs!

That’s right – I said it. Mom needs some accountability.
She’s struggling at most these days with this entire life change of eating. Personally, I think YOU my friends can help. I think mom needs to write about her struggles here on Mondays – you know after the long weekend – for some kind of accountability. You know that way she can tell you in black and white what she did for the week previous – if she lost weight – her fears and her struggles. Then YOU my friends can help her. You know with encouragement and hard love. Me and the other anipals and dad can help on the home front but I think it takes a village. So what do you think my friends. Are you willing to help out mom? Do you think she needs to do her own journal on Mondays for accountability? You tell me and I will tell her what you say. She needs all the encouragement she can get. We all do!

Sometimes you come across a sign that makes you go hhhmm, say what? This is one of those times Mommy drives by this cemetery on the way home from the worky place every day. A while back, she got stuck in traffic right in front of it. She looked over at the grounds, saw this sign and burst out into laughter.
She was able to snap this picture. So, I have to ask. “Open house” at the cemetery huh? What exactly does that entail? Do you serve ‘finger’ sandwiches? Do you serve punch? Is it like buying a condo/apartment or a house, do you get to try out the coffins and look at your surrounding resting place? Do you get to meet your future fellow neighbors?
I know… I know. Sometimes I take these things a little too far. But, you know you are probably thinking the same thing. Am I right?
P.S. Please feel free to add your thoughts on what is going on at the “Open House”.
