December? How did that happen?

It feels like just last week it was August………….

So much has happened this year, that looking back on it I am bumfuzzled as to how we managed to get through it all.

First the good stuff……..

We paid off our home.

my yellow house

I finally paid off one of my old hospital bills from 2005’s heart attack.

Our son got a really (really) good job with benefits.

George has a job he adores.

I figured out HOW TO USE MY SMART PHONE!!!!!

We bought George a shed for his modeling crap…umm, stuff………models and paints.

George’s shed

I finished upholstering a settee, and the house got painted…and electrical and plumbing fixed and upgraded…and the sewer lines replaced.

Everything was looking pretty good.

Then the bad stuff………

George had open heart surgery.

I suppose that also classifies as “good stuff” since he is now home and recovering………….but the stress on both of us feels like we aged a good twenty-five years overnight.

I have to learn how to cook differently…………that is bad. I HATE having to change recipes….I hate experimenting trying to make a fat free lasagna taste good. 

I know I have to cut fats and carbs from his diet…but the man is German first and American second when it comes to food. He lives off of fat and carbs……….


The next year should be very interesting.

  1. Ahhh, the healthy heart diets. After my heart attack, I muddled through life totally unsatisfied with the supposedly healthy food promoted by my doctor until I found a nutritionist who debunked many of the myths. That was 15 years ago and I am still breathing and pumping blood…..I think. 😁Beware of the fat-free fanatics. Some fats are good while others are truly unhealthy for everyone. ❤ I’m very happy to hear things are going well with you and George.

    1. yea..fats are good for ya..just not the kind George wants to eat. lol The big deal is actually salt. He eats way too much of it, and that throws off the rest of a person’s blood chemistry. Finding flavors to take the place of iodized salt is the pain in my patootie………..

      1. I know. And as my taste buds deteriorate, I reach for the salt shaker too often. Thanks for the reminder.

  2. It also depends on how one prepares the meals as well as eating healthy… glad that George is back home and you and your family can have a wonderful and happy holiday.. 🙂

      1. I believe we are trying to but somehow old age had a way of slowing one down a bit… 🙂 I learned about healthy cooking while helping my late wife deal with cancer, one does not necessarily have to sacrifice a great deal, just be smart, but always consult with the doctor… have a great weekend… 🙂
