Yesterday I went into town to the post office (again!) to mail some letters, then to Safeway for groceries, and last stop at the gas station for gas for my lawnmower. Home and unload the car. Then I snacked as I put groceries away and had a glass of wine. What a surprise, I was not hungry for dinner~! Dang! Tonight will be different.
Last night I had a great conversation with high school BFF and my MOH for my wedding to Jerry, Sandy (Todoran) Beck. Good talking to you girlfriend! xoxoox
I was chatting with Kristen and said to her that 42 years ago she was the Flower Girl in my wedding. She said, "And mom, 50 years ago you were pregnant!" OMGOSH! I said the same thing to Brian about being the Ring Bearer in the wedding 42 years ago, and he said,"Mom, I'm not that old!" (LOL!!!)
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.
