I'm probably rushing the season with this autumn graphic,, but just got back from the grocery store and I bought a box of gourds.   All colors and weird shapes, very cute.     Now I'm just waiting for the gardener to come. 

I really don't have any plans for the weekend (even the groceries are bought).... yesterday dh and I went for a stroll in the city (practicing my crowd handling skills),,,, it went OK, not great but OK this time,, but was exhausted when we got home.  We stopped in the Ocui restaurant and had salad and a pizza bread for dinner, it was nice.  Weather is gorgeous today and will be until Monday....

So what are you all up to this weekend?

OMG Bunny, that is truly not a good thing for you.   (())  Sorry to hear it all, thinking the whole family is really VERY stressed out.  Do you have any relatives you could just up and go visit for a few days or a week,,, just to get "back to yourself? and sleep a bit and do nothing????"  Let  the girls, grands and your dh and ds fend for themselves.  I know you think it's impossible but perhaps if you just do it, and not worry whether they are all getting to work and school and eating then they will begin to see what's really going on and how much you are doing for them all.  It's not easy to go away, but I think it's getting to the point where they need to respect you and what you do, and with that, I'll SHUT UP!    Just worrying about you .

Oh, Bunny, you don't need your dh to add to the stress you're already having! I'd have blown up, too. I'm glad he finally let you drive.

Those people could have been more tactful about your weight loss! Something along the lines of "You look great, but be careful you don't get too thin!"  would have been better.  They're probably just jealous! Pay them no heed. I'm sure you won't let yourself get too thin and once all this stress is over (and it WILL be!) you'll feel better and will be able to get back to more normal eating habits.

Good advice, Suzan! Really, Bunny, you need to take care of yourself and if it takes getting away from all the chaos, then do it! Even a couple of days could help. And now I'll shut up, too.
