TGIF! Weekend Plans and "stuff"

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?

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.

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.

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 .

BUNNY...Oh..My..Gawd!!! What a mess!!! I can understand you losing it and blowing up!! Geez, you're going through so much crap all the time, you didn't need this thing with your dh on top of it all!! I really feel for you!!

About the weightloss...if you're that thin now, I can understand people's concerns about it, but they could be nicer about it too!! Take good care of yourself, stay strong, and you know the saying..."Hang in there!!"

I was called every name in the book....his other sister (that I was driving home too) talked to him..his nephew talked to him.....THE I went temporarily..out of my mind...screaming....name calling slamming....NOT a pretty sight..& NO..I was NOT drinking ! I was gonna call a cab...& let the stubborn ole coot drive himself ! BIL's brother was there too...he is a cop & told Mike , there is a road block at the end of the street.....& there was !!!

OH Bunny I feel for you. I had one of those dumb nights last night,,, woke up around 3 and my head flooded wiith everthing but the kitchen sink,,, so much to think over when you're sleeping..... FOR PITY'S SAKE,,,,,, LOL (yes a mother thing)

Enjoy the Italian food day and glad there are no kids, many times just being able to have an adult conversation with no kids around it restful. Enjoy the butterscotch bars,, I can just see you eating the whole batch and ending up on a "sugar high"...
