CC, how could it be that you lost 40 pounds and didn't know it? Do you not go down in size of clothes? I, with my paultry 10 pound loss, am floating in my sweats.

Went to Dr. today. Am a bit dehydrated AGAIN. He said I should be drinking 1/2 gallon of water A DAY, at least. I would totally float away. I can drink about maybe 4 cups of liquid throughout the day. Geez.

Had a call from BIL (no D there) inviting us to their lake house for Thanksgiving. Said he was sure they could find something to blend for my meal. We accepted. Will see how it goes. They are the two most phony people on earth. We are just an inch above pond scum in their estimation so they have got to be up to something. Mom told Jim to be careful as BIL would try to get absolutely every dime she had, even though he is a millionaire. And, it turned out, the main reason for this phone call was to demand Jim pay him the $200. out of Mom' estate for taxes he had paid on her home. Shortly after his call, the estate attorney called and said he has still not gotten the paperwork back from BIL,  that he needs in order to close the estate!!! So, I told the atty. to call BIL himself. That should have been a rude awakening.

I really have to get to work on a quilt I started a year ago. This is for a baby (Jim's DN BIL's baby), who was born with major heart problems and was sent by helicopter within the hour of his birth to Childrens Hospital and had surgery 3 hours after birth. I followed him on facebook all year. Decided I must make him a quilt. Was moving right along until I re-thought the color combo and stopped. I have to go cut the new fabic and frog ALL of what I had done. So, will be frantically working on that right up until Thanksgiving day. The baby and his parents will be a said lake house. This is the reason I accepted this invite.

Got one more quilt completely done and a little hand sewing on grandson #3s quilt. Hubby came and got me and we went to town for lunch with our son and grandson - we had a great unexpected visit, they were looking at farm equipment.

Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love

Oh I know I've been loosing, I just didn't know how much. Ya gotta remember that 7lbs 9oz of that  was lost spontaniously . Well  actually more when you consider the water weight. Having a baby is kind of the ultimate extreme diet. LOL

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.

Sukochi,

BIL should submit his claim for $200 with documentation to the attorney for the estate.

Some days you just should not attempt to sew. I spent more time un-sewing then I did sewing. It took 3 hours to make 4 blocks.  *sigh*
