Congrats balon! Happy birthday Av!

I feel a tad burnt out - I think I need a holiday before I break someone or something Very Happy (which I guess is why I'm here on KW instead of working - speaking of which, I should do some I suppose...)

Burnt out is no fun ... maybe less work, more fun is what you need right now. Go for a walk, sleep, eat, have a chillaxing bath, get a massage .. anything that works for you.

Or when you do finally get a holiday... your body will say .. finally this fkcr has stopped, time to let that flu virus reek havoc ... and keep him down.

I find I'm missing having a small, warm, furry body to snuggle. I get some relief when reading the kittehs thread. Even though I haven't had a dog in a long time, perhaps I'll find the same comfort reading about Watchers pups.

So...

How 'bout them puppers?

I talked to a friend yesterday, we chatted about stuff... an amazing man with incredible stories about saving children from street life and even murder... this morning, he died. Completely unexpected. He was 45.

I'm also friends with his wife. She was my assistant when I taught Kindergarten. We attended their wedding ten years ago next week. They have 3 children.

I am still in shock about it. And of course, he was one of the best, most kind, compassionate, patient, godly people on the planet. Too good for this world, I guess.

The number of children, mainly street boys, whose lives he touched. Some people think about rescuing orphans, others take part in it, for Joseph it was his life and breath. And the Spirit guided him into some crazy situations so he could literally save lives. In one case, he arrived just as a machete went up in the air and was able to stop them from killing a little boy who was accused of witchcraft. He cared for one boy who had had a tire put round his neck and lit on fire. He needed more than a dozen surgeries in order to be able to eat and speak normally. The last I heard of this kid, he had grown up and was now a "vulcanizer" (had a business repairing and mounting tires), and lived in his own rented flat. (The scarring is such that his shoulders and neck flow into his head, like a tree trunk.) Joseph was PROUD of these kids every time they overcame obstacles. He spoke of them with the same enthusiasm as he did his own 3 children, of whom he was also a serious fan.

You just don't know how many seconds you have here, and then you're gone.

TL;DR: Lost a friend today unexpectedly.

Its inconceivable how such amazing human lives are cut prematurely short.

A tragedy indeed.

I feel the planet needs more of his kind of goodness and selflessness.

Cherish your memories .. and his legacy of example ♥️ and compassion ♥️

Sad news Deer. Sad

Anyway, I'm back. No, didn't do anything special, tried to avoid leaving the house entirely in fact and mostly managed. Very Happy

Of course, the down-side of taking time off work is catching up again when you get back...

Oh. My. Stars.

Several years ago, I visited my sister when I was at the lowest weight I achieved doing Atkins. She gave me a couple of size 14 outfits which didn't fit me, but Sue-Ellen was confident I would get there eventually.

I stopped doing Atkins, and the weight crept back up.

I'm now below that lowest weight I attained on Atkins, but I haven't really noticed my size 16s getting baggy on me. Even so, I decided to try on one of the sets.

It fits! Huzzah!

Now, I blatantly admit that the tummy tuck I had for my reconstructive FLAP surgery didn't hurt me fitting in to them. But, I'm excited anyway!

70 more pounds to go for my ultimate goal, but if I achieve another 60 pound loss, I'll be ecstatic.

Was picturing Hashi's avatar saying that, which was a tad disturbing, but seriously, that's awesome, Menolly.

A mix of health and pleasure, after the year I've had. Mostly for rejuvenation.

Tonight we're going to The Grand Ole Oprey. Charlie Daniels is the headliner. I don't think I know any of the other performers, and I'm not actually a fan of country music. But, it will be interesting to watch a live radio show, if they're broadcasting tonight.
