Doctor, Doctor

I am sitting outside right now, enjoying one of the most beautiful days in the history of the universe.  I’d guess that it is about 72 degrees.  It is sunny and their is a slight breeze.  The pear treas in our front yard are blooming, and the azaleas are just coming out of bud.  The grass is beginning to turn green, and my little boy is riding around our backyard on his John Deere tractor.  He is at home with me today, because his daycare provider had to go to the dentist.  I took my son to the doctor today a check up.  He is three now, and the doctor says that he is in great shape and smart as a whip.  My son wears glasses to correct a problem with his left eye.  Hopefully the glasses will “fix” the eye problem and he can avoid surgery when he gets older.  So, it’s just me and my son, hanging out together, eating Popsicles on the back porch, chasing butterflies, and learning how to throw a baseball.  There’s living, and then there’s LIVING.  Today, baby, I’m ALIVE!

(My weight loss has slowed to a crawl, but I am still eating nutritiouss foods.  I did eat fast food last night, but I’m back on “program” today.  I’m about to fix grilled chicken and brown rice for lunch.)
