I Now Have a Date

August 11, 2017

I worked the food truck on Wednesday, then ran a gazillion errands, then cleaned out the fridge and stocked it with the things that I had collected while running my gazillion errands, then made dinner. While cooking dinner, Kate and Shelby and the kids arrived back at our house after being gone over the weekend. We had dinner and then I don’t know what happened, but all of a sudden it was 10:00 p.m. I still hadn’t showered from working at the food truck and I smelled like a cheeseburger. A dirty smelly, old cheeseburger.

I didn’t track or count, but I did eat good food!

The doctors office called and my surgery is scheduled for August 31st. Finally!

Here are Wednesday’s eats…


The remaining half of my RXBar from Wednesday.



Bunless Burger while working at the food truck.



Roasted Crinkle Cut Butternut Squash (Pre-cut from Trader Joe’s) with Turkey Taco Meat, Smashed Avocado, Tomatoes, Roasted Plantains and Lettuce.

2017 Goals

    Thank you Wilma. I do have faith that all will be just fine. I so appreciate your prayers and thank you for sharing that you too went through this surgery.

    Hope all is well.



  3. I am lifting you up to Jesus. Please rest in the palm of his hand. When I went through this surgery and went through the surgery doors, I knew my husband couldn’t go with me but I knew God would always be with me. That made it alright either way. Lots of love while you are waiting.

  4. Wishing you the best….. enjoy your blog, I am a fellow WW member, working toward that lifetime goal. Will pray that your surgery and recovery goes well.

    You have a wonderful weekend too Barbara!

    I love hamburgers without buns…not all that bread to feel you up!

    Have a wonderful weekend!
