It's all about me.

We had a lot of fun visiting with my family on Easter. We gathered about 16 of us around the table. My sister and I both brought shrimp appetizers - hadn't thought to talk it through and go figure - my brothers wife, our dear hostess, doesn't even like shrimp so she didn't enjoy any of that. I also brought a homemade berry pie and of course then my sisters father-in-law says that's the only thing he CAN'T eat. he was so disappointed. oh well, I loved it. it's a shame he didn't think to bring something he might like in case he doesn't like anything that's there. I do. Gotta think about yourself. it sounds selfish but it's not. That keeps a positive spin on my outlook. you don't get disappointed if you at least can please yourself! Then Gar and I went for a (hopefully) last winter walk through the snow filled park. We walked 5 miles! yes. My goal is to be buff by beach week - mid July. Beach week is always a great motivator for me - cruises too. No photo's today cause I'm a bit busy tonight. Lots to do !!
