I am so deeply sorry for the loss of your daughters friend. It must be absolutely devestating. Words evade me now. I know that time will heal but the loss of a loved one is so hard. Yes,life is precious and each and every one of us take it for granted until our life is changed in an instant. I will keep you all in my prayers.

The loss will be so hard on your daughter... thank goodness she has those precious children to remind her that live keeps on giving. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

WOW pasta, I had missed your entry yesterday! I am so sorry to hear your bad news! I sure hope your daughter will be ok! I feel awful that I missed reading your entry yesterday. But, you are right...she will go on and she will be ok. But It is so good that you are there for her to help her out with the kids and help her get through this. Your a great mom and grandma! Congratulations on that 1/2 lb loss by the way and it's just fine if you need to take a break for a while...we all know you will be very very busy for a while with the kids there this week! You take care of yourself and don't worry about commenting for a while ok! Try to have a great day today!

It was nice to see you had an entry today - we all want to be here for support. You are right about the children, when I lost my Mum, it was the kids that kept me going and still do and her's will too. Life is so precious, we have to cease every moment.

Oh, no! I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter's boyfriend. Yes, the Lord sometimes has plans for us that are not what we expected. I'll be praying for her, and his family. So sad.

You take care.

Please know we are all sad about the situation and we are here for you, Pastagal. Let us know if there is anything we can do, like if you need to talk or anything.

Jinkster on 03/28/2001:
I'm so, so sorry for your daughter's loss. What an unfair, awful tragedy. Your family will be in my thoughts.<P>Jinkster (Petra)

Kyrin on 03/28/2001:
Hi Pasta! It seems mighty unfair... Please know that we are all thinking about you and wishing some peace for your daughter and other family members involved.

OhAnn on 03/28/2001:
I was so sorry to hear of your news. I can only imagine what she must be going through, and you too as her mother. Trust that God has a better plan.

Krispy on 03/28/2001:
I am so sorry to hear this terrible news. My thoughts are with your daughter, your family and his.

Take great care of yourselves and we are all here if you need us.

Koko on 03/28/2001:
Oh, PastaGal, my heart breaks for your daughter, you, his family, all of their hopes, dreams and love. I am so incredibly sorry to hear this news. Oh, I'm so sorry.

When you wrote to me about him this past Saturday and how your daughter asked if she'd ever find someone who loved her and her children, that gave me such hope that I too would find a wonderful man. Thank you for sharing that hope with me. And please know that you all are in my prayers and if there is anything at all that you need from me anything at all just let me know.

Surrounding you and your family and his with heartfelt prayers and sympathy!


muggg on 03/28/2001:
I don't think there is anything to describe the loss you and your daughter are facing now. How very sad. I lost a brother at age 20 and always wondered what might have been. I am so sorry for your daughter.

I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

Bunny on 03/28/2001:
My thoughts and prayers are with your daughter you and her boyfriends family. We are here for you sweetie. I do believe God works in mysterious ways even if we don't understand them. Please take care.

Soon2BThin on 03/28/2001:
I was so sorry to hear of your family's loss. I know sometimes we don't understand why things happen, but there is always a reason. You may never know that reason. I hope your family & his gets through this okay. You take care of yourself, Pasta, & come back as soon as you can.

jenny on 03/28/2001:
Oh, I'm so, so sorry! You're certainly right, it does remind us of our priorities in life...

pinkus on 03/28/2001:
My heart aches for your saughter and yor family. What an awful unfair event. Come back when you are ready. We will miss you but I will pray for you and your family every day. Pink

I just recently bought a nice elbow-length, cuffed sleeves black button up sweater at JC Penneys, it's a Worthington (my favorite brand)...goes with everything. They have it in peach, too. Matter of fact, I'm wearing it today! I love their Levi jeans, too! Can I go shopping with you??? :) I know you are looking forward to your 3-day trip this weekend.

Kyrin on 03/26/2001:
Oh, wow! You certainly need and deserve those days off! Don't you dare feel guilty when you go either. Your daughter will do just fine.

It's amazing. I was tired, sluggish and just generally not in the mood to exercise this morning, but I DID IT. You guys gave me the push I needed. I worked out...got very sweaty...and <i>now</i> I feel wonderful. Sometimes we need to exercise when we least feel like it.

Have a terrific day with your littl'uns.

carrie on 03/26/2001:
Yah, what are grandma's for! It is hard to talk ourselves into exercise. I dreaded going this morning cuz I had sooooooooo much to do! But...now that I am all done, I am so happy and the endorphins have kicked in! Now I gotta get to cleaning this trashed house I've created! Have fun with the baby and where are ya going for 3 days? Your name always make me think of "NOODLES"! YUM!

breakaway on 03/26/2001:
Pasta...if anyone has an excuse NOT to exercise, It would have to be you! You are always So busy with kids and your mom inlaw! I bet you get plenty of exercise watching them and doing the things you have to do for them! I bet you get more then you think! Do what you can and you need some time for yourself each day to just be lazy! Take 1/2 hour and just laze around in the chair or sleep! Have a terrific day and glad to see your getting nice weather! Send some my way ok! lol It's only about 15-20 degrees here brrr~

sparkymel on 03/26/2001:
Enjoy your vacation!! You deserve it! You are such a great support to your family, it sounds like and you definately need to enjoy your time off. Keep up the good work with your diet too.

sparkymel on 03/26/2001:
Thank you so much for the concern. I just love my new friends here!!! The supplements I take are called "A Perfect You" and you can only get them from distributors. I actually started selling them because I have so many family and friends that take them and love it too. You can't get them in stores, but they are just wonderful. It has been a real blessing for me because not only have I lost weight, but my blood pressure was 144/96 and after 2 weeks it has stayed normal. If you would like me to mail you some information on it and a sample you can email me at sparkymel1@hotmail.com. I'd be happy to send it to you. Have a great day!!

muggg on 03/26/2001:
Hello, Pasta Gal, You are sounding much better! Hope you have a great time on your 3 day break!

Why is it so hard to get started exercising? I know it makes me feel better when I do it! It's supposed to warm up here and then I'll be in great spirits and everything will be SO much easier!

Have a great day! By the way, that 135 looks great on you!

ABrown6794 on 03/26/2001:
Well, I do hope you enjoy your 3 days away. Exercise seems like such a chore sometimes, have you tried doing things that don't feel like exercise? Like taking Zach for a stroller ride, you may not be able to walk as quickly as you might want but it might be a good way to get started. Your menu sounds really good, except the bologna, I've never been a fan of that cold cut. Have a great day. Angie

halley on 03/26/2001:
I found the time to work out early in the morning - 5:30. That way everyone else is asleep. It's a little hard to get out of bed - but I feel just great all day long! (Of course I do go to bed early - so it may not work for everyone!)

SoccerMom on 03/26/2001:
Wow! You're down to 135! I must've missed a day or two. Congrats!!

pushedtothewall on 03/26/2001:
Well, I know exactly what a tremendous job you are doing, I'll bet because at one time my life was exactly what yours sounds like now. I think so much of you and want to encourage you to take good care of YOURSELF too! How wonderful to know that you are soon to be able to get a little break. Try not to worry about all your usual responsibilites left back home. Your biggest job will be to try to come back stronger and refreshed, okay? AND, a great big thank you for reminding me to think "lifestyle" rather than the old speak (diet). Connie

pinkus on 03/26/2001:
Hey maybe you are not exercising at the gym but those kids must keep you running. How about a nice walk just for you and don't feel guilty about leaving you deserve some time off. Pink

Krispy on 03/26/2001:
You are so lucky having such nice weather, just wish ours would huury up, although it won't get as hot as yours!!!

With everthing you do everyday you don't sound like you would have much time to fit exercising in as well!!

Take care and have a great day!!

Take care and enjoy the Oscars and the popcorn.

ABrown6794 on 03/25/2001:
You're at the final 10, I just checked your bio. That has to feel good knowing that this year's swimsuit season will be one that you can enjoy without covering up, and the feeling of having set a goal and achieving it. What a great year this will be for you. My kids and (way in the future) grandkids are a big reason for me losing weight. Have a great Sunday Angie

bobik on 03/25/2001:
Your food sounds very yummy. I was just wondering, does diet pepsi have any points? It doesn't see to be. How come???

You know what they say, Pasta, better late than never. Sorry you had such a rough night. Hope you enjoy your dinner out.

ABrown6794 on 03/23/2001:
Hey Pasta, I thought that I was the only one who tried to keep going 24/7! Hope you have a nice evening with dinner and everything.

Krispy on 03/23/2001:
Sorry to hear that your grandaughter wasn't very well. It's always especially hard in the middle of the night!!!! Hope both you and her are a lot better now.

Don't blame you for not wanting to cook tonight, hope you went somewhere nice. Take care and have a good weekend!

Get some rest - it helps your body burn fat!

dvdmon on 03/23/2001:
Hey there,

Sorry you're still not feeling great. About the asparagus, basically what I do is melt some butter, stir in some seasonings - so far just salt and garlic - and then just throw the asparagues in, getting it thoroughly soaked in this mixture. Then I throw it on the grill for 7 or 8 minutes, and voila! Let me know how yours comes out!

Pushedtothewall on 03/22/2001:
Thank you for your kind and encouraging note! I just think that your "One day and a time & consistancy" is such an excellent byword! It sounds as if you are the busiest woman in the world. You have my respect and full support for all that you are doing. Lived in San Jose to Santa Cruz area for twenty years, part of which were in the seventies and I went through that energy crisis. It is a challenge and THEN some! I am curious about the "pts" notations that you put after your food selections. What does this mean? Take care of the caregiver today!

Kyrin on 03/22/2001:
I have a lot of respect for people who care for others that way that you do. My grandmother was at home until about a year ago. It got to be physically impossible for my parents to care for her at home any longer. So, while they were reluctant and felt terribly guilty for doing so, they placed Gran first into an assisted living facility and then into a nursing home. It was the best decision for everyone.

I've never asked, but some of the things that you have to do for your mother-in-law lead me to believe that she is bed ridden. Is she?...and how much longer will you be able to care for her at home? ...or are there no other options available?

{{extra special hugs for you today}} ...like someone else said.. "Take care of the caregiver."

SoccerMom on 03/22/2001:
Sorry to hear that your mother-in-law is heading downhill. Maybe it's time to move her into a nursing home? You can still visit her and do things for her, but you will get some (much-needed) relief. My folks finally moved my Gran to a nursing home last year...and it has turned out to be the best thing they ever did. They still see her several times a week, but now they are able to enjoy their retirement, and spend time together again. Before, someone always had to be home with Gran, so mom and dad had to go out separately. This is much better for all of them, and Gran is getting more stimulation at the home, too.

Have a wonderful day!

ABrown6794 on 03/22/2001:
Pasta, when I'm home I eat different than that, but during my work week, I only eat enough during my lunch and breaks to keep me from hitting the little machines in the hall. I work graveyard and I just find it difficult to eat meals in the middle of the night. So during the work schedule my heavy meals are breakfast and lunch which are eaten in the early afternoon. Take care hope your back to 100% real soon.

breakaway on 03/23/2001:
Sounds like a tough time for you comming up! Boy do you need a vacation. I would gladly give up mine and give it to you! You need it more then I do! Even though your going through all these problems your still doing great diet wise! Good for you! Take care ok!!! Have a wonderful day!

Krispy on 03/23/2001:
I really admire what you have been doing, it cannot be easy. Maybe it has come time to give yourself a bit of a break. I know, easier said than done!! Just take care of yourself and I do hope you will be fully recovered soon.

Take care and have a great day!

Congrats on the two pounds...only five more? Hooray!

You will be staying with us when you reach goal, won't you? I can't imagine this place without either you or Maria!

Krispy on 03/21/2001:
<font color=red> CONGRATULATIONS on losing another 2lbs, only 5lbs to go!!!! Means I've got some catching up to do!!!!

Glad to hear you are now feeling better, I heard about the blackouts you are having on the news - right over here in England. Wish I could swap some of the weather, would you like some snow?

Stick with it and we will soon be celebrating with you, take care and have a great day!

Koko on 03/21/2001:
OH MY...did you say the "L" word....a LOSS?!?!!!! That is fantabulous. Good going and you are cruising to goal weight now.

So glad to hear you're feeling better and hungry. You're on the road to a full recovery. You know I understand the implications of the blackouts re: the energy supply, etc.; however, a positive note is that it's just like having a daily break for down time. What is that called in some cultures, a hiatus?? I'll have to pull out my dictionary. Glad you enjoyed it by going to sleep. And keep up the good work 'cause you're an inspiration.


bobik on 03/21/2001:
Yes!!!! You are amazing. You are gonna feel so great at your high school reunion!!!!

Hope you feel better soon and I look forward to your weigh in tomorrow!!!

SoccerMom on 03/20/2001:
You could have picked up a strep germ almost anywhere...especially around kids so much. Strep can move into your joints, heart, and other areas of your body, though, so please be sure to take all of your antibiotic, and take it on time. Is there any way you could <i>not</i> watch the kids for a few days? You really <b>need</b> to get some rest to let your body heal.

Take care of yourself! ((HUGS))

Soon2BThin on 03/20/2001:
Pasta, I'm sending you some of my energy & good health so I hope it works & you feel better soon. I have just been so lucky with my health this season, I've heard about so many people who have had such bad stuff. My earache is gone again today & I feel great. Went to a new WW meeting & enjoyed it. You take care of yourself & get well soon.

Jonai on 03/20/2001:
Hope you feel better soon!

breakaway on 03/20/2001:
AWWW pasta! I feel bad that your sick! You take care of yourself and Get yourself well! You don't deserve to be sick you have too much to do during the day! You seem to be getting in enough food though...that's good. I know it must be really hard to eat! Take care and I will pray that you get well real soon! Have a great day if that's possible!

halley on 03/20/2001:
I'm glad you are feeling at least a little bit better. It's so hard to focus when you are in pain! Hope you feel better!

Tabby on 03/20/2001:
I hope you feel better real soon!!! I have alot of trouble with my tonsils swelling up so I know what your going through. Be sure and get plenty of rest so when you do start feeling better you will be ready to get back to your routine. I love potatoe soup!!!! I would have a real hard time just having 1 cup of the soup. I just want to eat and eat. My husband always makes us potatoe soup and we all love it. Feel better soon. Tabby

maria7 on 03/20/2001:
Pasta, that is awful about your sore throat...I hope you are better soon...just take your medicine and eat soup and try to get some cold drinks going...I know that cold drinks usually help me a lot when I have a bad sore throat...I hope you feel better in the morning...I was out in the rain a lot today and hope I don't get the sore throat again. I had to take my Mother to 2 doctors in 2 towns. Pouring rain. Well, you take care and get some rest and take care of you. Maria :)

pinkus on 03/21/2001:
I love soup too, and pasta by the way....the soup is easy, I made it up after having Italian Wedding Soup somewher. Start with 2 large cans of nonfat chicken broth, add fresh sliced fresh garlic to taste(I like alot) then add about 1-2 cups chopped fresh spinach (or I have used a frozen package) then a couopleof italian tomatoes cut small (can also use canned) and simmer. About 15 minutes before serving bring to a boil and add little pearl pasta and cook til tender.Serve with a sprinking of parmesan. Salt and pepper to taste. I do hope you are continuing to feel better. Keep up the good work
