Yesterday was my youngest Granddaughter's 6th birthday party. She wanted it to have it at Chuck E Cheese and she had a wonderful time. I was somewhat disappointed in our family (both sides). Katrina has scattered our family further apart than we used to be. Still, I expect those family members, especially the ones with children to attend these birthday events. I am a Grandmother, but I have always gone out of my way to attend the birthday parties, showers & weddings of members of my family. If I have not been able to attend, my husband or daughter would attend in my place. Only two family members made it to the party out of approximately 15. We gave 3 phone number, email address and my facebook to RSVP and not one of bothered to do so. I was sad for my granddaughter, she is a sweet child. We have always been proud of our tight knit family but now I wonder if this will also be a casualty of Katrina. A couple of her good friends came from school and she had a great time playing with them so she hardly noticed the others did not attend. That is what was important in the end.
I didn't walk yesterday and while I did not make perfect choices yesterday, I did OK considering I was at a birthday party. I had no breakfast, a small amount of salad @ the party, a slice of pizza and couple bites of ice cream w/cake. I had nothing for supper, I was honestly not hungry. I was busy co hosting the party with my daughter and was on my feet moving constantly so I feel good about getting my exercise in. I was exhausted when we returned home.
This morning we are meeting for a financial planner, who knew retiring would require so much work! lol
