Eating Cupcakes

A good friend (Debbie N.) made me cupcakes and brought them for me today. My birthday is on Monday. I will be 42. sigh... yeah, I am getting old.
On another front, my dang iPhone won't charge. I am getting a bit upset with it. It won't go past 10% battery. Does anyone know what that means? Is it dying???
Next week my oldest goes back to college. She is taking classes on three evenings and Saturday. I will be watching the Robby boy while she is at school. We might have to call in reinforcements to help her study. She is taking 2 tough science courses.
Holly is living at home and has college on Mondays and Wednesdays. She isn't sure what her major will be. She changed to English but I tried to explain that English majors have a hard time getting a job. It might be going back to science. We will see. She has also decided on a Vegatarian lifestyle. Considering most in our family considers themselves carnivores, this may be difficult. I made potato soup and we had to add bacon pieces. Or mac & cheese isn't good without the hot dogs (according to my family!)
Thanks to all for the comments on my sad note. I feel very cheered up now! I just get blue once in awhile. Too much input and I get overloaded. I am going to need lots of prayers this spring. Things are happening that I really can't comment in a public forum about and we will need prayers of support and love. Especially in the beginning of March. And that is all I will say on that subject...
My puppy Daisy is losing more hair. She is just pulling it out. I will be taking her to the vet on the 22nd for another evaluation. My children swear she is crazy and needs prozac.
I have decided that I am going to test for my English as Second Language certificate. I am going to the study session on 2/5 to see how hard the test will be for me. I don't think that it will be too bad because the requirements for ESL ard so high. I have taken several classes for the subject.
My word for 2011 is wisdom. I am working on not saying things I shouldn't. I have been very quiet on my daughter's food lifestyle and I haven't said anything mean about it. I just tell her that I don't understand it. I believe that God made certain animals for us to eat and growing up in KY on a farm gave me plenty of time to stare cows and pigs in the face. I am trying to keep quiet when my children choose things that I don't understand. Because they are going to choose a lot of things that I just don't understand in their lives.
I have lost 4lbs from my pre-Christmas weight. I know that I gained a ton of weight during Christmas. I didn't even bother to see how much more that I gained. I was 158 at the beginning of December and now I am 154. My goal is 135. Looking at me, no one believes that I weigh that much. But I am tall and the weight doesn't show as much. I really appreciate it when everyone tells me that I don't look that heavy.
Have a great 3 day weekend! MLK Day on Monday. San Antonio has the largest MLK march in the country.
