My Progress

A lesson I've learned..

I know I should have realized this a long time ago...but, like a lot of things, it just 'hit' me a few days ago.

My husand and I had to drive 90 minutes to Boston Monday evening because our college daughter's car had almost NO brakes. My husband has always fixed the family cars and we don't know who to trust to fix her car. So we drove there and gave her my car and my husband drove the Jeep with-almost-no-brakes home...

We took advantage of the visit to take both of our daughters out to dinner. (FYI...our college daughter lives with our oldest daughter; she lives and works in the Boston area.) We decided on Uno's. I was looking at the menu, and it occurred to me that it didn't matter what I ordered, or what I ate, I was happy to be spending time with my daughters. Sometimes I don't see them for several weeks to a few months at a time....and this time, it wasn't about "THE FOOD" was about the visit.

I chose carefully, grilled shrimp, roasted veggies and rice pilaf. I ate it all, left about 1/4 of the rice, and then ate my husband's grilled veggies because he didn't want them....and I hated to see nice roasted veggies go to waste.

I always told my kids, that everything in life is a learning experience...and today it was my turn to 'learn'...
