Grandparent's Say It Saturday

Good morning everyone. Thanks for coming by today. I hope you enjoy all the linkers here and be sure stop back in a few days to see the new ones who join up too. I have had some questions about my trip last week end but I am sorry to tell you I didn’t get to go. I started feeling sick on Friday but I was determined I was going. I packed and left but didn’t make it out of town. I had to stop and be sick at a carwash just 15 minutes after leaving home.  I didn’t want to ruin the trip for everyone so I called my husband to come and pick me up. I spent most of the day Saturday in bed and sleeping.  By Sunday night I started feeling better but I keep reacting to food after I eat. This is not a virus; I have full blown allergic reactions to most foods now. So this last week has been a trial; there are still my grandkids who need childcare and work that has to be done. I have only done what is necessary from day to day.  I have been to the doctor and have more scheduled appointments trying to figure how to help me; no answers yet.
So my friends, I tell you all this to let you know how it’s going around here. I am sure all will be right with me again and the good news is that I should expect to lose some of this extra weight I still have. I have promised myself a new wardrobe one day when I am at a smaller size and perhaps I’ll get to have that shopping trip soon J I am so grateful for all of you stopping by to read my blog and being here today to read all my linkers' post. I appreciate each of you and love that we are getting to share in each other’s lives in a way that would not have been possible in the not so distant past.  Ok, enough of all that let’s get to linking! Can’t wait to read your post!
* This week I linked a post that most of you have already read but I have asked a new question with it. Would you please read (and hopefully answer) that question? I find family interactions interesting and how those interactions are passed down to future generations.

  1. So sorry to hear that you are having such a bad time :( Awful enough to be sick let alone to have the problem with food reaction keep lingering...

  2. Oh Connie, I sure wish you were feeling better and you know I'm keeping good thoughts. I came down with a bad throat infection on Tuesday so I am way behind in reading and posting and trying to get caught up. Please feel better soon!

  3. Brand new follower! Hope you're feeling better!

  4. Dear Connie, So sorry to hear that you have been unwell. Do hope you are feeling much better. Sending you hugs from far across the seas.

  5. Thank you for hosting, Connie, despite feeling so cruddy. I hope you're doing better now.

    I apologize for arriving late to the party. Reason being a long and uninteresting story.

    Take care!

  6. Hi all, I'm doing better now. Mostly eating only brown rice so I'm not reacting. I think I'm starting to get my brains back so I can write again!


Thank you SO much for taking the time to leave a comment!
