Wednesday in paradise...

So it's Wednesday and that means MahJong!  I used to always say Wednesday is Prince Spaghetti Day as you know but not so much any more for me.   But that's okay, I am starting to really believe that nothing tastes as good as thin feels.  I was looking at some old photos of me and I was really huge.  You know I'm sorry too because they are photos of me and Sarge.  He would be so happy now if he could see me.  I have my annual physical soon and I am anxious to see how much more weight Dr. Wacks wants me to lose.  And if I can get off any other medications.  But not my fish oil!  Don't take that!  Arggg...

So yesterday I lost five dollars at canasta and won one dollar at poker.  There was this guy that sat next to me and for the whole night he ate (loudly clicking against his teeth) lollypops.  Other than that it was pretty fun.

When I play cards I don't manage to get in the pool though.  Since today is MahJong and it's at my building and we finish around 3:30 I plan to go right after that.  I feel so much better when I go do.   

Do you ever think about things like what you would do with your life if you could go back in time?  I don't know why I think about this stuff, it doesn't do any good but sometimes I think about a different career, stuff like that.  I'd definitely live where I do though.  But in the end (of my thoughts) I don't really think I'd change what I did for work, I liked it and I liked the people I met and the places I got to go and the excitement of it all.  

I'd just find some way to start traveling sooner.  I know we were very lucky to travel while Sarge was in the service but I'd do more and see more and I'd like to live in Italy for a time.  I'd still come back to Florida though.  And not just any place in Florida, I like where I am.

And so my dears, thanks for reading today.  Hope you weren't bored.  Have a lovely Wednesday.  Me too...


  1. I go back in time in my thoughts all of the time. Though there are some things I'd change, my career--which is a calling to me--is not one of them.

    Have fun today.

  2. Buongiorno!!!

    Lots of thoughts and desires, it's important that you feel good on health, that you continue your pool exercises, that you trust your weight watching...
    Sarge looks at you and he is satisfied of his girl!!!

    Have a lovely Wednesday!

    Big hugs!

  3. I too wonder about the choices I made. I look back and say... what was I thinking how could I have been that wrong ... oh well like you said it doesn't do any good.
    At lest you can look back at the good times you had with Sarge. I was not as lucky with my x, just a lot of bad times.

    Have a lovely day at MahJong

    cheers, parsnip

  4. I definitely would not have gotten married at 17! I have a long list of coulda, shoulda, wouldas, but no sense dwelling on it.
    Have yourself a great Wednesday!

  5. I often think are there things I would change in my life if I could go back but then I realise that the things that have happened in my life have made me what I am, so I guess they weren't all bad. ;)

    I'm sure Sarge would be proud as punch of you Bee and you have every right to be proud of yourself too. xx

  6. I still do the what if, if only and I wonder where they are now game! Sometimes an old flame creeps into my dreams and I feel so guilty. But he was a friend and I figure its just the friendship I miss. I love my guy for sure and surer!

    I am so proud of you for the weight loss, I wish I could do it. I don't have the will, or the time or the patience to stick to it. I want instant results for little work. So lazy, so not like me in real life either! go figure.

    Hope you have a great day!

  7. I think that is an important thing to realize--as we come down to our last years--that as we look back, we wouldn't change a thing--even the yucky stuff made us the strong people we are today.

  8. Bee, I do think back in time too. I hope you have a good fun day. xoxo, Susie

  9. Sometimes I do think about career change. Not only in past but for future. I'm too old :( Hahaha!
    I would love to live in Italy. Lerici is the little town me and hubby want to retire at. We can dream, right?
    Enjoy your game and pool!
    Hugs from Ohio,

  10. I wouldn't have changed a thing! It brought me to where I am today. HUGS!

  11. I know Dr. Wacks is going to be thrilled with your progress with your weight loss. Thin feels good indeed.

    I think we all wish we could have done things differently. Sometimes they are small things, and sometimes not. I don't think it hurts one bit to think about things we'd do differently.

    Have a terrific day. Big hugs. :)

  12. sometimes the mom thinks those things, but then thinks that if she changed even the littlest thing, then she might have missed out on meeting someone or a lot of people that mean alot to her, so she would not change anything.

  13. purrrssss xoxoxoxoxoxxo - happy Wednesday - your Sammie Pie

  14. I go back and think of what I should have done all the time, too. I'm a regular Walter Mitty....

  15. Bee, I often wondered what my life would be like if I hadn't had the stroke. Because of it my entire life changed, my children changed, my friends changed, Mary Lou I know had to change and most importantly I definitely has changed. Now I'm not saying that my life was bad, no I think that many great things have occurred for the good but the stroke changed the man I was so really I will never know who Paul would or could have been. But you know my lovely friend, if hadn't had my stroke probably I wouldn't have met you, Charlie, Linda, Mike and John Heald. Maybe I would have never cruised and I would have missed the best in my world so I think the stroke gave me good things from a bad situation.
    Well I had better get away from all of this stroke past ideas. The stroke took place and my life is that's what it is.
    See you Bee.

  16. It's never boring to read what othewrs are doing!

  17. Oh yes, I do the "If I could go back in time" thinking a lot and there are definitely a lot of things that I would probably try to change but by the same token, I know that the things I did led to where I am and the people in my life now and it would be darned hard to want to change that. Now if I could still do that and not have married poorly twice I'd do it!

    I think that Sarge was proud of you no matter what you looked like so don't look back on those pictures with regret; look back on them with love and know that man would have loved you no matter you weighed because it's not the outside that counts the most, it's what's inside and that's who Sarge loved with all of his heart and soul.

  18. I don't play that game much. If I had not been married to my ex, I wouldn't have my two great kids, I most likely would not have ended up in Arkansas and met James. However, that being said, if I had the power to change one thing, it would have been to have my mom live a longer life and get to enjoy Justin and Bethany.

    Big Hugs,


  19. I need to try some of that nail polish on my toes!

    Big hugs from soggy Podunk, honey...

  20. I wish I'd done more traveling too. I had plans of going to Australia, but I never made it.
