I am going to have to make sure that I eat properly. I can tend to graze a lot if I am home alone. If I do some planning, knowing that Jim will need meals to take to work for his supper, that will be a bit more of an incentive. I just cooked a spaghetti squash and am waiting for it to cool a bit before I shred it. I will brown some ground beef and mix it all together with some salsa. He likes that and it will be enough for a few days.
I've been doing some stress eating recently and need to get it in check. We did get the treadmill moved out of the corner of the basement yesterday, and the home gym and stationary bicycle. I really have no excuses!
Tomorrow will be a hectic day. I am anxious, as Josh has his appointment with the Ear Nose Throat surgeon/oncologist in Hamilton. We are all scared, but it will be good to have some information about what will happen and what to expect as far as surgery/treatments.
While I was doing the dishes and thinking about going to Hamilton tomorrow, I thought about another change in my life. I guess there comes a time when a mother becomes the second-most important woman in a man's life. I wondered if Josh really wants me to go in with him to see the doctor. His girlfriend Sharon will be going as well. I am so glad that she came into his life. She is a sweet girl and they are very good together. And although he will always be my child, she is becoming the one he will turn to for comfort, and rightly so. Jim and I are still a part of his support in any way that we can be, as well as his many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Josh assured me that it is ok. If all three of us are there, more information will be absorbed. Sharon is a RPN and has a list of questions and I think we will record the conversation so we can play it back later.
Yesterday was Family Day in Ontario, and we went down to Crystal Beach to see the ice caves. This is a phenomenon that has happened because of the cold winter. The traffic was crazy on the main road into Crystal Beach, so Jim took a side street over to another route in and we found a parking spot on a street a few blocks from the beach. It was beautiful, but cold.

Josh, Sharon and Maggie. She didn't like it in the hole!

The beach. There were probably almost as many people as a nice day in the summer!
I have seen a few jobs on the Job Bank that look kind of interesting. It would mean having to get another car, but I guess we will cross that bridge when we get to it. I've got enough on my mind right now!
