No...make that...eating as fast as I can!!
This morning, after a very hard day yesterday, I was off to my last least for now. Medication is gone and I can now eat again..but no appetite. Of course silly me tried to start off with a big hamburger and a hot mocha coffee AND a cinnimon roll. I got the hamburger down..barely..two sips of the coffee and two bites of the roll and I felt horrible! LOL Wouldn't you know I would attempt to stuff myself the first chance I is now back to the milk toast and cream of wheat and building up to normal.
NOW I am having "eaters regrets!" :)
If you consider the fact that I had SEVEN children because I loved babies and everything I do, almost, is done a wee to excess. A wee? :)
So..back to bland (yuk) meals.

Now...when I came on and read my sweet comments..I saw that Bella Vista is having a most wonderful giveaway! You must hop over and see the lovely things she is giving away!
Delightful things! She has a most beautiful and interesting blog if you have not found her yet!

NOT only is Barb at BELLA VISTA have a wonderful GIVEAWAY but she is also having a most wonderful Rooster Party! We get to show off our ROOSTERS! I cannot wait!!

Have a wonderful Thursday and rest of the week. I am off to try and catch up on my sweet fellow bloggers! How I have missed you all!

~Smiles and love~


  1. Awww mona... I've been brat dieting myself the last few days. Not fun when you want chicken salad.


    Feel better and blessings to you.

  2. I ams so excited to hear the good news!!! Silly girl trying to eat to much too soon...sounds like something I would do!!!

    I am also glad that you are going to be attending Barb's party!!! Me too!!! See ya there!!!


  3. Mona, I'm glad you are getting a little better. I'd say that craving a hamburger is a very good sign. Maybe just a couple of bites next time. :)

  4. Glad you can eat again, so just take it a little slow. Maybe tons of ice cream and pie. lol Just kidding. Glad things are better. I am all set for the Rooster party, it sounds like such fun. I have the button on my sidebar. Hugs, Marty

  5. Awe....I know when you are not able to eat the things you love it is so tempting to eat them all when the light is green...

    Baby steps....:-)

  6. Oh, poor Dear Mona! I'm so sorry you felt bad after trying to eat! I know you're just so hungry for good tasting food! But take care of yourself and I know you'll be back to your little tastey self really soon!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  7. I'm sure you will get your appetite back in time. Take it easy and take care. I'm sure glad I found you, here in blogland. =)

  8. I'm sure we've all done that at one time or another. At least things are looking up. So glad all the tests are done. I'm excited about the rooster party too!

  9. We've all missed you TOO! Baby bites my dear.. baby bites.

  10. Glad you're feeling better. Hopefully you'll be eating whatever you want really, really soon. Thinking of you!!

  11. Mona, I am so sorry I haven't visited lately. Did not know what you had been going through. Glad you are feeling better. As the other Penny said " Baby steps". Be well.

  12. Glad your starting to come around Mona, God Bless, xoxo~Kathy~ @ Sweet Up-North Mornings...

  13. I think I would have done the same thing, Mona. But it sounds like you have your same old vigor and vim!!

    Love Barb and am on the lookout for some roosters!!


  14. Perhaps not the best way of starting to eat after being sick so long :-) :-) Take care now and don´t eat to much :-)
    Have a great day now!

  15. Morning Mona...I left you a message on my blog... When you visit just click on Yesterdays comments, Feel strong today!!! xoxo~Kathy~ @ Sweet Up-North Mornings...

  16. I remember once after being sick and I craved bacon and eggs....let's just say it was not a good idea! Feel better!
    ~Hugs, Patti

  17. Glad to hear you are doing better. You've been missed also.

  18. Hi Mona, Just discovered your blog..I am also retired but now I take care of my granddaughter 3 days a wk. Sometimes it feels like work..but I love her to death. Hope you will be able to eat better soon..Now I am going to go back and explore your blog some more...sally

  19. Mona, girl, I just love thoughtful you are to post this and how generous you are. I have to tell you, I am so grateful for my bloggy friends! What a blessing you ALL are to me.

    Take it steps and you will be feeling much better before you know it. Many prayers are going out for you and God is surely listening.

    Hugs, good thoughts and love coming your way,

  20. Oh Mona, that's exactly what I would have done, gorged on fast food the first chance I get!

  21. Hello Mona,
    Thank you so much for the sweet
    B-day wishes and for entering my giveaway! I really appreciate it.

    I'm so sorry you are still dealing with all of this. I'm praying that you are feeling better very soon.
    You will be eating a cinnamon roll in no time my friend.

    Have a blessed day.
    ~Melissa :)

  22. Hi Mona, Thank you for stopping by my blog and for your sweet comments.
    I hope you are feeling better today. I am keeping you in my prayers for a speedy recovery. One day at a time, and you will be feeling more and more like yourself. I love to follow your blog.


  23. Aw poor thing! I would have probably done the same. I can't stand to be food restricted LOL. So glad you're better!

    All the best,

  24. Mona, dear, take it easy. Glad to see you out and about. That's gotta be a good sign.

  25. Miss Mona- you take care-I can really relate to the wee excess comment. I laughed at that because it is me!


  26. I'm so pleased you are feeling better. Just take it one day at a time, please! Heading over to visit some roosters now... Karen

  27. Hello, Sweet Mona..oh, my...yes, I would think baby steps are in order for the eating..after all you have been thru, I am sure that hamburger did it's number on you. Slow and easy will get you where you want to be, I'm sure.
    Oh, yes, I am excited about the rooster party. I can hardly wait to see all the feathers flying in Blogland. I already have my post all ready..but, I keep finding another rooster here or there and have to rework my silly post.
    So glad you are feeling better..
    love, bj

  28. So glad your on the mend.
    I have keep you in my prayers.

  29. Oh Mona! I was so thrilled to hear you are cancer free! That is awesome!! Just go slow on the eating!
    I hope someone gave you some good advice on how to "dull" your picture. I have an idea, but . . . not sure it's very useful. I posted today. Go there to hear my details.
    Must run, I'm still in my robe and we leave in 45 mins. Had to stop and say a quick hello and give you a hug.
    so BIG HUGS!!!!! Karen

  30. Hi Mona, we just got back from a 2 week vacation down your way! Oceanside being the closest to you! I am really sorry to get back on line and see that you have been having problems. I wish you well, my friend! I hope all went well and you are getting back to your "ole" sweet self again. I see that you had a post on the shade I made too - thank you and like I said; you are a very sweet and kind lady! May God bless you always!

  31. Thinking of you MonaGirl. Praying you continue to recover without any setbacks.

    Food is so darn good though, huh? I'm thinking of you... I can eat for both of us if that will help! :)


  32. Hi Mona.....just checking in. Are you taking good care of yourself? I do hope so. You remain in my prayers, dear heart.

    With real love,

  33. Dear Mona, Take care of yourself by going at things slowly. You'll start to feel better one step at a time. No more pigging out! LOL I like cream of wheat but every day would be a bit much. We will all have so much to see when the rooster party comes around, won't we?
    :-) Sue

    I need to join this party. It's going to be one big party.

    John's been laid off and is looking for work. I'm working and looking for less work. heehee!

    Same ol' thing here with me and my. Nothing new really. Good days and bad. I see my GYN on the 27th and I'm going to see if I can get my parts removed. It's becoming so difficult. We'll see.

    Hope you are doing alright. Hugs!!
