Bridal Showers and visitations

Saturday, April 27, 2013

Wow, what a mixture of things today, my daughter, Brande, and I were busy. A friend of ours from church passed away unexpectedly (to think last Saturday I was talking to her and shaking her hand and she was as joyful as ever). She'd gone to church in Edgerton and on the way home, she was found in her car in the field (across the road from the lady she used to sit with in church). They took her to the hospital and couldn't figure out what was wrong, and found bleeding in the back of the brain. They said, at first, an aneurism, but finally decided it was a stroke, she died 2 days later. She was such a cheerful, loving lady, and will be missed.

Right after we had my neices bridal shower, much happier and got to finally get the rest of the christmas gifts to everyone; the family missed christmas because everyone was too busy. anyway, it was nice to finally meet her fiancee, and we had a great time. emoticon

Computer video acting up...but I kept going!

Friday, April 26, 2013

Wow, today I think was the longest I've done exercise..no, I take that back, but it sure seemed that way. Every 20 seconds the video was stopping for another 20 seconds, but I kept doing the exercise that was going on at the time. I finally gave up and restarted my computer and the modem and it seemed to work fine after that, plus I'd downloaded an update on Java. But I managed to do an extra 5 minutes of exercise through that..not sure if that's good or bad, because my calves hurt already. *L*

Anyway, my daughter and her bf have been packing up her stuff to move her all day today, my alarm didn't go off this morning..what a day it's been, I'm hoping it gets better, let's keep our fingers crossed.

Well I hope you have a great day, and remember to smile...I am! emoticon

Mind over matter on days that seem to be off. emoticon

Unsure

Thursday, April 25, 2013

Wow, this is the first time, I think, I've sweated this much during exercise..of course I have a sweatshirt on and long underwear top, but I've worn those before. Maybe it's because I tried the core and weight exercise standing up today for the first time, and did the walking exercise (1 mile aerobic walk) first. It's hard to tell, but you know what, it actually feels good. I think I'll try it this way every day.

My daughter's bf and her started packing up her things to move to his place last night, not sure how I feel about it because I'm so used to doing things with her, and finding out how her classes are going, and she's moving about 20 miles away. (His parents let him use a house they have which is just up the road from them, he works for his dad), so it's not like I'll be seeing her everyday, which I'll miss. But I'm fine with it, now she's responsible for everything, or I should say, they are, because she's down to 1 part time job (she had two, but with school it got too hard to handle.) I did tell them, however, that they're not moving the pregnant mare until the baby is born, because I won't get to see it otherwise. :D Not with how long my husband works, and the price of gas. I'm sure things will work out for the good because God never gives us anything more than we can handle, right?

Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful day, and enjoy the sunshine! emoticon

    I am sure she feels the same way. There is also Skype , phone and i am sure they will visit. I find my daughter and i have a better relationship now as when she lived here. This just might bring you even closer then you already are!

    20 miles isn't that far away. I am sure you will see her a lot.

Generosity

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

I went out and collected items yesterday for the Silent Auction, and everyone who was around, gave, and I mean things like a garden tool set, a hole digger, a post sprinkler, a very nice tool belt, 20 gal tank of fuel (for a grill), and that's just a few of the things. I must have gone to 15 places and got items from 13 of them, the others I'm to call because either they weren't there, or they do it from another office. That is so exciting, I can't wait for the auction to see how much we actually have.

I'm really excited because I've noticed that my shirt is looser, my jeans too, and that really is thrilling to "feel". We're expecting a pony to have a baby soon, and today she was acting ornery and looking back at her belly. Though she's not waxed yet, she sure is acting like she's having pains. My daughter would love to name him/her "CSC's Supernatural" because one of her fav shows is Supernatural and she said if it's born today/tonight, that's going to be it's name because Supernatural is on tonight. Then, she normally has named them after sportscars because she figures she'll never own one, that way she has a whole fleet, but this one is going to be different...it'll be after a character in the show, either Castiel or another, she's not thought of a female's name yet, but she will. She kind of liked Bela.

Anyway, last time she did the same thing and it was a week or two later she had Mercedes. Anyway, it's a nice day out so far, hope it stays that way. Have a great day everyone!

    What does waxed mean?
I have found most people are generous for a good cause. emoticon

Wonderful day all around!

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

What a beautiful surprise to come here and see the comments from yesterday, yes, it actually brought tears to my eyes. I always just behave as I am, but I'm so glad it inspires people, thank you so much for that, you all know how to make someone feel so good about themselves, and that's a wonderful thing.

I went to the Doctors office today and weighed in....I'd gained a pound, but like the Dr, my husband both said, it is more than likely because I'm using weights in my exercises now, so as long as I'm building up muscle, I will gain. Of course I knew that, but I'd gone expecting to have lost all this weight. Oh well, I'll keep going because I have lost inches and I'll take that any day!

I hope you all have a beautiful day, and don't forget that smile! emoticon

    Yes, inches and i was thinking that as i was reading your blog. Inches are a big thing. It means pant sizes soon to go down. Keep up the great work and those exercises!
