Up early to take my DGD to her bowling league and we ate a good breakfast, got ready and left. Saw that my friends where deer hunting and I didn't get to talk to them since I was not home. She started off and was doing really good, had aspare and got a strike her next throw. She was on her way too getting over a 100 game and got in the 9th frame and threw 2 zeros. 10th frame she had an 8 which gave her a 94 but that is really good since her average is 63. Next game I do not know what happen to all the children on both teams because you never saw so many zeros in a game. She ended with a 27, the little imp he ended with a 29 and the other girl a 24 what happen who knows because the other team did the same thing but I don't have the paper because one of their bowlers had to come in and bowl. She fell on Thursday and hurt her back which I did not know about and she said it hurt. She is getting better and I hope they don't move her up to the other league.

Because of her size which is 55 1/4 " and she is 7 makes her look like she is 10 or 11 but maturityshe is still a little girl and she would be lost. Those children are in 4th grade to about 6 or 7th and way beyond her. She has had 4th graders want to know whose class she is in and when I tell them she is in 2nd grade they think I am kidding. She will have to be protected because her Mom said the Dr. told her that little one can grow to be taller than her father which is a nightmare as he is 6' 7" and Mom is 5' 9" so she doesn't have a chance. I hope he is wrong but she has grown 4 inches since summer. I love her so much and try to do for her as much as I can and hate to see her have a hard time.

Her Mom was tied up with work so I brought her back home with me and told her Mom to pick her up here. She had to take tools to her husbands job not hers and she arrived about 12:00 PM. I made them lunch and they did not leave till after 3 PM so my plans for the day went out the window. As I said I will go with my schedule when I can according to interruptions. As soon as I get the DVD and VHS working I will start with most of my exercises. I have managed to walk and already have 15,211 steps and still have 1 more walk for tonight. I am going to try and lift some weights but want to have the DVD on. I will put it on the laptop but that is small to see across the room. I have the 5 walks covered and more, house work, eating, dogs, Spark points so just have to get the weights and Groovie dance in and kettle bell since I have a DVD now for that.

Tomorrow I am suppose to have the day to myself so we shall see. Monday daughter off so DGD will not come and that means another day for me. Never a dull moment for me and never a slow down time. Even when she was here I was sitting but the back was starting to hurt and I got up and just walked around the kitchen and talked. I have 17,220 steps today, 13.04 miles. I have 13,343 step for miles, miles 10.06 in 114 minutes, not a bad day.

The little fish are still surviving and hope tomorrow Callie gets her bath. Fish tank will get cleaned too along with garlic getting planted in the garage. Oh so many things too do and my list never stops.

I found my stuffed peppers in the freezer tonight and some potato wedges so that was dinner. I also found the chocolate ice cream I made from a Spark recipe and it is still good. Now that I am getting the food down in the freezer I am finding things I wanted to get to. By the time we get it cleaned next Saturday I will have a lot more out of it and then I can organize it again. I had it so straighten that I even had a list on the door to what was on each shelf and it worked for a long time. But thing get put in and then more and soon you have a mess, so time to clean.

Time to get something else done before the night ends, so all have a blessed Sunday. Praise God and spend it with friends and family. God bless all of you.

Catch you tomorrow with thanks to the Lord.

    You're never done, are you? Try to get things done, but don't overdue things and hurt yourself.

The wind was blowing a gale and last night it beat and banged against my home all night. Too windy to walk, when I picked my DGD up at school it just about blew me off the sidewalk. Before I left I straighten up and also did some walking. Before I went to bed I already had close to 2500 steps. When I finished my walk at midnight I still walked every hour, 15 minutes and that is what I am going to do. Since I am going to sleep a little late now and then if I am up late.

I was going to take DGD out to dinner instead of lunch tomorrow but she is to get green all week. She had gotten a yellow for not paying attention and I was going to let that slide but today she had yellow too. I didn't want to cook so we came home and I cooked. Then had to clean the kitchen and work on Spark some because I didn't have anything done. We looked at the Groovie Dance tape I have and we will do it when she is here for more than a few hours. I will start doing it each day and it is cool. We played Candyland remember the days with your children. Then she had her snack and was ready for bed shortly after. I got her in bed but first measured her height and she is 55 1/4 inches and 7 years old. By 3rd grade she will be 5 foot.

I have finished my walking and my total steps where 13,864 with 10.50 miles. My miles where 9.44 in 107 minutes and 12,153 steps so I am getting more every so many days. I am also doing speed walking more getting back in the routine.

Tomorrow I will try and get more of the exercise done after I take DGD home. Like I said when I made up my list with interruptions I will do the best I can.

Tomorrow I have to bath Callie and try and get Angel done too now that I know everything is okay with the sceptic.

I have been a very good girl and for 2 days have not eaten a cookie or piece of chocolate and I am back to my 140 pounds. I am still going to take a couple more off and stay at about 137. Leave a few extra pounds on for winter and cold weather or getting sick.

Have to be up early so I better go to bed after 1 more walk. Have a pleasant Saturday with friends and family. God bless you and watch over you.

Catch you tomorrow with DGD scores.

    You are getting better everyday with your steps, keep up that good work there. It isn't always easy to get everything done when life charges in and takes over, but even the little things can count for something, too.

Had all planned for today since the Septic repair man was coming by 10 AM. I was up and dress by 9 AM and had just finished breakfast when he came. He pulled the cover and their was hardly or just about a 1/3 of a tank of water so it didn't need pumping. He said the pump in it looked okay so it may be a short in the alarm. So since I am just here and I don't use a whole lot of water it should be a long time before I need anything done. I am just going to keep the alarm off. He said that should be fine. I am really glad because it would have cost me about $400.00 to have it pumped.

After he left I laid down because I am not feeling that good. I have come to the conclusion for me to try and be like normal people and get up early it is not going to happen. I have to be up by 8 AM 3 days in 2 weeks and 2 days in 2 weeks. The days I don't have to be up I am going to sleep or attempt to however long I want. I am a night person and when most people are in bed I am going strong. Then I go to bed and try to act like everyone else in the morning and it just isn't possible. It isn't that I have a lot to get up for. I have my 2 dogs and my Spark points and friends but outside of that there is very little except cleaning the house in the winter time. My winter gardening is going good as my tomato plant has a bud. I will let DGD help plant the garlic so I have it in late summmer or Autumn.

Come summer I have to be up because I have a whole lot to keep going and I love it. What they say about winter and people that do not work is so true. We need the sunshine and getting out in fresh air. I am trying to walk outside as much as the weather will allow. I should have been out today but it was real windy and I was outside this morning for a little bit. My walking is not going to be to good today because I am just not up to it and when I say that you know I am not good.

I have done a little around the house and some walking so it is not a complete bust. I still have a few hours I may try and get my 10,000 with a wing and pray.

Tomorrow I have to pick up DGD at school and take her to her bowing Saturday so it will be push time. I probably worry too much what other people think and even my DGD asked me what time I got up Friday when I picked her up from school last week. Now her Mom sleeps till noon when she is not working so I can do what I want.

This is just a day that I have to come to terms with how to protect myself health wise and do what is best for me. When I made my list last night it is that I will do those things each hour or so and I will have time to do other things also . I rest when I sit and do my Spark points but I am going to also start doing some of my crafts that I have. I will have full days or nights whenever I decide to do them and that is what I need. I do not like to be idle and my husband would go crazy because I can do 3 or 4 things at once and he would sit and watch a show and I would be going a mile a minute. One night he asked if I could just sit still and watch a show so I tried the next night to do it. I didn't know what to do with my hands, kept moving to get comfortable and he told me get something to do your driving me crazy and he laughed. I never just sit and I don't sit more than 15 minutes just the way it is. Now if I had someone to cuddle up too I may sit still. HA, HA. LOL

Love life no matter how you may have to live it because that is up to you. Going to close and try and walk some more. God Bless you all my dear friends. Have a great Friday the start of the weekend and some a long weekend.

Catch you tomorrow with DGD.

    I hope you feel better soon. Do what you can and what you need to do and let the rest worry about itself until later.

Bright and early off to the sharks, HA HA bowling again and not a bad day. I was tired but what is new so I just lived with it. We bowled people that haven't bowled long and they had 125 pins over them and we had to cover that. The first game we won but after that no way possible. The first girl was only a few pins over her average but the second girl 21 pins over, her husband 38 pins over his average on top of the 125 and we didn't bowl good as a team this time. I was over my average 2 times 13 pins 2nd game and 32 the last game. So this week 4, 0, 3.5 and 1 so not bad and I didn't do bad 8 over my average and 4 under, that is pretty good.

Came right home and ate lunch and laid down for 2 hours. I have been walking in the house because it is raining and I almost have 10,000 steps. Next 15 minutes I will have them and then I will have more time to do extra.

My days are going to get scheduled which is hard with the outside things I have to do but here it goes. It will work on half a day Wed., full dayThurs, 2 Fri's, 2 Sat's, Sun

In between all this I also have to pick up DGD and this will not be on bowling days just parts of it. I will do this with cold months and warm months it changes because with all the work I do outside and swimming. I get in a rut with cold weather and have to stop it. So here it goes girls and guys we push ourselves, make our plans and if we do most of them we do good. I am not dreaming, I will do the best I can when I don't have interruptions.

Time to walk and I am pass my time so have a great Thursday and have some fun. God bless you always.

Up early and thank God for 5 hour energy and extra energy because I needed it this morning. Monday night I stay up and do my Spark points except a few things because I knew I would have no time to do them. So of I went energized and the first league at 9 AM I bowled over my average every time and we took 4 not bad.

I had my fillet of founder with lettuce and tomato slices for lunch. Then I went walking and I should write it down because I walk for about 10 to 15 minutes and most likely 1 to 2 miles after I eat. Then we started to bowl and i mssed my average by 5 pins but the other team bowled over their average and also had 57 pins to their favor. 2 games I bowled over my average and the 3rd game we need 3 pins to win it and I had the 5 pin and missed it. I had 171 already but I was upset so we lost all the games.

I got myself ready to leave and was going to pick up bananas and grapes but was afraid I would be late getting to the school for my DGD. I got there 3:03 PM and had plenty of time so I red a magazine. She came out and we came home and then it was let the dogs out, give her a snack, make her Moms dinner and do her homework while I made the salad. She got done her homework and then I made the dogs dinner and then made ours. By that time it was time to get ready to leave o bowl and that's what we did.

Picked up my girlfriend and had to bowl against my daughter and the guy on her team that bowls 300, 11 times. Well it was a very interesting night and after agood game over my average it went down hill fast from there I didn't even make a 400 series but I was not alone because on both teams people struggled. The 300 bowler bowled a 483 series 1 game was 130 so if he had a hard time the rest of us where too. Problem was he threw his ball from the left across to the right curve back to the left. The oil was being thrown every where. My low game was 105 and I flipped in my head not outward. Out of all of it we won 3.5 because the first game we split so you know bowling was bad but we had fun any way.

Came home and got on line fast to get done. Going to close because I don't have a timed walk and I need to do one. God bless you always.

Walked 50 minutes, 6,110 steps and 4.12 miles. Steps 10,445, 7.40 miles back to having to get the 10,000 +. Monday walked 7.85 miles, 90 minutes and 10,342 steps.

Catch you tomorrow still going.
