I have to confess!!!!!!!!!!!

Saturday, January 22, 2011

Now those of you who bragged on my for eating one cookie should know me better than that! These were not store bought cookies! These cookies had a lot of love baked in them! There were peanut butter, chocolate chip and banana oatmeal!! I did have more than one! But I have made up for it today! Just breakfast so far today and more fitness ! We went to Walmart and I toured the store several time looking for DH. He says he was right behind me trying to catch up (right) emoticon We got home and DH started wiring on the magic gate here at the lake! Our place is completely fenced! Now Mr R has to stay in the yard!!! We also found out the guy who cooks steaks at The Diner at the lake had a heart attack over the holidays. He also found out he has diabetes and very very high cholesterol!!! He is doing OK now, we will probably see him tonight! He is only 42 that should be a wake up call for all of us!
I hope you all have had a great Saturday!! It is rather cold here and now cloudy!! Enjoy your evening and Sunday!!! emoticon emoticon

    Well they do sound like very yummy cookies! I know how you feel though, I made a batch of sugar cookies for the kids, I did use applesauce in lou of butter but still. I think I probably have eaten more than the kids! I sent more than half in my DH lunch box for work, now I just need to get rid of the others and not by eating them!

It feels good to get confess to something that you feel guilty for. I had to do the same thing by tracking those darned cookies. I hope your friend gets better and it is a wake up call to him to change things. 42 is very young, especially to be having a heart attack. emoticon

    I hope you feel better now that you confessed, but I could have never stopped at one of those yummy sounding cookies either! LOL I'm really sorry about that 42 year old man. I hope that he is able to get his health turned around. Your hubby sounds like mine when we're in the store. emoticon

    42 is so young to have all that going on. I'm glad he's doing better.

Glad you're doing well and I really hope you enjoy your new fence!!

Clear streets-back to work!!!!!

Friday, January 21, 2011

The streets are clear so we are back at work!!!!! A lot of the trees still have ice and the ground has a little bit of snow and ice!! We had a beautiful sun rise this morning!! The sky had oranges and pinks and purples!!! The angles had painted a beautiful picture to great the day!!! Now it is cloudy and 23!!! Our office manager baked cookies while she was off yesterday-peanut butter and chocolate chip! Guess what I had for breakfast. But just one each!!!
I hope every little Spark in SparkVille is safe and warm!!! Have a fantastic Friday!!!!! emoticon emoticon

  So glad to hear that you enjoyed the sunrise. One of my favorite things to experience. You are a better woman than I if you can just have one cookie each! Hope the rest of your day was good.

We got freezing drizzle and rain last night!! We had a tiny amount of snow!! Our office manager called about 6:15 this morning and said go back to bed!! So guess what I did!! Mr R and I slept in!! DH made breakfast burritos for breakfast!!! He is trying to go in to a job! He said it is very slick out! I am not going out!! It is around 18 with a wind chill!!!!!
DH bought a PS3 system last night, when we figure it out maybe there will be some fitness games to play!!!!!

    It's good that your office manager told you to stay home in those conditions. I hope your DH faired okay! We have seen on our news report coverage of cars sliding around on very icy streets in Pennsylvania - looks like mayhem - or dodgem cars on ice! Take care over there - have a wonderful day indoors!

Good Tests results!!!!

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

It is Wonderful Wednesday!! The Dr office called yesterday afternoon with my mammogram results, all is well! I do not need to be mashed again until next year! And I do not care what they say it hurts!!!!! emoticon
I finished another cap last night!! I am going to try another pattern tonight!! We are expecting a winter storm tonight! They say it will start with freezing rain, then sleet, then snow!!! We are kind of on the border line of the bad stuff! I watched Biggest Loser last night and was disappointed in the Oklahoma guys!! It is still an inspiring show! It show if you work at something (anything) you can get it done!!!! We may not do it as fast, but we are getting it done!! WooHoo for us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are not quitters!! We will stay the course!!! emoticon
Every little Spark in SparkVille stay safe, warm and happy!!!!!

    Hooray - no more "mashing" until next year. And you are absolutely, it does hurt - sometimes. I kind of think it depends on the technician whether it actually hurts or is just uncomfortable - either way, we don't look forward to that annual event - but we rejoice with you in the good news!!

Well Gloomy Tuesday!!!!!!!

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

It is gloomy here and only 39! Usually I get to work and stay in but not today!! I have been out and had my yearly mammogram done!!!! While I was there the Technician took my to the Cancer Center and I visited with a lady there and I will take my chemo caps there as I finish them! It will be on my way home!! They had some there! The Cancer Center and Radiation share the caps that come in!!! Right now I can finish one every 2 or 3 days! I have lots of yarn from my Dad's and Mom's crafts!!!!! This will put the yarn to good use! Next went to the little grocery store up the road and got beans and corn bread for the other girls in the office and I had a pot pie!!! In a little while I will take Miss Moxie for her shots and follow up to her being sick last week! ( We do that for the boss)!
Now if I could get some work done in between!!!! emoticon
I hope everyone is safe, warm and happy!!! Have a Terrific Tuesday!!!!! emoticon emoticon

Very icy morning with delays everywhere. Then the temperatures warmed up and melted the ice and and much of our snow. WOOHOO!! Supposed to have freezing rain and snow tonight.
Glad to see your week is going well.
