Got the lift I needed!!

Friday, July 15, 2011

Spark People are the absolute best!!!! Thanks for all the kind words and the Hugs! Hugs are the very best!!! I also talked to my Cousin last night! She rec'd her sun bonnet yesterday!! She loved it. I am going to make her some more! Just talking to her was a lift!
I talked to my oldest Daughter and told her not only did DH have all the work we talked about the night before but another job is ready!! At least it is in air conditioning! She told me about her friend-her friends Grand parents were killed in a fire that was evidently set by a neighbor boy! Such a waste of two precious people! Sunday is our neighbor here at the office 4oth wedding anniversary! We are going to get them some cupcakes (that is what he said he wanted)!!
Thanks again for the words of encouragement and HUGS!!!
Love Ya!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Susan

Kind of in a funk!!!

Thursday, July 14, 2011

Our oldest Daughter called yesterday the good news she got a job at Dillards emoticon! Bad news she ask if her family could go to the lake in two weeks, with her working they can't go until Saturday night and they wanted to stay through Monday! DH does not want anyone there when we re not there. I know understandable! He is so busy-he can not take off that Monday! He said if all goes well maybe. You know me I want to fix it and can't! Plus I do not think the new meds I am on (due to insurance change) are working all that great! I seem to get really down in the evenings! I know as Mom would said this to shall pass! I need to put on my Big Girl Panties and deal with it and go on!!!
Back to the good news I am glad our Daughter got this job it will help them out so much and help her!!! She like myself and the youngest Daughter we are enjoying our kindles!!!
Now on to a more POSITIVE and productive day! Enjoy every minute of everyday! Love YA!! emoticon Susan

    I'm glad to hear that she has a job. That, I know, makes a huge difference. Just pray about what to do about the lake. Everything will be ok. Just don't let it stress you out too badly!!

Exercise and a good deed!!!

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

I got to work today and along with the wonderful rain last night we had high winds! The cottonwood tree at work lost a lot of limbs as did the neighbor's tree. When I got to work I start getting the big limbs in the dumpster. I went over to see our neighbors (he has cancer). They are without air conditioning. Their Son who I went to school with came in he is working on getting them air!! I got the big limbs out of their yard. He told me that was his job and I told he had others things to do!! I got all the big limbs and put what I could in the dumpster! I have had my morning work out! emoticon
Everyone make this day count! Check on friends, neighbors, loved one, the elderly! Enjoy every minute of every day!!! Love YA! emoticon Susan

    Some people cannot believe that someone would do something for them without wanting anything and how sad is that?!? I hope the neighbor's son appreciated your help! We need to return to our sense of community and you have started on that path! Thank you!

Sun Bonnet and stuff!!!

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

I finished the sun bonnet for my cousin who is under going chemo! (Pictures on my page!!) I am going to mail it to her today! I sent a note telling her if she liked it I would make more and different styles!
On the food front I am in binge mode for some reason! I need food to stay away from me! And I need to stay away from unhealthy food!!! I know I am under some stress from my Son and such, but that should not be an excuse! There should be no excuses!!! I need to deal with it and move on! So this is me emoticon moving on! Have a fantastic Tuesday! The heat is moving east so everyone stay cool and hydrated!!!!! emoticon Love you!!!!! Susan

    I agree with Jess. Try exercising out the stress! (unintentional rhyme lol)

I get the munchies pretty bad sometimes. I do NOT like those days! I like days when I feel almost too busy to think about food! Sometimes, if I track my munchies faithfully, that can be motivation to stop... sometimes not.

Here's hoping whatever is triggering you today vanishes magically overnight!

    I LOVE THE SUNBONNET!!

And, if food won't stay away from you - then you'll just have to stay away from food!! What about chewing gum? What about Crystal Lite water? Keep looking - you'll find the answer, I'm sure!

Sugar attack!

Monday, July 11, 2011

Over the weekend I ate way to much sugar! Luckily it did not show on the scale! I do that every now and then, usually on the weekend! We do not keep that many goodies at the house, but at the lake, that is a different story! At least at the lake I get more fitness!
I finished my chemo sun bonnet for my cousin and I will try to get pictures on later today!!
It is 10:50 am and already 95!! Everyone please try to stay cool and hydrated! Those of you who have to much rain stay dry and send us in Oklahoma and Texas some of your rain!! emoticon
Enjoy your Monday!!!!! Love YA!! emoticon Susan

    I think your mindfulness over your weekend-sugar-weekness probably helps you keep from overdoing. Ya got more sugar than ya meant to, but I bet it was less than you would have consumed in "the old days." Right!

    I'm glad you're not beating yourself up over the sugar thing. That'd only make it worse.
