I am ready. San Marino is our first destination. Our first living the good life challenge is drinking water, it always is. I kind of wish they would do something different. It is always the same challenges. I have to step up my exercise.
I have my menu made through Friday of next week. I struggle with eating on days I do a flea market because you can only do so much for food. That is only one day out of the week though. I did reach all my nutritional goals, I just don't feel quite as satisfied as I do on days I am home to eat.
I have my bathing suits washed and my gym bag is packed. I put the exercises I do in the water into a grouping in the fitness tracker. Unfortunately, fitbit doesn't give me any very active minutes. I don't understand why because I am active but, I know what I do. My problem is I exercise, then I am sedentary the rest of the day. I have to find things to keep me active. Any ideas?
Have a great weekend.

We received another assignment. This is one that I refuse to do. Actually I can't do it. The DVD thingamajigger in my computer is broken, it won't read a disc. Hahahahaha. I wouldn't do it anyway. We are suppose to take a picture before the challenge and then one after the challenge to notice the difference in our body. I am at goal, so I should just see a more toned body, hopefully. I don't let anyone take a picture of me and if I catch someone trying to I give them the finger and stick out my tongue. The only picture I have to sit for because I am threatened with bodily harm is the Christmas photo. I do that for my Mom, I would do anything for my Mom.
This is the beginning of a new week. Dream big.

Saturday was a complete waste of my time. Two people showed up and didn't buy anything. They were looking for something specific in earrings. I stayed for 3 hours then left. Today would have been a beautiful day for a flea market but I was in pain. My back was killing me, still is. I put a pain patch on and took some Advil. It has helped some but.......I figure that by next Sunday I should be alright.
I stayed home and did 3 loads of laundry. It did hurt hanging the clothes on the line. My Mom called, then Gary called. He is home from his cruise. I was surprised to hear from him. I thought he had another week but he will be home one day and then gone another 8. After that he will be home for 5 days. Maybe I can talk him into going for a pizza. I am craving a pizza.
Have a good week.

I was at my Mom's yesterday. We were sitting around the table with my older niece Kim talking about the past. We were talking about Jack, her crazy cat. A stray cat had kittens in my landlord's garage it must have been 1998 or 1999. I was still doing the flea market and I rented a UHaul van on the weekends back then. Well, I backed into the garage door and that is how the cat got in to have the kittens. I talked my landlord into letting me take care of them and the mama until they were old enough to be adopted. I called the mama mama. Once I started feeding her, she knew where to come. She would sit at the bottom of the steps and meow until I would come down and feed her. She finally felt comfortable enough where she let me play with the kittens and she would sit under my car.
I called him Crazy Jack. He would run up my arm and sit on my neck. I am allergic to cats so I would take him down and put him back on the grass. No sooner his pays hit the grass and he was running back up my arm and sitting on my neck. I was sneezing, itching and broken out in hives for weeks. Finally the landlord saw that I was getting really attached to this kittens and told me to take them to Stanley Quarter Park and drown them in the pond. I cried and screamed at her not to touch my babies.
I gathered the kittens in one crate and got Mama in another and took them to my niece. She has a big yard and has all kinds of animals. She would keep them until they could leave Mama. She named Mama Sunny because she loved laying in the sun and renamed a lot of the kittens. She kept Sunny and Jack. Cats are suppose to hate water. Well, this crazy kitten Jack loves water and would run around the toilet seat and jump in the toilet bowl and swim. Kim would have to come and get him out. If Kim took a shower and Jack was not in his pen he would jump in the shower with her.
One night after work Kim had a dinner date and was taking a shower to get ready. She told Carey where the key was and to just let himself in. Kim was in the shower with Jack. Imagine Cary's surprise when he hears Kim yelling Jack stop it. I told you not to do that. I am going to make you get out of the shower if you don't stop it. The poor guy didn't know what to do. He was going to leave, but Kim turned off the shower and he didn't want her to hear him so he just sat on the couch. She opened up the bathroom door and told the cat to scat downstairs she had to get dressed. So here came the cat prancing down the stairs, fur standing up from being wet. The cat jumped up on the couch and onto the sill where he loves to lay and watch what is going on outside. She yelled downstairs Jack you better not be on my sofa. All of a sudden Carey just started laughing. So you're Jack he said.
Kim still has Jack, Carey they were together until about a year ago. That proves an animal's love is unconditional.
