Just checking in :)

Sunday, September 26, 2010

It has been almost a week since I have been on SP :(
I had a busy few nights at work, then busy days off and now I am back at work for the next 4 nights.
We are now on countdown until my niece arrives from New Zealand for her first ever visit! She arrives on Wednesday and will be here for 3 weeks, so I expect that I will be pretty erratic as to when I am on here, but I am trying to stick to my program and exercise!
Next week we got to Disneyland and then she also wants to go to the beach which is funny for someone coming from New Zealand - we have the best west coast beaches there! So we are going to go to the beach before coming back to Arizona!
She also is super excited to be going to Walmart!!! So that is on our list of to do's first!!
I will try to blog about our tripping around as I am able, my two will be on fall break so I will be entertaining 3 teenagers - 17,16 & 14. Though they are both looking forward to reconnecting with their cousin whom they have not seen for 10 years! I am just along for the ride :)
So that is my life for now....

BTW - remember I had ordered "The Spark" on ebay....well it has arrived so I plan on reading that over the next few days :)

TTYL

    It seems like your life is filled with lots of things to do. I hope you enjoy the visit!

The Spark should be interesting reading. I had a hard time putting it down!

    Have a great couple of weeks! I hope your niece has an awesome time. I agree it is funny that she wants to go to the beach when we have great ones here. I guess it is like when I go overseas and order McDonalds, just wanna make sure it is the same!

    It sounds like you will be enjoying the kids and having fun going to the mentioned places. Have fun. You will be getting some workout by walking.

Keep up the good work.

Monday Already?

Monday, September 20, 2010

I am not sure where the time has gone emoticon I have not been on here all that much over the last few days and I have not been logging my food either! It is no-one's fault but mine, I know that I have been making good choices with my eating but have not been recording any of it on here emoticon Also I have not been drinking enough water either ggrrr! So I know that this is my downfall and so am making a concentrated effiort to drink my water......so far today I have had 64 oz water + 2 20 oz bottles of sobe and I have 2 hours left to my day! I am on mountain time and it is really 10pm on Sunday evening! I am at work so will keep drinking all night!

    I found a 32 oz BPA-free water bottle with a straw at my local WalMart. I take it with me everywhere ... I know I need to fill and drink it at least 2x a day. But it's always handy and that helps me get my water.

I know you're in the middle of a long stretch of 12-hour shifts. You CAN do this!!!!!

Busy Day planned

Thursday, September 16, 2010

I need to get on with my day, my challenge to myself is to not spend too much time on the computer, I tend to get on here and then wow! where did the time go??
Anyhow, have a lot planned today....
Have a brunch for ladies bible study at church so am going to make Tuna Pasta Casserole!
I also am doing a home visit with one of my families for my job, then going for a drive with my husband
We also have to drop our trailer off to the high school as it is our homecoming parade tomorrow and we are pulling half of the band! The other half is on another trailer, so today the band kids will be decorating the trailers.
Somewhere in there I will also be going to Curves, probably later this afternoon :)
Oh almost forgot.....I got my replacement blackberry yesterday but there is no internet, email setup and alot of other standard apps not on there so back to Sprint I go!

Bye for now

    I'm glad that you are making CurvesTime for yourself in a BUSY Day. Homecoming Parades are Fun, but I have never pulled a trailer for one. That sounds like work!!
I have had 2 Blackberrys, and really never had much luck with either of them. Hopefully you will get yours straightened out and be able to get on line with yours.

    Sounds like a busy day. I have to challenge myself nearly every day to not spend so much time on the computer either. No wonder time flies by and I feel like I didn't get things done!!! lol

RIP Blackberry

Monday, September 13, 2010

Today my blackberry has died! Well actually to be honest it has been going through a slow death.....but today I noticed that my email application was not working and then other applications started to malfunction too, when someone called I could not disconnect from the call properly and then sometimes I could not get the keypad to work at all, no use at all to me! So off I went to the Sprint store armed with my old phone to get reactivated and let BB RIP. But when I got to the store the Sprint Guy tried for a replacement phone and after 2 hours of hanging out in the store, a new blackberry is on its way to me! At the moment I am "phoneless" as I have to wait another hour before getting my old one reactivated or else they would send me a replacement for that instead of my balckberry.....so the saga goes on! But I am glad that he tried to get me a replacement phone and I hope that this one works out much better. I have had problems with my BB since the beginning and I really want the internet, especially with being away from home so much, it is my lifeline to my family.
So hoping to be back with a phone later today........

    I let mine go too. Got a phone with the droid software and just love it. I got the devour because I liked the keyboard and some other functions. Dont like the camera but I dont use it that often. Verison is the only carrier I believe that has droid. Check it out. You wont miss the BB at all.
