92 yesterday

Saturday, May 14, 2011

but the good news is there was only 9% humidity so that wasn't bad at all. today my husband and I are off to Guadalajara to buy some floats for the pool and then the neighbors are coming over and we will float the warm day away.
Hope all my sparks buddies are doing well.

    We are looking at a long string of damp 60ish days in RI.
Wish I could borrow some of that heat and sunshine.
Do you have some shade in the pool?
Our pool in Anguilla has a shady section for most of the day.

What a difference a good night's sleep makes

Friday, May 13, 2011

Got a great night's sleep.....it is so wonderful to wake up knowing you slept well and replenished your energy. The day always looks better with lots of energy there are many possibilities. Today I need to take Mom to the dentist as she is having a tooth pulled. And I also get to pick up some clothes that were altered for me.....yes they were taken in. I decided to do this as I am committed to staying this size and don't want the option of going back into the larger clothes so I had them cut down.
Hope all my sparks buddies are doing well.
Have a great day.

    There is nothing better than a good night's sleep
as it makes you feel more energetic and ready to
tackle the new day. What a great attitude with
getting your clothes to be taken in. Stay positive.
Have a great weekend. emoticon

today will be a hot one

Thursday, May 12, 2011

Probably a good day to float in the pool. I will have to be careful not to fall asleep in the pool since I didn't sleep too well last night. I am off the sleeping pills but the bad news is that I still am dealing with insomnia. It is a shame that as we age many of us just can't get the needed zzz we need. And it is crazy as there really shouldn't be any reason for me not to sleep. I eat right and don't eat for several hours before going to bed. I cut caffeine out of my diet years ago. I am retired so do not have to stay away worrying about work.....geez, what a pain in the butt.
Hope all my sparks buddies are doing just great.

    I have the same problem.
I'm not willing to give up my ambien yet.
Even when I cut my pills in half, my hip pain wakes me up in the night.
It stinks!

Busy day planning trip for September

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

My husband and I spent about 6 hours today on the internet planning most of our trip to Italy, Greece and Turkey in September. Thank goodness for Trip Advisor.com. We went country by country and city/town/village and read reviews and such and booked hotels and tours. It can be somewhat overwhelming but nice to have all those tools available. I think the trip is coming together well. Gosh but with all that we are going to see and do it makes me tired just thinking of it. glad we built in some rest days.
Hope all my sparks buddies are doing well.

DH yours talker or non talker?

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

I am just wondering for all of my married friends out there.........does your husband talk much or is he quiet. My husband really only gets "chatty" when hes drinking otherwise he might only say about 5 words to me in a whole day. I just keep busy and do things but just wondering if most men are quiet.
Hope all of you are doing just great.
Have a great week
Sallie

    We talk or text throughout the day. He isn't as verbal as I am but he tries really hard. I'm always saying "Conversation Please!" to encourage a give and take exchange. I really am uncomfortable with a one sided dialogue. He is also more reluctant to share his feelings. We work on making our communication better. emoticon

    My hubby is pretty quiet........ at least around here. But he talks all day long as he is a liquor salesman!!!! I guess maybe he is just tired of talking by the time he gets home.

    My DH never stops talking. He drives me nuts 90% of the time. He's in sales and he is definitely a sales person. He talks all the time, he talks loud and he talks fast.
We are so totally the opposite. I'm more of a quiet person and love quiet time. While he's at work I get time to myself and it's so nice!

    Most people think of my dh as a quiet guy but he talks quite a bit to m, although as he's slowly losing his hearing he is getting quieter.
Interesting question, Peanut!
When I get together with my sisters or my bffs we never shut up!

    Well, I am not married but we have been together for around 10 years. Not married is her choice. But there are quite a few days that we say very little to each other. I feel this has to do with our schedules being so busy. Kids have practices or games, we work out at different times, etc. etc..
When you are together day in and day out, unless something out of the normal happens there really isnt much to talk about.
