What happened to November??

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

I must really be having fun because time sure is flying. I am having fun and time is flying. Time just seems to disappear boom. Fortunately I have most of my Christmas shopping done so if December flys by I have it done. We celebrate January 8th. I will be pretty busy during December so I'm sure it will fly by. We have 5 chorus concerts by the 21st. I have several plays, several Christmas parties etc to keep me busy. And not a thing to wear. LOL. I've actually gotten more clothes in the past 6 months than I've bought in the past 10 years. I'm still not at goal so I hesitate to get clothes because I hope to be a smaller size but my clothes were pretty baggy and I hated to spend money on alterations.

    Congratulations on the baggy clothes. Buy carefully and enjoy the new things.

    I really HEAR you regarding buying clothes! For some reason it seems a lot easier to buy the LARGER size on the way up (because the clothes we're wearing are so tight we can't breathe!) than it is to buy our interim sizes on the way DOWN! Strange...because we deserve the reward for our lost weight. My sister bought a huge bundle of wonderful clothes for very little $ (some were still new with hangtags) on eBay several years ago. And then she passed the ones she didn't wear on to me. I haven't checked out eBay, but based on the things she gave me, it is something to consider.

You're doing well. Keep up the good work!

First Thing This Morning

Monday, November 29, 2010

I saw that there was a terrorist going to blow up a tree lighting/fireworks celebration in Oregon just like the one I went to last night. He didn't but it's scary to think there people out there wanting to.

Poor Morgan vomited and is feeling so sad. I obviously gave her too much turkey. She's had it since Thanksgiving and been ok. Of course now I'm thinking maybe the meat was bad and I ate it too so now my stomach is feeling funny.

Sassy had her puppies but I don't know how many. She had nine.


Went to the library and watched Rice Park Tree Lighting and Fireworks

Sunday, November 28, 2010

I had to take 3 books back to the library because one of them was a day overdure and I owed $.25 on it. I also picked up 3 books one of which I have to have read for the Mystery Spark Team chat tonight. Then I stopped across the street to watch the lighting of the Christmas tree and Fireworks. It was supposed to be at 5 and I left the library at 5 to 5 but they didn't do the Lights and Fireworks until 20 after. There was chorus' singing, people singing, and lots of talking, much of what I could only half hear. There was packed cars, gridlock around the park, lots of people with children coming after 5. The whole thing started at 4 but I didn't care if I heard all the speeches. It was really crowded in the park and most people had those colored lighted flashlight flashing things. They may have been giving them away. I thought there might be cheese curds for sale on the other side of the park but I didn't have any money anyway, just enough for the fine. It was pretty impressive once it lit up and the fireworks went off. The big tree was colored lights and the trees around it white but I must say the colored was way better. The fireworks went off right by the tree and I was surprised they did it so close to all the people. The stuff that might have fallen would have fallen on the people. It sounds like that park in Portland was packed like this that the terrorist was trying to blow the truck up. Scary.

Lori's dog Sassy is finally having her puppies. She's been in the house for awhile and has figured how to huff and pant to make Lori give her back rubs. They were going to come and pick some things up from Bailey's but now will have to do that some other time. Matilda the wild kitty would tease Sassy so much Lori took her to her Mother-in-Laws on Thanksgiving.

    I was hoping to go to the tree lighting because I had never been and thought my daughter would like it but we didn't make it. Maybe we'll get down there sometime this December to see the tree.

Busy Saturday

Saturday, November 27, 2010

Lori agreed I could call at 3 instead of 4 so I could walk to the library and see the fireworks and Rice Park lit up at the same time. I have to get a book back because I already owe $.25 on it because it's on hold. I read it awhile ago just never got it back. I need to pick up the book we are supposed to read for Mystery Book Chat tomorrow night. I'd better get reading as soon as I get it.

Watching Dr Oz

Friday, November 26, 2010

He's covering supplement today. I take the 4 he recommends and so far don't take the dangerous. Bitter orange to lose weight is like ephedra. Lobelia for sex stimulants. I already forgot the 3rd that is taken for asthma. I take calcium wrong. I take it with the rest of my supplements and evidently it can affect other items or lose it's effectiveness taken with others. You should take it two hours after eating. I just hate trying to figure out when to take stuff and that's why I pretty much all of them together. I do take my iron alone with orange juice and seem to have raised my hemoglobin from my usual 10 to 12. It might have helped to have a hernia fixed at the top of the stomach. Next the dirtest fruits and vegetables but I should have those because SparkPeople is all the time asking that in trivia and I sometimes still get it wrong.

    I did not know calcium was to be taken alone....and after a meal! How about that?!! There's always so much to keep up with!
Have a great weekend!
