    It's been so long since we've touched base...miss you, Sister! Just got back from Mother's. I dropped everything and rushed to her last Tuesday as she was taken by ambulance to the hospital. Turned out to a UTI that she's probably had for awhile. She was hallucinating brown dogs! I returned last night as she is on the mend. At 83, everything can change quickly. My weight woes continue to go 315! BUT, I've tracked for the day, now I must commit to sticking with the plan. The grandboys spent the night and will be with me until 6 or so, while mom works and then works out. My exercise is non-existent...waiting for the city pool to open May 1st. I need to get back to my Wii and stretch bands. How's your strength and stamina holding out? Hope all is well with the kids...both of mine had "situations" over the last couple of months, but they seem to be in a good place now. We all got together in the mountains last month for a long weekend. Great fun and lots of food and laughs! Love you...

  Hi Eleni.........
It sounds like you are armed to fight this cold. I hope so and I hope it is a mild one and short-lived.
emoticon to Bill!!!!! He looks so happy holding his trophy. He reminds me of my one liked to bowl more than he did. He had the craziest approach. People would actually stop and watch because it looked so funny! But.........he surprised them all with great games and unbelievable accuracy.
What crazy weather we are having. I have NEVER heard of so many tornadoes in so many states at one time. In 2008, we had 3 tornadoes come through an area about 7 miles South of where we live. It was the state highway that I drove to my job every day. It looked like a war zone. Huge trees were uprooted and found miles away. I took that road on Tuesday and it still looks so bare. It will take many more years for things to get back to normal. Mother Nature has a way of keeping us humble.
Have a good weekend and take good care of yourself.

Lovely butterfly today Eleni, I'd love to see one but will have to wait another couple of months yet!
Wind warning up here in southwestern Ontario, Canada, we'e suppose to nail everything down tonight. Rain, then maybe some snow tomorrow. But we aren't getting anything like down south, no tornadoes, thank goodness.
Be safe anyone in that area!
Have a good rest tonight and more of that chicken soup Eleni, hope to see you feeling better tomorrow.

More proof that Roxie rarely knows me when Bill is home.I got up from my nap and this is what I found

These are on the blurry side but you can see their bright yellow at back of birds.When I had my feeders I would get tons of these for about a week.

I had 3 of these guys chasing each other all over the back yard

Hope you had a good day

  Hi Eleni.......
Roxy and Bill are like Tyke and Ken. I have often said that if anything ever happened to Ken, Tyke would be the dog that laid on the grave and died of heart-break. I know that Tyke loves me, but in the 9 years that we have had him, we both realize that Ken is the one he would follow to the ends of the earth.
Is the bird with the yellow on it a Finch? We have a winter storm warning for tomorrow and the birds that have flown back early because of our mild weather, are really confused. Then, next week it is supposed to be in the 50s. We have really been spoiled this winter and aren't complaining.
I am supposed to meet a former college roommate for breakfast tomorrow, but I am afraid that Mother Nature is going to end that plan.
Have a good evening.

    Roxie is definitely "man's" best friend. I know the feeling as Toby (our lab) lays on my Ashley's feet and beside his chair while he just lays about 10' away from me when he is gone. Where Ashley goes, Toby follows. He just tolerates me. lol Love the bird pictures too.

Leap year. I had forgot til Bill was telling me about one of his customer.The daughter said today her and her father are both 16.
Bill and I made a big mistake in supper. We had chinese delivered.It has probably been 3 or 4 years since we ate chinese.So very dumb. Now I can't get enough to drink I am so thirsty.Never again.
Just as I was about to blog last night I had drama with 2 of my girls to deal with. Once I had everyone calmed down I was exhausted. At least I had a few weeks with no drama.
Nothing new today.
Still keeping water intake down but it will be up tonight because of chinese.
Eating is not bad. Only ate half of supper.Rest is going in trash.Better there than in my stomach.
Poor Brianna lost her job and now has to find another.
Ok Nothing much happening.

    I love Chinese and just crave it from time to time! We go to the restaurant, eat it buffet style so I can watch what I eat. It IS loaded with sodium though and boy does my body ever swell after a Chinese meal!! Not worth it really!

Sorry about the drama with 2 of your girls, we sure don't need that kind of stuff, eh? And hope Brianna finds another job quickly.

Sweet photo of Abigail, she seems to be growing up quickly all of a sudden!
Hope today is a good one for you Eleni!

    i love chinese food too but haven,t had it for a few years.just because glen can,t take some spices and he has to watch chicken he can,t sometimes get it down his throat.i think it,s because of the spices.when we have mary browns chicken he has to be very careful.yes it is too bad about chinese food being over salted.sorry to hear about Brianna losing her job how terrible! i know she will find another one.hopefully very soon.take care and have a quiet day tomorrow. emoticon

  Hi Eleni........
I have had to completely avoid Chinese because of water retention. There is so much salt that even a half cup of whatever dish tends to make me miserable. Too bad, because I do love it.
I was looking at the picture of Abigail and either she is very tiny or the peas in her tray are huge. Did you notice that or am I losing what's left of my mind?
I am sorry to hear of Brianna losing her job. With summer coming, maybe there will be more available. I hope so for her sake.
Take care and remind those girls that they are supposed to leave YOU out of their drama. You do not need that stress.

    I love chinese, but wow the sodium is so outrageous I tend to avoid it now. Too bad. Even low sodium soy sauce is crazy.

Sorry about the family drama. Me and DH are quite low key but I do bring a lot of drama home from work.

    I LOVE Chinese! I'm looking for a new place. The one near work changed their ingredients and it's not so good anymore. I have yet to find a place near my house I like. I guess that's a good thing. You'll get back in track with your drinking in a day or so.

Poor Brianna. Jobs are so difficult to find. Sam has been looking for a job for months. She finally landed a summer job and will start working weekends in late April early May at Six Flags Great America. That's where I met Jason. emoticon

Abigail sure is growing fast. She looks much older than my Addi. I think it's the hair, since my Addi only has peach fuzz.

Not much on TV tonight.
Just had something sorta interesting. I like using a mandolin and I did buy a chopper on TV that turned out to be too big.Then I saw the slice o matic. So I ordered it and it came with an extra one. To make a long story short it came with one of locking tabs broke.I called tonight and while I was on phone Bill checked 2nd one.Same thing. To my surprise she said they would send new ones out right away.I asked if she would be sending me a shipping label to return these.She said keep the ones I have. Bill took good lock off one and put it on other one so I have one good one and they are sending me 2 more. They say they are sending some anyway.
I did horrible with food and water yesterday. I was so thirsty in the evening I had my highest ounces. But as Bill said a few minutes ago it was still less than what I was drinking.
Today has been good on both. So far. The night is still young.
Brianna and friends are at disney as they have birthdays together so the moms took them. Some of you know who Haven is.She is a friend of Angels little girl.
They seem to be having fun

And this is our grand daughter Alyssa with grandson Landon

Ok Thats it for now. Hope you had a good day.
Oh I did see some awesome before and after pics on facebook biggest loser

    Eleni, they'll send the two choppers alright, they never want an unsatisfied customer. How great that Bill was able to make one right by using a part from the other one! Now you'll have spare choppers.
I don't have a mandolin and not sure what that is.
Kudos to you for even keeping the water down, especially when you get so thirsty. It would be hard to do that on a daily basis.

Looks like the girls are having a good time in Disney. It's hard to believe Brianna is 19. They grow up too fast!!!

We have the Food Network on right now. If cartoons aren't on it's usually the news or Food Network lately. The Food Network makes me hungry though.

  Hi Eleni........
Little Haven is adorable. It looks like she really enjoyed DisneyWorld. I opened this while Elizabeth was here and showed the pictures to her. She and her folks were at Disneyland in California on February 17th and she even wore her Ariel costume when she met the Princess and had her picture taken with her. Is Haven around 3?
How did you like the Academy Awards? I really like Billy Crystal. Ken taped it, so I am going to watch some of the footage that I missed last night.
Must close for now. Have a great evening. The show, Smash is on at 9 on NBC. I like all of the singing and dancing.
