I am too impatient

Sunday, August 22, 2010

I have been having a really hard time posting on Spark People today. It has been so SLOW and it drives me batty. None of the other sites I go to are this slow so I am thing it is just SP. There is so much time between pages and as you know, you go back and forth to lots of pages. It has been like this for about a week but today was really bad. I know my daughter said hers is slow too. Does anyone know what could be the problem? Is anyone else having a problem. I know I am a little impatient ( emoticon), actually a lot when it comes to doing stuff on the computer, but this is really bad. Hopefully, whatever it is will be remedied soon.

    I agree. I'm not sure the cause, but the SP site tends to be a bit slow loading. I am not patient about that either. I think SP has some technical issues they need to address. I guess they've been too successful with their site!

    Today has been nice and fast, but I have had the slowness for the last week or so too. Hopefully it's back to normal this week.

    I sometimes have this problem, but not a lot. Not sure what causes it.

Also, thanks for writing in on my blog yesterday--yes, I love the swimming! Take care, and good luck in your journey!

  I think that there are certain times that the site is overwhelmed with Sparkers and it will freeze. It's not your computer it's SP.

    I was trying to blog today and it froze. Guess the computer is trying to tell us to get out and enjoy the sunshine! Anyway, here's hoping everything improves! emoticon

    Same here I acutally froze my computer up trying to access the spell check.. I guess its a good thing that its not just my computer but I'm sorry yours is going slow too.. I have to refresh every page I go to... sometimes I go to the same page twice and I know I left a comment the first time.. so I have to refresh it to see if my comment left is still there. Its so frustrating.. I hope they can fix all the glitches.. but by far this is the best site for our needs.. so a little patience is in order for now.... I hope it gets better for you soon...

    I have this problem alot, and I too am very inpatient, and you should hear my potty mouth when it happens, Luckily today it is working well for me, I think you usually just have to ride it through, I have been told in the past that they are doing updates and things when that happens, don't know if it is true or not.

Happy Weekend Ruby Lites

Saturday, August 21, 2010

Hey Ruby Lites........How are all of you doing today. The weekend is here...what are you doing special. My honey and I are going to the marina for a picnic lunch today. The weather isn't quite as hot as the previous days. When I walked this a.m. I wasn't wondering if I was going to make it. Not quite so humid today. I walked 4.10 miles this morning. Try to get out and do a little something today even if it is only a walk down the block. You will feel so much better. I hope all of you will have a great weekend and remember to make wise choices and eat healthy.

    Good morning Nancy and thanks for posting your 4.10 mile walk already today. My 30 minute walk on the treadmill seems pale next to that LOL. Enjoy your picnic lunch with your hubby today. You should have a fun time. Hope it doesn't rain or get to hot. emoticon

PAT challenge

Friday, August 20, 2010

I have been a Ruby-Lite for almost a year now, but only active on the site since April. The PAT challenge is short for Pound-A-Thon. We are on teams of about 15 members and we made a pledge at the beginning of weight we were going to pledge during the challenge. I am maintaining but I still enjoy reading the messages and participating in the different daily challenges. Our team is the Hacky Honeys and the ladies I have met are certainly "honeys" (so sweet). This team has members that really participate and support each other. We chat quite a bit on the team thread and also send messages to individuals pages. This challenge is helping me maintain because it makes me ACCOUNTABLE. I really need that. When we finish this challenge if a pledge isn't met, that is okay because we know we tried and we can always START a new day if we slide a little backwards (we all do that sometimes). We just have to MOVE FORWARD and make it happen.

    Love your blog and it is encouraging to know that once we reach our goals, it will be possible to maintain as we never have in the past.

2 more Things decided

Thursday, August 19, 2010

Today we decided on cabinet color for the kitchen in our new home. Yesterday, we decided on the appliances. This has really been a tough decision because I don't like appliances that are white, black or stainless. I know 90% of sales are for stainless steel. It is just not for me. I don't like black because it shows every little speck of dust and fingerprints. We decided on the GE profile because it has stainless and black both on the appliance. It is pretty equal in each amount. At least it is broken up so it is not ALL stainless or ALL black. I do believe I will like that just fine. We did choose the Electrolux French Door refrigerator. We looked at the other Electrolux appliances but didn't get a price on them. I think I won't get a price on them because they are all stainless with no black....BUT the quality of them looks so well made. We have always been G.E. people and I guess that is where we are going again. This is our decision as of today. emoticon. There are just too many things to pick from.

    Sometimes, choices are hard, aren't they? I'm glad you didn't choose All Black...In February we got a new stove & fridge (All Black) they show everything emoticon

    I'm so glad you found something that will work for you. It always seems like there are so many decisions to make even just in selecting an appliance (color, style, size, manufacturer, price, etc.) It can get too much too quickly.

Sitting again

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

This evening I will be toddler sitting for the little 1 1/2 yr old girl in my neighborhood. I just love sitting with her. We cook, play ring around the rosies, sing and dance a lot. Children sure can make you feel young again (or make you feel really old). She is such a sweet little girl. I have watched her since she was 3 weeks old. She had colic and cried all of the time. I would just hold her, rock or or walk with her. The first time I watched her, she didn't cry 20 minutes out of 2 hours...and it was not 20 minutes at one time. It was pretty tough for her mom and that was time she could have a little break when I was there. NOW it is so different. She is a sweet little toddler and a pleasure to watch.....

    Sorry I missed your call. I guess you're just leaving there but in case not I'm certainly not calling you at midnight! I bet you'll sleep well tonight! How was your evening with her?
