A visit from family.

Sunday, October 07, 2012

My mother and step-father drove 500 miles from Syracuse NY to Columbus, Oh. They arrived on Friday at 2:00pm and left here at 6:20 am today (Sunday). They were here less than 48 hours. Well, the old folks wore me out. They wanted to go here, there and everywhere. I'm not used to being on the move that much. Well, they are safely home now and I can rest. emoticon

    Love it - sorry - that's what we do to our kids - we arrive and then "Let's Go". My son-in-law probably hated to see us come. LOL

glad they were able to visit - it's always special, isn't it? :)

I always liked to have company come over, but you are right they tire you out. It is always nice when they leave. Then you you get to rest and get on track.

Way to start the month.

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

I had my first October weigh in this morning. I was so happy to have lost 3 pounds. I think because the weather has gotten cooler and it's less of an effort to get moving, that I have benefitted. I love raking leaves (no, I'm not coming over to do yours) and with the grass growing faster, I get to mow more often too. I love fall. emoticon

    WTG on your pounds lost!! It is a nice time of year when Fall arrives. I will be getting out this weekend to prep our fall garden, too. It is enjoyable and burns good calories...lol.

Thank you for leaving supportive words on my Oct 1st Blog. Take care and keep moving that body.

    I like fall too. It is much more subtle here than in other parts of the USA. But the temperatures are not as high though the thermometer in my van says they go up to the 90s--hard to believe. I don't mind getting out and moving as much.

You are not the only one.

Sunday, September 30, 2012

Last night when I tried to log on to Spark People, I could not access the site no matter how I tried to go in. After reading several message board entries this morning I found out I was not the only one. So if after last night, you felt like putting your fist through the computer screen but were able to refrain, you should be good this morning.

    Yep, i had issues, too. I was using the app at first, and thought the last iOS update broke the thing, but thankfully not so!

I'm usually shy.

Thursday, September 27, 2012

Today I performed with my Zumba instructor at a festival for seniors. There were about 200 people there. Guests were invited to join us. About 30-40 people got up and joined the fun. People too old to get up were grooving in their seats and the food staff and organizers were all moving to the music too. I am usually shy and would have never volunteered to something like that is the past. We were told by the DJ that are performance was by far the one with the most participation. I have become more confident since joining SP and I love it. emoticon

    It must have been a kind of high to entertain those seniors with Zumba! I bet the event was a lift to that whole community including the employees. I'm glad you got to perform! Speaking as a former theater nerd, I know the good feeling a performance gives.
