One of those days

Monday, August 24, 2009

It's just one of those frustrating days. Waited all morning for the shop to bring the Harley back since they are not open on Tuesday & Wednesday and DH will be home on Thursday. They finally brought it back this afternoon but I didn't get to the dump to take the stinky bag of garbage so it will still be sitting here when DH gets home. (the dump is ONLY OPEN SAT/SUN ALL DAY & FRI/MON 8AM-NOON and that is the ONLY way to get rid of garbage here)

The internet is so messed up and not working right today.

It's humid as all get out today.
I'd blame this on PMS but that isn't happening anymore.

I still have a bit of cleaning to do.

Just a lot of little things annoying me today. Good thing I'm going to the gym tonight and work it off.

Happy Ramadan!

Saturday, August 22, 2009

It is the start of the Holy month of Ramadan in the Muslim world. I am NOT muslim but I have lived in Saudi Arabia from October - May for the past 20+ years. For those who don't know about Ramadan, you can read about it here:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramadan

I have been going to the gym and I really like it! It is so much more fun with a buddy than doing it alone. I get on the treadmill, stationary bike and I use all kinds of machines. The other day we went for a swim in the pool and that was so refreshing! Woo Hoo!

5 more days until my husband comes home!

    I'm not Muslim and don't celebrate Ramadan. But, a few days of fasting might be just the ticket to jump start my weight loss! However, I vowed not to eat after 8:00 so can't do their plan. Do they have confession if they mess up during Ramadan? How is it you winter in Saudia Arabia? Sounds like an interesting life!

    Happy Ramadan to you as well!
Thank you for including the link that helps explain Ramadan. :)
I am not Muslin, but I have a friend who is.. and for some reason the beginning of this celebration/fast slipped my mind. - In North America, Ramadan begins on Saturday, 22 August 2009.

Enjoy your day!

I will hold you and your husband in my thoughts and prayers until you both are reunited. :)

A busy week ahead

Saturday, August 15, 2009

My 9 year old grandson is here with me for a week so hopefully it will stay nice so we can go to the beach.
My son's girlfriend and other grandson are coming up on Sunday for a couple days and we're going to a fun park on Monday so LOTS of walking! I have a dr. appt on Tuesday and I'm taking them back home on Tuesday. A diabetes class on Wednesday afternoon and hopefully we can get to the gym after that.
Saturday my good friend from Canada is coming down to visit overnight
Then the clean up begins for when DH gets home!
A busy week ahead but filled with fun so I hope I can keep on track with eating.

Strong Meteor Shower Expected Tonight

Tuesday, August 11, 2009

I am going to try and stay up until at least midnight but I will have to drive to the beach to see it, there are too many trees around my house.

    Thanks for telling me about it Robin. I may not be able to stay up that late. I get up at 6 in the morning. It also may not reach over here in Missouri. I'll look before I go to bed. Thanks

A slow Sunday

Sunday, August 09, 2009

It has been a slow day but active. Doing laundry, re organizing the downstairs bedroom for guests, re organizing my bedroom. I assembled a new computer chair last night so I will give my DH a choice when he comes home of the new chair or my old chair.

I am very proud of myself for going to the gym every day last week and I will keep up the good work this week!

17 more days until my DH gets home! I can't wait!

    Robin you astound me. The things you do and yet I know how hard it is for you to lose that last 10 lbs. Did you do it? As hard as you work you should have. Although maybe its not meant to be. Maybe its all muscle and that you're supposed to keep. How do your clothes fit? Like they should? Keep up the good work. Muscles are better than fat.
