Whining down Wednesday

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

Morning was slow-think Monday's exercise activities caught up to me!! From the massage and chiropractor appt the day was all good..Classes went well and Zumba class was fun.

I got home, started dinner, and sat in cat barf-ugh!! Ok, that wasn't so great but it washed out of the couch and my pants!!(DOGMOMMY, you know what I am talking about!!)

While dinner was slow cooking, I did a Leslie three mile walk and then watched Undercovers with dh. Dinner was late but it was homemade and tasty.(following your advice, NORASPAT!!)

Now I am finishing Sparking while watching my third episode of Bones-i love that show!!

Lila, tell your boys to think 10 fingers, 10 toes when they need a visual. TEAM-ERIC, those math skills of yours were rocking. I am scared of you!!

SUNNY332, you always have something nice to say! If you didn't exist, we would have had to invent you!! That goes for you too SHARMAE!! emoticon

    I agree, I want to know what was for supper too.... We've been thinking of getting a pet too, but we've been petless for so long now - well except for when we babysit someone elses' dog or cat - that it seems like such a hassle. Don't know if dd is going to suggest we take Lucy (her pug chihuahua) again or not with the new baby coming. We'll see... I wish we had been there though and taken Diesel - he was a beautiful cat.... so calm and affectionate and fixed!!! and very pretty, looked like a silver tabby but was actually some special breed according to the vet. But they still get sick and have accidents and have litter boxes..... the ugh stuff!!

There was actually a news blurb on tonite where the guy was showing how he taught his cat to use the real toilet..... I might be bribed i f I was offered a cat that came without litterboxes!!!

Well, you relax and take care of yourself - Have a great weekend!

    You and Nora are spoiling me....thanks for your kind words.

Today, I get my brows waxed (I am looking a little fuzzy). Hope my beautian has a miracle left for me this morning.

Take care and have a Terrific Thursday. BTW - curiosity has got me. What did you make for dinner?

Hugs to you, my friend.

    I hope you and DH shared winding down time. I have to call it bonding time. We both spend too much time on the computers,
one is upstairs

and one is down.

We walk together, eat together but we should be e-mailing more often. LOL
We do visit more friends these days. I have actually noticed visiting and having guests keeps the house so well picked up. Doubles the fun and halves the housework. WOO Hoo Pat in Maine. HUGS and Hugs for STEVE too.
I am with you on SUNNY32 she lights up my page. !

I tutored 12 people today, sometimes three at a time....Boy, is there any math left in my brain???!!! Still, it was fun and interesting. It is nice helping people to understand material that they didn't realize they could master. One student got a 95 on a test last week-woo hoo!!!

The Internet at the college is down so I can't upload my midterm grades but they sent out messages so we knew that we had an extension. Otherwise, I would have stayed up late to put them in before midnight.

I did my one mile walk with Leslie this morning and I still want to do some weight training so I guess better say "Good NIght!!

    I wish you could come help with my Gr. 2 boys... I taught them "make 10 strategy" and then "doubles" today and they excitedly said they got it and went to their desks, but when I checked - no one got it....so re-teach tomorrow......

I saw your status where you asked, Can anyone be too busy?" - I think the answer is, are your enjoying it? are you having time for family and friends? and is it still fun? Guess if you get a YES to all of the above, it can't be too busy yet.... (but don't push it!!!)

    Ok I think I got this one. 12 people tutored "sometimes" 3 at a time. So that means at least 4 sessions. If you had one group of 3 and the other (12-3=9)were singles that would be a total of 10 sessions. So the answer is 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10 sessions!

I had a Math teacher in 8th grade that was in her words, not trying to win any popularity contests, but you know we learned Math and now over 40 years later, we remember things and know she is the one who taught us that. So you know...in the long run she did win the popularity contest! I think you always remember who helped you "get it"! YOU are one who will be remembered by many!

Cold day, colder night....

Monday, November 01, 2010

it was a good day-did two Zumba classes and a 3 mile walk with Leslie. Food intake good if you excuse the three mini kitkats. I did avoid cookies so there was some progress.

That is my goal for the month. No cookies and extra cardio each day. Keeps it simple and hopefully possible.

Best thing ever-Team-Eric is back and I was so happy. It made my day. Check out her first day blog! It's a hoot.

Majorly cold here and my cat is calling me to the couch. Yes, that couch.

Sleep warm and well everyone!

This is Elmo kitty!!

    OMG! I made your blog! How is that??? TWO Zumba classes and a 3 mile walk! Those Kit-Kats calories don't stand a chance of being in your body long enough to do any damage! You go girl!

    Hi Elmo kitty! Thanks for slowing Terri down and encouraging her to relax!!!

Cold..... we won't go there, eh? As long as there's no white stuff, guess it's not as cold as here.... there goes the furnace again... well, I am thinking (seriously) of doing some exercise, so better get to it, before i change my mind..... emoticon

I don't feel all accomplished today-skipped two Zumba fundraisers that I would normally have gone to but I have decided that my KNEES want to REST!! Turns out that the rest of me likes taking it easy too!

Woo hoo!! I am ready for tomorrow two Zumba classes and the two math classes that I teach. Look out world-I am RESTED!!

Hope everyone enjoyed their Sunday! emoticon

Hey, it does a body good-woo hoo!!

After a rough night of sleep(Elmo kitty decided that I needed grooming since i fell asleep on Mr. Couch), I decided to have an easier day.

I visited with friends, went walking at the high school(and was lucky enough to visit with a lot of former students and teacher friends), delivered flowers for a special friend's birthday, and ended the day eating soup with good friends.

It was such a good day that even my knees feel pretty good!! Tomorrow, a Zumba master class and then time with dh!! Sounds good to me!! emoticon

    Best times of all, spending time with DH.
My DH was a very keen cyclist in his youth, now they are giving hime a lot of pain. Take care of those knees, treat them gently if they complain. Must catch up!.
