PPH volunteer night

Friday, March 19, 2010

Had a great turn out tonight with close to 15 people. We got a lot of packages done for the junior high students. Did a gift basket with one of the other volunteer a young lady named Joanne, very sweet person. Did my 2 walks with Phred today, my ankle was little sore from the long walk yesterday. Did an hour of house work. Talked this morning to both of sisters. One is on this site, but hasn't done anything because she has been busy going to college online and found out it wasn't for her after she signed up and took out student loans.
She spends bwt 6-8 hrs a day just doing classes. Way too much time on the PC if you ask me.

Great walk today but hot

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

Took a nice 9 + mile walk with Irene this morning along the Santa Ana river walkway. Was a nice cool breeze when we started but by the end of walk back at the car it was 93 degrees. Couldn't wait to get home to the AC. Waiting until 4:30pm b/4 walking the Phredster but by that time the afternoon had picked up so walk pretty nice.
Jeff decided he was gonna take me to Chilli Peppers tonight. I knew I should have stuck to the chicken taco's but I had to have the special., crab flaunta, coconut shrimp, black bean refried beans, spanish rice, sm.beef totasta (appetizer) and sm.apple/cinamon totasta (desert). Wow I tried to estimate the calories and it was close to 1600 I only had water and no drinks but still. Well once in a while you have to break out of your shell. It was the Jalapeno Soup that did me in, I shared some with my son. He was so suprised at how good it was. Yummy! But the calories will kill ya! lol emoticon emoticon

    Yum except for the shrimp & crab! I love flautas and all the other fattening TexMex food.

    It's good that you're not beating yourself up too hard for slipping. Once in awhile is ok so long as it doesn't become a habit. Now and then I'm in a situation where I'll just resign myself to damage control and try not to worry about it. It happens.

It's getting hot out here too, thought our comparative temperatures make me sound like a whiner. (Yours are running about twenty degrees higher than ours.) Still, no doubt, spring is in the air. I need to start getting out earlier in the morning.

Nine miles? Wow, that's great! You ARE a warrior woman!

Lucies ashes

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

Jeff and I picked up Lucies ashes this afternoon. The box is much nicer than I thought it would be and now we are not sure we want to bury it. It put it on top of the fireplace mantle, it is a very hard white plastic with a gold plack that says "My BeLoved Pet" in nice scrip along with a certificate of guarantee that my piet has been cremated privately by the Only Cremations company. There was a very nice poem on the back of the certificate and I only got about half way through it and I started to cry. I had my husband finish reading it for me. I can not believe it has only been one week. Anyway here is the poem:

I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of
quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the stars that shine at night.
Please stand not at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.

We send our condolences for the loss of your beloved companion.

I still get teary everytime I read this because Lucy truely was my beloved companion.

Waking up too early

Monday, March 15, 2010

Since Sunday morning I have been getting woke up by my alarm at what I thought was 7:30am. It was so dark but I thought with the time change maybe thats how light it was at that time. I had forgotten that my clock was set for 6:30am instead of my normal 7:30am. So silly of me not to check. I had been bugging my son Frank to make sure his clocks were correct so he wouldn't be late for his college classes and here I was the one who hadn't done my clock correctly. lol Dud OH emoticon

    Aw man, I hate when that happens! emoticon

That's just the sort of thing I would do...Tell everyone else to update their clocks, then forget my own. Hope it didn't inconvenience you too much.

My body is still adjusting. I've gotten on a good eight hours a night regular bedtime streak, but overslept this morning. I hope I'm not lying awake tonight.

Congrats on your 25 pound loss.

Blockbuster rentals

Sunday, March 14, 2010

My husband and I went to rent movies today at our local B and after renting them did the clerk tell me that today was the last day they would be renting movies. What is the store closing, I asked him? No we will be here until maybe Oct but only for buying dvd's. We don't have cable or satellite or netflix, you get the picture we are going to maybe go ahead and get netflix for $9 a month. This really kills me because now if I want to rent something I can't just go and do it. I have to have someplace pick from my list and mail it to me. Yeah $9 is cheaper than renting 3 movies like we did today but convenience of having the store within walking distant from the house was real nice. Sort of bummed.
We only have 1 credit card for emergencies and vacations but will have to use just to get movies. My husband is pissed off. One reason we don't have cable, ect is because he doesn't like paying for anything he or we can get for free.
