Last showing of OLTL", Friday the 13th, and chore I had been putting off.

Friday, January 13, 2012

Decided to go through the closet in the kitchen. I have been putting this off for a while because it has been a while since I have cleaned it out. lol I keep my cookbooks in there, along with plastic plates, knifes, spoons, forks, etc. paper goods, a lot of gift boxes and somewhere in the back was my steamer that I couldn't get too. I also have been putting recipes in there for a while. They had gather into a large pile in the bottom of the closet. There is a lot of stuff in there but I think you all get the idea.
I threw a bunch of stuff away. I even found a cheap set of silverware, (that I didn't even know I had) and never remember ever seeing b/4. They were pretty with blue handles but not made well. The will go to charity. I was glad to get all the stuff out of there. I have so many cookbooks too and now a whole box of recipes I have gotten from various places that fit into a shoebox. lol

Did some cleaning up , walked Phred and then watched "One Life to LIve". Do you think the powers that be at ABC decided on Friday the 13th on purpose?? Seems just a bit planned to me. Was glad to hear that some characters will be showing up in Port Charles on GH. They did an infusion of new characters right about now, like a hole in the head. We shall see how it all works out??

Going to bed a bit early tonight. Have a river walk with Irene in the morning. Our weather is cooling off and they expect some rain, maybe, by Sunday. Hope you all drink your water today??

    Glad you got the closet cleaned out, emoticon

I really can't discuss the soap with you though, as being a working girl, I never get to see them! I know a lot of people are upset that particular one is being taken off the air! Sorry, but maybe you have another favorite?

Hope you had a great walk this morning! emoticon emoticon

    I think it was genius how they sent John, Blair, Todd and Star to GH. I think that show needs some help and hope they will help it! I will really miss it, but this kind of helped me get over the loss a bit!
I need to get started on my spring cleaning! Good for you! And for going on a walk! I love Walking!!!!

Like you, I watched the last episode of OLTL. It will be interesting to see how the OLTL characters get written into GH.

Took the car over to our transmission guy.

Thursday, January 12, 2012

Jeff has been noticing for the last couple of weeks that my car (1981 Corvette) was dripping a little transmission fluid. He asked me stop by Roys Transmission in Fullerton on the way home from bowling on Tuesday, for the owner Frank to take a look at. He was supper busy and asked me to bring by this morning. I dropped it off and walked home. Jeff and Frank @ Roys were both surprised that I would walk home. It is not that far from home and turned out to be 2.12 miles on my pedometer and took me 37 min with about 5 signals. I do that long of a walk most days with Phred. I thought about taking him with me, but he is awful in the car and get so nervous on busy streets that I thought I would be able to do it faster myself. I was breaking a small sweat when I got home. It was a warm day and I was glad I brought along a hat to wear.

Got home and starting dusting when Jeff asked me to make lunch for the 3 of them (Jeff, Frank & Jory). Jory came home again to help out with the house.
Finish dusting and it was time for "One Life to Live" to come on. Only one more day and this soap that I have been on and off watching since 1968 will be gone. Sort of sad for me, I think I will miss this one more that "All My Children". So sad for all us soap fans.

Did the vacuuming and then took Phred for a walk. Took a early shower so I could wash and dry my hair. Made sloppy Joes for the men and I had a Lean Cuisine dinner, we all had salad.

Still have no idea what , if anything is wrong with the car. Most likely because Frank@Roys has been so busy lately he may have the car a few days.

    Certainly hope your car is okay. They are sometimes a little expensive to keep them going but one likes them too much to let them go:)

I have never be one to watch soaps so i won't miss them at all but I know many people that watch and will have to go through withdrawal!! LOL

I think I put in 2 miles today! Need to get a pedometer and stop "guestimating" my foot steps. I know I am 350 steps from our post box and 375 from the pool which is on the south end of the hall where many of the activities take place here in the resort.

    Hope the car isn't a huge price hit for you :( Well done walking it home! Oh boy, sloppy joes! I haven't had those since I was a kid, men are so lucky, they can eat anything!!!
Sorry you are losing your favorite soap, hope you find something interesting to replace it. I always wondered how they could make those shows last for so long with the actors growing old, etc..
Have a fantastic Friday!!

Got up late and have to get all the laundry together to wash clothes. Went through my coupons, wrote grocery list, went to market. Came home put all the stuff away, ate lunch. Time to go to practice at bowling alley. Should have stayed home. Had a horrible performance today. lol Came home, did more laundry, folded clothes and walked the dog. Then cooked dinner. Very normal boring day.

Boring and normal is good sometimes!

Lost 4 pounds this week, super happy.

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

Well my weigh in was great this morning and I couldn't have been happier or more surprised. When I first started doing the plan w/Sparks I lost 5 pounds the first week and then it was 2-3 after that. I don't expect those kind of results since I am not pushing myself as much this time, but I do hope 1 pound minimum a week. Happy Happy
Did Ok bowling. First game was a 139, 2nd game I couldn't get my spares. I would leave 2 pins and get one of them on the second throw or leave 1 pin and just blow the ball past the pin w/o knocking it down, my score 94. 3rd game improved again and I got 140. Bowling again tomorrow during free practice time. I am improving and very happy about that. Just want more consistency.
Thanks to everyone who wish my daughter Samra a very Happy 27th Birthday!

27 years ago I gave birth to my daughter, Samra.

Monday, January 09, 2012

Today is my lovely daughter Samra's 27 birthday. She is a great kid and I have always been proud of her. I purchased a notebook/laptop for her birthday. She needed one that had Micro Soft Office on it. While looking I learned very few computers come with this program pre-installed. I found this one at Staples, contacted her boyfriend to see if it would work for her. A day and a half later, I went back to Staples to find all of them were sold out at our local store. I ended up calling about 15 Staples in the north OC/south LA county areas. I finally found a floor model and was able to buy that at a discount. They cleaned it and completely reinstalled everything to make it like it just came from the factory.

A little mad at myself because I went 3 calories over my max today. I have managed to stay on the lower end all week. Oh win some, lose some, at least I hope so. I should do my weight in tomorrow. I will be happy if I lose just a pound or two, three would be nice but I don't want to get too excited. Just taking it easy and if I only lose 1 pound a week, that is 52 pounds in a year! It would put me below my goal of 135-140#. Don't want to look too skinny at my age.

Bowling tomorrow on league. I hope I do well.

    Happy, happy birthday to Samra! That is an awesome gift, way to go the extra mile!
Please do not obsess over a few calories, particularly when you have been riding the lower end -that is a fantastic streak! Bet you will be pleased with the scale results!
Good luck with bowling, enjoy!!

    Hi Teri and a Happy Birthday to your daughter. What a neat thing you did for her. As far as getting mad at yourself, think of it this way, you were under during the week and we should be looking at the entire week, averaging it out for a calorie base and I bet you did it!! Don't beat yourself up:) You are on the right tack and are doing fabulous!! Keep it going!!!

    Happy birthday to Samra! I wouldn't worry too much about 3 calories over on one day! Just hang in there tomorrow, and eat your lower limit if you are worried......Good luck at the weigh in! emoticon

    Happy Birthday to Samra! I bet she will love the laptop you got for her. You are doing a good job with your plan, try not to worry so much about the scale, we all have our fluctuations at times. It's the long run for your health that counts!
