Jeff went back to work today and he will be working everyday for almost a month. The last 3 days we have been working hard around the house unloading the cabinets, placing them in the spots there will be going. The guys almost got the sub-floor down for the hardwood can be put down. The cabinets are beautiful and all look fantastic. I got pull our drawers on the lower cabinets, soft close drawers and doors (after Jeff installs them on the doors, all the drawers came pre-installed.
Anyways with so much going on the few days, I decided I would start full steam this morning, again. Of course I would have loved to go to the gym today but it was pouring rain, along with it be just around 50 degrees. Pretty darn cold for S.CA. I did a 5 miles Leslie Sansone walk, then the rain finally stopped for a while and I went to the market for a number of items we needed.
After I got back from the store, the boys (Frank & Jory) went bowling with me. They are both improving a lot. Jory had some great games over the 150 mark a couple of times. We all had our bad games too, but for once I didn't kick their asses and they even beat me a few rounds.
I hope to upload some pictures soon. I post almost all them on my FB account and I know a few of you are added to my friends list. I will be doing a short blog with pictures on here within the next day or two. I hope this month works out the way I wish for and I can get back into my groove on exercise and dieting.

Our weather has cooled off a lot, running in the mid 60's but very sunny. I took Phred for a almost 60 min. walk. We use to do that everyday but got out of the habit, so I have been slowly increasing our time. He was very tired when we got home. The guys did some more work around the house, sanding and stuff. After they were done I dusted the house and vacuumed. Took 90 mins. but the dust is still settling, so it seemed that the dust was back as soon as I was done.
We will be having a job slow down on the home construction again. Jeff got called into work about 10 days early. He will be working straight for a couple of weeks, then head up to central CA (Tulare) for a couple of weeks. This is the largest agricultural fair in the world. He likes the food and something brings home some good stuff like fresh fruit & vegetables. Eventually the house will be completed. He hopes to have the sub floor in by the weekend and maybe some of the cabinets. One can only hope.
I didn't get to bowl yesterday, but am hoping to get some in on Sunday morning, if not tomorrow. We will see how it goes. Doing good on keeping within my calorie range and getting in my exercise mins. Getting my water in, which is very important for my kidneys and the new medication I am on.

Got a call from my friend Precilla to come and bowl with her, her friend Michelle and the kids on Sunday morning. The kids bowled 1 game, P and I bowled 2 and after they left I bowled another 4 games. I did just awful when the kids were there. I am always worried about them running up or behind me when they have the lane next to us. After the P and the gang left my games improved.
After I got home and was eating lunch I realized I had received a call on my cell from a number I didn't recognize. Just recently my cousin Paul had found me on FB and we got in touch with each other. He said he hoped to come down from the San Fernando Valley to visit with us sometime. He wanted to come down and take the family out to dinner. The boys are too busy working on the house to go out (according to my DH) and encouraged me to go with my cousin.
Paul and I went to Polly's, which I knew he would love. Polly's makes all food from scratch and the pies are to die for. He wanted Rhubarb and was thrilled to see it on the pie menu. The joke when we were kids, was when I came to visit they had to hide the Rhubarb out in the garden or I would pick all of it and eat it raw. lol I had a nice dinner (salmon, rice and cream spinach with corn bread) but couldn't resist having a piece of pie. Should have had Rhubarb with Paul but I wanted to try the Pumpkin cheese cake. Unfortunately, they were out after I ordered but they still have chocolate cream. I didn't eat all of it, just most. lol
Yesterday was just one of those days that I didn't seem to get anything done, but did a lot. Laundry, changed sheets on beds, towels in bathroom. Would start something and then jump to something else. Got a lot of nothing done. lol Didn't remember to weigh my food in the morning or at lunch, sort of blew the day away. It showed in my weigh in this morning because I gained back 1 pound of the 4 I lost last week.
Went bowling today on league. My avg. right now is 117 and for the first time I exceeding my avg. on every game. 127, 139 & 124 not fantastic games but I had a 390 pin count for 3 games, which avg. out to 130 a game. I hope to break 400 soon. So all my practicing is paying off for me.
Ok that's about it for now. Hope you all have a great last couple of days too.!

River walk today was 7.25 miles round trip. It was in the mid 50's when we started and the sun was under a dark cloud cover. It warmed up a bit after the first hour but still cool. After the walk my friend Irene and I went over to IHOP for breakfast.
Came home, showered and watch "Misery" that my son Jory had loaned to our other son Frank. It had been many years since I saw this movie. Then took Phred for a walk. Made dinner and then I started watching a lot of the shows that I had been dvr'd this past week. I still have 2 more to see. Thats about it folk. Hope you all have a great Sunday!
