Just Curious. . . .

Good Monday Sparkfam! What a wonderful Monday morning, it rained earlier & we didn't the humidity I thought we would. Tomorrow is another day. So I didn't do much over my week I donated a few hours to my job. I don't mind cause they always give us perks, like every other Friday off in the summer with pay. So how can I come in with anything but a smile on my face. lol

Well, yesterday I made a huge breakfast & I bought him a nice funny card, he loves those & a bottle of amaretto. The kids got him a nice eddy bauer shirt & a grilling set from eddy bauer. Well, he wanted to know if there was going to be more? Now, I don't want to sound like these days have to be totally out of control but have they? Just curious here in Chicago. If my kids bought me something, I would give them the extra monies if they needed. I keep my gifts under $40 cause I just like them fussing over me. They do an excellent job. In these times I can't expect them to go over that amount & still be able to make it through the week. So I wanted to put it to the most brilliant minds around my Sparkfamily! lol

Today, I walked some, will do kick boxing & legs & glutes tonight as I watch my tv programs. What about you? Are you being health or working towards it. Did well with my food today raisin bran 1%milk, banana, sm slice of pizza & a huge salad. Learning to love the lettuce without much dressing. lol Having grilled chicken & corn on the cobb for dinner with chocolate milk & orange juice.

God bless Sparkfam!!

Off & running!

    I don't celebrate Father's day so I don't look forward to gifts and stuff like that. I am glad you all had a good time though!! emoticon emoticon

    Happy Tuesday Dee!
    Glad you had a great weekend. I tell my son just by me a card. He likes to take me out to eat & that's not what I normally want to do. Give me the money. lol But I'm simple & I love being the giver. But I do fuss at both of my children who can't go to the Dollar store & buy me a .50 cent card or my dtr is an artist...make me one. lol I'm serious though. I always gave cards to my Mother no matter what. But I had a good Monday and worked out with all I planned. I start tracking it so I have to do it because I don't like having to take it off. You are doing great. I'm proud of you. Thanks for your encouragement!

    That's funny because I spent some time today with a friend who is a dad with grown children and he was very ungrateful for his gifts as well. His daughter got him a 30 cake, which is his favorite, and he wouldn't eat it! Something going around in the air?

    I think people need to be more grateful for what they have - and that it is more about the thought than material things and spending time with family. I think what everyone got him was wonderful.

    Yes today I am being healthy - exercised, bought healthy food, eating healthy food. Have fun exercising watching your shows!

    Is this "he" your husband, boyfriend, or dad? Either way, I would be a little upset if he asked for more after receiving those nice presents & that generous breakfast. I think limiting spending on family gifts is just necessary for financial health. My two cents!

    It IS a beautiful day in Chicago! You are eating right & taking good care of yourself. emoticon

    Your Baby sounds like my that all there is? I tell them to say, "Thank you, I'm satisfied." We practice saying it three times!
