We have gotten very involved in both the gun club and the ham radio clubs. Winter will never end here in Minnesota it seems. it even snowed here around an inch yesterday. <BR> <BR> Still hanging in there around 185-188 goes up and goes down. We haven;t been walking much- just too cold and windy most days. <BR> <BR> Will stop in every so often to post. Didn't mean for it to go so long, but life just got ... Tue, 25 Mar 2014 21:07:42 EST Stopping in to say Hi and prove I still am around. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5589713 Been a very busy month in December and up to now. Gun club renewals are complete! I processed 700 memberships and 63 new member applications. We had 102 members that did not renew, but are only adding 44 new members this time around to bring our paying members numbers back down to 675. Believe me that was a lot of paper shuffling, computer data entry and tracking of dues money and verifying members information. And all this was done each evening for the past 4 months or so. So... Fri, 10 Jan 2014 22:44:57 EST Merry Christmas! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5571337 Wow- has it been Thanksgiving since I was on SP and posted a blog? Time is going by so fast. Here is it already Christmas and Thanksgiving seems like it was just a few days ago. Jim and i are doing well, maybe too well with the eating, but seems all our groups and clubs are having holiday meetings or dinners. I am buried at work and at home with club renewals, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. <BR> <BR> It has been really cold here or snowing. Either way lots of whi... Tue, 24 Dec 2013 22:27:26 EST Happy Thanksgiving! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5552404 Happy Thanksgiving to all my SP friends and family. Had a great day with hubby and a wonderful meal. Been very busy with club renewals and work. My new store is not only the biggest store in the company, but the busiest. <BR> <BR> Hope all have a great Holiday season. Am holding steady with my weight at 185. Up a pound, then down a pound, but still stuck there. Cold and chilly here, but was sunny today so was outside doing some yard work to pick up leaves in the morning. ... Thu, 28 Nov 2013 20:09:52 EST Still around http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5540583 Still here, and thank you to DR1939 for missing me and wondering how I was doing. Been super busy with club renewals eating up my evenings and meetings for Radio club stuff. Gun Club meeting next week, and just life in general. <BR> <BR> We did yard work and got ready for winter over the weekend so both hubby and I were beat. And of course the leaves are still falling. <BR> <BR> Will pop in every so often, just right now is a busy time for me and killing myself for points is not ... Wed, 13 Nov 2013 22:36:31 EST Still nice for a Fall day in MN http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5525932 Today was nice and sunny, not quite as warm as Sunday, but still nice. Went for a walk in a local woods with paths. Great colors. <BR> <BR> Good day at work, ate good, got in a walk. So far so good. <BR> <BR> Going to watch Sleepy Hollow on TV soon. Got hooked on it, sounded good and it is. <BR> <BR> Mon, 28 Oct 2013 20:34:59 EST Perfect Fall day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5525007 Just a nice Fall day here in Mn today. 60's and sunny and Fall color. Did get in a nice walk around the neighborhood. Jim was on the radio most of the weekend with a DX contest going on. I took advantage of the sun and took a bunch of photos for horses to put up on ebay the next few weeks. <BR> <BR> Watching Eragon DVD now and then off to bed. Was just a nice relaxing day. Sun, 27 Oct 2013 22:07:42 EST Good Chilly Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5520791 Just a nice gray and chilly fall day here in MN. Work was super, did some grocery shopping on the way out. This week is employee appreciation week and today was 15% off all employee purchases. Plus I had an extra 10% off employee discount card so it was worth it. Have a nice roast for the crock pit on Wednesday. <BR> <BR> After dinner went to the radio shop and we bought an automatic tuner for the ham radio. Then home and a quick walk. Got out a warmer coat- there was a subtle chi... Tue, 22 Oct 2013 22:21:26 EST Back to work- still cold, wet and gray http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5518787 The High School reunion was fun, but back to reality today with work. Both Jim and I felt the reunion was more about visiting the old school and school memories, than actually getting a chance to see classmates. There were so many people there from all classes it was hard to find faces we could recognize. Our classes were some of the largest in the state at the time in the 60's and 70's. I didn't even know all the people in my class when I was in school. My class was close to 1000 ... Sun, 20 Oct 2013 20:31:06 EST More High School Reunion today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5518145 Jim and I were back at the reunion activities today around 11 am. There was a program that ran for several hours of speakers and photos and history of the school. We also walked around the halls some more. We both attended this High School, only a year apart so we had memories of the school and friends that we did see. Because the reunion encompassed all classes, from 1936 to 1982 we didn't see as many of our classmates as we thought, but the event was well attended. The classes f... Sat, 19 Oct 2013 23:46:14 EST High School Reunion this weekend. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5517424 Very pleasant day today. Had an appreciation luncheon at work today for about 15 employees. This store does them every month and draws names for employees to attend. Soft tacos and apple pie with ice cream. I was conservative and good. Was a nice break and chance to visit with employees. Still am the new kid on the block kinda having only been at this location for abut a month and a half or so. <BR> <BR> Home and went to some of the High School reunion activities. Walked ... Sat, 19 Oct 2013 00:27:36 EST Nice day today- work , home TV http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5516496 Late day for me at work, doing Admin stuff. No issues, just a nice dau to get paperwork caught up. Home and ate dinner and am vegging tonight with my TV shows. Go form Big Bang to Elementary. Just my one night to veg. <BR> <BR> One more day and have Sat off for my High School reunion. Supposed to rain, but events are inside so no worries. Am skipping the Prairie Dog fun shoot a the club, that would be outside and would be cold and wet. Will work on Sunday so having Sat off wi... Thu, 17 Oct 2013 22:18:31 EST Accomplished alot today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5515541 Busy day with my Mom. Had breakfast at Perkins, then Chiro Appointment, picked out some new slip on shoes for her for winter. Then got cat food and a humidifier filter for her. Also picked up her glasses she had ordered, and then to her house. I installed the filter and got the garbage set out for pickup on Thursday. Then took to the dentist for her cleaning. Turns out she has a cavity! So we will go back next Wednesday to get that taken care of. She was pooped after all ... Wed, 16 Oct 2013 21:16:19 EST Club meeting tonight. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5514717 Tonight was the monthly meeting for the gun club. Short meeting at the Legion since the clubhouse is torn up due to the bathroom addition. Construction is moving along, the pipes are in and hoping to pour the flooring on Thursday. Saturday the plan is to get the framing going. All dependent on weather and volunteer help. Neither Jim or I have any experience building, so we are worthless for assisting in this phase. <BR> <BR> Good news was no one was there whining about not being ... Tue, 15 Oct 2013 22:54:31 EST Fall is coming- cooler temps today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5513565 Big change from Sunny Sunday yesterday. Gray skies, cooler temps. Was supposed to have 50% chance of rain, but so far nothing. No Leagues tonight, so we putzed with our leaf blower to make sure it was working okay, Took it apart to clean a screen, and it was okay so put that back together. Hung a few hooks in the garage to hang extension cords. Then inside and hung the shelves we bought for Jim's radio shack. He has (or we have) a pretty nice shack. <BR> <BR> Just relaxing no... Mon, 14 Oct 2013 19:48:56 EST I'm Back! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5512461 Took a few days off SP and concentrated on Stuff for the gun club. Renewals coming up and worked on verifying Range Attendant shifts and getting the renewals all in order with the printer. The other member that usually is around to help with any issues is in Africa with her husband on a safari- lucky her. She has sent some awesome pictures of the trophies they have harvested. <BR> <BR> Didn't take my Extra test last Wednesday for the Ham radio- just didn't feel ready and why waste the ... Sun, 13 Oct 2013 16:59:49 EST Burger King Satisfries-Hmmmm http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5507416 We did go to Burger King last night for dinner and tried the new Satisfries. At first I was impressed, they were hot, fresh and big thick krinkle fries. My husband had 3 of fries and stopped eating them. He said they had a funny taste. I was dipping mine in ketchup and didn't notice it at first, but then one of the fries tasted funny. I started being more aware of the the aftertaste and stopped eating them too. Disappointing. <BR> <BR> Jim didn't get all of the California c... Mon, 7 Oct 2013 21:47:53 EST More rain and cool temps http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5506184 Worked today, didn't miss anything with the drizzle and cool temps. Had a nice day and now starting to think seriously about dinner. I am hungry! Tempted to go to Burger King and try out the new french fries. <BR> <BR> Jim is working the radio waves trying to finish up all the counties in California. Contest ends pretty quick around 5pm or so . I think he has 8-9 to go. <BR> <BR> Might not walk tonight- misty drizzle and just blah out. Sun, 6 Oct 2013 17:34:36 EST Good day today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5505473 Doing good today, ate good, went for a walk after work. The day went well at work, I think things are started to fall into a pattern and I'm getting the hang of my new location. Actually found time to breathe the few days. <BR> <BR> Overcast today except for around noon there was some sun. But is was long gone when I got off work. Went to the gun club last night to pick up the new membership cards for renewals. the forms should be mailing out pretty quick from the printer. ... Sat, 5 Oct 2013 20:37:01 EST Rain, Rain Rain http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5503886 Boy it POURED last night. Thunder and lightening. Maggie was not a happy puppy. But we sure needed the rain. At some point when i took Maggie outside before bed, I must have hit the garage door open and not noticed it. Jim told me the garage door was wide open this morning. <BR> Nothing missing, but not good. <BR> <BR> Worked later tonight, had a good day. Spent some time with one of my backup bookies going over some new stuff at work and how we can try and manage the over/sho... Thu, 3 Oct 2013 21:59:43 EST Good day with Mom http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5502823 Today was a really nice sunny late summer day. Mom and I had our breakfast at Perkins and the headed to the Chiropractor. We both had adjustments which felt great. Stopped at a car dealer and got ballpark prices on her car to sell. She is giving up her car this month and we have a few leads of people that may be interested. Now we have some prices to work with. <BR> <BR> Did a few things around the house for my mom, and then headed for home. Jim and I had supper and then went f... Wed, 2 Oct 2013 20:16:38 EST Much better day today. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5501869 Things were looking up today, went smoother and got the Online shopping issues under control. <BR> Have Wednesday off,so hope things go smooth for a day or so. So tricky to fix one error from one day and then have another pop up so the over/shorts never seem to balance out. I seem to constantly be researching.fixing, and figuring out what the heck did or didnt get paid or applied correctly. <BR> <BR> Still was a really nice late summer day here. Went for a walk after supper and then ran... Tue, 1 Oct 2013 21:49:41 EST Not a good day today at work http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5500715 Today wasn't the best day at work. Two days off and spent most of the day trying to figure what went wrong. Turns out everyone was trying to be helpful to fix some orders that didn't get paid right away so when they thought they would get paid, they rang the orders up again, and then again...... Got it all figured out, but ate up most of my day. Bad thing is our fiscal year ended on Sunday for work so the correction I did today technically will be on the new 2014 Cash O/S. The amo... Mon, 30 Sep 2013 21:00:43 EST Productive day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5499528 Really nice day today in MN. Sunny, no clouds and nice cool temps. Did errands in the morning and got in a nice walk. Went out again to where i bought my Keen tennis shoes. Was getting a callus where the shoe was rubbing. Turns out the insole was rubbing on the one foot. Discovered it last night, just didn;t realize it was the insole. Ended up getting new insoles which feel much better so hope that solves the problem. Going on walks just wasn't fun when my foot was rubbing o... Sun, 29 Sep 2013 18:46:12 EST Nice relaxing day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5498773 Have the weekend off for a change. Got up and did a few errands with hubby and then home and spent some time contesting on the radio. Jim did most of the talking, but I did get one good contact for a special event from the USS Wisconsin in Virginia. The ship is a decommissioned ship and there was a special radio event going on from the ship. I will get a certificate and QSL card (a confirmation card of the contact). Will also send my own QSL card to them. We now have a scrap bo... Sat, 28 Sep 2013 19:24:30 EST Is it Fall or Summer? Either way-wonderful day. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5497202 Another really nice day here in MN. We did our walk after supper and it was nice, sunny and cool. I have the weekend off, and sounds like Saturday will be wet and cool. But Sunday is supposed to be okay. Would like to get out to the gun club for some practice at least one day. <BR> <BR> Vegging out tonight with TV. Thursday is typically my TV night with Big Bang Theory and Elementary. New episodes tonight. <BR> <BR> Over and out <em>41</em> Thu, 26 Sep 2013 20:58:30 EST Busy day at work http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5496280 I worked today, so no breakfast with Mom. Pretty smooth daya t work, just felt weird to be there on Wednesday. Working Monday through Friday is tough when your used to a break in the middle of the week. <BR> <BR> After work Jim and i went to get some gas n my moms car for her. I also checked up at the grocery store where she gets her prescriptions filled. The doctor hadn't called in the pain prescription for her. So then we went to the clinic and i was able to talk to the Doctor. ... Wed, 25 Sep 2013 21:08:51 EST Feeling much Better! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5494212 At work today I took both of the computer monitors off the stands they were on and just had them on the desk. Much better! It lowered them a good 5 inches or so that made all the difference in the world. My neck for the first time wasn't screaming at me by the end of the day. <BR> <BR> Now hope that the others that have to share my office will be okay with them down that low. If not, will have to see if IS can get us monitors that can move up and down. Had to get them at my last st... Mon, 23 Sep 2013 20:38:55 EST busy day at work http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5493075 Back to work now, vacation over. Tired already and the week hasn't even really started. <BR> Hopefully will get back in the swing of things this week and get some ground rules established to help get rid of some issues with our online shopping dept. That is where I waste most of my day hunting down their "errors" and mistakes. One of the reasons I was transferred to this store was to fix the problems they are having. Have my work cut out for me I can see. Problem is don't have e... Sun, 22 Sep 2013 19:27:16 EST Youth Day at Gun Club http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5492195 Today was Youth Day at the Gun Club. The weather was perfect, sunny and cool for the most part. Had 215 kids from the head count, plus parents or relatives and club members with them. <BR> Had shooting going on at just about every range. Something for everyone, from archery, trap & skeet to pistol and long range rifle. <BR> <BR> I manned the doorprizes and membership info booth. Would draw tickets during the event and post for the kids to match up with the other half of the tick... Sat, 21 Sep 2013 19:54:26 EST Breezed in and out of work http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5491464 Covered a shift today for a coworker while I was on vacation. Her son committed suicide 4 years ago today and she takes this day off to be with her husband and family. Just happened to be the same week I had vacation planned before my transfer to my new store. No biggie for me to work and I totally understood. Just felt weird to be gone for the week, and breeze in and out for the one day. <BR> <BR> Cool and rainy tonight. Home playing on radio and now need to study for my Extra t... Fri, 20 Sep 2013 20:16:45 EST Another Mom day-good find too! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5490545 This morning I picked up my mom and she had a CT scan on her back and hips. Then we went to Perkins for a quick bite to eat. It was getting pretty dark and windy out and the power went out while we were at Perkins. We were able to get our food, one of the last meals made before the power went out. They didn't charge us for the food which was nice, and then the restaurant was closed since they couldn't cook. We then went to get my mom's glasses some new lenses ordered. We tried mo... Thu, 19 Sep 2013 20:21:24 EST Busy Dr. day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5489659 Between my mom and I were cruising doctor appointments most of the day. I had mine at 8:30 in the morning-recap of the blood work from last week. Good results, much better than May when I went in for my physical. Blood sugar is down to 5.7 from 6.2. Cholesterol is down to 195 from 260. Have lost 10 pounds, but also am on meds now for both. Will keep working on the weight loss and what I eat. This week hasn't been too great being on vacation, but will be back on track in ... Wed, 18 Sep 2013 21:29:35 EST Another good day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5488837 Got some more organizing done in the garage today. Hung the tool rack we bought at Lowe's for rakes, shovels and such. Nothing fancy, but it is much better than just the nails everything was hung on. Hope to take some pictures when all this is done. Won't get to do much on Wednesday out there, since I will be with my mom and running errands with her, but finally on Thursday I have the day to myself. Will be able to concentrate on finishing up out there I hope. <BR> <BR> Today... Wed, 18 Sep 2013 00:20:39 EST Progess today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5487823 I'm on vacation and hubby took Mon & Tues off so we got alot accomplished today. Ran errands and got him to the chiro for an adjustment. His back has been tight the past week or so. Had a disc that was not quite right and the adjustment helped alot. <BR> <BR> Worked some more in the garage, hung a 2 x 4 across the wall studs. Hung the hooks we bought on Sunday and all the sawhorses are now neatly hanging on the wall. Also hung a hook on the other side and hung up the folding cha... Tue, 17 Sep 2013 00:19:19 EST Low key day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5486468 Took it easy today, sort of- did a walk in the am and then hubby listened on the radio for the Route 66 event. Trying to get one last station by today. Then he will have reached out and contacted all 18 or so in the event. That last one he can't find on the airwaves so far. <BR> <BR> Took a break around noon and some some lunch and picked up some shelving from the Container Store. The Elna shelving is on sale at 25% off. Nice deal. Also got some hangers for the garage to hang the ...

Three shooting events to challenge cowboys - knock down 6 tombstones from a mounted "horse", shot with a lever action rifle, best poker hand shot with a lever action rifle and knock down 6 tombstones with a revolver. <BR> <BR> The trusty club cowpony all saddled up. Yes, another of the 1001 uses for an empty beer keg! <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/7/l1754261009.jpg"> <BR> <BR> Here I am ... Sat, 14 Sep 2013 18:42:50 EST Vacation starting now. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5484999 Taking almost a week off from work. Hopefully the weather will be nice. Sat is the cowboy shoot at the club. Have my cowboys duds all ready. No luck on boots though. Will fake it with moccasins. <BR> <BR> Jim is taking Mon & Tues off also, and Weds is with my mom, and I will work on Friday, so that gives me just one day for myself. Not exactly how i planned my week, but will be nice to be with hubby too. Just was looking forward to more me time. <BR> <BR> Got in a wal... Fri, 13 Sep 2013 23:02:37 EST Passed my General tonight! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5483167 Haven't posted a blog for about a week now- have been studying diligently for my General Ham radio test. Took the test tonight and passed! Got 29 out of the 35 questions right. More than enough to pass, only needed 26 correct answers. Whew! I did it! The examiners asked if I wanted to take the Extra test, which is the next level license. I had told Jim I wouldn't, but suddenly one of the examiners plunked the test and answer sheet in front of me. He wanted me to give it a t... Wed, 11 Sep 2013 22:58:25 EST Finally some rain! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5473021 We got some rain here finally, not much but it was wet. And today was so much cooler. We went to the gun club and actually wore fleece jackets it felt so cool. Did some .22 rifle plinking. <BR> <BR> Have TWO, count them TWO days off in a row. Like heaven. <BR> <BR> New store/job seems to be working out okay. Just going to take some time to feel like I fit in and know what I am doing. So far everyone there has been great. The drive is much shorter and faster, straight shot on t...

Didn't last long, but it was something. Wish it would rain some more. Is very humid out right now. We did a quick walk after dinner and what little breeze there was felt good. <BR> <BR> Today I did most of the bookkeeping on my own, just asked questions here and there as to where some things were or went. Tomorrow I am on my own. My security blanket is off for the weekend. I get Sunday and Monday off! Two whole days Heave... Thu, 29 Aug 2013 18:22:53 EST Farwell Photo from work-with cake! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5468173 <BR> Here is a photo of me last Saturday, just before my transfer to my new store on Monday. <BR> <BR> The cake was wonderful! Many employees stopped by the breakroom for cake and to say goodbye. <BR> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/7/6/l766929088.jpg"> Tue, 27 Aug 2013 19:14:35 EST Getting situated http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5468154 Getting the feel for the new store. Have most of my computer logins and files moved over for me by the IS team. Have Weds off and then one more day with my back up. Friday I will be on my own. <BR> <BR> Went for a walk after dinner. Very hot. Heat index at 110 today. Might have some rain coming Thurs AM.. Sure hope so. We need it. <BR> <BR> Tue, 27 Aug 2013 18:50:09 EST First day at new store. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5467221 Today was good, lot's of new/old stuff to go over and learn. Same job, just each store does a few things different. Really hot here today still. Got to get my routine going once I learn where everything is and how it works here. <BR> <BR> Went for a very short walk, just too hot. Mon, 26 Aug 2013 21:11:25 EST Hitting Level 20! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5466241 With this blog entry I will hit Level 20 on SP! <BR> <BR> Wow- I made it! Won;t be killing myself for points,now, just wanted so hit the top level at least. <BR> <BR> It was very warm here in MN. High 90's and heat index of 105. My last day at the store was very good. Tried to get all the loose ends tied up and left emails for others about things. So many were on vacation last week we never had a chance to fill in the gaps. I'm sure they will call if they have questions. It'...
