Have a lovely Sunday. Sun, 27 Jul 2014 04:47:23 EST Saturday.... Treadmill 80 minutes as I didn't want to go a third day this week without exercise. I have 2 chins due to infection on left side of my face where I had a root canal Thursday morning. In one hour 30 people will be here for my granddaughters birthday party. I am thinking on wearing a very loud sundress to draw attention away from my face. Hoping the storms don't hit until at least 5 p.m. as it is an outside event. Have a great day! Sat, 26 Jul 2014 11:11:02 EST Friday... Root canal tooth healing is worse today. Antibiotic called in and taking 800 mil. Motrin. Well, at least it is hampering my diet. Have a great weekend.

If you find that you are not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again." Have a lovely day. <BR> Revised: 5:30 p.m....throbbing like you wouldn't believe. I guess meds made it seem like a piece of cake! Thu, 24 Jul 2014 11:46:39 EST Wednesday... 2 Hrs. on treadmill (40 minutes running) to make up for last 2 days of no exercise due to procedure.

Haven't eaten since Saturday as had a 2 day cleanse for my scheduled 9:30 colonoscopy at 9:30 this morning. I feel nauseous and weak from not eating. I wonder if these doctors have ever had one. Here is praying for good results. Have a great day.

Fri, 18 Jul 2014 06:53:11 EST Wednesday Yesterday we went to a Wildlife Safari out by Port Clinton, Ohio where you drive and feed the animals. Never laughed so hard in my life with the buffalo, giraffe, deer and llama putting their heads in the car for carrots. Today I took the grandkids to the park and let them play on the equipment for 2 hours. I really should do some yard work some time today but doubt that will happen as have 2 birthday parties to do after 6 p.m. Have a great rest of the day. Wed, 16 Jul 2014 13:23:52 EST Sweat Yesterday I commented how a guy was really sweating riding his bike and my 4 year old granddaughter asked me what sweat was, and I told her that was fat crying. Tue, 15 Jul 2014 06:50:58 EST Monday Wish I could sleep through just one night without waking up. Would love to take a nap but no rest for the weary. Mon, 14 Jul 2014 14:45:41 EST Sunday... Early morning road trip. Wonder when we will get the storms? Hope they are over in time for the fireworks again tonight... Have a great Sunday. Sun, 13 Jul 2014 06:14:50 EST Yea Cleveland 1) It was just announced that we will get the the GOP Convention in 2016; 2) Great Lakes Brewery is expanding as our Christmas Ale is so much in demand, and 3) Lebron James is coming back to Cleveland Cavaliers. Much needed for the area. I have only seen my son-in-law cry 3 times....When he married my daughter, when they had their first baby, and when Lebron left Cleveland for Miami. Have a great weekend. Sat, 12 Jul 2014 07:45:37 EST Friday Started the day with a migraine and had to go back to bed but it got better. Made it to granddaughters Safety Town graduation, walked on the treadmill for 50 minutes and volunteered at the hospital as a messenger for 4 hours. Have a great weekend. Fri, 11 Jul 2014 16:53:12 EST Thursday.... 23 Hrs. and 40 minutes weeding/trimming in 16 days....haven't been out there every day obviously. I believe this should count as strength training!! Have a wonderful day. Thu, 10 Jul 2014 14:20:36 EST Wednesday.... Going to be losing weight this month...colonoscopy and root canal. Not excited about it though. Have a great Wednesday. Wed, 9 Jul 2014 06:33:29 EST Tuesday So my daughter and her husband, 2 kids and dog moved in here about 3 weeks ago while their house is being built. My oldest son who has joint custody of his 2 kids lives here and is in the process of moving into his house in the next month or two. I have come to the conclusion that I work outside so much because I am in control of the organization of my yard! I am blessed. Have a great day. Tue, 8 Jul 2014 07:26:48 EST Monday Since home from vacation, in 12 days, I have weeded/trimmed a total of 19 hours as I live on 2 acres and have a bunch of beds. It is looking pretty good but more to weed. I am headed outside now before the "80% chance of thunderstorms" happens. Have a lovely day. Mon, 7 Jul 2014 12:04:13 EST Sunday... Another night of little sleep due to inconsiderate people leaving off fireworks until 5 in the morning. I am all for having fun but babies and animals and myself need sleep. It is hard to sleep with a 115 pound dog under your bed panting also. Hopefully I will get in the yard today. Have a great Sunday. <BR> Sun, 6 Jul 2014 07:42:14 EST Saturday... Best family fireworks display last night ever. Even had strobe lights and music set to it. It outdid the city fireworks the other day. When the fireworks were over we heard loud clapping at the side of the house and it was all the neighbors that came over to watch. Very funny. Surprised the police didn't come and ticket someone since they are illegal. Great food and family fun. This seems like Sunday but it is Saturday. Have a great weekend. Sat, 5 Jul 2014 08:56:47 EST Friday.... Happy Independence Day. Wake, cookout and then fireworks... Have a great weekend. Fri, 4 Jul 2014 09:49:05 EST Thursday.... Fireworks were great last night. The 2 & 4 year old granddaughters didn't cry! Yearly exam today and going to see my son with my daughter. <em>334</em> Have to get that exercise in later.... Thu, 3 Jul 2014 07:27:58 EST Wednesday.... Walking on the treadmill this morning and then babysitting 3 children until 2. Hoping for good weather for Elyria fireworks tonight. Have a great day. Wed, 2 Jul 2014 06:52:52 EST Tuesday.... 80 Minutes treadmill, furniture shopping, hair color in a few minutes, perhaps a little weeding after that and on, and on. Have a great day. <BR> Tue, 1 Jul 2014 13:55:33 EST Monday... Going to walk on treadmill here shortly. Pulled weeds for 10 hrs. and 40 minutes since Wednesday and my arms are too tired to do it today. Seeing my BFF in from Michigan around 2 and going to see all 4 of my grandchildren after that. Have a great Monday. Mon, 30 Jun 2014 08:07:47 EST
