I also did my regular walk, 2.3 miles, two hours later. And I may have to walk a little farther to the bus stop after work. It's a good thing I got two walks in today. My husband has already informed me that he will be coming home with a goody bag. He has been bringing junk food home all week. Tuesday he brought home 3 cup cakes. I took one to work on Wednesday and I had one today. He ate the other one. Yesterday he brought home ... Thu, 30 Oct 2014 17:56:52 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5807256 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.3 miles. After work, I walked almost a mile to and from the bus stop. When I got home I walked 2 miles with my husband. My fitbit says I walked 15,555 steps and 6.91 miles. I'm sure I'll make it to 7 miles before I go to bed. I'm struggling with my food, but I'm doing a little better than I did last week. <em>211</em> Wed, 29 Oct 2014 23:04:39 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5806646 Today I walked with the group at work, 1.4 miles. When I got home, my husband and I walked 2.6 miles. I also ran a little going to the bus stop and I jogged in place at home. My fitbit says I walked over 6 miles and 14,000 steps. <em>311</em> Tue, 28 Oct 2014 23:27:20 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5806008 At lunch time today, I walked 2.8 miles. After work, my husband and I walked 2.6 miles. We also stopped at the mall on the way home and I walked the length of the mall twice. My fitbit says I walked 16,800 steps and over 8 miles. I'm doing really well with my exercising but I still don't have a handle on my eating. I did very well on Friday with the fried fish. But Saturday and Sunday, not so well. I was down on Saturday morning and up again this morning. I'm not mad though because I ... Mon, 27 Oct 2014 22:37:03 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5805323 I had every intention of going to church today but we didn't make it. My husband's sister brought her car over at 9 am. My husband and my brother in law got up under the car to take out the oxygen sensor. It took longer than my husband had planned for. By the time they finished working on the car it was 12 pm. Then my husband's nephew came by and we all went to Costco. By the time we finished shopping and got home it was 3 pm. They all finally left and I felt like our day just got away... Sun, 26 Oct 2014 22:49:57 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5804821 This morning we walked 3.6 miles. After we walked we ate breakfast and then went over to my husband's brother's house to look at his sister's car. They can't get it smogged so my husband went over there and hooked his machine up to it to find out what the problem was. After that we came home to get ready for the surprise birthday party we were supposed to be at by at least 2:30. After we got ready my husband decided he wanted to go pick up his eye glasses. By this time it was already 1 p... Sun, 26 Oct 2014 01:29:35 EST A Longer walk http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5804118 Today I walked 3.6 miles at lunch time. When I leave work, I plan on walking another .6 mile to the bus stop. I don't know if we will be walking this evening. My husband's sister and brother-in-law are coming over. And of course my mom and grandson will be coming too. My husband says he is going to fry some fish. We bought this big two pack of olive oil sometime ago and I guess my husband is itching to use it. He says he is going to use the deep fryer. Hopefully his sister and brothe... Fri, 24 Oct 2014 18:15:42 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5803522 Today I walked with the group at work. We walked 1.3 miles. A couple of hours later, I took my regular 2.3 mile walk. I may not be walking this evening because we have Bible Study. I'm not sure yet. But I needed to get my miles in just in case. Thu, 23 Oct 2014 17:28:59 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5803113 Today I walked 2.3 miles at lunch time. After work, I walked .6 miles to the bus stop. And when I got home I walked 2 miles with my husband. Unfortunately, I'm still eating a little too much. <em>29</em> I have to keep pushing until I get it right. <em>521</em> Thu, 23 Oct 2014 00:16:38 EST Burned Several Calories Today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5802500 Today I walked with the group at work. This time there were more people and they walked faster. We walked about 1.4 miles. I didn't feel like going out again so I walked half a mile to the bus stop after work. Of course that meant I missed my bus but another one came 6 minutes later. When I got home, my husband and I walked 2.6 miles. I also ran in place for another mile while watching TV. My fitbit says I walked 7.2 miles and 15,801 steps. I burned a lot of extra calories, unfortunat... Tue, 21 Oct 2014 23:59:03 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5801858 Today was our off day from work. We took our car in for a routine oil change and maintenance check up at 7 am. When we got home, my husband decided he wanted to mow the lawn. I actually mowed it, as usual. He did the edging. Then we went to the pharmacy to pick up some medicine. Afterwards, we finally went to his mom's house to fix her computer. We were there for less than an hour. Then we went to a friends house to fix her computer and we were there for about 3 hours. She had a real... Tue, 21 Oct 2014 00:47:54 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5801213 This morning we got up at 7:30 and went to breakfast at IHOP. My husband's idea of course. Then we came home and started cleaning. My husband vacuumed all the floors and cleaned the wooden floor. I started the laundry and cleaned the kitchen. Then my husband called his sister to see when they were coming. They were already on their way. When they got here, my husband had to find his bolt cutter because my brother-in-law lost the key to the lock on his storage unit. We went on over the... Mon, 20 Oct 2014 02:15:17 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5800656 Today we helped my sister in law and her husband move. We were supposed to get up at 6:30, walk two miles, go have breakfast, and then drive out to Palmdale. It didn't work out like we planned. I woke my husband up at 6:30, but he said he needed more sleep. So I went back to sleep. We didn't get up until 7:30 which meant there was no time to walk. Then we had to go pick up someone who was helping with the move. So we picked him up and grabbed a bite at Mac Donald's. We didn't get down ... Sun, 19 Oct 2014 01:21:39 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5800089 Today I walked 2.3 miles at lunch time. I also walked to the bus stop after work. And when I got home, I walked 2.6 miles with my husband. My fitbit says I walked over 6 miles and 14,000 steps. I may do a little walking in place as I watch my TV shows tonight. Tomorrow we will be driving to Palmdale to help my husband's sister move. It's going to be a long day! I hope you all have a great weekend! Fri, 17 Oct 2014 22:00:14 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5799379 Today I saw a flyer that said join our 30 minute walk posted on one of the boards at work. So I went out at the appropriate time to walk. There was a lady holding a sign and a guy walking in place next to her. So I went over and said you guys are the people I am looking for. The lady said she couldn't walk. The guy said he would walk with me but he would probably slow me up because he has a hip problem. Then another girl showed up and another man. So the three of us walk. To make a lo... Thu, 16 Oct 2014 15:58:42 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5798850 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.3 miles. It was a little cool out there. I have a cousin who works in the same building with me and she was supposed to start walking with me today. I posted a recent picture, of my husband and I, on facebook and she was so impressed by our weight loss that she wanted to know what we were doing. I think she thinks we are holding back. I told her she needs to log unto a website where she can monitor her food intake and exercise. She says she is alr... Wed, 15 Oct 2014 17:58:41 EST An Okay Weigh In http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5798213 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.3 miles. I don't know if we will walk tonight. After work, my husband has to go look at his play mom's computer and they always have serious issues with their machine. We may be there for awhile. My weigh in this morning was okay. When I left here on Sunday morning, I weighed 244.7. I was 245.1 this morning. I'm actually pleasantly surprised that I didn't go up more. On Sunday night I know I ate a little too much. We always have snacks in our ... Tue, 14 Oct 2014 17:31:41 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5797793 We made it back from Las Vegas. It was a nice trip. No family drama. My husband and I got a lot of walking in. When we got there Sunday, we bought breakfast and took it to his daughter's place. We bought enough for everyone. We stayed for almost two hours and then we left to go check in our hotel room. Then we did some walking downtown and afterwards, we bought dinner and took it to his daughter's. We stayed over there for about an hour and then we went downtown again walking and play... Tue, 14 Oct 2014 02:08:18 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5796615 This morning my mom and I went to Bakersfield. I drove there and back. My husband and I were supposed to leave for Las Vegas when I got home but we couldn't find a room cheap enough. They wanted over one hundred dollars to stay tonight so we decided to go tomorrow morning. It will be less than $40 for Sunday night. I did pretty good on my food intake today. I usually eat candy while driving to make sure I stay awake but I was able to drive without eating. I didn't get much exercise so ... Sun, 12 Oct 2014 00:56:53 EST I Got Two Walks In Today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5796105 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.3 miles. I walked to the bus stop after work. And when I got home my husband and I walked 2.6 miles. We jogged a little bit too. Tomorrow is going to be a busy day. I have to get up early and go with my mom and cousin to Bakersfield. I'm pretty sure I will drive down there and back. And as soon as I get home, my husband is going to drive us to Las Vegas to visit with the newest grand child. I hope everyone has a great weekend! <em>213</em> Fri, 10 Oct 2014 23:47:36 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5795592 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.3 miles. After work I walked half a mile to the bus stop. My husband walked alone when we got home. I went to Bible study. When I got home I jogged in place until I got my 5 miles in. <em>312</em> Fri, 10 Oct 2014 01:22:36 EST Lunch Time Walk http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5794815 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.3 miles. I walked a little faster even though it was a little over 80 degrees. Some areas had a little bit of a breeze so it was nice walking weather for me. My husband and I made it up the hill yesterday after work. I'm not sure how far we will walk today, or if we will walk. He was a little tired from yesterday's walk. This weekend we are going to Las Vegas. My husband's daughter had her baby this morning. We don't have a lot of vacation time ... Wed, 8 Oct 2014 18:26:28 EST Lunch Time Walk http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5794208 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.3 miles. I guess you could say I took a leisurely walk. My husband says we will walk up the hill after work, so I didn't want to tire myself out. But on the last half mile back to my job, I ran to get the light. This light is usually long so I didn't want to stand there waiting. That might have been a mistake. I was so tired after that little run, plus I didn't have on good running shoes. And it was over 90 degrees out there. I made it back to ... Tue, 7 Oct 2014 18:10:54 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5793769 Today was our regular day off. We walked 3.6 miles this morning, then ate breakfast and went to Costco. Afterwards we came home and just relaxed all day. I guess we were a little tired from the weekend's activities. No weight loss for me this week. My husband had made it to 259 but he gained it back over the weekend. <BR> <BR> 01/07/13: 342.2 <BR> 03/04/13: 325 <BR> 05/06/13: 306.9 <BR> 07/01/13: 296.4 <BR> 09/02/13: 290.8 <BR> 11/04/13: 281.7 <BR> 01/06/14: 277.5 <BR> 02/03/14: ... Tue, 7 Oct 2014 00:16:28 EST A No Exercise Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5793142 My husband and I didn't wake up until 9 am. We ate breakfast and went to church. After church, my husband went to fix someone's computer and I went to a 3:30 service at another church. I got home after 6 and my husband wasn't home yet. I was getting ready to get on the treadmill when my husband called and said he was picking me up so we could go to his sister's grand daughter's house to see her new baby. We ended up eating dinner over there and we didn't get back home until 9 pm. His si... Mon, 6 Oct 2014 02:05:29 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5792544 Today my husband and I walked 2.6 miles. Then we mowed the lawn. After we mowed the lawn, we ate breakfast, then went to the grocery store. In between that I found time to mop the floor and clean the kitchen and bathroom. My husband vacuumed and cleaned the family room. We had company again, My husband's brother, sister, brother in law, and nephew came over. My son came over with his family and my husband picked up my grandson. My husband's sister brought tri-tips, pork ribs, greens, ... Sun, 5 Oct 2014 00:38:02 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5792025 I didn't go to work today. Today was my middle child's birthday. I lost him in 2001 just before the age of 21. Today my mom and I went to the cemetery to put flowers on his grave. Then we went shopping for my grand kids. My oldest grand daughter's birthday was last month and she asked me for 2 outfits and toys. She said she wanted an outfit and toy for her sister and one for her. I asked her about her baby brother and she said I could get something for him too. <em>246</em> <BR> Af... Sat, 4 Oct 2014 00:49:07 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5791252 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 3.4 miles. It was over 90 degrees out there. I had to walk because I am planning to go to Bible Study tonight. I was down again on the scale this morning. I really feel like a yo-yo going up and down. One of my spark friends suggested I check my sodium intake and I looked at it. I have been going over my sodium requirements. I need to get that in check and hopefully that will help. Thanks Roxyzmom! I guess I wasn't paying attention. <em>24</em> Thu, 2 Oct 2014 17:42:57 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5790791 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.3 miles. My husband decided we would make today a rest day, so we didn't walk after work. I walked/jogged in place to get my 5 mile daily goal. <em>20</em> Wed, 1 Oct 2014 23:45:11 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5790087 Today I walked 2.3 miles at lunch time. After work I walked to the bus stop and when I got home I walked 3.6 miles with my husband. My fitbit says I walked almost 8 miles and over 17,350 steps. I went down again on the scale. My husband thinks we need a new scale. I don't know why he feels that way. That scale has been good to him. <em>246</em> My husband is a little frustrated because he hasn't been able to get out of the 260's. I have to step my game up because I need to get out o... Wed, 1 Oct 2014 00:03:50 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5789390 Today I walked at lunch time, 2.3 miles. After work I walked half a mile to the bus stop. And when I got home I walked 3.6 miles with my husband. My fitbit says I walked 8 miles and over 18.000 steps today. I'm still going up and down on the scale. It's really strange because my clothes are getting loose and I can zip up pants that I could barely fit into months ago. My husband is doing really well. He is down 5 pounds this week, while I am up .5 pounds. I gained it over the weekend. ... Mon, 29 Sep 2014 22:35:48 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5788728 Today my husband and I went to church. After church we came straight home and ate lunch and talked for awhile. Then he went to his computer room and I watched television. We took our walk after 5 pm. We were only going to walk 2 miles but while we were out there, we were both feeling strong so we walked 3.6 miles. I still need to walk around the house to get my 5 mile daily goal. Sun, 28 Sep 2014 23:24:12 EST A Long Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5788161 This morning we walked 2.6 miles. Then we ate breakfast and went to see the new movie The Equalizer. We saw it in an IMAX theater which meant it cost a little more than the regular theater. It was a great movie but the IMAX part was over rated. We went to Costco and then to the grocery store. My son and his family came over and my husband picked up my older grandson and my husband's brother. The plan was for me and my husband to barbecue 2 slabs of ribs and just relax the rest of the da... Sat, 27 Sep 2014 23:40:58 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5787698 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.8 miles. I had to leave early today to go to the dentist. I took the bus and my husband was supposed to pick me up. But I was finished at the dentist by 3:15 and my husband wouldn't have gotten there until 4:40. So I took the bus home. I had to transfer to another bus at the transit center but I couldn't figure out which stop I was supposed to be at. So, I took a different bus which let me out a little over half a mile from my house. Instead of w... Sat, 27 Sep 2014 01:46:52 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5786903 I just got back from my lunch time walk, 3.6 miles. It was hot out there but I made it. My son came up to my job and met me down the street, because I was still walking, and he said, you are going back to work like that, all sweaty? I said yes, I got to do what I got to do. He just laughed. I make sure I shower every day and I use a good deodorant. Plus I sit by myself. No complaints so far. Heck, I don't even smell me. <em>246</em> I'm pretty sure I'm not walking this evening. I ... Thu, 25 Sep 2014 16:49:30 EST Lunch Time Walk http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5786279 I made it out for my walk, 3.6 miles. I didn't jog today. I'm a little tired and my left knee was bothering me. But I had to make sure I walked at lunch because my husband and I both have appointments to get our eyes checked after work. I don't know if we will be able to walk later. The scale was much nicer to me today. I'm still not going down but at least it didn't vacillate like it did yesterday. <BR> <BR> Current weight 247.4 Wed, 24 Sep 2014 17:07:53 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5785825 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 3.6 miles. I jogged some today. When I got home from work, I walked/jogged another 2.6 miles. My fitbit says I walked over 9 1/2 miles and over 19,500 steps. I don't know what got in to me today. I guess I'm trying to make up for the terrible way I've been eating lately. I'm still going up and down on the scale. I actually couldn't get it to stick to just one number today. Maybe tomorrow I will have better luck. I'm pushing for a good week! <em>... Tue, 23 Sep 2014 23:50:09 EST Day Off http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5785174 We got a late start today but we made it out for a 2 mile walk. Then we went to IHOP for breakfast. After breakfast we went to several stores. We got home after two. Then our elderly neighbor came across the street. She doesn't speak English very well and she can't write it at all. She bought a sympathy card for some neighbors down the street and she wanted one of us to write on the card for her. She stayed a little longer than we would have liked but we try to be neighborly. Then my... Tue, 23 Sep 2014 01:10:02 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5784392 Today my husband decided to grill some steaks. We met his brother, sister and her husband at the store to buy the steaks. His brother and sister picked up some stuff to make macaroni and cheese but they didn't have the money to pay for it. My husband said, then yall can't get it. I said we can get it, so I put it with the steaks and paid for it. I also bought another cake because one of our guest yesterday took half of the other cake home. When we got in the car my husband was griping a... Sun, 21 Sep 2014 23:26:46 EST A Long Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5783815 This morning we mowed the lawn. Then we went to get some propane for the grill and to the store to get a few things. When we got home we had to set the tables up in the back yard and finish some last minute cleaning. Our guests, my husband co-workers and friends, starting arriving at 1:30. My husband grilled chicken links, pork links, beef links and beef patties. I warmed some beans. Someone brought macaroni salad. We also had green salad, chips, soda, beer, cake and ice cream. I ate o... Sun, 21 Sep 2014 00:55:54 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5783115 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 3.6 miles. I didn't run or jog like I did yesterday. I was a little tired. I actually wanted to cut the walk short but I felt that I would be cheating myself. So I kept going. I was down a little on the scale this morning. That was comforting. Next Monday is my husband and my day off from work. My husband told me this morning that we should walk and then go to breakfast. I said you are killing me! He said I am only trying to spend some time with ... Fri, 19 Sep 2014 17:53:07 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5782502 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 3.6 miles. I actually jogged/ran a little. I ran half a block to get the light because it was about to turn green for me and I didn't want to miss it. Then I ran to get in front of this guy who was walking by a lady in a wheelchair. Once I passed them, I ran the whole block. It was a little warm today but much cooler than yesterday, a little over 80 degrees. I was very disappointed with the scale this morning. My husband and my mother say it is temp... Thu, 18 Sep 2014 17:54:33 EST My Birthday! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5782009 This morning we walked 2 miles. Then we went to breakfast at IHOP. We both had the chicken and waffles. Then we went to the Urologist. My husband had to see him about the kidney stone they said he had in the emergency room. The urologist looked at the x-ray's from that night and said there was no kidney stone. He said that everything looked good. That my husband is probably suffering from a strained muscle. After the doctor we went to Costco and the grocery store and then we came hom... Wed, 17 Sep 2014 23:36:34 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5781147 I made it out for my lunch time walk. 3.4 miles. It was hotter today, 102 degrees. I tried to walk in the shade as much as possible. By the time I got back, the back of my shirt was wet. The front didn't get too bad because I put paper towels in my bra to catch the sweat. The paper towels were soaked. We didn't walk yesterday after work and we probably won't walk today. My husband told me earlier he was in a little pain. I told him it was probably because the kidney stone was moving. ... Tue, 16 Sep 2014 17:57:51 EST Another Good Week! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5780443 I just came back from my lunch time walk, 3.2 miles. It was really hot out there, 91 degrees. But I walked like it was 70. I had to. I didn't get any exercise over the weekend and my husband is still under the weather so we may not be walking this evening. Also the scale went up this morning. I thought for sure I was going to reach 246 today. I stayed in my calorie range over the weekend and I didn't eat too many snacks. I think the problem is I didn't get enough sleep. With going to...

And my husband was in a little pain. I made breakfast and my husband went to church with me even though he was feeling bad. We had a second service to go to so I went with my mom while my grandson stayed with my husband. Later my sister in law and her husband came over. They were supposed to come yesterday. They stayed until 10 pm. After they left I washed dishes and got my lunch together for tomorrow....

I kept asking him if he wanted to go to the doctor. He waited until 10:45 to say he wanted to go to the doctor. So we went to the emergency room. We were there until 2 am this morning. Apparently my husband has a kidney stone. We had made plans to go to Bakersfield today to visit a family member. I told my husband we didn't have to go but he insisted we go. I drove down there and he drove back. We left at about 9:20 am and we got back at...

It was too darn hot. We didn't walk yesterday after work because my husband's side was hurting. We bought a mattress set over a year ago and the darn thing is caving in already. We already had a perfectly good mattress set which is a queen but my husband wanted a king size bed. Now that we have both lost a lot of weight, he says the bed is too big and since the mattress is no longer comfortable, we will be moving... Fri, 12 Sep 2014 18:30:43 EST Realization! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5778075 I just came back from my lunch time walk, 2.3 miles. I was looking at my past blogs and I just realized that I made my 8 pound goal for this month. <em>224</em> I have two more weeks to go. I'm going to try to see if I can get 8 more before the month is out. <em>521</em> Thu, 11 Sep 2014 17:24:01 EST A Little Tired Today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5777949 When I got off work yesterday, I got a call from my oldest son. He wanted me to come to his house and watch his kids so he could go to work. His wife decided to work late yesterday. So rather than me sitting at his house my husband suggested we go pick the kids up. So we took our 2 mile walk and then went to pick them up. We had to drop my son off at work because his wife had the car. The grand kids, are 8, 5 and 19 months. I thought it was going to be strange because I have never kept... Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:57:31 EST
