Two Great Girl Scout Weekends!
Mother's Day weekend was a success! We only had three of our girls (that are not leaders' daughters) with their mother (sister in one case, mother is in a wheelchair) and one of our teen volunteers show up for the tea party. This ended up being ... Read more
This weekend's upcoming events
Last weekend was full of house cleaning, this coming weekend is just full of activities! My husband is riding down to see his step-mother (who just lost her mother and is not doing too well herself) with his brother on their motorcycles. Hubby m... Read more
Glamping with Girl Scouts
This past weekend was so much fun! The troop went to Camp Chowenwaw for a Glamping weekend. It was originally supposed to be for Cadettes and Juniors in the entire Service Unit, but of course nobody else signed up. So, we did it ourselves.

The Biggest Loser at Work
Ok, so there are so many of us in my department that want to lose weight, so we decided to make it fun! With some suggestions from the ladies here, I put together a Biggest Loser of sorts. We put in $1 today (the first day) to get weighed. Then,... Read more
How not to do it...
I received this in my mail box this morning. I need to forward this to my friend, this describes her to a "T"! She had a revelation, not necessarily on January 1st, and started her diet. She works out for an hour or two in the morning, jogs a co... Read more
Update to the Halloween blog
So, I was the devil this year, didn't win best costume. However, we did win for office decorating! We had a graveyard and spiderwebs all over the place. We did have a table set up with Halloween goblets sitting on a Halloween tablecloth. Too cut... Read more
There has been so much going on here lately. I really don't know how much God thinks I can handle, but enough is enough!
Hubby is resisting my pleas to get him into the doctor's office. He needs a physical, to stop smoking, to lose weight,... Read more
Soooo slipped last week! I was going to really try and lose some weight while hubby was gone. Nope! Didn't happen. Kids were good the first couple of days without daddy, then, Ms Hyde came around (and her two sisters, Mini Hyde and Midi Hyde) an... Read more

Update on the Girl Scouts
We have 18 girls registered in our troop! There are 14 girls in the fourth and fifth grade, three girls in the sixth and seventh, and a girl in the tenth. I still have to talk with our SUM to see HOW we will work that out! Originally, we were 4/... Read more
A Little Bit Depressed
But not so depressed as to stop eating or stuff my face with every Nutty Buddy bar in the house.
Unfortunately, I have been slipping in my workouts. I have to get back into it slowly because of my hernia and asthma, but damn I think I've go... Read more
Back from the farm
Went to the family's property in Georgia Friday, just got back a couple of hours ago. Usually, the guys are working hard on the property during the summer to prepare for hunting season and the winter, this weekend was no different. While I was g... Read more
The Past Week
In the past week, we were quite a bit more active than we have been. Today, we walked and picnicked at Sheffield Regional Park. "Redneck-swimming-hole-turned-
city-park", Sheffield has fishing, boating (non-motored-craft), and lots of hiking.... Read more
Back to Girl Scouts Event
Yesterday I went WAAAY off my diet! The good thing is, with all of the walking around I did, I probably broke even. BUT, hot dogs for lunch along with a little piece of monkey bread and then a large plate of rice for dinner really didn't make it... Read more
