Good Morning '48ers,

Had to check and saw I didn't check in yesterday. Sorry 'bout that. Nothing too exciting here. A bit of rain. DS' Birthday party was sort of a flop. Only 4 people showed up! Don't know what the problem is but geez, have the decency to at least send a text you can't make it! But he seemed O.K. afterwards which I was concerned about.

Linda, yes I'm a 'late' starter with the kids. I was 34 when I married DW and she was 24 and we had the 1st DS that 1st year. 2nd one came almost 5 years later. Only regret they're not closer together in age. Always thought that was better, but what do I know. Sorry to hear you're going through so much pain. Glad to hear you took a pill to make it through and know what you mean about wanting to get off those things. Hope you get some answers soon and know you and all the other '48ers dealing with health issues are in my prayers daily for a little extra help.
Glad to hear you've got family with you helping you through this.

Agnes, you are the 'jet-setter' aren't you. California, New York, D.C.. Whew! That's a good workout just getting them all in. Hope your work meetings go well and time with DD is enjoyable, sure it will be.

Margaret, you're hoping for spring, I'm hoping for more rain, so somehow we need to get a compromise here. I don't want to see 80 deg. weather yet.

Mary, WOW! Not a good month for any of us. Somehow I know we'll do better. Just wondering if it was the cold weather and the 'hibernating' we're doing that is showing these results. I certainly don't feel like a 'loser' with that number, LOL!
How are you feeling by the way? Everything O.K. with the 'noggin' and what was done?

Bernie, congratulations on your GS' winning that competition. Sounds like your help pushed them over the finish line to the 'Winner's Circle'. Congratulations to the whole team.

Well I'm off and hoping all of you have the best day ever.

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Good Morning, Another sleepless night. Since coming off alot of the painkillers, my pain was bad last night. Ended up taking one pill just to get thru. Will be contacting dr after my treatment this morning. Today I have my DIL taking me to my clinic.
Dwayne, How did your sons party go? A young 29 yr old son. My son is the youngest and he is 45.
Agnes, You are one busy gal. Lots of traveling still.
Margaret, We had lovely sunshine yesterday, but today they are calling for snow flurries. Weather is crazy all over.
Mary, Spring is coming and I am sure you will all get back on track to losing again. I have lost another couple of pounds. Eating soft non scratchy foods. Bland with no spices and only lukewarm. Not very exciting. Now at 146
Cheers, Linda

Hello Everyone,

Just a quick check in to let you know that I am thinking of you all and hope that you are doing well, especially those who are dealing with health problems.

I was in CA for vacation, returned home for a quick turn around to go to NY. A dear friend passed away and I wanted to go to her services. From there I traveled to DC, where I am now. This is for a few days of work meetings and a little time with friends and my daughter. I will return to Maine at the end of the week, and will be better then at checking in with everyone.

Again, I hope you are all doing well.

Best,
Agnes

Good morning everyone.

Well Mary you made me laugh with your icons. I know it's no laughing matter that we all gained this month but we will do better next month for sure.

I wish spring would arrive soon . Mother nature can't make up her mind as to what season she wants us to be in. It's very cold and damp again. and in the minus. Then tomorrow we are supposed to be in the pluses. No wonder everyone I know has a cold.

Today I'll be meeting up with friends to take an exercise class . We all look forward to it. The women who go there are a nice bunch and we usually end up laughing more then anything.

Hope you have a great day.

Hugs Margaret

Well Dear 48er's it looks like the February challengers was a complete flop for ALL 4 of us who have reported. No "losers" I'm afraid. We did however ALL gain. emoticon

Dwayne, you did the best.... 216.4 ...216.67 ==0.27 gain
Margaret, 234---> 236---2 lb gain
Bernie, 180.5---->183.5 ----3 lb gain
Me, 189.6----> 193.2 ---- 3.6 lb gain

OK we can do better than this. It's been a rough month for us but Spring is on the way & I personally challenge each one of us to pick ourselves off the chair & push the plate away. emoticon

Good morning everyone.

Bernie, emoticon emoticon for your GS. He must be very excited. With all your hard work along with all the parents work as well. LOL Somebody has to keep them focused.

Dwayne, How did the party go for your son? Come on we want to know all the details. LOL

Not much happening here today. We had a lot of rain yesterday and mild temps then over night the wind came in and we are now back in the minus temps. I'm so looking forward to our spring. One good thing with all the rain it washed a lot of snow away.

Hope you enjoy your Sunday.

Welcome Guyonimac. Hope to hear from you again.

Forgot to post my weight which is at 183.5. Not a very good month for me as I have been craving carbs and sugar. My DH and I are still suffering - him with pneumonia and i with bronchitis. Seems to be hanging on way too long.

Wishing all well for the weekend.
Bernie

ps My DD texted me that my GS's team won first place in their Imagination Destination competition. I think that means they go on to a state competition. They are so excited.

Good Morning '48ers or anyone else "CLOSE",

GUYONIMAC, welcome to the group. Will be great to have a little 'male' back-up as these ladies keep me on my toes and running! Let us know a little about yourself. Once again welcome!

Linda, sorry to hear that everything is yet to be 100% but it will come I just know and believe it. Know that you and everyone else on this board are in my prayers daily.
How's your furry lil' baby doing with Momma being home? Bet she's happy!!!

Margaret, sorry to hear of the 'ruff' time you're going through. I know my DW thinks often of her Mom who passed 20 years ago and on the day she'll usually break down and I know what's wrong at least. Just remember those good memories and be happy they were in your life.

Mary, let's face it, we've gotten older and it's so hard to get the weight off, unlike when we were 30-somethings and could drop 3 pounds in a week with no effort. Wha' happened?!?!?! LOL! I know you'll come back, it's just up to each of us to
"think" of what we're doing and I think we'll find a lot of answers. I know you'll get back on track and be back BELOW where you were.

Getting house cleaned for a small party DS is having tonight with a few friends. Hope for his sake it's a good time for him. He turned 29 and he's a gem of a young man. Like to think he takes after his Dad, but I laugh at just typing that, let alone believing that. His Mom deserves all the credit there.

Well enough of my bantering, got to get busy. Hope you all have a great day, a great week-end and stay active!

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Good morning everyone. emoticon GUYONIMAC tell us a little about yourself we hope you come back and join in with our little group.

Mary I guess it was a bad month for everyone. I don't have any proof but I know I have had a ruff month . I've lost my parents years ago and it's at this time of the year. Then last year we lost my brother. I guess all that didn't help either. They have been on my mind a lot lately.

Today its washing and cleaning and maybe a little time with DD.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

emoticon GUYONIMAC, please feel free to join us. We're a small group but friendly bunch doing a weekly weigh-in & monthly challenge. Not always successful, but very supportive of each other.

emoticon was at 193.2 which is up by 3 lbs this week which puts me 3.6 lbs gained this month. That is the highest I've been since last July! emoticon Not good. It has been a very stressful week but that should not be an excuse.

Will check back later.

Hi, welcome to join in with us. Only off by a year.
Mary, sorry forgot to weigh in this morning. I will try tomorrow morning when I get my brace changed . Had my second radiation treatment this morning . I get them in my throat area. Then I had them change my bandage . Now have to find out if the stitches are dissolving kind or if someone needs to do it . Very bad follow up treatment. Feeling very tired but ok. I will miss it when my eldest Dd heads home on the weekend.
Cheers, Linda

Good morning everyone it's emoticon Friday. I was on a binge yesterday to much on my mind and not enough exercise. I'm up 2 pounds this week at 236. I'm back to being a yoyo.

Hopefully I can keep on track today. I don't like being up again. I would like to drop a good 20 pounds before June. Our children have planned a special gathering of family from all over the place for our 50th. So it would be nice to be down in weight.

Today I'll be meeting up with friends then do some running around and meet up with my sister a little later on in the day.

Hope you all have a great weigh in.

Woke up to a surprise snowfall. Just enough to make everything look beautiful.

It was amazing working with my DD and the Destination Imagination school team. The time flew by and trying to keep everyone on task to finish their project for the competition Saturday morning was a challenge but the boys finished it - mostly. So.. it is all loaded up in one of the dad's truck and we'll see how it goes on Saturday.

I am feeling quite exhausted so will take my meds and go to bed early. Hope I didn't pass on any germs.

Dwayne, thank you for the belated birthday greeting and the goodie.

Good Morning '48ers,

Bernie, first off, a belated emoticon to you! Sorry I missed it. Going to add it to my 'calendar' so I won't miss it again. Sounds like you had a great day. Hope you're DH is coming along and getting better. I know at our age it seems to take a 'wee bit longer' to recuperate, even though our mind is telling us we're still like we were 20 years ago.

Margaret, I have to say I can identify with one of your posts because I'd shut down the PC last night and remembered I hadn't posted to our board. Want to think I was 'way involved' with other thoughts, but I just plain forgot. So going to 'try' and post every morning when I first get on and not wait. May not be a journal, but I'll keep the 'streak' alive. LOL!

Mary, you're always off and doing something, which I think is so great. I don't do that and am realizing it now, slowly but surely. Need to step up my game as they say. Sounds like your area is enjoying almost spring weather. We're cold and wet here. Our area hasn't been affected really, just a lot of h2O going down the drain.
Northern California is really getting hit. We're supposed to be getting more rain this week-end so we'll see what that does for us.

Char, know that you're in my prayers as are all of you.

Well, I'm off to do something?!?!?!

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Good morning everyone. It's going to be a nice day here Not cold at all. We are expecting 14 C for Sunday but with a lot of rain. That should get rid of some of the snow.

Bernie, glad to hear you enjoyed your Birthday. Gifts like you received from your children are the best I think. I love getting them from my kiddies as well.

Mary, do you know what size your bump is? Because up here if it's over a 10 mm size it has to be done by a plastic surgeon. All the small ones my doctor was able to take off in her office I much more preferred that.

Going out with friends again today. Just to walk around and get some new curtains for my bedroom window.

Hope you all have a great day.

emoticon for the get well wishes and birthday cheer!

My DH is not recovering well. Doc gave him some new antibiotics today so hope they kicks in soon. I also went to the doctor and got antibiotics for bronchitis. This is day 8 and I think I have turned the corner and had a much better day. And of all things - last night I was eating a nut protein bar and when I finished I thought my tooth felt funny. I guess I chipped a filling without even knowing it so I must have eaten that as well! emoticon Got in to the dentist quickly today and he replaced the filling in like 15 minutes. I love the advances in dentistry!

We postponed celebrating my birthday until everyone is well but my DD and DS did give me a gift I will cherish always. She had a book made of the our family pictures for the year- mostly the grand kids in all their various activities and fun snap shots. I love looking at it. I am so blessed with all the texts, cards, facebook friends and family and my spark people friends. All in all I had a very special day.

Tomorrow I am going to help my DD with 9 ten year old little boys working on an Imagination Destination project. It is a problem solving experience and their competition is Saturday. They have to get their project completed tomorrow and work on their presentation when all they really want to do is pile up on the floor and wrestle with each other. Should be fun trying to keep them focused.

Praying for everyone to get be well!
Pleasant dreams!

Margaret, I did work today & will again tomorrow but then I'll be off a few days. I go back to my Dermatologist on March 8th for him to cut some more from that spot.

Suppose to get up to 80 degrees tomorrow. Don't think I will need long sleeves but then again, my client's mom is likely to run the A/C so I'll be bringing a scrub jacket anyway. I'm tired & have another headache so I think I'll get to bed early tonight. emoticon

Hi everyone. Sorry I didn't post yesterday. I just plain forgot. It was a busy day of collecting friends and going to my sister's house for a party. Then back home again and having an early night.

emoticon Bernie. Hope you have had a great day with family and friends. I also hope you and hubby re feeling better.

Char, I'm glad the doctor has found out what is giving you so much pain. I'm sure you'll be as back to your old self as soon as he fixes you up. I'll keep you in my prayers each day.

Linda, Hope it doesn't get to painful for you. Hopefully with Tylenol everything will be ok. Know that you are still in my prayers .

Mary, do you ever stop. You sound like the energize bunny. LOL Hope you don't have to work this week. That way you can get some rest before you do. Did your doctor take off the lump on your head yet?

Dwayne, I hope everything is well at your house. How old was your DS?

I had an appointment with the nurse today. She was saying that she will talk to my doctor about lowering my dose for the blood pressure. I'm hoping he'll get the prescription to me before the weekend as that is when I'll be do to renew my medication.

Hope your all have a good night.

Good morning everyone. Finally was able to sit down and read all the posts since my last post on Saturday. Sorry I have been MIA for a few days. I was out of town for a scholarship committee. Got back home last night. Exhausted but a good experience and was with a great group of ladies on the committee.

Char, praying for you to get pain relief soon. Glad the doctor wants to act fast on fixing the problem.

Linda, thankful for your ability to get around more and for your DD being there for you. Where are they going to concentrate the radiation treatments? What area?

Dwayne, you and your family have been on my mind allot with all the rain and flooding problems going on in CA. Hope you are not being affected.

Margaret, glad your weather is improving and you can get out again.

Susan, we're having the most unusual winter here also. Let's just enjoy it! emoticon

Bernie, I want to say that maybe it's your BD??? I have to check my computer this evening but that's what my feeble brain is telling me. 😂 Hope you and your family are doing better from all the sickness.

Agnes still on vacation???

Well got to go.

Frustrating day. Saw Surgeon for follow up and wanted answer as to why I felt great after surgery and now more pain. Well don't like the answer. Xray shows possible new vertabra fracture above the one he fixed. MRI being scheduled and he said he is doing lower back MRI as he saw a shadow on one of the verts in the lumbar area. This is a result of years of steriods. I take inhaled steroids for my asthma and they eat the bones. Not so good. So for those who pray, remember me if you can. I hope they get this done fast and repair what needs before it gets worse. HE said that sooner fixes should stop any future breaks. These are compression fractures. At least my disc are in good health or things would be much worse.

Hope all are having a better week.

HUGS and BLESSINGS!!

Have a great Tuesday all. It's a bit cooler here in Virginia today but I'm not complaining. The temps are already higher than usual at this time of the year.

Good Morning, Another day home. Yeah. Had a very bad night with pain, but today is good.
Susan, I am envious of your good weather, but things are inproving as the snow is gone and not raining today as yet. My son was down here yesterday and i have asked him to bring all my spring garden stuff down to my new place. Once that is here I can get busy doing some gardening stuff and make my own little corner of the yard I am hoping. Yesterday was special as I had all three of my kids with me and some of the Gkids.
Today and this week of have my eldest daughter staying over for the week to help out as the DD that lives here will be away on a much deserved get away.She is going to Storm watch up island at a fancy resort for a couple of nights. Lucky her.
Dwayne, Hope you get your appliance running, but if not a Spart phone is the answer. Tricky as first, but I would not be without mine now. Absoulutely love it. So happy I changed phone providers and got this phone. It does so many things and this old grannie has learned alot lately. It helps to have tech support upstairs...
Best go now, as I am told we are heading out to do some shopping.
Cheers, Linda

Good Morning '48ers,

Susan, enjoy the weather! We're getting some rain and it's so badly needed, but of course, it's all coming fairly close together which doesn't allow it much time to soak into the ground water but we'll take it. Hopefully by the end of the 'rain' season we'll be out of the drought, but I doubt the state will say that to keep the $'s coming in.

Bernie, hope you're feeling a bit better and your DH also.

Margaret, didn't get Jawbone connected so I don't know what I'm going to do. If the Spark tracker still lights up I can 'guesstimate' my steps by the number of lights but I don't know if it will. Kind of doubting it will. Sounds like I'm being "shoved" into getting a smart phone so we'll see.

Well, off to the gym shortly. Hoping all of you have a great day.

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Good morning everyone. Hope you all had a great weekend.

Dwayne, hope you were able to get your jawbone conceded to Sparks.

Bernie, I hope your feeling better by now. Let us know how your doing.

I'm off soon for a meeting . First I'll get the car washed and go to the bank and then to pick up a friend to take her to the meeting as well.

The weather is nice again and the snow is melting. Hopefully we get rid of a mountain or two.

Have a good day.

Hugs Margaret

Good Morning '48ers,

A bit frustrated right now. Bought a Jawbone UP Move to replace the Spark Activity tracker that will die next week and can't get it to sync up to my PC. GRRRR --- ARRRGGGHHH! Can't get the app for it to load to my PC and trying to find the fix for it. Since I don't have a 'smart phone' I might have just bought something I can't use now. Kind of shows what my past few days have been like...LOL!

Margaret, enjoy your breakfast and the visit with friends. Always a great thing.

Bernie, as Margaret said, you've got to take care of yourself because if you go down then it all collapses. Just do what "LITTLE" you can and leave it at that and get yourself rested up.

Mary, glad to hear everything was A.O.K. from your Dr.

Linda, truly like your new photo. Margaret was right "You be the 'Spunky' one". Glad to hear your pup is doing better. I think there needs to be a little 'clearing of the air' between the 2 of them. And your GS deserves the good words. Like I said too many 'millenials' today just don't care, it's all about 'them'.

Well, off to the gym shortly to make up for a couple of bad days I created for myself. But did have 'Cauliflower Calzone' last night for dinner DD-i-L made. Was different to say the least. DW didn't care for it, but I could eat it every once in a while, just not daily. LOL! Good on calories, carbs and low fat, til you put the sauce and pepperoni to it.

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Good morning everyone.

Bernie, so sorry to hear you are under the weather. But you do know that MOM is always the one to take care of everyone else before herself. Now you have to look after yourself . It seems to be the norm for this time of the year. The weather has been so silly warm one day and freezing the next it's no wonder everyone is sick. Please make sure you take care of yourself and have plenty of rest.

Linda, like your new photo. It shows you got spunk lady. Your doing great. How's your furry friend doing ? Is he able to get up the stairs on his own now? Our GD brought her dog over for a visit yesterday it's a (Australian sheep dog) He enjoyed running around with my big guy. But mine usually pays for it the next day. The snow was so deep that it was almost covering them up. I'll post a few photos so you can see.

Mary, Happy to hear the good news about your head. It sounds like you have what I had. Hope that's the only one they find. But make sure you have further check ups ok.

Today is our monthly breakfast meeting for the motor cycle club. Thank goodness it's not to far from here . I just want to stay home . LOL I'm tired of running around.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Hugs Margaret

Linda, it is so good to see you up and about!

I'm too tired to read other posts. While MIA my husband is down with pneumonia and everyone in my daughter's family including is ill. She is the worst with sinusitis, coughing, etc. So while playing nurse to them I have been trying so hard to stay healthy but it didn't work. I am now suffering from sore throat going into the coughing, etc.

I am not doing well with my weight either. I am up to 183.5.

I will try to read past posts and catch up with what is going on with my fellow 48ers. Right now I'm going to climb back into bed

Hi,
Mary , so happy you got a good report on your head. Not a problem , but soon it will be all good again.
I have been having a good day. Went out to watch GD field hockey game. She won 3-0 . Came home and had a nap. GD is now playing soccer, but I decided to stay at home for a nap. Now getting ready to walk my dog. She is on prednisone since last night and that has perked her up. I can not carry this dog at all and won;t even try that one.
Margaret, that must be one big cat to go biting a dogs legs on the stairs as he goes down. Poor little guy. I think cats are sometimes very mean animals the way they think.
Our weather here today has been sunny and rainy. At least we don't have all that cold anymore.
Dwayne, I told my GS that I had nice remarks about him for helping me , and he was pleased to hear that. I had him helping me do a resent update on the picture of me. What a hag huh... Oh well , it is what it is, and I am happy to still be around.
Tonight when all the household gets home from sports etc. we are going to the Thai restaurant down the road for some dinner, as my treat for Valentines dinner which I had not been able to get treats for anyone as being in hospital. Of course they gave me wonderful yummy goodies, and I will say that they were most graciously excepted, and eaten quickly....
Best go and get ready. Even a chore to get shoes and coats on these days.
Cheers, Linda

Beautiful Spring-like day here in the Gulf Coast. Windows are open. Washing done. Still need to mop kitchen then I'll be done for the day.

Margaret, hope you had a nice shopping day with your DD in her new wheels. My DD got new wheels yesterday also but haven't seen it yet. She was so excited when she called me yesterday.

Dwayne, The Dermatologist's nurse called me with the results & praise God it was not malignant but it has roots so he wanted to cut deeper to make sure he gets it all. I see him again in 2 weeks. My GS (the nurse) checked it for me today & said it's looking good. I just have to keep it scrubbed so a scab doesn't form & keep ointment on it. Oddly, it has not hurt at all even when it was a fresh cut.

Good Morning '48ers,

Wow, quite a lot of posts I hadn't seen for some reason. Somehow I guess I got lost in the past few days.

Margaret, glad you and DH had a nice belated Valentine's Day dinner. My DW will not go out on that day because of the crowds and prefers to go a day or 2 later which is fine by me. That sounds like some kind of cat your GD has! Feel sorry for your poor pup getting nipped then falling down the stairs.

Linda, glad to hear you're doing a little better even with the brace you don't like. Hope you're taking it easy on yourself especially trying to get your pup outside. Just use all the caution you can. It really is 'one day at a time'. Also, give your GS a 'shout out' from me for helping his DGM! That's awesome for a young man to be that caring. So many nowadays wouldn't do it. Be grateful.

Char, we hate to admit it but we are getting older. I know 68 is the new 50 but after an operation like you had it's going to take a bit longer to recuperate. It's like losing weight. We can't drop 10 pounds in a couple weeks like we used to do. it takes time, so just use that mantra "1 day at a time" and take it slow. It will come in time. Sorry to hear of your bronchitis acting up and that doesn't help things any.

Mary, thanks for the words of wisdom regarding DW. I know if I was to yell and belittle her about smoking she'd just resent me and be more difficult. Trying to get her to call our Dr. to order patches. She keeps saying she'll do it but it hasn't happened yet. I try not to criticize her about it since I used to smoke and gave it up cold-turkey almost 20+ years ago. I just want to support. And I goofed up, she's having an Ultrasound on her kidneys not a sonigram, so........By the way Mary, how did your Dr.s' visit and that 'freezing' session go? Any word yet?

Well, I've been fooling around all morning, it's almost noon and I haven't gotten to the gym yet, so I'm signing off. Know you're all in my prayers, especially Char and Linda with their recovery. Hope you're all having a great week-end.

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Good morning everyone. It's going to be nice here over the weekend.. I'll be going shopping with DD in her new car. she is quite excited to show me her new wheels.

Yesterday Hubby and I had our diner out to celebrate our Valentines Day seeing he was very busy on the special day. We tried a new spot and enjoyed it very much. The dessert was brought home along with half of my meal. There was just to much. So hubby will enjoy the left overs.

Linda at the moment we have our GD cat staying with us and she likes to nibble at our dogs legs as he goes by. She did this the other day as he was going down the stairs and he ended up falling down them. It took him a few days to be able to maneuver them again. Hubby ended up picking him up and taking him out for a few days. There isn't much we can do for them in that state. Hope all goes well with your fury friend.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Hugs Margaret

Good Morning '48ers,

Hope all of you are doing well and getting in your workouts.

For me weight today is 215.64 - down a little over 1# for the week. I'll take it gladly, still working for my next goal.

Well off to the gym shortly and been a little 'stressed' for some reason?!?!?! I think I know the cause for it but nothing I can do to change it so trying to let it go.

Here's to all of you and hoping your upcoming week-end is filled with exercise, healthy food, family and friends. Stay grateful. Know that all of you are in my prayers daily...

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,

I'm at 190.2 on emoticon this morning. That's done a little from last Friday.

Linda, sounds like you are finally enjoying life again. So glad for you that you finally have pain relief and freedom to do things again. But should you be lifting on your injured pet? Please be cautious!

Char good to hear from you but sorry to hear that you are still in so much pain and sick on top of that! Are you doing PT for your back? Are you on medication for the bronchitis? emoticon emoticon

Margaret, I know what you mean about making poor food choices. I try so hard to eat right then all of a sudden I blow it by eating too much of something I really like that I should not eat. That's life. I'm sure we'll both do better next week.

OK, we've got a few more that will hopefully check in later. Maybe not Agnes this week but will return later to see if Bernie, Deana, & Dwayne report in.

Susan, we do a monthly challenge here with our small group. We report our current weight every Friday, then at the end of the month, we see who the "biggest Loser" is for that month. The winner gets a SparkGoodie from the rest of us. Our end of this month will be next Friday, Feb 24th. Please join in if you like!

Good Morning, emoticon Now weigh 148.5 with brace on. I need to wear this until bones regenerate inside that cage they installed. A good couple of months ahead of me before I can be rid of that. I never ever liked anything around my neck like turtlenecks or scarves , but after this I will probably need something as I am used to being all wrapped up.
Today will be interesting cause my old doggie had a fall and now does not want to stand to go up the stairs and outside. Now that I am dressed I can try to get her up and outside for a pee. Wish me luck. Not easy moving a large lump of a dog.
Char, Hang in there. Everyday one at a time.
The rest of the gang should be reporting in today, so I will be checking back in to support you all. Love this group of great people.
Cheers, Linda

Good morning everyone. It's emoticon Friday. Not so good this week. I went out yesterday and didn't make very good choices. I'm up 2 pounds to 234. Hopefully better next week.

Mary , glad to here you have some time off and can get caught up on your sleep. Every bit helps. The new mattress sounds like that will help as well. I hope they can deliver it soon enough.

Dwayne, nice to hear that your DW finally got some news. I'll say like Mary if she doesn't want to quit it's no sense trying to get her to do it.

Linda, so glad you had fun with your GS. I 'm sure you enjoyed it very much. when you weigh this week you'll only be lighter when your brace comes off. When will that be?

Char, please take it a day at a time. Having a cold can't be helping any so please take care.

Hope you all have a great weigh in.

Hugs Margaret

Hi. Boy have I ever had a busy but fun day. My grandson has been terrific taking me around in the store etc and so helpful. We celebrated his 19 th birthday today so went out to dinner and home for cake with relatives. All tired out . My whole body is swollen and bruised from the operation. Who know what they do to you while under . Feeling so much better already even with the brace on. No more bobble head.
Glad that your wife got some good new Dwayne. It's been a long wait and that is hard on everyone..
Margaret . Glad our weather here is not anything like yours is .
Must look into those books mentioned. I need some new stuff to read to keep my days filled up without overdoing it . Will try to weigh in tomorrow morning but will have brace still on so it probably weighs a couple of pounds. Well I am off to bed really soon. Must get old doggie outside for her last night visit. She hates the stairs and did have abit of a fall earlier today . Good nite all.
Cheers, Linda

Good Evening all. Was going to check in earlier but GS & his little family came by for a visit. Always a fun time with them.

Worked today but now off for a whole week. Plan to catch up on some sleep tomorrow then go shopping for a new mattress. I've been having more & more back ache lately. About 4 am this morning I woke up in such pain I had trouble turning myself in the bed so I could get up to the BR. We;ve talked several times about replacing our mattress but now it's time.

Margaret, enjoy your outing tomorrow. I hope you have nice weather for it.

Susan, yes I did read the Shack as well & the movie will be showing the first week of March. We already have tickets for it. It is based on the book. I'm anxious to see how close it is to the book & to see how they are able to do some of the things the book describes.

Dwayne, Glad to hear the news was favorable for your DW. From experience, I know that it is not easy to stop smoking & even more so if you don't want to quit. If she ever makes her mind to do it, she will. I know it's not ideal for you, but there's really nothing you can say or do that will make her stop.

Well tomorrow is emoticon day so I'm hoping to see some good reports!

Good Morning '48ers or 'Close Enoughs',

Margaret I had every intention of coming back and posting but I side-tracked myself. I seem to do that a lot and maybe that's why "Honey-Do" list keeps getting longer and I'm falling behind. Working on changing that as best I can. If your weather people can predict 14 days out and be even better than 50% right you're lucky. I always seem to just check what's going to happen the next day. So many times it seems it changes day to day. Sounds like you had a case of 'cabin fever' too with the storm you got. Glad to hear you got out and hoping you're getting some exercise in too.

Mary sounds like you had a great Valentine's Day with DH. I'm sure he just wanted to please you for all you do for him and reminding you of "Happy Valentine's Day. As for DW's appt. that you and others asked about it was so-so. She had some good news and then gave her a bit of a lecture on smoking and of course that NEVER SITS WELL with her. She feels bad afterwards and is upset and it takes a while for her to calm down. I try to tell her they're just trying to give her some great advice but she doesn't take it that way. She did like this Dr. and her style. She mentioned a couple things we hadn't heard from all the other Dr.'s
so a little learned. She said her kidneys didn't seem to be a problem but of course she wants a couple blood tests and then a sonigram of her kidneys. So more tests and no results.

Agnes, welcome to California! Hope you have a great trip and the weather should be some rain and some sun so you'll get our best. Enjoy yourself!

Took 2 of our dogs to the groomers early this morning so that got me into the gym early which is good for me instead of 'putzing around' and then going. I don't know why I do that and am looking for answers OR solutions?!?!?! Any ideas out there?

Well, got some housework to do and maybe, just maybe catch up a little. Hoping all of you have a great day, getting some exercise in, eating right and enjoying family and friends.

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Mary,

Thanks for the information on the book you're reading. Did you also read "The Shack"? I saw that movie advertised and wonder if it was taken from that book.

Thanks,
Susan

Good morning everyone.

Well we ended up getting that storm after all. Now we should be in the clear for the next 14 days at least.

I guess you all must be very busy or very tired as there wasn't much action on our thread yesterday. I hope everyone is ok.

Well I'm finally going out today. I have been cooped up in the house since Sunday. My friend called yesterday and said she has cabin fever and that she was feeling better . So we will meet up to go and do a bit of shopping.

Hope you all have a great day.

Hugs Margaret

Good morning everyone.

Mary couldn't get in touch with the doctor yesterday . He hasn't made any changed in the medication so I don't know what's happening. But I'm going to try again today to get in touch with the nurse or with him.

I have a friend out in Prince Edward Island and she has been hit very hard as well. We didn't get as much as we were supposed to get so that was good,

Dwayne , hope everything went well for your DW yesterday. Hope she gets some answers soon.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Good evening all! Hope you all have had a Happy Valentine's Day. emoticon emoticon emoticon I had an awesome day with DH who took me to lunch, told me Happy Valentine's Day at least a dozen times. emoticon This afternoon we went to see my Dermatologist for a lesion on the top of my head that he had already frozen twice & it was back for the 3rd time so he removed it & sending it off for biopsy. I should have results back by the end of next week.

Margaret, I hope you were able to reach the doctor's office about your B/P being low. Has he added or changed any of your medicines lately that may be causing it to go so low? About all your snow...I have a friend in New Brunswick that is getting that storm also. I can't even imagine that much snow! Poor doggie, I wouldn't want to go out either. lol

Linda, so glad to hear that they acted fast to get that surgery done & give you some pain relief! Do take care & try to give yourself time to heal when you do get home. Our prayers continue. emoticon

Susan, I'm reading "Eve" by Wm Paul Young, who also wrote "The Shack". I've been reading every night & it's hard to put it down.

Dwayne, yes, I've seen some of the news about the dam in CA. So sad. Hope they get it repaired before homes & lives are lost. How did your DW's appt go today with the Kidney specialist?

Agnes, so glad to hear that your flight did indeed take off & that you are able to enjoy new things. What a sweet Valentine gift!

Well I'm off to bed so read some more. Have to work the next 2 days. emoticon

Good Morning '48ers,

Happy Valentine's Day to all you ladies. My DW does NOT like this holiday! She thinks it's a farce and feels bad for our youngest son who hasn't found his 'special person' yet. So you could say I'm off the hook, but I still bought her 2 pounds of her favorite See's candy so I'm good...LOL!

Linda, you are welcome here and like you said we grew up in some amazing times. Such an easy era, sad that it's gone in some ways, but that's progress and the future. Hoping to see you post often.

Linda, so glad you got your surgery and pain is subsiding. Know you're in my prayers every day and soon you'll be home recuperating and have your pup there with you. I know she's missed you, as to her you've been gone weeks.

Mary, yes the rain has been a blessing and we're in line for more from Friday thru the week-end. But the down side is, I imagine you've heard about the dam in Northern California that's got a hole in it. They're lowering the lake behind it 50 feet to ease the pressure and make repairs. But to do that they have to release 100,000 cubic feet of water PER SECOND! AMAZING! It's so sad our state didn't plan for things ahead of time and instead is building a 'bullet train' from 'nowhere to nowhere'. Literally! I won't get started, but it's already 5x's over budget and that was for an $8 billion dollar project! Enjoy the spring like weather you're getting, we never know what's coming.

Margaret, interesting experiment you tried. I hope you get some answers and are taking care not to over-do things. You could tell DH what you discovered and get him to give you a hand maybe?!?!?!

Well, off to the gym soon, then DW has an appt. with a Kidney specialist today, so I imagine this will mean more tests. It just never ends for her and we get NO ANSWERS! Just more tests. I appreciate precaution but this is getting ridiculous.

O.K. I've ranted and raved to you Ladies long enough on this holidy. Enjoy your day and I know it will be filled with love and happiness...

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Good morning everyone.

Linda, glad to hear you've had the operation and all is going well. You'll be home soon with your furry friend to keep you company. I'm so glad the doctors were able to relieve you of the pain. Each day will get better from here on in. Take it slowly and do what they tell you. Your in my prayers each day.

Mary I did an experiment yesterday. Just before going out to shovel the balcony off I took my pressure. After coming back in I waited 5 minutes and took it again and it was low again. I've come to the conclusion that the more I do the lower it stays. I'll be contacting the nurse today.

Today we have a quiet day . No snow in the forecast but we get another 10-15 cm again tomorrow. More shovelling in to look forward to.

Hope you all have a great day. HAPPY VALENTINES DAY emoticon emoticon

Hi to all, I have been missing on here as have had my surgery done very quickly on Friday 10th. I am still in hospital and all hooked up to many wires and drains. Some of them to be taken off today. Operation was bigger than expected as bones in neck were more destroyed than he knew but my titaniam cage is installed. Now just drinking liquids which ia hard to swallow. Every day better from now on and then home and get radiation started . At least now most the pain is gone and I have some use of my hand. Best go and get ready for my breakfast tray of fluids arrives . Thx for all the good wishes sent.
Cheers, Linda

Trying to live a healthier life by eating properly.
Linda, in B.C,

emoticon LINDATWILSON I'll say like Mary your very welcome to join us here. I hope you stop by often and tell us a little about yourself.

Mary, I went to let the dog out this morning and he couldn't see the stairs to go down into the yard the snow is so high. So he relieved himself on the balcony. It's still snowing. I'm so glad I don't have to work today.it looks like hubby and I will be busy shovelling. We got our 20 inches for sure if not more. It started at 12.30 yesterday afternoon I just checked and it seems to have stopped right now. Hopefully that's it .

Hope you all have a great day.

emoticon LINDATWILSON, 1949 IS close enough! You are welcome here. We are a small but friendly group that love to chat & do our best to shed these extra pounds. Join the fun!

Margaret, I hate the feeling of low B/P. It just wipes you out. Glad you're feeling better today. Hope the storm is not too bad for you.

Dwayne, glad to here you are getting more rain. We're having Spring like weather here with temps close to 80 degrees today. The temps have been doing the yoyo even more than my weight this Winter. emoticon

Bernie, Your quilt sounds beautiful and I'm sure your DD will love it. I'm sure the ones to the hospice unit were a blessing as well. I'm still working on decluttering also but it never seems to get completed so I'm still chipping away at it a little at a time.

We had a fun time at the Valentine party last night at church. Spaghetti supper with salad then we did a few games of BINGO for prizes and finished out with 4 couples doing the "Almost Newlywed Game" What a riot! We laughed so much.

Got my nap in this afternoon. Just hope I can sleep tonight but if not, I did start a new book a few nights ago that I'm anxious to get back to. emoticon

Hi there everyone. Well the storm has arrived now we sit and wait to see what damage it's going to do.

Yesterday We ended up having a beautiful visit with our GD's and all our GGS. Talk about a hectic house with the 3 of them running around and having a great tie together. It was so nice to se them having so much fun.

My blood pressure was low all day. I couldn't shake it. Finally I call the nurse line and spoke to a nurse about it. I would just get a bit queezy in the knees but after I had sat down for a few minutes it would pass. I had had a big day of house cleaning and did a bit of baking along with doing the washing. If anything I thought it would have been up not down. I was on the move all day. Go figure. This morning it was back to normal.

I 've been grocery shopping with DD and then met up with my friend whose birthday was this week so we had a little lunch to celebrate. Now back home where it's warm and cozy. I don't plan on going anywhere else.

Hope you all have a lovely Sunday.

Hugs Margaret

Good Sunday Morning '48ers,

Hoping all are well and enjoying today.

Mary I would think ANYTHING after getting ready for taxes would be fun. Personally a colonoscopy is more fun then getting taxes done! 'Nuf said on that.

Finished yesterday with thunderstorm and heavy rain and hail for about a half hour and all was then quiet. Today sun is out and we're clear until next Friday when more rain is coming in. YEEHAW! Finally getting what we need. Of course we're still in a 'drought' and even if we got rain every week for a year I think they'd keep the mandates in place just to keep h2O prices up. Just my cynical opinion.

Bernie, I gather you weren't happy with your weight? Didn't you just come back from a vacation and we all know what that does to us?!?!?! Probably wrong on this but don't fret, the weight will come off we all just need to be more diligent with our eating, journaling everything and being aware.

Hope all of you have a great finish to your week-end and enjoy today!

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Little late in posting my weigh in. The scales said 182 and I couldn't believe it so I weighed some other things then weighed again and sure enough 182. emoticon

I am back to my decluttering a little every day. Quilting a little every day as I work on the quilt for my daughter's king size bed. I'm enjoying this quilt so much that it will be hard to give away. In between I have made a couple of charity quilts for our Hospice unit at the hospital.

Wishing everyone a blessed Sonday tomorrow!

Good Morning '48ers,

Hope all of you are doing well and enjoying your week-end. Are you getting your workouts in? Just checking up, as I've been bad this week about my working out and need to get back to it. For me to say I can't find the time isn't true, so there, I've put it out there. Got to get back to it.

Margaret, enjoy the time with your GD and GGS'. I think most Grandmas and Grandpas would love to see their GK's every day or almost. And so nice you can send them home for your TV time with the eyes shut...LOL.

Got to get back to it. All of you have a great Saturday...

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Good morning everyone. Hope your having a good weekend so far.

On my agenda today is housework, washing, and a little baking. Hopefully all before noon. As my GD is trying to come to see us along with our 2 GGS who I don't get to see as much as I would like to.

Snowing again here today but nothing to much. At least it won't be so heavy as the last snow/rain fall we had last time.

Hope you have a great Saturday.

Good Morning '48ers,

Weight for me today is 216.9#'s - up about 0.9#'s. Not where I wanted to be but have only myself to blame and lack of motivation. So for me today, working on that and focus.

GUYONIMAC, You're welcome here and enjoy this group. These ladies keep me on my toes DAILY!

Susan, hope your week-end is filled with fun, friends + family, and eating with thought. Get your exercise in too!

Margaret, glad to hear it's nothing, just sorry you're losing your Dr. Kind of sucks when you think about it, but it's what a lot of people think about. Too bad she won't keep her prices down for patients she has now. That would seem to be the right thing to do, but what do I know.

Agnes, hope you have a good trip.

Char, sounds like you're doing well on your recovery. Hope it continues and that you'll take it slow. You're in my prayers.

Mary, your telling Char to take it 'slow' on the recovery and I remember you young lady, almost running a marathon after a week or so removed from your surgery. Doesn't sound like you took your own advice or 'medicine' as it is.

Well, I'm still trying to get back on track. Just have not been motivated this past few days and no reason for it. So I'm working on that today; just keep the thoughts positive and moving forward.

Hope all of you have a great week-end and miss those MIA's...

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Susan, have a great weekend!

Agnes, hope your flight was able to take off as planned.

Margaret, sounds like rough conditions for driving. Be careful. BTW, so glad to hear that it was the scar & not more CA.

Char, Take it easy & let yourself heal so that the pain can go away. Prayers for you.

Linda, thinking about you also. Hope you are getting along better.

Dwayne, Deana & Bernie, I'll check back later for your reports.

Quick check in. Weight is still 206 same as last week. Not bad considering a couple of outings for parties. I am getting better at watching what/when I eat.
