I can understand clearing the computers of junk but some of those things should be saved to make the next teacher's life a lot easier. Retirement doesn't mean sitting around any more. Everyone I know is out and about all the time.

You do a great job with your exercise, Kerry. I will go do a dvd in a minute. i had another day of in-service, then went by my old school to give the 'new me' a file folder for Social Studies Night. The computer I had has been wiped clean of all my documents---everything that I've done over 7 years: spelling lists, letters to parents each month, very important templates to make her life easier, etc. Such a waste. No one cares. It's really sad.

i have the long weekend to myself and am so glad to have it. I have Meet the Teacher day on Tuesday and my new part time job starts next Thursday with a doctor appointment for my mother in Beaumont on Wednesday. So much for retirement, lol!

Why is this team so hard to find when no one's posted for day or two?

It's been a busy day for me-an hour of water aerobics, then showering and changing into workout clothes for 15 minutes on the elliptical and 70 minutes of Silver Sneakers. We had a full class today using every chair in the room and had one gal standing through class. I also house sat for DD3 because someone was supposed to come over and do yard work but he never showed so I got a short nap. Of course, I forgot I was supposed to go over and had just sat down at Panera's with my soup and sandwich when I saw her reminder message so I gulped down the soup I wanted to savor, wrapped up the sandwich and went over. I have been wanting that cheddar broccoli soup for a couple weeks and now I'll probably need to go back just so I can actually sit and enjoy it. emoticon

I didn't take into account the time zone changes, Kerry...something else to consider!! I have never had to worry about weighing too little like your neighbor! How sweet that you help her out like that.

I had a very nice in-service day and met lots of nice people. It will take months to learn their names!! I am babysitting tomorrow and am spending the night with Cherilyn now. It was a fun afternoon and evening with the girls and. We had bath night...such a great time!

Mary, there are way too many times when my exercise intentions evaporate-poof their gone and here I sit. Enjoy your week and especially your free weekend. When we travel I have to make sure the clock on my computer keeps up with the time changes so I can get my sparking done without breaking that streak.

Pam, the weather has definitely been out of whack this year-hope it doesn't just keep getting worse.

I did water aerobics this morning and need to check the gym schedule because one of my favorite instructors is coming back. If I have the day right it means I will be at the gym from 9 am to after 12 and will get some much needed cardio exercise in between classes. When I got home today I grabbed a broom and helped my neighbor get her driveway cleaned up a bit and make sure the gutter and drain were both clear. She is a very active almost 80 widow who has the horrible problem of not being able to maintain a good weight. The doctor keeps trying to get her to eat enough to stay above 105 emoticon but I love her anyway. emoticon

Pam, throughout my Spark years I have 'spun the wheel' and kept track of various things for points. I kept my first log in streak even through Dave's hospitalization and death....checking in with y'all and the points sort of kept me grounded. Then that first Spring Break I went to visit a friend and had a bad travel time with Continental becoming United and I was either at the airport, in the air, or meeting my friend and going to her house about 45 minutes away from the airport. By the time we got to her house, with the time change, it was a new day and I hadn't checked in to Spark. I lost my streak of over 3 years. Oh, well, it's happened two other times since then!

I am on my way to in-service and will try to check in later today. Weather in maryland was gorgeous most of the time: 50's at night and 80's during the day with breezes. It's hot and humid here again, but that's the norm. No 'fall weather' until towards Christmas sometimes!

Happy Monday and new month!

Mary

Wow Mary, it sounds like you have a pretty busy week ahead of you. I have no idea what the start page is like because I only have this 1950's message board bookmarked on my favourites bar. When I click on this, you guys are all I see! LOL

Now that it is September, we are about to have the hottest weeks or so that we've had since July. Honestly, this weather is nuts. I do love the weather in September and October, and now we have summer starting again? Sheesh!

God bless,

Hi friends....it's me again! I am getting ready for my in-service with the church's Mother's Day Out program. Even though I will only have a part time job, I still have to attend. I got home from my 'vacation' late Sunday night. My sister and BIL were afraid to drive home in the dark so they stayed until traffic let up yesterday. I did laundry and grocery shopping, went to the library, and other chores. I dressed in my work out clothes, firmly interested in Zumba at 6:00. By the time I got back from the grocery store, still had laundry and Cherilyn and I chatted about babysitting tomorrow, my work out resolve DISSOLVED, lol.

I am so glad to be home but will be busy through Thursday afternoon. I have nothing going on over the long weekend and I am so happy about that! I need a vacation from that vacation and hope I can get back on track really soon. I haven't received any Spark notifications in days. Has anyone noticed that the Start page has changed---again? I am bummed that I have to look for things that used to just 'be there.'

See you later,
Mary

Kerry, I replied to this yesterday and it's not here! No one lives in this area. My sister who is mother of the groom is in Illinois and they went back yesterday. When they left, I got a map, asked for the shuttle for light rail transportation, and we went into Baltimore on the train. I led the field trip. Sister and BIL were no help...didn't know what street we were on, didn't help lok for landmarks, etc. I figured out where to go and just started off. We had lunch at the Inner Harbor and went to the Ripley's believe it or not museum because sister was hot and wanted to stop walking! Then I got us back to the train and the hotel. Brother in law got back in bed! Sister changed our tickets and we are leaving today instead of tomorrow but it will cost us $200 extra. BIL doesn't like driving at night and was worried about driving back home tonight. I told them that they can stay at my house and drive back tomorrow. What a non- vacation, although the wedding itself was lots of fun. I will not travel with them again.

We have had some rain this afternoon and evening but I managed to make a run to the grocery store for some stuff for the 5th Sunday pot luck tomorrow. We'll get more of that for a few days. As I was pulling into the driveway a girl on a scooter was pulling in. That gives us 4 for church.

Mary, you should have just kept your ticket the same and maybe stayed with your sister or someone else. You could have had a fun day without having to worry about them.

I have a friend who lives part time in ft. Myers and is also hoping that Erica will fizzle.

The wedding was really nice. My sister was in bed all day yesterday with her own issues and didn't make it to the wedding. bIL went but left early. I stayed and had a great time with my sister who is mother of the groom and all of her friends. They felt sorry for me having to do nothing on my vacation and we bonded over way more wine than I am used to, lol. Sister and BIL were a little better today so wectook the train into Baltimore and I got us everywhere we needed to go. They never looked at street signs, had no clue where we were and I felt like a teacher on a field trip. But it was wonderful not to be stuck in my room all day. We are leaving tomorrow instead of Monday, paying a huge price to change tickets. But being here with 2 people who can't get through the day has been really hard. I hope they will see their doctors as soon as they get home. Their health issues , mental and physical, color their view on life in general and that's no way to live. This was a mess of a trip and I will be so glad to get home!

Kerry, hopefully Erika won't be a full blown hurricane, but a tropical storm is bad enough. Batten down the hatches, make sure you have edible cold food and flashlights and candles at the ready! Good luck! ((hugs))

There were only two of us for coffee this morning. I had time after to read the paper and get to water aerobics on time. Larry and I had lunch at BW3 with a gift card which covered all but the tip. The salad is so big it was lunch and dinner for me. The evening rain has started and they are forecasting a lot more as Erika comes through this weekend.

Yep, I made it to my Silver Sneaker class. It as a little hot as the A/C was apparently not working right again but I figure I sweated out a pound or two (wishful thinking, I'm sure) emoticon I'm a little surprised Larry isn't home yet but maybe they got to chatting a lot at lunch. Hopefully he gets that paperwork delivered today so it can be overnighted. That will be one more thing done. I managed to remember to pick up a few things at Staples beore coming home so hopefully I can just stay here now.

I hope Larry gets it all done and you get to silver sneakers on time.

BIL is "too tired" to do anything today so he is in bed. My sister and I took the hotel shuttle to the closeby mall and looked around. Nothing to do but read and watch tv until the rehearsal dinner. Ugh. If I would have known this would actually turn out like I was worried I think I would have stayed home.

The worst thing about those electronic driving instructions is that they will put you on every toll road ever built! I think they get paid extra to do that. On some you can tell it to avoid highways but that doesn't always work. I like getting to the airport early but not 3 hours. ugh

Okay, I am still sitting here in my nightgown so I better get in gear so I can get to Silver Sneakers on time. My husband has already been to 3 banks before finding someone who could stamp and verify his signature-it required someone who can do the one that is JUST ABOVE a Notary stamp and most people don't do that. He is now off for his 11 am lunch and then he'll be dropping those papers off at the agent's office.

Hee hee, take care of yourself first, Kerry! Glad the Medicare fix was a good one.

I am ready for bed, tired and glad the day is done. We got to the airport almost 3 hours ahead of time. Sister and BIL are extremely anxious and it will be along trip! They didn't look for driving directios at all. I printed out something that I found on the embassy suites website just in case. The Garmin they rented didn't work, so they said. So I asked Siri! She got us here but it was harrowing. I don't know how sue does it. We probably went on 5 different freeways and 2 toll ways, thank goodness I had money with me! We are in the hotel and met the 2nd sister and her husband a while ago. No real plans for tomorrow. It will be along week!!

Mary, Hope you are having a wonderful time.
I did water aerobics this morning then this afternoon the financial advisor came over and went over our assets and payments and figured out a way that will hopefully give us money to live on for the rest of our lives. Barring any serious health problems, of course. This guy is as friendly and outgoing as the guy who was here for the medicare part of retiring. Now if we can get our wills done we can feel comfortable travelling and the kids won't have too much to worry about financially. I would really hate to leave them too much, though. emoticon

I did have a very nice day. My sister and BIL came here and wanted to go to Red Lobster. And they decided to leave for the airport an hour ahead of our plans so I need to go finish packing and get to bed. I will check in during the week when I can!

Pam, neither of those options for your aunt sounds very good but hopefully which ever happens is quick and painless. Being in pain or with her brain not functioning were my mom's big fears. We have a very nice Hospice just a couple blocks up the street from our house. We did a tour when it opened.

Mary, have a nice relaxing day.

I'm so sorry to hear about your aunt, Pam. I'm glad she has a nice place to spend her last days but it sounds like a very bad sort of cancer. Do you know what type? Years ago my neighbor and friend Sally's nephew had cancer in his sinus cavity. Thank goodness he ended up okay, at least for that time. I hope your aunt will be made as comfy as possible. Sweet of you to visit, but yes, so sad when they all of a sudden don't know you or what's going on.

It was funny, nice, and a little strange to be up at school yesterday! I had an email from both my old teaching partner and the new 1st grade teacher. They both appreciated my help and someone finally came and fixed a few issues by the end of the day. But it's not the way to start off a new year---with a new teacher!

Today I am doing laundry, have a manicure and a haircut. I got a call that my new glasses are ready so I will go by the eye doctor on the way to get my nails done. I tried on my dresses for the wedding yesterday and will pack today. My sister and her husband will be here late today and we leave early tomorrow morning. I will check in when I can!

My auntie, who is 91, was just admitted to the St. Joseph's Hospice Care Hospital. She was diagnosed with terminal cancer a couple of months ago. She was so weak and had lost so much weight, we thought she didn't have long to go. However, the hospice is so lovely and she has a "suite" (a small studio apt. with a balcony actually) that she has perked up amazingly. But she'll be there now until the "end". There's no treatment for her that she could take at her age. The tumour is behind her nose and it has spread and is slowly choking off her carotid artery. Horrible thought, but she will either stroke out or bleed out, depending on which goes first and how. Sigh. She is the last one of her generation in my family. She also is in the initial stages of dementia, poor thing. She was chatting to me on Thursday evening when I went to visit and suddenly she stopped for a moment, looked up at me and said "my brain isn't working". How does one respond to that? So sad. :(

Mary, it must be strange not going back to work, but I'm sure you'll get the hang of this retirement business soon enough. LOL! Our kids here in Canada don't go back to school until September 8 this year, really late. Hopefully your mother will learn that bending over to pick stuff up just isn't acceptable because it obviously makes her dizzy. Maybe someone can be with her (or watching) when she does pick up her mail so that, if she drops something, they can rush up and pick it up for her before she feels the need to bend?

I'm so glad I don't have to worry about stuff like deciding on "plans" that I'll need as I get older. Our health system isn't perfect, but it is "national" in that we don't have "plans". We have needs that our doctors decide on and they can make sure we get whatever treatment we need, whenever. Our taxes pay for it, so no-one gets left out. When hubby was VP at a company a decade ago, we had a Texan come and visit. Apparently he had chest pains one evening. Fortunately for him, it wasn't a heart attack but when he told my hubby about it, hubby asked why he didn't go to the ER immediately. The guy said he didn't have health insurance up here. DH assured him that our ER would have given him whatever emergency care he required to get him fit enough to get home. Our taxes will pay for any real "emergency" care anyone needs, regardless of where they come from.

Well, it's getting late, and I'm getting very tired. I'm off to bed. emoticon

God bless,


Pam from SW Ontario

Yes, she bends over and loses her balance. She shouldn't ever bend over but she does it too often! I don't think she could navigate the walker and a grabber...watch out, Calder Woods...Edna Mary is ready for battle, lol!!

I wonder if the bending over that causes the falling. Maybe she could learn or remember to carry a grabber so she could pick things up without bending. I'm just thinking she may get dizzy.

I bought a long term care policy right after Dave died. I hope it will be something that does work out as I get older. My parents had one...but when they got it in the 80's, the only kind of care you had was with nursing homes. Now mine covers anything, even at home care. I hope if that's what you are able to do, that it works for you!

My 4th sister emails a while ago. My mother went to get her mail fro the in-house box and dropped a letter, bent down to pick it up, and fell....again!! She says she's okay but this is twice in 2 weeks. One of these days she's going to break her other hip or some other bone!

Today the medicare insurance guy came back to show what plan he had found to cover my prescriptions. I told him I wasn't going to keep taking the expensive ones-the one I don't like and don't remember to take it because it has to be taken with food and after I eat I often feel too full to drink a cup of not so good tasting stuff. The other is an eye drop that I'm sure can be subbed with something over the counter but I have to talk to my doctors about both of those. He also talked about an insurance plan that covers long term care. Larry won't qualify for that with COPD and I may not with the weight and the PVCs or premature ventricular contractions. I'll find out in a week or two, I guess. I hate spending more money but I also don't want my kids to have to pay big bills.

No, I didn't know this woman. I met her briefly during my interview when she walked through the room and asked the director a question. It just so happened that the director of my last school emailed me this morning and said htat this woman had had triplets in my old school several years before! So once again, there are 'ties!'

It should be fun getting to know the other workers. Did you teach her kids?
Glad you were able to do the class. We have had a bad storm this evening. Started with the wind whipping through then a heavy downpour followed by a lot of thunder and lightning. I think it's moved out now.

I was able to get in today' 90 minute water aerobics class but now it's thundering and lightening again. It's rained since Thursday every day, which is great for the grass and plants. I have to meet the new teachers at 9:30 tomorrow but it will be wonderful not to have to wake up at 5:25...the first school morning in 30 years of teaching that doesn't involve ME!

Kerry, how sweet that some people make donations for the leftover cookies. I hope your numbers will go up. I've said before that my parish is huge. The priest said last night that we have over 15,000 people with more joining every week. This past week it was another 20 people, not counting children! Of course, there is another huge building campaign, lol. Never fails!! Although it's so big, I probably see 20 or more people I really know regardless of whatever Mass I go to. I just found out that one of the office workers for the Mother's Day Out job had triplets that used to go to my old school. I need to introduce myself to her!

Marylou, I know you will miss Whitney but I'm glad she has a room mate you approve of. That makes a huge difference. Here's to a good school year for her. I hope your year will be a good one. I saw a sweet FB note from one of your colleagues!

I wish everyone a great week.

Sounds like Whitney is paired up with a good match this year which will definitely make for a better year.
We did Sunday School and church and then GD and I sold the rest of the cookies from the car wash. Some people just made donations which is nice. We went to lunch and took the grandkids home before resting for a bit (reading the paper for me) and then back to church for the money counting. That didn't take long as it wasn't much of a pot. We have had several new families visiting for their 2nd or 3rd time plus a brand new couple today. Maybe we CAN rebuild the numbers here. We had a big storm just go rumbling through with a huge downpour but I am just barely hearing some thunder in the distance.

Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend.

Hi all! Went back to my dds college today. She had forgotten a few major things. All her hair supplies and cooking stuff. I think she is thrilled to be back at her college. She has a very nice dorm mate this time around. She is organized, clean and sweet as can be! So much better then last year room mate. Whitney said they will be studying together. I have a good feeling about this year being better.

Mary, congratulations on the new job. Perfect for you! How much fun to enjoy book reading with children. Your grandchildren sound like they are enjoying some quality time with t her grandmother too.

Kerry, becarefull out in that hot sun. Glad you stopped and hydrated. It's easy to not be aware you need water when you want to get the job done.

Off to bed it's been a long day on the road. We just went up and had a quick lunch. Then unloaded the car and traveled back home. I gave Whitney lots of hugs before leaving. Miss her. :(

Her attitude to me is good-she'll sit and talk with me and sometimes even curl up with me. She just has a serious problem with unplugging form the phone and talking to others. We have some folks at church who will really make her speak which is funny to watch. I enjoy having her around though Larry could live without them. He and Cheyenne really clash-they both like to voice their own opinions and they are usually opposite.

I am totally beat after doing the mowing-way too much time outside today though the temperatures didn't seem too bad while I was out mowing. I'm trying to get some extra water in now.

This is just the indoor pool, Kerry. The outdoor pool is bigger! That's usually for the more serious swimmers, even in the winter!

Maybe you could 'let' your granddaughter stay home alone while her mom sleeps instead of YOU finding things for her to do. Might improve her attitude towards you!! Hope so! You do so much for your grandchildren, it's a shame she's not more appreciative of your hard work.

My pool is 6 lanes, Kerry. The far lane has at least 2 kid swim lessons going on all the time, the next 2 or 3 lanes will be for swimmers who, like your old place, are not really good about not splashing, and the last 2-3 lanes are for water aerobics. We are never allowed to have more than 3 lanes for our classes.

It sounds like you are still so busy with church and grandchildren! My car needs a wash badly but every time I think about it I get side tracked and it's now rained for 3 days straight!

I went to water aerobics and was rained/thundered out after 40 minutes. I have had a lazy day doing nothing but watching tv and playing computer games!! Now I'm off to church myself!

Good afternoon! It is hot out there and I have spent 4 hours out in it. The youth were having a car wash fundraiser. We didn't have anyone for about 45 minutes and then a church member came along followed by another then we got three right together. We were surprised the one work truck sat and waited so long but they did and were super friendly. We gave them some cookies for waiting. Another work truck came through and that guy did most of the washing on his truck. I guess he just needed a place to do it. lol He did make a nice donation. I am in need of a shower but since the guy has been to mow the two neighbors' yards I want to go out and mow the front before getting that shower-I'm just going to wait a couple hours.

Our aqua classes just take the entire pool even if there are only a few people. I wouldn't letting swimmers use one lane (and we did at the last gym) but they don't tend to be real good at sharing and some are really sloppy swimmers and a lot of folks don't like being splashed in the face or their hair.

They keep track at my gym/pool, Karen, because they will open an extra lane according to how many people are in the pool. Sometimes we have 10, sometimes 40! I'm glad you had a chance to get in a visit with Maddie. Friends are so important!

I went to the gym and did a 30 minute treadmill routine. i'm on Cipro for the UTI and I'm not supposed to exercise 'strenuously.' I asked the doctor in my best 'Chandler from Friends' voice: do I LOOK LIKE I exercise strenuously?? She laughed! But it can cause your tendons to have problems so I was careful. I will go to water aerobics today and tomorrow and possibly on Monday and Tuesday.

I need to start looking at my 'wedding clothes' for next week's vacation. I want to just take one suitcase. I need to let the constable know of my plans, too. They do a vacation watch drive-by every day!

Congrats on getting that job. I know you'll enjoy it. I did water aerobics today with the same leader we had yesterday in Silver Sneakers which means we got an extra 10 minutes. After a shower and some time in the sauna where I discovered a class member lives across the street from the house we rented when we moved here. I noticed as I was leaving that Mattie was still by the pool so I went back to chat. I. wanted to make sure she got the count right for class. I saw her trying to count people as they were leaving and I always count when I'm in a class. I learned to do that because the class leaders don't always get it so ask if a member will. I also know at this location it wouldn't take too many small classes for them to drop it. There were 5 more than she counted. We talked for a while which was nice. Just having my husband to talk to can get old. Now I'm bored-can you tell?

I'm glad you got to the class today, Kerry. I love the Tu/Th 90 minute class but with babysitting, I was only able to go once this week. It poured all day yesterday and today and I'm tired from running/crawling/etc. with the girls. I will probably go to the gym for the treadmill and weights tomorrow, then water aerobics over the weekend.

I got a call from the Mother's Day Out director...I have the part time job of Story Lady and Hugger/sub for next year. I think I can handle 2 days a week for a 9-2 slot and only twice a month for some months!

Good evening everyone. I did Silver Sneakers this morning. Mattie runs the class about 70 minutes which I love. Some folks leave at the end of 60 but most of us finish it out. On the way home I stopped at Bealls to see if they had any blouses I had to have. I headed to Wal-Mart then and did the shopping I needed to get done. A big storm flew through just as we headed out for dinner and ended as we got home. Home for the evening now.

I hope Whitney will be okay, Marylou. I know you'd rather have her home after her first year away. Sorry school is so hectic. I am enjoying retirement but just turned in paperwork for my church's Mother's Day Out program to be the Story Lady once a month and to sub. I talked iwth the director today and I have the job. It's only Tu/Th so no matter what, it won't be too much to handle a few days a month.

I babysat yesterday and stayed overnight. What a delight those girls are! We had a lazy morning watching their favorite shows and cuddling before I came home. I will go to Maryland next week for a family wedding. I am more than busy!!

Mary Lou, I think if she really wants it Whitney will make it work.

I have had a very lazy day due to not feeling great this morning. Hopefully tomorrow will be better and I can get to the store and Silver Sneakers in the morning.

Hi girls, I'm dropping in to say hello! It's been a crazy week starting with last Saturday. My daughter decided she was going back to Virginia for school this year. Nothing I could do to stop her. She decided to work while she attends and make up the money instead of loans. I'm praying she can handle it.

I'm very tired after a long day at school. Working in media tomorrow. Hope everyone is doing well. I enjoyed my short visit with Diana and her sweet husband Bob. They are such a nice couple. We had great conversation and the evening slipped away quickly.

Mary hope you are enjoying retirement with your family. Kerry hope all is well for you and your family. Pam I enjoy reading your Facebook post. I hear Sue is on a cruise in Alaska! Wow, I sure wished my life had some adventure. Holding on to my dreams! :)

Well my friends I'm about ready to jump into my bed for a good night sleep. Take care all. Hugs.

Well, we made the ride there and back safely . We got taco salads at Cleo's which is in what used to be a small house off on what used to be a side street. It's now a 2 lane road with semis running up and down it. Larry ordered 2 small salads and I have enough left over to last 3 or 4 days. I saw another guy's medium-not sure if it was a lot bigger or just spread out more though it was piled pretty high on that plate. The taco salad is their specialty though they do have other salads and subs. On the way home he said "wait til you see what tomorrow's lunch is". hmmm....

It's nice you were able to gift the boys with the vehicles and hope they run well. I also see most kids don't take care of maintenance on cars they didn't have to pay for. It just comes at the bottom of the 'needs to be done' list. I'm sure Dave took good care of them, though, so they should last a while.

I need to take mine in for a 30,000 mile checkup, Kerry. I gave Chris my Mitsubishi Montero Sport in 2010 when I bought my CR-V and I gave Greg Dave's Ford F150 a few months after he died. I know they have had things go wrong but I doubt they do regular maintenance. I have replaced the battery on the Honda but haven't had any other trouble. But I do need to get it checked out.

I have an eye doctor appointment in a bit.

Happy day to all!

I'm glad you were all able to get together and enjoy the memories.
I guess I'm driving my car up to the north side so my husband can have some work done on his so it's drop came off lunch and back home with a repeat in reverse tomorrow.

I'm glad to hear that the app is good, Pam. I read the reviews and they were terrible so I didn't download it! I might try it. I guess if it doesn't work I can just delete it.

I'm glad you had a good church day and good lunch, Kerry. Sharing with friends is always nice.

My kids and Dave's sister came for dinner tonight and we had a really nice time for Dave's birthday. We had a tiny toast of Jack Daniel's in his honor during dessert, too. I'm glad I had everyone over.

I downloaded it but haven't noticed that part if it's even available for the Samsung. I'll have to check it out.

The snacks went over well this morning and after church we wound up at a restaurant waiting for a table when another couple from church came in so Larry went to the reservation table and told them the new couple could sit with us. That got us a table really fast since we were willing to share and no one else waiting offered to do that. We are definitely going to remember that one!! I've done nothing else other than going back and getting the money counted and deposited. An exciting day, right?

Has anyone downloaded the new Sparkpeople app? I did on my IPad and it does the most amazing thing. When you are recording your food it has a place that can scan the bar code on food and then tell you exactly how many calories are in it per serving plus give all the nutrient values. I went in my pantry and scanned a whole bunch of stuff, so I can attest to it working. I had the old app but this one was not an update to it, I had to download it fresh from the App Store, it was free. Can you tell I am excited, lol. I must lead a pretty dull life. Oh well just wanted to share this.

I selected fruit and Larry selected cinnamon rolls. I should have picked up something else in case a lot of people decide to come through the hall. Hoping we can cut the rolls in half-I didn't check to see how big they are. Oh well. What will be will be.

Such a noble cause, Kerry. I hope it will be something people respond to. As for church snacks, fruit is a great option and some granola bars, yogurt, etc. might be easy choices.

I just got a text from my former teaching partner. She wants to have dinner. School inservice has started and I'm sure she is beside herself. It will be good to catch up again with her. I went grocery shopping and will now do housework. I totally forgot, as I was getting into my swimsuit, that the pool is closed for maintenance until Monday!

Okay, I went to the meeting and the name is ReThreaded. I liked it on my facebook page. What I didn't know about this group/company is they are making money to get women/girls out of the sex slave industry. It's very difficult to get out once you're in and often if you have a child that child has no way of getting out, either. One of the speakers today was a young man talking about his porn addiction and how he was one of the "feeders" of the trade. He now is an employee and speaker for the group.

Okay, now I need to get some lunch and find something to take to church in the morning for snack time. Fresh fruit and ?? coffee cake, donuts, snack bars??

That's a great sounding organization, Kerry. I need to start sewing soon! To remake things for others is wonderful.
