But Kerry, you fell 10 days ago, have no energy, and feel bad! Go and find out if you broke a rib or something!!

I keep thinking about seeing the doctor but just get tired of going there. Makes me feel old.

I do, too, Sue! I was so proud of myself yesterday...only a planned snack of popcorn and nothing else for me! I ate smaller portions and lots of vegetables yesterday and had sooooo much water. I expected a New Me today and didn't bother weighing. That will come on Sunday. But keep trying. That's all we can do!

I hope you can help the bf/whatever/babydaddy find out what's wrong with his eye, Kerry. That's scary. I think ou should go to the doctor. You might have broken or bruised a rib. You ahve been in pain for a long time now! Just my 2 cents!!

Donna, the rain does that here in Houston, too. One minute it's just a hard rain and all of a sudden you have a flooded street. Don't dance any more!!

I did the 90 minute water aerobics class and am tired. Several people said the same thing when we got out of the pool: Let's go home and take a nap, lol!! I will do a couple of errands and continue clearing up my messes here at the house!

I hope all the storms stay at a minimum today. We may be seeing some rain here in MD this afternoon, but I don't think it's supposed to amount to much. Donna, you storm really sounds like a big one. Saw pictures of the hail somewhere in your area. Looked like winter.

My son, Tim, did his first year at our local community college. He was not happy about that, but in the long term it worked well for him. He admits not that he needed that year at home to decided what direction he wanted to go.

Why is it that when I work extra hard to lose weight I ended up gaining. I've drank so much water I think I'm going to float away.

Flooding that fast is scary but normal, I guess, when the ground is dry.

It is funny because it started raining with big plops of raindrops at 4:30 when half the office gets off. I was outside dancing in the hail a little later and someone held the door shut when I came in. And within 15 minutes we were flooding and not celebrating anymore.

The restaurant is only half a mile from our house so we just stopped on the way home. Once I got home the tiredness really hit. I am skipping water aerobics as I just have no energy and the pain from my fall 10 days ago has really located in the chest area which kind of limits some of the arm motion. I also think the head rest in the car was in the wrong position and might be what is bothering my upper back. I just really want it all to go away.

We, or probably just Larry, will be taking our daughter's boyfriend/fiancť (whatever he is) to the imaging center today-he somehow smashed his eye or got bit b something? and it was horribly swollen. The swelling is going down but they want a CT scan to make sure nothing else is wrong and Trish is working so... We have nothing else today so it's no big deal and it will give Larry a chance to spend some time with him.

Diana, hope all is well with the baby and the mom. I remember back labor-didn't realize I was having it until my sister called and I mentioned the pain. She made me concentrate on it and then told us to get to the hospital. lol

Hope everyone has a great day and the storms don't get too bad, Donna.

Kerry, you are always on the go with the grandchildren! That's a very long time to be in the car, then still have enough energy to meet friends for dinner! I can only seem to do one thing per day, lol. I hope you can rest up today.

How sweet that Whitney made dinner for all of you, Marylou. I'm sure you'll enjoy having her home this coming school year. We made our boys stay home freshman year after Cherilyn didn't do anywhere nearly as well as we expected for her freshman year away. They all 3 ended up doing just fine but it's a fine line between 'woo hoo: I'm away from home' and 'I will continue my good schoolwork!' It saves a bunch too, going to community college!

Donna, I saw on the news the terrible rain and hail storms. I'm glad you're okay and hope today will be cooled off but not more messes for you!

Diana, please keep us informed about the baby! I know you are anxious! The dinner theater sounds like fun. We did that a few times and maybe one day I'll find something like that around here!

I went to my Zumba/circuit class last night and will go to water aerobics in a while. Another busy day of cleaning and clearing!!

Kerry I was in bed before you wrote your post last night! I was exhausted. My sleep the night before was all messed up. I just woke so I got 9 hours last night! I guess the temperature thing is a good idea. I find travelling tiring these days.

Marylou how nice of Whitney to cook. It would be nice to have a wife sometimes wouldnít it? Smart choice for Whitney to go to community college.

Donna hope you donít get more rain today. The worst I think is losing power.

No cigar on the baby yet. They gave DIL something for her back pain and sent her home. She has an appointment today again though. Sounds to me like it is getting close. Tonight we are going to ďdinner theaterĒ with DB which means hot dogs and a movie. Bad food but fun. We want to see the silly Disney movie Inside Out. Looks very clever.

Good morning girls, it's going to be a hot day! It's been beautiful for a few days, but now soaring into the nineties. At least not in the three digits like a week ago.

Donna, the rain storms this year have been extreme . Sorry you lost power, that makes it even more unnerving. My dd will be staying home for this year and going to our community college. It will be good on her pocket book. Paying student loans for years to come would not be good. This way she still gets her college degree but not stressing over money.

ML: So nice of DD to fix dinner. It means a lot to have someone else cook on a work day. Is she home for good now?

Kerry: What a good grandma to do all that for GS.

We had a huge monsoon today. 2.5 inches of rain in one hour. We had flash floods everywhere and I came home to no power that was off for almost 5 hours. Then the monsoon rolled back in. It was a long evening with no tv, internet, lights, phones, etc. All is well that ends well.

Oh Mary what a scare! I'm glad to hear bruises not broken, and I know you are relieved too. Good to hear you are healing and better.

Diana, I'm happy to hear you are feeling better. Bob sounds like he is better knowing he doesnt have to drink so much of that awful liquid! Hope he is doing well this evening with the procedure completed.

My daughter made dinner this evening. A crock pot meal with spaghetti, chicken, veggie, cream soup ....casserole. It was yummy, nice to come home to a meal after work. :)

Kerry, you did a lot today. Getting a child to camp can be very exhausting. Enjoy your evening and rest.

Good evening. It is about bed time for me. I am exhausted from about 5 hours in the car today but we got the kid to summer camp. We had to stand in line for about 45 minutes before registration actually started but once he got his name tag it was out the door for a temperature test (can't have sick kids there!) and a trip to the car for the one paper he actually needed to turn in for registration but he handed that in, answered a couple questions and it was done. I did walk across the grounds to see his cabin then back to the car to head home. My eating was not good- my regular cereal with milk for breakfast, a parfait from McDonald's when DH decided it was breakfast time (that was 3 hours after I had mine), after registration I needed a drink so we stopped at another McDonald's and I got my drink plus an ice cream cone. We only paid for one but the gal made one for Larry, too. As we were driving home he mentioned our once a month Monday dinner with friends. It had started as a 6 pm dinner but since the numbers dwindled it has been moved up to 5:30 so we can all get the senior special so we were at least 30 minutes late. We got our salads as they got their dinners but that was okay. The salad was the only thing I had but at least it had egg and cheese for a little protein. I am really ready to head to bed now. I'm exhausted from doing nothing!!

Exciting news, Diana! I am looking forward to hearing the outcome of the doctor visit. So glad the colonoscopy went well, too. 3 small bottles is SO much better than a gallon of the old stuff!!

Mary I still have a little dry cough but doing much better! Bob had 3 small bottles of Mag Nitrate I think. It wasnít bad at all.

Kerry kids do love texting. I hate to text but do it. Some of my friends ask why and I tell them if I donít I donít hear from my kids or grands! I hope you feel better soon.

Marylou glad to hear you have work!

Well, ladies I am waiting to hear from DS. Our DIL is due mid month but is dilated a little and is having back pains. They are waiting for her doctor. Maybe Iíll see Eleanor soon!

It was right after a heavy rain and I was taking mail out to the mailbox. I slipped and went down on the bad knee, sliding on the bad ankle! I was bruised and sore for a couple of days and am okay but it scared me! It happened in an instant, too.

I'm again heading out for the second part of my job. :) afterschool care.

Safe travel to the camp, Kerry. I hope you do go see the doctor. You've been down and out for a while now. My ankle and knee throb a little now and then from my fall a couple of weeks ago but I am fine for the most part.

Marylou, I would never forget my morning coffee, lol! I hope you will have an unrushed day today. I had a rude awakening with my neighbors dogs once again. I am cleaning and clearing again and making more progress. I machine washed some fabric I bought yesterday at Joann's and was disappointed to find that a lot of the little silver 'sprinkles' washed away from the front of the fabric. It did say 'hand wash and drip dry' but so often things I buy can be washed. I even did it in the prewash short cycle. I hope it will be worth the effort to make it now!

Good morning,

A quick hello then I'm off to grocery shop then work. Kerry be safe on your drive to your grandsons camp. I'm not a fan of rushed mornings. I had one of those last Friday taking my Dd to meet her friends for a beach weekend. I was rushed out the door forgetting half of my routine including my morning coffee! Not good being that it wakes me up.

The fit bit sounds similar to what Dd has. It counts calories and steps and she views it on her smart phone. I'm not sure of the brand name.

Hope all is well, rushing out. Hope to restart my food plan. So wish to drop some more weight. Ten pounds down but not moving down the scale like I hoped for.

I'm trying to rush through some of my emails because we are leaving in a few minutes to drive our grandson to summer camp. I have to find out who is picking him up next Saturday. I would be further along if the kid would stop texting me. LOL It's about a 2 1/2 hour drive each way.

I may make a couple doctor appointments Monday, though if I'm still hurting I may just walk in. It seems like the pain is just travelling all over though I was able to sleep well last night for the first time since the fall.

Guess I better get moving.

Happy Monday! Diana, I'm so glad you're feeling better. Did Bob take pills this time? I absolutely had drinking that stuff. I need to have a colonoscopy at some point this year, I think. I need to call and make several doctor's appointments soon. I dread weighing in. I'm 11 pounds heavier this summer than last!!

Kerry, those fires are scary. I hope at some point all our weather just evens out and we will be 'normal, whatever that really is! My Zip doesn't work in water. Like Diana, I've washed mine and thank goodness it will dry out!!

I will do some more clearing out of my messes today and have my Zumba Circuit class tonight.

Mary I washed my Fitbit. I took out the battery and let it dry and it still works. Maybe try a new battery.

Kerry DH does have the newer prep. I remember when we used to be faced with that huge jug of stuff. It ended up where I just couldnít drink any more. I always get a good sleep in when I go for one. We have a good doctor. That is a lot of fires! I hope you donít get more.

Well, I feel better tonight. My cough is lessening. I am less tired but did a few chores that didnít take much energy. I have to be up and ready by 7:30 tomorrow to take DH to his doctor.

Diana, I hope your husband has the newer and easier prep.

I have though of getting a fit bit but also thought about a new body bugg which I used when really losing my weight. It also syncs everything together but the only thing I can wear in the pool is the heart rate monitor with the band around the chest. It didn't count steps but did count the calories burned. I may need to do something to give me a bit more encouragement to keep moving.

We are having thunderstorms rolling through since about 1:45 this afternoon. It stopped just before I had to leave to count money, then started back up when I got home. I think we're on our 5th band of it now. It's complete with thunder lightning and lots of rain but we do need it. It should make sure that all 27of the forest fires in our county are out so long as the lightning doesn't start more.

Enjoy your Sunday evening.

Happy Sunday morning to everyone! I 2nd Diana on Fitbit's great customer service. I thought I'd lost mine when I had Chris and Ashley's wedding reception at my house last Spring Break. It was on my pants pocket rather than on my bra like I usually wore it and I emailed them. I had to email my receipt but they sent me a new one free of charge even though I lost it! Then a week or so later I found it underneath one of the cushions on the chairs outside!! It was wet from the sprinklers so I'm sure it's dead but I was so pleased with them sending me a new one.

I slept very well last night and will continue to clean and clear today. I made a lot of progress yesterday and finally feel like I can get this job done!

Happy day to all,
Mary

Mary I am pretty cheap so I donít know how long I will go. It will depend on how well we do and if SIL continues to go. I need to shake things up so Iíll give it a try again. But, I will use all the wonderful tools SP has to offer.

Kerry I looked at the picture. I could manage that I guess. LOL. I think we need rituals. Coming to SP is important to me because it makes me feel I havenít totally lost hope!

Pam I was laughing so hard over your cat story! I can picture it in a cartoon. I hope Jenson heals quickly. I like my Fitbit. You can link it to your SP exercise. It has a little dohiggy that plugs into your computer and every time you sit down to the computer it registers your steps for the day. I got mine on Amazon. Iím sure Fitbit has a website. When I first got mine and went to Russia I somehow managed to lose it going in and out of security. When I got to Russia I was upset because I really wanted to get going on my steps. I emailed them and they sent me a new one to my boss in the states who brought it to me. They didnít charge me. Then my DH ran over his with a mower and I sent a picture of it and they sent him a new one free! I think they will give you a new one once if you have a valid reason for losing it. They have very good customer service. It is good because it makes you aware of how sedentary you are. I was walking 10,000 steps a day in KZ and it helped. Give it a try.

Well, today I wonít have to cook for DH. Prep for colonoscopy. LOL. I shouldnít laugh. Not a fun day for him. I am still tired from being ill. I suspect it will be at least a week to recover fully. Hope you all have a wonderful Saturday!

Wow, that WAS a lot of drama for so early in the morning, Pam. Sorry for the rude awakening, too. Fitbit has all kinds of pedometers. I have the basic Zip, it's about 60 dollars and you get it at Target, Walmart, etc. or online at Fitbit.com. They have many different ones and some record your sleep habits as well as movements throughout the day. The website is like Spark...you can log all your activities and food, etc. Sue showed me when we were together in April that if you have the app on an iPhone you can lay your Zip on it and it automatically records all your daily data!! Tada! I wear mine every day even though I don't always get my steps in. I think it's a good tool to let you see what you do in a day's time.

I read about you ladies wearing these "fitbit" thingys. What is it and where do I get one. I don't think I walk around very much (more standing and sitting than anything), but I'm willing to try if it kind of forces me to walk a bit more (it's probably cheaper than a dog)

Talking about pets, last Thursday I made a Monday morning appt for Jenson to get trimmed. He has so many lumps in his fur. Jack got trimmed back in April, so he's okay. Then night before last I was rudely awaked by a massive cat fight. For the only time in months, I couldn't get Jenson in, so I left him outside for the night. He's such a sucky and definitely more lover than fighter (he's french you know), but man when I charged outside (at 4:40am I might add) it looked like a cartoon fight - a round ball hissing and spitting with the occasional arm or leg sticking out. I almost laughed, but being butt naked except for a t-shirt, I was less than amused. Fortunately it was still mostly dark. I managed to scare off the intruder, get Jenson into the mudroom, but when I tried to get him into the kitchen, Jack went ballistic. Another hissing and spitting session (from Jack, not Jenson) He must have smelled the other cat, blood or vicious hormones, either way, he wanted to fight Jenson. I tried to move him and he went ballistic with me! At this point, I'd had enough. I'd been rudely awakened, charging around the outside butt naked stopping a cat fight, I was tired, and Jack getting hissy with me was the final straw. I didn't care if the cat "terminator" was outside waiting. I took the broom, and bashed him up the butt until he went outside, hissing and spitting all the way.....sigh.....why do these things happen to me? emoticon

Anyway, back to the vet. He/she is going to have to check Jenson out for more than a trim. (he lost a lot of fur during the battle, I'll tell ya). The right side of his face is a bit swollen and he's limping and sore. I'll bet that boy exercised muscles he didn't know he had. You know what that fat little furball looks like. LOL! Hopefully it won't be too expensive.

Well, that's my drama for the week. I could cheerfully have lived without it.

Now.....about that fitbit?

God bless,

Pam from SW Ontario

It was just a little shark, Diana. LOL I do have a picture posted in my last blog. I make sure to come back here every day because of the friendship, too. I try to keep up with at least the exercise one another couple of teams. Sure wish that would help the weight drop!!

I hope you do rest up and take things slowly, Diana. You were so sick and it lasted a long time! I will review all my WW info in the next week or so but maybe I'll start back to listing my food on Spark. That was a good thing and it's free! I don't think I would pay for WW again since I 'know' what I'm supposed to be doing but I need to do more of the 'good stuff' in order to lose again. We can do it!!

Sue I know I have not been concentrating on what makes Spark People work. Now I am afraid I have friends here and often come for the friendship. I need to get back to that plus losing weight! One step at a time! I too will put my Fitbit on. May not walk but Iíll get back to wearing it! Maybe if we bedazzle it we would do better! Granddaughter had a virus but had recovered pretty well by the time we left.

Donna I hope your kayaking goes well today. Now you should be able to complain about those boys and not have repercussions from your old boss! I am finally home and relaxing for a while.

Kerry petting a shark is not on my bucket list! There is something to be said for routine! I am glad to be home from vacation. It almost killed me!

Papasnap the ladies on this page are aged to perfection! Thanks for stopping in! Iím Diana and an OK transplant. Lived all over the United States and retired from Alaska. Travel often and quilt. Spend lots of time with grandchildren.

Marylou we are not having rain here lately. We may just get that shed done eventually. I hope the roof repairs are done soon. It is always hard waiting for a project to be done. So you are finally putting on spectacles! Welcome to the club! Iím putting off my new glasses because even with insurance I will have to fork out $400 to get a new pair.

We got home last night from our tiring vacation. We have vowed to do nothing today.

Marylou, finding a new eye doctor and getting new glasses is on my list. I want to do all my doctor appointments before I turn 65. I signed up for Medicare Plan F this week for hospitalization and doctor visits, lab work, screenings, etc. But I declined the dental/vision/hearing because it would have been more than I think I want to pay. I will have to investigate that. I see the doctor at Walmart talking to clients all the time. Maybe I'll stop by one day. I would love to get sunglasses, too. I have progressives for driving but find when I wear them into the grocery store, for instance, I have that 'weaving' feeling and am not quite steady. In the car, I'm fine. I like the shape of my current glasses so maybe I could choose new frames for sunglasses and use the old frame for new lenses? We'll see! I hope you can get the new roof. I hate the thought of all the work that my house needs right now. I just had the sprinkler guy come out and fix the heads that the yard crew destroyed last month. It's always something!

Welcome, Papasnap! I'm Mary, from Houston. I just retired from 30 years of teaching and am trying to get my house in order so I can downsize next year. So much to think about!

Pam, you can trade weather....it's been in the high 90's all week. Lots of rain in and around but not at my house...at least not yet. How crazy that it's so chilly at the end of June! I'm sorry you're at work today. Hopefully you can get the shipping done and take the rest of the weekend off.

I'm going to water aerobics at noon. I spent 2 hours cleaning up my craft room and tossing, rearranging stuff. I should have been working in the office but that was more fun! I am a Master Procrastinator. At least I was somewhat productive!

Welcome, PAPASNAP.

Marylou, I have been picking out glasses for about 45 years-mom did it the other 8 years or so and boy did I get some styles then!! I mostly wear contacts but I still have to get new frames every few years and it is hard. I try to stay away from the big name frames-I hate giving rich people more money when I need it myself.

I got half the yard mowed but it's too hot to do the rest. The mowing didn't bother my chest because it's all pushing and pulling but any bending to pick something up is a killer even with a sports bra. I think I need a binder. I am just cooling down now and not doing anything the rest of the day.

Good morning miladies! :)

What is with this weather? Here it is near the end of June, and our temp today is 15! (59F). and raining like all get out. Yesterday we had the a/c on because it was so warm and humid and today I'm wearing a sweatshirt! ugh.

PAPASNAP - emoticon

Our little 50's club here is a fun one (however, we all do tend to be on facebook more often than here these days). I'm Pam, and I'm from SW Ontario, the canuck of the group. LOL! And - you are 100% correct. We are all aged to perfection! LOL!

Well, I'm sitting at my work computer (yes on a Saturday!), so I'd better get something done here.

God bless,


Pam from SW Ontario

Good morning girls!

I'm ready for a little down time. It was a crazy week. Trying hard to get a new roof but the rain is pushing the schedule out.

Whitney went to the beach with friends. I spent yesterday with dh looking for a good deal on eye glasses. I found mine at Wal-Mart. I hope they will be good enough for a first time eye glass wearer. Price was excellent with my insurance got everything including transitional. I think the frames are not designer but they look good with the latest fashion from what I was told. Haha! Let's hope I look ok since it was my dh and the eye doctor's oppion. I'm not feeling a hundred percent in like on the design.

I'm not sure if I will adapt well to wearing progressives. I tried wearing them two years ago and ended up after three weeks taking them back. I actually got sick from wearing them. My dh got a real stunning designer pair "Trump" for 60 percent off at BJ wear house. He has everything loaded on his glasses too but not as good a deal as I got at Wal-Mart. The sales person jokingly said Trump is personally visiting everyone who buys his glass wear when he visits nc. I laughed and said it would be nice if he just gave us the glasses for free with all that money he has. :) haha!

Exciting time I had picking out glasses as you can see it was getting far too complicated but finally done!

Kerry did you have a good time on your vacation? I would love to spend a few days on the beach. Maybe in August I'll try a weekend getaway.

Everyone enjoy your day!

I'm finally ready to clean my house. :)

I'm glad you got back into your old routine, Kerry. Thanks for the Baltimore info. I wil just have to leave it to my sister and BIL to steer us away from the riot areas, lol. But I will try to be a good backseat driver!

I brought dinner to my friend and saved a small portion for myself. I am on the couch with TLC and HGTV. I have resolved some 'Mary Issues' that have plagued me this week, stopped by the chapel at church 3 days in a row---to ask for intervention, then to say a resounding 'thank you'---and am ending a week of sort of turmoil in a good way!

Mary, I hope you enjoy yourself. I also love when Garmin sends you off in a wrong direction and ours has done it several times and we have found places we never wanted to see and left quickly! One of our other church counters is from Baltimore and says the rioting area isn't really near anything you would be wanting to visit but I kind of feel the same way.

Today was a get back to normal day-7 am coffee, read the newspaper, water aerobics and then had lunch with our youngest daughter and her boyfriend. I gave her a little onesie from the aquarium that I thought was cute.

The grandkids' other grandfather died a couple years ago-too much smoking, beer, etc. He was our age. They didn't live real close to the kids at the time but our son-in-law's brother wanted to be closer so when this house went up for rent Sarah told him about it, he rented it for himself and his mom. Even being that close the kids don't spend a lot of time down there but more than they ever did before and GS helps with mowing the yard. It does come in real handy for them taking care of Sarah and Shane's dogs and the kids when we are gone.

I need to finish my sparking here so maybe I can pay attention to the movie my husband has rented.

To be honest Mary, Baltimore really doesn't have much going on besides the Aquarium, Inner Harbor & Fells point (shops and food on the waterfront) and Fort McHenry (of Star Spangle Banner fame). Here's some info on Longwood Gardens and the Dupont Mansions: www.visitdelaware.com/things-to.../dupont-mansions-in-delaware/ . You will probably be closer to Philadelphia than to Baltimore or DC. I'm glad you accomplished everything yesterday and that your Atnea plan worked out. One less thing to worry about.

As for me, Step 2 in place. I have my FITBIT on. Now to just get moving.

Oh, Sue, I'm sure my sister and BIL haven't looked into anyting about where we'll be or how far away we are from anything. I don't know that Baltimore will be a place we'd want to explore with all the riots a month ago and 'day trips' that far would mean leaving early during morning traffic and getting back late. I wish they would have at least asked me if I wanted a 5 day trip....I didn't have a choice since my sister made all the arrangements. Maybe the Biltmore (I didn't do this in Word and will have to look back) and the garden would be a good suggestion. I hope the bride's mom has an idea of closer things to do. I will just have to 'chill' which is hard for me, lol!! Thanks for all the suggestions!!

Kerry, do the other grandparents who live equally close do anything with the grandkids? You and Larry seem to be pretty much with them all the time! I hope they will be able to take over some of the driving them around so you can get some rest. How is your body after the fall? Any better?

I got to my friend's hotel with no trouble last night. My GPS kept telling me to get off the freeway at every toll booth and I KNEW not to do that...that's why I get rattled using it at times. If I know a particular way and the GPS tells me to do something stupid that I know is wrong, I wonder where else it will lead me!! I was in very heavy but fairly steady (10 mph at times) traffic with a light rain. But I made it in the hour that the GPS told me, found where they wanted to go to dinner, and had a great visit. I'd not met her husband---he looked like James Taylor!! So cute! I got home right before 10:00 and went to bed. I have nothing planned for today except grocery shopping. Yay!

Good evening though if I don't hurry it up it will be morning. We made it home safely and managed to miss most of the rain. Our grandson is over at his other grandma's now-she and her youngest son live 8 houses down from Sarah and Shane and our two grandkids. Larry will pick them up at the airport in the morning and then they have to decide when to pick up their daughter. Larry and I will drive GS to summer camp on Monday since his parents will both be working. I posted a picture in my blog showing GS petting a shark-there were also rays that we petted. Gotta get some sleep now so I can wake up early for coffee.

Donna, sorry about your pool time and those oh so polite kids! I don't have to worry about kids in our pool at the gym which is nice but I do remember times at the public pool that were exactly like that.

Donna, sorry to hear those "boys" are still a bother at your pool. That makes for unpleasant swimming. And getting into with the "old boss" is not something you want to do. Hope you can arrange to swimming "around" them, either in time or location.

Mary, enjoy your dinner with your Guam friend. I'm sure you will find the location with ease, just enter it in your GPS. And Yes, I too wish I was going to be here while you are in MD for the wedding. Bad timing. You asked me before about sightseeing in the area. Base on the location you told me before, You will be a good hour plus from Baltimore and about 2.5hrs south to DC. Willmington, DE will be about 1 hr North of you and I'd suggest Longwood Gardens and the Dupont Mansion tour. Gettysburg, PA is at least and 1.5 hour west of your location. All are a long way for sightseeing. I would hope your host or hostess for this event would come up with some pleasant venues for their guests.

Today has been a dark and dismal day. No rain yet, but sky looks like it could open any minute. The kind of day where you want to curl up and sleep. Instead Hubby and I took the ferry across the Potomac to Leesburg, VA and spent the day at an Outlet Mall. Bought a few things but mostly just walked and window shopped.

Kerry, how sweet that you are expecting another grand-daughter. I'm sure the two older grands will love the new baby time. I found the young baby sitters to be the best, they actually want to spend time with the babies, not just take the $$$.

Diana, I hope all went well with your Granddaughter's appointment and that she is soon feeling better. Will you head home on Friday? I'm sure you are looking forward to your own bed and now extra people.

My goal for today was to reconnect with my Sparkpeople friends and supporters. Tomorrows goal is putting that FitBit back on and tracking my steps. - s

They BOTH are Big Losers, Donna, as is their mother, your old boss. I remember several years of you talking about how rude and disrespectful they both were and we all know the boss was terrible to you. Such a shame no one can do anything about it. Maybe someone's dad will say something to her one day.

Mary: We don't have lifeguards. To add insult to injury these boys belong to my last boss which I have no affectionate feelings for. .. or her bratty boys that are in and out of juvie all the time. Man, has that one boy packed on the weight. HE looks like he could be on Biggest Loser.

Donna, that boy and his brother have been 'pool bothers' for a long time. Such a shame. Doesn't the lifeguard say something to them? I hope you have fun kayaking with your friend.

I went through Google rather than the search bar on AOL and found a bigger map and an actual local phone number for the hotel. It is out of the way....at least it looks like that on paper. But I'm hoping that all will be fine travel-wise. It says with no traffic it should take me an hour to get there!!! And they will probably be at the hotel at 5:00. I will have to say a travel prayer of St. Christopher, lol!!

I swear I posted yesterday. Maybe the post button didn't work.

Kerry: Congrats on being a grandma again and it's a girl!. Enjoy your trip.

Mary: Good luck finding the hotel today. Take a deep breath and just go with it.

Diana: Hope you guys get home soon so you can relax and sleep in your own bed.

I made is swimming last night although it was a challenge with a 350 boy cannonballing into the pool. . . and it happened to be my last bosses sons. ( Had this problem before with them).

I am running out of time here. I gotta get to work. I am looking forward to a good friend coming in tomorrow and going kayaking with her Sat.

Sue, I love your picture! I reset mine from my new school picture but it's tiny for some reason. It's one of the chores Greg did for me...set up the scan wizard on the printer! I know the Alaskan cruise will be a fun trip. Too bad you won't be home since that's the week I will be in MD not too far from you!! One of these years...

Diana, it's terrible to be far away from home, hoping to enjoy your vacation, and get so sick! I'm glad you're on the mend, but so sorry other family members are now sick. I hope you won't be catching what the granddaughter has!!

Kerry, no, you didn't say what the sex was. Maybe Cheyanne (sp?!) will be a great babysitter! Has she decided to not live with you? You won't be the chief babysitter, will you?!! There goes retirement....

I have a busy day today and need to get going. I will start off with water aerobics, nails, and will try to find the hotel where a Spark friend/online friend from another diet group will be staying. We're supposed to meet for dinner!

Good Morning Friends. Every time I fall off the Sparkpeople Wagon the pounds go back on. Time to get back on track, catch up with my Born in 1950 friends, face the music and get these and many more pounds off.

Ocean 84, Hubby and I are taking that (or a similiar) Alaskan Adventure in August of this year. I'm getting excited. Like you, it is a dream trip for us.

Just a quick note. I'm in Dallas. We drove home from Florida where we spent our week at Disney. Well, guess who got pneumonia and had to go on a scooter? Made me feel old! I'm not used to being really sick. Wow it kicked my tail! Now my son and granddaughter and husband are all sick.

I am taking granddaughter to the doctor today since she is running a fever. What a mess!

Glad you're keeping up the exercise. I have been a slug other than the stairs in the cabin and the walking for hours today. Our daughter is talking about us all saving up for a year or more and then going to Hawaii together. I guess they would be our tour guides.

Did I mention Trish is having a girl. Can't remember if I did. Due date is still the third week in November.

Yes, my Greg is a procrastinator towards me at times but he always comes through! Free language lessons is right!! I'm just happy to have more than 1 channel there at all.

I'm so glad you've had a good vacation despite all the ills that have happened. I can't wait to take my granddaughters to the aquarium soon. I'm sure they will enjoy it. Cherilyn has has them in a little day camp for the last couple of days from 9-2. She's crammed so much into her mornings that she overdid it today: she was trying to bring all her groceries to the apartment all at once since she didnt have to hold any little hands and halfway into a breezeway she slipped on bird poop and dropped a 6 pack of wine bottles!! Four of the bottles broke, her brand new beige canvas shoes turned a lovely merlot color and wine splattered on her new 'birthday dress!' AND the broken glass cut her toe. She limped to the apartment and called for the janitor, quickly washed out her dress (it was fine, thank goodness) and put Oxyclean on her shoes. Nope...they turned blue. She had only worn them to her party and today. She was just livid! So she has decided not to try to overdo things and hopes she won't get overloaded tomorrow, the last day of camp! The girls have done okay, being that this is the first time away from her other than with the other grandparents or me!

I went to my Zumba/circuit class tonight and will go to water aerobics tomorrow.

Yea for Greg!! Plus you will.now have free language lessons. LOL. I know folks who have learned Spanish by watching those channels so why not Vietnamese. You will be able to eavesdrop on shoppers. Carol says she never tells anyone she knows Spanish she just enjoys listening.

We spent more than 3 hours meandering through the aquarium. GS sent 50 some pics to his dad. I wanted to swim this afternoon but we were stuffed with pizza so decided to rest for a bit plus my very pale GS would have fried. Now that we're able to get outside we have a thunderstorm rolling in. Bummer. Oh well, we'll be home tomorrow. It's been a pretty good week all in all.

Kerry, you've had a rough time on your recent vacations...you'll need a vacation to recuperate! I'm sorry so much has been a hassle. You try so hard to make evertyihng right for everyone else and you seem to come out on the wrong end of fun! I hope the rest of the trip will be better for you. Can you go to Walmart and get a stepstool to make getting into the bed easier?

Greg, my younger son, came over yesterday and helped me so much. He cleaned 3 little trees growing out of my front gutters and cleared all the debris from them. He put Google Chrome as my new brower on the computer, updated many 'things' and defragged it, and it took almost 6 hours to get my iPhone 'fixed.' I've been using his phone until Sprint unlocked his wife's so I can buy that one. Then after he got all of that transferred he fixed a little tv that I have in my craft room that Dave had in his office. I brought the tv upstairs after Dave died and used it---only got 1 local channel---but that stopped working last week! He fiddled with it, found that there was actually a way to change a bunch of stuff, and now I have about 10 local channels including 2 Vietnamese ones, lol! So if his inlaws come over and see my craft room, they can watch tv! So funny! I am so happy with all he did to help me-----but he was looking at my AT&T bill and when he saw that they were charging me for U-Verse 300 instead of the 200 that I had agreed to, he changed it! Now I'm getting MORE emails from them and I will have to call them again today and have another argument. Deep sigh!

I am feeling much better today and hoping tomorrow to be pain free. Our granddaughter went home to aunt Dawn's rather than come to the aquarium with us. She has her aunt in trouble because she wanted her hair dyed and mom didn't because it's not allowed in junior high which starts in 6 weeks. We had a nice visit with a former pastor- got to see their house, garden, bee hives, and pottery shed. She said everybody who visits has to take a piece home so we now have a bread plate and GS has a spoon holder for his mom. Tomorrow we will be visiting the aquarium.
