Me, too,Rumbmel. I want spring! Today it is sunny! It is still chilly and more rain is expected tomorrow. I am still pricing books for the home school sale in May. What a job it has turned into. I have home schooled since 1993 and finally my DD went to public high School. So... I have stuff from K-12 and lots of extras! My kids loved to read and they loved science. Great memories as I sort through the mountain of books!

The kids are wanted to go to the zoo today. They so want Spring weather for good instead of this wishy washy stuff. I get the chill in my bones and it's hard to get warm. Ugh!

Hope all enjoy some sun today!

Cold and windy today. The boys went camping but gave up and headed home late this afternoon. It is still raining off and on here. My living room is full of teenage boys playing video games. They brought home all there camping snacks--pop tarts, cookies, and marshmallows. I will make them pizza later. I wish I had the metabolism of a teen boy.

It was 75 today and sunny. Yes, I love seeing deer and other animals. It is amazing that they are still here because the city has expanded to our back door. I miss the farm fields that surrounded us. I really don't like the cold much. Why do I live in Illinois? I should move down south! But, you know what they say around here, " If you don't like the weather wait for tomorrow!". I hope you don't get flooding, Prairiecrocus.

SHERRY257 - That must have been such a delight to see 7 deer, on your walk !
Your weather sounds nice, too !
We are still sitting at temperatures below the freezing point. We aren't complaining
TOO much, because we do not want a quick melt, and then, a flood !
I live close to two rivers ; I'm in no rush to get warm weather !

Well, every time I leave home I see runners getting in their training for the Illinois marathon. I will go and cheer them on! I am thinking about volunteering --they still need 190 volunteers to meet their minimum.

Are you tired of the snow? We are well into spring with the daffodils and leaves and green grass that is about ready to be mowed. Later this week it will be 76 and I need to find my summer clothes! Soon it will be time to plant lettuce and peas. We have a hawk that sits on our pool fence all winter. He has kept the rabbit population in check. I suppose he will disappear this summer--the time I will need him most! Rabbits love my garden! Last year they ate all my marigolds. Oh, well, I need rabbit fencing and that is a project because you have to bury the fencing or they will burrow under it. My mom always thought rabbits were so cute until they ate the flowers!

I saw 7 deer on my walk today!

Yes, we went to the Museum of Science and Industry and saw the Body display this weekend. It was awesome. Back to visiting colleges next weekend. It is warm today but windy. My daughter is wearing short shorts. I remember the teen years when I wore them but it would mortify her to hear that! The trees have buds! I can't hardly wait for leaves!

Sunshine and nippy at 45 and windy. I am glad my hair is attached. We are seeing a lot of Illinois this month as we tour UIUC, SIU, EIU. and NWU with our son. It is a wonderful adventure.

The are predicting 60 in the greater Chicago area today but it is overcast and wet and dirty with all the melting snow. I almost took the day off but the hubby reminded me that I can't garden or do anything, so I will save my time. Still, how nice not to freeze!

I, too, am in Central IL, Did you see that 60 degrees is in the forecast this week?! Wahhoo!

Welcome aboard!

I understand about the occasional indulgence. I love Mexican food, so I want to be able to enjoy it when my body craves it. However, I then must be able to counteract it in other ways. I eat fairly healthy foods that I love and also exercise in ways that I enjoy, too. Balance is the key.

Good luck, you can do it because you are worth it!!

I've taken to calling it the "New Antartica." The snow drifts and snow piles from plowing are ridiculous. You have to pull out half way in the road to see if there are any cars coming. And now the temperatures as subzero at night and into the single digits during the day so we will have this snow for a while. Gotta love it! Hope you moved somewhere a little warmer

I am new to this team, and I love SP. I have probably tried every diet that has ever been invented. Remember the "Grape fruit diet?" I have decided that I am sick of dieting, I don't want to eat pre-measured card board pizzas from JC or anyone else. I am going to eat real, whole, nutritious food, just less of it. I will eat less by measuring what I eat and if I want brie and redwine on Friday night, I will have some, I will just know how much it cost me calories. I am looking forward to great ideas to eat well and lose weight.
