Good Afternoon to everyone. Going to an Oscar party this evening. This group of friend and family ( this is party of the Saturday Coffee Group) does this every year and every year I have never seen any of the movies nominated. We get ballots and I vote just to vote. Sometimes I even guess right. There is food, drink, popcorn and candy so I have to watch myself. Wouldn't miss it for a minute. emoticon

Good afternoon everyone. Happy day - got on the scale and went from 192 to 189.5. I cannot tell you how long it has been to be under 190. It snow about an inch over night, but the sun is shining and we are back in the melting mode. Not too much planned for today and will try to run all my errands tomorrow. Need to consolidate every and try to save on the gas. Prices went up 21 cent per gallon in about two hours yesterday. Thankfully I don't have to get out and drive everyday. Rather than going to the "Y", I may start going over to Rec Building and use the pool there. The only problem is that it is much smaller, but then I don't do lap swimming. Maybe with a smaller pool I could try to do some laps. There are other machines there that I could use. You ask, why hasn't she been doing this all the time. I like being with others and this will be only me and myself. In reading this back I sound like I am making a lot of excuses. It is tough to know yourself so well.

Good for you,Lois. You do have to speak up when you suspect something is not right. we are going in to dispute our cell phone bill this afternoon . They are charging an outrageous
Monthy price so we may have to change companies.

and this morning our reserved tickets arrived for our beloved Lady Bears basketball playoff games and they had us climbing way up to the second row from the top of the stadium. DH called them to say that was not acceptable because we are 86 and 84 years old and he has a hard time walking. They changed our seating back to the great seats we have now! So it does pay to speak up. emoticon

Hopefully I can leave the dental discussion behind me now. Just finished having a discussion with one of my credit card holder. I urge everyone to keep track of what is going on with any of your accounts and make sure you are all on the same page. I believed when I was told in January that the account was paid in full and got a surprise today with a new bill even with late fees. Thankfully it has been resolved, but only because I took the time to dispute the charge. My kids give me a bad time when I pursue different issues and just don't except something if I think it doesn't look right. Maybe it is an old age thing. Sometimes you may not like the answer, but at least you have voiced your concern. Have a good day.

Lois--Well that is certainly good news !

Now you can turn your attention to happier things like meal planning and getting your walking in! And I hope you are posting your accomplishments on the nutrition and fitness pages. When you see it in print it is a reward for a job well done.

Good News. Saw my dentist this morning and thankfully what I thought was a major problem was not especially at this time. I may have a dead tooth which is part of a nine tooth bridge, but for now everything is okay. I may in the future have to have a root channel on that tooth, but will cross that bridge when and if it happens. I was so relieved and thought why do we always jump to the conclusions. Thank you everyone for your positive thoughts emoticon

Thank you, Pat, I will. My online friends have been rallying around her and therapy dog, Alex. Alex shows signs of feeling better. He started water therapy and has shed about 20 lbs, so that makes it a little easier to bear his weight. He did weigh 145, then down to 135, and now 115! Big dog--a Bernese Mountain Dog.

My daughter had a lesion surgically removed from her tongue yesterday. (I can't imagine anything more painful.) The surgeon said it looked like fibroid or scar tissue not cancer. (Grateful and relieved about that.) He said these are very common and usually are the result of accidentally biting one's tongue while eating. The report will be back in about two weeks. She was quite a trooper.

Whatever the outcome,Lois, you can handle it. The important thing is to do what is best for your health. I spent a lot of time at the dentist office last summer and spent tons of money on my teeth. I have no dental insurance. but it had to be done.
so good luck. we will be thinking of you.

I really need some very positive thoughts coming my way today. To make a long story short I have had mega dental work done for many years and managed to keep ahead of any additional problems. But now I am at a point that something major may have to happen such as dentures. Call my dentist this morning and will see him tomorrow, but I really feel that this time there will not be a saving solutions. My hope is that tomorrow he will be able to solve the problem with out any extractions. I am trying to be positive, but maybe have to be realistic too.

Pat, I do remember back when I was working and had to get out and drive regardless of the weather. A couple of times everything shut down and then you had to try and make it back home or hunker down at work. Thank goodness for retirement!

Thinking of you Lois, Hope the snow storm is not too bad and you can still get out when you need too.. I used to drive over 20 miles to work on some pretty treacherous conditions so I know what you mean.

Spring is arriving fast here in Texas. We have gone from freezing temps last week to almost 80 degree weather for this week and the foreseeable future. So my gardener(DH) is now digging trenches around our rose bushes and inserting a plastic panel wall between them and the tree roots nearby. We have planted 8 climbing roses and will plant 4 more climbers to go all along the fence between us and the neighbor's garden fence. the roses flank the garden gate trellis that DH built. When they are all in bloom at once in April here I hope to post new pictures for you all to enjoy.
Have a great weekend yourself, Lois!
Pat
Ps I discovered yesterday that our daffodils are already up at the entrance to our driveway and are 6 inches tall' Another sign of spring.!

It looks like spring is here with snow banks melting, but look out freezing rain and more snow coming this weekend. My prayers go out to the people who live on or near the flood plains as this is not going to be a very good time for them. Thankfully they have already starting filling sand bags and preparing for the big melt down. Have a good weekend and stay safe.

Hi team. what are you up to this evening? Hope you had a good day and a relaxing evening.

After our local news we will put in a NetFlix movie.called "The Lightkeepers". sounds interesting! It is a period drama set on the shores of Cape Cod in the summer of 1912.
And I will be working out for at least 30 minutes of it. emoticon

Lois I didn't see your post when I started mine. you had a very interesting day .What fun to shop for wedding and shower gifts all at the same time.
The book your group critiqued sounds interesting . I know my DH would like it too. he just finished "Water For Elephants" by Sara Gruen. he highly recommends it too. I haven't read it yet.

This morning I check my granddaughter's bridal registry and saw that one the the items was on sale today for 50-% off. Needless, to say I made a bee line for the store and purchased the wedding gift. Why is it that bargain or discounts make us so happy? Because I was in the mood I also went and purchased gifts for the two showers that I know I am invited to. These were not on sale. Also went to one of my book clubs and had a great discussion. Everyone really liked the book which made me feel good as I had recommended it. The book was In the Heart of the Canyon by Elisabeth Hyde. It was a story about a group of very different people taking the rafting trip on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon and their many adventures. Well that is about all I know today. Have a good evening.

I may have been ripped off and know that the next time I will check with either my son or son-in-law. THE DECORATING - they have started painting on my floor. The colors are terrible. If you will pardon the expression the main walls are a baby poop color with a dark teal blue on the inserts. The carpeting will be very dark so we will feel like we are going down a dark tunnel when everything is done. I am not sure that the great decorator the Board hired knew what was what. The really bad issue is that the home owners were given only two choices and many of the residents choose to vote for one or the other and didn't stop to think they could have veto both chooses. Oh well, as I said before that's life deal with it.

Talk about a day brightener. Just had a knock on my door and one of my neighbors gave me a dozen red roses. Sun is shining and now I have beautiful bouquet of roses to make my day. Before anyone gets any romantic ideas, it is not possible. A good and helpful neighbor got many years.

Hi Lois , I don't want to alarm you but I just told your problem to my DH about the outrageous charges you had on your power steering fluid and he said no way could that be
correct! In all our years of owning cars we have never had to it replaced for us and if it were it would only have used about 5 dollars worth of fluid. So he thinks either they did a lot more other repairs or they very over charged you! he said the best thing to do would be to find someone who is knowledgeable about auto repairing and have him look over your bill.
I would go to a Senior Center to see if someone there helps people with problems like that.
Hugs, Pat

Good Afternoon to everyone. Why is that when you take your car in to have the oil changed it always cost more than you planned. I already have a life time discount on oil changes at my dealership, but hadn't planned on having to replace power steering fluid. What normally would be $29.73, my bill was $171.36. Along with gas at $3.19 a gallon, cars are getting to be pretty expensive. Thankfully being retired I don't have to drive a lot and somedays the car never leaves the garage. Came home and did laundry, and everytime I have to do it I get very frustrated. New washers were installed and the charge is 75 cents per load and that is okay, but we still have the old dryers and they raised to price to 75 cent per load. Now I don't know about anyone else but I couldn't leave anything in for 75 minutes. But, you know you have to get cagey - so I do one load for 30 minutes and then put the second load in for the reminder of the time. I guess this is enough poor me today.

Hey Irene,Lois,Marsha, and Wiser. and any new folks who might stop by--
Hope you had a great day.
Wondering if you have been watching the events unfold in Egypt this last couple of weeks. It was a remarkable spectacle to see these peaceful people rise up in non-violence on the part of the masses to gain their freedom.
I pray the army will not disappoint them now.and they will get the democracy they are set to achieve.
got to go get back to working out.

Good Morning, Irene, I am finally back after a week-end plus with no internet. Hopefully my new provider will do a better job than the old one. I really missed my Spark friends and didn't realize how much I enjoy checking in everyday. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Computer withdrawal has been going on since last Friday. After spending mega hours with AT&T last week and then this Monday from 9:00 AM until 2:30 PM, I finally told them to just cancel. So now I am with ComCast, but for the time being my e-mail is the same. Will have to contact Sparks People when it changes. I have really missed everyone and want to thank everyone for all the Happy Birthday messages and Goodies. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I deleted a long post quoting a passage from Rhonda Byrne's book The Power that I found pertinent to my health and weight concerns. I did post it on my Blog, however.

Here's to an enjoyable and successful day to all of us. Love, Wiser

Irene-I am sorry you are having troubles sleeping. I just saw a good article on solving that problem written by an expert in that area. Just google to FitClick and go to article called
Better Sleep Lessons very interesting. Hope this helps.

Beautifully said.
No matter what our circumstances are now
We can all be grateful for the life we have been privileged to have lived!
Now, every day is precious and we can show our appreciation by sharing our love with others and ourselves.

I live on a hillside in a beautiful rural area in lush western Oregon. One of my favorite pastimes is to sit on my deck and look out over the ever changing panorama. As I look out I can't help but think how blessed I ma to be able to spend my retirement years in such a lovely place. As I'm thinking along those lines that maybe the infirmities of aging aren't a blessing too.

They say you don't appreciate what you have until you lose them. Maybe this is a time for appreciation now that we know what to appreciate. My eyesight is slowly failing which make me ever so thankful for all the years I could see well. My skin is all wrinkles and sagging but did I appreciate all the years it was smooth and firm? No, I took it all forgranted. I could go on and on listing all the aches and pains and problems that tarnish my golden years but I think you get the picture. (borrowed from a blog)

So now I walk and appreciate the fact and can still get out and walk the parks and preserves, of which we have so many. Granted, my 12 min mile has became a 20 min mile but I see so much more than I ever did before.

I ask you not to fret about what you don't have that you used to have but give thanks for all the years you did have it. Just use them as reminders of all the blessings we had and didn't appreciate. I call them photographs of my life. BORROWED FROM ANOTHER TEAM MEMBER.

My DH was hungry for pancakes tonight so I found a great Spark recipe by CTCLOUGH-oatmeal pancakes.and served with maple syrup.
I cut the recipe in half but used a whole egg.also added blueberries,cinnamon,and vanilla.
A comfort food that was whole grain( also used whole wheat flour and non- fat milk)
Just what the dr. Ordered on this blustery snowy day.
If you like to cook you will love this one.

Thanks, just got a call from our Son, and everyone is sick in their household with some kind of bug. Our Son told them that he didn't want his parents around it. :) So it is next Sun instead.
Just as glad, I went and bought groceries, and get hair done at 2:30 today. I have some light clothes to wash, and odds and ends.

Have a great day.
Check in later. I got my walking in Publix as it is a big store, and I parked quite a ways from the door. :)

Irene, we have a BD party to go to Sat. for our newest Great Grandson who turns 2. It is early in the afternoon, as they all know I don't drive after dark. DH gave up driving quite a while ago.
I have to get some groceries tomorrow also. Have a great evening.

Good evening all. Just got into my comfy clothes, DH is watching Wipe Out, and I will go and join him soon. Wanted to check in and see if everyone got in some form of exercise today. I worked in the yard for awhile. It was in the 70's and no wind, a beautiful day. I also rode my recumbant bike for 1 mile. I didn't go get hair done this morning as my stomach was a little upset and a headache. Feel better tonight, and she will take me tomorrow afternoon.
Hugs and prayers to all.
Remember "If we don't use it, we lose it".

The guy who started how is everyone doing and put that title on it surely thought it was a good title. He isn't active in the team any longer and Pat took him off and put me in as co leader instead.
We will wait and see what she says. She may want to cancel how is everyone doing and put your just chatting away instead. If she did that it would be pretty close to the top of the subjects.
Irene.

I thought since I was't sure where to just chat that I would start one. If it isn't okay, can the owner/leader just delete it.

Sometimes we need to just chat away, I rode my recumbant bike for 1.5 miles today. What did any of you do for the exercise to get fit?
