I hope you feel better Pam. I walked my little dog and had to get a newspaper to read the death notice of Mom. I washed clothes and my cousin came over to move things out of the garage. I hope they come back tomorrow. Linda from bean town

Hello! Late check in. I started to write this morning and got pulled in another direction. We have gone from a house of 5 adults + 2 yr old since Thurs evening to just us two (plus 2 dogs and 1 cat, of course). It's quite a change. DH and I went shopping to ease the pain (LOL). It really is an adjustment from going from "chaos" to "silence".
Poor Pam! Mouth pain is right up where you live and you can't distance yourself from it. Hope you're feeling better soon. In spite of many indulgences this week I was able to post a loss. I'm still well within normal weight range, but I'll still feel better when get back under 120. My big adventure this week is experimenting with Ethiopian cooking. A neighbor gave us injera last week and when I went looking for Ethiopian recipes found that I lacked some crucial spices. So now that I've got the spices, we're almost out of injera! Yesterday I made the spiced clarified butter that is used in most dishes--it smells heavenly! Today I'll make doro wat, the chicken stew. But first, church!

Yet another rainy day here. That low remains parked off the mid-Atlantic Seaboard, and the rain and drizzle have continued for days. Guess I'm getting a look at what the Pacific Northwest would be like. I actually have been enjoying the cool, rainy days, and today the weather is making me feel like cleaning. So this morning I attacked the laundry room, which I swear hasn't been cleaned out since we moved in over 13 years ago.

I haven't been able to log on in awhile. I've been pretty much drugged up due to the pain from mouth surgery I had on Thursday. I have been eating awful things because it seems that it's the soft things that are easy to eat. I don't have much good food that I can eat and every time I get out of bed to try and exercise my mouth starts throbbing with pain. If I let the pain get the best of me it's really hard to get back under control. I have to eat something every 4-6 hours when I take my narcotics.
Anyway besides that my spirits are up and I'm getting in my sleep, (in chunks and pieces) and I'm getting my water in...well it's back to rd of bed for me. Have 'a great Sunday

Good morning! Slept late this morning and it felt great to get in almost 8 hours solid shut eye. Must be that Jillian "shred" DVD work out yesterday that has me a little sore--a nice sore, if I do say. Going to have a slow morning.
Made Harvest Vegetable Soup yesterday for lunch and had a bit for dinner too. I'd heard that it is a great healthy low cal food to have around, but have never done it before. I enjoyed all the fresh stuff in it and while I want to tweak the recipe, I think I've stumbled on a great idea for a fall-winter staple. I do love cooking in the cooler seasons and as tempting as baking is...gotta make sure I avoid winter pounds too.
I hope everyone has a day to savor!

Good morning sparkfriends. Enjoying my family weekend with my in laws. They have been so helpful moving. Emptied the storage unit yesterday except for 1 wire rack and the house of everything except for some tools and some stuff we want to donate. I think my dh & FIL are already gone to fix stuff in the attic. The contractor came and patched an eyesore hole in our basement. Now we are wondering if we go back w/the original cranberry purple color or something brighter? Anyways today I plan to go w/my MIL to take the kids shopping at target to get the kids halloween costumes, they are so excited! I think the kids and I have a cold but when we went to the pediatrician Tuesday the Dr. said it was just allergies. I don't know. Just know we all don't feel our best. Trying the saline spray this morning. Have a great weekend!

Good morning team. Up earlier than "normal". Getting ready to go downtown for the marathon and to cheer on a couple dozen friends. Thought I was doing better nutritionally and weight wise, but slipped up again last night. Not really highover my range, but not where I need to be to get under control and drop a couple pounds.
