Late check in. It seems like there are a lot of losses among our membership--may you all find comfort. We lost my father-in-law a year ago and so this All Saints has special meaning. I've been fighting a headache since yesterday so haven't gotten much done. I did make a huge squash, sausage and greens bread pudding, put two casserole dishes in the freezer and still had enough to bake for dinner. My husband and I are both still binging on candy, but when it is gone, it's gone and we won't be wanting any more.

Maree - So sorry for your loss.
DC - Sorry about the job loss and good luck on finding a new one.

It is never easy to lose someone close to you. I lost my Mom to Alzheimer's disease last month. I find myself crying about nothing off and on during the day. I will need to find a support group for the bereavement process.

I walked the dogs twice today and will walk them a couple of more times. I am eating healthy salads, and lost a couple of pound from last week. I am attending a Mass today for all the souls that passed away this year tonight. I was happy to see the Duck Boats loaded up with the Red Soxs and two million fans cheering them on. The City of Boston was a happy place to be today. Linda from bean town

It is emotionally unsettling when you lose someone close to you who is not very old. People are tied to your past and present and it is like a thread that unravels. That part of your life becomes static, there are memories but no new additions. My thoughts are with you.

Feeling much better the cold is fading away and the weather is lovely in Phoenix. Doing well with the food choices and the munchies-devil has disappeared. Not to much exercise, just a few short walks

Sunny in Southern California PST

Challenges are what make life full of stress and anxiety and overcoming them is what can wear you out. Stay stong.

Don't stay down, every storm runs out of rain.

So sorry for your loss Maree and Kellibean - my condolences also to your DH Maree and his entire family. Hope that both od you can find peace and consolation in the gathering of family and friends. You are so right....especially during this month of Thanks - family should be at the top of our lists.....life is just so fleeting and unpredictable.

So glad we didn't have to do the trick or treating thing this year. Now, to get the donuts out of the house. It will be good to get back to "normal" once the houseguests are gone. "Normal", ha, what is that?

Well, at least scale was down a pound this am and I'm headed in the right direction. Now to do a few chores, get to the vet and then work 2-11. Got to be up early tomorrow for a run at 7:30 and then church at 9 and maybe a day to get some stuff caught up at home and get a bit of rest.

Trick or treating was a ton of fun and I've managed to only have a few pieces from their candy stash. I put a picture of my cute bumble bee and lady bug on my sparkpage if anyone is interested. Letting my breakfast settle before I get on the treadmill. Then we are driving down to my old university for a football game. We haven't been to one in years and it will be a blast! Everyone have a great day!

Good morning! Beautiful day here in NJ. DH just took the girls to soccer, so I am drinking my coffee in my quiet house and getting ready to go to the gym. Need to work off the steak dinner I am having tonight. Going to Atlantic City with some friends. Having a massage at the spa and then a nice dinner.

Maree, I am really sorry to hear about your DH's uncle. So young. I am thinking of you and your family and hope the memories of your loved one comfort you during this difficult time.

Best of luck to Kellie and Kitty this weekend!

Have a peaceful and blessed weekend!
Kim

You have my sympathy, Maree - I am so sorry you lost someone special. And DC - still sending you some extra good job vibes.

I slept late this morning (for me, that is) but it's Saturday and all that's on my plate is housecleaning and laundry. I can stretch those out as long as I want. It's still mild down here but cooler weather is promised tomorrow. When the housework should be done. When I can play outdoors.

I'm so sorry Maree! I am getting ready for my aunt's funeral. I'll be sending you virtual hugs today.

I had a good morning yesterday with my daughter at the packet pickup expo for tomorrow's race. I set up my fitbit, very cool. I got a ton of steps walking around McCormick place!

Not sure I'll get much activity today. After the funeral, have to get ready for a combined bday party for my nieces. I'll get plenty of activity in tomorrow at the race.

Big hugs and employment wishes today!

Maree,
I am sorry for your family's loss and hope the service is meaningful and a comfort.

I am up too early too, but hope to go back to bed and catch a few more winks. Full week and I think my brain wants to keep solving problems! Crazy.

Looking forward to Saturday tasks and errands to kick back.

Good morning (actually middle of the night because I woke up and couldn't get back to sleep--ugh!) So I am having some hot tea and hope to go back to sleep before meeting my fitness buddy at 5:45 a.m. for a brisk 5 mile walk. My shoulder and arm muscles will enjoy the break from 5 consecutive days of HIIT training. I donate blood at 9:00.

DC, hope you are able to find meaningful pursuits. Good luck to all those running races this weekend. DH's 58 yr old uncle fought a good fight against rectal cancer the past 14 mos, but died yesterday morning. We will be driving to the services tomorrow. An amazing man in so many ways--survived a major farm accident and lived with an artificial leg for many years, quiet reserved witty kind. Way too young.

So I hope everyone enjoys their Saturday and give that family member and good friend an extra hug -- it's Thanksgiving month!
