Morning, Well I am the only one up in my house so far. Yep the kids and hubby are still sleeping lol can't believe it as it 10:30 here. So I am enjoying the peace in quiet. I just made a pot of coffee and I can't wait till it done.
We did our food shopping the other day so today we just gonna stay home and relax. I might even let the kids go in the pool for a few. Then take our son to his practice this afternoon. I sure wish it would start to cool down some as the hot weather is killing my plants. but they say it will last until next week. Other then that nothing new to report.
Hope all is well with everyone else.

Hubby came home last night. He brought home a dishwasher that he purchased from a scratch and dent Sears store. Ours stopped working. We had found a couple around here for about $400, but thought it couldn't hurt to check there. He found an upgraded one, an installation kit, and a 3 year warranty for $286. There are some dents on the front, but thought we could purchase a face plate for it.

It is nice to have hubby home this morning. I have been going stir crazy sitting in this house by myself. I have been cross stitching to pass the time, which I enjoy. But, the four walls and just the cats......

I am going to venture out today and do some grocery shopping. I haven't had a dizzy spell in a couple of days and it is time to get back to a regular routine.

Michelle, I hope you get back to normal soon.

Things have been busy here this week. I feel like we are back to school already. Jessie has band camp all day this week. I've been helping break things down after work and went up at lunch yesterday to pass out popcicles. Then had a booster club meeting Tuesday night. My oldest is out of town for a basketball tourney and will be back sometime tomorrow.

Had pretty bad storms last night that caused the power to go out twice. It was out for an hour each time. Too hot this time of year for that with no fans running.

I have an appointment today with my OB/GYN. I did some research last night, and my birth control pills may be my cause for my fatigue. I am on them for a hormone replacement, but am going to ask today what would happen if I went off of them. I sure can't live like this....

Spent a lot of time cross stitching yesterday. It is so nice to have time to do that. My projects are my "me' time. I don't get much of that these days :)

Morning, How is everyone? Me doing good figure I stop by for a quick hello. Yesterday we took a the kids to a local zoo and I got some walking in lol. It was fun and hot. I am finding ways to be active as I hate exercising. The main thing is we spent the day as a family without being on the computers, cellphones, video games,tablets lol.

Rain and storms are not supposed to hit here until around 1:00. Humidity is back up, so the ac is back on. I didn't use it yesterday. It was hot, but I had a fan blowing air around, and I really don't like using it all the time. We only have a window unit, and it never really cools the house all the way down. But, it works great for getting rid of the humidity.

Been working on the cross stitch kit I bought in AZ this week. It feels really good to be stitching again I try to get up after every color change and "do" something. Even if it is just picking something off the table and putting it away. Hoping to try walking a little this weekend. I need be sure the dizzy spells are gone!

I should go to the grocery store today, but not sure if I will. Just very tired today. We shall see.

Vicky, thank you so much :)

Michelle, I am perimenopausal so I can relate with those symptoms. I got lucky and inherited my mother's genes who was perimenopausal for a long time. Unsure if i should buckle up or hope with all my might I don't take after here.. After a year of it (so far) i feel crazier than a bag of hammers. Glad you had your ear checked up on :)

hi all!
Just breezing through after my workout. Feeling pretty good today. It's day 5. The first few weeks are always the hardest, especially during the afternoons for some reason. I think I relate that time of day to my binges. Anyway, happy to be here! Happy Tuesday!

I saw the Dr at 8 this morning. My ear infection is really bad, and that is what is causing the dizziness. Phew! No neurologist emoticon
While I was there I made an appointment with my OB/GYN. I'm having similar cramping to pre-surgery in February when I had the polyp removed. Along with menstrual bleeding/spotting for 2-3 weeks out of every month. I think there is a hormonal imbalance similar to pre menopause that is causing my lack of sleep and night sweats. I see him on Thursday.

HI! Sorry I have been MIA again! I'm doing good with my eating but my scale is not budging. My boyfriend has been in the hospital twice during the month of July - so it has been a very stressful time - I'm just glad the number is not climbing on the scale. I'm holding steady. Hope everything get back under control and I can get back on track taking care of myself!

Talk to you soon,

Debbie

Thanks everyone, We are so very proud of him.

Well I do want to apologize for not logging in every day. I just been busy with the kids and hubby that I just use the spark app. to log my foods. My hubby ask why am I not using the laptop, I am like I just want to spend time with the kids before they go back to school as summer is almost over for them. With us being so hot here over 100 we been spending every single day in the pool. We even take walks late in the evening when it a little cooler. Plus I don't want my asthma to start acting up either. So far I been keeping it under control.
I am doing okay with the WW new points program finally figuring them out and I am down to 251 again from 256. I started on june 27th. So I am proud of myself. It a long road trying to lose this weight, I sometimes tell myself I will never get back to 184. Hubby tells me I will it just takes time. I now look at it this way I just want to be healthy not skinny. I am done with yoyo diets and beating myself up when I don;t see the numbers I like. I am changiing my lifestyle to be more healthy. Even me and hubby are doing better now as we don't fight much and yes we been working on us too. For a while things wasn't looking good for us. Even we came a long way too. Can't believe we be married for 16 years coming Aug 5th. Now only if I can get him to get his diabetes under control that be great too, Cause his numbers are all over the place and his A1C are high. But only he can do that. Well The kids are waking up so I better get off so I can see what they all want for breakfast. I just wanted to stop by and say I am still here lol.

I am starting to get to the root of the problems....
Did some research last night about my insomnia (I haven't had that in a few days), and it appears that is a side effect of coming off of Ambien. They call it a rebound effect. I think that is over, thank goodness!

I went to the Walk In this morning. After using the OTC product the ER told me about, my hearing was diminished by at least 50%. They were not at all surprised that the ER did not help me. They actually rolled their eyes! They also said the OTC product would have taken up to two weeks to work! They flushed it out, and took out all that gross ear wax. Yuck! But, they did find an ear infection behind it. I am now on antibiotics. I took a four hour nap this afternoon. I am tired, but seemed to have a bit more energy than I have had all week.

I think I am back to my normal sleep pattern - sleeping, but not soundly. I will start trying Benadryl if needed or Luminite from GNC. It was recommended by a friend - non addictive and all natural.

We had a very unhealthy dinner tonight, but it was something I have not made in years! Crescent Dogs - one of hubby's favorites. Tomorrow, I start tracking again. Haven't done much of that this week. I've just been watching portions and how much I want to snack.

Enjoy your evening!

Had a horrible night sleeping on Wednesday. That was insomnia for sure! I slept for about an hour before having to get ready for work. That was a long day, but I did it!

Came home yesterday with the intention of going to bed early. We had horrible storms roll through here around 4. It was thundering and lightning, and raining so hard it was coming down sideways! Lightning ended up striking a transformer or something. The lights flickered a bit, then went out. The power tried coming back on a few time, and I could see a blue glow coming from down the street. That scared me! But, then no power at all for four hours. Boy did this house get hot then!! I slept better, just not the relaxed night I wanted....LOL

Woke up this morning, and got ready for work. Then my balance and equilibrium acted up again. Hubby was home this time, so he took me back to the ER. They said it was a buildup of ear wax, and to go home and use Debrox. Don't they flush your ears out for you in the ER anymore? Used it when I got home, but now my hearing is horribly muffled. Now, I wonder if I really did have bad side effects from the sleeping pill? I don't want that zombie like feeling, but i think they misdiagnosed me on Tuesday.....

I have an appointment to go to a counselor on Monday afternoon. I am trying to rule everything out, so want to be sure I don't have anything going on that is keeping me up at night. I've seen her before and I loved her! In a different situation, we could be friends :)

No plans this weekend, so I am hoping to relax and try to get better. Maybe I'll work on some cross stitch and take time for me. Hubby is going to work on the yard.

Hello everyone! It's been awhile since I've stopped in to say hello. I'm finally back to normal thank God. My ankle has healed properly and I'm now back to my regular routine. It's good to be back.

So proud of your son Sandy! That's awesome!

I'm back from vacation. We had a great time and I really didn't want to come back. Really don't want to go back to work tomorrow. We hit the water park, Silver Dollar City, shopping, went on a huge ferris wheel. The ferris wheel scared me half to death but I did it.

I did wake up with hives one morning. I'm guessing it was the Amish cheese or summer sausage. It was the only thing I ate that was out of the ordinary. Too bad b/c it was good.

Got a lot of walking and am trying to get back into the regular exercise routine. Will be getting on my glider when the kids to go practice tonight and catch up on my soaps.

Opted not to take any meds last night to be sure everything was out of my system. So, I did not sleep. I rested. I just don't get into that deep sleep.

I am making an appointment with my doctor today. I hoping he has one available right away since I am off work.

Then, I have to schedule to have my daughter's truck towed to a garage. Hopefully, the repair costs won't cost much. I also would like to go to Dollar General to apply for a part time job. It is time to accept the fact that this work schedule is just too much........

Took half a pill last night, and seemed to have a hard time falling asleep. Did some research on my phone. That is one of my pesky habits. But noticed that the blue light prohibits your melatonin from being produced. There are some apps that help filter the blue light, so I downloaded one. I also read that soft sounds of nature help too. I downloaded an app that will play those time of sounds on a timer that you set. I used it for an hour and a half last night. Along with my essential oil diffuser with calming oils.

But..... I woke up tired, fed my cats, took my shower, scooped the cat boxes, and made the bed. While making my lunch, I got weak and woozy and stumbled to the couch. And there I sat until my Mother In Law got here. She took me to the emergency room. My symptoms are very common for Ambient. So why would you prescribe that for someone who has to work? They recommended I use Benadryl instead, along with contacting my doctor. Now, we wait. I want to request a sleep study.

My daughter is on her way up to take care of me so I get to see Anastasia again :)

Sandy, that is awesome!! My son also has Asperger's (27 yrs old).

I hope everyone is careful when out if it is as hot where you are as it is here! Heat index is 104 for most of the week.

Everyone is doing the best they can with what they have and where they are.

Remember that the scale isn't the only way to measure weightloss success!

After my doctor put me on the Ambient, I slept at night. But.... yesterday, I felt like a zombie all day! I tried to cut one in half last night, but they are not scored. So the pill just crumbled. I opted not to take anything since I had work today. Well..... I didn't sleep at all. I called in to work and plan on calling the Dr today.

I also plan to call my OB/GYN. Maybe this is a hormonal imbalance? I am still having a few symptoms similar to pre surgery. Night sweats could be hormonal.....

Hubby and I talked and it is time to look for a part time job. The hours at this job are just too hard, and almost impossible with this fatigue.

Hi well it been a busy week. But did get to relaxed this weekend and we spent it in the pool. My son made the football team and he a wide receiver we so very proud of him. He very proud of himself cause he came out of his comfort zone. He very shy and laid back He has asperger's. We tell him you can do anything you set your mind to.He love sports and when we got a call from the head coach saying they wanted him to try out for the high school team we was afraid to let him but after thinking about it and talking to him he wanted to give it a try. So all summer he been going to practice. He came home Friday night and told us. Just wanted to come and let you all know he made it. Thanks for letting me share and rant on.

I am on the sleep aid for a week, before talking to the dr on Friday. So far, I think I sleep a little bit soundly. Not 100%, but a bit better. But, I am still exhausted during the day. Not sure if it is my being that far behind, or something worse. I would like to be checked for sleep apnea, or chronic fatigue. I am very close to getting getting a leave of absence at work (if they allow it) until I figure this out. Not sure how much longer I can do this,,,,

Spent the day with Anastasia yesterday. My daughter was helping my husband work on their truck. I had the much better deal! They had problems, but I had time snuggling and cuddles. They ran into problems, so we ended up driving my daughter back to Madison. We will be making some calls to see if we can find someone reasonable to get it back together.

Anastasia is getting so big!!!

It is too hot to walk outside so I can am having to workout inside. Ugh

Everyone is doing the best they can with what they have and where they are.

Several years ago I had the same problem with my sleep. It got to the point I would have to take a nap at work before I could even drive home. My first thought when i woke up was "I can't wait to take a nap". That is no way to live. He set me up for a sleep study and come to find out I have restless leg syndrome which woke me up over 900 times in one night. I never reached REM sleep because of that. They put me on medication and now I feel much better.

Good luck with your sleep aids.

Be the change you wish to see in the world.

I talked to the Dr. today, and all results are normal. That must mean I am really healthy!!! We came to the conclusion that I am not sleeping well at night, which causes my fatigue during the day. There are at least two days a week that I am almost late for work because I have trouble dragging myself out of bed. I know I didn't sleep well last night. I did not go into that deep sleep, so I can hear everything around me. We decided to try a sleep aid. I will try it for a week, then cal him and let him know how I am doing. If it is just a matter of a good night's sleep, I am glad there is not something else wrong.

Tomorrow, my daughter is coming up with her boyfriend and Anastasia. Her boyfriend will need to drive home for the night, but Ashleigh and Anastasia will be her until Saturday afternoon. I will get all kinds of Anastasia cuddles!!!!!

One day at a time... I will get through the week!

I called the Dr on my way home from work to follow up on test results. The phlebotomist had said the results would be in by Monday afternoon. I never received a call back, so hopefully I will hear something tomorrow.

Came home and took my nap (as usual) after eating my dinner. I come home so tired, I just crash hard! Afterwords, I did my laundry, cleaned the toilet, and got my lunch ready for tomorrow (and entered food into Spark).

Now, time to relax a bit before bed.

It has been so humid the last few days. I am ready for it to let up a bit. It's supposed to get very hot next week too!

Stopping in to say hello! I'm sorry I haven't been checking in here. I'm doing as well as I can considering some things going on in my life. My weight loss is fairly steady at 1 or 2 pounds per week. I've gotten a bit caught up with the 5% Summer challenge and have a bad habit of neglecting my other teams when I'm doing things like that. emoticon

I'll make an effort to stop in here more often, but I try not to be on the laptop for too long because I can easily waste time on it!

I've been studying a lot, refreshing my memory for my college placement tests. I believe I'm going tomorrow morning for those since I can do walk-in testing. I really loved algebra in high school. Now it's driving me batty! LOL

Have a great day, everyone!

Welcome VictoriousSamyB!


Had my appointment for labs yesterday. I am still waiting for the results. Hopefully, I will hear sometime tomorrow.

Sunday night, we went to bed around 8, which is normal for Sunday. I just could not sleep! I finally started relaxing enough to fall asleep and a car hit a deer in front of my house. The noise woke us right up! The alarm clock went off at 2. Only 3 1/2 hours of sleep made for a very long day....

Yesterday, the humidity was something awful! I don't have central air, but we use a window unit to keep the humidity under control. I normally turn it off at bedtime, and use a fan to blow cooler overnight air in. Not last night..... Just too muggy! I have four cats, whom I lock out of the bedroom at night. Due to the humidity, I left the door open, so that I could sleep with more comfortable air. Three hours before the alarm clock went off, I was being bothered for feeding time, attention, etc.... by three of them. One of the cats has her own room at night. The others will pounce on her, even when she is trying to use the potty. Needless to say, I slept better than Sunday night, but not great.

Because of the long Arizona drive, I am exhausted. Just trying to make it through the week.

Sorry I have not been on in a long long time. My boyfriend has been sick and finally got him to the hospital on July 2. He spent a week in the hospital and came home July 8th. It's been long and exhausting. Still trying to get everything back on schedule - including myself! Hope to have everything back on track in a few days.

VictorousSamy - welcome - hope you have a great day too!

Sitting this morning in my own recliner, drinking coffee, and participating in Sparkpeople! Life is back to normal. I do get today as my last day of rest, but I have things that have to get done since I had been gone for 8 days. Grocery Shopping is at the top of the list!

Weighed myself this morning... The scale was not nice! But, with 6 days of sitting in the car. Not much activity there... Back on track today!

Still in a mood.... I just didn't get the week of rest I was anticipating. I did get a message from my niece and talked to my nephew last night. They were thanking me for the gifts I had bought them. It was so sweet :)

I bought some herbal supplements that are all natural. They are supposed to help with energy. I don't know whether I should try them or not. I feel as if that could mask the problem. I need to know the cause. I also don't know if they would affect my blood tests.

Have a good day. They are calling for rain here.

Arrived home from Arizona today. I am exhausted! Spent 6 of the last 9 days in a car. Not the vacation, I had planned....

Mom is doing very well. She walks during the day without her walker, only uses it when she gets up in the middle of the night. She is getting physical therapy for her legs and hands. We will see on Monday how her appointment goes, but I don't expect any problems.

My test results came in while I was out of town. Everything came back fine. I go in on Monday afternoon for two more tests..... Sad when you hope they find something, so you can start feeling better.

Hi everyone! I'm playing catch up on housework and trying to get packed tonight. I'm going to meet my daughter and her basketball team in Indianapolis tomorrow. We'll be there through Sunday. Hoping not to get back too late on Sunday night.

Still can't figure out what the deal with my blood pressure is. Still high. My friend has cut out soda in the last 6 months so I decided to follow her example. I can't quit cold turkey, but I only had 2 glasses today. For me, that's a big deal. I drink about 3/4 of a 2 liter a day. And I hit my water goal for the day! Hoping that helps with the bp.

Not sure how much I'll be on this weekend so I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Hi Well hubby and kids are feeling better today think god. We ended up having a nice 4th of july with the inlaws. We had shrimp kabobs and hamburgers and hot dogs with deviled eggs, pasta salad and veggie tray and fruit tray with mini cupcakes and watermelon slushy. Then we sat outside from 8 till 11:30 watching fireworks. Now it back on track again and I am doing good.

Bought a couple of counted cross stitch kits yesterday. The one I had planned to work on has a chart so small I cannot read the symbols! I tried having Staples enlarge it, but it distorts them. I emailed the company to see if I can get a bigger copy emailed to me. I will need to open the other one this morning to see if it is better. Otherwise, I'll have to get another one....

I helped Mom do some of her checkbook balancing yesterday. With all of her problems, she was about two months behind. Now, that she is current, she should be able to keep up by doing a little bit at a time. Her hands are getting better, but it will take time.

Today, hubby and I are going to visit my (ex) mother in law. She is much more to me than that. I am more family than her son is! Then, we will venture out a bit to show hubby some things. Haven't had time to do much of that.

Temperature should hit 109 today. That is really hot, but I would take that over the -30 in the winter!

Michelle, how scary for your mom. I'm glad she's doing well.

Sorry to hear your husband's sick Sandy. Hope he gets better soon.

We have a busy but fun day today. It's massage day for me. Then my youngest has a doctor appt and then a hair appt. She's getting it dyed again so she'll there for a couple of hours. If it's not raining, I'm going to go walking down at the riverfront. But it's supposed to rain, so I'll probably just hit the gym instead.

My oldest is in Kentucky for a basketball tournament this week. She then goes to Indiana on Friday. I'll be driving up there on Friday and staying the weekend with them. We'll get home sometime Sunday, just depends on what time we play.

Sounds like everyone is doing well.

Great Job Sandy!

Thursday night, my mom had emergency surgery on her spine. She had a crushed disc, and would have been paralyzed if they didn't do something right away. She had been seeing doctors for four months about her symptoms. She had made an appointment with a neurologist two months ago on her own. So glad she did!

Because of that, my vacation changed a bit. Instead of driving to Ohio, we drove to Arizona. I needed to see my Mom and make sure she was ok. I feel so much better now that I have seen her. She is doing very well. Her legs feel stronger, but her hands could be up to a year. She can't do much because of that, but it will come in time. The pain is gone, but she still has some tingling.

Received all my test results from my blood work, and they all look like they are in normal range. Hopefully, the doctor calls me today so we can discuss the next step.

Had lunch with friends of hubby's yesterday, and saw my cousin and his kids. Today, will be more errands and hope to get to JoAnns to get some cross stitch or something to work on. I forgot all my sewing at home.....

Enjoy your day! It is supposed be 111 today! Loving it!

Sandy that stinks that your kids are sick. Hope they get better soon. Good luck to Karlton on trying out for the football team!!

I get to do another shift of gate security this afternoon in the pouring rain. At least I'll have a pop up tent to help keep me covered and I earn money to go towards my daughter's band fees. I feel sorry for the festival people and the vendors. Crowds have been very light because of all the rain this weekend. Our band gets to walk and perform in the parade tomorrow. I'm walking with them (I'm one of the water moms and we are passing out our flyer for our 5k run).

That's awesome Sandy!! Keep up the great work.

We have a fundraiser this weekend for our band. We work security at the riverfront festival. It's not like real security, just tell people they can't bring in or take alcohol out of we see them with it and tell people their dogs have to stay on the trail. So easy, I just people watch and talk to people. Working 3 hours tonight and 5.5 tomorrow. It's supposed to rain all day tomorrow but I'll survive! Will definitely be wearing some dry fit workout outfits.

Sunday and Monday will be cleaning days. Kids and hubby will probably shoot off fireworks with the neighbors those nights. I'll go out for a little bit, but my poor dog freaks out so I'll be cuddling with him most of the night.

Hope everyone has a great 4th!!

Happy Thursday Everyone! I'm still hanging in there and keeping myself motivated by doing small walks to keep the ankle going. I'm going to follow up today with the orthopedic surgeon to be sure everything is healing properly.

MPOTTER22 Ė I hope all goes well with your test results. Enjoy your vacation. It's so great to pamper ourselves when we can.

VICKYLYLES Ė Wow thatís awesome that you guys are looking into colleges. I too will be doing that soon. My daughter will be a senior in the fall so Iím not ready for her to go away to school yet. She is my youngest but so independent.

Sorry to hear about your ankle Nessagirl. But glad to see you on here.

My daughter and I went on her first college visit yesterday. We really loved the school and it's only 25 minutes from our house. She wants to go into physical therapy and can get all her schooling done there. We have another visit in a couple of weeks. This school is only 5 minutes from the house and she can get a big scholarship to this school. I'm so not ready for my kid to go to college yet.

Sorry about the ankle NESSAGIRL! Hope it keeps healing for you!


Worked my eight hours today, and left for the day. I had to get everything done through the insurance for the raccoon incident. I am leaving town this weekend so had to get it done today!

Had my appointment with my doctor to see why I am so tired. He ordered a bunch of tests to check Vitamin D, Iron, diseases from ticks, and others. Five tubes later..... Hopefully, we will find some answers.

Tomorrow, after work, I am pampering myself with a manicure and pedicure for my vacation. I've been meaning to get one for a while for some "me" time, but this trip just made me make it happen!!

Dropped my car off at 4, then was picked up and taken back to Enterprise to get my rental car. On the way there, we were rear ended at a stop sign in the car they planned on giving me! They ended up giving me a Malibu, which is still a nice car :)

Still waiting to hear from my Mom after her appointment with the neurologist today. Last I heard, they were ordering a MRI to be done today.

What a day! I am beat!

Hello everyone I've been missing in action for awhile. I'm still on track but haven't posted in awhile. It's so good to see everyone still here!

I've had an ankle injury for over a month which caused some physical therapy. I think I was running way too much training for the 5K. I had to take the last 4 weeks off from running and 2x a week physical therapy but it's getting so much better.

My Fitbit has been missing me going over 40,000 steps a day. I had to cut it down to just 15,000 a day for now until I get the ankle back to normal. I had to go to the New Balance store and get inserts for my New Balance running sneakers. I'm feeling much better and I'm so happy to be up and walking again.

Glad to hear from you Sandy! Seems like you are having a great busy summer. Congrats on the loss!!

We are going to Branson in a couple of weeks. So ready to just get away. My doc increased my blood pressure medicine on Friday. It's still fluctuating but hopefully I'll be normal by the end of the week. It was high yesterday but a little better today. I'm going to concentrate on my eating and lower my sodium intake. The soda is going to be the hardest part for me. Wish me luck!!

Made it through Monday!

Stopped at Best Buy to get a new GPS. Hubby wanted to take the old one, so we replaced mine. With him out of town all week, it is just easier to have our own. Came home, and started getting things together for our trip. My To Do... List is on the refrigerator, to be checked off. There is not much on there, so hopefully it will be done pretty painlessly.

My mother has dealing with awful pain in her hands and wrists, along with some unbalance and gait issues. The nerve doctor she was seeing told her he saw carpal tunnel in her tests. She saw a hand specialist today, who said that her symptoms are not carpal tunnel. He predicts that it may be a spine issue, brain issue, or multiple sclerosis. They all sound scary to me. She lives in Arizona and it is so hard being this far away from her while she is dealing with this. She has been is so much pain, along with just dropping things all the time, that her husband has been doing everything he can for her. Not sure how much longer she will be able to work....

Weighed myself in yesterday... I was up, but not unexpected. I have not tracked for two weeks. I just don't do well if I don't track. Started tracking yesterday. Not sure how much I can track while out of town, but my sister usually cooks pretty healthy with the two young kids and her husband who has high blood pressure.

Enjoying the cooler temps today, hoping to cool down the house tonight. It is pretty stuffy in here!

Hi Sorry I been Mia Been busy with family and enjoying the summer. After the kids got out of school we took them to see the Hover Dam and then we spent a few days in Las Vegas. We also took them to the San Diego Zoo and Sea World. Both on different weekends of course. We also went to a local water park called Splash Kingdom..So we been busy this summer. We just got the kids a nice pool that is 18 by 48. They love it and been enjoying it. We been very hot here like in the 100 all week long for the past two weeks and they say it not going away anytime soon. So the pool is great too cool off in.
I been logging in my foods with the spark app for over 160 something days now and I am down to 252 from 260 which isn't bad. Slow and steady you know. The good thing is I am happy and I am enjoying life.
I do want to apologize for not being around much. I just wanted to give the computer a rest and spend time with the kids and hubby. I haven't forgot anyone. I miss you all. Hope everyone is doing well and staying cool this summer. Gotta go the kids want to go in the pool..

Hope everyone had a great weekend. I'm beat and I didn't really do anything. Pretty much had the weekend to myself and didn't get all my chores done but oh well. They'll still be there today. I'm just ready for this day to be over!

I was more tired today than I have been yet. I hit the snooze button for an hour and a half this morning! I had to look at the clock on the microwave twice to figure out what time it was....LOL Good thing I normally up to be at work an hour or so early, so I made it to work on time. Tonight I will be resting until I feel ready to get up!

I am visiting with my Daughter tomorrow, but with no set time. She is having a late night with Derek's family, and I am in no rush.

The weekend is finally here emoticon

Oh Michelle, she is so cute! Love the outfit.

Tammy I'm so jealous about all your zoo trips.

I've been kinda sluggish today. Think the heat has been getting to me. Been tired a lot. I didn't exercise for 3 days in a row. So not like me anymore. Oh well, I'm back in the groove. Walked outside Wednesday morning before the heat set in. Went to the gym yesterday. My gym got bought by Golds Gym so I'm hoping they'll make some improvements.

So glad it's Friday. I pretty much have the weekend to myself. My husband and youngest daughter are going to New Orleans to to visit on of her friends. My oldest is 17 so she's barely home as it is. She's working a lot this weekend since she will be out of town for half of July for basketball tournaments.

Parts for my car did not show up until this afternoon, so one more day with the new car. It should be ready after work tomorrow since it is only a four hour job.

I called my doctor office today to check for a sooner appointment. They had an opening next Thursday. Thank Goodness! I didn't want to wait until the 11th!

Might go do some shopping on Saturday with my daughter. I need some shorts or capris for my vacation in July. My clothes from last year are too big. Of course, if I don't feel better soon, they'll fit again.....

I'm just so tired when I come home with not energy to track food or prepare it. That is a common problem when you are tired, but need to fix it!

Have to share a picture of my Badger Fan! Her face is starting to have expressions :)

Michelle, you've been awfully busy!!!

I spent part of my day yesterday at Zoo America in Hershey, PA, then stopped at the outlet shops there to visit the Disney store.

I've been struggling ever since we had the boys to visit last week, so I was very happy to get in over 10000 steps yesterday. I joined the Summer 5% challenge which starts on Saturday, so I'm really hoping it helps me to get my butt back in gear.

Today I'm calling the local community college to see about beginning classes there to get my Social Services transfer associate degree, and in a couple of years I will move on to get my Bachelors in Human Services. My ultimate goal is to become a Case Manager for people with disabilities. My son's Case Manager has also directed me toward a Peer Support position that has opened up, so I will be calling about that today as well! That will require 10 weeks of training, and I'm ready and willing to make a change in my career. I'm currently employed with the state, and it's only a seasonal position that I have held since 2012. I help people, but not in the capacity that I would like.

Time to start my day! Have a great one!

Took my car to the dealership after work today, so that they can work on it tomorrow. The big issues are under warranty. I am only responsible for the oil change, tire rotation, and couple of filters. I drove home a loaner car. Oh my! Feeling like I am moving up in the world...LOL I have a Chevy Cruze Eco that I absolutely love emoticon I drove home a 2016 Chevy Traverse. What a nice SUV!

Can't seem to sleep through the night. Woke up in the middle of the night with a stuffed up nose, probably caused by the fan blowing the fresh air into the room. Had to get up to blow my nose, turn off the fan, and put an extra pillow under my head.

I don't have my Dr appointment until July 11th. I may call and see if I can find something sooner, even if I have to hang around town for half an hour or so to kill time....

Humidity was high at lunch but down in the house. Have a great day!
