I had such a good day yesterday! I was OUTSIDE all day and it was wonderful! High 60's, little breeze... got real ambitious and mowed my front yard twice, drug a bunch of broken limbs from our last ice storm to the back and raked leaves from under my bushes and flowerbeds. Hubby came home from work and said wow...

It was so nice I even took the birds out for a litjavascript:void(0)
Post Messagetle sunshine to sit with me by my pond. Freaked them out at first but calmed down and were singing back to the outside birds! It was cool!

I Love Sunshine! I even got color on my face yesterday!

I have a myspace page too.I am only connected to my kids there and people I know.
I have a 360 page and that place was awesome before Yahoo went crazy.Never felt the love for face book or multiple.
I have good old friends .But never seem to really make new ones so I know what you mean.
I am glad I have you too and I feel the same way

You know... I have had a myspace page for a couple of years now and never did meet anyone to be friends with. Usually just horny old men looking for... whatever. Here on SP I have met the most wonderful, interesting ppl! I truly feel some good friendships here.... something I have never had in real life. Usually, women and I don't get along. Tolerate each other because our husbands are friends but never close to me. I am not a bad person or after their 'man'.... but somehow I threaten other women and must intimidate them, I don't know. I am just so happy to call each of you my FRIEND and if I need to talk you all are just a click away!

It is so easy to meet great people on the computer that you have stuff in common with and enjoy chatting with. How come it is so hard in the real world????
Guess if we were closer we would never get anything done but we would have greattans LOL
Party light was my favorite thing to sell.Their candles are the best.I love candles

Hi Gwen,
Sitting here laughing I sold "toys" too Made a bunch of money LOL LOL LOL NJ girls like toys He-he
I also did not want to say i spent the whole time in a bikini umm but I do we started gardening the way in Florida It was great to do the ponds.I just can not break the habit.
I had a nasty spot/mole gone wrong removed years ago and they told me no more sun I can not stop.It makes my body feel good and I am happy.

Your weight lose ticker puts you at about 10 pound heavier then I was when I started this spark people journey..I think this Summer you will not need your giant shirt .KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
Umm And thanks for being more open then I am ..I love that in a person

Reiki is a healing method.You move you hands over a person and move block energy in them.It helps to over come emotional problem along with physical pain Etc.It is very neat,Jimmy and I are both healers.I also do crystal work.It has been a long time though.It is not so popular here.I had a very cool Girl Scout troop though LOL.

Arlene, when I was younger, all I did were party sales... make-up, lingerie & 'toys', amway, avon... I see hubby so little (he works 6-6...7...8)that my night time is with him and once in awhile the kids so parties are out for me! lol

I HAVE seen Madonna and she is def my idol! I admire her so much along with Angelina, Barbra Streisand, and many other oldies but goodies! Thing is... they can AFFORD to look good! If I had their money I'd look good for my age too, even tho ppl tell me I do. Ah well....

What is Reiki?

I am a sunbathing goddess! Professional sun-tanner... always have been. Went for my very first dermatology visit a month ago... had 2 beauty marks (ok... moles) cut off my face and one off my back. The back one came back 'positive' and then had to have a huge chunk as big as my thumb removed from my back, which came back negative, so I'm doing good! Am really glad it wasn't one on my FACE that came back positive! My incision was 3" long with 8 stitches inside and 13 out. HUGE! Am so glad yours tested well! My dad has had skin cancer bumps burned off of his face for years and I lost a good friend to melanoma cancer last year. She had a spot on her arm that wouldn't heal... found cancer in all her lymph nodes, did the chemo thing, spread to her bones, lungs & brain and 6 months after being diagnosed, was dead. That's when I made the appt with the dermatologist.... took a year to get in to see him.

My doc said I need to stay out of the sun... yeah right.... might as well tell me to stop breathing! I asked him for how long? A Day? A week? A month? He said Forever! Nope. Can't do that. The sun is what I live for!

I'm like you Arlene... only I spend my summers in a bikini (ugly!) with a huge muscle shirt over to keep me cool and hide the rolls. When I get too hot, I just jump in the pool!

I have 6 of my 'kids' cremated in urns in a cabinet.... just can't seem to part with them after they died and didn't want them buried in the dirt in case I moved so they'll be buried or cremated along with me when I go. Hubby says he wants to be put in an urn too alongside all my other kids!

(((GINGER))) I am fine I just look like a grouper.I always go and get checked out My Grand pa died of skin cancer .I am a sun worshiper as well .I am always outside in a pair of cut offs and a bathing suit top pulling weeds or planting something.If I wear anything more I get to hot and can't take it.

I am just the opposite I had nice skin when I was younger.About ten years ago I melted like the wicked witch of the West at a base ball game.I had a bad reaction to the anti biotic I was on It left a lot of scaring.
Hope you had a nice sun shiney day

Reiki is awesome, my bf has been utilizing it, as well as myself to heal spinal issues and it works like magic! I am so happy to hear the little animals you worked with had that energy from you SW.

LOL Gwen have you checked out Madona's new pics 50 just is not old anymore.Age is just a number ladies .I think onmost days I am about 15 scares the heck out of me if I get in front of a mirror.Eeek

I worked in the killing fields for 5 years in 2 states.It is a hard job.The people that work in those places all love animals so much.AND it does not pay so well either. I did learn rieki to help the critter with the fear .We got to go rescue wildlife and other things it was not all euthanasia but that was the start of my day for many years.I am certified to run 2 creamatories..YUK

I guess the right job will come along...Hopefully at the end of the Summer. I should be real bored by then.

Do they have party lite or pampered chef near you?? I made a lot of extra money doing home sales .Party lite is fun.I gave it up whe I moved to Florida no one there seemed to have money .
Okay I am off to bed I went to the dermatologist today and had all the icky pre cancer stuff burned off.I am swollen and drained.HAve a great night .Catch you all tomorrow

SilverW I know you were a wonderful pet tech, one of the most spiritual moments of my life was when I had my dog Brandi put to sleep, she was suffering and when she was put out of here misery I felt the relief and I was very glad I had chosen to hold her in my arms, the sense I got was "Thanks mommy, I needed that" :)

I would love to chat with you ladies I have so much to say but I realy need to work on the weight loss part, so off to the educational materials.

Arlene.... thanks for the compliments but you do realize that I am older than you? LOL 52 in May.... ugh. Hate the 50's. I'm too young to be half a century old!

I, too, have considered the home health deal for older ppl.... I have a friend in Louisiana who does it, not for a medical facility but for independents... she works her BUTT off once a week for one old lady who wants her house spotless and another she just has to take to lunch once a week and get her out of the house and another she just sits and visits. If you work for a company, 7-8.00 is about all they pay and if you are new, you get all the worst cases. Have to change their beds, give baths, cook and clean their house. My friend in LA gets 10-15 an hour, depending on what she has to do and it's their KIDS who pay her, not a company who takes taxes and all the bs!

OMG! You worked with animal euthanasia? That would just break my heart! I would love to work at our animal shelter or the zoo but the shelter only has a few employees and the rest are volunteers and the same at the zoo unless you have a degree or something and I don't ever volunteer because it always ends up costing me money!

Peggi? You work at a furniture store, I think I've read? Ashley Furniture put in a new warehouse here and I thought it would be fun... besides getting discounts! Hubby talked me out of it cuz he said I'd be bored all the time. Maybe so... I drive by and there are never any cars there! They don't allow jeans in retail and all my 'good' clothes don't fit anymore and I HATE shopping.... that and there's never any money left over for me. That's ok... who do I need to dress up for just hanging around the house? LOL

Thank You :)
I am leaning more toward a home health aid.Where you are really just a go-for / cleaning ladie. I have a friend that has been doing it for years and she loves it.You go in help them bathe,maybe clean up a bit in their homes and do their shopping.Anything that helps them stay a bit more independant.
I am really looking into one thing at a time and am focused on the GED thing for the moment.Trying to stay focused I scatter very easily and then don't get anything done LOL
Off to deliver eggs and get my shots updated .Gee sounds like a fun day
Hope you have a great one too

Congrats on passing your tests, that is truly awesome. I understand not wanting to work nights, weekends and holidays. I've done it forever and it does get old, although my schedule now is kind of nice. but don't nurses aids work those kinds of hours also?

I had enrolled once in a nurses aid class when something better came up and I took it. have you ever considered retail? I have always love it, and the job I have now is fairly great and pays well. Most days I really enjoy it.

I have worked as a vet tech for many years now.Funny in most states you do not need to be certified in any way.I was a vet/euthanasia tech in animal shelters for years .I have had so many animal jobs.Thing is the political crud that comes with it.I love animals but animal people all have an agenda I am tired of the attitudes. NOW I have no idea what I want to do..Hmmm have never tried waitressing LOL
I am thinking a home health aid.Love old folks I love to see them able to be independant for as long as possible.

Thanks for the pep talk Yardwalker.So far it has been easy.and I am loving algebra..WHO KNEW ??
As for you Billardbozs Mom You are gorgeous and young and you can do whatever it is you want.I can say this because I have been sitting in a class room with a bunch of kids for the last couple of month.It is fun get out there.Of course having a job cuts into gardening time LOL
Have a great day Ladies I am off to school;}~

I had alwsys pretty much wanted a "career" not a job. Working in the furniture industry sort of gives me that. Although its not a favorite of mine, most days I do enjoy it. I loved selling Avon and recruiting people, but just couldn't make ends meet doing that.

I've been home for 20 years now and wish I was working but after 20 years off, no education but HS, no job experience and little or no knowledge except for the self taught kind... the only thing I can get hired at is fast food and I'm not flipping burgers at McDonalds! I did work at Waffle House for a year a few years ago and it was sooooooooo hard. Everyone thought I'd last a day... then a week... then a month... and the challenge was on! I'm not a quitter and I gave it a year and made it so then I quit because I absolutely HATED it! I could waitress somewhere else but I always feel sorry for waitresses in the 50's + because I KNOW it's all they can get and they work so hard for their tips. Young'uns get tips because they are young and hot... old'uns get tips because they work hard. I wanna be YOUNG and NOT work hard! lol

Both of my kids work at an animal clinic and really enjoy it. I got my GED years and years ago. good luck to you. You will be fine with it all, I am sure. I have been fortunate in some jobs that I have had and I really do enjoy working in the large furniture store now.

I have only been home since Jan.I was let go from my job :) I loved my boss but my coworker was such a bully.I love the quiet.I was working at an animal clinic .Lots of noise there.I was always on the phone and talk talk talk .This is a nice change for me
I am collecting unemployment and trying to get my GED I never finished HS .I was so smart way back then I moved out.So up until now I have had school twice a week.I am about done .I have a test Friday and one on the 18th Hope I pass Math sure has changed a lot in 30 years.I feel so good about finally getting around to this.
We have a trip planned in May to go to Florida then I bet I have to look for a job.Maybe I can sneak in the Summer.LOL
This is the best group because everyone is so nice and we are all chatty.

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

I'm in a rural area also, but do have neighbors I visit outside with in the summer. Haven't seen them now in months. LOL, I do work though, full time. Would love to stay home, but we just bought this new house a few years ago.

You do the same! Is the SUN shining there? Haven't seen it in awhile here... I'm just as grey as the sky. I also stay home... was/am a SAH mom but since both boys are older I have no idea why I'm still home! The only words that don't come from my fingers all day are the ones I speak to Elle`.... my cockatiel.... she needs a lot of attention or she shreeks! If I get on the phone she knows I'm not talking to her and she makes as much noise as possible until I hold the phone to her and then she'll talk to it. Pretty funny! Enjoy your day!

1. Pile veggies on Pizza instead of sausage or pepperoni to save 200 to 300 calories per slice.
2. Fill most of your grocery cart with items from the perimeter of the store- fresh produce, lowfat dairy, lean meats and seafood.
3. Check the calories and fat grams of "healthy" fast foods like muffins: A honey bran muffin can have as many as 550 calories!
4. Swap high fat, high calorie condiments like mayo, butter, and sour cream for lighter ones like mustard, salsa and hummus.
5. Leave a third of every meal behind. When portion sizes are reduced, women can cut 800 fewer calories a day.
6. Ditch the soda for flavored water.
7. Dont buy in bulk. Research shows that people who stockpile food products eat more.
