"I can accept failure, everyone fails at something.  But I can't accept not trying again." - Michael Jordan

becky, thanks for the good wishes for ethan. unfortunately, amazon decided not to offer him a position. he's very disappointed, and i'm sad for him, but i'm glad he'll be staying close to home.

we're off to the travel show today to research next year's vacation. the conference is in orlando, so we're thinking maybe a short cruise before hand. we can't do it after this time, because my nephew's wedding it's the weekend following the conference. we will spend a few days with my college rommate before going home, though.

Saturday morning!!!! I decided to go walk instead of going to yoga since it's a beautiful morning and I wanted to burn more calories. We have belly dance class this afternoon in Zarcero....and since I have to drive today I'm hoping that the horrendous afternoon storms that come after our hot mornings hold off until we're home. emoticon

Kelly, relax and recuperate some of that energy today. emoticon

Erika, stay sane on your business trip!!! emoticon

Judy, are you home yet? Does your DH take care of your garden while your traveling? emoticon

Emme, isn't it amazing how the semesters fly by? We only have six weeks until our school year is over. There sure is a lot to do between now and then. emoticon

I've had to really exhausted days I'm just hoping the weekend will be better. At least I know probably why I'm feeling so tired at this point....it's that time of the month. Just going to my brother-in-law's this weekend nothing particular. Hopefully gearing up for a more enthusiastic week next week.

"Pessimism leads to weakness, optimism to power." --William James

Happy travels, Erika! I am not all that great when I travel, though I find not having a fridge in a hotel room helps keep me from random snacking. Unfortunately, when I work in Budapest, the minibar is there, and it's reasonably priced. Ugh. I tend to get more exercise when I travel, as I walk more as well, at least.

Ryan, send some of that rain to us! We need it so badly. It's forecast for tomorrow, but the forecast keeps getting adjusted so it's less and less. Now, maybe just in the morning.

How is everyone else doing? What's up for the weekend?

Was the rain off that Nor'easter Ryan? It's been drizzly but not really rainy here and I'm used to us seeing most weather first.

Sounds like you are gearing up for a good day. I have bread to bake and exercise to do and will somehow muster up the energy to do it.

focus on how far you've come, not how far you have to go.

i'm getting tired of the rain we've been having all week. thankfully, it's supposed to clear up sunday for the game. the walk from car to the stadium isn't that long, but in the weather we've been having, it seems like miles.

today is going to be a good day in spite of the weather. first the gym, then my niece is picking me up to bring lunch to daddy's. i'm looking forward to spending some time with her... she's awesome! wise beyond her years and so full of love and energy. i always feel good when i'm with her.

A shout out to everyone. Things are crazy busy right now, but the semester is quickly winding down (wait, didn't we just start?!). 6 more teaching weeks, and there are two vacation days in there for Veterans Day and Thanksgiving. I think I have only 10 more days of actual teaching, can that be?

Winter holidays will be busy, but it's always good not to be tied to a schedule. Gym time! (I'm sorely missing that now.)

Hi to all, and go Giants (a very poor showing last night, but at least the series got interesting)

i'll do better today emoticon

ethan's interview is today. i'm sure that i'm more nervous than he is emoticon i'm going to miss him when he moves out again. i've gotten used to spending time with him.

"you don't always need a plan; sometimes you need to just breathe, trust, let go and see what happens." ~mandy hale

so, ethan left this morning for seattle; he has an interview with amazon tomorrow. i'm a nervous wreck. i want him to get the job, but i don't want him to move to seattle. does that make me a bad mother? emoticon he got a job offer from oracle in massachusetts, but he's waiting to see if he gets an offer from amazon. he'd rather work for them. i guess i'll have to wait and see how it plays out.

speaking of jobs, erika, how see things going at yours? will you get the changes you requested or will you be laid off?

and, kelly, when will you hear if you get that second position you mentioned? hopefully not too long.

emoticon to everybody. since i'm up (have been since 4:15) i might as well get my day started. shopping today. oh, joy!

Should be back for real tomorrow. Trying to tame my apartment today. I did want to say that I did not get the job but the person who got it was someone I really wanted to get it anyway (someone in much worse financial shape than me and a friend of mine)...there's always the next position (my old boss was creating two) for me and I get a little more time to prep for it.

Also I had a good vacation and got to do some shopping too. As a reminder to you ladies when you lose a significant amount of weight it's good to get a bra fitting....I lost a cup size...I'm back down to the size I've been since puberty and I think that's why exercise has felt better to some extent.

Hi Ladies, so glad you all are doing so well!! I got back from SF on Thursday, but have had to work many hours every day since then...I ate at so many nice restaurants in SF that I have been scared to get back on the scales. Tomorrow is the day of reckoning!

I will be leaving on another business trip in less than a week, so I am just trying to take it as easy as I can right now without doing any major damage. But there is light at the end of the tunnel: this will be my last time traveling (for work). I did ask to get on the severance list so please cross your fingers that it happens! (Much better to get laid off with severance than to just quit.) emoticon

Emme, it was great to see you. Your energy comes across even more in person than via your postings. Add me to your fan club emoticon

Goal: get back below 140!!!!

-Erika

"Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn."--Harriet Beecher Stowe

Had a good day at home yesterday--got lots done, and stayed up late to clean the kitchen. It's my new routine, at least while we are without a housekeeper. I watch late night TV while cleaning something up. The kitchen is spotless, and I watched some of SNL.

Today, more work, work work. I have just 6 weeks left of classes -- wait, didn't I just start?

Becky, practicing belly dancing sounds like great fun for exercise.
Ryan, Judy, Kelly, hope your weekend went well.
Erika, how has your return home gone? So fun to have coffee with you.

Did I forget anyone? Pauline, Marie, we miss you!

I'm off to a second good day. We went to the track to walk and run stairs, then I came home and stretched and practiced our belly dance choreographies. In class yesterday our instructor cleaned up some of our sloppiness with the fans and wings. Now we have to practice LOTS to be ready for the festival. Less than a month to go. emoticon

I have to go across the street to a BBQ at my brother's house.....

Okay.....a positive post so I can get my points. emoticon

"One day at a time – this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering. Happiness is a journey"

Judy, I don't know what is going on, but you and I are going to get back on track NOW!!! Let's get our act together (again).

Ryan, I'm glad you caught up on you sleep. And congratulations to your son on his job interviews!!

Emme, I hope you had a wonderful day at home alone. I LOVE those days!!!!

Erika, nothing new on what is happening in your company????

Kelly, I hope you are having fun.....and staying on track.

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience."

This is one quote that hits home for me.....and that I need to be reminded of frequently.I just finished reading Barbara Kingsolver's "The Poisonwood Bible"....which I loved. And there was a really good poetic reminder of this in it.(Not this quote, though).

Emme, I'm with you on a ten day streak!!!

Awesome story Becky!

I am in SF. Walking around yesterday I saw two separate people eating directly from garbage cans. I live in such a bubble in suburbia...it's a reminder of how lucky we all are to have enough to eat.

Goal: get back below 140!!!!

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. ~Dalai Lama

Happy Sunday morning!! emoticon

We went to a birthday party for my DH's aunt who is 90. She is an incredible example of how to age.,,and how to enjoy life. I met her (before I met my husband) on a locally organized three day boat trip up the San Carlos River to the Nicaraguan border where we followed the San Juan River over to the Atlantic side. We traveled down the Tortuguero Channels to Limón. Three peace corps volunteers and I joined 15 other people on the trip. We took canned tuna and soda crackers and water for sustenance, and Juan's aunt took pity on us and invited us to eat all kinds of incredible food that she took. She even had a little camp stove to make coffee to drink with her home made bread. It was during the Sandinista war in Nicaragua, and we had to stop at three Nicaraguan guard posts to get permission to continue on the river. One of the peace corps volunteers borrowed a really expensive camera from the university where she was working for the trip. She started taking pictures at the first guard post (after all the Costa Ricans told her not to) and when the soldiers boarded the boat, they ordered her to hand over the camera. She argued with them (not wanting to pay for the camera) and then they ordered her off the boat with the camera. Juan's aunt was one of the one's who talked them into only taking the film. At the party yesterday she danced for hours.

I had a good time in Sarasota. We drove around the keys, sat on the beach, ate on the decks overlooking the beautiful sea and sand. I ate too much.

One last message before leaving (hubby is doing a dinner with his fraternity). We did get the car delivered (to our home incidentally) without a hitch yesterday and it's lovely! We've driven a little and it seems really nice (we won't do a big drive until our usual trip to Frankenmuth in January).

Tomorrow starts the staycation! I'm glad hubby managed to snag our Cabaret tickets because we were waiting to have the car finalized to get them...and now with the good deal we got on the car we'll have plenty of money to enjoy our time. Maybe I'll even have a regular job to go to week after this :)

Hope you all have a good week!

I am off to SF for a business trip until Thursday. Work dinners at nice restaurants every night...my only hope is that I am doing another research study with Bella and therefore must turn in my (paper-based) accounting of what I ate every day. Hopefully that will help me remember to stick to my goals!!

Emme if you by chance will be in SF anytime this week, let me know! Would love to meet for lunch, or I could skip one of those business dinners emoticon

Goal: get back below 140!!!!

I had my interview this morning and I think it went well but won't know anything for certain until at least next week.

We got our car yesterday (it's a 2014 Jeep Patriot) but we technically didn't get it yet (the owner of the dealership didn't get the message that we were coming for it and put it on display at a different dealership....so we have a loaner and our car is being delivered to my husband at work today).

Next week is my week away from SP (staycationing yay!). Hopefully I'll come back with all kinds of good news and stories.

Ryan, how excellent! Proud probably doesn't begin to express it.

Okay, heading out in 20 minutes to play music at a friend's place up in Marin, and then home to pack up to leave for the airport tomorrow. Vegas, baby.

In the whack-a-mole world, I am now doing fine on exercise, but food, meh.

Hi to everyone. An accounting later tonight.

thank you, erika and becky. yes, we are extremely proud. especially with the high praise he's receiving from his evaluators.

kelly, 2 great quotes today. how are things going with the job and the car?

becky, how old is charlie? losing a pet is so difficult. brett was 27 when his pet hedgehog died and he called me in tears. he almost had to call in sick to school, he was so upset.

erika, it's so great to hear from you. i'm keeping my fingers crossed for you for your job.

Kelly, I hope you are able to get your car. It sounds like it'd make your life much easier.

Erika, I've got my fingers crossed about your job situation. And I hope you hear something soon!!!

Ryan, are you still doing zumba? I can't believe how popular it is here. Our beloved aerobic's instructor is going to start working on her master's degree in Heredia.....and since her classes will be on Saturdays our Saturday morning class has been cancelled. emoticon

Emme, an all day meeting? That sounds like a miserable situation!!!! I hope it's not something you have to deal with frequently.

Judy, I hope you're having fun with your friend!!!!

I thought I'd done well yesterday, but when I entered my food I had gone over on calories.So.....

I hope your job situation works out Erika.....

And I really hope we get this car...we were denied before when we went to lease one because of hubby's credit....I have great credit but a minimal job....it's one of those things. Our car is dying slowly so we do need a new one...hubby took the bus to work yesterday which is not something he usually does. But DH has already talked to the dealership and they think they might be able to swing it for us. His dad might have to cosign but that wouldn't be such a bad thing.

Kelly, congrats on the car! We were considering buying one when my DS started driving and took mine. But we decided to limp along as is, and I am so happy we did, given my questionable job future.

Becky, sorry to hear about your dog...that has to be hard. I know how much I love my furkids.
Emme, I'm very excited I got the interview but I sort of expected that part! The job is somewhere I've worked before and the person hiring is an old boss of mine...I'm only up against two other people...both of whom also worked for him (we all worked there as students)...he's having to have the department head sit in because he says he can't be unbiased and would love to hire all three of us. I hope it works out because it would be a lovely job. I also hope hubby and I can get our car situation sorted because while I don't drive hubby was planning on driving me for half of my trips and I'd appreciate that. I like the bus find but would like to avoid having to bus early morning and late night (both of which it is dark...the only thing I dislike about this time of year is the encroaching dark...granted it's well lit enough where I live and where I'd work and I used to walk to and from work (and so have an idea of how to keep it safe) when I was a student but it's still not my first choice.

Time to stop trying to solve things with food (lack of included) that food won't solve. Food solves one thing: bodily hunger.
