Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Dave got a good report from the doctor on Tuesday. It usually takes an hour and a half to drive from our house to the Magee hospital. There was an accident and we waited for 40 minutes to get through the Tunnel. It was another wait to get on I 70 toward home. we were 2hour and a half and got home at 6 pm;. Our daughter had run down and put the dogs back in the house and so we just had to feed them and leave for our Kiwanis meeting.

Today we have snow and more snow. It is 33 degrees and the grass has a covering. It has been too warm to stick on the ground here. Higher elevations have several inches down. I pray you are all safe and well.

We are going to daughter and son in law's for dinner today.
Blessings to all.
Sue

Prayers for all of you my dear friends. I pray for each one to have the strength for the situations we face and for your families to be able to be together supporting each other. We are all part of God's family and that is where we have strength in our needs.

Today we drive to Pittsburgh for Dave's last appointment after the hip surgery. It will take the day so I am writing now. WE will see our niece and be able to give her her Christmas presents. She leaves for Louisiana to be with her Mom and Step Dad for Christmas.

Have the best day you can. Sue

I went over to a good friend's house the other day and didn't refuse a good sandwich and chips. I didn't do so well over the weekend, but have been doing ok today. Let's all pray for each other as we are entering the holiday season. It is a tough time to resist temptation and also sometimes a rough time emotionally. My prayers are with you all.

Are we all alike and yet different. I didn't do bad over the weekend but with Thanksgiving dinner ahead It is going to be hard. I was really hungry tonight. I worked outside for 3 hours yesterday afternoon because we had so many branches and dead stuff to pick up. This is the second time I have hauled away 5 big loads of leaves and twigs. We played music today and It was dark with high winds. Well it looks like I was never out there. It reminds me of dieting. You work at it really hard and drop a few pounds. Then in a minute it is back on. I am still fighting the up two pounds down two pounds.

You are all a blessing to me. emoticon emoticon

I know I am not alone in this struggle.
Be well and happy

My weekend wasn't great either, other than spending time with Haylee. I was miserable this morning when I woke up from eating so poorly. Today I have done much better...

Well I am feeling pretty good - I recorded most of my food last week, but not on weekend - starting today I have breakfast and lunch in. I am making this group as my reward. Let me explain.....if I enter my food first then I can come into this group daily check in and send a message and read all of your lovely posts. I feel hopeful this will encourage me to record my food. I am not going to condemn myself about the weekend. Love to one and all! Gotta get back to work now. emoticon

Good news again from Mellie. It is so good to hear your daughter is on the mend. legs and feet are a very big part of living.

Vicky, you and granddaughter will have time to bond. I will pray for her too. Yes from age 6 to 12 is a big part of growing up.

The BIG one for all of us was said well by Vicky. We need self control. Lord give us strength to feed the hungry family and enjoy their company. Please give us the courage to say "NO" to some of the wonderful extra food we set before us.

Prayers for all and enjoy this weekend.

Good to hear from you, Mellie! Glad your girl has some good news.

Please remember me in prayer today. Haylee and I are baking cookies! This is one thing my granddaughter really wants to do, so Gram is going to do it. Haylee's had a rough go of it the last while back, since her dad really isn't much a part of their lives, so we're trying to get her to realize how important she and her brother are to the rest of us. She has a few self destructive tendencies and is doing better in counseling, but nothing can fix a dad's lack of attention. He's been out of their lives since she was 6, and she's now 12, when she needs a Godly example of what a daddy should be, so Pap(Bob) steps in and tries to do his best.

Countdown to Thanksgiving and all the feasting that goes along with it. I'm praying for strength and self control for all of us!

Hey all! I hope everyone is well. I will try to go back and read up on everyone. Good news for my daughter; she was released from her surgeon a couple weeks ago. If you recall she was in a car wreck in late April and had multiple injuries (broken shin and calf bone and ankle on left, and broken ankle, heal, and foot bones on right). She will still have pain when she is on her feet for a long time, but not severe. Thanks again for your prayers for her.

I have been busy both at home and work. Looking forward to seeing family for Thanksgiving. Blessings to you!

Good news Rose. Yes I will pray for your sister. My husband and I had my Mom and his parents for a while. It is a 24/7 job.

Today started the music in the community we played from 11 am to 1:30 pm at Valley Health Care. There were 10 players. I was worried as some didn't think they would make it. One down and 8 to go.

Tomorrow It is bake again. this time pumpkin muffins for church (gluten free). Then I am going to start up my new Galette iron. I made waffles on it yesterday.

Enjoy the weekend and stay warm.

Hello everyone! My mom does have cancer, but they operated and think they got it all. She did lose a kidney, and had to have 4 units of blood. She now has to do 16 weeks of chemo to make sure that they did indeed get it all. I praise God that she is alive, and say thank you for all your prayers. Please pray for my sister as she will be taking care of mom as she recovers. You are all so wonderful-welcome to all the new folks! Blessings, Rose

Good news to hear you are better, Vicky.

Today is a house work day. I don't plan to leave the house so that I can catch up.

We are always starting again. Maybe we should say "Getting back on track." We don't really start from scratch so it is "back on track " for me. We are all here but just have a hick up in the process.

One more day and then Friday and the week flew by. Got to get things done today. Tomorrow is the beginning of our music group playing again and then it is music until Dec. 17th.

Blessing to all and stay strong. (Also Warm and Safe)
Sue

Hello, all! I'm feeling so much better.

I, too, have neglected logging my food, and, have gained 5 pounds! It's just been so crazy, but it's all my own fault. Starting over once again...

I think I missed yesterday. I had my annual eye appointment and my husband and I went to do a lot of errands, it was way too much.

Today we rode to the Wyndham Hotel in Pittsburgh for the Goodwill Awards presentation They give an award to 4 businesses that work with them to hire people they train that otherwise have no job. Some are handicapped. Two of the workers they had placed were really impressive. One was deaf and he gave a wonderful presentation signing. A man sitting in front of him read his hands and spoke the words for him. The deaf man was a graduate of a very important school. Yet no one would hire him. With help he was hiredt by Highmark Inc. Another was a man that you could see was limited. He learned to cook and could work in a cafeteria. He was hired by UPMC Hospital in Pittsburgh in their cafeteria. We had a good lunch. (YES I ate the cheese cake dessert) I am still hanging at 159.5. I really want to get to 150 that is on my drivers license.

We all have our ups and downs. I am not feeling bad because I know where I started and I just have to stick with it.

Wishing everyone of you a good Thursday and Friday.
Sue

Hello everyone:

Waiting for my hubby to pick me up and I have a bit of time to send a longer message. So here goes.

I am praying that the surgery went well for Rose's mom and that recovery is as quick as it takes for me to say "recovery". Mom's are so special to us aren't they. You are never too old to love your mom.

Vicky - I hope you are feeling better. You are made of good stuff so you will overcome soon! Sometimes a little rest is all you need and some peace from everyday stuff!

Sue: Sounds like you are in fit form with your new hairdo and colour. Mine is needing a redo soon. By the way, you are making me very hungry for your cookies. They sound great. You are a woman of many talents.

Liz - How are you doing....I imagine you are keeping pretty busy as well.

My grandson's birthday is tomorrow and my great nephew turns one on November 22nd. Then there is my son who also celebrates his birthday on November 22nd.

A big hello to all the new members of this group. I see that the numbers are growing.

I have not been recording my food for some time. I am happy to say I have done it for two days straight....I have gained five pounds and am going the wrong way. Ok during the day but it is at night that I am having trouble. Also eating out. Well I am gonna start over now. I can still fit in my clothes and I want to keep it that way.

By all for now - be good and keep warm - we are having nasty winter weather for the past two days and our Wed. classes at church were cancelled today due to the weather. emoticon

Hello:

I haven't been on for a while as my home computer is down. I actually only have one minute before my lunch ends to say I am here and alive and still want to read all the posts when I get a chance hopefully tomorrow.

In the meantime, I ask the Lord to bless all of you in everything you do and say and to bless you mightily in health and a big old download of wisdom for everyone.

Virtual hugs are coming your way!!!!!

Hello everyone. My mom went to her doctor's appt.s and was told several things. Because her white cell count was so high, they thought she had either leukemia or lymphoma. Praise be to God, she does not. The oncologist thinks the white cell count was so high because her body is traumatized because of the mass and wants it out of there! He said he did not find any cancer cells under the microscope. She still has to have surgery this Wed. (we thought it would be sooner) and they are not sure if the mass is cancer or not. Thanks for all of your prayers and I can tell that people are praying. Keep staying healthy and blessings to all of you.Rose

Vicky I hope you are better. This cold weather doesn't help/

I had help cleaning the garage today. A friend and her son came over. Dave's hip has bothered him and he let it get away from him. I hope this helps him catch up.

I also baked cookies for church. dark chocolate with caramel inside. You put a Rolo Caramel inside the ball of cookie dough. Today I am making sugar cookie dough and putting a mini Reese cup on top of a round circle of sugar cookie dough and then another piece of the cookie dough on top and seal it and bake. these will be Peanut butter senters.

It is cold here today but the sun is shining and that makes it great!
Have a good weekend.

I took another day off work. Still coughing and having a rough time breathing. This, too, shall pass...

Hopi is having a whiney day today. Wonder if she does that when I'm at work, or is she just doing that because I'm home today? There's a thin layer of snow out today. Hopi wasn't sure where to go. Now she just wants to clean it off my shoes...

So, does anyone have any plans for the weekend? I'm beginning to get cabin fever...

Snow flakes yesterday and during the night. 29 degrees this morning. the cold weather will be here for a few days.

Yesterday my back and leg hurt all day. It made getting things done hard to do. Today I don't have so much extra to do so I'km going to just relax a bit.

I need to practice my songs to play out. The time is going too fast.

Wishing you all a good Friday and stay well.

I just got off the phone with my mom. She wanted to see what we were doing for Thanksgiving. Bob, of course, is working. I remember when Walmart used to be closed on holidays...not anymore. Anyway, Holly and I and the grands are going to go. I'll just bring Bob a plate of goodies home...

I've been wanting a donut for 2 days now...still waiting. That feeling will go away...soon, I hope...

Yes stay home and get better. It is hard to get rid of this stuff that is going around.

Very busy today. We took our broken dining room chairs to the Doctor of Wood. (That is his place's name) The caning is old and giving away. We had a friend lean back and one just gave away. I don't need them for Christmas so they don't have to put them in that rush.

Baking cookies for church tonight. This has been a busy day. several people came to practice their songs on the Encore Organ we play on at the nursing home.

Stay well and warm Sue

I went to work today, and shouldn't have. Before I came home I told my head cook I wouldn't be in tomorrow. Came home to find Holly on the answering machine saying she wasn't coming to exercise, because she called off work today! Since we both work for the same school district, but at different schools, I guess they'll figure there is something going around the Surrena family! I may just take off Friday, too...

One thing that goes along with this is a lack of appetite. This may be a good thing...

Hope you all are feeling great!

Hope you get better quickly Vicky. Stay well everyone. This is the up and down season that makes us all sick.

Music lesson today. Were do the days go??? It is already Wednesday. Yes colder weather coming in tonight. We are really spoiled with these last few days. Sunshine and that helped. I don't do well with dark days.

I had a hair cut and color today and it looks so much better. My hair is pretty close to all grey now and the light tint she uses only give it a shine. Now if I can just keep this going and drop a couple pounds I will be doing good.

Jack came home after the day at the vet. He has to take 16 units of Insulin now. He was so glad to be home

I'm missing my Ladies Bible Study tonight. Feeling pretty miserable with a chest cold that is trying to move into my head. Usually it's the other way around. My daughter, Holly, was here to exercise, but we decided not to, since she is feeling worse than I am.

I think this is the last beautiful day we will have for a long time. Cold wet weather is coming in tonight and temps are dropping almost 4o degrees by tomorrow. I think my husband is going to take his motorcycle out one more time when he goes to minister at the nursing home tonight.

Hope you all are doing well...

Praying for Elinor during this time. Praying for Rose too as she supports her mother.

Our day is busy today. Jack, our dog that is diabetic, blind and almost deaf. has to stay at the vet so they can check his blood sugar levels every 2 hours. He will be so sad. He gets confused when you move him. I was hoping we could do it but that didn't happen..

The rest of the day there are several Veteran's Day memorials. My husband was in the Army and my brother in the Navy. We have a big parade at 6 pm. Schools are out today.

Dave finished his therapy and was dismissed yesterday. Now we are going to go to the gym to keep up the exercises. I feel better after these weeks back at the gym. We run errands on the way back so it makes a very productive morning. I just hope we keep it up. Dave is not real fond of exercising.

The week has started and let's see how it goes.

Everyone my mom's name is Elnor, and my name is Rose. She has quite a few things to get done before her surgery and feels very pressured. Please pray for her peace of mind as well as her health. Blessings to all of you and thanks. Let's stick to our plans for good health choices today!

Back to the exercise again. We take the weekends off. 4 miles on the bike, and 20 minutes between the gazelle and the weight machine. Thank the Lord, that's done...

I came downstairs to find Bob had made a pizza....well, count my calories!!! I did...

Beautiful day here today. I hope yours is just as nice...

Last night I made a chicken stuffed with pesto, it was really tasty and moist baked..It was suppose to be dipped in egg and then almond flour but I didn't have it so I dipped it in breadcrumbs.Looking forward to the holidays, just got to clean up the house and get it ready and get some food for the dinner.. emoticon

Yes we just pick up and start again. I really think this is the hardest time of year. The stresses are everywhere. Food is everywhere and recipes for the Thanksgiving Feast are everywhere. Push food adds and stories. We wonder why we want to eat when we aren't hungry.

We can do this when we support each other as we start again. Vicky you are so right. Just don't give up stop.

You are all very special to me. I really see how we are a lot alike even though we have different problems and situations. Dropping weight is a BIG and personal task. It is more difficult when you are responsible for the food for others and you have it in front of you all the time.

WE CAN DO THIS!!! Thank you each one for your efforts and sharing.

Yesterday, well, all weekend, in fact, I just wanted to eat all the time. I'd start out real good, then throughout the day, the urge to stuff my face increased. I knew it was happening, but I did it anyway. Not a lot of food, just way too often. I tried to pick healthy stuff, but at the end of the day, I was NOT a happy camper.

So, I am joining you in starting over, once again. No shame in that. The shame is when we quit trying.

Let's keep trying, all...

emoticon Good Morning, Ann that sounds like a great lesson and the dream emoticon was pretty funny, i guess God has a sense of humor!! emoticon I too teach along with the other parents and we have to come up with our own lesson and craft and snack ,sometimes an activity if there is time and the group is ages 4 thru 10 and there is anywhere from 6 to 12 children depending on who comes to church emoticon i love it...its so much fun, my lesson is going to be a story from genesis helen promises God if he gives her child emoticon that she will turn it over to him when he is grown and every month or year she packs him a suitcase emoticon so the story is about us obeying and keeping our promises to God as he does for us and the craft is a suitcase that they will put all of their promises inside!!What do you think? I am excited!! My only hope is that they walk away with something from this lesson, just one thing would be super!! emoticon I have started my xmas shopping emoticon I picked up quite a few things,i dont know what to get my husband or my secret santa..hmmm tough decisions emoticon Any ideas? I went looking for a gravy bowl and you wouldn't believe the hard time i'm having emoticon they are either too fancy or plastic and too much money,,so crazy!!
Yesterday we had to cx patients cuz the computers crashed emoticon emoticon so today we are starting earlier n working a little later..God Bless everyone in their travels, and God Bless Melva 94!! emoticon emoticon

Melva sounds like a going concern and at 94! Woo Hoo to her. Going to visit my Dad tomorrow about one hour away and will see my sister too.

Staying at a hotel for one night then back home we go for church

I took Monday as a vacation day, we get Remembrance Day off at our hospital. So that is four days off in a row. Yessssss!!! I am tired too. Been busy at work.

We are going Monday night for two hours to a cooking class at our local grocery store in conjunction with my employer and it is to watch and take part in a Chef's meal of

A fall soup
Pork Chops
Roasted Veggies
and even a dessert

All with the diabetic diet in mind.

It also says we will leave with a bag of goodies.

I have been helping lead a class at church on Wednesdays - we take turn one week I teach an the other my friend does. This week was my turn and one of the prominent themes was casting all your cares on Jesus.

I was thinking about that when I was falling asleep and I had the most neato dream about it.
It was like in technicolour and in sound too. (Oh there goes the spell check that does not like my Canadian "U")

So it was like when you have cares on you, its like wearing a bunch of extra coverings. Some cares are like light summery sweaters, they don't bother you too much. Some are like light fall jackets, not too bad. Some are heavier though, like leather coats. I saw me with a number of sweaters, jackets and coats and even winter coats on until I was about four feet wide. Even in my dream I was laughing. Because it was like Holy Spirit was showing me how dumb that would be. I can hardly walk because my arms are out my side.

The sound part I heard was when all of a sudden my focus turned to the sound and the sight of these various sweaters, jackets and coats were thrown off of me. Thud went the leather jacket especially. How heavy it was ....Then Jesus was putting all the cares (coats) on Him and they kinda just disappeared as he "took care of my cares/coats"

Cool dream to have very much an descriptive and objective lesson of what I was learning.


Ann

Prayers for all and Mom too. I really appreciate all of you. I do pray you are all safe and well.

Fourteen were here at my house yeterday. Melva was 94. (I had been told 93 before ) She was so delighted. What a wonderful lady. I hope I can ge as bright and moving as well as she is for more years.

Rain here and snow in the higher elevations today. We got the outside cleaned up on time.

Today Dave had therapy and i went to the Gym. I am hoping it will help me break this plateau. I have dropped and gained now for the last several weeks. Part of the problem I think is what I choose when we eat out.

Friday and I am tired. Everyone have a good weekend.

Let me join in with prayers for Mom..Lord you turn all things into good. You are the great Physician...let the doctors have wisdom beyond their training. Peace is being spoken over every aspect of the operation and the family as they wait.

P.S. I want you to know that both my sister and my niece (her daughter) had to have cysts removed from their stomachs. In my niece's case, she looked like she was pregnant - in both cases they were non malignant.

Sending best wishes and hugs to you today!

Ann

Hello everyone! I've got another prayer request for you...my mama has been told that she has a mass on her kidney and needs it removed. The earliest they can do this is Thursday of next week. It could just be cysts or it could be cancer. I would ask your prayers that the doctors would know how to help her and that all goes well. Thank you.

Just finished our workout. 4 miles on the bike, some easy leg lifts and arm exercises on the weight machine, and to end it off, 15 minutes on the gazelle. I am so out of it, but it feels good to know I'm back at it!!!

Sue, I guess all of us at work just pitch in and cover different parts of the missing person's job. It doesn't always work out well, but the kids get fed. We have 2 ladies retiring at Christmas, and my lunchroom supervisor is retiring then also. They're gonna have to get someone trained soon...

Love this weather here in Pa. 50's and sunny...

Ann where is this place you shopped. How far away are you???? I think we should all do a shopping trip. I'll start here south of you and pick up the others on the way north. We would have a ball. I love that you like the NAOT shoes. I worked several years back for my friend at her shoe store. She was using young college students as employees. They had messed up her client base with misspelled street names and even peoples names. Like putting some in more than once. (Kelly Kelley) I have NAOT shoes too. They are good for your feet. They are also good for my back.

Vicky how do you get along with out getting sub for employees. Your job is really important. Many kids go to school for breakfast, lunch and recess. That to them is a bigger draw than Math and reading. Your job is really important. I am still in touch with several of the cooks that worked in my schools. That is the group that meets for lunch on the first Saturday of each month at noon at some restaurant.

My daughter is having Thanksgiving at her house. I am going straight to Christmas. Starting on Nov. 21 my music group is playing every week until the 17th of December.
We have not played out since October 12 that was before Dave had surgery. All the places we missed we are playing for Christmas. I hope the group can do all 8.

Today is our music lesson and tomorrow the group meets here at my house to set up the program for Nov Dec. One of the members brings her neighbor to hear us play. She will be 936 on Thursday so our player is bringing her and we are having cake and card her. I'll let you know how these next couple days go.

We had one person off at work, too. We have substitutes, but we rarely use them.

Holly & I are beginning to plan our Thanksgiving, too. Depending on what my parents are doing, we may just have it at their house. We'll see...

I'm sore all over from working out yesterday(and hauling Kathie's furniture the day before) so I think it's gonna be the recumbent bike for me when I get off work today...ouch...

Have a lovely day, all...

An Evan-Piccone blouse, a Laura store fall sweater, Tan Jay jeans, kids clothes galore, a beautiful brown tablecloth with beautiful embroidery, queen size fitted and flat sheets and matching pillowcases. What do all these things mean? I went to the Hadassah Bazaar on Sunday after church with my hubby, my friend from church and myself. We paid $20 and got all this and more. When we finally stopped the hunting, we sat down at a round table in the cafeteria and we took up the six chairs - 3 for us and 3 for our bags. I picked up two bags for myself and Terry, my hubby got the table cloth, and other linens. We had fun - I love hunting for bargains. It is all washed up now and can't wait to see the expression on my grandkids faces.....Disney princesses, hoodies and cute pj's for my grandaughter and star wars, denim shirts and cool pjs and hoodies for my grandson.

Besides that we got to interact with some neat people who were volunteering there. No Naot shoes for me this year. These brand new shoes that usually cost $130 were selling for $25 and I have purchased a pair every year for the last four years. This year they had small sizes and huge sizes, nothing for my size 8 feet! Oh well.....there is always next year.

I learned a lot about myself before we went. Our pastor was talking about the tall order we Christians have to love - our families of course, our friends and neighbours and even enemies. He was talking about our you the kind of person who arrives at church with a here I am demeanour or do we go to the person who looks lonely etc.

I had a challenge my friend wanted to go to sale, but could be found no where, I was itching to go but could not find her. Then I found her and she had to go to someone's car. Then I was starting to get crabby (inside my head - not noticeable yet) so we finally got going and she said do you have lots of money with you? My hubby said sure! When we got there the normally helpful me was only steps away from the Naot shoes and someone wanted help and he was in a wheelchair! Of course I helped but inside I just wanted to get into the shoes! Well I made all the right decisions and on the outside no one knew. But I did - I realized what was important here -- I said Ok Lord, you got me! Now no condemnations at all, but I learned my lesson for next time.

Ann

Wonderful news about Kathie. I am sure you will miss her.

We worked outside yesterday to get rid of branches and leaves ...again. High winds bring all the stuff down. The lawn looks good for today. Dave has therapy and so I go to the gym there. This is the start of day 3. With eating and tracking and working hard outside and inside something should break this plateau.

Have a good week and smile a lot. It makes the day go better.
Praying blessings to all of you.

We're going to get the rest of Kathie's stuff today after I get off work. She was so happy to get into her own place again. She came by last night to get a few things she forgot, and I yelled at her to "Go home!" and we laughed...and hugged...and cried. She was here 2 months and I'm gonna miss her...

I'm getting back to my exercise tomorrow. My daughter is going to stop by after we get off work and we're going to start using the equipment that's gathering dust upstairs.

I lost 3 pounds!!! yea!!!

Hope you all have a great Monday...

Second day back on track. We worked outside on the lawn. I am really tired. All the leaves and branches that were down. It looks better but not real perfect. Too cold and too much wind. We didn't get snow YET.....

Glad to hear from everyone. Here we go tomorrow starting another week. We can do this with support.

Prayers for all of you and Blessings too.

Started back logging my food today. I caught my daughter doing it after lunch, so I followed her example. It makes me feel more in control when I do that.

Sun is shining and it's beautiful here in Pa. Bob & Nathaniel went for ride on the bike trails and we ladies are just sitting around, watching cartoons, because Haylee has the remote...

Hope the scales show some progress tomorrow...
