Saturday was raining and dark. I was nervous about that evening. I sat and had a quiet time and prayed to be calm and get through all that I had to say. Well, God is good and when I rang the bell to start the meeting and opened I had this surge of calm. The words just came out and my worry about seeing the words was gone. I know that the spirit of God was with me for the 2 hours of that time. I only stumbles on a word a couple times. Two of the men were a little long in their speeches. Our opening is always the pledge, a song "America" and prayer. At the end we closed saying the Kiwanis prayer together. there was food left over and the place boxed it up and we sent to to Rosenbaum Family House. That place for people that have someone in the hospital to stay. They need food to feed these people. Everything worked out just great.

Start you day with a prayer and smile.

Yes Sue, I agree with Vicky......you are a hard worker that pitches in and do things with a passion. Now, is the time to enjoy! Let us know how it went.

Sue, I am so glad your partner at work and you are beginning to bond and support one another. I find that has happened with me and my last three new partners at work. It takes time but it is worth all the effort in the end.

I went to get those unwanted new blood cells zapped in my left eye that form when my eye is searching for oxygen but cannot find. (That is the lay version of what I have been experiencing) on Monday last and this time I went 1/2 hr. early and I got in so fast. I was brought in immediately by the nurses and this was before 9 a.m. which was my appt. By 9:20 a.m. I was out of there and calling my daughter in law to pick me up. The last time it was almost lunch time before I was out.

When I was done this time, the doctor said something that was less than encouraging, "let's see if that does some good". So, since it was Tuesday, I went to the Rhema (Seniors) meeting and praised God and heard encouraging words. I was definitely less sensitive to the light this time. I was enveloped in good words, praising, and verses from the Bible. It felt so good to do so.

Yippee I am going back to work on Monday.

Ann

Just stopped by to say this is my Event day. Tonight is the big anniversary birthday dinner fo our Kiwanis club. I finished my dress alterations. and now I need to fluff me up a bit.

After this event I am hoping to have some me time and May 1 start my goals over. I am a stress eater and this situation has not been my best in the food and exercise part.

Wonderful news about the partner. I am so glad because it is so important to like the people you are working with.

Yes May 1 is my begin again date. Tomorrow is the big 50th birthday event for Kiwans and I think I am almost ready. Sunday will be a welcome day.

We went to a music program at Vittone's Music store in Greensburg, PA. It was a wonderful time.

Now to work on name tags for tomorrow night.

My new partner has done well these last 2 days. Prayers answered, as usual!

I got a private email from MOLLIEMAEN today. She has left the team, but at least she made an effort to be a part of it. So many join and never post. We weren't quite what she was looking for, but I must say, I'm going to miss her Daily Dedication posts...

Yesterday, when I got home from work, I cleaned my dining room and changed it around. Now the cat & dog can get up to the window and make noise at the neighbors again...what was I thinking???

My weight dropped about 3 pounds last week and this week, it's back up again. Too much sodium, I know that. Sue, I think I'll be starting fresh again in May, also...

Hope everyone is staying warm & dry. It's rainy and cold here. Have a blessed day, all...

Stress build up has been my problem lately. Kiwanis 50th birthday event is this Saturday evening. I pray that I can remember all the names and the words. I plan to have a weitten page to help me. Tomorrow we set up with our information and banners etc. We will have 53 people at this point. I have eaten too much at night these two weeks as the pressure keeps coming. May will be a start again time.

Ann let us know how you are doing. Vichy I have prayed that the girl would get settled and realize what needs to be done. Still praying for you and your helper.

Blessings to all

Hey, all. I've been gone to the cottage for a few days and I don't have internet there...yet...and I'm still trying to catch up...

The enemy has been trying to keep me stressed out about the new girl, but today was a good day with her and tomorrow will be, too, because the Lord knows I need someone I don't have to babysit while I work.

Have a great day, all...

Ann I pray that that is successful and your sight is better. Some people seem to have cataract surgery and do well. My two friends have had problems. One other friend was very pleased.

I have a cataract in the right eye but with the macular degeneration they don'e think having it removed will help.

Rain and storms here. We even have had some flooding in the lower areas. We live on a hill so we are safe.

Prayers for all
Sue

I hope that everything goes well. I have to admit I am a little envious. My cataract surgery left me with sight less than what was promised. I will be praying for you.

Hey, everyone, we've started a new topic board called Our Daily Dedication, and our new member, MOLLIEMAEN has offered to lead it. I made it a sticky topic. Our Daily Devotions board has become nonexistent, and I do apologize for that. This one is about dedicating our day to the Lord. Mollie can probably explain it better than I can...

Okay, I just had to delete the whole last paragraph. We were going up to the cottage to plant some flowers, but now, the weather says 55 and rainy. We'll go Monday when it's 75 and sunny! So I guess we're going window shopping, for an actual window for the cottage, one that will face the woods. Yea!!!

My weight has been staying down, thank You Lord! Now to get it moving lower...

Have a lovely day, all...

Rain and storm last night. Not a good day today for a yard sale. I guess we will see.

Next week is really busy. I will be glad when the Kiwanis 50th birthday is over.

Ann Count your Blessigns

Count Your Blessings
Bing Crosby
When I'm worried and I can't sleep
I count my blessings instead of sheep
And I fall asleep counting my blessings
When my bankroll is getting small
I think of when I had none at all
And I fall asleep counting my blessings

I think about a nursery and I picture curly heads
And one by one I count them as they slumber in their beds
If you're worried and you can't sleep
Just count your blessings instead of sheep
And you'll fall asleep counting your blessings

I don't know if there is more.

Enjoy the weekend.
Sue

Love your picture o your cat Snoopy snuggled up in your wagon. I can almost feel the warm sun beaming down on Snoopy!

In Southwestern Ontario, the grass is very green now. The leaves are budding on the trees. We had a couple of really summer like days, it has become colder now, but the last couple of days were very sunny.

Today it is raining softly but I am inside working. My eyes feel much better today, thanks for your prayers.

I was thinking about putting in some "icicle Pansies" which are pretty sturdy but maybe not quite yet.

My husband has not had a fall for quite some time. However, we were at a used cd, dvd store that had 30% off so it was quite full with people. I was around the corner from hubby, but close enough to hear the noise. He fell and when he fell he knocked someone close to him behind the knees by accident and that person fell on top of him! I found out that Terry had dropped his cane and when he went to pick it up he lost his balance and fell backwards. The guy who fell on top of him looked to be in his early 30s and was built like a football player. He seemed to be ok and he said yes he was since he fell onto my husband. It took three guys to get Terry up from the ground.

I used to work in safety and we talked over what happened before he fell and we decided if he drops his cane again, then just to ask me or someone to pick it up. I believe most people would help.

Yesterday, he saw the Occupational Therapist again and got lots of information about The Boys and Girls Club which also has senior activities and two pools, one regular swimming pool and one therapeutic one. They have other things as well. Other info pamphlets were given like all sorts of appliances to help do up buttons, etc. were given to him.

Well, I am going to sign up for the next Weigh In at work that starts the end of May. I am hoping that after I recover from this laser surgery on April 26, I will be able to walk more and get some of the dreaded (over the winter hip expansion) cement hips to clear up a bit.

Do you remember the old BIng Crosby song, Counting Your Blessings? My granddaughter has been having trouble lately getting to sleep. I am not sure I know all of the words but I do remember the tune. So I have been singing it to her. I think it goes like this:

When you are tired, but cannot sleep
Just count your blessings instead of sheep
And you'll fall asleep counting your blessings!

Does anyone know the rest of the song?

Any way I know that if I started counting my blessings I would be doing it all day and all night.

Finally, here is one of my blessings.... Got a colouring book that came out from our free library. I just thought to myself I will have to get some pencil crayons.....not a prayer just a thought. Yesterday, on a table in our lunchroom was a Nike shoe box full of pencil crayons, markers, pencils and craft stuff with a sign, Free on it. I took it........looked through it and probably 3/4 of the stuff was still fresh and working. I coloured a picture too!

Be blessed!!! emoticon

This has been a busy week. I worked outside a bit. The flower beds are fluffed up a bit and ready for new annuals for color. I also cleaned up my small vegetable patch. It is almost ready too. My cat Snoopy decided to get a rest in my work wagon.

Hello back to everyone. Glad to hear from you Ann. You are in my prayers.

Last night the Kiwanis committee met at my house and we cover most the the things needed for the big dinner on April 30th to celebrate 50 years of service in the community. I am very relieved to have help and a good plan.

Today is an outside work day. Weeding the flower beds and fluffing up the yard. Rain is forceast tomorrow.

Hello everyone: Just a quick note to let you know that I am thinking of you all. I can't wait until I can go on several times a week to my Christians Overcoming Compulsive Overeating group. aka COCO. Spent the last two evenings overnight with the grandkids while Mom was working. It was fun, but I am looking forward to sleeping in my own bed tonight.

Vicky: situations can change at work with the drop of a hat. We have that happening here too.

Our weather is very nice. Yesterday it was 26 degrees celcius. (22 is like 70 degrees Farenheit. Today the high is 16. Beautiful sun.......

I lost my favourite baseball hat - black with sparkles when I left it behind at MacDonalds this morning on the way to work. I called but they think someone snafooed it. I had a sausage mcmuffin with egg and decaf coffee. no way was I eating that fried potato stuff! emoticon

Vicky you are in the middle of the end of the year bounce around. It is so hard when people leave and then jobs open and everyone shuffles. I hope you have a good person step in to your kitchen.

It is beautiful here and I am enjoying the day. My husband ran errrands and it was quiet around here.
Happy Tuesday to everyone.Sue

Well, things are gonna be changing again in our kitchen. A girl from one of the other schools has turned in her notice so, most likely, someone from our kitchen will be filling the position. We just have to wait and see who they decide on. The boss has the final say. I know it won't be me, because my daughter works at the other school, and, they would have to train someone for my position. I think they just want someone they can slip into the position smoothly, without causing much disruption in our kitchen. Then we would be looking for someone else AGAIN! The job has to be posted for 2 weeks anyway and if anyone is interested, they can apply. I just got off the phone with someone from our kitchen who is interested. I told her to go for it! Then she will be in a kitchen with all Christian coworkers. I'd be happy for her...

I hope you all are having as lovely a day as I am. It's beautiful outside...

Hello, It is good to hear from all of you.
Ann I know that your eyes will heal and the doctors will do the job. I always pray for a persons surgery with the last part - Lord steady and carefully guide the hands that do this procedure.
Vicky stress gets me every time. I am counting the days until this big Kiwanis event is over. The stress of getting everything correct is hard. I pray that you and the new partner will finish the year in good spirits. Will she be back with you next year???

Montana sounds wonderful. I would like to visit sometime. Some friends of ours have family there.

the weather has been beautiful and it makes me feel better. I am setting goals for this week. Just day by day because that is about all I can think about this week.

God's blessings to you all
Sue

Spring has sprung in Montana, until it snows again (HA) One never knows what to expect here! Ann, I am also wearing sunglasses today...Vicki, if the new girl is anything like I was when I was young, she just needs to learn the routine from someone who is experienced (Like You!) I will pray that she will learn the ropes soon! Sue, your flowers are lovely. Let us not lose heart in doing good (Or eating right) for in due time we shall reap:0

Hello everyone:

Vicky I am so glad that you have settled in with your new partner at work. I know it has been a frustrating time for you.

Sue: Thank God you have a good car and you and your husband are ok.

It is an honour to keep praying for Sudie. Our God does hear our prayers!!!

I actually drove the car today. I wore a big bill baseball cap, my glasses for distance and a big pairr of sunglasses over my regular prescription glasses. Yippee!!!! Still having trouble with the computer but I can stand the light on at my desk now. Still wear sunglasses at lunch inside. I am sure they think I must be a celebrity in my Foster Grants!

One more week at work and one day. On the 26th I go for another laser eye surgery. Then four days off work to recover. Hope the weather is as nice as today. It was very warm outside, like a summer day.

Today my daughter in law, and my grandaughter went to a ladies event at my church called, sip, snack, swap. We all had brought in three items earlier on to swap. We had a lovely breakfast, played some games (I used to hate them, but they were fun) We got to pick three items one at a time between games and then at the end, there was still some stuff left and we got to "shop" free for 5 minutes. The rest, mostly clothes and shoes and some other stuff is going to the new Teen Challenge shop being set up soon in my neighbourhood.

My seven year old grandaughter absolutely loved going and there was another girl there her age. She got two differenet (new in package) lip gloss and some other suitable stuff for her.

I got two leather purses and some jewelry and mikasa dishes, not a whole set but there are only two of us here! emoticon

On Thursday, I got prayed for in our Healing Rooms and that felt so good. I put a request for a total healing of my left eye. I am so grateful for what doctors can do, but I can expect more from my Jesus! emoticon

by for now, keep keeping on, my sparkfriends.

Church campground opens today so we will finally have utilities at the cottage. I think we're going up later to clean. Bob is still in bed and I'm not sure what his plans are.

I gained a few pounds early this week. Stress eating, I'm sure. Then, when a friend called to tell me how badly she is doing with her eating, I almost had no comfort to offer her. Still, we try. She has joined and quit Weight Watchers so many times. I hooked her up with my friend, Betsy, who also joined Weight Watchers. They are going to the same meetings, so I think they can encourage each other. I, on the other hand, have lost a couple of those pesky pounds, and this week, I'm sure I will do better, in Jesus Name!

I have settled in with my new partner at work. I still have to keep her moving, but I'm praying that soon, she will get tired of that and just start automatically doing things without being asked...

We're having a beautiful day here, and I'm hoping we get the motorcycle out for a ride, if not today, then tomorrow. Do you think spring is finally here for us in the northeast?

Friday and a busy day. I went shopping with my daughter. We had such a good time. She had the day off and we didn't hurry around. It was fun and relaxing. We decided we need to do it more often.

Enjoy the weekend. Blessings to all.

Dave went to the insurance place today. Now it is wait and get the car fixed. We are fine but it was a surprise. We also had Spaghetti on Sunday. (Good thinking)

Montana sounds like a great place,. I have friends that moved there. Today is lovely. The temperature was in the 50s and i went to the gym. It feels good.

Prayers for Sudie and all of you. I have a list of our group but we haven't hear from some for a while.

I had to lift the shoulders of a new dress I bought. I got that done today. It was sleeveless and the arm holes were too big. I had looked back at some of the Kiwanis dinners and I was wearing the same 2 dresses. My daughter and I had gone shopping and I got a nice one on sale. I plan to wear it when I am doing the Kiwanis 502th birthday event. If I get a good picture I will post it. I have not purchased any clothing for a long time. I am slowly fitting into clothes that I have not worn for a long time.

Blessings to all
Sue

Here in Pa., this morning, we still have snow on the ground, but it's supposed to be in the 50's later and the 70's by the end of the week. We get to open the cottage on the 15th, so I'm pretty excited.

My part of training the new girl is finally over, but she will be my cashier at lunch from now on, at least until the end of the year. Just gotta keep her moving when clean up time comes...

Hope you all have a wonderful day...

Looks like Montana is doing the best weatherwise on the site. Unusual!! We have had 50-70 degrees the past few days, and spring is definitely in the air! And yet, this morning the wind was very cold, and it looked like it might snow. Then the sun came out this afternoon, and one would never have guessed it would today! Anyway, thanks for the prayers for Sudie. Do keep them coming please...and Vicky we must think alike--I am having spaghetti today too, although mine will be for supper. Ann, I will be praying for your eyes, and Sue that you will be able to get to your weight on your driver's license. My prayers are with you too, Vicky as you train the new girl. Blessings to all, and remember God is Good!!!

You guys are okay? Things happen so fast! It does pay to have a sturdy car...

Had a really good service this morning. I really got into the worship. Pastor Bill's sermon was good, too. Then I sat for a couple hours with my Kindle, while Bob was in a church board meeting. I have the Bible on my Kindle, but this morning, it wanted me to update the app, but there is no wifi at the church and it wouldn't let me go past that to use the Bible. Next week, I go back to my REAL Bible...

Well, lunch is ready. Hubby made spaghetti...hmmm...

Yesterday was a wake up call. We were going to pick up a friend and go to lunch. We were on University Avenue driving in the right hand lane by the new Sheets.gas store. We were heading toward town. A car was next to us on the left in that lane. Suddenly he put on his breaks. Dave did too but is was not fast enough. A car was turning from the opposite direction (in the left lane coming from the Pleasant St. Bridge ) The lady driving hit us in the left fender area. Her red Honda Sonata car was really damaged. The police came and we moved our car onto the Sheets parking area and she was able to just get her car off the street. Thank you Subaru Outback. It is a heavy and well built car. (see Pictures) Phone camera's are really great!!

I have 9 more weeks of school left. I can do this! I'm doing better today.

My daughter had her 36th birthday today. Yes, we had cake & ice cream, but I behaved myself and didn't have seconds!

Gotta get to bed so I can get up for church tomorrow...

Vichy you and I are alike in the stress. I am sorry you get the head aches. I have the eating part. This is a stressful month for me. I can't seem to stay totally away from the evening stress eating. I have to get back to more fruit. My husband always wants something to take his evening pills with. (ice cream, cookies, cake, etc, ) I try to eat fruit. I need to start puching tthe fruit again. I have been praying for the work to get better. for you. We are now in April and then May so there are about a couple months of weeks left.

Prayers for everyone.

I've just about had it with this weather. I'm so ready for green grass and sunshine.

Had a meltdown and a food binge night before last. Stress at work while I'm waiting for the new girl to catch on and settle in. Even my face is breaking out from stress. Today I started out with a migraine even before my feet hit the floor. Still have the shadow of a headache, but it's so much better than this morning. As far as the food binge goes, I started back on liquids the next day, just to get a jump on it. If I don't, the binges will continue...

Have a wonderful weekend, all...

Hello everyone. Winter ice cycles from the rood in front of the kitchen window. Now the tulips are blooming. This morning they were frozen because we have snow again. More snow predicted this weekend.

Heading up to the music store in Greensburg Pa. I am going this time to see what the lessons are like up there. Dave is going because Harbor Tools is the store close to the music store.
emoticon He has a coupon form the add they sent out. We don't have a tool store here.

Looks like rain today but not too bad. I was outside with the animals yesterday afternoon and it was lovely. I could use a few more days like that.

My flowers are perking up after the snow. Now they say snow on Sunday again. I have made it to the gym 3x this week and hope to go Friday. It is helping me feel better but I still have a few pounds that i gained back that like me so well they seem to be hanging on. I guess we all have a few of those.

Happy Spring.

Snow Sunday and then snow today. It is gone now this afternoon. Dave took Teddy for a walk.

Glad you are getting along okay at work Ann. I hope you continue to heal up and feel good.

Vicky Can you make her a list. Are you the supervisor? Cafeteria manager? (more Pay!!!) Some place she needs to just have a list and do what she is to do. You will be worn out if you have to do both jobs. I understand your frustration.

Blessings to both of you.

Yes, I woke up to a snow covered lawn this morning. Ready for spring. Bob's apple tree has buds but I don't know if they'll survive...

New girl at work is trying my patience, but I'll survive. I kinda feel bad for her. I hated starting a new job and trying to remember everything. They've cut my hours since she was hired(I don't have a problem with that), but I end up doing my job and most of hers, too. She's like a shadow following me everywhere, but not remembering what she is supposed to be doing, poor girl. Did I mention that I have never liked training people? God? Help???

Weight is still the same so I'm okay with that.

Have a lovely day, all...

Ann Prayers for you that your eyes are able to heal and you can see. Prayers that work is not too bad this week. I understand eye problems because I have eye problems. My right eye is the one that bothers most. I have Dry Macular Degeneration. coming on slowly.

Vicky It is hard to find a place to have a big group. You would think that a restaurant would be glad to have a guaranteed evening. Our group met every Tuesday. Then we had to find a new place to meet because that Shoney's closed. We found Boston Beanery but they had another group there on one of the Tuesdays so we met 3 Tuesdays.

Yes Change is hard and it takes awhile to get use to working with a new person. At least we are getting closer to the end of the school year.

We had a full covering of snow this morning. It is cold and the sun just peeked out. I am hoping it all mel;ts.
Blessings to you today and this week.

Good afternoon...Prayers for Sudie are coming from me as well.

Sorry I haven't been on the computer for a while as I had the laser eye surgery on the 29th at about 11 a.m . and it hurt a bit at the time, but on the way home, i thought oh this is Tuesday, why not go to the Rhema (Seniors Meeting at church) I was ok feeling, wow, so I could sing and take part. I forgot that the freezing was still in. It started to hurt in the p.m. I ususally wear dark glasses for several days but this time, I had to put a black scarf over my dark glasses to protect me from the stoplights and the street lights at night!!!! It is definitely better now.....going to work on Monday but ususally I can't take the computer for long. This is a test for me. I am so grateful they can do something to work on the abnormal blood vessels that form on my eye. My right eye is aok, with my glasses I can read all of the eye chart even the smallest line with just one mistake. I do have to go back for the 5th laser eye surgery in one month's time. This prevents my eye from getting worse and dr. also said to prevent glaucoma. I pray to God for a miracel to have total good vision not just peripheral vision (spelling?)

Vicky I am so sorry that you have had your buddy Betsy taken away from your side at work. I have been so blessed to have two people in a row that were with me that we got along so well. I miss them when they are away, on vacation etc. I pray that even though the replacement person is young and not experienced in working that you will soon form a bond with her.

P.S. They have some very nice hair colouring products out now....it will be an adventure for you and Holly.

Sue, I too had an easter egg I have to admit. Tradition was we always had a Laura Secord egg for easter when I was growing up. I did buy the smallest one they had, but had it all in one night.

Our easter was great we went to Good Friday breakfast and service with the grands and had dinner and table games with our daughter in law and the grands on Easter sunday.

Saw my dad on the 31st ....we went with him to an appointment at the CNIB (Canadian National Institute for the Blind) and they helped him to know which mouse he should get for his computer (one with a wheel so if he pressed control with his left hand and twirl the wheel with his right hand to make it larger for him to see any thing that was too small.

Before I leave I send out a prayer to God to have available meeting rooms for our Christian groups that are big enough, with great food and at a reasonable price. Cause them to open up Lord....where two or three are together you are in the midst. Just think about the Holy Spirit in bigger groups WOW.....love you all emoticon

Our Christian Motorcyclist chapter is going thru the same thing. Last summer, the Bonanza restaurant, where we've always met, closed, and we're still trying to find a place that will hold at least 50 people on the 3rd Sunday of the month. The last couple of meetings have been at the restaurant at the airport. Too small, too noisy, and too expensive! So we're still waiting...

I'm hoping to get Holly to color my hair. I'm starting to look older than I am in my head!

This has been a stressful week for me, too, with training the new girl, and not having Betsy with me. Things change...I must adapt...

Have a wonderful weekend, all...

The restaurant our Kiwanis club met in closed on Monday. They called me at 4:15 Monday and told me that our club would have to find another place. I have spent this week getting our places for our meetings. I hope to find another restaurant with a room that can take us. So far most of them have been booked We meet 2 Tuesdays each month.

This last week was not so good with mals as I had a lot of stress. April is here and not is is start again.

Prayers for all of you

This has been a hard week. Many things were disrupted and had to be changed. I think this up and down cold to warm almost hot weather is making me feel bad. My stress level has been up as each thing has to change. I have tried to eat carefully or I will binge.

Hope for us all to succeed and so I pray for strength.

So far today, I've had a good day, food wise. Other than that, I'm very emotional for some reason. Not angry, just weepy...

Anyway, My weight has been getting lower, with hesitations between each pound lost, but at least it's not going back up. Slow, but steady...

Rose, Prayers for Sudie. Congratulations to you in the weight loss. Wonderful.

Vicky, That was a surprise to me. I don't think the question should have been made in public.
My goal is to weigh what it says on my driver's license. I get there and then gain back a couple This time I am aiming for about 5 pounds below that.

Hello everyone! It sounds like everyone had a good Easter. Am managing to hold my own as far as losing weight goes. I have lost about 10 pounds since January. Please pray for my sister Sudie once again as she is still struggling to find a good antidepressant. Her physical health is getting better, but her mental health is not. Thank you. Rose

I think what beats all is that, my husband has never had any idea what my weight was, whether I'm up or down on the scale. Now, he knows, and it actually shames me. It's just a number, and I'm the same size to look at, but I really would have preferred to keep the actual number to myself. If it ever happens again, I'll have some kind of snappy comeback, but I couldn't believe he chose to ask THAT question. I mean, I don't care what any of the other men in the place think about it, but there are some things a wife likes to keep to herself...grrrr...

Started training a new girl(and I do mean "girl"), to work in my kitchen today. They're taking my best buddy, Betsy, away from me and giving me someone who's never worked this kind of job before. I had never worked in a kitchen before, so I shouldn't judge. She's a lovely person and she'll do great, but they're taking Betsy...I have nothing in common with a 20 year old girl...I have 3 years to go to retirement. I wanted Betsy with me all the way.

This must be my "pity party" day. Forgive me, all...

OH My!!! I didn't know you had to put that on that kind of paper work. That is why I have had my goal to drop back to the weight on my drivers license/ I got their brfore Chirstmas but now I stillhave the few added pounds to get back there. I am going to set my new goad to 5 pounds under that amount.

Good luck. We are all in this together. You are not alone.

I went to the local gun shop to pick up a handgun I had ordered a few weeks ago. Of course, you have to fill out all the required paperwork and, of course, that ugly weight question is on there. So, I put it down on the paper and thought, "I hope they don't look at it until after I leave." Then, don't ya know, the guy asks me right out loud, in a gun shop full of men, "What is your weight?" Not "How tall are you?" or "What color are your eyes?", but "What is your weight"...So, I told him, and said "At least that's what it is this week!" Honestly, if that don't make you buckle down and get busy, nothing will. I'd better get busy. I already have my next new gun picked out.

Have a lovely day all...

Well, it is Monday again. We have almost finished March and I don't know what I did to get through January and February. This year is going fast. I did well Sunday until Sunday night and i had gotten an coconut egg. My husband doesn't eat coconut so it was all mine. Today I hope to work some of it off.

We had a good weekend and I hope all of you did too.
This week is not as busy and I am glad because I got too tired. I eat when I am tired.

Stay you plan and we will keep going.
