Hello ladies...

The sick time accrues over the years. Its starts over every year. I get close to 1,000 hours every year. Its the only good thing about seniority there. Other than that... They don't think much about people with seniority. We don't get raises most of the time because they feel we make too much money. Ha ha...there are a lot people who make more money than me....they walk in the door at a higher rate. I had to work for mine!

Have a good one

Carol

Evening friends,

I had a great day with Linda. We went to the mall where I thought they had a Lane Bryant but they did not but did have a SOMA. Where they were having a 2 for $59 sale .... yes I said SALE !!! It's ridiculous that bras cost that much but I did get 2, I had to get them they fit perfect and felt great on and no wonder they charge so much. I paid cash for 1/2 and put the other 1/2 on credit card card. No choice I needed them !!! I'll just have to get over it.

Cheryl cooking at home is very cost effective for sure not to mention healthier too. Leave the door open I'll stop by, see if you can spot me, LOL !!! BTW - Hope belongs to Cynthia, Carol has Linda, LOL !!! Keep up the great job you are doing with your fitness hon.

Cat glad your new tracker arrived and you can monitor things again. Your evening out last night sounds like it was awesome. Speaking of art, there is a new thing going on around here lately involving painting and wine !!! You pay $20 (I think) and bring a bottle of wine to a location and the art supplies are there for you and the project for the evening. I love to paint so it sounds like a fun social night to me. I love dried fruits too and also freeze dried as they are crunchy, apples and blueberries are my fav.

Well I haven't had any dinner yet so I'm gonna put Dusky to bed and fix a light something and settle in for an evening of pre-recorded shows tonight. I hope you all enjoy a relaxing pleasant evening as well.

Sweet dreams emoticon

Good afternoon…

Carol – hope you use some of those sick time hours.

I’m so happy to have the new Activity Tracker. It’s such a motivator. I was able to install the dongle from the one I lost on my work computer so now I can check my progress during the day at work too. Very cool!

Wow Cheryl – 9 miles!!! You rock!!! That makes my hip hurt just thinking about it. If I walk more than 4 I’m hurtin for certain. Maybe you’re younger 

Birthday dinner last night was great. We sat in an open courtyard and enjoyed the stars and the airplanes flying right overhead making their final descent into the county airport up the street. I had the special which was a semi-spicy braised beef dish, it was absolutely delicious. I couldn’t resist trying their margarita, just one! Didn’t have the tortillas or any dessert so did pretty good. There were 7 of us and since we get together only once a year it was a special evening. A bunch of artists so very interesting conversation, got me jazzed to do some artwork again.

Got out the dehydrator this a.m. so tonight I can start slicing and drying apples. One of my favorite snacks. They really don’t need anything added although some people add a little lemon juice or cinnamon.

Good luck with the bra shopping DG. I know the feeling. Jill and I went to the monastery for the Sunday service. Gotta go and figure out why there is a giant fly in my office. So far from any outside access. Yuck!!

You make me laugh, DG.

I'm feeling weird this morning - just not quite right. I've misplaced my wallet and hope I haven't lost it. Dang, I hate not having my stuff.

That walk yesterday was so awesome and I'm really trying to keep my spirit up from that accomplishment. I think a cleansing of the house with some sage and de-clutering will go a long way in helping me feel better.

I'm down a couple of ounces and will go to the gym tonight. We ate all our meals at home (except for my lunch with a friend) last week including Fri, Sat & Sun! All those groceries I bought, we ate. Very proud of our efforts and team work. I think we're going to try to make it to Thursday on the rest of the food (cereal, soup and some frozen meat). That will be a huge success for me and Terri (not over spending on eating out both $$$-wise and calorie-wise). I think we can do it.

Carol, definitely take care of yourself and take some sick time. I don't get colds or the flu, but every once in a while I need a mental health break. You need to take care of yourself and I hope you do it sooner rather than later. I bet Hope and the kiddies would love to have you home sick for a couple of days. emoticon

I'm getting excited for Halloween and hope it doesn't rain. If the weather holds, we may have an open house.

Wishing you all a really great week.

Good Monday friends,

Carol if you are feeling this way you def should be doing something about it some way that works for you. Remember your healthy is way more important at this stage of the game. You have not made it this far in your living healthy journey to have your employer knock you down with stress, sleep deprivation, and neglect to your body !!! It should be unacceptable to all who are in your shoes and something really should be said to the higher ups by a committee of workers. Please take care of yourself hon.

Cheryl are you kidding me ...9 miles !!! WOW that's fantastic !!! Just goes to show you that having a friend to do fitness with, really takes your mind off of the negativity about it.. You are doing GREAT !!! Tracking is def one of the BEST tools for losing weight but I have to admit I hate doing it. It just takes so much time but it does work. Maybe I too should be rethinking about doing that again to get me back on losing track !!!

Cat, thanks for sharing the granny smith apple info. I had no idea and they are my 2nd fav ... 1st is the honey crisp, YUM !!! The Birthday apple pie sounds like a nice alternative to BD cake. Your BD is Nov 6th right ?? So did you and Jill got to the monastery for service or another reason?

Well ladies today my friend Linda and I are going to the mall in search of 2 new bras for me. I hope Lane Bryant has a BOGOF sale going on. I want to take a look at SOMA also and see what they have in my price range. Why are good bras so darn expensive ????? Wish i could just let my girls go free but OH NO !!! they need their support, other wise I would just fall over !!!!

Ok guess that's another TMI moment so on that note I will wish you all a wonderful MINDFUL MOTIVATED Monday. Do your best !!!

Hello PLOF women.

Carol, how did you let so much sick time build up. I think you should really take some sick days because if you can't function from being tired is no different than being unable to function due to a fever or headache.

Cat and Jill, glad your weekend was great. I cannot eat apples, oranges, or anything tart. It hurts my jaws.

Oh-oh phone ringing have to go. Hang in here and have a great day,

Good morning.....

I'm running late and very tired. Our company is so huge I doubt they know what is going on. I think I need to do something...I can't handle this. I'm barely functional this morning. If it doesn't get better I will start calling in sick...I've got 900 hours. I feel sleep deprived, my fitness is suffering, I'm at an all time low on my steps for the week, and the scale is going up. Its a losing situation.

Have a good day!

Carol

Ohhh, we are having some beautiful weather today. Your weekend sounds very peaceful and fall-filled, Cat.

We got our walk in this morning and because the bathroom was closer if we walked went further out, we got an extra hour added to our walk. It was more than we were anticipating and ended up doing just shy of 9 miles. Really proud of our efforts today.

Will be weighing myself first thing tomorrow.

Hi lovely PLOF...

It is probably the most beautiful day of the year today. Fall colors all around and a nice warmish breeze. Jill and I went to the monastery this a.m., which was really nice and peaceful. We split an oatmeal cookie at tea time afterward.

We picked up a huge box of apples on our trip - came out to only 80 cents a lb. I see applesauce and dried apples in my future, and perhaps an apple pie Jill will make for my bday! We heard a story on the road on NPR how Granny Smith are the best apples as they have the lowest sugar content so that's what we got. The PhD that did the research study said that they were very good at whittling the waistline.

I just want to spend the entire day outside. But alas some way overdue housekeeping, etc. Later is another friend Cheryl's bday and our group of peeps is celebrating at a Mexican restaurant in Georgetown. They feature organic and sustainable ingredients so I'm thinking I'll be able to make healthy choices if I can avoid the alcohol!!

Debigene, I'll for a selfie of the haircut. Carol - hope they can moderate your hours SOON. That is WAAY too many for someone our age.

Hugs to everyone,
Cat

Hi everyone-

Very sorry to hear about RubyClaire. We all work so hard to get to our golden years and it makes me sad that people have to fight the fight against cancer when we should be able to be enjoying life and leaving the worrying behind.

Cat and Jill, your road trip sounds fun. It really is a beautiful time of year.

I swam yesterday morning and it felt really good and then we went to a party last night and I had two beers and a little bit of cheese and crackers.

Off to walk with BlessedBeing this morning before cleaning house, laundry, etc. and football.

I weighed myself this morning and although I'm feeling good, I'm still up on the scale! I need to really evaluate my nutrition and if I don't get it under control will have to start tracking every morsel.

Have a great day, all!

Good morning friends.

Cat glad you made it home safely and that you both had a nice trip. Sounds like the scenery was lovely !!! Hope to see a pic of your new "do" soon. I know it is very sad news about Ruby, altho she did not start the team she was very instrumental when I joined. I do hope she is doing the best she can. I do remember she had a good family connection and a network of good friends.

Carol it really amazes me that your employer does not see the health issues these ridiculous hours create !!! Not to mention the stress the fact that sleep deprivation is harmful not to just self but others as well. Is this something that your company is used to doing? I have never heard you refer to in in past years. I am very concerned for you hon.

Heading out shortly for my installation of my new tires and a stop for milk and coffee, then back here for laundry detail !!! The weather doesn't look to promising today so think I will just be in all day .... unless I get a better offer, LOL !!!

Hope a productive healthy day my friends, TTYL.

good morning....

Debigene, Gold...oh my... definitely so sad about Ruby. I certainly will keep her in my thoughts and prayers. She was a big part of this team for quite some time!!

I could barely drag myself out of bed this morning! Yikes... I had to take a nap yesterday after work. 112 hours in 2 weeks is taking its toll on me for sure.

Have a great day!!
Carol

Hi all,

Carol - hearing about Travis makes me think about those special co-workers that have left over the years. It really leaves an empty space even if you do keep up with them outside work. Hope someone else comes along to fill that gap for you.

Our short trip was great. The fall colors coming back over Steven's Pass were amazing. We also took in some breathtaking views along the Columbia River Gorge. Didn't get in much fitness but made healthy meal choices. It was really sweet to catch up a bit with Taylre and the hair looks very stylish :-)

DG I heard about Ruby from Gail at Private Planet. She said she's still fighting it and that she stopped smoking over 18 years ago. I'm so sorry. She started PLOF didn't she?

Wishing you all a peaceful Sunday,
Cat

Good evening everyone.

I had a good day out and about with Linda. We went to Home Goods and the a Jewish deli for lunch. I had 1/2 a corn beef sandwich and a cup of Matza Ball soup. Delicious !!! Then we went to Trader Joes where they have most everything Pumpkin Spice I like pumpkin but not the spiced coffee or the chai tea but I did buy their pumpkin spice cream cheese, Pumpkin Spice granola cereal, some dried wild blueberries,some frozen carrot balls, and some yogurt. Then we came back to my house and spent time with Dusky and watched some TV. And now I am enjoying some peace and quiet. Tomorrow I will get my new tires and do laundry, no other plans.

Gold I am shocked to hear about Ruby, that is just terrible news. Stage 4 is pretty darn bad with not good possibilities but I will def keep her in prayer. Thank you for telling us. Enjoy the fun time with the birthday girls and I will keep my eyes open for a look at that cake !!! February is my month for 6 birthdays.

Have a peaceful pleasant evening friends.

Good morning friends, What a beautiful sunny morning it is here !!! Hope it lasts all day.

Carol, I wish I was there to give you a hug too. I do hope the 2 of you can/will keep in touch. It sounds like a very special friendship.

I'm still not exactly sure where this 1st day off is gonna take me but I know it will be somewhere with my friend Linda. I was up at 8 and have cleaned Dusky's cage, fed him, fed me, paid bills and now I'm doing my SPARKING before I start with a few chores. Then I will get in touch with Linda and see what she has on her mind. I have a few ideas but want to hear her's first.

So that's what's going on in my world today. I'll pop back in when I can. I hope everyone has the best day you can having some fun and enjoying what life brings your way today. Do make the healthiest choices you can and try to get some activity in that moves your body. I will be taking my own advice as well !!!

TTFN my lovelies.!!!

Good morning....

Omg....it was so tough saying good bye to Travis. I was the last one he said good bye to. Good thing...it took 20 minutes. We talked.... He was crying, I was crying....we hugged and hugged! Everybody else in my dept was gone ...we started before time to leave and went over 15 minutes!! I gave him my motherly encouragement...I finally told him "Travis....I just have to walk away" and I turned to leave. He told me he loved me and I said the same thing and walked out the door. Funny I wasn't home an hour and he texted me that the NY Jets had picked up Percy Garvin. Travis and I talked a lot if sports!! LOL. I know he did what was right for his family, I wish him the best but...I'm sad!

Well...I got up early to hold Lucky. He had surgery yesterday and is doing fine but he wanted his Mommy!! LOL. Gotta get ready for work....later!!

Hello my friends. So nice to see you.

I had another busy day at work and all I can say it I could not be happier that it is Friday and I have 4 days off !!! I started my evening off with a delicious Cosmo ... ok, I had my limit of 2 !!! I had a salad with some shredded chicken and a Lean Cuisine cheese pizza that I added 3 fresh sliced mushrooms to.
I had 2 phone conversations and dishes are soaking while I SPARK. Then it's TV time for me. I am spent and can't wait to relax. I will not think of tomorrow until I wake up then.

Cat and Jill enjoy and have a safe trip.
Cheryl I will dream of Kalinda. Keep up with your fitness you are doing great.
Carol do be sure to get your rest.

I'll see you all tomorrow. Night night emoticon

Hi team!

Running in to say hi before I run out the door to pick up Jill. Can't wait to get on the road and see Taylre in Yakima. We're staying over night at Howard Johnson's there and then taking a leisurely loop back through apple country and the northern pass. Back tomorrow night.

Have a great weekend - keepin it healthy!!

Lovin' happy healthy FIT Friday!

Got another good workout in last night, Did an hour on the elliptical watching t.v. and did a few strength training exercises and I couldn't resist getting on the bike for 20 mins.

Jill and I met up for lunch yesterday and we were actually able to sit outside. I kept my jacket on but it was very pleasant. She/you is/are very nice and I had a good time. I picked Starbucks because they have nutritional labeling on everything. Too bad I didn't read the label before I sat down to eat because the yogurt parfait I splurged on had something like 36 sugars!

Have a fun and safe trip to Yakima ladies.

Yeah, Debigene, TGW can be too intense for me. Sometimes I watch it, but Terri's glued to it. Just got Scandal-the second season from the library so we will be having a marathon weekend watching that. Hmmm, maybe I'll get out my Wii.

Oh, Carol, that is so sweet. Travis sounds like such a nice guy and it warms my heart to hear how you took him under your wing and helped him when he was starting out...you are AWESOME! hehehe

Happy to report I got my new (replacement) tracker. Yay to that I say!

Have a great day, everyone! And ditto on DG shoutout earlier!!

Good morning my dear friends and a Happy Healthy FIT Friday to all !!!

Carol enjoy this last work day with your "adopted son" perhaps it won't be the last time you see him at all. There's always ways to socialize these days. I'm sure you'll keep in touch.

It's a beautiful sunny day here in Charm City and I am happy it is Friday. I have 4 days off after today and have things in mind to get done. My friend Linda has off as well so we will be doing some fun things together. I'll keep you all posted.

Have a great day and keep smiling emoticon !!!!

So sad....today is my little buddy Travis' last day at work. I am so gonna miss him! He started hugging me on Tuesday knowing today would come and teared up every time we talked about it. He's a good guy. We have worked together 15 years and he tells people I practically raised him here...he was right outta high school when the started! I told him once " Travis...I don't have any children but if I had a son I would want him to be just like you...a loving father, a good husband and hard worker". Oh well...this is best for him...he told me yesterday" I wish I could take you with me!!

Have a good day

Hi friends, just got a chance to pop in and see how everyone's doing.

Sounds like we all have a lot in common with our friendships. It speaks well that people are being more accepting of just who people are not what they are. My guess is life is really better than it seems and will get better as the years go by and we are all gone. At least I am gonna think on the positive side for the future generations to come. Too mush negativity in our faces these days so I would like to think the future will be a better place once it get's through all this crap it's going through right now.

My friend Linda is getting into SCANDAL and tonight was just another nail biting episode. Love it !!!

Sounds like an enjoyable trip Jill and Cat, stay safe and have fun. Hope you get lots of produce.

Cheryl I just don't know what to expect from TGW now with this news you have given me about my girl Kalinda !!!! I just hope they don't kill her off. That's just another fav show that keeps me on the edge of my seat, always something exciting happening each episode.

Gold how is everything going ??? How are you feeling??

Jay if you are popping in I hope you know we miss you.

Cynthia would love to hear an update from you as well. How is Hope doing?

Meri, what's cooking ???

Guess that's all for tonight ladies, sleep well. I know I will.

Thankful for PLOF!!

Well put Carol re your friends. I’m in about the same boat as most of you. You’d think with so many family here in Seattle I would have more gay friends. Most of my closest friends came along way before I came out and are straight. I think some are still wondering when this phase will pass for me lol!!! I’m not a terribly social person – more like an awkward turtle and it’s really a stretch socializing with strangers. I’d like to have more community – one of the reasons finding this group has been such a blessing.

Turned into a beautiful day – got out for two long walks so far in my brand new shoes and now the bunion is barking. This too shall pass. Had a fun lunch with Joe – we sat outside in the sunshine. He calls October the month of all seasons! Glad to see he’s doing so well – although very tired from full time school and part time job. I’m slated to talk to Sam after work tonight so feels good to talk to both my boys in the same day!

Tomorrow Jill and I are heading to Yakima (in Eastern WA over the mountains) so I can see Taylre and get my hair cut. We’re planning on staying over and having a nice drive back on Saturday. Hoping to get some fresh from the farm produce to bring home for ye olde nutribullet.

Ciao for now,

Thankful for my excellent workout last night. Did lots of cardio. Will go again tonight and change it up.

Terri and I have her friends here that I met 16 years ago and found (some of) them to be a bit clickish and critical. After all these years, I'm trying to be more myself and not fight fire with fire. I feel close to a few of them, but mostly not. It's weird. I left my friends and family to make this move to Seattle and I'm not sorry I did and realize it will only be different if I make it different and SP has been a huge step for me stepping outside Terri's world and creating one that I can own. Having said that, we do stay home alot (which is fine for me), but on Saturday we're going to a party and it will be a mix of our lesbian friends and their circle (straight & gay). I go more as an exercise in being social and to see our friend that is hosting the party.

What I really like to do and I don't do as much since my move from SF, is go to events like the one Cat enjoyed. It sounds like transgender people are getting a bigger voice and hopefully with our younger generation we will become a less judgment society.

Weather here is gray and a bit wet. Weekend weather looks like less rain and more sun with Sunday being a really nice day. Hope to get a walk in on Sunday a.m. before football.

Yay for Thursday!

Good morning my lovely lady friends !!!!

No rain this morning and looks like it might clear up. It's Thankful Thursday so I am just grateful that we don't have "S" ... you know what I mean .... ssshhh don't even say it !!! LOL !!!
Yeah I know what you mean Carol. The only lesbians in my life are Donna and Carol and I love them dearly. They are a beautiful couple and they treat me like family. All of their families are close and they always include me as well. Sounds like we are both truly blessed with beautiful people in our lives. Life is good.
My brother gave me some good tips about buying tires last night so I have a little more research to do before I take the plunge.
My friend Linda is coming over tonight to watch SCANDAL so not sure I will get back in here.

Ok friends, let's do what we do best today, whether it is making good healthy food choices, getting in great fitness, making others smile and laugh, sharing some good times with friends and/or family or just enjoying your solitude ...... JUST DO IT !!!!

Good morning ladies.....

Debigene....we are in the same situation. Most all of my good friends are str8 ...which is fine! We have one very good gay friend who is a widower and a total closet case. He is wonderful and we value his friendship. Most of our friends are AA, non drinking and very open minded! Linda and I aren't active in the "community" and prefer the company of our close friends, family and each other.

That's all I'm saying about the baseball game!! LOL!

Have a great day!!

Here I am ladies just got back from an excellent cleaning and reoprt from the awesome dentist. he said I was perfect !!! and the hygienist says she wished all her clients did such good home care on their mouth I do ... hehehe !!! I do take good care of my teeth. Way back when I had gum disease and had to go through that awful painful scraping and I swore I'd never get to that point again ever !!! It took a good 2 years to get to a point that I was not in pain anymore and followed up every 3 months for about 2 years. But I have been a faithful 6 monther for many years now So needless to say I never really mind going to the dentist.

Cat I must say that your evening out sounds like it was quite an eye opener !!! Not to mention being in good company. I haven't been in, around or active in "the community" in many years now but am still an open and out lesbian. When my gay male friends moved to Belize I sorta lost interest in hanging out. I was active in some lesbian groups for a while but never really felt like I fit in, they all just seem so clicky. So I just gave up and just fit my gayself in with my str8 friends. It's all good !!!

I talked to Dad before I left for the dentist and he was doing well after the surgery. He said he wasn't in any pain as of yet but completely expects to have a good shiner when the healing begins. The dr felt good that he got the all the cancer but of course the results won't be in for a few days and that will tell all. We are hopeful and then the plastic surgery takes place. He's sounds very positive at this point. Please keep him in prayer. Thanks

Well work was busy, busy and now it's time for me to get settled in and relax for the night. Seems like the rain has slowed down a good bit maybe it's over now ??? The morning will tell.

Carol last I heard it didn't look good for dem O's but as I say, may the best team win !!!

I do hope you each enjoy the evening and get a good night's rest.

Hi all,

Hope the dentist went OK DG and that you aren't getting too much rain. I'm truly wishing that everyone's winter weather isn't as crazy as it was last year. One can hope, right?

Last night I went to a talk by Janet Mock - has anyone heard of her? She has a new book out called "Redefining Realness." She's very controversial - aside from the fact that she's transsexual - in that she uncovers the world of young men who are transitioning and their need to be sex workers to afford their surgeries. She was interviewed by the head of the UW's Queer Center in front of a crowd of hundreds. Mostly UW students, mostly young lesbians and some trans people. It was very enlightening.

Let's keep our eye on the prize ladies! Good health and happiness for everyone!!
Cat

Good day, all - happy hump day.

I feel back on track. Went to the gym last night and got 40 mins on the elliptical. Taco salad at home for dinner and did not load it up, but used portion control. Although I did wolf it down like I hadn't eaten in days. I gotta really work on that.

I am ready for the gym tonight and looking forward to getting on the stationary bike.

Carol, I hope Uncle Sam leaves you some of that OT $$$. You certainly deserve it.

Hope you got some rest last night, DG, you are on the go a lot.

Hello to Cat, Jill, Gold, Jay (where are you? are you home yet?), Cynthia and all of PLOF. Hope everyone's well and happy.

Good morning friends,

The heavy rains are bearing down on us and should be here before noon. Expected to last through out the day and into the morning. Looks like a soggy day for sure. Sorry I didn't make it in here last night my brain was drained.

Carol enjoy that big paycheck you def earned it !!! Treat yourself and Linda to a cruise or vacation somewhere exotic soon. Plan it and do it !!!

Ladies I hope your day is full of all healthy things and opportunities to make a difference in your living healthy journey. Remember to smile and be grateful for all the goodness in your life.

Stay focused on God and His presences within you will be your best protection as you go about each day.

Good morning....

I had good day but was very busy. Made it to the gym....had a good meal and the Royals won. It was a pretty decent day but one day wore me out. This is payday week...it'll be interesting to see how big my check is with all if these hours. I would gladly trade the money for a reduction in hours!!

Have a good one!!

Terrific Tuesday everyone!

I haven't celebrated Halloween in years except for welcoming trick or treaters whose numbers have greatly declined over the years. Any ideas for healthy treats?

Joe is coming to join me for lunch at work today - we'll go down to the hospital cafeteria. We have to finish his financial aid package for winter quarter. Hopefully he will be able to get a grant.

Ciao for now - have a great rest of your day!

Happy Healthy Tuesday, indeed!

Passing on donuts today. It's our United Way fundraising kickoff. I figure if I want a donut, I can buy it - which I don't do when I'm trying to improve my healthy living lifestyle.

Had a good workout at the gym last night. Once I get there I find lots to do and am motivated. I think this is going to be a good way to spend an hour or two after work when the days are so short.

WTG on a 2 lb weight loss, Cat! I have to really up my game if I'm going to catch up. hehehe

Enjoy your day!

Good morning friends, and a Happy Healthy Tuesday to all.

Very gray and foggy here this morning, doubt I'll see the sun at all today. Looks like those storms that passed you Carol are heading our way.

Let's make good choices today ladies, let's move our bodies as much as possible, let's share a smile with everyone we pass, let's make someone else's day today.

Let's make it happen !!!

Good morning....


Back to work...at least I got rested. Wow....the weather! It is passed us and we didn't get the severe stuff. Looks to be a great week....70s.

Have a great day! I'm going to the gym after my 10 hour workday :(

Hello ladies,

It was a decent day at work for me, course there is always at least one craziness that just makes my head spin, just glad it was at the end of the day this time. The best part of the day is that the banks were open so I was able to get the check cashed. Now I can get 2 new tires and 2 new bras and groceries !!! I called around today to get pricing on the tires and think i have found a good price and can get them done as soon as I have time. Probably Mon or Tue next week since I took those 2 days off anyway.

I wanted to tell you all that I have been using the sulfate free shampoo and I have to be honest I really don't see as much of a difference as I had hoped too but I do see some. My gray hair is not as dry and wirery but it still is. I just wish my gray was white not salt and peppery.

Gold there used to be a Zombie Crawl in Baltimore too for many years but last year someone ruined it for all by being destructive in one of the neighborhoods. So there isn't going to be one this year. I was never into zombies so it was n't of interest to me, but the way you described it sounds like fun. Glad you got to enjoy it and get the boys home safely, LOL !!! You are a Rockin' GM !!!

Cheryl; I say DAMN the scale !!! LOL !!! Mine is going in the wrong direction too and we need to put a stop to it for sure !!! Keep working on your water intake it helps to keep you full. You don't seem to have a problem like I do with the exercise so keep up with what you're doing there. BTW, great idea about the chalkboard !!! I still need to eat less !!!

I want to announce Cat as our BIGGEST LOSER this week. She lost 2 pounds !!! Woo Hoo !!! WTG Cat, Congrats to you !!!
Don't forget to give her a hard earned Goodie !!!

Anyone thought about Halloween costumes yet ???

Ok eyes are going cross must retire now. Night night zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Gold - I sure got a big kick our of your zombie night experience!! You are the coolest grandma ever!!! Wonder if we had one of those here. Someone I know had a zombie wedding - just couldn't wrap my head around it!

Glad you are having some good R&R Carol - you sure earned it.

Happy with weigh in this week although I have to say I used Jill's scale instead of mine. Hope it's consistent. Going to really push this week - Costco has a big bag of organic Power Greens which I have in the fridge waiting for the nutribullet tonight. I'm missing the bounty of summer fruits, it's so expensive now that it's out of season. Found some McIntosh apples though - my all time favorite and available for such a short time. Cheryl, thanks for all the water reminders, that's something I always fall short on.

Our city's city council renamed Columbus Day "Indigenous People's Day". Turns out Columbus was not the hero he was made out to be and never landed in the U.S. Native Americans should have their own day.

Hello to everyone else out there - have a great week,

Okay, I will post my weight this morning. I'm up a bit more again today as well. The darn scale is inching up in the wrong direction. I've been pretty good about fitness and nutrition, but just need to step it up a bit - more activity and more water. I went groc. shopping yesterday and got food for a week or more. I finally got a little chalkboard in the kitchen and so I wrote what we're having for dinner in case Terri wants to get it together while I'm at the gym. She gets home hours before I do when I stay to work out. My plan is to eat something light for dinner and then take dinner for lunch the next day. Watch out, Cat, I'm hot on your heals for 180.

Carol, nice to hear you had a relaxing weekend and got your yard winterized. We are watching our grass seed waiting patiently for the first sign of our slow-growing, no mow lawn to sprout.

That was sure nice of you, Gold, getting out of the house at 2:00a.m. It sounds like the guys had fun and great that they had you for their DD.

Debigene, glad you had such a wonderful visit with your Dad. Sounds like it worked out well for him to have visitors two days in a row instead of you both on one day.

Yep, it was really nice meeting a friendly sparker. And, Jill and I are having lunch this Friday and then hopefully miniature golf with her and Cat.

Take care, all - BBFN

P.S. - Thanks for inspiring me to change my profile pic, Carol.

Good morning friends,

I just realized it is Columbus Day and it makes me think banks are closed and I so need to cash that check. Maybe somewhere along the way they realized Columbus did not discover American and they are open, lol !!! I doubt that !!! Oh well I will just have to find the resources to make do one more day. I know I can.

Carol enjoy another day of rest and relaxation well maybe a bit of fun too. Sorry about those hours increasing, that's criminal !!!!

Have a MINDFUL Monday ladies, make good healthy choices and I'll catch up with you tonight.

Good Monday morning....

I am feeling very rested this morning. I'm glad I still had today off...its rainy, cold, and dreary! I have really enjoyed the weekend! I'm drinking some pumpkin spice coffee and Murphy Brown is snuggled up with me on the recliner. Linda.... She is still sleeping! We are watching a show on Freddie Mercury...interesting.

I got some pre-winter yard work done yesterday....mowed some of the green spots for the last time, raked leaves, drained the garden hoses and put them away. Just got the yard spruced up and ready to go for winter. I also made it to the gym for a workout. Today I'll get on the treadmill later for fitness.

Hope you have a marvelous Monday....tomorrow I start 10 hour days!! :(

Well hello to a bunch of cheery women. I am having a relaxing day as yesterday was just to loaded with activities. It started out with me going to my great granddaughter, Chloe's last soccer game of the season at 10:00 am, then her sister Simone's soccer game at 12:30, then off to take my ward Michelle to Michael's shopping for craft material, Then chipotles and taking that to the group home to eat dinner with my daughter.

Then the high point of my day was picking the boys up at the lite rail in the Mall of America at 2:00 am after they got back from the Zombie Pub Crawl. It is said that Minneapolis broke the world's record for the number of people attending the Zombie crawl. 25,000 people dressed up as zombies and went drinking. They close off several downtown MPLS streets, have bands and booze. I sit at the Mall and watch many of them get off the lite rail feeling no pain at 2 am. This year wasn't quite as interesting as last year. No security was called. But they still looked pretty awesome. One of my boys had thrown up on the lite rail, so we made him take off all his clothes before he got in my van. He apologized all the way home, but did not hurl in my van. They laughed and joked about it all the way home.

I saw zombie solders, zombie hot dogs. many zombie brides and one of my boys went as a gay zombie cowboy. They pour fake blood all over themselves, paint nasty wounds and maybe have a fake eye ball hanging or stuck on their cheek. I like creative young people.

While I was waiting for the boys I started to read my retirement book. It's a mystery. While I will still have to do the trial in March, the rest of my business has been cut way back. Now I will start moving things like files out.

I hope you all have a great week ahead of you. Keep me informed about your lives.

Hi friends, just me again !!!

I had such a great time with Dad today. We had a really yummy brunch ... yes I ate things I normally don't and I enjoy every bite because i was enjoying my time with my Dad. Just him and I - my bro decided not to go as he spent the day with him yesterday and they went out to breakfast and then to the new casino here in town. Dad likes that a lot and so does Brian. I am not a gambler so I am glad the 2 of them enjoyed their time together too. Now I am home and will relax the rest of the day giving Dusky his attention. He is very content just sitting on my shoulder and preening.

Cheryl is this friend Amanda the new SP member you told us about? LAKEAM, I think was her name? Haven't seen her post at all yet on her page. Either way I'm glad to hear you both got such a nice long walk in. Relax and enjoy the rest of the day with Terri.

I'm gearing up for a strong week ahead as will and didn't have time to weigh in either. I will start the chart and post my results in the morning as well.

Hola chicas! Happy everyone seems to be enjoying their time with family and friends.

Hey, Carol, I got a nap in yesterday too. It was so nice. I slept well on Friday night so it kind of caught me off guard but I didn't fight it.

My walk with Amanda was really nice, but not too strenuous. We think we did about 5-6 mile round trip. Then I came home and cleaned some house. Terri and I ended up staying in after throwing out ideas to go to the movies, etc.

Today will be another relaxing day at home. I'll bring out the Wii for some stepping.

Cat, I'm excited too for my tracker to arrive. It will be here later next week. Dinner sounds yummy. I'm off to the store for week's supply of groceries.

Wow DG-wtg on getting some extra cash.

I'm dreading weigh-in. Scall is all over the place this morning. I'm going to grab weight first thing in the morning and post then.

Going to enjoy my day and get ready for a strong week ahead.

Good Sunday morning friends,

I don't see any sun out there yet but maybe it's to come ?? I enjoyed my visit with Leann last night; all we did was chat. It was so nice and she looks great. Sadly her job is coming to an end but she has some coals in the fire. I'm sure things will work out for her, they usually do !!! She is so psyched up on Halloween most of the inside of her house is decorated and now the outside begins !!! It's a big ta-do !!! She's having a party on the !st, not sure what my costume will be yet, but I'm starting out with a lab coat. Don't be afraid to send any ideas my way ladies, I could use some.

Cat you really had quite the productive day yesterday didn't you. How was the stew ???

Carol sounds like you also had a full day but not an exhausting one. So glad you got a nap in. BTW, when I was at Leann's last night since they are BIG sport fans I heard the sad news, wonder what's wrong with dem O's ???? Good for the Royals taking another tho' !!!

Ok friends I need to go get Dusky up and get myself together to leave to take Dad out to brunch with bro Brian. Don't expect it to ba an all day affair as I want to get home to give Dusky his due attention. So I'll check back in later.

Have a beautiful healthy day !!!

Good morning Ladies....

I'm headed to the gym. I've loved sports my whole life...not just as a spectator but as a participant. I guess that's why I enjoy fitness so much. And the Royals won...I walked the treadmill and watched the game! It was a great afternoon. I cleaned the house early, got the laundry done, watched a couple shows I had DVRd and even snuck a nap in! I really enjoyed being home.

I'll be back later...have a great day!!

Carol

Hi friends. Hope you all are enjoying your day.

Cat the game was baseball this time not football which really doesn't matter to me anyway .... it's still just a sport to me, LOL ....... boring !!!!!

I went to the Cash for Gold place and had a little bag of junk/broken, twisted gold pieces and an awesome heavy solid (not hollow) gold band with a gold nugget on top. I got $374 for the junk !!! I was quite pleased with that but they only wanted to give me $175 for the ring. Heck that ring cost almost $800 so I said that's ok I'd hold onto that piece. I may check it out some other place sometime. She said they only pay for the weight and % of gold not the design. I felt sure the ring weight more than the junk gold but what the heck do I know. I'll hold on to it a while longer. The $374 will come in quite handy right now. Will take the check to the bank Monday !!!

I'm heading to Leann's for a visit tonight so hope everyone has a pleasant evening.

Happy Saturday everyone! Love to hear about everyone's busy lives. emoticon

I think I must finally be adjusting to the change in light - or should I say lack thereof. It's dark now by the time I get off work. Must have a bit of that SAD (seasonal affectiveness. disorder). I'm feeling much more energy this weekend. When Seiko dropped me off yesterday after the museum she taught me some stretches for my hip. She's over 70 and still takes strength conditioning and dance classes. She had me wrapped up like a pretzel, I was afraid I'd hurt today but feeling great. Now if I could only remember the sequence. She suggested we do it via Skype. I'll have to see if I can figure out how to do that.

So far I've gotten laundry, vacuuming, dusting done. Cleaned out the mess of a linen closet, my part of the fridge. Last weekend sorted through all winter clothes and summer too for things that don't fit. Housemates have sorted out alot of stuff for the Org for the Blind to pick up this week so I'll add mine. Feels good.

Jill's cooking again tonight - 4 hour beef stew. Yum! Tomorrow we'll go to the monastery and then Costco. I'm wondering about weigh in tomorrow - I was down a pound yesterday and got in alot of steps. We'll see. New tracker will arrive soon - hooray!!

DG I agree - I don't get the football mania but it's nice that people come together to enjoy it. After the Seahawks win last year 12th man gear is everywhere. People get so psyched about it.

Way to go team! emoticon

Good afternoon my friends.

Carol I didn't even know the O's lost last night. So congrats to your Royals !!! Maybe dem O's will win today. You're wedding plans sound great so far. I'm sure it will be lovely. Enjoy your day off today hon.

I was upstairs for my nephew's BD gathering and as soon as the game came on there was no more normal conversation, it was all geared to the game. I certainly understand that as they all enjoy it immensely. I on the other hand ... not at all. So I politely waited until they were ready to sing and cut the cake and then I took my cup cake and came back downstairs to enjoy Shark Tank !!! I only managed to get 5 minutes of commercial exercises in, but it's better than none.

Cheryl how nice that you are meeting a SP member today for a walk. I hope you have a great time. OMG that Day of the Dead wedding sounds like a blast !!! I was in Belize one year during that time ... so much fun !!! My friend that lives there is born on Halloween..... he's a gay mess !!!!

Cat I did not remember to look for the oats at Tar-jay last night. I was in an out in a flash. Next time for sure.

Gold such a bummer about the trial. Will you have to wait till that is over in order to close up shop ??? Oh gosh I hope not !!!

Ok ladies I'm getting together some old broken gold jewelry worthy of cash for gold and heading out for just a bit to see what I can get for it. Wish me luck.

Happy Saturday, Gang-

I'm meeting up with another sparker this morning for a nice walk. Looking forward to meeting a neighboring sparkfriend.

Love the pics of Lucky...such a cute fella.

We are going to a wedding on Nov 1 for our friends and last I heard they still have not picked out their outfits. Their theme is Dia de las Muertas (Day of the Dead) and the two brides on the card are skeletons in dresses...I love it. I'll try to get a pic and post later today.

Terri wants to wipe down our kitchen cabinets (inside) and they really need it to. So after my walk it'll be more cleaning...when does it end I ask?!

Good morning ladies....

Cat no powder blue tuxes in my future. LOL!! I'm not a tux kinda gal neither is Linda. We have decided we will dress as we normally do when we dress up. So no dresses no tuxes. A friend of ours will perform the ceremony and I believe we will rent a building on a nearby lake for the ceremony. This all will probably not take place till spring. Hey...no rush we've been engaged for 29 years!

HOW ABOUT THOISE ROYALS! Sorry Debigene!!

I'm up pretty early..drinking coffee and watching HTGAWM..what a show!! Its got me hooked. I'm gonna chill and watch football today....clean the house..rest!

What do you all have planned for the weekend!!

Carol

Greetings all,

Gold, so sorry the trial may get postponed for so long but you have a great attitude.

I was all psyched to sleep in this morning until the neighbors decided it was a good time to cut down a tree. It's been going on for hours, what the heck!? Was a good thing though as I've already vacuumed, done 2 loads of laundry and am getting ready to catch the bus downtown with friend Seiko to visit the Frye art museum. Should get in some good walking today. Scale down 1 lb this morning - yay!! Even with the delicious roast pork dinner Jill made last night.

Cheryl, you are so motivated! Go girl!!! Carol, happy you are finally getting some time away from work, hope you get in some good fun between workouts and home chores. Like shopping for that powder blue tuxedo??!!!

Debigene - hope you find the Better Oats at Tar-jay.

TGIF special going out to Carol.

My trial for Monday got cancelled, my client's mother was dying and he got called home to the east. I don't know how I feel about this as it is possible that the next available trial date will be in March. Well, at least I should be ready.

We are having a wonderful fall weekend here. The colors are all changing and the weather is nice. It will be in the 60's. My daughter went on a 4 days horse ride. That should be fun and beautiful.

I myself, might just read a book. I hope you all have a great fun filled weekend.

TGIF PLOF ( ditto - espec. Carol!)

Happy to report I got on the stationary bike and did 45 mins for 300 calories. I was so excited to see an upgrade to the bike. There are now three games on the bike and three levels to each game. Plus, you have to work hard to unlock the next level. It's so motivating. Then I walked for 15 mins on the treadmill. Bowl of cereal for dinner.

I'm already for the gym tonight.

Have a great day, all.

Good morning and a special TGIF to Carol !!!

It was so late last night after Linda left and I was really tired so I only got 5 minutes of commercial exercises in but I worked it hard. I got my flu shot yesterday at work not sure if that contributed to my extra tiredness ??? Oh well today is a new day and it's Friday. Tonight I have to go to Tar-jay after work to pay my bill (it's due today) and then come home fix dinner for me and Dusky and then go upstairs for an appearance as they are having family and friends over to celebrate Cody's 21st birthday. It's actually tomorrow but of course he will be out celebrating !!! Not sure what Saturday has in store for me yet but Sunday is brunch with Dad for his birthday.

That's all for now friends, I hope your day is full of good healthy choices and decisions in all you do. Be kind to others and keep a smile on your face.

Good morning ladies...


Well I made it to day 12. Yesterday We were told on Monday we start 10 hours instead of 9 and still have to do the 12 days in a row. I don't know how I'm going to do it I'm exhausted today! Thank goodness I took Monday off so I can recuperate!

Lucky is a big boy....he is beautiful! I will post a picture later. In a couple of weeks he has a vet appointment to assure he doesn't become a Lucky Daddy!

Have a great day!
Carol

Lol Cheryl - I was just thinking about Mr. Lucky last night and wonder how he's doing. Carol - maybe you can post a new picture! I'm sure he's settled in with the other fur people and they are great friends???

My weight is holding steady - not going up, but not going down either. Stuck on one of those plateaus again. Heading to the hospital cafeteria for lunch, they do have lots of good meal choices - and of course lots of sweets as well which I avoid by not looking at them. I usually bring a healthy lunch but it's my treat as tomorrow is payday.

Keep up the good work everyone! Hope your PT went OK Gold.

I agree with you, DG - Carol, we're just glad for your company when you can be here and you always make such an effort for daily support. You're awesome and we appreciate all you do and we love your updates. I think of Lucky from time to time and know he is probably a big boy now.

Jill and I found out that we're work neighbors - just blocks from each other downtown. Pretty exciting! emoticon

Well, gals, I'm thankful that each day signals a fresh start. I need to get my nutrition and fitness schedule on track. Although I make more good choices over poor choices, it feels like a constant battle. I feel like I'm making great strides in tweaking my life style in healthier, more physical choices but, again, it just takes a few missteps to gain those unwanted few pounds back. I will persevere!

Cat, Gold, Cynthia and all PLOF - have a great day.

Good morning friends,

Oh Carol we completely understand, it is a blessing that you even have the time to stop in once a day with the hectic schedule you are living these days. Just take care of you and Linda. You know we will be here cheering you on.

Today is THANKFUL Thursday ladies, stop and take a moment just to reflect on all the goodness in your life and be grateful for it. Say it out loud !!! It is a pleasure to know you ladies and it is obvious to me that you all know and appreciate your lives. Share your gratefulness with others today and surprise a stranger with a random act of kindness. Pay it forward at the cafe line, the bus stop, the toll booth, the drive thru, the coffee shop, etc !!! You can make a difference in someone's life and not even know it. Walk with your head held high and a smile on your face.

Have a healthy happy day my friends.

Wow....I could barely get out of bed today. I am so darn tired but I've got a 3 day weekend thank goodness. I didn't make the gym last night but am going too try tonight. Linda and I looked at rings. We have some but our real official wedding calls for new ones!! ;)

Have a great day!!

Hello EVERYONE !!! I see Carol is on line too maybe she will post while I am !!! i have to open another window just to go back and forth to remember what everyone was talking about. I love this team and knowing you all !!!

Gold, I hope your PT went well today and that it will bring you relief soon. PT usually works if you do your part at home. I want you to know that I am anxiously and patiently (can that be???) waiting word from you. I hope the last trial ends soon so that you can get to getting done !!! My life is not really all that active except on the weekends. I don't often do much during the week except watch TV. So I try to cram all the good stuff in on the weekends, LOL !!!

Jill so glad you procedure is finished with and you are now on the mend.

Cat I live pretty simply also in lots of other ways. I must have TV as it is my form of entertainment at home, no dishwasher or disposal for me either and I still dump my ice cube trays in a bin, no ice maker. I do have a car but wish I was in better shape that I could ride SPARKLES to work since it is only 3.5 miles. Public trans is not convenient for that short trip. I live just over the city line and the bus would go around Robin Hood's barn to get there !!! I'm glad you saw that tracker notice too.

Jill you meal sounded quite yummy, all that delicious seafood, YUM !!! but the surrounding patrons not so much. They would have gotten on my last gay nerve too !!! It's just inconsiderate to act like that in public in my opinion. I hope the news of the reduced price on the tracker is good for you as well.

Now about that Putt Putt !!! I want to play too but the walk to meet you would be too much for me, LOL !!! Maybe after I get fit I will join you all too, LOL !!! I wish !!!

My day at work was a fairly quiet one, very unusual !!! Therefore the day was a little slow. So not much to share.otherwise. Will finish up SPARKING and then dishes and then it's comedey night on ABC !!!

Enjoy the evening friends.

emoticon emoticon on your engagement Carol and Linda!!

And thanks for the info on the tracker, ladies, I hadn't heard about the sale and that's good news.

Jill and Cat - is it the last weekend of the month you're available? Not sure from Jill's post. We could go the weekend of the 25 & 26 - do either of those days work? I'll send you a sparkmail so we can coordinate.

Dinner last night was good - lots of crab! It was a lot of food (chowder, clams, salad & crab + some bread) and I stopped at full. Terri seemed to enjoy it. BUT, a table of six sat down right behind me when we were 2/3 done with our dinner and they were super loud - two of them were super loud - "momma" and "tomas." A little hard of the nerves, but I persevered with a smile.

Gold, I hope your travel plans come to fruition.

Hi DG and all PLOF!

Have a great day, everyone.

Good to see so many here this morning! Wishing you all a groovy day.

Carol – that is awesome news!! Congratulations to you both, and very romantic! I think about 50% of states have legalized ss marriage and an additional nine are on the brink. Who would have thought?

I saw that notice about the reduced price tracker. One of those has my name on it! It says there is a new generation one coming out for i-phones which I don’t have. I’m tempted to get 2 at that price since I’ll probably misplace my new one if the future ;-)

Putt putt sounds like fun! It’s been decades since I’ve been anywhere near a golf club of any type. Interbay?

Hope that visit happens for you Gold and Debigene and that your PT goes well today Gold.

Nothing much going on today. A few meetings and then our monthly “tea and talk” tonight with the housemates.

And whoo hoo, we’re getting a dishwasher! Only uses 2.9 gallons per load. Very exciting. Right now we’re pretty basic – no dishwasher, disposal, or TV, and me no car. I’ve lived this way on and off for a long time and I have to say for me simple is good.

Good morning. Today I start PT to strengthen my back and neck. I hope this works.

Carol and Linda congratz on your engagement? I hope your day comes soon. We have had that freedom for a year or so now,

Cheryl and Terri, I need to put these names together to build the connection So Hi..

I love my tracker. It has not been off me for months. I hate it when I have to go to court as then I have to transfer it around and I lose steps. I do not shoot for 10,000 steps, but I was up to 4000 before the back issue.

I have one trial left and then I can concentrate more on shutting the office physically down after that.

Debigene your life always seems so fully of activities and people. You must be a great friend. By the way, It looks like my daughter will be there in February, so I might get a trip there too. I am sitting back and quietly waiting, I don't want to get too excited just yet.

Have a great day.

Good morning Ladies,

Way to go Carol and Linda!! CONGRATS!!!!! How exciting! We are all so very happy for you both!! Much happiness to you both!

Thanks Debigene for your kind words of encouragement and prayers. I made it home on the bus and went to bed early! All is good.

Thanks also for the heads up on the tracker. I will probably get one myself!.

Cheryl, I would love to do Putt- putt golf with you. How does the weekend of the month sound? Will have to check Cat schedule.

Hope you all have a great healthy day! Here is to the Best Team on Spark People! Hugs!!!

Let's do it,

Good morning friends and indeed it is a Wonderful Wednesday ...... CONGRATS to you and Linda Carol !!! Def a long time coming and yes it is inevitable !!!

Cat and Cheryl, just read (if you haven't yet) SP is offering their Tracker on sale $30 off. That might encourage you to get a new one. Wish I could afford to spend $30 on something so worthwhile but it is just not in my budget. It seems from what all of you have posted about the tracker that it really is a big motivator. I will just have to continue counting on you wonderful ladies to push my along, you are all much more friendly and personal anyway, LOL !!! Love ya !!!

Have a Wonderful day ladies and please make wonderful healthy choices in all you do.

Good morning ladies...


I am so excited! We are very close here in Kansas to legalizing same sex marriage. I never thought I'd see the day!! After almost 29 years together it looks like we will be able to make it official. I proposed to Linda and she accepted...good thing huh! I'm not sure when it will be legalized....we still have some groups fighting it but it's inevitable!! :).

Have a good day!
Carol
