Evening ladies, wow where did the day go ???

I enjoyed it very much all to myself, well with Dusky too. I went to the $ store to get a light bulb and a mouse trap, and darn if I didn't forget the trap !!! DUH !!! The went to get my produce and decided to buy a bag of collard greens to cook tomorrow. I've never made them before so I also bought a seasoning pack. When I got home I read the pack and see that I also need a ham hock or smoked turkey wing, so back to the store I went and got the turkey wings (2 in a pack). So I will be cooking them tomorrow and really hope they turn out so I can have them with the rest of the left over meatloaf. So I got a little walking in today. I've also been motivated to move more around the house for some extra steps. It all adds up !!!! I won't be going out tonight and that's just fine with me as I've really enjoyed this "me" day. Dusky liked it too since he spent a lot of time out and about the cage and on my shoulder.

Oh my Cheryl, what a terrible loss here on earth. Your friend was a true gift from God to this universe and will surely be missed. Find peace in knowing that she has accomplished what God had planned for her and that you were one of the blessed to have known her. I know it's hard.

Cat, I do hope the PT and Aleve is just the ticket your arm/shoulder needs for healing. TJMaxx , Marshall's and of course Home Goods are my fav places for so many things. Have fun and find those bargains !! I envy you coloring your gray - I used to until I developed an allergic reaction to the developer and had to stop years ago. My go to color was always on the Magenta side !!! I just wish it would all turn white instead of this salt and pepper gray, yuck !!! I say step out on a limb and go for a little change in the color, doesn't have to be drastic. I'll wait to see the new do when you are done with the coloring.

Carol I hope you have enjoyed your day off hon, let us know.

Well guess that's all for me right now, I'll probably stop back one more time before calling it a day.
Have a good one girls.

Had to add that yesterday I was in a public restroom and a young mom struggling with 2 small children asked me if I would hold her son while she helped her daughter. It had been so long since I'd held a baby - he was maybe a bit under a year and looked so much like Joe at that moment. What a feeling. I think I'm almost ready for grandkids!!!

Cheryl, I am glad to have read of her. What a huge loss for everyone, those kinds of deaths are just unfathomable. So young, small child, fiancee, shining star in her actions to use her legal skills to make a positive impact on the world. Why I wonder???

Sadly one of the articles I read said the city is 1 week away from the scheduled reconfiguration of that dangerous stretch of bike lanes. Not that that helps.

Well, for the rest of us life goes on. Let's make the most of all the todays we have left - being present to the choices we make for our health and happiness and that of those around us.

Decided the gray had to go. Turns out I have WAY more than I thought. This last haircut which is quite short in the back revealed that. I wish I had the cajones to do something really fun like auburn but if I do I want a professional, not a box. So for today it will be the same old brownish color sans the grey.

Dr. prescribed PT and double Aleve for the arm/shoulder. Hopefully the PT will help me figure out what I'm doing to hurt it. And the old injury I was sure I had re-injured - that was OTHER arm!

Waiting to have lunch with friend Victoria, then we are hitting up TJ Maxx and maybe Ross. Need a few things and we've always been a great shopping team. Sam is supposed to come over later this afternoon and give me another payment toward the car I bought him.

That's all from here - Carol, enjoy your leisure time, congrats on the rings! Glad Lucky is well on the mend, little cats are rubbery and bounce back quickly!

Cheryl, how tragic for the loss of someone so positive, so giving, so loved. My heart goes out to her family. She was a remarkable woman. I'll put her family in my prayers!

Sher Kung Sher Kung Sher Kung Sher Kung

Today is the celebration of a life of a young woman I never formally met but we worked at the same firm. When I saw Sher in our café or the elevator or when she stopped by an office by my desk, I would think to myself, there's a go-getter with the brightest spirit.

Unfortunately, Sher died unexpectedly several weeks ago, and now as we celebrate her life, I truly get what a go-getter and bright spirit this young woman was. She was phenomenal in every aspect of her life: partner, mom, daughter, friend, advocate for her clients, team player for the firm, and my heart breaks for the loss her partner, young infant daughter, family and friends are enduring.

The thing I'm learning about Sher as we celebrate is that she was big on community and bringing it together. I'm not surprised - this young woman got things done.

Google Sher Kung, you'll be glad you did.

Oh dear sweet friend, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your best friend. How sad you must be and the emptiness you must be feeling now. Know that she has done what God has intended her to do and it was time to bring her home. I will ask my Mom to meet her at the gates. Remember her fondly and find comfort in her memories. Know that we are here for you when you need to talk.

Peace be with you my friend. emoticon emoticon

Gold, so sorry about your best friend passing! You are in my thoughts and prayers. She will always be in your heart and mind. Know that when you think of her or a situation happens that reminds you of her, she is smiling down upon you and sending you a hug! When you are missing her think of a fun time spent together or a time you laughed together. We are all her to help you through this... Okay

Many hugs ...

Jill

Good morning friends.

I mean it with all my heart, this is the best group of women I have never met !!!! But honestly feel like we have !!! Spending time with you each everyday or at least every week is like one of God's gifts to me. I just wanted you to know how much you all mean to me.

Thank you Jill and Carol for the ideas on how to send Ben packing. Wish I could do it in a "living" way tho' but don't know how that can be. I know he's just here to keep warm but I just can't have him running around. He gets plenty of food here too with all Dusky's food droppings so now I have to keep things extra tidy around his cage. Oh Hum !!! not my specialty !!!

Carol, I'm so glad you have the weekend off hon.

Ok well let's go girls, make today a FABULOUS Healthy Friday !!! Make good choices, share your smile, and be kind to others. MAKE IT HAPPEN !!!

Hello ladies...

A mouse in the house. There are traps that trap the mouse and you don't have to touch them or look at them. Peanut butter for bait is the best.

Its Friday finally... I have the weekend off! I'm going to the gym today and get myself headed in the right direction.I'm being too negative and whining too much!

Have a great day!!

Debigene, best way to get rid of little Ben is a mouse trap with peanut butter. Decon goes through a mouse in 24 hours and even shorter if it makes it to water. Have a big paper bag and shovel ready. Good luck!!

Hello all you wonderful PLOF women.
I have been relaxing and busy. My office is still not closed although I'm not taking any new clients. I go in 3 to 4 days per week. A very close friend had a heart valve put in 16 months ago and is back in the hospital because of chest pain. Her valve is not working properly, so I've been going in to see her.

Wwell I have to go order dinner.

Good evening ladies.

I hope this post finds everyone doing well and having a good day. I hope all kitties are doing better today and are clear of big clunky feet. I hope this day was less stressful as well. I hope good food choices was our focus and fitness has been part of our day.

I am waiting for Linda to come over for our evening of SCANDAL. She is ordering chinese food. I requested stir fried broccoli w/ shrimp brown rice and egg drop soup. (not sure which is better wonton or egg droop) I suspect 6 of one 1/2 dz of the other !!! Eating with Linda is not always with good choices available so I try to make the best I can. Looking forward to my show tho' so all is well. I got my walking and stairs in.

Enjoy the evening in whatever way makes you peaceful. TTFN my friends.

Carol, I'm so sorry to hear about your day and Lucky's little paw. Those cats get under our feet before we know it. I'm glad he got to the vet and had it wrapped and all's going to be fine. You, my dear, need a break and I hope you get a little some of that here at PLOF. emoticon to you and Lucky.

Cat, I bet just the thought of your surprise mail puts a huge smile on your face today. emoticon

I'm smiling myself with my exercise efforts and definitely can tell the difference with a free gym in the building. Before, more often than not, when I had to make a separate trip to the gym, I would blow it off or, if I went, I would be ready to leave after 30 or 45 mins. Last night I did 1 hr on the treadmill and then got over on the stationary bike for 15 mins. and did some leg presses.

Wishing you all a great day! emoticon emoticon

Good morning friends.

Carol I am SOOOOO sorry about little Lucky's injury hon. And you do not need to apologize. It is understandable if you have these negative moments with what you have to put up with. Your job is taking it's toll on you for sure. Do not let it take control of you, try to think of it as one of those obstacles you destroy !!!! Be kind to yourself hon, take that time off soon !!! We love you here at PLOF.

I want everyone to have a day full of good choices and moments of thankfulness for all the goodness in your life. Take time for YOU !!!!

Good morning.....

Have a great day. Yesterday sucked and by the way...my fitness minutes are at an all time low!
No fitness champ here and the scale is going up. I weighed around 120 for 3 years and now I'm at 130. So there you go my job is officially killing me.

I also stepped on my kittys foot after work yesterday and had too rush him to the vet. I had on my clunky required steel toed work boots and his foot started bleeding. Now he is wearing a blue bandage on his leg. He's okay it wasn't broken but the vet didn't want him to use his leg for a couple days. Poor kitty. I forgot to tell you about the work boots... Had too start wearing those 2 weeks ago for no reason. God forbid I might drop a roll of tape on my foot!! Big companies and their regulations...crazy!

Sorry for the negativity

Evening friends.

Cat congrats on your retirement, LOL !!! I hope you enjoy every cent of it hon, remember you earned it and should do something special for yourself as well. If you can set aside some for your actual retirement that would be great too. Your a great mom to think of your children's needs as well. I got one back in Sept from a company I worked for for 10 years too. I chose to let it ride until I actually retire instead of taking monthly pymnts or a lump sum. Sure I could use the money now but I think I will need it more when I retire.

Cheryl you sound so committed to your fitness. You are a great inspiration. Keep up the good work you are doing. You and Carol are def work out champs !!!

I invited my middle brother Brian over tonight for dinner (the meatloaf I made Sunday) I wanted to surprise him with a little baby bootie of his that my mother had saved with his name embroidered on it. He was so surprised and loved it. And dinner was quite good too if I must say so myself. Fresh steamed broccoli, dilled carrots, instant mash potatoes and of course the yummy meatloaf !!! He was so happy I had called him to come over.

Looks like time is up so have a good evening ladies and I'll see you in the morning.

Sweet dreams.

Greetings PLOF!

I'm totally exhausted today. Working from home and trying to wrap my mind around some news I got yesterday. I think I was in shock after I opened mail that asked me if I would like to withdraw in a lump sum a big sweaty bag of cash that is from a pension plan I didn't know I belonged to at Associated Grocers where I worked 1990-2000. Luckily the housemates were here to confirm I wasn't seeing things.

After I get a financial adviser (never needed one before as I lived paycheck to paycheck), I'll learn how to roll it over, pay off my debt and avoid as many penalties and taxes as possible. I've never had this kind of challenge before and I like itl! God bless the universe and all those in it!! Feel free to send me your Xmas wish list now...
emoticon

It's not like I can retire early but if I work it right I can help the kids graduate without an excessive amount of debt. Some is fine, but not the kind that sinks the ship before it even gets out of the harbor. That plus pad the thin lining of my retirement "plan".

You just never know what a new day will bring. Thanks everyone, hope you had a healthy, active day with plenty of positives!

Happy Hump Day, PLOF!

Goodness, Carol, take some of that sick time and stay strong.

Great news about your dad, Debigene, and I hope the procedure next Tuesday goes well.

I had a really awesome workout yesterday and hope to do it again tonight. emoticon There were only three women in there after I did my cardio so I stayed for some stretching and enjoyed the peaceful environment.

It's dark and blustery this morning so a good day to be at work.

Take care, everyone and have a great day!

Good Wednesday morning friends,

OMG !! that is over 41 days a year of sick time Carol, that's crazy !!! I've NEVER heard of such thing, what company even expects an employee to take 41 sick days a year??? Do you accummulate it? All I can say is WOW !!!

It's back to work today and it is pouring rain, I think it is suppose to be like this for the rest of the week, yuck. At least I will be indoors and don't work out in it !!! Always a positive somewhere right ???

Well hope your day goes well and that healthy choices will be your focus and that you get a chance to be as active as possible. Always remember to smile and be kind to others.

Hope to see you all tonight.

Good evening ladies;

Well my Dad did not have the surgery today, he assumed that he was but the appt was for a consultation and looks like he will have to go to the hospital for the out pt procedure next Tuesday since he will have to have anesthesia for this one. I honestly am relieved that he will be in a hospital, all I kept thinking of was Joan Rivers. He described the process to me and it was a good thing I was face to face with him so I could see what he was describing !!! I would have never understood it over the phone. I was so glad I went down to visit him today and the great news is that they got all the cancer !!!

I am happy to hear you ladies are back on track with making good choices either with foods or fitness. Cat I hope the cortisone shot will do the trick again this time.

Don't see any response from Jill yet ?????

Well it's back to work tomorrow for a short week, so that too is good news. Enjoy the evening friends and will look for you all tomorrow.

Sweet dreams.

Had an urge to jump back in before going to chase the dragon. And am glad I did because this is such a wonderful place to get motivated.

Cat, T is therapy. emoticon

A lovely evening to all...

Hi all!

So Cheryl – what’s T?

I’m super focused on re-kick starting the weightloss again. I’ve been very good this week so far and am back to tracking every little thing.

Made an appointment to have my shoulder/upper arm looked at on Thursday. The pain has been getting worse instead of better no matter what I try. It’s putting a big kink in my upper body workouts. I’m thinking another shot of cortisone might do the trick – it worked when I had it done maybe 4-5 years ago.

Congrats on the successful shopping trip Debigene. When I was young bras were referred to as “over the shoulder boulder holders”. Not very nice!!! Hope your dad’s surgery went smoothly. I know you’ll keep us posted. Those wine and art events are getting big here too. Some co-workers are considering, I might join it.

Gold, Bear outing sounds sweet – she’ll have a fun activity and something to take home and be proud of. You are an awesome mom.

ahhh, yes: Cynthia & Hope and Carol & Linda. Gold, I think you're onto something with that cheat sheet idea!

I'm feeling better and have T at lunch today.

Didn't make it to the gym last night and am glad I went home right after work. Got to bed early and slept relatively good for what I usely get (up 1 or 2 to go to the bathroom).

Will get to the gym tonight. Even though my scale was up today, I'm feeling really good and am going to make this a very successful week and push on into this fine month of Oct with good choices and lots of physical activity.

Enjoyed reading all the updates.

emoticon to all!

Good morning friends and a happy healthy Tuesday to you all.

I took a muscle relaxer last night so I ended up sleeping in a little later today, that was nice but I feel a little groggy this morning. I'm sure it will wear off soon. Dad is having the plastic surgery on his face today so when he gets home he will give me a call and I will go down to be with him for a few hours. I have one more load of laundry to do this morning and I think I will take Mya out for a bit of a walk before I go to Dad's. I think both of us need it, she hasn't had a good walk n a few days since my bro and SIL were away for the weekend.

WOW Carol that's a lot of sick time. Is that considered your PTO or JUST sick time ?????

Time for a healthy breakfast, All I ended up eating last night was a yummy Honey Crisp apple !!!

Have a healthy day making good choices in all you do. Keep a smile on your face to share with others and a positive attitude to make it all better !!!

Gold you and I were posting at the same time, so I must said you are a hoot !!! I LOL when I read your remarks. I always loved Bette Midler's call on the bra .... "tit slinger" I think that's right !!!
I bet your daughter will love Build a Bear, Happy Birthday to her and a wonderful pizza night for all.

Hello all

Debigene, glad you had a positive hold up experience. My grandchildren tease me about my cantaloupe carriers. It's one of the reason I quit running. All that noise as they slapped against my knees. When I was young I would pray that just once in my life I wanted to raise my arms and say "my cups runth over".

Today is my daughter's 44 birthday. So we are spending the evening at her group home. WE are taking lots of pizza, but I still don't have her presents. It's hard to shop for her. She never wears out clothes. She has an Ipad, and a computer where she does minor math like 5+4. She does find a word books and basic math books constantly. She likes bracelets, but has dozens. I think I will take her to "Make a Bear" .

Carol, take a sick day. You are getting worn out.

I think we need a cheat sheet on partners.

Have a great day!

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!!

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.

Just a quick note, I have to go to 2 of my great granddaughter's birthday party. This is the month we have 6 birthdays. My granddaughter-in-law makes the best looking Halloween birthday cakes. I'll try to get some pictures.

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!!

Carol

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!!
