I didn't realize how long ago it was that I posted here. A lot has happened, I moved. I got engaged! Then I realized that I had been named a team leader. Does anyone have any ideas how to get people moving around here? No one seems to be posting on daily accountability. What is up with you? Post and tell us, please?

Well...I have that 'intent' for fresh enthusiasm. I added about 10 pics of scrapbook pages last night. I hope more scrappers will add photos of their work in there! I'd love to see what all of you are doing, and all your different styles!
Additionally...I joined a 28 day challenge group lead by Coach Jen. ...though I can't find the first video, yet! How's that for stifled enthusiasm?!
Moving forward!

Hi SBS! I used to be a member here. Slip slid away - gained back my weight. Now I'm back to try again. I DID, however actually get some pages scrapped, instead of just collecting! I'm trying to post some of them!
Hope I make some progress in both areas here!

hugs to all!

Mary

jackye your so right about being in the middle and if my daughter was stronger i would tell her to tell him but since she isnt my mom instincts kick in...i dont need her upset no more than what she has going on now...i always seem to be the one they both come running to to discuss or vent...hubby is lucky they dont talk to him ...and then im left with the big worry on my shoulders...what a neat idea to go to a counselor every so often..never been and hubby wont go so out that goes..i would go in a flash..today was suppose to go in for my flu shot not that i wanted it and i told hubby all day yesterday but he didnt get up till almost 1pm today and my appt was at 2pm so i canceled it..i told him i did too and he said he dont remember me telling him at all..i did all day..makes me feel like crap knowing he dont even listen..
I had to email sons wife today and tell them straight out that its not a good idea for them to go with us..its too much on my daughter and she isnt ready for that...told her that if they are serious about going then plan it for next yr and we will go with them...just not this time..yes i have a big kennel but i dont dare leave him in it for three days...no way...my son will have to watching him or i dont go..i told him this too..so we shall wait and see if he gets an attititude.
worked on my meetings party plan and this week i have to get the gift basket for our rally and package it up..i also need to get started on a baby book for a birthday gift for a 1 yr old boy. a request from my daughter for her sil baby..
Hey i ordered me a YONANAS machine..anyone hear of them???you put frozen fruit of any kind and run it through the machine and it comes out like frozen yogurt and no other ingredients needed..i can put on waffles, toast, or eat it out of a bowl...i can mix and match the fruits to create some really cool sorbets...just think i will get lots of use of this...
ok well time to go lay down...have a great weekend ladies...cathy

HUGS, have a great day!!!

evening ladies...today was my tops and i lost another .4 so im happy...i cant seem to manage a full pound but i guess all the little ones add up..i rather have a little one than a gain..haha
Hey i heard about the COL but i heard it was going to be for the start of new yr in 2012. and you can bet your increase there wil be a increase in medicare..oh heck yea they dont want us having too much more...they all have their hands in our pockets and waiting for anything extra we might get...its fustrating..I didnt hear about the PAPS now i like that..but you know its all about money not health....we are lucky that we get any insurance company to ok what we do get..im so sick of waiting for approvals from people who sit behind a desk and judge if we should or shouldnt...Why do we have doctors if they cant respect their findings..?
Rosie ok did i miss something..is this BF the ex still or someone new? never seen if you moved on or not...Glad you got your other car and i think keeping the othere one for parts would be a good idea since its the same kind...would save money...
hope you had a good time visting its always nice to get away..Susan have you gotten some more cards done? i know it has to be over whelming to do so many...when are they needed?
Susan funny how we become our parents huh? LOL we tell ourselfs as kids we wont and yet
we do..hahaha
I have to get a vaginal ultra sound to check out my cyst and see if its getting bigger or not..since with the uterine cancer they want to make sure its still the same..i do too...i hate doing such personal tests like that but i know this is important...
I have a delima ladies and need your input...i will try and make it short..(yea right)
Daughter & hubby and kids going to california...They invite us and we said ok...now all is set up with family to go...Then i ask my son to watch our dog and he said yes. now i hear from his wife in email that they want to go but Daughter didnt want anyone else going..we are going with them...now how do i say something to my son plus he said he would watch the dog and if he dont then i have to stay home...im afraid my son will get mad that he cant go although he was not asked to go in the first place..he is jealous we are going..so he is jumping on the band wagon..my daughter doesnt need to be over whelmed with her brothers wife and troubles. i dont think she will handle it and im afraid to talk to either one of them..what do i do?
hubby said to email DIL and say son said he will watch dog and thats it..i did do that heard no response yet...we spent christmas with him last yr and grandsons...so this yr we are with daughter...its special too cause her husband is Legal now and wants to see where she was raised..and meet the rest of her family..always dilema...ugh...ok well hope you ladies are all doing well...will check in later if i can..hugs...cathy

HUGS, have a great day!!!

its friday evening and i got a call from daughter...PRAISE GOD!!!!! she got approved for her disability thru her work...now she dont have to worry that her paychecks have stopped..she was so worried seeing her husband hold 2 jobs down and running her all over to doctors and therapy and one on ones and now she knows she can contribute while she is healing herself..
this is such a relief for the family....now i guess we will go to CALIFORNIA... for christmas..wow i havent been back home in over 7 yrs...this will be so much fun...
now i can wear my new black dresses for the holdiays....yahoooooooooooo i get to dress up.
the family hasnt seen me since i lost all the weight so far..no one from back home..im nervous.. just had to come by and share the great news...

HUGS, have a great day!!!

Jackye words of wisdom well taken..thanks and guess what my daughter and her husband are now going to make tamales and sell them ..they have already customers that want it on a regular basis and they are also hooking up with this spanish guy who works in a mexican bakery and said they can sell their sweet bread also..they came by tonight to drop some off for hubby..wow so warm and soft..yummmmm...i got one with no sugar on it..my SIL really knows how i feel about goodies..anyways so with this new business they can really bring in
some money each month and it will help her focus on being productive..GODS PLANS IN THE MAKING....
went to tops today and i had a .5 loss..so i am happy although i feel so swollen but im not complaining...im just glad im going down slow and steady..im now at 253.6 YEA!!!!
Your right about corn and potatoes..my two favorite...i try to not eat that all the time but what the heck do i do with all the fresh corn on the cob i just got..i cooked it up and freezed it for now but heck i cant let it rot in the freezer...hahahaha any suggestions?
today was busy for me...it is back to being warm again too and that i dont like..darn weather.
no big plans for the weekend...take care all will check in tomorrow...hugs..cathy

HUGS, have a great day!!!

hi ladies.......i m gonna try that next year with my beans.learn something new everyday......cathy i know that in our meetings they say that like for example watermelon has a lot of sugar so if you eat too muchof that and are not losing weight that could be a culprit...based on the ww philosophy of free fruits and veggies....on the other hand they say that eating fruits and veggies is a heck of a lot better than other stuff...i think its a crap shoot....some times you ll lose and others not so good......i think your high starch veggies..pots and corn are probably not so good to eat a lot of.....oh who knows in this diet crazy world of ours....it all depends on who you talk to at the time..now they had something on the news last night about vitamins not being good gor you...what????.......i guess if there are some people out there that get their vitamins from al the "good food they eat well then sure but for normal folk thats not the case....soundslike the cards are kinda like my quilts...procrastinate but eventually you will get going and not stop...i seem to work better under pressure....i am sitting here listening to one of the labs snoring so loud..it sounds like my hubby use to...haha...hamburger helper...haha....can identify!!!...cathy i dont know if i shared this before but if i did here it is again....sometimes GOD allows things in your life to fall apart..on order that other thins then fall into place"........maybe there is a better job out their for your daughter ..some plan that she doesnt know about yet....yeah i think i just posted that the other day......think my memory is shot!!!well gonna go tothe dentist..yuck...catch ya later.....jackye

susan how long do you have to do these cards? how is it coming along?
cant wait to hear more about the shelly beans...
Hey question???/ do you think that eatting too much fruit or veggies is bad?

Hey susan even with your splurges you seem to do very well..im not so lucky if i eat really bad choices my hips will show it..and so will the darn scale...i notice now the sodium is what is my culpret..darn sodium..hahaha
well i dont go to the fair its just too expensive and i get to wanting to buy all the cute things and taste all the goodies..they always have such good smells out there..i like looking at the booths and i dont ride rides but like watching them scream..hahaha
well today was another good day..i asked my daughter to come over and wow she did..she brought the whole family..i had some stuff i wanted them to have..a friend dropped off some stuff for my sale and i wanted the family to get some of it...clothes and shoes..i like that i can help my daughter out this way..the kids were so excited and even her husband got lots of good pants and jackets...it feels good to help someone out.
we had a good vist..so i was busy all day with them and then when they left i started pricing my jewlery and items so i dont have to keep telling hubby what i want...hahah
we might be going to california for christmas..my daughter wants to go and show her husband around he never been and she asked me if we would go too...of course i would i could go see my family..and vist my moms gravesite...and see my best friend..hubby dont have to drive so he said he wouldnt mind going either..if he dont have to drive he likes to go..
so we are going to see if she gets her disability approved from work and if so we will go..so now we wait and see..
thanks for explaining what shelly beans are..never heard of that before..
well i did ok with eatting but skipped lunch...i had about 1250 calories today..i need at least 1500 but since im being busy i dont concentrate on eatting..i like it but i hope im not messing myself up...
not much going on went to church and then visted with family..
hope everyone had a good weekend...it goes so fast...ok talk to you later...
hugs...cathy

hi ladies well been busy with crafts for my sale in november..sent you some pictures so you can see them..for some reason probably my dial up i cant post on my sparks page so i just send them from my laptop...hope you all dont mind..
been busy with that and then today i made me a nice hearty breakfast and wow the energy i feel..my gosh i feel like im on speed but its food..hahahaha i had an omelete with 2eggs, cheese, 1oz of turkey, broccoli,carrots, onions and then i had a side of one tomatoe ..man im full and energized..hahaha
hubby is taking his meds now so hopefully by the 31st of this month i can tell a difference and if not then im going back in..
oh gosh rosie thats funny you laughed at tumbleweed..we have them all over our deserts and i see them rolling all around..whats scary is when you come accross a huge one down the road while driving and you have to get out of its way..they get really big believe me..
Jackye i can just picture you holding on for dear life with them winds..we got some about a week ago outside and it blew my fat butt back a few steps as well...Hey i wish my fat would fly
off of me..hahahaha
Shelly beans what the heck is that? are they beans or candy? or what????
Susan sure would like to see some of your cards i bet they are awesome...i think a personalized card is so much better then a store bought one...im glad no one sends me none cause i would not get rid of them..hahaha the store bought ones i make into book marks or boxes or use as decorating other things...
well i went to tops thursday and i lost .8 of a pound this week..yea...so now im down to 254.
my goal for this yr is to be at 250..i was 288 in january so not as good as last yr but still ok..
i think i will be ok if i reach 200 yea that is still big but for my frame i think i can live with that..but maintaining it will be a whole nother story...maintaining is so hard...
anyone carving pumpkins..im not but im decorating one with paint instead..then later i will roast the seeds and eat the pumpkin..we dont get trick or treaters around us ever so no sense in decorating for it..but i like pumpkins so thats why i will get one to decorate...they keep longer too when you just bedazzle the outside and not cut into it..haha
well ladies hope you all have a great weekend keep them projects going and talk to you all real soon...
cathy

HUGS, have a great day!!!

Good grief you guys i cant keep up with all the posting there must be something wrong with me..i swear you dont come here daily and wow its over whelms me...i will just post what i am up to and what has happened since we last chatted and just know i did read all the posts below me...wow susan with all the partying yu did you really did good anyways..wish i had your metabolism cause i cant eat crap without doubbling my numbers...Sorry rosie i thought it was you but i was wrong...see what i mean i get one post mixed in with the next..geesh!!!
I will try and look at the pictures..i love fall its my favorite time of yr along with spring.
Soon the snow will be falling and im happy i dont get that but we do get rain..hey we got some tonight..yea. im surprised i was able to get online when it rains i loose my pc and phone.
i love hearing about all what you make jackye and i wish i could have half the talent..
OH talking about pricing im really not good at that..i always under price my stuff cause i just want to make money and i dont consider the time it takes me just the material..i know i should but i dont...i got me some material to make them wristlet keychains..really cute material.
so now i have potato bags, wristlets, cell phone case keychains..
I have flax oil in my fridge too..i used it for some indian cooking..i was told by my members that it is wonderful for my health...they told me to put 1 tsp. a day in my food daily..it helps with memory and menopause and such matters...some put it in smoothies or soup or what ever they want...so i put mine in my food when i cook...it is expensive so im using it..
I hope you will give it a try in some of your foods too..
well no more news from son so another waiting game again..went to the doctors monday
with hubby and they did alot of stuff to him..he got his tetnis shot, flu shot, lab work, prostrate blood test, kidney and liver blood work..I talked to the doctor about his depression and he told us that with his pain its very normal for how he acts...they uped his Prozac to 40mg. he was only taking 20mg. and they uped his other bedtime medicine to go along with the prozac..he said in 3 weeks he should feel a difference..i sure hope so..oh i asked about if it will help him eat more cause i was concerned with him eatting only 1 meal a night only..the doc said he has gained 8 lbs this yr so far..i was shocked...i think its all the soda..hahah
anyways hubby didnt get mad at me for going in and i was proud he broght up about changing his meds cause they werent working...they changed alot of them..so im glad i went.
he got lots of charlie horses in his legs and doc said to get him some leg socks that support the legs..i have to find them..but he said if he puts them on before getting up in the morning he will notice a big change..if he waits to put them on after he has been walking around it wont work..so a good tip.. anyways thats what i have been doing oh and i did declutter my living room yesterday too..got my bookshelfs all cleared off...i havent been exercising on my bike but i have been working alot around the house..wonder if that counts...??
oh about that fridge yes i got it and it works wonderful and its bigger than my last..very
happy with it..well ok ladies i guess im done..sorry im not mentioning everything like you guys
i just keep forgetting what was said and i cant see the other posts as i am posting..hahaha
my memory sucks...

good night , sleep tight....cathy

ps....WHERES OUR NEW POSTER????

HUGS, have a great day!!!

evening ladies...wow rosie i hate moving my pc and webtv around but i have done it several times and it was a hassle..i have so many wires for my printer and for my pc and webby and so i wish you luck..i havent seen your runners yet but will try and take a peek soon been so busy..
Jackye you make it sound so easy to make maybe i might try something small to see if i can manage what yu mentioned...im glad your DIL spoke up..i have know some woman who were afraid to tell cause especially if their friends or family know the molester...they feel so awful to say bad about that person and right away they think they wont be believed..its hard to admit such a awful thing but its good she is not owning it..its not her fault and she needs the support..its something that cant be forgotten...i was almost raped at a easter event with my family when i was just barely 11. we all went to the park and i went with my cousin on a nature hike..well i was a big girl and she isnt so she went faster than me..but what happened was i came to a narrow walkway that i feared i couldnt manage so cousin went on and i tried to back track to another trail..well ran into this old man and he backed me into a huge rock and asked me questions..i was so scared and shy so i didnt want to be disrespectful to a old man but when he pinned me against the rock and put his thumbs on each side of my pants and started pulling them down i knew i was doomed..i got so dang scared i pushed him away as hard as i could and ran ran ran...i fell down places that werent even trails..i didnt care i was cutting my self up i wanted out..well came to the bottom and there he was waiting and i just ran past him as fast as i could..went to the picnic area and told my mom and the police was called...they never found him..i will never forget that moment..i was horified..
i hope your DIL gets the help she needs..
Oh dear your all talking about snow i dont gt to see that here..our winters are wet and
cold but i think i have had it snow here maybe 2 times since i lived in az..
Oh i would love to go to a restaurant and watch them cook it on the grill in front of us..we have them here too...they sound like fun..
Rosie i might not like your bland cooking but i would enjoy your company..
I cant eat hot sauce i have acid reflux and that would kill me to try..
Well susan enjoy your events and like you said start monday again..how are you liking this diet anyways? are you happy with your results?
you go and have fun and yes susan i got the doggie costume email..they were so cute..
well son came by today and he is not a happy camper..remember how i felt well its happening..he is not happy and he is keeping quiet cause he says he dont matter..he spoke of leaving cause he says she wont change about taking sides with her kids..i told him i hope he can make it work but if he doesnt dont just up and leave..i said get a job and gather your stuff and take one of the cars..they have a company car from her daddy...so i said leave that for her and take the other one if he does decide to leave...i told him to think it out first and plan before doing anything..he said he will..so i will pray that things work out for him..he was so sad today..
been cleaning big time..today i worked on my kitchen and cleaned out pots and pans and cupboards and re arranged stuff i dont want..i was so happy to get all them cookbooks out of the way...my mothers stuff i have stored away...
ok church in the morning and back home to start some more work..haha
take care all....



HUGS, have a great day!!!

hu hot is a mongolian grill where you take a bowl and put your meat choice and then if you want noodles and then every kind of veggie you can think of..then sauce--i use "not so sweet and sour"...then you take it to this huge round grill and they cook it for you as you watch...you can goback as many times as you want..it is soooooo good and hardly any points for me at all so we go there quite a bit on wednesdays for a treat ..that and pizza are my "date night" treats....i feel bad for your dil susan ...it seems to be the norm that the victim always feels guilty..my ex husbands cousin molested my oldest daughter (gd that was in treatment mom)...she was just a little girl...that was part of her problem when she drank that her self esteem was so low...its sad what damage stuff like that can do to a person so i hope your dil gets the counseling that she needs and can forgive her father if only for her peace of mind.....they say to forgive is to heal...that and to confront....we took our drive thru the state park today and man the colors were just awesome...i will post a pic as my spark pic when we get back to town and put some others on the site too..it was so peaceful driving thru the woods and just taking it all in.....tomorrow they are havng a fall leaf fest there buti wanted to avoid the crowds and go today.....it is chilly here today but tomorrow it is spose to be warm again....one of my facebook friends said that the farmers almanac says 200 in of snow this winter...ick...well the little dog that we are sitting for is an absolute angel and i think he remembers that i am his gramma from when we would go to sons house...the others dogs get along wth him too so it has been really pleasant..he lays by my head and sleeps....ohhhhhhh....well middle daughter is planning on coming to the lake tomorrow afternoon and we will hit the quilt shop and try to get the rest of her material for her quilt and then i should be done buying material...i figure when i get them all done i will take a "grouop" shot and post it on here...you say you cant quilt but this is sooooo easy ..it isnt really like regular quilting idont think...just 2 nine in squares with a 6.5 in square f batting in the middle ...sew ea sqaure with an X to hold the batting in and then sew 7 squares together for 10 rews...then sew the 10 rows together..clip the seams in so when you wash it it will ravel and you are done...then i can do my purse...i am so excited about that project..if i do that good and it is easy i might do that for gifts sometime too...hows the diet going susan....are you happy with your weight loss on it?...hey rosie if you win the million dollars are you going to share it with your friends......huh.huh.huh.......well ladies i m gonna get this posted before this thing drops me since i m at the lake and its "snitty"....have a good saturday...jackye

OH i wish someone would make that deal with me too i would jump on it like a hot rabbit...!!!
Well i wish him alot of luck and with support he can do it that is so important knowing that you arent going to be judged or alone..thats why i go to my meetings..oh and speakng of meeting today was so refreshing of a day...havent had one of them in a while so long over due...first off i lost .5 so i was happy..last week i stayed the same so a half a pound i will take..hee hee
2 woman approached me before the meeting and handed me each $40.00 for my trip..WOW i was in awwwwwwwwww...i told them i cant accept that but they insisted they wanted me to have it to help me out and they told me how much i motivate them..that was so sweet..so i put it in my bill..then 2 members brought me some cans so wow wow wow i hit the jackpot today with lots of help for my trip..hey every little bit helps so im making thank you cards to send them this week..
I wish i could quilt they are so pretty..i dont have that in me to do..im so lousy at designs..
well i did my 30 mins of biking so that is done for today..i feel good once i get it out of the way . I do hope they do something monday when i go to the doctors with hubby..he needs to get this fixed..Please pray for my patience and forwardness to step forward and say someting.
Have to go food shopping tomorrow..i love when i go get the food..fresh produce and fish and chicken...im out totally.. i just had me a mini sandwich thin with a small patty with a string cheese and a few chips..been a while since i ate chips..didnt over due ...i was good.

wow cathy you sure do have a lot going on right now....your daughter sounds like a very wonderful mom.......i hope your gs realizes how lucky he is to have such support....i agree that maybe in time when he matures he will decide what he wants..they go thru lots of phases in those teenage years...bottom line is we love our kids and grandkids no matter what....i sure hope you can get some help for your huby....i m sure its hard for him too just like it so hard for you....stick to your guns and talk to the doc tho dont back down....got more squares done yesterday again....if i can keep this pace up i just might mak it...i did decide that the quilt i make for son i am going to say is for the both of them..that way they will also get something little to go with it...wow rosie you will have to for siure post pics of what you are making....i love table runners too and have ones for all the different seasons along with placemats...i would really like to see the hats too.....i m going to make pilowcases to go with the quilts if i get time...they look so simple to make and hardly any prep time so i think i can do that too....susan you are really doing good with you diet....i looked at salmon yesstrday at the store debated and ended up not buying any....i did get my chicken made tho....we are going to huhot toNight for supper...do you guys have those where you live?...yes we are getting that cooler temps too..and non too soon...it hit 90 yesterday and i put the air on for a little while to cool it down....much prefer the cooler days .....son called me wed morn at 3 to tell me a co worker of his died while on duty...they think he had a heart attack but arent for sure.....he ws only 40 years old.....my son was crying and he hardly ever does that..i felt so bad for him...i called him later in the day and we talked about his weight ( he is about 50 lbs overweight)..i told him that i worry about him too and if he has to wrestle with prisioners or something and over exert himself he could go down too....he toldme that he reflected on stuff and was reevaluating ..like how he gets impatient with the kids etc and is really thinking a bout stuff...we talked about how you just never know when you might die and you should live with no regerts and make good memories for your loved ones and others to remember you ......so i told him that if needs incentive to lose weight that i will give him $5 a lb up to 50 by the time we go to branson.....he told me we have a deal....if he sets his mind to it he will do it..and then maybe dil will too (she has about that much at least too )....now if someone would make that deal with me...hahaha.....oh dear hubby i have a deal for you......lol....susan i m glad you talked to your dil...its good your son gave her an ultimatum...maybe thats all she needed...lets hope so....anyway it was good you talked..sorry that she woke up before her procedure was done tho.....i sure dont remember anything about mine....thank goodness...so rosie how are things going with your ex....is he still in the picture or has he moved back to nd?..gees why does life have to be so complicated sometimes?????....well i walked yesterdaya nd am getting ready to go again this morning..its cool but the wind is howling....hopefully it will be at my back...ha....well enjoy your day ladies...talk to you later...jackye

Good job ladies on the workouts being done..i did 35 mins. on my bike today while talking again..it passes the time..
OH i love crock pot cooking that is fabulous and i just got that chicken and dumpling recipe from Hungry girl so im going to make that...
I love pulled pork too...yummy... Well Rosie sounds like your being busy with your runner..I love table runners but dont have a table no more..traded it in for a tv tray..haha
Susan oh i feel bad your DIL woke up during her procedure that will always haunt her now i know it would me..i refuse to do that test..i know i know but im not going to even try that
test..just too embarrassing for me..i do the one yrly for the throat for my Barretts disease but refuse the butt test..hee hee..
You mentioned PAXIL that is what my daughter takes and keeps insisting me to get her dad to get on it..his PROZAC is not working and it didnt work for her either..she has been wonderful on PaxIL SO i wonder about how it might work for hubby..im so scared trying new meds...he is very high tollerant to drugs so i wonder if it will help him..i dont want him to get mean i couldnt handle that again...oh god no...dang now im nervous but when i go im going to ask the doctor about changing his meds no matter what that one isnt working and im so wanting him to be more lively than he is...will keep you posted..
Yes been having alot of family issues and it dont help with eatting...but im trying.
tomorrow is my wiegh in at TOPS.. i stayed the same last week and so i have no clue what i will do tomorrow...i hate weigh ins...I give the program tomorrow for our meeting so i made a bunch of questions and we will take turns giving answers about issues pertaining to weightloss and how we cope or not ...i love discussions we find out so much about each other and we all love to gab...haha
Oh i love FALL and yes its cooling down here...Yea!! today was 100 but i love that the mornings are so fresh and cool..i like taking my little older dog out early so he can enjoy a brisk walk in the yard before the heat...couldnt do that during the summer..my animals all got fat laying around the house..hahaha
My daughter told me about some water she makes daily to drink..she hates the taste of water so i pla;n on trying some..one is made with a peeled cucumber put in a blender with some water and a small amount of splenda and a dash of lime...she said its so good and
delicious...she also does cantalope and watermelon this way except she just puts the fruit, water and sugar..not alot just a touch..she said the whole family enjoys drinking fruit water this way and she said its not high at all in calories so i should try it and see..so i will..
i never heard of this so im curious as how it will taste.. i will begin to start drinking hot tea with the cooler weather coming..i love hot tea..
I worked on some craft projects for my yard sales..i made some key chain cell phone carriers to hang on the outside of purses or belts...dont have to search for the phone no more its right out where it can be reached fast...im selling them with my potato bags and i then made some cloth key chains...seen a picture of a woman who bought a pattern of a dog collar but instead of making the colar she made key chains..so i did me some too my way..heck im only selling things like 2 bucks and carriers for 3 bucks and potato bags for 5 bucks..figure maybe i can sell them and get some more money for my trip..and if they dont sell they will be gifts..hahahaha so either way they will be used..
so that is what i have been doing...oh did you all watch Dr oz last week with that 700 lb woman who wants to weigh 1800..wow i was so disgusted with her..
i didnt join that doctor oz challenge i have so many other stuff im on i forget half the time
to log or check the site...so i just passed..
if you all did i wish you lots of success and luck..
well time will only tell what way my GS goes..all i can do is pray he stays safe and thinks before he acts...
ok well got to get up early so will check in tomorrow...hugs to you all
cathy


HUGS, have a great day!!!

First off HI PAM im Cathy from arizona i hope you keep coming in to check on us all we love having company dont we girls?
Well i want to wish all who have lost good job! and for those like me that are still struggling not to give up..we have all come to dang far to do that...but i know how easy said that is..
Good job Jackye on the quilts that is awesome...and as for my daughter no she does not have that type of anxiety but she does have alot of the others but i am happy to report she is really doing well..she isnt working they wont let her for at least 6 more months so her job is being debated right now..so they are tryng to put her on disability from her job..so her therapy is doing good and she looks forward to them so im happy for her..our relationship is so much closer..actually i didnt call her yesterday cause i was clued to the HSN SCRAPBOOK shows and she missed me so we talked today for 3 hours..wow..as she talked i did my biking and cleaning so i love my cordless phone..haha
As for DIL i have no ideal what is wrong with all of ours..i have to admit i am a DAM GOOD ONE even if my MIL dont agree right now..but i know i have been..haha
Well ladies between all these recipes and susan and your 17 day diet im over whelmed with all that is going on in here..YOu have been doing so good and im proud of you and im glad that even with little slip ups your still doing a heck of a job..keep up the good work..
Hey i want in on that challenge i need some kind of release...
Well i know there is so much more i am missing and please ladies forgive me but this week has been very eye opening and heartning for me..first off hubby IS really in bad depression and we have been bickering about me talking to his doctor and im going no matter what.
then today while talking to my daughter i found out that my GS is bi-sexual..he is almost 17 yrs
old and he walked in on our conversation and i heard him tell his mom he was bi-sexual..he said he knew it for a long time now just didnt know what to do about it..he is still a virgin but has thoughts of both sexes and im so proud of my daughter..as i was put on hold i listened and she told him that it doesnt matter to her and that she loved him no matter what..but did he understand what it meant to be that..he said yes and so she went through a series of questions and he answered freely..wow i was astounded. but proud of how they both were
respecting each other..anyways he says he likes girls better but he does feel for guys as well.
My daughter gave him a brief sex lecture and and yes i was still on the phone listening..Do you really think i would hang up now..no way!!!
He informed her his tendancies lean more to girls but that is why he figures he is bi-sexual..she just kept telling him he is ok and what he chooses will not change how the family feels for him..i then told her to tell him i love him no matter what but he still needs to get his life together..hahaha
so i have been dealing with alot of emotional stuff and its alot to take in..oh he also told her that he likes the feel of womans clothes..he dont want to wear themm just feel them..so see there is alot going on with my GS...i dont know if any of this is what is why he has been nothing but hassles for yrs or not but im glad he was able to come out openly and talk to his mom and she told him he can come to me too..I told my daughter i ws so proud of her for how she handled the news and talked to him..really impressed the heck out of me..Guess you never know how you will react till it happens to you...
so anyways i have not been posting hardly anywhere too much going on here..
but im trying to focus on my eatting but that dang SODIUM is kicking my butt...i dont salt but i cant find alot of sodium free foods that i use..but im working on it..
ok well i will be back sometime sorry for not posting more..
hugs...cathy

HUGS, have a great day!!!
