I often struggle to log over 6000 steps on the weekends that I am not active. At work I am on the go all day, but sometimes on the weekends I need that rest.

trying to get through the week on auto-pilot and hoping I can rest on the weekend. I need a break.

Left my Fitbit at home on Saturday. SO upset with myself! We walked the Ingleside Mall after bailing out the train show and I have NOTHING to show for it.

On Sunday I tracked less than 10,000 steps which surprised me but still it was a good day for a weekend. Sometimes on weekends I don't track much if I stay home because our house is so small.

I found some Lego club people up there who are willing to meet for lunch. I am organizing a small kid-friendly meeting. It's still in the planning stages but it should be fun.

Hope the weather holds out for us.

I generally go to Hadley B&N. It is the closest. Sometimes we go to Holyoke or the one near WestFarms. Probably in that order. Hadley, Holyoke, West Farms... I've been to a couple of others.

My husband has something in VT at the end of February and I've already checked the maps to see that there is a Barnes & Noble nearby. I'm not sure of the size or anything, but there is also a mall nearby too. I figure between the 2 Abby and I should have wi-fi and food for the day while he attends his convention (it's on a Saturday).

Do you go to Hadley for B&N? I like the Enfield store the best, but that would be an additional 15 minutes from Ingleside for you. For me they are both about the same distance.

We go up occasionally. It's maybe an hour from us, so about the same as going to Ingleside without the hassles of Ingleside plus better sales tax etc. There is a music/dvd store, Bull Moose, that I have posted about before. There is Kohls, Staples, Target, etc.. no Barnes & Noble though.

We went to several stores in Keene that day. The only one I called was Target. Next time we go up, which won't be for a few weeks I will just ask when we are there. Five Guys, Bull Moose, Staples.... I think that covers it. I don't want to bother the staff with phone calls.

I haven't been up to Keene since I lost my scarf. I have no idea if it's at Staples there or somewhere else. I guess I've pretty much given up on it.

I'm thinking it's in the Keene Target. That's my best guess right now. I probably left it in the ladies room on Saturday.

I misplaced my scarf on Saturday and haven't had time to look for it yet. I wonder if I lost it in a store somewhere but I haven't even had time to check my car in daylight for it yet.

The cold bothers my asthma as well. So does the heat. I try to wear a scarf in cold weather, but it is awkward at times to do this.

Yeah well I haven't gotten out there yet. Asthma is also a problem. If it's cold enough to be out on the lake ice then it's probably cold enough to hurt my lungs.

I think Wal-Mart had adult snow pants. You should probably wear pads too given the risk of falling and injury.

Tried to get her into ice skating with skates but she's not into it. We just go on shoes. I can't use ice skates anymore. I can barely rollerskate. I do want to get some snowpants for myself some time because it gets windy and cold out there.

My daughter is loving this cold weather. She had me drop her off at the end of the street last night even though it was dark and she boot skated home. I stayed behind her and she used my headlights to see where she was going (good thing we live on a quiet dirt road). She plans to go out on the ice again this afternoon. Too bad the lake hasn't frozen over yet. She is looking forward to that. I am not.

Janine I hear you on the pain.

I slipped in the driveway but caught myself on my husband's car so I didn't fall. Wrenched my back though and I am sore now.

It is in the single digits outside but 75 degrees inside my office. I don't know how to dress for this. I bundled up to come to work but then stripped off layers in the rest room because I was too hot for desk work. UGH. I will probably freeze at lunchtime.

Family can be such a funny thing to deal with. I didn't talk to one brother for 5 years after Jan died. This was very hard for me since his kids were my kids' best friends growing up.

Suffering with a pulled muscle today from picking up all those pellets Saturday. I am trying to get it to loosen up, but it is being stubborn for sure.

I have a brother who doesn't even talk to me. I don't know where he lives or who he is married to or dating... my understanding is he has been married once, maybe twice by now. Not sure.

We have one family friend that we haven't done gifts with yet. Usually we do it on New Years Eve but that didn't happen this year. We've all been a little disorganized. I'm sure we'll figure it out soon. It's on my husband's side so I just have to sit back and wait and see.

Becca....I have a brother I haven't heard when we will exchange gifts either! I may have to just swing by there this week and drop them off. Sad that this is how family has become for some. This brother chooses to keep himself isolated from the rest of the family. His doing, not ours.

Sounds like you both had the holiday gift giving chaos that attacks most everyone! Please don't feel singled out or alone in your "suffering"! I am still waiting for my brother to announce when he will be having Christmas at his place with my mother, myself and my Aunt (coming from Northern Maine) with his 2 children (ages 2 and 8)...So I still have gifts in my apt. which I am worrying about his liking, their liking, if anyone is going to like anything!! And you've been through this already! My case is no exception, just delayed!!

Yours Because His,

Holiday gifts can be hard. I was really worried about how my dad would react to the shirts I got for him. I was also worried about Abby's reaction to her gifts from Santa. Santa didn't bring what she asked for.

Glad you found them! I am stilling waiting for a gift to be delivered. Not sure why it is delayed, but hopefully it will arrive this week.

Struggling with my son today. I got tickets for the Globetrotters and he's not liking it. He even went so far to call it "stupid" because he doesn't like basketball. He called and offered his ticket to my niece's son. I am sure you can imagine my feelings are hurt.

I realized last night that I forgot my brother. I usually buy him and his wife a combined gift, but this year I bought her something. And then I realized I need to pick up a little something for my great niece to open since I bought her a gift card. While I know she will love the gift card, she's 5 and needs to have something small to play with or look at. I am starting to wish it would be over today.

I hear that about Windows 10.

Here you go- My husband is a computer programmer, a real whiz at electronic stuff but... I bought a new alarm clock several years ago, one with bigger numbers so I can see the time without my glasses on, and he still has refused to learn how to use it.

Enfield is actually closer for me, but after the bad experience I had a few weeks ago I won't go back there. I wonder why Hadley closed. It was a small store, but I can't think of any competition up there.

I only use a desktop (with 2 monitors) at work. At home I have a laptop and a tablet. Best Buy is gone from Hadley so I guess you would be at the Ingleside Mall store probably unless there is another one around. I am hoping not to go into that mall until after xmas.

Thanks. I may need it!

I am going to buy a new computer tomorrow. My home one keeps crashing. I have a laptop I can use, but prefer my desktop. Best Buy has a good deal on one. Just didn't plan to spend that money before Christmas.

Maybe you could do some classes at URI or Mount Holyoke. Would that be any cheaper? I know there are schools that partner with Simmons. Some of our library staff teach at Simmons also.

Yes I was until I met with them and realized I would have to take many classes. I think I figured it out that it would cost me over $30,000 to get the degree! I just cannot swing that amount, unless I got really good scholarships and aid.
