Morning team. Well, now we are going down to get the car tomorrow afternoon after I get off work. We are bringing it home unless some unforeseen catastrophe strikes. DH gave him warning and told him how mad and upset I was. DH said he was real quiet and didn't say anything. For his sake, we had better get the car tomorrow. He will not like me very much if he cancels again. Just sayin'.

For a Friday, so far it's pretty slow. We've had a few customers but not too many. Probably will pick up later as people get off work.


Had some rain overnight and some drizzle this morning. Supposed to clear some this afternoon. We have a meeting tonight for a private camping club we belong to.

TTFN and TGIF!

That is a long day Earnie. Hope you've recovered.

I am exhausted! I took my 84 year old neighbor to Nashville for what we both thought was a quick surgical procedure. Her appointment was at 11 a.m. and we thought we would be out of there and on our way home by 2 p.m. Turns out we got home at 8 p.m. I am stiff from sitting in a hospital waiting lounge all day. I did walk the halls and got some exercise, but still worn out.

Hello team. Made it to the gym this morning. Really didn't feel like it after being so angry last night. It really sapped the energy out of me. I'm better, but not back up to par yet. It just really bothers me when the guy knew for 2 days that we were coming down on Wednesday and he waits till we are on our way down and has someone else call to cancel. Sorry, venting again.

Slow day at work, makes a body tired. Work to do at home though. Need to do some more work in the camper to get it ready to go next weekend and need to change out winter clothes to spring/summer. YES!!

I finally weighed myself this morning. Just like I thought, I have about 15lbs to lose so I am back to my weight goal of last year. I just have to get my overeating under control again. For some reason it is hard not to eat after work at 10:30 at night. I went for a walk yesterday after my visit with my grandparents. I will go for another walk today once it warms up a bit. Maybe a little leg work out on the weight machine too.

Hi gang. Didn't get the car today, maybe tomorrow. I'm so ticked I can't even eat or see straight. We were even on our way there. Thankfully we hadn't gotten far and we turned around. The guy didn't even have the nerve to call himself, he had someone else call.

On a brighter note, I did lose .6 again this week at TOPS. Not lighting any fires in the losing game but at least I'm losing.

Donna, how exciting. I know you both will be happy to have it home.

I have had a busy day with Bible study this morning, lunch with a friend and lots of little errands.

Hi team. Went to the gym after work yesterday and before work this morning. Had to go even earlier than normal as we had staff meeting at work too. TOPS tonight. Not sure how I'll do, maybe I'll stay the same.

Good news!! If everything goes right we will have the red & white '55 Crown in our possession tomorrow!! I have the proof of insurance dated for tomorrow and we'll go pick it up. I know DH is excited and I'll be just as glad to finally have it home.

Have some work to do so better go. Fire dangers are really high here too. We've had several wildfires in the area in the last few days.

I, too, had a busy weekend. This weekend was our major fundraiser for The Friends of the South Cumberland and the put on a three-day festival filled with hikes, lectures, demonstrations, art, and performances all nature related. As a volunteer, I was busy Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday afternoon with various functions. The weather cooperated and it was a glorious weekend.

However, I was so busy running from one function to another that I woke this morning thinking it was Tuesday and started getting ready for my Bible study group. Finally realized that it was Monday.

Morning team. What a weekend. Friday afternoon I rushed home to make the bbq for the Bingo on Saturday. Realized I didn't have enough ketchup, drat! Got that made and the car loaded. Got ourselves ready and headed to our DIL's to meet them before the concert. Ate at a nice little restaurant. We made our way to the school where the concert was. We got to see our DGD before the concert and after. The kids all did a great job. Friday was the first day that they had all been together as they were all from 48 different counties in PA. Some of the songs were quite difficult, (in my opinion), but the kids nailed them. Of course they got a standing ovation. On the way home, we stopped at 3 different convenience stores to get some ketchup. The first one was out, the second didn't even carry any condiments, and the third finally had it. I paid $4.65 for a large bottle. Wow! Used about 3/4 in the bbq. We got back home around 9pm. Not as late as I had thought but it was off to bed to get up early.

Saturday we were up a few minutes after 5am. Left the house about 7:15am and didn't return till 10:15pm. Took nearly 7500 steps! The Bingo was a HUGE success. We sold 175 tickets, many more for the bonus games, more yet for the raffle prizes and lots of food. Not too much left over. Numbers aren't in yet but I'm betting we cleared between 4 and 5 thousand. Club members pretty well ate or bought whatever was left. A good day.

Yesterday after church, we got a bite of lunch, then I went to the gym. I was there almost
2 1/2 hours.

Today it's back to work, then either the gym tonight, or if DH gets the call that our car is FINALLY done, we will go get it.

TTFN

As soon as I can get my lazy butt up and off the recliner I am going for a walk. Suppose to be in the 60s today. We are going to grill for supper with the family.

Hope everyone enjoys their Sunday!

Morning all! I'm working on moving more today. While the coffee was making, I walked up the driveway checking to see that it was clear from downed trees or limbs after the storm last night. My drive is 200 ft. so a good way to start the morning.

I'm also working on only eating what I truly want today and really tasting the food. Lots of water and lemon.

Today and tomorrow are also busy for me. We have our Friends of the South Cumberland fund raiser this weekend. It is a weekend filled with all things nature (lectures, hikes, demonstrations, music, art, etc.) and I am both a volunteer and going to many of the functions.

Morning team. Really busy today and tomorrow. I am off work at 1 today, but have to hurry home to make the bbq for tomorrow's Bingo, then DGD has a chorus concert this evening. Her mom texted me this morning and said that they are meeting at 4 to go grab a bite to eat before the concert if we wanted to go. It's an hour's drive for us and that would leave 2 hours to get the bbq done and the car loaded with what we can load until tomorrow morning. Don't know if we can make it that quick. We'll have to see.

All the non perishable stuff is in a pile in the kitchen ready to go. 8 pounds of hamburger is laid out on the counter so it can be thawed till I get home. DH will go get all the buns this morning. Tomorrow will be a long day as we have a meeting that evening.

TTFN and TGIF

Summer is my favorite too. No chance of ice or snow and I don't have to put a jacket or coat on. Anytime I can walk out the door with shorts, short sleeves, and sandals on, it's a great day. Hasn't happened yet this year.

Morning team. Have to make this quick as I have a teleconference at work this morning.

Got my running around done yesterday. Went to the gym first, then Wal-Mart, groceries, gas, and Panera. We went to Red Lobster for supper. Part of it is my lunch today. Too much salt though has me bloated. Will try and knock it out with extra water today.

I told the specialist that my arm was starting to feel better so he wouldnt even consider surgery but gave me some arm braces to wear while working and sleeping. He said it could take 6-`12 months to completely heal and I am near the 6 month mark.

Looks like the temps are going to warm up this weekend. Am hoping to get a walk in and not too much rain so I can do that.

Morning team. Another rainy day. DH will take me to work, then pick me up at 1pm and take me to the gym. We'll then get groceries, go to Walmart, and Panera. We have to get supplies for the Bingo food stand on Saturday, have a long list. We'll probably grab supper somewhere too. Maybe Red Lobster, haven't been there in a while and I have a coupon that is going to expire soon.

I lost .6 at TOPS last night. That makes it exactly 4 pounds to get to my goal and become a KOPS again. Not sure I totally want to be there before my cruise but if I am, I'll deal with it.

Trees are starting to bud and flowers are popping their sleepy heads out of the ground. Hopefully soon we will see blooms instead of plain limbs and branches.

Better run. TTFN

Morning team. Went to the gym again this morning. Work all day then TOPS and Women's Guild tonight. Twill be late when I get home tonight. Will go to the gym after work tomorrow. Then it's to the grocery store, Wal-Mart, and who knows where else to gather items for the Bingo on Saturday. Busy, busy!

Rainy today and probably the rest of this week. Not too much, but just that slow, drizzly kind. Good to keep the ground wet from all the brush fires around lately.

TTFN

Hope your appt. goes well and they can give you some better answers. It needs to get well.

Had a nice time visiting with family yesterday and lots of good food. I tried not to overeat too much but had to have some dessert.

Tomorrow I go to see the specialist for my arm. He will look over my MRI to see if they missed anything and maybe give me some different ideas to help my arm get better. I think the best advice I could get is to not use it at all. It is getting better but I think its taking longer than it should.

Looks like rain for most of the week. Hopefully next week will be better so I can get out for some walks.

Have a Great day!

Morning team. I trust everyone had a Happy Easter. The whole weekend turned out to be glorious weather wise. Rained a little Saturday morning but then it got sunny and stayed that way, albeit the wind, all weekend. Today is sunny again but it's to rain most of the week starting later today. Oh well, at least it will be above freezing.

Saturday's dinner went well and everyone enjoyed the food. We sat around and talked most of the afternoon. I went outside for about an hour and played ball with our granddaughter. She is learning to pitch and will probably be a pitcher on her softball team this year.

Easter morning we went to Sunrise Services. It lasted about 30 minutes, then they had a breakfast prepared for everyone to enjoy. We came back home until time for our own church, then went to it. After church, we went to eat then DH and I went to a movie. We saw Fast and Furious 7. What an awesome movie. I highly recommend it if you like fast cars and a lot of action. Turns out it was the top grossing movie for the weekend.

After the movie, we came back home, we did the church deposit, ate a little something for supper, then chilled. Now I'm at work and DH went down to check on the car. They were supposed to finish it on Saturday. We'll see.

TTFN

I can't believe I am so far behind. The days and months are passing by too fast. I have posted the new month weight challenge -- just six days late.

But today, I'm starting back on my diet and back to decluttering! I have been talking about both, but not doing anything to get where I want to be. So, starting, re-starting. Whatever.

We have beautiful sunshine here today and I have the day at home to begin on both projects.

What's happening with everyone else?

Morning team. Good Friday, schools are closed but the bank is open so off to work I go. Sure hope the coworkers are well enough to come back to work today.

Tonight we will go to Good Friday services. It's always such a sad service but we all know He had to suffer and die so that He could be resurrected and live so we can ALL have Eternal Life!

DH will have to have supper done and eaten as I won't get home till about 6:15 and services start at 7. I will eat on the way.

Planning on hitting the gym tomorrow morning, then home to prepare dinner. I think we'll eat around noon, then we can sit around and talk and have a good time.

TTFN and TGIF

Hey team. Headed to the gym this morning so that's why I'm just getting on. Have stuff to do at the house this evening to get ready for Easter dinner on Saturday. DH has a meeting this evening so we won't be going to Maundy Thursday services tonight.

2 coworkers have gone home sick today. Sure don't want anything that's going around.

It's a beautiful, sunny day today. Sure wish I could be outside enjoying it. Quite frosty this morning but has warmed up nicely.

Yesterday I did not get to the gym as it was too late once I got all my errands done. Had to be at a meeting early evening so I ran out of time.

TTFN

After several days of running around, I'm staying home today to catch up on much needed chores and to pot up a couple of the plants I bought yesterday.

Excellent breakfast burrito of sauted sweet potato, onion, zucchini and egg scramble.

Morning team. No gym this morning, too sore. Legs, arms and back hurt. Maybe this afternoon , after my hair cut, groceries, Walmart and Panera. If I have a few minutes I might pop in for a quick workout before heading home to supper. Have a meeting, that I forgot about until DH reminded me last night, to attend at 6pm.

Got 3 Easter Baskets done last night, plus my coupons clipped and list ready. We wound up with about 2 inches I guess of snow. Others in towns not too far away got over 6! Crazy weather. I need and long for warmth and sunshine for more than one day at a time. Ground, roofs, trees are all white but the road looks good.

Gotta run. TTFN!

I am loving the sunshine and warmer temperatures. I can deal with the lower temperatures at night if I have more warmth and Sun during the day.

I had Bible study this morning and garden club this afternoon. What a lovely day. Tomorrow, after an early morning errand, a friend and I are going to drive to some of the nurseries to look at plants. I want some herbs to get started and will see what I can use on the back screened in porch and big ferns for the front porch.

Hey team. Went to the gym again this morning. Awesome workout. Could have gone more but had to quit to shower and go to work.

TOPS is cancelled for tonight as we have yet another round of SNOW moving through. They are calling for 2 to 4 inches in the valleys, which is where I live, with the possibility of black ice tonight so we thought it best to cancel. Hope this soon ends. Figures too, my scale showed a loss.

Got my fridge cleaned out last night. Man at the stuff I threw out. Fridge looks a lot better! Tonight I may tackle Easter Baskets. Might! LOL I also need to get my grocery list together and coupons clipped and sorted cause I'll be going for food tomorrow after work.

TTFN

Supposed to be in the 50s tomorrow, 60s Thursday, back to the 50s Friday and 40s Saturday. Enough of this back and forth stuff too. Just get warm and stay there. You will NEVER hear me complain about it being too hot.

MNGIRL73, it always amazes me that someplace as far North as you are can have the same temperatures as I have here in what I consider the South! But I do see the dips in the weather shows. We're all ready for Spring.

We are finally warming up here in MN. Had a high of 55 today. Should be making its way to PA soon.

I was so busy this last weekend with stuff for my daughters baby shower. My aunt couldnt come to help because she was sick so it was just me & mom. We got it all done and it was a great baby shower. Now is the waiting game for a couple months.

Once all this leftover food from the shower is gone, I will get back on track. It sounds like the temps will be nice enough to get a couple walks in this week too.

emoticon I'm getting the e-mail again! Now to get me back on track. The last 12 months have been one trial after another and the cold and dreary Winter was way too long. I'm ready for Spring and brighter days.

Where is everyone? Check in everyone.

Morning team. Had to get my gym on before work today as I have lots to do to get ready for Easter at home in the evenings.

Saturday did not turn out the way I planned. We had about an inch of snow. I started to go to the gym and got to the mountain where there was a cop blocking the road. The mountain was closed because on an accident. I thought about working my way around another way but decided to just go back home.

Work day at the campground was cancelled too so we have to wait and see which lot we get. Course the next work day is when DH and I are helping one of our tractor clubs with a meat Bingo, where the prizes are all meat to go in your freezer. Not sure how we're going to work that in now. DH may have to leave the Bingo and come back to choose a lot.

Eggs are all made. Course DH bought extra. Good thing I don't eat them. Yuck! Not a fan of PB.

I did get to the gym later in the afternoon and before we went to supper. Got there again yesterday afternoon after another meeting and lunch. Busy weekend leading into a busy week.

TTFN

Hopefully you figured it out Earnie. Mmmm, Gumbo. Could eat some for lunch if I had it. Can you email me some? LOL

I think I have solved the problem of not getting e-mail notices. We will know for sure tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed.

And, I have started a new effort to lose some weight and exercise more. This Winter has been a real downer!

We are having what I hope is the last cool spell. Chilly at night and warmer during the days for the next week.

I'm going to a friend's house after lunch to help her (and learn how) make gumbo the Louisiana way. We are going to take some to sick friends and then eat dinner at her house.

Morning team. DH took me to the gym last night then we went to Perkins for a bite to eat. Didn't get home till 8pm. Good workout though.

DH got the ceiling tile put up for our friend. Today he is going down to work on the car. I will be on my own for supper tonight.

Going to the gym first thing tomorrow morning, then we have a full day ahead of us.

It got into the 50s here yesterday, only in the 30s today with some light rain and maybe flurries later. Go away already!!

TTFN and TGIF!

Morning team. Got all my stops done yesterday, even went to Walmart twice, as I picked up chicken for supper. I had thought about getting up and going to the gym before work this morning but was just too tired, so DH has offered to take me to work, then pick me up, take me to the gym, then we'll get supper somewhere. He's such a nice guy.

Rainy yesterday until about 5pm, then the sun came out. Cloudy today but supposed to get into the 50s. Earlier this week they said it was to be sunny today, guess that changed.

DH is going to fix some ceiling tiles at a friend's house today. Her roof leaked this winter and some got wet. DH fixed the problem around the chimney where it was leaking and it hasn't leaked since so now it's time to fix the inside.

Better go pack my bag for the gym and finish getting ready for work. TTFN

Morning team. Lost 0.2 at TOPS last night. Better than what my scale had on it yesterday. Whew!! I guess it paid off to go to the gym in the morning.

Working today then heading to the gym, Walmart, groceries, and Panera for some bagels. I only eat 1/2 of one at a time as they are big. I like the whole grain and cinnamon raisin.

Got a call last night that we are getting a permanent camping spot at a private campground not far from us. They have a work day Saturday and after lunch they will hand out the spots. That will make 4 things I have to do Saturday. First I'll go to the gym, then come home and get DH so we can help make PB eggs for Women's Guild at church. We won't be finished there before we have to go to the campground. I suppose if it doesn't take too long, we'll go back to help clean up from the egg making. Then we have a ham supper to go to Saturday night. Dang, I'm tired already! LOL

Sunday we'll have church then a meeting with our Good Sam camping group to set up camping for the season. Our first outing is in April. Eeek!

TTFN

Morning all! I'm loving this warmer weather and sunshine. We have one (I hope last) cold snap coming this weekend, but the last couple of days have been lovely. I believe everyone is ready for this Winter to be over.

I am working hard to get some walking in every day and adding some weight exercises. Yesterday was a full day of shopping (lots of walking), dental cleaning appointment, and visiting with my niece. Today, I'm home, but need to make dinner for two families who are dealing with medical issues.

Morning team. Went to the gym this morning as I couldn't get there last night. Had a good workout, shower, and now at work. It's almost lunchtime for me, as I'm the first one to go.

TOPS tonight, scale did not look good this morning. Have no idea why. Humpf!! Maybe the workout will counteract it and I at least stay the same.

Work has been exceptionally slow today. Other than night deposits, I've had 1 live customer.

Cloudy today but no rain or flurries. They said we might see some south of I-80 but we didn't. Suits me!

Better go. TTFN

I dont think I have stepped on the scale in about a week. I am afraid to see how much I have gained. I need to get back on track.
No walking outside for me right now. We just got about 6 inches of snow last night. Hoping it will melt by this weekend for my daughters baby shower. It is suppose to get to 50 by Sunday, if they dont change it by then.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Morning team. I'm so mad at my Spark Tracker right now I'm tempted to go get a FitBit. I worked out for nearly 2 hours at the gym yesterday and it has only tracked my steps for yesterday morning, a mere 176 steps. It uploaded todays, but yesterdays is not there. Why do I have it if it's not going to work the way it's supposed to?

I was going to go to the gym this morning but my legs and hips were so sore last night I had trouble getting to sleep. They are better today except for going up and down stairs. Ouch. I'll definitely go tomorrow morning. I can't go tonight as I have a meeting at 6pm and don't get off work till 4:45, then home to eat a bite of supper.

Church and the brunch yesterday were good. DH's trip to work on the car not good. The guy that was supposed to help him didn't show up and one of his employees said he was sick. He never picked up the phone to call and it is a 60+ mile trip one way for my husband. Needless to say he was very mad and when I got home and found out, so was I. They are supposed to work on it this week as they know we are bringing it home, done or not!!

Better go. TTFN

Morning team. DH is off to help work on the '55 Crown that has been in the works for 3 years. It is almost done and we WILL be bringing it home soon, finished or not!! I am going to church soon where we have a Lent Brunch afterwards. Then it's off to the gym. I went yesterday after work and it was one of those days where I could have stayed there all day I was that into it. Sadly I could not as DH wanted to wash the car and I had a couple things I wanted to do at home. We then went out to eat.

It got quite nice yesterday and almost all the snow is gone. Still patches where the sun didn't hit soon enough or it was piled up. Mountains still have quite a bit though. Today it is to only be in the 30s. Yesterday was near 50!!

Gotta run. TTFN

Good going Trying. Probably what I need to do too.

Morning team. Working today until noon then going to the gym. Need a good workout.

We figured we got about 3 inches of snow yesterday. That's 3 inches too much if you ask me. Supposed to be near 50 today so hopefully all or most of it will be GONE!!

Good Morning team. Gosh I guess it's been since Tuesday since I posted. Lost .4 at TOPS Tuesday night. It's a start.

First day of spring and everything is white. Yep, snow is on the ground and falling. Depending on who you listen to, we are to get 1 to 3 or 3 to 6. Big difference. I'm hoping for the 1 to 3.

Went to the gym Wednesday and again yesterday morning before work. I was off work Wednesday. DH and I then went shopping. Him to Harbor Freight and me looking for a good pair of shoes with cushion for jogging as I'm in the "Couch to 5K" group. Not planning on a 5K but just wanted more cardio.

Better run. TTFN and TGIF. Happy Spring!!! Wherever it is. LOL

Hi team. Glad to hear you didn't have to spend to much on a tire. I'm also glad you didn't get hurt. God was riding with you. :-)

Hi team and Happy St. Patty's Day. The car is at the shop. They called at lunchtime and said it was done. It's going to cost $89.99, of which we will get $67 back because of road hazard damage. When we bought the tires from tirerack.com, it came with free road hazard insurance. Halleluiah! We had never gotten the road hazard before when we bought tires cause it was always an extra expense. So glad they include it in the price now.

Cloudy with peeks of sun and windy today. Started out near 50 this morning but now temps are dropping. Supposed to be back into the 30s for a high tomorrow. Yuck!

Better run. TTFN

Morning team. What a weekend. Saturday morning I was driving to the gym. It was raining and foggy as I was going down the mountain. Car headlights coming the opposite direction temporarily blinded me and I hit a rock. I had been watching for them as I knew there would probably be some. I Ran right over it with my right front tire. It seemed fine, drove it to the gym and home. We had a meeting that night and it seemed fine then too. No lights came on indicating low tire pressure or anything. Sunday morning we backed it out to go to church and it was flat. DH pumped it up and we took it to church. He wanted to see what it would do since I would need it to go to work. Till we got out of church, the low pressure light came back on so we took it home. We got in the truck and we went to a couple of stores, then Texas Roadhouse to eat, then I went to the gym. I'd had a headache off and on all day and at the gym it got worse. I was barely there an hour. Went home, got things put away, church offering done, computer work done, then I sat with a cup of coffee and watched the race. Seemed to ease by evening. I've never had a migraine and I don't think that's what this was, but I just didn't feel my best. Guess I'll be driving the truck to work today. Hate driving the truck.

Say a little prayer for my DIL in Florida and the family. Her grandmother has been in the hospital a couple weeks now and is in her final days. She went in with pneumonia and has deteriorated. She now can barely breathe and refuses to be intubated. She is ready to go home to the Lord. She has outlived 2 children and her husband and is in her 90s. DIL and oldest grandson are flying to Ohio to be with her. Pray to end her suffering and they have a safe trip.

TTFN

I was able to get about 3 walks in this last week. Friday I had a day off work so I walked there to get my check.

We did a lot of eating out since my cousin came to town on Friday. My birthday was saturday and we celebrated by going out to eat and I went to a concert with my friends. I didnt even step on the scale this weekend. I will start again tomorrow.
