Morning team. Went to the gym this morning again. Warmed up, then did the 30 minute circuit, then more cardio. About an hour and 10 minutes of workout.

Gained another .8 at TOPS last night on top of the 3.8 I gained last week. Next week WILL be different and I WILL show a loss. Hopefully a good loss!

Haircut after work today then over to help at the show. There is a Yoli meeting tonight that I am going to try and attend to learn more about everything. They're also giving away a transformation kit. That would be nice to win.

TTFN

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I enjoyed every day since I was able to be with the grandson and dreaded going back to work today but it wasnt as bad as I thought it would be. I have yet to get back on track but I will go for a walk tomorrow since it is suppose to be warm and not raining.

I was invited to a private home for the dedication of a stone and iron gate to commemorate an Infantry Regiment. There was a small group of about 50 people,with remarks from several service men, the president of the Tennessee DAR, prayers, and Taps. Refreshments were served later.

Hey team. Happy Memorial Day, a day late. We had a great weekend camping. Got home about 3pm yesterday, then went up to the grocery store for a few things. Won't get there anytime the rest of this week. Too busy!

I started on a new program today called Yoli. It is all natural with no artificial colors or sweeteners. You do days 1, 2, 4 & 6 as protein days, and 3, 5 & 7 as meal days. You do this for 3 weeks then you can have a cheat day, which will reset your body so it tricks the metabolism. You do shakes, protein foods, and energy drinks on the protein days, and sensible meals on the meal days. Sure hope it jump starts something.

This week we have an Antique Machinery show that we help at so will be between there and work all week. DH took the camper over this morning and we will start staying on Thursday eve.

TOPS tonight.

TTFN

Morning team. Well work has been fun so far. We had a "hot" smell yesterday afternoon but couldn't trace where it was coming from. Today when we came in, it was a lot stronger so I emailed a coworker that works with the EMS and she called someone from the fire department come check it out. They traced it to a heat pump. They shut it down and brought in a ventilator to air the bank out. Now I'm waiting for the heating expert to come and check it out. Sure hope he gets here before we close or my Holiday weekend is going to get shorter.

I got invited to a surprise "Sip and Dip" for a coworker's birthday last night. What it was is, you do a painting on canvas as you have wine and snacks. I only had a little wine as I knew I had to drive home but the painting came out decent. We got to keep them. It was great fun and the coworker was very surprised.

Better go. TTFN and have a great Memorial Day. Don't forget to thank our Military.

Congrats on the new grandson!

I have been busy staying at the hospital since Thursday morning. My daughter had her son(my 1st grandchild) late Thursday night. I stayed overnight at the hospital to help her. I will bring them home on Saturday. He was 8 days early but is doing good and is such a cutie.

Hey team. DH got the yard mowed yesterday afternoon. Camper is ready to go. Now if it will just get warm. Can you believe they are calling for frost tonight? This needs to stop!!

This has got to be one of the slowest Fridays ever! I feel another cup of coffee coming on.

Cold here too! This must be Blackberry Winter. I'm doing pretty well today. I got a start on cleaning out a closet in the library/office. Just need to finish going through one box of things and throwing away a few clothes hanging there.

Hey team. Hasn't been that great of a day weather wise. Gray and rainy and highs only in the upper 50s. What? They weren't predicting any of that earlier this week. Go figure.

Tuesday night at TOPS was not good as suspected. I gained 3.8 since last weigh in 3 weeks ago and before the cruise. Yikes! I will get it back off but it will probably take more than 3 weeks. Why is that?

Wednesday I had off, but did some errands for church and myself. I also went to the gym but didn't do much of a workout as something flew into my right hip and lower back yesterday morning. Took 2 Aleve and it eased, but didn't go away. Took another Aleve last night at supper and today it's fine. Have no idea what it was but I'm glad it's gone. Maybe me laying on the hydro-massage bed at the gym for 10 minutes helped alleviate it. It sure felt good!

We got the camper back to the campsite yesterday afternoon and slept there overnight along with another couple. DH will bring the camper back out today in preparation of taking it to our next outing tomorrow. He will leave sometime late tomorrow afternoon and I will join him after work Saturday. Can't wait.

Got a new smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector. We had a combo unit before, but now it was cheaper to buy a combo pack with 2 separate units than it was to buy the single unit. Doesn't make sense to me but whatever works I guess. DH got them installed, and we also hooked up the replacement satellite receiver. Success on both.

TTFN

Thanks team, new detectors bought and installed.

DONNA- stay safe and get a working smoke detector right away. We know 3 people who have had total house fires in the last 2 years!

God's love to you Earnie!

Day 14 of my 2 nd 21 day streak of NO binge eating!
Yesterday I had a test when the youth were here but I stayed strong (with God's help) and stayed on track with my eating! Rewarded with .5 weight removal this morning! Today I had to rest all day-ugh....but I am working hard on a good attitude about it! lol

Morning team. Went to the gym this morning but should have just stayed home. Wasn't into it. Legs felt like lead. Not sure why, but I did 18 on the treadmill, some arm/weight exercises, some ab work, then 18 on the stair stepper. I forced myself since I was there but didn't feel like it. Now I'm at work and just want to go back to bed. Maybe it's because since 12:45 the smoke detector kept beeping like the batteries were low. Every few seconds I'd hear beep! DH put new batteries in but it's still beeping so he put it outside. He read that if it gets some fresh air that it will stop. Well when I left at 5:30 this morning, it was still beeping. Maybe the batteries aren't any good or maybe we need to replace the smoke detector. It is a few years old. All I know is that it WON'T keep me awake tonight.

Have a long day today with TOPS and consistory meetings tonight. Right after work I'll go vote too. They changed our polling place and now it's basically across the road from work.

TTFN

I have come to the conclusion that I am going to have to use SHEER GRIT and DETERMINATION to lose this weight. And it is not going to be easy. Cravings are going to be white knuckled. Meals planned and no extras. Water and keeping busy. emoticon

Hey team. The weekend was great, camping was wonderful. 2 other ladies and I went for a walk. I was going to go up to the gym, but went for the walk instead. Had a lot of laughs, ate a lot of food, but somehow I lost over the weekend. Lets just hope it stays off for TOPS tomorrow.

Went to the gym this morning. Plan on going tomorrow morning too, then I'll vote, go to TOPS, then church consistory meeting. This is on top of getting the camper ready again as we are taking it back to our campsite for a couple of nights. Even though I have to work, it's not far, only 1.5 miles from home. DH will bring it back out on Friday morning, then travel to another place Friday afternoon for the Memorial Weekend. I have to work Saturday so I won't go down till Saturday afternoon. Busy week for sure!!

Construction has begun on the inside here at the bank. They will break ground on the new building some time next week after they get one more permit. I think that once that happens, things will move fast as we're supposed to be in it by July. I personally don't see that happening but we'll see.

I hear coffee calling. TTFN

Hubby was ok with the car damage. It really doesn't look too bad. I got the side reflector and there's a good scratch toward the bottom and that's it. Could have been worse.

It seems like many people are struggling now. I know I am. I'm up and down the same few pounds, but still up ten pounds more than I need to be. I start out strong in the morning and lose motivation as the day goes on. I need a way to handle the afternoons and early evenings better.

It is hazy and looks like rain showers this morning. I'm ready for Church. Hope I get there before it starts.

Hi Everyone and welcome Tema!
I am on Day 9 of my 21 day commitment to be binge free! I already completed a 30 day challenge!!

at TOPS this week I removed 1.8 lbs of weight! I have lost 10.4 lbs since my birthday on March 26th of this year. My goal is to be REINSTATED as a KOP this year, 2015!

Like you all, I have my share of physical issues. I am recuperating after my 2 nd knee replacement on the the same knee! I was doing great until I fell down the stairs in Dec.! I am pushing through the pain and am now walking, riding my new trike/bike when I am able, and I have climbed the big hill twice this week! WHOO HOO! I know in a time the exercise will make my leg stronger. I am committed to meet my goals THIS YEAR!


Move More!

Donna, sorry about the Boo Boo especially since you didn't get a good shot. Hope there won't bee too much damage.

I spent the whole day with my garden club on an outing to an iris and peony nursery about two hours away from here. We had lunch and plenty of time to walk their gardens and purchase plants. I cam home with iris especially for shade areas. So I need to get them in the ground tomorrow. We are also getting some much needed light rain showers this evening. That will make digging tomorrow easier (still not easy).

Hi team. Finished getting the camper ready last night and the last minute things this morning. So all ready to go if only it were 6pm.

I did a big boo boo this morning. I saw the Eagle perched in a tree and I was going real slow to try and get a picture with my cell phone and got just a little too close to the guardrail. It didn't do too much, but it got a side reflector light and a good (or bad) scrape towards the bottom of the fender. I'll have to tell hubby tonight. Even worse, I didn't get a picture of the Eagle for the trouble either. DRAT!

It didn't go much better at work this morning either. Kept making mistakes and dropping things. Threatened to go home. Coworkers said no. Sure hope the rest of the day goes better.

DH will take the camper back sometime this afternoon, then I'll join him after work. I'm off tomorrow. WooHoo!

TTFN and TGIF!

Hey team. Got off to the gym again this morning. Had a really good workout. Forgot to pack my shoes for work so had to call hubby to bring them to me, couldn't wear my gym shoes all day as it's against dress code.

Got my church report done last night. Didn't get the camper done though. I have to do that tonight as DH will take it back tomorrow while I'm at work. It's only like 3 miles where we're going but still like to get it done before it goes.

Put my veggie plants in the shed overnight as they were calling for some areas to get some frost. I don't think we did but thought we'd better be safe than sorry. Nice and sunny out there right now, still a little breeze though.

TTFN

Morning team. It turned cold overnight. A stiff wind and only 50 degrees makes it feel really cold. Some areas may have a touch of frost tonight as it's to get down into the 30s. What? A far cry from where it was last week. Sure wish the weather would make up it's mind.

After work today I'm hitting the gym again, then groceries. Have to get the camper ready to go and a church report done for next week. Haven't even started it yet but it shouldn't take too long. I also need to upload pictures from my phone and camera I took on the cruise. Don't know if I will get to do that today or not. We'll see.

Today I start getting back on track from my eating. It's been out of control since before the cruise and I can feel every bit of the 5 pounds I gained (according to my scale). I can feel it in my clothes and when I'm at the gym and I don't like it one bit.

TTFN

Thanks Earnie. Hope you feel better.

Welcome home. Glad you had a great time. I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted. The days have been busy. Now my allergies have kicked in with runny nose and stopped up sinuses.

Morning team. I'm back. Actually got back Sunday afternoon but haven't had time to post anything. I haven't even gone through the 300+ emails. Between catching up on laundry, mail, exercise at the gym and work, just haven't had time to sit at the computer at home and go through them.

We absolutely loved the cruise! We want to do it again. The weather for the most part was fabulous. A couple of showers on Friday during our glass bottom boat ride, which produced 10 or 12 water spouts, but we weren't close to them. It just made it exciting to see.

We went on several tours at the different islands and I went snorkeling with some sting rays as another tour. It was fun. Cross snorkeling off my bucket list as well as taking the cruise. The food was great. A lot of different things that I probably wouldn't have spent money on to try, if I'd have been at a restaurant in case I didn't like it. But I had some kind of seafood every day. And the desserts were scrumptious. I gained like 5 pounds. Ugh! Now to work to get it off.

I'll try and do a blog in the near future about it. I took many pictures and still have to upload those as well.

No TOPS tonight for me as the bank is going out to eat to say a final goodbye to a coworker that left. We are going to Applebee's right after work.

TTFN

I love the sunshine and warm weather too. My theory is that I would rather be hot than cold.

Yep, we're in the same place. I just can't get my head settled to do what I know I need to do. And I sometimes go out onto the back deck and sit on a lounge chair in the Sun just to soak in the heat.

Earnie- We sound so much alike. I, too, have been depressed off and on. Still cant seem to get my night time eating under control. I wont even step on the scale and have not been counting my calories at all. For some reason, I just cant get in that mind set that I was in last year to lose my weight. It probably has to do with my arm problems. It is getting better but it is sure taking its time.

Going for walks in the warm sunshine and listening to my music does put me in a better mood. Sometimes if I dont have time for a walk, I will just sit on the back steps and enjoy the warmth and singing of the birds.

I have had a rough few days. No energy. No desire to move. Depressed. Not sleeping. I'm just putting one foot in front of the other and hoping this goes away soon. I did discover that sometimes you just have to try "something" whether or not you know what you are doing!!! It will either work or not. LOL

Morning team. 2 more days till we leave on our cruise. Really getting excited now, and a little nervous, but it's all good. We sail out of Baltimore on Sunday afternoon. Everyone is meeting here and our driver is picking us up and we'll be on the road hopefully by 7:30. Leaving really early in case of traffic, riots, potty breaks and a bite of lunch. I'd rather be there early than late, and we can get on the boat as early as 1:30. During all week next week, I will not be posting and probably not logging in either as you have to pay to use the computers on board and I'm not paying international fees on my phone either. It will be on airplane mode all week. Only taking it so that I can take pictures and in case of an emergency. I think DH is leaving his at home.

Have not gotten to the gym since Wednesday. Yesterday I had some training at another branch. Had to leave early to get there by 8:30, then we ate lunch and traveled back. Got to my branch at 12:30pm and finished the day.

Refrigerator is looking mighty bare so we are eating out tonight and tomorrow night. We will have minimal food left and will give the couple of eggs that will be left to our niece who is watching after the house and watering plants while we're gone. She lives 1/2 mile from us and drives by the house every day so it's not a problem or out of her way.

A little foggy today but it's to be in the 60s with maybe a stray shower. Of course it's to be in the mid to high 70s while we are away. That's ok as long as it is still that when we return on Mother's Day.

TTFN and TGIF!

The last few days have been busy. Now I hope the next few will be quiet. I did go to see a beautifully done movie last night. I went with friends to see Ida. It was an foreign film with subtitles, but was fantastic.

I need to get some walking in today.

Havent posted for a while. I have been stressing out about things at work and at my boyfriends work so my late night eating hasnt been too good. I start out the day good and can fast for 12 hours and keep my calories low until I get home after work. I am normally not in a good mood after work so I eat. I am going for walks now that it is nicer out but I need to lose about 15 lbs to reach my goal that I was at last summer.

Hey team. Haven't gotten on here in a few days. Been busy camping, at the gym, packing, working, etc., etc.

Camping last weekend was good but short. I was there all of 24 hours and we all packed up and left for home. Some went out to eat but we did not, had too much to do. Got home and camper unloaded then went to the gym. Came home and started putting things together for vacation. Got the suitcases mostly packed, but I think I'm downsizing them as there is room in both so I'm going to put DH's in a smaller one, then move my stuff into his.

Yesterday morning I hit the gym again before work, which turned out to be a very hectic day. Besides everything else, I opened 2 new accounts and did paperwork up to change the name on 2 other accounts, all in the course of an hour. A coworker helped me get some of it done. If I hadn't had her help, I wouldn't have gotten done before we closed. She's a good help.

Today I again hit the gym before work, which was a continuation of yesterday. I think full moon is coming. It's been crazy with weird stuff. It has finally settled down some. TOPS tonight. Sure hope the scale is ok this week.

Tomorrow I have off. Getting my hair cut, then the gym and a few items from Wal-Mart and Dollar Tree. Mostly vitamins at Wal-Mart. I need some more things for 2 Jarod Boxes from the Dollar Tree. Best place I know of to get a lot of small items to go into the boxes for not much money. Also picking up some hanging baskets that I and a coworker had ordered as a daycare fundraiser from a DGD. Should be interesting getting 4 baskets into the trunk. LOL

TTFN

Had fun with my neighbors last night. They are such sweet people. I have been busy all last week and am now looking forward to a very quiet week. I want to catch up on some projects, some reading, and get out and photograph.

Morning team. Hit the gym before work this morning. It was quite chilly with just a touch of frost in places. Heading to the camper as soon as I get out of work. DH is already there with the rest of the gang. There will probably be close to 20 people there for supper tonight.

Yesterday I had to be at work early for a teleconference. Why they had to have it on the longest day of work in the week is beyond me. Made for a long day. Found out that they are starting construction on the new bank building on Monday, and, the Medical Center that bought our building we are in now is also starting. How this is going to work I don't know. Some engineer figured out that our customers, some of them disabled and elderly, can cross the driveway at drive thru and not get hit. Right! We'll see. Book smart and common sense dumb. We are to be in the new building in 3 months.

8 days till the cruise. Getting excited!

Another morning of beautiful sunshine before the storms move in tomorrow. I'm going to a student art presentation this morning, getting a pedicure early afternoon, and having neighbors in for dinner this evening so have a busy day ahead.

Hey team. Guess what? It's been snowing here for most of the day. Can you believe it? It's the end of April for goodness sake!! Enough with it already.

TOPS was not good for anyone except 2 people. We think there was something off with the scale as most everyone lost a lot the week before. I'm always the first one there and I get everything out so I step on the scale and it had me losing over 5 pounds with my shoes and regular clothes on. There was no way. So I kept moving it and making sure it was level and it kept saying the same thing. So when others arrived I told them what was going on and we got it to where we "think" was right but we don't know for sure. But anyways, I gained .8, and like I said, everyone except 2 people also gained. Hope it gets right soon.

Got to the gym yesterday and this morning. DH is with friends at a car show today while I'm at work. Darn it! He'll probably be frozen when he gets home tonight. Poor guy.

TTFN

Vent all you want, we'll listen and sympathize. I work at a bank and twice this week a customer has brought in pastries (Monday) and donuts (today). I can leave it alone until in the afternoon. I get sick if I eat anything sweet before mid-afternoon. As long as I don't start, I'm alright, but once I have something look out.

We had some winter weather again today. A little bit of sleet and snow. I knew people would be complaining but I have learned to just accept it after all we had snow in the first week of May a couple years ago. Its kind of hard to accept after it had been in the 60s last week though.

Hope you have good weather for camping this weekend. Friends of ours got their first seasonal camping site this year. I am hoping we will get out there. We havent been camping for awhile.

I feel like I am a broken record but I really need to get back on track. I just cant seem to stick to my exercising and eating better. I know the weather isnt helping but I think another reason is that I am still dealing with my tennis elbow. It gets me down that I cant exercise like I want to. The people at work dont help either. They act like I put myself on restrictions so I dont have to hardly work and am trying to make their life miserable by helping me. Sorry. Just had to vent. After dealing with this for 6 months just gets frustrating.

Morning team. Went to the gym this morning. My knee is feeling fine and no pain when I exercised either so taking a day off was a good thing. Have TOPS tonight. I was surprised when I stepped on the scale this morning, it looks much better than it did yesterday. We shall see if the TOPS scale agrees tonight.

Went home after work yesterday and couldn't find DH. I thought maybe he was over at his brother's, who just lives across the field from us. His truck was in the garage so I knew he hadn't gone far. Found him in the camper cleaning. He was just about done, all I had to do after supper was do the windows, put some things in it and make the bed, which he helped with all that too. Now I have to get food in it and do the floor and it's ready for this weekend. Yahoo! I have such a good hubby.

Got the online check-in done last night too and printed off. Now I need to figure out what I'm packing yet. Better soon figure it out. LOL

Better go. TTFN

What a night and morning. Storms throughout the night with torrential rain, lightening, and thunder. Power is still off and my generator did not come on so I had to go out this morning and flip the switch to manual and it came on immediately. Must be the relay. I will have to have a service call. At least I have coffee, lights, and internet! emoticon

Morning team. After church I did get to the gym but somewhere I have tweaked my knee and I took it easy on the machines. Seems ok to just walk but using the elliptical and stair stepper wasn't good. I found that peddling the elliptical backwards was actually better then going forward. Weird I know but whatever works, right? I'm taking a break from the gym today to let it rest. Have enough to do at home anyways. Already this morning I've taken the flannel sheets off the bed and put spring/summer sheets on. I put a new, light weight quilt on too. Also ran an update on the computer and changed the battery on my Spark Tracker.

Just saw an Eagle fly past.

Tonight I need to do the online check-in for the cruise. Have to get the passports out of the safety deposit box at work first or I would do it now. Need to call the driver we hired too and go over some details. Also need to get into the camper and get it ready for this weekend. Will be busy this week. I need a vacation!!

TTFN

Earnie-It's a '55 Ford Crown Victoria. Not many around and hubby's dream car. Now mine would be a '65 or '66 Ford Mustang Convertible. Red preferably. Thanks

Morning team . Finally got her home. Headed to church soon, then the gym, Lowe's, Walmart, then meeting family at Red Lobster to finalize things for the cruise. Can't believe that 2 weeks from today we leave.

If something is holding us back, today is the day to begin to push back. Today is always the best day to end the fears and begin being the best you.

Morning team. Got to the gym this morning, now I'm at work till noon. DH took me to the gym and work and will pick me up, then we will travel about an hour to pick up the '55 Crown. It had better be ready. The guy called DH yesterday and said it was done. We'll see.

It's a bright, sunny morning and the fire danger is very high today. Supposed to be in the low 70s, a stiff breeze and dry air. All prime ingredients for fire. The grass is really turning green and growing. We'll soon start seeing lawn mowers come out. Better than snow shovels! LOL

Tomorrow we will go to church, then I'll probably go to the gym. We need to go to Lowe's to pick up a couple of cabinet knobs, then we are meeting family and friends at 4:30 at Red Lobster to finalize plans for the cruise. 2 more weeks!!

TTFN and have a great weekend.

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!!

TTFN

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!
