The first wave of company has departed so I have a bit of time to myself and to explore this area before the next group arrives. A beautiful day her. Still cold, but I plan to get a walk on the beach shortly.

Morning team. Heading to work in a little bit then hitting the gym. I need a good workout!!

The weather has been very strange this winter, but it has saved on heating bills. Gas prices finally being down below $2 a gallon doesn't hurt either. Cheapest I've seen in my area is $1.89, but I know it's lower elsewhere. Wonder what will be the cheapest price we see while traveling to Florida next Friday? Only time will tell.

Better run

Love good seafood!!

Hi team. I've been much better today for whatever reason. No crying so far. Halleluiah! No matter how I feel the rest of the weekend, I'm going to say something to my doctor on Monday. I really don't like feeling that way.

In and out clouds and sun with some snow flurries and showers off and on. Cold and windy. This weekend is to be nice. 40s and sunny!!

Have to work tomorrow, then I think I'm going to the gym for a while. Need to start gathering things and packing as we leave next Friday.

Taxes got to the tax man yesterday. I highly doubt they will get done before we leave.

TTFN and TGIF

Hi team. Started out sunny but now cloudy again. In the upper 30s today. A little windy today too.

Not feeling any better today. Cried again this morning. Every day this week I've cried for whatever reason. So glad I go to the doctor Monday so I can address this with her.

I did go to the gym this morning. Managed to get in some sort of workout, although I didn't push myself. I really need to get out of this mood I've been in.

TTFN

And sorry I haven't check in lately.j I am now on the coast of Alabama, on the beach and will be here for a while. Chilling, relaxing, renewing, gathering my spirit! A much needed time. I will check in as often as I can from here on out.

Hey team. Guess I was away a little too long again. Sorry. Had sort of a melt down at work yesterday and it drained my energy and I skipped TOPS last night. I've been weepy lately and really snappy where I go from fine to biting someone's head off at a moment's notice. I think it might be my Vitamin D levels might be low again since there hasn't been much sunshine, and when there is, I'm at work and can't get outside till the sun is going down again. Hate this time of year. I have a doctor's appointment on Monday so I'll mention it to her and see what she says.

We are leaving for Florida on the 12th so that will help too. We'll be returning home on the 22nd so it will give us 10 days of warmer weather and hopefully abundant sunshine.

Rain and clouds all day today. I had the day off so after getting my hair cut, I went to the Sherriff's office and got my "license to carry" permit. Then DH and I went to a new discount grocery store. It was really nice. Spent $73 but came out with quite a few bags of groceries. We are well pleased with it.

Better go. TTFN

Thanks for the prayers everyone

Donna

Hey team. I must have been really tired last night cause I fell asleep on the couch shortly after 8, woke up about 9:20, went to bed and slept till time to get up. Still could have stayed in bed but had to go to work.

Work tomorrow then off to watch a DGD in a basketball scrimmage game. This is her first time playing B-ball and she's loving it. After the game we'll spend time with family. Looking forward to it.

A little snow this morning. Now it is very windy. Snow is blowing across the roadways making them slippery. Yuck!! Should be okay for tomorrow.

Found out that my youngest son's father-in-law passed away on Wednesday. I haven't seen my son for several years along with the grandchildren and by the way the obituary reads, they are expecting a girl in April. It hurts to know that my son can't resolve our differences and let us be a part of their lives. I just keep hoping and praying that someday he will.

TTFN

Another day of sunshine although there was a dusting of frost over everything when I got up. Sparkling light. A day of looking back and looking forward. Blessings and sorrows. Life and faith.

Morning team. I did get to the gym after work yesterday, then Walmart, grocery store, Panera bread for my whole grain bagels, (I only eat 1/2 of one every other day), then hit the car wash and gas station. DH was getting worried about where I was so he called as I was backing out of the car wash. Apparently he forgot I was going to the gym. He seemed a little upset when I got home but when I told him I was at the gym till nearly 3, he said he forgot I was going and he seemed better. Silly man. It's sweet that he was worried though.

Today it's just 2 of us in the office until the rest get back from the training I had on Tuesday. They should be back till about 2.

Might have a dusting to an inch tonight. Ick!! Can't wait till we go to Florida next month.

Morning team. Sorry I didn't get by yesterday. I was supposed to be out the door early to travel with a coworker to another branch for some training but we had some freezing rain and we didn't go. We did go to the afternoon session so that required training is done for the year.

After we got back from that, I had TOPS, in which I gained 2.4 pounds. OUCH!! Thought I would have a gain but not that much. Gotta get my butt in gear and get it back off.

After TOPS, DH and I had a church consistory meeting so didn't get home till nearly 9pm.

Today after work I'm planning on hitting the gym, then Walmart, Panera bread, and the grocery store.

Today is hubby's BD. He doesn't make a big deal of it so SHHH that I told you. Hehe!

Morning team. We wound up with about 9 inches total in my area. That was plenty!! PennDOT really dropped the ball in my opinion. They plowed our road once Saturday morning and didn't plow again until Sunday afternoon!! Granted we live on a rural road, but it is heavily traveled and many people live in my area. Sure wish I knew who to call cause I would. It's ridiculous!!

Went to IHOP after church yesterday. Had a good meal of eggs, bacon, hash browns, and 2 pancakes with strawberries added. Very yummy!

Shoulders were sore from the shoveling yesterday. Better today. I hit the gym for a workout this morning before work. Was glad to be there.

Back to work. TTFN

Yes, the Sun is glorious and a great promise for melting. Most of the Churches are cancelled around here even though there is only 5-6 inches, but some ice under that. Too dangerous for older people to try to get out unless necessary.

We ended with 5-6 inches here. I'm on the inside looking out and going to stay that way. Pretty, but cold.

Morning team. Did round 1 of shoveling and plowing this morning. Have around 8 inches so far and it's still snowing. It's very fine so it doesn't pile up too fast, but it can stop any time. Supposed to get windy so it will blow all the way to the ocean, I hope!!

Have a little church work to do, then I'll tackle something else. Not sure what yet before round 2 sometime this afternoon. I was thoroughly wet and sweaty after the first round.

We still have rain here, but that is to change to snow later in the day. I would be okay if it skipped to the North of us.

My dental appointment didn't take long at all yesterday and I then met my niece for lunch and a bit of shopping. This afternoon will be her last radiation treatment and I'm praying that the surgery to remove the piece of equipment that transports the radiation will go well and easy.

Morning team. Well the piece of exercise equipment is still sitting at my house. The lady that wanted it fell down her steps yesterday morning and spent most of the day in the ER. Hurt her back and hip, nothing broke though. I have another lady that definitely wants it, but she can't get it till next week as she was on her way to Pittsburg because her Aunt passed away. We were supposed to go see our GD play basketball in a scrimmage tomorrow but the snow has cancelled that too. My whole week has been like that, one cancellation after another. I'm glad it's almost over.

They are now saying we are to get 4 to 8 inches of snow in my area. That's plenty for me.

TTFN and TGIF!!!

I had a dental check up last week and had the beginnings of a cavity or something so I'm going back today to get that taken care of. Hope it isn't very involved. The drive is an hour but I will get to see my niece while there and perhaps take her to lunch.

Morning team. Dentist appt. yesterday was okay. I have the start of a cavity so going back on Feb. 24 to get that filled. Thought I had a piece of exercise equipment that I don't use sold but the lady's daughter got sick and she forgot about coming. Understandable, but now she can't come. Contacted someone else that was interested and haven't heard from them either. Maybe later I will. Hope so.

Have to be at work early today for a teleconference so can't linger here too long.

We are to get "plowable snow" Friday night into Saturday but they are not saying how much. Guess time will tell.

Ice here this morning. I can look out onto my deck and see a coating of ice. I have one appointment later this morning, but can reschedule it if the weather doesn't improve. I have a dinner with friends tonight, but it should have turned to rain by then. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Morning team. I opted to not go to TOPS last night. I needed to pick something up and the place was only open till 6pm. They don't start weighing us in till nearly 5:30 so I didn't go. I think the scale would have been up anyways so on to next week.

Still bitter cold here and the wind just won't stop. It might get into the 20s today but we may have snow showers this evening too. They are predicting a snowstorm this weekend, not saying how much yet. Depending on who you listen to, we're getting anywhere from 2 inches to 2 feet. Big difference there. Hope if we have to have anything that it's the 2 inches as I'm the one that has to get out there and shovel it while DH recovers. He might be able to do the plowing but the shoveling would be up to me. We'll see as we get closer.

Work today till 1 then a dentist appt. at 1:40. We are taking the car to the garage for inspection this morning, then DH will take me to work. He'll pick me up later.

TTFN.

Hey team. A quick pop in to update. DH is doing really well. Still sore when he coughs but he's getting up and down a lot easier. I just hope he doesn't start doing things he shouldn't as he feels better in the coming weeks. He isn't supposed to lift more than 10 pounds for 6 weeks. Sure hope he listens.

I'm off work today so DH and I went to Walmart, Staples, the grocery store, then the gym. He sat while I worked out. Felt good to get back there. I also went to Target and Kohl's looking for a flannel nightgown after not finding one at Walmart. Finally found one at Kohl's for 75% off. Plus the lady said if I used my card, she would do a scratch off coupon. Got another 15% off. Still cost $14 but at least it will keep me warm on these cold nights. It's only 14 degrees at 4pm with a stiff wind. Real feel is at minus 1. Tomorrow isn't going to be any better. Brrr!!

I'm trying to gather my wits about what I need to take to the beach for the month. I'm terrible at packing the right things and usually take too much of the wrong things. Decisions, decisions.

Cold and damp here again today.

Good Morning team. Today will be busy. Work till noon, then home for a bite of lunch, then to my niece's house to set her up with some products from my business, then it's off to a January Social with one of our tractor clubs. We'll have a meeting, election of officers, eat, then an auction. DH made 3 cutting boards to take that are made out of 4 different kinds of wood (walnut, oak, cherry, and ash) and each piece is cut into triangles and glued together. Then he used pine for the edging. Two are oblong and one is an elongated octagon. They are very nice and I hope they bring a lot of money for the club. He put a lot of work into them. He is now working on two more, one for me and one for his daughter.

Tomorrow we have to be at church early so that my books can be audited for 2015. I have everything ready.

Morning team. Hubby is still coming along. He didn't do much yesterday while I was at work. He managed to get the trash burned and his brother came over to see how he was doing. While here, his brother swept the walk off down to the garage. I had done it before work yesterday but it snowed some more after I did it. It would have melted in the afternoon as temps got into the mid 30s but it was nice that he did it.

Something flew into the back of my right knee yesterday afternoon. Don't know if I turned wrong or what happened but by the time I got home I was limping. This morning it seems fine. Being a little careful though as I don't want to aggravate it again. I have a 10.5 hour day at work today.

TTFN and TGIF

I really liked the leader. However, the meeting was short and didn't really have much in the way of content. She just talked about the difference in the point system. Didn't offer suggestions as to how to implement it. But then maybe the other people attending already knew more about WW than I did. I was impressed that the leader encouraged me to go ahead and begin to work with the materials without joining until I return from my trip in February. So, if I join, it will be in March.

Hey team. Busy weekend. Saturday did some training at my sponsor's house for the business I'm in. We were there most all day, then sat and watched the PA Farm Show on TV. It's a big event in this area, like a country fair only indoors.

Sunday we got up and realized we had sprung a leak in the roof and it trickled down to the downstairs bathroom ceiling. Great, another bill. Sunday after church, I worked on my church reports and got them all done. I'm proud to say that they all came out to the penny on the first try. WooHoo!! No searching for something I forgot to put in.

DH got called a contractor and they came and fixed the roof so hopefully no more leaks. Course now it's only in the 20s all week so no rain to make the roof leak. No snow yet either.

Tomorrow is DH's surgery for his hernia. I have to have him there by 8:45 am. They didn't say what time the surgery actually is, but once he's in there, it's supposed to only be about an hour. We'll see. Not sure if I'll make it to TOPS tomorrow night, it all depends on how DH is doing. I have the day off of course, and I also have Wednesday off. Might be a good thing.

TTFN

The meeting was great. I really liked the leader. She advised me to pick it up on my own until I return from a month away in February. So until then, I will read and practice eating and cooking by the points.

Snow here this morning. Not much, but cold and icy.

That so good to hear about you diabetes being better.

Going to an Weight Watchers info meeting today to see if it will work for me, then visiting a friend at the hospital, then taking Christmas decorations to storage.

It is overcast here, but warmer than the last couple of days.

I could just repeat yesterday's Brrrr!. I'm off to a dental cleaning and some shopping. I discovered one of the reasons my weight has been going up yesterday. I got my report from my recent annual physical and my thyroid was out of balance. The doctor wants to up my dosage of Levothyroxine. Maybe that will help and make me feel better.

Brrrr! Cold morning here. A little bit of ice on the lake. I woke up before 5 a.m. and so it will be a long day. I need to finish up the demolition of the Christmas decorations and get the house back to some sense of normal. I am going to play Mahjong with friends this afternoon.

Morning team. Very cold this morning. Only in the low single digits, climbing to only in the 20s again today. Tomorrow the temps are to be better.

Party didn't go on last night as the person that was supposed to come went home sick from work. I told her that Thursday evening or Saturday would work, we'll see what happens.

Because she cancelled, I was able to stop at the blood drive and donate a pint. I hadn't been able to do that since last June. Got home before 6:15.

Yesterday was busy at work. Still have paperwork to catch up on today. Hope I can get it done before the courier comes.

TOPS tonight. I'll be in leeway but not sure if I'll gain a little or stay the same. Guess I'll see later.

Cute Donna. That was my weekend, but I'm up and active this morning. I was dragging on Saturday and Sunday. Dreary and cold day here so I will get all my exercise and water in inside today. Treadmill and taking down the Christmas tree and packing away the decorations should get me off to a good start.

Good Morning team. A little humor to start the day. Had a little skiff of snow overnight, our first. It's not even measurable. Hard to believe that we are 4 days into 2016 and we have had no snow on the ground yet. Every day we go like that is one day closer to spring!! It is cold though, only in the 20s for a high today.

Work then I have a Yoli Better Body Party (BBP) at my house tonight. My step daughter is coming over to listen to the videos and sample products. Hope she signs up like her mom did last month. Fingers crossed.

Morning all! I plan to begin taking down the tree and decorations this evening and tomorrow after Church. Cold here also but very welcome sunshine. This Fall and Winter have been so dreary so the Sun makes everyone happy.

Today is spent trying to get some projects started.

Morning team. It's a cold 27 degrees this morning. Only to be in the low 30s today and tomorrow, Monday is only to be in the low 20s. Yuck.

Stayed home for New Year's eve, just my hubby and I. New Year's day we took down the tree and undecorated the house. I'm always a little sad when Christmas comes to an end. It's such a joyous time of year for most people.

Work today then helping to audit some books for an organization we're in. After that I'm not sure what we'll do. It usually only takes about an hour to do them.

Tomorrow after church we will come home, then we have a Christmas party to attend for the campground we belong to. Making fruit salad to take along.

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and wishing all a Happy, Healthy, and Safe New Year.

I'm invited to an early champaign party from 5 to 7 p.m. so that people can go on to later parties. I plan to be back home in my jammies watching the ball drop on TV.

Sorry I didn't get to post over the holiday. I had NO internet access until I returned home yesterday afternoon. Now I need to get busy and finish unloading presents, more laundry and getting the house in shape. I won't take down the decorations and tree until 12th night so I just need to do some cleaning up.

I hope everyone had a good holiday and is safe.

Morning team. It's been a crazy week at work but only 5 hours today and I am done till Monday. We had a possible compromise in some of our customer's debit cards and we are trying to get them replaced by Christmas. We thought UPS would deliver them by noon yesterday but now I guess it will be today. So many upset customers but others are understanding and even thankful that we cancelled their cards before thieves could get any money. If people would put their talents into doing good instead of always trying to steal from others, this world would be a much better place.

Going to Christmas Eve services at our sister church this evening, then to our daughter & SIL to have Christmas with them. Tomorrow we will go to our son and DIL and her family. Saturday I will be going after Christmas shopping to get a start on next year.

I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. May your hearts and homes be warm and your troubles be light.

I'm in for the 2%. It would only mean losing about 4 or 5 pounds, but it would put me where I'd like to be.

Donna

Oh so busy! I'm busy trying to gather everything (food, presents, clothing) I need to take to my Sister's house with me for Christmas and not forget anything. I am taking cookies to friend this afternoon and then packing the car this evening.

May you have a Very Merry and Blessed Christmas and Happy Holiday to all.

39.2 (40) pounds lost is fantastic. I need to be following your lead. I'm struggling now with the see-saw effect. Up and down. But essentially the same and even creeping up. I have a new start every day.

I will be leaving for my Sister's house on Wednesday for 4/5 days and will be more active. That should help.

The cookie making group yesterday was so much fun. We also have two types of soup and chicken salad to keep us going. We now have lots of tins full of cookies to give to friends and the elderly.

How is everyone else coming along?

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.

At the end of every road there is something worth seeing.

I have four friends coming over this morning to "bake cookies". I can imagine there will also be a lots of eating (two different soups and chicken salad), lots of laughter and a good bit of flour on the floor and mess on the counters! LOL But we will come out with cookies to give away to friends and the elderly (like I'm not one of those) emoticon

I'm game for the 2%. I will set up a topic for January. But you can go ahead and start there.
