Taxes! emoticon I have GOT to get those done!

Aww, don't worry about it, Ella. I didn't even realize myself. I just wanted to tease you about it. emoticon

emoticon Don't bagpipes come from windy, rainy north Scotland? So the weather was perfect, right? hee hee

Oh No! Cat, I never received your friend request-I promise! I just went on your page and requested you as my friend. I'm so very sorry. I never received a notice or email or anything. I would never just ignore your request.

We had our parade on Saturday in between rain showers! It was cold and windy though which made for some rough pipe playing. Luckily, the audience didn't seem to mind. We received lot of compliments even though we've played much better in the past. Weather conditions always wreck havoc with the bagpipes!

Other than that we played with the pups, did our taxes (ugh) and cooked and cleaned. I really wanted to take the dogs for a walk but Saturday was windy, cold and rainy and Sunday was really cold, in the 30's. Even the dogs didn't spend much time out in the yard! This upcoming weekend is suppossed to be really nice, in the 70's. We'll definitely take them out then!

I'll sign off for now, have lots of work to do. Have a great day everyone!! emoticon

Bella thanks you. emoticon

I don't know if anyone else gets behind like I do with their email notifications but I get new Sparkfriends like when I was away from Sparks from that time period when I was in the hospital that I was not aware of. It is not like I intentionally ignore the request from them to be their friend I just didn't know they requested. There is a link that you can run that you can see that will show who has requested to be your friend that you have not reciprocated, friends that you are mutual friends with and then people you have requested to be friends with but they have not reciprocated. It is:


www.sparkpeople.com/friend_lookup.as

You might want to run it just to see it's kind of interesting emoticon

Can also help you clean up your friends list if you want to - the ones in black are no longer active on Sparks.

Cat - I am so sorry you are having a downer day - you really have been something that most of us have only heard of happening in the world "over there" and unfortunately you are "over there" I am like Ella I will be so glad when you can get away from that environment and back to a safer area. I am glad that you are entering the challenge it will be good to have you with us-- look forward to reading your blog.

Ella - hope your parade wasn't rained out today.

I spent the day with my daughter at a Diabetes Fair she was there to both get information for herself but also to cover it for the newspaper she works for. I went shopping at Wal-Mart and went down the Easter Candy aisle - just to see what candy they had for the grandkids. They had some of the strangest things at the end of the aisle it was Peter Rabbit organics and they had things like Kale/Mango/Spinach combo flavors - I am going to post pictures of these in a blog - but I was looking at these and thinking your kids would think they had really made you mad if you gave them that for their Easter candy-lol.

Today was a bit of a downer, but people here are tough, and I can't afford to be a weak link. Thanks for thinking of me, Ella!

I'm glad you're back in the foster game. Do you ever think that your forever pups watch the foster babies come and go and figure they'd better shape up or they're next? LOL

Ok, Beth, tomorrow is emoticon for me. I'm joining your challenge! ... I think I'll go blog about it!

Oh Cat, I'm so very sorry. What a horrible thing to happen. Whether or not you're in a war zone doesn't matter. He was special to you and now he's gone. I'm glad that you're safe. I'll be glad when you're out of there and working some place safer! What a terrible thing to have to go through. emoticon

Our band is suppossed to be in a rescheduled parade tomorrow but the weather looks iffy for tomorrow as well, so we may be going after all. We don't have much planned for this weekend-which is nice.

I guess I need to check on getting another foster dog since it looks like the people are happy with our previous foster girl.

Have a nice Friday everyone!

Leisa - We'll keep MacDuff's fashion secret. I don't want Jersey to get jealous! I'm glad you enjoyed your daughter's show. My father didn't come often, and when he did, he fell asleep. To be fair, I don't think I was all that good. emoticon Night! emoticon

Beth - Westie Chit Chat works for me, but I also like Ella's idea - Terrier Talk. I'm so sorry about the chest pains. I can't imagine how scared you must feel about it. My arm went numb suddenly, and I freaked out, wondering if I was having a heart attack. emoticon

Ella - Wow. I'd never thought about the effect of weather on bagpipes. How interesting. Congrats on your foster being adopted!

The big New Year's event was attacked today. My favourite Afghan was attacked but survived. Unfortunately, a very special man, delightful and elegant, was murdered by insurgents. It's weighing on me, and I'm not having my best day, but it is a war zone, and this sort of things happens, so ....

Hello friends!

A very late day for me as tonight was kindergarten registration for next year. They are so cute and eager to start kindergarten. But by the time it is over I am exhausted! Just wanted to check in and say a quick hello.

Happy Spring Everyone! emoticon

Leisa, I hope you had a better wake up this morning. I hate feeling rushed in the mornings, although I always am. I keep putting off things I should do the night before then run around trying to accomplish everything before I leave for work!

Beth, I hope you're doing better today. I'm so glad that you spent the night with your sister. I'm also glad that you're being cautious and not taking any chances.

I spoke to our previous foster dog's new parents. He said they're happy with her, mentioned a few health problems, some we knew about and told him and others I wasn't aware of. He mentioned a few things we had previously discussed so I don't know if he wasn't listening or forgot, but all in all they're very happy with her which is a relief.

Have a great day everyone!! emoticon

Beth--- emoticon and prayers! I am glad you are staying with your sister. Take care friend!

Ella---I am glad you survived your busy weekend. I am counting down days (7 more!) until our spring break. No big plans but it's time for a real break!

I have not been sleeping well. Actually I've been sleeping too well as I can't wake up in the morning and then start the day frantic. So I am going to go to bed early tonight and hopefully be able to get going in the morning better.

Tomorrow is the first day of spring! emoticon emoticon

Ella - as usual you were super busy. You already had your Spring break it seems and Leisa is counting down to hers. My sisters starts on the 24th. I never even thought about the humidity being a problem for the bagpipes, wow I am glad that everything worked out ok for the parade and the wedding - you really had some good luck on your side there. You also got a lot of good exercise though- even though you were sore emoticon it was worth it.
I am so glad that the foster girl worked out so well with her new parents. "Terrier Talk" is a cute idea I like that one too.

So we now have the following top vote getters:

Let's decide (1) Westie Chit-Chat
(2) Terrier Talk

I am still having chest pains so I am going to go stay at my sister and brother-in-laws house tonight. They live in the same town as the hospital and can drive - that is more than Bella can do if I need to go in the middle of the night. I got a little worried last night and had a lot of problems all day so I think it is a wise decision. I plan on coming back home when she comes back to school to tomorrow (she teaches school in the town where I live).

Hope you are all doing well will check back with you all tomorrow.

Hi Everyone! I survived another St. Patrick's Day. Wow, what a crazy weekend and Monday. Friday night I was doing my best to get to our gig but ran into bumper to bumper traffic going home. It was also the start of Spring Break and I think everyone on the road was headed out of town!!! We were late arriving, but not late for the start time, so it all worked out. We walked around the town square and played 4 different times.

Saturday was the big parade. Luckily the rain held off until later in the day. We walked the couple of miles to the start point, then of course walked the parade route back. It was very overcast and very humid. At the end it felt like I couldn't get any air into my pipe bag due to the humidity. My bag felt wet even though it wasn't raining. Then we walked a couple more blocks over to meet up with some friends. then walked back to the car, drove home to change shirts and let out the dogs and get everyone fed then went to our friend's wedding. We ran through everything several times as she wanted us to pipe starting together then separate and walk down each aisle. It proved to be a bit challenging but we managed. Luckily the air conditioning was on in the building which helped dry out the pipes.

The next day I could hardly walk!!!!! I used aspercream and took some tylenol as well as a soak in the hot bath and Monday was better. We piped at three different locations and had a long but fun day!

Our foster Scottie girl was adopted out Monday morning!! We're very excited as she's 9 years old and so very sweet. Her new parents are an older retired couple, which is the environment she came from. They all took to each other right away and I think it's a great fit!

Cat-it's great to see you again!! How about "Terrier Talk" for our new thread? I think the idea is a great one!

Leisa-are you on spring break this week also?

Beth-how are you felling today?

Have a great day everyone!! emoticon

emoticon emoticon Too cute! I am not going to tell Jersey about MacDuff's rain slicker and umbrella or she will be jealous. emoticon

We just got home from the school's talent show. My daughter danced in it with a couple of friends. This is her last year at that school so it was kind of sad. It was sweet getting to watch some of my former students perform though.

Hope everyone is doing well tonight. emoticon to you all!

Leisa, hmm I thought of a couple that sounded cute to me but could also be taken to be a little dirty (almost anything I thought of involving "bones"!)

Maybe Pooch Pow Wow? The Canine Club House?

Haha - Westies are nothing like cats .... except for rain. MacDuff even has a slicker, but he runs from eave to eave and looks reproachfully at me, as though I could turn it off if I really wanted to. He will now do his business if I hold an umbrella over him! LOL

Glad you got to read for fun. That's what rainy nights are for!

I like Westie ChitChat. I'm never good at the cutesy creative names...though I'm sure we could do something cute about barking, howling, doghouse, etc...but not feeling it tonight.

I know what y'all mean about the rain. Jersey was hilarious! She wanted to go out and obviously needed to go out. But as soon as she felt the rain on her she tried to come back in like "I can hold it really" crazy dog!

I am a lazy one tonight! I finished a great book that I started Saturday and read a lot of on the rainy Sunday. Going to tuck my kiddos in bed and call it a Monday!

Happy St. Pat's friends! emoticon

Leisa - I'm glad you enjoyed your weekend. Those key lime gooey bars sound divine! I don't have weekends per se, but I do try to get some down time whenever I can. We all need to recharge our batteries.

Beth - I hope you enjoyed the massage. I am often in pain and can't handle a strong touch, but a gentle massage can do wonders. Haha- MacDuff is the same way. He really doesn't like ran and seems to think I'm somehow responsible!

Hey - do you think we should start a new chat thread? Then people would get a notification and maybe come join?

I hope you all have had a great weekend! I think mine was just what the doctor ordered. I enjoyed a beautiful day outside yesterday taking Jersey for several walks. It has been non-stop rain today. I took advantage of that and stayed in. I read a book, relaxed, and made a yummy dinner. The doctor probably would have ordered a healthier dinner, but we enjoyed it. I made shrimp and grits for the first time. Great comfort food on a rainy day! And I made key lime gooey bars for dessert. Again, not the healthiest of days...but I needed the emotional relaxation.

So...it's back to the stress of work tomorrow. But I only have 10 school days until spring break! emoticon

Cat - hope you have a stress free weekend.

Leisa - you too have fun being a couch emoticon .

My daughter and I are going to get massages for the first time ever I hope it doesn't hurt - I know that sounds weird because it is supposed to feel good - but I am in so much pain from the MS these past few days I am not sure how it is going to feel to have someone touch me let alone put pressure on me and I wasn't sure how I was going to feel anyway with anyone putting pressure on me with my nerve pain so it ought to be interesting - emoticon emoticon . After we get all relaxed, or keyed up - whichever the case may be -we will go get my daughters oil changed in her car- getting ready for the trip to Dallas.


Ella- you have a good, although busy, weekend.

Hello friends!

It is Friday night which means I am one exhausted woman! About all I am good for on Friday night is being a total couch potato. emoticon

Cat---I am glad you are getting a few days away. emoticon

I met with the upset parent on Wednesday and it all worked out well. It is sad how many younger and younger kids come to school with issues these days. It seems worse now than when I started 21 years ago. emoticon

I am looking forward to a weekend without too many plans. emoticon and emoticon are high on my priority list! Have a good one friends!

Hey, ladies! TGIF! I'm heading up to Kabul this weekend. It's been a ridiculously stressful week and getting away for a few days might help.

Ella- Yeah sometimes Bella helps a little too much -lol - you are right a hindrance is correct. Good luck with all your doctor's appointments you are compacting them all in like I do, except you at least spread yours over a week --I am cramming all of mine in one day when I go to Dallas on the 4th of April I have an 8:00 Pulmonary Specialist, 10:00 Heart Failure Doctor, 1:00 Nephrologist (Kidney Doctor), 3:00 Neurologist (MS Doctor) after that I will be ready to crash. We will have been from one end of Dallas to the other by the end of the day but at least it's only for that one day . emoticon

So sorry to hear about Shayla's tooth. I can't believe that your bird is that dense. I will pray for the little terrier that is so sad. That is so cool teaching others your art passing on your expertise. I look forward to hearing more of your music are you going to be able to record some more of your performances and put it on the Westie site for us to hear? emoticon

Leisa- glad I could give you a laugh. You made me laugh visualizing Jersey flying thru the sky as a kite-lol. Hope everything worked out with your angry parent . I can't believe that parents are already angry in kindergarten. I am shocked at how bad that kids are though behavior wise already in 2nd grade. My sister is a 2nd grade teacher and I am shocked at the stories she tells at the behavior problems she sees. I have another friend that is the school counselor and she comes over to walk with Bella (I have problems with dizziness still so she takes her on long walks around the neighborhood she loves it) - and she tells me she has a lot of kids get sent to her office from the younger grades for behavioral counseling - I just can't believe the kids start out being a problems so young - when I went to school I was terrified of defying the teacher, there was no way I was going to challenge authority of any kind. emoticon

Hope everyone is doing well. It's bath night for Jersey girl!

Happy Thursday Westie Lovers!

Not much going on here, but I thought I would check in.

Our Robin was back, beating on the kitchen window this morning. Of course dogs were barking like crazy, it sounded like a kennel in my house!! That's one persistant bird!

I have a co-worker who has a boston terrier who's only about 9 months old. He's been having seizures and is being observed by his vet today. If you could spare a prayer for him it would be greatly appreciated. They're not sure yet what the cause is, but other than the seizures he's very healthy.

I have band practice and will be helping to teach beginning bagpipes tonight. It always makes for a long day as I drive straight there from work, class starts at 6 and at 7 practice starts and goes til 8:30. Normally we go out to the pub with the band and make it home by 10:30, but tonight we're going home. DH said he's really tired and we'll be spending all weekend with the band and Monday.

Have a great evening everyone! emoticon

Hello everyone!

Beth---Both of your stories gave me a good chuckle tonight. Thanks! emoticon

Ella---Good luck with your appointment tomorrow. I am terrible about putting off the dentist and then miserable when I do go because I put it off. emoticon

Cat---Sending you hugs hoping that things are going well for you. emoticon

Not much to report here tonight. It turned cold and windy this afternoon. I worked late to meet with the unhappy parent. By the time I got home, made dinner, and washed some clothes, it is now going for 9 and time to get the kiddos in bed. No walk for me today. Just took Jersey out long enough to take care of business. It's so cold and windy I thought I was going to have a white fluffy kite!

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Beth, I can just envision you trying to do crunches and Bella trying her best to get you up off of the floor! Bless her heart, she's trying her best to help you every way that she possibly can!! She's quite the treasure.....and hinderance-lol!

That was a really funny story about your coworker too. I've had bees hover around me when I wear something colorful but I've never been around hummingbirds.

I have an eye dr. appointment tomorrow, then next week the mammogram is scheduled. I put off the worst for last-the dreaded dentist appointment. I had my physical last month, so I'm slowly getting everything taken care of! I have a small cavity that needs to be filled and another that's cracking that needs to be re-filled. I'm really not looking forward to it at all, but it's a necessity. As they said, better to treat them when they're small than to do a root canal later-amen to that!!! Shayla had her teeth cleaned last month too. She lost two teeth, one before we took her and he pulled the other as it was dangling there. It's her top two. We think she actually pulled them out when she does tug of war with her sister and they won't back down, they pull until they bleed! That's why I don't have toys around, they fight over them.

It's almost quitting time so I'll sign off. Have a nice evening everyone! emoticon

Leisa - I agree with you just reading about Ella's plans makes you feel as if you have had a virtual workout if only they would burn the calories for you as well then we could have something there emoticon , My Mom has a large hummingbird wreath hanging on her door of the nursing home that my cousin made her. My grandmother loved them too she used to sit for hours at the windows and watch them.

I have a funny story about a co-workers wife and a hummingbird - well funny to me but she didn't think it too funny - she was out planting flowers in her flower bed and she had on a really pretty flowered shirt and she was standing near the humming bird feeder and she said that all of the sudden she felt a real sharp jab and looked down and a hummingbird was trying to get food from her flowers she had neglected to fill her feeders and he was hungry. She said didn't know whether to be offended or proud that her shirt authentic enough to fool a hummingbird. She chalked it up to heat exhaustion on the birds part emoticon

I did the 10-Minute Crunchless Core Workout - have you ever tried doing that with the help of a dog. Well I think that ups the intensity level to a 12 she got under my back and decided to help me she thought I was having trouble doing the sit-ups so she was trying to shove me up - over and over again - I really wish I had of recorded it - it would have been more fun to watch than to experience. She didn't realize that I was not supposed to be going up all the way but you know Bella always trying to help where needed. I have decided that any floor exercises are going to be extremely difficult because the minute I get on the floor she thinks I am there to play and a toy ends up in my face - I mean I'm having enough difficulty doing them on my own with out added resistance - anyone else having this problem or is it just me?

Ella---I am rested up. But just reading your busy schedule makes me tired! emoticon You are one busy lady! I hope you take time to rest yourself.

I love hummingbirds too! My mom was a huge fan of them as well so much so that we had one engraved on her tombstone. emoticon Gosh how I still miss her!

Beth---I am so proud of your hard work on the exercise. I am praying for you.

Not much to report here. It's been a busy couple of days at work. Pretty stressful as it is testing time and I have a parent who got upset with me. I do not like to have anyone upset with me so that stresses me out. I found myself today really wanting to stress eat. I can't say I resisted the whole time. But I did take Jersey on 2 separate walks today so my steps are close to 10,000. My health coach called tonight for the first time with my new insurance. It seemed kind of strange talking to a complete stranger about this stuff. Which is funny considering we are all strangers on here. Anyway she calls me back in 6 weeks to see how I am doing. I think I'll just keep checking in with my westie friends daily. Love y'all!

Beth, I love hummingbirds! Years ago DH & I were taking supplies to a boy scout camp for our son & his troop and on the way back we stopped at a restaurant that had hummingbird feeders all along their outside porch. We ate and watched them the whole time, they were beautiful! Our Robin was back again this morning but not with as much enthusiasm as before, so maybe he's catching on-lol!

Tonight we have full band practice, then again on Thursday. Tomorrow after work I go straight to church to help clean up after the community dinner that they offer, then go straight to choir practice from there. Friday our band is playing at 7pm at an outside event that they have every 2nd Friday. Saturday is the parade at 11am, lunch with friends then DH & I will be playing at a friends wedding. Sunday I have church & 2 meetings then on Monday we'll be busy playing all day at four different locations-Whew! I'm already tired!! It is a lot of fun and hopefully I'll burn a lot of calories!

Thankfully we'll have time to run home between gigs on Saturday to let the dogs out and spend some time with them. We usually skip a performance or two on the actual day to let the dogs out some. I don't like keeping them confined to the kitchen all day long if they don't need to be! I'm sure they appreciate it as well.

Well, I have lots of work to do so I'd better get back to it. Cat I hope you're doing well. Leisa I hope you're rested up. Beth you're always in my prayers and congratulations on getting through your shower and increasing your heart strength!! emoticon I'm so proud of you!

Take care everyone! emoticon

Hi sorry I am so late getting her - this exercise is killing me trying to get the 100 minutes of exercise in around trying to keep up with all the teams I am a little overwhelmed emoticon but I just need to get more organized - emoticon I have really been grateful for being able to do the exercise and pushing myself way beyond the limits of the 100 minutes but I really want to make my heart stronger - I only have 24 more days until I go back to the heart failure doctor for re-evaluation for the transplant list and I am still 12 pounds away from the weight he wanted me at, but the last time I went my heart function had gone from the 7% it had been when it started when I had the first heart attack to 25% so if I am hoping if I lose enough weight and exercise enough that I may strengthen my heart enough that I may not need a heart transplant after all - maybe just wishful thinking on my part.

Leisa- I know what you mean about the drunken dog they have to smell every bush and every leaf. It's fun to watch -for a little while- emoticon

Ella- Your poor robin you would think he would get a clue, my hummingbirds are back already this year but they just hover outside the atrium window looking in as if to say here I am come feed me. They do that every year when their feeders are empty and just stare at me it's kind of freaky if they can't get my attention they have even gone down to Bella's level - I have tried to take a picture of that but of course the minute Bella sees them the frantic barking starts and they fly off emoticon

Hello everyone!

Beth...I agree with Ella. Your attitude about it being a new day is awesome! I need to remember that as I go into tomorrow.

Ella...Your robin story gave me a chuckle. I was never so tuned in to the outdoor sounds until I had Jersey come along and start barking at every single one of them! God bless you Ella with more than one dog!

Speaking of spring, it got up to 72 here today. I took Jersey for 2 walks trying to walk off some of the frustrations from my day. She is so funny as she is on the hunt the whole time smelling everything! My DH told her she looked like a drunk driver as she was weaving back and forth across the road sniffing. She keeps that nose so close to the ground I am amazed she doesn't bump it.

Gotta go. Mondays just wear me out. emoticon Plus I have a good book I am reading. emoticon

Beth, so sorry to hear that you had such a rough weekend. It sounds like you have the right attitude about it though. We're here for you if you need us!

Leisa, your activities sound great! We still need to get our dogs out for walks. Now that it will be lighter later in the day we can probably make that happen! I know they'll like it and DH & I can get our steps in! I"m sure Jersey loved being outside, I know ours always do.

Spring is here, we have a Robin that keeps flying into and hitting one of our windows! At first I thought someone was knocking on our door, but then we discovered it was the bird. He won't take a hint and go away. He was there yesterday morning and again this morning before I left for work. Of course all the dogs start barking once he starts "knocking" on the window. Let's hope he's gone by now!!!

We only had cold weather on Saturday luckily, no precipitation. It's beautiful today, temps in the 70's today and tomorrow and then a chance of...........a wintry mix on Wednesday! Pretty crazy! At least we're having nice days in between the bad one. I'll take it over all the bad ones back to back. I'm hoping for nice weather on Saturday since that's our parade. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Have a great day everyone!! emoticon

Leisa- sounds like you had a great weekend. Glad you had so much family fun. Sounds like Jersey had a blast at her first picnic too. We had a rainy weekend so no outdoor weather here.

I had a rough weekend but this too shall pass - you can't pick your family and you find out fast that they aren't always there for you it really hurts but that's life emoticon and we just have to move on and go with what you have emoticon . Today is a new day

Hello friends! I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend. Is it beginning to feel like spring in your area?

We have had a busy weekend. I took Friday off to go on a field trip with my twins. We spent 3 hours at a video game/laser tag place. We then toured the University of GA and watched a UGA baseball game. We ate at the Varsity and got back to school at 9:00 that night. It was a long day! But a lot of fun!

Saturday morning the twins ran in a Color Me Green color run. I helped throw color and give out water. It was a lot of fun! Today we went for a picnic and hike in the mountains. We took Jersey along with us for her first picnic. I think she really enjoyed being outside in the warm sun as much as we did. Over the 3 busy days I logged about 32,000 steps! So now we are all home and exhausted!

How are y'all? Busy weekend? Feeling good? I hope so!

Ella - sounds like it was really fun. I didn't realize the weather was going to be bad again tomorrow. Our weather is just supposed to be rainy and 48 degrees for a low so hopefully won't go any lower than that. Yes I will be cooking corned beef and cabbage for St Patrick's Day, but no other plan than that - emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Cat - your 100 Day Challenge can be anything you want doesn't have to be exercise, can be changing any habit you have that you feel needs to be changed that would benefit your health.

Hello everyone. The Gig last night was a hoot! We led out the bowling teams that were all in costume-hysterical. They had a hazmat team, elvis team, etc. The coach came and shook each of our hands individually and thanked us for being there. We played to the end of the room and all the teams passed us by. After we finished they asked that we play again in the center-I guess they like us!

Afterwards they fed us with catered mexican food and chicken and beef from Outback Steakhouse-very nice. Luckily there was healthy beef & chicken fajita meat with peppers and onions and delicious guacamole, so I could make do.

We have a snow/sleet/freezing rain event coming in tomorrow. We were suppossed to be playing for a fund raiser for Pit Bull Rescue but it's been cancelled due to the impending weather. So, that's why I plan on snuggling with five doggies in the morning instead! DH said he may go to the couch We'll all fit (I think).

On another team I was asking what everyone will be doing for St. Patrick's Day or the Saturday before. We have the parade on the 15th then a wedding to play at that night. On the actual day I took off work as we'll be going to play at three different places.

So-what's everyone else's plans? Anyone cooking corned beef & cabbage? emoticon

HI, everyone --Sorry I've been away for a few days.

I wrote a long paragraph about the state of civ-mil affairs but decided not to post it. I'll just say that our military colleagues have behaved disappointingly, and the civilians are fed up. It's a real shame.

Leisa - I don't know Puppies, but she invited me to her team. I had no idea of any history. I'm sorry. It's hard when we pour ourselves into a team and it doesn't go as well as we'd hoped.

Feel better! emoticon

Beth - I had a talk with myself this morning. emoticon I want to begin the 100 days challenge. However, I'm under enormous stress right now, working 14-16 ours a day in a hostile environment, and I've hurt my knee to boot. I don't dare say anything because it could get me kicked out, and I want to leave on my terms.

However, I have a big event on Monday, so I plan to being on Tuesday. I'l still have a lot of work and a lot of stress, but that particular event is really creating problems for me. Knee or no, I'll find a way to get in extra exercise, because in my talk with myself, I realized that I am not meeting my personal goals, and people around me are -- by dumping extra work and stress and me and freeing themselves to do as they will. Yep. Time to stand up for myself.

Ella - The complaint has gone all the way up -- and no one cares. They just don't want to deal with it and hope I'll shut up and put up with it.

Have fun at your gig!!! That sounds so cool! emoticon

Ella - thanks for the congratulations - yes I lost my weight on the South Beach Diet. The 5 dogs in a bed would be sight to see. The bowling alley gig sounds fun as well as entertaining. It's good to see you back here.

Leisa- the team doesn't have to be super active it only takes a few of us to make it fun:) I am glad that you are not going to leave the westies and like we said before feel free to vent with no repercussions we all need to get things off our chests and if you can't do it here among friends then where can you emoticon . Have a great field trip with your twins tomorrow I hope the weather holds out for you.

Cat- I hope you days are going better emoticon

Hello friends! After a rough couple of days, I am back.

My husband had to pick me up from work Tuesday in the early afternoon. I was home sick all day Wednesday. I went back to work today but felt pretty crappy. Still not totally sure what was wrong. I felt like I had the stomach bug that is going around at school, but thankfully never got sick sick. I felt nauseous and had stomach cramps, fever, and headache. Strange!

It's good to read and catch up on how everyone is doing.

Beth---It's not a very active team at all. I think that is why I was so jealous of the other one. emoticon

But...anyway...I'm not leaving my westie friends! Y'all are the one and only team I can truly say I am active on and have made friendships. But it is time for me to go cuddle with Jersey. I haven't felt like it the last couple of days and we were both missing it. Going with my twins on a field trip tomorrow if the weather will cooperate and not get icy tonight. Take care friends!

Hello Westie Lovers! I'm been very busy as usual.

Cat, I'm so sorry for all that you're going through. It's definitely not right. Is there anyone higher up you can go to to file a complaint with? No one should have to put up with what you're going through.

Beth, you're doing so well, congratulations! Are you on the South Beach diet? I need to go back on it, the lower carbs seem to work well for me. That and not eating all the bad things! I've been trying to do better. My DH & I each got a fitbit and yesterday I found him on the treadmill trying to get in his 10,000 steps! I'm walking more because of it too, so they're definitely an incentive to do more.

Leisa, please don't leave, we're here for you. We all need to vent, whine, complain and just be our grumpy selves sometimes. This is a great venue to do that at-we don't mind at all! We all need to be here for each other.

Our foster Scottie girl is up on Oklahoma Westie Rescue's website now, finally. She's doing very well and is so sweet! We were suppossed to have a gig to play Saturday morning but we have a chance of snow with very low temps so they cancelled the event. I think we'll sleep in and put all the dogs in bed with us to snuggle for a little bit. Should be interesting with 5 dogs!!

We'll be playing a gig tonight, it's for OU's head football coach's charity at a local bowling alley. We play & march in behind their mascot with the bowling teams behind us. They pay us in food and beer! My DH & I don't drink beer, but we certainly eat!!! It's always a fun time and gives me some activity time with the playing and marching.

I'd better get back to work so I'll sign off for now. Take care everyone! emoticon

Leisa- don't you dare leave Sparks we would miss you so much you are not bugging anyone - if you can't come here to vent then what kind of friends are we anyway? I went ahead and joined both teams to since I got invited to both jut to see what they are all about, but I am still keeping up my blog and doing it with all the people that had signed up with me there and there were some people that wanted to go along with the 100 minutes on the SPAT team but didn't want to add another team so I am having to keep up with them too so it grew a little bigger than I thought it would but that's great. I know what you mean about the early morning barking Bella has been doing that too - I am so tired of the neighborhood dogs I hope they decide to sleep soon. Hope you get some sleep tonight.

Don't give up on your team yet. You have to faith.

Hello all...sorry I have been in a funk lately. emoticon

Cat---I am standing in agreement with Beth that you will find the perfect job for you.

Beth---I did see that you had joined the 100 days to a healthier you team. I was excited to see you join. Normally I send out welcome goodies. Then I got invited to the 100 days to a new you team. When I went over to check it out I was so surprised to see Puppies4me had joined my team, left after a couple of days, and then pretty much copied a good bit of it into the new team. And her team seems to be going very well and is active. The team I started was very active when I started it several years ago. Since then it has had peaks and valleys of being active. It hurt my feelings to see a lot of my stuff copied word for word on a team that is doing better. emoticon Childish? Yes, I know, but it still bothered me. So I am pretty much to the point of giving up on the 100 day team and encouraging anyone still there to go join Puppies. emoticon

Anyway...sorry...I didn't mean to ramble about all that.

Hope everyone is doing well. We had a beautiful spring like weekend, but are now back in the cold days. I am literally counting down the days till spring break. As we get closer to spring I wonder how we are going to handle Jersey. We have tons of squirrels around our house. She went totally bezerk most of the weekend. It's just gonna get worse as the weather gets warmer. Then last night some of the neighborhood dogs were barking from 1-3 this morning! Yes, Jersey felt the need to join in. I've gotta get some decent sleep tonight! emoticon

Yikes! I really am whiney and needy tonight. I am so sorry ya'll. Some days I think I should just leave SP and quit bugging everyone. emoticon

Hi ladies, I'm job hunting and trying to figure out my life. Man, I wish I'd done a better job when I was younger! Maybe it wouldn't be such a challenge now, but I guess we do it right, or we do it again.

Happy Monday!

Think this first one is a trial and error one will see how it goes more wanting to see if I can do if myself and support others.

So sorry you are having to go thru that and then to not have the backing from your boss. That is just wrong in so many ways I can't even begin to start counting them it just infuriates me. I worked for a government contractor so I know that this kind of thing can and does go on from time to time but not as prevalently as it has in the past not with all the sexual harassment training seminars they send you too, but a lot of those were a waste of time because the jerks that were going to do it are going to do it anyway and the bosses that don't have a backbone aren't going to stop them so... I know you don't want me to get on my soapbox so I will stop now, but girl I love you and wish I could come over there and fix it for you I hate it when someone threatens someone I care for (and I feel like you are part of my family). I will pray that he see the light of day and stops it.

Wow, Beth. I guess it's like my gran always said - when we seek them, opportunities are everywhere! I hope you're getting the energy and support from your teams that you want.

Me? I had a rough day. I was sexually harassed by my boss. It's a long story, but basically, the big boss is saying, yes, I know he's a dirty bird, but I'm not going to do anything about it, and it's up to you to handle it. And then, instead of handling it well, I ate .... a lot.

So .... not feeling great and anxious to get over it and attack tomorrow.

Hey Cat - You can commit to exercise or anything you want to, but yes I am committing to exercise.

Leisa - I don't know how I missed your team and then today I got an invitation from someone named PUPPIES4ME wanting me to join their team named 100 DAYS TO A NEW YOU CHALLENGE .....Ongoing. Why none of these came up and the only one that came up when I did a search was the inactive one I don't know must have been the way I did the search.

Beth - I'm glad you're losing weight. I never thought about hair ageing .... I hope you like your new "do"! By 100-day challenge, do you mean committing to exercising 100 days in a row? I saw that, too. Ok - I'm in!

Leisa - I'm sorry you're struggling. Thanks for popping in to let us know. I'm trying to think of something sage to say, but sometimes, it just hard, and all we can do is get through it. I hope things look up for you soon. ... And I'm glad Jersey's a pretty girl. emoticon

It is open anytime for anyone to join. It is not a set everyone on the same 100 day at the same time. It has peaks and valleys of activity. One of our most successful members (SPEEDY143) is currently on day 81 of her challenge. She has completed about 5 100 day challenges. Others (including me) kind of come and go. I did several 100 day challenges before I put out the call to friends to join me. Several wanted to and the team was born. My theory is that if you take any habit you want to make and try your best to faithfully do it (or don't do it) for 100 days it will make a difference in your health.

As a matter of fact you have inspired me to start a new 100 day challenge starting today. I'm heading over to the team page to post about it. Would love to have you or anyone join us!

Hope everyone is having a great Saturday. Ours is a busy one with karate for one son and a birthday party for the other. My daughter is feeling left out so I think she and I will find something to do together. My main goal is to get in some serious steps and enjoy my day with my family. I worked a 12+ hour day yesterday. I am tired of work for the moment and gonna enjoy my day!

Leisa - so good to hear from you I am sorry to hear that you have not been doing well but glad that you are back. Tell Jersey Bella sends her love too she's chilling out on the floor watching tv (well more sleeping than watching). I am starting my personal 100 day challenge, a team March movement challenge and another teams March weight loss challenge tomorrow so I am going to be keeping busy hope I can keep them all straight emoticon . Hope that you are feeling better and when you get time don't forget to update the birthday info so we won't forget you and Jersey's birthdays emoticon .

I wish you had been posting when I decided to do my 100 day challenge and I would have seen your signature that you had a team for some reason when I did a search it only brought up one team that was an inactive team so I put out a blog asking for people to join me. Does your team just accept people at any time. When this one is over in June can I join your team? or is there a certain time to join your team?

Hello Westie friends! I am still alive. I would like to say "alive and well" but I haven't been so well emotionally. It's been a tough couple of weeks. I have just been signing on to SP long enough to keep my log in streak going. The only fitness minutes I have had have been from my fitbit syncing them automatically to SP.

I hope everyone is doing well. Hope to get myself back on track starting tomorrow.

Jersey sends her love. She got groomed yesterday and is beautiful. This is the first time in the 4 months that we have had her that she looks like a true westie. So cute!

Well today was my sons 26th Birthday he surprised me yesterday and came to see me. He told me I was shrinking which was a compliment but he told me I was starting to look old which was not a compliment he told me my hair was starting to look too old he told me to look at my before picture and look at my now picture- he said the quick weight loss had taken its toll and my hair looked old and he was right. So I am going to go get the grey covered so I can look more like my before picture (Hair wise only emoticon ). Jennifer is going to take me to Monroe, LA to get my hair colored. So if it turns out ok I will post a picture on our Westie Wall when I get back.

Any one else have plans??

Ella so sorry that you are sick I hope that you will get better fast. I'm glad that you have all your westies around you taking care of you.

I have only had 7 people who have had a chance to respond to the 2014 birthday list so far hopefully more can get to it soon.
We have missed the following birthdays so far in February:
Sandy (DOCHAS79) 2/7
Jolie Blonde (belongs to AMAS92568-Athena) 2/14
Jake (belongs to BUSYMOM911-Colette) 2/15
