Thanks Gwynn. Hope it works out for both of you.

Gorgeous cool 50's degree weather here, a real gift before the hot, hot, hot Texas summer gets underway.

Cheers!

Thanks. I hope you do connect with her and become diet buddies.

Ironman/texas is today in The Woodlands, so getting around town will be different. We welcome these events bc of the folks and income they bring to our community. Even yesterday the town center was filled with competitors buying food, registering their cycles, and looking around. Great folks. Happy to have them here. They swim, run, and bike on designated areas. Quite an undertaking for the individual.

One of our neighbors has competed for years. He's not doing this one bc he did two last year and they are hard on the body. So he's having a rest this year.

Great weather. Enjoy whatever your day brings your way.

Please send a private message, too, to BECWAL.
It's wonderful that you two want to be buddies. Hurrah for our team.

Enjoy the cool down this weekend. Starting Sunday the Houston area is supposed to have cool mornings.

Perhaps Kitty or Gwen would be able to be your diet buddy. They are both working seriously towards their goals.

I don't have a lot of computer time but I can encourage you as we all will. Reaching goals is not easy, but it is awesome and rewarding and so worth every effort we put towards it.

I'm teaching again today.

Wishing you every success.

Yes, I think you may be able to find a diet buddy here. Read down through the messages and see other gals trying to meet their goals.

My first graders put a book together today on symbols in America. Very impressive work. We did about a half hour working with clocks. I'd show them a digital time and they had to replicate it on their white erasable boards. They are getting very good with analog clocks. Throughout the school the clocks are digital, but they are learning to tell time both ways. Today we worked on relating time in "quarter past, 8:15, etc., and half past or 3:30 etc. Some pages were done in their math workbooks, too. They enjoyed science and art class rooms away from us, and had one indoor recess bc of morning rain, but then were able to blow off steam outside this afternoon. So a productive and fun filled day for all of us.

Tomorrow I am back to the 9th and 12th grade English classes. A teacher's little daughter is sick. I covered for him on Tuesday, and now his little girl is sick. So I'm returning to his classroom. Great day since the kiddos are wrapping up research papers and will be very industrious getting things ready to turn in on Friday. I'll get some knitting done IN school Yeah me.

Is this team still active? Looking for like diet buddies

He longed to become Real, to know what it felt like; and yet the idea of growing shabby and losing his eyes and whiskers was rather sad. He wished that he could become it without these.

I love teaching, so I understand wanting more hours. Subbing is feast and famine. I never know when I get called. I never renege once I agree to sub for someone, but I miss some favorites at times bc I'm already committed. I appreciate pre-arranged dates.

I always am happy to sub. Love my private school kids, and teachers. Win/win.

Have a great day.

Keep your chin up and working on your goals. We're in this together.

Taught 12th grade English today. Tomorrow I'm teaching 1st grade. Both delightful, and fun in their own way.

Thank you. Never easy is right. Since we've hit our 80's, we do tend to lose dear friends. Just hurts each time. Especially this time with a gentleman we've cared about for so many years. My heart is heavy for his dear widow. When our colds are no longer contagious, we'll get over to her for hugs and smiles to lift her up.

Thanks,

HAPPY EASTER
Church was lovely, and inspiring. His resurrection is the bedrock of our Faith.

We lost a dear friend from church today. We met in 1981, and have shared meals, travel, visits in each other's homes, along with love and laughter. They've been married 65 years to our 62 years, and our friendship was deep and meaningful. He was hospitalized after a massive stroke a week ago. His extreme paralysis and bodily functions shutting down allowed them to let him go. He was ready. Still we grieve for a dear friend and his loving widow.

My DH and I both wear FitBits. We love them. They're great pedometers.

Worked in yard a bit, but uncovered two 12" copperheads. Enough!

Morning
We had heavy rain yesterday, too. Clear and warm today.

I'm not hitting my weight goal either, and my doctor refuses to help me bc he wants me to have a little extra for emergencies. I have to do it on my own. Your decision to see a nutritionist to work towards good health is wonderful. I'm sure that will produce long lasting results.

Take care

thanks. just needed to remind myself that i'm doing fairly well even if not making it to 255 by Easter. thought about just keeping at 255 for memorial day but no I think I need to try to get down to 250. otherwise i'll be like the hare and stopping to rest but need to keep going like the tortoise and win the race. it is a very long race. keep going fellow SP friends.

raining fairly hard so did some exercise at home today. yesterday went to gym and tomorrow get to go to class from laughter yoga. that always brightens the day even if we continue to get rain.

Man plans, God laughs!

Jean, glad you got it early and a positive attitude is always a big help. my dad is 91 and doing great. I forget how many years ago that he had a cancer spot removed from his neck but several. wishing you a very fast recovery.

went to gym this morning. had lost a pound which is good but only a week to go and 2.5 # to go to make goal. we'll see but just keep working on it and although I haven't made a mini-goal so far this year, I have lost 17.5 # this year in 14 weeks. i'm happy and maybe it is good to not make the goal too easy.

have a great weekend everyone.

Will see the next surgeon bc pathology report identified cancer in my cheek. I caught t early, so things should go smoothly. Surgeon will set up appointment after he receives lab report.

School was fun today with 4th and 3rd graders. They have learned square dancing steps and were happy to show off. Delightful day. Love those kiddos.

Tomorrow is more of the same.

Stay positive. God can handle this.

Always good to have a Plan B.

I'm recovering from having a blemish surgically removed from my face below my left eye. It's slightly swollen, but doing well other than that. Not comfortable during the night, so sleep wasn't as good as usual. I have to keep vaseline and a bandaid over both sites of surgery so they'll heal from the inside out and not scab over. Doc thinks one of them could be pre-cancerous. If it has progressed beyond that, I'll see a specialized surgeon. He said I "won't die from this." He's been our MD for decades and cares about us. We like him.

I'm subbing Thursday and Friday.

yesterday I used the treadmill in the basement and my hand weights as I over slept and didn't have time for gym

hope all works out for you at work as that doesn't sound right for you to do. it is good that you stand up for yourself as some would just do things they were told and if any trouble then they get blamed. hope you get everything worked out to your favor.

went to gym on Sat. plan to go this morning and need to shop some. I am going to try and do extra work-outs and eat better to try and make it to my mini-goal. was not happy that I was up 0.1 on weigh-in Friday. today it looks like i'm down a few tenths so guess I didn't overeat too much over weekend but didn't do my best. today i'll eat better.

have a great week all...

Seems like only an RN should do the feeding tube. Good to ask before you step in to additional services that were not on your radar before this new training.

Raining here, but not the anticipated storm. Pleased about missing that, but the day is still young.

spent 11 hours yesterday at a group home training in. I am going to talk to my staffing agency about this site -- they want me to pass meds and my agency sends me places where I don't have to pass meds. one of the clients has a feeding tube -- I do not want to do that --

Enjoyed a 2-1/2 road trip to Bastrop, TX this morning and then returned this afternoon. We visited our grand daughter's new rental home. It's lovely and so right for them. Glad we could go. DH and son put a cute plastic jungle gym of swing and slide together for the baby's first birthday next week. He chortled and hummed in his swing really enjoying it. We were delighted to watch his wobbly footsteps across the living room from one adult to another. Such a cute time for the little guy.

We had hamburgers at the Texas Road House in Bastrop. Very tasty. Completely off my careful eating. Yummy to the last morsel.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

I find it hard sitting in a car for long periods of time so if a trip is longer than say a 6 hour trip I would prefer to fly. I have to work 12 hours today

weigh-in day wasn't a happy one. basically stayed the same. if i'm going to make the next goal, I need to get more serious as Easter is only 2 weeks away. probably i'd be ok if I exercised. 10 or 15 minutes isn't enough especially when it is only a couple of days. I am going to the gym more the next 2 weeks for sure.

flying isn't a fun experience since 911. I hate all the new rules where you can't have drinks and take off shoes and so on.... plus it costs more so won't be planning to go unless my oldest son gets his license and will drive us.

have a great weekend all!

Friday's subbing assignment was cancelled. So I got errands run which was good, I guess.

Picked up my Bernina sewing machine that was in the repair shop. Need to settle down and try it out. Dressed in sweater and cords for the chilly morning, but it's warmed up now into the 80's and I have to change.

Long road trips are not easy for us any more either. I'd love to visit my brother in Venice, FL, but the trip should be by air now, and that means we haven't gone since 2015. Missed two Spring trips which were regulars for us when we could do it by car. It's a long tiring trip of 19 hours driving for us. Even splitting it up with one overnight in motel is not appealing. I really miss our annual visits, but flying annually is not in the budget either. Our trips to Michigan have to be flown now, too. Cannot be discouraged as we know it's part of aging, but we miss our little pleasures. Once we get to a destination we have to rent a car, so it isn't just the airfare, but also car rental.

No whining here. God is exceptionally good to us.

Rainy day here this a.m. I will have trouble getting steps today. Guess I can go to the gym, that's the easiest way to get steps without getting wet.
Thank you all for the support on DH's problem. We are working out a different solution for after dinner. Taking a walk would be great, but lately my energy level hasn't made me want to walk in our hilly neighborhood.

Jean, I remember you telling me about your brother's liver disease, but I didn't realize that diabetes was the culprit. That is scary. I really have thought that DH had a denial attitude about diabetes. He has always taken the oral medication, but hasn't monitored it much as his check ups have always given good numbers. Guess that aging can change that. Thanks for reminding me. I'll be pushing for more daily monitoring.

I agree Kitty about driving. 1000 miles in a day is too much road time. I find trips to be very stressful. The increased traffic makes it hard to spend that time driving. It has changed a lot in the years since I've retired. I didn't mind the daily commute, but now I try to schedule everything to avoid Atlanta's busy hours.

Guess I better quit
Sparking.

Diabetes is such an insidious condition.Things crop up and throw the patient off balance so easily. My Dad, grandmother, uncles, aunts, so many of them fought diabetes. I respect it and keep my weight down to avoid the "over 40-over weight variety" that plagues my paternal family. My youngest brother (74 yrs) has stage four cirrhosis of the liver strictly from diabetes. He is not even a social drinker, so alcohol did not cause his.

Respect the disease for a healthier life I wish your darling man many more years of joy with you. I hope he can find another happy after-dinner treat.

thank goodness it wasn't his heart. know that had to be scary and stressful. diabetes is scary enough so hope the change in diet works and he can find a better treat.

I love having a car and hope that I can drive for a very long time but know there comes a day when it is no longer safe. I had a lot of trouble driving the 1000 miles in a day when went to visit family over spring break. not planning to do that drive again. I have driven it a number of times over the years. guess family will need to come visit me.

did 15 minutes pulling weeds this morning and hope to do another this evening. with ground wet from yesterday's rain they pull up a bit easier. if I can keep it up for a while, maybe can plant some flowers. I always say that but seldom get anything planted and have to keep pulling the overgrown weeds. I haven't much love for the work but do like the few times when it looks like a keep flowerbed.

have a great day all

Everyone has been busy on the team. I lost track last week after spending a night (or most of it) and most of following day in ER with DH. Woke up at around 1 a.m. with shoulder, neck and chest pain. It was a scary situation, but was not the heart, thank goodness. After seeing his regular doctor, it seems to have some connection to his diabetes. He's now cutting out frozen yogurt which has been a favorite treat after dinner. Hope this strategy works.

Have a good day, everyone!

Hope you have great results with the new treatment, Gwyn. feel better.

it did pour down rain at just the wrong time as I didn't go to my laughter yoga class today. It was looking and sounding so bad. our one dog is so nervous and barks with loud noise. I put on his thunder shirt and gave him some meds to help clam down. the other dog barks but seems to mostly be in response to Pebbles. I really hate that I missed my class but was really just too bad to go out in if didn't have to.

I understand the reason for the tradeoff as cars are expensive but oh how nice not to have to depend on someone else even a DH. I didn't get my driver's license until I was 23 so had many times waiting for a pick-up from work.

have a great hump day everyone.

Yeah! for good news abut treatment. May your psoriasis be healed as you progress with this new treatment plan.

Thunder and lightning here means we should get some rain. Rather dark and dreary outside. A good soaking will help the spring growth for sure.

Keeping busy today but not walking the mall as DH had to take our car in. We only have one on purpose. It's working well most of the time. I'd love to have wheels of my own again but not the expense of two cars.

thanks. today is a new day. younger son is taking the English I test that he has to pass to be able to graduate. They have a total of 6 tests--biology and Algebra I also freshman year. my older son has passed them all so the only thing he needs to graduate is to pass this last semester. it did take him about 4 tried to pass his English I test but found out before the last time taking that a big problem was if he wrote outside the essay box, he got zero on essay. at least younger son knows not to make that mistake.

I did about 10-15 minutes in front flower bed this morning pulling weeds and trimming bush. it needs so much more work but unless I keep at it, it grows back before I ever get close to finished. maybe will get boys to work on it with me when they get home today. younger son usually spends most of the time standing around complaining but every little bit helps.

have a great day all.

Sometimes when the reality of rent, cell phone bill, utilities, car insurance and payments finally hit, they realize they cannot afford to go out on their own. As long as you don't sign for anything, then they cannot ruin your credit rating by ignoring bills. Reality is not always fun and games.

Scholarships are available for those who work hard even if they are not at the top of their class. Some help may be available for him to start his higher education. Hopefully a school counselor can motivate him to give school an honest effort and see what doors it can open.

My one grandson fooled around until a 9th grade counselor sat him down and really talked to him. It was a turning point for him, and he did exceptionally well in high school. Wishing you happy years ahead.

thanks. one good thing was we talked a little after he calmed down. he said for the first time in a while that he realized he would still need to be at home when he turned 18 (he usually says he can't wait to leave then) but he thinks like a lot of kids do that once 18 they can do as they please but it just doesn't happen that way. I try to tell him that my house is still my rules. since he will only be a junior at 18, I do hope he can stay and graduate. not sure if he will plan to go away to college but that will be ok.

have a great day everyone. no gym tonight since boys have appointments to go to
