Good afternoon. We now have Aaliyah until Friday since neither of us wants to get up at 3:30 to pick her from mom who has to work the 4:30 a.m. shift the next two days. Actually we wouldn't have to wake up until about 4 since she works just a mile or so down the road from us but what a pain to have to wake the baby and the grandparents so early!! Staying with us hopefully we'll all get a good night's sleep.

I DID get the yard finished. I still have some bushes that need trimming but I'm not worried about the-most of it is out back where the neighbors can't see it. I'm just really hoping that my roof withstands any rain and wind coming our way. The costs of a new roof in the state of Florida is OUTRAGEOUS because of all the new hurricane requirements.

Larry is off to pick up the older granddkids-picking up the 16 year old is required and Cheyenne (13) because it may be a wet walk home if the skies drop rain in about an hour. I also have a whiny baby right now so I guess I better stop typing here and take care of her.

Later!

Fog delay??? That must be wicked thick fog! I come from Seattle. Grew up calling it frog because when I was little, guess we thought that's what my mom called it until she figured out we had it wrong, then she taught us it was fog, not frog. However, as long as we knew it was really fog and not frog, it was alright, but then it was fun to call it frog. Say What???! But, we never had fog so thick there was a fog delay. We had multi vehicle pileups on I-5 and I-405 due to the soup, but nobody ever called a fog delay. But knowing Seattle's hellacious cummutes, a fog delay would have made it all worse, if possible.

So question about a fog delay, only because I had no idea of them before this, if you have a fog delay, do you work late an hour at the other end? Or do you get paid for 8 hours even though you work 7 or do you only get paid 7 hours for the day? I know - yak, yak.

Just curious.

Kerry, cheaper to fix males---but they will still vie for who has authority---my male cat shows his dominance over his sister but tearing her up at times---but often she starts it---crazy cats. Good idea to have gramps babysit and you go and enjoy a movie---LOL
Talk about a self cleaning house---asked my dh to organize the fridge yesterday as I knew there were some science projects in there---LOL---I came home to a clean fridge--he took everything out and cleaned all the shelves and organized the whole thing. My training is working--LOL
I have a one hour fog delay this morning---woohoo! Love my fog delays.
Hope none of you get any damage from those storms and stay safe.

Whoa! 2 male kitties. Yeah! I'd get them fixed, too. Otherwise, they'll tear the place apart trying to be king of the jungle, and let's face it, it's a jungle out there! But check out the procedure with a great vet cuz if you do it too soon, it can cause them grief as they get older.

I still miss my kitties. They've both been gone for years now.

KG - did you finish mowing the yard? I looked at the weather radar earlier today, it's coming to you and I think we are really going to be on the very fringe of it. We are right on the southern edge of the cone of probability, if it keeps on the track they show it on now. Hope you are ready for this. Going to be here tomorrow?!

I love your idea for cleaning house!

Our daughter just discovered that they don't have a male am female pair of kittens but two males. She's going to need to them fixed soon. We had lunch together and after taking the two of them home we picked up the teenage grandkids and took them home. It should be a quiet evening for the two of us.

Hello, Everyone! Raining here. The last I looked, we are just on the edge of the probability cone so we will probably be bored here, but it looks like Jacksonville is going to get this storm a lot worse than here. KG, are you ready?

KG, our place is at Sheraton Vistana Village Resort on I-Drive. It's just starting to build up the last phase of it and we've been members for several years now. We love the place.

If you ever figure out how to get your apartment trained to dust and vacuum, please let me know how you did it cuz I could sure take out some stress and whip this place into obedient servitude on vacuuming and dusting. Wouldn't it be nice to come to a clean house that did it's own work? Of course we could always try the open window method. As the storm roars by, you open a window and hope it sucks out the dust, dirt, and anything else you don't want.

Ha! Have a great one, all.

We're starting to get some clouds rolling through but it's mostly sunny today and hot, of course. I wanted to go to a movie this morning/ afternoon since Trish has the day off. But not seeing anything Larry wants to see. Maybe Trish and I should go and let him babysit. ,lol

Glad you found a new instructor. They seem to be hard to find.

Yes, interested to know which one you are staying at. I own at Cypress Palms there but have the point system so can stay anywhere and anytime I want.
Great pool workout last night---we are getting a new leader on Wed. Met her last night.
Finally got my schedule 5 minutes before leaving work last night---how crazy is that.
Got to go---working gal now---LOL
Yes, we all want a self cleaning house!

Okay the mowing is done until next weekend and I am exhausted. I did get a load of laundry started. I also got a message that our dinner group is meeting tonight. Oh, I also remembered to text the finance the numbers from yesterday's count. That's it for today. I think I need to follow Aaliyah's example and take a nap. We'll take her and her mom home about 4:30 when her mom gets off work. Terri, Aaliyah is our newest grandchild. She's 9 months now and is my profile picture.

Lecates: Remember to NOT lock the knees. That will also help, plus the walking around within your area is a great way to add steps and help the knees, too.

I'm planning on heading to Orlando for the week starting on Sat 09.03.16 and ending 09.11.16, Some fun in the sun! Ha! Anyway, we're supposed to, as of this current outlook, get a storm swooping through, if it doesn't change it's direction, while we are there. The place we are going to is a Resort that we belong to. It's not a time share, but to explain it makes you think it's a time share - the differences are, we don't have to go on the same week every time, we can go on just a weekend here and there, we get points we can use later to upgrade or even buy things, like a beautiful swim suit I bought last year at the gift shop and it came with a matching cover-up, and some other things I won't bore you with. But I asked last time we were there if it was "certified" to be able to be safe and stay within our suite if an H came through or could we call and evacuate to the resort from home if an H were coming through. The answer was Yes and they said they would welcome us during any storm because they do have storm plans that ensure safety to members.

It will be interesting. We had this booked a couple of months ago and no idea a storm was going to decide to pick the same week for a visit. The problem with this storm is deceiving. Right now, it's only 50 mph winds, which really doesn't qualify as an H, and barely a tropical storm. But it's already in the hot waters of the Caribbean or Gulf of Mexico and that usually causes the storms to heat up, too, which means they become more powerful, faster, more destructive, and so I'm not looking forward to the direction change that will aim it directly at my house. So I am in the middle of storm prep here. Almost ready for evac, but I need to put some things away where they will be safe unless the house collapses or a tornado comes by and destroys the place. Then, there is pretty much no hope for anything after that.

I've got a buys week ahead, but it is what it is so onward. Have a great day, Everyone!

Terri, good for you---I only get to the pool 2x a week but it sure helps my knees a lot. And with school back in session, if I have had a bad day, just getting in the pool just releases the tension.
Kerry, hope you get that grass finished before you have to start over where you just mowed it---LOL
Looking forward to the pool tonight---hoping I have my work schedule when I go in today so I know what I am doing tomorrow---today is just Freshmen and I have a duty for about an hour and a half of just standing--yuck--I will walk around my area to get in steps.
Have a good Monday!

Welcome, Terri. I think that's what I saw for your name. Forgive me if I'm wrong.
I don't get time on Sunday for the pool with church and the money counting after. Tomorrow I need to finish mowing the yard. Hopefully it won't take as long as Saturday.

Hi. I just found this team and thought I would join you all. I did 90 minutes at the pool this morning .. walking, jogging and doing some exercises for an arthritic knee.

Have a great Sunday.

We had a nice time and I scored some great buys at Christopher and Banks--6 tops and paid $68 for them. It was a nice way to spend my first extra day off.
Moving is tiring work--that is when you really wish you had a pool in your yard to just go plunge into..
Hope you have a nice Sunday.

I didn't it to the pool today. After spending a couple hours mowing I was totally exhausted. The weather was nice when I started but blistering hot when I stopped since I ran out of shade. Now I need to finish tomorrow r Monday.

Have fun with your friend.

I am sure the kittens survived---they will eat when she gets home if they are out of food---that is asking a bit too much with an infant to watch as well as picking her up and taking her back and forth to work. Too bad there is not a Catherine's near by--but you can shop on line for that store---they have really nice clothes for larger size women---my gf was a 4x and 5x gal and we would go there to get her professional clothes for teaching, plus they have casual stuff too.
LOL to the sippy cup---hopefully she will learn that it is for drinking and not for making a mess.
The last 2 days at work has helped me reach the 10000 step goal again--but wish I had the pool today to shake out the muscles.
I have off today and my pool friend and I are going to the outlets and out to lunch---that will be a nice way to spend my day off.
Have a good one!

I made it to class and got my hour then home where Aaliyah and I had lunch while Larry was off to the doctor. I found an old Tupperware sippy cup and put a tiny bit of water in with and put her in the playpen. Everything is wet now but she quickly figured out how to use it. I think it was just more fun to watch it run out of the cup. lol I forgot that before Larry left he said Trish wanted us to let the new kittens out and give them more food. oops. She gets off work in 2 hours and I don't really feel like making the trip twice between now (1:40) and 4o'clock.

Good morning! Glad you got in the workout and steps. I really miss my Garmin which I could use in the water. I don't even know if they still repair them or replace the batteries. Whichever, it has to be mailed away to Miami if they DO still do that. Before I had that I had the BodyBugg which was worn on the upper arm and tracked everything and uploaded to the computer. My trainer was then able to check out how I was doing which was sometimes good and sometimes not. lol

DH was off to pick up our daughter and granddaughter before I got up. I bet Trish was thrilled when he got there that early. She did want to stop at Walmart on the way to work for a larger size Polo and maybe a pair of capri pants or shorts. It's really hard to find anything at all at her size and it's worse when you have to wear certain clothes. Her boss was really nice and said he would get a work catalog for her and she could order online and if they don't fit she can exchange with no extra charge. Speaking of the boss, On Trish's first day another employee got fired. Seems she likes to eat on the job and never pays for what she eats.

I am going to head off to the 9 am water aerobics so I'll be home in time for Larry's cardiologist appointment which isn't until 12:30. That would give me a relaxing evening with water aerobics again tomorrow morning.

Sure hope things go well for your dd--maybe this job will help her with more regular hours--it is hard to be consistent on a diet program when your schedule is always changing.
Back to work I go---will find out what I am doing this year---hope I like my schedule.
Have to go to the pool early today---the instructor has orientation this evening so cannot be there---we are supposed to be back on regular schedule next week---sure hope so.

I sure hope so. She's not one to hop from one job to another which is good. Now if she could start taking care of her weight and health.

Other than cleaning up a little bit and throwing out the meat I was going to put in the crock pot I haven't done anything. I need to put up a reminder when I put something in the freezer to slow cook so I get it in to cool rather than just following my husband when he is heading out to eat lunch. Speaking of going out, I think we are taking Trish out for lunch (or she is treating us to celebrate, who knows?) I'll be happy to have Aaliyah more often emoticon

That is good news---hope she likes this and those hours continue.
Good pool workout last night.
Glad you got those bushes trimmed. I got outside yesterday and swept off the deck and most of the back patio--until the mosquitoes found me--we had rain Sunday evening and they have exploded. It really nice here this morning and tomorrow should be decent, then hot weather comes back for, hopefully, just a few days. I am ready for weather to be like today all the time.
Today is my last day of summer break---going to go get my hair cut for the school year today.
Hope it cools a bit for you--have a good day!

It really is bad this year. I went out and trimmed some bushes this evening-about 6:30 and it was still 97 degrees. Crazy. I had to get the bushes done because I was tired of beating them off to walk down the sidewalk plus tomorrow is pick up day for all yard waste and recycling.

My daughter starts her new job Wednesday morning and will have a normal 9-5 day. Maybe as assistant manager most of her days will be like that.

Good for you---those men need some lessons!
Yes, my friend leaves today---sad to see her go---she has done pretty good this week but still has crying jags at night or can't sleep---and it is okay with me if she sleeps in when she needed to----wish it had been better weather so we could have gone to a few gardens or been outside more. Nicer weather this week---of course, when I have to go back to work---LOL I go in Wed. and Thurs---the kids start next week. I would rather get off earlier in the summer by starting early than starting later and be in school in June when it is nice outside-----I really do hate July and August when it is so stinking hot like this year---this is the worst summer ever! The last summer that was this bad was 22 years ago when my middle son was going to start high school---he could not go out and stay in shape for soccer and boy, did the first day of practice kill him---he couldn't move the next day, but practice was canceled due to hurricane warning so he was able to recoop before the next practice.

That WAS a nice way to end your break. Our grandkids went back to school last week but the school at our church doesn't start until this coming Wednesday. I'm not sure why they waited another week. I remember going back the day after Labor Day and hate to see the kids' summer cut short the way it is now.

I see we think alike because when the guys are acting fed up, etc, I don't make it a habit to hurry out of the pool unless I really have to get out. They act like they own the place. They also have big fits when we turn the hot tub off during class. It sits back in a spot off to the side and the echo of the water jets makes it impossible to hear the instructor. The water is still hot and will help-you just don't have the pulsing jets. They could always join in the class and then so laps and/or get in the hot tub.

Have a great evening.

Kerry, those men need to learn that the world does not revolve around them---LOL Honestly, if I was the instructor and some one was acting up like that, the class would extend just a bit longer to aggrevate him---LOL
Got 4 new tops for school yesterday for $50--today is the last day with my friend---she will leave tomorrow for home and then I go back to work on Wed. Been a nice end to my summer break.

Great shopping!

If she swallowed it, it's sure not bothering her! I had forgotten just how quick a reflex they have at this age. She measured yesterday at only the 17th % for height so Trish has to remind them that her dad is not tall and was barely 5 ft at the end of junior high. Trish isn't tall either, just horribly overweight.

We got a 70 minute class today-well I should say I did since I start moving and working as soon as I get in the pool. The instructor was a bit late and made up for it by working past 10 am. That really makes some men mad when they want to jump in the pool after their workouts. Of course, I think some of them just hate that we have the entire pool for an hour. I keep wanting to tell them to just do an extra 10 minutes or so while working out and all will be well but I know they wouldn't take that well. Oh well.

Good afternoon. I'm cuddling Aaliyah after her doctor appointment where she go 2 shots and a finger prick. Her bandaid came off (with her help) and she was bleeding like crazy so Larry put another on which also came off. The problem with that one is I can't find it. Hopefully she didn't swallow it. I gave her a dish of food and a bottle and she's sleeping now. Of course, I can't look around because I HAVE to hold her. emoticon

Lindsey, good luck with the move---that is stressful---LOL to needing the suit on to wash the dog---my son puts his on when we occasionally need to wash the cats--boy, do they not like that!
Kerry, glad you got that workout in last night. Yes, we think it is stress related but I am sure her mother would never admit she treats her that way---someone needs to set up a secret camera to show her and the doctor---LOL
We did get to OC for the fries and the popcorn, then out to dinner with my mom, then DQ for a meet up with one of my coworkers. I did bring half my dinner home to my dh and have not touched the caramel corn---trying to be as good as possible. Today we are going to a museum and then do some thrift store browsing.
Wouldn't you know it--the weather next week is going to be so much nicer when Joy is gone and I go back to work.

Moves are both exciting and exhausting. Luckily my husband doesn't like to do them at all so we stay put but at our age you never know what's going to happen.

I did get to the gym this evening for an hour of good exercise and fun. I have my 7 am coffee with friends so I need to finish up and head to bed.

Hi all. Sorry I haven't been around much. I'm looking forward to being able to swim again, soon. The last time I was in a swimsuit was when I gave my dog a bath/shower, yesterday. emoticon She is a big girl & I always get soaked. The suit worked well. LOL. We're in the midst of a move & it's very stressful. Will be glad when it's over.

It sounds like she could have some serious stress issues.

I have had a lazy morning-this having a bed to myself makes it real easy to just stay in bed and enjoy the peace and quiet. Now I need to get moving and get some cleaning done around here-I haven't done a lot since we got back from vacation so there is a lot of dust just lying around. I'll have to catch the evening water class today and then Saturday morning since Aaliyah has her 9 month check up tomorrow morning.

Have taken my friend with me to water aerobics---think she has enjoyed it and has helped her knees.
Great that you liked the different workout--glad you did not drown----LOL
Enjoying time with my friend---not sure what we will do today---gd cannot go to OC today---she got sick last night---and OC is just a total junk day and then we plan on dinner out near my mom's house---but I won't do OC on a weekend---so we might leave her home with dh and just go---I have other plans for the next few days so don't want to waste today like yesterday---we were going to take her to the movies but she didn't want to see Pete's Dragon so we came home---and honestly, I was pretty ticked with her yesterday and this on top of it does not make me happy ---she was fine when here so not sure if her mom upset her and caused her to be sick last night---honestly, I think her stomach problems are from her mother.

I only got 1team bonus points today but did have a great aqua class this evening. It was extra long with totally different moves than she usually does. Being an evening class I was in a different spot which was a bit too deep for me especially since I wear my hard contact lenses when I'm in the pool. If I do this class again I may have to buy some goggles or just wear my glasses. I was with a different group of people and we had fun on top of a good workout which is the important part.

yuck-that is definitely too hot for a good night's sleep.

That Red Hat lady is definitely rude-what sane adult would scatter the cards like that? Maybe she has medical issues or beginning dementia? I probably would have been really sarcastic and say "well that was very childish" or something on that line. My mom was a Red Hat lady for a short period and seemed to enjoy the get togethers but then her health started going downhill.

We enjoyed watching Jacob play for the Steelers last night. He made some good moves and tackles so hopefully that will move him up a bit. As a new player he has to fight to get on the permanent roster-they have to cut 30 or 40 players before the beginning of the regular season.

I am sure she would also like to be able to come and go without asking, too. It wouldn't be so bad occasionally but you do have to do it a lot.
Had a semi alright time yesterday--we have one person in Red hats that is just rude ---why others put up with her is beyond me---guess because she has money she thinks it is alright to be nasty---I was straightening out cards near me occasionally and she made a rude comment--then after I put them down, she reached over and scattered them--I told her she was just rude--I don't care if I do tick her off----honestly, I think she does it to try and chase me out---I don't see how she has any friends or are they just hangers on hoping to get something from her?
Too darn hot here---didn't even drop below 80 overnight.

Some people just hate change, I guess. I was talking to Mattie after class and mentioned it-she said "I bet I know exactly who you're talking about" and she did. I guess she just likes to complain. I agree we need to accept changes and work with them-then if we hate it we can move on to something else. I am willing to give everyone a chance and if I really don't like what they do in class I'll just go to a different class. I have two gym locations to choose from. I also talked with Mattie about getting a Silver Sneakers class started at the location nearest my house. We are getting 30+ in the aqua classes and a lot of those folks would be interested in S.S. Mattie is a great teacher for that but probably not the time. Instructors for S.S. and aqua are hard to find.

I made it to my 7 a.m. coffee group and then water aerobics for another hour. Tomorrow I am taking off. Three days in a row was about enough for me. From the looks of the yard I may be out mowing the back. My grandson did the front for me while I was taking our youngest daughter grocery shopping. I'm hoping that one of these days they earn enough money to buy a small car for Aaron to drive to work. I don't mind sharing when we live in the same house but having to drive 3-4 miles through traffic to pick her up or take her home is a pain.

She sounds like a good friend for you---someone to motivate you---great that you have her.
Why do people complain before they give someone a chance? I am sure we will get used to our new one and will help her understand what we need to do to keep us moving.
I had a lovely lunch and shopping trip with my coworker yesterday. Today is lunch with some of the Red hat ladies and then to play Polish Poker at one of their houses. Going to be super hot today---already over 80 and it is not even 7 AM--yuck!
Stay cool today!

We had different instructor this morning and she was great-also very funny. We saw a couple ladies stop at the front desk to complain about the change without even trying the class. Two of us stopped on our way out to make sure the desk knew that we really enjoyed the class. We learned she may be the new regular instructor on Thursday. I do wonder why so many instructors seem to be German or Russian. Maybe it's a Florida thing. Oh yeah, I got my hour in.
The friend with the tickets is a real outgoing person where I will never be accused of that. We met at the gym and had the same trainer so we became workout buddies. That sure made exercising a lot easier and she's a big reason I would mark three trips to the gym. She never did water but we did a lot of class. She pushed me into doing things I never would have done on my own-step class, Body Pump, cycling, yoga... She has also invited me along on some volunteer things. I like being towards the top of her list of fill ins.

OH, what a lovely treat for you--glad you got to go.
New instructor last night--boy, do we need to break her in----she has no idea of what to do for water aerobics---our regular one got married and goes off to grad school in 2 weeks. OH, well, we had to train her, too---LOL

I am back inside chilling---boy, is it hot outside and humidity rising., but we got the deck painted and now it is drying---won't put anything back on it for a couple of days to make sure it is dry with it being humid. Dh picked out the color---cedar---I commented that it looked like it has some orange in it--he got mad at me---LOL---he knows I love orange. Plan on making the pool tonight.
Did you go?

Well, crum. It's after 5 and I didn't get my nails done-where did the day go? I need to look at our schedule and see who's teaching tonight. There are some instructors that just don't give me a good workout at all. There could be a storm here but it doesn't look like it right now.

No pool---sadly---we had to go early if we were going and it looked like it could storm so we just stayed home. Think dh was just tired---we had a busy day. He got up early to go watch our gd until her dad got home, then when we got home I talked him into getting out the power washer and doing the back deck---it took us 2 and half hours with moving furniture off and then the washing--but boy, does it look a thousand times better. We came in and dh took a shower, we ate lunch, then went to get his hair cut and then to Lowe's to get a colored stain to do the deck. We might do the columns on the deck today but our neighbor is going to come over and help us do the flooring of the deck tomorrow morning early before it gets too hot. I got spray paint for 2 of the chairs so I might do them today---if I like how they look I will get more to do the 4 other chairs.
Hope you get to the pool today and get the grass mowed---but if I heard right, isn't Florida going to hit by some pretty heavy rain today---at least the Tampa area?

I hope your knees are feeling better. I didn't get out to finish the mowing this morning and then it started raining so it still needs to be done. Other than watching Aaliyah I haven't done much.

I agree--I don't want it so cold that I an gasping when I do go outside.
Looking forward to the pool today--have to go early--our instructor got married this weekend and no one to take our normal class---we can go early so we probably will go then---my knees need the water.

Getting too cold affects me, too, and it's easy to get too cold when DH wants the room temperature under 75. Outside that would be okay but not inside. At least for me.

You should buy them---I am so glad our small zoo doesn't charge---it is one of the best small zoos in the country---and has a really nice playground at one end for the kids.
AC is really bothering me the past few days--getting too cold from it--think it is why my body is really achy--got too cold on Friday when we sat at the dining room table for games and then for dinner. Hoping meds help me today--took them as soon as I got up as I was uncomfortable all night which made for a rough night's sleep.

I almost bought some zoo tickets through the online site Living Social. They were discounted and I haven't been for a while but didn't take the time to make the purchase. I should check and see if the deal is still on. I ordered a J.C.Penney photo session with prints before Christmas and it was a great deal with no problems.

Most of the mowing was done before 11. The rest will have to wait. Sounds like you had a lot of fun with GD.

Rainy weather does that to you. HOpe you can get the grass mowed early today. Back to hot and humid---but at least it was a decent day yesterday ----we went to the zoo with gd, out to lunch and a bit of shopping, then home to play--she spent some time outside with poppop while I fixed dinner and then we spent fun time out on the porch playing monkey in the middle.
I am tired this morning---not sure if I am coming down with what dh had earlier or just from the weather front moving in on us--but definitely feel draggy this morning.

Good afternoon. The rain has started a little early today so it doesn't look like the mowing will get done. I may have to get that done tomorrow morning rather than get to water aerobics. It's way too hot to mow after 10 or 11. Right now I feel more like taking a nap.

I am glad she got a new job, esp. closer to your house. Hope her hours are better there, too.
Have my gd today so we will be busy with her today. At least it is nice enough to go to the zoo this morning which is where she wants to go--we will go early, then out to lunch and some shopping---LOL---she knows we are easy touches.

I'm not getting a job-my job is the grandkids! Aaliyah's mom applied for and got a job with Murphy Oil. She did a great job looking for a finding something she is qualified and will only miss a paycheck or two between jobs. I was afraid she might get depressed and not look right away but she was right on it. She made a good impression with job longevity (5 yrs with Lane Bryant and 10 with ABC). She has to do the normal drug testing tomorrow so next week she should get info on a start date. I like that the job will be just a mile or two down the road from our house.

I was busy fixing dinner so didn't make this evening's aqua class but plan to do the 9 a.m. with the same instructor. She also does a Saturday class I plan to get to.

Kerry, glad you got in a good workout. And made it there on time--LOL I know I had a good one as I was a bit sore this morning.
Hope you get that office job---I agree, at our age, fast food places would be the pits--although I would not mind working at Chick-fil-a helping customers and cleaning off the tables as they want those people to talk and keep the customers happy.
I have 3 weeks left of my summer break--ready to go back and have a normal schedule again.

Hello, All!

We went to the pool on Monday afternoon. My hubby wanted to go, I had no excuse not to, except I didn't want to, which didn't fly at all, so we went. I enjoyed about 45 minutes of the pool walking and then we came home.

I have gained weight. I know what is doing it, and now I am fighting to get past it - AGAIN - and since I have won that battle before, I know I can win it again, but it takes about 8 weeks or so for me to win it and a lot of coffee to get past the desire for chocolate. I use coffee to kill the desire and it works very well, but I also need to learn how to cut my portions to the correct size. Since I did that before and lost a lot of weight, I know I can do it again. Got out the measuring cups and spoons and I'm trying to make my menu for the days ahead.

Having to plan with what I have on hand.

Went on a job interview. I think it is a job I have done before, so experience counts, and I hope she picks me out of her line up. It would start right away. Thought I might know by 5pm tonight, but maybe tomorrow. Office, full-time, cheap, but it's better than what I'm getting in this area and it's office, which I want, and full-time, and I won't have to drive far or put up with the insanity of fast food joints. Not my cup of tea at all!

Have a great one, all!

Glad the baby remembered her parents---LOL Glad you got the money counted---and yes, set that alarm and get to the pool. The pool did help my knees last night--still not totally alright but don't think I will get back to that level ever again---sigh--but I was able to walk for 20 minutes this morning.

Aaliyah did remember mom and dad and went right to them. No adjustment issues at all for her!

This morning was the church money counting because Elaine and her husband went to the dinner theater after church and we didn't want to count that late. We probably should have-it would probably have been less trouble if the two of us had just gone in and done it because of all the designated things we had to deal with. Oh well, hopefully it's right with the bank.

If I have to set the alarm every day I WILL get to the pool 3 times!!!

Yes, and hope you make it to the pool this week, too. Did the baby even remember her mommy when she got home? LOL
I mowed the lawn on Saturday without my knee brace---dumb thing for me to do---been paying for that--hoping the pool tonight will help with the last tightness in both knees.

LOL, now that is a good reason why not to skip. Does that mean you have to count again or are you still on your break from that?

Wishing everyone a great weekend. I slept in again-I will definitely need to set the alarm for church tomorrow. I can't skip as the minister knows we're back in town since we wound up eating at the same place yesterday. emoticon

I bet, and bet you are going to be so glad to turn the baby back over to her mommy so that you get a break---hope you get back when she has a couple of days off so you can get a real break from the baby---as much as we love them, babies are a lot of work--that is why young people are supposed to have them---LOL
So glad you are getting to see those different people on this trip--nowadays you never know how much longer someone has. I will be working a Memorial service for a church member on Saturday---he will be missed greatly.

Before leaving North Platte we went and rousted another friend out of bed and visited for about an hour. This is a couple 10 years younger than us who were our bowling teammates for several years and catching up was fun. I was sorry to wake her when she works 2 jobs but she didn't want to totally miss us. We are at my sister's and bil's for probably 2 nights so we can spend time with dad then it's off to Florida which will be one or two more nights on the road. Usually it's 2 long days.

That is so nice that you got to visit with old friends and catch up with them. Also good that tomorrow you get more of a break from being on the road. Will you stay there a couple of days to rest up a bit?
Had a good pool workout last night--finally, no storms to chase us out--although one came thru earlier---and totally unexpected, too.

Other than that old midwestern wind the weather was pretty good. We got to North Platte about 3 and were able to get our room early. I put a post on FB that we were in town so our old neighbor came by with her daughter and 2 granddaughters. We lived here for 13 1/2 years and all 3 of our girls were born here. Our old neighbros were Tim and Karen. They had one daughter just a few months before our middle one. Tim died from MS several years after we moved away but Karen and Tami are still here and stopped by the motel to visit. Tami has 2 daughters-one is a junior in high school and the second is just under 2. It was great to be able to visit with old friends. Tomorrow we're only driving the few hours to Lincoln where we grew up and will stay with my sister and brother in law plus spend time with my dad who is 92.

Hope you don't run into any bad weather and when you stop, it is decent enough for the baby to be put down to crawl around some.

We're in Laramie, Wyoming,for the night. Aaliyah has been traveling very well. I hope it's not too horribly hot for the next few days. I'm glad you were able to get to the pool.

Hope the trip home is uneventful and that the baby travels well. Think you will be traveling thru a heat wave in the midwest.
Went to the pool last night---really needed it as my left knee had decided to lock up---have no idea why---got half an hour in the pool and a storm came thru and we all had to get out---and we had 3 newbies trying out the class---not a good way to start them off. The pool did help the knee, plus I iced it and took ibuprofen when I got home.

Yes, I do and you're right about the road construction. I try to stay in Orange Park for the most part. I guess it's time to get Aaliyah ready for bed. We probably have 3-4 days of driving to get home.

Having traveled thru Jacksonville several times, would not want to live with that traffic either. Always construction on 95---at least that is what it seems like. My oldest son lived west of there for a few years---in the middle of nowhere---about an hour and a half from there--do you know what I mean about that area?
Nothing planned for today---except for the pool tonight---really need the exercise so hoping no storms.

I agree . My favorite place was north Platte, Nebraska, with a population of 24 000, here we lived for 13 years and had all our kids. A good job offer then took us to the Jacksonville. Florida, area of 800,000. Yuck

I could not imagine living in a big city and dealing with those traffic issues daily. One of the reasons why I avoid Ocean City in the summer is the traffic, esp. on a weekend--and it is not near as bad as city traffic is normally.
It was a tad cooler yesterday--90 but high humidity---at least the ac handled it a bit better.

I could have happily hopped on a plane and flown home. The drive out of Washington was just as bad as getting to the space needle which was about 40 mph under the speed limit if we were even moving. We're in Oregon now-don't know if there's anything special to do here or if we're just driving through but it will be homeward bound from here on.
