I still need to send gifts to the DS and DIL but other than that, I'm done!
Very early for me, I should say.

Yippee, I can almost feel it emoticon

I am rushing around this week and already feel tired. My first of six recert classes was last night. Thankfully they wrapped up early and I didn't have to stay until 10pm. Up early this morning to have the last class of terminology and take the test. Now a few minutes before work to do catching up and today is our busiest and most hectic of the week. Tonight is yoga and tomorrow another recert class.

I did most of my shopping yesterday up in Lebanon. Even though it snowed all day, we didn't get more than a dusting. Brought my GS to work for a cookie swap (nope, I didn't swap him) so everyone at work got to play with him. I was there about an hour longer than I thought I'd be, but we had fun.
Last of the shopping today here in Newport and let the wrapping begin!

We left the marina we over-nighted in, it was off St. Simon Island in Georgia. We are now at an anchorage in Florida, just south of Fernandina Beach. We are still wearing our winter clothes while sailing as it is not warm yet! Stay warm in NH.

Wow. We got about 8 inches of really really wet snow. Took me about 45 minutes to shovel the small front porch and 16 steps down to the driveway. Good workout. Had to pace myself. Now for relaxation and tree decorating today.

I only got an inch of snow (bf has about 6 in) and then ice and rain but no loss of power. I took two days off so I'm cleaning, baking and shopping tomorrow and Friday. Family party on Sunday so I must watch my portions!
Everyone take care driving

GM, I went out today to go to the store and stopped at Dunkin Donuts drive through to pick up a bunch of stuff for everyone in the house. I got a chai for myself (really expensive as far as calories goes) and asked the guy at the window:

"Can I have a straw".

He said as he handed the straw to me: "No, but thanks for asking".

I've been laughing ever since. Thought you might want a laugh too.

Hi team. We left Myrtle Beach yesterday, without the new pump. DH got a re-build kit and fixed the old one, for now. The new one will eventually catch up to us.....probably in Florida. For now, its good. We are in Charleston, SC for two nights. Got here late afternoon and walked 4 miles round-trip for dinner at an italian restaurant. It was AMAZING!!! On Mondays, its a 4 course meal, planned by the chef so no menu to order from. Every bite was fabulous. Tomorrow, gotta find milk and tissues......

Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.

Son estimates that we got 10 inches of that cold fluffy white stuff. got the (gravel) driveway snow blown twice once last evening and again before dawn this AM... the sun and breeze has the drive clear of snow well before sunset.
Hope everyone had a great "Thanksgiving Day"!!

Hi team I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving with family and/or friends. Ours was good. We are ready to continue the journey south except for the fact that we are still waiting for an engine part to arrive. We cannot leave without it as it is for the coolant pump. Hopefully it gets here tomorrow so we can depart on Saturday......

Surprised the birds this morning... I put the feeders out while it was still dark out there. Usually they are hanging out waiting on me to remember, or just get awake enough to get outside and do my job. Feed the birds.
I bring all the feeders in (or intend to) after dusk every evening, then out again in the morning. My attempt to keep the night raiders (raccoon, and bear) from damaging my feeders...
My mini flock of crows just showed up for breakfast!! They beat the squirrels this morning.

Doris, SO SORRY for you that people there aren't sharing the road. To me, it seems like such a basic concept.

Cheri, GS sounds SO cute (I'm jealous). Anyway, to deal with the cold last year, I used those 360 fleese ear muffs, along with a fleece cap. Between the two, my head and ears stayed warm even though I walked about 30-45 minutes every day. This year, I'm already using the 360 earmuffs, although I'm holding out for the really cold NH weather before breaking out the cap.

Hi team. Went for a run/walk this morning. I must say that the drivers of Myrtle Beach do not know what to do when someone is walking along the side of the road. Two moved over and rest just glared at me. Sheesh.

I heard that it was brisk in NH today. My daughter tells me that if it was any colder the rain would have been ice. We had overcast skies and about 70 today. This was the first day that I can say it wasn't cold out!! Tonight is supposed to be 30. Then, cold, cold, cold still.

Expecting snow and ice into the morning hours. Just enough to be a messy ride into work. Luckily I have good summer tires still but I am planning on putting on my winter ones as soon as I stop working all the time and through the weekends. lol

Yep, we have a depth finder. Works pretty good too! It did tell me that I was in 0 feet of water just before we hit the bottom. I ought to pay attention to it!
Today we crossed the Cape Fear River. The books all said it could be a rough, wild ride but it was just cold. Wore our winter clothes again today.
Stay warm in NH all!!!

Oops. Do you have a thingy that says how deep it is ( depth finder)?

My cohort at work was out sick and they decided that I could handle everything by myself on such a slow day. So I was very busy and managed to finish almost everything. I only clocked out three minutes late but I'm ready to go to bed early, lol.

Anchoring was fine. We had no trouble so we anchored out again last night. Tonight we are anchored again:) I did manage to run us aground this morning though. Good thing the bottom was sand and all I had to do was back up to get off the bottom. Phew.
Its really cold here so you guys in NH must be frozen! We will run the generator most of the night to keep the heater on. I was hoping we were far enough south to be in better weather. Oh well. We are getting warmer:)

Here we sit, at anchor, in Swansboro, NC. We did not go far today as we wanted plenty of time to anchor (our first time) and if we couldn't, wanted enough time to get to a marina. No problems anchoring so far:) We have been swinging on the "hook" for almost 6 hours now. Might be a long night as I am sure we will both get up and look several times. I did buy an anchor watch app for my phone, it is supposed to sound an alarm if we move to far....... We shall see.
Hope everyone stays warm this weekend! Its supposed to be cold everywhere. blech

Wow Janet you are very busy! Glad to see you back here, you were missed.
Costa Rica will be an awesome winter trip!
Someone needs a hottub on a boat, me thinks. lol
Weather here isn't quite 'swimming outside' warm but for a few days it wasn't too bad. I got my chores done outside, enjoyed the sunshine and didn't freeze my fingers off.
I'm out of milk for the second day (skim milk in my coffee). The DD didn't pick any up last night after work so I have to put creamer in it this am. I am getting some after work tonight!
I've been doing so much more walking than anything else now that I go before work. I haven't kept up with my ST so I need to figure out a better way to get that back into my routine.

Hi team. We are in/near Oriental, NC. I went swimming outside today, in an unheated pool:) Kinda tells you what the weather was like today! I must say the hot tub was MARVELOUS!!!! Staying here tomorrow too, laundry and some friends are coming in to visit. We will continue our way south on Sunday.
Have a great weekend all.

Hello to all. I am back after a summer long hiatus. Now that the golf days are few and far between I have to get back into my winter workout routine. My gym closed at the end of the summer but I am signing up next week for a new one and my new trainer will be back in town next week. I gained a bit of weight over the summer. I know many people lose but I am so much more social and on the run in the summer and I lose my focus.
Going to Costa Rica over Christmas and need to shed these few pounds to make wearing a bathing suit less awful.
Hope you all had a great summer
Janet

I hope you've made it out.... A lock sounds very cool.

We moved my daughter into this place, finally! She is still struggling to find a sitter for the time before I get out of work. I have things to unpack too. Hopefully get caught up on stuff this weekend. I'm not getting nearly as much accomplished as I could.

We have been holed up in Portsmouth, VA, just across the river from Norfolk since Friday. The wind is supposed to calm down tonight. I hope it does so that we can get out of here tomorrow. It isn't calm yet! Tomorrow, if we can leave, we will go under two draw-bridges and through a lock that will raise us up 8 feet. Been under draw bridges before but never through a lock. Kinda excited for that!
Happy work week all

It almost seems nice that there is nothing planned in advance because of the weather. I on the other hand love to have things planned out months in advance.
Sounds like your having fun though.
I picked up a 1st shift and a 3rd shift today at the per-diem job so I'll stay here and nap in between but it also means I can spark almost all day!

Happy birthday Cheri! Glad BF made you a great dinner:)

We have made it to Norfolk, VA. Heading into the intra-coastal water-way either Sunday or Monday, depending on weather. It seems like it took forever for us to get here. But, we did run into two fairly large storms that we had to wait out, together, about 9 days of sitting in a harbor and waiting........
Once we get in the water-way, rain should be all that stops us unless we find a really nice area that we want to explore.

Happy weekend all.
Boo!

Both, lol

I went to maine with the bf and spent the last two days winterizing the ds#1 and dil's house. We put plastic all around the skirting and plugged holes and spaces around the doors then plastic on the windows. She is disabled and in a chair so they really needed the help.

So, we have drifted all the way down the Jersey coast and then up Delaware Bay. We plan to go through the C & D Canal into Chesapeake Bay tomorrow. Then, meander down the Ches. to Norfolk, VA and into the intracoastal waterway. We are getting there!

I felt so spot on today. I went on the elliptical before work and then yoga after. I was so much more flexible and had great balance. I left smiling and very content

Yay Cheri, congrats on the new grand baby:)

Yesterday, Bob and I went to the 9-11 Memorial. It was beautiful and horribly sad at the same time. I am glad we did this.
The marine forecast is still for rough seas, so we are staying in NYC until Monday. Not a bad place to have to wait out weather......expensive though!
Happy weekend all.

Some friends of ours drove to the marina this morning to visit. It was fun. They have a car so we went shopping to pick up a few things:) Looks like we will be staying at least one more day as the marine forecast still is yucky. Oh, the trauma. Tomorrow, we will go into NYC!!! I think I have been there twice in my life. DH grew up not far from here so he has spent quite a bit of time in the city. I am excited to see it:)
Happy Friday all

I do hope you keep posting and/or reading! Please don't take offense, We love to hear from you and keep putting in your opinions

I bought a pedometer through work for only a few dollars so now I can keep track on my steps and I joined the walking challenge at work too. So far I'm probably one of the lowest steppers but I enjoy contributing

Hey there NHGRAMMYOF2

Since I don't suffer from an over abundance of self-esteem ... I cannot help but think that my response to your post from a few days ago... somehow hurt your feelings...
Then my other self is pretty sure that I do not have that much power.

But in any case.... with a more personal answer to your question re team activity level.

I get in a routine where I seem to have plenty of time to get on my computer and post to most of the threads on several teams... then all of a sudden I may still have the same amount of time, but I just cannot think of anything to contribute - good, bad, or indifferent - in a post. AND, when threads get real busy,,, by the time I have read all the post.. I am out of time, thus no post from me.. THEN, in either of those cases, I develop the routine of read and go and rarely post...

What tends to get me out of the 'No Post' routine is a slow spell on the threads and a post that gets me interested in giving a response.

I think I have used up my posting energy for today...
Sure hope you will read this and make posting your mission!!

Grey & Rainy = "I want a NAP" day
Hope everyone is having a good day!

I'm not sure why you're sorry either. It's hard to figure out why people aren't very active if they haven't said anything.
I never thought I would do it but I went to work early today and did my fitness at the gym before work. I am going to try and do the same tomorrow.
I am really emoticon loving the warm weather too. We are getting some rain for most of the day Thursday. Strong storm, I guess. What are they predicting for you?

I don't know what happened to the team either. Just post, read and carry on:) No one means to hurt feelings or make someone else feel bad. I am sorry if I have upset someone, I never mean to.

Anyway, walk yesterday to the grocery store.....about 3 miles. My foot did just fine. It was a little sore today but its OK as we sailed through most of the rest of Long Island Sound. It was in the mid 70s and sunny this afternoon and short sleeved shirts were all we needed. A far cry from the winter clothes and long johns on Sunday!

Happy work week all

Well, here is a "new" topic. We left Portsmouth on Monday and are now in Newport, RI. Monday's sail was gorgeous. Tuesday, well, not so much. It was a bit spirited. Stayed in Onset, MA for 2 nights. Left there this morning and into Buzzard Bay, it was fine. This afternoon, we entered Rhode Island Sound. It was crazy! I was very glad that we only had to endure the hairy seas for a few hours. Tomorrow, I think we are continuing our journey south. We would love to spend a few days here but weather says, go before its too late! The seas get crazy in the north atlantic at this time of year.

Hope everyone has a great Friday tomorrow.

Maybe everybody else is doing the same thing???
Reading but not posting???
Then too many are working many hours and it is the middle of the work week,
But then again, maybe people are having trouble coming up with something they think anyone else just might want to read?

I don't know... just a couple of thoughts..

Went to my high school "Class of 60" brunch this morning... it has been a couple of months since our last get together.... I was determined to have a good time and be social... It worked... I got way out of my comfort zone and chatted up those around me. I have spent the first half of my life 'sitting on the sidelines' watching the rest of the world go by... I am determined to push myself out there and if people do not want my friendship.... well that will just be their loss. and I will not lose any sleep over their rejections of me.

Now if I can just remember that for more than a nano-second!!

a houseboat with no motor?

I didn't get enough sleep with working overnight until 7am and trying to sleep before the baby shower. I didn't sleep after it either...sigh...
back to work this morning and then moving, hopefully everything, after work.

A houseboat with no engine came to the marina today. They spent last winter here, summer in Newington and now are back for the winter. It was nice to visit for a little bit. Maybe tomorrow we can visit more as we are finally leaving Monday!!! The marine forecast looks good at least through Thursday.

Cheri, glad you are not in a hurry to move. The rain today was kinda yucky.....

Great progress!

It looks like I won't have the help moving, I thought I would on Saturday. The rain forecast put them off and I'm not on a tight schedule, so I'll try to do most on Sunday. I really haven't brought over very much by the look of my old apt. Stuff strewn everywhere!
I picked up an overnight shift tonight and a morning shift on Sunday plus a full weekend next weekend. I need to get caught up but first I need to sleep.

I believe that it was good thing that we delayed our start south as it would have stunk to be stuck somewhere without running water! Our water pump died. DH was able to get a new one and install it so we have water again. Phew. Now, if the marine forecast would improve.....actually, we plan to leave Monday morning.

I have the day off and started it with a walk with the pup. Our street is one hill after another and I found I didn't have to have as many rest stops as the last time I walked the same distance. Small success!
