Barbie, let me know what you think of the Windows10, I'm considering upgrading to a laptop with a larger screen due to my vision sometimes making it hard to see on the 11" mini laptop I have now, I had to get rid of it as my DH gave it to me for Christmas but sometimes I'm really straining to read the screen.

Amari had a good checkup on Monday, DR is pleased with her growth, even though she was very small at birth which caused concern, she is now moving up into the 30 percentile for height/weight. She's already gained nearly 3#s since birth & is already holding her head up & attempting to roll over. This little girl is advancing too quickly, my how they grow so fast. She's really a good baby, my DD should count her blessings for sure. I've already grown attached to having her at home with me as I get to snuggle with her in the mornings & evenings. But my youngest DD & Amari are going to stay with my oldest DD for the next couple of days to help her finish packing & moved into our home on Friday. I don't expect they will be at our house too terribly long as she's already looking & I know my DD has always loved her independence besides our house is not that big, only 1200 sq ft with one bathroom & 4 adults & 4 children --luckily 2 of those are still in diapers. LOL.

Well got to get started with my office workload, hope you all have a great day.

I had a great weekend. We spent the day at the lake with our church youth group and had so much fun. Yesterday we were both a little tired so we just did a few errands and hung out mostly and called it an early evening. Today I am fighting eye pain and irritation. I am finally getting used to the new Windows 10 and figuring out how to get on spark and leave messages. Yay!

Way to go Fastyfeet for making yourself a priority first thing, great way to start each day.

My 9th grandchild was born 7/31 weighing 5 lbs & 13 ounces, she is 19 inches long. Grandma is still beaming with excitement.

Wow, I know its been a while since I have been talking on here. Can't believe its been that long and its starting to be a habit time to break it don't you think

July was filled with craziness and it is being to be a normal for us, Last month we had my aunt come stay with us and it just keep on dragging on she was looking at houses while she was down. Now its like can you do this can you do that. She invited us to go stay with her while my dad was at camp my mother and I but got pissed that we had other plans and she's calling getting us to do her stuff as pay back. She has to live with drama, Hopefully things have stopped since she is buying the lot close to my parents. She will be here though and we will have drama you may here me grip on here.

Making it a point to set a side some of the morning hours to devote to spark, workouts and me and will do a brief check in later in the day when I can swing it in. Hopefully this will be me being more active on here and losing workout etc

Well DD still hasn't had the wee one yet. Drs are giving her til Monday, if no baby by then, an induction date will be scheduled for that week.
Didn't sleep last night, too much on the brain with anticipation of Amari & stressing over work issues, just can't seem to accomplish anything with the staff shortage, I need another set of hands. LOL.

Counting down the days til our newest granddaughter is born. My DD's due date is tomorrow, the 22nd & she's eager to hold her baby girl in her arms. Everything is now ready for Amari's arrival after I fought with 105 degree temps & trying to install a car seat base last night. Whew, that was a workout. LOL.

I took yesterday off for my birthday (which was actually last week, but my coworker took that day). It was a nice relaxing day, did some housecleaning, got my truck cleaned out from all the sand & even did some shopping. Still haven't found any outfits I'm interested in, just not into the styles in the mall stores, seems to be geared more to the college age crowd, besides I'm a bit modest in my taste of fashion. I did however spend my gift from my coworkers at Bath & Body works, stocked up on my favorite scent, warm brown sugar & vanilla, also got some cream for my feet to use after I do my weekly pedicures. I even started out the day having breakfast with my DD & her 3 kids after she dropped her car off at the mechanics for repairs, then I took her home as the car will have to be in the shop for a few days, good thing she has a 2nd vehicle.

Well time to get back in the work mode. Hope everyone has a great day!

Barb, it was a great birthday, happy to be celebrating my 46th -- I always dreaded the late 40s knowing it was meaning I was getting that much older. But you know its not as bad as I had imagined. I'm thankful to be able to celebrate & have my family & health, those are what's important.

Awww, thanks Vicki, I can always use a hug. It's the one size fits all that makes one feel better. emoticon

Tomorrow happens to be my birthday and also the wedding anniversary of one of my coworkers. Since she is taking tomorrow off, I will take my birthday day off later, probably closer to when Amari is born. So my coworkers are treating me to a home cooked luncheon & birthday cake, since I don't know what's on the menu it will definitely be a surprise but a yummy one I'm sure as these ladies can sure cook. emoticon
My DD is FINALLY starting to look like she's pregnant. LOL. She's only gained 10#s but seems to have popped & dropped all at the same time. Her due date is soon arriving, I tried putting a hint in that the 10th would be a great day for Amari to be born since she would share a day with her Nana. But something tell me she is going to be a little stubborn like her mom. Ha Ha!

Hope everyone has a great day

Still issues with the internet, too many other obligations to worry about at the moment with trying to finish paying 2013 takes so we can file 2014. Seems we work to pay the government with nearly nothing to show for ourselves.
Didn't sleep well again, I guess my brain knew it was back to work today. It was nice getting off at lunch time on Friday & having the weekend with no obligations. We didn't have a family cookout like usual, just too much expense feeding 20 head with limited funds at the moment. Kenny & I visited the beaches & some State Parks taking photos & people watching, we had a great weekend, could have been better --missed having our family together.
Wishing everyone a fabulous day.

Had a long day of 11 hours at the office yesterday, looks like today is much of the same, of course having a "non sleep night" last night will make for a very long day, even more so. Kenny is off W-F this week, so I'm hoping I can take one of those days off with him, probably shooting for Thursday as I still have some things that have to be done from when I was out on Friday.

Hello everyone!

Well I am back finally. I thought that I would be back before this. Computer has been very wacky. After having it fixed twice now What it cost to fix the computer I could have bought a new one almost.

Debbie, enjoy the reunion, a fruit salad is always a healthy option. I'm sorry about your kitty, it's amazing how animals can sense something's wrong & come to your aid for comfort.

Woohoo! It's Friday Eve, finally, getting closer to the weekend. It's supposed to rain again today, it's sure making for a lot of wrecks to deal with. My goodness these people can't drive in the sunshine much less throw in some precipitation, I guess that's why the county I work in has a standing record for the past 9 years of having the most accidents with injuries out of the entire 100 counties in the state. No plans today other than to get through work & home to fix supper --not sure what yet, but it will be something with porkchops since that's what is thawing in the fridge.
Have a great day.

Hello everyone!

Welcme to the team Susan!

That is great news Donna. I go to see my Dr this month for A1C check. I am pretty sure that my Dr will be happy with the improvements I have made.

Family Reunion this Saturday for just one day. I am making a fruit salad for the reunion.

On a sad note my sweet 17 year old kitty passed away last Wednesday. I miss her. Katie and the other animals are trying to make me feel better.

We are having monsoons here. LOL, we at least it seems that way, it's raining as if a hurricane was over us. Ha Ha! Glad today is humpday which signals the work week is 1/2 done. Yayy. So excited, Saturday we will be going to our oldest granddaughter's dance recital. Can't wait.

Hi!

I'm new to this team but I wanted to pop in and say hello. This looks like a great team and I'm looking forward to learning the ropes so I know what's going on.

Beautiful day here in Newfoundland, Canada. I went on a solitary walk today but am now on our back deck with our three dogs.

Woohoo Debbie, congrats on the weight loss of 7.25#s. You are doing great.

I had my 3 month checkup with my Dr, she was pleased with my glucose #s I've been tracking, but wants to wait til July to check my A1C since we just did that in April. She was pleased overall, even BP was really good. I love those kind of visits.

Hi everyone!

Well it has been a pretty good week for me. I went to my TOPS meeting last night. I have lost 7.25lbs since Feb. I honestly believ most of that loss has been in the last 4 weeks.

I hope everyone is doing well.

Debbie, that's wonderful that the new plans are working with your BS levels. Keep up the good work.

My BS#s are steadily improving, my last A1C checked showed an improvement from 9.1 down to 7.9. I go back to the Dr tomorrow if not sure if she will be checking A1C, but if so, hoping for another drop.

Hello everyone!

Donna, it is good to be back. My BS's are still showing improvement with my new meal plan. I just have a hard time believing that I didn't think of it myself. Well I have found it now and it works.

I am looking forward to the June Challenge and hope to see everyone there.

Hello everyone!

I just wanted everyone to know that I am back from my trip to New Mexico. I had a good time visiting with my two sisters. I also managed to get my my outlook on my health back on track. My blood sugars are lower and have been getting my eating under control. I am going back to TOPS this Thursday for the first time in several months.

So this break from the stress and grieving process of losing my neice has done me so good. I am back and plan on staying.

Mimi,I'm sorry to hear about the anxiety panic attack, I hope the Dr is able to get you back to Normal (I'm still trying to figure out what normal is for me). Take care of yourself & try not to overload & worry, they say worry is like a rocking chair, it occupies your time but never gets you anywhere.

A lot of people can deal with life stresses and can keep going with most of every day things. It may be hard but normally you can still function. People worry but others don't notice.

Well for me it became noticeable not to long ago. A few months back ( at the time I wasn't aware) My thoughts started to chance. I started having negative thoughts that I could not shake. Asking everyone if I did something and or mad at me. Some days it was better than others. Next thing I knew I started panicking over if I could not reach either Bryan or my mom on the phone. I would drive myself crazy. Could not breath hot and cold shaky heart beats fast

A few weeks ago I start panicking over some stupid stuff we were planning our trip to help and my aunt pack since she is moving . My mom usually keeps our neighbors dog and I was panicking over that. Than I started panicking over my other AUnt brining her dog and staying with my mom.

It all came to a head when we were coming home I starters hyperventilating crying for a few days having all my symptoms that I have been having and I was starting to be scared of being alone.

When the doctors office opens I went straight there I had to do something. He said it was an anxiety panic attack and put me on anxiety meds. I go this week for a follow up.

A little back to normal with my daily activities doing what I can right now

Debbie, so sorry your niece is nearing the end, cancer is brutal & heartbreaking, often strikes the ones we would have never given a thought to having to say goodbye at such young ages. Thankfully your CT scan has a good report, definitely a reason for thanks & to live life to the fullest. We never know when our time is up.

Hello everyone!

It has been a week or two since I have been on. I have been down visiting my neice as often as I can. Unfortunately the end is approaching. She isn't able to visit because of the pain meds she is on.

I went in for a follow up CT scan for my cancer screening. Fortunately it came out clear. I am still in remission. It feels bad to have the same type cancer as my neice and I am in remission. Just doesn't seem fair.

I hope everyone is doing well here. I will try to keep in touch a little more often.

Nancy, I hope you are feeling better & not so sore from your fall.

Colleen, so nice to see you again, I wish you all the best on your goals to get to your goal weight for your vow renewal. Congrats!

Debbie, I'm so sorry to hear of your niece's condition. Cancer is a horrible nondiscriminating disease. My prayers go up for your family.

I've been really busy with family, work & church, not much time for anything else lately. Our DD is living with us temporarily so I've getting to see 3 of my grandkids on a daily basis, so much fun.

Hello my friends!

I came home yesterday evening after spending the weekend visiting with my neice and the other members of the family. She is in a good deal of pain. They put her on methadone for pain. It does seem to help take off the edge of the pain. Her husband is working hard to get their new house built. So she will get a chance to live in it. We still don't know how long she has. We have to take it day by day. I will be going back down later this week.

I won't be in April's challenge do to my comings and goings to be with my neice. I will keep in touch with everyone here.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.

Donna, glad to hear that your parents will be closer to you. I'm imagine that all you will enjoy it.

Debbie, so sorry to hear about your niece. Thoughts & prayers are with all of you.

I slipped and fell today. I hit a slick spot in the mud...and my feet were out from under me fast. I don't think I've ever hit the ground so hard. I had jammed my thumb a week or so ago...well, I managed to land right on it. I am not one to cry easily, but, I did then. As I just sit there...first thing that came to mind was....as hard as I had hit, I should have jarred off 10 lbs. Don't imagine that has happened. Even if it did, I wouldn't recommend it. I had to take 4 cans of chili beans & 2 cans of rotel up to my daughter for her to open them. I can't use the thumb with much pressure. Will watch it and see if I need to do anything. Only thing is, now it seems I'm bumping it on things. Oh well, life goes on. ...........

Hello everyone!

Donna, I am not sure when I will be back full time. I need to get make some changes with me and get back on track. I also got news that my neice Kim is not expected to live much longer maybe a month or so.

I am taking off Friday to go and spend some time with her and give her mother and husband some hel with her.

I will do my best to keep in touch from time to time. If I am home I will try to get in to the chat room as often as I can. I imagine I will be spending a good deal of time down with my neice.

Hello everyone1

I just wanted everyone to know that even though I have stepped down as co-leader of the A^I Team. I will continue to support its memebers and leaders. This is the best team I have ever belonged to and consider all its members my friends.

I am just going through some rough times with personal issues that is demanding more and more of my time. So I won't be able to be on here every day as much as I would like. I will be on as often as possible even in the challeges when I can. I hope that maybe in a couple months. I can be a more active member again.

I do know that Cathy, Barbie, Barb. Linda, and the others will take good care of this team. As they have done for the past two years. When my health issues flared up.

I hope to chat with you all soon.

Barb, thanks for that colorful post reminding us to eat healthy in March, a beginning of new habits.

I started out the month taking DH to Urgent Care today, thought he had the flu, turns out it's just a viral cold, not month to do but treat the symptoms. He's taking Coricidin & Tussin, not much out there he's able to take being a cardiac patient. Resting at home this afternoon, just enjoying some down time for a change & catching up with my Spark buddies.

Oh my goodness, where has the month gone, can't believe today is the last day of February.

Up earlier on this Saturday morning, while Kenny is gone to work a 1/2 day, I'm heading into the office to catch up on some stuff. Lately we have been so slammed with walkin clients not to mention phone calls we just can't get any of the workload done during office hours. Hopefully I can put a pretty sizeable dent in the workpile.
Blood sugar has been up lately, no I can't imagine why. LOL Between worrying about my parents health & stress & work, I'm sure that has a lot to do with it.

Hope you all have a great day.

Amy, do get that pain checked out, yes sometimes our bodies have a strange way of reprimanding us for the way we are taking care of (or not) it.

Last Sunday was warm but rained all day, hoping we get some weather to enjoy outdoors this weekend, even for part of a day would be nice.

Well I got a little more not so good news...my sister called, and that usually means something is not right with my parents. Apparently Mom has been having issues with her heart ---they've not said a word of this to me. So anyhow the drs ran some test but plan to run more today, but the initial finding is they believe she has angina. I'm praying there's nothing more serious than that, as that is enough. My parents are still young in my eyes, mom is only 66 & already has other issues to deal with --LUPUS, IBS, Fibromyalgia --not to mention taking care of my dad.
Hopefully tomorrow will be the final Saturday Kenny has to work. He's been working about 60-70 hours a week for the past month & now is having pain in his elbow, probably from overuse I would imagine. If not better in a week, he will go have it checked out.

Have a great day.

Donna, hope you enjoyed the weather over the weekend! It was glorious here, in the mid to upper 70's. We went golfing on Saturday and to an outdoor craft show on Sunday. This week has been slightly cooler and dreary/rainy. I'm supposed to golf this afternoon if the rain holds off.
Hope your sleep has been better the last few days. Recently I have been trying to listen to an audiobook in bed, and that usually puts me to sleep really quickly!
That's a great deal getting the free oil changes and tire rotations on your truck. We take our Jeep in for service on Friday. It's crazy in Florida without having state inspections every year. I think a lot of people drive their vehicles with lots of things wrong with them. We couldn't do that in PA.
Sad about the family that lost everything in a fire, but it's amazing how many giving people rally around those in need. That was nice of you to donate some of your clothing.

I finally got back to the gym today - last I was there was last Wednesday what with visitors late last week and then not feeling well early this week. I got severe pains below my right breast and into my back on Sunday night. After talking to some neighbors on Monday, I realize it was a gall bladder attack, which I never had before. I called the doctor, but won't be going in till next Monday. The pain has gone away, but I'm very nervous about it coming back, so I am being very careful about what I eat. That's a great way to stay away from the fatty food, right?

Hope weather is warming up for everyone with signs of spring ahead! Have a great rest of the week!

Amy, yes I am for sure ready for Spring. This really has been the coldest winter I can recall. Normally I seldom have to wear my leather coat, but it's certainly got it's usage this year. We made to 55 today & expecting 64 tomorrow, but a cool down to the 40s by Monday. Crazy weather we are having.

Sounds like you've been playing entertainment hostess. As least the temps weren't as brutal as in other places. Glad you had a good time with your friends.

The insomnia fairy must have visited my place too. Just tossed & turned most of the night. Kenny had to work again today & I had a busy day as well. I took my truck into the dealership service center for my complimentary oil change & tire rotation. When I bought my truck last summer, part of the package was 3 free oil changes & tire rotations. So I have one more to use up before August. Came home & got my housecleaning done & am working on laundry now. Trying to figure out what to have for supper, nothing seems to strike my fancy at the moment. Also got some shredding done & have packed up some shirts & pants that I don't wear to donate to a needy family ---a family of 4 lost everything in a house fire Thursday. So sad but it sounds like lots of people are helping out with various donations.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

All the cold and snow and ice must be getting old for so many people. It's close to the end of February now....time to start warming up with spring ahead. We even had some cold weather here in central Florida. Yesterday was the coldest day due to the wind, down below thirty overnight. I wore my recess duty parka to take the dogs out for their walk yesterday and this morning. Dave's cousin was visiting us from Lake Tahoe and we had to drive her around to show her things instead of taking the golf cart or walking around the squares. Today was better. One of my friends from PA was here and we were able to walk around as it got up in the 50's. This weekend will be beautiful up to mid 70's again!

Donna, binging on snacks is challenging for me, too. Tonight I am doing pretty well. I allowed myself a sugar free pudding with half of a banana, a few peanuts and mini chocolate chips and a squirt of whipped cream. I mostly have cravings for salty carbs though. My weight has been up and down the same two pounds. It must be hard to lose on the prednisone.

Lesley, thanks for posting the snow pics on your blog. I sure hope the snow will be melting soon, but not all at once and cause flooding. I can imagine that it was hard to get back to work! Hope your ears clear up, so you can get off the prednisone and have a good night's sleep. I have heard House of Cards is a good show. I will have to check it out on Netflix.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Lesley, hope you find your mojo as you get back into the working swing. It's always hard returning after being out for an extended reason. Hope you get some rest. I do remember what sleepless nights I had when I was on the prednisone when I had strep & sinusitis. Hope you recover quickly. I'm sure you are excited to have a snow reprieve. I've been seeing the news reports of the snowfall amounts & cold temps up in your area, hopefully you will get a long reprieve & being able to thaw out a bit.

Yesterday was quite a treacherous day in our area. Normally our high this time of year would be in the 40-50s. The main bridge connecting the 2 counties that many have cross everyday had 8 major accidents on it yesterday, finally law enforcement closed the 4 lanes down to 2 forcing people to slow down & limit traffic flow on the bridge. We had chili for supper, it was a good choice for such a cold day, we only got up to 33 degrees & it was expected that there would be lots of black ice this morning with the nighttime temps dipping to 23. So far the roads I've seen were ok, but I'm sure the northern & more inland areas may have some slick roads, just praying everyone remains safe on the roads.

Good morning,

It is back to work for me after 10 days away this week, and it is hard getting back. I have had an ear problem that they gave me prednisone for, and that is causing me to not sleep. I feel like I have a hangover every morning.

I posted a blog with some snow pictures. We have a little reprieve....supposed to have had a couple inches last night, but it missed us, so nothing and a few days free, just cold.

I have never gotten into Downtown Abbey, I am trying to catch up on House of Cards right now before season 3 starts next week. Its on my list to binge watch at some point though.

Okay, time to go to work.

Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomfort.

Amy, I love Downtown Abbey, we watch it Saturday evenings before turning in for the night. Those characters on their are a hoot! LOL. Glad you had a nice time on Valentines, it's good to get together with friends & play games, just a time of fun & relaxation ---it's good for our hearts.

The BS is coming down, although it was elevated this morning, but I'm sure that was due to binging on snacks last night --this would normally be my PMS week where I mindlessly snack. Overall I feel ok, slept decent, woke up a couple of times but was able to drift back to sleep. I ended up gaining 5#s with the prednisone, so I've got work to do, starting with cutting out the snacking late at night. LOL.

Many of the inland county schools are closed or on delay with the anticipation of ice/snow which we don't normally get around here. It's better to be safe than sorry with those precious lives. It was weird, when I got up @ 5 to start getting ready for work it was 59 degrees & rainy, it still rainy now as I'm at the office but the temperature has already dropped to 33 degrees. Hopefully no icing of the roads as the day wears on.

Lesley, I'm sorry to hear about your MIL. I'm glad she passed away peacefully. Thinking of you and your family! I can't believe how New England and especially Boston keeps getting dumped on with all the snowstorms and blizzards! That's unbelievable that the National Guard was called in for some of the snow removal - it must be a sight to see! I hope you have been safe and warm! Do you have off for Presidents' Day or are you back to work today? I hope the road conditions and traffic will be getting better soon! Do post pictures on a blog if you have time! I understand about you wanting to retire where there isn't any snow. I still am feeling guilty when we have a day like today up to the 70's here in central Florida when it is so cold up north (I am from PA.) I will be calling my parents soon, and always downplay the great weather here.

Donna and Lesley, even when retired, you may still wake up early. It's rare for me to be in bed past 6 AM, and this morning I woke up at 4:55! I got up at 5 AM during my work years. I like to get things done early, including my exercise. Now I usually go for my morning walk at 7-8 AM. This week I am walking later with hubby, since my walking buddy is having trouble with her leg.

Donna, glad your hubby had a chance to relax last night....wow, those are some hours he is working! He must be exhausted. I understand why you go out to dinner so much! Sounds like a delicious Valentine's dinner! Chocolate lasagna - oh, my! I never heard of it. What is in it? Sounds yummy! WTG on your weight loss and lower BS. Dave is doing better with his BS than it had been and he's already lost 7 lbs in two weeks, cutting back on carbs and no alcohol.

Well, I'm having a much better day than yesterday. On Valentine's Day we golfed and then were together with friends for dinner and a night playing Apples to Apples. Had a lot of fun, but didn't get home till after midnight and then was up early and felt exhausted all day yesterday. Just laid around all day watching TV shows on my laptop (got caught up on Chicago Fire and Downton Abbey.) Today I feel better and am back to my routine of walking and going to the gym, plus I always strip the bed and clean the house on Mondays. Speaking of which, I just finished my salad for lunch and wrote this...now I gotta go and get more things done! I am playing Mah Jongg at a neighbor's house tonight.

Lesley, your day sounds like mine. I'm up @ 5 & usually get a load of laundry done & lunches packed & then at the office by 730, of course the other agents are supposed to be at work at 8 but don't get there til 9ish with the heavy traffic that time of morning.
WHat a small world, I actually lives 20 miles west of Wilmington, but feel like I live in Wilmington since that's where you will find me m-f, I work on the southern side of Wilmington.
We normally don't have much of a cold winter but definitely getting it this year. Today our high is 35 but with the wind gusts the chill factor is in the single digits. We usually only get minimal snow about every 2-3 years, nothing like what you are getting up in Boston, actually my co-worker's son lives in Boston, too funny how small this world is.

FInally getting online, hopefully it will work all day as I've got lots to catch up with spark & needs to download my weekly coupons & get those printed, need to replenish my coupons. Heading to church with DH, thankfully due to cold temps the deacons opted to cancel the night service as our church is mostly senior folks. It's going to mean DH gets to catch up on rest, he's been working 60-70 hours a week at his main job for the last 2 weeks, looks like he's going to have to do this for another 2 weeks.
We had a great Valentine's dinner last night with steak & shrimp on the grill, baked potatoes & tossed salads. For dessert I made a Chocolate Lasagna, oh my how delish! But I know we will never eat it all, so I've dished up most of it & taking each of kids some of it.

Have a great day.

Congratulations on losing! Stinks to have had to be sick, but a loss is a loss no matter how you got it... emoticon

Glad to hear the BS is dropping. Keep up the good work. emoticon

I get to work early - that is why I am up at 4am. No one gets in the office until 8, so I get a nice quiet hour to myself and get more done then most often than in my full 8 hour day!

What part of NC do you live? We have friends in Wilmington, and relative that just moved from Apex to FL. We are actually taking a ride down there this summer to check out the coastal areas like the Outer Banks to retire to. I can handle the cold temps that you say you are having, I am just really sick of the snow. Another couple of inches coming tonight, and then Sunday - another foot. I'll try to grab some pictures and post.

Have a nice evening!

Lesley, oh my, that's a lot of snow, it's amazing how we take for granted the weather is different areas. I hope you have all the necessities at home to get you through until the roads can be cleared.

THe weather is a little crazy, yesterday 45, today 61 & by Sunday 35 --yes these are daytime highs, a little weird for NC. I worked late again last night, it's amazing how much work I can get done AFTER the office closes with no more phone or walk in interruptions. LOL. Hopefully today will be a normal 730-430 workday for me. I do need to run by the grocery store at some point, DH is requesting salad for supper, so I'm thinking I'll make us a nice garden salad & serve with a grilled salmon filet on the side. Easy, quick & healthy --doesn't get any better. emoticon Blood sugar steadily dropping, I'm eager for the morning when it's below 100 again. I do have a emoticon to share. I had lost 15# before getting sick but have gained 4#s back. Yesterday, one of my coworkers came to me and asked how much weight I had lost because she could tell I was thinner, she figured it was about 20#s because she could even seen shrinkage in my face/neck area. She made my day. emoticon

Good morning,

No warming in the forecast. Today 20's and flurries. Tomorrow into Friday teen's and 3-6 more inches, and then temp drops to single digits and another storm on Sunday, but temps are back up to the 20's. National Guard is out now, trying to use equipment to remove the snow - especially from the corners of the roads so you can see out. Boston is esp hit hard - they have approval from the EPA to dump some of the snow into the harbor. Public transportation has been brought to a halt which means everyone is driving into work, and now there is gridlock around the hospitals - so bad that it takes 1 hour to move 1 block. Hopefully when I get back to work next week, the jet stream will move and we will no longer be in the snow belt.

Have a great day!

Lesley, I saw some pics of the heavy snow in Boston & wondered if you had that much snow in your area, one of the cars in the pic, you could barely see the roof of the car, the rest was covered by snow. Hope you get some warming temps to melt all that snow.
I'm so sorry for the loss of your MIL, as much as I'm sure you miss her, there's a peace in knowing she's not longer in pain or suffering. Sending emoticon & emoticon your way.

Amy, If my DH had his way, we'd eat out everyday. He is on the road so much with his job, we rarely get much time together so he just as soon eat out so no kitchen mess to clean up. LOL
That meal you & Dave out with the Salmon sounds delish, I love salmon, we actually try to have it at least once a week. You did good avoiding the high carb options --alcohol & bread, as I know that was sure tempting. emoticon

I ended up working late last night. I missed 1/2 day on Monday taking DD to her oral surgery consult. I don't want to get docked for 1/2 of a vacation day so I'm working longer days this week to make up the time. It's just too early in the year to be using vacation time, besides I've already used all my sick leave for the year when I was sick a couple of weeks ago.
Been having issues getting my antivirus renewed. It's been paid for since the week I was out sick, but having issues getting the download due to a slow connection & issue with the product key. So hopefully I can get this finalized & get my computer protected before any virus decides to attack. LOL.

Donna, hope you are having a great week so far! The party and banquet sounded fun. We can learn from 2 year olds, who find other things more interesting than gifts!

You and I go out to dinner a lot, but we are making good choices! The shrimp Mexican dish you had sounds delish and very healthy! Last night we went to an Italian restaurant with seven friends and Dave and I did so well. I didn't have any alcohol, bread or pasta, which is hard to do with a bunch of friends drinking wine and passing around the bread basket! Dave and I both had salmon piccata with rice, veggie medley and a salad. I had two tall glasses of water. We took a big container of leftovers home between the two of us.

It was rainy here yesterday afternoon, so a bunch of gals went to see the movie, Black or White. Love Kevin Costner and loved the movie.

Hi all,

Just dropping in to say hello from cold and snowy Boston. We currently have 5 feet of snow in the yard and more coming Thursday, Friday and Sunday. This has literally brought Boston to a standstill.

MIL passed away quietly last Thursday. She is now at peace - no more pain, and she is with her husband who she missed very much. This week is now being spent trying to get things sorted out and back to normal.

I hope you are all doing well.

Amy, what an amazing sounding lunch, very light & healthy & you even got to see you son, how wonderful it made the day I'm sure.

The party was great, It was a small one, just their family here in NC & their maternal grandmother & a cousin than came with her from MD. The girls got lots of stuff, several baby dolls, clothes, a wagon to share & misc. Of course, Weslie the 2 year wasn't interested in opening her gifts, she opened one & was done. LOL. Audrey ended up opening hers & her sisters gifts. I even got to hold baby Silas, of course he slept the whole time, he's not quite gotten the nighttime sleeping thing in order yet.
The Banquet was lots of fun. We had steak (Chicken for those not liking steak), baked potatoes, green beans & a roll with tea or lemonade. Some of the ladies had brought in homemade desserts ranging from a Triple pudding dessert to various poundcakes. I had only a few tastes of sweets, just enough to satisfy the craving. We also played some games & I ended up winning a candy dish shaped like a heart & also a decorative stone for a flower garden.
Today we went out for Mexican, I had the Camerones San Jose which was grilled shrimp & steamed veggies, rice pilaf, lettuce/tomato side salad with sour cream drizzled. I ate the salad & shrimp & only half of the rice & veggies for a light lunch.

Can't believe the weekend is almost over, have a fantastic week.

Donna, Sounds like you had a healthy, fun, and balanced day yesterday with a mixture of activities. I bet you miss having your Saturday with DH though, unless you like some alone time. I don't get that much anymore since Dave is retired and here all the time! LOL How was the birthday party and sweetheart banquet?

Great job getting a good night's sleep! Hope you had another one last night. I didn't sleep well Friday night after I got my second wind - I was up till 1:30 AM and then woke up at 5:30! But I made up for it last night. I fell asleep while typing on the computer and then went to bed by 11 and got up at 7. The frustrating part was I forgot to get my last 100 steps in to reach 10,000, which messed up the streak I was on for the month! Oh, well! I know I had my tracker off for a little while after my shower, so I know I really made it! Funny how we get caught up with numbers!

It has been beautiful here this weekend, finally sunny after some dreary days this week, and today I feel spoiled since it is going up to 73! Yesterday we golfed in the morning, but my allergies were bad and I kept getting vertigo when I bent down to put the ball on the tee...it made me light-headed and a bit nauseous. When we got home, I took my blood pressure and it was really low so I rested the rest of the afternoon, got some sunshine by reading on the lounger out on our lanai. Dave and I went to dinner at the restaurant where our son is a server, and we got to see him bustling around - it was really busy there. I had grilled scallops, rice and broccoli - no alcohol again, so I did really well. Not sure what all we will be doing today, except for a morning walk and then I'm going to the gym for a yoga class.

Have a sensational Sunday!!

Amy, we gals need a fun , shopping day every now & then. Glad you had the opportunity to go & have a great time. Good job on saying no to the alcohol & being able to stay home for the evening with your sweetie. UH OH....you got your 2nd wind, now what is in store for the weekend? emoticon

DH has to work today & the next 2 Saturdays, so he won't have a day off til near the end of the month, we don't count Sunday as a day off since he is a Pastor & his Sunday is busy with preparing & delivering sermons at church & any other church meetings that may arrive. I ended up sleeping in til 8am, so feeling pretty rested since we were in bed before 10. I have the housecleaning all done, have a couple more loads of laundry to finish, even made myself a healthy spinach omelet for breakfast. Now catching up on some Sparktime & relaxing. The late afternoon will be busy with going to the girls birthday party @ 4, then we have a Church Sweetheart Banquet @ 630, a fun but busy day.

Have a great day.

Donna, glad you had a good BS number and you are getting more energy back. Being sick for 3-4 weeks isn't fun! What are your plans for the weekend?

I had fun shopping-don't have many girls' days out like that! The group I was with helped one woman find a dress for her granddaughter's wedding. I did buy a couple tops and a pair of shoes. Too much eating out lately. I went out to lunch that day and yesterday, and also out to dinner both nights. My food choices were pretty good, and I refrained from any alcoholic beverages, so I was proud of myself. Tonight we were invited to friends' house for dinner, but I declined because we needed a night home. Dave and I played golf in the late afternoon and it was windy, so I was pooped. I fell asleep for a bit tonight while I was watching tv, and now I have my second wind!

Amy, LOL, well I don't know about sounding sexy, more like a toadfrog. LOL Even some of my clients didn't recognize my voice on the phone.
Hope you had a nice day shopping with the ladies, sounds like a good girls day out.

Yayyy!!! The Blood Sugar was the lowest this morning it's been in a couple of weeks, fasting was 124. emoticon I'm on the final day of my prednisone & have finished the antibotics, of course still feel I have fluid on the ears as I can feel all the pressure. But from what I hear from others that have already been through this it is about a 3-4 week span to be completely healed. At least I am getting my energy back. Had my breakfast of 1/2 banana, boiled egg & 1/2 bagel with light cream cheese. Now time to get this day started.

Have a great day!

You'll sound sexy, Donna! Hope you get your voice back soon. How is baby Silas? Have you been better enough to spend time with him?

It was tough having a Super Bowl party here. We had so much food and lots of leftovers. Today I am determined to be very careful about what I eat and track everything. I am going on a shopping trip to a outdoor mall in Tampa an hour away with four cars of women from our neighborhood today! Looking forward to it, since I don't do a lot of shopping on my own. We will go out to lunch, so I am already prepared to get a healthy salad.

Have a great day!

Happy February!

It's been quiet here in the chat room for several weeks, so I thought I would say a quick hi! Hope everyone has a successful month. Thinking of everyone who is experiencing snow and cold weather recently. Stay warm and safe!

Amy, No not doing the zombie walk yet. LOL Glad to have you back with us, sure missed chatting with you.

Feel as if I've been up all night, haven't sleep more than a couple hours combined I think. Working on laundry, now need to go get a shower & get ready to go meet my daughter for the trip to visit my parents. Praying Dad is making improvements, hope to see him doing better. Have to make a quick trip as I have to help DH with a photography job @ 230, a vow renewal of our son in law's parents, 25 years. I'll try to pop in later. Have a good day.

Thanks, Donna. I am glad to be back! Sorry to hear that the sleep fairy didn't visit you last night. LOL about the zombie...hope you aren't walking like one - do you know that song? I hope you can have a restful evening after work and get to bed early. I didn't go to bed till 1 last night - too wound up, but once I fell asleep, I was out like a light till 6:40 when Dave woke me up. I usually walk at 7 with my walking buddy, but she had sent me a text that she couldn't do it, so I stayed in bed a little bit longer. Since I've been retired, I don't think I have ever slept past 7, unless I've been sick.

I'm excited that Barbie was kind enough to put me on the BSG challenge team for the rest of the month, so I will be able to chat with you on the Snow Leopards.
I hope to keep checking in here as well. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Amy, I missed you, glad you are back! emoticon

I didn't sleep but perhaps a couple of hours last night. Feeling quite like a zombie off of one of those horror movies, probably look like one too from lack of sleep this week. Just too much on my mind for it to settle down. Hoping the expresso drink will jolt my mojo into waking up. LOL
Hope everyone has a great day.

Hi, Ladies!

After being away from SP since the middle of November, I am ready to get back in the swing of things and reconnect with friends I have missed here. Today was the perfect day to do it as I realized it is my sparkversary! Just dropping by now to say hi. I have a lot of reading to do to catch up with how things are going with everyone. I was sick with some kind of cold/virus off and on the last two months and also dealing with my emotions with my dad in the hospital two different times, I am now doing well here in sunny Florida...except it is not sunny at all this week - can't complain about the temps though. I just started to learn how to play golf. Never thought I would be golfing at all, let alone in January!

Will catch up with everyone and write again soon!

Ann, I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing, you are in my thoughts & prayers.

Uggg, sleepless night, so much to do today at the office & then have to work on laundry when I get home. On a positive note, I'm ready for meals today, have healthy meals & snacks packed for the office & having baked chicken for supper to go with cabbage & potatoes.

Have a great day.
