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.

I haven't been around much because my mom passed away Thursday early morning. We had services and buried her on Friday. I cannot think of a single way anything could have gone better. It was very beautiful. I'm on my way home now and should get back tomorrow afternoon.
It's cold back here!

Sheila, enjoy your heat wave. We are having one this week too. Friday we barely got to 31 for a high, this week we are supposed to be in low to mid 50s. Yep, other than the pollen, I'm definitely ready for spring too.

Catching up on spark today & preparing my meals for the week at work, will make staying track more successful.

We're having a heat wave today - the temp is supposed to make it clear up to 31 degrees! It was -10 the other night and windchill was -25! Snow's not bad with only about 5 inches and 2 more expected today. I'm so ready for spring!

Debbie, you are doing going, much better than I with the exercise, just can't find my motivation to do anything substantial. I do try to do some walks during my breaks to the grocery store or dollar store, but that's about it.

Sheila, how are you feeling today, any better? My sweet tooth is my downfall usually, doesn't help that I have diabetes that right now is not in control.

Our temps dipped to 17 last night, wind chill currently is 3. Definitely not used to this, we seldom get below 20 & not very often. Some of the neighboring counties to my NW actually had a few flurries. Well one benefit of the cold is I slept very well. Did wake up once but quickly fell back asleep. Let the water dripping at home to hopefully ensure no frozen pipes as our temp is not even going to reach freezing today. Had my veggie omlet before heading out, 2 day streak of eating BEFORE going to work, seems to be helping me curb the munchies when I get to the office. LOL. Got a bit of a headache this morning, hope it goes away quickly. Stay warm & have a great day.

Sheila, oh my, hope you can get rid of that nasty ole infection. Take care of yourself, & get lots of rest.

I do have a woohoo. I think my hardest struggle with healthy eating is at work. I was having lunch with 2 of my coworkers, I had made a PB & Banana English Muffin Sandwich , one had BBQ ribs & one had Chicken Noodle soup. After done eating, they decided we should all go get a candy bar, but I held to my plan & said no I didn't want one. Normally I would have caved in. So I really was proud when I finished my tracking last night & found that I was within my target range for calories, protein & fat, just need to work on getting the carbs down.
My headache is lingering still this morning, hope this day goes quickly.
Have a great day!

How exciting for your family - a new grandchild to love!!!
I ended up in ER with this darn bone infection again. I spent a few hours there getting IV antibiotics and my fever is down today. I am so tired of dealing with this!
Otherwise, it's a "normal" day for me.

Sheila, hope you enjoy your weekend. Hopefully this is my last hectic one for a bit. We hosted our DIL a baby shower, our 2 oldest daughter's helped with the decorating & food prep. We had a nice time, family is what it's all about. Just a few more weeks & baby Silas will make his arrival on the 30th.
Today is our usual Sunday, church this morning, then I'll be making taco salads for lunch, working on laundry & the back to church for the evening service.

That's wonderful news Debbie, what a great start to the new year.

We had a nice church service last night, beginning with a meal of collards, blackeyed peas, sweet potato casserole, chicken bog & pineapple cake. We got home in time to watch the New Year's Rocking Eve & then watch the ball drop. We went to bed about 1230 but after taking Benadryl for continuing hives, I slept til 9 this morning. Happy to say, today is the first day of NO hives. Yahoo! I went to Walmart & shopped for the baby shower Saturday, when I got home my sweet DH had supper cooking, our traditional New Years fare of Collards, Black Eyed peas, baked sweet potatoes & baked ham. We even had enough to put 3 meals of each in the freezer, that's going to be great on worknights to make for easy & quick supper preparation.

Hello everyone!

I have good news to share with you. As you know I was diagnosed at the first of this year with Melanoma in my lung. I surgery in March and have had to have CT scans every 3 months since to keep an eye on things. Yesterday, my oncologist called with the results from my last CT scan. It is official I am in Remission. emoticon

That doesn't mean it can't come back eventually. It does mean that I don't have to go and have another CT scan for 6 months.

I want to thank all of you for the prayers, thoughts and support that you all have given me through this rough year.

Donna ~ No, there is still infection in and around the bone just below my knee. It is reacting to the antibiotic this time (this has happened before) so it isn't as inflamed. Thanks for asking.

Sheila, did you get over your sickness? Good job getting preparations done for meals & getting organized.

Well it seems I was allergic to the new meds ---hives, cold skin, vision blurriness, depression, sweats were all side effects from an allergic reaction. Called the Dr yesterday & relayed what was going on to the dr's nurse. She discussed with my DR & she called back about 6 last night & said for me to discontinue the injection & she was calling in a pill for me to start, I think she called it ONGLIZA (sp). So I will pick that up after work today & start it tonight. Hoping no side effects from this one. The downside of stopping the inject was that finally I was starting to lose weight once again. I've lost 1.9# since starting it a week ago.
Took Benadryl for the hives, which normally makes me sleep for 8-10 hours, but no such luck, sleep 4 hours, then wide awake.
Have a busy day at the office, then stopping by pharmacy & grocery stores. I need to make a birthday cake for a coworker as her birthday is tomorrow.
Hope everyone has a great day.

Just dropping by to say hello! Have to go to the store and drop some papers off at the recycle bins at church and then to mom's to help her make some ham salad from the leftover Christmas ham. I'm still working on cleaning this darn apartment! I got side-tracked in the kitchen yesterday and did some batch cooking. I need to get more of those divided plates to fix meals to freeze in.

Mimi, enjoy the time with your sister & her family. I tend t clean the day before I know that we will have family other, don't want to have to work & miss any time with them.

Sheila, do take it slow & don't make yourself any sicker. Be sure to get plenty of fluids & rest.

Relaxing while finishing up the final 2 loads of laundry. Trying to get caught up before returning to work. At least it's only a 4 day work week.

MiMi ~ I’m spending the day cleaning, too. I started yesterday but can only work a little while at a time before I have to stop and rest. Laundry is killing me - going up and down the stairs to the basement. At least I’m cleaning the kitty litter boxes while I’m down there. I hope you have a nice visit with your family. I miss my nephew - he lives in California, a long way from Ohio!

Donna ~ I envy you being able to go to the beach in December. It’s cold and rainy/snowy here right now. I used to go out and walk in this but times have sure changed for me! I hope you enjoyed your dinner and going out together to celebrate such a sweet anniversary.
I’m cleaning house very (and I do mean very) slowly. I work about 20 minutes and then have to take a break. I probably shouldn’t be doing this but I can’t stand the mess anymore.

Enjoy your day.

Sheila, you be resting as much as possible so your body can build up the strength needed to fight the infection. Glad you can remain on the oral meds & not have the port. Get well soon.

About to ride down to the beach to take in some fresh salty air & look at the marine wildlife. I find this to be relaxing especially now that the tourist season is over, it's not so crowded. Then going out to supper to celebrate our special day 16 years ago when we went out on first date. Little did I know that would be the beginning of many wonderful memories.

Hello, everyone!
I'm cleaning house today, or at least pretending to!
Still fighting this infection but did find out today that I don't have to get a port and can stay with oral antibiotics for at least two more weeks. The bad thing is that I have no energy when I'm taking them.
Hope all is well.

Already have 2 loads of laundry done this morning. BS still up, but I'm seeing the scale drop which is good since the new insulin as a side effect of weight gain. Hopefully as the weight comes down so will the BS. Heading to breakfast with DH, then to the mall to exchange a pendant he got me for Christmas, he already got me this same one last Mother's Day, guess he must really like that one. LOL.
Tonight we are going out for dinner to celebrate our 1st date 16 years ago yesterday. I think the plan is to go to OUTBACK, which I don't mind, as I love their salads, always so fresh.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Merry Christmas. We had our family Christmas celebration last night after work. I cooked 2 racks of ribs, fried some chicken drumstick, made a bowl of fresh fruit, Mac & Cheese & banana pudding. DH cooked the clam bake, the celebration was held at our younger son's home. Everyone had a nice time & for once we had all the kids & grandkids there. I even got a pendant that had enscribed "NANA" from all the grandkids, they were so proud marching like a bunch of soldiers to present it to me.

Today we spent the 1st part of that day at home, opening gifts between DH & I, we even cooked breakfast of ham, eggs, fried potatoes & toast. Later we went to visit his mom, rode around sight seeing . While supper was getting prepared I "UN" decorated the house returning it to a normal look while DH took down the lights/garland from the porch. Since today was his only day off from work, we figured it was best to get it done while we had some spare time. Supper was steaks & potatoes cooked on the grill & some garden peas.

Relaxing now til bedtime. Tomorrow We (myself & 3 daughters & 4 grandkids) are going shopping, mostly for stuff for DIL's babyshower. Yes call me crazy with a SUV load of love.

Good morning ladies. Had planned on watching the CMA Country Christmas last night, wasn't very impressed with the performance. It was like most of the artists were trying to out do one another, messed the songs up bad. Carrie Underwood had about the best performance with Michael W Smith. Slept ok, got about 6 hours. Have to stop back by the grocery store later, forgot a few things, besides I need to pick up some linguine for a salmon recipe I would like to try, that's if I can get home at a decent hour. LOL.

Mimi, hope you & your DH get over the sniffles, no time for sickness this time of year. Best to you getting your decorations up.

Didn't get to walk today other than while I was grocery shopping & then making trips back & forth from the car to the house. Traffic was a bear tonight, my normal drive from the office to the grocery store was 70 minutes instead of 20 & then I still had another 20 minutes from the store to home. Didn't get home til after 7, so we heated up the veggie beef soup I had taken out of the freezer.

Sheila, hope you are feeling better. Did you have a nice Thanksgiving?

Ours was good. Had all the kids & grandkids over & each family brought food for the dinner, much easier than me doing all the food prep for 18 people. LOL.

Sorry I've been AWOL for a few days. Spent part of the time in the hospital for dehydration and to get control of vomiting/dry heaves. The final diagnosis is a burst ovarian cyst. I side pain and dry heaves were unbelievable. I'm okay now, just very tired and weak.

Donna ~ Your kitchen sounds great. It will be a good feeling when it is completely done.

Been working on the kitchen remodel. Painting done last week. Yesterday put down new vinyl tile. Today going to my aunts to pickup drawer pulls & knobs for the cabinets & she's also giving me a microwave cart that has doors on the bottom for storage. Woohoo, my kitchen is coming together, only thing left is to get the moulding put down & then put new decos & kitchen towels.

I drank a large glass of my aloe juice & cranberry juice cocktail before bedtime. Must have helped the throat. It was only a little scratchy this morning, but nothing like yesterday. Brrr, it got much colder than forecasted. I'm glad I remembered to leave the faucets dripping otherwise we may have had frozen pipes this morning. It was 15 degrees @ 7 when I was leaving for work. We are supposed to warm up to 47 today with sunshine. Tonight will be warmer than last night, supposed to only drop to 36 & start warming back to the upper 60s by the weekend. And yes I did remember my coat today. emoticon

We aren't supposed to get snow, just really cold weather.

Busy day at work then had a long drive home. Had to take the long way around adding 20 miles to my route as the bridge was closed to highway traffic due to a possible jumper. It seems law enforcement was able to talk him down,hopefully he can get some help for whatever made him/her think jumping was the only solution to the problem(s).
The soup was good & soothing to my scratchy throat, I sure hope I'm not about to get sick, but there are so many fighting colds & pneumonia. I'm trying to stay well.

Colder weather always makes me crave hot soup! We dropped from 66 to 36 one day last week. Now, it's in the 30s and supposed to be in the low teens for most of next week. The first snowfall is happening right now. It's beautiful to look out in but I'm looking forward to going to the store later today. We have about 4 inches and it's still falling.
Maybe I'll make soup, too.

Sheila, I was pleasantly surprised the colors matched so well together & it also makes the kitchen look much brighter.

The weather is going to be a little weird today. Supposed to reach 71 but then showers & windy conditions will drop temps down to the 40's by night time. I have a crockpot of homemade veggie beef soup cooking so supper will be warm & simple.

I think Mexican is my favorite food! It's great that you enjoyed your dinner and had the pleasant surprise of someone paying for it. What a nice thing to do.
I like the color scheme you are putting in your kitchen. I'm going to be buying a condo in the spring and I want to stay with lighter shades when I have it painted.

Had the Camerones Al De Mojo at the restaurant which is grilled shrimp over a bed of Jasmine rice & garnished with Avocado chunks. Very tasty. I must admit the best part of the meal was getting up to the register to pay & realizing that one of our church members who was in there with her granddaughter had paid for our meal already, how nice of her to do that.

Heading home to work on laundry now, need to get my grocery list written out & then head back to church later.

Sheila, bundle up & stay warm as you get your running around done.

Yesterday we completed Phase 1 of the Kitchen Redo. We did finish the painting. We actually put the 1st coat of paint on Friday night but then got up yesterday @ the walls had a pale pink hue about them. That's just not going to do, I'm not a lover of the color pink to start with, definitely not for my kitchen. So back to Lowes we went, I picked out a light beige color & we put a coat over the Pink paint & it looks great now, Kenny trimmed the moldings, windows & door frames with a camel color. I love the brightness of the kitchen now, looks great. We did pick up the new stove & have it stored in the garage til we can get the new floor down, hopefully that can be done one evening after work. I worked muscles I didn't know I had. LOL. Every part of my body ached so bad when I went to bed, ended up taking 4 motrin & sleep like a baby. Feeling great this morning, other than a slight achy hip, but that's about norm..

Heading to church & then stopping for Mexican cuisine afterwards. This afternoon I need to work on laundry since I didn't get it done yesterday.

Have an emoticon day.

No, actually I was sitting a lot & riding in the vehicle. I get them on occasion, but thankfully this was a mild case. I don't eat bananas often as they aren't the best choice with m diabetes.

Ran some errands & lunch, still trying to decide on where to purchase flooring, aiming for a good price.
