Barbara, I am so sorry to hear about your brother in law! How awful. Glad he is not in pain.

Frannie, thanks for your condolences. We miss him a lot.

I had connection problems all day, just was able to get online about 10p, but I am here now, checking in!

Got some steps in, took the bus to the doc (easier than finding a place to park), and on the way home I got off a stop early. My knee is acting up (I would have worn my brace if I had known what I would do on impulse!), so it wasn't a full out, work out the kinks, walk, but hey - every step counts, right?

Hope your day was great!

Here Comes the Sun!

Back to the gym this morning did 35 minutes on the treadmill. It was so annoying though. I download books from the library to listen to while I'm working out. So there I am trudging along listening to this great mystery book and it comes to the end of the chapter and then it goes right into another chapter that makes no sense at all from where I was..... well, it appears that when I downloaded the book I left out a couple parts. Now I know who the murderer is but I don't how the main character got there!!!!! Sooooo aggravating. I guess I will have do another download so I get the parts I missed. Oh well, at least I made it to the gym. Have a great day everyone!

Janice, it is called RunKeeper. You can choose the type of activity, set goals, it emails you your progress. I just started using it and I do like that I can get the mileage and speed!

Barbara, so sorry about your brother in law, I will keep him in my prayers.

Hi Franniedid,

I am wondering what the name of your new app is for walking speed? It sounds like something both my daughter and I would like!

Thank you!

Went to the gym this morning and it was a hard morning. I feel it so much!! It is always interesting to me that some days and I am just gung ho and others the same workout is a trial to get through!

My sister in law called this morning to let me know that the prognosis on my brother in law is not good. He was recently found to have cancer, and they have come to the conclusion that it is beyond treatment. Fortunately, he is not in pain, it just makes him tired.

Missed the gym this morning, had to take my husband to a doctor's appointment. Did get in a 3 mile walk/jog when we got home. Even though I'm not always enthused about going out and exercising, it always makes me feel so good when I'm done.

Jumpup, I sure don't envy you all that packing. Sorry about your family's loss, that is always such a blow.

It is beautiful here, supposed to get up to 80 today. Yesterday was gorgeous so I got to walk! I got this new app for my phone that tracks my walk and speed. I am hoping it helps to motivate me to push myself. It lets me know how far I have walked and the speed per mile. So far I really like it. I may try a step counter too, but I am going to work with this one for now. I sure hope you guys are experiencing the same pretty weather I am!!

Nancy, I am glad you got that BS plunge under control! So much we don't know about how our 'innards' work - and what a challenge to keep things on an even keel.

Moving day is close - a couple weeks. This is a family effort so some will depend on when everyone is available. What a joke, all these old people! I have to laugh, my tough, younger cousins who have always been the 'heavy lifters' in the family are gettin' old, my friend. This may be their last chance to relive old glory days, LOL!

Sadly, we lost the best of the batch to esophogeal cancer last summer. What a shock that was. Big hole in the family.

Back to packing - Have a great day

Here Comes the Sun!

You are quite welcome - I had a weird day - testing complete for my students, IEP for incoming student who will be on my caseload but not in my class, my students' IEPs in process of writing them, bickering students, aides tired and a little out of sorts, chocoholic attack that turned out to be a plummeting BS attack - AFTER 2 candy bars BS still low so I ate number 3 and it was still just 120. Obviously went over on my calories and fat but not too bad - only 239 over my range. I don't usually let my BS get that low and I had eaten both breakfast and lunch so I guess stress hit home or I just didn't get my carbs right today. Will watch it closer for the next few days to avoid another episode. Have a great rest of the week.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

Nighttime eating is the worst for me. Evening is closing in and I don't want to go off diet.

What do you do to stay on track?

A sticky topic is one that is fixed to stay at the top of the team page and not to float around depending on responses. For instance, a team might want a topic that answers frequently asked questions - but nobody may post on it and if it wasn't sticky, it would gradually move further and further down the list of topics, so this keeps it at the top.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

Been having connection problems. Hope they are resolved.

Rainy today Good day to pack - down to the dregs now. Ugh, who knew there was so much crap in my life.

Still having trouble with my low back, can't stand for very long. Need to work on my core. I, too, was doing deep water aqua jog classes until I couldn't afford them anymore. That really helped my back - to the point I thought I didnt have to worry about my back anymore - HA! a couple months of enforced inactivity and bam, right back where I started. Well, not quite - the cyst on my vertebra is gone, but the herniated disk and the SI arthritis are what is acting up now.

My luck.

Have a great day, all.

Here Comes the Sun!

See, now we know that we share something. I too love swimming and do water aerobics and toning classes in the pool. I also swim laps sometimes. I also love walking in the nice weather - this weekend was a rainy one in my world but it will stop sometime and then I can walk more.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

Thank you, Nancypat1!
I swam today and also went for a wee walk in the nice weather (where I live the snow has almost finished melting now).
I like swimming because at my weight when I walk, I feel very, very heavy. When I swim I feel light and free!
I hope you had a nice weekend, too!

Thanks. It is going to take getting used to,. One thing about the new one is that it has a fitness feature to track steps, etc. I have to check it out.

I know it is warm outside but it is quite nice in the house.

My ipod came on Friday!! yesterday was spent on the phone with support people because I couldn't get it to sync with my ITunes library. Of course, it was the simplest possible thing but I hadn't a clue. Now I have a nice working ipod again. This new one is about 2/3 of the size of my old one, it is sooooo tiny!

Was up this morning bright and early and walked/jogged my 3 mile route. It was such a beautiful morning. The sun was out, the sky was blue, and it was early enough that the air was still cool. It was a great way to start off the morning.

I know that they are available for the Kindle but I don't have one and no plans to buy one. So I am anxiously awaiting my new ipod and will see what is possible when it gets here, which should be Monday.

I'm glad that I will have it before my trip on Friday. I missed it on the last plane rides I took.

Made it to the gym this morning and spent 30 minutes on the treadmill. Am soooooo glad it's Friday. It's been a great week here with the sun out and the air warming up. I hope it holds through the weekend. It's so depressing watching the nice weather from inside an office. I have lots of outdoor yard work to get going on and it would be nice to do it in the sunshine. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Barb, you can get free audio books for the kindle on Amazon. There is also an ipod/iphone app that will let you use them to read or listen to books for the kindle. I don't know whether you can use the apps on ipods other than the touch or not, so it may depend on which ipod you bought.

I'm trying to get a smocking project completed today, but the beautiful weather outside keeps saying "Get out here and enjoy me while you can. It won't be long until it's way too hot to stay out here very long." LOL

Back to the needlework. Have a great weekend everyone!

Izzy, I know that it is an option at my library, but I'm not sure if it is only for the Kindle type electronics or if I can do it for the ipod. Once I get it, I am going to check.

Barabra - check the website for your local library. Our library has an e-shelf option and I can download books at no cost. It's a great option. Sounds like eveyone is doing good or getting better and that's absolutely great. Have a great day everyone.

My son's procedure went well and everything seems to be okay. I had a sub so I also had the afternoon off to go enjoy the pool. I stayed even longer than normal and worked harder. It was a good day. I am really tired now.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

Checking in pretty late today.

Nancy, I hope your son's procedure went smoothly.

I went to neurologist today, he says everything is still fine and lowered my predinose dose again, YAY! I am down from 80mg at it's peak to eventually 15 mg every other day. And I am pleased to report that although my face is still round as a balloon, you can sort of tell I really do have cheekbones under there! I go back in a month unless something goes horrilbly wrong. Starting to feel a bit stronger too. Man, that stuff wiped me out!

Hope everyone had a great day!

Here Comes the Sun!

When I get the new one, I want to see if I can use it for audio books, since I don't have a Kindle. Depends on whether they are free or not.

I use my ipod to listen to music and sometimes to read if I don't have my Kindle with me. Of course, I'm looking forward to updating mine since it is old enought that I can't use it on the Cloud.

It is so pretty here today. We had frost yesterday, but today it is back in the low 80s. Of course, the cold is supposed to return tomorrow. Roller coaster ride weather-wise!!!!

I use my IPod to listen to books and music. I can download audiobooks through the library and I listen to them when I'm driving or walking on the treadmill at the gym, but I prefer to listen to music when I'm walking/jogging outdoors.

I don't listen to music, I listen to podcasts. My daughter uses her IPhone to listen to them when she walks the baby. I can't wait for it to get here.

I am checking in also - my son has a 7 a.m. appt. for some GI tests and since they are sedating him, I must also be there to drive. Since it is an hour away, we will probably leave around 5:30-45. So, it will be a LONG day. Otherwise life is looking spring-like and the sun is making the world seem so much brighter.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

Checking in to say hi to everyone. I've been out of a town for a few days enjoying family. To much celebration and now it's time to get back on track (again.....)! Made it to the gym for a workout this morning and I actually realized that I missed it while I was gone. (Please someone-anyone- save me from myself.) Hope everyone has a great day and wonderful week.

Yeah Barbara! I gave my iPod to my mom so have been without one for quite awhile. But now I got a new Samsung smart phone and it works just as well as my iPod! I love having music while I walk.

Nice day. I broke down this weekend and ordered a new ipod!! Amazon had it on sale, and I had some credits, so I think that the price was good for a brand new one. I am so excited--it has been since last June that I killed my old one.

Hope the new pastor is everything you hope for!

Don't even talk to me about attics, I haven't even started to pack mine up yet. But if you figure out a way to flood one, let me know!

Cataloguing your arts and crafts into Access sounds like a HUGE task! I'd like to do the same with my recipes, but the size of the job really makes me reluctant to even start it!

The sun is out, the air is a nice 60+, I got a lot of steps in today already, but I am going for a walk before everything changes.

Have a great day, all.

Here Comes the Sun!

NancyPat, congratulations on the new pastor. I've seen what happens to churches when the wrong person fills the pastorate and/or the congregation splits because of differences. It is a hard adjustment for everyone.

Frannie, sorry to hear about the flooding for you and your family. Of course, if flooding were to take care of my getting rid of stuff, I think it would have to flood my entire house, including the attic! :-)

Saturday evening we went to see "The Fiddler on the Roof" performed by one of the colleges in the area. The students did a great job, and we really enjoyed it. Of course, we were late getting home, so staying awake in church was a bit of a challenge yesterday.

Today I want to catch up on mending and start cataloging my craft and recipe magazines in an Access database. I have oodles of them, but can never find the pattern that I know I want when I need it. Hopefully when the project is completed, I'll be able to narrow the search from drawers and boxes of patterns to a few magazines.

Have a great day everyone!

Yes - he comes from a community about an hour away so he KNOWS what the area is like. He is young enough to be active but old enough to have experience with an aging congregation. He comes HIGHLY recommended by the parishoners from his previous churches (he had 3 small churches at the same time), he stayed there for 17 years and when a new group of people moved into the area from the "CITY", they thought if they got a younger pastor, they would GROW - so they got rid of him and their congregations SHRANK. We are REALLY excited because we have been waiting 6 years for THE RIGHT PERSON to come along. We have had interim and part time people for a LONG time and we are ready to have someone full time and committed to our congregation and to GOD's business. Oh, we also like his wife and son.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

Does the new Pastor seem like a good fit for your congregation, Nancy?

Went to church - brunch - and meeting with the new pastor who starts in May - no major shopping today but did stop where they were selling hamburger for under a dollar a pound for customer thank you sale.

I'm a busy bee too. Finally feeling so much better after this sinus infection.
Went to Church and then did my weekly grocery shopping. Finished all of my ironing, too!
Have chicken in the crock pot for dinner and am feeling very productive. Tomorrow I start
exercising again!

Hope you've all had a good weekend, girls.

NancyPat, thank goodness I like lemonade! Actually even with bad things I have been very blessed. My mom has lived months beyond the times we were told by her GP and her 1st oncologist when she was diagnosed so even with the terminal condition there is some good to be had. She came to live with me so has gotten to watch her great-granddaughter grow up for the last couple of years. My basement is going to get cleaned out and things that probably should have been thrown away will be tossed and Mom and Dad's Storage facility will shut down! I had my oldest daughter and her husband to help me clean up, I would have ended up doing it by myself if not for them. My son had his own flood problems to deal with so there was no way he could come help me and my other daughter works long hours so I did not expect to see her. All said I have been given good with the bad so I may complain a bit but I don't feel too terrible most of the time.

The joys of basements! I've never had one but other family and friends have had the same problem. I don't know if it would help you, Frannie, but after my heater in the garage broke and boxes were sitting int he water, before I put everything back, I put down some bricks and planks and put the boxes on the planks so they are a couple of inches above the floor.

My kids are also using the Mom's House Storage Facility. The first time my daughter was in California after they moved to VA, she went through her room and boxed everything--but did not make any arrangements to move it! It's all sitting there, and eventually they will have to do it. My son only took what he really wanted when he got his apartment, but he doesn't have room for any more. Then there are the boxes of their stuff that they want to keep which are in the aforementioned garage!!
