If we vote, we need to exclude the skiers, snowboarders and other folks who like winter. Otherwise, our initiative will never pass!!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

I don't like cold fronts (nor cold backs or cold sides). I'm tired of winter. Can we just vote to end it now?

Yup I am quite sure it did. My dad had a really good sense of humor........... the kind that makes you groan. He called me 6 days before he passed with a whole string of really bad jokes. So bad ya had to laugh.

I have to share a touching story with you.

My mom has been in assisted living for close to a month. She wasn't taking all her medications so her doctor said shed be happier and healthier moving out of independent living into assisted living. Mom will be 82 next month.

Sunday morning she called my youngest sister and asked if my dad was with her. My dad passed away in early March. My sister wasn't quite sure what to say so she said "Why do you ask mom?"

"Well" my mother replied. "He usually pokes me in the ribs about ten minutes before they come to give me my medication to make sure I'm awake. He didn't do it this morning and I was wondering if he was with you"

"You know dads passed on don't you mom?" Mary asked.

"Of course I do!!" said my mother but that still doesn't explain where he was this morning.

They were married 60 years this past October

I posted the following on the wrong forum (December Weigh-In....)

Anyway.......today I got up early to exercise. The DVD wasn't hooked up so I couldn't do my Leslie Sansone walking video, then I tried the Wii Fit and it's been so long since I used it that I couldn't find the balance board. So I just walked in place while I watched the news. AND........I tracked my food.

It was a good day. emoticon

Wow, G-Ma! You're officially the party animal of this team! Don't let Buzz and Woody gang up on you.

Lola is feeling better and her digestive system is back in order. Mike will be home alone with her today, so I'm still a bit concerned. Those two really do better with adult supervision.

Barb, obviously Buzz thinks that I am annoying Woody in some way, but I dare not ask. Hard telling what he might say and I don't think I want to know. LOL

Aurlie, I think you'd better tell Mike to quit treating Lola to such rich goodies. I sure hope he is helping with the cleaning up.

I actually stayed awake until midnight watching Parenthood reruns. I love that show! Went to bed at midnight and was kept awake by fireworks and what sounded like gunfire. Who Knows?!

Happy New Year All!

G-Ma, I meant what does Buzz think you're doing to Woody? emoticon I'm sure you are 100% innocent!

Aurlie, Five o'clock and the rug are definitely improvements. Is the next stop "no vomiting"?

I didn't stay awake until midnight either. Woke up at midnight to fireworks and DH getting up to take DD's boyfriend home. But not for long.

Woo Hoo! Happy New Year! I woke up at midnight to hear the fireworks, gunfire and sirens and then went back to sleep. Lola waited until almost 5 am to resume vomiting -- this time on the rug instead of the bed (a marginally better way to start the day). Let's make this a great year!

No plans for New Year's Eve. Probably won't make it to midnight.

Yuck! Hope there is no repeat performance tonight.

I will be shocked if I'm still awake at midnight. Slept in until 5:45, so a bit of a slacker here. But, still too old for staying up past 10:00!

No New Year's Eve plans here. Since we got up before 4am, I don't think we'll make it to midnight. Mike treated Lola to a ham bone last night so she woke us by vomiting on the bed. Since I had just changed the sheets yesterday, I was less than thrilled. It's been a morning of laundry and washing the dog. What a way to end the year!

Kids say the darndest things!

Just for a little background, my grandson calls my husband 'Woody', they are best friends - like Woody and Buzz in Toy Story.

OK, so my grandson comes up to me the other day and says very seriously - "I'm a policeman, but I'm not going to arrest you, I just want to talk to you."

I say "OK, what do you want to talk to me about."

He says (still very seriously) "you've been annoying Woody and you've been giving Woody a headache."

What the heck!!

I think decided to have a little talk with 'Woody'. Of course he denies it all.

Ya Right! LOL

Yay!!!! Great feeling, isn't it!! Planning to do some Sparking tonight and then read my current book. Planning to finish it tonight so I can start fresh in the morning!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

I got my nap in! Felt a little groggy after, but totally worth it. DH and I bought a shelf last weekend. He agreed to get it because I promised him he did not have to help assemble it (we don't play well together when assembling furniture). So, I assembled it tonight. Very happy with it!

Good to hear there will be a pushy lady? I like them! It isn't too big, bu I'll have to ask my mom how many residents there are. It is less than a mile from my grandma's house, so it's a neighborhood that she is familiar with.

Happy vacation Aurlie!

I worked today and will work again tomorrow. Am trying to finish up shopping and wrapping each night after work.

Barb, there is always a pushy lady that will try to drag her out of her apartment. LOL
How big of a place is it?

Enjoy your vacation, Aurlie!

Wow, Barb! You're my hero! Take a nap!

So far today I had a healthy breakfast, got ready to go to the gym, found my car wouldn't start, changed out of my gym clothes and got dressed for work, jumped my car, went to the mechanic and bought a new battery, went to work. Now I'm having an early lunch because none of the jobs I'm waiting for are ready for me yet. I'm really hoping to get out of here at least an hour or so early. Then I'll be FREE until January 2!



Let's walk!

Those are great tips! I'll share them with my mom. My worry is that she is going to mope in her room and be miserable. I'm kind of hoping there is a pushy lady there that keeps dragging Grandma out of her room and makes her join in. That would be ideal...give her the kick in the pants she needs. I'll let you know how it goes.

I'm taking today off from work and the kids are out of school. I've already been to the gym, finished wrapping presents, started laundry and it's just now 10:30. I think a nap is on the agenda for this afternoon!

What do you all have planned?

My number 1 tip is to tell her to get involved. Go to activities and sign up for bus outings. Does she have a talent that she can share with others? The residents that volunteer their time are the happiest ones. I have residents that call bingo for me, or help me serve cake at the monthly birthday party, teach a craft class, bake goodies for the other residents, things like that. The residents that are out of their apartments the most live the fullest lives.
