I hope you had an enjoyable weekend. We took our granddaughter shopping for some summer clothes since she is taking a trip with a friend and their family to NC. We do so enjoy some time with her.

Sitting here, drinking coffee, listening to the sound of my hubby blowing drifted snow out of the driveway.....it's good to be the wife emoticon Actually, my husband has always LOVED it when we had lots of snow. It puts him into Alaska: The Last Frontier mode but the older he gets, the less anxious he is to be out in it. I, for one, am looking forward to the heat and humidity. I'd prefer that over this anytime! emoticon

We did get the storm but only 6" of snow and LOTS of freezing rain. No one bothered going to the office and it was a wasted day for me. They told us we'd get between 10-15". I hope this is it for the season. We've been very spoiled this winter and I'm not enjoying Mother Nature's last shot of redemption.

Good luck with all the tax stuff emoticon

Are you getting this winter storm? We must have 18 inches already. I've got to get a picture of my completely covered boat garden. I will enjoy it a lot more once spring arrives. I worked over 13 hours yesterday because tomorrow is the deadline for partnerships and 1120s returns. They did a lot of extensions knowing that today we would be closed.

I would like to drum... when I was in grade school that is the instrument I would have liked to learn, but the teacher wanted me to play the flute. I didn't take lessons very long. Now that I'm older I love the saxophone and wish I had learned that.

We are having the same screwy weather. Spring tried to come early, but winter but it back in it's place. I hope you enjoy your weekend too. We have parade day here in our area. There is a huge St. Patrick's day parade with pipe bands coming from all over. It is quite the celebrated event.

Trying to figure out our weather here of late. Last week, we had a few days in-a-row of 60s/70s now it's ridiculously windy and cold. We had a few snow squalls yesterday and it was odd to see snow laying on the daffodils that have started to come up.

Either way, enjoy your weekend.

My condolences; what a trying time for your husband and you. A very good friend of mine was diagnosed with Breast cancer this past November and just finished her chemo; now onto radiation. I thought radiation would be 'easier' for her than the chemo but I've learned it's not. Your husband must be physically and emotionally wiped out right now. He (and you) is in my prayers. emoticon

I love weather so talking about it is just natural for me. Yesterday we had such a nice sunny day - I so wish I had thought about cleaning my car on the inside, it needs it badly. With our temperatures in the high 40's I think I will get that done today. I too love these warmer breaks it reminds me that these cold dark days will pass and spring is just around the corner.

We always seem to talk about weather on this thread emoticon Well, maybe it's ME that always brings up the weather! Here I go again....it was BEAUTIFUL here yesterday and we are being treated to another one just like it today! I love these breaks during the winter months. My husband and I went to an RV show (can't wait to go camping!) and then I came home and got lots done...one of those things was getting the inside of my car cleaned. It needed it badly. I'll give it a good bath today. I know it will get rained on at some point this week but I don't care. I always find washing my car to be relaxing and somewhat theapeutic emoticon

I hope you're enjoying the same weather. Have a great rest of the weekend.

Wow you have a lot of wonderfulness coming your way. Twins would be overwhelming for anyone let alone someone with two small children already. I have a co-worker that is due with twins and she is such a small framed women I don't know how long she will make it before she gets taken out of work. Take one step at a time and you will be just fine. Hubby only has 9 more radiation sessions to go. We are looking towards the finish line.

Morning: so glad it's Saturday and I get to relax a little bit. Last Saturday I flew to Colorado to visit my newest granddaughter; my son's first! (so absolutely beautiful!) I got back home 10 pm Monday evening so it was a whirlwind but worthwhile weekend. At 57, 4 flights within 3 days is taking longer to recuperate from emoticon My youngest daughter is getting married at the end of April and is the most uninterested Bride I've ever heard of! She's not into planning at all; her bridal shower is at the end of March and I'm working on getting that set up. My oldest daughter found out she is pregnant with twins and has a 3 year old and a 5 year old who act like they've got Red Bull drink flowing through their veins.

If I think about it all at once, my head wants to explode! So, one day at a time. I have to get back into my exercise routine this week. I was too tired this past week to push myself.

Have a great weekend everyone! Bella

It is a struggle with my hubby having to avoid vegetables to some extent while going through his radiation treatments. I'm still focusing on keeping them in my diet more that in the past. I'm not always great at that and want to keep it going.

Oh MY! I did so well 7 years ago. I have improved some things long term and I'm still working on others. I am trying the little changes still which is working fairly well. I see a difference in my choices to choose more veggies and fruits. I am also taking the stairs now despite my bad knee. The bike riding is much slower, but I'm determined to get that more frequently in my schedule too.

Feeling full of spit and vinegar today and determined to lose just 10 pounds! Up at 5:15 and on the treadmill. Challenging myself to drink a gallon of water today. I may float around half my day emoticon

I need to address some issues I have with myself, honestly, and tackle them.

Happy Monday; hope you have a good workweek.

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

I love the idea of those desks. I too sit too much at work. At least now when I'm focusing on water intake I have to make trips to the bathroom more frequently. I also think those ball chairs are a neat idea.

Work is already crazy and tax season is just at the beginning. I hope the whole season isn't like this.

Morning workouts just don't work too well for me. I already get up at 5:45 and I need time to wake up before doing something strenuous. I have at least added the stairs this week at work. My knee ends up acting up, but so far so good. I'm going to add exercise a little at a time too.

In my head, I imagine seeing myself getting up early to get my workout in but then I sleep until 6/6:30 and have to get ready for work and get out the door. I have a lot of stress in my life right now and that's not helping.

I've been eating more fruit but could do better with the veges. Thanks for the inspiration!

Yes, I agree it can be cold just as long as the ice stays away! So far my increase in veggies and fruits has been going well. I'm determined to make a difference this year on my weight. I have been in horrible shape for too long.

Cold, cold, cold into next week here in our area of PA. Hey, it's winter. I'm okay with low temps as long as there isn't ice with them.

Stay warm emoticon

We also had a quiet New Years eve and went to bed before midnight as we usually do. I'm past those years of needing to see the new year come in. Enjoy the family.

We had a lovely Christmas; I hope you did as well. New Years Eve was quiet (as we like it) and were in bed by 10 pm emoticon We dismantled Christmas yesterday and I cleaned out some old stuff in the basement,. My oldest daughter and grandkids are coming for a visit today; can't wait to see them.

Have a great week!

Oh me too! I've gained back everything I lost when I initially joined SP. Menopause isn't helping...it doesn't come off like it used to emoticon

My joints are achy and I am really aware of my age. lol The massage was wonderful and I think I need to make that a reward for losing weight. I need to get back on that path.

OH HOW NICE!! I haven't treated myself to a massage in a long time. When I changed jobs, I stopped going to the regular nail salon and masseuse I was going to. I need to find some people close to where I work.

How are you doing - are your joints behaving themselves?

We have the family over for brunch on Christmas so it is a fairly easy menu. I scheduled a massage for today and we got a lot of snow overnight. Thankfully it has recently stopped so I'm hoping the roads won't be too bad. Otherwise it would have been a wrapping day for me too.

thank goodness I wasn't outside for long at all. Everything is covered with ice this morning. It will be a wrapping day. Can't believe Christmas is only 1 week away. We are having family for dinner and I haven't even planned the food yet - ugh!

It was a nice evening and we had a snow storm, but that didn't keep a lot of people away. It is a need for many of us to honor our children.

Tonight, is the 20th Annual Worldwide Candle Lighting as we remember our children, grandchildren and siblings. We have a local chapter that has a service and I just finished the programs for the service. It is a nice night of memory for my son, Joshua.
