Morning all,

I had a 3.5 lb loss at TOPS yesterday. One more lb. and I will match the weight on my drivers license. And I haven't had to go in to take a renewal test since the 80's.

Exercise and usual chores this morning. Then to the V.A. for a nutrition class. After that some house cleaning and maybe a little guitar picking.

Have a great day all!

Morning all,

Warm already this morning but overcast. Yesterday was over 100 and last night about 11:00 there was the huge crack of thunder that shook the house immediately followed by a flash of lightning and then rain. a couple of minutes later another crash of thunder and lightning then it started raining so hard I thought it was hail! That lasted about 5 minutes or so then proceeded to move on. I heard the thunder for the next hour or so as it faded away. Really strange and unexpected. This morning there will be scattered thunder storms then will clear and get up to 98.

Going to do my 4 min Tabata training this morning then get ready for TOPS. I think I have a couple lb loss for the week. After that just some work around the house.

Have a great day all!

Morning all,

Thanks Deni, Still haven't heard back after yet another message. Sometimes you step back and take too many breaths and get dizzy. Monday I will contact the corporate office.

I was in Palo Alto yesterday for a Dr.appt. That is usually an all day trip. We left at 9 a.m. and got back at 10:p.m. The traffic is bad. (Worse than in San Diego) it took 4 hrs. to get there.

Today it is back in gthe100"s and will be all weekend. I don't know if I'll spend too much time outside today.

I have been reading about the shooting in Colorado. What a tragedy! I don't know what I would do in a situation like that.

Exercise, barn cleaning and who knows today. I started doing this exercise called Tabata Training the 4 minute exercise. I read it on SparkPeople the article is Tabata 101. Anyway, you take an exercise(I use rowing or stationary bike) and you do it as fast as you can for 20 seconds then rest for 10 sec. and repeat till you have your 4 minutes. It is pretty intense. If you want to check it out check the link below.

Well it's tabata time I get a move on! (I know, terrible pun!)

Have a great day all!

Rick

Hi all,

Rick sounds like a very upsetting time with 5 star then for them to handle it the way they have or have not handled it. What works best for me is to step back and take some deep breaths. Like Grandma used to say catch more with honey...... Hope all works out.

Cathy so glad everything seems to be coming together for you. You sure deserve it.

The heat here finaly broke here. YEAH!!! Its a wonderful 75 degrees here. Last night it was in the50s. Great sleeping. It was the first good night sleep Ive had since the heat wave. We have AC but its not the same and dont like to run it all night. Looks like this cool weather is here for about a week. I am not a summer person. Not worth 10 cents in the heat. I hate it. Would rather be in a snow storm.

We got Nanci Griffith tickets for Nov 11th. I love Nanci Griffith. We got second row middle. I am excited already. Countdown 17 weeks.

Must close for now Deni emoticon

Cathy 5 Star is a tour group that sets up bus, boat, sight seeing etc tours. We went on one and was told the latest pick up time was 11:30. We showed up at the designated site at 11:00 and the buses had already gone. We called the hotel and had them tell the driver there were still people there and they said they would not send out another bus. It cost me 76.00 for a taxi ride back to the hotel.

Hi all
My container arrived today so some family members will be here Saturday to empty it out. It was much too hot to attempt to do anything today. My foot has still been hurting a lot, although today it seems to be improving so didn't want to take a chance on hurting it again like I did the other day.

It will be nice to have my own bed. The one I've been using is ok, but I wake up sore every morning. And I received my final divorce papers so now I can get my new license, change all my paperwork, bills, etc.. So things are beginning to get better. Now if only I can find a job...one step at a time!

Rick, what is 5 star? And what an awful way for them to do business. I would be very upset too. Weather here has been sunny everyday but way too hot. We got a few sprinkles yesterday and today but not enough to make a difference. We need rain!

Cathy

Morning all,

What a wonderful day it was yesterday. t was in the upper 80's and another nice breeze throughout the day. I wish it would be like that everyday.. Today should be about the same I hope.

Yesterday I cleaned up my Weider Crossbow,which is like a Bowflex, and started using it. Using the equipment at the gym in San Diego reminded me of how much I really like using the equipment.

I got tired of waiting for 5 star to call me back so I called them. Whoever I talked to told me the person who was handling it was on her way out to lunch. And said she told him to tell me she would definitely call me when she got back. (he said she was standing right in front of him) Well she didn't call back! I can't believe the way this is being handled. If I was to have done this when I was working I could be fired or at the very least reprimanded. I guess I need to try to go over her head.

Exercise this morning, then off to pick up some hay, after barn cleaning and feeding of course. Then later this evening dog agility practice.


Well gotta run,

Have a good day all!

Rick

Hello
Guess I put this weeks check in, in the wrong place. Sorry for the confusion.

The container is coming tomorrow and a few family members will be here Saturday to empty it out. Yeah! I also got my divorce papers in the mail this morning, so I can get my name changed on all my bills and important papers, new license, insurance, etc..

Deni, I don't know this area well at all but I'm sure I could find it with my GPS! As soon as I get things more settled, I'd love to meet up with you!

Hope you're having a terrific Tuesday!

morning all,

It was 62 here this morning but will be up in the 90's today.

Church this morning then off to try to have my charging system checked on my truck. From what I have checked I think it's the batteries but want to make sure it is not the alternator.

Cathy i can imagine how anxious you would be to get your things. Hopefully things will work out well and everything will get unpacked quickly and without breaking something! (that always happens to me)

Gotta run. dogs are barking.
Have a great day all!

Rick

Morning all!
Nice and sunny here in NH, slight breeze...will be in the 90's later. We need the rain, it has not rained since I got here 2 weeks ago.

Will be having my storage container delivered this week. It got delayed because of the bank. It's been almost 3 weeks since I loaded it up. It'll be nice to finally get my stuff here.
The only problem is now most members of my family will be on vacation and won't be able to help unload. It will be up to my nephews and son, hopefully they can all get together to do this on the same day as some items are heavy and awkward.

Hope you all have a great Sunday!
Cathy
