Naypooie - you are right - they had it checked wrong. I found this out earlier in the day by reading someone's thread on Sparkpeople who was having the same issues. I unchecked it, took myself off the team and then rejoined. Now, I am getting notifications.
Thanks for the reply!

JLKL, go to your start page, and on the left under the big START you'll see email preferences. Check them to see if they changed. A couple times a year, mine get changed to 'never email me again'. Don't know how or why, but it cuts off my email until I change it again.
I'm on Day 2 of my Big Pantry Project. I have made a few mistakes along the way (like not accounting for the width of the blade when cutting the doors, ugh) but I think it will turn out okay. I am changing the bifold doors into french doors, and doing a major purge of the contents. I have only emptied two out of the 5 shelves so far, and I have filled three garbage bags already! I have never really don't anything like this before... so I am learning as I go.
Because I have been so busy the last couple days, I haven't eaten much. My kitchen is a construction zone right now, so it isn't really a good place to cook.
Today was the first delivery of my food box from The Organic Box. In addition to my fruits and veggies, I ordered chicken breasts, ground beef, and chicken sausages. They come from a local, certified organic Meat farm. I had one of the sausages today, and it was delicious! Only 1g net carbs per sausage.
I didn't get any messages today from SparkPeople about new posts. Not sure what's going on.
Leslie - my hubby grooms our 2 Schnauzies, and he has been very busy at work lately. They are looking and smelling very untidy. If he doesn't do it soon, I will have to take them to our Vet's groomer, but I don't think my doggies would like that because they are so used to hubby doing their maintenance.
Nothing much happening today.

Poor little Tater! I think he probably has a medical issue that is making him miserable. Cats are usually obsessively tidy and to sleep with poo must be hard on his little kitty psyche... Is the shelter going to get him to a vet?
Good luck, Woubbie! Hope you kick out more work than you think you can... :)
I'm working on month end and am way behind due to the generalized state of chaos this company seems permanently mired in. No nagging calls or emails from Denmark though so that either means they trust me and will stay out of my way or they're all on holiday and don't care! :)
Dropped the boys off at the groomer this morning and some time after about 3:00 I'll have naked, happy, and clean Schnauzers! I only have a little client work stacked up for this weekend so maybe I can do some quality relaxing and enjoy some nothingness.

Interesting idea. I can understand that for liability issues you'd need to cover a number of eating styles that are not on the gov's My Plate. My new tactic with people who ask how I'm losing weight is to convenient leave out the low carb angle and emphasize the "only eat things that give you value for calories". It's usually pretty easy to convince them that grains are worthless, though none of them want to give them up either....
Timewise at work it's another day of trying to fit 10 pounds of sausage into a 5 pound casing. I don't want to leave a lot of strings hanging for Monday, but I don't think I'm going to finish everything on the to-do list no matter how hard I try. Oh well.
Have a great day, all!

I'm taking it really easy today. I cancelled my meeting with the nutrition coordinator at the Food Pantry. I had emailed her offering to volunteer there. They have a really big educational component, and in fact won a national award based on that. I told her that I know my veggies and what to do with them (something I know they want to have, so people who shop there can be told what to do with the fresh veggies that the pantry really pushes), but that what I would really like would be to somehow tell people that they can eat low carb on a budget. I've done several Food Stamp Challenges, where I ate (or at least planned meals) using all food from the grocery stores and/or the Farmers Market, at the actual current prices (including sales) and spent less than the average food stamp benefit in Indiana for the month, including starting from absolutely scratch. I "bought" everything in retail quantities, even though I just used a smidgen of it. And I did it low carb (I think I averaged about 30 net carbs per day), with 80-100 grams of protein and about 1600-1800 calories per day. And no beans, rice, flour, bread, potatoes, starches, mac and cheese, ramen soup, or any of the other things that people think they have to have in order to eat cheaply. She wants to talk about how they can use that experience, specifically planning meals around the supermarket specials, but also how to adapt a food budget to various special diets. We'll see.
I take Tater back to the Shelter today. I haven't checked the bathroom yet this morning. I think he is incontinent, since I found poop in his bed last night, too. Poor baby.
