Good evening all...

Had a good day. We went to a store called "The Forge" that has all sorts of cast iron and kitchen items. Fun looking around there. Then went to the Christmas Store for a bit. The Smoky Mt. Opry show was amazing as always. It always brings me to tears toward the end when they do a beautiful version of "Mary Did You Know" and then the living Nativity. WOW!

We all went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner and then the kids went down to the Island and we came back here. We brought Aiyden and Adalyn back with us - they'd had enough for today.

Tomorrow we'll have breakfast, check out and head to Dollywood. Home from there - so might not be back on till we get home tomorrow night.

Have a great rest of the weekend!

Hi everyone.

We didn't get in till around 10 last night. Jim didn't get off early like he'd hoped. By the time we settled in I didn't get back on here. Andy walked across the parking lot to Denny's and brought back some sandwiches and we went to bed.

Had breakfast this morning and Brenda, Jim and Andrea took the kids down to swim so I have a chance to be on here a bit. Brynlee is with us and we're hoping she'll get a nap while they're down there. Not sure what else is going on except we're going to the Smoky Mt. Opry show at 3:30. I know Andrea and Austin want to get up to Gatlinburg to the Sugarlands Moonshine place to get some gifts at some point and Brenda wants to go to the Christmas Place (imagine that). LOL Only problem with this trip is it was dark on the way over and it'll be dark on the way home tomorrow so I'm not getting to see much of my Smoky Mts. Oh well, can't have everything!

Glad the birthday dinner went well Peggy, sure glad we don't have any snow to shovel! LOL

Gwyn, sorry about the sleepless nights, that's no fun!!

Sharon, you sure were a ball of energy - good for you!

Merri, I may have to look into the Facebook puzzles. Annie, I used to love doing puzzles, but with the little ones around there's no "safe place" to put them together. I think I have a couple under my bed I never even opened.

Hope all of you have a great weekend!

Good Sat morning to everyone!! It is 35 here and going to reach to around 40...The sun is suppose to come out later tho..That always makes it seem warmer...

Today we don't have anything really on our list to do. Just our regular bread and banana run...Than later church at 5 PM...

Spent close to 1 1/2 hrs at the Miracle Ear place. She has finally noticed too that Mr Ken doesn't talk very loud nor very often...so very hard for me to hear him at least 90% of the time...

Oh yes, we have to go and get a gift card for our GD here in town from her favorite restaurant. O think they are only open at night (we don't go out at night usually) than open for breakfast on the weekends....So, not far from where we get Mr Ken's bread and bananas....

Annie, I love building puzzles that are free on FB....It really gets me to relax...

Good morning everyone!!!! It's 24 this morning

Oh Mary, chicken noodle soup and grilled cheese sounds so good. I was just thinking of making chicken soup for tomorrow.

Jodi, Dave and Adin came over the river and through the woods through the snow last night for Jerry's birthday party. It was fun and they stayed until 9:30. When they were leaving Jared handed the shovel to Adin and said shovel your way to the car. He had half the driveway done by the time Jodi and Dave got there. He was just wearing shorts too. I had on a winter coat and I was just staying in the garage.

Sharon you made me tired reading all of the stuff you got done.

Yesterday was a good day and it was not a windy day. We did get about an inch of snow but it was light and fluffy. I did my 60 minutes of walking and went to the grocery store so that is done for another week. I dusted and vacuumed my bedroom and cleaned the bathroom except for the floor and dusted the hallway. I was tired by the time I was done.

Good morning to a Fri morning. It is only 24 and not getting much warmer. I have finally taken out my winter coat. I guess I thought we were going to have a nice mild warmer winter??

Oh how I wish our two grand kids in town here we young again. We have such good memories with them...Now 29 & 31...They talk about all of the good times when we see them at Christmas too... . Really miss Christmas through their little eyes

Joyce, Have the best weekend ever. I wish I could be in your pocket and see all of the wonderful things you share on here...ENJOY!!

Today Mr Ken gets his toe nails cut and than we have to go to the Miracle Ear place again to see if she can get me to hear better out of my left ear. I have TMJ in the jar there and it is hard to get those little buds to fit right.

Good Morning!

Gwyn - freezing rain is the WORST for sure!

Peggy, sorry about the furnace, BRRRR. Hope it's a quick fix.

Trudy, so glad you're feeling better! Not the time of year to be under the weather.

Sharon, glad you didn't get much snow. I haven't talked to my daughter in Ohio to see how bad it is where she lives (in our old house). I think they're expecting more today. I know it's really cold, single digits!

Have to pack, leaving for Pigeon Forge around 5 for the weekend. We have tickets for the Smoky Mt. Opry for tomorrow afternoon and will go to Dollywood on Sunday. Come home that night. Not sure what else - just go with the flow.

Good morning!
Oh what a difference a day makes!! I feel so much better today!!
I went out last night, I felt better as the day went on. Today I think I'll clean the house so that I'll just have a quick go over next week before my son comes!
Peggy, I hope the furnace repairman can come early today!! Why is it things like this happen in the middle of the night?
Joyce, I'm sure you're really happy to be in SC, especially when you see the snow reports from OH!! Have a fun weekend.
Merri, so glad your ENT appt. went so well!!
Annie, as nice as it is to have company, it's nice to be back to a normal routine too, isn't it?
I hope you all have a fantastic day!!

Hi everyone!!! it's 15 out and our heat broke during the night. It looks like it's 50 inside. At least there is no wind blowing inside.

We got a little snow yesterday but not enough to really amount to much. It looks like that is how it is going to be. It was a calm day and that makes things so much better, I did my 60 minutes of walking and rested most of the day, I made up for my lack of sleep. Will do better today.

Your mission for today is to do a five minute declutter mission. No big deal, just grab a trash can and toss anything in the bathroom and your most cluttered room that you can for five minutes. When you are finished, that is it. See how much you can toss in 5 minutes.

Hi everyone!

I guess the weather in Ohio is really nasty - I see most of the schools are closed today. Here it's sunny and 53 and they're mowing our grass! LOL

Brenda went to get her nails done this morning, so I sat with the kids for a bit. Back home now and need to get busy. So much I need to do yet before Christmas, and we're leaving for Pigeon Forge late afternoon tomorrow for the weekend.

Sam was cute, she came over and offered to stay with the kids so I could leave and I told her no, I was already there and it was fine. She said "Mom's going to be mad, I told her I'd come sit with them." (She'd slept later than she intended, so wasn't up when Brenda left). I told her "You forget that I am the "Mom" in that scenario!!" LOL Worked out well, she needed to get groceries anyhow.

Trudy, hope you feel better!

Merri, glad your dr. visit went well!

Hope all of you with the slippery conditions are really careful when out and about.

Happy Birthday to Jerry!!!!

Merri that is like me and falling on my new knees. I avoid all sorts of things to avoid falling.

Yesterday when we were shopping there were lots of puddles frozen over.

Jerry and I are going up to Jodi's for lunch. That way we will be home before dark and things ice over.

Good morning everyone from me in K-town too. We are only at 14 and sunny here...Not getting much warmer either. We didn't really get much snow at all here. Only a dusting. They were saying that how only 30 miles can make so much of a difference when it snows...

All went well yesterday with the EMT Dr...That one should be all done now for ever.....Just don't yell at Mr Ken...have to go in by him and tell what I need to I guess LOL... Gosh, all three of the patients waiting to see the dr had colds. Than the dr had a cold too..Great!!!! Just what I need to get. Mr Ken laughs so hard at me as I won't touch a door knob with my bare hands...Won't push an elevator button with my bare hands...Germs all over right now...DON'T need to get sick....Ever!!!

Good morning,
It's cold this morning. 26 with single digit wind chill.
I just feel like crap this morning. I can't seem to shake this cold. I feel better during the day and then all night I fight the stuffed up nose!! Oh well, it will pass.
I hope you all have a good day.
Peggy, I hope you can get to Jody's to celebrate Jerry's birthday. It sounds like she has a really nice meal planned!!

Good morning everyone!!! it's 23 and snowing lightly.

Jodi messaged me and their school is closed so no basketball game this afternoon.

She bought a fudgy the whale cake for Jerry's birthday tomorrow and has chicken and wine sauce all made for our dinner. We'll see what happens.

I'm off to try out our new coffee pot. The other one bit the dust.

At least Christmas is on a Monday to give you a long weekend Gwyn

Have a great day

Yesterday was a nasty, windy and cloudy day. We had freezing rain and the sidewalks are just like a sheet of glass. My GD came over and salted the walks for me. I did my 60 minutes of walking and that was about all. Hailley had a bad episode on Tuesday night into yesterday and I was up all night with her trying to get her settled down. She broke out in large spots of red and blistery spots on her tummy and she was so uncomfortable she couldn't sit still. I used her medicine which made it worse and I was giving her a bath at 10:30 with her medicated shampoo. I ended up using Neosporin antibiotic salve and then a few hours later I used cortisone cream and just held her and petted her until it stopped her itching and she could sleep. Yesterday was much better for her but I held her most of the day to keep her from scratching. We got a great sleep last night so we both feel better today. No wind this morning.

Morning Girls! It is 25 here this morning. We got about about 2" of snow during the night. Just enough to be a pain for those commuting. The wind finally stopped last night. Lauren and 2 of the boys were supposed to come for supper but it was simply too cold.

Peggy - I agree! You deserve a discount!

Have sa great day!

Zone 3: The Main Bathroom and Another Room

Today we are going back into the office, computer area or desk area! Take 5 minutes to empty your trash can and take a feather duster or dust rag to the room. It is ok if you have piles and you are still working on the clutter, just dust around the stuff for now to get rid of the dusites that have started to get really comfortable in there. You get extra bonus points for sweeping or vacuuming the room as well! Set your timer for ten minutes and don't get sidetracked!

Good Wed morning to everyone in cyber space....It is 27 here and NOT snowing!! They got snow not too far to the north of us...So far so good yet...

Today I have to go back to the EMT dr just for a follow up from last summer. Oh gosh, we will be so glad when this year is over. So many dr and so much running....

Than we will come home and I think we are going to make the hamburgers in the Ole George again. It really worked out well the last time. The liver yesterday was just soooo good too. That was just done on the stove tho...

Joyce, I think the younger guys/gal at Best Buy have Mr Ken's account figured out...The guy that did work on the phone should never have touched it at all. Now waiting for another one of little cards to come in the mail for free...

Oh gosh, I just seen where we got another $15 cash thing to use at Sears again....LOL I always try and get the shipping free. The purchase can come to our K-mart which is maybe 4 blocks away from us...

Good Morning!!

My phone app for Rock Hill says it's 21 but my indoor outdoor thermometer says it's 32. News on TV says 27 in Charlotte. So take your pick - but it's cold. LOL Blue skies and sunshine and looks like it's not as windy today at least.

Peggy, I think you're wise to put off the walk till later. That's REALLY cold! Enjoy your shopping. I still have to go for a major shopping trip and I need yarn to finish Austin and Sam's afghan, too. Yaaay and on the loss, and yes - you should tell your leader you deserve a rebate for all the new memebrs! LOL

Brenda's going to the office for a couple of hours today, probably around lunch time so the mgr. can get out for lunch and any errands she might have. So far Brenda's enjoying it a lot and Dawn appreciates Brenda's fresh perspective on getting things organized. I guess next week, Monday and Tuesday, Dawn will be out of town so Brenda is going to work full days. Sam is going to keep Aspyn so we'll just have the older two.

Trudy, we leave Friday for Pigeon Forge, probably around 3:30 or so. The plan is to get there, get settled in the rooms, let the kids swim and just relax. Everyone is going, but Sam and Austin can't join us till Saturday morning. His plant's Christmas dinner is Friday night. We have tickets for Smoky Mt. Opry Saturday afternoon. Sunday we go to Dollywood and back home that night. Quick trip, but want to see the Christmas lights and shows.

Liz, sorry you weren't feeling well but glad it apparently passed quickly!

Roz, glad you enjoyed the concert and the birthday celebration!

Sharon, I can't remember the last time I baked bread!

Gwyn, hope work goes well for you today. Happy Hanukkah!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Hi everyone!! It's 18 and feels like 1. It's really windy. We're going for our walk this afternoon when it should be warmer (26)

I'm going shopping with Kathy. It's our annual day before Christmas shopping. Since that day is a Sunday this year we are going today.

I'll have to tell my WW leader I should get a commission for everyone joining the program.

I lost .8 this week and I have been gaining .2 or .4 for a couple of weeks before so this is a better way to go.

Hope everyone has a great day!!!!

Good morning!
Welcome Deborah, you'll find us a friendly and chatty group! Good for you, not letting other people determine how you should live your life!! Optin2 live is a great way to do this!! I'm Trudy, I live in central IL.
Liz, so glad you're feeling better today. We have had such strong wind the past 3 days!! Just howling! I joined the ww online program on Sunday. So far so good!
Joyce, it's nice that you didn't have all the kids yesterday. You have really been putting some cute pictures on fb of Andy with the ggc! Love them! When are you leaving for Pigeon Forge?
I know you'll have a good time. Even if it does rain. Is the whole group going again? How does Brenda think she'll like helping out in the office? Don't you hate being on the phone straightening out snafus?
Roz, sounds like your week started out really fun with the concert and your daughters birthday!
Sharon, glad you enjoyed your dinner out.
I'm going to go volunteer this afternoon. Looks like we may get drizzle and flurries today. Might as well be in a basement downtown if the weather is crappy!! (LOL)
I hope you all have a fantastic day!

Welcome Deborah. I think you will enjoy it here.
Peggy, I use the dough cycle on my bread machine and then bake the bread in the oven. I do still bake from scratch on some of my recipes. I like the feel of kneading the bread. It is a good way to get rid of stress. Yesterday was a sunny day with no wind and that was so nice. I did my 60 minutes of walking and dusted the furniture. I got the waste paper baskets all emptied and garbage and recyclables out for pickup this morning. Barb and I went out for dinner and had a really nice chat. I love my night out.

Hi Deborah and welcome to this wonderful team! Good Luck! I am Lizzie from NJ!

The wind woke me up at 3:11. It is 20 right now! There are 3 large sycamore trees in front of my condo that sounded like they were coming through the windows! Oh my! Yesterday I woke up at 3 with chills, stomach pains and diarrhea. I stayed in my chair all day wrapped up in my blanket. I feel better this morning.

After mulling it over for several days, I joined WW on-line. My weight is stuck. I already eat low-fat and clean. I need a jump start and hope it helps!

Hi to everyone!

Hi all, not sure if this is staying under the daily chit chat thread ( which is my intention) or posting as a new topic....but here goes....LOL

I live in Guntersville, Alabama and live with my daughter, son inlaw, a 19 year old grandson and a soon-to-be 11 year old granddaughter (birthday in January) -and 2 dogs! LOL

I opted to draw early SS to concentrate on launching a new business and now that I have (sorta) gotten to the point where I can see it taking place, I need to drop this weight once and for all so I can be in the best shape possible to keep up with what I am believing to be an amazing New Year on multiple levels!

A bit of my story is on my new SparkPeople profile page. If you visit - please leave a hello note! I love making new friends!

I was very active on SparkPeople about 10 years ago ( user name was DebbieDay) and I almost reached goal weight when 'life happened'......and in the process, I regained all the weight I lost plus extra and totally lose myself in the war zone my life had become.

BUT for past 2 years have been waking up to the fact that I did not need to settle for simply survival mode based on default settings other people in my life had determined. Instead I decided to Optin-2-Living ( thus where the O2 in my user name comes from) and here I am ..

Just set up this new account in anticipation for the new year ahead and plan on using the tools and support I know can be found her to rock 2018!

I am looking forward to meeting you and making new friends along the journey!

Be blessed!
.

Zone #3 Mission #3 Wednesday
Zone 3: The Main Bathroom and Another Room



I know you had this mission in Zone 3 last month, however it is a good idea to do this one often!

I want you to take 15 minutes to wipe down your door knobs, light switches and phones in your home. As many of them as you can accomplish in 15 minutes. If you need more time, take a break and go back for another 15. Use plain rubbing alcohol on a rag or something that is anti-bacterial to get rid of all of the germs and hand prints that have built up. Also, when wiping down the phone make sure you wipe down the mouthpiece as well.

Hi everyone..

Sunny and 50 here, but pretty windy. I think the mountain areas are getting snow again. Talked to Amy and she said the roads up there were pretty nasty this morning and only going to get worse with heavy snow coming in.

Watched Brynlee for a bit this morning so Brenda could go with Sam for her follow up ultrasound. Everything is A-OK! The spot they were concerned about has gone and the doctor said everything looks fine and he doesn't need to see her again. He was sure it was OK last time, but said he'd look once more just to be certain. They did a 3-D ultrasound and boy, does he look like his Daddy!!

Andrea doesn't work till 2, but I did keep Aspyn for a bit so she could go to WM for a few groceries. She took the older two with her. Brenda said she has to learn to take all her kids when she goes, but realistically that's a lot when she's by herself. I didn't mind.

Have to get my AAA membership straightened out. Got a bill saying it's due for renewal 12/31 but my membership card says it's good till 2/2018 and it's not the same membership number. I swear, I spend more time straightening out other peoples' screw ups! I know last year it was an issue because it was transferred from OH to SC, but these account numbers are both SC, Go figure!

Gwyn, I think I'll look into the online WW after the holidays.

Trudy, that was a sensible way to do lunch - sharing the appetizers like that. My chromebook isn't new, but you're right - it's needing the time to "concentrate" which doesn't happen often. LOL

Merri, I'm glad Mr. Ken likes his chromebook - Andy and I both love ours! Let me know if he figures out how to print from it. I guess it has to be printed from the "cloud" or something....one of these days........ Boy, I haven't had liver and onions for a long time. Might have to make some soon.

Peggy, mmmmmmm on the rocky road candy!!

Sharon, hope you have a great day. You are so faithful with your 60 min. of walking. I miss that.

Have a great day everyone!

Good morning in cyber space...it is 18 here and going to be sunny.

Our dr appointments went well. They do want to send Mr ken's urine in to some different lab tho as he is still having some blood in his urine at times...Just to make sure everything is ok...I aced my BP yesterday. So now don't need to go next Mon...Just on Dec 26th instead...

Mr Ken is still having trouble with his cell phone. One guy at Best Buy really knew what he was doing and actually deleted everything out of his phone including his minutes and time. So, the two other employees were on the phone for over an hour telling the Track phone com that it wasn't Ken's mistake but the employees....New kind of card coming in the mail once again....Darn things LOL...I really like our land line phone better. Never use a cell phone...I really don't have much patience with new things....

Joyce, Now Mr Ken can have a new project to try and figure out. He is going to see if he can print from his Chrome book now too...He loves his so much. I bet Aiyden had so much fun with Pa Pa cleaning....We so miss the little ones here....

I sure hope we have ONE free day today and we can just stay home!! Mr Ken is going to make liver and onions...He thinks he needs two pans so he can salt his and not mine...Let him do what he wants and he will be one happy camper....

Good morning,
I had such a nice time at the Y girls get together. We each ordered an appetizer and shared them. Good way to do it. Then we had the waitress just divide it 8 ways. So we all had an $11 lunch and that included a very nice tip for the waitress. It was good enough that the waitress came back into the room and hugged each one of us.
I'm off to volunteer in a half an hour. Then I may go to the Y this afternoon. I'm fighting a cold. I really don't feel very good right now.
Joyce, your chromebook is new isn't it? I'll bet you can figure out how to use the printer from it. I figured out how to print from my phone. If you EVER have some time to concentrate on it! (LOL)I'll bet Aidyen really enjoyed helping Andy clean that store room. Yay on the $100 off the rent.
Gwyn, I think you're right about baby steps to get with the program!!
Peggy, what craft are you working on? It's nice that your cousin's daughter is keeping up the craft night tradition.
Everyone have a great day.

Good morning everyone!!! It is 39 and showers so no walk for us today. We walk in the cold but not the cold and rain.

Mary and I are going over to Patty's for WW's and lunch.

I'm not sleeping over tonight because Jerry likes to take our car when he drives across the county to band practice tonight.

I have to make Rocky Road candy when I get back tonight. I'm bringing it to the Archives Christmas party on Thursday.

Do you make the bread in the bread machine Sharon?

Yesterday was windy and nasty. We got a little rain and snow so it is slippery again. A little clipper system went through. I did my 60 minutes of walking and did 3 loads of laundry. I made a loaf of whole wheat bread to go with my soup and it turned out real good.

Hope you enjoyed the craft night Peggy. Happy for Jared getting the job, maybe it will turn into something even better for him.

Brenda worked at the office for a few hours. Wasn't bad, Aspyn slept the whole time, so just had Adalyn. Aiyden went with Andy to clean out that storeroom for the complex mgr. Got it all done and she was really pleased....said "Bless your heart!!" LOL Hey, it knocked $100 off our rent for January, so definitely worth the effort!

I printed off my Christmas card labels and a few other things I needed to have. My old computer is soooo slow it takes a long time to get stuff like that done. Probably because of the hundreds of pictures on it that I need to get off on a flash drive! But it's the only one hooked up to the printer. I haven't figured out how to print from my chromebook.

Hope everyone had a good day.

Zone 3: The Main Bathroom and Another Room


As you know that Zone 3 is the main bathroom and another room in the house.

Today that other room is the laundry area. Take 15 minutes and straighten up the laundry area. Put away the stray hangers. Wipe down the washing machine and dryer. Toss out all those empty detergent and fabric softner bottles that you have meant to take care of. You know what you need to do, just set your timer for 15 minutes and get busy!

Hi everyone!! Just getting on now.

I have been running around all day. At 7 am we did the grocery shopping, came home and put it away, had a cup of coffee and half of a WW's breakfast bar and left for the Archives. I had the rest of the bar at our coffee break

When I got home Jerry and I went walking and ate lunch when we got back.

Jennifer and I went to visit my sister Mary.

Jared had to go into Manhattan to Pratt for a job interview. He will be teaching art for four hours on Wednesdays for 15 weeks. He was happy to get it. Thank you Jesus.

Tonight is craft night at my cousin Carol's. She is keeping it up in honor of her Mother, my cousin Beverly who died last March.

Good Morning.

Cold and sunny here. Supposed to get up to 50 though I think.

Off to Brenda's to babysit so she can go over to the office for awhile.

Merri, yes, it's super thin and I guess the "smart" refers to all the programs that are a part of the system.

Trudy, I know I'll need Austin to show us what ours will do, too! LOL

Good morning,
We have cold again today, imagine that!! Mid Dec. (LOL)
Joyce, I bought a smart tv last year. I love it!! You will too, it takes a bit of time to discover all that it will do. I'm sure I don't know all mine will do! But, my son is coming. He will help me explore!!
Today is our Y girls get together. There is a restaurant about 5 miles from here that has a small private room. We've reserved that. It should be a good time.
Well, I joined the WW online yesterday. I printed out the list of over 200 foods that are no points value. I hope I can get on board with this! And start going to the Y more regularly. Get er done, as the saying goes!!
Everyone have a great day!

Good Mon morning. It is only 25 here and snowing very lightly. I guess it we will get some of that white stuff later today.

Mr Ken has to go to the urologist this morning and than I have to just go to the drs office and have the nurse check my BP again...I will see our dr on the 28th....

Our DD Kim in town here just told me last night that her Mother in law had a stroke while visiting her son in FL. She is 85 young. Wow, never would have thought that. She is still working as a hair stylist and very active....She is suppose to go to a rehab place today still in FL. She lives in Kenosha here....

Joyce, That sounds like one great gift for Andy. I'm not sure what you mean by a smart TV tho....Just the same as the newer ones? But more options on them? I know it has to be super thin tho?

Yesterday was a nice day with sunshine, warmer temperatures and no wind. It will change today. I did my 60 minutes walking and gave Hailley her bath. I baked bread, a pumpkin dessert and soup for dinner. I also did some small cleanup chores around the house and then watched the football game. We weren't so lucky this time. We lost and I was sad but next week is another game so hope we rally then.

Hi everyone....

Pretty quiet day here. Only had Adalyn for a while this morning and that was it. Did some crocheting on the afghan I'm hoping to get done for Sam and Austin. About half way there.

Austin went and got Andy's Christmas gift for me. Got him a new Smart TV. The one we have we bought when we retired. Austin had suggested getting one awhile back, so figured it would be a good Christmas gift. Austin said they're like computers these days with all the programs built right in. Probably need a lesson in using it. LOL

Trudy, I think a party for your son is a great idea! As you said, less running around.

Roz, I'd love to hear your concert!

Peggy, I don't blame you for not getting out in the bad weather!

Merri, I used to use my Forman grill all the time, don't know why I got out of the habit. Have to get it out again!

Liz, that doesn't sound bad for online WW. I may have to look into that.

Hope everyone has a great evening........

Zone 3: Mission #1 Monday



It is time to clear off the flat surfaces in the bathroom. This means the edge of the tub, the counter tops and the back of the toilets. We have a tendency to let things pile up on these areas and usually it is just clutter. Toss what you can and put away the rest! Those shampoo bottles, hair ties and cosmetics. You know what belongs!



Zone 3: Mission #2 Tuesday



As you know that Zone 3 is the main bathroom and another room in the house.

Today that other room is the laundry area. Take 15 minutes and straighten up the laundry area. Put away the stray hangers. Wipe down the washing machine and dryer. Toss out all those empty detergent and fabric softner bottles that you have meant to take care of. You know what you need to do, just set your timer for 15 minutes and get busy!


Zone 3: Mission #3 Wednesday



I know you had this mission in Zone 3 last month, however it is a good idea to do this one often!

I want you to take 15 minutes to wipe down your door knobs, light switches and phones in your home. As many of them as you can accomplish in 15 minutes. If you need more time, take a break and go back for another 15. Use plain rubbing alcohol on a rag or something that is anti-bacterial to get rid of all of the germs and handprints that have built up. Also, when wiping down the phone make sure you wipe down the mouthpiece as well.



Zone 3: Mission #4 Thursday


Today we are going back into the office, computer area or desk area! Take 5 minutes to empty your trash can and take a feather duster or dust rag to the room. It is ok if you have piles and you are still working on the clutter, just dust around the stuff for now to get rid of the dusites that have started to get really comfortable in there. You get extra bonus points for sweeping or vacuuming the room as well! Set your timer for ten minutes and don't get sidetracked!


Zone 3: Mission #5 Friday



Today is the last day in Zone 3.
Your mission for today is to do a five minute declutter mission. No big deal, just grab a trash can and toss anything in the bathroom and your most cluttered room that you can for five minutes. When you are finished, that is it. See how much you can toss in 5 minutes.

Hi everyone!!
Roz, it sounds like your concert is going to be great!! I love listening to choirs sing! Enjoy, are you having a dinner too?
Merri, I'm sure glad you've been able to get the bp under control some!! Knowing your triggers will help with that too!! Enjoy your burgers. I use my George Foreman grill all the time. It's great to make grilled veg. too, I'm told. My niece does it all the time. I haven't tried it because I just haven't thought of it when I was using the grill!!
Liz, that $19.95 a month doesn't seem too bad for ww. I may sign up for 6 months and see what happens!! Thanks for the info. I can see why the in-person meeting wouldn't work for you!
Joyce, glad you were able to get some Christmas done!! I got my cards done yesterday. I'll mail them tomorrow.
I'm going to have a party for my son when he comes. I think that's a good way for people to see him. Maybe we won't have to run around so much this way!!
It's pretty here today. It's just very cold. The wind chill is 25. I got up with a stuffed up head. I'm taking Zicam. I hope it does its job!!
Peggy, sounds like you made a good choice staying home today!! Ice is NOT fun!
Sharon, it sounds like you're getting things done around the house. It's always nice to have those household projects done, isn't it!!
Gwyn, you've lost a lot of weight. Were you on ww the whole time? If I could lose 40 lbs, I'd feel like a rock star!! (LOL)
Everyone have a good day.

We are having some showers here but they don't last too long
.
I'm as excited as a little child about our Christmas concert this evening.
We are doing a Christmas song in Spanish and it is really lovely, the beat is so jumpy that you cannot stand still while singing it.!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hope everyone is having a great Sunday
Stay blessed!

Hi everyone!

Spent most of yesterday trying to get more organized for Christmas. Did some online orders, etc. Today Austin is getting a smart TV for Andy for me. The one we have still works, but we bought it when we retired and it's an older type, naturally. Decided it's time to upgrade a little.

I hope to get to Christmas cards today - see how that goes.

Last night we went to that neighborhood light display we'd seen last year. I don't think as many homes participated this year, but still there were a LOT of really gorgeous ones. The kids enjoyed it and at the end they had a Santa that came to the cars to greet the kids, so that was neat. They collect toys and canned goods for charity as you enter the neighborhood, so it's a nice thing to participate in. Brenda had thought about going to a Christmas parade this afternoon, but I think she changed her mind. It's rough - Jim is out and about all week and he just wants to relax and she's cooped up all week with the kids and just wants to get out! LOL I don't think it'll be as bad now that she's helping the complex mgr. That'll get her out more.

Sunny and blue skies today finally - had a couple of really gloomy days, but no snow. It's 39 here now.

Next weekend is our Christmas trip to Pigeon Forge. They're calling for rain Sunday - the Dollywood day - hope that changes!

Have a great day everyone!!!

Good Sunday morning every one. It is only 23 here and not going to get much warmer.

Peggy, I have the fear of falling now too with both of knees being replaced. For some odd reason I fell right next to Mr Ken here by the computer. Poor guy, I feel right on him LOL...Maybe I was leaning on the computer chair and it moved!! My biggest problem is getting up now without kneeling on my two new knees.....Oh what I site it was LOL..Only my pride was hurt...

Yesterday Mr Ken & I both thought it might be a good idea to try and cook the hamburgers in the George Forman. Boy, did they ever turn out good....So now today, we are going to try our pork chops again....So far what I have been eating is keeping my BP down quite well....Also the new med they put me on too so my anxiety is better too...

When we were in Best Buy and the music seemed loud...I just walked over by the appliances and it didn't see as loud over that way. Less people over there too...I guess I just have to learn how and where to go to keep this BP down...

I got most of the Christmas cards done. Mr Ken said it was best to cut way back this year too...Easier for me too....Mr Ken went and helped his brother with a ceiling light in the apartments that his brother is in charge of...so I did the cards than...Nice and quiet in the house and didn't have to keep running by Mr Ken to hear what the heck he is saying LOL

Morning Ladies! Well, it snowed heavily all day yesterday. but we only wound up with 4". The streets are mostly clear. I think the ground was simply too warm.

It is 23 here this morning and looks like a winter wonderland. Just beautiful! I plan to stay inside and needlepoint and knit.

Thanks for the info Peggy. I looked WW up and it is $19.95 a month for a 6-month membership with the first month free and no joining fee. But that is only for on-line, not in-person. The meeting near me is upstairs in the Freehold Mall. I don't think I could make it in-person. I would love to try it but I can't walk that far. My problem really isn't the food (I eat healthy), it is the fact that I can't walk very well and my exercising is very limited. I have to think about it.

Good morning everyone!!! It's 28 this morning

We stayed home from Church this morning because it's snow and ice to get out of our house and then we walk. I have more of a fear of falling than I used to have before I had my knees replaced.

We're just staying in today and watching the world go by.

I like going to the WW meeting too. To me it is time to interact with a different group. It's something I do for me.

I really like weight watchers. my weight loss is going slow but it is going. Even going to something like TOPS ( take off pounds sensibly) really helps. going to a group in person helps me think about losing weight, how to make changes and hold me accountable. t

it does not matter how slow you go as long as you do not give up

If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it you can become it

Yesterday was a nicer day. It was a little warmer and not windy. The sun was bright and it looked beautiful. I did my 60 minutes of walking and cleaned out and organized some of the things I have put together for the Boy's Ranch that are in the front porch closet. I also did some other little organizing projects and did some reading and a little cross stitching. It was a peaceful day and I am happy for every one of those that I have. Have a great Sunday.
