Family get together, hmm. Have a small family consisting of daughter, son in law and grand daughter. My sister lives 300 kilometres away. We only visits in the summer, we have great time when we get together. Usually my sis comes up before it gets too hot. Usually in June stays for a week, then I usually go to her place in August. We are both born in August and so is my nephew and his son.

The best: getting out and doing fun stuff with them.

The worst: feeling obligated to do things... even when they are way out of my comfort zone.

I agree with you, LESLIELENORE on April Fools jokes.
Thank goodness it only comes around once a year!

I don't know. I find most pranks to be rude. I guess I need to develop my sense of humor.

There are sit on top kayaks, which require very little bending. Try renting one from an outfitter and try one out!

I need to be near water, ocean, lake, creek, river, whatever!

Wish I had done kayaking. Now my knees are very sore and bending my legs to get in and out might not work.

New Question

How did you pick your goal weight?



I just think it's the best weight for me


It's what I weighed in the past


Someone I admire weighs that much


My health care provider helped me


I took a guess

This year I bought stuff because I thought my daughter and her boyfriend were coming here. They did not come and I have the tempting things left over! Oh those Hershey's kisses! I have stopped eating them but the big bag is still here. My husband asks for sweets pretty often. If I buy cookies, I get into them. We have the second box of cookies still not finished. Chocolate with chocolate cream inside. I give him 3 at a time, usually in the afternoon. He can't reach things because of his wheelchair.

He always wants ice cream after dinner. That is a weakness of mine, too. Lately I have been having the 100 calorie yogurt in the evening when he has ice cream. And frozen bananas can be whipped in a strong blender or Nutri bullet to make a banana "ice cream." Finally I am resisting the ice cream and substituting other things.

So, it isn't just at holidays. My problem is there most of the time. Someone mentioned freezing the candy. I think that would not even help me. emoticon

No more than usual. I don't like milk chocolate very much, and most Valentines chocolate is that kind.

I have my wedding & engagement rings but do not wear them. My earrings have to have gold studs, as I am allergic to base metals, nothing is more itchy than swollen ear lobes or any other part of my body that base metals touch.

I do have a lot of jewellery that my my daughter has made me. She sells her jewellery at various venues. She uses no base metals in the jewellery she makes.

I wear my engagement ring and wedding ring. Before retiring, I wore more jewelry. I have a fairly large collection of costume jewelry and a few precious gifts from hubby and my sister. My daughter on occasion still gives me jewelry. I do admire things that others wear, chris

No. I have a ring I wear most of the time that I inherited from my grandmother, and a few necklaces when I want to dress up, but that is it.
