You two have been very busy I see.
First: glad all worked out for you and your brother. Glad he had a nice birthday.
So glad your husband is doing well. Hope he gets to come home today, I know how being in hospital is.
Sorry for my absence. Monday went into hospital and just got out yesterday. They found I have AFib and am now on coumadin and other meds. I am still having issues and they said I might be one of those people that have to live with the heart doing this all the time. But are hoping it might go back into rhythm on its own.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

I'm very happy you'll have your husband home soon. All will be well, don't worry! It's an excellent thing your daughter can step in and you can go to work and get your mind little bit off the entire thing. We were supposed to get t-storms so I didn't go walking tonight. Will have to do something physical tomorrow so am looking forward to a cooler weather. My brother will be home tomorrow (Friday). The situation between us is much better following his Birthday. I have some errands to run tomorrow morning but then will be home until evening.

My husband is doing well and he might be home tomorrow. We will see. Daughter is on stand by to bring him home while I go to work. I know he will need rest and he is having a bit of pain but wants to come home. I just want all to be well so he doesn't have to do this again with more needed to fix it. Scary. I will just maintain here at home and see how all plays out. Hope to feel that the weather breaks by morning. I can use a few days of non humid.

This is for the 2nd. Missed the time change but needed to let you know I did well on all items but didn't track as time didn't allow. Spent most of the evening at L&M with my husband as he was taken there by ambulance this afternoon. Took a while to find out what was going on. He had a collapsed lung. They put in a chest tube and he is now resting a bit more comfortable in his room. He will spend the next 3 days there. Hopefully this will be the end of that but who knows. He has C O P D and it weakened the lung. What an end or beginning of labor day. I guess we aren't going to Massachusetts this weekend to visit with family. Hope your day was better.

Took my brother out to dinner tonight because his Birthday is actually today. Didn't have anything other to eat today except for sweetened condensed milk. No exercise. Yes water.

I spent the day writing. Turns out I don't eat that much when I write. Went out walking to the park. Brother liked the gift and I told him of what I wanted to make him and that I would do it in small portions on your advice. Have to eat something now because I barely ate today but fixed a sweet potato for something nutritious during the day. Keep cool!

I went over on calories but I had to have something. This heat is not helping me as I am retaining water like crazy. Puffy feet. I am with feet up and hoping that all goes well to the end of this Friday. Enjoying the job and the students. Need to bring another fan in the room tomorrow. The floor fan I brought today was a problem as the blade broke off and the tape didn't hold. I guess it is toast now.

I did a bit of watering and gardening. Lots of getting to some small things needing doing. Cooked dinner and made the chocolate icebox pie again. All is well. Good you got your brother something he could use. The pictures can be done slowly for another time.

Family album on a thumb drive isn't happening: I got him a color cartridge for his printer, an expensive cool card that flashes when pressed on and a gift bag for which I had to go out twice today. I have 22 days on which I exercised (mostly walked) this month. Looking very much forward to September, pumpkin lattes and foliage colors. Happy the job is working out for you KD!

I have cooked eggplant by dipping sliced pieces in egg and then Italian bread crumbs and baking with a little spaghetti sauce so it will soften enough to be great. Served with angel hair pasta. I had a relaxing day and ready for school tomorrow. I enjoyed yesterday but didn't get on the computer as I was really tired out. Worked at my friends with watering with a little weeding then to CVS and to base to get gas when my husband called and said that the dryer stopped working. Well they are sending a new electronics panel. If that doesn't work then I will get a new dryer. This is the only way I will change the washer even if I have to pay for 2 new pedestals.

Any tips on making eggplant that doesn't require tons of oil? I tried baking it first in slices at 350 for half an hour on each side and then continuing cooking in a pan with little bit of oil but that didn't work. Should I soak it first in a water-salt solution???

Sounds like you both have been very busy.
I have been sewing and watching granddaughter. I made 2 wallets so far and a zippered bag for my sister-in-law(she ask me to make her one to match the purse I made her). Working on a purse today and hope to cut out a few pot holders to put together this week. Also have a item I want to make out of my plastic canvas, so hope to work on that this week also. Sale is only 13 days away, so need to keep busy. LOL

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

My printer broke some time last week and I was figuring out what to do this morning. The computer man I called said not to bother him but get a new one for $80. I have to say it's been very good because I've had this printer for at least 7 years and I got it used for free from Craiglist so I cannot, really cannot complain. In the meantime my brother let me hook up wirelessly to a printer in his room but I can't use resume paper with it. Other than that I just got back from walking and am hoping to fit in a shower before my service starts. Hope you both are having a great weekend.

I ended up going out with my brother and our friend for her birthday to a restaurant in Wolcott. It was unexpected but not so bad as usual which is 5 minutes notice with my brother to which I usually say no. I think we all had a good time and it was very nice. My brother was at his best and corrected me only once. Which is all to say I have 0s across the board because the dinner came at a time I was about to go out walking and instead of water I had sweetened iced tea because that's what I always have when I go out. I took a doggie bag so I have dinner for tomorrow now.

I was tired of waiting for the dinning room to be back to normal so I brought in the table and chairs into the house myself. Then took the leaf out of the kitchen table and returned it to the attic. sweep the floors and then sat down to cool off. Good day at school and will like this position a lot for the next month.

I craved a bit of cheese today and had a snack after school of cheddar. Not a lot but it took me over fat. I enjoyed the second day of school and it will be fine to work the first 28 days. Then if I get a break a few days it will be OK. I count gardening as it requires a lot of movement and at time lots of bending. I walk a lot as I have a little over 1/2 acre all under vegetation not forest. Other than the lawn mowing it has been all mine to maintain.

Dancing and gardening count for sure! That is so nice of SparkPeople to consider all activities and not just the gym. I finished the novel today and it's back at the library. Dietland is a book about a young woman who's around 300 lbs and scheduled for a bariatric surgery. She counts calories and is obsessed with her weight or rather being thin and at 125 lbs. She has a closet full of clothes for after the surgery. She lives in New York and works for a girl's magazine answering letters to the editor. This is how the book starts. I'm not telling you anything more because you might want to read it and I don't want to spoil it for you. It is the first published novel by Sarai (Sa-RAY) Walker. It's great you're off to a good start for the new school year!

I have been thinking, I think I can count my line dancing and gardening as exercise. So I have a 1 for water, healthy choices and exercise, every monday I do line dancing and it is a work out. Then I do garden every other day or sometime everyday and that is another work out for me.
Glad your first day went well. Grandsons had a few bumps in the day but were all happy with their first day.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

It was a good first day and tomorrow will be the same as we then will see all the student we will have. I got the room ready and charts change in 1st block since I only had 1 student. Not so tomorrow. I was able to get out and work in my friend and my gardens. Tired and may go to bed earlier tonight. Nothing new will happen on the news so all is good.

Thank you both. I am sure today will be a great day and happy one. Have lunch with brother and his wife(hope she likes the purse and matching wallet I made her) and then supper at center with my friends there.
I would see if library will renew it for you over phone, so you can enjoy the read instead of rushing through it.
Happy first day back to work(school). Grandsons were very excited to be heading back today. Wow 2 in high school and 1 in jr high. Can not believe they are that old. :)

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

Yes, I renew items all the time online but I'm not sure if that's good for 7 day loans because they operate differently. Will see. I think it's doable to have it read by Friday if nothing else comes up. We have a great library and what's so great is that all the libraries in northern-central CT are connected so you can get any book out of any other libraries locally. I used to buy books more but then they turned up to be so heavy to move with and they take space so right now my first place to check for books is the library. But I love hardcovers so if there's sth new the library doesn't have, I'll buy it.

Did 2 1/2 hours outside as this was my last no schedule day. Boy was I drippy after that amount of time. Then in to watch a movie and work on puzzles and finish reading the paper. Now that I have the dining room back it had to be dusted and vacuumed. I finished going through the books and other items on the bookcase last night so got them bagged up and stored until the library can take them. I still want to do more and have maybe another week but work starts tomorrow and I have to be grateful. I know others are still having to wait for openings. Hope you had a great Birthday. Can you call in a renewal to your library for the book so you can keep it longer. I use to do that and they would renew it for me.

I think I'm happiest if I can get a great book that I can devour. Reset was OK to see that so many other people in different fields experience the same job search blues. As far as the advice I'm not sure because I checked and the author is on his 3rd job since publishing the book 1 year ago. But it was definitely a good read and not really a smart thing to do because the book is due in 3 weeks and I have a novel that's due Friday (7 day loan). So I immediately started on the novel and it turns out it's a great read by a brand new author Sarai Walker. The novel is called Dietland and deals with weight loss and women's issues so far that I've read.

Sorry was not here. But very busy and having a few issues with computer. Just have not had time to look into it. Starting to watch granddaughter again. So need to work things out at center, need people to take over on days I can not get there. As of friday Mary will be back in college and will not be able to help me watch Ari, so all will fall back onto me. I just do not like the thought of giving up something that has brought me such joy, but I do love my granddaughter. Caught in the middle again. Tomorrow meeting my brother and sister-in-law for birthday lunch and then for the last cook out at center. I think it is a nice way to spend my birthday. Catch you all soon.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

I didn't even log in into SP yesterday. Didn't do much. Not sure what it was but I was blue all day and only read a bit and went to my routine dr appointment. Sunday I had 1s for water, exercise and healthy choices but yesterday for water only. Looking forward to a better day today. Good news is my aunt is back home from a gallbladder surgery and she's doing well. I might get to talk to her today.

I worked for about 2 hours at my friends yard. Talk about sweat - well I dripped for sure. Tomorrow I will try to put in deep shade grass seed again. I was told that the sun is needed for the seed I used last time that is why it doesn't grow. Last day to do something that takes time with the sun up. I need to get the driveway crack sealed as the leaves will be coming down in a month and I don't want to play with them. Worked didn't snack so all good,

I have rested a bit and then started looking at the books on my shelves and bring down the amount as it is getting crowded and most of the cookbooks we don't use at all. I brought some of them home from mom's estate but not using them is not helping with my clutter look. I really want to put some of my reading books on the shelves. It is really strange to have so much quite here. Looked at arranging the blocks today but need to find a piece that can go between them. Friend coming tomorrow so will ask her opinion.

I felt like I'd gained 5 lbs last week but the scale said no: no weight gain. I am definitely bigger but it doesn't show on the scale. Just got back from the park where I walked, hiked to the rose garden and wore wrist weights which I really like. My brother's home which is uneventful and I was reading. I'm reading this book, it's called Reset, about a journalist/PR guy who was out of work for a prolonged period of time and what his tips are for dealing with it. He's physically located in Westport, CT. The book is rather recent: 2014. Other than that I have a novel that's due Friday called Dietland that I haven't started on yet. To the great week ahead!

I ended up getting black zippers, but the green is so dark it should be ok.
Good luck with the photo album.
Rest, once school starts there will be no resting. LOL They go back wednesday this week. They went back same time last year. On my birthday. LOL

I was able to finish the blocks and get all the gardens watered including my friends. I made a new dish tonight for dinner that tasted like Italian sausage pizza in a zucchini shell. It was good. I will rest tomorrow as I face the last few days of my summer schedule, which is usually whatever I want to do. Wednesday is the start of 28 school days of work. Then we see what else may come up. It is usually slow at the beginning of the year. Hope you got what you needed to finish up the wallets. Go luck with the album. Sounds like a lot of work.

Went for a swim at the gym and looking to read. Looks like both of you have interesting things to do and are productive. Dark green is a very nice color and so is a colorful quilt. It looks like next week I'll have to start scanning pictures for the family album for my brother. If for some reason it doesn't work I'll have to come up with something different for his Birthday. He's at the beach today. Not sure if he's going tomorrow as well because of the weather.

Put the twinkies down. LOL Glad you got new books and hope they are what you are looking to read.
Sounds like a very colorful quilt. Looks like you will get to go out after all today. Sun is shining.
I got all the interfacing ironed on to the wallets, so will start to sew them today. But need to run out and get 2 more zippers, do not have any that are right color for 2 wallets, they both need a dark green. So will sew the one I do have zipper for today.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

Even though I had snacks today I didn't go over. Stayed in for most of the day and cleaned then worked on quilt. I am almost done with the blocks and will have to decide on what color to use for the in between strips. I think I will use the colors of all the blocks for a strip around the connecting strips. It will be a truly crazy quilt with all the colors. I haven't had to buy a thing so far. May take out the kayak tomorrow for a spin. We haven't been out in a while but the weather will tell. If it is too bad then just being out is tough.

The books didn't pan out and I had to return them and get new ones but should be all set now. Went out clothes shopping mainly to look at pants and sweatshirts but didn't get anything. I have exercise and water but the others I'm not sure of especially with 5 twinkies down so far :)

Sorry went MIA, but was so busy just did not find time to get here. Picked a bunch more cherry tomatoes and hopefully got the tomato plants staked up better. They were pulling the tomato cages down, they are so heavy. Waiting on a few yellow squash to get a bit bigger and for the big tomatoes to ripen. They are so slow this year.
Glad to see you both are doing well.
I will have both at the sale in nov, or you can see them at sale next month. It is the meeting house rocks one in norwichtown on the green. If you want more info just let me know. :)

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

OK I was bad and when my son didn't eat the last piece of chocolate pie I did. Only over by 20 calories but put in the work today. I worked outside for 2 1/2 hours with harvesting from the garden to put up the green beans later. Then decided before the wood I had left to chip got wet again I chipped it up and finished the blueberry mulching with it. Now if I get some I will place on flowerbeds. Most are deep in leaf mulch now so no real need. Got a hair cut and got the car washed as the lake sand will not be in it again now. Hope you hear from someone on a job soon. Mine has been extended to Oct. 5th.

Was in need of a distraction last night and went to Stew Leonards. Not sure if you've ever been to this store. There are only a couple of them in CT and one in NY. It's a grocery store although they call it a dairy store. Prices are expensive but they used to have a couple of items I really liked. It turns out they no longer have spinach or sth other stuffed croissants and some of the other stuff isn't as good as it used to be. But I'm glad I made the trip and saw it for myself how it is now. About hair: I was dark blonde for the summer and that went very light with going to the pool so I went brown again yesterday and hate it but a couple of trips to the pool and I'll be all set. I think it's so great to have a vacation knowing there is a job to go back to although you do so much for the house, garden and the family I'm not sure if that's really vacationing.

I was able to have lunch with my friend and not child to take. she went to her other grandma's house. I say this as we are in a problem area as my son's relationship has hit a stone wall. I may have only had granddaughters for the summer. Hold for more info. I had the boys leave and now this!!! Got a lot of errands and friends house taken care of. Had my dream this morning of 2 hours to clean the kitchen and floors without anyone walking on it this morning. Yah me. Glad for your dad. I will look forward to seeing these purses and wallets at the sale. They sound nice. Quilt is coming along slowly but that is the best way. May be a couple of days of working with the weather the way it is going to be. I will collect vegetables in the morning and maybe put up some beans then quilt. I only have a few days left to do as I wish. Hair appointment at 12:30 to tame the growth. Then I will be ready to start!!!

My Dad told me Friday he'd have his sinuses operated on today Wednesday. He didn't ask my opinion, just told me so I didn't give it although I am very much against anything surgical unless it's absolutely necessary. I prayed about it yesterday specifically and what I "received back" was to be at complete peace. I was so much at peace that I completely forgot about the whole thing until I received a call from my Dad as I walked in the door from the library: he cancelled the surgery! The entire thing was completely unlike my Dad because he's very much into holistic approaches, nutrition and supplements. I'm very grateful to God for changing his mind. So that's my major news of the day. I have a couple of promising applications in and am starting to receive some responses from my latest resume re-postings online which I did over the weekend. I'm sure in due time I find sth.

I am so glad your brother liked it. Still hoping you get a job soon.
You do a lot outside and I am sure you are very proud of your yard.
I need to get busy and get my wallets and purses finished before the sale next month.

I was able to have a low level day with a bit of watering and equipment fixing in the morning. Not snacking today was a good thing as I made a chocolate cream pie and was able to have a piece without going over. Meeting with a friend for lunch tomorrow as I wasn't suppose to have kids but 1 is still here. I will have lunch and she will join us toward the end. Glad your brother like what you got.

He liked it and I'm very happy with that because he's hard to please. He's getting the vac today: it's just arrived when I was at the gym. Went for a swim to be out of the house for a bit. It's amazing how much work there is with the house and a garden. You're getting more than your share of exercise and activity with that plus you're doing sth that others can enjoy.

I thought that I was doing well today but dinner was a bit more calorie and fat loaded. I was able to work outside for 2 hours this morning but it was hard to breathe at times. A little less tomorrow will do. I transplanted 2 bushes and planted 2, sprayed the apple tree and weeded a bit while garden in the shade. Watered where needed. A shower helped to cool me down then worked on puzzles and quilt. Sorry you can't find a job but still you should give whatever you want to you brother.

My Dad couldn't understand why I'm going out of my way to get my brother nice gifts for his occasions while we're at odds but the thing is my brother makes a big deal out of my occasions. Because the car vac will be delivered tomorrow I had to have sth for today and got him a portable cell phone/computer charger. I got the idea from flipping through coupons and it turns out there is a whole rack of those at BestBuy and you can go as expensive or as cheap as you want on those. This is sth he can use while he's camping because he'd complained several times about not having enough time in the car for the cell phone to charge while he was away. I think I'll go easy on the spending for his Birthday and make him a family album on a thumb drive unless I can come up with sth better by then.

I can't understand why my post yesterday didn't take. Anyway I had not made calories and fat. Lots of exercise with two yards to work on. Over did at D & D. Today was watch rented DVD's and relax as I am tired. Heat will not help us this week. I will work on quilt and take girls to lake.

I got rejected Friday after the latest interview and put more applications in. There isn't as much activity over the weekends but I ran my searches today as usual. The appointment to see the apartment is off because I was supposed to call today which I did and the woman was completely not with it. She had told me that Saturday evening she'd know when to show the apartment Monday but she doesn't. The highlight of my day was going to the grocery store and ordering new books from the library. I have 4 of them coming so am excited about that. My brother went to the beach in the early afternoon so it's just me in here. He says I can stay here until the end of the year and not pay rent anymore beginning in September. Not a bad deal but I'd like to move out sooner.

Nice to see you pop in and visit. :)
I am taking the day off and just washing clothes and cutting material to make some wallets for the craft sale next month. Been so busy lately, that it feels good to just slow down.

Thank you! Went for a swim, talked with my Dad, prayed, did laundry. Nice with all the vegetables that are coming in for you now. I don't use alarm clock on the weekends so am looking forward to sleeping in. I have a lot of pictures from the parks here so I might post some of them here next time.

Tomatoes are slow to ripen. I am getting a handful of cherry but no big ones yet. Squash are starting now so will get a few before end of season. Eggplant are so tall and looks like we might get at least 5 or 6 more before end. Hope blood drive went well.
Hope you find both a job and a new place to live. :)

My brother is home today. Situation here is really bad and I'm looking to move out. There is an apartment share near by that I might be able to see Monday. Was able to apply for a couple of jobs today and am going out to the gym shortly.

I did a bit of gardening before the blood drive. Well I had to as the cucumber plants had fallen over and the sunflower had too. I quickly put in metal stakes and tied up the trellises to them. Then finished dumping the mulch out and cleaned up, I worked on a few accounting issues in the morning. Balancing the checkbook is not fun at al. It is nice when the garden gives you what you planted. We have tomatoes, beans, squash, and cucumbers. Still growing is the butternut and peppers as well as the eggplant.

Just got back from the park. Nice thing with an eggplant because I've been checking at the store and they don't have them so you can't buy one. I admire that both of you are making things such as quilts, wallets and purses.

Water department is drilling in the road in front of the house. I could get out but won't be able to get back in so am staying at home. Hopefully it's just one day thing and they'll be done before 5. Good thing we have water. Was expecting a package to come in but we didn't have mail yesterday and am not sure if the mailman was able to get through today. I sent a thank you note following the phone interview Monday but haven't heard anything back as far as taking the test.

I was able to clean the house and install the new part on the refrigerator since it arrived today. It was a struggle but after a time was able to take apart all the pieces that had to go on the new piece from the old one. More complicated than one would think. I was able to go through the fabric and sort it into color categories. Then pick 4 in each to use. 12 piles for the 24 blocks. New quilt underway. Caught up on the DVR's. Lovely rain. Sunshine tomorrow with a possible shower or two.

Haircut, grocery shopping, online shopping, clipping coupons: not much so far. I feel very fat today and having a small can of sweetened condensed milk didn't help that either. But I'm working on having less sweets and got those yogurts with chocolate on top so that should save calories. I got fat on ice cream and no longer do either ice cream or chocolate pudding but sweetened condensed milk still trips me. Other than that I do good. The leaves are starting to turn already but I'm enjoying the cooler weather today.

I was able to clean out things a bit then go out and put the scripts in at the base pharmacy. Then lunch and hit the yard. All tasks I wanted to do outside. trimming was the main reason and then ready for mother natures watering. I will work on quilt fabric combinations tomorrow while loving the rain. Cleaning too but that is not the main idea tomorrow. Glad you got even if it was short an interview. Maybe this will work out.

I was preparing and praying and the phone interview took 9 minutes... They said they would let me know about next steps which would be a written test and an interview with a hiring manager. Oh, well. I'm glad I made plans to go to the gym afterwards and just got back from a swim. I don't really swim: I use a back style I've taught myself and this way I "swim". I don't go often enough. Nap counts maybe not toward exercise but toward weight loss. Sleep is more important than exercise. I agree: let's all have a great week:)

That is a very beautiful view. That looks like such a pretty place to walk. Frozen veggies are better then canned and almost as good as fresh picked.
Sometimes we just need to take a nap. I have days like that and I find myself falling asleep in my chair. LOL
Hope we all have a great week.

I would have exercise points but a 2 hour nap doesn't count does it??? LOL I really needed that nap as there has been a lot of mental and emotional things happening with the going of the grandkids and getting family things done. Taught my lesson at church today and that was another part of it but I would believe that it was mostly the work I did outside yesterday. Here's to a good week for all of us.

Ended up going hiking to Castle Craig in Meriden's Hubbard Park. Burned major calories & didn't have time to eat. I think I have all 1s for today. Really nice that you'd make something from scratch from fresh vegetables. I mostly use frozen and the only saving grace is that it's the season for fresh tomatoes so I have that.

It was a quite day with no kids at all. I went out and weeded at will and worked in the garden removing bugs from the cucumbers and squash plants. I then went in and made a blueberry pie and while it baked I chipped up 2 large bags of the wood pile I had from the winter and spring. I still have about 1 bag left to get it finished up. Enjoying the yard. Still lots to be done so next week I will continue. It is nice to just do as needed and not worry about who needs what. I could have at least 1 granddaughter next week. The coming rain will help a lot. Good buys are always at JCPenney.

Went out to JCPenney for the big sale and paid $21 for a very nice pair of dressy pants and pantyhose. Went to Macy's too but didn't see anything I liked. Other than that I just got back from the park and am going into the service shortly. I might stay up late because there's a Night of Hope held in San Francisco by Joel Osteen and it will be streamed beginning at 10 p.m.

Well you two have been doing very good. Myself very busy did not even turn computer on yesterday. Have to run to car dealership and have them fix my air bags as they are on recall list. Finished the purse and matching wallet for sister-in-law's birthday, so ready when they want to met up.
Hope the kids had a great summer visiting with you all. It went by very fast. Glad you have work to start the school year off.
Good luck with the interview. Will be thinking about you.:)

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

Did well until dinner tonight and having dessert. I was able to do a bit of gardening in my yard then after my dentist appt. I went over to my friends to weed her flower beds and water some of the plants. Then off to the lake for the last time this year with grandsons. They leave tomorrow morning to fly to California for the next school year. Just about 3 weeks left before school starts here and my job starts.

I think I have all 1s for yesterday because I had very little food yesterday. Just didn't feel like eating at all. Today I finished the book. Don't agree with everything but still it was a very good read. Some of the examples in the book from other people's lives made me appreciate my situation better. Other than that interview prep, grocery store, hair color & a pedi and cooking. I made strawberry rice. It's rice with strawberries, little bit of sugar and cream. Next time I'll know to add strawberries toward the end when the rice is still cooking because they're supposed to be cooked. Today I added cut up strawberries to hot rice and let it sit. It was still good. It's a meatless summer dish or can be a dessert.

I was able to have a good report mammogram today. Took the kids to the lake, Daughter came over to see the kids and play a few video games. Then a game with us and Jake. It was fun. He does well with learning. Tomorrow is the last day before they leave. Both going and maybe both coming back next year. We will see as Alex who is 8 will be returning for sure. Gardening today with Alex. Good that you could get off sugar pills but if they help maybe you may want to continue. Good luck with the interview.

The phone interview is scheduled for Monday. I was at the employer's website this morning reading as much as I could about them. Tomorrow I'll be working with the job posting and reading up on the latest developments in the field in the meantime. Right now I'm taking a break from cleaning as it was high time to do it. The floors are done so I'm midway through. It's really a nice touch that SparkPeople gives you points and exercise minutes for cleaning. That really helps me out with it. Other than that I've been reading. What about your daughter is she still looking for a job or has she found one? It's speaks so nicely of you and your family that you're looking forward to living with them. But my brother was really good yesterday. Asked me if I needed anything from a supermarket and got me my frozen cherries for my morning smoothies. I always ask him if he needs anything when I go.

I was able to get my lesson ready for Sunday and then get the kids to the Lake before the little downpour. I will miss the boys and have two days left to make the most of it. Both are going back to California and then at least one will be returning next year to live here. I am glad of that.

Thank you! You brought me luck: reading is off for now because I have a phone interview coming up so am glad I got in as much as I did when I could. Just got back from a walk. I have water, exercise and healthy choices for today. Congratulations on lowering the sugar!

I am doing well and sugar is way down. So very happy and see that dr today. So think he will say I am doing a good job as well. I am not saving bills or junk like that any more, 6 mths and shred it. I am making a purse and matching wallet for my sister in law's birthday which is today. Wanted to give her something special and hope she thinks it is.
Good luck with jobs and enjoy reading your book.
Sounds like you had a busy couple of days. It is fun to be with family.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

Run my errands and searches in the morning and picked up the latest book by Bishop T.D. Jakes called Destiny and been reading ever since with a break to make a potato salad. I used to watch him on Day Star and decided after a long while that I don't like his preaching style but his previous book called Instinct was very good so am happy I got in on the latest one as well. It just came out today. I just read about how sometimes our circumstances may change but we're not caught up with them still thinking in the old ways. That's true of me. Hope your computer works fine & you get stellar lab results. I better start losing some weight and taking better care of myself because my appointment is coming up in October. In the meantime I'll have to make calls to officially change the doctor with the insurance company because my current one is moving to Florida in September. Previous one moved to Ohio after a year or so.

I did well with eating and had a lot of exercise on Monday with the gardens and lawn then today swimming with the kids at the lake. Doctors today for physical will get results soon. Don't expect any troubles. Last night so much trouble with the computer I gave up and put it away.

Applying for jobs, running errands but had time to go out for ice cream to a new place in town and watch a movie I didn't get to over the weekend. Downsizing is a very good thing to do but I went to the extreme with mine because I went from a huge 2 bedrooms with a dining room to a single room and as it stands I'm not even unpacked here because my brother takes all the space. Take it easy with throwing away old papers though because you never know when they might come in handy. I'll have to look up Essex because I remember the train but not the boat. Going out for a walk now.

I love that train and boat ride, it is fun and very relaxing. Glad you had such a great day.
Wow 4 miles and uphill to rose garden. That sounds like a great work out. Congrats.
I have started to task of downsizing my stuff and reorganizing my rooms. I am about 1/2 way thru bedroom and then the real challenge, my spare room(junk room)! But instead of thinking about how much there is to do. I am picking one thing and doing it and then more to next item, never looking at how much I still have to do but looking at what I have already accomplished and did it very well.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

Yesterday was busy and I was so tired last night no computer. We did the train then boat and back. Afterwards drove to Gillette castle for the tour. Then home for Chinese dinner take out upon husbands request. Family and celebration. So point wise water and exercise only. Today it was more layback and daughter came over to see the kids as they are to return back to California on Saturday. Game night also. Glad everyone is doing well enough even with the aches that come from a bit of exercise and fun.

I am really happy you had a good time at Mohegan and with your daughter and that you're feeling better. Another quiet day for me: was at home and just got back from the park where I did 4 miles laps and went up to the rose garden which is steeply uphill but I made a good time. Brother's at the beach but went with his friends. I think I'll be watching a movie now. Earlier I was able to get a jump start on the week ahead so I'm very happy with that. I don't like doing things last minute and always want to leave some time to spare.

I am doing well and feeling better. Staying away from greasy foods seems to be helping. It will help with weight as well. Went to late night bingo at mohegan sun casino and did a lot of walking with my daughter. I am paying for it today with all the aches and pain, but was so much fun and relaxing.
Glad you had a good and quiet day. That must have been a sight to see the steam coming off the roads.
It would be nice if there was some way to get folks back and posting here.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

Happy Birthday to your husband! I rode the train in Essex years ago and it was very picturesque there. I had a quiet day today at home with my brother at the beach. Yesterday felt like Saturday all day with my brother home and I find the weekends when he takes Friday off kind of confusing. All of a sudden today we got a downpour of rain that lasted a couple of minutes but was very abundant. I went out to the store right after it finished and the road was steaming way up high due to all the moisture and the heat. Was quite a sight and sth one might see somewhere in the south rather than here. Hope your tummy feels better!

Hello Everyone! It's been a busy week. My boss came back from vacation and I had to catch up on everything she didn't give me. I have been ready all of your post and I love the support. Again, thank you again for your replies about keeping this thread. I am trying to think of topics and other things to keep our team fun and supportive. We have so many people on the team and so few post. I am working on getting more to post. I love this team and CT! Have a great evening!

Happy Birthday to your husband. Hope he has a great day. Essex is a nice place, are you going to visit the trains there?
Sounds like you had a nice day. Walk in park is always a plus.
I am doing well, but really need to track food not just for the weight part but because something is making my tummy have issues. I thought it was coffee but it seems to be more. I am thinking anything fried or with any kinda grease in it. Had 2 pieces bacon the other day and a few hours later tummy was all messed up.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

I'm right here! Only 14 workouts in July. Need to step it up for August. My brother had a day off today and I took it easy myself. Just got back from the park. The neighbors are working on the attic and the roof. My brother said there were like 7 cars in front of their house last night but they are very quiet. If he didn't tell me I wouldn't have known it.

Hey where is AHLEANKIM? Hope all is well and she is just busy.
Sounds like fun being in the water and it can be very tiring. But is very good exercise.
Going do some prep work for the 2 wallets I am going to make. Need to cut the material and interfacing and then iron it on then get everything ready to sew them up.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

It's good you're both busy and productive. Nice with the job for September. I run my errands and stayed inside. July was not big on exercise for me. Looking forward to August!
