Hi Joan,
I know what you mean about popcorn in your gums, it is a pain but I still love it I try and stay away from it as I only like it with lots of butter and salt.

Peanut brittle sounds lovely but of cause I wouldn't be able to stop at one.

I know you have a very busy week coming up with your moving stay safe and look after your self. Hope all goes well with Ruthann at the doctors. Hope all goes well with the move I will be praying for you, have fun.

Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
a picnic in the dessert, never thought about having one there. Glad you got out and enjoyed your day.
Ruthann made 4 batches of homemade peanut brittle yesterday, that I have no problem turning down due to peanuts, popcorn things like that play havoc on my dental work. Last time I ate popcorn the husk got wedged between my gum and bridge work and $300.00 later I decided, ''its juts not worth it." Live and learn. The candy one was for Terry's Mom, one batch for my oldest stepson Kevin cause he's taking Ruthann and I downtown tomorrow for her doctor's appointment, one batch for Terry to have and as Ruthann said ''I'm making Coty a batch not that he needs it, but if I don't it will hurt his feelings." I told her...none for me thank you.

Wanted to let you know that Ellie sparked mailed me and said she had to quite Sparks for awhile due to her dry eyes. I thought it was very nice of her to let us know. Rosie have a great day and if you don't hear from me tomorrow morning you'll know I did not take my computer with me.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Yes the kids do get lots of stuff for their birthdays. I don't do birthdays but I am always giving my grandkids presents it is getting harder as they have everything. lol.

Good on you Joan staying sugar free well done they must of been lots of yummy food around.

We went on a picnic in the desert and had a lot of fun, even though I had to wear a Abiya (long black rob) and it was very hot we had a great time.

Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
I hate that when I write a long post and then it gets eaten up by the cyber world. I've been having a ton of problems with ''pop ups'' on my computer.

Went to the Great Nephews birthday party with Ruthann yesterday afternoon, he was three last week. Rosie, that kid and his brother whose birthday was back in March got so much stuff, I just couldn't figure that one out. We never really celebrated birthday's when I was a kid growing up. Mom would let us choose what we wanted for a birthday dinner and what kind of cake we wanted, but no presents it was just way too much. Good news is I did not eat any cake and ice cream or pizza, so I felt good about that.

Have a great day.
Love,
Joan

Hey Rosie,
your right drinking lots of water does help. I feel so much less bloated this morning than I did yesterday. I'm enjoying my first cup of coffee with you this morning. Ruthann and her husband Terry are still in bed, but Terry will be getting up before too long he goes down to the local restaurant every morning and has coffee with the guys down there. We all it the ''Liar's club," emoticon Its just a bunch of old retired coal miners and farmers that get together, and my brother-in-law said, ''this is why we don't have a newspaper delivered, I can find out all the news before it ever hits the paper." lol lol lol.

This afternoon Ruthann and I have a birthday party to attend. Its one of our Great Nephews party he'll be 3 years old. So our brother called and asked Ruthann and I to come so that will be our thing for this afternoon, no birthday cake for me.

Hope your weekend is going well, and the sugar is not calling your name, I'm good down here without the sugar.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Drinking lots of water will help I think they use far to much salt in the food when you eat out, it doesn't matter how careful you are I always put on a lot of weight.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Love Rosie,

Here to another sugar free week we can do this.

Hi Rosie,
when you read my other thread you'll read that I feel as if I've already lost some weight since my weigh in and its true. I did drink a lot of water yesterday so that helps as well. Something else I have noticed is my belly does not feel as happy when I was eating out so much. I know of only one more time I have to eat out and that will be next Tuesday evening, Ruthann and I are taking one of my neighbor's out to dinner.
Hope you have a great weekend. Let's stay sugar free again this week.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I am also proud of you Joan, that you stayed away from desserts, and you will soon loss that 3pounds once you get settled and you don't need to go out for dinners, as most of it would be salt.

Have a great weekend hope Ruthann,s appointment goes well,

Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie, I got on the scale and I knew it was going to be up and it was 3 pounds, but I was expecting as much. I just proud that I did not order any dessert, and I'm always amazed at how much that nice hot cup of decaf can satisfy me. This is a new week and I get a new try at it again. Leaving later this morning for Ruthann's won't be back this time until sometime Tuesday when I bring Ruthann with me for her doctor's appointment on Wednesday. Hope you have a wonderful day.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,

Maybe on Monday you can have a sleep in since you don't need t go to work LOL. (I know you like to get up early do I am just kidding)

Have a great weekend and days with your family Joan can't wait to see more photos of your house.

Hope all is going well with you Elly,

Hey Rosie,
I had both lunch and dinner out last yesterday and this morning I am feeling bloated. I'm getting on the scale this morning no matter what. I did a lovely time with Dana last night and the meal was great and we had fresh brewed decaf with out meal it was WONDERFUL. Cannot believe that I don't have to go to work when Monday rolls around. I am going to miss it for awhile but once I can get started on my new home, I'll be a happy camper.
Hope you have a wonderful day.

Elly, hope all's well with you .

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Its always nice to get out and have lunch with friends, and good on you for staying away from the sweets, coffee always does the trick. The place you had lunch sounds so relaxing and lovely.

Hope your last day of work went well.

Good morning Rosie, I have to admit I'm getting tired of eating out, BUT, with that being said my friend Karen who I love with all my heart, is leaving for California on Saturday and she and I would not have a chance to see each other before I leave for good on the 27th, so Karen called yesterday and said, ''can we do lunch?" Well of course we can, and we went to the place on the river, the weather was perfect and we ate outside and watched the sail boats on the river and it was just perfect, I didn't even finish all my lunch I was so relaxed and before we knew it almost two hours had passed. Our dessert was fresh brewed decaf coffee, it was just the best afternoon yesterday.
Today is my last day working, I'm having mixed feelings about that, I did talk with the landlord yesterday afternoon, and he told me he was on his way down to the Broad St. house (my house) to pull staples out of the floor, where they removed the carpet. So hoping to get in and check it all out this weekend.

Hi Elly, hope all is going well with you. Your doing great without the sugar and always remember just how badly you feel when your eating the ''white stuff."

Love,
Joan

Hi Elly,
Well done staying away from that sugar, stress can really make us head to the sugar, I also find I can't have it in the house.

Hi Joan,
It would be so great if your house is ready for you and you can have a good look around this weekend, it is nice that they are trying hard to get it done.
You are having a busy week stay strong and stay of the sugar I know you can.

Love Rosie.

Hi Elly, emoticon for you not stopping at the store on the way home and picking up something sweet. For me the key is to NOT have sweet stuff in the house. You have just had an amazing N.S.V. (Non Scale Victory) emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi Rosie,
talked with Ruthann yesterday afternoon and she drove by my house and said all that nasty carpet was rolled up and laying on the carpet, and a barrel with empty paint buckets were sitting on the front porch. So maybe, just maybe they WILL have the house done by this weekend...wouldn't that be great.
I thought I only had lunches out on Monday and Wednesday, well got a call yesterday after I got home from having lunch with my WW leader and now I have a lunch today after work. Think I'll just go ahead and pack up the rest of my pots and pans. ;)

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan and Rosie.

I felt stressed and tired today and was really having a sugar craving attack. Oh well, now I'm at home there is nothing sugary to eat so I'm "safe" tonight. Maybe a bit more sleep will help.

Have a great Tuesday.

Hi Joan and Elly,
I hope it want take them to long to connect all the things you will need connecting when you get to Beaver Dam wow you haven't long to go also praying that your house will be ready for you when you move there.

Elly we were holidaying in East Africa about 20 years ago (my husband is from there) and we were in little huts on the beach and we had to make sure we kept all windows and doors closed or the Baboons would come and have a great time going though everything. So many tourist left their windows opened and the monkeys had a great time making a mess of everything.

Hope you both have a great day,
Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie, so sorry about that internet connection. I just realized that when I make my move, even if my house is ready to move right in, I'll be without cable connection until Time Warner can get there to hook my tv, phone and computer up. So I maybe out of touch for a few days, but I'll keep everyone posted.

Hi Elly, great job staying away from sugar,and ''Baboons eating the doctor's fruit," goodness, they must have heard it was zero points. ;) Glad he is safe.

Ladies have a wonderful day.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan and Rosie,

Sorry I feel off the page - things are going well. Another few sugar-free days have gone by, so I am happy about that.

Yes, Joan - you do sound like you've been very busy with many food challenges. emoticon Great job with it all! Is this a going away party as in retiring or are you just moving to a new location?

Rosie - I hope your internet issues have resolved. I work for an MD who does who travels and trains people, esp. in Africa, so it is always interesting to see if his internet will work. During his last trip baboons broke into his hotel room (6th floor of hotel with balconies) and ate his fruit. Thankfully they didn't attack him. At least in Saudi Arabia there are no wild baboons. emoticon

Hi Joan,
Been having trouble with my internet, been trying to get on yesterday and finally got on today but it just keeps cutting out. I wrote this post a few times and it just goes of into internet space so here I am trying again.

You do have a busy week, but it sounds like fun, you must have some lovely friends.
Keep having fun Joan and well done for staying sugar free so proud of you as I know it must be hard with all the outings you have been having.

Love Rosie.

Elly, have been missing you the last few days, hope all is well.

Hi Rosie,
the air sure has a Fall feel to it down here in Beaver Dam, so I'm sure its the same in Louisville. I'm heading back early this morning, and I cannot believe how many meals I have to eat out next week. On Monday, lunch with my WW leader, on Wednesday, I have lunch out with the Katz's then dinner out on Wednesday evening with my friend Dana. I know I can make good choices and I will, but that is just way too much eating out for me.
Have a great weekend, and let's stay away from the sugar.
Love,
Joan

You are so right we are the ones who has the last word on what goes in my mouth, I will keep saying that to my self.

Have a great weekend hope your well Elly and everything is going great with you.

Hi Rosie,
I was down .8 this week, I'll take it. Also had a NSV to tell you about. Yesterday my brother-in-law Terry his cousin brought them 12 of the most beautiful cupcakes I think I've ever seen, I thought OH NO!!!! But, I stopped and asked myself these questions.

1. Do you really want one of those or is it just the sugar calling your name?

A. it was more habit than anything, someone brings in a sweet treat and I feel I have to have it.

2. How are you going to feel after you eat that thing?

A. Like dirt. I am not only going to be physically and mentally ill, but I will also be hating myself for eating the darn thing.

3. Do you really want to lose the sugar free days that you have gained?

A. Heaven's no...I've worked hard to get last month and the beginning of this months sugar free days in, I do not want to have to start over and I AM THE ONE THAT HAS THE LAST WORD ON WHAT GOES INTO MY MOUTH.

And Rosie, I did not eat a cupcake I did have a slice of cheese later, but I was hungry by then.

Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie,
I have not decided about work in Beaver Dam, but my sister made me promise her that for the rest of this year I would not do anything except get my Beaver Dam house the way I want it and take care of myself. If I do take on another job I don't think it will be a full time thing, and not until maybe next Spring. But to be honest I'm leaving it in God's hands, if there is someone that needs my help he will put them in my path. I feel he did that with Roselee and Benny. Weigh in day today, wish me luck.
Love,
Joan

Good morning Rosie,
can you believe it, counting today I have only 4 days left to work, this time next week it will be my last day to work. I will miss the money, I will miss Roselee, but I'm not going to miss the work, I am so ready to begin my new adventure.
Great job without the sugar and I feel stronger each and every day.

Elly, if you stop by hope your day is going well also.

Love

The icon's are for all of us, we have all been working very hard to stay sugar free.

Elly, I am so very happy for you, one month, now add another one. I'm thinking building flower boxes for the windows next Spring. I have a blog that has picture's of the house if you'd like to see what the outside looks like, please do not pass out when you see the inside due to the person that had lived there most recently did not take care of the house.

Rosie, emoticon not eating any other rubbish over the weekend. We can do this, we just have to emoticon .

Joan

emoticon Today is my 1 month anniversary of being sugar free. I feel so good. Recently have been seeing research coming out that refined carbs are worse for our hearts than fat. Of course - we "knew" that! emoticon

Joan are you building window boxes or a house with window boxes? That sounds lovely. Nothing like a window box of flowers to set off a home. emoticon

Just say NO to sugar! Have a good week!

Hi Rosie and Elly, add me to the list of a sugar free Sunday. emoticon Made it back to Louisville safe and sound and even went to a WW meeting yesterday afternoon, I left the story in the other thread.

Rosie, can't you just see window boxes with flowers on the front of the house. emoticon I really hope they get some work done this week, pray for that to happen.

Ladies let's make this a super sugar free day.

Love,
Joan

Sugar Free Sunday for me! Sugar free week ahead.

Life is too sweet to waste it on a sugar addiction.

You made me laugh Elly about the songs, we will have to find a song for you. Well done on the weight loss, I stayed the same this week.

I know you will be having a great time in Beaver Dam Joan just to be with your family must be wonderful, as you know I miss my family sooooooo much.

Have a great weekend both you.

Love Rosie.

Another sugar free day, and feeling great.

Hi Rosie,
hope your weekend will be a good one. Having a great time here in Beaver Dam, and left the story of small town living in my other thread. Stay Strong.

Hi Elly, love it Kentucky Woman and Cracklin' Rosie, Neal Diamond is one of my all time favorites. Great on the weight loss, every little bit helps and it gets us closer to our goals.

Love,
Joan

Joan - great job on the weight loss. I lost half a pound this week which I was glad about
because I didn't do so well last weekend.

Rosie - you are really far along your journey to goal - that is awesome.

You two remind me of Neil Diamond - not just his song Kentucky Woman but the one about Cracklin Rosie. So, just seeing your names pop up on posts makes me happy.

Have wonderful weekend. I have plenty of raw veggies on hand to snack on so I don't eat too many nuts and Triscuits waiting for my husband to get hungry. Monday will be my one month anniversary without sugar. Day by day we can do this.

Elly

Hi Joan and Elly,

I read your other post Joan, you are a supper star. Well done on your weight loss you are doing great.

I know what you mean Elly about telling your self you can't have sugar, it also makes me want to rebel, so I take one day at a time and I try not to think about it to much. I know when I am of sugar my mind doesn't feel so foggy, your doing great Elly staying away from the horrible sugar that makes us feel more horrible.
I agree 'SUGAR IS NOT OUR FRIEND' WE CAN DO THIS.

Hope you both have a great weekend Love Rosie.

Hi Elly and Rosie,
my weigh in went very well, I was down another pound, so I was happy about that. Had a nice drive down, not as much traffic as there was last Friday when I came down. Rosie, I left a story on the other thread of how I made the newspaper's down here this week. Too funny.

Keeping it real ladies, we all know ''SUGAR IS NOT OUR FRIEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Love,
Joan

Thank you Joan and Rosie!

It is great to feel I'm not alone in this. Being a rebel, I don't tell myself I'll never eat sugar because if I do that I'll probably run out and buy some. But I do remind myself what the consequences are of having sugar and that has kept me from going off the deep end. It will be 30 days for me on 9-8 - that I've stayed away from sugar - 30 days since I put the sack of granulated in the garbage! One thing I love is the clarity of mind and the calmness of spirit when I'm not having sugar 8 times a day.

I hope the weigh in went well and you are having fun.

Thanks again for welcoming me! emoticon

Hi Joan,
All the best on your weigh in today, and how exciting it is that you are spending another weekend with you sister and family, you sister must be so excited that it want be long before your there with them again. Have a wonderful time away and drive safe.

Hi Elly, nice to have you here, and like Joan said we have really do know that sugar is our drug and we want to stay well away from it, we have had our ups and downs of trying to give it up as from now I have gone a month without it and I am going to go this month with out it to.

Have a great weekend Joan
Love Rosie.

Elly, welcome and I could have written your post, you sound just like me. I tell everyone, I've never drank, smoked or done drugs, but my drug of choice for many years has been sugar. I know all too well how you feel both mentally and physically. Both Rosie and I have gotten off the sugar and we have both tested the waters and found out, ''no, we are addicted to that stuff, we can't even have a little bit." We can do this.

Hi Sweet Rosie,
today is weigh in day, I'll take what I get, but I think I'll do okay. Going to head down to Ruthann's after my meeting. Hope you have a great weekend. I'll be checking in.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan and Rosie,
I have been appreciating your postings - it took me so long to really believe that sugar was my enemy. Like an alcoholic, I kept telling myself I could stop anytime, or that it would be OK to just have one cookie, one cupcake, etc. Of course, that one lead to many and many days of treats, while I felt increasingly worse mentally and physically and needed more and more sugar to keep going. How many times did I do that routine? Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. emoticon
Thanks,
Elly

Hey Rosie,
your so right anything like that will ruin any and all hard work I"ve put in. Yesterday my friend Karen took me out for lunch yesterday and when the waiter came around and asks us if we wanted dessert, I immediately said, ''no I'll have some decaf coffee." Which Rosie was just teh best. On to another day without the sugar.
Love,
Joan

Hey Rosie, 26 days now, and only days left for me to work. I had a craving yesterday and it was only because I saw this. Benny is a big sweet eater and he's always buying these prepared cakes from his Kroger store, they are not even good, but I saw that chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and chocolate chips....can we say heart burn city......and for whatever reason I so wanted that cake. So I got busy, I grabbed the vacuum cleaner and the swiffer duster and began to do housework until I finally forgot about the cake. I have to admit I was proud of myself. Color me happy and sugar free another day.
Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie, congrats being without sugar for a whole month. I have lost count, but I'm still without sugar, and like you I have plans to remain without the white stuff this month as well. Can you believe it just 27 days until I move. Its an exciting time for me. Lets make this a great sugar free month.

Love,
Joan

Hey Rosie,
I slept like the dead last night. In fact when I woke at one point I had to stop and think, ''where am I?" Now that was a strange feeling. Rosie, I think I know how you feel when you are with your family back in Australia and then you have to leave, I so can't wait until I don't have to go back after being here for two or three days. I am also very excited about getting started on decorating my new little house. Its gonna be lovely. Have a great weekend.
Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie,
just 30 days until I move. Thirty days from today. The lady that came by and looked at the condo a couple of weeks ago is coming by this afternoon with her real estate person to look at it again. This woman has to sell her home before she could purchase this one, so I don't know how that might work out, but the good news is, its not my problem.

Hope your day will be a good one. Today the lady that will be taking over my job for the Katz's is coming in, she did work on Saturday, but I don't think things went so great, so going to give Shirley a refresher course.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I think that when I eat my grapes they taste so nice why do I eat sugar things when these are so good, it shows that sugar really is addictive ones you have one you just keep going back.

Not long for you to move Joan each day you must feel so excited.

Have a great day Love Rosie

Hey Rosie,
my friend Dana came by yesterday and picked up the tomatoes I brought back to her and one of the cantaloupes and I gave her a wedge of one of the watermelons. I had cut some watermelon up and had it in a bowl so we had some of that as well, talk about good. I had to wonder, ''why did I ever think an oreo was so good." Can you believe it only 33 days until my moving day. I sure hope the lady gets moved out this Wednesday as I was told. Hope your day will be a good one.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Sounds like you can't believe everything that Kevin tells you.
Isn't nice to have some lovely fresh fruit since I have been sugar free I seem to eat a lot more fruit, so I am happy about that as I never use to eat fruit.

Yes we can do this we will do this together.

Have a great day Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
made it back to Louisville safe and sound. My friend and her husband came over and they were able to remove the hutch from my desk so I'm so excited that I will be able to take my desk with me. Kevin had told me that the hutch could not be removed.
I brought two watermelons and 3 cantaloupes and a bunch of fresh tomatoes back with me. I'm sharing the melons and tomatoes with Dana.
Good job on drinking the water we can do this Rosie.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Mmmmmmmmmmmyour watermelon sounds lovely I have had a few here but their not very sweet so I have stopped buying them I am still into my grapes and mangoes. Yesterday I just over ate on rubbish not sweets just take away food that has way to much salt in it, needless to say I weighed my self today and I have gone up 2pounds so I am drinking a lot of water today.

Have a safe trip back home,
Love Rosie.

Hey Rosie,
never even thought about kangaroo's jumping out in front of you, and here I worry about the deer. Like you I don't like to drive at night either, if I have to I will but I sure try not to have to.
I'll be heading back to Louisville this morning, I've had such a nice few days with my sister. Oh yesterday we had a watermelon from their garden, it weighed 37 pounds, and was it ever sweet and juicy, and zero points as well.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Those trucks can be scary in Australia they have road trains that go up North and they drive so fast I don't like driving at night as that is when there on the roads, plus you have Kangaroos they are dangerous to as they just jump out in front of the car. Here they have camels that do the same, but here no woman are aloud to drive .
Glad you arrived safe, we are going out later do I have to be strong and stay away from the sweets I know I can do it.

Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie, I made it safely to Ruthann's traffic was a mess, all those big truck on I-65, but with a lot of praying I made it without a problem, which is always good. I left the report of getting in touch with the landlord in the other thread. Hope you have a nice weekend.

Hi Rosie,
I lost a pound this week, so I'm happy about that. Today would have been mine and Bob's wedding anniversary....16 years, I have a twinge of sadness today, but that will pass. Hope your day will be a good one.
Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie,
I'm going down to my sister's Friday after I get off work. I'm pretty sure I can stay sugar free down there, she's good about making healthier foods, and I won't be staying for Sunday dinner so I won't have to worry about Sunday dessert. Today is weigh in and meeting day, keeping fingers crossed.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I am keeping right away from the sugar stuff, I know I can't have it in the house, I feel so good that I am sticking to this, I know its been just over 20 days SF and I am happy.

Have a great day Joan.
Love Rosie.

I too will call you Rosie, I love that name. I also love the story of it being your nickname. What a precious way of remembering your Dad.
Hope your day will be a good one, lets keep away from the sugar stuff.

Hi Joan,
Oh I had to laugh at myself for writing Gale, yes that is my name my nickname is Rosie, that is what my Dad always called me and my Uncles, he really wanted my name to be Rosie when I was born, but my Mum didn't like that name. Now that my Dad and my Uncles are all gone nobody calls me that now, but I will keep it as my nickname and my email name that way I can remember my Dad more.

Hope you had a wonderful day, Love Rosie.

So your name is Gale???? Love it. emoticon emoticon job on getting those steps in. When I had my pedometer I would check it to make sure I was getting in my 10,000 steps.
What a cute story about your Granddaughters cat. Sam only follows me when he wants to be fed, same with Ms. Roselee's cat Beauty, she comes to me when she wants food. lol lol.
Hope you have a wonderful day.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I am sure the cat will miss you to. Before I left Australia my 20 year old grand-daughter was living with me and when she came to live with us she brought her cat, now when I get emails from her she tells me how much her cat misses me, as he use to follow me every where.

I have been busy today doing things, I have got back into exercising I already have my 10,000 steps in for the day I will try and get at least 10,000 or more steps 6 days a week.

Hope you had a good day sounds like it was a busy one. Love Gale.

Great job Rosie, lets stay away from that sugar, we know its our enemy. I worked yesterday, it rained off and on all day, then when I got home I went over and visited one of the neighbor's then went over and fed Sam the cat. Sam belongs to Lynda one of the step daughter-in-laws, everyone keeps saying to me, ''what will she do when you move away." I told them, she will have to pay someone to drive over and feed the cat. lol lol.

Have a wonderful day.
Hugs,
Joan

I would have to pay 77.75 to use the pool, and I"m not willing to pay that much money, I need it for other things. I think I'll be fine, even though the pool did help a lot. We do have a pool here in our complex but I don't want to use that one. Its raining here this morning so that means Ms. Roselee will be lazy today. :)
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Good on you staying away from those buns, I know what you mean about the cinnabons, they sell them here in every Mall, we don't have them in Australia but there every where here and I of cause love them, I had my first cinnabon in San Diago (I think I spelt it wrong) mind you the ones in America are so much more bigger there then here.

It is a shame you can't use the gym pool are you able to just pay to go in their pool I know in Australia you can pay daily for the use of the pool.

I know you have a busy weekend working but I hope you have a great time.
Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
I had a challenge yesterday. I had to go to the mall, which I'm not fond of due to I'm not a shopper, but I needed to pick up a gift for someone. Well the store I needed was at the other end of the mall, and the closer I got to it, the smell......Cinna Bons......Oh my, I thought I might pass out it smelled so good. Rosie, I could not go any further I did not trust myself, so I turned went back to my van and drove around to the other side of the mall where the store I needed was, went in got my purchase and back out....I resisted the cinnamon buns place. That was close. Have a great weekend.
Love,
Joan
