What is the MOST amazing thing your body has ever done.

Healed from breast and lung cancer.

No - don't take April 1st seriously at all. Honestly, I find it half irritating when someone says/does something goofy and then announces "April Fools!"

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

I haven't started spring cleaning yet. I will wait until taxes are done and then I will put away tax stuff, printers and computers after the info is wiped from the computers.

I will then start with the kitchen, living room and then my bedroom. After that, the spare bedroom. That is the room that collects everything!! Hope to clean all windows since this winter left a lot of cleaning to do outside. Almost all of the snow is gone. The temps got up to 67 today. That is a heat wave for us. emoticon

Anyone started doing some SPRING cleaning?

What is on your "to do" list for cleaning up?

I don't do spring cleaning as I have the grandsons visiting regularly. So it means doing a detailed cleanup before they get here because Angus is allergic to dogs so I need to de-dog the house as much as possible

Yes! I’ve started my Spring Cleaning, my to do lists consists of Organizing the kitchen drawers. Down sizing in every room, especially the storage shed in the backyard, haven’t been in there in years sooo with that said I must ask myself how important are things in there that I’m “Saving”.
I see a lot of work ahead of me, but at least I have a plan & direction of where I will start & what room is next.

I'm Not Where I Need to Be...BUT...Thank God I'm NOT Where I Used to Be!

I haven't started yet, but my main job will be in the bedroom, sorting boxes of papers and photos, and organizing my desk drawers.
Today I plan to shred a lot of papers I have already accumulated.

It finally seems like a spring day - it is sunny and temps will be in the 40s! I can't go anywhere though because I don't have my new driving glasses yet, and I am waiting for my meds to be delivered.

Hugs, Leslie emoticon

What is one of the FAD diets you might of tried?

I have tried many, but don't remember all that they were named. They didn't work so I didn't remember the names of the diets. Portion control and exercise are the only things that worked for me.

What is one of the FAD diets you might of tried?

I think I have tried every fad diet known to man at one time or another....and of course none of them worked. I do have to admit that the Adkins diet got me on the road to losing my weight, but I couldn't keep it up more than a couple of months.

What is the most important question you've ever asked yourself?

I have asked myself so many tough questions through the years and have given myself the wrong answer many, many times. The hardest by far was "After 53 years living in the same place and 30 years at the same job, will I move away from everything familiar and start over again". As you all know the answer to that one was yes...and it was one of the best decisions I ever made.

Sharyn, I know how hard that must have been for you. We love our children, but once they are grown, we really have no control over them...only how we allow them to affect us. Sometimes we just have to go and let God take care of it. emoticon

Janice, we are so happy you chose to get that little place looked at. emoticon

I've done the cabbage soup diet - lasted a few days,
The worst thing I did was when I worked as a nurse at a Weight Loss Clinic, I put myself on the diet to lose about 10 lbs. I lost the weight, but ended up in Cardiac Care because my potassium was too low. The diet was 500 calories/day, and worked all right for those with a lot more weight to lose, but I should NOT have been on it! emoticon

I have tried the 3 day diet.
Also South Beach, but I really don't think of it as a fad.

Janice, that is awful. Good for you for following up.

Sharyn, it was a brave thing you have done. My heart hurts for you, but you have done what you feel is the best for both you and your son.

emoticon Sharyn, Sheryl & Caz!!! emoticon Answers!!!!!!

The one most important question I've asked myself...........

Should I go have this weird looking white blister on the bottom of my tongue checked out??

The answer was YES.....and it was biopsy and found to be a very dangerous cancer that grows!

Next question was..........Do I really want to go through chemo/radiation for 17 weeks........EASY answer..YES..........Now I'm just doing CT Scans 2 times a year.

What is the most important question you've ever asked yourself?

Do I want to move from a place I'd known for over 30 years.
In the end it was a no-brainer.I weighed up the pros and cons and am now happier than I've ever been.
Who could be unhappy with a beach 5 minutes away, friends close by, a beautiful home, a fantastic DH and amazing neighbours??????

Wow what a difficult question. There are so many to single out one...do I really want to get married, have kids the answer was yes.
Right now my question is what can I do to make myself a better person. I am not a bad person you understand, but not to have a thing to work towards will make a person stagnate.

This is quite a hard question as there have been so many that I have asked myself but I guess the biggest & most life changing question I ever asked was.....

"do I love myself enough to hand out some tough love to my younger son " In the end it was yes & he hasn't spoken to me since. That was at the end of 2004 but I have felt safer since.

Our Slow Food Chapter is hosting an St Patrick's Day dinner with the US Culinary Ambassador to Ireland. She tells us that Corned Beef is a substitute for a bacon joint, the traditional Irish main dish. Corned Beef was used as a substitute in America by the immigrants as they couldn't afford the joint. We are having the joint with cabbage, mashed potatoes with Irish butter, an apple dish with cream from the cow.

St Patricks Day hasn't been a big thing here in the past. I don't celebrate it so won't be doing anything special. Can't even remember when is and need to look it up each year.

Corned beef and cabbage used to be one of fave meals but had no idea it was an iris meal.
