It's been a while since I have made any major post in any of my teams. So I think I might as well sit down and try to catch up at once. Not that there is a lot to catch up on but you never know. Someone out there just might be sitting behind their computer asking what became of Joanna.

I've been sick really sick...with Allergies and a bad sinus cold. It settled in my lungs and turned into ammonia. I am on the upside of recovery now but it took almost a month to get me here. As most of you know I live in the country on a horse farm in Michigan. Just one week into September I can see the trees and landscape change colors. Beautiful gold and red is blossoming right in front of my eyes. The nights are getting cooler and some of my flowers are giving way already. I have one more of HAY to cut in order to have enough to feed all the horses over the winter. However if the sunshine doesn't stay warm enough to dry out the crop once it's cut I could lose the whole thing and be forced to go out and buy hay. I need sunshine and strong wind to help with the fields. I am keeping my fingers crossed. We already lost 1/2 of the second cutting because of the rain. I am so afraid that Winter is coming to early and it's planning on being a hard one.

On a good note walking or riding the trails are beautiful right now. I use a golf cart to run my dogs along the paths of our property and oh my how lovely the colors are looking. After spending two years and over 50,000.00 we can say we no longer have any wire fencing lest on the farm. We are the proud owners of brand new split rail hard wood fencing around all the pastures, arena and grounds. Whoopee!

Show season is over for us...for the year anyway. I am cleaning everything up and putting it in storage for next year. We plan to really go out next year...will be my last year with the girls together so we are going to really do some traveling with the horses. After that I leave it in the hands of he girls...for the traveling part. I will stick to watching the local shows and maybe the nationals if they qualify.

If's official my sister moved in with me...for the final time. If she leaves again that's it for my efforts. Right now it's nice having her. I made sure she went to see the doctor and is now on antidepressants for her bi-polar. She helps me out so much inside the house. She keeps it clean for me...and does all the laundry so just that makes her a treasure. We are a big house here and it takes a lot of work to stay on top of it.

I have a busy September, 4 family birthdays that I have to attend. My oldest grandson is getting married on the 27th, one of my granddaughters just bought her first home and is having a house warming party the week before. Living where I live means a lot of driving to get to all the different venues, but being a good parent and grandparent I will make sure I am there rain or shine.

Sounds awesome, though!

We went out to some trails in Pinckney this weekend, to break in my husband's new hiking boots. Within 5 minutes, the sole fell off one of mine, but I've had my boots for about 20 or so years now. Still. We ended up driving up to Howell and the Merrell outlet to get me new ones for our trip next week. I'm going to MA this weekend for my niece's baptism, so we didn't have any other time.

I know what you mean about mosquitoes...I live in the country on a lake and they are just everywhere this year. I am dealing with it though. I just got back from going to DC...did so much walking there I think my legs were about ready to give out.

We are taking a cruise and then spending a week, doing a self-guided land tour.

After this winter, though, nothing is cold! The average temperature during the day is 65, which I find quite pleasant. Given the fact that the mosquitoes are as big as birds, I'm okay with being covered up all day. Ha ha.

Sara sounds like fun....I also have one coming up but a short one just 5 days. We are driving from Michigan to Virginia and making stops along the way to visit new places we have not seen before. DC being one of them I will be seeing the White House for the first time up close and personal. How about you where do you plan to vacation at?

I have been missing all the good stuff going on around here. I was so busy with the horseshow this past week I just could not keep up with SPARK. I was on a couple of times but only to check in not check out things. I will be taking some time to catch up on conversations and what not.

It's raining here has been for two days I hope everyone is enjoying the weather where they are. As much as we are not able to enjoy the rain it is appreciated and need for the crops.

I tried today to stick to my guns and keep on track...beginning with a piece of toast and yogurt for breakfast, for lunch just a bowl of chicken vegetable soup...no bread or beverage other than water. However on dinner is where I ate the most of my calories. I took some blankets to the laundry mat to wash them because they were too big for my machine. While out we stopped at a little Mexican restaurant on MSU campus. I ordered a combo...taco...2 enchiladas, a tamale with rice and beans. I only ate 1/2 of everything...the taco....1 enchiladas and half the rice and beans...no tamale (I don't like them anyway). I think I did pretty well over all for my first day back to the buckboard. I also put in almost 2 hours of heavy cleaning today..mopping floors, changing beds, doing windows, and cleaning one of three bathrooms.

Did I mention before that I cut all my hair off...never in my life had it this short...and of all things I died it RED....I am a blonde (no the dumb blond type) but blonde with a lot of gray running through it right now. So with blonde hair your gray is not a pretty gray its a mousy gray at that...which I hate. So I have always colored the gray...that old saying wash the gray away..was me. But, this time around I decided to go all the way and do something really strange...I did it bright red or auburn red I guess you can say. I sent a shocker to everyone here at home.

Good Morning Everyone, Hope to introduce myself. I am Joanna....living in the Ann Arbor Area. I love on a horse farm in the country side and enjoy country living but when I want to get to the city and enjoy the excitement of an entertaining, friendly atmosphere I come to Ann Arbor. I enjoy the downtown area with all the little cafes and places to sit and watch the crowds go by.

I am older with my family grown I have managed to pack on a few extra pounds that I really need to get rid of and get back into a healthy life style. I am open for suggestions and will be here to offer any motivational help I can along your journey to a better life style.

I am looking to kick the meds I have to take for high blood pressure and cholesterol too.

Hi, all,

HYATTI1 graciously offered to be one of the team leaders so I added her and removed myself. I'm sure she'll add a lot to the group.

Thanks for the warm wishes, SARBAH77. I'm not quite done yet, but I will be soon enough. Hope that you feel better soon!

Hi Rosie - Well, I'm still around, I just don't have a lot to say these days! Congrats on finishing your PhD!

Everyone else - whew, I've been battling a virus-turned-infection for over a week now. It's totally wiped me out. I missed most of a week of work and haven't even had energy to eat. We got the results of the blood work today, so we know now it's an infection and I can start a course of antibiotics and hopefully feel better ASAP!

Hi, all,

I've mentioned this about a year ago, but I haven't been able to give time to this team since the birth of now daughter. I am now wrapping up my PhD this summer and will be moving out of state to start a new job. If there are people who want to get this team more active, please let me know and I'd be happy to add new leaders.

Rosie

Funny thing is I would have expected more from the team but it seems that not much is going on here so I do not come as I should and there is no one to build a support team with or for.

Sad ..you Michigan People.

I hope you are enjoying your family time. Bum knees are a pain in the butt...strange that they make their way around the body like they do. :) I have been able to get out and about did some walking yesterday and a bit of food shopping. I try to split my shopping up into multiple stores just so I get in more walking. We are getting some melting well sort of....making it a mud trap. Living in the country has it's ups and downs. I am over in Fowlerville...just east of Lansing and west of Brighton. We have some acres and raise horses. A ton of hard work but the benefits are wonderful. I am out today to get some running around out of the way. I hope you have a great day...but it does say Winter is not over yet for us.

Hi Joanna!

Well, my parents have been in town this weekend. They live in MA, so it's not that warm for them, either, but it's not as cold as we've had it. Today was pretty cold, so my mom made a triple batch of beef stew for our freezer. Maybe the weather will turn before we can eat it all?

I'm sorry to hear about your leg - I've been dealing with a bum knee, but it sounds a lot easier than what you're dealing with!

Let's see...how did you like this last bit of snow. We got between 10 and 12 inches where I am at....the Hubby is still out there plowing the grounds. I live in the country on a horse farm so with the snow we get the drifts. I am so over winter...I want warm weather. My son told me the farmers almanac says we are getting an extremely hot and dry summer. I am not looking forward to that either since I have horses and need the rain for the hay.

I just started a new eating routine that my doctor signed me up with a nutritionist to help me with eating disorders. I am hoping to loose the 75 lbs. I put on while laid up with a shattered leg after an auto accident. I so want to get back on my horses and ride.

I don't about you all , but the holiday food exposure and trips has me hard at balancing out all those extra carbs. I left my food journal behind when I should not of. I thought routine eating same stuff and amounts would get hard wire in by now. So when offered food that I normally don't eat it is impossible to keep accurate on my intake. To be honest I got lazy.
So any way I am in the process of picking up and keeping a food and activity journal on paper to keep me on my new life style. Winter has me doing indoor workouts and some power walks outdoors. Have a great day

Let's just say that... perhaps at some point, I tested your theory and maybe it's not 10 pounds worth but it does make a big difference. I laughed.

So good luck with your efforts to quit smoking. And remember to follow your PT's instructions! :)

That's why i am not going to worry about the weight so much. Hubby still smokes so it is always a temptation. The longest I have lasted is 1 1/2 year. It has really opened my eyes about how it affects others so even when I smoke I do it outside so it won't bother people. Scale is bad today but i think thats because of back problems. Dr asked me if I was having problems with BM but I didn't relate it to back but now realize I am having problems going even with stool softners. That can make scale go up 10lbs. At least that's what Im telling myself ( lol) Have a good day and I will think of you at PT

ooh! Good luck with that; that's got to be one of the hardest things you can ever do!

Good luck with PT. I really loved my physical therapists, between the knee surgery and stress fracture, but now I'm down to seeing a personal trainer again. My right leg is still very weak but I'll get there! Hopefully, it'll help me shed 5-10 more pounds, too. :)

Today was pretty miserable weather. It's been a long time since we've had an all day soaking rain like that!

Worry about your health first! Right now I'm not doing too well on the diet as I just quit smoking (again) Has been a month now and I have only put on a few lbs so thats good. Normally I pack on about 10 the first week. Also having a problem with my back so not much exercise going on but start PT tomorrow so hopefully will get some relief. Right now if I even walk it makes my whole leg swell up. Pinched the Siatica and can barely stand on my right leg. Anyway take care of that knee.

It really is! I'm certainly no help; would you like to join in moderator duties?

I'm considering walking the Dexter Ann Arbor 5k again this year. I'm not sure I'll be allowed to, what with my major knee surgery then the stress fracture, since we're still trying to fix me just right!

Wow, it's been 2 months since anyone posted here? Yikes!

Well, I had MAJOR knee surgery on 10/13. I got home from the hospital on the 14th and, until I go in to MedSport on the 26th, my instructions are "do nothing." I'm sure you can imagine the unfun of this. Luckily, my mom has been around to cook and clean and stuff!!

Leigh, did you go to the deli or Zingerman's Roadhouse? The latter is further from downtown but it's got some really awesome food.

Stuccis is our local ice cream shop - the ice cream is made locally, too! Kilwins is a tasty chocolate shop, also Michigan-based.

Our city and county parks are nice to visit and pretty inexpensive, too!

Well, we like to try new things. Last year we were in Ann Arbor and we tried Zingermans! It was delicious!! We just want to know if there is anything that we should see while we are there. Ill definitely want to take a look at the museums!Thanks

Kay, I was on vacation! Home now, glad to be here.

leigh! Tell us more about your interests!

For example, campus has a great art museum and a fun natural history museum. The main drag through downtown is nothing but restaurants. Tell us what you like (steak? italian? vegetarian? breweries?) and we can help point you in the right direction!

Hello everyone!!
My boyfriend and I are taking a trip to the wonderful Ann Arbor next month... Any places that you would recommend for us to visit, see, eat?? We want to get more familiar with the area before we make Ann Arbor our home =)

I've had some posts, not much response, so thanks for the suggestion. I like the group I joined, the 40+ group, really active and supportive. Good luck in your group!

What's up with this team? I thought Ann Arbor was full of health nuts. Are we the only ones who are over weight? LOL

Yes, it was supposed to be a record high in the 60's today. Very strange.

Sure did! Found our whole driveway today! What crazy weather, on top of yesterday's freezing rain/ice covered roads.

I aggrevated the tendonitis in both shoulders and put my lower back into spasms when shoveling. Maybe some year my DH and I will remember to buy a snowblower, early.

I stayed in this weekend. Finally a plow came down our street at about 2pm. Abour 48 hours earlier than that big storm we had last December. Anyway, good news since we usually have to turn left on to a busy road and doing it through 9" of snow is kind of... difficult!

Enjoying the snow. Wish I could get out there and help shovel. It's great exercise and afterward you don't need to worry about going to the gym for the day.

I had some minor surgery on Friday. Man, the family surgical waiting area is nicer than it was in 2005... the last time I had surgery. Tired of surgery.

Also, what's with the snow?!

I get my grandson tonight. He is either cutting teeth or has a chest cold. It's hard to tell because he gets the same symptoms for both. I sure hope he is feeling better tonight.

I had my granddaughter over last night while her parents went to a scary movie. I think they fed her too much candy during the day though because she cried the whole time she was here. She is usually happy to stay with me.
