We got some rain today so I don't have to water. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Had to work the office myself today. One assistant is on vacation and the other one could not find a sitter. Whew, was a day but I made it through it.

Then this evening I got my hair colored and trimmed. Got the lower part darker. Kind of fun to do something different. emoticon

Going to total my weekly points and call it a night.

Bill Gates decided to hold a contest for the lawyers. Whoever wins gets to handle all of Microsoft's business. The day of the event, the Gates' estate is swamped with lawyers, all eager for the nod from the richest man in the world.

"Gentlemen," Gates starts, "please follow me." He leads them to an enormous swimming pool filled with piranha. Then he snaps his fingers. With that, a servant opens the door. A cow rushes out and stumbles into the pool. In no time at all, the cow is nothing but bones.

Gates says, "Any man who can swim the length of that pool shall represent me in all my business and personal dealings."

Instantly, a lawyer named Carl pitches into the water. Furiously he swims across the pool, hauls himself out and stands there panting."

"Bravo!" shouts Gates. "You have proven to me how much you want my business."

"Actually, I want just one thing." Carl gasps.

"What's that?"

"The name of the bastard that pushed me in."

Hi Everyone,

We are still experiencing this on again...off again rain pattern. I did get outside today for some gardening during one of the sun breaks. Jag came out with me a barked at the people going by.

I didn't do very well eating my freggies or drinking water this past weekend. MIL and FIL eat a lot of processed food and not much produce. Glad to be home with my own refrigerator.

Ercie...Congratulations on your weight loss... emoticon

Sheila...I hope you are back up to speed.

Karenmarie...I hope you have a great day.

Michele...I hope you have a great day too.

Son: I can't go to school today.Father: Why not?Son: I don't feel so wellFather: Where does it hurt?Son: In school.

A young blonde woman is distraught because she fears her husband is having an affair, so she goes to a gun shop and buys a handgun. The next day she comes home to find her husband in bed with a beautiful redhead. She grabs the gun and holds it to her own head. The husband jumps out of bed, begging and pleading with her not to shoot herself. Hysterically the blonde responds to the husband, "Shut up...you're next!"

3 women are waiting to be executed one is a brunette, one is a red head and one is a blonde
The brunette is called up and the executer says do you have any last words and she says no. The exucter then continues and says ready aim and the brunette shouts earthquake everyone is startled and jumps to the floor while the brunette escapes.
Then the red head is called up and once again the exucter shouts any last words and once again the red head replies no. So the executer shouts ready aim and the red head shouts tornado everyone is scared and starts running around while the red head escapes
By now the blonde understands what she has to do so when she gets called up and the executer asks her if she has any last words she says no. Then once again the executer shouts ready aim and the brunette shouts FIRE!

I hope that you all enjoyed your Memorial Day. I got the grass out of the raspberries bushes and then our son and his family took us with them to Fort Collins, just to get out of town. It is so wonderful to see trees with leaves and the green grass. We usually see antelope but today we also saw a deer. So pretty.

We stopped and walked off lunch at a nursery there. Lots of pretty flowers, just no room for much more. We sure did enjoy the day.

Good morning!

emoticon Happy Memorial Day! emoticon

Sheila, thanks for those 'words of wisdom' about Amber. Glen wants me to enroll her in Sylvan when summer school lets out. They have a Summer Camp but emoticon it's $$$$! Do you have any experience/info about them, by any chance? Sorry to hear about your emergency! Glad you're feeling better! I have a mild allergy to bees, nothing that requires an epi, tho. emoticon about the FitBit! Isn't that irritating?! But if you hadn't have ordered another you wouldn't have found the original one--isn't that always the way?! emoticon

Ercie, I worked in my little veggie garden and my container veggie garden yesterday, too. And I pulled weeds in my flowers. I have GOT to emoticon today! I'm going to the cemetery this morning then I'll mow.

I ordered flowers to be sent to my grandparents graves in NH. I ordered those a couple days ago. I do that every year. And I visit my hubands' family graves here. Both his parents and 4 of his brothers & sisters are dead. It's just he & his sister left and he can't stand her-he toerates her but can't stand her. She lives in the next town. Funny thing is, I didn't like her from the first day I met her. Little bells went off in my head--'don't trust her, don't trust her'. And, boy, have those bells proven to be right over the years!

On the rare occasions we go out to eat I order just the plain salad with dressing on the side. I'm vegetarian and some restaurants just don't have good options for me, and I don't much care for pasta. I'm good for a couple forkfuls but that's it.

Karen, loves those jokes! emoticon Keep 'em coming!

Have a good day, all!

Sheila glad you are doing better after you sting. Well I got a good diet lesson today. Did real good all day till we went to Perkins for supper and I ordered the Strawberry Grilled Chicken salad and 900 calories later. Ouch. Well that put me over my limit by 350 calories. So I guess salads are not always the wisest choices.

Michele ~ Those tests helped me make the decision to retire from teaching. I never felt that they told the true story of an individual student - just how well they memorized and how comfortable they were taking tests. Some of my brightest and best students were NOT test takers.
I’ve taught many students who didn’t understand the importance schooling had in their later lives. I wish I could give you a “magic bullet” of advice to help Amber but I can’t. Every student is different. I will tell you that most make the connection eventually so never give up on expecting her best from her.
The weather has made a drastic change here. We’ve been in the 50s and 60s with frost over night. It’s supposed to start warming up again tomorrow and be in the 80s by mid-week.

Erie ~ Peaches gets her beauty treatment on Wednesday! Why do we take better care of their “haircuts” than our own?!

Blue ~ Peaches and I walked in the dogpark yesterday. It’s large and I get in a mile with 4 loops around the inside perimeter. There were lots of dogs there so Peaches got in some good play time.

Sorry I haven’t been around for a few days. I was working outside and got stung. My epi-pen didn’t quite handle it so I ended up at the ER. One shot and a few hours in a very uncomfortable, hard bed and I was released (with a new and stronger epi prescription!). My foot/ankle are still swollen and sore but I’m not feeling as wiped out now. I did take mom to the cemetaries and put flowers out yesterday. It’s always hard to visit my dad’s grave, even after 25 years. It wore mom out although I did take a lawn chair and she sat as I cleaned the stones and did a little trimming close around them. She called a little while ago and is taking it easy now. I plan to go over in a few hours and plant some morning glory seeds for her.
I’m not doing anything special this weekend. Just want to get some things sorted and put away and then work outside some more. It’s been cold here but tomorrow is supposed to be better. I don’t like working outside on week-ends - too many people around and I just feel uncomfortable if anyone sees me getting up or down or crawling along the edge of the flower bed (I know it’s silly; no one pays attention to me).
I wanted to check my Fitbit minutes after I got home on Thursday - and it wasn’t in my pocket! I usually clip it on but was in a hurry that morning. I’d been all over - mom’s, the park, the store... so I just figured it was gone. I went to Amazon and ordered a new one ($99.95) and got a notice yesterday morning that it has been shipped. Guess what I found in mom’s driveway yesterday - yep! My Fitbit! Now, I have two! Oh, well - knowing me, I’ll lose one again. I really am thinking about ordering the FitBit Flex which is a narrow wristband. I don’t think I could lose that one, at least not easily. I don’t have a lot of exercise minutes so far this week - the bee sting put a stop to that for a few days.

I worked in the garden for a couples of hours and got all the grass pulled out of the flower beds, at least for awhile. Bought my tomatoe plants, cucumber plants and some flowers. So in the moring I will get them planted.

It was a warm emoticon day. I hope all of you are having a good weekend. I missed staying withing my calorie limit by 30 calories. Now this is good of me on a weekend.

Did you all give yourself a 5 minute pep talk today. I think it is important to remind ourselfs that we are good people, caring and supportive. I sure appreciate all you support emoticon s

Hi Everyone,

Another rainy day...and a soggy walk.

Today I took DD to the Department of Licencing to get her learner's permit. Stressful afternoon driving home...

Ercie...the stir-fried veggies sounds good. Ginger can be spicy if you have too much.

Michele...I have trouble with my son and homework. I think the future is just too abstract to see the value of education.

Sheila...We have dollar stores too.

Busy day. I took Poppie to the groomer and she looks so pretty. Tonight I fixed stir fry veggies with hot chili garlic sauce. I added some ginger and got carried away. So next time I will leave the ginger out.

Well it is about emoticon time. Have a good Friday everyone.

Sheila, what a coincidence! I do the same thing with my husbands' family graves. His mom, dad(who I never met) and his sister & brother(both of whom I never met) and his BIL. I got it from my grandmother She used to do it every year, too, for her family. Unfortunately, here you can't put things on the grass. But when we got his mom's grave we put a stone bench on the slab, and it's next to his dad's so we put stuff on that. His sister & BIL have a slab that connects. That's a good idea for your mom-she'll appreciate that, I'm sure.

Blue, I bet Jag loved his walk!

It's 91 degrees and humid as can be! emoticon It's cloudy and we're expecting rain tomorrow!

Amber has a birthday coming next month and I was going to have a pool put in. Not an in-ground but I was going to hire a pool company to come out and level the ground and get it set up. Tuesday I get a thing in the mail from her school, a preliminary on her grades. Come to find out she's missing several pieces of homework. When I talked to her teachers she's missing 2 from Science, 3 in Math and 4 in social studies. Of course, I had to Glen. I keep him up to date on her. He was RIPPED. When I talked to Amber about it her response was 'I don't care. I don't like school & I don't care about school.' Her theory is that the only thing that matters is how she does on the STAAR test not her grades in class. In a way, she's right. The STAAR does does determine whether or not she'll graduate. I was surprised that she understood that. Many parents, and I'm one of them, wonder what the purpose is for report cards. But I also know that the report cards tell me how she will likely do on the STAAR test. And, from Amber's report cards, not well. She passed the reading/writing tests. We're STILL waiting to hear about the Science test. And she had to re-take the Math test-still waiting on the results of that. I f she doesn't pass she has to go to summer school for another chance at taking it. If she fails it again she repeats 5th grade. She failed it in 3rd grade and had to repeat. I don't even want to think she'll be held back for a 2nd time.

Anyway, because of her attitude Glen said to forget about the pool. THAT made me mad becuz I wanted a pool emoticon . But, I understood it--her attitude really ticked him off. But she's NEVER liked school and it's ALWAYS been a fight to get her to do her homework. But this year has been really bad, for some reason.

Oh, well...
This morning I did lots of walking. I got in 11,452 steps already. And I still have to go get her from school and I want to hit the Farmer's Market, too. It doesn't start til 3.

Hope everyone has a good day!

Ercie ~ it’s only 71 out now and feels fantastic. We’ve been in the high 80s for about a week; sunshine and no rain. It still hasn’t rained but a cold front is moving through and the high is only supposed to be 58 tomorrow and then in the 60s and mid-70s for the next week. I like those temps much more than yesterday’s!
I used to get my nails done twice a month when I worked. Now I don’t bother, especially with doing so much yard work in the summer.

Michele ~ Memorial Day surprised me, too. I need to get some flowers for the graves. My mom and dad always did and I continue to do so with my mom. It wears me out because I always trim around them and clean off the stones. We visit 3 cemetaries and put flowers on 14 graves (all parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles). It’s really important to my mom to do this so that’s what we do. It will be hard on her this year due to her walking problems. I think I’ll put a folding chair in the car and set it up for her while I work.

Blue ~ Peaches refuses to walk in the rain, even when it’s just sprinkling! I like it as long as there’s no lightning or thunder. It’s been too hot here to take her out for any long walks. We do about a mile and then head home.

Finally - a cloudy day with the sun just peeking through the clouds! I can remember complaining about cold weather about a month ago BUT I’m happy to see cooler weather returning for a few days.
I’m headed to Dollar Tree (Do you guys have those stores? Everything is one dollar.) to buy some artificial flowers for mom to put on family graves. I’ve finally convinced her that she was spending way too much money and these look just as pretty as the expensive ones. I also need to stop and get some skim milk and berries - I can’t make my morning smoothie!
It’s hard to believe that we’ve started the last week of our May Challenge.
Back later,
Sheila

Karen, I LOVED those jokes! I need to email those to my hubby.

Gosh, I missed so much!
I'm heading off to bed but I'll definitely get caught up tomorrow!

BTW, I thought Memorial Day was NEXT week! emoticon This month is getting away from me, for sure!

You can send some of that warm weather this direction. Today was nice but cool yet. What is everyone doing for Memorial Day. We haven't made any plans yet. Maybe we can get together with the kids for a BBQ.

Got my nails done after work. Must be a girly thing, but it makes me feel better. I hope you all have a great Thursday!

Don't forget to get your points done as this is the last day of week 3's challenge. We do need to add tonight's sleep points.
Sheila

Hi, Karenmarie ~ How are you handling this hot weather we've had the past few days? It seems more humid today and I do hope we get the rain tonight. We really need it. I'm hoping I can get some major yard work done the rest of the week. I think the temperature drop into the 50s and 60s will help!
I really liked the following two on your list of jokes today: "Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience" and " Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak." I can apply them to several people I know!

Back again! It's going on 3 p.m. and I've only been home a little while. Mari (SPHAPPYHIKER) got great news at the specialist in Cleveland when I went with her today. He checked out all her scans and did an examination and says that the hole in the bone above her eye is regularly shaped and appears to be a natural formation. He does not see any traces of a tumor or anything that could be "eating into the bone." He actually said that the original doctor did not diagnosis her correctly and used incorrect terminology when speaking with her. I can't remember the exact original diagnosis, "something lesion," which is almost always cancerous, but this ENT specialist/surgeon sees no signs of that. He assured her that he feels she's fine. He does want to see her in 3 months - just to make sure there are no changes and he doesn't need to do further examinations. What a relief!
Neither of us had eaten breakfast so we stopped a picked up a chicken bowl at Chipotle's (chicken, lettuce, cilantro, black beans, corn, green peppers, onions, and sour cream (small amount) and took it to a nearby park. We sat at a table in the shade and ate - then walked about 2.5 miles on the park trail.
What a great day so far.

Blue ~ I wish we’d get some rain here. They keep putting it in the forecast but it hasn’t appeared yet. Maybe tomorrow - rain, not storms, I hope.

Ercie ~ I have the Spark Solution but haven’t even opened it yet. I guess I should see what it says, shouldn’t I?

Okay - It is Wednesday but I still haven’t gone to bed! I’m waiting for a load of clothes to dry and it shouldn’t be much longer. I thought I’d better stop in now because I’m not sure how my day will go tomorrow. I’m taking a close friend and fellow Sparker to Cleveland for some medical appointments. She has a growth over her eye that is eating into the bone. I’m worried about the results because her primary care doctor was not encouraging.
I worked outside again today and did finish the long flower bed that runs alongside the house. Lot’s more to do, but I probably won’t get to any tomorrow. I plan on putting some time in on it Thursday morning and again on Friday. I did decide to fill a “blank” spot at the front of the house with azelas - now to decide what color.
Talk to you all tomorrow evening.

Hi Everyone,

Today's weather was wonky...changing from sun to pouring rain to sun again. Jag and I started our walk with sunny skies and 5 minutes into the walk the rain poured down. We were quite wet when we got home.

My family belongs to a CSA (community supported agriculture) and they had NW strawberries. They were tasty.

Sheila...My thoughts were also with those affected by the tornado. That thing was huge.

Jokes are so good. Had a good day at work and now I am enjoying my evening. I have been doing the Spark Solution and after the first week I am still at the same weight. I think it is stuck on with super glue. emoticon

Well I just got to keep pushing and it is getting easier to stay within my limit.

God must love stupid people. He made SO many.
Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.
Good girls are bad girls that never get caught
Behind every successful man is his woman. Behind the fall of a successful man is usually another woman.
Some people say "If you can't beat them, join them". I say "If you can't beat them, beat them", because they will be expecting you to join them, so you will have the element of surprise.


Why do Americans choose from just two people to run for president and 50 for Miss America?
Crowded elevators smell different to midgets.

You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.
The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!
A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.
The main reason Santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live.
Laugh at your problems, everybody else does.

Blue ~ We both had good days yesterday - maybe it's from being outside and working in our gardens.

I had planned to get up earlier than usual and et a good start on my outside work. Instead, I turned the alarm off and went back to sleep - until 10:30! I had gone to bed around midnight but made the mistake of turning on the TV. I watched the weather channel/tornado coverage until around 3. My heart goes out to all those who live in the affected areas and they are in my prayers.
I'm going to do some more yardwork today before the rain comes this afternoon (hope it does). I plan to wash clothes this evening and try to keep on the laundry. I tend to let it just pile up until I'm out of clothes. Heck, who am I kidding - I've gone to the store to buy underwear because I don't want to wash! Anyway, it's hot (87) and humid here so I'm not sure how long I'll stay outside.
Stay positive today!

Hi Everyone,

I went out and did some gardening today also. I just wish the weeds wouldn't grow so fast. The weather here in the PNW has been unseasonably warm and sunny. All my plants are happy but so are the weeds.

I had an nice walk with Jag today and 7 servings of freggies.

Just came in from another 90 minutes weeding flower beds! I'm exhausted and VERY dirty. Time for a shower and then I'm going to watch Defiance and Revolution, two of my favorite shows on TV.
I hope you all had a good day.

Karenmarie ~ Thanks for sharing the jokes. Laughter is definitely a positive activity!

Just came in from working in my flower beds. I spent 3 hours and haven’t even finished weeding the first one! It’s the biggest so I’ll feel a true sense of accomplishment when it’s done. Then - only 7 more plus the pots! I had to come in to cool down and drink some water - it’s 84 degrees and I was in the full sun the whole time. I can work long periods in the sun but can’t just sit in it. I’ll go back out in an hour or so and try to finish that bed.
Just thought I’d check in.

Bubba was bragging to his boss one day, "You know, I know everyone there is to know. Just name someone, anyone, and I know them."
Tired of his boasting, his boss called his bluff, "OK, Bubba how about Tom Cruise?"
"Sure, yes, Tom and I are old friends, and I can prove it. " So Bubba and his boss fly out to Hollywood and knock on Tom Cruise's door, and sure enough, Tom Cruise shouts, "Bubba! Great to see you! You and your friend come right in and join me for lunch!"
Although impressed, Bubba's boss is still skeptical. After they leave Cruise's house, he tells Bubba that he thinks Bubba's knowing Cruise was just lucky.
"No, no, just name anyone else," Bubba says.
"President Clinton," his boss quickly retorts.
"Yes," Bubba says, "I know him, let's fly out to Washington."
And off they go. At the White House, Clinton spots Bubba on the tour and motions him and his boss over, saying, "Bubba, what a surprise, I was just on my way to a meeting, but you and your friend come on in and let's have a cup of coffee first and catch up."
Well, the boss is very shaken by now, but still not totally convinced.
After they leave the White house grounds, he expresses his doubts to Bubba, who again implores him to name anyone else.
"The Pope," his boss replies. "Sure!" says Bubba. "My folks are from Poland, and I've known the Pope a long time."
So off they fly to Rome. Bubba and his boss are assembled with the masses in Vatican Square when Bubba says, "This will never work. I can't catch the Pope's eye among all these people. Tell you what, I know all the guards so let me just go upstairs and I'll come out on the balcony with the Pope." And he disappears into the crowd headed toward the Vatican.
Sure enough, half an hour later Bubba emerges with the Pope on the balcony. But by the time Bubba returns, he finds that his boss has had a heart attack and is surrounded by paramedics.
Working his way to his boss' side, Bubba asks him, "What happened?"
His boss looks up and says, "I was doing fine until you and the Pope came out on the balcony and the man next to me said, "Who's that on the balcony with Bubba?"
BACK TO WORK BUT HOPEING FOR A QUIET WEEK

Michele ~ Good morning to you! Looking forward to “talking” to you later. It’s hot here - in the high 80s, both yesterday and tomorrow. The humidity isn’t too bad right now but we could use some rain. How did Amber do with the Science Olympiad?

Blue ~ That sounds like a great way to spend a Sunday. You deserve to indulge yourself once in a while (as long as it doesn’t become a habit)!

Ercie ~ I’m headed out to work in the flower beds in a little while. I hope mine look as nice as yours.

Karenmarie ~ I laughed when I read your last post - songs I know!

Ever have one of those days when you just feel down for no reason? Yesterday was like that for me. I woke up feeling much happier today but now need to "pay the piper" for the bad habits I revisited yesterday. I started the day Sparking and caught up on 24 hours of my friend feed and cleared the clutter in my apartment. I'd spark, clean, spark, clean... you get the idea. Now, I'm going outside to work in one of my flower beds.
See you later,
Sheila

Hi Everyone,

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I spent the day drinking wine paired with some tasty food. I didn't stay in my calorie range.... emoticon

Ercie and Michele...I hope you enjoyed your day working in the garden.

We have had a good weekend. I worked in the yard a couple of hours. Have the spot ready for tomoatos and some weeds and grass out of some of the flower beds. They always look so nice when I am done.

Good evening, all! Just wanted to check in real quick. It's quiet here today!

My goodness! It got emoticon here today! 91 degrees and just as HUMID as can be! Didn't go to the park today-too hot for that!

I mowed the lawn, it really needed it with the rain we got last week. And weeded the garden. Everything is coming along well. I'm going to turn the sprinkler on tonite for a little bit.

Amber has a couple friends over. I need to chase them out in a few minutes.

Have a good night! emoticon

Hi Everyone...

I had a somewhat relaxing day, which included a two hour bike ride and a walk with DH and Jag. Tomorrow DH and I are going to meet my brother for a wine tasting event...

Michele...My kids spilled a glass of milk on my laptop. It took 4 weeks for it to dry out so I could use it.

Sheila...What great weather...it's nice your community supports it's charities and recycling at the same time.

Karenmarie...I can relate to the Commodores...

emoticon Today just got away from me BIG TIME!! I hate days like that!

Blue, yeah my garden survived pretty much intact. They were a little droopy but OK.

Amber is in the Science Olympiad this year. She had to be at the school at 7am to be bussed to the high school, and won't be back til about 4:30 or so. It's a competition against all the elementary schools in 2 counties plus Ft. Hood. That's roughly 12 elementary schools total. And she loves science! Her project has something to do with light refraction. She's also competing in bridge building. For whatever reason, tho, I woke up later than usual which, of course, throws the whole day off. And last night Amber spilled her macaroni & cheese all over the keyboard. The FIRST time I ever let her eat at the 'puter and look what happens. I had to take the keyboard apart and spray it down, let it dry overnight & put it back together late this morning. There are a couple keys that are a little sticky still but it's OK.

Anyway, I need to get dressed and ready to go get her. Hopefully, they'll be back on time...

Blue ~ The concert was wonderful and I did manage to avoid the pie! You can give yourself points for the day Spark was down - did you read the notice I posted in here?
Ercie ~ Was yesterday a better day?
Not doing much today. It’s 80 degrees with beautiful sunshine right now. I just got back from the store and dropping some paper recycling off at the church - they use the money to fund the food pantry for local families. Now, I’m thinking about loading the plastic/metal recycling into my car and taking it to the drop-off. The local park system gets that money. My weekly trash pick-up has a recycling option but I figure since I’m sorting it anyway I might as well take it where I know it will do some good - rather than let the trash company reap the benefits.
Bye for now - I’ll probably stop back later.

Hi Everyone...

emoticon on our win for week 2...

I missed everyone last night...glad SP is back online. I had a busy Friday...went out to lunch with friends, drove the kids around...and around. I had a portabella mushroom burger that was very good and a nice serving of veggies. I also went for a short walk.

Michele...Did you garden survive the pounding rain?

Sheila...I hope you had a good time at your concert. It's great you are thinking about eating healthy.

Ercie...I am happy it's Friday too...I hope you have a relaxing weekend.

Didn't make it to bed yet - but after this post I'm out of here!

We (challenge leaders) know a lot of challenge participants log onto Spark in the evening after work and couldn't get on yesterday. That means they were unable to get the points for Wednesday's chat or for communications with other participants while those of us who can Spark in the morning could.

We have decided that everyone should give themselves the 50 points for Wednesday's chat and the 100 points for BSG interaction for Wednesday. We truly think it's the fair way to handle the problems we had with Spark being down.

Just read this in a blog and thought I'd pass it on.

Keep your streak - If you missed logging in yesterday due to the outage

You can go to:
www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/sparkpoints_sp
in_outage.asp


to receive login credit for 5/16/2013. If a person already has points for 5/16/2013, the page will tell you that you already have login points for the day.

If you do not, it will randomly pick a point value - similar to if a person does not have flash installed. So, there is no actual wheel spin and your streak will be updated.

Hello, everyone!
We're all late in posting today, aren't we. This is the first chance I've had to log on today. I started the morning at the car dealer (again) and my mirror is finally replaced. I guess I was pretty vocal in my dissatisfaction because they didn't charge me labor, painted the mirror for free, washed my car, washed the windows inside and out, and vacuumed it! Wow! The people in the Auto Body section were much more pleasant and professional than those in the service section.
Then, a close friend called and we decided to take the dogs to the dog park. She said she had something important to discuss. Turns out she has a growth on the bone over her eye that is eating into the bone. She's going to a specialist in Cleveland on Wednesday, but her doctor here told her to be prepared for some difficult results. I offered to take her. I am praying that things are going to be okay.
Visited with mom for a little while and then came home and took a 30 minute nap. I'm getting ready to check out all the team's points now to see who was the top team for week 2.
Sleep well tonight!

I'm not going to do the team points count to find the winning team for the week until this evening due to Spark being down so long yesterday. Please give yourself the bonus points if you tried to log on in time and couldn't.
Please make sure I have your team total by at least 8 central time tonight (Friday).

Sheila, I just now sent you the team totals for this week. I got held up when SP was down last night. According to FaceBook, it was because 'a fire started where the servers are'. SO sorry, Sheila!

Michele ~ We had one “small” thunderstorm yesterday and a few showers. Not at all what was predicted! In fact, it turned out to be a pleasant day. I hope your plants did okay and were protected from the worst of the storm. I’m hoping to get some plants in the flower beds next week.
My cats don’t seem to care if it storms except for moving away from an open window so as not to get wet!
Mom is doing much better. We bought an over-the-counter knee brace that seems to be giving her more stability or is at least improving her confidence.
I did so well in week 1 staying on track with my nutrition but fell apart in week 2. This week is going to be better!
Most of the swelling is down in my knee but it’s still a little sore. I’m going to walk today but not do any work with an exercise DVD.

Blue ~ Weed whacking! That’s something I need to do and keep avoiding. I did it at my mom’s last week but just can’t seem to find the motivation to work on those darn weeds here at home.

Ercie ~ A friend just recommended that tea to me because I often have trouble falling asleep. Does it help? I’m not a tea drinker at all so I’m not sure if I’d like it.

I have to get back to where I was mentally in Week 1 because I lost control in Week 2. I can’t believe how much I overate! and the stuff I ate! Week 3 is here now and so is my motivation. THIS IS GOING TO BE A BETTER WEEK!

I’m not eating a lot for breakfast and lunch because I’m saving my calories (!) for tonight. I’m going to a dinner concert and am not sure what will be served. It is usually chicken but also usually not cooked in the healthiest way. I figure I’ll eat the meat/protein and the vegetables (unless it’s corn - hate it) and potatoes (hope it’s baked and not mashed). I’ll take my own salad dressing and maybe eat one wheat dinner roll (no butter). Definitely no pie (and they are so good!).
The concert is Southern Gospel and the group is Greater Vision. I’ve heard them several times and enjoy their music. Here’s a clip of one of there songs.
www.youtube.com/watch?v=UyrncT_Xmys

Otherwise, I don’t have much planned for the next few days. Does anyone have plans to do anything special over the weekend?
Stay positive and enjoy what today brings your way.

Good morning, everyone!

WOW!! Did we ever have some AWFUL, HORRENDOUS, WICKED thunderstorms roll through this morning. They woke me up at 1:45am! It was one of those HUGE claps of thunder that seemed to echo forever. They went on like that for about a good 45 minutes, along with the kind of pounding rain that is SO not good for the ground--not too mention my garden.I wound up with both dogs and ALL my cats PLUS Amber in bed with me emoticon Pretty crowded! And it's STILL raining! I need to go check out the damage when it becomes daybreak.I put my containers of veggies up on the porch yesterday afternoon becuz it looked like a bad storm was rolling through emoticon

Sheila, has the swelling gone down at all? Your mom is OK, tho? Yesterday wasn't a too good eating day for me, either. I didn't go over on anything--just had a couple extra 'crap snacks' that I did NOT need but I caved anyway emoticon

Ercie, I have my limits set to the same thing! I'm hooked on Peppermint team and the occasional Orange & Jasmine team.

Blue, I took out a bag and a half of junk from my daughter's room yesterday. Broken toys, crayons lying around, scraps of paper...BUT I also found a pair of sneakers and an unopened box of crayons. Plus I earned $1.47 for cleaning her room emoticon (change that I found on the floor). Today I'm cleaning her closet!

I doubt I'll get my haircut today, either. With the rain and all I'm sure there'll be plenty to do. Maybe tomorrow???

I'll check back in later!
Have a super day!

The article stressed it was important train all the muscles in the shoulders and gave a list of some good choices.

Hi Everyone,

I had another busy day cleaning and more weed whacking. I am definitely ready for the weekend.

Michele...I have working on cleaning out closets for a while now. I will tackle the kids room when school lets out.

Karenmarie...Swimming sounds like great exercise.

Sheila...I hope you knee feels better soon. I am really looking forward to that time when everything feels easy...

Ercie...I love cheese....

Well I got my points posted for this week. Well according to my own set goals I was over my calorie but according to the Spark Solution I was just under. I have my limit set at 1000 to 1200 and Sparks has it up to 1500 and today I was 1435. I think I too much cheese.

Just finished a cup of sleepytime tea in the new tea pot and cup that my grandson and his mom and dad got me for Mothers Day. Yum Yum

I've been going back and rereading some articles in the hopes of jumpstarting my motivation and progress.
Today I read:
Write Your Vision Statement for Weight Loss
Find Out Why You've Set Your Goals

articles.asp?id=695


I think it's time for me to do a new vision statement and focus on how it should inspire me and give me direction.

Sorry I’ve been AWOL for a few days. I’ve had some problems with swelling of my knee and the pain medication really zonked me out. I felt like I was in a fog and have finally decided I’d rather deal with the pain right now. Mom insisted on going to get her hair done the other day and refused to take her walker - she started to go down, I grabbed - I went down on my bad knee but she stayed up. She feels terrible about it but maybe she’ll listen to me now. Anyway, it feels better today - I’m just trying to keep my leg elevated and ice it every hour or so for 15 minutes. The swelling is down and I did go babysit for SPHAPPYHIKER so she and her husband could go to a banquet. I had fun playing cards with their foster daughter and watching their sons play cars.
This has not been a good week for me in any way - food-wise, exercise-wise, point-wise! I promise to do better in week 3 although I’m going to a dinner concert tomorrow evening - whoops, there goes the diet!
It’s hard to believe that week 3 of our challenge starts tomorrow! May is flying by, or at least it seems that way to me.
I’m going to catch up on posts now. Please don’t think I’m crazy if I comment on something you wrote a few days ago - I just want to catch up with everyone.

Blue ~ I went to a Rembrant exhibit in Columbus not long ago. I wonder if it’s a traveling exhibit and we saw the same one. I truly enjoyed it.
I understand your comment about going in circles quite well - and know the feeling. It’s like we’re running on a giant hamster wheel and getting nowhere!

Karen ~ I enjoyed your “my mother” quips and comments!

Michele ~ The car is fixed, except for the mirror that needs replaced. It’s ordered and should be in by next week. The service was poor. I don’t usually complain because I know everyone has off days in their jobs but they were really incompetent - from scheduling the appointment to asking why I was there (you have to tell them that when you schedule, which I did!), to asking if I wanted the recall item taken care of, to asking if I wanted them to check why the tire pressure light was on, to forgetting to order the mirror last month! I din’t pull any punches and know they were glad to see me drive off the lot!
I bought a container garden of grass at the pet store for Jake - he won’t touch it! I guess that goofy cat only likes flowers.
I started to buy flowers to finish up planting at my mom’s the other day. Good thing I didn’t as temps went down to the low thirties a couple of nights. I’m thinking I’ll wait another day or two!

Ercie ~ Frisbee golf is really popular around here and several of the parks have courses. They call it disk golf and I love watching them play. I would love the jalepeno talapia! Sounds like you had a great day.

Michele & Blue ~ I’m cleaning, too - very slowly! I do a little bit every day - I guess that’s one of the perks of living alone - your messiness doesn’t affect other people.
