Happy Thursday ... 2nd day of school; and looking forward to it!! and then a road trip !!!WOOHOO!

Thursday, October 11, 2018

Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)

We also have ice for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...

Yesterday was spent 99% of my day working on my quilt .. I'm on a section right now where I really have to concentrate to make it work out .. and well -- the hardest part was keeping the bopsie twins occupied .. lol lol but they were good (for the most part .. lol) ..

I took breaks throughout the day; because I found myself so engrossed in what I was doing I was literally hunching over the sewing table .. and well -- it took it's toll, my back started to hurt, and I ended up taking a couple of Aleve .. because I was working in hubby's bathroom, which is also the laundry room, and I can set up my ironing board, which I set up higher than before, and used the washing machine for pinning my pieces together, after ironing them out sharp .. But I got to a point where all I will have to do is sew them on .. and then trim them down .. :) This is truly becoming a "patchwork quilt" .. lol lol lol ..

I did do my exercises, and they are becoming easier and easier .. I just don't like the feeling of being woozy when I get up for a bit .. but we'll ask about that today .. but I continue !!! and believe it or not ..they are getting easier and easier .. :)

Today is day 2 of school .. and I have a few questions, but mostly I'm happy that even in 2 days I've felt improvement .. (as long as those little voices keep telling me to sit up straight when I'm working with my quilt, and not overshot with the intensity of working on the project .. lol)

Hubby is taking me there this morning, and we are heading to the Dells after I'm done ... :) Looking forward to the road trip .. :)

I'm sad to say that Jack has become a pile of ooze .. the warmth of the last few days did NOT do him good .. Hubby came home and asked if I looked at Jack when he came home, and I told him no .. I haven't looked at all .. I think Jack has LEFT THE BUILDING !!!!!

We're just waiting for a couple days of cold weather, to eliminate the flies that have been buzzing around .. so probably by tomorrow he'll be carted out in the back 40 to finish off his replenishing the earth .. lol lol ...Sad he didn't make it to Halloween, but while we enjoyed the warmer weather; he didn't .. Mother Nature took over, and well -- melted him .. lol ..

So -- today when I finish at School, we're heading to the Dells to spend the day there .. I think I'm going to take a couple of Aleve, just in case to take after school is out .. They called yesterday and switched my appointment's' for next week to an appointment .. changing it from Monday to Tuesday ... Jennifer is off, and Matthew will be taking over .. It's only 1 day worth of school .. glad I looked at the list; because I was under the impression that it was just the time that was changed ..

I did get texts from work yesterday .. Linda asked a simple question that I could just look up and send a reply .. and then the texts started coming again, but thankfully; it ended up planning for going out to dinner .. which we have scheduled for next Wednesday .. :) Kim said that even if Linda can't make it, we are STILL going .. Third time's a charm huh ??? lol ..

I'm happy to say that I'm in a really good place right now .. and feel great .. I have some questions for my "teacher" today; but really no concerns .. My biggest concern right now, is to keep up my new habits ... I just have to remember the alternatives .. and not put off .. "oh .. I'm tired tonight, so I will pass on the exercises .. it's not going to hurt anything" .. Nope ---- make time and do the exercises .. It's just creating the habit .. and as long as I keep out Negative Nelly ... I know it can be possible !!!!!

So --- as you can see .. my life is at a quiet point right now, and I'm very happy for that !!!!

I may not have prancing unicorns right now, but I feel that I feel good enough and am exercising enough to at least have fun with the baby unicorns .. lol lol .. and heck ... he keeps me on my toes .. lol lol ..... the big unicorns will come back again .. and once I understand what needs to be done, I can move forward !!!!

Wishing you a playful day !!!!! :) I'm going to have one !!!! :)

    so happy for you
    I have two days of nothing no plans
    I had my mamogram and never felt this bad after the squeezes
    raw is a good word pain another. She raised the machine up after squeezing so thus the rawness.
