From today until Sunday afternoon I will be very busy with the Nursing School activities. I'm preparing lunch for about 23 people for tomorrow then we'll go right into a three day Spiritual Retreat for the nursing students. Although I plan to sleep at my own home, I will be with the students from early morning through late evenings. I hope to stay busy and not eat too much as all my meals will be at the retreat.

I won't be Sparking much at all until after retreat.

My refrigerator died on Monday and yesterday was declared non revivable. A new one was ordered but so hopefully will becoming to town within a short time... a week or so? I'm using a tiny loaner. At least I got my fridge cleaned.

I've finished teaching the second two week class of computers. Now I have two weeks before Nursing school starts again. We're starting August 29 with a three day Spiritual retreat and then classes begin on September 2. I'll be teaching two subjects, but all involving Maternity nursing.

I've lost a couple of pounds. Now to continue to lose.
It's a National Holiday here... for three days. Independence Day for this small African country.

Have a good day.

I'm excited to be starting round 2 of HCG! I got down to my previous low weight (166, previously done April 2011) and maintained for four weeks. I've started round two and will have to shop after this round.

Amber,
There are about a dozen active members on the team. Some come daily to Huddle at least. Some come a couple of times a week. We don't have those who often chat though but please do join us and try to promote the team. What we do have are Omaha members who get together once or twice a year so some of us have actually met.
I live out of the country but plan to retire in Omaha at the end of next year. When I have been in Omaha I have been to the SparkOmaha gatherings.

Just three more days of teaching computer. That course will finish Wednesday.
This week the country has three days of Holiday celebrating Independence from France. I'll have extra time at home so hopefully I'll use it wisely and EXERCISE.

I start teaching a two week computer course today. Regular fall Nursing School classes start up again at the start of September.
I'm eating too much and gaining weight which is NOT GOOD.

Wendy, I'm glad you're back. I don't think there were any meetings while you were gone.

I've not had internet in my home since Monday evening. It finally started working again this noon. WooHoo! We still don't have our internet phone system working and I guess there are other glitches in our system but we have internet now and I'm so glad. We had it in one office so for the last few days I've done a bit of internet there but not having it in my house cramps my style!

in just a few points I will get the Level 20 TROPHY!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Now if I only had lost lots of weight in the 5 1/2 plus years it has taken to earn all those points! I'm not giving up though!!!!!!!

Chris, you ARE busy!
My internet has been fixed. The house needed a new wireless router. It was installed last this afternoon and everything seems to be working fine.
WooHoo!

Working lots this summer. See my blogs for updates. Swim team went great for the kids, but that's over now. HCG diet going great. I'm in maintenance phase now. Again, see my blogs.

We're really having a problem with internet. It comes. It goes. I often have to go into the attic to reboot the routers. It's getting tiring. I've not been Sparking much because of it.

Otherwise I'm ok.

Chris, you HAVE been busy. I'm glad you are getting more work locally so you don't have to commute so often. Also, sorry that you're having foot problems and can't exercise like you would like to.

I'm keeping very busy as on Monday I started teaching a two week computer class, two hours a day, Monday through Friday. I come home from the class just exhausted. In the mornings I work some at the hospital.

This has been my last day of vacation. I return to work tomorrow, supervising Nursing Students in the morning and teaching summer school in the afternoons. The computer course should be fun since most students have never before touched a computer. The course will last Monday through Friday for two weeks, two hours a day.

I've been eating horribly! I MUST stop this eating binge!!

Mako, how did you son's surgery go?

I'm excited because my cousin, HUSKERROXANNE just rejoined SparkPeople. She is the one who invited me to SparkPeople in 2008. Welcome Roxanne, back to SparkPeople and to the SparkOmaha team!

Today we are taking our college freshman shopping for the necessities of dorm life. Tomorrow my oldest son, he's 14, will be having knee surgery. His ACL actually pulled a bone fragment off inside of knee. He also has two tears in his meniscus. I hate anesthesia! I'll be fine once he comes out of that.

Here's a Chat Room for the Omaha team. Come meet others and just get to know each other better.

I have just finished one week of vacation and plan to enjoy one more week of a STAYCATION, staying at home. Then the next two weeks I'll be teaching a computer class to Nursing Students.
