So, let us play catch up with me at least. LOL

So yes, the whole plumbing thing went down and I got that fix but there was so much that had to be tossed and cleaned. So I then spent time doing that while having a house full of sick kids, trying to help my dd with finals and robotic competitions and the such. Needless to say, not much was getting done. My daughter turned 16 though and that is cool...I think.

Dh came out on the 18th and left this sat. It was all rush rush to do shopping, get a tree and other such things. Still had to fix the kitchen sink which he sort of did but didn't finish and not it seems clogged again or at least a slow drain but I can't do anything about it because the pipes need replaced.

So with that and kids being sick and me getting sick, I've been here and there and I'm serious, leaving the house at 9 and getting home at 9 and getting to bed as late as 3 and for the past couple of days that he's been gone I've not been getting to bed till around 5 every morning.

When school starts back up...

Yeah, let us not talk about that right now...

Ngchild - I don't know why I told me niece I would do this with her. I guess after the bad and emotional autumn our family had, I want to live life a bit more. Maybe it will help with my hot flashes!! LOL!!

Kat - I hope you are feeling better!!

Hope everyone has a marvelous Monday!! emoticon

Renee, the same happens at my dad's side get togethers. We eat at 1 and family walks in a few minutes before and everyone but us is gone an hour later. Everyone is SO busy. It's ridiculous. We do the same thing Christmas. Mom picks who starts and we go and round the room and we each open 1 at a time. It's fun!

I miss the big family get togethers but it seems those times are past. I feel bad for my son because he will never know that. But you can't miss what you have never known right? It might not necessarily be a bad thing. LOL.

The polar plunge? Yikes! You will need a wet suit! We can and will do this Linda!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend! !

Hugs!!

I'm at the highest weight I have ever been. But I'm not depressed about it, I'm pi$$ed!! I did this to myself. So, it's time to quit eating all the wrong foods and get more exercise in. I will get this weight off!! My niece and myself are going to do the polar plunge next year, we both need to lose weight. LOL!!

Hope all is well with everyone!! emoticon

oh no... I hope the are feeling much better and that you are spared!

our Christmas went well, Sunday, my sister, her hubby and son & our mom came over, it went well overall, I reckon, in that we ate and exchanged gifts, but they act like they can't stay long... EVERY time they come over. I had a couple of games to play, and had to twist their arms to play just 2 short rounds of Scattergories... they wanted to leave after just one... the game is played in 3 rounds.. sis's hubby wouldn't play at all. He went outside on the porch for a few minutes. After the second round and we did the scoring, my sis stood up and said do we throw these away? (the sheet for the lists) so I didn't even get to try to talk them into the last round... and I shouldn't have to, it's a fun game and we are family! Sheesh! Then there was another fun game I had planned... but I didn't even mention it, nope, they had to leave. :/ or let me correct that... they WANTED to leave. they weren't there 2 hours. I was irked, kinda hurt, and then felt pretty much, "whatever." know what I mean? Anyhow....

Christmas Eve was lots of fun. my in-laws came over and we ate, talked, read the Christmas Bible Story, played 2 rounds of dirty Santa (my son bought stuff for a game, and my mil brought stuff for a game... non-traditional style)... and with hers once we were done with the gifting, each of us had to act out or sing something that went with the gift. :) For example, I ended up with a blue stuffed dog so I had to sing Blue Christmas. :) I can't sing at all, either, but it was lots of fun. :) then we did the gift opening thing... They were at my house nearly 4 hours.

Christmas day was just us. We did Santa, Stockings then a long time of opening gifts. (Due to a bad experience one year long ago... I don't allow everyone to open gifts all at once... and they have to open them in the order I say... it's like a game and my kids now look forward to it every year because it's not over in 30 minutes. I was up at 5AM and we didn't get done with it all until 11:30. :) Of course, coffee, juice and cinnamon rolls were on the menu for the breakfast break... We had dinner around 2. Then they enjoyed their gifts and lazing around, naps... :) son went and got his girlfriend and she opened her gifts. :) then when it got dark we went looking at Christmas lights. It was a great, too short, day. :)

Today I'm at work.

Our Christmas was pretty good. My sister and her family came into town on Sunday and became sick on Tuesday. My brother in law didn't get out of bed at all yesterday. They are driving home today. Please say a prayer for them to make it safely and pray for the rest of us who spent 3 days with them in the same house. I hope we don't get it!

UGH.

Good morning!!

Have a wonderful day!! I'm getting my last minute things done for Christmas. I'm going to really, really try hard to cut my eating during the Christmas holiday. New Years we don't do anything so I'm not worried about that.

My son and I are going to a winery today to pick out some wine for my parents. What fun!!

Big hugs to you all and stay warm!! Today it's 7 degrees!! Brrrrrr!!

Sorry I've been missing! I even realized that even though I've been spinning the wheel, I forgot to do my status update for 3 days! Yikes.

I've been a little bit busy. DH came home days ago and it was in the middle of the night, when I normally do my online stuff. Last night I never went to sleep, was up at 7 am and decided to go get some breakfast for the family. Things have been busy and with winter break it means less time during the day to be on because kids want on...even less time during the night since they want to watch their shows and things of the such soooo.

Hi Lynz and welcome to the Hotties!!

Linda, glad hubby's appt went well. Men have a hang up about doctors and telling spouses information. If I didn't love him so much I would kill him sometimes. LOL.

Renee, have fun at TSO! The show is AWESOME!!!!

Kat -- where are you??

Hope everyone is having a good week. Max and I are meeting hubby at work for lunch and doing a bit of grocery shopping. We have a full calendar from now until Christmas and everywhere we go I have to take food. Typical right? Trying to keep it healthy but it's a struggle! I have decided to eat as best I can and not beat myself up over a few pound gain. It's Christmas after all and I know as soon as it's over my mind and body will be back on track!

Ho ho ho hum.

LOL

Hubby's cancer doctor appointment went well. He did tell the doctor he has a lump under his arm. (no, he didn't tell me this). She said it was a cyst and she is not concerned about it. If it gets painful or bigger he can have it removed. Thank God it's not a lymph node!!

We ate breakfast out at a diner. I know, not the best choice. Hubby had to fast for the blood work. It was so good!! I had a western omlet with whole wheat toast and water. It was a bit greasy. I'm paying for it not!! Tummy feels a little queezy!! LOL!!

Have a nice evening!!

Good morning Hotties!

I am new to the team, but not new to spark! I am reaching out and expanding my teams and came across this amazing one!

I can’t believe Christmas is a week from today! Wow! I am glad I am almost ready for it! One or two more presents to get wrapped and then I have some Santa gifts to get wrapped and hidden!

NGCHILD – I have about 50-60 pounds left to reach my goal weight by next year too!

Well, hope to get to know you all over time! Have a great Wednesday! It’s my weigh in for another team and I am down 4.6 pounds from last week! It’s a great day!

Good morning hotties!!

Can you believe Christmas is a week from tomorrow? The year has flown by!

Staying on track but not losing. Just treading water until January and then it's on! This last 50 pounds is going SOMEWHERE else! I can and will do this! I just know it.

Good afternoon!!

Renee - so glad to hear you are feeling better!! emoticon

The computer is working again but I have not slept well Friday night or last night. My son goes out a lot and I just can't sleep until I hear him come through the door. I thought it got easier when kids got older!? NOT!!! LOL!!

I made some banana bread this morning, not the best recipe. First time I tried it. Don't know if I'll make it again.

Have a wonderful Sunday!! emoticon

things are... except I have a zombie eye. Looks ridiculous. I do have a headache in my temples and behind my eyes, but not bad. I'll take something here shortly. I'm having a hard time getting back into the swing of things. Missing a week of work makes me feel like ... now what do I do again? LOL. I'll be glad when I can go home: 4:30.

Lyn, hope you had fun shopping!

Kat, so sorry about all that, but kudos to you for all the writing! you rock.

I reckon y'all now know I was sick all week. wee hours of 12/2 I began having severe abdominal cramps, then body aches, throbbing headaches, then fever, and I couldn't get out of bed. I was completely miserable for 2 days, the 3rd day I tried to get up, but that didn't fly well, so I stayed in bed again, but at least together enough to eat soup and crackers and watch tv. I Netflixed Glee for hours between naps... Thursday I was a better enough to actually get up and move around. I was able to finally get the lights on my tree... but that was about it. I spent a lot of time lying on the couch... but at least I was fever and cramping free! Friday was a huge improvement and I got the tree and other stuff done.... and began trying to catch up here... wow, missing several days put me way behind... but I'm getting there. Today was my first outing since last Sunday... and I got a bad headache again... and an blood vessel burst in my eye... why the heck? just what I needed on top of beginning to feel crappy again... and I gotta work tomorrow! Can't miss any more!

My weighed fluctuated so much this week it was ridiculous.

I hope y'all have a wonderful week!

Good morning,

Kat - I'm so sorry!! Sending some love, hugs and positive vibes!! emoticon

Well, it's a snow day for us. Wednesday was in the 50s and yesterday was freezing with snow and sleet. The weathermen say another snow storm is coming though. I hate snow days because we have to make them up. I'd rather get out of school before Memorial Day, I rather work in the kitchen when it's cold outside, not when it's 90 and above!!

I joined weight watchers on line yesterday. I'm hoping it will help with my eating. I'm committed for 3 months. I wanted to try the new points system. It's cheaper than going to the meetings.

Have a fantastic Friday!! emoticon

Okay, so my update:

I struggled with NaNo this year...sort of. I had an idea, decided to use my old characters, bring them back that is, and then things went down hill from there. Besides dealing with my friends death and keeping my brother in my memory, I then went off to write and then couldn't find my last novel of the series. Not only that, I couldn't find any of my novels on either computer or my USB drive. My writing program went all crazy on me and when I finally found it I found out that I never finished the last novel. I have no idea where to start and just froze. The last week I decided that I was just going to start it and then make the ending of the last one work with it some how. But life gets in the way and my sewer line backed up into the downstairs and flooded it. I waited for days for a plumber and around midnight of the night before thanksgiving they told me they couldn't come. So, I had been waiting for them for so many days, never got around to buying thanksgiving food and so on Thanks giving day I had to wake up, shop, cook and do it all with a broken kitchen sink and a backed up main line. The one company we always use decides on Friday that they don't want to touch the main line suddenly so we have to call up another company who charged us 200 extra and they got it fully cleared out. Issue? Roots. So pissed with the first company because they had us waiting for about a week almost and then pull this, "Well how do you know the issue?" Um you guys are the ones who put a camera down there and told us the issue 3 years ago...that is how! And they asked this question over and over and over. Got on my last nerve.

On top of all of this, the whole house got sick.

I did manage to write the novel in 4 days. 3k words on day one, up to 10k on day 2, up to 22k on day 3 and then up to 50k on day 4.

I'll post a link to the synopsis and the such later.

I hope everyone is doing well this week.

Oh, and my weight is up...way up...so swollen due to eating out because of not wanting to make dirty dishes during that whole issue. *sigh*

Yeah Kat! Hope it went well for you!

Renee, I am usually done by October but have had lots going on this year. I have a few more things to get and then I will be done. My immediate family no longer buys gifts, we buy stockings and spend $25 for each. We still buy for the kids. We have too much as it is and this helps cut down on the clutter. The kids buy for the grandparents too. That is my favorite part! I make a calendar for my dad and this year got my mom a phone cover with the kids pictures on it. Can't wait for them to open them!

I think we will miss those 6 extra days between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I can't believe today is already December 2nd. Ho ho ho, there is goes!

I got a couple deals online on BF. I'm pleased. :)

How are y'all doing on the christmas shopping? :) I have my oldest son, hubby, and father in law still to buy for. Otherwise, all I have left are stocking stuffers and candy. :)

I don't have all my decorating done... my living room in towering in storage boxes! LOL! It normally takes me about a week to get it all out like I like it, including the outside.

Have a great week, y'all!

Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! We have ventured out in the chaos in the past but not this year. We stayed in town and decorated the entire house on Friday. It was so nice to get the tree up and all the decorating done.

I hope everyone has a great start to the week!!

Good morning.

Well, I didn't get to sleep in. My youngest son went out to a friends house. The ended up at a bar, a friend of theirs in in a band and was playing there. Well, my son and his friend drank too much. Another friend was not drinking, too their keys and brought them home. My son was taken to our neighbors house by mistake. They took him in and called me at 130am to let me know he was there. They let him sleep there. I'm very thankful for the good friends my son has and for wonderful neighbors!! I'm going to take a nap!!!

Good morning!!

I'm in a funk too. The stupid scale keeps going in the wrong direction. I know it's my fault but still, can't it give me a bit of a break?? Be kind!? I'm 29 days late for TOM, I don't know if that is causing some of this or what. I think my hormones are out of wack. :-(

I got to sleep in this morning!! I never get to do that, hubby always has to wake me up when he gets up. He spent the night with his brother so they could get up early and deer hunt. I feel great!!

I had to be head cook yesterday. It went well!! We laughed and had fun, NO DRAMA!! WooHoo!!!

Hope everyone has a stupendous Saturday!!! emoticon

Trish, I know the feeling. I missed 3 days in a row due to driving kids around and then not having them home to watch the younger ones. Wasn't too happy but what can I say. I hope you can get that early Christmas present. :)

Monday is here, make this week count! emoticon

With a son in high school, my free time is spent Since I teach, I get finished with work before my husband. Once the children are gone, I will have time to get cardio in before he gets home from work. Right now I am getting the high school student to and from things. I am looking forward to when he gets his license and can drive himself around. He is a sophomore. So in a few years, I'll join the fitness membership at my Holiday Inn. They let you use their pool to swim laps for a yearly free. When I was doing it a few years ago, he was taking the bus home. He was excited that we trusted him home alone for a few hours after school. Now he is too cool for that. He did sign up for winter track which has practice every day until 5-5:30. If he sticks with it, I may look into joining as a Christmas present to myself...

Linda, so sorry about work. It only takes one person with their head up their arse to ruin it for the rest. Hope things are better.

I'm sitting at 213lbs...so...Monday up to 200...Wednesday....206...Friday...213...

I'm surprised I can even get my shoes on at this rate. So swollen. Need to get in my water.''

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Kat... lucky. :) The gym closest to me is 15 miles away, and expensive. :/

Nic... thanks for the link, getting my 500 pts today! :)

Kat, I have been contemplating joining a gym here too. I have stalled again at losing and need something to mix it up a bit. I probably won't be at 100 pounds lost when hubby and I take our trip in February but I am goin anyway!! LOL

Linda -- HUGS! My mom worked in the school district for 25 years and it was DRAMA all the time! Try and steer clear of it. I will be praying for you!

Short weeks are always long! I am ready for the weekend!!

Take care hotties!!

Good morning!

Sorry I've been MIA, work has me almost in tears with stress!!!

Now the kitchen I work in has drama. I guess it's everywhere!! We had a sub come in for 2 days and the head cook doesn't like her so she treated her like crap. The sub went to our boss and complained (I don't blame her). So the boss came and talked to the head cook. The head cook was in such a bad mood yesterday you could not even talk to her. I guess the fun days are over working in this district. I have at least 14 more years until I can retire, Oh boy!!!

Yesterday the head cook didn't talk to anyone and she was slamming things around. A lady I work with asked her if one of us upset her and she said no, it's not us, she can't believe the sub went to our boss and she is so done with this place. I hope she doesn't quit. Then I have to be head cook and I don't want to be head cook at this school.

On a good note we are going out to eat tonight with the family!! Should be fun!! No cooking tonight!!

Have a great day!!

Hello!! I'm Linda/Lyn from St. Louis, MO USA!

Live, laugh, love, relax and play!!

I love life!!!

I am feeling better but there is still something up with my tooth/gum. It seems to be healing though (I think I went a bit too hard on flossing). Thanks for the check up and thanks for the link. Gonna get my 500 points! LOL

I worked with a personal trainer today for the first time. Not sure if I mentioned it but it is just too dark too soon, too cold and too wet to workout outside. So my friends and I found a gym with no fee's to start up, except first and last months and guess what the cost is?

15 dollars a month!

It comes with 2 free sessions with a trainer and for 25 dollars you get one session a month.

I'm happy!

Hi! New to this team. I left Spark People about a year ago and tried Weight Watchers. Although I did lose 8 pounds in 2013, there is more community support here than online at WW. I just couldn't commit to the in person monthly meetings. I would prefer my yoga and Pilates evening classes instead.
So I am back! When I turned 40, I weighed an all time high of 140...I did lose weight in my 40s, weighing 108 at one point...but gained it all back. When I turned 50, I weighed an all time high of 150. My goal is to turn 60 weighing less than 140....Ideally weighing less than 130..I have 8 years to accomplish that. It would be cool to do it by Halloween in 2014 and then just maintain...

Yay on getting that bed fixed Linda. About dang time! LOL And just in time for you to get comfy in it for your head cold *sigh* I hope if goes as quickly as it came.

Renee, I say up your water to 3/4 of a gallon and then move on to 1 gallon. I hit the 3/4 and it wasn't doing much but if I do 1 gallon I'm good. Go over that and I start to hold the water. Also, don't drink it about 3 hours before bed time. That will help you to not be up during the night and it also helps with flushing you out and giving you a lower weight in the morning.

Nic, 11k steps! Wow. I need to do some walking with you. LOL

I hit the gym again today and had a blast. Even the girls I went with were like "Oh my you are killing it!" I out did them! I need to work out like that every day because it just felt darn good.

Kat, congrats on hitting the gym!! I have been considering joining a gym if this weight doesn't start to move. Keeping you in my thoughts.

Renee, tomorrow is a new day. You can do it!!

Took Max to the zoo today. Walked over 11k steps!! It was a beautiful day here in St. Louis!! Hope everyone had a great Saturday!!

Great job on hitting the gym... when do you find time? :)

I'm retaining water really bad this morning. I look so puffy it's pathetic. In spite of drinking my 8 glasses yesterday. :/ I reckon I'll have to up that.... so what's your opinion? The 8 glasses (64 oz) or half your weight in oz? I'm beginning to think it's the latter that's gonna help me.

My eating is still outta control... but each new day is a day to do what I know is right. :)

I'm on a downer, y'all... sorry.

Have a great weekend

Thank you for all the love! I have been doing okay, hitting the gym but not doing so well with eating. Swollen as can be but yesterday and today I really worked at it and so hopefully the swelling will go down and I will see some results!

Hope you all have a great weekend! emoticon

Okay, been having a rough past 2 weeks and just hiding it pretty well. I'm just going to put up dates and notes I've made to friends so that you guys have some understanding on what is going on.

Nov. 1st
This past week has been an emotional one on me. So many ups and downs. But I think the downs are winning no matter how hard I try. I know that the coming days are not going to be any better, especially the next 3 days. Glad that today was something positive and that I'll be sharing tomorrow with friends also.---feeling down

Nov. 2nd

Hallowmas is coming to an end with today being All Souls Day. On this day, three years ago, I picked up the ashes of my brother and held them while standing in the same spot that he passed at. That moment made Hallowmas an even more spiritual journey then it had ever been before. During Halloween, All Saints Day, and All Souls Day I keep in remembrance all of those who have passed. Loving and missing my brother and sister and keeping their memories close to my heart. — feeling sad.

Nov. 4th

Please, please, please God...please let up on me for just one moment... — feeling sad.

As for todays post, I couldn't explain it on FB but can here since it is more private. My best friends brother had a stroke and went into a coma on the 1st. Today they announced him brain dead. He just turned 31 on Halloween.

This is upsetting to me since one of the things that we had in common was that we came from a family of 5 and we both knew that our younger brother was gay and we were the only ones in our family to accept it. Our brothers looked up to us because of it, shared with us and we defended them and still to this day show our support for the LGBT community. Our brothers were the same age and it was so helpful to introduce them to each other and let them know that they were not the only ones living such a wonderful life. They both struggled and it broke our hearts. My brother passed 3 years ago and it hurts to know that my best friends brother had his stroke on the same day that I left to gather my brothers remains and that the day that I brought him home to our family would be the day that her brother left his.

It is almost as if it was a final way to tie us together, through this death of the only brother and sib that we stayed connected with, a sibling that shaped us and put one more stitch into our friendship.

Today she asked me, "How did you get through this?" I love the fact that I can support her but hate the fact that she is going through this. Just as equally, I hate the fact that I've become an expert on losing siblings. At the age of 33, and with being the oldest, I have lost 2 of 4 of my siblings. She has now lost 1 of 4 and I hope and pray it ends there for both of us for the time being.

As for her question...I guess my past post show that you really never get through such a thing...or over it.

Good morning!!

Sorry I didn't check in yesterday, we were so tired. We couldn't get comfortable on the bed in the camper. We did have a good time though, so beautiful with all of the leaves changing. We walked over 4 miles Friday night and Saturday.

Hope you had a nice weekend!! Have a wonderful day my dear friends!! emoticon

Thank you Nic!

Congrats Sarpete, you totally rocked it this year!

Linda...that is beyond frustrating. I hope you enjoy the camping because you need some R&R after this whole hot mess.

Renee, we have the same issue, no one comes down our street. I even went trunk or treating and couldn't get rid of all of the candy. ugh!

My son got Terrific Tiger of the month on Friday! He didn't know he was getting it or that I be there (I knew of course) and was super excited and happy when he saw me. A little funny before I head off to bed. So, we are walking up to the school (we live right across the street) and Ripley is skipping the whole way through (she put back on her fairy costume and wig) and then suddenly gets super whiny on me and says, "Mom, I'm too busy!" and falls to the ground like she is exhausted. I tell her to get up, she's not busy, she's tired. She gets up and starts walking, slow mode mind you and she's still whining about being "busy". I tell her, "Busy is when you are doing something and you are not, you are tired which means you are sleepy and exhausted." and she responds with, " But Mom, I'm not tired! I'm busy! I AM DOING SOMETHING I'm WALKING!"

I could only stop and agree..."Yes you are busy walking..." LOL

Have a great weekend!

Kat and Sarpete -- WAY TO GO!!! Congrats on your goals for Halloween!! Good job Hotties!

Linda -- OMG. So sorry about the bed. Maybe you guys could sleep in the camper until the bed issue is resolved? What a pain for you. Have fun camping. Hubby said this morning he is going to winterize ours this weekend. Just too much going on to get out before Spring! Terrible isn't it?

Renee -- send all the candy!! We had about 100 but still had candy left over. It will go with hubby to work next week. It's dangerous for all of us in the house!! Max has decided he likes Snickers. OMG!

Hope you all have a fabulous Friday and weekend!!

WAY TO GO HOTTIES!!
