Thanks for the support ladies. I had a heart to heart with my boss today and I'm hoping to see a bit less stress in the coming weeks. But first, bring on the weekend!!

Yay for efficient car repairs and house renovation people! And boo to anxiety attacks - one of my brothers used to get those, I know how debilitating they can be.

In my life, yay to walking 4.5 miles around Seattle - though with the hills, my knee is telling me that was a little too much. And boo to DH, who continues to buy me "treats" that always seem to be high calorie. I actually had a low calorie/high protein soup dinner (cioppino!) to make up for the scone he bought that I couldn't resist. So then he bought me a chocolate chip with walnuts cookie. Yeah, we had another talk. I can resist buying these items in the supermarket. But when he brings it home and hands it to me, it isn't so easy! AGH!

He has become a food pusher!!!!!

Hellooooooooooooooo and happy Friday. Going in late to work yesterday after running, put me in a Friday state of mind. Not good on a Thursday!

Dee, sorry about the anxiety attack. My daughter battles them and depression as well. Some days can be overwhelming.

Looking forward to some yoga later to stretch out my tight muscles.

Happy Friday!

Sorry about the panic attacks, Dee - those are the worst, and I hope you've seen the end of them.
Toni, I'm sure you'll find more sand when you unpack back at home.

I had a good visit with the surgeon yesterday. He says I'm right on track, and I go back in 3 more weeks (at the 4 week mark) for another checkin and xrays to see how the bone is healing. He cleared me to use only one crutch around the house, which is very helpful if I want to carry something when hubby isn't around:). I can continue to play with weight bearing on the crutches, being careful to not overdo it. The trick is to bear enough weight to stimulate the bone growth, but no so much to aggravate the injury. So I need to pay close attention to how I feel and my pain levels. Interestingly, he said that since I'm in "pretty good shape," they'll wait longer to start physical therapy, to give the bone more chance to heal before stressing it. I guess this is good for my patience muscles:).

Now I need to get to work - have a great Friday everyone!

Oh the joy of being retired, where weekends are the same as weekdays!

Just grocery shopping and condo business on tap for today. I am so ready for next week when my sister comes to visit and the weather will finally get back to normal. This heat is draining.

Donna, any word on your transmission? There's a lot to do in Missoula, but I can't imagine it without transportation.

Morning all! Finally Friday! Woohoo!

Dee - Ugh, panic attacks. Hope you get some time to recharge!

Maree - Yay for no travel! I don't miss my old job when I traveled at least 2 days a week. And I hope the floor looks amazing when finished!

Just trying to get through today and make it to the weekend!

Hope that everyone has a good one!

Yay Friday

I'm sharing your anxious moments, Dee. It has been so long since I had a long slow weekend to recharge - no guests, no events, no having to go in to work on a Saturday for "a few hours" - that I think that's what's triggered my anxiety. Plus, of course, new Things demanded of us from the county govt. I think next weekend I can get my 2 days of Ahhhh, though. Funny how much of life, not just weight management, is about balance.

Oh Donna - what a bummer about that transmission. I hope you're finding Montana an interesting place to visit. Here's hoping you'll be on your way home soon. Good for you, Kelly, for pushing through the challenges. Yay for the flooring guy, Maree - who's coming on Saturday. I can promise you - the plumber (who promises we're next) - will not be here tomorrow. Monday, maybe.

On a happy note - I'll finish up the first knitted baby garment today. Just need some buttons and I bet I have some in my button box.

Rock your Friday, maintainers.

Good morning! Last day at the beach and aiming to take it slowly and soak in the sights and the activities I love here. Plan to swim and walk.

Big family table game last night--spoons. Hysterical for all concerned and a hit with our 9 year old grandson which was most of the point.

My eating has not been perfect, but not terrible. Hoping all the movement will balance it out.

Happy Friday all. For us it is packing up day. Suspect we'll be taking some sand with us...

Good morning!

The good news is I don't have to spend the day travelling today, and my pathetic plea for the flooring guy to come back and install the baseboard worked -- he's coming Saturday morning at 8:30. (I mentioned "losing my sanity " from being torn up...)

I can hardly wait. DD is coming tonight, and staying the weekend. We're going to "Little Mermaid " at Muni Opera tonight, a birthday party tomorrow afternoon, out to dinner Saturday night, church and breakfast with friends Sunday am. I'll be working on returning my house to normal every other spare moment.

Hope the car repair goes well, Lynch. And that no more panic attacks occur, Dee and Jamirblaze. I don't think I've ever had one of those. --

It looks like it will be a good weekend to stay in town as rain is predicted for all day Saturday.

Good luck with those long runs Kellie and hope you're feeling stronger after the ST workout, Bess.

Hope all have a great day!
