Your story about the car reminds me of an incident that happy several years ago. I bought my dh a car for Christmas. and asked the dealer to drop it off at my neighbors. I had arranged with my dh to take her dad to midnight mass so that I could move the car. It was freezing rain that day and my dh decides that she does not want to go to church. I had to take her aside to beg with her to go so that I could move the car. She and dh finally went.

I ran across the street to get the car and it was frozen solid. I could not get the key in the door. Luckily for me my neighbour was still up and came to give me a hand. It took about 30 min to finally get the car in the garage. By this time I am almost in tears because I was so frustrated. But at least I beat their return by about 5 min.

Having a great day! We all have choices every day. We can choose to eat everything we order or we can eat normal portions and take home left overs. Today I made the choice to eat normal portions and take home the rest. It made me feel very good about myself. The menu said 6 oz grilled seasoned chicken breast. I cut it in half. The baked potato was probably 4 servings I cut in in 4ths. I only used half the packet of sourcream and left off the butter. Had a salad before the meal.

Why don't we always make those choices when it makes us feel so good?

Have a great SuperBowl day!

Good morning everyone. Had a great time at the Montreal Rally yesterday. Met up with a group of Sparkers, we walked around the shopping center for 1 hour and then we had lunch a a chance to talk and get to know each other.

Sounds like a good day to me.

Glad you are getting back to normal.

I am not in pain, and am doing fine. It is just that my muscles are quit sore from doing more exercise. Good for me, but it will be awhile before I am strong enough that I don't get sore. It is a process. Don't want you to think I am bad, because I am doing very well. I just get stiff and sore sitting at this computer. My goal is, once my finances are straightened out a bit, is to buy a Smart TV. Then I can sit in my comfy chair and use the Wi Fi on the tv. Then, I will be much more comfortable. With all of this metal in my back, I may never be terribly comfortable sitting at the computer. We will see how it goes.

Anyway, I am so much better that it is all good.

Went to see my GP yesterday for the first time since the surgery. He was checking me out. Wanted to see the incision etc. Surprised me by telling me that he thinks that my surgeon, Dr Healy, is the only surgeon in the city that would have done surgery on my back. That really surprised me and just made me know that things happen as they should. He was my first and only choice for surgeon, but never thought about not being able to get the surgery done. I was blessed that is for sure.

Well,going to get up and have some dinner. Not able to go back and check the posts I have missed. Maybe tomorrow.

Have a great weekend all!

Just got home from having a very relaxing lunch with a friend I don't see often enough. Then we went to Charming Charlie's. Between the two of us, we spent a fortune. But I got 8 prs of earrings, a necklace, a bracelet, a wool scarf, a gorgeous fedora and some hair clips. And she spent twice as much as I did. Good thing we don't do this very often. But it was fun. Lunch was a small rice bowl at Flat Top Grill and then, of course, we did some walking. Plus I did two miles on the treadmill this morning. All in all, a very good day.

Good Evening All

The snow that was expected in the night didnt come, i thought yeah thank goodness, but boy since 7am it hasnt stopped, and its 9pm now, and its quite thick out there, so needless to say i wont be going out OH NO, lol

Marci i have done that myself, its so maddening, the other day i did a nice long post, i dont know what happened, but i lost it all, hence i ended up sending a short one as i couldnt remember what i had wrote lol.

Bonnie so sorry to hear that you are under the weather, hope your back ease`s soon.

Ellen no i havent heared of those places, i bet you found a big differance when you moved from London too Sufolk, i have friends who lived in London and have moved down here, now they live in Bridgend South Wales, and they`ve said they would never move back, they couldnt get over how friendly the people are down here, and having lovely neighbors thats the icing on the cake isnt it,. would you go back?
You said you went to neath to pick your Bonnie and Dilys, we know Neath well, we live about 45 mins from there, i had family living there also, plus we pass there when we go up to Tenby (West Wales) i`m so sorrry you have lost Bonnie and Dilys, we have just lost our Greyhound Flynnigan, well i said just lost, but it was Oct, but it still seems like yesterday, we miss him so much, as i dare say you miss yours too, they are part of the family arnt they.
Yes the snow is forecast, i`m praying it doesnt come to much, do you have much up there? we always seem to get it here. we must be the bad guys here lol.
How are you getting along with Spark? i did lose 4pound last week but i dont think i`ve done so good this week, i`ve been good with my food though, but i just dont feel any thinner, Grrrrrr.

Twilat i`m glad you have had the bandages off,

Going now to have a nice soak in the bath, so take care everyone

Removed bandages today from the foot. Was able to put my sock and shoe on that foot today. I almost feel normal once again. Glad that the hardest part of these foot surgeries are behind me. Monday I will start back at the gym.

Don't know what I'm going to do today. Hubby has to work this weekend, so it's probably going to be a stay at home day.

Have a great weekend!

Good morning everyone! Woke up to snow this morning. Yesterday it was nearly 50 degrees. Ugh! But I do enjoy my lazy Saturday mornings. Off to lunch with a friend and then a movie with another friend. Need to go jump on the treadmill now. Hope you all have a great day!

Hi Gill, so nice to hear from you. We had a flurry of snow last night that just settled on the ground but doesn't hinder you at all.I live in Worlingworth which is a little village in north Suffolk.The nearest places you may of heard of are Framlingham, Eye, Diss and Stowmarket.We have a church, a pub and a school and that's about it but the people here are lovely, very friendly and helpful, so it's a great community.I grew up in north London then moved to Essex then onto Suffolk.
I have had several great holidays in Wales,and it was to Neath in S.Wales that I went to get my two lovely welsh terriers Bonnie and Dilys,who sadly are in doggy heaven now.
I hope you don't get too much snow ( I know it's forecast) stay warm.

Keep going, you"ll get there.

Just checking in to let you all know I am ok. Just have had a busy week. Plus, my back is pretty sore and stiff from upping my exercise program, so it is uncomfortable to sit and be at the computer.

Will try to check on the posts I have missed tomorrow.

In the meantime, God Bless my friends

Kathy....I have been taking Melatonin at bedtime and it is really helping me get to sleep. You can buy it over the counter in different doses. My 8 yr old grandson takes 1mg. I bought the 3 mg and it works good for me. Just a thought. I can't think of much worse than not being able to sleep when you are tired. Lynn

OMG I just finished writing you all, than poof it disappeared! grrr. Here goes again.

It is 72 degrees right now, and I am chilled to the bone, I even have on my mucklucks. The sun feels good it's the cool breese that is brrrrr.. I don't know how you all survive in the cold. I would never come away from the heater,

Cookies, Cakes, chocolate, chips, preety much anything that starts with the letter C, I am completly weak with. This yr I decided to start fresh and allow anything that I could eat a serv of at a time in. Well I had to start a list of the foods that are "NoNO in the home foods for 2012." it is on my sparkpage. I just added Cookies to the list. grrrr.

Noise. Today when we were playing tennis a huge group of crows were yappping. They were so noisy, well a hawk was standing on a crows nest, in the treee and the crows were going crazy until it left. It was so amazing. As far as construction noise, yuck! you might have to find away to drown it out. Or change your TV watching to a further room, etc. good luck!

Yeah on the Bloodwork! Life is good we just have to slow down and watch for the good things! Happy Friday all!

Good Evening Everyone

Brrrrrrrrr its freezing here, i.m so glad we have coal central heating 24, 7, i think i`ll stay in by the fire lol, we are suppose to have a fall of snow tonight, i`m praying that we dont, but Josh cant wait, oh to be a kid again, we wakes up in the morning, the first thing he does is look out the bedroom window too see if it has snowed in the night, and quite disapointed when it hasnt,lol hope it stays that way, i`m a right misery arnt i, i like it on christmas cards though lol.

Michele i hope it doesnt get as cold over there with you, as it is in other parts, espeacialy if you havent got c/heating, keep warm.

I hope you dont have to much noise or mess when they knock down that building next door to you, i dare say your Hubby is right these construction people dont rush their selves do they?.

You are doing great with your swimming, they say that is the best exercise you can do, as it works all parts of the body, good for you.

Marci good luck at not having cookies in the house for the year, that is my down fall also cake, puddings, and biscuits, main meals i can go without (i know i shouldnt) but i cant say no, not to some cake, (naughty but nice) lol.

Ellen hi there, yes i would love too keep in touch, i dont know of any others that are from the UK, so it will be nice, How long have you been with S/P? i have been here for quite a few years now, well i reached my target, then i was away for a while, finding the weight i had lost, and found it, hence i came back again, and again lol, but everyone here are great so i love coming back, then i feel as if i havent been away.

Where too in Suffolk do you live? we live in the Gwent Valley, i asked Hubby how far away you are from us, he says we are about a 4 hour drive maybe more from you, have you always lived there? we share our selves out between here and West Wales, if i could afford it i would move up there all together, as its so nice up there.

Bonnie where are you? hope you have your heating fixed.

Well i`ll say goodnight all hope everyone stays warm
Best wishes

Just a quick check in with everyone - crazy busy day at work - and not a terribly pleasant work day either - but the weather outside my window is awesome - so nice to see blue skies and sunshine! Temps should be rising and get up to upper 40's. I will take that in winter. Later

I've been in class all week, brought my own lunch while others hit the fast food chains. Couldn't work out on Tues or Weds., due to late days, but I kicked it up yesterday at the gym as we got to go early (3pm). Hopefully today is an early day as well so I can make it and keep my schedule going. What's so awesome is that my blood work came back fantastic! Yes indeed... emoticon

Hi Gill, I've just read your chat and see that you live in Wales. I live in Suffolk and would like to keep in touch with you as we are in the minority here in the UK aren't we? Hope you're keeping warm in this freezing weather, I think it's going to get worse before it gets better.
Best wishes Ellen.

Maci I love gs cookies! I could never, ever have them in my house!
Gill, your minus 10 is so cold.! although it was 29 here today, it feels like minus 10--we've no central heating in the house, so every morning we wake up very very cold!
RW another good one! It really made my day!
I did my 3rd time this week swimming. The house/factory next door to us is being torn down after 50 years. Although the construction is supposed to take 7 months, my husband who is a plumber says they usually fall behind. It's going to be a very noisy rest of the year!!

Hi, ALL,
Nice day here in Seattle. Fred and I really enjoyed our walk, which included a brief romp in our neighborhood park. I worked really hard for six hours (I work about six hours a day) from 6:30-12:30. Then home for lunch and the walk and then dinner and soon I'll go to the gym for a spin class. Good day.

Teejay--I think the last 10 pounds are really tough and I do think exercise is key. Good for you doing some even when you didn't really feel excited about it. Hopefully you felt better later.

With sympathies for those of you undergoing dental trauma,
Peg

Good Evening Everyone

Yesterday i wasnt able to check in owing to a very busy day, thought i would catch up today, but i dont know whats up it was another busy day, taking g/kiddies to school, then going food shopping, by the time we finished that it was time to pick the kids up, then had house full of visiters, now i`m typing this inbetween cooking the dinner for the boys, phew, tonight i`m going to just chill and watch tv, hubby can clear everything away lol.

We took the g/kids to feed the ducks up the lakes after school, the poor things were walking on top of ice, it was mostly all frozen, they were all sliding about trying to get where we were for the food, but they wasnt getting anywhere, poor things, they managed in the end lol.

Its been really cold here this last couple of days, they say its going to be minus 10 tonight, everything is freezing up, ughhhhhh

Rw another good one, hope you are getting all sorted with the change over.

Bonnie, Pamela, Marci, Brenda and everyone hope you are all keeping well

Good Morning!

It does cost quite a bit to keep our mouths healthy doesn't it. I go for my 6 month check up in just a few weeks. I know I will be spending some $$$ to. Getting ready to have a crown and bridge done. I waited for the first of the year so my insurance would pay more toward it. What I don't understand is why the dentist works on baby teeth. My grandson has a lot of filled baby teeth with caps.

It's going to be another warm day here. I'm sure enjoying this weather. A little concerned what our summer is going to be like since we have had such a mild winter so far. Of course I'm not able to take advantage of the nice warm temps since I'm stuck in my office all day. I get a little dose of the warmth when I check the mail.

Have a great day!

Hi everybody, great to hear from you all !
I've been busy on the switch over from comcast to verizon- still updating a lot of things.

I love the weather here so far this winter, it's been mild and warm, into the upper 70's.
now for a joke- Doctor delivers bad news.

Two kids were deciding what game to play.

One said, Lets play doctor.

Good idea, said the other. You operate, and Ill sue.

Hello, everyone!!! Loved reading the posts thus far this month. Sorry I've been absent sooo much the last few months. Weight is a major struggle right now. I am trying to resume going to the gym regularly again.

Oldest daughter is getting divorced. He left in October, two months before they would have been married for two years. Daughter seems happier now, though. I spent a long time at AT&T with her last night; her ex cut off her cell phone without warning so she is being added to my plan.

I've been busy studying for my licensure exam an work keeps me hopping too. Sleep issues have improved a lot but here I am, struggling with sleep tonight. Hope to get another hour of sleep soon before getting up for work.

I have truly missed you all think bout you all often, believe it or not.

June-are you running outdoors this winter? I hope to do some while we are having amazingly beautiful and warm days!

Bonnie-hope you stay warm!

Hi to RW, Mel and many others!

Teejay51 - WoW! That really had to make you sit up and take notice. A second opinion is definitely what you need to do. Fortunately for me this group where I went today have been in my life for over 40 years. There are some new people on board, but I trust them totally. Good luck.

I seem to be having problems losing these last 10 lbs. Instead of the scale going down, it's been going up. I've been wondering if it's still the problem with Vitamin D definancy. I'm taking a prescription for it. Nothing has changed as for my eating habits, but exercising hasn't been going too well...not enough energy. I did walk on the treadmill today.

I saw my dentist 6 months ago & he told me everything looked good...no cavities or gum problems. One tooth may need a crown in the future. He also told me he was retiring. 6 months later, I went to a new dentist. With all their fancy dancy gadgets, and poking, they told me that when they get done with me, it will cost me near $7500! Yup, $7500! What do I look like, a money tree? I can't believe my mouth went from good to disaster. I'm going to a different dentist Friday, for a second opinion. All I saw in their eyes was dollar signs. I also am wondering if this Vit D definancy has to do with it. Either that they saw signs floating above "Here's a Sucker for you!"

A brief medical report. Saw my primary yesterday and he was able to zero in on one of the issues. I have what is called Stasis Dermatitis on both of my lower legs (an accumulation of iron in one area on each leg). I have a cream to apply three times a day to that area. As for the other issue he really didn't have an answer, but the time being I am to continue with my walking, use the cream, and keep in touch with him.

Saw the dentist today to have the broken part of the bridge and back molar extracted. Over night I was questioning my decision and so when I met with her today I tried to explain to her that I didn't think it was necessary as I was sure the infection was gone. Well, after some discussion she convinced me otherwise. To make a long story short, we went ahead and fortunately we did. The molar was also cracked and there was infection. Procedure done and I am home and doing just fine.

Going to sign off - going to have some jello and some soup a little later.

Hey sparkies, hope you are all having a great day. Today played 2.5 hrs tennis, feeing tired and lazy. The gkids are here playing around me , i am tv couchpotato sitting. Played awsome today. My partner and I were on fire together. afterwards a few of us went to lunch, shared a panda bear lunch w/a friend. We ordered the white rice to save cals.
Ended up losing 2 pds in Jan. I am gonna call that a big success, because every month we lose is awsome. Happy Weds all. ~Maci~ Glad to hear the injurys are healing too!

Happy February, everyone. Thanks for keeping us in the current month, RW, I really appreciate all you do for us and am sure everyone else does too. emoticon

Bonnie, I am not set up to get alerts from Gmail. I just click on Google Chrome every morning to open my email box. I've played with my Kindle Fire some and am slowly getting it figured out. My next deal is to find out how to make the letters bigger so I can read it easier. I might have to go ask Joice down the hall. It's good that you didn't get a big bill to get your furnace fixed. Labor fees are ridiculous anymore.

It rained over night but the sun is out now. This is supposed to be the last bad weather day today and start warming up tomorrow. I'm tired of the long, dark days, especially living in this tiny apartment with only two windows and having to turn on most of the lights.

I'm glad to hear all the good news from everyone dealing with health issues and surgeries.

Have a great day.

Glad that you are getting the stitches out and will soon be back to exercising. Perhaps the warm weather will continue and you can be outside. emoticon

Good morning team! It's going to be another warm day in Missouri. I'm so happy that Spring is around the corner. I love doing things outside. By Spring I should be able to move right along. Plan on getting that bike out of the garage and fix some tires. Don't understand why the tires are bad. It's a brand new bike and I had issues with the tires last summer and didn't fix them. I love riding with my grandkids. I want to put it to good use this year.

I get my stitches out of my foot tomorrow morning. Three days later I will be able to put my own shoe on and try walking on the heel. I will be so glad when this is all over. I miss exercising so much. I thought about just going to the gym to see my friends I had made there. I'm hoping my doctor will allow me to go back Monday. I can only workout on the bike and elliptical, but that is better than what I'm doing now.

Have a great day!

Hi everyone - thanks for the reminder that there are only 47 days left till Spring. That makes it sound as if it is not far away.

HOPE is not pretending that there's never any sorrow - It's the knowledge that our troubles will be overcome tomorrow. It's the inner strength we call on to sustain us now and then, till our problems lie behind us and we are happy again

I am exhausted just reading your post penguin! NO wonder you call yourself that! brrrr doesn't it get cold swimming this time of yr? Awsome ex. One post is swimming the other is fixing a heater not to freeze. It's a crazy world out there. Today I was out in my lil tennis outfit and people thought i was nuts. I thought it felt great, and even took down the ragtop.
Lost my league match today, our first set was awsome, a tiebrker. but we didn't pull of the winning pt. My thought is though that we were playing line1-A level. and we made them work for the win. Not only were the girls 1/2 our age but had strong, thin, athletic bodys! We did great.

Tomm is the 1st and I am praying that Jan was a losing month for me. Does anyone else keep track month to month? Anyways happy Feb 1st all! goodnight. ~Maci~

Hi everyone. I went swimming this morning. I had to ride my bike for 25 minutes against the wind. I was exhausted before I even got to the pool! but I did it anyhow, & now feel better for it.
Bonnie, it's good that you got your furnace fixed! The labor costs are so expensive, aren't they?!!
I sometimes do not get a notice on my computer, & end up losing the chat thread...
happy wednesday, everyone!

For some reason, I have not gotten any notifications to my gmail account since 1-29-12. Anyone else having a problem?

Will have to catch up on Thurs. Have to get up at 6:00am tomorrow and will probably be a 12 hour day, so must get to bed.

Yesterday I woke up and my furnace was not working. Fortunately it was an easy fix. But I spent the entire day waiting for someone to get here. Had plans with Amy and Debbie so they spent the day here and Debbie went out and got us lunch. Had my little heater from the porch to keep us warm.

The fix for the furnace was $20, but the service charge, was $89. So, $109 later, I have a working furnace. Funny, Just check my checking account before I realized it was broken and my State income tax check had just posted. Guess you get what you need when you need it!

Have a great week my friends.

God Bless
