I wish a happy, healthy and prosperous new year to everyone here. Taking it for granted I am going to lose 10 pounds this year (I don't bother to make that my resolution. It's a given), I am going to check on the thread here at least weekly. You are such good motivators. I always feel better when I read all of your posts. Positive feedback is very important.

I had 5 pieces of candy today. I should hide the box. I don't want to undo all I accomplished this year just because I saw the chocolate on sale at rite aid and couldn't resist it. Wish me luck ignoring the temptation to eat it. Actually, I think I'll put it in the freezer right now while I'm thinking about it.

And again: happy new year to all you lovely people. You are beautiful and never forget it.

Happy New Year to all of you. Enjoy the ringing in of 2017

MICHELE

Glad you are having some nice weather. You certainly deserve it with all of the rainy and cold you have so much of. YAY

Went to breakfast this morning with Trish. She had a lovely surprise for me. A mutual friend from the theater from years ago was there.

She has kept in touch with him, and mentioned me to him and him to me a few days ago, and we both had fond memories. So, he was at breakfast with his 10 year old daughter.

It was so sweet to see him and meet his daughter.

We figured out that it had been about 20 years since we had seen each other. I don't think there were two other people in the restaurant smiing as brightly as we were.

That was such a great surprise.

God Bless my friends.

Dreary and cold here as well. I have been sitting under my "sunlight" bulbs all day.

Going to meet my friend Nancy at Bob Evans for dinner today. Otherwise, just hanging out.

Tomorrow I am going to go to breakfast with Trish, and then she is going back to Florida on the first.

Going to go to Laura and Derek's New Year's Eve party tomorrow night for a bit. It will be nice, only about 15 to 20 people, and there will be a good chair for me to sit in.

In case I don't get back here tomorrow. Have a Happy New Year my friends.

God Bless

Take time to PRAY..It is the greatest power on earth. Take Time to LOVE and BE LOVED..It is a God-given privilege.
Be FRIENDLY, It is the road to happiness.. take time to LAUGH..it is the music of the soul.
Take time to Give it is too short a day to be selfish.. Take time to DO CHARITY..

We are having rain here today as well. The record hi temp for Toledo is 62 degrees on this date, I think it was in the 1880's. We reached 61 today.

Going to get a bit colder with more rain throughout the week.

Had a lovely time at my mom's on Sat and at Amy's with Natalie, Zach and his girlfriend Melissa.

Had rehearsal this afternoon from 1p to 4pm. Tomorrow at 7pm and then off rehearsal until Monday

See you all later.

Stopping in to wish all of you Happy Holidays.

Amy and Natalie came over yesterday and did a marathon cookie baking day. I am exhausted and my back hurts, and they did most of the work. LOL

They are all done with their baking, and I may try to do one more batch if I can find someone to help me next week.

My friend Trish is here from Florida. She is staying with me, and then going on to see her family and friends from here. We went to breakfast on Tuesday am, and now, we have a visit each evening. It is nice.

It supposed to warm up here, a bit better yesterday and today, but by Monday it is supposed to be near 60 degrees. This is crazy weather.

God Bless my friends. Thanks for the good thoughts.

Great job hooking up your computer. Congrats on the weight loss.

MICHELE

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Hope it was a good day, even though you were all so buy, at least you were with your family.

ELIZA

Glad you have a working car. It is very cold here, and still lots of snow on the ground.

Had a party yesterday with Scott and his family. We presented out picks for next years season of plays to the Board of Directors of the theater. Had a nice little visit, then home for Scott to pick me up to take me to his sister's house for our holiday party. Nice time.

These kids are my cousin's kids. She passed about 7 years ago. She and I were very close, so I am close to her children. They are all very good to me.

Scott and his wife and kids gave me a $50 gift card to Macy's.

Today, Amy picked me up to take me to Debbie's holiday party. Just got home. Had a nice time, but my back is very, very sore.

Have a lovely week my friends

Have had a very busy week, and did a lot of sitting at the Dr's office for Tony's surgery.

My back is very sore, and my arms are hurting, so no typing

Wishing you all well.

That was a good idea to listen to the advice. It is good to have an achievable goal.

PATTI

Sometimes, one just needs a bit of a break.

ELIZA

Hope your car is fixed.

God Bless my firends

I went to a site the other day to get a quick formula for finding my BMI. It was a great site, it gave an overall evaluation. The one thing I want to share is that I had put a weight loss of 33 pounds as my goal. They wrote back, "Your weight target is in the right direction but very ambitious. A fast weight loss of 33 pounds could be the initial phase of a yo-yo effect. It may be safer to try 11 pounds first, stabilize on the level of 182 pounds and then set a new target, if this seems sensible."

I really appreciated that advice, so went back to my original information page, and re-set my goals. 11 pounds sounds so much more do-able to me and so I'm not feeling quite so overwhelmed by the journey ahead. Feeling more like, "Yes, I can do this!" And also, 11 pounds off would really make a big difference in my appearance.

Just thought this might help some others of you as well!

Hope you enjoy your new glasses.

Thanks. We had rehearsal tonight. The snow stopped early morning, and the streets are all cleared for the most part.


Ron came and did my driveway etc early this morning.


It is pretty cold, it is very early for this weather. I guess it will be zero degrees on Thursday, and 40 degrees by Sat.

If you live in Ohio, and don't like the weather wait a couple of days LOL

Hope you enjoyed your swim.

Beautiful lights. I keep forgetting to try to get our zoo lights up so you all can see them.

I agree, the cold, snow, damp, all really bother my joints and my back a lot.

Getting older is not for sissies. I can't believe I am 67, but my body feels like about 97. LOL

PATTI

I hope you like your new frames.

Don't know if I mentioned it or not, but I have a brand new pair of glasses at the eye dr. I went to get them in September. They did not work for me. The Dr said that part of it was because instead of using concave lens, they put flat lens in my glasses. I have muscle problems, and they can tell that by the prescription, so it was a dumb thing to do.

However, because I am taking more muscle relaxants than normal, I think that is affecting my vision as well.

I was trying to wait to see what the pain management Dr could do for me, so I didn't have to take the extras, but that didn't work.

I received a letter in the mail yesterday that I have an appointment with the next Pain Management Dr On January 9th, I think. So not as bad as I thought it would be.

Have not heard from the physical therapy dr yet. sigh.

Guess I might as well go back to the eye dr and see if he can get me a better prescription so I can have my new glasses. I thought they were cute, but now I can't even remember what they look like. LOL

We had our play reading committee at 10am this morning. It was snowing when I left to go, and it was a bit more by the time I came home at about 12:15p. The driving was not bad. I do really love my VW Passat. Both of my Jetta's, and now my Passat are very good driving in the snow and ice. I feel safe for the most part. They also have a very accommodating wheel base. I can turn around in some pretty small places.

This was our last meeting, and we have chosen 10 plays, and 6 edgier plays for what we call the "Village after dark". Our regular audience is mostly an older crowd, and they do sometimes have an issue with language, and subject matter, so we do the best we can to pick shows that are not too colorful.

We do 5 season shows a year, these are for the 2017-18 season.

Then we do 2 or 3 shows that we do as readings. The actors use books, and not a lot of props, etc, but then we can explore plays with themes and language that our regular audience would be unhappy with.

These are generally more out of the box kind of shows. We do 2 to 3 of these between the season shows, and are trying to build an audience for the newer stuff. That is a struggle, but we are trying. We generally only do the "after darks" for a couple of nights..

Anyway, we now have to get ready to present them to the Bd of Directors, and then they chose from what we have decided on. We read a LOT of plays. But, it is interesting to read and then discuss with the others. There are 6 of us on the committee. I think I had a three year term, you have to be elected by the board for the committee, so I have one more year left. If it is only two, I suspect they will ask me again, and I think I will probably do it. We are going to lose some members next year, and will be adding new people. Not sure what I will decide to do. Have a few months before we begin again.

I have to prepare to present 2 of the main stage shows, and 1 of the after darks. Then next Sat at the beginning of the board meeting, we will present, and then we are done for awhile.

I am so grateful for having the theater to work at. It is something I can do, and if I am having a tough day, someone else will always go upstairs to turn on the house lights, and up on the stage to turn on the stage lights, and open the back door. Most of the time I can do it, it is about the only exercise I get.

Ok, there I go with the theater ramblings again.

We are to get about 6 to 8 inches of snow before 4am, then some very cold temps, and more snow. Oh winter.

I won't be going anywhere until tomorrow night about 6:30p to pick up my friend Diana. She is in the show.

Then we rehearse on Tues, and Thurs this week at 7pm.

God Bless all and have a lovely week.

BONNIE I do hope that you feel better. I am keeping you in my prayers.

ELIZA i hope that you feel better soon, too. My back tends to hurt a lot more in the cold as well. I don't like summer b/c it's too humid & hot here, but the cold bothers me more now athat I'm getting older!

We are all doing well with following your pattern of saying Good Morning, PATTI

Well, I am still awake, so it is my turn to say Good Morning to all of you today. LOL

I guess I haven't checked in here with the results of my appointment with the pain management Dr on Monday.

Not very good. He says that he cannot help me at all. He is going to send me to a different Dr because he feels I should have a spinal stimulator inserted into my spine.

The other option he suggested was a morphine pump, but my chiropractor says he does not want me to have that done because there is too big of a risk for infection.

So, I am praying for the spinal stimulator to work.

He is also sending me for physical therapy, but I am sure none of this will happen until after the first of the year.

I am pretty disappointed and worried, but I am working on one day at a time, and praying that someone can do something to help me.

The play is going well. I am enjoying the cast and our director. The director is a very long time friend, we went to college together and did theater together there, but we did not reconnect until 1991 when I began doing theater once again.

Holiday parties and events coming up. It is such a busy time of year.

We are having our last play reading committee meeting on Sunday morning at 10am. That is the only time we could find to meet, as we are all working different shows right now.


We will present the plays to the board of directors on the following Saturday they will read them and pick the season for next year. Then we will be done for a few months before we begin reading plays again for the 2017-2018 season.

Have a lovely weekend my friends.

DALE

I am sooooo excited for you. You are right, I love that you are going. I have been to Manhattan quite a few times in my life, because my close cousin, Bob, lived there for a lot of years.

Always had a wonderful time. I have only seen 3 shows on Broadway, but I remember the experience as being so thrilling for me.

"The Wiz". "They're Playing our Song" with Robert Klein and Lucy Arnez, and "Best Little Whorehouse in Texas".

"The Wiz" was amazing and exciting and I loved the music so much.

"They're Playing our Song" was also wonderful. Klein and Arnez surprised me because they were so good. Again, great music.

"Whorehouse" was an experience, but not my favorite. It was a bit too long, and just not as entertaining.

Have seen "The Phantom" and ""The Lion King" in Toronto. Also an Andrew Lloyd Weber, called "Aspects of Love", which was not the best show he has ever written, but it was well performed, and I liked the music. That was fun, because I had gone with a group of theater friends, and one of the guys in my group. knew someone in the show, so we talked after.

Thank you for reminding me of these wonderful experiences. I cherish those times, and don't often think about them.

So excited that you broke out and did it for yourself, didn't wait for Scott. YAY YOU!

Wishing you and your friend a wonderful visit to the "CITY". Enjoy it all, Hope you have great seats and wonderful weather.

Happy Hannukkah, and a very Happy New Year! Let me know how it goes.

I am sure you will enjoy "Front Page". Nathan Lane is one of my favorite actors, and John Goodman has built a pretty successful career on Broadway. I will have to look the show up and see who else is in it. Can't wait to hear about it.

I am having a terrible time with my back once again, sigh, but going to pain management dr tomorrow to see what he may be able to do for me.

I have been working shows last year and this year. Last year, I co produced our musical.

We did a show in November that I also co produced, and assistant stage managed. It was a very successful show, and one of the favorites of my entire time working theater.

We have just begun rehearsing the January show, it is "Angel Street", in the movie, it was called "Gaslight". That is how most people remember it.

We have a good cast, and a good director and I am rehearsal stage managing and assistant producing once again.

I am grateful that I have that, because it is something I can do , and feel very involved.

MICHELE

How was your swim today? Is your weather any better?

ELIZA and PATTI

You two are keeping yourselves busy. Hope you had a good rest today Patti.

We had our family Christmas party yesterday, and it was a very good crowd. We are once again on the cusp of weddings, and babies have been coming for the last couple of years.

I saw some of the younger cousins, it seems at a certain age, they are not as interested in family parties, but when it comes time for weddings and babies, they want to introduce their spouses, or spouses to be and to bring their babies back into the fold of all of the people that love them.
.
It is like everything else, cyclical. I enjoyed seeing so many of them last night.

I have been having a few nights of not great sleep. I did not sleep until very early this morning, but Laura and Derek called me and I got up and went to breakfast with them.

Just woke up about an hour and 1/2 ago from taking a nap.

Have a busy day tomorrow. Pedicure in the morning, first visit to the pain management dr in the afternoon, and a rehearsal tomorrow night at 8:00pm.

I will be wiped out by tomorrow night.

We will have afternoon rehearsals on Tues, Weds and Thurs. Not my favorite time for rehearsals, but we have an actor with some scheduling conflicts, so this will do.

The good thing is I will be home when it gets dark out.

Have a wonderful week my friends.
