It's 19 feels like 10 with a high of 34 for today. We were lucky only got a little ice on the cars but nothing on the roads. Fit quote for today: I learned that if you want to make it bad enough, no matter how bad it is, you can make it.--Gale Sayers Motivational quote for today: Don't let the fear of losing be greater than the excitement of winning.--Robert Kiyoskai Almost all green yesterday just missed floors and active minutes but achieved my steps per hour goal and had 13,207 steps. If all goes well today's workout plan is Legs/Back and no planned cardio. Someone asked how many vitamins I take well I take 6 different ones plus my regular medicine and Iron.

Good morning to my friends ... :)

Had, actually, a really good day yesterday .. Got past my emotional roller coaster, and moved on .. Cleaned out a couple of my "file drawers" .. My main one downstairs; I did good, cuz it was turning into a "catch all".. so I went through and organized my "mom" file, my "cars" file, my bank statements etc etc .. all the important stuff that should be available when needed .. took my craft patterns, etc .. upstairs where I could use them ..

Got upstairs and well.. stuck with my "don't just throw stuff on my desk" .. so I put them away, to find that the drawer that I wanted to put them in were just as jammed .. so started cleaning that drawer .. lol ... Thankfully I got all of my paperwork put away .. :)

I played a bit with my toy .. and got some birds in flight .. :)



and then I can't figure how this one happened .. but I thought it was comical .. :)



If anyone can figure it out .. please let me know .. lol lol .. the only thing is that I can think of, is that he was flitting from one side to the other, and I got his wings "closed" .. lol lol .. but I think it's funny .. :)

This is how I learn .. I take the photos, and then look through them .. that's a thankful thing for digital ... I work from there .. :)

Today -- I'm heading to the office, and happy because they have a "lunch and learn" .. I can partake in the "lunch" part .. :)

Tomorrow I'll be posting from the road .. Hubby and I are taking a "day date road trip" .. and I am SOOO looking forward to it !!!

So -- talk later !!!! and wish everyone a great day !!!!

It's 27 feels like 18 with a high of 28 for today but chances of rain/freezing rain later this evening. Fit quote for today: That some achieve great success, is proof to all that others can achieve it as well.--Abraham Lincoln Motivational quote for today: Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.--Joshua J. Marine Almost all green yesterday just missed floors but achieved my steps per hour goal and had 13,346 steps. Got in a great 5 min row to warm up and Chest/Shoulders and Legs circuit to finish yesterday. Gym rest day today due to getting off at 5PM and I don't like going when it's that busy plus we are supposed to get rain/freezing rain later.

Got a 2 week supply of my regular vitamins until the rest come in so back on those and bought some Every Day Detox tea at GNC and started drinking that yesterday afternoon. Having to take my vitamins slow since there are 8 pills in the package and I can't take them all at once or right after the other.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Yesterday ended up to be an emotional roller coaster but actually helped me get through the day .. I feel better this morning, and more emotionally stable .. emoticon emoticon lol lol

Today I want to attack my file drawer in my TV room .. the good news, is well .. my TV broke last night, so won't be focused on TV instead of sorting through my files .. and

I got my nails done yesterday. They are a pretty coral pink, with little sparkles .. :) I love my nail time, and it's time when I can't do anything else .. until she's done .. it's about an hour of ME time .. :)

Just had fun with my toy .. the bird feeder was massive frenzy of activity .. got a few good shots if I do say so myself .. :)

Hope everyone has a great day .. I'm going to .. :) now's time for breakfast .. :)

Good morning to my friends ...

I figured out what's possibly been going on with me lately ... I'm lazy; but not THIS lazy .. and sometimes .. you know the body/brain go into mutiny, and it takes a few days before "I" know what's going on .. lol ..

I came downstairs and looked at the date on my computer .. yesterday was daddy's birthday .. he would have been 92 years young ..



Happy Birthday Daddy .. :)

Woke up this morning with a headache, and Artie was doing a mega NONsoftshoe on my shoulders .. so I took an aspirin, and thankfully that headache is going away, but hubby is in a mood .. he's like a kid out of school, and well .. driving me bonkers .. doesn't know what to do with himself .. lol ..

I told him I was going to get my nails done, and he said he would go with .. NOPE UHUH AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN ... lol lol lol .. he's not letting me get myself back in sync with my brain/body .. lol lol but I'm trying to hold back from losing it on him .. he's only being silly .. lol lol lol

Have a great day ... I'm going to .. and anyone with any ideas of how to settle hubby down from his "don't know what to do with myself" mood .. I would appreciate it !!!!

It's 25 feels like 18 with a high of 55 for today. Fit quote for today: You can set yourself up to be sick, or you can choose to stay well.--Wayne Dyer Motivational quote for today: When you know what you want, and you want it badly enough, you'll find a way to get it.--Jim Rohn Almost all green yesterday just missed floors and with the switch of trackers and not syncing my Charge3 before removing it my app shows I didn't achieve my steps per hour goal but I did and had 13,546 steps yesterday. Just got the Fit Bit Versa and it seems to track heavier than my Charge3. I noticed that about my friend's Blaze which there's nothing wrong with her charger just broke and instead of getting a new charger she ordered the Versa too. Today's workout plan is Legs and 20 min on stair master or other cardio.

It's 43 feels like 37 with a high of 46 for today but started out in the upper 30's this morning. Fit quote for today: You have to set goals that are almost out of reach. If you set a goal that is attainable without much work or thought, you are stuck with something below your true talent potential.--Steve Garvey Motivational quote for today: The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.--Walt Disney Almost all green yesterday just missed miles, active minutes and calories burned also came up 36 steps shy of achieving my steps per hour goal while sitting in church last night. Had 13,551 steps yesterday. Got my Fit Bit Versa this morning and am charging it and setting it up now. My friend Alicia ordered one from the Fit Bit website and won't have hers until tomorrow or Tuesday but I ordered mine Friday afternoon from the Wal-Mart website and was able to pick it up yesterday but wasn't in town until today.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Had a quiet day myself .. sat on my butt all day ..

We made our root beer .. not sure how it's going to work out .. had to teach hubby how to use a whip .. emoticon He was stirring like he was going to hurt something, and he had to dissolve some stuff .. ?? I really didn't see the yeast activate so not sure if that's going to work .. but could be wrong .. not really happy working with yeast anyway .. and I didn't see the ingredients needed .. sugar (which we used Hummer's sugar), and brown sugar .. I thought I had some, and most likely I do .. but couldn't find it if my life depended on it .. but hubby found some of my sugar free brown sugar 1:1 ratio .. sooo that's what we used .. ???

It was fun, doing something with hubby, but he has alot to learn about using cooking utensils .. lol lol lol ...

After lunch, I sat and sat some more .. never left my couch with the exception of well ..

We had grilled cheese and 'mater soup for dinner, and I challenged hubby to a game of Wii golf .. and I REALLY TRULY FOR REAL WON !!!!!

I got the kitchen cleaned up after leaving the dishes to soak, and the water cool off while we played .. and headed upstairs around 8 .. Once I fell asleep .. I FELL ASLEEP !!! and slept sound until 5 this morning ..

We actually had lightning and thunder last night ..

Not sure if I'm going by mom's today .. I'm watching our little juncos out on the porch, and the wind gusts have actually almost knocked them over .. the one was standing with the wind to his tail, and a gust came around and literally spun him around .. poor little guys .. this is truly 'BIRDS FLY BACKWARD' weather.. I'm watching .. there's actually tornados of snow in our back yard off and on ..

Little Red and Chubby Red are certainly creating a "fun watch" this morning .. Nothing is safe on that patio .. lol lol .. they've chased each other onto the grill, and over the chairs, and over the birdbath, and hiding in the flower pots, pouncing as one or the other come past .. rather comical .. lol ..

I can promise you one thing .. I am staying FAR away from my TV room today .. it's becoming wayyyy tooo easy .. :) gotta change my habit .. the only bad news is I learned now that my game computer seems to work fine (without having the wifi) .. and well -- that calls my name when I go to my playroom to work on my cleaning .. BE STRONG !!!!! emoticon

Mother Nature is really having a PMS moment this weekend !!!! Hope you stay safe, and stay warm ..

Have a great day .. and we'll talk later .. :)

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Hubby surprised me yesterday .. with a suggestion to go to the zoo so I could practice .. Beautiful weather, sunny days, and exercise ..... AND play with my toy .. what more could I ask for !!!!!! I jumped at it .. :)

The tour through the zoo, is in my blog, but my favorite was the Jaguar .. he was very very cooperative !!!! :)





Sally has a swelled head .. I posted some of my pictures on FB, and got suggestions "I should actually contact the zoo that they would probably enjoy using these in their records ...." .. Sally has a swelled head .. and has to turn sideways now to get through the doors .. lol lol ..

I felt soo good last night when I crawled (literally) to bed .. and slept sound until 5 this morning .. :)

This morning, the snow is coming down, and we're staying put .. Hubby found one of his freebees that he had gotten awhile back .. (rebates) .. and we thought we would try it today ..



Making root beer .. :) and I want to clean my coffee maker .. I'm setting it up for 12 cups and I barely get 10 cups .. Don't know where the rest of the water is going to .. but we'll see if I have enough vinegar to clean that today .. :)

IF that runs out of time, I will go up to my playroom ... I'm getting good, but have one big box of pictures that mom gave me when she was cleaning, and I would like to get them into a scrapbook ... something new to learn, but my creative side is having a ball coming back out again, and now that I know what I have in my playroom (PLENTY of papers, and page protectors .. :) and even have something that "I" can make the covers .. :) Hey .. I am good !! :) )

I hope this icky weather that we're getting here in SE Wisconsin (well -- pretty much WISCONSIN) only lasts for today, because I actually WANT to go to mommy's tomorrow .. :) ) ...

So -- Here's hoping you have a great day, and if you must go out and you're in this ick ... please be safe !!!!

Got in a great Legs/Abs circuit today and decided to get on the recumbent bike for a few minutes to cool down. Schedule was published earlier than normal so I know I can possibly get into the gym all 5 days but unsure I want to get into the gym after 5PM a couple of days.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Yesterday was a whirlwind day ... and while I had fun, I'm glad I don't have days like that often .. I would be POOPED !!!! :)

I have to run and drop off some tax papers to mom's tax accountant this morning at 9:30 this morning .. *sigh* ..

I'm wondering what hubby has planned for today .. I told him after I'm done with my errand, I'm open for suggestions, and with the icky weather coming in, I'm going to be stuck in the house again ..

I'm kinda thinking of making up a batch of "groundhog stew" this weekend .. anyone wanna join me ???

Talk later .. and hope you have a great day !! I'm planning on it !! :)

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Had another good day yesterday .. and the dizzies finally fully subsided .. :) Hubby went to Wii Bowling so I had the afternoon to just be me .. :) and watch the weather from inside the house .. lol lol ..

I played with my toy, and discovered ... by surprise .. We have 2 Little Reds .. so now we have Little Red, and Chubby Red .. chubby red has more grey .. caught them just by accident ..lol .. right place right time .. :)



I came downstairs and got a few shots of Chubby Red .. hoping that Little Red would come back .. and I could get a better shot of the 2 .. lol .. but alas .. Little Red stayed on the ground ..

Oh .. Hello !!!???



Umm num num num ...



Whoopsie .. did I drop that ???



I did get about 99% of my laundry done... Still have a load to fold in the dryer, but it's the underclothes and don't have to worry about wrinkles .. lol ..

I got into my playroom, and well -- didn't accomplish much .. I DID finish up one of my 2019 resolutions ..

I've been working on removing all hard thoughts about people I had had problems with in years past .. Holding a grudge takes alot of work, and I wasn't ready to keep holding onto them .. I wrote a letter to my final "apology" .. Don't expect anything from it, but I know "I" did it ... and it's going in today's mail .. I explained, I'm not trying to "reunite", or "expect any reply", but just apologized .. whatever happened happened, and it's for the better of my mental health to clear the air from my side .. When we had a falling out, I was in a dark place in my life, and well .. it happened .. that's all I need to say ..

I know that I have sent out the olive branch, and that's all that's needed for my resolution .. one resolution is done !!! :)

Today is another day to myself ... Hubby is off to the Dells, to get our free money, and I told him I would go with him next week .. (weather behaving) .. and I have a "meeting" with Jimmy .. he called me in to go over this stuff that he needs; and he was smart and didn't go into detail .. (the man does learn fast .. even if he doesn't retain well .. lol lol ) I'm okay with this .. ever since I told him that I get called in .. it's chargable .. lol .. and if I stop in, and the request/question is more than just a few minute answer .. It will be chargable ..

I'm hoping to go in around noonish .. he leaves for the day between 2 and 3 .. (starts early) and this way I don't have to rush .. :)

I told hubby not to plan on me for dinner, because I have my 101 class tonight .. I'M SO EXCITED !!!!! :) So I have to pack up my camera and stuff .. I'm taking it in; and well .. I may just stop and play with it in the in between .... :) Play with it without having to worry about the flash popping up .. and no glass in between us .. Sometimes I have to have about 6 hands .. because the flash (obviously) puts a glare on the photo from the window .. so I have to have one hand to hold down the popup flash, one hand to click the button, and one hand to focus, and one hand to hold the camera steady and one hand .. well -- no don't need that 5th hand, since I made some adjustments to the settings .. but I needed one had to hold a button down, because for some reason without it being held down; the picture clicker button (like my techie terms .. lol) didn't work .. but that's been fixed since I redid the settings, but I can't turn off the flash with the setting that I have .. so need the hand that held that button to hold the flash popup .. (confused yet ... I am .. ??? and I somewhat knew what I was talking about .. lol)

Anyway -- I have class tonight, and hoping to find out what all those buttons are that I had to hold to take a picture, and looking forward to it .. ohhhh wait a minute .. I think I just figured out how to turn off the flash .. ?? DUHHHHH only the most OBVIOUS spot ..lol lol ..

Okay -- anyway .. don't know if you can tell ... but I'm excited about my class tonight .. :)

I feel good this morning, even after a "wake up 1x an hour literally" night sleep .. I'm hoping to dress warm enough to be able to get some fresh air, between leaving the office, and my class .. I don't need to come home for dinner, and will pick something up enroute .. :)

Anyway -- I hope everyone has a great day .. :) and we'll talk later ..

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Had a wonderful day again yesterday ... met hubby downtown after his dentist appointment, and the machines played well .. I didn't play much, but they played, and I exited stage left, before they figured out what they were doing .. lol .. ergo coming home with a little bit more than I started with .. lol ..

Hubby has to have his last wisdom tooth pulled .. he's got a cavity and Carl said it would cost more to put a filling in a worthless tooth .. poor hubby ... :(

On my way to the casino, I took a detour and found the place where the Chair yoga is at .. Very easy to find, and well -- that way I'm not stressed the first day of class .. lol lol .. Nothing worse than going to yoga .... stressed .. lol lol ..

Hubby took me to the buffet for lunch, and I enjoyed every bite, and just sitting and chatting with hubby .. :) Wow .. what a concept !!! lol ..

I came home after we played our "free money" .. (and the machines hadn't figured it out yet .. and got a few more dollars then they gave me) ..

We went separately so I told him I was leaving after we finished, and he wanted to play a bit more .. I just took a quiet ride home, and made a stop at Menards by us .. to just walk around, and pick up a couple of things .. It felt just good to browse, with no rushing to have to get here or there .. :)

I got home and played with my camera some more .. the little junko's are doing so well at being my practice targets .. :)



I made a couple of adjustments after watching some videos and they seem to be working .. :) I learn best by try try try, showme, try try try somemore .. :) The critters are NEVER going to be safe again !!!! MWWWAAAAHAAAHAAAA !!!!!!

I was sooo tired last night, I crawled into bed by 7:30, and don't remember much else .. This morning I woke up with mom's "woosies" ...(I'm well used to dizzy spells) and crawled back into bed for another couple hours .. I feel much better now .. :)

Today .. I am doing laundry, and working in my room, and hopefully staying away from my game computer .. lol lol ..

Hubby is off to his Wii bowling, and then bingo today .. so he's gone until around 3:30ish - 4 ..

Tomorrow I have an appointment with Jimmy .. Yup -- he texted me and asked me to come in so he can talk about the last of this "project I promised him" ... but he was smart and didn't tell me "what" he wanted to talk about .. lol lol .. See .. he learns .. lol lol

Then tomorrow night is my Nikon 101 class .. I'm looking forward to seeing that .. and tonight I find out if I am going to sign up for the "wilderness" class .. :)

So -- off to laundry .. :) Having a later start this morning .. but feel better since I slept for an extra couple hours .. :)

Have a great day all !!! I'm going to !!!!!

Today's workout plan is 20 min on Stair Master or other cardio then Legs/Back and Legs circuit to finish up.

My toy didn't work last night .. but worked this morning .. I watched some videos, and I think it doesn't work with low light (sunset / dusk) .. This morning it works .. and it will take some playtime practice, but I know I'll get it .. and I LOVE it !!! :)

Had a wonderful day with mom yesterday and I was SOOOOOO proud of how well she did... she even had enough energy to help me put her "groceries/purchases" away when we got home .. That was a long day for her, and she had so much fun !!! and heck -- so did I .. :)

Today I'm meeting hubby downtown after his dentist appointment for our (almost) free lunch .. :) Tomorrow will be soon enough for spending the day at home (especially since they are talking more snow .. *sigh* .. )

Talk later, and hope everyone has a great day .. :)

Have a great day and we'll talk later .. :)

It's 27 feels like 16 with a high of 36 and chance of wintry mix this afternoon. Fit quote for today: Happiness is not a state to arrive at, but a manner of traveling.--Margaret Lee Runbeck Motivational quote for today: With each new day comes new strength and new thoughts. Almost all green yesterday just missed floors, miles and active minutes but did achieve my steps per hour goal and had 13,489 steps. Workout plan for today is 5 min row to warm up then Chest/Shoulders and finish with Legs Circuit.

It's 18 feels like 7 with a high of 32 for today. Fit quote for today: If you push your limits, you will find them. It will hurt.--Roland Fisher Motivational quote for today: I CAN is more important that IQ.--Bill Purkey Almost all green yesterday missed floors, miles and active minutes. Also came up 20 steps shy of achieving my steps per hour goal yesterday as I was at work and was freezing. Had 13,187 steps for the day. Today's workout plan is Legs and 20 min on stair master or other cardio. Scale is down 4.4# from last week think it's because I wasn't feeling well on Saturday and didn't eat much and ate lite yesterday so I didn't get sick again.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Well -- like I said .. it was a pretty icky day yesterday .. I spent the day in my room .. and well -- started all of my computers .. there is just one tablet that is being a pill .. but it was a pill when it was used .. lol .. I now have Windows 98, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 10 .. lol lol .. I'm surprised I didn't find a Windows 3.0 .. lol .. lol lol

But the Vista was the one that lost it's Wifi board, and have since loaded up all my games .. and well -- that one caught my eye, and well -- that's where my progress ceased .. :) I sat and played games (well -- I had to make sure it was working right .. lol) until my butt was square .. lol ..

I came downstairs and played a round of golf with hubby .. and that was the consistancy of my day .. :)

Oh -- I did sign up for a chair yoga class, that starts on Uly's birthday (3/21) and goes for 5 weeks .. :) YAY !!!!

Thursday is my camera class, and hoping that my lens adapter is in by then .. because I'm picking it up there .. :)

Yup -- I'm starting to get "retired" .. now if the office complies .. I will be even MORE happy !!!

Today is spending the day with mom .. taking her to the dentist for her cleaning, and then we're going to lunch, and I offered to take her to the Pig for some shopping .. we'll see what kind of energy she has .. :)

I pick her up today at 10:30ish .. her appointment is at noon .. :)

Here's wishing everyone a great day ... and we'll talk later .. I'm looking forward to a fun and busy day .. :)

Good morning to my friends ... :)

Think I'm going to call mom and stay home today .. She had a busy day with Brother, and SIL spending the day yesterday, and tomorrow she has a busy day with her dentist appointment, and I'll be spending the day with her ... after her appointment we're thinking of going to lunch, and I'll offer to take her to the grocery if she needs to pick anything up to take her for a few days .. (according to hubby, she shouldn't with as much as she bought last time .. lol) and after that my guess is she'll be pretty well pooped ..

So -- I think I'm going to hunker down today, as we're getting more snow .. SURPRISE !!!!! lol

I'll probably work up in my playroom .. my goal is not to plunk myself down in front of the TV, and veg for the day ..

I'm practicing being retired .. :)

I have my first camera class on Thursday this week; and I just wrote the check for a session of Chair Yoga (community class) .. for 5 weeks starting 3/21 .. (Uly's birthday !!! :) )

If that works, than I will switch to beginning yoga in Sussex, because that is on Wednesdays, and hubby is busy that day to begin with with Wii Bowling .. :) but for now .. we'll tray the chair yoga ..

I want to sign up for another class on Feb 27th .. Camera class for wilderness photography .. :) It's another 1 night class, but I want to see what I feel like after the class on the 21st .. If I don't feel like I got my $$ worth; it would be silly to sign up for the 2nd class .. No matter what if I walk away with at least ONE thing .. I will have gotten my money's worth .. (daddy's rule) .. but I'm excited because I'm actually PRACATICING being retired again .. :)

Keep your fingers crossed it continues .. :) I know there's a special place in heaven for me, for all that I give in with .. lol lol lol ..

Today is play in my playroom, play golf with happy hubby, and just play around the house ..:)

Hope everyone has a great day, and if you go out .. be safe .. :)

Good morning to my friends ... :)

I'm heading back to my happy place . .and feeling pretty good ...

I still feel like a mack truck rolled over me, and then backed up to hit the spots it missed, but took a couple of aspirin, and am starting to feel better .. Just stress .. that's all .. I'm glad I went in yesterday instead of waiting until next Tuesday like I planned to originally .. or by then I would have been a major panic meltdown .. :)

Today -- hubby is heading out to run some errands, and I'm going upstairs to work on my playroom .. We'll meet at lunch .. for what .. not sure, but we'll give it a try .. :)

I'm back into my happy place, and feeling pretty good with the exception of the ouchies .. but took a couple of aspirin to handle that .. with the help of Mel A Tonin last night, I slept better .. not the best, but better .. so happy about that .. Im looking forward to a quiet weekend ahead ..

Hope everyone has a great day, and I'll do the same .. talk later !! PROMISE !!!!

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Yesterday was a wonderful day !!! My happy came back .. for the time being .. lol ..

TD had a fun birthday party, and Gramma and Grampa Teddy oversaw it, while hubby and I were out .. :) (yes .. I have a VERY vivid imagination .. you don't stop having fun as you grow old, you grow old when you stop having fun !!! :) )



By the time we came home, the party games were done, and they were ready for birthday cake .. :)



They enjoyed the hats and balloons .. :)



They must have had a good time, cuz they are all sleeping the fun off .. lol lol .. I told Uly I was really proud of him, for taking second seat yesterday .. we've been working on him that he doesn't have to be the main focus in everything .. and has to take back seat sometimes .. He did well .. and I told him he was proud of him .. :)

The casino was NOT good to me, but spending the day with hubby was sooo worth it !!! :)

Had a HORRIBLE night sleep with some sweat pouring, heart pounding nightmares .. They don't come often, but holy smokes when they come .. they come hard .. I know dreams are symbolisms .. but if someone keeps coming at me with a butcher knife; I'm going to run and run fast .. *sigh* .. so guess what I was doing all night long until finally I woke up .. I would be interested to know what the symbolism is behind that, and whatever it is, it never comes back .. lol lol

Today -- hubby is in the Dells .. I had my fill of casino again yesterday .. plus; I have my meeting with Jimmy today .. I don't know how I'm going to get the information that I need, and the inventory project is wayyy too extensive to get the information he needs .. If they would have listened to me 5-10 years ago .. when I was telling them what should be done ... it would be fine .. but nope .. didn't happen, and now here I am holding the ball .. with nobody to play with .. Yes -- I'm upset .. but will hold my temper (do NOT want that to come out) while I talk with Jimmy today ..

Soo -- I had a wonderful day yesterday, TD's birthday; Valentines day; and challenged hubby to a game of Wii Golf .. and well -- he made comment that I'm actually giving him a run for his money .. lol lol .. I was really proud of my game until the last hole .. Too much wind, and too many water hazards ... need I say more .. lol lol ..

Have a wonderful day !!! I'm going to bite my tongue and have one myself .. the sun is out, and that's a plus .. lol lol ..

Good morning to ny friends.

Road tripnto Green Bay this morning ...Just the chance to spend time with hubby. Is worrh it. .


Had a wonderful day yesterday .... went to Wii Bowling with hubby and laughed so much ... theres a guy on their team that really strerches ones patience, but seemsnto habe a good heart and is absolutely HYSTERICAL....lol I laughed so hard that I cried ..

Afterward we went for a burger at BK ... and then I dropped off hubby at the Jeep Hospital, and the happy news is ...it took a bit of a while, but the Jeep is back home abd we're testing him today....

I went home and just rested a bit and all of a sudden my phone rings, and its Jimmy ... "you still have to help me with 'this and that' " ... Henread whatbit was he needed and my brain froze ... I told him I could get him his reports, but for the other stuff ... turnover and percentages...I didnt have a clue .. The good news is I finished 2019 entries ... and sent a note to Kim that she can send out the January financials when she's ready .. I was done... and I did a Google search as a reminder how to do an inventory turnover formula ... and total shouldnt be bad, but individual parts is not going to be possible .

I hung up from him and all my happy was drained right out of me. ...Originally I scheduled next Tuesday to go in, but thought ... this would stick in my head until then and it would mean lack of sleep, and missing my happy .... so I texted him that I would be in tomorrow and we could talk about this.

But for now .. Im going to enjoy my day with hubby ....have a wonderful Valentines day .... emoticon

It's 50 feels like 45 with a high of 61 for today but the Spring like temps won't stick around back to the upper 20's and 30's the rest of the week and into next week. Fit quote for today: Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in muscles.--Alex Karras Motivational quote for today: Life will only change when you become more committed to your dreams than you are to your comfort zone. Almost all green just missed floors and miles but achieved my steps per hour goal and had 13,348 steps yesterday. Work late today so no gym workout and the weather is supposed to possibly be bad tomorrow so no gym workout then either.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

It was a quiet day around the Sally household yesterday .. I just putzed around, looking through the quilting magazines that Ceile (mom's friend) sent home for me .. and pulled out sewing tips and interesting patterns .. and I did some laundry !!!

I challenged hubby to a game of Wii Golf, and I think I'm starting to give him a run for his money .. the score was actually 0 to -1 .. I had the 0 .. YAY ME !!!! but I told him that 0 is still higher than -1 .. so I still win !!! lol lol .. I know this is going to backfire on me sooner or later .. lol lol ..

I spent 1 1/2 hours on the server at work .. and got a number of pages from the report done .. so I'm happy ..

Today -- hubby wants me to take him to Wii Bowling and hoping to go and pick up his Jeep afterwards .. Bob and Renee can drive him; because they live right in the area .. I sooo hope his Jeep is ready and we can put this chapter behind us .. *sigh* ..

Okay -- gotta get myself together so when he's ready to go .. I'm ready .. He's alittle bit high strung this morning .. he doesn't do good being cabin bound .. lol one of our MAJOR differences .. lol .. He's out snowblowing our drive and the neighbor's drive (who's husband is very sick) .

I hear him heading back .. Talk later!!!! Promise !!!

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Went to mom's yesterday, and Dr Sally had to come out .. but we got rid of her woozinesses ... (story in my blog .. not a super day over by mom's yesterday .. *sigh* but I think I figured out the problem)

Thursday is TD's first birthday .. I need to figure out how we'll celebrate .. I know he wants a party .. lol

Today is my degreying, and then going in for about an hour to get 2018 done and out of my hair .. as for 2019 .. well --that's not going to happen for this week, with this weather coming in, or else I'll do it from home .. but the screen is small .. we'll see ..

Hope everyone is doing good, and be safe .. southern Wisconsin is supposed to get hit with slop in the next few days ..

Have to get myself some breakfast .... so talk later .. :)

Goood morning to my friends .. :)

I feel sooo good this morning, and had such a wonderful night sleep ..

I have about 1/2 hour (which I'll do tomorrow because of the weather coming in, and I want to finish this part since I have deadline for 2018 part) .. left to finish 2018 .. WOOHOO !!! (my excitement has settled down again .. lol)

2019 stock purchase entries I can do anytime, especially after thinking on the way home .. I can enter them back door, without disturbing what Ben does from here on .. and that should take maybe 2 workdays at the most .. WOOHOO !!! but the time pressure is off and I don't have to worry about the weather .. :)

I have come to the conclusion that "guidelines" are going to be in line now ... .It's officially been 6 months since my original retirement. I am going to create a letter to Leonard and Jimmy that from here on .. IF I happen to stop in for a visit, and there's questions that can be answered, or if it's a simple yes or no that can be answered via text .. is one thing .. but if I'm called in for whatever reason .. there will be a charge .. If I put it in writing .. it's official, and well -- I need for my sanity to put my foot down .. unfortunately ... emoticon

But I'm beside myself with excitement .. that I can be re-retired !!!!

Today, I am making hubby up a batch of chip dip .. something he enjoys and is easy enough for me to do .. especially when I'm not time pressured .. I will be heading over to mom's this afternoon.

Tomorrow .. I get my degreying !!! WOOHOO !!! Looking forward to a pampering session .. and then off to the office, to finish up that 1/2 hour worth of "making pretty" and being FINISHED with 2018 .. and then I don't have to worry about the weather coming in throughout the week .. :)

I am in a very very happy place, and have things going on that give me something to look forward to .. My camera 1 night classes, and just having fun with my "toy" .. Now that I've played with it abit more, it's time for me to learn about the different controls .. and enjoy my toy even more .. :)

I still continue to clean my playroom .. :)



I'm fighting HARD not to get distracted by all the fun stuff I'm finding !!!!! Soon .. I will be able to start playing again .. and hopefully remember all the fun stuff I'm finding .. lol lol ..

Life is good, and getting better and better each day !!!! I wish you a wonderful day .. I'm going to .. and talk later !!!!!

It's 30 feels like 25 with a high of 39 for today. Fit quote for today: Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.--Dale Carnegie Motivational quote for today: The longer you're not taking action the more money you're losing,--Carrie Wilkerson Almost all green but missed floors and active minutes but had 15,270 steps. Came up 13 steps shy sitting in church last night of achieving my steps per hour goal. Plan is to get into the gym 4 days this week but all 5 workouts might do Wed and Thurs workouts on Wed morning or get Thurs in modified here at home not sure yet. Today is day 7 of my 10 day NO candy challenge and have done well so far.

Good morning to my friends .. .:)

I am in a super happy place .. I'm seeing the end of my "project" yet once again .. and I'm excited about that !!!!

I signed up for a class on learning my camera .. and I'm excited .. IF the class is good, I'll sign up for another one on Wildlife photography a week or so later .. so I'm excited about that !!!

Hubby's car needed AAA yesterday again .. *sigh* .. I wonder if there is such a thing as "low temperature battery" .. ??? because he doesn't have one .. he wasn't happy, and when I suggested that he took it back again, his reply was "wouldn't make a difference" .. *sigh* .. I knew to just leave it as it was ..

I'm going into the office today to start on my last string of December .. I did a preliminary check last night, and found that everything is looking hunky dorey .. :) the only frustrating thing is it's not that far off from the original $$ amount .. this was not really needed (unless yesterday's entry made a bigger difference than I'm thinking ..

Sooo -- life is going my way .. I'm close to REretiring .. and I think I'm more excited about that then I was the first time around .. lol lol lol ..

That's my story for today !!! I hope everyone has a great day !!! And we'll talk again later !!!! :)

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Mac ... Good going on the "no candy challenge" .. that would be difficult for me .. but sounds interesting .. it appears to be only 10 days worth .. I thought I couldn't do the "no ice cream on weekdays" self challenge either .. and I have .. :) Little things DO mean alot !!!!

White ... I put some information on your blog for dealing with those days that create the non-ability to get up and move around and swells the ankles.. Concentrate on drinking more water, and if you can find something to put under your desk to put your feet up on .. that helps as well .. What a wonderful hubby to rub in lotion .. and massage .. :)

Had another lazy day yesterday, but it was a fun day, and well -- a lazy day .. lol .. I challenged hubby to a game of Wii Golf .. I think I won much to his arguement, but it was +12 (me) to -3 (him) .. Now in my eyes +12 is higher than -3 so I must have won .. Huh??? emoticon emoticon

Surprisingly my eating was good yesterday .. and my scale is reflecting it this morning . I spent the day working on stopping hurting . .I think I dug back into my PT exercises with too much exuberance .. lol



My hurt this morning is exercise hurt ... kinda that dull thud .. instead of the sharp hurt like it was .. I looked at my notebook, and well .. with everything going on the last few months, I got put on the back burner, and hadn't done my exercise for the last month .. and jumped right back in where I left off .. lol ..

I also worked on my plantar faciaitis stretches and golf ball massages yesterday .. and it actually feels good today .. so I think I may be in the right direction with that .. I looked up on line "PT for plantar faciaitis" and the videos I saw showed me that I was remembering properly what the "old" Dr B taught me .. so we'll work on that for a bit and see if that improves my problem there .. before going to the "new" Dr B .. lol ..

So it was a productive day .. I played with my camera; and looked at prices for bigger telephoto lenses .. and well .. I think I'm going to be happy with the one I have ... EEEK on the prices .. lol lol .. Hubby brought down his flyer from the zoo pass membership, and there's a 1 day class in there in the end of July .. for learning how to take photos .. :) I may sign up for that .. BUT .. (there's always a BUT) .. I have to be able to walk for 2 hour tour .. so I have my work cut out for me .. I told hubby that once things settle down, I do plan on taking a class, but the classes I looked at were 5-6 weeks long .. and I want to do it without having to worry about this or that going on as well ..

I see my retirement coming up soon again .. and I feel excited .. almost as much as the first time around .. lol lol ..

Today I'm not going in until later this afternoon .. I pulled out some chicken from the freezer and plan on cooking them up this morning .. :) Hubby is gone on one of his "free money runs" .. :) so I pretty much have a good chunk of the day to myself .. :)

Things are going good for me right now, and I'm just swimming in the happy !!!! I hope everyone has the same going on for them ... :)

Have a great day !!! I'm going to !!!

It's 9 with a high of 27 for today. The snow/sleet mix is gone but we still have ice on the roads and cars. Not driving to work today but planned on missing my gym workout anyways since I get off at 6PM and that's too late to go workout. Maybe Monday I can get back to my regular gym schedule.

Well February is going by really fast for me. We have heavy client traffic right now. On Tuesday, I had unlocked the door and sat at my desk to do little incidental things I do before I actually open. Well one of my long time clients came in and asked if I could take care of him. I said sure so got started with him At that point it was actually time for me to start and the lobby was filling up with clients. This was the whole day from 9 to 7 that day. Again Wednesday was a repeat. Today, I thought I would get some of my behind the scene work done and as soon as I started it, I had clients coming in one after another until I clocked out at 5. As I was leaving one of my regular came up to me and asked me when I would be back. Told him in the morning so he advised he would come back then Wow, I know it will get slow in a couple of weeks, but I need a short break during the day, but not happening.

My ankles are swelling because I am not able to get up and walk around enough in the last couple of days. I came home and fixed a nice dinner of halibut, sauted mushrooms and spinach and a side of yellow rice Hubby remarked about my ankles being swollen. He told me to sit down and he cleaned up the kitchen He then came in and slowly massaged my ankles and legs with some deep soothing lotion. They do feel better for now and when I go to bed I am going to raise the food of my bed so they will be elevated while I sleep

Keep on track

Good morning to my friends .. :)


Had a good day yesterday all things concerned ..

Mom's dentist appointment went well, and now that we have her set up .. they have a new patient .. She reallllllly liked Dr P... :) and she got one of my favorite dental assistants as well .. :) All you heard was laughing back in that room .. Yup -- mom was in her form .. lol lol lol ..

She didn't drop a filling .. it was her partial that was thrown off kilter with her eating the sticky, chewy Bit O Honey .. :)

Mom's next appointment is Monday the 18th, and we already have plans to go to lunch afterward .. :) I'm looking forward to it !!!

Afterwards we stopped at Applebees on the way home for lunch .. and had a girlie giggly lunch .. lol lol .. I dropped her off at home, and headed to the office . .getting there just before 3 .. only for hubby to text me that the storm was coming in early .. around 6ish .. sooo that cut my workday short .. *sigh* but I got my paperwork set up, and ready to go through .. HOPING tomorrow night, and Saturday .. I'm seeing that proverbial light .. and my deadline for December is getting closer ..

Today however, I ain't a-leavin' ... lol .. our back patio is am ice rink .. and it's still raining .. sooooooo guess who's staying home today ..I'm thinking of putzing cleaning in my playroom ..

Hope everyone has a great day, and stay safe if you have icky weather .. !!! I hope you do !!!!

Good morning ..

It has been asked of me for information on my back exercises ... I answered the person that asked me in private, but thought that would be a good chat starter ... so I'm posting parts of my reply here as well .. :)

**********

Here are a couple of websites ... one explains the "not good" exercises for the core .. MY challenge is my core .. my back pretty much comes from my belly and lack of core muscles . lol as well as my over exuberance at the gym...

Core exercises that can give you back pain ..
www.trainingcor.com/20-core-
exercises-
giving-back-pain/


And this is the list of exercises that PT has basically given me .. and when I do them I focus on my ab and glut muscles; and try not to use my back to do the exercises .... which seems to have been my challenge in the past ..

10 core exercises for lower back
www.self.com/gallery/core-ex
ercises-fo
r-lower-back-pain-relief


*******

Hope the links work .. and hope everyone has a great day !!!!!

It's 19 feels like 9 with a high of 23 for today.

Bailey Almost all green but missed floors and active minutes but did achieve my steps per hour goal and had 15,273 steps yesterday. Weather and roads still iffy since most if not all local schools have cancelled for today so not driving to work which means no gym workout yet again. May just scrap this week and start fresh on Monday. Today is day 4 of 10 on my No candy challenge and have done really well so far.

Good evening!!!! 

Well ... Mother Nature messed up my plans again... hubby heard the rain problem was supposed to come in by 6 instead of after midnight like they said this morning ...so I got myself set up with my reports, and came home. I will try Friday night and Saturday, and Im close enough to seeing December and then I think I can work during normal hours to enter the miscellaneous stuff.... 

Mom's dentist appointment went well, and Dr P has a happy new patient...lol Her problem was NOT a popped filling from her Bit OHoney, but it must have moved her partial and made it feel like a filling. Dr P said all her fillings are super secure... 

Now that she's going to be his patient, she is signed up for a cleaning on the 18th... 

After we were done, we stopped at Applebees on the way home and had a fun yummy lunch... 

So all in all, even with Mother Nature misbehaving... I had a good day ... Im looking at my inconvenience of not being able to stay tonight as a blessing... Im tired, and can relax this evening instead.... 

Hope your days were good....

It's 28 feels more like 19 with a high of 36 for today and wet/icy roads. Glad I'm off today so I don't have to drive in it this morning but if roads are better later I'll get my workout in. Fit quote for today: In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life. It goes on.--Robert Frost Motivational quote for today: Don't ever wrestle with a pig, You'll both get dirty, but the pig will enjoy it.--Cale Yarborough (for those that don't know he was a driver in the NASCAR cup series in the 70's). Almost all green just missed floors, miles and active minutes since I had to charge my tracker it was at 44% last night. Achieved my steps per hour goal and had 13,047 steps. Today is day 3 of my 10 day NO candy challenge and I've done well so far.

Sally--Can't wait to read about your day always enjoy reading what you do and how your mom is doing.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

We ended up having a lazy day .. Mother Nature helped me yesterday by rolling in the thick fog when hubby came home from his Wii Bowling .. HE came in and made the suggestion that we "didn't have to go" . ... I wanted to jump up and down with excitement .. but controlled myself .. :)

Instead he offered Cousin's subs for lunch, which he ran for, and I got to make up the chili that I was going to do this morning .. so that was my afternoon .. the rest was sitting on my bumm .. For some reason when my day "is planned" .. and it gets goofed up .. I have so many things "to do" .. I don't know where to start, and end up plopping for the rest of the day .. *sigh*

I FINALLY got through to my dentist .. mom's initial appointment is tomorrow morning .. but I had to deal with "D" .. the office manager .. I like her, but don't like her .. she reminds me of "Eddie Haskell" in the Beaver .. and well -- there's just so much that I trust in her ... I was holding it together that it was the 3rd call I had to make before actually talking to someone !!! and then she'd ask questions, and I could only get a few words out, before she'd ask the next question .. With mom's teeth as bad as they are .. I'm going to have to explain to mom on the way .. "D" is nice, but don't let her get involved in the conversation with Dr P .. when I was talking to him about my surgery a few years ago, she got me so upset, and it turned out to be nothing in comparison .. I don't need her to be getting mom into a tizzy ..

With that I was nursing one of those headaches .. so kinda glad we didn't go out .. I personally it was just "stress drop" when he came home and announced that we didn't have to go .. :)

So .. Mom's appointment is tomorrow morning .. at 11:10 .. at least so the doctor can see what he's working with .. and we'll sign paperwork for her to get her files transferred (even though the place her files were sent to, is NOT good to getting them, nor is it good to go to ... per "D") .. All I could do was roll my eyes .. and try and stick to the matter at hand ..

*frustration ensues* ...

BUT ......

Sitting on my bumm yesterday I realized .. my back has been spazzing out more and more again .. and realized I have not been doing my PT exercises for over a month .. How come when things go amuck, ME is the last thing on my to do list .. ?? I decided this morning to try and start focusing on that again .. I felt good when I was doing it, and well .. between work in December, and mom in January .. and then mom started feeling better, and work stepped in again .. ME got pushed onto the back burner .. and my back has been spazzing more and more .. as of this morning .. it's time to give myself some "ME" time ..

I'm hoping for the weather to behave itself .. because I would like to go to the mall and make myself an appointment for degreying .. and then meet up with friends for dinner.. :) I'm hoping the weather is going to stay south like they are talking .. and we're going to be in the donut hole .. :) I pray that anyone that gets hit with the sleet and rain and snow, that they stay safe .. :)

Again .. today is a day of rebooting my brain.. enough to start thinking that "I" am worth taking care of ... So -- after I finish breakfast, I'm going to head up to my playroom, and work in there for a bit today, this afternoon head for the mall .. and maybe (if my feet can handle it) get some stepping in, and then dinner with my friends (weather permitting) ..

Wishing everyone a great day, and talk later!!! PROMISE !!!! :)

It's 28 feels like 19 with a high of 43 for today much cooler start than yesterday. Fit quote for today: You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.--Margaret Thatcher Motivational quote for today: The road to success and the road to failure are almost exactly the same.--Colin R. Davis Almost all green on Fit Bit Charge3 just missed floors but did achieve my steps per hour goal and had 15,277 steps. Got in a great Legs and 20 min row instead of stair master since not sure back could handle it. Today's workout plan is 5 min row to warm up and Chest/Shoulders and to finish with a legs circuit.

It's 36 feels like 28 now but was in the 50's this morning and cooled off real quick.

Got in a great Legs and 20 min cardio workout this evening. All of my workouts are now in my app so I'm ready to go for the month.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

I thought I posted last night .. guess it must have been one of my naps .. lol lol ..

Mom's phone was just that she had to turn it on first .. I walked her through the steps yesterday (again) and made HER do the work .. lol .. all the way to dialing her home phone, and making a call .. I know I learn the best that way and she is the same way .. Last time the sales rep just started it up, and never showed her how to use it .. so now it will stick again for a few months .. lol .. :) Bless her heart .. she tries hard .. :)

We had a fun afternoon, talking and puzzling .. and talking some more. . :)

Today I am getting my nails done while hubby is at his "wii bowling", and then we're heading up north for a ride, (and free stuff) .. I told him I don't want to play; and he agrees .. so we get back home before dark .. I'm not looking forward to 5ish hours of ride .. but it's a chance to spend some time with hubby, and well -- since we've been pretty much going in separate directions again, and his car is starting on a regular basis again .. lol .. I am looking forward to it .. :)

Talk later .. and hope you have a great day !!!!!

Bella ... I am blonde by nature as well .. but my doft blonde waves and soft curls are being invaded like mad scientist corkscrew greys at the temples and oh my goodness ...coloring it settles down that frantic crazy curl ... lol lol

Moms phone was just that it was turned off ... so I walked her thru the steps of turning it on and making a call. .. its a flip phone, and I told her that she could just leave it on and charge it and remember to put it in her purse when she leaves, or leave it off and I would charge it for her every couple of weeks....She's going on 92, and letting her do something helps it sink in (after 3 or 4 times ....lol ) instead of just explaining to her ...lol

It's 64 feels like 63 with a high of 64 for today but started out in the 50's this morning. Fit quote for today: Never let the fear of striking out get in your way.--Babe Ruth Motivational quote for today: A good friend is like a four-leaf clover; hard to find and lucky to have. Almost all green yesterday just missed floors and active minutes. Came up 49 steps shy of achieving my steps per hour goal while sitting in church last night. Had 16,645 steps for the day. Unsure of the workout plan for tomorrow since my new Monday workout isn't in the app but will wait until tomorrow morning and check again.

Princess - I let my hair grow out gray about 5 years ago and I loved the freedom of not coloring it. When I straightened my hair it looked pretty but when I let it go naturally curly, I looked like a crazy old woman emoticon My hair is a very light blonde now so I don't have to color it as often (the light blonde helps the gray roots to be less obvious) and that's something.

Good luck with your Mom's phone. Bella

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Whiteangel .. that sounded like a wonderful day yesterday .. and best wishes to your excitement for a new month, not to mention the theater tickets .. :) WONDERFUL !!!!

Ohoh .. I'm falling into a writers block mode .. my blog was just blah blah blah blah this morning .. lotsa woohoo's but more blah blah blah .. lol lol lol

Now that I've entertained you .. I've been doing alot of fighting with myself .. I'm starting to get the urge for another princess .. and can't seem to turn it off .. It's been since September 2017 ... but I haven't really felt the freedom of retirement yet ?? I still have in the back of my mind when I'm out with hubby .. I don't have to get home in between stops .. ?? for all the pro's I've come up with ... I've found a con .. so I keep telling myself .. it's not time yet .. however, have been checking out the North Central Maltese rescue quite often .. Hubby has said that he wants a puppy .. I told him that I would check out a rescue .. ?? so we haven't gotten through that either .. ?? the internal fight continues .. emoticon

This afternoon will be time with mom .. she told hubby yesterday that her cellphone isn't working again .. Today is going to be a lesson on "how to turn on your cellphone" .. *sigh* .. but looking at it realistically .. AT LEAST WE GOT HER TO CARRY IT !!!!

I also have to remember to get the information for mom's old dentist so when my dentist calls me I can't really tell them to call mom for the information because mom won't answer the phone if its a number she doesn't know .. so I have to remember to get the information from her today .. :)

BUT I AM looking forward to going to see her .. :)

On the way I'm stopping to pick up the making for chili .. and Tuesday I'll make up a batch .. I left a note for Jimmy that I won't be in until Wednesday ... and tomorrow I have plans to get my nails cleaned up in the morning, and hubby wants to go up north for "a sachel" .. (one of my free gifts of this month) .. I try to keep telling him that we are trying to REDUCE clutter .. but that only sinks in for a while .. lol lol lol ..

I also want to make an appointment to have my hair degreyed .. and hope to stop in there this week to make that appointment .. :) Now that I'll have days to myself for a bit .. I can plan these things again .. :)

So -- after my WOOHOO Day yesterday .. I feel pretty good today .. a good night sleep, and a little meloncholy .. but good .. :)

Hope everyone has a great day, and we'll talk later.. If you are a Superbowl watcher .. I hope your team wins !!!! :)

Hmmm I guess I didn't have writers block .. lol lol lol

A great day for Hubby and I. We took Miss Coco to the groomers for a bath and pampering while we drove to St Augustine to go to the winery and pick up some wine that Hubby likes while we had a coupon. Saved a lot on the purchase. We had a great time. Stopped at a local place and had lunch I love the Mauroican chowder. Hubby and I were singing along with the radio on our way home. We picked up Miss coco and then stopped to see a friend.

I am excited about the new month, looking forward to new things we are going to incorporate into our lives. I got tickets to the local theater for mid February I understand they have a really good group there. We are planning on going to a exhibition on the 16th.

Keep on track

It's 55 feels like 52 with a high of 57 for today but started out in the upper 40's this morning.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Ground hog didn't see his shadow .. EARLY SPRING !!!! and if that doesn't work .. 47 days till spring !!!! lol lol lol .. Yup -- I'm ready .. lol

Yesterday was a good day, aside from overeating at lunch . .*urp* .. I got alot done at work, and I'm not pushing myself .. but paying attention to what I'm doing this time around .. I got A-I done (about 5 inches of paperwork), and today I'm hoping to get through J-O or J-P .. K, M, and P are huge reports again .. but I'm prepared this time, and did my homework .. and so far the final numbers are working the way they should .. (going down .. lol)

I did get out of there at 9 last night instead of 8, but it gave me a clean cutoff .. that much I have to do .. is make sure that I leave with a clean cutoff, or coming in would not be as easy as it should be .. So -- it cost me an extra hour, but I was happy when I was done, and didn't push myself like last time .. :)

So -- I'm in a happy place, and things are going well .. I didn't get my nails done, but just like I thought; everyone was out ..between the last 2 days of being cabinbound; and superbowl weekend coming up .. yup -- they were busy .... I can wait until next Monday or Tuesday .. :)

Talk later !!! Hope everyone has a great day !!!!!

It's 52 but started out in the 40's and foggy this morning. Fit quote for today: There are only two options regarding commitment; you're either in or you're out. There's no such thing as life in-between.--Pat Riley Motivational quote for today: Know that deep inside, you are resilient, brave and so much stronger and more powerful than your fears. Almost all green yesterday just missed floors but did achieve my steps per hour goal and had 14,094 steps. Got in a great 20 min treadmill walk and Biceps/Glutes yesterday and today Chest/Abs and 20 min elliptical. Get new workouts on Monday and start fresh. Won't know until sometime tomorrow afternoon my work schedule for next week to plan my workout times of day and number of days.

Good morning to my friends .. :) ...

Michelle .. I'm so sorry that you are still having headaches .. I've never had a migraine, but have had friends that have .. and I can feel nothing but sorry for them .. I'm glad your MRI came through clean ..

Hubby's car still isn't starting .. and I learned something new .. (even after 40 plus years .. I still learn things about him .. lol I told him that that is what's keeping our relationship alive .. :) ) I never knew he knew how to change a car battery .. lol He's changing it back to his old battery .. and see if it will start .. Keeping fingers crossed ....

I told him I would leave him the Beauty .. but tomorrow I have to leave him with Elsie, cuz mom can't get into Beauty anymore ..Thankfully they both started without any problems..

Today -- I asked if hubby wanted me to stay home until it was time to go into the office (starting 2nd shift) but he said no .. The only stop I HAVE to make is right down the block from the office .. to use my bonus bucks .. they are only good this week of the month .. and 2 days got away from me for some reason . lol .. So -- I'm stopping there .. $30ish is not something I want to miss ..

I'm working 2nd shift and proud of myself for getting through the 9ish inches of paperwork.. without getting flustered .. I just took it small parts at a time, and it worked .. :) so today I can start entering ... :)

So -- wishing everyone a great day, and will talk later *during brain breaks .. lol*
