Hey, Dee! How did you like the show? Hope you had a great time!

Looks like I'm going to miss the neighborhood Halloween party this afternoon. On the bright side, I'm working to Hawaii and not the east coast!

Have a happy Halloween weekend!

We never do this kind of thing either. He just had to hear me say several times that I wanted to see it when it was in Chicago, and at least a dozen times since it hit Peoria. I told him about my co-workers that were all going and how I wished I could too.

The tickets are quite expensive (compared to most things WE do), but he said he'd charge them, then pay for them with the Santa Saver when it matured in November.

Plays are really his thing either... unless it's a dinner theater, and we only do that about once every five years or so.

Wish my hubby was more interested in this type of stuff. Living in Vegas we have so much available to us along the lines of plays and concerts. But we never do anything!

No I've not read the book. In fact I never took the time to even think about whether there was a book. I'm really looking forward to seeing it Friday.

I love Wicked! I've seen it twice already and own the soundtrack.

Did you read the book? I really did not care for the book, but the musical takes the fun stuff from the novel and leaves the rest of it.

You will have a wonderful time!!!

Weekend went by way too fast!

I helped DH work on DD's siding, helped DD clean/declutter three rooms in her house, did up her dishes, went 100 miles south to see DS#2, had dinner with him, went on part of a 'haunted dead walk' (with stories of true events), and wished for a longer weekend to enjoy more time off work ;-)

Next Friday evening we go to see the play 'Wicked'. I'm really looking forward to it. I wanted to see it when it was in Chicago, but couldn't afford it. DH bought the tickets for us for my anniversary present. He definitely gets brownie points for that. Has anyone seen it? Most say they really liked it.

He's just a weird cat Archimedes. He had his very own catnip plant (and lots of just dried catnip). He chewed the catnip plant down to just steam about 1/2 from the dirt in the pot. He loves snorting (he really does that!) up the dried catnip and rolling in it. But he still chews on the darn plant! emoticon

My cat preferred PASTA with tomato sauce than fake plants ! LOL !!! Oh and my niece's guinea pig likes the crust of toast with a bit of butter. You can't make this stuff up !!

Have you tried giving the plastic plant eating cat some catnip ? Maybe they'll stay away from the plant once they discover the joys of catnip ! Otherwise, yes, you have a weird cat.

Have you ever thought of trying something such as Nature's Miracle to neutralize things after an 'accident'? I use it when my cat gets mad at me and pees somewhere he shouldn't ... sometimes on the floor or in a basket of either dirty laundry or clean socks, etc. In the latter case, I put some in with the laundry when I wash. DD also uses it because she has a dog she adopted that was not house-broke and she's not managed to get the job done either.

So last night Myles, the fake plant eating cat in the house, decide to lick the bottle of bleach/water mix that I used to clean up after Alex, the pooping cat in the house, mess. I grab it away from him but I've decide that Myles is a bit strange. Oh and he just licked the outside of the spray bottle. emoticon

I don't think Shuggie's tried a fake plant, but he has nipped an unsuspecting toe while someone slept - lol

He also likes to drag items into the living room, most of which he has brought up from the basement... at first it was small things like socks, but he's progressed to larger things like t-shirts. Crazy cat!

Edited to clarify... when I say nipped, he doesn't actually 'bite', he just grabs a hold of the skin and doesn't actually bite down, ... but it still gets your attention, lol

Fake plants? That's interesting ;-)

I bought a couple of 'kitty grass' plants, and once in the past I purchased a catnip plant. But, alas, I couldn't keep them alive. I should try it again.

Alicia, you've got peacocks in your area ? How cool is that !!! Okay, I know, they're eating your flowers and that's no fun. But gee, you're the only person I know who has peacocks chomping on their flowers. A cousin of mine had that problem with local deer. The deer were eating her flowers. I read that putting paprika or pepper around the base of the plants helps to deter deer. Don't know if that would work on peacocks.

You know, a couple of years ago, I saw a wild turkey two blocks from my house. I'm in the city !! who'd have thunk you'd see a wild turkey in the city, but we get them. I think peacocks would be prettier. LOL !!!

One of the teachers recommended stringing fishing wire around our plants. Apparently, they walk into the wire and just walk away. Can't wait to try it!

My husband and I took a gardening class on Saturday and learned so much! I can't wait to get outside, enjoy the sunshine, and play in the dirt!

I planted marigolds Saturday afternoon and the peacocks have already eaten most of the flowers. I thought the smell of marigolds would chase just about anything away! Back to the drawing board...

I got mad at DH around the first of the month, stayed mad for two weeks (must have been hormones, lol) and ate like a human garbage disposal! Got my attitude re-aligned, but still working on all the out of control cravings I created. I think I need to be put in a Eater's Prison for a while (locked up and not allowed to eat any junk). Grr....

This year has flown by! I think summer was a whole two weeks long this year - and both weeks were in the 100 degree range, lol.

As for the museums, it turns out I didn't have time anyway. DD drug me around to look at wedding dresses, and she doesn't even get married till NEXT September. But, lol, I suppose the way things have been going, I'll probably blink my eyes and it'll be here.

Sorry I wasn't online the last few days!

When you signed up, you were e-mailed 2 tickets. Hope it worked out for you!

I came down with a bad cold/flu and didn't go anywhere this weekend. Still recovering and hoping work does not call me today!

Just an FYI...

This Saturday is Museum Day! Thousands of museums across the country are offering free admission. Go to www.Smithsonian.com/museumday for participating organizations and to sign-up for your free tickets.

My girlfriend wants to go to the Grammy museum, but I want to go to the California Science Center. So many options!

I love factoids and information for motivation!

I recently checked out "The 21-day Weight Loss Kickstart" by Dr. Neal Barnard from the library. The first 80-100 pages discussed all kinds of studies and tests, which I found fascinating and useful.

Maybe try a new book, blog, or magazine to spice up your healthy lifestyle.

Looks like we're all in the same boat... and with this recession, I doubt anyone can afford to toss us an oar - lol

So, anyone know where we can get some free or low cost motivation? emoticon

Don't worry guys ! One less than perfect weekend or even week is not a reason to panic or beat on yourselves. This week, you do your best to eat a bit better. Now, go enjoy those dark leafy greens !

News from Miss Twist !

Hey, all ! I don't think Miss Twist will mind, but I'm going to post a PM from her. It's a good bye to all her Spark Buddies. She's getting engaged !!

****************************************
*****

To all my Spark friends,

I've neglected you for more than a year now, and for that I apologize. The last 12 months have been "interesting", to say the least. Work kept me down for 12-16 hour days for most of last year and culminated in my getting rather sick at the beginning of this year. Call it a weakened immune system due to stress.

While lying in bed squinting at my phone trying to figure out who I should text to bring me medicine, I decided 2 things - 1. never again was work going to cause me to be bed-bound for weeks and 2. I needed a husband to run errands for me, so that I don't one say end up dead on my floor being eaten by my dogs like in Bridget Jones' diary :-)

In May I was able to finally start shedding some pounds with the use of hypnosis for stress management, green smoothies, and integrating exercise in my daily routine - like biking to work. Around this time, I also posted an ad on craigslist, and lo and behold went on a date. That's right. I said craigslist.

The resulting date turned into a head over heels romance and after we survive meeting our families in the next 2 weeks, we will be getting engaged and, next summer, married. I have the good fortune of having found a man who encourages me to exercise and eat well (and god help me, makes me drink wheatgrass), makes home made pasta, dives for abalone, can carve/build/weld just about anything, and thinks I'm a freakin' goddess. Soooo yeah. I'm keeping him.

As my friend Debbie said - I'm an overnight success in love, after 38 years of trying.

And so this, my friends, is why I haven't been around. In the frenzy of consolidating 2 households, 4 dogs and two cats, I had to decide what my priorities are and although Sparkpeople served its purpose for me, but it's time to move on.

So I bid you adieux.

Thank you all for your support and encouragement over the last few years. You've been wonderful.

--Twist

A heat advisory Friday & Saturday, then felt pretty cold Sunday & Monday. Sooo... the drive in was a bit cool, but we did enjoy it. My oldest (6 y/o) grandson said it was "the best movie ever!" His mom says that was because it was outside ;-)

I hadn't been to a drive in in about 33 years and it is a bit different than I remember. No stands with speakers - instead we were instructed to tune into 93.5 (I couldn't run my engine because I didn't know how to shut the running lights off), but we could hear just fine anyway.

The only disappointment was the screen; it was a lot smaller compared to what I remember the drive ins that were around here. My son thinks it might just be my perception. That MAY be true, but I was 19 or 20 (so not a LITTLE kid - just skinnier - lol)

Anyway,, the Smurfs was a cute movie (kids went home after that, leaving me, DH, & DS#2) and Planet of the Apes was better than I thought it would be.

All in all, a relaxing evening and I'm ready to do it again. ;-)

TGIF, everyone ! How was the drive in, Dee ? I don't even know if we have any drive ins near me anymore. The one I remember as a kid closed years ago.

Anyone doing anything exciting for the Labor Day weekend ? I'll be running a few errands here and there. Mostly, I'm going to read. I need to keep growing those brain cells to replace the ones that are dying off ! LOL !!!

see ya

I'm a little worried about falling asleep myself - lol - I'm usually in bed by 9 and the gates don't even open till 7:15

Looks like our movie choices are:

...Screen 1: Winnie the Pooh ...followed by Cars 2

or

...Screen 2: The Smurfs ...followed by The Rise of the Planet of the Apes

DS#2 says he'd like to see Planet of the Apes and DIL had mentioned The Smurfs last week. So I'm guessing it'll be screen number 2.

There are no drive-ins in my immediate area (probably been about 33 years since I've been to one too). The one we'll go to is a little over an hour south of here (closer to my son's house), and they tell me there's another one about another 30-45 miles south of that one. Those are the ONLY two I know of.

Time off is ALWAYS too short. And any time I get more than two days off in a row, I usually don't want to go back. ;-) Why did we have to be born so darn good looking instead of filthy rich? LOL

The drive-in sounds like so much fun! I haven't been to one in probaby 35 years, and I don't think I've even seen one in the last 10 or so. You'd think that there would still be some somewhere in Texas since they could operate most of the year, but it seems that the few remaining ones are all clustered in the Midwest.

Sadly, I don't get a 3-day weekend. I have to work Sunday, and I just got a freelance assignment with no clear schedule; it might have to happen on Monday. I guess I can't gripe too much because I just got back from 2 weeks off, but gosh, those two weeks were short!

I am SO looking forward to the upcoming 3, er, I mean 4 day weekend (I'm taking Friday off too).

Friday I'm going to an Ethnic fest in Springfield, IL (about a dozen countries represented - mostly food and entertainment, I think).

Then we're supposed to try to make it to the drive in with the kids and grandkids. I thought the grandkids might enjoy the drive in and it's been years since I've been to one. There aren't many left.
