Tried to go back to work on Thursday but, was not able to as my stomach was not feeling well. We go back on Monday. I think I had a touch of the flu as I could not leave the toilet for some time and once I did I sleep the whole day. I also had the chills and sweated a lot. I feel better not. But , I am taking it easy.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Sandy, I'm really happy to hear that your surgery seems to have helped you quite a bit. I hope that you continue to see improvement and that going back to work goes okay for you. Just be careful not to overdo it and set yourself back...

My interview went okay. Not fantastic, not awful, just okay. I couldn't really get a feeling for whether or not I would be a good fit for this position, but I'm always hopeful. The only problem with this job would be the drive. The hospital is in a busy area near the university and there's a lot of construction going on around the hospital, especially in the parking lots. So the drive could be a bit of a problem, but nothing that I couldn't deal with. I'm going to continue applying for other jobs and we'll just see what happens...

I hope the week started out really well for the rest of you. I'll try to check in again sometime soon...

There was much rejoicing!

Vali - I will keep my fingers cross for you to get the job.

I am doing much better since my surgery. I haven't really been in a lot of pain the whole time. It is just making sure that everything is working right. I just keep eating a lot of bran & oats. I am planning on going back to work on Thursday. Hopefully all day but, maybe half. we will see how it goes.

Everyone have a good week.

Hi everyone. I haven't been getting notifications from this group all month, so sorry for having been absent for so long. At the moment I just wanted to pop in and tell you all that I have a job interview Monday morning for what could be just about a perfect job if I get it. I'll try to be in touch again sooner this time and let you know how it goes...

There was much rejoicing!

We just hit 76 today. Otherwise we have been in the 60's . Haven't seen much of out side since my surgery just here about it from DH. First day I feel awake some what.

Hope everyone is doing good.

@NAN041 It doesn't feel like fall does it?

Yesterday here was so hot that it felt like summer all over! Hoping for some cooler days so I can enjoy working out outdoors again!

@FROSTY99 Hope that things are okay with you and sending good thoughts your way!


Hello ladies! I hope everyone is doing okay. I just found this group and joined up yesterday.

I'm working on trying to be both healthy and frugal! I think both can be done and easier than most people think!

So far this month I am close to the end of my grocery budget but I had some extra expenditures due to Harvey. Looking in my pantry though there is still plenty we can eat for this month so I think we can stay in budget.

We are sheltered in at friends daughter. They live in a block home so as safe as one can be in a hurricane. Hopefully we will have a home to return to

Pat - Thinking of all of you there. Please be safe and take care. I am so worried about you, Bill and Abbie right now. I have my cousin and his wife that live there too. Just so worried. Also have a good friend of DH who is in a Band that is on the road. They were scheduled to do a show in Georgia and one in Tennessee.Saying prayers for all of you.

Gail - So good to hear from you. Thought I was going to have to send a search party for you. emoticon

On a Diet - Welcome to the Team!

Well , we finally got long needed rain here. Not a lot must some. Hopefully we will get more and it will help with the fire here and in Oregon.

Hope everyone is safe and having a good weekend.

We have done our storm prep, I packed a bag with clothes for several days, we have food we won't have to cook if we lose electric (there goes the diet!), I have packed up items for Abbie (furbaby), everything outside has been moved inside that can be, I guess now we just have to wait for Irma to arrive. We will actually ride out the worst of it with friend's daughter & family. Should be fun with 6 adults, 1 teenager, 5 dogs, a cat and a guinea pig!!

I did get out and walk this morning since weather was still nice then (raining now). I logged over 8K and still have a bit more to do inside so will likely end up around 9K for today.

Hello team...

Well, today is a sad yet happy day.

Years ago, I started to babysit a 6 month-old baby boy, clear up through elementary school. Well, he is getting married today. I cannot attend. So, you can imagine how I feel.

Then, there is a local annual celebration, a block away, in my town, and I just do not feel like going. There is a car show, vendors, music, etc. I would like some new workout tee-shirts though, so hopefully there will be some politicans distributing free tee-shirts!

As for exercise, I rather do fitness pedal exercising. I did Walk Away the Pounds last night and felt totally unfulfilled. Maybe I just did not pick out the right one. Maybe I need to mix it up a bit and not do the same Leslie workout every workout and use her other DVDs. I have a ton.

I bought apple cherry tea bags the other day and placed a sun tea jar on my porch yesterday. It tasted like pure water. So, if you go to Dollar Tree, think twice about buying the apple cherry tea bags. Now I have Luzianne tea bags in the fridge attempting to make good iced tea. I know you are going to say to simply boil water, but I would end up spilling the boiling water on me.

Work has been going super.

However, my back has been killing me. Last night, I asked a housemate to rub muscle cream on my back and it felt much better...so much for the 2 aspirin.

Well, I am going to close for now. Be good!

Gail I have been wondering about you. Nice to hear your trip to Italy went well and now you are returning. Sounds like you have found your "favorite vacation spot". Enjoy.

We are trying to do all we can to get ready for Irma. Now wondering if we should have evacuated. Too late now to get out in the traffic. If necessary, we will go to a local shelter if it looks really bad in our area as we live in a mobile home and they aren't the safest place to ride something like this out.

Good morning

I sort have dropped off the face of the earth since I returned home from my trip. I will be going back to Italy soon, this time to the northern part...Umbria and Tuscany. I'll be gone for a few weeks, but the trip will be several days shorter than the spring trip. A bit anxious, as I always am before an overseas trip.

I've been very well, though my food has been such that I've been eating everything. Lucky I'm not into sugar. The Italians sure do like their sugar. For me, just please pass the salt. LOL

Sandy, I'll keep you in my prayers.

Pat, same for you and all those who may be hit by Irma.

Sending hugs to all,

Gail

We are watching things closely. If it looks too bad, we will head out. Can't find water anywhere already. Did fill up with gas today. Bill had Sonny take him to do that this afternoon while I was working.

Sandy glad they have found what is causing you the problem. Will keep you in my prayers.

Put Bill back on steroids and he is doing better. Too early to tell if this will turn the tide or not but praying it will.

I am working Tu-Th this week. Our office manager is on a cruise in the Caribbean-yikes. I would not want to be out there right now. Looks like we may be the next ones in the crosshairs of a hurricane.

Going in for a Colonoscopy on the 19th and then the 20th have surgery to repair the the bowels. They are going into the uterus and that is what has been giving me trouble with gas and bloating. Plus I have 6 hemorrhoids also. I am glad I am not working at Kohl's any more. But, it will all be fixed. I looking forward to it in one way and not in another.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day!

I'm going to pester the friend who is writing me my second letter of reference and apply for a few jobs that are available here in town. After I find a job I'll figure out what my other goals are for the month...
