I have broken a toe too, it is not fun! Hope it heals quickly.

NancyPat, it is really a bad thing that you broke your toe but such a funny story.

Been there done that - first time my darling son (who was 2 at the time) decided to paint his room with Vaseline - I walked into the room and slid into the door jamb - I have since done it several times and each time it was a pretty klutzy thing to do.

We noticed some trees blooming today. It was really nice out--very sunny, so my daughter got out with the baby for a nice walk. And I managed to break my toe!

7" of white stuff Saturday, melted off yesterday and today. Can that please be all for this season? PLEASE?

I have a few early bloomers opened up in a south facing bed. One snowdrop. 2 crocuses. And one mountain iris. The blossoms are very small, but by gum, they are there! HOORAY!

Tomorrow is April - it's about time to get getting on with spring.

That was nice of your son to vacuum. The belt in our new vacuum broke about the first month we had it. We have been using the building care takers vacuum. He looked at ours yesterday and told us he would fix it now just have to get hubby to go get the belt.

Rain will be coming in about 1:00 pm today. I am taking my walk at about 10 am to Starbucks, I have a date with a tall iced tea with sugar free cinnamon syrup and non fat milk, just love it.

We had a beautiful day yesterday and today, while it is supposed to rain, it is also supposed to be in the 60s for the 1st time since forever! I walked to work this morning and it was so nice. If it holds off raining I will walk home too. It is just under 2 miles, perfect distance.

Did everyone have a nice weekend? Mine was good, relaxed, I got some cleaning and organizing done. My son came over and vacuumed my whole downstairs for me (I hate vacuuming and he knows it). He took out the trash and helped me pick up, what a nice young man he has turned into!

Started sleeting and snowing last night, we had several inches by noon today and then it started melting again - weird weather and plenty of changes. It is March 30th already, can't the snow just GO AWAY?

Jumpup, I would be frozen if I kept the house at 63. Of course, as you noted, heat rises and my downstairs is always a bit colder than up.

We had rain here in VA yesterday night and all day today, but hopefully, it will clear up enough to go outdoors tomorrow. My grandson is feeling house bound.

My gas bill is a lot higher in this house than it was in the old house! And that was an old leaky place. AND I keep the temp at 63 here! Of course, I lived upstairs in a double, so I benefitted from the downstairs heat there. Gotta love Physics! Heat Rises!

Barbara, hope you are having a wonderful time! And not getting snowed on. It's snowing here AGAIN - and sticking.

Time to do some stretching, I've been sitting still too long.

This year has been just the opposite for me. My highest gas bill was just about half of the norm. I tend to feel cool, so I get through the summer with the a/c only a few times. My late husband and I always had a problem with the temps--he wanted it in the 70's in the winter and in the 60's in the summer!

Barbara, my gas bill doubled this month. Mine is averaged and it is much higher than it has been in years. Could not believe it. I am hoping that summer won't be too terribly hot because I know that will mean my hubby will want to run the AC. I really don't care for AC, I will just deal with the heat but when mom was here we couldn't do that. I live in an older home so we had to put in window units, now of course my husband wants to use them every summer. Drat! He feels that 80 is hot, I think that 90 is warm so we tend to disagree over the AC.

NancyPat, it sounds lovely, I am glad you had a nice service. Your pastor went through quite an ordeal though.

We had snow the other day, just enough to make the streets slick. It didn't stick and today it is raining. It is supposed to get a bit warmer, they originally called for 60s but that is now 50s. I hope it at least gets that warm. It has been a long winter.

I ordered flowers from our HS band, I can't wait to get them. May 15th is the last freeze date here, the flowers will arrive on May 3rd and I got hardier flowers so weather permitting I can put them in right away. I also ordered tomatoes and peppers from Burpees, they will deliver them sometime around the 15th of May. I got seeds too, I have to wait a couple of weeks to put them in, lettuce, radishes and such. I just can't wait!

I hope you are all doing well, I am taking a few days off since it is spring break for our school. I had a few tasks that had to be completed while teachers and students were gone, got those done by Tuesday and so decided to use a little vacation time. Yesterday I vegged out, it was very nice! Today I need to begin my decluttering.

Bitter cold day - more snow - no accumulation but there were serious accidents that prevented my pastor from attending the ceremony today for my precious Helen. First there was about a 20 car pile up that had him ending in a ditch, then he got out of that only to be tied up for more than an hour in another accident tie up on another freeway he needed to travel to get to the chapel where the service was held. There were about 20 of us from the family and the chapel was full with other families of those who passed away. We saw the family of a man who was in the room right next to Helen and and they reached out and hugged all of us. The chaplain from the VA was overjoyed to see us all as well. The service was lovely and very moving. They called each person's name and had the family come forward. They had a harpist playing and rang a bell each time a name was called. There were two chaplains there and each of them read a poem, talked about some stories of love and caring they had experienced with our loved ones. The service ended with the honor guard playing taps. It was a really nice closure for us.

We went back to Helen's granddaughter's home and had a lovely lunch and visited and laughed, cried a little, and hugged a lot. I am so glad we did this.

Red eyes can be killer, and I always think it's harder going West to East anyway! Hope you acclimate in enough time to enjoy your stay!

Woke up to a couple inches of snow on the ground this morning, but the sun came out (although it forgot to bring the heat with it) and it mostly melted. Good grief I can't wait for real spring. 60 -70 degrees, no CHANCE of snow, flowers up. It never lasts long enough but I so enjoy it when it arrives.

I will miss walking in the park this year. I don't like walking suburban streets particularly, so I will have to find a better place to walk.

Barbara, have a great trip, I sure hope you get good weather.

We watched a webinar about a new product that we are looking into. I asked about training and he explained they had a variety of options, one of those was to go to Atlanta for 3 days, I suggested that we do that, right now! However, my boss was not inclined to send us to Atlanta when we could get training here or on the web. Kill Joy! It is warm there, it is cold here, seemed pretty simple to me. The high today is in the 20s, in March! They are looking at 70s in a few days and here we are hoping for 50s. I am tired of cold and wet and windy, I want warm!

I have been paying for bragging recently that I have been sleeping better--most of this week I have not had a restful sleep. Last night was a little better, so I hope.....

Weather drives me crazy. No clue from one day to the next what we will get.

Well, I knew I had missed a few days of posting - didn't realize it had been so long! Been busy, been feeling tired, been aggravated.

I am as bloated as a balloon, have puffer-fish face, short tempered - I love prednisone!

Did some push ups against the towel bar in the bathtub. Only 10, but man, I felt it for 3 days.
Think I will go back to my sink ups, LOL and work my way towards 'bar ups'!

Here too, the weather is on again off again. Won't say it's been warm yet, but it's been nice - when it's not single digits. And THAT'S enough to make you crazy.

I think spring is trying to keep up with winter--it comes and goes and comes and goes and . . . . . Today the temp was in the upper 70s but tomorrow's high is supposed to be in the 50s with a low tomorrow night of 28. And of course Tuesday we're supposed to have snow, then back warm by next weekend. I love roller coaster rides!

I had a great day enjoying the warm temps and having the windows open to let some fresh air into the house.

I left the house at 8:30 with jeans, light weight long sleeved shirt, and a sweater on to get my car serviced. Now at 1:30 I just changed into shorts and a short sleeved t-shirt. Loving the warmer weather! Was going to take a walk yesterday but was too tired. Hoping to get one in later today after the sun gets a bit lower in the sky.

IT has gotten chillier again. And I have been told that there is a forecast for snow in VA next week when I get there. As long as my flights there and home again don't get screwed up!

We're headed for a beautiful day here--sunny and high in the 70s. Of course, this weekend brings a cold front and rain again. I hope to take advantage of the weather today, and pull the bike out for a ride.

Have a great weekend everyone!

I had a great day today too - found out they can postpone surgery on my son - may even be able to delay it for a few years instead of just a few months if the alternative treatment at pain clinic works for him.

Today was a great day. I had lunch with a friend who was celebrating her 60th birthday. Mine is in November. I feel healthy and my weight is coming down. I have been eating healthy and weighing my food which has helped a great deal. I want to stay fit and enjoy life in the next decade.

Not being a burden on our kids is really a concern for many of us - I am concerned about the possibility of becoming disabled and dependent on anyone.

Hi everyone, I hope you are all having a good day. It is the 1st day of spring for us. Yesterday (the last day of winter) was really nice, the mid 50s and really sunny. Today (the 1st day of spring) I woke up to snow! It is cold and it was snowing. I am feeling just a bit testy about the snow, I am so tired of snow and winter weather. Just wanted to grouse a bit!!

I have been working on getting back on track. Reminding myself to take baby steps because that is what usually works best. So, while I have not lost any weight, I have stopped gaining weight and I am getting my snacking after work and in the evening under some level of control. I am working on getting my exercise back up to speed, walking the dog and such. I did it once so I know I can do it again, but is sure isn't easy! I hope you are all finding some level of success, you have to take pleasure in the small steps and not worry over the big picture. Slow and steady wins the race, I just believe that no matter what you can't quit. I am watching my SIL deal with his dad who is 10 years older than I am and not in good health. I don't want to be that much of a burden on my kids if I can help it. So, working here on developing those healthy habits is one way I can try to keep that from happening.

Have a great day everyone!

Tornadoes scare me too, I grew up in the midwest. I have experienced earthquakes but only from the New Madrid fault. One morning I woke up a little early and felt my bed shake as if someone had reached out with a giant hand and shook my bed. I live in the Chicago area so earthquake does not immediately jump to mind. I hopped out of bed totally freaked out! Then when I watched the news I realized it was a shock felt from the New Madrid fault! My husband was sitting at the computer and did not feel it at all.

Barb, based on our weather this winter, you probably need to pack for all seasons. It's been a long time since we've had a full week of one season. emoticon

I don't like the idea of earthquakes, but tornadoes are the weather pattern that scare me the most. Of course, that would probably change if I lived I'n an area that had stronger seismic activity.

I am terrified of earthquakes. Hopefully, we will have a while before another one.

It has cooled down a tad, but it is still quite warm for the time of the year. Bonnie, I am waiting until next week to start checking VA weather for packing!

Barb, sorry to hear about the earthquake. I've felt 2 in my lifetime, but neither one was very impressive. I guess that's what I get for living in Virginia all my life, instead of an area that is prone to big shakes! :-)

As for the time change, I would rather not see DST at all. Just when my husband was getting to leave for work with a little daylight, they change the time so he gets to leave in the dark again. Also, it's a killer for the little ones who are on a regular sleep schedule that has to be rearranged so parents can go to work!

We've had cold, windy rain since Sunday night, with freezing rain, snow, and sleet mixed in yesterday and last night. Since the days are so gray, I feel like I could sleep 24 hours a day!

So we had an earthquake this morning--luckily, it was a moderate one. My old lady cat was completely unimpressed but the younger cat was a little spooked. He hasn't been hiding but I think it has taken him a little aback.

TKNGCNTRL, I have to agree, just quit messing around and keep it one or the other. I do love the extra hour of daylight in the evening so I would prefer DST over standard time. They keep making DST longer so just quit fooling around and make it permanent.

It is not very warm today, the weekend was cold. It should be warmer tomorrow though. I can start walking again since all the snow and ice are off the sidewalks, it has been treacherous trying to walk. Even the dog was slipping on the ice.

We had a birthday party for my granddog yesterday, he is 13 years old. He still gets around really well and is a pretty frisky doggy. He is a pretty good dog and a pleasure to walk with, I try to get him out everyday when I can because they are so busy he doesn't get any long walks.

Re: sleeping better
Could be the time change. Longer daylight is better for my mood. I don't like the losing an hour, though. Wish they'd just keep it at DST. I mean, if you can manipulate it for most of the year now, why not just make it permanent.

I have done all that, but none of it is a recent change. I do think that I am getting better at letting things go, but still, not enough stress release to explain how much better I sleep. I will not analyze it, I just enjoy it!!

Are you exercising more, in less pain, losing a little weight, or had a change of meds? All of those things can account for better sleep.

Nice warm day today took extra long walks to enjoy the warm weather. Today was going to be my rest day so I had better make tomorrow be the one. I use to not take rest days but not realise they are just as important as exercise days. I use to try to be in my eyes perfect now I see that is not good and I give myself slack.

emoticon Kathryn, that is great! Thanks for inspiring the rest of us.

It actually got warm here and the snow is melting. We still have the big mounds where we shoveled but it has melted in the yard. We are supposed to get more this weekend but only about an inch so I guess I can live with that. They are not calling for anymore really cold temps for the next week so I am very happy about that.

Thanks, I plan to get to bed early tonight too so I can work on some classwork and IEPs in the morning when I am fresh and then head to the pool for several hours while Ed enjoys a gathering at the local fire department fundraiser. We bought a ticket and that gets one person in for free and they can have lunch while there for freewill donations - the ticket bought us chances on $100-5,000 prizes to be drawn every 10 minutes from noon to 6 p.m. We probably won't win anything but my darling son can have lunch and a social outing.

NancyPat, I hate that. I was a very poor sleeper for my entire life untill maybe a year ago. I don't know if I am ready to say that I sleep well now, but it is so much better than I ever did that it constantly amazes me when I get up, at how many hours I slept! I don't sleep through the night but when I wake up during the night, I seem to fall back to sleep fairly quickly. Hope you get some sleep this weekend and catch up.

It sounds like we're all on the wonderful weather roller coaster ride. The past 4 days had temps on the upper 70s, only to see a high today of 41 and wind chills in the teens.

Nancy Pay, I hope you get toned early tonight bad get caught up on your sleep.

Had lunch with a couple of people today. We went to a place that is famous for their hamburgers--it has been around for over 60 years--so I had a burger and the good news is that it was fabulous!! The bad news is that it was a lot of calories. Sigh. I did go to the gym this morning and did the elliptical, which might not have been good for my foot.

When I went for my walk at 7:00 am it was cold in a light weight jacket but by 12 I had that coat wrapped around my waist.The heat bill down $15 from last month should be even less next month.

Rain hit us today and the winds are really wild - temperatures are dropping rapidly and latest temperature prediction is that it will be 1 degree and maybe 4 inches of snow.

My daughter in Phoenix says you can tell who is new to town by what they wear at 70 - 80 degrees, LOL! The newer you are the shorter the shorts?

She's been there 10 years, she's still wearing a jacket at 70F, LOL!

Here in Southern California, there is such a range of attire. A lot pf people are in shorts, tees and flip flops, while I still have on a long sleeved shirt and socks!! I find that as I got older, I get cold easier--even here. It definitely helps when there is 100 plus weather in the summer...

Weather man says it will be in the 80's Sunday and Monday so I think I will be wearing these short pants for a few days now. It was so warm yesterday I just loved it. Went to Starbucks got a frozen drink and sat out on the patio. It was so nice to just watch the people walking by. I live in Mid town and a lot of people walk to where they are going so there is a lot of foot traffic.

We had lovely weather today, sunny, temperature hit 70 and was still above 50 when I got home. Unfortunately the weather forecast at 8 o'clock said - rain all day tomorrow, temperatures dropping to 4 degrees and a high for Thursday of 12. I did take my jacket off but definitely did NOT put away the winter stuff. Hope I don't need it but wouldn't dare put stuff away yet.

Nice emoticon day today in the 70"s. Spring emoticon is showing up everywhere. I put away my sweat shirts, heavy sweater and winter coats. I unpacked my spring shirts and knee length jeans. I shaved off my winter fur on my legs and put on my cropped jeans and flip flops. Spring is almost here.

Nice enough day today that I turned off the heat, put on a sweater and opened some windows! Glorious. Too bad we're in for 6 to 8" due on Wed. Good grief.

I've begun to work on my arms a little bit, in anticipation of getting back into the sink ups. Gotta get back to it.

I love BQ and could eat it every other day. We have a new place I may try tomorrow. We are having a rainy day today but it is warm in the 60's. I went out this morning and it was nice. I plan on going out again this afternoon.

55 today OMG! I don't know if I can handle it, it has been so long since it was anything remotely close to warm. The snow is melting, I can see grass on the ground in some places, it makes me happy. It is going to get cold again but at least I can see that spring may actually arrive.

How was everyone's weekend, mine was very routine, laundry, cleaning etc. But it was a good weekend, we tried a new barbecue place on Sunday. I was raised in MO, and lived in KC for several years, I do so love good barbecue. Chicago is not known for barbecue but more bbq places are opening so we are trying them. This one was pretty good but super crowded. So we took the food home. I ate too much, I own up to it. We did split 2 desserts between 4 of us though. Just a taste for everyone.

Jumpup - I do fear it lasting forever but I suspect it will swing from these bitter cold and snowy days to a REAL heat wave and we will soon be complaining about the HEAT - LOL just never satisfied.

Sunny and in the 60s here today. It's supposed to be the same tomorrow and Tuesday, followed by thunderstorms on Wednesday, then a high of 39 on Thursday. I knew the cold weather would return before the week was over. emoticon

Hubbie and I took advantage of the sunny weather and went for a walk twice this afternoon. It was great to be out I the sunshine!

Cold sunny day today. Wouldn't mind some of that 80 deg, Barbara!

We've got more single digits in the forecast, this can't last forever, can it?
