Good Afternoon:

I ran some errands this morning, watered the garden, and came home to make egg salad and manicotti. Manicotti is a job, but it's healthy, tasty and it freezes beautifully.

Enjoy the evening everyone.

I bought a rental in Prescott, AZ, and when I would visit before hand, people tried to say it wasn't hot there because it was always 10 degrees cooler than Phoenix. I say if you have to put your air conditioning on in the car by 7:30 a.m., it's hot! I feel ya, Harplute. emoticon

It's 69 already and it isn't even 8am. Got to get going to the garden before it gets too hot. It's supposed to get to the high 80s today.

OOLALA - thanks for your post. Especially just because we have the urge to eat doesn't mean we need to eat. I needed to hear that right now. I had been eating pretzels, and before that the last of the chocolate I had. I was thinking I would have more more pretzels. Even though I know that statement is oh so true, I was going to eat anyway. Now I will not so that tomorrow I can tell you that I didn't.

Sorry you are going through so much. It sure would be nice if things were more predictable! I know it can be hard, but the urge to eat doesn't mean we have a need to eat. I find in such situations, the best thing for me to do is to stick to my ordered eating plan. Then it doesn't matter what urges I feel. If it isn't true hunger, eating won't help, and it if it is, it's okay to be hungry for awhile before I have the meal I know is coming. Since I can have anything I want at a meal (besides sweets-that's just my rule for me) I don't get upset if I have to eat at a hospital cafeteria or fast food place. I can always find a moderate meal.

Hope you can ride the waves of thoughst and feelings.

Sane eating to all today! emoticon

Good Morning:

Well, I'm at the hospital for several hours again. Vic came in for his weekly blood test to see if he needed a transfusion. The results weren't ready in time for me to get to a 9am appointment, so I dropped him off at home and I went to my appointment. When I got there I called the hospital and sure enough I had to get him back to get two pints of blood. He's in the infusion center now. That's the bad news. The good news is that his other numbers are slightly up so he is holding his own. This emotional roller-coaster really gets to me. My food is not good at all. I actually get very hungry out of stress.

Hope you all have a good Spark day.

Gail

Nomi: Good going on the weight loss. I'm so proud of you.

Nancy: I bet your yard will be the most beautiful in the neighborhood. I love your house. It has a lot of curb appeal.

Good Morning

I'm at my daughter's. My daughter went with my granddaughter on a class trip and I'm staying withmy 3 1/2 year old grandson. I'm taking him for pizza and movie a little later. We're going to see kung fu panda.

I got on the scale as today is my weigh-in. Much to my surprise I lost 5 lbs. this week. i'm happy but I have quite a bit to go before loosing the weight gain of the last few months. I'm just focusing on the lose.

Have a good day.

Nomi Glad you are enjoying all the birthday celebrations. I know the flowers from your kids must have been nice.

Gail Gardening and going to the gym...that is wonderful. Hope the aches will be gone soon. How is Vic doing?

We finally got the back yard cleared out. They worked for two days getting it done. We had two bushes moved in order to save them. Now we have to figure out what we will do in the yard.

Hope everyone is having a great week.

Thanks, Nomis, but I fell apart later last night. It was kind of a surprise. However, I am back on track today and had none of the urges that were flowing yesterday. I feel good about being done tonight, except for my cup of mocha to come. That's what I should have had last night! emoticon

OOLALA - good for you for not eating. I know what a victory that is.

What a day. My computer has been awful, getting slower and slower. Yesterday I called cable my internet provider. He tested a couple of things and made some adjustments. He said the computer probably needs a “tune-up” and doesn’t know how long what he did would last. Last night it got bad again and this a.m. I could hardly use it. To backtrack, last night I told my son and if he had any suggestions, he said delete the cookies. I told that to a friend after my conversation with him and she said she’s done that and has made a difference. She told me how to do it. Lo and behold it is working much better.

I went to the sr. meeting and didn’t stay as long as I would have liked as someone was coming to give me an estimate on the water problem in the basement. About 40 minutes before the appt. I got a call – has to be reschedule due to some “emergency”.

Going to dinner tonight. My friend and I are celebrating our birthdays. That’s the last of my birthday celebrations – but hey who knows.

The actress is Melissa McCarthy and she is a hoot in this film.

I don't know if it's necessary to see it on the big screen, but it's probably good for a rental for sure, when the day comes. However, if you're offended by frank sexuality, you would probably not enjoy it.

I've been having a general sense of wanting to eat today. I don't know if it is because I'm being considered for jury duty or not, but I stuck to my three meals, lunch and dinner a bit bigger than usual. I'm done with food for the evening. emoticon

Thanks for the movie update - I was wondering about it.

Having problems with my computer. It is running very slow. Wasn't sure if it was cable, he did something and its better but he thinks its something with the computer and may need a "tune-up". Anyone know anything about this?

Went to the gym - treadmill and strength training. Going to play Mah Jongg this afternoon.

Good morning:

I'm a bit sore from gardening yesterday, but will be fine with a couple of ibuprofen. Today I'll take it easy...for the most part. Our TimeBank is having a fund-raiser and I got an urgent call yesterday for food. I'll be sending over a cheese platter, crackers and a fruit platter. I don't have the energy to go to the party but will send a donation. I don't know how I could have possibly gotten through the past few years without the TimeBank; it's an invaluable community resource.

Besides a couple of hours of gardening yesterday I went to the gym, did a few laps and sat in the hot tub to relax. I hope to get to the gym again today to get on the elliptical or the treadmill.

Hope all is well with all of you.

Gail

Cola: I was kind of interested in that movie. One of the parts is played by the actress who plays Molly on the sitcom Mike & Molly, and I like her a lot.

Good Afternoon:

I went to the garden before 10 this morning and put down newspaper and hay between rows and plants. I also planted more seed where it looked like the first ones didn't sprout. Whew, that was very tiring. Afterward I went to the gym and swam a few laps and then headed for the hot tub. I just took some ibuprofen and a cold drink. Time to sit down and relax.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY NAOMI emoticon

Good Morning;

I don't know if it's stress, age, or what but I seem to be tired and lacking in energy all the time. Yesterday I took a shower, washed my hair, brushed my teeth and made Moussaka. That was it. The rest of the day I watched TV in bed. I figure I'd better get a blood test to see if something else is going on.

It's gray and in the low 60's today. Such a lack-luster day. I went to the grocery before 7am this morning so thankfully that's behind me. It's a good day for reading and/or watching some TV. I really got to get out to the garden and hoe, lay down newspaper and put down the hay but I don't have the energy.

Hope you are all doing well.

I've been dragging all day. I got up at 4:30am and though I haven't done much, that was a very bad idea. I should have forced myself to stay in bed at least another hour.

Today was a good day. I didn't have to do anything but supervise. Our niece came over again today and finished washing the windows. She washed all the windows (inside and out), plus all the storm windows. That is a lot of windows. She also helped David get some things out of the attic that needed to be thrown away. She is a great worker...she is earning money before her summer job starts. She has another year and a half til college graduation. The new front door and storm door were installed today. The painters are supposed to be back tomorrow and paint it and the trim around it. On Monday, we have someone coming to start clearing out the back yard...it is so overgrown and really a mess.

Gail You and Vic are in my thoughts and prayers.

Nomi It sounds like you are doing a lot better. Good for you....Keep it up!!!

Hope everyone is having a great week!!

Good Evening:

Preliminary result of the MRI shows a small tear of my rotator cuff and then some arthritis (degerative joint disease and cartilage loss). What next? Vic's numbers were down a bit and it is worrying because they are already so low. He had a transfusion today and he is in good spirits.

Best to you all,

Good Morning:

Yesterday was a very LONG day. I spent 8 hours taking my friend to the hospital, staying throughout her day surgery, and taking her home when she was discharged. In the evening I went for an MRI on my shoulder, but not before taking two valium. I feel like I'm buried alive in that machine and can only get through it if I keep my eyes closed all the time. Well, the valium knocked me out to the extent that it took a bit to wake up this morning.

As predicted, Vic needs a transfusion today and I fully expect we'll be five hours minimum before we get home. It's ok. I'm much calmer and more patient since I made the decision last week to pay someone to clean my home.

Hope you are all doing well.

Gail

This morning David and I went out to breakfast. I had the best yogurt, granola and fruit parfait. Afterwards we had to go to Home Depot to get some wood to finish the new pull drawers he is putting in some of my cabinets. He is working on them now. The painters are almost done. The outside looks so much better. We totally changed the colors...it had blue trim and shutters. We now have pale gray trim and dark charcoal shutters. The new door will be installed Thursday and it will be red. The colors look so good against the bedford stone. Our niece is coming over tomorrow to help clean all the windows. She's going to college and her summer job doesn't start until the 8th. So she is earning money doing jobs for the family. Next week she is helping David put his new shed up. Besides paying her, I told her I would fix dinner for her one night and make whatever she wants. She has already said that she wants me to make my stuffed shells recipe (that is her favorite) and my sunshine salad to go with it. So I guess that is what I will be making.

It's been rainy here. It's been really nice as far as the temps go...80's and not humid. Now it is cooler and we may get some thunder storms.

I hope everyone is doing well and getting a good start to the day. I've been doing better...both with my meals and with getting a little more exercise. So hopefully I will see some results soon.

Have a good day!!!

Good Morning:

Got all my plants in yesterday. Now what is left is to lay newspaper with hay on top between the rows and around the plants. This all but eliminates weeding all summer. All I have to do is water, sucker the tomato plants, and pick the crops.

Vic had a root canal yesterday and everything went well. Today I go to the doctor to find out about my shoulder. I hope they can do something. Afterward I'll stop in to TARGET and look around. I got a gift certificate for my birthday that I have yet to use. It's 58 and very cloudy right now but the forecast calls for sunshine with temperatures around 69.

Enjoy the day and stay well.

Happy Saturday,

I'm here at work until 2 PM and I have 3 more hours to go.

Gail, I will hv to ask hubby on your question about the tomatoes. He is the gardener. I just water the plants and when they're ready, I eat em! You sure have a lot to plant tho! Wow! Good job on the treadmill and the rest of your exercise. You're look

5 more working days and I'm on vacation to AZ. The weather there has to be better than here in IL.I'm so tired of the cold and rain! When is spring ever getting here? Oh Yeah, it's Spring but not what I am expecting. I want warm and sunny days.

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend.

Good morning:

Got in 25 minutes on the treadmill yesterday and was glad of it. I ached all over from the plantings I did earlier this week. I planted 12 tomato plants two days ago and fear that I put them too close together. I may have to dig them up and replant. We'll see. I've still a boatload of plants to get in. How far apart do you all put your tomato plants?

Last night at dinner our gd told us she would like to take a semester off from school. She did so well this year and I hate to see her do this. I'm afraid she'll lose her momentum and might not even return. The "stick to it " attitude that we had going to school just doesn't seem to be there for many young people. She has no school debt so far so that repaying loans is not an issue. Basically, she wants to go to Colorado so she can be near her boyfriend. He's in school there. I just hope she doesn't do something that will really screw her up.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Good morning!! I did well yesterday, but still up a pound from the sugar fest I gave into on Wednesday. Going to make it a good day and not get discouraged.

Kama is ready to take it all the way!

Good morning:

I worked out yesterday on the elliptical for 35 minutes and was very satisfied with the workout. Then I went to the garden and put in 12 tomato plants. I was really working hard for 2 hours. Upon my return to the house I immediately headed for the shower. When I came out I had 3 ibuprofen and a gin and tonic. LOL (The G&T was a rare experience. I never have more than one drink a month and have been know to go for years without having any alcohol at all.)

Hoping to get some more plants in today.

Be well, take care, and put a smile on your face. I wish I could hug you all.

Maw – hope you are feeling better and able to get around very soon.

Nancy – still raining here. Prediction – a little better tomorrow and then Friday and Sat. scattered showers. Sunday – nice. Monday again showers. Enough already.

Does anyone know how Rebecca is. She's been AWOL for a long time.

It sounds like everyone is staying busy. It is still raining here. I am so ready for the sun to shine again.

Gail Like you, I just know when I like something. I usually need a lot of help pulling it all together. But for some reason, it is going much better this time. It is looking pretty good. We still have a lot of work to do, but it is coming along nicely. David is adding some pullout shelves to the cabinets in the kitchen. The cabinets are so low and this will make it easier to get to things.

I am eating much better lately...not perfect but better. I am hoping I will see some results soon. Saturday my grandson and I are celebrating our birthdays together with the family. He enjoys it because his isn't until the end of this month...mine was last Saturday. He turns 9. I can't believe the boys are growing up so much...the other was 10 in February.

Nomi I think we all need a good laugh once in awhile. It makes life a little brighter!!!

To all the new members... emoticon

Hope everyone is having a good week!!!
