Glad you've joined us, Jane! Like you, I'm about to retire (January) and will be looking for something new and exciting to write about while I also look to making healthy choices! Welcome!

Good morning! I hopped on this site through the new start page. I didn't realize when I clicked on Writing that it would put me in a new group. I have done a lot of writing throughout my life, but always for business projects or organizational newsletters. I did have one adult study guide published, Heed Christ's Call. It is a study guide for church school or other classes (for adults) based on the scripture where Peter steps out of the boat and walks on the water toward Jesus. It was and is my first ISBN number! I was so excited about that!

I am retiring the end of this month and hope to actually do some writing for possible publication. With all the interest in Mary Poppins with the new movie "Saving Mr. Banks" I have been writing a piece called "The Real Jane and Michael Banks." Before marriage I was Jane Banks!

I have been dieting for nearly 50 years. I am no longer dieting . . . just trying to eat healthy and move more and watch the weight normalize. I have a long-long weigh to go. (Thought you writers would appreciate the semi-pun.)

Have a great week one and all! Jane

Good Morning- Today is an official Holiday where I live - it is the first day of Buck (Deer) season. the schools are closed, more than half of the factories are closed, the businesses that are open are operating with a skeleton crew.

I'm going to exercise and then cut fabric so that I can just sew. I have so many projects started, now I just need to finish them before Christmas.

Have a wonderful day everyone.

Hi everyone - I skimmed through the posts. I am "writing" but actually I am avoiding my husband because he annoyed me one too many times today.
I'm staring out my office window at the beautiful winter landscape thinking how much I should be writing, and for some reason, still not writing.

thanksgiving was great this year, much better than I would have expected considering everything that led up to it.

I can't wait to meet everyone and hopefully blend nicely.

I love the icon by the way.

Thanksgiving was tolerable - they even had a green salad for me, although it was from a bag. So except for the 7 hours of driving, we survived!!

Hope everyone had an equally fine Thanksgiving Day.

Since my daughter and grand daughter showed up 1.5 months ago, my life has been a whirlwind daily! I enjoy them so it's a good whirlwind.
Today, I will be 'packing' a few things to go to my sisters, maybe just one day, maybe more.
She doesn't have internet out in the country.
That is the only reason I may come back quicker!
My daughter will log on for me so I will appear to be here even I'm not.
I will write down all that I eat and post it in my tracker when I return.

Have a great holiday!
I will miss you all.

I've added some desk exercises to the links page - check them out!! Love the Spark videos since they're short and I can do them "in between" all the other stuff I have to do at my desk.

Posting here and hoping most everyone who has been active will read it. I've found lots of information on how to start a team but none on how to replace a team leader. I've emailed the Spark support folks and asked the question. Hopefully, they'll get back to me before the holidays.

Popeye - you may have already emailed the "right" folks at Spark. It won't hurt for them to get an email from two sources!

Meanwhile, I've noticed we have about 15-20 more members than we had when I joined in mid-November. I'm trying to pick them up and invite them to post an introduction. I'd ask that we all keep our eyes open for new intro posts.

Thanks POPEYE, VERO_DEN, and IGNITEME! And I hope I haven't left anyone out!

Vero_Den - LOL!! I absolutely love your Thanksgiving tradition. When I was young, we used to drive around at night to see the Christmas lights - but we usually waiting until mid-December.

Popeye - Fortunately for us, our land is pancake flat, so no geometry needed other than making sure everything is straight and level. And my DH got the major benefit of digging the holes. I'm just a grunt!

This is my day to wander and of course, it's raining cats and dogs. With a bit of lightening thrown in for excitement. But I have a 9am appointment that must be kept. Onward,

Good Morning!!!

After a TERRIBLE Monday at work, I am feeling much much better today. Tomorrow we get our annual turkeys from work (one less thing to buy for Thanksgiving) so I am looking forward to that.

Do any of you shop on black Friday? I never have, but my husband and I like to drive around Thanksgiving night and look at all the people standing in line, it's kind of our tradition now.

I hope everyone has a fabulous day!

Stacy,

Having significant experience with both raking leaves and digging post holes, raking leaves isn't even in the same category as digging post holes. Digging post holes probably burns more calories in 5 minutes than raking leaves does in an hour.

The last time I put a fence up has to be at least 10+ years ago and I needed the help of both of my sons then. It turned out really well - one side had a steady 8% drop over 60', the back had a drop of one foot over 60' and the south side had a 6" drop over three feet, then the artificially built up platform for the in-ground pool and patio ran for 57' but the posts we used were 10' because we wanted the top of the fence to be 6' above the pool. Thank goodness for those Geometry classes in high school.

As nice as the wind was for the past two days, today has been do the back yard and patio in detail, then run over the front yard with the mower. to make our property look civilized.

Happy Sunday!! Today's the day I get to put in a gate on my garden fence - designed to keep out little critters. Not sure what we'll do about the deer.

Windy and warm in Kansas today!

Good morning all. And Popeye - good to know there's a genius on the team. We can always use more of those. And you live in KCMO, where I go when I have to work in the office! Well, at least to State Line. I live south of Louisburg (famous for it's cider mill).

Yesterday I had a chance to do a virtual 5k - haven't done one for several weeks and it felt wonderful. Today, though, we're digging fence posts. Like raking leaves, it's a lot of exercise with a great product at the end!

Have a wonderful Saturday everyone!

Hello ALL!

Now that I am a recognized member of the team (with one Official Post), I'm just going to jump right in and start asking questions.

MADEIT3, I hope I don't hurt anyone inadvertently, but I'll let you all know that I have made a number of fox passes each year of my adult life. How do I keep it up? I started practicing when I was a very little baby. I was talking (full sentences) at 18 months, could count to 100+ at two, knew the alphabet and the various phonetic sounds the letters made by three and was reading at four (OK, it was just the newspaper comics and I had to look up a lot of words, but .....). The The alphabet skills and the early reading were compliments of my Grandmother C who baby sat me and my younger brother over a two year period when Mom was working rotating shifts. Dad was a law enforcement officer and worked a regular eight hour shift (Ha!), but with paperwork and court appearances that worked out to be about 60+ hours/week. When deep into a big case, he sometimes came home just 2-3 times a week.

My brother is a certified genius, but he is 2 1/2 years younger than I (I am only a baby genius, meeting Mesa's requirement only at the very bottom). He's responsible for pushing me because he was bugging me about words in the newspaper by the time HE was three.

Question 1: MADEIT3. You state that you live in the state of Kansas (Wow, that worked out pretty well). How is your current state, health wise? Question 1a. You said you lived in Kansas. I live in Missouri, but I live in Kansas City. Isn't it strange that Kansas City, Missouri is larger than Kansas City, Kansas? Just seems ironic somehow. If it's not too sensitive, which airport are you closest to? Wichita (major), Topeka (tiny), or Kansas City (large - MCI)?

Question 2: Anybody. How do you handle a jump or jumps in time? Do you just start another Chapter and put the month and year 200 years ago, or ahead? Do you do it in a preface? Do you use flashbacks and flash forwards? Which method do you think works best for you as a writer and as a reader (and, if you don't mind, why?).

Have a happy, safe and healthy weekend!

Healthy activity for the day? My wife and I filled a 50 gallon trash container and three of the big paper lawn bags with leaves from our front yard today. A little over three hours minus the times we had to take a break or my DW had to come and help me back up. When it was completed, we made up for it by having lunch and meditating for about an hour (When I meditate, I close my eyes to better focus on that which I am meditating). Occasionally I make loud noises through my nose and mouth. I don't know if that happened this afternoon or not, because my DW took a nap and fell asleep.

Good morning writers! Nothing like having to accept a kill fee because the clients changed their minds. Grrrrr...

Maybe I can use a piece on "why integrate medical and behavioral healthcare" with another client??

Hah! The thing about Medifast is I don't have to cook and I don't have to plan. Right now, that works for my life. In three months when I retire, I'll get back into food and cooking.

I can't remember ever being busier - I think they're going to get all my words before I retire!!

Incredibly busy at work and I'm headed out for the next two weeks, so this will be short. Decided to go back to Medifast for a couple of weeks, then do The Plan cleanse. Sometimes a plateau - or in my case creeping added pounds - need a bit of a shake up!!

Have a great day!

Today has been pretty good so far ( although it's not even 9AM yet). I wake up at 4:30 every morning and usually drag a bit, but not today. I hope I can keep my energy level up throughout the day and I don't crash.

I did a Walk Away the Pounds 2 mile DVD yesterday. I hadn't exercised in months and I am at a plateau so I wanted to add exercise back in. It felt really good!! I was so sweaty and was shocked that I became out of breath so quickly.

Anyway I'm just jibber jabbering now.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

I had sort of a bad weekend eating wise too. Nothing like veggie chips - who said they had anything to do with veggies?? But I spent most of Sunday out of doors. Looks like it will be the last wonderful day of the Fall.

Hope things go well for you today!!

Ah, wish I could help you with that, but sadly I'm not a parent yet.

I had a horrible weekend! I ate like I had never seen food! Saturday was bad, Sunday wasn't too bad, I got a little exercise in...so I'll live. I'm not beating myself up for it, but I totally felt like crap all weekend, I guess from not eating right.

I'm glad it's Monday and I'm stuck in my office :)

Today I'm looking at some old "tips" that I wrote in 2002 and 2003 about parenting. Time to freshen up some of those old ideas for parents today.

Any thoughts??

Warm as spring today. DH is putting up posts for the fence around the garden to keep the deer away. When it's done, I'll post some photos on my Blog. Hope all the writers out there are having a productive day today!!

This morning in Kansas is brisk rather than cold. Winds are in the forecast for this afternoon. And tomorrow? Could be a few snowflakes drifting our way. This weekend I'm working on an investment presentation for a small organization looking for some capitalization bucks. If it's successful, could be big news for that little company! Always exciting when what I write turns to gold for a company!

That's awesome IGNITEME! You definitely sound like your on a roll. emoticon !

It's cold here in south Louisiana this morning (we are not used to the cold haha)

So, basically, I just want to sleep all day.

I danced this morning for 15 minutes, jogged/walked up a hill pushing my grandbaby and walked almost a mile for 15 minutes, & took my measurements~

I'm doing great!

Hi IGNITEME! Glad you found us.

I'd like a nap too, but folks keep talking to me.

hmmmm, I found that I used to eat when I was stressed. Now though, I clean. Which is good i suppose! I was just stressed this AM at work so I picked up my office and took a quick walk around the building and it helped.

I also like to jump up and down when no one is around emoticon

I'm not really interested in writing a novel in a month - first of all, I'm not interested in writing a novel at all and second, in a month? So I've decided to start a chat here and if this is a faux pas, please forgive me!!

I know there are some technical writers out there. One of the things I do is write stress management tips (250 words or less) for a daily tip e-blast. So far, I've written about a thousand tips. Difficult to come up with stress management ideas, so I'd ask the team - got any great stress management techniques, skills, or strategies that you're willing to share?
