Going away for two weeks on vacation! Hurrah! The place has a pool which looks great but we will see if I can actually swim laps there. Going to swim tomorrow morning before we leave, just to get one last workout in.

Lynn, I still have a full-time job as a Director of Finance (I've been here since June), but I'm doing my own bookkeeping, accounting and tax practice on the side. Only a few clients right now, but I hope to build up slowly. And hubby's business of selling hand crafted lamps and candle holders is going well. We're not too busy!! LOL

Carol, when I lived in DC I listened to WAMU all the time!!! I don't know the show you refer to though, so now I'll have to check that out!

Dance class was fun last night. Dancing in front of a mirror in a tank top and leggings sure makes me see that I've put on some winter weight. Like Lynn says below, this time of year is so hard to take weight off!!! But, never fear, because March with more sunlight and warmth is right around the corner!! Woo hoo!!!

Have a great weekend everyone!!

JEN...Congrats on that football win! We were cheering for the Eagles. I like your 2nd string QB! He deserves to be a starter somewhere, but so does your other guy. What a privilege to have two great QBs! Anyway....I know as a Cub fan, what it's like to have a championship win where there hasn't been one in a while. For the Cubs, it was 108 years!!!! But we've had loads of basketball and hockey championships. The stinky Bears hasn't won a super bowl since 1985 and if they don't clean up their act soon, they will lose more and more fans to the once detested Green Bay Packers!

Heavy snow has blanketed our area.... but not as much as they forecasted. It's a heavy 5-6 inches so far, the heart attack kind of heavy. Warnings abound about going easy on the snow removal. We have a snow blower, fortunately. It's still coming down pretty hard and is actually quite beautiful! It's that, "It's a Wonderful Life" movie kind of snow! Pretty now, but ugly later when it goes through the melting process. Such slop! And hard to run in, that is for sure!

Hopefully, will post a photo or two later so you can see how deep it is. :D

Wow that is a lot of snow! Stay safe!

We've had a cold winter here near Philly but not much snow. Lots of football excitement though!

Carol....That's funny! We have double panes to keep both heat and cold out. :D It won't even hit 20 degrees today.

If it's drivable.....I will swim tomorrow too, Jahintzy.....But no biggie if I can't. I'm in no rush with this touchy shoulder issue.

They have now increased the forecasted amount of snow from 8-12 (and that's up from 6-10) to now, 9-14! I need to stop looking! The more I look, the worse it gets!

Hi folks,

It's been an odd week, but I got a swim Monday and will hit the y tomorrow. I teach my first community art class this Saturday! I'm excited and hopeful that I enjoy it, it's a good opportunity to get my foot in the door.

Hi! Yeah, ice sounds scary. I listen to Joshua Johnson in the morning on WAMU so I here the weather in DC every morning and it's just amazing to me! Brrrr. Here we are talking about getting retro-fit dual pane windows to help keep the heat out - lol.

HEATHER.... Nice to hear you are running a business. You've had some stressful jobs in the past. Not that running your own isn't stressful!!!! But if you are going to be stressed out, might as well be on YOUR terms! Best wishes to you. And I know what you mean about exercise in the dead of winter. I'm back at Weight Watchers...started in mid Dec so I wouldn't totally lose it during the holidays....In Jan, the leader said that a study done by WWs showed Jan and Feb tied for the hardest months for people to lose...NOT December as always believed. It's like a hibernation period!

Hi to Carol!!! 80s....wow that sounds nice!!! And here we are under a Winter Storm WARNING...no longer a watch! Up to a foot of snow is expected in the Chicagoland area from 6 PM tonight to 9 PM tomorrow night! We already have about six inches on the ground! Hadn't seen this deep of snow since the blizzard of 2011. We had 19 inches from that one storm. More snow here Sat afternoon, but ONLY 1-3 inches .....Good grief....MAKE IT STOP!

Hoping to sneak a run outside between these storms. Lightly snowing right now which is NOT part of the big one coming. I'll have to see. It's kind of icy out....so might swim instead and just hit the treadmill tomorrow or vice versa.

Hahaha...well, I think it got up to 80 here yesterday. We were all talking about it being beach weather...

We've refinished 2 bedrooms, the hallway, half the living room, dining, and nook. I've laid out canvas on the floor to start painting the walls. My upper back is sore, so I know I'm getting some real work in. I had to get another gallon and I have one and a quarter walls left. This weekend I am going to try to get most of the rest of the house painted. It's probably too ambitious...but you have to have goals, right?

Hi everyone!! I hope you all had a great weekend. I was so busy with my business and hubby's business, but it's a really good kind of busy! I'm happy to be building my business.

I also managed to get on the treadmill and I was really happy about that. Sometimes in the dead of winter it's just so cold and depressing that it's hard to be motivated for me. Once I get moving, I feel a lot better!!

Someday I'll get to a pool again.........someday my life will be a little more manageable.......

I hope you are all keeping your spirits up in the somewhat dreary winter weather! For me, it really is kinda hard sometimes.....but the exercise does help!!

Have a FUN and ACTIVE week!!!
