Here we are---- :wave:
Everyone is invited to come and post here.
We are a great bunch---crazy, but great.
We have all weighed-in on Thursdays at one time or another. And, we follow WW.
Give us a try and you'll stay forever.

Texas has had way too much rain.
I for one am ready for some heat. Did I say that!!??!!

Anyone have another recipe to share?
I have a WW mac n cheese that I'll post.

Tammy, how is the new van?
Susan, when will you work again? How is Pat doing?
Chantal, you haven't written since you had your infection. I hope it's all gone.
Maureen, you are way too quiet.
Dee, let us know when you come home. We miss you.
Brittany, you are silent.
Terry, thanks for keeping us up-to-date on the weigh-in results thread.

Tina, more heat? Are you nuts???? I am dying here. I really don't do very well in the heat. I do agree that you have had enough rain though. Are you feeling any better?

Recipes involve cooking. Isn't that a profound statement? lol We did chicken, pineapple, and mushrooms on the grill last night. Delicious! I also made some cole slaw, so that was the only "bad" part of the meal.

The van is great! I told the guys I don't want to take it on the trip that Melissa, Carol, and I are taking for a few days because I don't think I can parallel park it. We had a van before, but this one seems so much bigger to me. I haven't told M and C that we have a new van. Just waiting to see if they notice when I pick them up. Carol has driven the past two trips we've gone on lately, and we don't take Melissa's car because it is so hard to get in and out of.

We're supposed to go to a family reunion tomorrow, but I think we are going to pass on it. Bob is working at the Eagles here in town for several hours, and I'm just still worn out from the vacation. I have to be ok to leave on Sunday with Carol and Melissa.

Tina
07-06-2007, 11:57 PM
Tammy, Where are y'all going? It's not to that b&b is it? I'm thinking that is only during the holidays.
Sorry about all your heat. One thing about all this rain is that the temps are in the 70's. During the day, I've had the front door open and the a/c off. Of course, I'm using the dryer so the bill probably won't be any lower. :dizzy:

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

We are going to Holmes County, Ohio. There are Amish settlements in that area, so we will be hitting lots of shops. We are staying at a B (no breakfast). We have been there a couple times before, but it has been at least 6 years we think. I'm sure we will see many changes. We leave in the morning, and we'll be home sometime on Wednesday.

I have the AC turned off right now, but I'm sure I'll have it on later this morning.

We've had some rain lately, but we could really use more. It has been so dry and hot. Hope your rain stops because I know you've had way too much.

Hope everyone has a great weekend! In case I don't get back on here before I leave in the morning, behave yourselves while I'm gone!!

I found ya'll. :) Thanks Tina!!!

It has rained so much here. Everything is nice and green but it's too humid!!!

Pat and I had a fun week. We went up to the OKlahoma border (1hour away) to the Indian casino the other day. We had a lot of fun.

I'm going to a sign lanugage workshop all week. YUCK!! I had forgotten about it. Actually I am being bad, I was suppose to go tonight from 5-9.

Tammy, I don't think I could drive that van and park it. :) Have fun on your trip!!!!!

Tina, I'm going up to the jewelry store next week for a day or so to help clean up. Nothing much....

Tina
07-09-2007, 12:13 PM
Happy Monday,
It's not raining! I'm so happy. It didn't rain yesterday, either. Must be something wrong. :lol:

Susan, I'm glad you had so much fun. You didn't mention how much money you won. You did play for us too! :D

Tammy, I hope you are having a fantastic time. I'd love to go to Amish country. A lady at church said they went recently and stayed on a farm. It was meticulously clean and neat. I'd like to go through the shops.

Maureen, how are you?
Chantal, Brittany, Terry, Dee, Sis, everyone-----post!

:flow1:

Howdy,

Well, I have a sign language workshop all week. Today was actually fun!

Tomorrow is Seamus' 3rd birthday. I know that there is going to be the biggest birthday party in Heaven!!!! I'll be sending him balloons along with a note. I'll make one of his favorite meals of french toast. When I was pregnant he would love it. I think we had french toast once or twice a week :)

Tina, the casino won all the money! Like normal! How are you feeling? All this rain has a bunch has my allergies working overtime.

Tammy, Tina and I would love to go to the Amish country.... maybe we could go there for our trip

Hope everyone is doing well! Please post and give us an update on the happenings.

Tina
07-10-2007, 12:08 AM
I am feeling much better, thank you.
I would love to plant some things in the front flower beds. It's just too hot to be out there---any time of the day. It's definitely summer. Somehow I seem to forget every year how hot it's going to be. :lol:

Susan, it's so hard to believe that tomorrow will be 3 years.
You are a special, strong lady. Lots of hugs and kisses are coming your way.
:hug:

:flow1:

Tina
07-11-2007, 11:22 AM
It's Wednesday, can you believe it :o

Susan, how did you do yesterday? I hope it was more of a celebration than a sad time.
Are you frying up there? It is sooo hot here.
We had the car in the shop for a few days. Yesterday, first day back, it ran hot on me. We returned it and the guy put in a new thermostat and didn't charge us. He did it in just under an hour (before closing). So hopefully, that was all the problem. I'm not going very far from home today.

Is everyone drinking plenty of water in this weather??? I hope so.

Tina
07-11-2007, 11:25 AM
Brandy, Britanny, Leeann, Dee, Maureen, where are y'all???????

Hi Tina,

Believe it or not, I had a good day yesterday. I went to my sign language class, and at times I was a little distracted but it was more that I was tired. Lunch time came around and 2 of my friends and I went out to lunch. I treated for a celebration. My family all called. I took out flowers to the cemetery and released 3 balloons.

Then for dinner, I made his favorite meal of french toast. I even has some grapefruit before dinner because he loved it too. He would really move around then.

All in all, the day was good. I emailed the doctor and 2 nurses that I've stayed in contact with and thanked them for all of their care and love.

Thank you for always being there!!!!

Yes, I feel like we are cooking here! I start sweating the second I walk outside because of the humidity.

Tammy
07-12-2007, 06:33 AM
Susan, Bob and I have gone to southern Indiana to a couple of casinos there. We always have a fun time. I like to watch the people, and I also like the video poker machines. lol I hope your workshop is informative, and more fun than you thought to keep you interested!! I can't believe it has been three years already. Thinking of you!!

Tina, you would have had fun in the shops. One woman said she was going to close her shop for the day and just take off with the three of us because she thought we were having just way too much fun!

I bought several things, and I was very pleased with all of the purchases. I bought a Welcome thing to put at the front door, a tall garden stake with a heart with 2 birds and a small gazing ball on it, a new over the shoulder "healthy back" bag, a smaller purse with a long handle that will fit and match the shoulder bag (Vera Bradley type only less expensive), a cutting board with suction cups on the back, several different types of cheeses that are made there, a couple things of chocolate for Bob and Tim, a couple of t-shirts for me (one says something about being retired), a book about the Amish (I have so many questions about them!!), and I'm sure something else that I can't remember.

I have to be honest with you about something. I really could have lost a friend this weekend. At the inn, we were talking about the vacation that Bob, Tim, and I just took (they asked about it). Melissa started in on how she couldn't understand how we could afford to take so many trips. She and her family never take trips, etc. Then when we would be shopping, she would comment about how expensive everything was, how she would have to mortgage her house to buy anything. I started feeling guilty about the vacations that we've taken, and then I was feeling guilty because I was buying things. At one point I was looking at the smaller purse and actually put it back on the shelf because I didn't want to listen to her. Carol did the same thing with a purse at the same place. We had gone on to another store, and I decided that I WANTED that purse. I told them I'd be back and what I was doing. Carol came with me. I finally admitted to her how upset that I was getting and found out she was feeling the same way. I had to tell her something because I was crying. Now that is ridiculous!

Melissa and her husband both work, and I know he makes great money. They always have new vehicles, and I know they get new furniture in their home every few years. She spends money too but in a different way. The furniture we bought when we moved here was the first living room furniture that we had purchased since l991. We were also still using a living room suite that we bought in 1983. I wanted to bring that stuff up to her but I kept my mouth shut. You would have been proud.

By the way, I do know her daughter bought a REAL Vera Bradley purse that cost $30 more than mine. Wonder if she ever says anything to her?

Sorry I'm sounding bitter here, but I guess I just had to get it off my chest. Thanks for listening!!

Lunch today with the teacher's group. I think it will be a small group because a couple are sick and a couple are on vacations. Even if there are only 2 of us there, we'll have a good time.

Tina
07-12-2007, 11:46 PM
Welcome home, Tammy!
I am proud of you for keeping your mouth shut with Melissa. The nerve of some people. :p:p:p
On a happy note--your purchases sound great. I need one of those cutting boards with suction cups. Mine wants to fly across the kitchen. :lol:
How did your new van run?

Susan, when does your school start? Ours are finally back to starting in Sept.

:flow1:

Tammy
07-13-2007, 12:03 PM
Thanks! Bob was very proud of me too, and I know Carol was. She was having trouble keeping her mouth shut also.

I found this website on the label on the cutting board. I haven't checked it out, so I'm not sure what is there. www.architecproducts.com I'm like you with the cutting boards running away. We had one once that curved over the edge of the counter. We loved it. You could put hot pans on it right off the stove. It was great. It broke of course. We found others similar to it, but no hot things can go on it.

The van was great! I really do like it. We had a console put in yesterday between the front two seats. That will come in handy.

Tim goes back Aug. 10 for percussion auditions. I sure hope he makes the band. We already bought season football tickets! I won't want to go if he isn't in the band. If he makes it, we'll take the rest of his stuff over to school that weekend or sometime the next week. He'll just take the basics with him that day. If he doesn't make the band, he'll be home until the end of the next week.

Tammy
07-13-2007, 07:22 PM
Here is a website you might want to check out. This is where Carol, Melissa, and I spent our time.

www.OhioAmishCountry.com

We stayed at a place called Sojourners Lodge. I don't know if it is somewhere on the site or not.

Tim is doing a ride-along with a policeman in a nearby town tonight. Bob is up at the club, and I'm doing laundry. Late to do laundry, but we all took showers late. I'm planning to run to Wal Mart when the washer is finished, then I'll dry the stuff when I get home.

Tina
07-13-2007, 07:28 PM
Thanks so much for the website.
I'll have to check it out.

I'm late doing things, too. I just vacuumed the bedroom and changed the sheets. :lol:

Hi Everyone!

Tina, thanks for the concern, I'm doing just fine. My kidney infection is all cleared up, thank goodness, that was no fun at all.

Honestly, I haven't been coming on here b/c I have not been OP at all...I haven't weighed myself in a while and I'm quite confident that I've gained back at least 5 or 10 lbs, not sure though. I just wish I could take a summer hiatus and start back up in the fall when there's nothing else to do. Anyone else know what I mean? Other than that, everything is good. Dave and I have (impulsively) decided to take a trip to France this October. We're going with another couple and we've rented an apt in Paris for the week. So, I guess I'll really have to get myself back on track.

Anyway, I hope everyone else is well! Take care!

Tina
07-14-2007, 11:09 AM
Chantal---Paris---WoW
You must take us, too. I took 4 years of French in high school. I'm sure I remember some of it. :lol:
Renting an apartment will let you get the real flavor of France. Oh, I'm so envious.
Okay, you've got to get yourself OP, starting tomorrow. :D Get back into it slowly. Cut back on the drinks and drink more water. Don't eat fried foods, eat more veggies. Etc., etc., etc.

How's everyone else today??? I had planned on going to an outlet mall, out-of-town. I see on the radar that it's pouring there and heading our way. 'Don't want to drive on the highway in rain. Boo :(
I guess I'll just go exercise.

:flow1:

Tammy
07-14-2007, 06:03 PM
France????? Count me in!!!! lol What a wonderful trip you'll have!!! Tim was in France when he traveled with the Ohio Music Ambassadors a couple years ago. Beautiful pictures.

I've done ok today. I tried to balance checking and savings account things, and there was a $1500.00 mistake in our checking account. I almost cried. Well, Bob had been to the bank and withdrawn $1500 because he thought he was going to Tampa to visit his brothers. He had forgotten that he did it (duh), the money is in one of his dresser drawers. Anyway, it was supposed to come out of savings and not checking. Why he didn't mark it down, I'll never know. He went to the bank, and they put the $$ back into the checking so now I don't have to panic because it was lower than we usually keep it. He has been so forgetful about simple things. I've mentioned it to him, but it doesn't do any good because he doesn't think he is.

We are taking an impulse trip after church tomorrow, and we'll be back on Tuesday. We're heading to one of the gambling boats in southern Indiana. It's close to Cincinnati and some malls there.

Wish we would hear from everyone.

Tina
07-14-2007, 06:15 PM
Everyone is traveling but me!!!!! :tantrum:
Susan goes to a gambling place, Chantal is going to Paris and now Tammy is going gambling. :(
I don't want to gamble, I just want to go somewhere.

Terry, maybe you and I should go some place. :)

I've done good today, too.

auntie
07-14-2007, 11:59 PM
Hey there,

Ok now the gambling place I go to is an hour away and we were only there a couple of hours. so not really a vacation. I want to go some place too!!!!!

Chantal, Paris, how fun!!!! We did Paris in a day about 6 years ago when my husband was working in England for the week and I went along.

Tammy, I am very proud of you for not saying anything because I got mad just reading your post. You have worked hard to be able to take trips, etc.... plus it's none of her business what you do. Thanks for the website too.... but REALLY Tina and I want you to take us with you next time :) Have fun on your trip with Bob! Hope you win BIG!!!

Tina, Glad you are feeling better! My allergies have been bad since we've had so much rain. I go back to school on August 20 and the kids come on the 27th. I feel like my summer is just starting with all that has gone on. I'm glad that we go back late this year!!!

Well, I'm cleaning the house or at least trying to, I'm not getting much done. Pat's playing tonight, I'm babysitting his friend's puppy that has been here for 2 weeks. She goes home tomorrow. It will be quiet without her. I told Pat I was going to keep her and his friend could get another dog. He said "Ok, I like that idea."

Tammy
07-17-2007, 09:55 PM
Are you all sitting down? Our trip was a success. We brought home $2800 more than we took! Can you believe it????? The 2nd night, our room was free, our breakfast was free, and out lunch yesterday was at a discount. I think I like that place!! They also have Ben and Jerry's ice cream there. lol The first night was ok at another hotel/casino, but it wasn't where we won and had all the goodies.

Susan, I agree that it isn't any of her business what I do and where I go. I just hope if it happens again, I'll be able to be quiet!

Tina
07-17-2007, 10:53 PM
Welcome home, Tammy. Boy, what a fantastic trip, with winnings to boot.

It's been so quiet around here.
I hope everyone is well and having fun away from the computer. :lol:

auntie
07-17-2007, 11:03 PM
Welcome home Tammy!!! WOW, ya'll did hit it big! YEA :) I'm glad ya'll had fun.

Tina, is it raining down there? We have clear weather until this coming weekend. It's suppose to rain again.

I've gone to 2 cycling classes this week. I'm going to one tomorrow that is an hour and half. It's suppose to burn lots of fat. I'll let you know if I can walk tomorrow :)

Tina
07-18-2007, 12:10 AM
Woah, Susan--don't overdo it. That sounds like a very long time.
Yes, it is raining here!!! I don't think it's rained this much for this long during the summer. I am so tired of it!!! :)

Today I used my 2.5 lb weights to try to help my arms. I need to get rid of the flab. :o

:flow1:

auntie
07-18-2007, 10:25 AM
I will let you know how I survive. The only good thing is that this is a fat burning class so the intensity isn't too bad. It will be new to me.

I guess Mitch has decided he is finished with training me. I'm not sure. He called last night but wants me to go with him to pick out a ring for his girlfriend. I'm like what about training me. I think right now he has too much going on with a new job, etc....... I'm going to ask him when I'm up at the gym.

Tina, it's never rained here as much as it has this summer. We've almost broken our year record, in just a few months. However, it is nice having the grass REALLY green.

Tammy, how are you feeling? Make sure you get some rest!!!! Don't blow all that money in one place :) I'm so happy for you.

Tammy
07-18-2007, 11:48 PM
I still think we all need to get together someday. What are you all doing tomorrow??? lol

We've had rain off and on, but it really hasn't helped much. The lawns are pretty brown around here.

Tina, I never totally got rid of the underarm flab, but the water aerobics class sure helped. I signed up for the class this summer, and I haven't made it to one yet. I guess I shouldn't have signed up. It started when we left for vacation, then it was TOM, then I went with Carol and Melissa. I feel funny going now since the class is half over.

Susan, I've heard of those classes, but I've never attended one. I don't know if I could do it.

I've been hurting, and I know that it is my own fault. I haven't been getting the rest that I know that I need because I'm always doing something. This weekend won't be any help because it's an Emmaus Weekend and I'll be helping out in the kitchen and other things. I'm also on a Relay For Life team, and it is this weekend. I'll be busy with that too. I have a card beside the computer with my crazy schedule for the weekend. I do have the things for today marked off, so that's a start.

I took some things to the consignment shop today, and I had $27 waiting for me!! Woo hoo! I bought a shirt while I was there ($6). It was brand new! It still had the tags from K-Mart on it. I also bought jammies. Bob thinks it's gross because I'll wear someone else's jammies. They look like they have never been worn. $4

The money from the casino (most of it anyway) went into our savings account. We'll be getting a bill for the fall semester soon, so you know where that $ will be going.

I bought a shirt on our trip that says RETIRED. Under that it says, "Earned it, living it, loving it." I wore it today for the first time and received many comments on it. All positive. I met with Melissa for our Emmaus Share Group. That's the first I've talked to her since the trip, so I was a bit nervous. It went fine.

Good luck at weigh in tomorrow!! I want to move my butterfly! Maybe I shouldn't have moved it all the way back to zero, but I guess starting from there will be ok. I know in my mind that I'm still down some pounds from where I was several years ago. (33 to be exact)

Tina
07-19-2007, 02:30 PM
I was thinking that we should all meet at one of those spas in Arizona. Then, it occurred to me that it's way too hot in Arizona. We wouldn't want to get out and do any shopping or sightseeing. Oh well, just a thought. :D :dizzy:
:)

It's raining again. Duh, what's new.
I feel bloated today.

What's up with everyone???

Tammy
07-19-2007, 04:46 PM
The spa sounds great, but I agree about the heat. And shopping would be a must!!!!!

It has been dreary here all day. Sprinkles off and on.

I think everyone else is out shopping without us.

Tina
07-19-2007, 05:48 PM
Some rain here, too. Mainly, it's just been cloudy and grim. Summer should be sun with a few clouds mixed in.

Tammy, how are you feeling today?

Susan, you haven't posted. I wonder if all that cycling did you in. :lol:

Maureen, where are you, girl???

auntie
07-19-2007, 09:49 PM
Hi,
I ran errands today then I had lunch with my girlfriend. Later in the day, I watch my student while her mom ran an errand. We had fun.

I've had a headache all day. I finally laid down about 6 and just woke up. I'm not sure what happen to the tv it went to a blank channel, Pat is having a business dinner so he didn't change it. It was nice an quiet. Headache is still there! It's just about that time of month.

No cycling today. I took a break!

I agree about Arizona, way too hot!!!! We should go some place though. It would be a blast!!!

Oh, Amy's daughter has mono, she is only 10. Poor baby!!!!! I had it in high school and was really sick! Plus I took a lot of ribbing on kissing too because I had a boyfriend, luckily he didn't get it.

Tammy
07-19-2007, 10:17 PM
Tina, I have spent quite a bit of the day napping which I know that I have to do to get myself back up to par. I plan to go to bed early tonight so I can rest up for all of the stuff going on this weekend. I never sign up to work on the Emmaus weekends in the kitchen, I just show up. They know that I come when I am feeling ok.

Susan, I hope your headache is gone and you are feeling better. I agree about Amy's daughter! Poor thing!! I had it in college. I slept through one of my finals!

Tina
07-22-2007, 08:37 PM
I'm not sure if this will even post.
Has anyone had problems today? Each time I have come here today, it says I must "log in." If I don't, I see ads everywhere.

Hey, it didn't rain yesterday. We were just drying up and it sprinkled this afternoon. I might turn into a mushroom. :lol:

Tammy
07-22-2007, 09:48 PM
This is the first I've been on, and I didn't have a problem. I like mushrooms Tina!!!

We are leaving on Tuesday morning for Florida. Bob's older brother has been ill, and we decided we need to go while we still can. We'll be gone a little over a week. Not looking forward to the drive, but the new van should be comfortable for the ride.

I might take my scales with me to keep track of things. Maybe I'll hide them so Bob and Tim don't know.

Tina
07-22-2007, 11:14 PM
Hmm... I didn't have anymore trouble here tonight. Who knows!

Tammy, I'm so sorry about Bob's brother. I hope he gets better. That will be a long trip. Y'all be really, really careful. Having the new van is good!

Next month, we are going to North Carolina to see Larry's brother (and crazy wife). His brother has the symptoms of alzhiemers. He is only 56 years old.
We are flying. A car trip is much too far and time consuming. Larry can't be away from work for that long.

Okay, where is everyone? We keep asking but no one shows up.

Tammy
07-23-2007, 12:35 PM
Tina, Bob's brother has cancer (at least we think he does). He refuses to go to a doctor. With 3 of us driving, it will make it better. We are staying overnight in GA on the way down and again on the way home.

Where will you be in NC? When will you be there? How long will you be there?
I'm retired now, and I could always make a trip there. Let me know!!

I agree! Where is everyone?????

auntie
07-23-2007, 10:27 PM
Hi,
Hope everyone is doing well! I have been doing pretty good with my exercising. I'm hoping it will make a differendce when I weigh in on Thursday. I'll let you know.

Tammy, I'm sorry about Bob's brother. My student's grandmother had cancer and refused treatment too. It's a tough call on what I would do. Guess it depends on all the odds.

Tina, I've been to North Carolina once. it was beautiful. We went there to a family reunion when we first got married.

I got a new battery for my car. that was pretty exciting :)

Tammy
07-24-2007, 12:17 AM
I want to take the scales to Florida with us. Bob and Tim think I'm weird. With Bob's brother, we don't even know if it is cancer because he has never been to a doctor for a diagnosis. I'm not sure what the disease/syndrom is where you don't go anywhere? Anyway, his brother has not left his house/yard since 1979. I'm serious.

I agree about NC being beautiful. One of my cousins and her family live there.

Wow! A new battery!! You and Tim are really doing exciting things for your cars today!! He got new front brakes!!

We are leaving at 5:00 in the morning, so I need to go get some sleep.
Take care and behave.

Tina
07-24-2007, 12:43 AM
Good luck with the scales on Thursday, Susan. A new car battery, not fun.
We just had to have new belts put on our car.

Tammy, where in NC do your relatives live?
My father-in-law came from NC. It's a long way from TX.

Not much going on here. Just trying to stay OP

Tina
07-24-2007, 05:34 PM
Hi friends,
It's another beautiful day here ..... No Rain. It's marvelous. :carrot::D:carrot:
I hope all are having a good day and are staying OP.

:flow1:

auntie
07-24-2007, 11:17 PM
Hi Tina,
It looks like it's just us. Not sure where everyone is!!! Hope they are doing something fun!

I got my new battery and now my car starts ALL the time. Yea!!!!

I went for a massage today at the school here in town. It felt so good because I have so many knots in my back and neck. I could tell my headache was coming back. i think I'm going to get one later in the week too.

My in laws are coming in town tomorrow. I think they will be here only over night. they are on their way home from West VA.

Hope everyone is doing good.

Hi all. I haven't posted in A VERY LONG TIME. I have to say I haven't been doing well weightwise. I have been thru a lot in the last year and have totally blown being OP. I weighed myself this morning and I am up about 20 lbs over what my signature says. :( We lost our mom earlier this year and I kind of spiraled out of control foodwise. I know I have to get back on track because I am not feeling good anymore, and have no energy to do the things I was doing before. My BP, while not dangerously so, is creeping back to the high level. I haven't had my blood sugar checked in a while but I probably am creeping up there too. Anyways, on a better note, I am trying to get myself together and do what I need to do for me and my family. :) Sorry my first post back sounds so bummed. I am doing better, and will continue to try to get it together. I hope everyone has a great day, take care......... Sis

Hi,

Sis, we are so glad you posted. I'm so sorry about your Mom. I don't know what it's like to lose a parent but I do know the pain from losing your only son. I see my parent age alot these days. Know that we are here for you "NO MATTER WHAT". Try and be good to yourself. I wish you peaceful and gentle days ahead.

I went for a massage yesterday. I just couldn't take it anymore. (Oops, already told ya'll that) Today, my back is sore. I think I'll go next week for another one.

Tina, are you getting the rain that San Antonio is getting?

:carrot: Welcome Home to you, Sis!!!
We are soooo happy you are back with us. :carrot:
On a serious note, I, too, am so sorry about your mother's death.
You have had a hard year. But, you are a strong person. I know you are!

Take it easy and you'll be back OP in no time. Keep posting.

Susan, fortunately, we're not getting rain. There's some "high" or "low" that has kept it away for two days. "They say" that the rain is coming now. :(
Next week, get a gentler massage. :lol:

Chantal, when is your trip to Paris?
Maureen, come on and let us know what's happening.

Good morning,
Well, the rain is back. On the bright side, I haven't had to water the grass all summer---and that's a first.

Tammy, how are you doing? Do tell us that you made it down to Florida okay. How is your bil?

The rain is back here too. Our grass is so pretty. I mowed it this afternoon and now it's raining.

I lost 3 1/2 pounds this week. I'm trying really hard. Hopefully I will keep going. I take one step forward and 5 steps back.

Congratulations, Susan!!!!!
I envy your loss. I haven't had any energy this week and have not exercised. I know that's not good. Next week.....
Rain, I am so tired of rain. Our grass needs mowing but the yard is too soggy.

Sis, I'm so sorry about your mother. I lost both of my parents about 9-10 years ago.

We are in Tampa, and it is very hot. I don't like hot!!!! Bob's brother is doing better than the other brother let on. He is in good spirits, cracking jokes, and he isn't staying in bed all day like we were told. We are still glad that we came because you never know from one day to the next what will happen.

I'm meeting a friend of mine from high school on Monday. She lives near Orlando and works at Disney. We're meeting partway for both of us. Tim is going with me so I don't get lost!!

Tammy, it's so good to hear from you. Have fun on your trip Monday. Good thing you're taking Tim. :) I'd probably get lost myself.
It's hot here, too. That's why we are called "The Air Conditioned City."

Hi all. Hope everyone is doing well. I have been doing MUCH better the last few days foodwise. I have been making better food and portion choices. I think I am getting back my incentive. Time will tell. :)
Congratulations on the great weightloss Susan! What a wonderful feeling when you are trying so hard and are able to see the success. :)

I wish we could have some of your rain here, Tina, we need it. We are going to hit back up in the 90's this week. Yuck! :( We might get some rain later this week, hopefully.

Well I hope everyone has a great week. Take care.......Sis

Hi all,
Sis, bravo for getting back on track. I know it isn't easy. You can do it!!!!!

Susan, how is the exercising going? How are your parents? You haven't mentioned them in awhile.
Is Amy feeling okay?

Tammy, how was your trip yesterday? I'm sure you are tired out. When do y'all start home?

I've been feelin puny since Friday. Maybe I need a vacation. :lol:
