Hope everyone had a super weekend. I'm doing my usual monday morning cleaning. Got the house all decorated, so that's good. I love fall.

Finally a nice day today, after three days of rainy, crappy weather. I like those kind of days now & then, but not three in a row, esp. when on the weekend when everyone is home!!!

Hannah, have a wonderful holiday! And anyone else who is celebrating too!!

Okay, off to vacuum, will check in later.

Hello All!!!
Busy, busy weekend... add some rain to the mix and today I feel like :dz: . I know I should but I am not going to the gym today. I have a boat load of cleaning to do... laundry, washing the floors, dishes, scrubbing the bathroom top to bottom, rearranging and reordering the kiddos toys, changing bed sheets. So you see, no time for the gym :D . I don't want to miss it, but in a way i am glad not to go. I love the gym, I do... but being on this plateau and NOT loosing is driving me crazy. So yes, in itself I am having a lil pity party. :rolleyes:

Well off to chug me some coffe and figure out where to start... ACK! :eek:

Happy Monday!? Well, sorta ;)

I was SUPER busy this weekend...my sister came down for a visit. I spent the ENTIRE day on Saturday cleaning the house while my DH went to ride the roller coasters in Montreal. OH well...I HATE roller coasters...so I had a quiet day by myself. My sister arrived around 7pm and we had a late dinner. Yesterday was insanely busy! :spin:
We attended an art sale and purchased 3 pieces for our home. We did some shopping with my sister and them we went out for a late dinner. I had an awesome weekend, but it was SO tiring! :)

How was everyone else's weekend?

We have been hit by the mysterious viral fever in our house. Last week the baby had it and then come Sunday our oldest came down with it. Saturday was fun though. I am a little envious of your rain though. It was 100 yesterday. I am ready for some fall weather. Fall seems to be disappearing around here. I miss it.

Morning everyone!

Pam, I agree the first day of rain is fine. We had a blah weekend here too. I just stopped by marshalls on my way home for some garland, Spencer is really into decorating for halloween this year.

Christina, how are the boys? Is Dominic still working in your office?

Wifey, Pear, Riley, hope you girls have a good day!

I had to stay with the lady in the hospital last night, so I got to come home for the day. I gonna go shower and then maybe meet dh for lunch.

Have a great day everyone!

Hey Lauren! Hope the little guy feels better soon, it seems to be going around.

Christina - I live in nor cal in between Redding and Chico. You would think that I would get used to the heat. I miss coastal fog and rain. Crazy, I know.

Lauren - Thank goodness for Dragontales and Clifford!

The baby is napping so I think I will hit the treadmill now.

Good morning everyone!

BTW...I love Dragon Tales and Clifford as well. My oldest who is now 13 now grew up with all of that. Every morning after I dressed her (she was a Kindergartener) she would stand in front of the TV watching those shows until I was ready to go. Arther, Teletubbies, Sesame Street, Caillou, Dragon Tales, Sagwa...

Anyway, I have good news that I'm nervous about. My boyfriend wants me to meet his youngest son who is 11 years old. I will meet the oldest who is 15 at another time which is good because I don't think I could do both at the same time. I AM SO NERVOUS!! I get to meet him the the weekend of Nov. 3 and we're all going to the Redskins and Steelers game in D.C.

OK guys...I'm outta here. Have a good day!!!

Happy Monday!

My weekend was alright. Nothing too exciting. Been busy this morning. Doing laundry, running errands, and getting my daughter ready for school. Tonight I'm going to the hospital for the sleep study. I'm a little nervous about it for some reason.

I hope everyone is having a good Monday.

Christina S: Thanks! I did. My sister was visiting from North Bay, ON.

Alicia: You too, thanks!

Hi all,

Just working, working, working. I am in the midst of trying to find a new job and finish my dissertation. So fun.

rileyozzy - I am so jealous. I wish I had a treadmill.

I'm new to this forum... so i guess the daily chats are just that...

I had a great weekend. I went to a b-day party on Sat. A friend rented a bus and we dressed up in costumes. It was a lot of fun. I will post a pic once I download them from my camera... I also got a lot of exercise dancing. My legs are still sore.

I also had a baby shower on Sunday where I proably ate the calories I burned the night before but that is where I got motivated to sign up for a meal delivery program and this forum.... i want to have a baby and need to lose weight before I get pregnant.

Also need to find a husband but I think losing the weight is more important :) lol

Welcome Jolie4me!

Well I am done cleaning for the nite--- until the kidlets are sleeping anyways :yawn:. I may sweep the kitchen once over and finish up another load of wash. But. That. Is. It. :D
So I hopped on the scale today and am down a pound :carrot: ? WHAT?? Wowsers!! Yay!! I got to thinking too, that my 25lb loss ticker is a big jump, Maybe too big of a goal?? So I made myself a new goal of 20lbs instead... :cb: and if I can reach the last 5lbs loss that is an added bonus :wizard: :whoo: . That seems more realistic to me. I hope that this plateau is done and over and that I can end this Pity Party Guilt. Or I may start recruiting members... :gossip:

I hope all is well with you all, and that sickies leave soon if they are in your homes. Being sick is No Fun, espcially lil ones. :o

Jolie--- Sounds like you had a Fun weekend! :)

Asparagus--- Godd luck in the Job Search! :)

Barbarajean--- Best of luck in the Sleep Study. Why do you have to go? Well other then sleep problems... are they still figuring out what is going on?

Well I have an antsy kid hanging off of me, so I will end here. Wow, two posts from me today. Not an usual occurance. :sunny:

09-29-2008, 08:06 PM
Sorry for the smilies overlaod in my above reply--- I got a little carried away. See, no smilies in this reply.

I hope I can stay motivated... it's only day 2 and I really haven't started doing anything too different. Just prepared. I only ate a sub sandwich today and a small ice cream bar... I entered it into fitday and they said I still had a deficit of calories burned so we'll see.
