I hope everyone is doing well today. There isn't too much to report here. I have been exercising daily & I am back to paying more attention to what I eat. I really get tired of worrying about weight. But I do think if I could ever get to goal I could keep myself there now. I have learned a lot in this very slow long weight loss endeavor. It's just getting there that seems so hard, if you know what I mean.
Enough rambling.....Have a good day! :)

Hi Dolphin...you are doing much better than me. I have learned how to maintain. I am stuck at 178 for 5 weeks!!! I will get back to walking and biking this weekend. Chris's dad will be staying w/ us for a month, so I will get back to cooking nightly. And I know I will be walking just to get away from everyone!!!! I will spend the weekend cleaning. I have 2 five hour shifts left and then I clean and organize big time!!! I am gonna try and check out a tops meeting. My face feels better but my nose is still running. audri/flower

I am going to try to keep this short to see if it posts.
I really shouldn't even be here. I ran out of time a few days ago. I went to the mall on Sunday to try to gather points and post here and it wouldn't let me. I thought it was the rain. I went back yesterday and it still wouldn't let me.
This am I tried Juno and no luck so just for a lark (it was 5:30 IN THE MORNING) and I couldn't go back to bed, I tried Bluelight. It said I had 30 minutes left....Go figure. I have been using that 30 minutes all day. Whatever. I won't look a gift horse in the mouth!
Still exercising but I have eaten sugar like crazy for the last few days.

Well, the excitement around here was 6.8 earthquake at 10:55 AM. It was very long & strong. We are all ok though so I am happy. Everyone in the area is a little shaken up. The epicenter was 11 miles from town.
Flower, How did the interviews go?
Things are going well in the weight loss & exercise effort here so that is good. I hope you all have happy things to report too.

Dolphin...So Glad to hear everything is fine! :)
I didn't feel the quake because I was driving in the car with my mother-inlaw...we were about 3 minutes from my house when the quake hit.....I opened the door and the phone was ringing....I ran to catch the call....It was my husband....He called to see if everything was okay and I was shocked to hear we just had a earthquake....he was on the 5th floor of some large building in Portland and was very shaken/upset.
The weather here has been 'Very Nice' and I have been doing some serious Walk-abouts! :cool:

Cookie,do you live in Portland? I'm glad you
are ok too.
03-01-2001, 10:48 AM
Cokie & Dolphin-so very glad you were only shaken and not bruised!!!
I have the visual assistant interview tomorrow at 12 and the designer interview Friday at 2. I will log on afterwards and tell ya how they went. I am not sure what to wish for, so we will see how the interviews go....
I finally got my blue light service back. I couldn't log on for forever. Good thing too cause netzero is now messing up!!!! Go figure!! Well, since Griffin is sleeping, I should take advantage too. audri
03-02-2001, 09:34 PM
hello. I had interview #1 and I have #2 at 2 today. I had to reaarange living room for a new fish tank last night. Didn't even get to the boys room. Gotta go shower and pretty myself up for job interview and then take baby in for recheck, come home and go to interview. Then I gotta get hustling on the house. Tomorrow is the races. I don't even have time. Then Sunday I finish the house. Hopefully he comes in real late! (Grampa Dale) Talk to ya when I have a free moment. flower/audri

Hi, just wanted to say good luck flower!
We felt the quake here too, strong enough that I thought it was just a local thing not something that much stronger 150 miles away! I'm glad Dolphin and her family are all fine.
Kare- that $4.95 thing was At&t world net, but they don't have a line in my town so I can't get it. I guess that leaves me with free juno that kicks me off all the time or $9.95 per month Juno that I know nothing about...I hope it would be worth the extra $. Lately it has bee so hard to get on at all that it seems fair, and that is the best price above free that I've found.... hmmmm, decisions! I think if I get a few more storks rented out I'll feel more like making it a business expense...we shall see
I think I may be getting close to having my exercise and diet act back together, but should give it at least 3 weeks to be sure! ;-) Have a great and healthy weekend everyone!

Hi friends. My computer crashed on Friday and I lost everything. Thank goodness I had a freebie AOL disc laying around so I could get back on line. I lost my email address book. So, if ya could email me...I would love ya FOREVER!!!! Not that I won't already, but ya won't get email.
The 2nd interview went well. Well, the interview portion anyways. My cascade boquet wasn't made as well as it could have been. I was sooooo nervous, I did better on my boutineer and my centerpiece and vase, were fine. So, we wait and see.... The perks of that job are wonderful.
I cleaned Ri's room on Sat, Cam's on Sunday. Grif did not want to sleep last night. Chris is getting the 2nd cold that has gone around my house. Dale should be here tomorrow or Wednesday. I need to get back on my diet. But I haven't gained any...
03-06-2001, 10:18 AM
Hello girlfriends. Where are you all? I miss ya!!! Come and post!!! I got my puter 1/2 way running. I am still missing lots. Karefree, I need the web address for the answering machine. I miss it!!!! I feel guilty on puter w/out it. Dale's arrival is tomorrow night. Snow delayed it by a few days. I am finishing the living room today, while Chris works on the rec room. Dishes and laundry are on going things. I would like to scrub the kitchen. I washed the boys walls and the new gust room walls and floors. Furniture is all rearranged. Spring cleaning came early. I sent thank you notes out to both jobs yesterday. Maybe it will help.... flower/audri
03-06-2001, 04:34 PM
I hope I'm not starting a new thread here....
Anyway, goodness Flower, your house is gonna be so clean! You should be caught up for a long time! I hope you hear back on your interviews soon. I think the thank-you's were a good idea. I really hope you find something perfect!
Well, I 've been suffering with a bad cold for a few days, along with the rest of my family. But I think we may finally be getting over it. Exercise has been out since I can hardly breathe, but at least I lost my apetite too!
My taxes are almost done on a good note, and I think we'll be getting some back so that is always nice!
Wishing you all the best of health and happiness!

Hello. I am sick w/ a sinus cold allergies. My immune system sucks after this pregnacy!!! I should go pick up some more vitiams. On the good side, my house is clean! How is everyone doing? flower/audri
03-08-2001, 06:16 PM
Dolphin....I live within driving distance to Portland:)
Audri/flower....So sorry to hear that you are still not feeling any better and am also GLAD that you have a clean house!(mine is NOT clean);)
I only have a few more weeks left with the 'Smart Choices' Health classes and am 'Glad' I enrolled in the program....Last week we had a guest speaker talk to us about positive/neagative emotions and related eating due to those emotions....I realized that I push myself too hard and am trying my best not to....Next week we are all going to bring in a sample of our favorite lowfat meal and am very excited to taste new items that the other classmates will bring in.:)
"Walking On Sunshine!":cool:
03-08-2001, 11:40 PM
Cookie...glad to see ya! :) Those classes sound like fun. I am glad ya made the time. I am thinking of trying the AT &T 7 plan. $7 internet a month and long distance 7 cents a minute. I will call and check into it tomorrow. Gotta remember to call and go for my car check up too. Cameron and Grif go for check ups on Monday. Maybe it is good I haven't started working yet. My astrology says I will get out of debt by mid April so something will happen soon. I made a turkey-ham tonight. I liked it. Much leaner than ham. Dale bought some groceries today. Lots of fruit...he scored a few points. My dog ate an entire pan of fudge brownies. Not good. The were up too. Guess they smelt so good, even she couldn't resist!!!! She took it outside to eat. The were in a glass pie pan. Not an easy feat!! Well, I guess I can't ruin my diet w/ them now! audri
03-10-2001, 10:42 AM
Hello girlfriends. I know the kf has run out of internet time, but how about the rest of ya? I am talking to myself here. I am not doing good w/out the support! Post at least a hi okay! audri/flower
03-10-2001, 03:12 PM
Things have changed around here! I hope I am replying and not making a new thread!!
Audri, the name of the answering machine is callwave. I don't have the address but you should be able to get there by just typing in www.callwave.com
I have looked into the 4.95 isp and it is only for 100 hours. Not enough for this family. AT&T has one for 7 a month called 7/7. It is suppose to be unlimited svc. I will tell you if I find out anything else, MW.
Sounds like everyone is doing fine. I am eating chocolate like there is no tomorrow. AHHHHH! Not exercising either.
Hope to check in more often.
03-11-2001, 01:03 PM
I am happy to report that I am back OP!!! I am also going to the docs today to make this darn cold go away!!!! flower Karefree...one day soon I am going call AT & T for their 7/7 plan. I have aol for March but gotta find something before April.
03-12-2001, 02:41 PM
Hi-ya...that 7/7 plan sounds good...course they wont let me do it know that my phone line is a business account, but I would do that one if I could.
Flower, it sounds like all of us here had the same cold as you had. I hope we all get totally over it soon. This is the most cold med and tissue we've ever gone through! Well, last year was bad too...I guess cold/flu season is just worse than in years past, with everyone traveling around and spreading weird stuff, we just get sicker more often - great! Anyway, I'm hoping to be sniffle free soon!!!! And back to some regular exercise.
Cookie, your class sound great and I do hope it helps you put less pressure on yourself.
I think I am well enough I could at least do some crunches today...who is with me???? lets drop and do 50! Take care pals!
03-13-2001, 09:50 AM
Hello. I am on antibiotics now. Unfortunately, it's giving me the runs. :( I think I jinxed myself too. I asked for a precription for my recent outbreaks of cold sores. 2 days later, what do I get, a new cold sore!!! I used to only get them during high stress-(funeral kind of stress) or first sunburn of the summer. I have had 5 this year already!!! Well, we'll see if this medicine helps any... There is a daily kind to prevent too. I may have to do that...
Cameron went in for his WELL checkup and he has broncitis and sinus infection. I didn't realize he was sick. I never heard him cough, he never complained. Chris got medicine too. Grif is trying his 3rd antibiotic. Now, lets all hope Ri doesn't get sick again and start this over again. He's been off medication for 10 days now....
Grampa spent the night at Grandma home. :) Let's hope this is the start of makeup and move back in together time.
I am eatting good stuff. (veggies, whole wheat ect...) I need to shower and do more laundry. I pulled weeds for an hour. Gonna finish after Chris gets up. I am sore. 4 bags full already. I was hustling! I am calling Bassett furniture @ 9. audri/flower
03-14-2001, 10:15 AM
My 2nd interview is next Monday. Another week not working. I am temptied to get a retail job just to get some money coming in! I am okay so far eating wise. Hopefull the snacks will not call my name today. (Yesterday, they were obnoxious!)
Oops-thanks for the southern joke. So funny. I can't forward it to anyone cause no one has emailed me w/ their addresses I lost when the computer crashed! Hint Hint
03-15-2001, 10:05 AM
Hello. It is really spring like here in Vegas. I gotta a mini burn yesterday. I worked on the yard and patio. Amazing how much garbage accumulates over winter. I definately feel the muscles. I watched Disney's THE KID w/ Bruce Willis last night. Very cute. I liked it.
Dale has been at Diane's for 3 days. He got himself a job. She says he'll be back once his car is out of the shop. Keep your fingers crossed that she changes her mind. And she keeps him forever. He is fine...I am not complaining but I like my home w/ just us. Visits are fine but all day is a bit much.
Well, today I want to go visit the ducks and play in the yard a bit more. I want to work a a few silk arrangements and IF I had some extra moey I would start another attempt on a herb garden. I will April 1st. I will walk at the park. At least a mile. ~flower/audri~

:wave: HI Everybody!
I am helping with some fundraisers so my 9 year old daughter and the performance jazz dance team she is on can go to nationals at 'sandiego' in july(they won first place at dance magic in portland so they get to go to nationals) I am so proud and excited for all the girls!:)
I need to feel excited about working out again....I used to have this great drive before...I LOST IT....cannot seem to find it....have any of you seen it?;)
Been a busy week but have been 'Angelic' with my eating. :angel:
Flower/audri....I sure wish it was spring-like here! I just love it when the baby ducklings are swimming around the pond.
Till next time! BYE! :wave:

I sure miss 'itsworhit'!:cry:
Where did she go?
Did I miss a post by her?
"Walking On Sunshine!":cool:
03-15-2001, 11:01 PM
Itsworthit hasn't posted in quite a while has she? I lost everyones address or I would email her.
I have to get back into walking. That seems to be the only thing that makes me stick to healthy eating. I wish you all lived closer!
Cookie...spring will arrive there soon. Are all the trees pink w/ blossoms yet? I love going down NW 21st and 23rd and drive all over the petals. Like a huge wedding!
Well, hope to see everyone posting tomorrow! I am posting a thread called 101 ways to stop eatting after dinner on the Richard Simmons section. I type a tip from a book I am reading daily.
