Ahhhhhh what a nice day here, perfect ! Plus no boss :D
Time to brew a pot of coffee ... bbl ;) <-- love that guy.
Looks like another hot day.Looking forward to a cool front moving in this weekend.
Anyone have any special Labor Day Plans? My hubby's BD is Sat. so I invited the "clan" all over for dinner! What was I thinking about? Of course we will have a good time but I will do all the work! I did ask HIS Mother to bake him a cake!
The crowds at WW have been large in number. I had 105 members in a so called "express" meeting last night. Imagine that! Everyone for the most part likes Flexpoints!
I am heading out for about a 45 min walk to get myself off to a good start.I am more conscious about what goes in the mouth when I have walked first!
Hope everyone checks in today. Have a great day!

Good Morning Chickadees!
Leens, I'm glad your boss is gone today, but mine will be here all day so I can't play too long!
Cin - enjoy your walk! Tell Hubby Happy Birthday from me! I just realized me and my hubby are celebrating our 24th wedding anniversary on Sept 1 - good thing I remembered huh! LOL
Alte - please let us know how the meeting goes and how you like the flexpoints!
I will be busy at work today and then I have to leave at 1:00 to go pick up my youngest son at school (45 minutes away) and come back into town (45 minutes back) to get his immunization shots, then head back home. Gee I sure am glad that gas is so cheap right now - NOT! LOL
Going to grab my 2nd cup of coffee!
Hope everybody has a great day!
Does anybody want to join Leens and I on the food journal thread?

Leens I can send my boss to you if you want. Sometimes I can't make that man leave!
Cin I hope you have a good time. I sure it is a hoot when you get the whole bunch together.
Cathy my hubby drove in from Houston last night and said that they are working on the interstate over your way and he was stuck in it for some time. Are they repaving or making it wider? Do you know?
I made a new tuna dip recipe I found on the net last night and oh my goodness, it is awesome. It is almost fat free and it is high in protein. This is going to me something I make more ofter.

Kemp, if he was coming in from Houston, I would imagine he was coming in on Interstate 10. They are repaving that road. But we live right off of Highway 171, which is still 2 lanes right now, but they are widening it to 4 lanes and boy what a mess! But in a few years it will be really nice! ;-)
I'm sure your hubby did get stuck in traffic around Lake Charles. The traffic has been really crazy - almost like Houston to me!
Hey, share the tuna dip recipe with us kemp - it sounds too good to keep to yourself!

In a food prccessor combine:
1/2 small onion
pickels (how ever many you would like to add)
2 tsp. garlic
one whole lemon, juiced
once that is diced add in:
1 8oz package of FF cream cheese
1/4 C FF cottage cheese
3 cans tuna , drained I used albacore b/c I like the taste better
salt and pepper to taste, I used Tony's instead b/c I like a kick.
Cream it all together and serve chilled.
a serving is 1/2 C, it has about 21g Protien and 135 cals
I really love this stuff. I have it for my snack for today and I almost can't wait until then. I am going to add more pickels next time and maybe a hard boiled egg and some celery.

I woke up this morning and I was coming outta the bathroom and my mom walked down the hallway and told me that we had a death in the family
apparently my uncle steve (59) died. no cause of death determined yet.. they are doing the autopsy today. they found him on his back porch in a lawn chair (my aunt did) she was at work
the coroner said he was there for about 8-9 hours passed away.. rigamortis (sp?) had set in and he was leaning/crouched in the chair.. guess it wasn't a pretty sight *sih*
devestating news for me today. I got the wake on sunday and burial is on monday
08-28-2003, 05:05 PM
I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you get through the wake and funeral okay.
