Jennelle how did your test go saturday? I bet you did great. Were you nervous?

Tina did you pick out your glasses yet?

Gayle that is cute that you are instructing an 82 years old. Even at 82 we can learn something. That is funny about her coming up the walkway. Oh year by the way I do drink a lite beer because it has less calories but it has a full body taste.

Shelley, hey a 12 oz cup is my kind of cup. My mugs are tall and big. Just like my Oh I am bad. How did Brutis's appointment go? I hope that they can fix him up.

Doni sorry to hear about your mom. Is she walking better now? Do you have her back at home?

Debbie how is James feeling? Yes it is a rude awakening that summer is around the corner. I have just been stuffing my face. Time to smarten up. I am joinning you.WTG on staying on program. You are doing great.

Sherry are you feeling better today? Did you get your B/P checked? Let's do it together.......that is lose weight. 66 out in my dreams. It is just above freezing at that is above normal. Does that mean you have spring flowers blooming? We still have 2-3 feet of snow.

Ramona sounds like you had an enjoyable weekend. I have been eatting out of boredom and stress. I know that when I am out of control I am not happy. It is hard to get out of the cycle but once you do the first day it is much earier. Moving in with your parents is a big change but I know you are doing the right thing. As for your Dad's surgery you need to be at home to support your Mom. Let the boys take care of your Dad. You really can't do more for him than Rick and your brother can. I know it is this guilt thing, but it will be ok. No new romantic adventures to report here but I am starting to get ancy (sp ???) I know that is wrong.

Mom is getting stronger everyday. She is not smoking but is still having a hard time with that. She still has phnemonia (sp??) so they have increased her predizine. Her blood was all over the scale this week so her blood thinner has been adjusted accordingly. She has to go to the city 3 times a week to get it adjusted.

Guess what? The lucky bamboo plant is working overtime. We went to the casino saturday and I won $65.00. My girlfriend Cindy that gave it to me just shakes her head.

Well time to do some laundry, hope all is well since it is really quiet here.

03-01-2004, 05:56 PM
Hi Girls:wave:

Hope everyone is having a great Monday. I had tons of work on my desk all day today. Only got about half of it done. :( Brought some home, but you how that goes.

Guess what...I have a new love in my life.....:sssh: LOL "Russell Stover's Low Carb candy" I LOVE IT!!! I got a pecan delight this afternoon and it tastes like the real thang to me!! Anyway, I will cut back somewhere just to have one 2 or 3 times a week.

Ramona....I agree with with Dee. Stay and keep your Mom calm durung your Dad's surgery. Seems like I spend most of my life trying to be in 2 places at one time, makes you old fast. We are thinking of you and your family.

Sherry...What did the doctor say? I'm sure you got a chewing out!! It was good to see you this morning but not enough time to catch up.

Dee....James is much better, glad it didn't last long. Got my fingers crossed I don't get it now, it's some rough stuff.

Well got to start supper. Soup again for James...LOL.
Love you guys....deb

5 days down....91 to go~~~~

03-01-2004, 06:39 PM
Howdy :wave:

Well I went to the Dr. after work since I've had many bad headaches,nosebleeds and my blood pressure being so high.
My b/p was 170/111 :( Which is very high. She gave me Zestortic to take for 2 weeks which has hydrochlorothiazide in it to help bring it down. After 2 weeks, I'll go back on my 40 mg. of Zestril. She said since I was on stroke level, if I get dizzy or blurred vision, to get to the ER asap.

It was good to see you a few minutes this am. Hopefully we'll all be well this Saturday to eat out and celebrate your b/day!! I'm glad you & James are feeling better.

Are you going to move in with your Parents for a short time only or are you selling your house and moving in for good? I'm confused! (Which don't take much!) :lol: Your weekend sounded like heaven! :)

Like I said, We were praying for snow so bad but didn't get any! But I'll take these temperatures we're having now!! Glad to hear that your Mom is doing much better! I'll continue to pray for her. BTW: I have buttercups that are trying to bloom!! :D

Did your Dad take the price offered for his tusk even though it didn't meet the reserve price he wanted? Congrats on the 12 months now!!!!! Is there year round school there?

I thought it was cute about your 82 years young student. Bless her heart! I hope when I'm that age I'll be able to do something constructive! How's Allison?

I'm so sorry about your Mom. I'll say a prayer for her. :angel: I know you are busy and have a lot on your plate right now but please keep in touch with us! I've missed you!

Where are you girl? Is everything ok there????

How's everything with you? How is your Mom? She's been in my prayers too. Does she have high b/p? I've been meaning to ask you.

Did you get the results from your test? I told our librarian about all your ideas and she more less just shrugged me off! She's so hateful!!!!

Mary......Cheryl & Carol......PLEASE post soon!!!! I sure miss you!!! :grouphug:

I stayed OP all day!!!!! YIPPEE!!!!! :cp: Hopefully I won't slack now! Hope everyone had a great OP day! Gotta start dinner.....

Big Hugs!

03-01-2004, 07:23 PM
Gayle-Read your PM, you stinker!

Sherry-Please take care of yourself. My MIL was getting nosebleeds from high blood pressure. It has zoomed up to the 200's. You do realize that the hydro something or other is water pills, don't you? You'll be peeing a lot!

Ramona-I must have missed reading the lines. I didn't remember that you are moving in with your mother. Is this a permanent thing? You cannot be 2 places at the same time, so let your brothers do their parts also.

Dee-We are back to the 80's here.

Well, I took Brutus today to the tune of another $178.00. The dr. was very thorough. He said it is his liver and he prescribed some medicine for him to be on indefinitly to aid in digestion. He also said that the seed diet is what causes liver damage in birds. You'd think the pet food makers wouldn't sell seeds if they know that it will hurt the birds later in life. The pellet food he sold me is $30.00 for a small bag, but he said that table food would be fine too, so I will be feeding them all table food from now on, because Mike is having fits over the price of the food, not to mention that the birds don't want to eat the pellet stuff. I was at the vet for 2 hrs. waiting for the results to come back. I didn't get to work until 11:00. I really thought that I wouldn't be bringing him back home! The tests showed that he doesn't have any more bacteria in him than normal. So he has a liver that is not functioning as it should. I really don't know how long he can be nursed along, but as long as he is active and eating he will be fine. Once he starts not eating I won't let him go on because I don't want him to be in any sort of pain at all. Meanwhile, I have learned my lesson and the other birds will be eating correctly too so that they can live long healthy lives.

Sherry-No, the tusk didn't sell. I really hate to relist it because it cost $60.00 last time since I had it in 2 catagories. I just added more stuff of mine today. The girl that bought my rabbit jacket emailed me and can't believe how gorgeous it is. She gave me some great feedback! I hope it helps me sell the other stuff. I have to get Brutus' vet bill paid!

I've been OP now for 4 days. I haven't been journaling, but I've been being very careful about just grabbing something and stuffing it into my mouth. Oh, and I got my hair cut short again. My hairdresser tried to talk me into straightening it because she took a course on chinese hair straightening. Instead I bought some products to make frizzy hair smoother.

Jennelle-I hope your test went well. How long does it take before you find anything out?

03-01-2004, 08:11 PM
Sherry...I love the St.Patrick Day Floozie train!!! You are the best

:love: :comp:

03-01-2004, 08:30 PM
HI!!! I picked out my glasses today. I saved $200 by going to Wal Mart. Thanks to all who suggested it. It was so convenient. I walked in with no appointment and was out in just a few minutes. I should have them in a couple of weeks.

I was measured and weighed today at Curves. I had not lost any pounds but I lost 3 1/4 inches!! YIPPPEEE

Gotta go wash dishes and give the kids a bath. Hope everyone has a great night!!

03-02-2004, 11:12 AM
Great job Tina!!!!!!! Do you go to curves every day? What do you think of it? I bet you can feel a difference already in your clothes.

03-02-2004, 11:17 AM
Sherry*Vicki* Anyone getting emails from Wanda* I'm not sure, but I think her computer may have a virus. It's been well over a year since I heard from her, yesterday I received an email from her address with just a very short message to open a zip file with the enclosed password. For some reason, I didn't feel right about it and deleted without opening. Last night I received an email from my server stating that a virus like this is going around. It said it could come from anyone, even people you, DO NOT open an attachment with a password.

03-02-2004, 11:34 AM
HI, Good Morning All!!! Yes I go to Curves everyday. I have missed very few days in the past almost 6 months. I have lost around 32 inches in the 6 months I have been going!! I love it. I went down a pant size my first month.

They are doing a promoton this month challenging everyone to lose 5 pounds or 5 inches. So that is my goal. I am going to lose 5 pounds. I can do it.

Anyone catch the finale of Average Joe? What did ya think?

How about American Idol? I think that William Hung is so sweet.

Hope you all have a geat day.

03-02-2004, 11:49 AM
Hey Gayle and Tina I see your yolk glowing! Someone to share my morning coffee with.

Sherry please slow down and take time for yourself. I am worried about you. If I could I would send you a snow day so that you could get it off. There is big fluffy snow flakes falling here right now. I think that you are going to bring everyone luck with that St Pat's train. It is cute. Was it there when you first started the thread? I remember looking and seeing out names but that was it.

Debbie glad that you didn't get sick like James. Still soup yesterday he must have been really sick.

Gayle thanks for the virus warning. There are so many sick people out there with nothing better to do.

Tina great going on inches lost. It must feel incouraging.

I stayed on program yesterday. Thanks for the motivation Debbie. Your count down helps me too.

So Sherry has butter cups trying to bloom anyone else have some spring flowers blooming....I need to dream.

03-02-2004, 11:56 AM
Sherry when you get a chance can you start a new thread for march walking.....well really what I would like is for you to walk with us again. Shelley and I are lonely.

03-02-2004, 01:33 PM
Dee, I just realized that when the yolks are glowing that means you are signed on.

Hi Dee!!

03-02-2004, 03:05 PM

Well, Dan left this morning. I did my very best not to cry in front of him, but I just couldn't help it. He is supposed to be in Iraq by this Friday. Please keep him as well as all of the service personel in your prayers.

03-02-2004, 04:39 PM
Ramona I am sorry for not mention Dad this morning. I know that this is a hard thing for a mother to do. I am proud of you and Dan. My prayers are with Dan and your family.I pray for God speed for Dan.

Hi Tina!

03-02-2004, 06:57 PM
Afternoon Girls:wave:

Today is my Grannymom's birthday{92 years old} , so I went by there after I got off work. She was having a good day, didn't say anything off the wall...LOL. She is so quiet these days though, kind of sad. But it is such a blessing to still have here with us. :hb: Happy Birthday G-Mom!!

Ramona....We will be praying for Dan everyday. When is your big move?

Tina....WTG!! I went to curves for a few months and loved it. Because it was so far from my house, it made it hard to go with my busy schedule.

Sherry...Are you feeling better today? I'm sure it will take a few days for the medicine to start working. Please don't let it get that high anymore, we all worry about you.

Gayle....I have Wanda's new email address and see her online quite often. I have tried sending her emails but never get anything back. I really miss her and think of her a lot. Wish she would come back to us.

Dee...James went back to work today. Guess all our chances for snow are gone. :( Sure wanted those days off, guess we'll have to settle for spring break days now.

Shelley....WTG on staying OP!!! The last few days have been pretty easy for me. Just keep thinking about SUMMER!! Is your school going to year round?

I got a late birthday card from my Mom today, she wrote the sweetest verse in it. Made me cry.
You are the greatest blessing that God could ever send. A sweet and loving daughter who has grown to be my friend.

Got to go and start supper. Fixing some real food tonight...LOL

6 days down...90 to GO!!!!

03-02-2004, 08:18 PM
Debbie-No, thank goodness we don't have year round school! It will be nice working for a couple of months without teachers or kids! Tell grannymom happy birthday for me!

Ramona-I know it must be so hard for you. Dan continues to be in my prayers.

Gayle-They say that some virus' have familiar names on them because they add names from anyone that has ever sent you an email to get you to open it up so it can mess up your computer.

Sherry-I am so sorry. I still take you for granted!! I never comment on the wonderful job that you do for us, keeping the board so decorated with all your computer talents!

Dee-How's Dez doing? Give me a pm sometime!

Tina-Awesome job on the inches lost. You should come over and post your curves workouts on the exercise thread. Like Dee said, it is getting lonely over there!

03-02-2004, 10:25 PM
Thanks for your interest in my test, ladies, but it's not 'til THIS Saturday! :lol: It's nice to feel loved, though! :D

Can't remember who was talking about the Russell Stover sugar-free (or low carb?) careful with them! I had some once and they gave me the royal screaming poo-poos! :o I didn't see the warning about "laxative effect."

03-03-2004, 04:11 PM
Debbie you are so lucky to have a grandma. 92 years young, wow. You are so special to your mother. I know that she appreciates everything that you do for her. By the way how old is she? Glad that you are doing great on program. You got me going. I made wise food choices yesterday. I kept thinking of summer too.

Shelley good for you staying on program. Now time to journal so you don't fall by the way side. Dez is managing ok. She is really trying. We still have our battles but I guess that is normal for teenagers. I get so frusterated with her sometimes. She is such a slob.

Jennelle good luck saturday. I think that I was the one that assumed that you were going last saturday. Sorry.

So where did everyone else go today?

I am off to see the wizard the wonderful wizard of Oz. My wizard today is my massage therapist. I have had such a pain in the butt that I am finding it hard to sit. It has increasingly got worse since june. Now I need drugs to survive and I don't like that. CT scan is only a few weeks away so maybe they will be able to figure out what is going on.

03-03-2004, 04:50 PM
Hello Ladies!!

Janelle I know what you mean about the low carb candies. I bought some carborite candies when I was low carbing and they were so good. I think it was the first time I tried them when I spent the evening with a tummy ache. After that I had no probs.

Our town is mouring today. Yesterday evening there was a head on crash down the road from my house. 3 teenagers were killed instantly and 2 others are injured one is critical. They all went to the same high school together. There ages were from 15-19. That is so scary I had to say a prayer as soon as I heard. Can you imagine what grief those familes are going through. Sorry to be so depressing It has just been on my mind a lot today.

Sherry please take good care of yourself. Your health comes first.

I have had 3 Nonpaying Ebayers in the past few of weeks. I don't know what else to do other than relist and forget about it. They wont answer my emails.

To everyone else- hope you are having a great day.

03-03-2004, 05:12 PM
Tina, my heart goes out to the families of those children and to the people in your community. What a terrible tragedy.

Well, I was bored today so I went to ebay and looked around a little. I have a lot of things I would like to try to sell, but it all seems overwhelming. Also, a lot of the things that I have are listed already and they don't seem to bring very much. Any tips on getting started that won't leave me with a headache? I have some jewelry, some snow bunnies, Department 56, and some other odds and ends I would like to list.

I hope everyone else is having a good "hump" day. It has been raining here since last night and is supposed to rain through Friday. All of the detectives have been out today with the dive team trying to find a weapon that was supposedly used in a murder and was thrown in a pond. I have just been sitting here going nuts. I hate not being busy!

Well, I'll "talk" to you all later. Going to go home, put on my sweats, and watch the AI results show.

03-03-2004, 06:34 PM
Jennelle-I honestly did think it was this Saturday and that I was wrong! Good luck!

Tina-I've been lucky. I haven't had a nonpayer yet, but I have to refund the rabbit jacket since it doesn't fit her. She is mailing it back and I am going to refund the money. I just feel that I wasn't meant to sell it. Luckily, I still have enough in Paypal to cover it.

03-03-2004, 09:24 PM
Hello :wave:

Sorry I didn't post last night. I had another bad headache.I went to bed pretty early. THANK YOU ALL for the well wishes! I'm determined to bring this blood pressure down!

I have been OP for 3 days now!! :cp: I even walked a little yesterday & today. :) (I posted Shelley & Dee on the exercise thread!! Don't pass out!! LOL)

I'm sure GrannyMom had a wonderful b/d! I hope I live to see 92! That was so sweet what your Mom wrote on your b/day card! She's such a sweet lady. WTG on joining the YMCA! I'm jealous but happy for you!!

Do you want me to mail you some buttercups??!! :lol: Hopefully the snow there will be gone soon and you'll have nice weather! How's Dez doing?

I joined Curves last year and only went a few times. They of course had to keep taking the dues out every month from my checking. I know it would have worked for me if I was closer to one. It was out of my way to get to it so I quit and used that as an excuse. CONGRATS on your inches lost!!!! :cp: BTW: I heard about the wreck on the news last night. Those poor teens and bless their families.

I didn't know that this medication had a water pill in it until you told me. Thanks! I looked it up on the computer and I did find out that it will lower my b/p in time.Also, it makes me so sleepy and dowsy that I can only take it at bedtime. BTW: Thanks for the compliments on my threads. You're so sweet!

I also thought your test was last Saturday. I'll be thinking of you this Saturday. Good Luck!! :crossed:

I can't help you with the ebay thing. I have never sold anything.I've only bought items. Hey...You could bring your stuff here and with all my things, We could have one BIG yard sale!! :D

Did you watch AI last night? I can't wait to see who wins tonight. I was for the Hawaiian girl and it was up in the air for my 2nd person.So far I think the 1st group has been the best! How's the classes going? I wished we lived close to one another!!!

How's your Mom? I hope you post soon and let us know how she is.

CAROL......DONI......MARY.......CHERYL.........Whe re are you????? Please let us know how you are!!!!!! :grouphug:

Gotta get ready to watch AI.....HUGS!

03-03-2004, 11:55 PM
Evening girls

Thought I would post a quickie before going to bed.

Sherry...Hope you are feeling better tonight. WTG on getting back to walking. We can walk this summer early , then lay around the pool rest of the day.

Tina....I saw on the news tonight about those kids. So sad!! Did you know all of them?

Shelley...My Mom is 71 years old. She is such a wonderful person, calm and quiet. Nothing like me...LOL.

Jennelle....I have only eaten the low carb candy a couple of times, but no problems here. Good luck Saturday!!

Gayle....Well, I watched AI tonight. I was shocked about that John guy, don't think he will go much farther though. The wild card show next week should be good.

I really thought about the YMCA before joining. After being a visiter today, I was sold. Besides all the extras they offer there, there was one main thing that appealed to me. It's a stress-free zone!!! I can honestly say the whole time I was there, I didn't think about anything else. No problems, not work, not even the hundreds other things I could be doing. They also have some special classes, things that I have really wanted to try. Like beginners YOGA!!
Who knows what this {old} chick might try...LOL.

7 days down...89 to go!! We are in the 80's now girls!!!

Got to hit the sack...
Love you guys...deb

03-04-2004, 12:12 PM
Debbie the first thing I said when you said that we were in the 80's now was "Oh Sh*t" Well I am the same as Sherry this is day four. Yipee and I feel in control. Your mom is only a year older than my mom. Mom will be 70 in april. I thought your mom would be older because we are about 10 years apart. I love the YMCA too. We have been members for quite awhile. I go 2-6 times a week, depending on what is happenning.

Sherry I am really worried about you. Please rest and take care of yourself. This is not good.

Tina that is really sad about the car accident. We need to count our blessings everyday.

Shelley to bad about having to refund the money for the jacket. Jay sells a fair amount of stuff on ebay. He does pretty good but yes he does have to refund some people.

Ramona rain can be so depressing after a day or two. The good thing is it will make everything green. I can't give you any advise for ebay because I am going to list something I let Jay do the work.

Hope everyone has a good day.

03-04-2004, 09:13 PM
Hi Ladies...Been here just trying to get rid of the virus worm that hit my computer from an email i received from it said a friend but it must have gotten in hers without realizing it and opened it and bang...

Mom is doing well she had a little flu thing going on but much better and Deb yes mom has h/p and that is what led to her stroke last year.

Well back to getting computer fixed ...I haven't deserted you all...Can't get rid of an ole dog like me.


03-05-2004, 12:59 AM
Just wanted to check in before going to bed. Me and the kids spent the day with their great grandparents today. I don't know who enjoyed it more. When it was time to leave I literally had to drag the kids away kicking and screaming. I think they would live there. That made my grandparents feel good.

Debbie I knew the family of one of the kids. They were our neighbors when he was about 5 yrs. old. Another one lived beside my grandparents.

Ramona I would be glad to help you get started Ebaying. I love it so much my husband and I are looking for places to buy wholesale or at auctions. Great wholesale places are hard to find. If anyone knows where I could get a lot of stuff cheap let me know. Please! LOL

I missed AI last night. We went out to eat. I missed the wildcards. Hope some of my favorites got a second chance.

Good luck Vicki getting your computer back up and running again.

Hope everyone has a great Friday!


03-05-2004, 02:11 AM
Happy to hear most of you are staying op!!! Keep up the great work!

Sher: Are the headaches better? My mom has high blood pressure and has battled it for years. I'm the opposite, mine is so low they always ask if I'm still alive!

Tina, my prayer go out to the families. What a tragedy of so many lives taken. I need to get back to selling on ebay too. Not enough hours in the day!!!

Vickster: I did a virus update and scan, mine came out ok. I guess they are going around like crazy.

Deb: how's hubby??? You??? did you get over all of the sinus stuff?

Ramona: I can't even begin to imagine what it was like to send Dan off. I am keeping him on my prayer list.

Shelley: Did the lady ever pay you for the print? Sorry to hear you had to do a refund. On clothing, it's a hassle, but I usually measure everything (arm length, hem etc) and include it in the auction.

Dee: What did you find out at the Doctor??? Is it like a pinched nerve?

Well, we are under a flood warning, rain for the past few days. Tonight it looks like it could turn into snow. Sorry for not posting much. I just have alot of stuff going on and different things on my mind lately.
Some of you might remember...I use to work with juvenile offenders in a level 4 housing- Their last stop before lock-up. we had a young man there, probably around 16, sweet, charming, the whole nine yards. He was in due to gang related activities. I remember hugging him when he was released and wishing him the very best, I really had high hopes for him. Tonight on TV I seen a picture of him! He was arrested on a murder charge of a young girl. How very sad for everyone involved, I can't believe anyone could take another human life.

03-05-2004, 05:41 PM
What do you all think about Martha Steward being found guilty on all four accounts?

With the evidence that they had I believed that she was guilty even though I did not want to.

03-06-2004, 01:43 AM
I'm probably not a good one to ask Dee. I'm not a Martha stewart fan. I was laughing tonight and telling Steve, now they need to include jail cell bars on her packaging in the stores! ok, I'm being a smart *** here... Hmmm...wonder what color she will decorate her cell to coordinate with her prison garb? I hope I didn't offend anyone. :)

03-06-2004, 09:06 AM
Morning girls:wave:

Hope everyone has a great weekend planned, filled with family and friends.

Yesterday was one of those days for me...Man!! What a nightmare~~ School was out but I had to go to sessions all days at Rich's food. We baked all day!! Cinnamon rolls, sticky buns, all kinds of breads, DONUTS, fried pies, and even cake decorating. It's hard to believe {even for me} BUT I didn't have one bite of anything. I really became the [low-carb] joke of the I won the prize for the best decorated cake!!! It was an Easter cake that said Happy Easter!! The kicker is...They let us bring home everything we had cooked. All the stuff is wrapped up neatly in my freezer right now.
Yesterday's bad news.....We finished up around 2.15 and when I checked my messages on my cell, I had 12 urgent messages. My Grannymon had fallen around 12.30 and everyone was trying to get ahold of me. When I got to the hospital she was still in the emergency room for tests. They found at least 4 major medical problems, done of them really related to the fall. When I left around 10.30 last night, she was resting comfortablely in her room. The main thing the doctors said was that there would be no way she could ever live by herself again. She needs to be somewhere she can get the medical attention she needs for the rest of her life. We all cried and cried, but we all knew this day was coming soon. My Mom and her sisters have a big decision to make. Glad it isn't up to me. Please pray for my Grannymom!!
I have an appointment with the personal trainer at the YMCA this morning. I sure need a stressfree workput this morning.

10 days down....86 to GO!!!!

Love to everyone...hugs..deb

03-06-2004, 10:49 AM
Oh no Debbie! I am sorry to hear about your Grandma. That is so sad. I have said a prayer for her and also for your families guidance in the right thing to do.

03-06-2004, 11:54 AM
Good Mornin' :wave:

I have got a fun-filled day planned and it would probably be more fun if I felt better. My blood pressure is still up and my head is killing me.:( Yesterday is was up to 178/118.I'm still taking my medication faithfully and can't figure out why it won't come down.

I'm going to a baby shower at 2:00 and when it's over, we're going to Debbie's to eat out for her belated b/day.

I'm so sorry about GrannyMom. I feel that whatever they decide to do will be the right choice.She's in my prayers.Love you! Congrats on not eating all those sweets yesterday!! Now that took willpower girl!! WTG! :)

I agree word for word what you wrote about Martha Stewart!! That was funny what you said about how she would decorte her jail cell! :lol:

Still have snow? When does it usually start getting pretty there? Is Dez doing better now? Here's a place in Canada that Chris is going to for a fishing trip in May. Are you close to it?

Sorry about the quick post earlier. Larry got home and was waiting for me to go out.

Sherry, Chris will only be about 2 hours away from me. It is beautiful out there. It is close by to where we were camping this summer. Who is he going with? Please rest as much as you can Sherry. When do you go to the doctor next? I hope this week. We still have tons of snow and it has snowed a few times this week. I am tired of it. It should mostly be gone by (I hope) first we of april. At least by Easter.

Debbie way to go for not eatting the baking. That must have been a huge challenge. It would have been for me. I have been on program since march 1. Makes me so much happier that I am in control.

Gayle I think that it is funny what you have said about Martha. I do like some of her ideas and products though. Some of it is way to fancy smancy for me.

We went to visit mom and dad last night. Mom is doing really good. She is improving everytime I see her. Her lungs are clear now.

Hope that you all have a great weekend.

Hi girls!!! I actually like some of Martha's idea's and products too. There is just something about her....seem's like a person I would not trust... smeone said she treats her staff horribly and is very rude.

Shelley: how is Brutus doing today?

Sher, take care of yourself. Should you try to take a bout 30 minutes a day and just sit down with your feet up? I know the Dr. stressed that to my mom. DO WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERS!!!! You try to carry to much of the load yourself.

Deb, sorry about Grandma. I am saying prayers. I had a Grandmother that had to be placed in residental care, she hated it. The first week anyways! Then she ended up meeting people, doing activities and having something everyday to look forward to. It finally ended up getting to the point that you would try to set-up a visit and she would tell you it was going to interfer with her bingo!

Dee, keep that snow there! It feels like spring here today!! YIPPEEE!!!! I noticed the fishies in my pond are starting to move around a little. Hopefully that is a sign spring will be here soon!

All of you are doing an EXCELLENT job of staying OP!!!!

We went to go see the Passion last night. It was very powerful and very good, but different then I expected.

Debbie-I'm saying a prayer for your grandmom!

Gayle-Thanks for the PM. I don't have the virus, it is just using email addresses from comcast. If any of you get an attachment from me,, DO NOT OPEN IT!! Delete it immediately! I'll PM any of you if I am intending to really send you an attachment.

All you ladies are doing awesome on your plans! I haven't had any candy now for about a week. I am trying to stay away from it completely except for maybe Altoids or TicTacs.

Brutus is doing about the same. All of my birds are beginning to hate table food! I'm about ready to give up and put them back on seeds!

Okay ladies, I took the Praxis test yesterday and it seemed like it went well. I made a few educated guesses, then came home and looked them up on the Internet and I got them all right! Yay me! I'll know in a few weeks whether or not I passed.

I have been doing the ususal today. Cleaning & washing clothes. :blah:

I made the low-fat blueberry muffins that I posted and they are soooooo good!!! :hun: They are only 1 point for 2 muffins!! So all of you WW's...please try them!!

I hope GrannyMom improves. She's been on my mind all day. Also in my prayers. :angel: As you said, she's not hurting...It's the family that is.We had a fun time last night even though I didn't feel good. Continue to stay OP and workout! I'm so proud of you!!!!

Congrats on the test and getting the answers correct.Let us know when you find out something. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you! :crossed:

Congrats for no candy for a week!!! WTG!!! :cp: I know it's hard for you but you have proved that you can do it!!!

I want to see Passion so bad! Did you cry? Some teachers at School went and they said they cried all the way through it. Did Steve go with you?

Chris is going with 3 friends and one of their Dads.He's so excited about it.They site looks like it's so pretty.I know he'll have a great time.Do you want some buttercups????? :D

Where is everyone else?????????!!!!!! :?: Hope you post soon!!!

Another OP day for me!!!! I'm on a roll!! Tomorrow is weigh-in. I hope I did good!

Thanks to everyone who has asked about me.I love you all so much! My blood pressure is 173/120 today. The bottom number has gone up.I'm calling the Dr. in the am!!!!!! I promise!!
Question: Does tiredness & forcing myself to do things normal with high b/p? I have had to make myself wash clothes and clean. I also didn't think I was going to make it through my shopping at the store this am.

Sherry - With BP that high, there is definitely something wrong. You should be resting, not cleaning and running around! :nono: The world is NOT going to end if you don't do the dishes one day! Make someone ELSE go grocery shopping! You are going to be no good to anyone when you drop dead from a high blood pressure-induced stroke!
