Hi Everyone

I thought it would be easier for people who get the email notification to just add the link for the new thread to the old thread :)

Anyhow,
The dr. called and said all Andrew's kidney functions were fine! I have never been happier to have his white count up!!! :) YAH! He only has the sore throat for now! And he said that is from his allergies draining down

Spryng,
Post that recipe so we can check it out!

Michelle,
I think I might get the watp's tapes and start adding my mileage with you :)

Julie,
Whatcha had for supper???? Both meals sounded good!

Cindi,
I LOVE Taco Salad! What type of chips do you use? We usually use the baked doritos!

Crystal,
Hows the garden coming?

Geri,
I think you have a great idea planning your meals. I am thinking about that myself.

Have a great night!
I did absoutely terrible today but it is over and I have to start fresh again :)

Penny - thats great!!! I'm so happy Andrew is okay!! Yeah you should get the WATP tapes its actually fun and I'd love to have a walking "partner"

Spryng - your supper sounds soooo good I wish I could have some rice. I know my daughter would probably love to go swimming but the little one hates water, I just started noticing that she is terrified when she takes her baths I always thought maybe it was just a lil chilly or something, but I was watching today and she was just shaking with fear poor thing I need to get her over that. I might miss American Idol tonight cuz they are having signal problems for the fox station in my town I called the cable company and they said they are trying to get it up before Idol starts. I'm crossing my fingers.

Dinner is gonna be pork chops and broccoli with garlic butter (homemade) so I need to go check it out and see how its cooking, I'll talk to you all after idol, if I get to watch it that is, so spryng if you dont mind post me some highlights of the shoe just incase pleassseeeeee :D

Talk to you all in a bit!!

Michelle

Hi everyone.
Sounds like everyone is doing great. I am sooooooooooo busy right now. I have to take and pick up my siblings from school until the end of May, I am getting my blood drawn every other day for my study. Tomorrow, I have my alarm set for 6:15 just so I can get in my exercise before I go get my sister. We also have to go take oldest ds for his day in kindergarten. I will try to check in tomorrow.

Well, the threads seem to be busier now, glad to see that.

Spryng, I can't stand tomatoes, in fact I don't eat them at all, or onions, or peppers or most veggies. The weather there sounds nice. About like it is here. Saturday is our garage sale and it's suppose to be about 75, perfect. Glad your dinner turned out, that sounds like something I'd like to make, I'll check out the recipe if you post it.

Michelle, your dinner sounded good too. Hope you get to watch idol tonight. You know when I was little I was scared of water too, and at bath time. I don't know when or how I got over it but I did. I would say just don't give in to her fear, make her accept it and I think as she gets older and realizes it's not going to hurt her she'll be fine.

Penny, so glad to hear Andrew is okay. I think now I'm gonna get to plant my seeds on Thursday. We had had so much rain this weekend, my dh keeps tilling and we're having to let it dry out. He said he'll till again tomorrow and it should be fine after that.

I'm so sorry if I missed anyone. Hope everyone had a great day and has a great night.

I can tell my appetite is decreasing. It doesn't take as much to fill me up. I'm so glad. I'm able to fit a nice dessert or snack at night time without going over my count. I've also realized, the more I eat fruit the more I crave it, of course I always do in the warmer weather. I eat apples like every day and even crave them over sugar free cookies. I can tell eating this way is becoming second nature and I'm not having to think about it as much. I didn't get to go walk, but I did help rake and hoe the garden some, then me and Alisa played tag outside, I ran enough to work up a sweat, I think that counts. I also moved furniture around today. And btw, dh doesn't like it so I'll move it again tomorrow. I didn't get to mop, which now I'm glad, we're still tracking in mud and it would have been for nothing, I may wait until Thursday. Well, i've had a good day and hope to have a great night.

Good evening ladies,

I VOTED! I don't want the best people in the bottom 3 again this week! I voted for LaToya but I actually liked Diana the best tonight. Michelle...did your cable company get fox up and running?

Penny.. YEAH for Andrew!! So glad it's nothing major. WHEW!! Now stop stressing and get back on track :D . I highly recommend the WATP and wish I had thought to keep track of how many miles I have walked with her :mad: . Oh well.

Ricci, nice to hear from you...hope you get your life back soon :^:

Dinner was Spaghetti with shrimp in it and broccoli and a salad. I have to download some new pictures 'cause Tony fed himself tonight. Why is it that kids always have to put their spaghetti sauced hands in their hair?? He never does that when he eats :lol: The pics are adorable...hopefully I'll get to it tomorrow sometime.

Spryng, luckily Tony will sit nice in the grocery cart and our store has these cool car carts that I can use if I have both boys with me. They're huge though and turns are kind of tough but they have a car in the front of them that 2 kids can sit in. Will likes to hang his body out of it though :p . Let's see..tomorrow there are supposed to be 8 of us but there is usually between 5 and 6 every month. Luckily the dessert I made is 8 servings so there will be none left to tempt me.

Julie don't worry about addressing everyone! This group, although shrinking in pounds :D , is getting pretty large!

I'm jealous of all your warm weather. Hit a whole 48 degrees today. Thank goodness the sun was out so we did get out for a bit this afternoon. Tomorrow it's to be in the 70's but with very high winds. Hopefully we'll get some more planted (the beans, peas, carrots, radishes) tomatoes and green peppers will have to wait until later in May.

I realized tonight that I won't be going to WI next Monday because it's Will's birthday and we're having the Grandma's over to dinner. The big party will be the 15th for both the boys but we'll have a small cake just for him. I tend to slack off on the eating if I know I'm not going to WI so help me stay true to my new lifestyle here!! I don't know if I'll get my workout in tomorrow either because a city inspector has to come look at the holes Dh dug for the deck and I'm not going to answer the door all sweaty and gross. If I start exercising then I know he'll show up! Hopefully I can still get one in later before dinner.

Well, hello to everyone else out there. Ginny...how was the urologist visit??

Have a great night and I'll ttyt.

Ughhhh no my cable company still hasn't gotten fox up and running I called to make sure my digital box wasn't malfunctioning, and they said no there was a problem with the signal and that they were working on it, then I asked if there was a time estimate and they said no but they were having a lot of people call to see if it would be up in time for Idol. Oh well it at least better be working tomorrow for the results show.

Dinner was wonderful tonight and I was gonna try and do another mile before bed but to be perfectly honest my leg muscles are killing me don't let the word "walk" make you think the workout is easy lol they really do use some good muscles in those tapes ;)

Well I'm gonna watch a little more nick at night and then hit the sack need to get some sleep before the storms hit I won't sleep well after the first peal of thunder lol :) yeah yeah I'm a scaredy ;)

Talk to you all later!

Good evening all!

Michelle, so sorry you missed American Idol! But you really didn't miss much. I didn't like most of the performances. I did think Diana did fantastic but I forgot to vote. I would have voted for her. Do you like Gloria Estefan? If so then you may have enjoyed the show but I don't care for her music so it was "blah" to me and alot of them had a hard time singing her songs. (oh and I did NOT like Diana's dress. It was red and WAY too tight on her. She isn't "thin" so it looked bad I thought) I think she is a beautiful girl but needs to rethink some of her outfits. But maybe that is just me, lol. But you should be able to catch all the highlights tomorrow night and hopefully John Stevens (the red head) goes home. He was so terrible tonight.
Geri, I've never had spaghetti with shrimp before. Sounds great. I have made it with chicken once, it was ok. I can't wait to see those pictures. Sounds so cute. We have those baskets at our local grocery store and the kids love them. I wish they had them at walmart too. Well if you don't make next weeks Wi you'll have a huge loss the following week! How exciting that will be to see huh? Will the suspense kill you? It would me. I peeked at the scale this morning and was happy to see what it said! Now lets just hope it says the same thing on friday.
Crystal, I will post that recipe as soon as I have time to write it out. It was in my current WW magazine. But you may not like it because the chicken is cooked in tomatoes and onion, two veggies you mentioned you hated, lol. I guess you could pick them out. It gave it a really great flavor.
Ricci, wow! You are busy! How many siblings do you have? Are you the oldest?
Penny, so glad to hear your little one is fine. I know you will sleep better tonight knowing that. What a roller coaster you are on sometimes with kids huh? And thanks for starting the new thread with the link, that was cool.

Well, my evening has been fine. I'm tired tonight more than usual. But I guess it's from the extra stuff I did today, like shopping. Oh I did want to share something... Tanner discovered his tongue tonight. It was soooo cute. He will poke it in and out like a snake and just laugh at himself. He thought that was something special. I'll have to get a picture of him doing it tomorrow. Too cute.
Well I am off to bed now. Have a great night all. Ginny I miss you!! Hope your WI goes well tomorrow!! G'nite!

MichelleRae
04-28-2004, 01:14 AM
Spryng - Yeah I'm not a big fan of Glorias music either, I just like to see the performances. I definately agree that John needs to go home. I read on netscape news that they are predicting that American Idol will be cancelled if John wins lol.

Ok well I should definately go to bed now
I'll talk to you guys in the morning

Well, i'm having a tough time getting going. I slept in til 630 this morning versus my 530. I didn't sleep well, so dh left me alone when he got up to go to work. He must have been tiptoeing because I didn't hear a thing.

Anyway, everyone seemed to have a good evening.

Michelle, so sorry you didn't get to watch idol. But if you'll remember how much it got to you last week, it may have been for a reason, huh? LOL

Spryng, I don't mind cooking with tomatoes and onions, but I always make them big enough to pick out, but dh will probably gripe, he doesn't like that stuff either. That sounds cute what Tanner is doing. Andrew knows how to stick his tongue out at you and pretty soon he'll have to get in trouble but right now it's so cute, he'll stick it out and make that humming sound to go with it and it's just adorable.

Geri, you sound like you're gonna be a busy mommy. I've got a birthday coming up in June for Ally. She'll be three. We don't ever do anything other than family, but with 7 cousins it makes for a pretty big one.

Well girls. I've got a few errands to run today, don't want to but got to. I'm gonna get my mission done this morning so hopefully I'll be done by pm hours and I can go run around. Since I slept in I may not need a nap. I hope all of you have a great day.

Hi Ladies :)

Hope everyone has a great day! Andrew was burning up with fever last night and I didn't get him to sleep until after 2am this morning. He seems to be doing better this morning.

Not much planned for today. I am going to work on some of Andrew's party stuff and just clean around the house!~

Have a great one!

Okay, gals, I'm almost back to the boards. Our guest left this morning. The good news: while I don't think I'll have a loss at my weigh-in tomorrow, I have maintained, which is a relief. I was a little worried I might gain. It's difficult when others visit, or we go out of town.

Liamand I are meeting a friend and her son for a walk in the park, so I am off to do something healthy! The house is a bit out of order, so it will be back to flylady today as well :)

I'll come on later and respond to each of you from this thread (I'll go back and read everything I missed).

04-28-2004, 10:43 AM
Good morning all!
I am still very tired this morning and dragging, lol. I wish I had some caffeine around here. O-well.
Leigh, I hope you had a nice time with your guest! It's always nice for someone to come visit and even nicer when they leave, LOL. Oh! Maybe that is just me :) Enjoy your walk in the park today! Sounds wonderful.
Penny, so glad to hear Andrew is better this morning. Since the fever didn't have anything to do with his kidney was it due to teething or something? I don't remember if you mentioned that already.
Crystal, so glad you got to sleep in a little this morning. 6:30 would kill me to wake up at. I don't function well before 7:30 lol. Before Tanner I would get to sleep until 9 or 10 am (that is what time the other two get up) so it was an adjustment to get up at 7 after Tanner was born. Now I am used to it and like getting up earlier to start my day but there are still days I wish I could sleep until 9. :)
Michelle that is funny about AI and John. I would definitely quit watching if he got much further. But I think after last week those who are not as good will be going home soon and no more great singers in the bottom 3. I hope anyway. We'll see tonight.
OK, I need to get off here and get dressed and my bed made. What does everyone have planned for dinner tonight? I'm not sure yet for us. Maybe spaghetti or something easy. TTYL!

I am psyched, I got on my scale and peeked this morning. I was expecting the worst after the not so great weekend I had, and I was so happy to see my lowest weight yet!! Hopefully mine will be lower by Friday! So never get discouraged over a bad day or two of eating, as long as you get back to it you will be fine!

I didn't have a taco salad, no one else wanted it. So I will make it for lunch and use the rest of the meat for nachos for the kids dinner while we go to bible study. I use Wow Tostitos, and not very many. Homemade salsa is just to die for to me! LOVE THE STUFF! I really wasn't hungry before dinner, but lunch was late. I made a Veg All casserole instead, it's like a chicken pot pie with cheese and a ritz cracker crust and it could be done using lowfat ingredients, but I just chose to eat a smaller portion instead. I had Mayfield Less Carb ice cream for a snack and it was really good. DH liked it better than the regualr ice cream I buy. IMAGINE THAT!

Spryng, I am thinking I may HAVE to get up earlier to get the exercise in. The kids are getting up about the same time as me, so I may have to do that to be able to do it in peace. Although I do try to do toning exercises here and there throughout the day, while watching TV etc. Sometimes when I do WATP they will do it with me and that is fun.

I will miss the results show tonight, but John just has to go...although most of them were so bad, it could be anyone this time! I just don't think I should skip bible study for AI, although the thought has crossed my mind more than once(BAD CINDI!!!) Did you hear the poor guy is getting death threats?? What is with this world we live in????????????

I had a krave bar for breakfast, the taco salad will be my lunch and I will likely indulge in the goodies at bible study tonight for dinner, lol!!! My snacks will pretzels and PB and maybe some broccoli with dip or something. I am going right now to do crunches! Then my pants will fit better! :D

Have fun today girls! I know I will, I love dh being gone in the daytime!

Arrrgh...lost my post because of fat fingers!! I hate that.

So now I'll just say hello and I'm waiting for the city inspector to show up for our deck.

I will miss AI tonight so be sure to post results please!!

Gotta run.

Good Morning Ladies!!

Crystal - It must have felt kinda nice to get an extra hour of sleep in :) Good for you! Teagan was up at 7 am but kind of played in her crib for about 40 minutes so I got to lay in bed and listen to her :)

Penny - Have fun getting stuff together for Andrews party! I haven't yet decided what I'm going to do for Taylors birthday yet I'm sure we'll have it a month early while Hubby's Parents are up visiting it will be nice for them to have something special to do with her while they are here. I'm glad Andrew seems to be doing better this morning.

Leigh - Have fun with on your walk today. It must kind of be a relief to have your house back to yourselves, I dont particularly care for entertaining guests myself. I had my mom staying with us while she was waiting for my sister to move out of my moms house, and I didnt like it at all. I know I know she's my mom but she smokes, and likes 2 drink beer which are two things we dont do and although she would smoke outside she would drag the stench back into the house YUCK!! And I did not like her drinking a beer in front of my kids grrrrrr. Ok thats enough of my houseguest rant lol

Spryng - OMG I'm dragging today too, I have had a hard time getting going the last few days I think it's time to get thyroid levels checked again I dont think my meds are dosed high enough. I agree with you on American Idol if the worst singers in the group keep getting passed through each week I'm going to have a fit and then quit watching I think that it was horrible that Jenn got sent home last week but I'm sure someone has offered her a record deal.

So I'm kinda thinking of switching to WW, atkins is starting to feel a little bit Hum Drum to me I just need a bit more variety, besides the fact that I'm craving a bowl of grapenuts like no tomorrow lol. I'll keep you posted on that, I'm going to stick to Atkins at least for another week and see how it goes. Well I better go get my bed made and the kids dressed and ready for the day. I'll talk to you guys later, around lunch time :D

Jessi, Cindi, Ginny, Julie, Geri, Ricci, any one else I may have forgot I hope you all have a wonderful day!!

Have a Great day!!

Hi girls!!! This is just a quick note. Geri, those pics are too cute.

Spryng, hope your day is going good.

I had to run errands in town. Thought I'd take the kids to Sonic. We hadn't been there in over a month, any fast food place for the matter. I had the chicken club wrap. Have no idea how many calories are in it. It was grilled chicken breast, lettuce, bacon, cheese and lettuce wrapped in a warm tortilla. I had diet coke too. Have any ideas about how many calories I should count that as? I don't like to go over 400 for any meal, except maybe dinner. Well, girls, I think I'm gonna try to take a nap.

Okay, here are my replies to all your posts :D

Penny - nice to meet you! I hope Andrew is feeling better.

Michelle: Hi! Awesome news about the weight loss:) Good for you. I had staples for my c-section. Sounds like you were soooo productive! I need to get on the cleaning bandwagon again today. Also, you've gotten lots of exercise in.

Crystal: Congrats on the 2lbs - way to go!! :D Sounds like you're very dedicated to flylady and doing very well.

Geri: my incision was also very low - below the hairline. Good for you on the loss - sounds like you're doing a very good job maintaining!

Ginny: I do like the WATP tapes because walking is about the only form of exercise I enjoy (other than dancing, which doesn't happen too often!). But I think now I prefer getting out and walking since DS was born.

Cindi: All your goals sound wonderful - that's great! Isn't the laundry never-ending :lol:

Spryng- I'm glad the site is back up too. I missed everyone! What beautiful pictures! I'm also planning to use Dr. Phil for maintenance. I'm about 1/2-way through. I think your husband could find it helpful . . . but those who've finished the book might have more insight about that.

Julie: glad you're staying on track - good for you.

As for American Idol - I'm not a huge Diana fan, but she was excellent last night - perhaps that's the style of singing she should be doing.

I'm now doing a new thing with my weekly rewards - I'm wrapping them so I can unwrap them on WI day! This probably sounds nuts :o , but I though it would be fun and also more motivational to "act out" the idea that good choices reward "me" with better health, etc.

spryng
04-28-2004, 02:52 PM
Good afternoon all!
Just a quick post for me then I am going down for a nap. I got my morning routine done and even scrubbed the toilet and sink area along with my 15 min in my zone so I am happy with that. I need to work on laundry some time today.
Leigh, I'm only on pg 28 of the drphil book... so much reading before you actually get to the diet part. But it's pretty good. I think wrapping your rewards is a great idea. Makes it more of a special treat to you. Anything that helps you stay motivated it a great thing :)
Crystal, that wrap you had was very high in calories. The regular grilled chicken wrap is about 650 cals!! So add the calories for the cheese and the bacon and you are looking at about 750-800 calories easy. You may want to check their site out to find out for sure though. Did you get it in a reg tortilla or the low carb one? PS... I just went to sonics site and the chicken club wrap on the low carb tortilla is 550 cals and 30 g of fat! Low carb never means low fat huh? HTH
Geri those pictures were too cute! I loved the spaghetti one!
Michelle, if you are getting tired of atkins then I think it is great to switch to WW! That is what I did. I went from atkins to WW. How long have you been on atkins? Have you completed your induction? Just be prepared for a carb shock when you switch over and allow your body to adjust. You may not lose weight at first or lose slowly until your body adjusts. Or it may do just fine. :)
Cindi I can't wait to hear all about your Wi on friday! Sounds like it will be great! I know what you mean about eating bad for a day or two and then still losing weight. Our bodies are very adaptable like that. But they say as long as you eat right 80% of the time you will lose weight and I think we are all striving to do that. How many crunches do you do?
Well, guess that is about it for me. Going down for an hour or so. TTYL!

MichelleRae
04-28-2004, 03:40 PM
Spryng I started Atkins on 4-8 so 3 weeks I've passed through induction, I mean I really want to stick with it but her lies my problem: I felt good for the second week of atkins and had lots of energy, but it seems this 3rd week I have been dwindling again and it could very well be that the dosage of thyroid hormone I'm on just isnt high enough or it could have something to do with the diet but I'm not sure but I'm gonna at least stick with it until my doctors appointment on Friday and see if maybe she thinks I should do something else to lose weight, its hard for me to find things that work for me because of my medical history and how long I spent on bedrest (just over a year) But weight watchers sounds like it would allow me to eat some of my favorite foods and since (i think, correct me if I'm wrong) that veggies and fruits dont count I love fruit and vegetables, orrrrrrr (lol) maybe I just can't commit but I dont think thats it cuz I've done really well for the last 3 weeks on atkins I just need to get my metabolism fixed with my meds it what I think needs to happen. And besides all of that I've been having chest pain and trouble breathing lately (I have pulmonary sarcoidosis) so I feel like If I dont lose the weight I'm just not going to wake up some day ok ok but thats a whole different story (I have a tremendous fear of death) Ok so I'll stop there for now lol sorry had to get all these thoughts out of my head and it works for me for the time being.

I will ttyl!!

Well good afternoon everyone. Hope you have a good nap, Spryng :)

I actually got on top of lots of stuff today . . . I'm amazed. Kitchen is clean, one load laundry done/folded, one load about to go in dryer, another about to begin. It really piles up when we have visitors.

At first, with the Flylady stuff, I thought: "Is she crazy? I don't have the time for all this." But, somehow I do have the time. It's kind of amazing :lol:

DH is out of town, so it's a low-cal frozen meal for dinner tonight.

Hello again!
Michelle, you don't have to justify why you want to switch to WW. As long as you are happy then that is all that matters and if Atkins is wearing you down and you are missing your favorite foods then by all means switch! It's the result that matters, fat gone forever so however we choose to run this race is up to us. :) And yes some veggies are 0 pts, like green beans and broccoli and such but most fruits are 1-2 pts each. A medium apple is 1 pt. There is a 0 pt soup you can make and have anytime you feel hungry. But talk to your doctor if you like and see what he/she says and then go from there. But you do what is best for you!
Leigh, it is weird how easy flylady fits into our life isn't it? She is the best! lol. And yes I did have a great nap, thanks. :)
Well I may be missing AI tonight myself. SIL called and wants me to come over and take pictures of FIl's dump truck. They want to make some t-shirts and such with it on it. And because I'm the only one with a digital camera they want me to do it and print it out (like it's free or something) for them. Ugh. I'm half tempted to call and say no. They only call me when they want something and I'm tired of it. So I guess I'll have to set the vcr to tape. Sucks. I like being home in the evenings and doing my own thing you know? Maybe I'm being selfish. Who knows.
I made spaghetti for dinner tonight and it hit the spot. Very good. The kids helped me make it. It was cute watching them butter the bread and pour the sauce into the pan. They ate better too because they helped make it (my plan all along, lol)
Ok, well I guess I'll get off here.
Ginny how was your day? WI????
TTYL!

Loveliam
04-28-2004, 07:10 PM
Spryng - I like doing my own thing in the evening too - maybe because I'm more of a morning person - by the end of the day I'm wiped out! So, with three wee ones on your hands, you must be even more tired than I am!

DH gets home around ten tonight - hooray! He was out of town for work. Right now, I'm praying and hoping that he is okay . . . they found trace amounts of blood in his urine at a routine physical and it's not an infection (they tested it). Now they're doing other tests to figure out what's going on. It can be nothing, a kidney stone, an enlarged prostate, or cancer. I've been a bit stressed, to say the least. His other blood work is very good, so I kind of doubt it's cancer (wouldn't his white blood cell count be high??), but it's still scary. I hesitated even mentioning this, but I've come to feel close to ya'll so I wanted to vent a bit.

This is a quick post, I just got my sink shining and Smallville comes on in 30 minutes, I want to take a breather before in hopes to ride my stationary bike during.

Most of you have had a good day, that's nice to see.

Leigh, glad you've gotten so much accomplished.

Dinner was okay, the kids have been pains today so my dinner was eaten while cold therefore didn't eat that much. Can't wait for these things to go to bed tonight. It's one of those days that I feel like I want to put cotton in my ears, close my eyes and sleep til tomorrow for a new day. Even after eating that lunch from Sonic, I'm still at about the same calorie count as usual. I've got a few to spare for a snack tonight.
I'll check in again after the kids go to bed and be able to address everyone. Hope all are doing well.

I got a coupon in the mail from WW today, $120 for 16 weeeks. I think I am going to join. Maybe is I spend some money on it I will make myself more accountable. I just have to figure out what day works the best.

What a week! DH has a cyst on the buttocks that got infected. It had to be lanced and I have been changing the dressing 3 times a day. You would think that would kill my appetite, but it stressed me to eat more. Hope I didn't gosh you out. He is doing much better. Anyway I am exhausted. No appt tomorrow so I think we will just stay at home.

Will get back soon, this is my only therapy right now. He is intercoming me again.

thank god John Stevens was voted off this week I'm so glad people are starting to vote on talent. Anyway today was good 'cept for my little breakdown this afternoon and then my sudden appearance of pink eye LOL my whole family has now had it and I'm the last and hopefully it won't take another turn round the circle lol.

Anyway I'm just relaxing for today and I think I'm gonna watch Mona Lisa Smile before I go to bed.

Glad to have you back Melinda hope your DH is getting better fast. :D

Good evening all!
Oh Michelle! You could never bore us!! We love rants and vents and rambling on about nothing here...lol :) So sorry you have pink eye! Yes the rest can get it again so wash your hands constantly ok? I was glad John Stevens was voted out too. He is a sweet kid but not enough talent for the music industry. And sooo glad to see Diana not in the bottom 3. I really like her.
Melinda, let us know what you decide about WW. Sounds like a great deal. And yes maybe having to pay for it will help you stay motivated, plus going to the meetings should be encouraging too. That cyst sounds nasty! Aren't Dh's lucky to have women like us to change the dressings on their butts when they need us, lol. You deserve some flowers and a night out for that. :) I hope he appreciates it.
Crystal, maybe it's just a day for bad kids. My 3 yo was horrible this afternoon. He got me so stressed out that I stayed home tonight. I called off the tanning for this evening and I didn't do that picture thing. I just wanted to be alone here. But as the evening went on he got better until bedtime. But now he's asleep so he's a little angel, lol. I hope your evening got better too.
Ginny so glad to see your post!! I hope things settle down for you soon so that we can see you more often. :)
Leigh, so glad your DH will be home tonight! And I hope he is just fine. When will you get the results back on his testing? I'll keep you guys in my thoughts.
Well, guess I will hop in bed now. So glad today is over. Did great on my eating, still no exercise :devil: did great with flylady and now I'm ready to call it a night. I hope everyone sleeps well and I will talk to you all tomorrow! G'nite!
