Good morning. Wednesday here by my calender, the 26th of January.

We are getting socked in again this morning, another 10 inches on top of the 2 feet over the weekend. Kids had school yesterday, but are out again today....

I am all caught up on my auction work, I have to check the web sites but I am waiting for people to do the data entry.

Listening to a good book. I am almost done with the new John Grisham, Back to the corrupt lawyer thing he does well. I will look for a new book today. So another day at home with the kiddos....

PS little man left his snow stuff at school, might have to give him older boy's stuff and give older boy MY snow pants!

later to all the chickies, hope you are having a good week
-L

Good morning, L144S. I have been watching the TV shots of the snow you East Coasters have and am very impressed! We have had some snow but mainly have siffered from very very low temps. It was -27F overnight so I am loading the woodstove very often and freezinbg my tush off doing it! can I borrow your snow pants, please?

Hersh seems to be getting back to normal after her operation. She has another week before the stitches come out but is still having gentle play periods with Lucy and being her usual affectionate and cuddly self. I must admit I was very worried about her when she seemed groggy for so long after the operation.

You chicks won't believe this but I am finally exercising! Granted it's only for 5 minute periods on the treadmill but still it's something. Between that and the knee exercises from the physiotherapist, I intend to be in great walking and gardening shape by spring! Remember you read it here first!

Today is Lug The Garbage To The Road Day as well as HUMP day so I'd better bundle up and get out there. When it's this cold, I try to make only one outdoor trip per day.

Hugs to all.

Thanks for starting us up this week, L. Been a very busy week and I just haven't had the energy to do it.

Man, Ruth, you had me shivering just READING about those temps! Glad that your fur baby is feeling better.

L - Great news about being caught up on the auction work. Hope the kids have fun in the snow.

Hi, Dottie - how is the audit going?

Hello to Meowna. You sound like you have a lot on the ball even if you do carry around a very full plate. I'm impressed with you...

Hi, Sue - How is your week going?

*waves* to everyone else that lurks here.

I cut my right index finger pretty bad on Saturday evening cutting french bread for the boys. I probably should have gotten a few stitches in it but I was doing the 'ol "it's not really that bad" routine. It finally stopped seeping thru the bandaid TUESDAY! Now I'm going to have to deal with a side-split nail and try not to catch it on something and rip if off 'til it grows out enough. *sigh* It's always something....

And if I don't start my period by Friday, I'm not responsible for my actions. I'm just sayin'.

Ok - everyone have a very nice hump evening. No, not like that, unless ya want to.

Kel

hya all-
we are off-line at work right now and it's really cramping my style! I miss it more than usual since it's hard to use the one at home as well.

Kel- I know the cut you mean! I did it to myself cutting a lime a few years ago and still have a little white line on the side of my finger, that went into the nail... it did heal without stitches, but I kept it taped well for a long time.

L- we just got 2 more inches when you got the 10, plus it was warm for part of yesterday so there was some melting on the street and sidewalks that helped. But it's back down to 7 degrees this morning!

Ruth, I know 7 degrees doesn't mean anything to you! And you're such a jock, that you probably don't feel the cold anyway! My DH says there's a sign in some guy-gym some where that says "no cursing, no spitting, no quitting" Do you want me to needle point it for you to hang over the treadmill?

hi L, I'm looking for the Grisham next. I'm listening to "Reading Lolita in Tehran," great but long...

Audit going well...my individual specialist survey is over, and went very well. The rest of the hospital continues til Friday, but I am relaxing a bit.

No other real news...counting down to take MIL home in Feb...thinking of going to Florida for a week the first week of March...and many fantasy's about home improvement plans for after we get our tax refund!

AND big news- I have lost 2 more lbs! I am very pleased, as it happened without really meaning it. I think from ALOT of snow shoveling this weekend, combined with switching to soup for lunch at work. I am snacking but keeping them low fat when they are carby, like pretzels. I am down 5.5 lbs. from Jan 1.

enough. time to get out the door!
have a great one,
dottie

just time for a quickie hello- came by to see what's happening. I guess you're all frozen up (except Kel) like we are here, 5 degrees overnight last night. It's not that bad cause it's so dry and not windy. But my furnace runs and runs! What will the oil bill be this year?

continuing on my soup and yogurt diet. This was born out of convenience and has taken hold. A sugar free dannon in the morning with plain oatmeal or cottage cheese around 10. Then 1/2 can soup of my choice at lunch, and I finish the can in the aftenoon when I'm hungry. I guess I've just been too busy to graze...

that's it, gotta run
have a good one,
dottie

Um.....it's -27F here this morning and we are out of firewood. Anychick want to bundle up and go out to the barn for me? I'll pay big bucks and even give you one of my dogs. They are cold and they have fur coats! Hmmmm - maybe I can wear my mink and fur hat to go out there.
Off to the doc for my annual this morning and going to ask for a heated speculum!
Happy TGIF!

-27 is that celsius?

ok, you win! but our 5f is making my furnace work! that trip to the barn for wood sounds mighty inviting, but maybe I'll wait til AUGUST!

nothing new here. I have been struggling with a toothache and hope the dentist can see me today- I am taking more Advil than one should...you know you're in trouble when you WANT to go to the dentist!

Other than that, just some cooking and a run to the store. I want to start getting the taxes ready, pay some bills on-line, and maybe schedule plane tickets for Florida at the end of the month.

dull, but dull is nice sometimes, you know?

monday morning...hi on my way out the door...

I have to post to make myself accountable for having a good week, food-wise. the weekend eating was a little heavy on the carbs, but I am going back into a more balanced mode that has been working for the last few weeks. Yogurt, soup, cheese, and triscuits during the day, with a protein and a veg for dinner. there. I said it. I'm ready to go!

have a good one,
dottie

Morning to you Dotti and all to lurk and post,

Little man has no school so we have a few errands to run and a little fun planned for the day. DH took older boy to school so I have time for a cup of coffee before I get dressed and do a little bit of work.

Life is good, but cold, I am not loving winter although I WOULD go to the barn for you Ruthie if I lived closer because I know you would do it for me....
Have a good day chickies, come on in and chat.

tuesday morning-just having my coffee before getting into the shower and out the door. Hi, L- I'm getting tired of the cold as well. Time for a southern vacation! I have friends who go to baseball spring training in FL and I am going down for a little break at the end of Feb...can't wait to get someplace warm and get into the pool.

not much new...finishing a few last MD appointments for MIL, then she goes home in a couple of weeks. She is antsy to get going, but I don't feel she can drive or do laundry, but we will take her home anyhow, and then go down to fill in with the chores as needed. It'll be nice to have my house back! She's just as eager to get to her own apartment, but she's been talking about being lonely there. I think she'll miss living with us, but wants her independence and to have her own things around her.

that's it...today is yogurt, beef barley soup, cheese, and then chicken and spinach for dinner. Didn't do great yesterday, OD'd a bit on Cheeze-itz, can't wait for them to be GONE!

have a good one,
dottie

Hi!

Dottie - That is wonderful that your MIL will be recovered enough to be in her own home soon. Yes, she will probably miss you guys but she has also probably been missing her home as much as you have been missing yours. lol

Ruth - Goodness! I hope you guys get a bit of a warm-up up there! You are doing great with your weight loss and treadmill work. I've just GOT to get into a routine and start jumping on mine daily.

L - I'm with you on missing warmer weather. The last couple days we've FINALLY had some sunshine and it has been a wonderful mood-lifter but I do wish those temp would move up. (I know, I know - it doesn't really get 'cold' in Cali. compared to the rest of the country but it's cold to us!)

I'm going to do something daring and ask a guy out for coffee today - wish me luck. (no, no, no - I'm not going to just grab some guy off the street. I've been talking with this one for a while now.)

Have a great day all! My boys have baseball tryouts starting today - I'm excited!

Kel

Just checking in. It's finally "warmed" up to above 0F - practically balmy! I know I've been whining about the weather but it definitely is justified. Thanks Henry Ford for putting heated seats in my Focus!

Dottie, Florida sounds great. I am sure you will really need the break after the past few months. I can imagine you and MIL will be glad when things get back to normal although she will be lonely.

L144S, thanks for the offer to go to the barn for me! I wish! We are running out of firewood. Would you like to come up and split and stack some for us?

Kel, I'm glad to hear you aren't just grabbing guys off the street although it IS a thought. Have a good coffee time with your friend.

Meowna, has the snow melted yet?

I just tried to do the floor exercises for my knee and failed miserably! I hurt when I lie on the floor even with the mat. I think I'll need to get a foam pad or something and maybe do it on the couch in the bathroom. Yes, I have a very large bathroom with a built-in couch. Small house but big bathroom!

I'm off to pick up the newspaper and the mail and them may try to get some of the snow off the back deck. February 1st brings us one month closer to spring which usually doesn't show here until the end of March but who knows?

Have a good Tuesday.

hello chickies,
Good to see you.

I have been busy sitting on my butt doing auction work. I HAVE to find the time to exercise again. I miss it, I am just having the winter blues and having trouble motivating.

Dottie,
Good news! I hope it all goes smoothly.
Kel! Do tell who is the lucky gent to be spending time with OUR kel?

Ruth, carring wood is one thing chopping and splitting is pushing friendship just a little too far. Don't you have a bunch of "lads" up there in the great white north that you can BUY the wood already split from?

off to get the kiddos to bed. Little man is a little bit under the weather....
