Happy Thursday!

Time to jump into another day, but it's supposed to be a gorgeous one. I promised Maggie lunch at the park if the weather was nice, and we'll probably stay until it's time to get Audrey. I should be getting home at a decent hour today for a change.

about to happen here too, Linda. I hope you and Maggie have a super day.

Lake Ruthie receded in the night and there's lots more mud than snow out there for a while. Spring has to be here! I'm about to lug the trash to the road and will check out birdsong.

I'm off to the doc this morning and then to town for odds and ends or errands and to buy a birthday gift for my friend Shirleyanne. I'm thinking of getting her a potted orchid as she admires mine. We don't usually do BD gifts but this is her 70th so...... I even have two bottles of champagne and will try to find time to make her a rum cake. We've been friends for over 50 years so she's worth the fuss.

My blood sugar is too low this morning so I need breakfast before I lug trash. See y'all later.

Morning Cottage and Ruth...hope the weather is good for both of you for your outings!

Weather is nasty and windy here. I've gotten some work done, did my fluidity, bathed and dressed and dogs are fed. Now off to some breakfast,make the bed, dishes and laundry started and I'm out the door. May meet a friend for a drink this afternoon if I don't have a big workload when I get home from school...

Have a good one everyone!!

Cat, you made me feel sad. And tired. All that stuff done already! All I've accomplished is to haul my butt out of bed and get to the computer. No coffee yet, I think that's the problem. Also stayed up late last night so I could get my hair colored. Hope you have some time to play this afternoon.

Ruthie, you know what the girl scouts sing. "Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver, but the other's gold." Hope your friend has a wonderful birthday. Bet you guys have a lot of dirt on each other.

cottage, enjoy the park on this beautiful day!

DH took the kids out to the farm where DH does his riding to see a foal that was just born. DS was supposed to be able to watch the birth, but the baby came at 4AM Tuesday morning, so that didn't work out. The baby is soooo cute, reddish, with a star and stockings. And my gray is no longer peeking through. That's all that's new around here! We've got a beautiful day in store too.

Happy Thursday, Chicks!

Cottage: I'm sure Jake will enjoy you getting home earlier tonight. Have a great time at the park!

Ruth: I'm so glad it's dry out here. I don't think I could stand that much mud! I'm sure Hershey is a good girl, though and doesn't mess the house up! Enjoy your friends' birthday. Even though my best friend and I have only been best friends for 10 years, I still thinks she deserves the world on her BD. I agree with what Schmoodle said; and I would love to hear the "dirt"!

Cat: We're clean and clear, but they're forecasting up to 70 mph gusts this afternoon. Sigh. I hate the West Texas Wind. I admire you getting up so early and getting so much done. I feel very accomplished when I wake up in time to iron a shirt for DH in the morning.

Schmoodle: Don't you worry about not waking up early and crossing things off your to-do list right away! It takes all kinds - you and I are night owls, we'll let Ruth, Cat and Cottage get up early and get the world moving...we put it to bed. Enjoy your beautiful day and that foal sounds gorgeous!

Nessa: Congrats on staying under 225, I think you're there for good! Congrats on 11 days of clean eating! You're doing great!! AND congrats on getting that durn boot off!!

Me: I'm shocked this morning as I actually made it up in time to workout, iron a shirt, post here and get to work on time! I'm on fire! Today is just work with some straightening up after, Meatball Casserole for dinner. I'm also meeting a dear friend for lunch. Her and her DH got married a year ago almost to the day and just found out they're pregnant. She's 41 and he's 40. I'm SO happy for them. (First marriage for him, second for her). We're going to a place with a big salad bar, so I should be safe. I think they let you order a la carte, so I may get a roasted chicken breast as well.

DH is doing a little better. I think all of the testing Tuesday traumatized him a little - he's definitely not used to it - so he ended up taking off after lunch yesterday and all day today. I'm happy for him - makes me think he might be human after all. Since Jan. 2006, he's only taken 4 hours off for sickness. Anyhow - he's decided to go ahead and just get the colonoscopy over with, so that's next Thurs., and in the meantime; he's gone on a higher-fiber diet which will probably be good for both of us. We're a lot more optimistic than we were yesterday.

Well, off to the showers!! Hope everyone to come has a great day and here's some for those of us that need it!

~Kim

Good morning. I need some of that WILL POWER DUST here this morning. I have been woefully negligent in my SB eating.

*sigh*

Today's a new day, right? I'm just feeling so low. DH is doing great with working out and eating better (no "diet" for him) and has lost about 11 pounds in the last 4 months. He's looking GOOOOOOOD. Now I keep thinking he looks so much better than I do, I must look like a toad to him.

Can ya tell I'm just down on myself? This is not a good place to be, because then I want to eat to make myself feel better.

Cottage, that sounds like so much fun!!! Wish I could come join you. Some of my favorite memories are having picnics with my family.

Ruth, you are such a dear! I know your friends must feel so blessed to have you in their lives--I know I do! You remind me of SARK!

Gosh, Cat, you do more in a morning than I do in a weekend! You're amazing! Hope you have time with a friend today.

Schmoo, you're in good company, girlfriend! Heck, at this hour, were I not working, I'd still be IN bed! Don't feel bad. What color did you use? The foal sounds absolutely darling!!! I just adore baby animals.

BTW, I bet Schmoo is right about you and Shirleyanne, Ruth! Sounds like that card that says, "You'll always be my friend...you know too much!"

I'm sure a ton of people have posted since I started this reply... to all of you!

Me:
My coworker is coming back from a conference she didn't want to attend, on a flight she didn't want to take (she hasn't flown in 20 years), and is getting back late, so her center isn't open until 10:30. Unfortunately, the students didn't get the message, so they all arrived and were P'O'd at me. I've got a student here who's usually a bit out of sorts since she works nights, then comes straight here without sleep.

Off to the gym after work and then off to Panera for dinner and a meeting of my newcomer's club group. I wish I could have skipped it--there isn't much I can contribute, but I'm missing yoga to go to the meeting. Oh well, guess there's next week!

Hope everyone enjoys the beautiful weather!

Good Morning World!

Cottage, Ruth & Schmoodle Glad to hear you are having good weather today, we are expecting storms.

Cat Your mornings make me tired just reading about them.

Nessa to getting rid of that boot!

Kim Glad to hear things are looking sunnier today.

Fluffy Don't let a mans weight loss get you down, we all know they lose so much faster than us women do. Boys are dumb!

Hey guess what, I was checking myself in the mirror today after getting dressed, you should see the muscles in my calves! Yoga baby!

Time to stop tooting my own horn and get moving! Have a great day ladies!

Good morning everyone.

Cottage-hope you get to make it to the park. It's supposed to rain here today so no park. Besides that, DS1 is suspended from school and now i can't really go anywhere. Aaaahhhh, this sucks.

Ruth-you're a good friend to even remember her birthday. None of my friends (outside of 3FC) remembered. Not even my best friend I have here. Not my friend I've had since the 6th grade. Can you believe that?! I bet you do have alot of dirt on each other. Sounds like you two will have a wonderful day.

Femme-I think you get our bad weather. It was yucky yesterday and last night. It's supposed to thunderstorm here in Houston. I love it but I hate it because DH not home to comfort me when I do get scared.

schmoodle-what is a foal? Yeah, I was happy when I got my hair colored because all my white went away. Now my roots are showing. Almost time for a touch up. The lady does my hair said that I didn't have to pay her for doing my hair the last time and the touch up, she's considering it a birthday present.

nessa-good for you----11 days. I wish I could even do just one day. And congrats on the boot coming off.

kim-congratulations to your friend. How exciting. I love babies, why do you think I have 4? What a special one year anniversary gift. I bet they are excited.

Me-nothing much. DS1 is home from school for 3 days. He got suspended. Long story. I just don't know what to do. I get so frustrated and confused because I have so many people telling me different things as to why he is doing this and what to do about it and I don't know what to do and think anymore. Some people tell me he did it because of issues in the past, it's just rebelious behavior, he needs therapy, he needs a good a-- whipping, you need to sit and talk to him because beating him isn't gonna do it, just yelling at him isn't gonna do it. I just don't know. He is doing things I used to do when I was in high school and he's only in the 2nd grade. Go figure!!!! My mom gave me the mothers curse, everything you did will come back to you through your children. Oh mothers!!! Kara-I do need to look at the website that you requested though. Will look at it today.

Everyone else who I didn't get to-hope you have a wonderful day.

BEAUTIFUL Krystal, this is for you ---> Cut out that kind of thinking right now, missy!!! You are GORGEOUS and I bet the only thoughts DH is having about you are that he wishes you could feel as good as he does. I think what you said above is totally true and we need to avoid that thinking in order to stay on track. Truth is, sometimes I let myself think that way because it allows me to eat more! Let's not sabotage ourselves that way, okay?

We have to learn to love our bodies as they are, IMHO, if we want to get to a healthier weight. We can't wait to be skinny to love ourselves. My food and mood group last night was all about body image and one of the things we talked about a lot was that if we focus on what our body does (i.e. how it moves), we'll have a much better opinion of it than if we just focus on how it looks. Does that make sense? I get the best impression of that when I do yoga. I become so in tune with how my body functions and amazed at the things I can do with it. I also become so thankful for the blessing of having a body that works. I'm sure you're feeling like that right now, Nessa, right? Anyways, step away from the (insert food porn here), Krystal, and go for a workout with DH. You CAN do this!

Nessa, I'm SO thrilled for you that your boot is off!!! That's great! You are doing fantastic with your weight as well and your clean eating!

Kim, I'm SO glad DH is taking time to recover and that you're both feeling more positive. That is SO healing, IMHO. You're in my prayers and I know things will go well. BTW, my DH irons his own shirts because I am a terrible ironer! Your DH is one lucky guy!

Congrats, Pacer, on those gorgeous calves! [insert wolf whistle here] I need to go get me some yoga! You made me think of a card I gave my best friend after a breakup. On the front it said, "Everything we needed to know we learned in kindergarten..." and inside it said, "Boys are stupid." BTW, you're entirely right about them losing much faster than we do. Frustrating, but true.

I hear you, TK, it's really hard to know how to help your child in a situation like that! I do think that your own intuition is very important. Lots of people have good advice, but you and your DH know your son best. However, I think therapy is a good idea for everyone and can't hurt your son. Everyone needs a place to talk about what they're going through with someone who is nonjudgemental and doesn't have any personal involvement with them. Best of all, many therapists have experience dealing with kids who have been in situations like your son's and can give you expert advice on whether they think there may be future problems. I'd ask around with your friends who are parents and at the school for a recommendation of a good children's therapist.

yeah, TK...we get your weather the day after you do. My BIL lives in Houston and called yesterday and said it was heading over to us.

About me getting so much done in the morning...it's just habit. I honestly can't sleep past 5 and usually get up at 4 with my husband because he leaves for work at 4:45. So that gives me 3.5 hours till I have to go to work and I'd rather get stuff over with in the morning than have to face it in the evenings. After I quit working for the day (I shoot for 7) then all I have to do is fold a load of laundry while sitting in bed watching TV and just be "mindless" for a while. I've been stopping work for about 45 minutes in late afternoon for yogilates and it really gives me a last "boost" to work a couple of hours more when I'm worn out. Also keep in mind I don't have kids at home anymore, (except for my youngest who is a senior in college) so there is not as much stuff to do either!

When my kids were little and got me up at the crack of dawn on Saturday mornings, I couldn't wait till they were older so I could sleep late! By the time they got older, I just couldn't sleep late anymore. no fair.

femme-you get the benefit of having a warning of what you're weather will be like.

Has anyone tried the strip tease workout type of thing? I wanna try it but they say it's kind of expensive.
