I should be all rested and refreshed from my decadent day of being a couch potato yesterday, but I could sure go for another day of it. But I'm going to be good and get myself to Curves this morning, then getting in gear for a long day with my girlies. No idea what kind of mischief we'll get into today, but I'm sure we'll find something fun to do.
What's happening on your part of the the beach today?
Morning! i'm being bad, not in the boot.. but i'm sick of the damn thing...
bagel is sick. not sure what.. he's half off his food... he is staggering around WHEN he gets up... he can't climb. I have no idea how i'm going to get a lame 120 pound dog to the vet...
brian is also staggering around. July 5, he fell when a chair he was sitting on broke and he landed on his tailbone. it bruised up nicely. well the bruise is gone but he's still in major pain and yesterday he reported some popping sound/feeling when he got up... so i have to call the ortho for him.
figuring the vet will wanna see bagel today i got to work at 6!
on the beach since May 1, 2006
added Points August, 2008
Having RNY September 22, 2009
Ladybug, take them both to the vet! So sorry your day sounds like crap.
Cottage, I'm sure you'd love another day of convalescence but....too bad we were brought up to be adults.
Feeling rested this morning after a nap yesterday and a solid sleep - no transports roaring down my road. The Fairgound is an absolute mud pit as a lot of the trucks got stuck trying to get out. Good old Leeds County clay! Art and the lads have a lot of grading and seeding to do to get it back in shape.
Not much on my schedule today. I may do more pressure washing, I want to get more reading at the Library and may make a cake for the freezer. I have a BD party Friday in Ottawa and know Ross would love my rum cake. It improves with freezing so.... I guess I should post it in Food Porn.
Have a Terrific Tuesday!
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?
Cottage - Glad things went smoothly yesterday. Have fun with the girls
Nessa - Eek! Good luck today.
Ruth - Sounds like you're still taking some time for you, definitely a good thing. I'm curious to see that recipe. A Scottish friend makes a rum cake that's quite tasty. Luckily it's not the sort of thing I'd ever make here.
However I would make - chocolate berry fruit leather! I'll let you know how it turns out. I was getting a little punchy by the last batch last night and tossed some cocoa powder in. Tasted pretty good at that point. There's even a little container that didn't fit in the trays that is going in my oatmeal this morning!
I'm trying to save samples of things for our food preservation workshop. We finally found someone willing to do the canning piece for us so we're moving forward.
Today is a work at home day for me. I've got a chiropractor appt. this morning and it's easier to work at home those days since she is 2 miles from my house. I'll get some more zucchini in the dehydrator while I'm here.
Have a good day all!
Baby steps, losing the holiday excess first.
Maintaining 48 lb loss since 2008, working off regain to a sensible maintenance level. 60+ lbs and counting!
Cottage - ahhh....downtime! Decadent is the perfect word!
Nessa - ugh! Good luck with the pup (first thing in my mind....Lyme?). Hope you're feeling okay today!
Ruth - I giggle every time I read the phrase "food porn". Maybe my husband will think I'm doing something naughty?
Cyndi - when can I come over?!
Me - same ole, same ole (but that's a good thing, right?). Off to work. I think it's not too busy of a day, so I can maybe go to the gym for a run. Nothing exciting planned so far, let's hope it stays that way!
Good Morning all... wanting to make my coffee, but my nephew is sleeping on the couch and when I wake him up doesn't seem like he can get back to sleep to easily. I forgot to grind the beans last night before going to bed. SIGH
Yesterday I brought him and Jade to Boughten Park. It's nothing fancy, just a very nice hike around three huge ponds (some call them lakes, but they are too small to be a lake). It is a good hour and a half hike with small steeps to climb up and down for a very nice work out. I like it there cause Jade is allowed to be offleash so I can let her run and tire her out for the day! I felt so bad for her being left that long I've been doing extras with her to get back on her good side .
I believe Clair and her family to be coming out tomorrow (will be confirmed today which day they are coming) for a hike in one of the gully's I showed you all last week or the week before! I'm excited! Her family, two of their friends makes 10 folks, me, my nephew and hopefully my son will be 13! What a crew to go hiking, and of course I'll bring Jade. Only thing with bringing the dog is I don't think she'll be able to climb up to see the other two falls, which I wanted to see. Thats alright, we'll enjoy the first falls, maybe with the three younger kids.
Zef...how did it go with the car today? (I hate when they take advantage of women!) have you had your hubby take it in?

Was up way to early and got in the walk already. Going to go make egg muffins for the swim this morning. It looks like a good day has begun for all hopefully it will stay that way. I got the girls room done yesterday!!!!! Took me a month from start to finish but it is done now onto the boys' room... in a week don't think it will get all done before school starts.
no time for personals. Son is sick and I have to take him to BR to the doctor at LSU. He had a bladder infection that now seems to have moved in his kidneys. He had a high fever last night that broke in the middle of the night.
I went on an interview for a 1st grade teaching position yesterday afternoon Turns out the principal is an old friend who I went to college with and taught with in the early days (we both have "new" last names and didn't recognize each other till we saw each other in person.) She wants me for the job, but had already offered it to someone else who had yet to call her back and accept. She was going to call them and find out if they still wanted it and if not, it's mine. Very nice looking school and praying I get the job which is only about 7 minutes from my house. Great for gas not having to drive far. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
Nessa glad to see you in the daily, when you mentioned yesterday you might take a break I almost cried! I love seeing your honesty and opinions everyday, your my insperation!
Pearl hope that repair person calls you, still waiting on mine too and mount laundry is growing quickly! Guess the maytag repair isn't as bored as he used to be.
To everyone else, Hello, hope all is well in your world!
I'm sporting a $10 bargin dress I found at the mall, cute little halter type with some big flowers, very tropical! A year and a half ago I wouldn't have been caught dead in it, but today I'm walking tall and struttin my stuff. Too bad my bra has to be pinned to it because I don't have the boobs to hold it up! Hey we can't have it all right?
Good morning chicks, 2 good PH1 days down here. Nothing special going on around here, the usual work, etc. DD1 is babysitting her boss's kid and agreed to do it here since they live 40 minutes away. I found out last night and was mad she didn't consult with me first, since this is my office as well as house. He arrived at 6AM and he's napping now. Seems like a good kid and he's a cute little guy. I think he's around 2YO.
zeff, enjoy Minnesota, My Dad is from Blue Earth. I have an Aunt near Minneapolis another in Elmore, an Uncle in New Richland, and cousins scattered around everywhere. I should get up there for a visit someday, shouldn't I? phx, what are you doing to the rooms? Cleaning and organizing my kids rooms is on my to-do list this summer, but we haven't even started. DS needs some new furniture too.
HELLO weezle! Loriann, sounds like a fun family hike outing! Pearlrose, have a great day. Nessa, glad to see you are posting here. Hope your sickies are better soon.
Have a great day Belle Mer and Twynn! Cyndi, wish I could attend your workshop.
Glad all went well yesterday cottage. Ruth, thanks for the reminder, today is bookmobile day. I've got about 20 pages of World Without End to finish so I can return it. Steph, I bet you look smashing! And a bargain to boot, even better! Cat, good luck with the job, and hope DS feels better soon.
Life's a journey, not a destination.
It's easier to stay on plan than to get back on plan.
