Default Tuesday Twitterings - August 31

It's very quiet in this house this morning. I didn't get a middle of the night potty call from the Girls so.....it may be a puddle morning or they may be just fine! Lucy is starting to look really preggy - she isn't that big but she is getting boobs. She keeps checking them out and saying "WTF!". I wish Hershey would explain it to her.

Not much new. Yesterday was very rainy so, aside from a script meeting, I stayed home. I had a nap, cooked, read, made phone calls and spent a relaxing day. I also sent in a huge order for spring bulbs! I get silly over garden catalogues!

Sarah comes for outside work this morning. We will go to the Church and pick up any leftover plants. I'll have her plant them in their pots in the back garden. Then in the spring, they can be just dug and be ready to go to the Spring sale! Sarah is getting close to being hired by a Brockville plant so I need to get as much work done as possible. I will be delighted if she gets a real job but will miss her help.

Well, it's still wet on the deck and a bit cool on the wicker on the porch so let's just sit around my big kitchen table and chat this morning.

Morning Ruth and the rest of you chicks yet to come. I am justing sitting here thinking about all the things to do and not really wanting to do anything. Need to get organized this week as school is next week. My house looks like I don't know what hit it. I have been helping the new Home and School president for the school get organised for the new year. I have a dozen things to get ready for the up and coming fundraising year for DD dance troupe. I have a dance meeting tonight. I need to get my own dance music and routines ready as my classes start next sat. I can't seem to get in the mood to do any of it. Hopefully next week when the house is quiet. Oh well I am sure it will work out.

Ruth I wish I had your green thumb and I wish that I could really sit at your kitchen table have a cup of tea and then visit in your gardens. I am so very jealous. I have a indoor green thumb. My front porch looks like a jungle. But when it comes to the outside I am not so good.

Well must go my little sara is screaming at everyone... I wish I would wake up and it would be Tuesday (next Tuesday that is.).... the first day of school.

Cool

Hi All,
I don't normally post in the daily thread but I feel like I know you all already from 'lurking' here. Hope you don't mind another Beacher at the table!

My kids, DD 14 and DS 13, are both squeezing the last bits out of summer vacation before school starts next week. DD had a sleepover, waking everybody else intermittently throughout the night with raucous laughter. DS can't get enough of his bicycle. In reality the school day is only 6-7 hours long, leaving plenty of free time to continue summer activities in September, but you would think they were about to be sent to boarding school or something.

You all sound so busy and productive. You've inspired me to dig into some furniture painting I've been putting off. At least with a brush in my hand I won't be grabbing off plan foods.

Hope everybody has a good day.

Of course you can pop into the daily thread, Heidi! We have no private threads on The Beach.
Thanks for the painting comment - I must get the new frames around my new windows primed this week.

Good morning, Chicks~~

Well, the end of another month is upon us. September here in Georgia typically ushers in a break in the weather just after Labor Day. We can start looking forward to days in the low 80's and mid to high 70's with nights dipping down into the 50's.

This is the time of year my batteries recharge and I get a burst of energy and enthusiasm. Now that the park a few miles away is complete, DH and I will start taking evening walks with our girls and let them meet all the other fur babies in the neighborhood.

Yesterday was pretty good, work-wise. No crabby patients, no crabby doctor, no hard sticks and it wasn't SRO as soon as I unlocked the door!

I finally completed the now infamous chemo hat and will be calling the lady to come get it today. Back to working on Carmencita's hot pink/purple socks.

Ruth, coffee around the table with you and the rest of the chicks sounds great. Pass me the Splenda please!

Good morning Little Chick and Kiko!

Hope all you chicks have a great day on the Beach!

Mamacita

Happy Tuesday everyone...

Another work day...groans. LOL. I am pumped about my 2nd day on The Beach. It's amazing how much better I feel even after the first day. Accomplished that I am getting things under control for the day (at least). I decided to set a mini goal of 15 pounds by October 11th...that's the motorcycle toy run... and I can't wait.

Have a great day girls!

good morning chickies,
the sun is shining and it looks like it will be a beauty here today for a change. i am feeling so unorganized i lost a bunch of forms for school which isn't like me at all. i tore the house apart last night looking for them. it really makes me mad but 3 different kids in 3 different schools with 3 different sets of forms and i am used to only one procedure. hopefully i will get it together soon. my little ds starts school tomorrow (thank goodness) and that will be all 3 in safe and sound. i'm back in the groove of lunch making so no problem staying op during the day at least.

welcome to heidi and yaya so nice to see you posting in the daily!!!

mama congrats on completing the cap!!!

ruth i'm in for coffee this morning anything i can do to put off starting work today.

lc sounds like you have another busy year ahead of you with the dance troup. hang in there tuesday will be here in a blink!!

hi kiko!!

hope all you chicks yet to post have a great op day!!

Morning ladies,
Can I just tell you how exhausting entertaining is...or at least getting ready to entertain. Housecleaning is not my thing that for sure. I can't imagine what's going to happen when we buy a place that's bigger than this...YIKES!

It's a lovely day here in NoVA. We didn't get as much of the Gaston as we were supposed to. Looks like the weekend will be dry and mild for my guests. I am trying to plan as many meal at homeas possible so it will be easier for me to stay on plan. Eating is always a challenge since there are sooooo many tempations.

Well gotta run and jump in the shower. Have a great day everyone!
Sheila

Yick! I just tried a coffee that dear Harry poured for me and.............he put in meat tenderizer instead of Splenda! His cylinders are still not firing properly, I guess.

Oh well! life is a giggle sometimes. A few weeks ago he put away the electric frying pan - in the freezer! At least the cord was there too!

We are back to looking like rain. Sarah has not shown which likely means she got a call about a job. Her lazy mother is probably supposed to call me but she sleeps until about 10:30! That woman is in chronic social failure! I hope Sarah breaks the cycle.

Sorry! That sounds snotty! Now I'll go back to being nice for a while.

Ruth, your day sounds lovely! <happy sigh> Hope things continue to be peaceful. : Love your description of Lucy. I can totally see my dog looking like that! I gave her a green bean last night (it fell on the floor), and she kept picking it up and walking around, looking like this: then dropping it and trying to pick it back up. Finally she looked at me like, "What the is this thing?"

Kiko, you're cracking me up! You sounds like you're reporting in to "mein commandant, sir!" I hope you have a wonderful, wonderful day!

Ah, LC, you're having a hard summer! I am so glad that you came and posted anyway, hon! I'm glad your sense of humor is still intact! I SO know that feeling...that's why my bathroom is still not scrubbed, the bunnies are living with fur-dust-bunnies bigger than them, and the living room smells like wet dog! I say we both move to Ruth's for a month. Ruth, care to run a sanitorium for overworked women? LC, maybe you and I can take over Sarah's job in return for room and board?

Heidi, you are ALWAYS welcome! And welcome to any lurkers who haven't posted...please feel free! And don't feel like you have to write back to everyone...then this thread will be longer than even I can make it! We love having new people in the daily! I love your plans, Heidi...keeping your hands busy means you aren't eating off plan...and that's a good thing! I spent last night working on the binding of my baby quilt, and that kept me from snacking last night.

Mama, I'm SO glad that you finally got a good day at work! You overworked phlebos deserve major breaks! If I was around, I would be bringing you SBD-friendly treats! Your walks in the park and the upcoming weather both sound lovely! <happy sigh> Enjoy them! Our pup is finally starting to feel secure around other dogs. She wants to check them out! Big change from how she was when we got her! Good going on finishing that cap! Sounds gorgeous! I'd love to see pics...hint, hint!

Yaya, welcome! : Sounds like a great mini goal! What is a motorcycle toy run? And with what will you reward yourself for reaching your goal?

Jodi, that's a lot of stuff to keep track of! Hope everything falls into place, and glad that your routines are coming back to you. Fall is such a nice time, isn't it?

Sheila, sounds like your guests are in for a wonderful weekend! : I feel you on cleaning...a bigger house means MORE cleaning! Enjoy your time with your guests! When do they arrive?

Me:
Well, yesterday I did a tough workout with weights all morning. Then I read a bunch in the Ladies Who Lift forum, and got inspired. Last night I didn't have a therapy appt. (my forgetfulness...the one with DH is on 9/8, not yesterday), so I decided to do the basic dance video from my Belly Dancing collection. WOW! It was a lot of fun, and not really a workout, persay, but tough, nonetheless. And this morning, my thighs are killing me!!! Ow! Ow! I'm just hoping they'll be back in shape for Jazzercise!

The students come this Thursday and Sunday, and school starts next week. I work at a college, so this is a crazy-busy time of year. I start classes next week too...I'm a grad. student. Anyways, last night was a nice, relaxing evening...one of the kind I'm unlikely to have until next summer! I made dinner with DH (we rarely work together in the kitchen) and we had a great meal (Thai Steak Salad Wraps from the August Cooking Light), then cleaned up, I made the Lemon Basil Bean Bowl (recipe in forums) for the week, did my bellydancing, then watced the "Last Comic Standing" show for an hour while working on the binding of my baby quilt. I only have one side left and it will be done!

Wow, yesterday I was really craving carbs! I made this awesome dinner on Sunday and I really wanted a piece of it! It was a calzone made of WW pizza dough full of spinach, feta, pine nuts, and golden raisins. Yummmm! It was a hard day. I had to convince myself that I really wanted the club salad I had planned for lunch. I was trying to make deals with myself all morning...I could eat dinner without the wrap if only I could have the calzone in the fridge... I hate when I get whiney that way! I ended up going to lunch at 1:15 instead of my normal 12:00 because I was afraid I'd eat the wrong stuff! Thankfully, I resisted, and the scale was down a little today. TOM isn't over yet, so I'm hoping this is "a foretaste of the feast to come!"

Today I'm going to meet Sarah (AdiaFaith) for lunch, as she works nearby. That should be fun! Meeting other 3FCers is great...so nice to have people IRL who understand this journey we are all on!

Have a great day everyone!

Morning, everyone! I did okay last night. I ate the amount of pizza that I had planned and drank lots of water. I stayed FAR away from the brownies because, BOY, did they look good! Thank goodness this was the last event this week that involves food.

I'm still at 171 this morning which I think is great considering I've had non-OP pizza two days in a row! I'll post my August weightloss after I weigh tomorrow morning. I can always hope I go down a little more.

Default You are all so productive!

Ladies, how do you do? Gosh, I couldnít even bring myself to make coffee this a.m., despite buying a nice sugar free caramel syrup yesterday. I am so exhuasted, work, LSATs, family, other responsibilities. I really really really hope that when I have a family, a house, a career, etc. as you all do that I am half as motivated and productive and still sound so nice! I have an awful feeling that I will be a harpy. Ugh!

I had a gorgeous wake up this a.m. by a jackhammer, which is probably my reason for the awful mood. I also was bad all weekend long, and ate OP. Back to reality on Monday. TOM is coming too, so I am just super witchy. I apologize for the whining. Especially when everyone else manages to remain so chipper!

Anyway, it is nice to see that somewhere in the world, there are happy people this a.m. Perhaps a day at the beach will help me!
