just a little quick one from me this time around.....

Jules~ Very handsome little man!!!

Ellen~ I do my workouts after the kids and my hubby go to bed. I don't like an audience when I work out! My hubby told me that if we ever win the lottery that he is going to get me a gym membership. I told him that if we ever win the lottery, I want a gym at my house! That way I can go and work out whenever I want to and not have to worry about prying eyes checking out my areas that really need to get worked! The work out dvd that I have now, does some of the moves from Turbo Jam, so I am glad that I am getting this chance to prepare those areas for a work out of a different kind! Plus, from what I gather it pretty much looks like a dance party so you never would realize that you are actually working out!

Trish~ It is good to hear that things are going well. What kind of exercise was suggested for the ph balancing? Or do you just do regular exercises? So far I have done my workout dvd on Monday and Wednesday. I love doing it, and for doing it only for the second time on Wednesday I pretty much stayed right along with them until they started doing their "power" moves, then I kept right on trucking at my pace for now.

Good Morning Ladies

Yep Surprise!!! I'm up early this morning with a fly by here. Going to the beauty shop this morning to get a perm. I can't believe it has already been 3 months since the last one. How time flies. Got that this morning and then going to NC to go shopping this afternoon. We are spoiled. Costco has the best tomatoes. Been getting them there or at Sam's for years. Just don't like the flavor or texture of the ones in the store. Plus I like some of the fruit from there as well.

Mindee - I didn't see much about exercise in the ph thing except that moving around instead of a sedentary lifestyle is not good for keeping ph normal. Right now I am using the stationary bike because of my knee. My sister who had knee surgery a few years ago and DD who worked with orthopedics for years told me that the stationary bike is the first thing they put you doing after knee surgery. I remember when my second DH (deceased) Mother had knee surgery they had a machine that they put her on that moved like turning a bicycle to help keep her knee working a day or so after her surgery. I learned yesterday quite by accident that if I miss a day doing using the bike (I only do .3 of a mile right now starting slow) that my knee acts up. I just never had time to do it yesterday and it was sore last night. So I have decide to make it into a morning routine (I am a routine person). I will make it one of my it first one of those first things to do in the mornings. In fact, I am going to ride it as soon as I get through here so I don't miss or forget to do it today. It is good that you are doing your exercise at your own pace. It work better for you. The old idea I grew up with is not true "no pain no gain". They now say that it does more harm than good. DH doctor told him to start out with an exercise and do just 2 minutes a day or a week and then add to it as he was able. We started out at .2 miles and I am now up to .3 this week. This is one reason we have started getting more actve... going shopping etc because for some reason it is more fun and easier to walk around a place like Wal-Mart for an hour than it is to do actual walking in the neighborhood. Aren't we strange creatures? LOL

Better get busy. Got to leave in an hour. Y'all have a great day!!!

Hugs,
Trish

Hi ladies,

Jules - what a little darling! He's so sweet, I could just sop him up with a biscuit!

Trish - seems like a perm should last more than 3 months, but what do I know, lol. Maybe they should call them a Temporary, instead of a Permanent, haha. Yay for you, staying OP.

Tammy - yay for you, staying OP. I'm doing better, too. The wedding is Aug. 9. Now Clint's aunt says she isn't going to use all of Katie's colors in the bouquets! Oh dear.

Ellen - I'm a voracious reader, too. Right now, I'm re-reading a John Grisham novel. I also like Sue Grafton, and many others. I love Chicago, and have taken the Amtrak up there several times. My buddy and I went just last Nov. Have fun with your friend today.

Marti, Mindee, Cristina, Sue, Angie, Mary Kate, and anyone else reading this -

I was supposed to meet my niece in town today, for lunch, but put it off until next Thursday. Seems like all I've done is run to town and back, and since I have a meeting tonight, I just wanted to stay home, and chat with you!

I've been busy with phone calls regarding the wedding. So many details, but I'm loving it.

Later, taters!

hello ladies....how are you all doing?

nothing new on this end.....Tommy got his court date in the mail yesterday for the ticket that he was given from the accident. So, we are going to get a babysitter for that day so that we both can go. The kids are doing great. Brandon got up and had underwear on this morning......until about 15 or so minute ago when he had an accident in them. He wanted a diaper back on, so maybe he is going to fall asleep now. Logan has been very well behaved since he got his blocks taken away for hitting Marissa with them. And Miss Princess is getting ever so closer to crawling forward with each passing day! She goes backwards like a champ.....but still prefers the rolling around method as oppose to crawling, so far.

Trish~ I need a haircut.....I have been telling myself that I need one. but Marissa keeps grabbing it and yanking, so it is time to go for a short look again. I have been meaning to do a search online to see if there are any websites that have some looks that I like. I do have pictures from when I got a makeover done my senior year of high school that I loved the cut and style. So, I am hoping that I can find someone that will be able to replicate the look for me. Tommy called the style my attitude hair.....so it should be interesting to see if the attitude comes out again when if I get the same style. That sounds like me.....I have this new work out DVD that I started doing on Monday. I had a hard time falling asleep and staying motivated on Tuesday because I didn't do the DVD. So, for now, I am just doing it Monday, Wednesday, and Friday....I will bump it up to probably doing it every day once I get more used to it and more sure of myself about it. I have to agree that it is more fun to walk around Wal-Mart for an hour....but since we live right off the water I like to walk around the neighborhood.....somewhat! This past summer I used to do laps around our apartment complex with the kids while Tommy slept during the day. Boy, do I miss the nice weather!!

Jane~ How are you doing on this fine Thursday?

Mindee - I'm doing fine. Well, I still have a cough that doesn't want to go away, which is very annoying, but I'm ok.

Shopaholic - to the Jaded Ladies group! I think you'll like it here, and you'll have to be sure and tell us about your sailor.

I'm just killing time until Grey's Anatomy comes on later. Finally, not a rerun!

Later, ladies.

Oh, I forgot about Grey's. Wonder how many episodes they have made.

Just a quick pop-in to say we had a great time on our get-away. Couldn't have been better. Well, I guess it could have...we could have won lots of money at the casino. Sadly, that was not the case.

Just tried to get back in the swing of things today. DH and I went to Lowe's and to the grocery store. I did the laundry...as usual.
I plan to go to Wally World tomorrow and then clean house. Nothing very exciting.....but that's my life. Ha.

We tried to go for a walk this afternoon and got about half way around one lap and the rains came down...again. We had waited so long for the rain to stop. Darn! Got plenty wet trying to rush home too.

So, the good news is I was OP. I used my new steamer for veggies and they were quite good. I am going to have to come up with seasonings and different mixtures that are low fat, but I think it is doable.

Jane-We didn't get to do any of the outdoors type things at FL due to the rain and flooding. But, we do plan to go back when the weather is nicer. The hotel was very comfortable. Beautiful too.

Gotta run...talk to you all tomorrow.

HI all! Today was busy, I don't like to be so rushed, but it all worked out. DH hit a pot hole on his way home lastnight, so we traded cars today and I took it in..the rim was too badly damaged, so they ordered us a new one, so it looks like I have the smaller car for the week. After that Cecilia (my baby, she is 4) and I came home and cleaned the kitchen and bathroom, then Veronica came home from school(5yo) and we headed right off to the gym...poor girl, I made her eat her lunch in the car.

After the gym I stopped at the store, got back home in time to receive a call from Ben's(7yo) principal telling me that there had been a fight during recess. I started dinner and about halfway thru my friend calls...she had to cancel because of an emergency with her MIL. I was disappointed, but i hope the MIL is doing ok.

So, we had dinner (spaghetti), watched Dirty Jobs with the kids, then they went off to bed...to my surprise DH was sleeping on the couch...poor guy had to work late yesterday(and fix the flat) and early today. I finished my book by CHris Mooney...he writes like Tom Clancy, and I am thinking of turning in early because DH's alarm kept going off at 4:30am and woke me up.

Wow, I don't usually write this much!

have a wonderful Friday Ladies!!!

I'm excited about Ugly Betty & Grey's Anatomy coming on tonight!! Thursday nights have been sooooooooo boring without my 2 fave shows!!!


My hubby has duty tonight so it kinda sucks being here without him..but then I'm sorta glad because I have the shows to distract me. LoL. And I'm hoping that he found out that the new orders came out today and not tomorrow, because I'm dying to know whats available!!!

hello ladies....how are you all doing?

nothing new on this end....same stuff different day! I am about to go and get some exercise in. I do this DVD that seems almost too easy now....but it still kicks my butt! I am going to look at Wal-Mart to see if there are any more cheap work out DVD's.

Shopaholic~ Welcome to the group!!! What new orders is he waiting for? Or is it classified?

Jane~ I hope your cough goes away soon! Those are the ones that I hate the most.

Sue~ How are you doing? That is great to hear that you had fun on your getaway! I have walked, on occasion, in the rain. I just make sure that it isn't thunder storming out.

Sassy~ How are you doing? Are you avoiding the sickies?

Ellen~ How are you doing? I hope you were able to get some down time on Thursday! You sound just as busy as me, and right now I just chase three little ones around the house!

We're waiting to see where dh will get stationed at for shore duty. And no, its not classified. He sent me a list of places that are currently open..and the place we're dying for has 6 openings, so he's gonna put in for that one!! And I guess we're going to talk about the other places when he comes home tomorrow.

sorry for being nosy, but are in the US or are they abroad? I am guessing since it is shore duty that it might be abroad.

You're not being noisy at all. Some are in the states and some are overseas.
