for even more of an update on his speech, he was actually telling us "toot toot" for a train horn! I can't wait for his report card/progress report on Tuesday!

Brandon was sitting on my lap on Saturday while I was on myspace. I brought up Anna's, one of their godmothers, page, and pulled up the pictures so Brandon could see her. He looked at the pictures, and then looked at me and said "mom, who's that?" I didn't know how to answer him at first, but I told him that it was Auntie Anna, one of their godmothers. To which, his only response was a puzzled look on his face.

The last time she came over to see the kids was for Logan's birthday in early November. She was suppose to have come over in December, but she wasn't feeling good but promised that she would come over when she got better. Now, that the double party is coming along, she isn't sure if she is going to come or not.

For some reason, I didn't get an email about the last thread before it closed.

Hi Ladies,

Thanks for the warm welcome. I have looked around the 3FC site and think this is the spot for me...I hope to become a regular!

This week has been a strange one eatingwise. Scale popped up at the beginning of the week. I felt victorious that I didn't just give up, and sure enough today it is back down to where I was. (Not that I'm so happy with that weight, but my goal is just to stay focussed.)

This weekend was the big dinner dance of the non-profit I run. We made a video, it was hard to see myself on the big screen, lots of lumps and rolls that I manage to erase from my mirror! Still...I danced and moved, and didn't get to eat much. (Not a planful thing, just too busy, but still I'm happy.) Today we count the proceeds...hopefully we met our goals.

Today is a two restaurant meal day, and then book group. Too much planned eating, but I'm trying to watch portions.

Pandora. I hope you met the goals and more! Sounds like a fun time and you know the moving was a good thing. Best of luck on eating out today. We are also eating out for dinner. I will go to their online site and plan my meal after I leave here.

Marti- I am ready to do more yardwork myself, but the weather won't co-operate. Today is sunny but COLD. Now tomorrow is going to start a warm up.

Mindee- Brandon is so cute.....love that pic.

Nothing much going on here today. We had friends stop by earlier for a chat. Now DH is working on the pergola. He is cutting everything in the workshop and hopefully won't put it up until the weather is warmer. (since I have to help) Looks like a bunch of tinkertoys to me right now. Heavy tinkertoys though.

I think I will go color my mop of hair and try to style it. Might give up on this grow out thing....too curly.

I haven't said lately. but Mom is doing fantastic. She is walking Baby every day, (and praying for warmer days) eating well and gaining weight. No nausea and the horrible leg pain is gone. Her hip is bothersome at times, but that is arthritis and responds somewhat to meds. She had her 80th BD the end of Feb. and is hoping to go to TN and FL with her sis in May/June. Edited to say: Mom has Dr. appts the first week of May with her heart and pain Drs. Then we will see if she can travel.

Okay...off to get busy.

Morning ladies!

Mindee--Good for Brandon and learning his sounds. How many hours is he in school during the day?

Pandora--Hello and welcome! Looking forward to learning more about you.

Sue--It's raining today. Perfect weekend, then the work week it rains. That's how it should ALWAYS be!! Glad to hear that your mom is doing well. I'll keep my fingers crossed that she'll be well enough to travel.

Good morning to the rest of the girls!

I need to get myself moving. Having a typical "don't wanna go to work" Monday. Must snap out of it.

I will chat w/you all later on!

Off to go start a new challenge thread. (<--see, found another reason to dawdle before work!)

Hello ladies!!!! Not much going on here we have all been fighting a tummy bug, but at least it is only pain, and not vomiting. Was hoping to make it to the gym today, but since DS stayed home from school, and DD1 came home and said her tummy hurt, I will stay in today, and go tomorrow. Unless DH gets home early Not much planned for this week, I do have to go in on Thur or Fri and register DD2 for Kindergarden for next year...they do need a current tax bill, and I don't think ours have come yet...will have to look for the old one.

Pandora~ These ladies are so supportive!

Sue~so glad to hear your mom is doing better! That is wonderful if she can go travel...I bet she will have a great time!

Mindee~Brandon is doing so well...you are a great mom to have pushed for him!! Soon you will not beable to get him to be quiet! LOL

Marti~ and stop stalling!

Have to go have lunch, see you ladies later!

Hi ladies,

Mindee - how far away does Anna live? Maybe you and your family can arrange to go and see her. Let us know how B's report card is - all of us cyber aunties want an update, lol.

Pandora - I'm happy to see you here! I recently did a lot of dancing, too. It was at my DD Katie's wedding reception. We had a blast, and I know I am too heavy to be bouncing around like that, but boy, I sure had a good time. I didn't have time to eat much, either. Hope your charity made it's goal.

Sue - thanks for the update on your mom. I hope she will get to travel with her sis. I am having 2nd thoughts about going gray, since my new stylist thinks she can color my hair w/o burning my scalp. Why are we seldom entirely happy with our hair, lol?

Marti - I'm glad the weather cooperated with you this weekend. It was cold here, but should be warmer this week. Thanks for starting the new challenge thread.

Francie - I hope you got warmed up, lol. Did you get a card from me?

Ellen - hope you and the fam are over the bug soon. DGD Makenzie threw up today, but it was from sinus drainage, poor kid. Seems like if you live in Indiana, you're gonna have sinus problems.

Neal's back is hurting again. Different place, though. I took him to the doctor this morning, and he suggested PT. So hopefully, he can begin that soon. I was supposed to go visit my sister this weekend, but I'm afraid to leave Neal, so now I can't go.

I've been trying to convince Neal to let us move to Indianapolis, or at least Evansville, but he won't consider it. I love the peace and quiet of the country, and would want to live on the fringes of a big city, not where it's too noisy. But, gee, it would be great to live somewhere with some options.

Have a good one, ladies.

just popping in here while I have a quick second!

Brandon just got up from a nap, and I believe Logan is awake as well. Marissa, is still taking a nap. She now can move her walker backwards! The night before I had a dream that she was walking, and now it looks like it is going to happen soon!

Sunday, we met up with one set of the kids' godparents. We met them for lunch and then went to WalMart. She bought Brandon and Marissa their birthday presents since they are going to be unable to attend their party. She bought them each two outfits a piece. We also looked into cupcakes for Brandon to take to school, and for their birthday cake. WalMart now does picture cakes, so we are contemplating getting them a picture cake. Plus, if you get a 1/4 sheet cake or bigger, you get a free smash cake!

Pandora~ Welcome to the group! You will love it here!!!! I love when my hubby's lodge does their dinner dances! I always have a blast when I get the chance to dance!

Sue~ What color are you going to dye your hair? I was looking at my hair last night and saw that my roots are showing again. So, I am thinking of leaving it alone for now, unless those pesky gray hairs start to show up again! that is great to hear that your mom is doing great! I will keep saying some prayers that she continues to do well!

Marti~ Thanks for the nice comments. Brandon is actually in school for two and a half hours a day. But by the time the bus picks him up in the morning and then drops him off in the afternoon he has been gone for roughly four hours!

Francie~ How did the shopping go? We did ours at the beginning of the month, but seem to come up with reasons on why we can't make/use the stuff we have. Which we need to stop doing.

Ellen~ Thanks for the nice comments. I had a reading comprehension problem when I was in school, and I am so thankful that my parents pushed to get the things that I needed, so it only seems right for me to do the same! Plus, I know that if I don't do it, then who will?

Jane~ Anna lives about a half hour to 45 minutes away from us. We have tried to go and see her not this past weekend, but the two Saturday's before. We were going to the mall near her and called to see if she wanted to meet us there so that the kids could see her and spend some time with her. The first weekend her and her boyfriend were heading to go ice fishing at 5pm. Tommy joked and said that the only thing that they were going to catch was a cold. Then the following Saturday we heading out that way again, and again called her to see if she was going to be home or if she wanted to meet out there. This time she was in Kentucky for a concert that they had gotten tickets for. So, it isn't like we are not trying to make a trip out to see her, it is the opposite. She isn't making an effort to come out and see them!

When we lived up north, she used to come and see them and us very often. She complained that we lived too far away and that we needed to move back down to the city. So we did......and now she doesn't even visit!

I will definitely update you all when he gets his report card!

Hello ladies

Got my wogging in tonight (jogging/walking) and feeling pretty good about it. Been jogging more than walking but still not up to jogging the entire time. By the end of the year maybe??

Eating was very good today. Tomorrow may be a different story.....there is construction going on in the lab (everyone is being rearranged) and due to the dust and noise, they're providing pizza. Now remember, we don't do pizza much here at home, I mainly have it when work has it, and by golly...it's been awhile! So I'm planning on one piece.

Francie--Are ya warm? Our beautiful sunshine hid today. We got a down pour and even tons of hail. Crazy I tell ya!!

Ellen--I'm sorry that everyone is fighting the bug! Hope all feel better soon.

Jane--Sorry to hear about Neal. Poor guy! Maybe PT will help strengthen his muscles so he doesn't hurt so much. Why do you want to move? Are feeling too far out in the country?

Mindee--Picture cakes are fun. For my dad's 50th my grandma had a picture cake done of him when he was a year old. He was such a cute baby! You'll have to share w/us a photo if you do one.

Hello to all the other gals!

Ok....I need to check in w/the challenge then clean up and then go read.

You all have a wonderful night and I'll catch up w/you tomorrow.

Hello all

Nothing much to say really. Had another lazy day with Fonzo. We'll be going to Seattle for the day tomorrow (well, today, lol). I'm excited and will be taking lots of pics, because it could be our last time there.

I've been craving sweets & meat non stop and I have no idea why. Its really weird, lol.

Anyhoo...I'm gonna go back to watching 50 First Dates, I love that movie. Oh ya..just wondering..does anyone watch Paradise Hotel 2???


Nighty nite!!

This is a re-post from Sunday. Not sure if Jane saw it after the thread was closed.




Hello Ladies!!

Woohoo, ladies....I went back to WW this morning after a 8 week vacation and had lost 1.4 lbs. I've only got about an hour and then going to a benefit dance, then on to dinner. We are all bringing in little munchies for the afternoon because we will be missing lunch so I made a fruit salsa with cinnamon tortilla chips. I don't know what the points are but it's about 120 cal a serving with 2 gm fat.

Jane--to answer your question..the exwife lost over 100 lbs at WW probably about 20 yrs ago. Went on to be a leader then on to adminstration with all the company benefits ie, car, travel etc. I believe she still does a few classes of the 50 lbs and over group. All my dh will say about her is when she lost the weight, she got a new body, a new job and then a new boyfriend. You get where I'm coming from. She can be a bit of a snob, wearing all designer clothing etc. But I have to say that I weigh less then her, look younger and I got the better end of the deal...my dh!!!! I still can't help being a little intimidated around her at times even though dh and I have been together 12 yrs. The sad thing is their daughter is overweight and has been all her life, and the mother has never encouraged her to lose weight. That would put the daughter in the spotlight and not mom!! My dh has always been tall and slender.

Gotta go and change out of my weigh-in clothes and get ready to dance. Have a wonderful Sunday ladies!


Tues Update--At work today and not very busy. Back OP 100% so far. Really want to lose those last 8 lbs. I'm starving right now and can't wait for my break in 1/2 hr to eat breakfast. Got grilled chicken for a salad and tons of 100 cal munchies to get me through the day. Dancing was great on Sunday and one of the DJ's that I haven't seen since my surgery came up to me and commented on how much weight I've lost. I just thanked him but didn't tell him that it was really only about 5 lbs and that the real weight loss was from getting the double chin sucked out!! Gotta go. Have a wonderful day ladies!!

Oh, almost forgot.....Welcome Pandora!!!

Morning Ladies!!!

Did not do much yesterday, DS did start to feel better, but DD1 came home from school and said that her tummy hurt. Everyone seems much better today, but I can't go to the gym this morning because they have an early day from school. I am planning on going this afternoon, Dh even said he will be home early, do DS can stay with him and do his makeup work. Will catch you ladies later!

Hello ladies,

Mindee - I sure agree with you, Anna hasn't made enough effort to see the kids. She's had chances, and hasn't made them a priority. Well, whenever she does ever show up, and they don't recognize her, it will be her own fault.

Marti - it's all about portion control, right? Too bad I personally haven't mastered that idea, lol. Why do I want to move? Well, Vincennes has no bookstore, 1 full grocery store other than Walmart, 1 movie theater, no professional theater, 1 hospital that is a joke, no health specialists, and on and on. I think the fact that we're having to drive back and forth to E'ville all the time is making me wonder why we don't just live there, lol. A big whoo hoo to you, for the clean eating and exercise!

Francie - yes, I saw 50 First Dates, and thought it was really good. Is Paradise a movie or a tv series? I haven't heard of that one. Hope you're having fun in Seattle today.

Tammy - oic about the exwife, lol. She sounds like a real snob, (read: bee-otch, lol). Like you said, you got the better end of the deal! How cool that the DJ came up and complimented you - that had to make your night! A big YAY for you losing another 1.4 pounds. If you have time, you might want to join us on the challenge thread.

Ellen - DGD Makenzie also had a tummy ache, but it was from sinus drainage. Glad your little ones are better. Did you make it to the gym?

I need to get some ironing done. Then later today, after it warms up a bit, I plan to go out and clean the back patio and patio furniture.

I ate clean yesterday, and went for a walk with Molly. I have piddled around for too long, and now summer is almost here! Time to buckle down and get healthier.

Have a good one, ladies.
