"I feel like I am back in kindergarten in many ways... personal, sometimes at work and now with the weight loss. I have done so many things wrong over the years.....emotional eating, pills for weight loss, eating the wrong things, failed diets, etc.
Now it's time to start fresh, kinda like back in kindergarten......"

Good morning, ladies!

Okay Susan...with the link you sent me that is what came up...hoe did you get the picture.graphic full size? Ugh, what do I know, lol...I tried.

SUSAN...you're a sweetie! And thank you for the Dora graphic, too cute! I've not heard of that book but sounds inspirational. I am hoping to get some inspiration from the Biggest Loser Books I just got. Not sure if I mentioned it but I had ordered them a while ago an just received them last week...the cookbook, calorie counter book, can't remember what else but there are two others. I NEED to get back on track. And was thinking about that on my walk this morning. When I lost this last little bit of weight my focus was on getting and being healthy and the weight was coming off. Somewhere along the way it turned into "I have to lose!" and gues what...I'm not! But I hear ya about going away alone...thinking that's what I need. And a beach trip? I am jealous lady!

FRANCIE...glad you and Fonzo are enjoying being back together! The comment made me want cupcakes too! I remembered talking about them not too long ago That movie is coming on again tonight, yay! I am making a note so I don't forget to watch it and must cook dinner early, lol. I tried the link to the game but it didn't come up. Of course I thought it might not...we've been having problems with this stupid computer...hubby is thinking about calling the computer geeks to come out. Waaahhh! I want Fealess 14! Now don't be a spoiler when you read it, lol.

SUE...fingers crosse for the new car And WTG on the biking and walking. I'm thinking about going for a bike ride later...not taken it out for a while. Have fun at the casino if you go.

MINDEE...glad Brandon is okay and sounds like you guys had fun at the pool!

WILDTHING...WTG on the walking!

Hello to JULES, KATY, SASSY, TAMMY, CLARA and anyone reading this...feel free to join us!

As much as I didn't want to get up early this morning I did. Happy to say I actually have all my walking done, feels good too! Now I can concentrate on laundry and straightening the house...like I wan to Finished my book and getting ready to start another. Disappointed with just having read 4 books this month, ugh!

What's everyone's plan for 4th of July? Anything special going on?

Well, I better get going. Want to get something done today. I'll be back later.

Have a good day, all!

Hi All!! You have been busy little posters. Nothing much new here.

Teri really likes Patrick (who is a REALLY) nice guy, but is still in love with Dave (who fails everytime she gives him another chance) Why is it sometimes it seems we have to go for the bad guy who is gonna screw up when the great guy is there ready to treat us the way we should be treated??

Ry LOVES Washington, he has found his little niche. He's having fun on Sunday nights signing at a karaoke (sp?) bar, he was going to sing Tom Petty last night. Today he is going kayaking on the bay with some people from work. He is seriously thinking of going to cooking school. The display of the food gives taps into his creative side and he loves people and actually enjoys cooking.

Jerry & I are on vacation this week. Don't get too excited we aren't going anywhere. He's cutting wood and I'm painting and getting stuff ready to take to Goodwill and paperbacks to a local book sale, all the things we can't do when baby is here. Fun..huh...

Well back to work before hubby acts like I am not....I told him if he keeps being grumbly that I will go to work this week and take my vacation next week without him!!

Good morning all!!

Cristina~Don't forget to watch the movie!! It's really good!!! I wanna read the book now. I read My Sister's Keeper and just loved it. Of course, I cried the entire time I read it too, lol. I haven't started Fearless Fourteen yet. I think I might start today or tomorrow. It sounds pretty good.

Jules~Thats sounds like a nice vacation to me. Except..I'd be buying the books and not selling them, lol. I'm glad Ry likes WA, because I do not. LoL!! It's too hot and miserable here right now.


Anyways..I went to bed kinda late (3:30am) and I woke up too early (8am). Fonzo kept moving around too much. Probably not used to sleeping on a comfy bed, lol. Then all 3 cats slept in the room with us. Which was a first. Only 2 of them slept with me while he was gone. I'm starting to feel unloved by my Sassy. She slept on his side, cuddled with him..then stepped over me to get off the bed, little traitor. And she was the one that never liked him, lol.

Anyways..I'm gonna have some breakfast and watch Army Wives. Hope you all have a nice day!!

PS--Dominic will be 6 months old on the 4th--so hard to believe, I really need to post more pics, he has 5 teeth and has mastered rolling and what Teri calls the bunny hop top move himself where he wants to go.

Francie--sounds like little Sassy was missing Fonzo too!! Ry says that it's been hot in WA but the humidity is what he hates about the east coast. Something you will have to get used too--some days it's so high you actually can feel the moisture in the air. Most apartment complexes here have central air to combat it. Hubby wabts to retire to AZ to not have the rhe humidity. The crowd Ry has gotten into like the outdoors--hiking & kayaking. They also like to drink which all are his favorite things.

Cristina--I am still trying to get through "Girls Like Us" it's a 500 pager, like I mentioned before, it's interesting but I really don't like her style of way too much extra info. The lives of the three, Carole King, Joni Mitchell & Carly SImon do all end up intertwining. I am 2/3rds of the way through and I am going to make myself finish it this week, then I want something light, fun & a fast read. I just don't have the time any more to read like I used too, between baby and work being busy, switched allergy meds and the Zyrtec makes me sleepy!!

Well, my walls are all washed and ready for painting, just have to spackle some nail holes. Hubby is picking on me for jamming out to the 70"s on XM radio on Direct TV--I told him it's the decade I'm in in the book I am reading making me do it!! . I have to run to Lowes now....hoping everyone is having have a great day...

Jules- My kind of music also...oldies. Any oldies. OMGosh your grandbaby is growing up fast. Time flies, doesn't it? I am so glad Ry is settling in and happy. DH always wanted one of our kids to go to culinary school. Now my DGS is cooking for a restaurant and loving it, talking of going to school. He won't though...he hated school.

Cristina- You are doing great on your walking AND reading. I have only read two books this month and can't get started on another...just ready to do something else I guess. What that is, I don't know. Like you and Susan I am ready to get away! Doubt that happens since Mom needs me.

Francie- Did you get to go to Homecoming, or did Fonzo just pop up at home? Either way I am sure you were glad to be with each other. Ahhh..young love. J/K with you.... I bet he loved the cookies too.

Susan- I am so glad my teen-age child raising years are over. With the two girls it was way too hormonal in the house. Then with "baby boy" I had lots of help until he was an angst ridden teen, then the girls were grown and gone. And DH worked nights, so DS and I were the ones clashing. We were/are pretty close, for those reasons though...in spite of the hard times.

Mindee- Good for you swimming laps. I hear that is one of the best exercises and with little stress on your joints. Maybe Tommy would watch the kids and give you some time to go do that more often. My DS is trying to get healthy and I told him to go to the pool at their apt. He did and loves it..although he got burned the second time out there and had to lay off for a few days. (He hadn't gotten my public service announcement about sunscreen...BUT he has gotten it now!)

Katy- The other book I read was You:Your Body, by Drs. Oz and Rozien. It was very informative also. Hope you are enjoying your Mon.

Sassy- Where are you chicky? Hope you are rested!

Marti- How is WW going? I wish I had the will power to do that or South Beach. Ugh...I am such a loser...and not in a good way!

Wild- Wow...good job on the walking. I have found I walk more and longer if I have company walking with me. I used to walk with a neighbor (before we moved) and sometimes we would get talking and lose track of the time.

Waiting for the car dealer to call and let us know if they found the car we are looking for. I drove an HHR, but the colors they had left were not to my liking. I am just not a black or white car person. I told DH I wish the car companies would take my advice on colors...they are so blah anymore. If they find a good color we can do business.


I rode a mile this morning, but the wind killed me, so I hope to ride later. Don't know about walking yet...will see. I am doing a huge pile of laundry, changing beds, cleaning bathrooms...you all know the drill. The life of a Susie Homemaker. LOL
DD and DGS will be here Fri. from Cali for a week and I want everything done so I can just chill and hug/bug the DGS.

Okay..off to put on a pot of green beans to cook.

Hope you are all having a lovely Monday.

Jules~I didn't think about the humidity. Ugh, my hair is gonna fizz like none other, lol. It used to frizz here too, but not so much anymore, I dunno why. Az is a great place to retire to..but there is that dry heat problem they have there, lol. You can handle it if you have central air and not a swamp cooler. Oh..watch out for monsoon season. The storms are horrible!!

Sue~Fonzo just showed up, lol. He knocked on the door while I was eating ice cream..I thought it was my annoying neighbors coming to tell me to turn the tv down lower (I had the sliding door open). But nope..it was my Fonzo And yes..we are young and in love, lol. Proud of it too Although..he'll be hitting his mid 20s next year..and I'll be 24. Scary. We're almost 30. Even more scary..LOL!!!

You are not almost 30 Francie!! lol. You are still closer to 20 silly young woman in love. You make me nervous because at 44 I am not almost 50, I am still close to 39....*wah.

My anxiety level went up when I read that. lol

wow, chatty bunch!! I don't know about the picture Cristina, I like it small, it looks good! Good for you for starting a new thread

I will just do a ramble because I feel overwhelmed with all the poasting. lol - that is probably why I post a lot and keep up that way. I know, what a basket case I am.

Great to see you Jules!!! I am glad Ry loves Washington, it is beautiful up north. And little Dominic is growing up way too fast! 6 months, wasn't he just born?? Enjoy the time off, just puttering around the house is nice. I have done it for a year now. lol.

Hi to Sue, Mindee (so glad B is ok), wildthing (you can call me susan!!) and Katy and Tammy....and ya, everyone.

oh Francie - glad Fonzo made it back safe!!

Sue - What kind of car are you thinking about getting?? The teen years are a killer. I think w/ Rach though she has ADD or something. We were touching up her hair last night and she jumps from one thing to another.....she wants a nose ring, piano lessons, kickboxing..on and on.....I just really want to eat when she does that. Seriously.....I just can't take how intense she is.....

Cristina - You are welcome for the Dora, ain't she cute?? Doesn't Dora live in Hawaii??

sorry, time is up! bbl when I have more time. I have to get some errands done and pay my rent so I can budget this month. Stayed up til 1am and watched Bridezilla, it was kind of funny.

anyway - you all have a good day!

just popping in while the kids are all in their proper corners.....j/k! Marissa and Logan are in their rooms, and Brandon is sleeping on the couch.

the boys already wanted to go swimming this morning! I had to tell them that it rained and it wasn't warm enough for them to go into the pool.

Francie~ You are not anywhere near 30! I am closer to 30 then you are. I will hit 26 in August.

SuzieQ~ How are you doing? How is Gabster doing in school?

Sue~ That is an option of having him watch the kids here at the apartment, but I am not seeing it since they have to go with me if I am just grabbing something out of the van! But it is nice to take them to the pool as well, since it tires them out as well.

hello to every one else...I am trying to get some things done before the kids wake up.

Back again!

SUSAN...OMG! Bridezilla is so funny but annoying sometimes to me. I don't care if you are the bride some of those women are just nasty and it's uncalled for. Of course too, I know probably some of it is scripted, I think. Anyway...no idea where Dora is from...I don't know anything about Dora period except she's cute and Cambrie loves her, lol.

Did anyone catch the Baby Borrowers last week? I thought that was funny, but a little annoying. Those girls wanting to have a baby and then spent one day with one and didn't want any part of it, some of them. And all the crying, geez...what would they do for real? Now I don't normally watch reality t.v. with the exception of a few shows Bridezilla, Super Nanny, Miami Ink, & Wife Swap, and I guess HGTV, okay, so I guess I do watch reality t.v., lol. Just can't stomach most of them.

FRANCIE...I made a note, lol. I was wanting to read that book, My Sister's Keeper...almost bought it but passed it up at the grocery store and haven't seen it since. May have to go to the bookstore or Amazon. Glad to know it is good because it is on my to read book list. Fonzo sounds like Josh when he came home before we moved. I knew it was supposed to be the weekend before Thanksgiving and was waiting and waiting on his call and thought they changed the date once again. Was cleaning house on that Sat. and someone was laying on the doorbell pi$$ing me off. I said out loud...this better be good and not someone trying to sell something, The turd...it was good, lol. Almost 30, lol...silly girl! I would love to see 30 again, well, maybe not.

SUE...hoping they find the color you want. I'm not a black or white car person either. Enjoy your 4th and the week after with DD & the DGD's...bet you can't wait! Your green beans sound delicious!

JULES...there you are...thought we were going to have to come and hunt you down. So what color are you painting and what room are you painting? Try not to work too hard on your vacation week. Glad Ry is liking WA...that would be great him going to cooking school. Well, maybe Teri will wake up sooner rather than later and realize Dave isn't going to change. I LOVE the 70's!!! I was having a hard time with Under The Banner of Heaven...it was a decent book but for some reason I could not get into reading it and didn't think I would ever finish it.

Well, my washer just went off and I don't want to listen to the thing beep, beep, beeping...very annoying. Can you tell I am a little agitated today, lol. I got up too early...not that it was too early, just felt like I didn't get enough sleep. Not really in the mood to go over to Char's later either but I will. I have some things we are giving her & Josh...thinking I will just take the wedding presents too...ha! never gave them to her...was waiting for Josh to come home and who knows when that will happen. Just glad to have gotten my exercise done and out of the way early otherwise I would be suffering right now. I think I need a nap.

Have a GREAT day everyone!

P.S. HIYA MINDEE...you snuck in there while I was posting! Hope ya get the things done before the kiddos wake up.

SO do we post in this one now? Why did the number change? Anyhwho it works for me. Today I got up and walked my 5 miles. It was pretty easy. I was so sleepy today though. I ended up taking a nap that was a hour and a half. More than planned but I do feel better. I had eggs and grits for breakfast. For lunch I am eating chicken vegetable and barley soup. It so good. And really healthy with all the fiber. Continuing on.....

Shopaholic- that is really funny about your cat. Our dogs are like that sometimes too. I am really glad to hear about your man being home. That is just wonderful.

Jules- that baby is beautiful. This has no relevance but I saw a lady at the track I walk at who had a little boy. She had the most beautiful calves. They were big like mine but they were in really good shape. I am gonna have those.

Sue- good job on your mile riding. I used to ride alot. I should pick it back up. I love walking more and I was in the morning. The afternoons are really hot. I usually work during the daylight part of the evening. I might pick it up on the nights I am not at work. What color are you looking for with your car?

Susan- my poor mother just nodded here head when I got like that. I am a huge talker and bless her heart she tried to listen.

FrouFrou- at least you got your exersicing done!!! Usually on days like that if I dont get it done first thing it doesnt get done. Thats something I got to work on.

It was really good hearing from you ladies but I will have to go to work tonight and my boyfriend just got back in town after being gone for 3 weeks and we havnt really hung out. We might tonight so I dont know if I will get back on. If not I will talk to yall tomorrow!!! Oh and my name is Asia.

I loved the Baby Borrowers. I can't wait to see how they handle the next couple of stages. I don't understand why they are making them take care of teens and elderly people since they are just trying to scare them out of having kids. but all in all, it was a good show that I enjoyed.

Tommy is making ribs for dinner......

back for a sec,,,,,,,exhausting but I am getting some things done, so I feel good about that!

Cristina - One little girl is from Hawaii, I was just curious because ......for no reason. lol
I have watched the 1st season of Brides and the lady from Japan made me so mad. She wouldn't let her husband kiss her and every time he tried to help w/ her dress she glared at him. I almost cried when she refused to get on the his scooter and ride off into the sunset w/ him. lol. anyway - onward to season 2! I have never watched Baby Borrowers. As for plans for the 4th I don't know.....Gab is going w/ her father Friday and I hope Rach has plans to DO something - lol. I will just work in the yard if the weather isn't too hot, go visit my mom and step dad or something.

Asia - Nice to have a name! We just change the thread # when we get at or just over 100 post.
I made some chicken soup for lunch figure the calories at 40 for the broth (low sodium, low fat) 100 for the veggies and I put in 1/2 an onion and 3 chicken tenderloins. It turned out really good , I think the whole pot is around 300 /350 calories.
Have fun w/ the boyfriend!

Mindee- mmm, ribs. I am ok, I checked in for medical for Gaby today. I have to go back tomorrow. Gab is tired at the end of the day. Otherwise she is a trooper. She is doing the library reading thing and earned her 1st prize of a free bowling session.

Jules -Missed hearing from you. Was D really a 4th of July baby?? My grandmother always said my uncle was born St Patricks day but that wasn't true, she was just really Irish, lol....... he was a Patrick though. And my other uncle was born (so we are told) on the 4th of July. So, is Dominic close to walking?? I think all my girls were close to or at 12 months of age. You'll be hopping ...

Sassy and Katy - where are you ladies?

anyway - going to clean the place and just relax this afternoon and fill out applications I picked up.

chat later...

omg- I forgot all about The Bacherolette tonight!! And here I thought I had to do job applications. yay...and Rach is over spending the night and her friends and Gaby is exhausted from school so we hope she will just go right to bed at 7pm (ya right). So, it will be me, my bag of carrots and the bacherolette.

ok, that is a tad sad......lol

Oh, if you are using corners for the kids you can have 1 more Mindee!!
