Ceejay - I have used My Fitness Pal in the past and liked it just fine, but now I use the food tracker on SparkPeople. SP also tracks with calories, not ww points. Since I don't belong to WW and wouldn't know how to calculate points or be able to look them up as easily as calories, I prefer the sites that track using calories.
My GOD this stupid computer zaps me in and out of size then when it decides to go back to full view I lose everything. I am so over this.
Tonites dinner is Cs catch on Wednesday of fresh fish. Been soaking in salt water. Going to bake it....hummmm, what to serve with it. Will surely think of something.
Today was wonderful. Spent with Sissy and lil man.....went to Costco, then lunch at Over the Border (Mexican), then Dollar Tree, and Walmart. We go so much accomplished for Cs party on Sunday and lil man's 1st birthday on the 20th. Even tho his BD is the 19th. I am more excited for lil man than C. lol. LIL man was perfec the entire day even tho he got so tired. Nanna kept him entertained as she is a complete NUT when it comes to lil man.
Can't stop for long. Have a few things to do before I take R back to millionaires row to spend her money. It was pretty much decided yesterday but have to have a run through again today to ensure the decision is final. It is interesting spending a million dollars. Well 1.3 million of them actually. Is it worth it?? Danged if I know. For me it wouldn't be because I would have a problem with not being able to get my hands dirty in the garden and not having enough to do. I like my space, although I have to admit that $1.3m buys you a bit of space. R is happy with the choices so why should I not be. I just hope it works out the way she wants.
Anyway, I am off to do some laundry, pick up a few things around the yard and the house, water the garden and bring the pots of orchids around to the back yard so they can all be watered together.
Next time I get back on here, I will be on my way to Darwin - early tomorrow morning.
WORKED A BIT YESTERDAY AND I AM GLAD IT'S SATURDAY!
I JUST WONDER WHY I SIT HERE AND THINK THINGS WILL CHANGE.
THEY NEVER DO
I HEARD FROM MY FRIEND JOHN THAT RETIRED & MOVED TO PENNSY.
HE AND WIFE ARE HAPPY AND SPENDING THE WINTER IN FLORIDA.
THEY GO DOWN IN JANUARY TO FIND A NEW HOME.
I AM SO HAPPY FOR HIM TO BE OUT OF HERE & OUT OF TOWN.
HE WAS ONE OF THE GOOD GUYS THAT GOT LIED TO.
THEN THEY SHOWED HIM HOW EXPENDABLE HE WAS IN THE END.
VERY SAD. ANYWAY...HIS STORY HAS A HAPPY ENDING.
THEN I SPENT TIME OUTSIDE WITH TENANTS FOR AN HOUR OR SO.
QUIET NIGHT. JUST ME & THE TV.
NOTHING NEW HERE FOR ME.
JUST A "ME" WEEKEND I HOPE.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE.
CEEJAY.....GEE I HOPE YOUR FRIEND MADE A WISE DECISION.
THAT REALLY IS A LONG MOVE. BUT SHE'S AN ADULT.
RIGHT NOW I JUST HOPE YOU ARE HAVING A GREAT WEEKEND AFTER

Morning all. Quick post, have to get ready to go out & about.
Mel, my sweet treat for book club will be apple bread, recipe courtesy of the Penzey's catalog. Just finished halving the recipe (yields 2 loaves, only want one) & confirming I have all the ingredients except the apples. Guava cheese rolls sound like a yummy treat - is the cheese sweet or savory? Either way, what a combo. . Yay for John achieving a retirement dream .
Shad- Safe travels!
Annie - wonderful reasons to celebrate - milestone bdays! Have fun. I've found the site here to be very hang-uppy lately in terms of pages coming up - frustrating!
Hellos to the rest of the gang!
Okay, have to dress, pick up dry cleaning, then it's breakfast w some friends. After that, buy the apples & make the bread. Later on is book club.
If anyone deserves retirement it's John. Wish him the best. Hope your week is quiet.
The treats sound yummy. I baked brownies for the first time in awhile yesterday. I was bored, hungry and exhausted.
Enjoy your week end. I like dollar tree.
My week end has been ho hum. Not ready to go back to work. I'm still exhausted with a headache. Haven't been sleeping well either. The other night I woke myself up screaming. That's unusual for me.
Don't have a whole lot to do today. Need to plan a menu and then buy groceries.

Ok, I am on my way to Darwin. Yesterday passed in a great rush and I left R signing her life away - fraid I would find that sort of debt a bit daunting even if it is only for a 5 year period. So now she has to save up hard and fast to ensure she has enough to cover the debt should the price on her current house not be up to expectations. Good for her tho'.
Miss Puss has gone around to DS2's and I have settled the house as best I can. Wish I knew someone who would come and live in it for a week or two, but there you go. I haven't.
Not much else going on here, I went to bed at 8.15 last night and slept through until the 4.30am alarm. Still feel tired. So I guess I might sleep my way to the 'top end'. Should sleep well tonight.
Good Evening ladies! Been busy this week as always, I was off last weekend for a wedding and then spent Sunday with the family. Our church had a pot luck dinner, so that was nice to socialize a bit with everyone. Monday was ok, had to work again, Tuesday was a bit busier, walked with Mom then picked up DD2 at school and went right out for cross country meet. Not much happened Wednesday, then Thursday I had a dentist appt. No cavities! yay! Dh and I also went to the White Sox game. (they lost Boo).Dh had taken Friday off and since I had started to not feel well Thursday after the game he let me sleep in. I sat with DD3 and watch some cartoons, then went to work. DS was invited to another cross country meet.today. (14.32min 2.4 MI) I had to work, so I let Dh take him and I stayed with the girls until I had to leave. Just about time to go home...to turn around and do it all over again tomorrow. Whew! Now starts Choir for DD3 so I will be driving her to school 2 days a week for practice b4 classes.
I will try to post some personaly tomorrow if it stays slow. Hope everyone is doing well. Luv and Hugs ladies!!
NOT VERY MUCH GOING ON OVER HERE.
WATCHED CARTOONS & SOME OLD MOVIES YESTERDAY.
ELEANOR PARKER AND ROBERT TAYLOR IN "VALLEY OF THE KINGS".
HOPE EVERYONE IS HAVING A GREAT WEEKEND.
GUESS YOU ARE ALREADY THERE AND IN BED.
HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME AND GOOD LUCK AGAIN
CEEJAY....HOPE YOUR HEADACHE GOES AWAY SOON. THAT'S TERRIBLE.
I HATE WAKING UP SCREAMING TOO. NIGHTMARES ARE TERRIBLE TOO!!
MAY TODAY BE A GOOD DAY OF REST FOR YOU
THINK HAPPPY THOUGHTS
LAURA.....BET THE HOUSE SMELLED TERRIFIC!!
YUM ON THE APPLE BREAD.
I KEEP FORGETTING ABOUT THE PENZY'S SITE & RECIPES.
THE GUAVA OVERPOWERED THE CHEES AND I COULDN'T EVEN TASTE IT.
THE ONES WE HAD FROM ANOTHER BAKERY WERE BETTER.
ELLEN......NOW THAT I READ YOUR POST, I NEED A NAP!!
GOD WHAT A WEEK YOU GUYS HAD.
HOPE YOU GET SOME TIME FOR YOURSELF SOON
It's that most colorful time of the year!
HAPPY 50th BIRTHDAY, CURTIS ALLEN....the love of my life!!

Hope everyone has a great time!!
Don't know how you keep things going. You exhaust me just reading about them.
Can you believe that october is upon us. From the radar we may get some rain. The cloud is following the mighty Mississippi so may it will get some of the rain. That river is the lowest I've seen in a while,, since 1980.
