I like the idea of the BINGO challenge. May start that too. I'm bad on drinking my water. Guess I'm around it all and day don't think about drinking it, just treating it.

Be back later.

Ok - I just posted a few more pictures and unless we get some drop dead gorgeous fall color pictures tomorrow - I promise I'm done

Ceejay - glad you like the Bingo idea. I got a BIG laugh about you thinking about treating water more than drinking it - that's putting your all into your job.

Sent a note to Jen last night, but as yet no reply. I'm hoping that things are okay and they are all wrapped up with moving Mel to the hospice or something.
I may have a couple more to add then I will be done since I have hogged the drop box continuously for days.

Good Morning/Evening Everyone...

Sassy decided to spend the night at Sissy's house last night so we were furry free last night. I got home a little early and decided to cut the much needed grass as it was hard for Roo to go poo. Fixed baked pork chops and sauted zucchini, yellow squash, carrots, onions and baby portabella mushrooms..added a bit of garlic, oregano, pepper, was very tasty.

I looked up what gas stations were in and around where MELLIE/JEN live. Shell seems to be the only one my area has in common with them. I put a Shell gas card in the mail to Jen to help out that way. I just don't know what else to do.

I am way over this govt shutdown. I also know they said that the US Mail would not be affected, however our neighborhood has not received any mail in two days. Which is a bunch of bunk as I am looking for a package from Kohls with two new bras in it. Could care less about the bills and other stuff. lol.

HAPPY...the garden is still intact. I usually leave it until the temps dip below 40 at night. So far we are at 45-48 at night. I am going to bring in a haul tonight and may just wrap it up over the weekend. How is Nina doing? DH?

CEEG...Sissy is still doing great. She has her next check up on the 17th and we may be able to tell the gender at that time on the ultrasound. You are doing quite well with your exercising also, good on you.

CHELLE...is that enough pictures that I sent you. I can always find more if necessary. I dropped an envelope in the mail yesterday to you for the frame.

SHADDIE...I hope all is going well with MELLIE and JEN. Jen is probably too busy too worry about emails. I am guessing you found your way to work. bleh

LAURA...I know what you mean about people getting let go, whatever the reason, it is just a tough world out there and way too much saddness. You are doing terrific with your exercising and will be at goal in no time.

Better get busy, waiting to hear from my boss in LV, I am requesting an hour of PTO this afternoon.

Loves and hugs

I was thinking on the same line as you about sending a card for things for Jen. Think I'll get a Walmart card this week end and mail it. She can use it for whatever. And some have gas stations. I'm with you on this gov shut down. But it seems we've had them in the past. But the President usually steps in and does his job.

Laura
It's really sad that people get fired from their jobs. How was the movie?

Happy
Is Nina doing better?

Shad
I'm glad you are putting a lot of pictures in the frame. Did you find you way to work?!!

Michelle
Are you going to rest this week end?

----------------
I've found that if I balance weekly it's not as hard when the end of the month comes. I do double/triple check things. There hasn't been any communication between operators for comparison in balancing. Last week L made some changes that were incorrect and now I'm wondering just how many of these incidents have occurred in the past. I'm not leaving anything to chance. She's still sneaky. This is where my "CYA" notebook comes in handy.
More later.

Morning kids,

Short post for me - we have a few items on the to do list today and hopefully tonight will meet some new friends at the movies to see Gravity. It's been breezy the last 24 hours - the leaves are falling off the trees now Nothing like a "look" of autumn when colored leaves are swirling on the streets. Things will be bare soon and you'll be able to see through the trees at things you forgot were there. That's why I'm glad I live in a pine forest - we will always have privacy among the neighbors

For those asking - (and thank you for that) Nina seems to be doing very, very well. She is back to her usual frenetic energy into everything and anything. Lately she is going neurotic chasing the random flies and ladybugs that are all but impossible to keep out of the house. I think we finally got the right combo to keep her as healthy as she can be and happy. Thanks for prayers answered. DH is doing ok - the rash on his legs only seems to appear when it's warm out AND he's doing a lot of standing with yard work. He said his legs were fine and he spent quite a bit of time outside raking pine needles the last few days. He got the all clear on his heart - everything is in good working order so hopefully we can both stay healthy. I just wish I could figure out this kink in my back as I am annoyed at the neck and hip pain. Maybe I will check out a chiropractor although I'm not a fan of that regiment for me in particular.

Annie - a CYA notebook is something in which you keep notes on what's going on in case one day you get blindsided and pulled into the office and accused of something that you need to defend yourself on. I had a steno book filled with details my last year on the job. Sad but a necessary thing in the new corporate America. Good for you for thinking ahead Ceejay. Good idea with the gas card for Jen. Glad to hear that Sissy is doing well in her pregnancy.

I'm go over the circus that passes for our government. The only time our vote means anything at all is to vote every single person in office OUT next election. Voting them in they obviously don't have any regard in supporting their constituents so maybe voting them out will send a message too. The end of the world comes closer... tick ... tick... tick.

Shad - thanks for sending a note to Jen - I am hoping that not hearing anything means that things are status quo, she is stable and Jen is just busy running back and forth taking care of her.

Gotta run - hello to the rest of the chicks, will catch up later.

HAPPY...you should really try rolling on an exercise ball. Lying on your back on it and rolling back and forth. I do it close to the sofa in case I need to catch myself or steady myself. Curtis is really good on it and has no problems balancing. I guess it is his strong, musclie legs from all the walking, stooping, and getting in and out of the box truck. Tightous I say!

Morning all.

This week I lost the 0.2 pounds gain I showed at last week's WW meeting. Next week is the last week of this session. Since 6/25, the beginning of this session, I've lost a grand total (net) of 1 pound. Really??!! How lame. I need to make this week count and show a "real" loss next Tuesday!! Plus I have a follow-up appt next Wed. with my doc re my bp (no issues, just the usual), so it would be nice to show some more weight loss when I step on their scale.

I'm signing up for the next wwaw session since I'm still not at goal and need the help and structure. We may have a smaller group next time, and we may have a substitute for a good portion of the next session unless we change our meeting day. Many of us would welcome a new meeting day, including me! This next session will take us through the holidays and right up to my cruise in Feb. - a good thing.

Walked doggy after work since bf was off at the gym. Just out of curiosity, I started the timer on my cell phone and this walk turned out to be 22 min 51 seconds. That's about right for a "normal length" walk. On really nice days or when we go by the creek, it's longer.

The movie "Don Jon" was very entertaining. However, this is a movie about what I'll call a "pornaholic" and there was a lot in the movie about his "habit" - more than I needed to see. Also be warned that the characters are what I imagine the "Jersey Shore" people are like (I never watched the reality show), the guys have foul mouths and like to go out clubbing and get laid. But the story is pretty good, I really liked the direction it took. I really like that Joseph Gordon Leavitt - he also wrote and directed this movie. I think he's very talented. I still remember the cute kid he played in the sitcom Third Rock from the Sun with John Lithgow.

I dug through a couple boxes of photos last night/this morning to find an envelope my mom had sent me with some of my childhood photos. As part of a fundraising kickoff event at work, we were asked to submit a photo of ourselves from age 5-18. I think mine might be 2nd grade. I took a photo of it on my cell phone just in case it doesn't get returned as promised, so I'll try to get it on dropbox, just for kicks. It was the only one I considered submitting. The other pics I have feature horrible hair and/or giant coke bottle eyeglass lenses!

---
Annie - CYA is cover your a$$, so I get the idea of what Ceejay has in her notebook. I guess that's why I keep my desk files so long - some of that can be considered CYA material. Same for the e-mails I archive. Love the photos you posted on dropbox! I suppose I should try to post some more. I do have some nice scenery shots from my 2011 vacation in the Pacific Northwest... Gosh, hope you get your mail - only the good stuff, not the bills and junk mail. Good idea to send the gas card - who couldn't use that?? Yeh, my veg garden is still producing, so I'll leave it up a bit longer and enjoy the last of the tomatoes.

Ceejay - Good of you to be keeping a CYA folder for yourself. I'd hate to have anybody change the type of data you have to record - particularly if they are sneaky and incorrect in doing so!!

Shad - Hope we hear from Jen! Your flower photos are just stunning.

Happy - Love that tiny frog photo!! Definitely try the cottage cheese and tomato thing - yum. Give it some zing, maybe with italian dressing/herbs, or some balsamic vinegar. I'd stopped buying cottage cheese because it has so much sodium, but I'd heard in ww about adding tomatoes & balsamic and had to give it a go. I also like it sweet, with some mandarin orange segments. That applesauce sounds tasty - like the citrus zest addition, and a teeny clove flavor too on top of the usual cinn./brown sugar. I've heard only good things about Gravity, so I hope you enjoy it! Re the bone loss - my grandmother had it and so does my mom. Mom takes one of the pills for it - fosamax? I hope to avoid that as much as possible with calcium supplements and exercise. Time for you to get another bone density test and see what the doc says??

Michelle - So when do we get to see some of your pics?? Glad to hear you're feeling better. I hope you find a good doctor that you like. So important!

Okay, back to biz now. Happy Hump Day to all.

Hi everyone -

After work, I stopped at the post office to get the dimensions of the various Priority Mail boxes to ensure that the digital frame would fit in one of them (it does), otherwise, I'd have to find a UPS place. Then by the time I got to the gym, picked up Santa, made myself something for dinner...I was exhausted. So I didn't get to work on the frame. I know we're all anxious to get the frame in Mel's hands. And originally my plan is to move all the photos on it tonight and send it off tomorrow after work, so it would arrive by Monday (or Tuesday at the latest). But now I'm thinking it makes sense to get more photos uploaded, and I'll drop it off at the Post Office on Saturday morning, and it would get there by Wednesday. Let me know if the mailing Saturday, arriving Wednesday is ok with y'all.

I've got an appointment with a new doc on Friday morning. I want to review my issues with her and find out her recommendations for improving my health so that I can move from having my issues be well controlled with meds...to non-existent and/or under control without meds. I decided on this doctor because she comes highly recommended and she's a Stanford doctor. For those not familiar with Stanford Hospital/University, it's an outstanding hospital/medical system and is always on the leading edge of treatments. I'm finally completely willing to do whatever it takes to reverse my diabetes and get my health back.

Sorry I can't do personals today. I've got a ton of things to get done before my meeting at 11...and no doubt a ton of things after the meeting too. But I'm not complaining...being busy is a good thing.

Much love to all,

Just wanted to add one thing...if you go into dropbox and notice that the names of your photos have changed, I did that. I did that for two reasons...1) I'm hoping that the name of the photo can appear as a caption when it displays on the frame...not sure if it can though; and 2) I thought it would be nicer for all of each person's photos to appear together (for example, all of Annie's, then all of Happy's; etc.) That way, Mel is less likely to be confused. So I added the person's name to the beginning of the photo file name. I hope you all don't mind.

Thanks Michelle. I actually did a slideshow of the dropbox last night. This may have been before you did the captions. Nothing showed up as far as captions were concerned. I'll do it again tonight and check. It was fun to see Annies big brown eyes and Happy's blue ones and see Ceejay cuddled up to her nephew. What a cougar! Laura I had forgotten that you and Patty met up - good to see that photo. I should have one with me, Hollyhock and Madcat somewhere. Must see if I can dig that out tonight. Lucky I brought my back up drive with me.

Second to last day on the job. I can't really tell how this is going to work out. My gut instinct is that they need further handholding, but........ that costs so I doubt that they will get it. Going home day tomorrow.

Anyway, time to go do some work. I'll be back later when my day is done.

Shad - I'm hoping that I can configure something on the digital frame to display the file names on the photos. I just finished adding the person's name to the beginning of the file names. And I added some photos of my own - the ones I have on FB, but I'll put more on this evening from my computer.

The more pictures the better...that goes for EVERYONE! So far, we've got roughly 200 photos. I'd love to get a lot more if possible.

gotta get back to it.

Good Morning Everyone...

Half day today and off tomorrow to spend the day with BFF from St. Louis. I am looking forward to that. THis afternoon I am taking Miss Sass a cakes to the vet for her yearly shots etc. Cannot believe she was a year old in July. She is unaware of this appt. lol.

I may make it back later to do personals. I do want to shout out to CHELLE with a HUGE thank you for getting this all together. Be sure to save all the pix on a stick/flash drive or something. I would like to have it also. I already have the digital frame that Sam got me for Christmas a couple of years ago.

Loves and hugs,

Hello. I'm not new to 3fat chicks but I am new to this thread. It seems like you all do a great job supporting one another!

I'm looking for a thread that is very active and "fits" me. I have found all of your posts very positive to read.

How do you feel about someone new joining? Also, can you tell me a little bit about the thread. It seems like you start a new one monthly? Where did the name come from?

I will check back. Have a great day everyone.
