Good morning all

I could not sleep last night,,,toss and turned,,,too hot/too cold. Finally just got up and went and read for a bit. Ate my cheerios,,,ahhh missed my cheerios.

The food was very bland, and I don't think she had a clue what was a common breakfast / lunch / dinner item. Like for instance for breakfast one morning I ate fish and pancakes...no syrup. Another morning I saw Tanner eating french fries. But one night we all dressed up and went out for a wonderful dinner...right on the beach.
well off to work I go
Angie

Good Morning ladies--

Do you usually wish people a Happy Labor Day? James called me this morning and said Happy Labor Day and then we both thought.....hmmmm....do you do that? So I thought I would ask.

Jana--Oh come on over and "refresh" my hair too will ya? It's starting to look bright with gray again. I'm kind of wondering if the gray looks more obvious than before I colored it!! I'm sorry to hear about the Uncle. I still talk to my ex IL's. In fact the day Shanna come over, my ex MIL stopped in front of the house as I was checking my mail and talked to me for a minute. She was very happy for me when I made my choice to leave back then.

Angie--Cuba sounded wonderful. Every thing you did I want to do! I can't wait to see some photos of your trip. I can just picture you lounging on the beach, drinking.....what did you drink Cappaccino's???? In my mind it's a margarita! I'm so glad that you got to go and enjoy it. Although I'm like Jana...you did a lot and I almost felt tired reading it too! About your pup...James would love to have one of those doggie "resorts" around here that you took him to. That would be perfect. They need more places like that for people who have animals.

Mindee--Sure hope that you get a very romantic day today.

Julie--I missed your post yesterday....sorry about that. You sure have a lot on your agenda! Not much time for relaxing it seems. Hope you get some time to relax.

Not sure what I'm doing today. I want to stop by my grandpa's today.....not sure when though. He may be working on the house he's been building. It's more of a cabin. He'll be leaving for 6wks. to Iowa later this month. He'll be back after his birthday (he'll be 85) and the family plans to get together then and celebrate his birthday. We all plan on getting together for a potluck soon after to start decorating his house for the holidays. My grandma always had it all decorated. Want to keep the tradition going. Otherwise there wouldn't be anything......I don't think my grandpa would know what to do besides put the house lights up.

Ok.....time for me to go clean up.

I'll check in later.

Hi again ladies--

Well I thought I would stop in and say that I'm heading up to Portland to go see James. He's been lounging all week (worked only 2days) and I was taking to him and we decided that the dogs and I are heading up!

So I'll check in when I get back.



EDIT: Ok...change of plans...I can't go, I have an appointment tomorrow. Darn.....my timing is bad! Next time maybe.

Good Morning-

Happy to have you back safe and sound Angie! Cute about Skittles.

I just have a second. I will PM you Katy!

I am working on a cover letter for a Housing & Community Specialist, it cloeses tomorrow, it is for Section 8. Kind of like a manager but without the complex or the residents.....lol. Lot of paper and phone work involved. Good pay and being able to live off site appeals to me Plus, still with HAP
So I will give it a go.....

Girls are spoiled!! I had to leave them early yesterday.....all they seem to want is my wallet. So, Gaby and I came home after church yesterday and chattered and talked about her potty training problems.....lol

She is a doll - I need to get all the girls in for a picture taking. Becky got her ears pierced, she was happy about that.

I range between 142 and 145, it seems. I would like to be 135 again but feel my body likes where it is all........lol., so I guess I am maintaining for now.

better go!!

might get back on later......

ttfn

hello ladies....

nope I didn't get my romantic day today. Our friend Anna came over and we were looking at some wedding websites, and then our buddy Joe, one of Brandon's godfathers, who is an EMT, called to see what we are doing. We said nothing and he told us to come up to the track for some brats and hot dogs. We went up there and watched some races, now we are waiting for Joe to come over here and then we are all going to go over to his apartment. Tommy is going to make dinner over there and then help him set up his surround sound.

hopefully I will get my romantic day sometime soon!

Well, it's WI day and I'm kind of between 1 and 2 down, but it's hard to tell with my cheapo scale, so I'm going to be conservative and say one pound down. Core went well, but I definitely maxed out all the flex and activity points. We'll see how this week goes. I've just about lost the "vacation" pounds...or the "lost weekend" pounds? I don't know, but I hope I don't ever have to see them again

Susan- My DD is developing some potty know-how, and in the nick of time...she start preschool in a couple of weeks. She's driving me a little nuts. Get this, she's great - 100% compliance - when she's running around the house naked or no-pants. As soon as she gets a pullup or training pants or big girls pants, she pees them out. And she doesn't really care if she feels the wetness against her skin. Can't take her anywhere...... Thanks for the PM- I'll try to call soon.

Marti - too bad about the trip to Portland...maybe next time, then we can meet up aomewhere

Jana - sorry about the loss in your family....it's great that you've remained close to your exes family - that's so great for your kids

Angie - welcome home - glad you missed Frances

Well, I've heard from my cousin ( in FL) and they once again were spared the worst of the latest hurricane, but everything around them is in chaos. Their house is concrete block construction and they didn't lose their roof with Charley, so Frances didn't pound them as hard as she did other people. She reminded me that the best thing we can do to help Floridians is to donate money to the Red Cross - some are calling this the worst natural disaster in US history. And it may not be over yet as Hurricane Ivan is another big storm out in the Atlantic that could come their way. Marti - I hope your family has come out of this ok

Hi to everyone else - hope you are enjoying your Labor Day

Katy

Default Happy Sunday Girls

Hey everyone!!

Well I weighed in today, stayed the same, so at least I didnt gain anything!!! I wanted to see if anyone else has tried the FIRM exercise series????
I've been doing it the last two weeks and it's very intense, but I am seeing results, they have some aerobics called calorie killers and I am sooo addicted to doing them!!! Anyway I just ordered their step , it's called the fanny lifter, it has a small step and a large one and you connect and disconnect them to get different effects....It cost me 50.00 for the fanny lifter step piece and 3 videos..so I'm really excited I'm already addicted to the 2 tapes I have now, so I cant wait to try these out!! It incorporates handweights, cardio, and step aerobics in each video and they really are fun...so If anyones interested in trying some thing new out, go for it!!!
Anyway on the home front, did my yard work, then went to moms and did her yard work....then I worked out to a video for 30 minutes and then went to the store with my friend so she could return something.... Just got in now about 6pm, and I'm off to make dinner!!!
Hope everyone had a nice holiday weekend...and I'll catch ya later!!!

Julie

Hiya ladies,

Angie - hope you'll feel better and be able to sleep once you get back on schedule.

Marti - actually, my ex mil was so much kinder to me than Fern ever was. Not to speak ill of the dead, but Fern only accepted me when she had some medical problems and I was the only one there for her - about 3 years before she had symptoms of Alzheimer's. My ex mil loved and accepted me from the get-go. So sorry the trip to Portland fell through!

Susan - I'll be soooo glad when I get to say that I'm maintaining! Good luck on getting the section 8 job - I think you would be good at it!

Mindee - well, hey, if you can't have a whole romantic day, how about a romantic night? You could get the baby asleep, light some candles, put on some "mood" music and take it from there....

Katy - Yay for the 1 (or more!) pound down!! Glad your cuz is okay. My friend Barb called and said so far so good in Jacksonville.

Julie - I've never done the Firm - it would probabaly kill me, lol. But I've read around the boards where a lot of women love it. You are doing so great with all the exercise!

Hi to the others.

Made it through the funeral viewing ok... at least my hair had no grey roots, lol. It was really good to see everyone, even under the circumstances. But have to admit I'm glad it's over!

TTFN,

Evening ladies--

Well today I did more of nothing....enough to drive me crazy. Sure am looking forward to having work to go to. It would be different if I had family around who could do nothing with me. Just wait....in a month or so I will be back here saying "Oh how I wish I had nothing to do!"

Susan--I would love to see the kind of work you do. Your newsletters and stuff. Sounds interesting to me. I hope you get the job your asking for. I'll keep my fingers crossed!

Mindee--I hope your DH gets a chance to make it up to you tonight.

Julie--I haven't tried the FIRM video's but have been wanting to. I think my sister has some. She also has some Tae Bo videos I would like to try out! Great job on not gaining during TOM. I was pretty pleased when I WI and had the same experience.

Katy--
I tried calling my sister again. No answer. Left who knows how many messages. My parents haven't heard anything either....which is very unusual since my sister calls them once or twice a day. We're assuming no power. And pray that their house is still intact!

Jana--James' mother really liked me. It's too bad that she passed away before we had gotten married. When he was w/his ex....he went over to her house one day and she just knew something was wrong. And asked him if there was another girl in his life. (we hadn't even been together yet) and without getting an answer...knew he was in love with someone else. I knew his father...but he didn't know me. He was ill...and had passed away a year after we got together. My parents love James. But it has always been my grandparents whose approval I always looked for.....and they absolutely adore him. Treat him as though he has always been a part of the family. And I'm so glad that my grandma had really gotten to know and love him before she passed away.

Hello Cristi, Angie, Shanna, Katie, Sue, Barb and everyone else I may have missed.

Ok ladies....I just wanted to check in and see how you all were doing! You all take care, and I will check in later in the morning.

Good Morning ladies--

Just a quick post this morning. I'm off to go get a TB shot.....then I have some errands to run. Then I will be going to visit my grandpa and my aunt & cousin who will be there today.

Not much else to do after that.

Hope you're all having a good morning!

Hi Ladies~

Just a quickie here to say Hi. Don't mean to be rude but really don't feel like posting. These stinking allergies hit me hard yesterday and I just want to sleep. Which is bascially what I have done yesterday and today. If it doesn't get better in a couple of days I am going to the DR to see if I can get a shot or something. Waiting for this Claritin to kick in. Was taking something else which was working so, so then stepped outdoors yesterday and that was all it took. Then went out this morning and I swear I am staying in for a couple of days. Anyway, I will post more in a day or so when I am feeling a little better.

Hope all is well with everyone.

Oh Cristi- DH gets hay fever really bad - I feel so bad for him when he gets it, so I can just imagine what you are going through ((((((big hug))))) I get a hay fever reaction when the pollen is really high and I always hate it because I hate the symptoms, but I also hate the drugs, so I'm a mess no matter what!

Marti - sounds like a nice laid-back day. I worked in the yard for an hour this morning, and hung 3 loads of laundry on the line. My shoulder is hurting, so now I have to stop. My PT will not be so happy with me if I keep overdoing it.

Susan - Good luck on the job app...still plan on calling you, maybe tonight - with school starting tomorrow, we are in a busy transition 'round our house - how's yours holding up? I feel like a bad mother - can't wait to ship this kid off, lol! He's so wound up and excited, he's getting real difficult. Oh well, 2nd grade will keep him so busy he won't be able to see straight!

So I got on the scale and I did lose the extra pound, so I am going to count it for this week - just 'cause. It makes my sig look so pretty, lol. A nice even number. The vacation pounds are officially off! yahoo

Core still going ok. Sometimes it's hard to figure out what a No Count food is. I eat a TB of soy nut butter on my oatmeal. Well, on dottie's someone wrote in a thread that soy beans are No count but soy nuts are not. According to the label on my Soy nut butter, it is made from soy beans. So I go back and forth about whether to count it or not. It's all kind of silly, really. I have so little spare time and this is what I choose to use my brain cells on.....However, This plan seems to be working for me for now, so I will give it the ol' college try!
Hi to everyone else - hope you are all having a good day
Katy

Default hey girls

Hey all!!! Had a stressing day at work today, I had to learn a tough new job at work, so my brain is pretty shot!!!!! Anyway, I did get in my walking on lunch, and then I had clinical for a few hours tonight!!!! Just had a new lean cuisine meal with a salad for supper, It was chicken florentine, carb cutter...It actually tasted pretty good, I bought some this week, cause they were 2 for 3.00....Anyway, hope you all had a good day, Im tired, so making this short tonight!!!

MARTI : I have tae bo tapes too, but those are even tougher than the firm, I used to do it faithfully though, and it really helped get rid of inches!!!

JANA: Thanks for the support, the firm is really fast paced!! But thats the only way I can keep going!! I am on a kick with the exercise though, I think it's cause Im really seeing results!!

KATY: YAHOO!! ON the 1lb lost, as along as you feel better, go with it!!

Hi ladies,

Just popping in with a quick hello. I've been busy sewing some Disney patches on t-shirts today and doing piddly things. I'm off to Penney's in a little while to return a shirt and see what they have in for Fall.

Katy - yay for getting all the vacation pounds off!

Hi to the others.

See ya manana,
