Yes, it's me, Thinthinker. I do still exist!!
I cannot believe I still have a deep cough and one of those noses that runs off your face!
But I will survive. I'm finally convinced of it.
I've spent the last hour and a half reading all of the posts I missed. Can't believe I didn't even appear for all of #139! Geeze o weeze!!!
I had to really work my tail off this week to catch up on jobs that should have been spaced out over the last 10 days, but because I was soooo sick there for a bit, didn't get done. The real trouble with that is with every job comes PAPERWORK!!!
I am feeling better, but still have a busy weekend ahead of me, all the reports from the jobs I did today and then we have a wedding to attend tomorrow night.
It was 65 degrees here today.....just beautiful.....until late in the afternoon when the wind really whipped up and it started to sprinkle. It's supposed to get up into the 60's again tomorrow and then by 4:00 drop into the 30's. Should be a fun day to try and figure out what to wear, eh?
Mary: Good job getting the family to agree to a vegetarian meal once a week. What did you try on them? * If you don't say anything, I'll bet you can get away with the 'crumbles' in stuff without any problem. What they don't know won't hurt 'em!! * I loved your picture. Aren't you and DH a great looking couple!!!
2cute: I hope you had a great day with your granddaughters. That should take a little of the stress away and make you remember how joyful life can be. * I'm so sorry for what you're going through with your folks. It's so awful to fall apart and have the mind to know what's happening. At least with my dad, the mind went before his body did. Not really sure which is better, both are very sad situations. [[[HUGS]]] * I'm like you with the 'challenge' thing. I hate to be a failure. And I too once loved a good challenge and would always be able to step up to the plate. Where is that 'old' us??? I long for her too the older I get.
Jen: Good to see you back. I bet you really miss the DH. I know we're a poor substitute, but we are here for you! [[[hugs]]] * Great job ditching the lemon squares and the garbage disposal is the best place....no chance for second thoughts!!!
Malia: I read today where if you're super hungry after you work out you could be iron deficient. Just a thought.
LuckyLadyBug: My WW leader keeps stressing to have some
protein at every meal because you will stay satisfied longer. And she also stresses not
to skip breakfast because it gets the metabolism moving. She always starts the day with a little peanut butter on toast, or a slice of cheese on a pita or Eggbeaters....anything so she has a little protein.
Katrina: I bet the dance classes are alot of fun. DH and I really enjoyed them when we took them some years ago. The jitterbug, however, was not my strong suit. Just could never get the feet to move in the right direction. But how I
to waltz!!! * Have fun at the B & B. Did you get some silly string????
Tina: Another pound and a half!! That's awsome!! You are doing such a GREAT job!!! * I love the pictures. You and DH look great together. And you have both dropped some pounds! Good for you!
Susie: Sorry that job stress is still holding you captive! I'm sure as the days go on and you get more settled some of that will ease up. Just keep remember the raise in pay was worth it! *giggles*
Baylee: SEVEN pounds for February is GREAT!!! Keep up the good work!
Babette: Thanks for dropping by. You can 'lurk' anytime, but we love it when folks drop in a say something!!!
Joe anne: Thanks for the lovely picture of your mom awhile back. I hope you will consider re-joining us on a regular basis.
Syn: The pumpkin brownie recipe looks great. I'm do that up for next week.
I hope I have gotten caught up with everyone. If I have missed someone, please forgive me, but it is 3 am. and I've about had it for the night.
You all take care. Know that I think of you all often, even when I'm not here for awhile. I really do love you guys!
