Hi gang . . . So sorry I've been on the missing list.

Yesterday, I discovered my water heater had decided to start leaking. Try not to have semi-major disasters in a small town on a holiday weekend . . . Wow - hope I find my plumber tomorrow (guess he's been out of town for the Victoria Day weekend - although the weather has been a total disaster, too); and hope he can fit my water heater into the morning or at least give me a definite time (because I have a previously scheduled appointment at 1:00). The water heater problem has managed to soak the broadloom in the hall downstairs (about a three-foot section) and the kittens seem to find the smell of the wet rug 'fascinating' (KWIM). Oh well, one more odour won't make that much difference, I guess -- will give it a really good cleaning once the problem is resolved. Other than that . . . the feline menagerie is doing great.

Today, one of my ex-employees (pre-my-retirement) was at work (even though it is a holiday) and was whining for help, so that kept me rather busy . . . at least it took my mind off the plumbing problems.

Did manage to get some sewing done -- and that provided me with a wonderful NSV, of sorts. I cut out a couple of outfits using some old patterns that I've made before (a few years ago). They are the kind where you get four sizes on the same tissue . . . last time I cut the largest size . . . this time I cut the smallest. What a thrill -- finally something really tangible to remind me that I have lost over 50 pounds (even though I'm not exactly dropping by much so far this year).

Actually . . . 2007 has been kind of a in a lot of ways so far - and May especially - hopefully things will improve soon . . . I'm getting tired of this stuff.

Hi DONNA . . . Glad you are having sopme nice weather. Don't you worry, that mysterious 1/2 pound will soon get lost for good.

Hi HY . . . Hope your fur-baby is feeling better. I really don't like it too hot either (I know, fussy, fussy). Well, actually since I can't remember ever experiencing a dry heat (when it's hot here, it's also terribly humid), I don;t know for sure how I'd feel about your climate.

Hi FEMME . . . to our group and congratulations on that nice loss so far. You are so right . . . it is hard to love the scale- most of the time.

Have a good moving and shaking evening everybody . . . see you soon.

Hi ladies...Just a quick pop-in for tonight. We have nasty weather coming in and I don't want to be on the computer, plus Dancing with the stars will be on.

Femme...Welcome and way to go on your weight loss! 18 pounds is AWESOME!!!

Donna...I'm taking a small cooler with me. Right now I plan on taking a container of cut up watermelon/pineapple, maybe a salad, cut up veggies, fruit in yogurt and a couple packages of instant oatmeal. I'm hoping the water in the restroom is drinkable. Also taking my water bottle and a package of lemon drink mix. I have a new book to read, cd's to listen too, counted cross stitch, plus I plan on listening to the weightloss cd as well. I haven't had time to listen to on a daily basis, and I need to slow down and take some time for me. Donna, I don't know if my granddaughter is going to graduate or not, I will know on Wednesday. She has been goofing off all year, skipping class and not taking it seriouly, now she is busting her butt, and it might be too late. Kids!!!

Hy...How is your little dog doing? Ozzy knows that something is up, and is stuck to me like glue. He will probably drive Jim nut with his whinning for the next 3 weeks.

Linda...Gosh! Sorry to hear your waterheater is on the blitz!!! This has not been your month for appliances, and they don't make them to last like they did eons ago. I cooked lunch yesterday and turned the burner off, only the button said it was off, but the light was still on and the burner was hot. Took Jim about 20 minutes to get it to turn off. Guess that is the next thing to go around here.

Well girls, I colored my hair tonight and it didn't turn out the color it said on the box. It was a very light brown with grey and now it's black. It doesn't look bad and I guess it will grow on me. At least it will be gone in a couple of months.

Have a great night.

Cheryl

Hi gang . . . . . . Wow, where have we all been hiding lately? It is way too quiet in here . . . and I know I'm just as guilty as any body else.

Just a quick little hello to everybody. Don't know where the day has gotten to. At least nothing else has broken down today (at least not that I've discovered yet ) and the water heater has been replaced.

Went to the optometrist and ordered new glasses today . . .yippee . . . soon I should be able to see properly again. Of course, I'll also be broker.

Another yippee . . . Finally got weighed after my 4 week abstinence and got to move my ticker 3.2 pounds further east. Not much for almost a month, but lots better than watching it go up and down every week . . . happens to all of us from time to time, I know. Will try for another 4 weeks of no peaking.

Have a great evening, gang . . . keep things moving and shaking and I'll see you again really soon . . .

I'm running behind on everything, including reporting for duty here! LOL!!


I've managed to gain a couple pounds back....hmmmmmm......well, better to know now and not pretend I didn't seeing it coming


Went to the local 'health food' grocery store this morning and got all my foods for the upcoming long weekend. My little dog is improving under the care of a vet specialist. What a HUGE relief - she is not very old. So I hope things can quiet down here for a few days. Once can always hope, right?


I also got a couple books and hope to read and relax this weekend!!


Cheryl I didn't reply to your request for snack suggestions for your train trip, but what the rest of the group mentioned sounded like great suggestions. I am a big nut NUT, so those are always good to have on hand for snacking, imo. (If you can eat nuts - I know some people can't!) Once you decide what you're going to take, please let us know as I'm interested in case I get to take a little day trip in the car somewhere.


Hugs to all

Hi Everyone...Hope you all are getting ready to have a very nice and safe Memorial Weekend. Jim and I were going to take our boat out and see how it runs. We got it back from the repair shop a couple of months ago, but it is suppose to be cold, windy and rainy for us. Sounds like typical Memorial weather we are going to have.

I have been busy the last couple of days finishing a quilt, putting a tag on the quilt I'm giving to my sister-in-law and starting a new quilt so I have some hand work to work on while on the train. The new quilt is a pieced buterfly block,and I will embroider the antenna's on them.

Went to Weight Watchers yesterday and I gained 2 pounds. Water retention, because I was down 2 pounds this morning. I'm getting excited for Sunday to get here. Jim and I are going to spend the night in Fargo since I have to catch the train at 3:10 AM, Don't want to take the chance of hitting a deer on our way down.

I'm taking a couple containers of Dole Fruit Parfaits, canadian bacon, a couple hard boiled eggs, toss salad and my salad dressing, and I'm going to buy 2 chicken breast from KFC and also a container of cut up cantalope/watermelon. That should keep me content and on program.

Hy...I absolutely NUTS...but they don't like me, they plug me up, and they are just like potato chips, I just can't have one!!!

I'll try to check in with you all tomorrow.

Cheryl

Hope everyone has a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend. Looking forward to some time off with no great plans.

CHERYL: Sounds like you are well prepared for your trip. That's awfully early to get on the train !!! Hope you have a safe journey and a great visit. Sorry to hear that your GD might not graduate, hopefully she got it together and will. I will probably have that worry with my GS in 4 years, unless he changes a lot. We will be anxious to hear all about your trip when you get back.

HY: Glad to hear that your little dog is doing better. Where did those 2 lbs come from ??? darn things they sure can sneak up on us. Sounds like you are all ready for the weekend with your healthy foods and good books.
Have a great one!!

MEOWEE: It has been quiet here this last week and I too am guilty of not showing up. I do stop by every day and read but don't always have anything to add to the conversation.Congratulations on being able to move your ticker. 3.2 lbs is a great loss, be proud of yourself. Glad also that you haven't had anymore gremlins in your house, why do all your appliances seem to go at once? Mine did the same thing a few years back.

We are getting ready to have a new heat pump put in, my husband just informed me that instead of replacing our air conditioner we will just add more to the insurance check and get a heat pump.Supposedly they are more efficient on electricity, sure hope so. Don't have any great plans for the long weekend. Would like to go fishing but our weather is supposed to be rainy too, which is normal for this weekend. We will have to do some rearranging and cleaning in our basement for this new heat pump but that shouldn't take us too long. Hoping for a chance to meet our youngest daughter and her fiance and our grandson for lunch either Sat. or Sun.
I'd better get busy my dryer just buzzed me, have a fun weekend and be careful with those cookouts.

Hi gang . . .

Not one of my better days . . . I've had a hemorrhage in my left eye (doesn't really hurt, but sure looks awful) and I've got a sore throat and a very sore right shoulder. Oh yes, I got the bill for the installation of the new water heater . . . Can$650 . . . Oh, and a further bunch of fun . . . somebody (think it is Frickle) has decided to pee on the couch in the family room two mornings in a row now. So, I bought some cheap vinyl upholstery fabric to make a simple throw for it until they outgrow this little nastiness -- I know they are still babies and most of the time they do very well, but . . . yuck.

Took them to the Vet yesterday for their second round of shots . . . they are all nice and healthy, with no signs of any parasites or genetic problems and they are growing like weeds, although Frackle is lagging a bit behind. She weighed in at 2.5 pounds whereas Frickle and Freckle are 3.1 pounds each. Vet says not to worry, she'll probably catch up again.

Not much else going on around here . . . have to admit that I've not been eating too well since my WWI -- or actually, I guess it's more along the lines of I'm eating too well . . . no junk, just too much. Not much in the exercise department either -- unless you count scrubbing the couch every morning.

Anyway I hope you all have a great Memorial Day Weekend and that you hve much better weather than we had for Victoria Day. Keep things moving and shaking, Chickies . . . see you all soon . . .

Yes I hope everyone has a great weekend and some decent weather.


I went out to B'fast this morning - the first time in YEARS, I'm not kidding. It was OK but I guess I haven't been missing much - lol. At a nice place and all tho.


Hope to get some pool time this weekend - the water is warm enough (we don't heat), but I'll have to be careful about the time of day as the pool isn't shaded very well. I have a special fabric water shirt I wear that the blocks the sun, so that helps a lot. Whatever, I'm going to enjoy a couple swims and not worry about nothin'


Hugs to all And a special double hug to Meowee - I know those kinds of days, weeks, months, like you mention! Hope things get straightened up right away!!

Just a quick pop-in to say bye and hugs to all my friends. We are leaving in an hour and I think I have everything packed. My little dog Ozzy knows that something is up and I hope he does OK while I'm gone. Also think I have my hubby squared away, and I have plenty of food in the house for him.

The rain and cold weather has finally left. Woke up to the sun shining, nice and warm out. Well I will see you gals on June 15th. Kept moving the scales downward, I know I'm going to work really hard to come back with a loss and not a gain.

Hugs to you all,

Cheryl

Hi there . . .

Sorry I've been missing the past couple of days, but I've had an incredibly awful migraine. I'm sure it's the stress of my appliance-gremlin filled May and all that has entailed (along with the kitten-related things, of course). Our weather has taken another turn for rainy and cooler again too.

Sorry I missed your departure, Cheryl . . . hope you have a really great trip.

Enjoy the pool, Hy . . . and the warm weather.

Hope everybody is having a great Memorial Day. . . keep things moving and shaking, gang . . . see you soon . . .

Hi gang . . .

Where are you all hiding? I know Cheryl is away, but where are the rest of you? Wherever you are, I hope you are having a bunch of fun keeping things moving and shaking.

See you later . . .

I don't believe it, I had my post all done and went to look it over and my computer blipped and it was gone !!! Why or why does it do that.?

Ok we'll try this again. I hope this finds all of you having a good week. I didn't think I would ever say this, but, "I'M SICK OF RAIN!!!!!" It rained a little every day of our long weekend. Then about 3:30 Tuesday morning it just poured and then it misted on and off most of the day then about 5:30
yesterday evening it just opened up and really rained for a good 5 hours.
Our rain guage showed 4" this morning and they are calling for more today.
Good thing I took my hanging baskets of flowers to the garage last night or they would have blown away plus drowned. We have towns just south of us that have anywhere from 8-15 inches of rain in the last 24 hours. One county has closed all of their county roads as they have either washed out or bridges have washed away. Lots of low land flooding now.We did get a chance to take our boat out fishing for a while on Sunday afternoon, it was cold and windy and had to wear hooded sweatshirts, YUK, but we caught enough fish for a couple of meals and we had fun, no phones or tv, just the quiet sounds of nature, love it.

MEOWEE: Hope your migraine headache has gone away and the appliance gremlins are gone for good, I mean what else could they attack ? What is up with that naughty kitty, deciding to pee on your couch, was she feeling neglectedjust kidding.They are fun but can be so naughty sometimes

HY: Did you get a chance to go for a swim in that pool. That sounds so relaxing, there is just something about the water. I don't swim, but I do like the water for relaxation.

Hope Cheryl gets a chance to check up on us while she is gone. Know she will have a wonderful trip.

My Avon lady just brought my order and some new wish books so am going to take a minute to check them out before I go to lunch. You gals have a good day and a good rest of this week. I'll peek back before the weekend.

Hi again . . .

Our weather is still not the greatest -- about 16C/61F is the forecast high for the day and there is a frost warning for tonight -- I will definitely be glad to see the backside of May for a lot of reasons. Hopefully June will be better.

Wow, DONNA . . . We've had a lot of rain (and cold) this month, but nothing like you are going through -- hope it clears up soon.

Well gang . . . keep things moving and shaking . . . see you later . . .
