Good morning ladies,

I can only type a short note because I had an accident on Saturday afternoon trying to open up the bottom of an electric toothbrush with a table knife which had a serated edge. You guessed correctly, the knife slipped and landed on my left hand right below my index finger. It was necessary to go to Urgent Care for stitches. This also cancelled out all my bowling for probably two to three weeks. My hand is still swollen and hurts if I try and do anything with it. I go back tomorrow to see the doctor. I am hoping by Thursday I will be able to do my job. As I am typing this note, it aches quite a bit. I didn't, however, keep me from doing the treadmill. I just hopes the swelling goes down because I am sure it will quit hurting so much!

Take care, ladies,
Anita

Hello Ladies,
Had a great day today, got in two walks today & i'm planning on walking the dog tonight. Not sure what' i'm having for dinner though.. Need to look at my points.

Nita - So sorry to hear about your accident. I'm sure that is very painful. Wishing you a speedy recover so you can get back to bowling. WTG for getting on the treadmill though.

Hope everyone is having a great day...

Hi Chicks~~ Using the computer at my MIL's so i can post a quick note to you all. Things are going good, but i am very busy. Plus our brakes decided to really get bad 3 days from when we have to leave for Denver. Good thing his mom has 2 cars! So we can borrow one while our truck is in the Ford shop for new brakes or whatever they can do for them! And fast!!

We purchased a new utility trailer today for towing our big Harley motorcycle home. They didn't have the ramp to drive it up onto the trailer so we have to wait at least one more day for that too! BUT we did go to the DMV and get our plates and all that stuff straightened away.

what we are doing now for those who asked is living in a permanent spot. It's like a travel trailer, but with 'bump outs' in two spots, so it's kinda like a very old park model trailer. On the title it says 'manufactured home' but not like the kind i think of when i think manuf.home. It's only wider in those two spots where the walls push out. It makes it alot roomier than what we had tho.
It's still not on land we own,(we don't want to buy down here in the valley---maybe Payson area tho! We miss our trees and they have trees) so we pay some 'rent' to park it there, tho it would be kinda hard to just up and move those kind of trailers They do have a pool and spa and shuffleboard at this park.

~~NITA~~ get well soon! sorry to hear of your accident. I have that kind of luck too. Take care, and keep walking on that treadmill YGG


I don't know if i've lost a pound yet, but you'd think i would the way i've been running myself ragged. One day i went on very little food and because i was so busy i did not even get hungry.


Hi to all the rest. Must go now. I miss being able to get online via the antenna at the last park. I have this Wireless capability with my new laptop, but now i don't know just when it will be useful to me again! That is life i guess.



Take care chicks~~ thinlizzie

Hello Ladies,

Just got back from my lunch walk. Getting ready to eat my lunch. A few ladies & I have been walking the downtown area. There so many things that I did not know where here, so we're taking the time to look at things at the same time getting our walking in.

Need some food ideas? I have been eating yellow squash & zucinnie (sp), but have been cooking them in the forman grill. Does anyone have any lowfat cooking ideas on how else to cook them?

Thin - Where are you going to in Denver? Is this just a short trip? Now I remember you telling me about this trailer. When do you all head for home?
Wish you all could take a trip here to Texas, but I know that is a little to far.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Hi Everyone,

I hope everyone is having a "great" day! My hand is taking longer to heal than I anticipated. I have already missed four days of bowling. A couple of the stitches have come out so I have decided to take the other two out as well instead of going back to Urgent Care. Most of the pain is gone but it still looks rather gross! Whatever you ladies do, don't make the mistake I did and try to open something with any kind of knife!

I have been trying to stay on my program but am finding it hard because I can't really do anything around the house like I would like to do. Perhaps we all need a little down time to just give ourselves a much-needed rest. I do, however, plan on going to the office tomorrow. Luckily computers are so much easier to use than the old typewriters where you had to really pound hard to make them go.

Take care everyone, and it sure is wonderful to have so many friends on the internet!

Anita

Default RE: Just Between Us...!


Happy HumpDay Everyone!

Well... I have 'most' of my university work turned in. What a relief. I have one project to finish up. I was ALL ready to take an incomplete grade and take the next month to finish, and my professors decides he can take work until this Friday. I'm not sure I'll have time to get it finished, but it is a thought. Only 4 weeks of teaching left, but on my gosh what a schedule. IF you only knew. So many last minute, got to have it now requests for assistance and help to set up programs. It is nice to be respected and ask for assistance, but hard on my ablility to 'get it all finished'.

Dieting is going very, as in very well. I honestly feel better now that I am back really watching my food intake. I am still doing the low carb diet - consuming whole grains foods, and a few fruits and more veggies. I think it is the healthiest way to eat - and plan to keep the weight off. I don't know if I mention it or not, but both teachers in my builiding that lost 60 and 70 pounds respectively in the last year have regained all of their weight back. One teacher gained more back. Low carb is easy to lose, and easier to gain back if you change your eating plan. One thing to think about.

CAT: How is your foot? I know pain is an awful thing to have to live with. I had a student get a third degree steam burn in a cooking lab last week. Lifting the lid from steaming brocolli (yes, high school students steaming brocolli in a steaming basket!!!!) the steam caught her, and she panicked and flipped the lid and the water hit her little finger - and wah-la. Her hand is wrapped up for 9 days. She says it is itching, and peeling.

THIN: Always good to hear from you. I purchased a red pepper tonight. I am demonstrating rolling out pizza dough tomorrow (we made the yeast dough today) and I am putting healthy items on my demo pizza. More and more of the students are getting brave and trying my healhty demo foods. Neat! Red pepper will always remind me of you and your fabulous cooking!

MOOZ: Ahhh.... computer problems. When they arrive there is just no getting around them, huh? I am very happy with my upgrade on my home computer. I spent just over $200 for everything - I added a memory card, windows XP, a CD writer and a cable modem. When he installed the XP he reformatted the entire system - and oh not to forget an update on my virus protection. I've had this computer about 5 years and I bought a mid range one back then, which is a puppy size (speed and size) now. It is fine for me as I mostly use it for university work and writing to you!

NITA: Have you gotten any further on the book? Don't ask me why, I am really interested in this book????? I know I should just buy it and let you alone! May your hand continue to heal, and you be bowling very soon. I use to bowl every Saturday morning on a league... it was FUN.

OneDay: George Foreman grills rule. I am on my second one. I actually wore one out! I love to grill any type of fish. I usually squeeze fresh lime or lemon over the fish as I take it off. Veggie burgers are even good on the GForeman grill. I've grilled summer sausage, bacon (cut the strips in half since I have a small one). You could grill portabella mushrooms with a nice marinaade on them - yum! Grill the portabellas, then stuff them with a cream cheese, gorganzalla cheese, onion and spice mixture - bake for 15 minutes at 350. Very good stuff.

OK... I am off to iron my clothes for tomorrow and hit the hay! Happy Hump day everyone... good to hear from everyone!!!!

Just a quick check in. The powers that be at work decided we all need to work an hour of OT each day for the rest of the month. Now as a security guard I often worked far more OT than that, but nevertheless feeling sorry for self anyway. This is such a busy week . . .

The podiatrist gave me a cortisone shot, and we also discussed what to do if it doesn't work. But today my foot does feel better.

Nita--sorry about your hand. I did the same thing once--slicing cheese--and cut it in such a way that they could not stitch it, so I had to spend hours in the ER while trying to get it to clot. The nurse ordered me to stick to sliced cheese from now on
:-).

Mooz--what kind of computer are you thinking about?

Sorry--too tired to say hi to everyone, and I must get to bed & get up early, both to work the extra hour and to leave a little early to be at our Concert of the Arts for Peace--hopefully even have dinner first.

Oh--I got such a nice note from the priest who was my college chaplain--back in the early pleistocene when I was an undergraduate. (Another old friend put us in touch). I was pleased that he remembered me and DH, and also to hear that he is doing well, tho thinking of retirement. (Odd, of course, because in my imagination he is still 25!)

Best to all--

Catlover

Hi Chicks~~ I'm spending my last night in AZ at my MIL's. We are packed up and ready to roll in the morning. But the weather in Colorado does not sound so good as last May. It was gorgeous and near 80 last year when we got there, now they are still calling for snow!
Say a prayer that we have safe travels thru those mountains.
We can stay up to 1 week at our condo once we get there, but if weather won't cooperate, we may spend more time south of there and just get less time at the condo. Hope it all works out.

The eating is sounding good there HALGAL~~ YGG. Keep up the good work. I am dearly going to miss the deals on those red bell peppers, but at least a few times during the summer they are 'on sale' by us. ONLY $1.49 a # ! What deals. MIL just got 4 of them for a buck at the ranch market today.

~~NITA~~ you take care to soak that hand and hold off a little longer on your bowling ok? You can catch up later on once healed.

~~CAT~~ hope the OT at work goes by fast.

~~1DAY~~ sounds like you are doing great on the foods, and adding diff. exercises to your plan too! YGG~~ Keep it up.

~~MOOZ~~ hope your computer gets fixed or you can get a new one soon.

Miss ya'll........talk ASAP --at the most it will be about 1 1/2 weeks now till i am home.. Know i will be thinking of you all.

HUGs thinlizzie

Hi Ladies,

Well I weighed in at WW and I am 1/2 lb. away from my two-pound limit. I am hoping to get there by next week. The weight has sure come off very slowly this time--7-1/2 lbs. in 10 weeks. My hand didn't do well at work yesterday and I probably shouldn't have worked so hard. I really miss bowling but I know I will be bowling as soon as my hand allows me. I went to the Chiro again this morning and I sure do feel great afterwards. My back and left arm are almost as good as new. I probably need only one more visit.

Thin Liz -- Wishing you a safe trip back home. Again, it was so great to meet you in person. Perhaps next year we can visit a little longer!

I hope everyone is having a "super" Friday. HalGal, before I forget, I love your graphics you post, they are very refreshing and make me feel great!

Take care,
Anita

Just a quick message to let you know I just got a virus on my other computer and it seemed to happen after I opened Dr. Phil's weekly schedule. I still can't type too long because my hand is still not in good form. I believe had I not gone to work on Thursday it would be way better today.

Hope you are all having a "super" weekend!

Take care,
Anita

Default RE: Derby Day in Kentucky...


Hello Everyone...

Today was Derby Day, a very big day in the state of Kentucky. Most folks have parties and private Derby drawings for winner picks of the race. The local pubs and bars do a hefty business with the large screen televisions as folks watch the races - and now bet online. This computer age certainly has made things convenient for us.

I ran errands and took a nap! I've just been exhausted. I got to school yesterday morning at 7:15A, and left the building at 8:45P. Thursday and Monday were similar hours. It is grueling, by weeks end I am not ready to even think about doing anything. I think I told you, my principal ask me to organize a review session for the sophomores of our school - which will take place this Monday and Tuesday. I worked on it after school every day last week, and still have a few hours of keying in rotation charts to give to each student first thing Monday and Tuesday morning. Let's not forget the last, yes LAST, of the required 3 hour after school meetings this Monday. Anyway... If you ever hear anyone say how teachers have it made, because they are finished at 3P and have the summer off... flashback to this!

I ate fast food today. The worst thing in the world, but I was in the mood. I honestly do not like fast food, but today it was fast and that is why I did it. Do you know I was so busy I forgot to eat my lunch and even left it at school - remembering it as I walked in the door here at 9P last night! It was one of those Arby's Martha's Vineyard salads! I'll be in tomorrow and hope it will still be good - I hate to waste money like that.

Speaking of wasting money - NO, I did not bet on the Derby this year. I did a pretend bet, and my horses did not win - so I felt like I won when the race was over! That is really reaching, I know.

You know I had two dreams in the last two weeks about POW's being tortured? I am not upset with this war - altho I do not agree with much of the politics involved. I've always heard of folks having preminision dreams and I had one (actually two!). When the news came on today with the reports of POW torture I about flipped. You just have to wonder about what the connection is - how did I know? Anyway...

Time to work a little and watch Nashville Star. Anyone here watch it?

More later.... Peace...
