It's a bit hot today; 97 last time I looked.

We are still heading to ME. We leave here on June 27 and will be in ME on July 2 and 3. I was looking up some info about Greeneville, ME and I found a listing for Angie's bakery. Great!! I now have the address and phone number so I can definitely look her up. (You hear that, Angie? Prepare for company!!) Ashley will start swimming lessons one week after we get back. We are putting a pool for her right after the yard is done. She should have about a week or two to play in it before we leave. She's been a little bored, but she spent the night with her best friend last night and her cousin asked her to spend to night tonight. I was going to take the 2 of them to the pool today, but Madi, Ashley's friend, called and asked if they could go to Peter Piper Pizza; that's where they are now. I found out too late that she could've gone to volleyball camp this week. There is a basketball camp that she wants to go to, but I don't know the dates yet.

A friend of mine is going to take the dog for the next 4 days while our yard is getting done. She has a pooch also and the 2 dogs seem to get along. We took our dogs to the dog park last night and they played with each other. I really like the dog park and will have to take Tucker more often.

Have a great Friday everyone and stay cool and dry.

Cal

Default Hey LAdies

Okay, as of yesterday evening, my cable started working again, YAY!! So now my life is almost complete. Now all I need is for sunday to get here so that I can enjoy an entire day with my boyfriend. He works non-stop all day and night. I can't stand it. But Sunday he's off and he'a all mine I may actually hurt him!


Anyways- Noelle, I know that HD can be annoying sometimes but I can assure you that if you ever came to my store it would be a pleasurable experience. I'd make sure of that. Sounds like a great episode of trading spouses. I hate that I missed it. BTW I realize I know very very little of the Hawian culture but I'll try and learn. Happy holiday to you. PArty hard.

J- The B-day party sounds as though it's gonna be something special even though you'll probably be exhausted afterward. It's a good exhaustion though. I'd rather be at your party than at work which is where I'll be. It's all good though. Have Fun, Girlie!!

Kempy- Hope you're doing alright in this weather. I know huricane season can be a real pain. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you though.

CAl- Sounds like a really cool trip coming up for you. I'm still trying to figure out where I want to take my vacation. Anways, have a blast! I know it's still a wasys from now but the anticipation is the best part.

Hi Angie- I miss you, we all do.

Cherie- What a bummer. I hope the weather gets nicer and you feel better soon. You poor dear


Well I'm going to bed now. Long day at work tomorrow. TTYL girls.

Default I Love My Scale

I woke up this morning and weighed myself. The scale said 139.5! I haven't seen the 130's in forever. I'm finally moving forward! YAY.

Hi again girls

Dips congrats to you on moving foward. You must feel great. I hope you and your boyfriend had fun yesterday.

Cherie miss you. Hope you made it home safe and sound.

Angie miss you too.

Kempy how was your weekend?? Are you making it out okay in the heat??

Noelle I hope you enjoyed your holiday weekend. Did you guys do anything special?? I hope you had a good one!!

Cal how is the landscaping going?? I hope smoothly.

Well I am just starting out here for the day. It is cloudy and humid. My fingers are swollen all ready. We had a good time at the party this weekend. We had pizza, cake and ice cream and different kinds of salads at mom's new house. It was a lot of fun. Yesterday was a swimming day so we all went and did that. My back got a little burnt. So tomorrow is dd's birthday. So more cake, it is hard having my kids birthday's two weeks apart. A total of three cakes!! It would only be two if we would not have had a combined party, oh well I think I deserve a small slice. I admit I had a smore last night too. Well at least I got two really good walks in this last weekend. Okay enough about me, how is everyone else doing on this Monday?? Have a great day.

Hey guys. I am listening to the Michael Jackson verdit while I am typing this. I am such a sucker for this kind of stuff.

Arlene didn't even give us a drop of rain. In fact, it was beautiful all weekend here. I ened up having to water the yard yesterday and I think I will have to get the sprinklers going again today.

Cal you are going to have a blast in ME. Make sure you tell Angie that we miss here and give her a big hug from all of us.

PMS is such a pain. I have been craving anything I can get in my mouth and it showed on the scale this morning. The 4 lbs gone are right back but I am going to keep my fingers crossed that it leaves once I start. I am really tired too. Thank you so much mother nature.

Not much has been going on with work. I still need to get some new clients. The lady that owns the shop is telling me that I need to get more clienst so that I cma get on room rental. NO CRAP LADY!! Does she think that I enjoy sitting there all day with nothing to do? I am running in to the problem of if I run any typw of ad for myself I am promoting the salon too and I don't think she would help with the money part of it. She wants me to spend my money to get people in and they just might benefit from it. Wow, where di that rant come from?

Well, Joe is on his way home so I am going to get changed for the gym. I have to work off some of this water.

Hi guys! I am so sorry for not being around lately. I just feel like I shouldnt be on here when I am gaining so much weight so fast and cant seem to get a grip on it.I am up to like 245 now and I cant seem to get a routine down that will enable me to lose it. My heels are crushing under my weight now and it hurts. I know all I need to do to stop it is to lose the weight but I cant. I feel like I dont fit in anywhere and to be honest I am very disgusted with myself.

I have been majorly depressed lately because the bakery isnt taking off like it should. I am actually ready to close it and get the equipment sold off and forget about it because I would much rather stay home and work if I am not going to actually be able to make a living out of just the front.We are working so many extra hours per day and not making much for profit. On memorial weekend we made **** for money(like 200.00) but my MIL bakery made 2400.00 a day. I was ready to go beat some tourists that day. They would walk by and literally put their hands up to the window and look in and then walk away and go into the gift shops. So we are trying to figure out what to do about that.

I got a call from Coreys teacher telling me that Corey was acting up in school and she thinks it is because we opened a bakery and werent spending enough time with him. I cried all night after that call because if she thinks I am a lousy parent now then I must always have been because I am home from work when they get off the bus everyday just like always. He has always been a high strung kid in school and I was pretty upset that she had the nerve to actually call me up and say those things to me.

The bridge on the main road to Greenville is unuseable so they are rerouting traffic right by my house now. That makes for fun when I am in the pool and anyone who wants to go to Greenville is flying by my house. I am surprised there hasnt been any accidents yet because I live on a side street in a residential neighborhood and they have tons of traffic and trucks flying by. I hope they get that fixed before the fourth of July. That cut into us walking in the evenings because we dont want to get run over.



Anyways, I am sorry I have been gone so long. I miss you guys too. I have tried to lurk when I can. I posted a couple weeks ago but I was in one of my worst days yet so it was a total downer and I didnt want to bring anyone down with me so I deleted it.

Default We're here for you Angie

Angie, I wish I could just hug you and tell you it's going to be alright. Friends are there for you through good times and bad, so don't ever feel as though you're bringing us down by sharing your problems. We're here for you no matter what.

Many of us go up and down in weight a few times before we really get a grip on our health and move forward for good. Not one woman in this forum is without struggle whether we're 100 pound from goal or 10 pounds from goal. We all know what it's like to get so far just to take so many steos back but what matters is that you keep trying, and whenever you're ready to try again we'll all be here to support and encourage you because we know you would do the same thing for us. You're such a good person and you deserve to have everything you want.

I know you're stressed about the bakery and I won't be so insensitive as to tell you not to. I know you put a lot of time and effort into it. I don't know much about business but I do know that some of the most successful ones started off with road bumps. I hope for the best for you and the business.

As far as your kid's teacher, how dare that ***** judge you! Teachers always feel they have license to tell someone what's wrong with their family. All she was supposed to do was tell you what happened and it's up to you as a parent to determine what might be going on with your child. No one asked for her two cents. The very fact that you cried over it showed how much your kids mean to you. You're a good mom, don't let any self-rightous heiffer tell you otherwise. I'm sure you'll find a way to get through this and get your kid back on track.

No matter what you'll always fit right back in no matter how long it takes for youto get everything together. I should know. I'm in and out all the time You take as much time as you need and let us know how you're doing. Take care, babe. I'm thinking about you.

BTW Crazy how the whole Michael Jackson saga ended, huh.

Angie: I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say "hugs, hugs, and more hugs"!! I am right there with Dips, we are always here for you. I also agree with what she said about your son's teacher. I would never do that; of course, I would call to say what is going on at school, but I would never suggest what the problem may be, although I would listen to the parent. Many of my parents were going through some experiences they weren't prepared for, that is, having a teenager for the first time. Sometimes parents would even ask me what I thought might be the problem. I would tell them that I couldn't answer that because I'm not with the child at home. I don't know everything that happens at home. Dips is right, that teacher should have just told you what was going on at school and let you determine what might be causing it; or at the least, suggest the school counselor to talk to.

I've been meaning to call you, but every time I think about it it's really late where you are or it's during a time that you most likely are at the bakery. I want to let you know that we will be in ME July 2 and 3. We'll be staying in Waterville. I really look forward to meeting you.

Well, my sister is moving here from TX on July 1. She took a job at a hospital here. My brother, a realtor, already found her a house and she's really excited about it. We do keep reminding her how hot it will be here in July. I think our cool days are over. All this week it's supposed to be around 105.

Ashley is sick. She didn't eat breakfast this morning, which had me watching her very closely. She ate some apples just before lunch time and about an hour later started throwing up. She thought it was the apples and she swore she would never eat another apple. Her dad gave her some Sprite and she threw that up and said she'd never drink Sprite either. I told her she just had a little bug and hopefully she'll be feeling better tomorrow. She had only a low grade fever and after I gave her some Tylenol, the fever went down. She's finally sleeping and I hope she sleeps all night.

The landscaping is coming along great. They were working in our yard from 7 this morning until it got too dark for them to see this evening, about 8pm. They're planning to put in the curbing and rocks tomorrow and hopefully the sod, but I don't think they'll finish until Wed or Thurs. If I can figure out how to post pictures, I will of my yard before and after. I can't wait until it's done. Ashley wants it all done so she can play and have her dog, Tucker, back. I do miss him too, but I'm almost afraid to bring him back because he and my friends' dog are getting so close. They play so well together. I told my friend that those two dogs seem to be made for each other. We'll see how it goes when we have to bring him home this weekend.

Sorry for just blabbing on and on. I hope everyone has a great night.

Cal

Hey girls, just bumping up this thread....it's a crazy hectic week for me here. THe Home & Garden Show starts on Friday so we're gearing up for that. I missed my deadline for some ad copy that was due last Friday so I was stuck working on that Monday. On top of that Rick brought the puppy home for Michael on Sunday. She's a sweet little thing, probably all of 1-1/2 lbs? Only about 7 weeks old so she still needs a lot of attention. I have to bring her into the office with me tomorrow since Michael starts his summer program and won't be home to look after her, so just what I need--additional responsibilities while at work . She's a mixed-breed with some cocker spaniel in her, but right now she doesn't resemble any cocker puppy that I ever saw. She's black with white tipped feet and a #7 blaze on her chest. Michael named named her Lucky. I'll try and post pics if I can figure out what happened to my photo software, it seems to have vanished off my hard drive, WTF? I have got to get this computer cleaned out as well.

ANGIE, hey girl, I'm glad to see you posting. We really missed you. Please don't say you don't belong here, you're like family to us, no matter what you're going through we're here for you. I agree wholeheartedly with what Dips and Cal so eloquently said already. We love ya girl, don't feel like you can't bring your troubles to the table if you need some shoulder to cry on.

Hello to all, hope you all have a great day. I'll try and be back later so get more personal.

Hi girls popping in for a bit while dh is outside with the kids having a squirt gun fight. Oh my gosh it is dd's birthday today and I can't believe she is four all ready. Time goes by so fast girls. We took her to a chocolate store today and spent thirty freakin dollars on candy!! Yikes....oh well birthday's are once a year. Dh and I are stuffed with sugar, chocolate, and carmel corn with mixed nuts. Girls I was bad but I am not going to get excited about it at all . What the **** right?? I mean I was in labor with her for two days I deserve to eat!! Oh and McD's for lunch of course .

Angie, I am so glad to see you posted. I remember you once told me we are more about friendships first then the weight loss thing. Always we remember we are friends and YOU do belong here. We love you. I hate to think that the teacher made you feel so bad. I was in a similar situation in December with ds when his teacher said she did not know if he could continue in HER class because he needed to much watching. I cried for days, thinking whats wrong with him. I took him to a specialist and she said he is just a kid that may be just a little active. I came to realize he is normal, just people want to label everyone these days with this and that. Kids are kids, I remember all the phases I went through. Anyway just remember we are all here for you no matter what or where you are at in your life. Hugs girl.

Noelle, hope your week is not that crazy for ya sweetie. Congrats on the new addition to the family. The puppy sounds so cute and I love the name!!

Dips that was a crazy ending to the whole Michael Jackson ending. Wow.

Cal, I feel for you....there is nothing worse than seeing your child throw up and not feel well. It just breaks my heart. I feel so bad for them. I hope your dd feels better really really soon!! Glad the landscaping is going well. Thats just great. Oh and I am so happy for you that your sister is moving by you. She is in for some heat !! Stay cool and drink a lot.

Check back later girls. Hi Kempy and Cherie, hope you two are doing well!!

Noelle I wanted to say maybe you could train that little cutie now to help you out in the office. Train her to bring stuff to you and do things . Hey at least she wouldn't talk back like another person,LOL.

Kempy about your rant , not that it is funny but you tell that lady who is all over you to come up some damn ideas to get people in!! Or you are right, have her pay for some of the add if you are going to be promoting her shop!! End of my rant for ya .

Gotta run. Birthday still in progress
