Hey, Monica, Stella (HDStreetBob) has been posting in the Nutrisystem Ladies section of the forum. I dropped by and said Hey to her over there and she said she might visit us sometime!

Girls, girls, girls, what is up with all the Cinnamon bun talkie? Do you know what y'all are doing to me?

Debi, what do you teach?

Gayle I really don't believe you when you say you only work at a booze store, I think that you do phone sex for a job or at least for kicks. lol

Shelley I am glad that the storm is down graded. Thank you for praying for us. A few years ago we painted our sunroom but I did mention a few months ago that we were working on the garden room. It was Jay's bedroom. I will post pics when we are done.

Debi enjoy the quiet moments in your classroom while you can. It will soon be busy.

Monica thanks for the continued prayers. Larry has someone come in to sort his files but that is about it so far. His boss keeps telling him everything will be ok but I am not to sure. The only reason he is still hanging on there is that he has been out of the office a few times the last couple of weeks. We will see how he does but he looks so wiped.
Have fun at the birthday party. It sounds like a blast!

Allison I love labs. When we were kids we had a black one called Satan. My cousin named it. They are so friendly.

Cheryl we are so bad talking about cinnamon buns when we are all trying to lose or maintain. Tomorrow is my monthly weigh in. I am not to sure how I did. I know that I am under goal but I think that I gainned this month.

Well time to go off and be pampered. Dez is here.

Dee, you found me out! Giggles! Honestly, I use to work in an adult store...can you believe it? In fact, I run into a lot of my old customers at the liquor store! LOL!

Cheryl, you must try the refrigerated cinnamon buns with frosting! They are a real treat at 110 calories each. I had two the other night and was very satisfied.

Allison, when is weigh-in for you?

Well, must run! Will be back later!

Cinnamon buns...hot gooey cinnamon buns dripping with warm sugary glaze! Mmmmm! No, no, no! Must not eat cinnamon buns...must throw...cinnamon buns...at the rabbits! That would make hot cross bunnies right?

Dee ~ I've been sewing just about my whole life, but only quilting seriously for about 6 years. In fact, I just entered a piece in my first quilt show. I'm really excited that something I made is actually going to hang in the show! It's an original design based on the blue star banners that you see hanging in the windows of homes who have a family member in the service. It's entitled "A Blue Star for Travis" and entered under the challenge category. The challenge was to create a quilt under 30" x 30" that contains at least one star.

Have a great time today! You and Dez both deserve some pampering!

Monica ~ Congratulations on the loss! You are doing great!

Allison ~ Welcome to the group! I know you'll love it here!

Shelley ~ I'm glad to hear that Ernesto fizzled out before he got to your area! I'm hoping that we get as lucky! The forecast is that the remnants will make a direct hit over our area and then stall causing major flooding. We have had over 4 inches of rain here over the past 4 days and the ground is already saturated, so any heavy rain at all is going to cause big problems here.

Debbi ~ Diet? What diet? Could be better, could be worse, but I am using my treadmill every day so that counts for something!

Gayle, Dee and all the other Floozies ~ You have no idea how much your posts brighten my days! It's so nice to come here and chuckle!

I weigh daily--it keeps me honest. I am realistic and understand that the scale is never constant, but if it goes down, I try extra hard to be good to keep it going down. If it goes up, I try extra hard to make it go down instead. So you'd think I'd try extra hard all the time? Nope, if I don't weigh myself daily, I imagine that I am doing fine and I don't really work at being good. Weird, I know.

Cinnabons-----I had to fly out of town a few weeks ago at a ridiculously early hour. Since the latest "no liquid" thing going on at airports, and all the new restrictions, I had to be at the airport extra early so no time to eat before hand. I managed to get on the plane with no problem, and just had coffee and that itty-bitty packet of snack during the flight, but when I got off the plane that whole airport smelled of cinnabons! I walked right past! Then what happens? I'm visiting my parents (my mom had mitral valve surgery, so I went to help out) and my Mom's friend popped over to deliver FRESH HOMEMADE CINNAMON ROLLS! So I had one.

Oh, my labs--I love them! Chico is almost 2 years old. We've had him almost a year (he lived in a pet store for his first year--poor baby) and Buddy is about 13--he's a rescue dog. We used to have a Golden Retriever, she died last summer at age 16.

Allison-Your dogs are beautiful. Do they act as gorgeous as they are??

Gayle-I really need to get back on Core. I have been eating animal crackers by the gobs at night. I have had too many carbs lately (not the good carbs.) My problem is, I just don't know what to eat right now because of my stomach. I am constantly bloated, going to the potty and just feeling awful in my tummy. I think it's been a couple of years since I've had a flare like this. I have upped my Colozal. I don't want to call GI, because I know he'll put me on prednisone. I just can't face it with not being able to run. My weight is staying at 132 right now, and I really need it under 130 to look decent.

Monica-Thanks for checking on Stella. I was wondering where she's been.

Dee-I think you're right about Gayle. That sex maniac! Hey, what about you, Princess??

Suzy-You're quilt is very pretty. It must have taken quite a bit of time and patience.

Debi-I didn't realize you teach college. I can't imagine having to put up with college kids and their sarcastic comments!

CINNAMON BUNS?? I would eat the whole pan, don't think we have them in Canada anyway.
Suzy - I know what you mean about the diet up and downs. I start the day positive and then blow it after supper.
I weighed in yesterday was up .2 pound. Could have been worse I guess but it seems I just can't get it together.
Do you think inflammation makes you weigh more?
I got a cortisone shot yesterday, not quite as sore today. When I go back the end of September he is going to put me on the methetroxate shots once a week. It will be added to all the meds I take now.
Dee- Its good that getting out of the office helps Larry cope. How is your back these days. Does the change in weather give you grief?
Ernesto is headed this way for the weekend, it is supposed to rain for three days.
Fatten up that donkey Laura. Time to hit the road.

I teach Anatomy and Physiology. Also teach other biology classes as needed each semester. Actually like the college students, but at our college, we have many non-traditional students. They are the older students. They are the ones who are there because they want to be and they are serious. I also tear down and set up the various labs in the department each week. I really like my job!

Shelley, how was the storm? Any problems? I know my cousin and her family are at Disney and have to stay till Friday, can't get a flight out, for some reason, due to the storm.

Dee how was the day of pampering for you and Dez?

I really have to run, but wanted to say hi and let you know, these posts give me a chuckle every day!! Thanks!

Deb, a giggle a day keeps the doctor away! LOL! Sounds like you have an interesting profession, I'm happy you found a job you love. It makes all the difference in the world if you like your job and look forward to going to work.

Suzy, you are so talented! The quilt is BEAUTIFUL! I love the name too... I'm so happy for you entering your first quilt show, I bet it won't be your last!

Janice, I hope you find relief soon! I bet one does experience weight gain with inflammation. Its my understanding inflamed areas retain more fluid. Do you have the stall setup for the donkey yet?

Allison, you have such sweet baby's! Labs are one of my favorite breeds. I am partial to large breed dogs, that is why we have a 1/2 Shepard, 1/2 rott mix and a border collie mix in our backyard. Both are rescues. I won't even go into our indoor house animals! Just call us the Hall Zoo! My new addition is two baby hatchling turtles!
Are you riding with a saddle or going bareback?? LOL!

Shelley, sweetie.....hmmmm you got me thinking here.....how about if you try eating more of a whole food diet? WW pasta, WW rice, cooked veggies & fruit? Do you think that would help your little tum-tum? Maybe oatmeal or yogurt in the morning...something along that line? I am thinking cooked veggies & fruit maybe better for your tummy right now compared to all of the work it would need to do, processing roughage such as tossed salads etc.

Dee, post pics when you finish! Sounds lovely! I like the idea of neutrals and then just having one thing pop!
Hey, miss watercolor queen, have you ever used the watercolor pencils? I purchased a kit and am going to try my hand. Although, it probably would be better if I knew watercolor technique. Do you have any suggestions for a beginner? I have so missed painting, drawing, the urge is hitting me strong. I'm going to try to incorporate it into my busy life.

Cheryl, thank you for starting a new thread. You take such good care of us! How is the Stew man doing? I bet you are so busy with school, job, Stew etc!!!

Gotta go! Off to mow! Send me "get this over with quick" vibes!

Send some of those "get this mowing over with quick" vibes here too! I didn't get lawns cut here last week because of the rain and it looks like today is going to be the only nice day before Ernesto arrives. I'm babysitting today, so I am going to try and get both lawns done this evening...wish me luck!

Absolutely NOT! I got a call from my DS the other day--he was on his way out of the house to go to the neighbors when he saw Chico with a deat rat in his mouth.......in the living room. I had to run home and dispose of the thing as my son was too upset to do it himself! Funny thing is, I think Chico caught the thing himself and brought it in (we have doggie doors so they have the freedom to go in and out at will). We've had a bit of a problem with rats in the back yard and we have traps set out, and neither trap had been touched. BTW--rats are common here in the desert--they tend to live in citrus trees and eat the fruit.

Buddy has his moments, too. He'll eat anything. When we were preparing for my DD's birthday several years ago he got into the goodie bags and ate 10 packages of Bubbleishus bubble gum (that's like 80 pieces!!!). Another time, he chewed into a Christmas present and gnawed into a tin of Hershey's chocolate kisses and ate the whole bag (including part of the bag). Last year, Buddy had some cosmetic surgery--he had 17 warts removed from his head. The things we do for our animals!

Just popping in this morning to say GOOD MORNING. I am off downtown for my weigh in. I know I gainned but I am not going to let any more pounds come on. I am happy with my weight right now but if I was a few pounds lighter I would even be happier. The story of our life. Well I better get going. I will try to get back later and post.

Good Morning Floozies,

Suzy - The quilt is BEAUTIFUL !!! Travis must be very pleased to have it named for him.

Gayle - An adult store...LOL and you are still sane. I went into one once years ago, but those parties now those are fun. Been years but they were alot of fun watching the reaction of some of the ladies.

Allison - I use to weigh in every day too, but now I just do it once a week, whatever you are doing it works !!! Keep up the great job. My 3rd daughter has a silver lab. Many people think that it's a mix but she has had 2 littlers and they are not. They take two very light chocolate's and breed them and with luck you get a silver. She had 7 out of 9 last Feb. Breegan ( her girl) is a sweet gal and always good around the kids.

Dee- How'd the weight in go today??? With all you have going on it has to be hard to maintain.

Janice - Glad to hear the shot gave you a little relief. Hope you're feeling better.

I went to the site ( NS ) that Stella posts at and told her I was just worried about her and was glad she was still posting. Maybe she'll stop by to say hi.
The dinner went well last night. I saved points all day so I could enjoy it. Had a salad, 1/2 baked potatoe ( brought my butter beads and LF sour cream) and had a steak, which I brought about 3/4 home. I was full, and I remembered to quit. Helen was so suprised, 15 people showed, 4 of her kids, plus a cousin and a neighbor, plus are gang. She was holding up the nightie and some young guys at the bar started to whistle....she turned bright red.

We too are having alot of rain, so I am going to try to cut the grass before it starts again. I have a daughter ( 2nd oldest, Deirdre) that is due tomorrow with her 4th so I might be off for a few days. I am watching the older ones and then staying with her for 1-2 days.

Have a SAFE HOLIDAY WEEK-END ALL.

Monica

Five Finger Prayer
This is so neat. I had never heard this before. This is beautiful - and it is surely worth making the 5 finger prayer a part of our lives.

1. Your thumb is nearest you. So begin your prayers by praying for those closest to you. They are the easiest to remember. To pray for our loved ones is, as C. S. Lewis once said, a "sweet duty."
2. The next finger is the pointing finger. Pray for those who teach, instruct and heal. This includes teachers, doctors, and ministers. They need support and wisdom in pointing others in the right direction. Keep them in your prayers.
3. The next finger is the tallest finger. It reminds us of our leaders. Pray for the president, leaders in business and industry, and administrators. These people shape our nation and guide public opinion. They need God's guidance.
4. The fourth finger is our ring finger. Surprising to many is the fact that this is our weakest finger, as any piano teacher will testify. It should remind us to pray for those who are weak, in trouble or in pain. They need your prayers day and night. You cannot pray too much for them.
5. And lastly comes our little finger - the smallest finger of all which is where we should place ourselves in relation to God and others. As the Bible says, "The least shall be the greatest among you." Your pinkie should remind you to pray for yourself. By the time you have prayed for the other four groups, your own needs will be put into proper perspective and you will be able to pray for yourself more effectively.

If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
Happy moments, praise God.
Difficult moments, seek God.
Quiet moments, worship God.
Painful moments, trust God.
Every moment, thank God.

Received this today and thought I would share. I sent it on to a few of you that I had email addresses.

DEEEEEEE: Could you send me your mailie again? For some reason, I keep getting your mail back. Did you change addresses?

Gayle that’s right I forgot that you told me that you had worked at one of those specialty stores that I get XXX rated email from daily. That is so funny that you see some of the same customers at the liquor store.
So where did you find those 2 turtles?
It is nice to know that you will be trying to fit in painting, I know that you enjoy it so much. I have had a little experience with the water color pencils. You can use them a few different ways. Use them dry and them brush water across your colors you want to soften. It is best to leave some pencil. You can load your brush with water and dab it on your pencil like when you use water paints. You can also try scraping a bit of the pencil onto an area of wet paper for a different effect. A dull pencil is better than a sharp one. Watercolor paper is best. It is fun to play with it. You will get the idea once you give them a try. I am sure that you will find it is very different that oil painting. Let me know how you do.
Oh yeah I remember reading that you had emailed me a letter to see how I was doing. It never did reach me. I email is still the same. I will send you something and you can see if it is the addie that you have.
Nice prayer by the way.

Suzy that’s right they make hot cross bunnies. That’s a good one! That is what I need to do with all my sweets. Keep up the good work on your daily walk on the tread mill. That is one sure way to maintain.
Your quilt is beautiful and has so much meaning. You must be proud. I never knew that parents hang a blue star banner in the windows of homes that have a family member in the service. That’s neat.
I know that you have told me before who’s second lawn you cut but I forgot. Is it you parent’s that live next door?

Allison your dogs are beautiful. They are such a good nature dog. When I seen your picture I remembered that we also had a white lab given to us from a police officer. He use to grab hold of my little brother by the shirt when he headed towards the high way. He was one of the family’s fav.
You said that Buddy is a rescue dog. Do you work with him or is he retired now?
Oww rats yuck!

Shelley when I ha tummy problems before I would eat mostly homemade soups. They were filled with lots of easy to digest veggies and made with a meat stock. If you can’t eat the veggies eat the broth with a few whole wheat crackers.
I haven’t been behaving very well either, I have been on a sweet kick again. I need to stop eating sweets for 3 days and then the cravings die down. Those three days are tough though.

Janice I am glad that the shot seem to help a bit already. I know what it is like taking a lot of meds. I hate it. I have been known to cut down meds and tell the doctor later. He knows me by now as you can all tell it is my second home.
My back is seems to have improved in the last 6 weeks. I am affected by the weather so that might be it. I never thought of that until you asked me if the weather affects me. I just knew I seen some improvement. The cold really bothers me.
Stay dry. We might be getting some rain today. We sure have strong winds today. If I hadn’t gained a few pounds this month I think that the wind would have taken me a way while I was downtown.

Debi I am glad that you get a laugh out of the posts. I enjoy coming here because you never know what you are going to be reading. We have so many great friends here.
Dez and I had a wonderful time yesterday. It is so nice to go to the spa. They make you feel pampered from the time you walk in the door and they give you your little bag with flip flops and a robe. Considering that I don’t work it is hard to believe that I feel stressed that I didn’t even know that I had, but I felt it drain as we soaked in the mineral spa listening to the water cascade down the rocks into our pool. It was nice spending some time with Dez and the message was fantastic.

Monica wow your daughter will have four children. She sure will be busy not like she wasn’t with three children. Let us know how she does.
I weighed in today and I was 2 pounds up since last month. I expected it so time to get cracking and watch what I eat.
