Good afternoon, peeps!

Well, another TOM has arrived, and it is once again a very painless one ! On top of that, I haven't retained any water nor has my skin broken out like it usually does! I think this is the body's way of thanking me for all that good food and activity.

To answer the portfolio question: I do some modeling on a part time basis, and since becoming blonde cuteness , I had to have new pics taken. And speaking of modeling, Sally Hansen Nails is having a big promo at some Wal-Marts and Wal-Mart Supercenters on Friday the 30th from 4-8 pm-and there is a Super Wal-Mart about 20 minutes from me that is on the list I got earlier today; I applied as a promo model for that store. It pays $12 an hour. I should be hearing something before the end of the week whether I got the job or not for that area.

Default I'm Back!!

Hi Ladies!!!
I'm Home I'm sure I have a lot to catch up on, and I will do that tomorrow. For now I just stopped in for a quick Howdy!
We had a wonderful vacation, but I'll be happy to sleep in my own bed tonight. 8 nights of hotel mattresses haven't been kind to my back!
Talk to you tomorrow!

hi guys... don't have a lot of time but wanted to check in really quick.

Tina... Your kittens are soooo sweet !!! And how exciting that they were born on Tony's b-day.
I hope you are having a great time at the races.

Deon... Thank you so much for posting your photo.
It is so nice to have a face to put with the names and posts.
You look so young. How old are you??

Amanda...That was such a good post you wrote !!

Thin... Isn't it the pits when you have a college education and still don't have a job. My youngest graduated in May too and although she is going on to Pharmacy school in the fall... her job she got for the summer does NOT match in pay considering she is a college graduate. It's enough to make you want to "spit".
PLUS.... good luck on your election race. I wish I was there to vote for you.

Michelle... Thanks for starting the new thread. You are an angel.

Sandy... be easy on her. LOL

Lynne... It is GREAT that you are walking... but please avoid those dark streets !!!!

Sara... I am so happy your surgery went well. But you should not get on this computer until the doctor gives his okay. We miss you... but we want your well being over your posting.

Steph... A new car !!!! WOW !!!! Congratulations !!! I am thinking about getting one too. I have to make up my mind soon... I need new tires BAD... especially with all the trips to Missouri I make. I don't want to spend the money on tires and then sell the car.

Mary... hope you had fun in chat. Now that American Idol is over.. maybe I will be able to get into Wed night sometime soon. I just find it hard to keep up in chat rooms. By the time I read and then type a reply.. everyone has gone to a different topic. LOL Plus I have so many typos to repair it is hard to keep up.

Lori.. good luck getting the job.

Tracy... I am so sorry you missed meeting Tina...
But look at the bright side... now no one will have to be jealous anymore. LOL

Kat, .... Happy Memorial Day to you too.

If I left anyone else out I apologize. The older I get the more forgetful I get.

Okay... I am headed for bed. I spent almost 4 hours on the golf course being a caddy for my DH, daughter and boyfriend. It was fun.... but all that fresh air has worn me out. LOL I can't quit yawning. Good night everyone.

Barb.. you snuck in on me. LOL I know what you mean about being back in your own bed. Ahhhhhhh

Hidey Ho, everyone! Just got in from my second day as 'showgirl'. Long days. YIKES! Had to be there at 1:00 and just got home at midnight. Got to see Bruce Almighty. It was pretty funny. I liked Liar, Liar better though. We have the job again next Saturday and Sunday.

One more day and we leave for Niagara Falls. I can't wait. Three days away from everyone and everything with my sweet honey. Now that's what I call VACATION!!! And with working this weekend and next as a 'showgirl', we can afford another get away real soon.

Election stuff is heating up. I thrive on the chaos, my honey told me, so chaos it is!!! Two weeks from today is the election. I don't know that I really want the job, so I'm not going to ask you all to cross your fingers.

Deon: I'm glad you reconsidered and are sticking with WW. Good for you on the loss. The picture is great. Thanks for sharing.

Amanda: Cute kitty. I'm glad you were able to save that bunny. One morning last summer I looked out on my front lawn and there was a bunny with an arrow through it's neck. Not enough to kill him, but enough to hurt him. He wouldn't let me catch him and as he was hopping through the fence he dislodged the arrow. I hope he was ok.

Michelle: Glad to see you back around more often.

Lynne: Sounds like you're on a roll! * Pansies are one of my favorites too. I bought some Icicle Pansies last fall. They are bred up in Canada, near Toronto, and they're made for the colder climates. You plant them in the fall and they are pretty, they go dormant for the Winter, and then they multiply in the Spring. Mine are just beautiful right now. I like pansies because of their cute little 'faces'.

Sara: Glad the surgery went well. I went to the eye doctor and he wants me to see a Retina specialist. Something about my eyeball he didn't like.

Sandy: Good to see you even if you're not behaving. Actually, that's when you should be in here most.

Tina: Hope you had a great time at the race.

Katrina: My thoughts and prayers are with you, honey. It's a difficult time for you. [[[hugs]]]

Tracy: Gosh, I'm sorry you and Tina didn't get to hook up. I'm sure it was just an oversite. There are lots of races in the Carolina area, maybe you can catch her next time. I don't think she's coming here to Michigan for the race on the 15th of June either. I would have liked to meet up with her.

Steph: I love Grand Am's and Grand Prix. Yours sounds beautiful!!!

Lori: My kitty doesn't do that so I can't help you out with an answer.

Mary: Sorry, no chat for me. I did check in when I got back from the theatre last night at midnight, but no one was there.

2cute: I'm so glad the sale went so well for you. That's one more thing you can count as done.

Barb: I'm so glad you're back so I can thank you for sending me that tape. That said, I haven't had a spare moment to sit down and watch it yet. But rest assured that I will...soon. Glad you had a great trip. And I hear you on the mattress thing. Me too.

I'm going to head to bed. We close on our re-finance tomorrow. Yes, I know it's a holiday, but I'm dealing with a bank branch in a grocery store and they're open from 10-2, so I made it for tomorrow and honey doen't have to waste a vacation day.

See you all later.

Unhappy It's raining, it's pouring...again!

We are quite waterlogged in these here parts...I can't even remember the last sunny day we had...somewhere around Mother's Day, I think. On the bright side, everything is wonderfully green!

I'm not even going to try to catch up...just starting fresh, here and now. It's Monday! New week! Even though it's a holiday.
Any good BBQs planned? My son was supposed to march in the parade with the Boy Scouts today... That ain't happenin'! We went to my brother's house for an impromptu barbecue yesterday...my two brothers and their families, sis and family, Mom and Dad and us...well, that's 18 people right there...it was fun, but I had to work... I'm exhausted...I'm surprised I'm still awake.

I'll try tp reply later...yawning too much now...

Thanks for the condolences...Love you girls!

Good Morning all,
I just watched the movie "2Weeks Notice" wonderful movie, I loved it. We also watched "Waking up in Reno" lastnight, that was so stupid it was funny.
Alexis and I are off to the Parade today. We had a family turkey fry yesterday so I don't know if we are doing anything today? I don't think so, but our family tends to do things on a whim sometimes, so one never knows.
Mary: It was really neat seeing each other on Webcam, and yes, it is almost like meeting, at least the next best thing. And I always forget that I have a mic too and I can actually talk versus typing...LOL.
Tina: I hate when the races get Rained out, especially such a big race like that. I wonder if Jimmy Johnson would have really won? I guess we will just never know, but there sure was a lot of race left and anything could have happend. Poor Tony, I wish him luck next week and hope all his problems are left behind him. Seems like the poor man can't cut a break this year, but his spirits are high still.
2cute: hope the bed felt good last night. And I was not sure what you ment about "don't be to hard on her?"
Barb: I'm sure your own bed felt good again too, glad you had a wonderful vacation.
Thin: Thanks for the encouragement, and I know I need to be here more to get my behind back on track. And it keeps my fingers busy.
Amanda: Hope all is going well there. How is the WW plan coming? Did you find more information?
Kat: The sun is supposed to shine long enough here for the parade, then they say rain again this afternoon. I will be glad when sunny days are here again.
Okay, sorry to leave others out, but I got to get my butt in the shower its now after 9:30 and I have to be at my friends house to load up the van full of kids for the parade at 11. Oh moms jobs are never done.

Talk to you all later,

I note that you are celebrating Memorial Day - what is that for?

I had another good day today. Worked in the garden a bit more. Although we're renting, we're planning on being here for a few years, so want to landscape the garden so it is bearable. I've always wanted a water feature, so we're going to build up a waterfall and little pond / stream. We've managed to score some boulders and slate from a house being demolished across the road, and some broken concrete slabs for paving from my parents. So I've been outside tidying up, and then in the next few days we've got to weed the whole area, get the soil turned over, and then start digging! The idea is that we will plant herbs in and around the waterfall and pond. I've got a really good image in my head, so hopefully it will turn out ok. The great thing is that this will hardly cost us anything, apart from a few plants, as most of the materials we're getting free from people!!!

I also went for my big walk again. 4.8km in 45 minutes!!!

Food's been pretty good, but my gosh it adds up! It's soo good that I'm journalling, because at least I can keep an eye on what I'm eating. Therefore, if I don't lose weight, I can look back on the week and see where I've made mistakes and how I can avoid them again.

Lori, it's great that you're doing modelling - I've always wanted to get into it, but a few years ago I was told I could be a model if I lost weight - and I was a lot skinnier then!!! Over here, if you're over a size 14 you're considered too big. I'm hoping one day that that will change, and the industry will finally get a realistic view of the woman's body! I mean, the models are all size 8's, but the average Australian woman is a 16!!! idiots!!!

Thin, hope you enjoy your little holiday. Whenever I think of Niagara Falls, I think of Superman. hee hee

2cute, golfing is supposed to be really good exercise - 4 hours! No wonder you were tired!

I'm off to bed. Take it easy!

Just came in for a sneak peek and thought I better clear up a couple of misconceptions. LOL

Lynne... I did NOT play golf ... I just drove the golf cart for 4 hours.
I should have said I was the chaffeaur instead of the caddy. LOL
I do not play... I am an observer who drives. LOL
Hopefully someday I will be able to start playing.

Sandy... I was refering to Michelle's comment after starting this thread.
She said she had to post before the 'Posting Police' got after her. LOL
She then asked "where are you Sandy" in the same sentence. LOL
She did post .. but not a lot.
I was just teasing to not be too hard on her for not posting very much. LOL
I was trying to be funny... but unsuccessfully.

Mary... enjoy your picnic. Make smart choices and enjoy the people more than the food.

Kat ... come on over to Oklahoma... our weather is just BEAUTIFUL here.

Thin... enjoy your vacation to Niagara Falls. I am jealous.

Okay... I am out of here. Love you all.

OH 2cute: I get it now....it's that blonde gene thing that had me all confussed....please bear with me on that...LOL You are still funny.

Lynne: Our Memorial Day is the day we remember and thank and give tribute to our veterans. Somehow it has also gone in to the day we remember everyone that has died, as we go off and place flowers and such at all of our relatives gravesides also. There are always parades that include veterans and firetrucks, girlscouts, boyscouts and bands and so on. Then people seem to have kind of a family/friend day and have picinics and stuff or luncheons. We did ours yesterday, and it was a good thing since today as soon as the parade was over it started to rain. Hope that answers your question.

Boy it sure is quiet on here today, so there must be good weather somewhere and people picinicing..

Hugs to all,

Sandy... I thought Veteran's Day was the day we honored our Veterans and Memorial Day is for all people who have passed.
Does anyone else know ??? Now I am curious.

2cute? I don't have a clue now? LOL.....I know we honor our Veterans on veterans day, but I thought originally that we honored them on Memorial day too? I could be totally wrong you know, I'm not an expert. And I wonder if there is a specific definition of the day? Anyway, I do know that it is a day to honor ones that have passed on.

Anyone else know? HUMMMMMM??????

Lightbulb Heres what I got online

Okay, I went to the search bar and typed it in and here is what I got.

Memorial Day
Email this encyclopedia entry to a friend

U.S. holiday. Originally held in commemoration of soldiers killed in the Amer. Civil War (1868), its observance later extended to all U.S. war dead. Most states conform to the federal practice of observing it on the last Monday in May, but some retain the traditional day of celebration, May 30. National observance is marked by the placing of a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery.

I think that explains it.
