Kelly, yes, the trip was nice. I met the rest of John's immediate family. I had known his four kids but had not seen some of them for over 20 years. I met his daughters in law and his grandkids. All went well.

I am working now in an office in Old Mill. My schedule varies each week as to day and time. I'm enjoying it. Have been doing training and will have a test over the training material next Friday.

Well.. I guess things got a little inactive since I was here last. How is everyone?

I started an entirely new account (awhile ago) and am now starting to commit to losing weight. If you don't remember me, I think my old name was ke11ybean or jae or turtle or something like that. I have a son named Jacoby.

So, what's new for you guys? Let's see, I had twins (who are now 17 months old). A boy and girl. I got married, and am about to get a divorce because y'know, wrong choices. Jacoby is 9, he's homeschooled (for now). I work in a clinic, vs a nursing home or prison.

Happy to be back... hoping to get people more active.

We have taken both of our new vehicles on longer trips and we both agree that the little Jeep Patriot is a pretty decent ride for a smaller SUV. There are a lot of Jeep features that we're enjoying.
And, thanks Mako, on your comments about Cole. It was pretty scary overall with the wreck, even though it was mainly a destroyed automobile.
In regards to the pet sitting, I don't think you'd want our 2 crazy doggies for any length of time - they are wacko!!

The vehicle is totaled - just have to figure out how much we'll get for it - hopefully enough to pay off the loan! Hubby and I traded in our 2006 Dodge Caravan tonight and leased a Subaru Forester. I haven't driven it (I've wanted a Subaru Outback for years but they seem to sit a little low to the ground compared to what we've been driving) but hubby absolutely loves the way it handles.

Our son (who is ALMOST 21) had a wreck with one of our vehicles tonight on his way home from work. He wasn't hurt too badly (hit his forehead and got a tiny cut I guess) on the rearview mirror but we're pretty sure the vehicle is nearly totaled. I guess we'll find out once insurance gets a chance to peek at it next week. Had to have it towed to Inter-Tech, a local place that we've used for body work, and it'll sit there until Monday at least.

Just signed up for Spark People Premium membership for $29.99 - it's a one-time payment which means I don't have to wade through all the ads that pop up! For me - it's worth it since I use both the mobile apps and on-line.

Wow - doggies had their first overnight boarding last night. Mia, our Yorkiepoo, acted like it was the scariest thing in the world and when I picked them up and she could hardly get her breathe as she pulled and pulled on her leash to get out of there and Daisy, our Llasapoo, was just like "ooh, that was so fun, when can I do that again!" Those two doggies are so different from each other.

Didn't get a chance to check in before midnight last night. Felt strange not to end my night catching up with SparkPeople. Hubby and I went car shopping last night - I leased a Jeep Patriot for 3 years. I haven't had a new car (just new "used" cars/vans) since 1984! Feels weird to drive something with all the newfangled gadgets.

Daughter's year old apartment is having trouble with their air conditioner. She's been staying with us while her hubby is at his training for Reserves and she stopped by tonight with Dad and her apartment was 108 degrees.

Yes, Carolyn. Wedding plans are keeping us busy. The invitations went out this morning - I spent about an hour last night filling out the last few inserts about the wedding reception and stuffing envelopes and then licking all the envelopes. Glad that's done!

Safe travels to you and hope your speaking engagement goes well.

Kelly, I'm sure you're busy with wedding plans.

I'm leaving tomorrow for a speaking trip in Minnesota. I canceled several activities this week just so I could stay home and get some prep done for speaking, plus other projects in my home. It's been great. I should do that more often.

Went to meet with our hairdresser to have him play with Sarah's hair - trying to decide how she's wearing it for the wedding. Things are getting close since we're under the 60 days and now on our countdown. Invitations are ready for the mail.

My daughter told me about the Megabus when she was in college. She had a chance to go to Chicago with some friends and they were going to go that way but it ended up falling through for some reason. Enjoy your time with your brother when he gets here. It's been really nice for getting outside and walking - I love the fresh, clean air.

It was wonderful having my friend here for four days. She came and left on the Megabus. I had never heard of that company before. My brother won't come for another ten days.
I SHOULD get out and walk.

Retirement is not for sissy s! I reached an overload of activities I'm doing and had to start eliminating some. I'm really excited that I have a friend coming in tomorrow by bus, from Chicago. She also used to live in Africa. We've not seen each other since 2009. She'll be able to stay visiting for four days. I'm so looking forward to her being here.
Also, my brother is coming for a day later this month. He hasn't seen my condo yet so I'm looking forward to his visit as well.
Ne Furniture is supposed to deliver my new bed today, the one for the guest bedroom!!

Positive thinking at this point. Be more consistent in exercise, loose that last 10. And try to do something creative at least every week, more often when possible.
