Hi everyone - quick check in - been a long weekend - 11 calves....3 sets of twins but 2 sets didn't make it...really bothers me which bothers DH becuase I have such a hard time with that. Had a wonderful afternoon with Jacie.....starting to smile..gets this little crooked smile - so cute....had her from 11 - 8....would love to do that every weekend but now the other grandparents are home so I suppose I will have to share now....well, we do live closer though!

Catch up with everyone tomorrow - night all!

Hello everyone,

Little gray and windy outside. We went shooting just for something to do. I really like it... and it gives us some family time. Anyway, I took up grout yesterday and I am going to replace it tomorrow with some darker earth-tone color. I too want to get my kitchen painted- we changed all of our interior lighting over the last month and now I have to paint. I'm kind of looking forward to the change.... but not the work. I hate painting. Yet, I will do it and meditate through it :)

Denise,

Sounds like a great plan. You have to take it one task at a time or it can be overwhelming. It will all get done, but like you said, "priority" first. Oh: my pup is doing good- thank you for asking. I'm so happy that it wasn't something worse.... just a urinary tract infection.

Lisa,

I would have loved to watch your two babies trying to down all that food.... why doesn't it surprise me that your son finished (hmmmmmm...probably because all of my boys would have too... LOL). I have to take my hat off to Bre though- she tried!!!! That's just plain brave and impressive.

Dianne,

Lucky you girl..... I can just imagine how rocking your grandbaby must feel. Enjoy girl.

Jeanette,

How are you doing? I just want you to know that I am thinking about you! (((HUG)))

Kare,

I love mornings where I can just have a little "ME" time. I'm glad you got some of that today- you deserve it.


Hello to our new girls.... please let us know how you are doing......

Tina

hello all!
today was a fun day of shopping around and getting some ideas for home improvements...one step at a time though. dh found a new replacement for his old recliner--and we picked out a new vanity to replace the one that got burnt. we are taking things slowly-goal one is to get the kitchen and our hallway painted before my daughter's graduation party in may.
then we will work on our bedroom( no one sees that, so it's lower priority)

Tina--how is your pup doing?

Dianne--hope you had a fun time babysitting--rocking that little darling is good therapy:)

Jeanette-how is Becky coming along?
and what's the news w/your FIL?

Tammy-guess what? I think we are heading to vegas to celebrate my 50th this summer!! I am checking out the prices--we were supposed to go 2 years ago..but it wasn't feasible financially---so, it just may be possible this summer!!

Sherry, I just got done my walk and I must say I missed my g/f Leslie...I am kicking Jillian to the curb...let's hope this gets my 10lbs off before summer!!
your day...via facebook....sounded crazy w/the weather conditions...get some rest tonight.

Kare-glad you got to enjoy some extra time this morning --sunday mornings are usually very lazy for me, but today I was up and at mass by 8...couldn't sleep much...

well, I am still w/o my laptop--for about 2 more weeks:( so I am sharing w/ dh now...

hi to Lisa---happy b-day to Brody and congrats on the challenge!! funny how bre couldn't hand w/ her little brother--lol!!

hi Brenda--hope all is well w/ you again...

take care all my friends--a three day week is ahead--YAY!!

Denise
You've got to say, I think that if I keep working at this and want it badly enough I can have it. It's called perseverance.

good rainy afternoon from Ohio!

Well, It's official...Only in Ohio do we get warm sunshine, snow, ice, and rain all within a week's time...Grrr! LOL I just want my flip flops on for good!!! hahaha!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hope everyone is having a good weekend! We are celebrating Brody's 16th birthday tonight with family. His actual B-day is April 1st.

Last night we went to a place called Hoggy's near Cleveland for dinner! Bre and Brody both wanted to try their "challenge" meal for a T-shirt! LOL!
it consisted of
1/2 rack of ribs
1/2 BBQ chicken
7" pulled pork sandwich
cornbread
and 1 side dish (they both chose mac&cheese)

Brody finished it all in 20 min, Bre got the ribs and 1/2 the cornbread ate and when she started on the chicken, she got ill looking at the "veins" she is used to eating bonless skinless chicken breasts...was not dealing well with bones and veins! LOL!
Needless to say no T-shirt for Bre and lots of doggie bags for us! LOL But it was fun! She decided that food challenges are over rated! LOL!
Brody's t-shirt says "Pork Star" on the back...pretty funny stuff!

Have a great rest of the day!
Lisa

Kare - glad things are looking up for both of you....sciatic nerve is something I struggle with also - thankfully it hasn't bothered me in awhile but when it does..wow, hard to move...

Been a busy weekend here - had 9 calves yesterday...would have been 11 but we lost a set of twins...but then a heifer had a set today! So far they are doing ok...thought I was eating ok but the scale was up a little - think I will wait until the 1st now and see where I'm at...I keep telling myself as long as I am still in my 8 - 10's I'm ok...

Have the little darling today...DS and wife went to Fargo for the day... she is so good...loves to lay and look around..only fusses when she's wet or hungry. Oh course she's only a month old so that could change...ha..off to rock her for awhile before she gets too big for that....have a great Sunday!

MOrning! A quiet start to the morning, I got to sleep in and Brian got Dwayne up. Very nice to laze around in bed until 9:30! Beautiful sunny day supposed to be about 13C which is above normal for here. Hoping to get out for a short walk as it's supposed to rain a good part of the week.

Puttered around and got income tax stuff ready and did a few chores that I couldn't convince Brian to do for me. Need to get started on laundry soon. Back to work tomorrow, back is feeling much better. It sounds like I had a slipped disk which was causing all the pressure on my sciatic nerve. Still having pain once in awhile in my right leg but if I get up and change position it eases up.

Brian's counselling session went very well, and he will go back next week. He seemed a little more optimistic about his job and more relaxed so that is good.

Well off to get some work done, I hope all of you enjoy your Sunday.

Kare

Hello my dear spark friends,

A good Saturday- nothing big. We just spent the day doing odd jobs- I loved it, because that means I am crossing "little" things of our list.

Jeanette,

Thinking about you my friend (((HUG)))



Hello to everyone else... I sure hope you are all enjoying your weekend and taking some time to just be.

Denise – SO happy to hear of your settlement!

Tina – I so appreciate your kind words. My life is such a mess and I know it and I really *don’t* spend enough time with my family but I have good intentions.

Ate way too much today at that birthday party. Skipped most of the food and went for the cake. Tomorrow is another day and I will do better. Then DD1 got dropped off at a mall for a bday party and DD2 and I did some shopping and talking.

Hello everyone,

Thank you for your kind support. Today has been good... Aunt Flo is here in full swing. I'm happy to have her so that I can get rid of her sooner. Anyway, moving forward.

Denise,

I am so happy for you girl.... you deserve some good news! You said it perfectly- time to move forward that chapter is closed (what a GREAT feeling).

Lori,

I love reading your posts... you are so busy and so real. Life can be crazy- that's for sure. Yet, you seem to find time to be with your family and do some great activities... good for you. I know taxes are not considered a great activity- but outside of that you do a lot for your family and with your family. I just wanted to recognize that.

Hello to everyone else... I have to get a moving, but I will check in over the weekend.

Much love my friends-
Tina

It’s been an interesting week. Warning: venting about to happen. My thumb hasn’t gotten better and I now realize typing and computer work is making it worse. It seems to be arthritis, but that doesn’t exactly make sense because it gets worse as the day goes on and not better. But boy does it hurt. Now I’m immobilizing it and I hope that helps. And I took so many Advil I burnt my stomach up and now have gastritis (or maybe even an ulcer). It’s taking way longer to do everything so I’m being unproductive and so things are falling apart around me. Ugh.

Today DH and I stayed home and tried to get our taxes done. Actually made good progress but as always there’s ONE thing that’s not clear and so that one thing will take as long as everything else took. Hope I get it figured out soon.

Will blog about something…possibly…just feel the need.

My goal tonight is to go to bed early. I’m just tired and my thumb is throbbing.

Brenda – I’m glad to hear you’re out of the hospital and feeling better.

Diane – love all the cow stories – even the sad ones. My offer still stands to co-aauthor the book with you: “The run ¼ mile, then lift and carry a newborn calf and warm it up diet”. Oh, and enjoy that granddaughter!

Tammy – glad you’re feeling better, a big woo hoo for Jeff, and I hear ya about the alck of job satisfaction. Why not blog us a love story and see if you can write 5 pages a night or something, where you don’t quit your day job but you do nourish your soul. If you prefer send it to us via SparkMail so your copyright is protected (I promise I won’t steal it!).

Jeanette – my condolences to your neighbors

Welcome Cori!

Dawn – you go girl!

Tina – hugs to you…you’re always so kind and generous to all despite all you’ve been dealt.

Hi Gale, Kare, Denise and everyone else.

Happy Friday to all, I have been so ready for it, I think some how Flo got my address and is on her way!

Dawn what a cool way to celebrate your birthday, better start practicing those jumps!

Brenda your weekend sounds like a winner, hope the weather will be also for you two to enjoy it fully.

Diane I love happy calf stories, I am so glad he is healing and the momma is back in the grove. Hope the coffee with DH was tasty. I never knew that about the ambulance services, some of the stories I have heard about conditions that is a great service they have and need.

Kare I am glad you are feeling better. Sorry Brian is having it rough with his job; good thing the hardest part is over (the shock and the office deal) but hopefully he will handle it with grace and the boss will be gone soon.

Tina I had no idea a dog could get those. Glad it was quickly found and is treatable.

Jeanette my vote would be for the both, life stresses and Flo. Bless your gentle heart. Thank goodness Becky was there for the whole family, remind her she did all she could and the best she could and no one could ask any more from her. Is the cancer your father in law was diagnosed with treatable? How are his emotions? Praying for you all.

Tammy I just hate product pushing. I had to do that at a job where it was no even in the description. I am not there now. That is why there are choices, everyone has one, at least so far. I am glad to hear Jeff is doing so good at his weight loss, only two lbs to go and another milestone is hit, that is truly great.

My girl friend was telling me about the new health plan bill and says that 1) they can withdrawl funds from a persons account for the payments without permission. 2) they made provisions to be able to implant micro chips in us which is to contain ONLY our medical records, 3) by the year 1013 a person can be fined for not carrying health insurance which could cost 3000.00 but the insurance may be 5000.00
4) illegal immigrants do not have to have insurance but will be taken care of... This is bologna in the full sense. Yes I cannot afford it but I don't want it the way they are currently doing this. Crazy stuff out there for sure.

My mom said that John will let her carry his insurance until she reaches 65 and can get on the medicare insurance, he is also going to let her get her knee replaced while she is on his tri-care before the divorce takes place, so it sounds like they are going to remain friends, just not married.

I want a DQ m&m blizzard, good thing it is 24 miles away and I only have 1/4th tank of gas! SO not worth it.

Have the best weekend you can (thinking of your words Jeanette).

Gale

Happy Friday! We are back home now and trying to get back into our routines.

Just wanted to post quick and let you all know that I think I have lost my mind! I just signed up for a 'Warrior Challenge' in September. You can google it, I had to! It is a 3 mile course with things like leaping over flames,crawling under barb wire, running thru mud, scaling over a wall! A bunch of neighbors are doing it so I figured WHY NOT! Then I realized they are all in wicked shape, but what better way to keep myself motivated to lose weight and get strong! It's 2 days before my 42nd bday too and I did my first 5k on my last birthday. Kind of like that tradition of doing something I've never done on my bday :).

Back to work. I'll catch up on posts this weekend.

Good morning and Happy Friiiiiiiiiiiiiday!!!!

Went to bed "early" last night well by 10:30 which is early for me....felt a little more rested this morning ....I took tomorrow off...am looking forward to having the weekend off and being able to sleep in...We are thinking about going down to the lake tomorrow and staying there for the weekend....just to get away and relax by a fire sounds pretty good to me!!!!

Jeanette...Ohhhh HUGS to you and your family sooo much to handle but kudos to you for grabbing onto the reality of having each other to cling to and to go through these difficult times together....sometimes in the sorrows and struggles of everyday life we have to step back and be so thankful for having what we have and the ability to embrace everyday for the miracle that it is!!! Hang in there!!!

Dianne....Thanks for the baby update....bet she's just a doll...can't wait to see pics along the way. How's the little calf from yesterday doing???

Tina...I am so glad your dog is going to be ok....what a scare. I agree with you on the loss of a child...my Mom took comfort from other parents too. The pain never goes away for her but she has learned to deal with it and it's been 27 years this coming May.

Kare...Glad your back is improving......that is a shame about Brian...well hopefully he can just get through the counseling and move forward..I'll pray that it gets better.

Tammy....Glad you're feeling better....great job on the loss even if it was because of sickness...glad Jeff is doing good too had to make him feel great to get the compliments!!!

Gale...how'd your quiz go??? I hope the six weeks go by quickly for you. Great job resisting the chocolate!!

Denise....How was Thirsty Thursday???? I hope everything went well with court today. I hate to see the schools being messed with by the government....I think you will be fine!!!! You are a great teacher!!!

Lisa...Well I see by your FB post that you were THRILLED with the snow we woke up to this morning...lol Hope you have a good weekend...we'll be at the lake Saturday if you guys want to join us by the fire!!

Good morning to everyone else checking in...time to jump in the shower....and get my day going!!!

Quote of the day:

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong, because someday in your life, you will have been all of these.

Hugs,
Brenda

Tina - I hope your pup is doing better today.....my dogs are getting older and I can sure tell when they're not at their best...hate to see that. I still get emotional over pets I lost years ago - wondering if I could have done something else.

Our little calf is doing good - took 8 hours but DS got him up and moving..then we put him back with his mom...it took her awhile before she decided she would take him back. But now she's always looking for him. Still have them up in the barn - we did have to tube feed him yesterday and I think that is what saved him. So tricky doing that but it worked this time....so glad the weather is looking warmer!

Weigh in was good this morning...but the weekend is coming...I am determined it's going to be a good one! DH's ready to go for coffee...have a good day everyone!

Jeanette - how awful for Becky....being on the ambulance I know anything dealing with kids is the hardest to deal with. If you let the ambulance know they can help her deal with it...they have what they call a "debriefing" meeting that helps people deal with death in their job..and so sorry to hear about your father in law - having been through it twice now I know the feelings going through you....hugs to you and your family!

That little granddaughter is doing great - hard to believe she is a month old already - gets up maybe twice a night but sleeps pretty good. Starting to smile and make more noises....

Enjoy the sunshine!

Tammy - will be thinking of you this month - I too don't really like Dr's that push one kind of food...treatment is one thing..but toys and food?!
I'm sure your body is still a little lacking in energy....careful of a relapse! Glad to hear Jeff is keeping the weight off.

Thanks for the hug Jeanette, sending you one back.

I am feeling alot better today. I am still lopsided but straighter that I have been all week. The pain isn't constant. I think I am back where I was on Saturday so maybe this is the end of it.

Having a quiet evening. Brian went to counselling for the first time. A patient complained about his bed side manner and he got hauled into the office. Their boss is a real piece of work. Hands him the paperwork stating how people are to be treated with respect etc and then tears him to bits. She brought up an episode that happened 3 years ago with a staff member who got along with no one and gave him a written warning. So he has to get some help with communication skills. He isn't a very open person but I know he is a good nurse, people tell all the time how good he was with them or a family member. I hope it works out for him, he has really been stressing about it and thinking of having to find a new job. I say let's just see how things go, his boss retires at the end of April.

Well, heading for bed soon. Have a nice night.

Kare

Hello my friends,


I had a pretty up and down 24 hours... our black lab was not doing very good. I was so worried about her. I was having a Duke flash back.... one day she is walking with us and enjoying herself and then a day later she is hanging her head and breathing hard while shaking (signs of pain to me). Anyway, we got her right into the Vet and she has a urinary tract infection.... whohooooooo.... I'll take it. I'm so glad they found something and are able to treat it. Anyway, it brought up a lot of emotion (I really felt the loss of Duke). She is doing much better tonight (antibiotics and pain meds).

Oh: Aunt Flo officially arrived... dang... I thought she was going to stand on the front door forever. When she hangs around like that- I want to eat.... so I would rather she move in than peak in my front door.

Jeanette,

Sad....so sad.... I can't even imagine. My heart and prayers go out to his mama and daddy.... and to you and your family. (((HUG)))) there are simply no words.... It hurts.... my saving grace was talking to parents whom had lost their child... they were proof that I wasn't going to die from the pain of losing a child (God... it feels like your Soul is being ripped out of you and you just want it to stop, yet there is nothing that takes the pain away). Anyway, I think I have given this grief support group information out before, but it's worth giving again.... It's a online support group and it's free and it saved me and brought me through one of the most difficult times in my life.... www.beyondindigo.com. It' took me about four to six months before I was able to even think about reaching out, but I eventually sought help and found that group. Much love....

Hey girls..

Denise...sending good thoughts and prayers your way. Hope everything works out in your favor!!! I hear ya on the stressful time, I am about maxed out, I feel myself just going thru the motions and not feeling alot of anything except tired and stressed!Hang in there...it will pass!!!Right???

Dianne...glad to hear you are safe from the floods for now. Much better here this year also. River really high and spilling out of the banks but we will wait and see what the early summer rains bring!!!Hope your baby is all snuggly and warm by now! Speaking of babies how is your new little grandaughter???

Tammy...You guys are doing great, hope this gives Jeff the boost he needs which in return makes you happier and healthier!!!(((HUGS))) Glad things are looking up for ya!

Brenda...Hope you are letting your body set the pace! I know you are motivated but don't push too hard. I did giggle when you did your laps at the hospital!!!You are awesome!!!

Tina...I know your weigh in will be sucessful!!!I am sending you positive energy and strength to resist those temptations this last week of March!!!Can't wait to do the happy dance for you!!!

Nettie...Are you okay???Feeling better???

Sherry...How are you doing today???

Kare...Is the back giving you any relief today???
Hope so, thinking of you!!!I'd send ya a big hug but that might hurt you!lol

Going to take a hot shower then off to bed, early again tonight. My emotions just seem to be getting the best of me. Could be Aunt Flo or just life stress this month.
I have a sad thing to tell you guys...Will (ds) and Becky live next to a really sweet couple with a little boy who has been confined to a wheel chair his whole short little life (10). He passed away last week (while we were gone of course) Poor Beck did CPR on him until the paramedics arrived but he was already gone. She is really taking it hard and I feel so bad I wasn't here to help her through it......then if that weren't enough my father in law was diagnosed with cancer this past week. Of course once again we were half way across the country! So much for timing being right as I thought.... the up side is the sun was shining today and my 3 children, my self and husband are alive, healthy, and able to feel all this crazy emotion!!!

I hope each of you have a wonderful Friday...filled with as much happy emotion as you each can stand!!!
love you guys!
Jeanette

Hey Girls!

Just woke up from a little nap. After doing 1 mile with Leslie and running up and down the stairs with some house work, I was a little pooped out for some reason. I just sat down for a second and was out like a light! I woke up this morning around 5am and kept bolting awake every 15-30minutes. I think my body just wasn't well rested hence the nap. I feel pretty good at the moment!

Slowly but surely I am working back up to my longer routines and it feels great! So far with the last weigh in 6 pounds are staying off from the total 16 I lost being sick. I was sooooo dehydrated during that time..whew! I knew as soon as I could eat anything my true weight loss would show up and I am thrilled with the six pounds.

Jeff is still down 20 of the 25 he lost and when he stopped in to his old Costco he got all sorts of compliments. I think that put a spark into him. Lets see how he does the next month. I'm excited for him! It's like the Biggest Loser: he is 2 pounds away from leaving the 300's. Whoohoo!

At our doctor meeting we pretty much got chewed out for having low numbers. I'm really becoming disillusioned with my profession as a whole. I understand that we are a business, but we are also in the business to offer the best medical care we can provide. Our "higher ups" what us to push everything from toys to foods and it bothers me. I have no problem recommending blood work, fecals, xrays etc when it will benefit the animal and their health, but when they tell me I need to push one brand of food over another with the pretense that it is the best food out there....I'm not buying it. I'll let you all know how the battle over all of that goes next month when our regional VP comes in to try to explain to me why we as a company switched back to this current food company over the last one that we had. Hint: it's all politics when you come right down to it.

I so want to switch professions! I started dusting off my novels that I have been plugging on for the last few years and the current ideas I have been playing around with like the Common Sense isn't so common sort of thing. I love writing romance novels and the love scenes...LOL! Who knows where that will all lead, but its fun writing them!

Oh I am babbling now. I am off to plug away at the laundry and empty the dishwasher. Take care all!

Just a quick check in, got my workout in and my calories are just about right, portion controled all day long, even when the chocolate parked right in front of my hands!!!

Denise, Thinking excellent thoughts about the court day, hope all gets in the line you need it to.

Diane, wow what a rush and work out, that was a quick response towards the lil guy in need, sure hope he makes it, keep us posted.

Tina I have a feeling you will be seeing more than a 2 lbs loss for the whole month at the rate you have been going.

Off to school and my quiz. six more weeks, six more weeks!

You've got to say, I think that if I keep working at this and want it badly enough I can have it. It's called perseverance.

Just had to let everyone know I got my morning run in! Guys are gone so I'm on calf duty - went out to the pasture to check cows and noticed a new one right away - only thing is the poor thing was barely moving! It's 16 out with 4 wind chill - so I tried calling DS who was still home but he wouldn't answer - called the hired hand but he was just leaving home (25 mintes away) so I RAN 1/4 up to the house to get DS and the pickup (whew!) ran to open gates for DS to drive through...out to the calf, loaded him (it's a bull) and got him up to the barn to warm up. He was lifting his head by the time we left the barn so I think he will be ok...going to take the blow dryer out there to help him along, felt his ears and I think they are ok (that's the first thing we check for - frozen ears). Whew, my blood is pumping! Coffee time!

Good morning everyone! wow, chilly one here! This past week it's been in the 30's when I've gotten up and now it's 18...but next week it looking really good - they are saying 60's and maybe 70's!

Jeanette - there is a threat of flooding in some areas - nothing like last year - school kids are getting out to sandbag (instead of gym class) but right now there is no rush. I guess up north hasn't started moving yet so who knows how much water we will get. But three times better than last year. And we've only lost 3 calfs (counting the cows)...oh, the cow that had twins that I told you guys about - she also died...so maybe there was something wrong with her.

Hello everyone,

Great workout today... we had such beautiful weather. I think we are in store for some cloudy days... but the weather should still be warm.

I'm gearing up for my weigh-in at the end of this month. I am hoping for at least 2 pounds.... I have had a couple of rough days with calories.... but I feel pretty good about my choices overall.

Brenda,

I'm so glad that your doing better. (((HUG))) we missed our girl.

Dianne,

Yummy.... that's all I have to say...

Sherry,

Knee problems are a drag... I guess you have to find exercises that are low impact (I know you know that). Anyway, your doing really good....

Lisa,

Hope your all doing better.

Kare,

The back is such a powerful pain... I totally pray that it gets better for you girl.

Denise,

Hello my friend.

Welcome Cori... just jump right in and be part of this great group of women. We have been at it for a long time and our friendships are real.... we welcome you and look forward to sharing a journey with you too.

Robbie,

I wanted to say hi to you before, yet somehow didn't. So... hello and I am glad that the flowers are heading your way too... there is nothing like spring for energy.

Jeanette,

Oh... how nice is that... I knew you would be in the heat of summer before you knew it. Was this winter a "little" shorter than last year? I know mine was, but I think we all agree that last year was way longer.

Good Wednesday all, managed to get some homework done, a work out in, and chatted with several family members before my babies came home from school. Love days like this that are not rushed or crazy.

Tammy, those 1 mile walks with Leslie are still a great workout but gentle enough to ease you back into your routine. Sounds like you got lots done with your DH.

Lisa, Glad you like Bre's beau! Heal soon!

Sherry, Sorry to hear about your knees, would an ace bandage help you out any? Your craving sounded like it was fairly under control to me, I would have hit the twinkies myself.

Kare, hope today went much better for you and that you got to do some moving, back pain really does a person in and you have to find a way to compensate.

Brenda faithful walker, glad you are keeping it light.

Jeanette I love yard work but we have steady rain for the next 2 days and with the past 8 inches of snow from Saturday, it is a mud puddle indeed for us. I would love to be in bed pre-eight, soon though! You must have really been worn out.

Cori, welcome and glad to have you come aboard! Lots of interesting folks with hearts of gold on this site, I am sure you will fit right in in no time.

Robbie, was it the salt in the sauce? Hope your swelling goes down and you feel better. Mom already has plans for a garage sale so I guess that is good.

Need to get the kiddo's off to Pioneer clubs, they love all the fun and the mixture of other kids from other schools that attend. I am glad there is somewhere for them to go and run off all this energy besides my house during the wet weather!

Morning....
Back to work this morning, just wanted to pop in quickly. Got home yesterday afternoon, was 60 degrees so we did some serious yard work. Got the lawn sweep out, got that process started, one flowerbed cleaned and burned. Yeah Spring is here!!! We went to bed at 7:45 and just woke at 7. we were exhausted I guess!

Brenda...My heart jumped when I read you were in the hospital. My goodness how frightening!!!I am so happy to hear you are now home!!!((((((HUG))))))

Tammy...Good to hear you are up and moving and have beat the crud!!! Great job on the additional weight loss!Woohoo!

Gale...Sad news about your momma. Hope she and your step dad find a comfortable balance. Take care of yourself, that can be a stressful situation for you and family!

Tina...Think all your Springtime, sunny thoughts have helped!!!I was overjoyed to get home and see no snow and the yard dry enought to rake and not squish when you walked.

Dianne..Hope you get good results! Flooding still a threat there? I keep hearing bits and pieces about the Red River.

Denise....stop beating yourself up, think about what you did accomplish this month. I bet there is some good stuff! We miss you when you aren't here!

Well I need to scoot and get everything tracked down that I will need for the day. That nasty Aunt Flo jumped in while we were stopped at a stoplight somewhere in Tenneessee. She be movin' on soon, she was headin' West but you know how sneaky she is. There may be a detour in the plans!!!lol

Love you guys, have an awesome day!

Don;t beat yourself up too badly Sherry, we all have days like that, at least they were more healthy snacks than junk. I caved last night and ate a small bowl of rippled chips. The cravings of Aunt Flo and the lack of being able to move, got to me. We'll both do better today.

Not as sore this morning and I got a little more rest, but I'll try to do something and my back will say "no way". I haven't been drnking my water either as it was just too hard to move to the bathroom and I can feel it today. Feet and fingers are huge, so I will up my intake today.

Going to get Dwayne up and ready and Brian will take him to the bus for me. I'll have to get him off tonight but I have all day to work up to that.It's not that it's a long walk it just hurts to have him hang onto me for guidance. Not a litle boy anymore and he rocks back and forth will he walks and it tugs on me.

Hope all you ladies have a wonderful spring day and don't wake up to snow like I did. Happy Spring! emoticon

Gale, Congrats on the workout stretch you are on! That is great! I didn't workout this morning because my knee gave me a lot of grief yesterday.

My other problem is that I caved at 10:15 last night...first I steamed some veggies which made me even MORE hungry, then I ate crackers and cheese. I should have logged onto SP or gone to bed :-(

Sherry :-)

Aim for the moon, if you miss, you will land among the stars!

Goal #1: Loose 5 pounds. Reward will be dinner with my girlfriends at El Cerro.

Goal #2: Loose 10 pounds so size 10 jeans fit loose.
Goal #3 Loose 15 pounds and keep it off!

Lisa, Sure hope you are able to kick the cold really fast. How annoying!

Tammy, I still enjoy BL very much...and I am watching Parenthood even though it isn't what I thought it was going to be...the previews (before it started) made it look like a comedy, but it's really just another night-time soap opera. Congrats on getting to move you ticker down again!!!

Quick check in: did really well today out with Jeff running errands. We got the pants he needed and he helped out with the grocery shopping. I got in a 1 mile Leslie walk today in addition to the errand walking. Good start after being sick. I had my weigh in today and an additional two pounds are off. Oh, I have to change my ticker! Whoohoo!

I'm off for some tv time with Jeff. Parenthood is on now. Biggest Loser was great! Jeff is starting to watch it with me and he's taken an interest in the people. His faves are Sam and Koli too!

Brenda you dedicated walkaholic, and our hero, so glad you are feeling better and they did not find anything abnormal.

Diane, glad to hear your flowers are coming up.

Tammy excellent on the weight loss, you are continuing to be a positive example, glad you are feeling better too.

Denise, hang in there girl, I have been MIA on here many times but still feel so connected to such wonderful folks. The support is always there no matter how small the goal or how big the challenge.

I have a work out streak of one whole week, and each one has been over 35 minutes~~~ I know, but it is a start and I have the summer in mind and focused on my behind!

My step dad already has plans to move all of his things out this week, mom is some what relieved because she claims she will not have to walk on egg shells anymore. At least they are working together and being amicable (friendly?) with this separation. Bad thing is that they signed up for several things that required contracts and both will have to take something over and with both having set incomes (retired)this may prove to be difficult.

Have really great Wednesdays everyone. Hi also to Cori, Nettie, Jeanette, Tina, Jae, Kare, June, Lisa, and anyone I've missed.

Aim for the moon, if you miss, you will land among the stars!

Goal #1: Loose 5 pounds. Reward will be dinner with my girlfriends at El Cerro.

Goal #2: Loose 10 pounds so size 10 jeans fit loose.
Goal #3 Loose 15 pounds and keep it off!

Dianne-hope your news is good also...will be thinking of you.

thanks Tammy-for the warm thoughts...I am back to walking:)

Kare--hope you are feeling better--take it easy the rest of the week (hug)

sending lotsa good wishes to all my other girls out there...I hope to be checking in and catching up w/all of you:) thinking of you (HUGS)

bad news is my laptop is out of commission for 2-3 weeks--unbelieveable, but there was a defective part in it and it wouldn't turn on....very bummed, but w/ 3 others in the house I should be able to check in often--but still not the same..

take care my friends!

Denise
You've got to say, I think that if I keep working at this and want it badly enough I can have it. It's called perseverance.
