I'm getting a few things in order and preparing to drive to Conroe tomorrow, take my mother to a doctor's appointment and bring her back with me. I haven't done over 6 hrs of driving in one day in a while. Here's hoping my back/hip/body don't object too much.

We have several places to go to take care of business while she's here, then I do the whole thing over again to get her home.

I may be back on the computer by Thursday, but by Friday for sure.

I fear for my losing streak! It's hard to travel, be away from home, and stay within my plan. I've created my own comfortable environment that supports my healthy eating. Changing it may change my weight loss. We'll see.

Hope you all have a successful week!

Have decided to go through my wardrobe today, i have lots of clothes that i never wear,some of them still with labels on.
When i was working i used to be so extravagant with clothes,even buying things a size too small so i could slim into them,anyway everything that i have not worn in the last 12 months is going to go.Anything decent i will give to charity shops.

I knew she lived close to you, but didn't know it was actually in the same town.

It's too bad that Belton, Texas and Belton, Missouri are so far apart. We could be the Three Musketeers, lol.

Karen did you know that Buncolady lives in Belton too?

I colored my hair today, I have colored it for years. It really is white naturally. I washed all the bed clothes and remade the beds. Did some dusting. Than went to the gym for my hour workout, mostly on the treadmill. My legs are so tired now.
Cooked dinner, and cleaned up the kitchen.
Then I have spent the last 2 hrs Sparking. emoticon

Picking up my new prescription sunglasses. Stopping in a furniture store near the vision place because they are having a sale on upholstered chairs and I'm looking for a comfy one for the guest room, which is also my library. I need a chair and a lamp between the bed and the wall of bookshelves.

I think I'm also going back to the Verandah, the really nice place I found for Mother. It takes some getting into this stuff to even know what questions to ask.

I also have another place I want to look at in a nearby town about 15 miles from me. It's in BELTON, Irene, lol. I may try to get her on the waiting list in both places. Just in case.

I went shopping this morning. Then this evening I went to WW to weigh in. When I got there...there was no leader or any of the ladies to weigh people in. No scales or anything....Just about 30 people waiting for the leader....who never showed up. We haven't had a meeting since Dec. 17. Our meetings are on Thursday...No meeting on ....Thanksgiving. Christmas Eve, New Years Eve, the Snow Blizzard. Now this. One lady called the WW hot line on her cell phone and no one there new anything about it.

When I got home I weights myself and I was down .6 of a pound from Dec. 17.

I'm going out today to look for a spa sounds machine, a sound machine, something that plays ocean waves, waterfalls, etc. all night long.

My massage therapist has one and it really gets me relaxed. Of course the massage helps, lol.

During the summer, actually, here in Texas that's 3/4's of the year, I sleep with fans. Ceiling fan and pedastal fan. I grew up sleeping with a fan and the noise of it lulls me to sleep. Jan, Feb, March is just a little too cool to turn the fans on, even though I've done that and pointed it at the wall, lol.

So, I'm looking for some soothing background hum to keep me snoozing through the night.

Does anyone already use one of these?

Errands this morning, including library, then massage this afternoon and dinner with the Girlfriend Group tonight, stopping by Joe's house afterward, on the way home.

Yesterday I spent most of my time on the web and phone tracking down senior apartment communities for my mother. I drove to one in the next town, about 25 min. away, to pick up an application.

It's a nice place in a quiet neighborhood, but has no functions, events, gatherings, for the residents. They are completely on their own there. I don't think my mother would like it. The search goes on.

Have a great trip, Judi. So sorry about your sister having to go through this, but really glad that you will be with her for support.

Today is another work day and will be leaving for the office shortly. No special plans for today. Do plan to head to Arkansas tomorrow just for the day to visit with family.

I'm going to Florida tomorrow. I will visit with my sister, who already asked me what foods I need to have, for 1 week. (She is undergoing Chemo). Then I will pick up a cruise for 1 week with a cousin. Then the 3rd week, a friend from Michigan will come and meet me and we will hang out for 8 more days. I'll be gone the rest of January! It will be great for me to walk outdoors and swim! But mostly, I'm looking forward to having the week with my sister. It is her treatment week, and I am going to be there with her for that. We are very close, and although I don't want her to have to go through this, I really want to be there and share even the bad times with her.
So you all have a wonderful month. I will exercise on my vacation. I have packed my pedometer, water bottle and work out clothes and plan to use them!

I am doing my exercises at home today. It is too cold and too windy to venture out of the house. I did the Boot Camp exercise this morning.

I am making a pot of chicken soup for dinner.

Be careful every one and try to stay warm.

AmVets are supposed to be coming today, so I put all my very good used clutter items, books, etc on my front porch to be picked up today. With the snow, I am not sure if they are coming, but I got in some exercise lifting and carrying it all to the porch. Hopefully I won't have to carry it all back in. If not, I will be adding to it for the next time they come. I have enough holiday decorations for several homes, and since I am putting out less and less each year, I have been filtering out my favorites, discarding some, and putting the rest in my give it away pile.

Karen that sounds so good. I didn't cook for the Holidays so I don't have that good turkey carcus to make soup. I really miss it.
I went to our lake property yesterday for fire wood. So today I am doing my laundry and vacuuming my carpets. And trying to stay warm.

I'm making soup from the Thanksgiving turkey breast carcass. My soup has almost no meat in it. I prefer mostly broth. I do love cabbage and onions and maybe some mushrooms in it.

Great for really cold weather. High in comfort, low in calories.

Karen, I'm thinking I paid 11.99 for "The Spark". emoticon plus postage. I got an E-mail from Amazon.com that I have a $2.32 refund or credit because the price went down. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I went to Church, emoticon then to the gym for my 45 min workout, emoticon then to Price Chopper for some Lean cuisine's at 50% off, then home to watch The Kansas City Chiefs WIN the football game emoticon over the Denver Broncos, 34 to 24. emoticon . Now I am catching up on my Spark mail and then I will read another chapter in "The Spark". emoticon I really love it.
