Today seems calm. I have some sewing work, but it will be minimal.

Yesterday I reorganized my closet, and took out some of the things that are so big as to be ridiculous. Kept the things that were too small, hoping to fit into them some day. But the biggest surprise was when I put all my clothes together by types and colors. Turns out I have over 100 tops!.

Didn't look like that much when they were sorted with bottoms. I must have over 10 mostly red ones, and the white/black combinations are plenty, also. When each pair of pants had two or three shirts with them, it didn't seem like there were that many. Now that each top is on it's own hanger, I think I have to stop buying them just because I think I might have a match for it!

4lbs is great Vicki! Looks like a nice weekend and very busy here. Getting ready for a visit from my friend beginning on Thursday. Every day this week is busy with appointments until Kathy arrives Thursday and then the fun begins! Mani-pedi for both that afternoon, Friday we're shopping in G'boro and Burlington and leaving Saturday for options. My DD will join us on Friday! So looking forward to this!

Waited for Larry to wake up. That last hour in bed just waiting is horrible. I toss and turn the whole time, and he just las there snoring!

But he's up ow, so we're about to eat.

Think I'm starting to lose weight again. Not much, just 4 pounds, but it's a start!

Larry got MANY shots in his back muscles yesterday to see if that will help with his pain. It does seem to be better today, so there is hope.

All week I've been thinking it was a different day. (Monday was Tuesday, Wednesday was Thursday, etc.) I missed my 8 PM Services twice because I thought they were different times as a result of the day! Turns out once wasn't even my fault. It was wrong in the weekly notice! At least that was a mind booster.)

Felt good yesterday and was able to get a lot done outside. The only after effect now of the shot is the swollen red circle on my arm and it itches so I think this is a good sign it will be normal soon. Hope all goes well with your plans for the shrubs and outdoor landscaping. Will be doing more of that today too.

I'll be glad when I get my second dose of the vaccine. I go on the 27th. I barely had any soreness after the first dose. I hope the second doesn't make up for it.

We planted our garden last weekend. We still have to tear out a big holly bush in the front of the house and replace it with an azalea, but the veggie garden is done. DH likes the 3 small hollies, but I'd like something else there. We also have 3 small boxwood bushes in front of the hollies. The builder put them in. I would love some color. I'm waiting to see if my crepe myrtle comes back this year. We planted it last year, but it looks kind of sad right now.

Not feeling good this morning with headache, back and other joints hurting and my arm is swollen. Guess this is maybe from the second Covid shot taken yesterday.

Made it through another day at work and the knee feels some better, continuing to ice and heat to get swelling down. My exercise is low impact or nothing. So far meeting some goals.

It's short sleeves weather here. It really hasn't been that in a long time. Can't wait for the pool to be open, but that won't happen until May, and we have to go to NY for my youngest grandchild's Bar Mitzvah, so we may wait until we get back, which will drive me crazy when it will be so nice before then.

Hope your son takes full advantage of what he can with his education. (I should be the one to talk. I was the only one in my entire family, including cousin and sisters kids, and grandchildren, etc. not to graduate from college! I cut my education short, but my life turned out wonderful anyway.)

Not only did we fid the "special" food we needed for Passover, we went back there for other foods that we can't get here. It's an hour's drive, but it's worth it for those "rare" things. (That are normal in most big cities!) The Wegman's in Chapel Hill is probably twice the size as our biggest Harris Teeter here.

It is spring break and the kids are keeping me on my toes! Lots of stuff going on. DS17 is at Ocean Isle with friends today. I had my first dose of the vaccine today too. Tomorrow morning is a zoom call with the community college counselor to see about DS17 taking some of his classes there to qualify for free college. If he takes 4 classes, he earns 2 free years of community college. He didn't take advantage of it this year, so he has to take 4 classes his senior year. That's what we'll be trying to figure out. After that, I'm off for a pedicure with my MIL.

It's a beautiful day. We ran out early to shop as we have "hamburger Tuesday" with our friends. (See Popeye's history for the back-story.) I have a zoom knitting meeting at 1, and then I think we're going to try to go to look for some foods that aren't available in our neighborhood. We're trying to find out if they still have them in stock, but it's in Chapel Hill (an hour's drive away) and don't want to make it unless they have it.

Would you believe another Costco day? That's 5 this week. More than usual. But crazier than ever. It's only 8 PM and already I've gone over 6000 steps, which is more than TWICE my goal of 3000.

I zoomed Friday night Services, and Larry fell asleep in the middle of it He's actually in bed, and probably for the night! I guess no dinner tonight. .

Thanks, it's been busy with Dental visits. Dentist, Endodontist, Orthodontist. Fortunately, no more holiday stuff until Sunday. But the eating restrictions apply till then. No bread (which I don't eat anyway) or other starches. I'm not eating the Matzah either, as that's carb also.

Last night we had a zoom meeting with my sister and her three kids and two of my three daughters. (The religious one in Israel obviously couldn't join as it was Holiday.)

Holiday for a whole week now: nothing will change until next weekend! I'll be gaining weight because almost everything for Passover is fattening! I try not to eat matzah, but last night it was required! We'll see how much I can do without for the rest of the week. A lot of things are so restrictive there are no substitutes!.

Well, I feel better about the closet. Since I put all that "small stuff" out of sight, I hung up all the "big" clothes by sets (matching pants to tops) and was able to just grab one hanger for my outfit, instead of grabbing the pants from the floor and trying to find a top to match.

Still not happy that I had to do it though!

Larry promised to try to give me smaller portions, so I should be able to lose some of it again. I never take anything extra to eat, not even snacks during the day. And still, the weight gain happened and is not reversing itself. Must be something I'm doing wrong, (Llike not swimming!) I can't wait for that to start. But it will be at least 2 months. Maybe 3 if we don't open it until after the Bar Mitzvah in NY..

emoticon Vicki! I'm right there with you. Being laid up with Covid, I put 7 pounds back on since I haven't been back to the fitness center or taking longer walks. I still have a headache every day and get short of breath whenever I do anything slightly strenuous.

It's cloudy but a little warmer today. A good day to open up the windows. Unfortunately, there is construction going on (clearing the land and getting the infrastructure in place) just across the road a bit and the noise and beeping of the large backhoe, dump trucks, and other loud construction vehicles is very annoying. They took out the walking path (old cart paths from when it was a golf course) to make way for the new road and houses. Not thrilled with that, but at least they will put a sidewalk in whenever they get to that stage. And there is still some of the paths to walk, just our favorite is gone.

I hope you all get some sunshine today!

It was. But today was discouraging.

We made a trip to Costco, and when I came home I cleaned our my closet (unfortunately of all the things that are too tight on me now) AND TOOK OUT ALL THE THINGS I HAD ALREAD PUT AWAY BECAUSE I HAD GOTTEN INTO A SMALLER SIZE! Very discouraging. I had lost 75 pounds, but put back about 20. I'm determined to lose those 20 again!

Never let success go to your head, and never let failure go to your heart.

Make time, or make excuses. The choice is yours.

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.

It was wonderful. They're always there when we need them. And he's a handyman's handyman. When he and Larry get together to fix something, it gets done, no matter how convoluted it may be. That's why we wanted to thank them with this birthday dinner!

(We usually take them out, but we're still playing it close to the chest and not eating in restaurants yet. But we put flowers on the table, fancy tablecloth, etc. and food from our favorite restaurant)

Sounds like a wonderful evening Vicki! My day was volunteering as usual and the afternoon at home was preparing flowers for both my mom and dad's and my in laws for Easter. Got two saddles ready and will prepare the inserts for the vases today or tomorrow. Working the part time job today and tomorrow for 3 hrs. each day. My life seems pretty full this week.

Will try to catch my NYC daughter. It's her birthday, but it's so hard to get her on the phone. She "sees" her patients (she's a psychologist) during the day and into the night, as she supervises her 2 kids in their tele-schooling. (6th grade and HS).

Thanks, it was a rough one. It was very windy, and very hard to hear what was going on there.

It's a sad story, but I did hear her daughter (trying to keep it civil) thank her father for (finally) paying for the funeral. (He tried not to but his Rabbi convinced him it was the proper thing to do!) I will wait till this evening to talk to her daughter.

Looks like all of NC will be under weather watch today. I plan to stay home and monitor what is going on especially this afternoon. Take care all!
