Morning all!
I woke up in the middle of the night last night for about an hour - at least I finished my book, but now I'm tired!
Maybe just circuit class today - spin class won't care if I miss!

Good morning! WoooooHoooo! It is Friday! I skipped Curves this a.m. but DH works tomorrow a.m. and I will be @ Curves just after they open @ 7a.m.! It was payday and I worked on finances.
Wish I was staying home today but I got to work till I inherit millions or win the lottery, whichever comes first!

Just popping in to say hi! Mema is tired but having a great time with the kiddos and had a nice day shopping at the ultra high end Dallas mall yesterday while the nanny was there. Oh my, some of those stores are just beautiful to look at!! First night the baby was up a couple of times but last night she slept from 7 pm to 5 am!!
I am home for a few hours to work in my office, then pick up DGS 10 and the class tree frog at 3:00, take them to his house, then back to my babysitting duties until the parent's get home tonight.

My rules: Drink wine whenever you want once you pass 60
Eat whatever you want once you past 70.
Do whatsoever you want to do, drink, eat, say after you pass 80
If you pass 90, you get a free pass to live to 100!!

Welcome back Shon!

Good afternoon everyone...

Busy with my guest Connie this morning..Went to exercise, she took me to lunch, then went back to the conference..She will be out this evening, so she is pretty easy to care for..LOL..Just so she doesn't get lost tonight getting to my house from downtown..

Buffy: Mema and Mary Kay both need some sleep tonight..I love your RULES.

Marie: Working does get in the way of fun, doesn't it?

I do love your picture, MKay..

How is Sandy doing today???

Hi ShonMarie...don't be a stranger.

Welcome back Shon!!! It's really nice to see you posting again.

I love those rules too! So much I believe I'll adopt them as of today. Lol.

I did make it to the gym and walked today. And picked up my car. $1200 worth!! Ugh!

Dreary and rainy here...maybe...
I hope to make it to Curves this a.m. after I take some $$ to DH at his work. Then just the regular weekend activities here...playing catchup around the house from the week at work....Looks like we are buying one of my son's cars Monday. That was part of the drama....with his ex gf....he is keeping and paying on his 2009 toyota matrix and we are taking off his hands the 2008 honda civic. It will be nice to have a 3rd car and DH can leave his old jeep grand parked. He will use that to pull the boat when he goes fishing...
Oh, well, off to get that $$...anyone else want some?

It looks a little bit dreary here, too..Probably will have some rain..

Going to a Beth Moore simulcast at church..It's an all day thing..sitting, etc..lunch, too.
I made some SF bars for the diabetics..No one thinks of the the diabetics at church, do they???

Marie: I love having 3 cars..Well, one is the farm pickup for emergencies and the other are our regular Camrys..one is a 93 and mine is a 2001..But, they keep on ticking.

Shon: Landscape peeps.. and no cooking on Sunday is a good thing.

Akk..I was 148 this morning..Too many "foods" yesterday.

Check in later..

Carolyn: I had too many foods yesterday and some weren't the right kind of foods I should have. :blush:
Made it to Curves and got it out of the way....got a flyer from Weight Watchers last week saying they sure were missing me.....but I really think they were missing my $$ more than me....I actually thought of joining....but decided I needed to quit yo-yoing back and forth between woe's....and though I do miss carby stuff...I am happier eating full fat, more natural foods. Also, I tend to fill up on garbage with points...but WW does work for some people so not bashing it...just not for me. Going to fry a couple eggs (OH) for breakfast and have them with a little salsa.

I am! I am enjoying it and not as worried about the scale..but wanting to do something health-wise for me and long term (rest of my life). This woe seems a good fit...and I do, once every week or two, have a splurge day....it helps me stay on the path the rest of the time...

So, waiting to hear from my youngest daughter down your way MK! She leaves for England in Oct for her student teaching...just checking with her on what she has ready (paperwork wise) and what she needs to do still. Right now she is doing her clinicals at a school in Peoria. She will be a wonderful teacher and I am so proud of her!

I know what you mean, Marie. I found that I cannot do the splurge day like I used to though - just gets me into trouble. I also have found that I cannot deviate to far from 30 carbs a day and definitely need to keep my numbers in line. It's worked for the last several months, and I feel so much better on so many levels! I guess as we get older, our bodies just don't want to do what they did when we were younger!

Ok, they're almost done with the mulch and my oh my, what a "fragrance" it is!!!!!!!!!!! Does look nice, though.

I think many of us have done WWers..and lost weight, but I couldn't sustain the loss because there were too many carbs involved for me..and I can't do carbs..But, I can do fat and I would rather eat fat than carbs..LOL.

I was very good at our luncheon at church..The men made baked taters with toppings..
So, I had chili, cheese, sour cream and veggies..I was full, too..

Marie: How fun for your dd to student teach in England..Yes, there is alot of paperwork involved any more, I think..Just make sure she gets all the papers she needs..One of my friend's daughter waited until the last minute and it was a mess..

Quite rainy here today. We went to the market this a.m. and then to a movie. Date Night, I was disappointed. I don't know who's in charge of making funny movies nowadays but somebody needs to tell them they're NOT funny.

Dinner with my dad and sister and her DH tonight. Not looking too forward to that but I'm trying to have a good attitude. Ugh.

Yes, Sandy - Wine has helped me through a lot of rough times!

Marie - that's so wonderful! She'll love it! What is she teaching?

Good job on the fat Carolyn! Doesn't that sound funny!

Shon - yeah - that can be pretty pungent can't it! Ewwww!

Lol on the kitteh pic, lol. I drank water; it keeps my tongue from getting too loose, lol. And we had a pleasant enough time. We declined to go back to Dad's to visit longer though which I feel was a wise decision. Baby steps, ha ha. It's sure a long process for me getting rid of the resentment and bitterness I hold for her but I'm really trying. With the Lord's help I'm hopeful that I'll be able to finally let it go completely.
Thanks for the support.
