No work to, did 30 squats and wing exercise. Hope it works so I can look better in sleeveless tops this summer. Couldn't make it to 35 my upper legs are killings me.

Cheryl yes I using weight for my bat wings. I use one 5 lb weight, I hold it with both hands and then raise it over my head and drop it down over my back and then bounce for a count of five and then back again. Wow it never seems to end with your Moms house. I hope they get things straigtened out. Sounds like there right on the ball with helping. Seems like the electic co. would be liable for the power surge. But the important thing is that she's feeling so much better and I'm sure after time that she'll start feeling like it's finally her home. I's got to be hard after having her other home for so long.

Rena nice business for your daughter to start. Everyone buys such cute baby things now. Not like when my boys were born. Just plan clothes. Hope you don't all get the flu, alot are getting it around here too. I'm trying to stay away from the sickies.

The electric company came out and think the electricians hooked up the generator wrong. They getting with the builder and electrician to go over it. Her washer doesn't work either. And the lid is on lock so she can't get her wet clothes outher alarm system is out. Makes me wonder what else. Got me to wondering about her smoke alarms too. When the microwave was billowing smoke no alarms went off.

Got to lake and the heat was out. Brr. He managed to get it going but we will need to buy a new motor. Doesn't look like any of the pipes froze so far so maybe it just happened today.

I'm little Miss Sunshine

Karen I'm a little behide on the amount of squats per day too. My legs are so weak that they really hurt. But I'm doing some everyday. My leg have alway been week even though I walk alot.

Cheryl hope they get things done and that they pay for all the damage. That really sounds dangerous for Mom. Must be a whole electical problem through the whole house. SS about the clothes in the washer. I remember when my lid got stuck for a week before I could get some over to fix it. Some of my clothes where moldy but they all smelt like so washed them with a box of baking soda and the ones that weren't stain were ok. Yikes not heat you were lucky that the pipes didn't freeze. Do you have a neighbor that can check on your house when your not there. We all check friends homes because so don't live there all winter.

Karen I would think taking care of gs would be a workout

Misty I hope her clothes don't mold. She hasn't replaced that many since the tornado. Maybe we need to run by and see if DH can get it open.

We got the heat back last nite, lost it during the night, got it back this afternnon we have a couple full trimmers near. One next door lets us use their dock. We just hate to impose. But we may have to.

No squats yet. I've been huddled under a blanket

Cheryl glad the heat is back on. Do you have a fireplace or woodburning stove for back up? We got a pellet stove a few years back and I love it. How long you staying at the lake house? Going to chinese tonight so here comes the bloat for tomorrow, get me everytime, that why I don't go that often but friends picked out the place to eat this time.

Nah, GS is pretty easy. I cook, and he plays in the cupboards
But then I end up feeding DH, DD19, DD23 and GS. So much for taking it easy when I get back from office. Did 3 loads laundry and ran dishwasher, too......................and they were at the gym

We have been having heat issues too. Thank goodness it isn't too cold here...

Back home. Couldn't keep the heat going. DH is going back with space heaters and he will stay until the parts to fix it come in.

No work this week and it feels greatStill have to house checks for my clients that left for the year. So I'll do it on Wednesday and then go shopping and lunch with the girls. Did 35 squats, got to work my self up, but my legs were hurting so bad. Anyone else have sore legs

Cheryl ss no heat. Hope the parts come in so you can go back up this weekend.

Lizzie My DDs birthday was yesterday too. Can't wait to see the pics of the finished product. You do such good work. Hope you feel better today.

Karen I'm sure your real busy being that tax season is starting up again. Sounds like you got as much exercise as they did at the gym, with all the cooking and laundry I sometimes think I should could all my chores as exercise.

At one time, I did know a chart that gave calories for mundane daily activities......riding a motorcycle burns as many as walking. And riding a horse does better, if more than walking the horse!!

I did 25 squats last night. I took Saturday off, because of sore legs. Was going to get up this morning and do 30.......................but that didn't happen.

Lizzie how are the bumps and bruises? Where do you send your crochet monsters?

Misty I did my dab of work for the week today. Done!!

Karen I used to have a chart like that too. Horseback riding sounds like more fun than squats. Tho maybe not in the cold. I'm wimpy.

I spent the day after work with Mom. DH stopped by and took her washer apart and got her clothes out. No word on when the elec. company and electrician will meet and figure out who's fault this is. I found out it blew out quite a few light bulbs too. We went and got her a fire extinguisher today.
