Karen wow sounds like you got a good storm coming, do you usually get alot of snow there? yes like Cheryl you take a tractor to work??? I think I remember you saying that you had a real long driveway to the road. I was just thinking that when your work slows down to normal that my summer work will be starting up full force.

Cheryl now when you get the snow storms does it hit both areas, your cottage and you home? Didn't know how far the 2 are apart from each other. We have 2 snow blowers ready at all times during the winter. And with DH being on the FD they come and blow to make sure he can get out when the tones go off. That's the plus of it.

Lizzy and Rena where are you girls??? Hope everthing is ok. Pop in when you can and let us know.

The LH is about 50 miles sw of us. They get pretty much the same weather. I keep track of the power outage map now. So far so good. But we may stay home this weekend. Slick out with all the sleet, plus some melting and refreezing. It was supposed to be in the 59's Sat but now they are saying not until Sun. So we would have a few miles of untreated road to get out of where live to a Hwy. then the same thing when we got to the lake. Plus there we have to cross some low bridges that freeze and go into some curves by the water that don't even have guard rails. I'd rather stay and get stuff done here.

I'm just relaxing and watching TV tonight

Karen you still riding the tractor?

I am here ladies. Been way to busy with work, baseball practice and the little league board, so I will need to go back and catch up on everyone.

Good news, weight is down to 132! Started working out again and feeling good. I am set on looking good when we go to Jamacia.

Need to go feed my kids. I will try to catch up later.

How you doing Karen? Hanging in there? I get my taxes done next week.

I've been a zombie the past month. Dr has working with me on my sleep issues. I ended up way too sleepy on the first round if meds. Lots better now. Tho I'm waking a lot in the night again. but I'd rather be more alert, less medicated. I also had low Vit. D and that may contribute to the fatigue. If I don't start sleeping better/ feeling better he wants to do a sleep study. He was narcolepsy as a possible problem. We shall see.

Still fighting the weight. He thinks if I can get the fatigue under control the weight will come off. I'm trying a 1200 cal diet for now. Again we shall see.
At least he took me seriously.

Hi everybody. Scale is holding steady for me, so no complaints!!

Hubby just found a 750 Shadow motorcycle (2008) with zero miles, so looks like I get to move up to the 600 Shadow this year. Gotta go!!

The end is in sight.

Most of our return is going to a new gas tank for the car.

Snow here and windy tomorrow. I'm back to low carbing.

I am not even sure what I eat. I just know I get shakey if I forget. And my employees all make sure they pick me up food from wherever they grab a bite.

They are doing terrific!! And I will worry about food AFTER 4/15!!

But trying to live on coffee and water... Staying away from sugar drinks.

Shakes doesn't sound good! Take care of yourself! Just a little less than a month to go.

Weigh in for week one is tomorrow. I sure hope it is down.

The snow is melting. We are supposed to be in the 60's this weekend.

Hi!!!!

Down is down. Stress makes me eat. Which makes me gain. I need a Lucile emoticon that thunks his head and goes duh!

I'm slowly losing again. I just have to be patient.

I'm glad you are losing!

Raining here today, so nice slow day with no desire to go outside.

Got DH a new motorcycle, so waiting for warm and sunny now.

How goes it in other people's worlds?
