:hiya: everyone! I've been kinda busy lately so haven't been on the threads much. Misty, you asked about the Texas snow, but Laura and I are pretty far south, so we didn't get the blizzards. It's over 700 miles from us to near the top of the Panhandle, where some of it was so bad. Mostly we got a lot of wind. :eek:

Have fun, Jo, and come back with lots of great stories! :high5: It's always relaxing to get away for a while. :)

Hang tough, everyone! The weekend's almost here! :jumpjoy:

Deb 02-28-2013 05:31 PM

TC im so looking forward to the weekend
my office manager even mentioned that this wil be the first *real* weekend we have had that nothing is going on in the building....

tomorrow is the L/B's birthday and then i have nothing planned for the entire weekend

:clap::up:

except some planning of food and workouts on sunday:)

CJMO 02-28-2013 07:04 PM

You're going to keep me busy with 2 threads!
Jo I hope you get some much needed fun in the sun

TC are you far enough south to be in snow bird country?

Misty how's the snow? Been curling anymore?

CJMO 02-28-2013 07:07 PM

Julie nice to see you. I am struggling too. Nothing seems to work.

Pat how much snow do you have? Have you had to sleep downstairs because of the wind?

CJMO 03-01-2013 12:21 PM

Guess what I'm doing this weekend ? Working at the LH!:lol:

Your house smells good. I made crock roast with carrots and potatoes this week. DH loved it.

Pat enjoy yoga. Did you get to go skiing?

Rbenz 03-02-2013 08:11 AM

:hiya:
Can virtually smell that soup & crock roast!:yummy:

Deb~How was the Chinese? Have fun cleaning out the RV.

CJ~What's next to do @ the LH? Struggling here too. My struggle is mostly procrastination.:o I have to sleep in our guest room, which is at the opposite end of our house, when the dreaded high winds pick up here.:stars:
Ended up not going skiing yesterday. Got out of the mood.:dunno:

Misty~+8" of Snow!:stars: LOL...on staying inside having drinks while watching the kids ski from a window!:laugh:

Julie~Hear ya on how clothes fit better -10#! Esp. when we have to put on the dreaded bathing suit! I will be in Hi. (Maui) too in early May! :) Which Island?

GJO~Have a Fun Trip! Yeah...try to relax & not beat yourself up!;)

Laura~:clap: 137.2!

TC~Yeah...heard you got some wind over there.

Didn't get to weigh in this AM. DH was in the kitchen early making his brekkers. We keep our scale in a corner by the pantry & I don't get on the scale when he's around.:o
Off to Yoga in a bit.

Deb 03-02-2013 11:47 AM

Carrots..Potatoes and roast in the crock-pot...OH MY :sing:

:yummy:

floor is done..now what Cheryl?
work is never done:p

Pat our chinese was delish..love almond chicken
now back to plan

havent got out to clean the camper yet....just enjoying a day off

Pat.........scale in the pantry ........:hyst:

not sure why i think thats funny:confused:

CJMO 03-02-2013 06:33 PM

Today we have been working on the trim. Base, quarter round etc. painting cutting nailing. Or I should say DH has. :) my part was choosing the style. Done.

I think Spring is almost here :jumpjoy: 60's next weekend. We still have snow at our house. At the LH all is dry. I guess they didn't get it here.

CJMO 03-02-2013 06:39 PM

Pat I gave up on losing and went to the Dr. He's thinking if he can get my sleep straightened out it will happen. The sleeping pills made me a zombie for 3 days so I quit them. I go back in a couple weeks. See what else he can do. They are also testing for my pain fatigue etc. to see what they can do different. We will see.

Deb what did u get LB?

Misty are you snowed under?

Our 34th wedding anniversary tomorrow.

Rbenz 03-02-2013 06:40 PM

Deb~:p;)

CJ~Wow! U guys R working machines!:notwrthy:

Rbenz 03-02-2013 06:42 PM

CJ~Man...I need my sleep! Hear Ya!:sad::stars:

misty1028 03-03-2013 08:00 AM

Taking a me day today, DH and Rocco have to go to there Annual Prime Rib dinner meeting for the FD. So I'll be cooking for myself. Not fair Rocco gets Prime Rib and I have to cook.

Deb what did you end up getting for L/Bs BD? We went out for chinese last night too. Now the scale is up, gets me everytime, but I love it. I love to make chicken soup but never thought of putting turnips and peppers in it, need to do that.

Laura glad your throat is better. Now are you off work this coming week? Did you get any of that snow near the part you live in. I saw it on the news wow.

Cheryl now you made me want a roast. :yummy: one of DH favorites too along with cornbread for dipping in the sauce. Yes it seems like it snow some everyday, so sick of it already. And the worse thing is DH has to go up and shovel the roof because the strong winds caused ice on it. Sending a BIG Happy Anniversary to you and DH:love:

Pat how much snow do you have? I want spring. Thought we were going to have a easy winter because it all started so late. Kids love snowbording over skiing, but they do both. I do the snowboarding with my little GD but not on the slopes, I go on the little hill behind the firehouse:laugh:

Rocco gets prime rib:heart:

its nice to have some time to yourself:) I am going to have a day this coming thursday when L/B takes his grandson on a road trip ....

ended up buying the L/B cloths..boring i know:annoyed:

Deb 03-03-2013 08:55 AM

i have been reading both of the wheat belly books and im going to get off the wheat and see how i feel...

not going to be easy but i am almost positive the wheat effects me..

makes me puffy and sometimes cranky:mad:;)

so cleaning out the fridge after workout and its real food for me seeing everything in my pantry has wheat.

anything with a label anyways:eek: Bit of a shock

wish me luck i am going to need it:help:

misty1028 03-03-2013 09:21 AM

Deb yes I couldn't believe all the wheat in foods, I was amazed. My FIL came down with celiac desease when he got older and we had to read every lable. They use it to thicken alot, but if you watch the lable on the products you use you see certain ones are wheat free. Maybe eliminate the higher count wheats first and see what happens. Good luck, you can do it.:up:

Deb 03-03-2013 12:56 PM

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY CHERYL ............:jumpjoy:

YES its a shocker for sure
i havent found any products that dont have some wheat in them....

and they even have dfferent names for wheat:mad:

so i think its best to go product free:help:

good to read labels for sure

kinda sad that all 3 of my pantry's are full

misty1028 03-03-2013 03:10 PM

Deb yes it's sad to have to throw out good food. That's why I was thinking maybe you can not buy any more and start cutting back on eating what you have in stock. Or make dishes for the pot luck dinners with some of it. So has L/B been using his Kindle. I use mine all the time, just loaded in some more books and games today. And I just downloaded the user guide to learn how to navagate it better. I still have so much to learn.
