We had 3 dump trucks of dirt delivered today for the yard. And a dump truck of road rock laid on the road. Lots of pot holes gone now.

Two more days of work and I can't wait. Next Thursday a few of us girls are going down to my sisters boat for a few days. Trying to get tanned a little more so I don't burn down at the ocean.

Cheryl where was the dirt dumped, at the LH? That's alot of dirt, are you putting a new lawn in?

Real hot here

Im taking a mental health day

infact the L/B and I are thinking of making a move to a smaller building somewhere..called for a meeting of the head persons to go over a new contract but if we are not happy we will be looking else where.we have found that our head manager is really doing no work any more and putting more and more on us..kinda taking a toll on the both of us...so maybe a 30 unit building in a small town???

I would like to slow life down just a little

Deb sounds like a good move. You don't need the stress and all the added work. Sounds like the head manager is getting lazy and taking advantage of you both.

Nice tats.

The dirt was at our real house. We wouldn't be allowed to do that at the LH. Lots of lake rules about things like that. We have low places and we had 60+ stumps removed a while back.

Deb I hope you work out the building problems.

Hot here. But it is summer.

Deb sending you luck that all works out great when you meet the Prez. Maybe he'll set things straight.

Cheryl that's right I remember when you had talked about the stumps removed. Bet you'll going to have a great yard now. Are you and DH doing all the grateing your self. Are rules on the Lake are strick too. Have to go through the conservation commitee for every little thing.

Karen, Jo, Pat and Bucky

Well the scale is starting to be nice to me. Down a whole lb, finally. Now hope it sticks.

Deb I do that with avocados, never got any avocados but it will grow into a beautiful kind of tree. BBQ chicken burgers sound so good. DH said he was sick of grilled food for awhile, so I did baked ham, baked cauli, and salad. So yummy for a change. So are you staying or going to look for smaller units??? Tks on the scale, I can't belive this is the first summer that I'm eating and drinking a bit and still losing. I think I finally learned what works for me, as I'm getting older

I've never tried to grow an avacado. They are pretty plants. A friend grew a lemon tree and it had fruit. That surprised me.

Misty maybe you could post your meals as a guide to us oldsters that are struggling. pretty please

Deb so are you staying?

We are staying home this weekend to play in the dirt hopefully by next weekend we will have the boat lift in and can leave the boat in the slip we brought a portable swing for Mom to put in her courtyard so she can sit in the shade and people watch. She half fell off the back step last week and hurt her hip then conked her head on her wood work table the 4th and had a big goose egg on her forehead. I'm encouraging her to sit.

How come I can be so determined in the evening to get up the next morning and exercise and change my eating, and then I wake up tired and not enough ambition to exercise in the morning????????????

My excuse is getting older......

The meeting went good I think..the Prez was surprized to find out that our head manager quit working about 4-5 months ago but didn't tell anyone

He has taken L/B and I to do everything so he can lunch and sit on the puter and phone...so I guess today the Prez is going to make a stop here and have a little chat with mr BIG......

we now call him little BIG man because he thinks he runs the place

I had no problems telling Prez that its me and my office manager that run the place and that mr BIG could go away for a long time and not even be missed

so Prez tells us that we are just taking some of our job too serious and we need to stop doing mr BIG's work and just do our duties

He made it perfectly clear that they don't want us to leave
but I have a funny feeling someone IS leaving so time will tell

Im off to town to buy a straight iron

Back from the west side of the island. 10 lbs of water weight (mostly I'm sure) up from sore muscles and water retention from the carbs! it was fun though, but I'm ready for some strict induction now, and to start losing again, which I haven't really been doing since the end of April.

My legs are killing me from the hot springs walk up and down stairs for 2 km, and my joints and "everything" hurt from the carbs and sugar!

Going to get some groceries today after we're both showered and dressed, already had my fried eggs and cheese, drinking my decaf, and making my induction grocery list. Also going 100% gluten free, so replacing the soy sauce etc. as well today.

Enjoy your day!

I know how you feel. I'm really good until mid afternoon or early evening, then I just want to EAT EVERYTHING in sight all night long. Today is day one of strict induction for me again, so, good luck to us both!

Deb~Glad meeting was sort of productive? Why do peeps who have curly hair want straight hair & vice versa?

Avy~Welcome back! Hope your carb bloat/soreness gets reduced quickly!
Good luck going back on strict re-induction!

Well, scale is down a bit again today. My Holiday Plus celebration is slowly re-correcting itself! 1 more to go to get back to where I was on 7/3! When will I learn? Luckily, there are no more Holidays until Labor Day!
No Yoga again today...needed a break. Will resume tomorrow.
I got to sleep in & leisurely eat my Brekkers. Baked up a Brekker casserole yesterday...so, will be eating that for the rest of the week.
Dinner...planning on roasting a Tri-tip, w/mash cauli & roasted bruss-sprouts.

WOE: My way mixing it low carb
Busy day. Took LD to the groomer today and he is a cutie again. Did Mom errands today. I'm trying to talk her into a pergola for her back porch. It faces west and its just too hot. She had one at the old house and loved it. We saw one at Home Depot out of rough sawn cedar that she really liked today.

I lost my wallet today. Again! This is getting rediculous. I got to the Mall and felt for it- I wear a phone case clipped to my jeans and use it as a wallet so I don't have to carry a purse- and it was gone. Hopped in the car and went back to Kohls. Retraced my steps. Found out it had been turned in to customer Service. Everything there!! Then later I am pulling out of Moms driveway and she comes running after me. It fell off in the driveway! obviously it is too worn out to use now. I will have to find something else.

Yes I was VERY lucky today !!

Pat congrats on the loss. I'm staying the same for now. I have that beast you were talking about. what do you put in your Brekker cassarole?


Karen my excuse is I like taters !! My downfall!! I need a fried tater diet.

Deb glad the prez is on your side. Take care.


Welcome back Avy. Sounds like a painful good time.

Oh. Mom has a bunny nest in her back yard. She dug a little hole and covered it with grass. Mom thought it looked strange and moved the clippings and saw all theses tiny bunnies. She showed me today. So tiny. Just have to be careful mowing now. But it's nice to see wildlife coming back. The birds are coming back too.
