Deb everyone was up early here too but we skipped the beer even the teenagers got up to watch the game and that something for the boys on a Sunday. At least we didn't have to get up as early as you. But it was a great game and pretty loud around my house. The closing ceremonies were beautiful. Well lets say my week starts today The boys insisted I have a small piece of cake since it was my birthday cake. It was so funny they were all excited to have cake and when we took our first bite I almost laughed. Gary said whats the taste and Mason said Dad the cake taste funny. I am not sure how much baking soda he put in it but I am thinking a tablespoon instead of a teaspoon. But they are all still eating it said they got use to the aftertaste gotta love him for trying. Karen our beer is quite a bit stronger then yours, but you should never try and keep up with us Northern girls Lizzie I am sure your one tot won't hurt you , sounds like you doing a good job sticking to it. I like taco beef on a salad with cheese and sour cream . Cheryl Yes he has a few problems stemming from it but he does great. The car got started thank god , hate when that happens and yes my hubby can be great but he can be a great pain in the ass too Got to take the good with the bad I guess Misty I remember you saying you played curling on the lake that must be a lot of fun for sure. We watched all the curling as well and enjoyed it. Deb did you get your nap?

DH almost got sick working on the septic at the LH. Found the break in the line. Dug it out. Went in and flushed the toilet. When he went out to check if that was the only break, the trench was full of stinky waste that had backed backed up in the line. he thought he had already cleared the line. said it was terrible. can you tell I was sympathetic . Hopefully he will get it connected next weekend. Too wet and stinky now.

Total me day today, did a little work around here but not much. DH has that darn flu so bad, I called and canceled the trip to Boston tomorrow. He scared the daylight of me last night, I was watching tv and he got up to get some gingerale and then passed out on the floor. but is ok.

Deb 7 am beer but great way to celebrate. They sell Canadian beer here in the states but I don't think it's the real thing. Not sure.

Jo still so nice of DH to make the cake, must of tasted a little salty. I was us early watching too, but no beer but should of made a morning Bloody Mary

Lizzie I could never had eaten 1 tot, I make a tater tot casserole for the kids and I just don't taste.

Cheryl wow poor DH what a mess, I rememer when we had septic, they finally put sewer in about 5 years ago, it was mandatory. I was reading and artical in a magazine on BFC, got to finish it. It really sounds like a keeper.

Karen hope you got to have today off. I know your always so busy this time of year. Hope you have lots of help.

V and Pat hope your having a great weekend.

Just another at home day today, then work starts again tomorrow. So glad I cancelled the Drs appointment in Boston. Scale is going down, but not much of an appetite. Think I make a big pot of soup, DH isn't very hungry either.

Deb I love that pic can't wait for Pat to see it Sounds like you had a great rest day too. We just got to have them now and then.

Cheryl did you buy the book on BFC, after reading the article in the magazine, I love the comcept. I'm think of looking into more.

Jo ss your not feeling well and it makes it harder when you have to work. Hope it goes by fast for you. Seems that the flu is hitting everyone this year.

Good Monday morning everyone-

Deb- Beer and Hockey? At 4 in the morning? Wow, you are living on the edge!

Cheryl- I feel bad for your dh... what a job. I hope he can get it fixed this week. We are going back into winter weather this week. Hopefully the freezing rain stays north of us.

Misty- I hope your dh is feeling better... that passing out would have scared the daylights out of me. I hope you are getting over the stuff as well. It has been a bad year for sickness.

Lizzie- WTG on staying strong. 1 tot shouldn't be too bad on the carbs.. I think it will not cause too much damage. As long as you can stop at 1, that is the hard part.

I am having a crazy week this week. My inlaws are having a 50th anniversary dinner/party this saturday. I am trying to help MIL as much as I can, but she has 100 people coming and is a nervous wreck. So, I have many things to get done this week.. maybe I can run a couple more pounds off.

V wow sounds like you'll be busy, but I'm sure it'll turn out real nice. 100 people that's alot. Are they having it catered?

Cheryl did you see the thread on here on the BFC plan, sounds pretty good and so does the food.

Yes Misty, that's where I found out about it. I was scanning new posts and decided to look at it. It is a pretty informative thread.

V wow that's a lot of people! Our weather doesn't look to bad. Cooling off and some wintery mix some time this week. But nothing bad

Jo feeling any better birthday girl?

Deb slept in !!!

Karen- Sorry about the sick girl Friday. Hope you don't have too much stress the rest of the week. We are back in the deep freeze again. Looks like we might have ice in the next few day.

Cheryl- yes, lots of people. I am really hoping we do not have any freezing rain on Saturday.. it is forecasted for Sunday. You know how the weather works in the midwest... hit and miss.

Deb- I hope you are catching up on the sleep... I will be up in six hours and heading out to the gym. I am really trying to stick with it. I just imagine my friend Deb is at the gym and will be giving me trouble if I don't show up.

Misty- We are doing the food ourselves.. lots of helpers, but still the family is providing the food. I am bringing the ham, cupcakes and cake. But, I have 3 good daughters helping me out. I think the hardest part is trying to keep my MIL calm. She is very nervous and wants perfection, which is not the way big events work.

Well, I am off to bed. Workout coming right up in six hours. I will do a weigh in tomorrow. Good night all.

Howdy, Gang! Sorry I have been MIA...just busy w/Skiing, yoga & DH's relatives came for a visit. Nope...they didn't stay w/us!

Lizzie! Wow...on only eating 1 T-Tot!

Jo~Sorry you aren't feeling well. LOL...on DH's after-tasty Cake. Well, he tried...

Deb~ Funny Cartoonie! That actually did look like me last Saturday! Congrats to you Canucks on the Women's Hockey win against us! Me likey those higher Alkyhol Beers! We have some IPA beer here that give a good punch. They really taste great apres ski.

Misty~Poor DH w/the Flu! Passing out would have freaked me out too! Bummer on the rash...Hope it's all gone?

V~Yikes...on the 100 peep party! That would be too much stress for me on my Anniversary.

CJ~Poor DH dealing w/that septic goop! Need to go research that BFC plan.

Karen~Hope girl Fri is better? How was the ice cream?

Well, yes...I really do resemble Deb's cartoon! Turns out I did something again to myself in Yoga class last Sat.! Was complaining a bit about my back afterward. But, that's nothing new w/me. It didn't help either that I sat too much watching the Olympics Sat. night. Tried going to sleep but, couldn't & started thinking I had appendicitis! I was having some Lumbar nerve pain that was radiating a dull ache from my lower rt. quadrant down to my knee! Woke up DH around 4am & told him I thought I might have appendicitis? I got up & took a shower & washed my hair. Didn't want to go to the ER looking like I did. U/Know? After the shower...I did feel a bit better & even fell asleep by 5am'ish. Sooo, yesterday was couch day & Naprosyn. Feeling a bit better today. Ho-hum....

Pat- Good to see you again! Sounds like you have been plenty busy. I hope your back is feeling better today.

Deb- I think it's this winter. It is making me tired too. I am just pushing myself through because I am gonna have to squeeze into a dress for dd's wedding in may. Plus, I am helping her by pushing her to go with me.

I have been running since my workout this morning. Errands, cleaned my sister's house. Now to clean mine, and fix some dinner. Then college basketball for me. Our Wichita State team is undefeated... very exciting for us.
