Just had lunch out on the deck, felt so nice.

Cheryl glad the storms missed you. It's been so nice here that I'm hoping the cold weather doesn't come back.

Jo sad to hear you still have winter but I'm sure spring will hit you soon.

V what color dress are you looking for. Hope you find on and that be one less thing you have to do.

Deb: Would love to have you join me... it would be a nice evening for sure. Yes, the snow is a real downer, because we had summer temps most of the weekend. DH wanted to put the AC on but I didn't want to, because I knew it wasn't going to last long.

Misty- My daughters wedding colors are yellow and black. So far mostly looking at black dresses, but black is not the best color for me... I really don't want an ankle length dress. I would rather have a tea length... I think thats what they call it. It is longer than knee but shorter than ankle. DD says I do not have to dress in her wedding colors.. but thinks it would make for nice pictures if I do.

Cheryl: I hope your snow is like ours. Wet and melts fast.

I have decided that I need to work out when I feel stressed instead of eating. Wouldn't that be something different..lol.

Good going Nikki

V work out instead of eating. Good plan! We are all waiting for this dress

Deb I remember why we named him LB

Krista the D is dear H husband. S son D daughter etc.

We didn't get any accumulation of snow. It was 37 or higher today. But it was pretty to watch.

Misty sitting on the deck sounds nice. I spent a lot of yesterday there since I knew it was going to turn cold again.

Jo and

Hi everyone a quick run through. Yesterday was a crappy day for me but instead of stress eating last night I had a long chat with both Deb an Cheryl and they got me laughing. It worked girls my scale was the same this morning it could of been up 2 lbs. Going to run my patient menus at work then going to take both the boys to the ER for 2 different reason. Hopefully that will all work out and we can get through the rest of the day calmer then yesterday but lots to do because we are leaving on Wed train. Hope your all doing well. We can do this!

Client just called and I'll be dog sitting for her from Thur. till Wed. I've watched her many times before.

V those colors sound so nice. Hope you find the dress you like. Have you seen the new ones out that are just below the knee and dip down to mid calf in the back.

Jo hope your boys are ok. Leaving on the train? Are you going on vacation?

Cheryl the lake looks so big without any ice on it I don't think I say snow is pretty until next winter.

Pat what you going?????

Karen still slammed with tax preperations? Should be over soon.

Deb- I hope you are feeling better. Be careful though.. the virus we had was kind of sneaky. I thought I had a touch of it and would be okay, but a few days later it hit me really hard. Laid me out for 2 days straight. Cheryl might be right about why women don't get to have sick days.

I feel like a horse threw me out of the saddle this morning.
I pulled a muscle in my lower right back and am barely moving this morning. I had to cancel my workout with dd. I am glad I got most of the housework done yesterday. This is the third time I have pulled this muscle in the last few years. I don't even know how it happened...

Up early have work today so just put a beef stew in the crock for dinner.

Cheryl did you send that snow my way, got up this morning and have and inch of snow already and still snowing and the wind is horrid. Hope it melts fast.

Deb I think men get scared when we get sick, they won't admit it but they depend on us. glad your feeling better.

Jo any sign of spring up your way yet?? How the boys doing today. Hope they're ok.

Yes Misty we are outing out for Easter to my best friends place. We will be back on Mondays train. Got to catch the helicopter in about an hour then a five hour train ride but just driving one hour after that. Getting the boys braces check , yes they are doing much better, take the dog to the groomers, do some shopping then heading to her place by the afternoon or suppertime at the latest, she is only about 4 hours from where we are staying tonight. It should be a blast!! I hope everyone is feeling better, and Deb it is funny that we can't get sick. The boys were doing the dishes the other night and Mas said, were sick we shouldn't have to do them, my response, ok next time I am sick I wont cook. They got them all done up . try and teach them young. Not snowing here pretty sunny and freezing. But good for flying across the river. I am mentally tired and the place we are going for Easter is a remote hunting and fishing lodge off the grid. Love it there, the boys have to be boys so packed a hunting bow and arrow and sling shots , campfires and ice fishing. Sounds good to me right about now. And likey to much wine Deb , were cooking a turkey and ham for Easter I haven't seen her in over a year and much has happened in both our lives since then. It will be so good to see her! I don't expect we will get much sleep but that so ok with me right about now. So see you guys on late Monday or Tuesday and have a wonderful Easter whatever you are doing. Cheryl right back at you.

So glad the work week is over for me. Freezing cold out but alot of the snow melted. Got a nice beef stew for dinner

V ss about your back, hope it heals up fast. I did the same thing last week to my upper back right side and it burns like heck. Still haven't went away, using heating pad and alot of icy hot.

Jo have fun, sounds like a nice time.

nikki we are the same weight, but I'v been stuck, scale just not doing what it should.

Krista i hear you, this snow thing stinks.

Iakaren - Just horrific and senseless. What a shame.

Well my pelvic pain has flaired back up, moving slow today. No loss yesterday either so retaining some fluids which should make my goal of 149 a heck of a challenge to hit. Sitting only -1lb down so far this month at 153.5 with another 4.5 to go I'm going to do my best but unless I get one heck of a woosh it's pretty unrealistic.
My hubby is causing me a bit of frustration. Constantly since last Saturday he has been wanting to eat garbage food.. We should have Pizza tonight, lets have some wine, lets go for a Dairy Queen Blizzard...
Typically my WOE is I have very low cal/carb during the week and go off plan on the weekends, so he's taking this an an opportunity to eat everything I can't have during the week.. Problem is there is a big difference between going off plan and going off the rails! I'm packing on a good 4lbs by every Monday these days and each week struggle to lose what I gained + more.
We have a big Easter dinner on Saturday which was going to be my intended cheat day but now he also wants Chinese Food Friday and a Blizzard sometime this weekend too, if I tell him he's welcome to go get one he gets sulky. It can be so difficult when the person you live with isn't on board with you (he doesn't need to be, he's always been a skinny guy)
<End Rant>

Have a most wonderful long weekend everyone! Off Monday too (Work for a pretty rockin' company) so i'll be back poking around here Tuesday.
Be Well!!!

SS you aren't feeling well.

My DH is DQ fan too. I would get a fudge bar 50 calories. Or sometimes a mini blizzard. Most are less than 200 calories. Progress is hard.

Hey Karen!!

V hope that back of your eases up.

Misty I didn't mean to send the snow your way honest! hopefully it's gone quick.

Nikki I am not making much progress either. Grr

Jo Deb hope you are enjoying you're time off.

Worked yesterday then ran errands and grocery shopped for Mom. I think I figured out what's is making her queasy. She started taking cranberry for her bladder. I had her quit it yesterday and she feels much better today.

They are replacing her crooked window tomorrow and should straighten her crooked door then also. Safe room door installed. The list of fixes is getting smaller. She is going to call a fence company to fix her gate and post. We've tried several things that haven't worked. I think the gate is just too big and heavy. Sag. Blows open. And now the post is loose. She is still in pain. Come on Monday!

Well my back is a bit better today, but I am still taking it easy. I think it will not take me long to get back to normal. My gd came over this morning, but I could not get on the floor and play with her like I usually do.. so we just blew some bubbles instead and she chased them around.

Cheryl: Was your Mom taking the cranberry pills? I know when I take them, if I do not drink a ton of water they will upset my stomach because they are so concentrated. I know how nice it will be when they have the door and window fixed. Hope it is all finished Monday. We are cool again today with rain, which we desperately need. Thank goodness the wind died down.. yesterday it was awful.

Cuda: my dh likes for me to eat garbage with him too. I love it too, so it is hard for me to say no and he knows that. Sorry your pain has flared up. I hope you enjoy your long weekend.

Deb: I hope you are feeling back to normal and have said goodbye to that nasty virus. I know you are always busy and there is plenty to be done.. but try not to over do it for a few days. Are you going away for the weekend?

Misty- it is cold and wet here... the beef stew sounds perfect for a day like this. I am glad to hear your snow melted at least. I am sorry Cheryl sent it to you. But, I think I sent it to her first.

Jo: have a nice visit with your friend, and enjoy the wine and turkey! Sounds like a perfect weekend to me.

Karen: It's good to see you. I keep missing you because I skip a day or two and then do not go back and catch up. I hope everything is going well...

Nikki: I hope you have a nice weight drop for today since yesterday was a down day.
