Hi everyone. Sorry I've been MIA. As usual, I am way behind on posts, but I have to say congratulations to Tony on your first grandson! You must be over the moon.

Abi, I'm so sorry you are having to go through all of the pain and inconvenience caused by your knee. I know I haven't commented in the past, but you have been in my prayers.

I promised to get caught up on posts and be more active. I know I've missed anniversaries and birthdays and I'm sorry!

I have updated by stats...one ounce away from Onderland!

Have a great evening....see you all tomorrow.

So happy for you Tony and your whole family. Can't wait to get all the details!

Tammy, sorry the guy didn't work out. You really need the extra help.

Chris, 18 pounds in 3 months is fantastic!

Lynne, hope the 2 surgeries all work out for the fmla and short term disability.

I start therapy tomorrow and talked my Dr. into letting me go to a pull on ace bandage thing for around the house. That brace was wearing me out. I feel so much better already.

I had two great phone calls this afternoon. One from a girl I worked with in Alabama. We hadn't talked in probably 15 years. The other call Tony was from 90 year old Mrs. Kenyon from North Bennington. What a sweet heart she is. She and Mom were good friends when we were growing up there and she is still sharp as a tack.

Hey All, nutty day at work. Busy day after, the old man is putting shingles on the roof. Well, more supervising his brother and friend than working

Tony that pic is just beautiful.
Abi I bet your leg feels lighter without the brace. I hope PT goes good tomorrow.
Chris supervising is hard work..right?!?
Today instead of binge eating...I binge cleaned. NSV for me.

Hi guys!1

Tony, what a precious picture!!! and 8 pounds is a big boy!!!!! I can only imagine how delighted your entire family must be!

Marilee, you are doing AMAZING....how awesome!!

Lynn, that would be very cool if your doc would do the surgeries back to back....just get it all over with at once! It would be so much easier for you to juggle with work too...fingers crossed you can get it worked out!

Chris, 28 years is pretty great, you go girl! and I agree with Lynn, 18 pounds in 3 months is incredible!! I need to get my butt back in gear and get back on track myself.

Abi, so glad you could ditch the brace, I'll be praying your PT goes well for you!

FF, how's it going??

Well kids, I think I might have identified an assistant manager, she passed the skills exam (Barely) she has property management experience, and so far her references are decent....Hopefully by Friday I can get an offer out there and actually get her onboarded in the next two weeks.....that would make life so much easier!!! For now I'm still working crazy hours just trying to stay caught up....but there's a light at the end of the tunnel....and I do't think it's a train!

Have a great evening all!

Tony, as we say on Ferenghinar...

MAZEL TOV on the birth of Salvatore!!! loved the thumbnail. spent most of the day sleeping. elevator was being serviced, AGAIN! ergo i was stuck inside. I AM hungry now,though. I feel like a bear waking up from hibernation. I will throw something together for sure. I will reserve the right, if I may, of setting up the next Blitz, beginning Sat. April 1.

ff, we LOVE that you are setting up these blitzes, after all, you birthed them!...

thanks for the well-wishes all!

i have been a bit off plan too with all the commotion and won't be weighing until i get at least a good week under my belt...that starts TODAY!

it was a bit sad bringing the girls home yesterday...we had them 3 nights and 4 days and enjoyed every second of it...it is so cute to see them with their little brother - they are such loving kids...the docs kept him and emmy for an extra day as they do not share blood types and that led to mild jaundice which they treated with light therapy...he will be checked today and hopefully he doesn't have to be readmitted...

crazy day today - i cleared my calendar to watch the girls and now i have to play catch-up!...dreading the idea of another snowstorm!

okay, i hate getting this wrong - is it lynne or lynn?...

I'll be glad when I get paid tomorrow, the fridge is bare. I found a few lc tortillas in the freezer yesterday, so today breakfast and lunch was chicken and cheese wraps. Dinner, probably a burger if the old man thaws it out.

I got an awesome compliment from a co-worker! Which made my crampy day more tolerable.

Rain off and on today, so I don't know if the guys will get the roof finished. Gotta love cheap labor. I'm glad the old man is mechanically inclined, he can fix pretty much anything. Although I think he tried to electrocute me once with the generator.

Dinner was a lack of ingredient creation, hamburger fried with onions and garlic, added ranch dressing, sour cream, shredded cheese. Sort of a Hamburger Helper looking thing, but it needed help. So I added Creole seasoning. It was decent, and I'll be eating leftovers for lunch at work tomorrow, and probably tomorrow's dinner too.

Lynn, there's no such thing as a fun relaxing day at work

Ok gang, last day of the Blitz, I'm officially down 21 pounds! Sweeeet

But here's the difference in 2 scales. At home I'm down 3# since Sunday. But today's weigh in at work, I'm up .8 of a pound since last Friday. What the crap! Oh well, I have 3 more weeks to get it in gear and try to get in 3rd place to win my money back.

Today's vittles, lc bowl from Hardee's, the hamburger creation leftovers, bunless burger.

No plans for the weekend except to get Thing 2 ready for his DC field trip next week.

Hi all, as you may be aware I have been MIA. Duh!

We went to FL over spring break and of course I wasn't on plan. Oh well, regardless I was surprised I didn't weigh more when I got back. We had a good time and the kids put an offer in on a house, countered once and got it. I haven't heard when they move in, but we were able to see the house when we were there. I am excited for them.

We went to Hammock state park where they camp, Epcot (which was way too crowded for me, never again). I was surprised that we could take food and drink in. Z &A stock up on cheap snacks and that is what we took. high carb, now nutritive value ha ha. I did get my steps in though with all of the walking.

Hubby and I celebrated our 5th anniv there by staying at an AirB&B in Port St Lucie on Thurs night. We watched the sunrise over the ocean and had breakfast, drove across the state after touring a light house. Had supper in a restaurant that overlooked the Gulf and watched the sunset. It was a very nice trip.

I was 239.4 when we returned and I started the new Fat Flush Plan and followed it for a week and got down to 232.4, not bad. But, I was getting sick of the shakes that included green powder and sunflower lecithin. I am not watching as closely as I was and am really losing steam. Almost talking myself into the "what is wrong with where I am at" mentality. Today I was 237.4. So, I am not sure how I am going to do whatever. Who knows.

Tony, congrats on the grandson.

Abs and Chris, I like you avitars.

Marilee, you look fantastic and a breath away from onederland. Maybe some day I will join you.

ff, I see you aren't posting as often as usual. Hope all is well

Avo, good to see you posting

Tammy, glad you are back.

Sorry if i missed anyone.

Tony, what a darling photo of the big sisters loving on their little brother. Hope that the jaundice is all cleared up now for little Linc. I am dreading the snow storm today. So far it is melting on the roads and our drive but I doubt that will last. I managed to get my leg in the car and drove to my pt last evening. I feel like I have been let out of prison but now with the snow I will be cooped up again I'm afraid. At least the temps for the next week are pretty warm so hope it all melts quickly!

Marilee and Tammy thanks for the prayers. And Lynne, it does feel better without the brace.

Tammy, hoping again this lady works out for you!

Lynne, hope today is fun and relaxing and the grand reopening goes well. And I'm like Tony, is it Lynne or Lynn?

Therapy was not as bad as I had imagined. I have 2 sessions next week and 2 sessions the week after. I have exercises to do at home and so far today have been pretty faithful.

Marilee, so fantastic you are only oz. away from onderland!!

Vicki, small world. I just sent a birthday card today to my best child hood friend. (Mrs. Kenyon's daughter) who is in Port St. Lucie right now. She and her husband go there every winter from New York. So neat that your son and daughter in law have bought a new home and you got to see it. Happy 5th Anniversary!

Chris, that put together meal sounded good to me. I really hope you are the winner of the contest. You have done fantastic!

Congratulations on all the losses. Wish I could say the same but it has been just too stressful and no exercise for so long I had no good results.

FF, thanks for starting our next Blitz "O Fearless Leader"

Waiting to see the eye doctor for my bum eye. Still no word from the GI specialist.
It is Lynn..no e..but doesn't bother me.
Our re grand opening was a success. I did work..but management was so busy they left us alone.
I had a great steak for lunch. Ordered it medium rare and got medium..that usually happens..it was good though.

LYNN!!!!! hope all goes well at work and that you feel better soon...

chris, you led the way this blitz!...great job!...

abs, happy you are able to drive, but please take it easy - this storm is gonna create slippery conditions...baby's numbers are normalizing and he's nursing like a little piggy, so he'll be fine...his sister's do not leave him alone for a minute...ama "reads" him books all day...very cute

vicki, i'm happy you had such a good time with the kids in florida...you'll find your mojo...when you get motivated, there is no one with a stronger will than you - i've seen it!

ff, i watch a lot of music videos on youtube...you must be loving the delay of spring!

crazy day at the building...my new tenant has moved in and i'm done with my work for him...had two new people want to lease space today...nothing may happen, but it would be a game changer if i can fill the remaining space...we'll see...

mediation in the morning and then back to the building!
