Good ringtones Amber I tried special ringtones, then gave up. DD used to change them on purpose to weird things. Probably still would if she was around as often as when she lived here. Used to really harass her dad and bro.s doing things on theres.

Thanks Laura!

Woke up at 148.6 after 3rd day of egg fast. I think it did help get me back into ketosis. Finally back where I was before Mother's Day weekend Just staying LC for the weekend. Will consider another egg fast next week. I don't want to ruin eggs for me Want to see what it will do when I'm not up on water weight.

Raining again here; of course since I'm not working. Had a couple beautiful days during the work week Since I'm trying to stay positive: Good things about it: Filling the pool with what we are collecting from the roof (Just wish DH listened when I said to connect the gutters from the garage, when they built it, so we could use them for water collection!) It also keeps me inside so I can work on my much needed mess here. Last weekend was a bust for working due to all of the activities. No plans this weekend...so hoping.....

Enjoy the weekend everyone!

Measured my calves again today on a whim and they were 15.5" today. Must have lost a half inch since my rant. Maybe the weight is redistributing?

This one is for Amber who hopefully is finally having alone time with her love!

Okay, so I went shopping...for clothes. TJ Maxx...love that store Got several new tops. 13! Got 2 pairs of capris too. Will have to take pic.s. These should help get me through the rest of the spring/early summer. Got several basic/solid tops that I can wear with the skirts I already have and will go with the capris too.

It has been raining almost all day. The pool water is only a little bit from the bottom of the skimmer. Won't be long at this rate before we can start it up. Got my shock for it ready. More rain in the forecast too. DS is probably soaked. He got the bike when the sun peaked out for a second. Started raining again min.s after he left

Why does the weekend fly so fast? Didn't get much of what I planned done, but got to spend some time with 3/4 of the kids and GS. He "helped" Papa mow yesterday. Fell asleep on the mower!

Got a bit of a cold after all. Runny/stuffy nose and a touch of cough. Keeping the zinc going and hot tea. More sassafras tea Seemed to help last time.

Not sure when I will do another egg fast. Maybe middle of the week. T-R? No change in weight from yesterday.

Well, got work in the morning, so hitting the bed soon. Here's one to get the day started:

I'm glad you got new clothes. Looking fresh adds a little zing to your step don't you think?

Cripes, me too. We can snuggle together on the couch and watch "Auntie Mame" and drink lemon tea together.

Feel better soon!

Thanks girls. Feeling a little bit better. Still coughing, stuffy head, etc. , but think I'm on the recovery...hoping at least. No real down time. Maybe this weekend...but who knows...will probably have tons to do. Will try to work some rest in though.

DHs birthday today. 55 GS called him and sang him Happy Birthday What a doll!

Not even feeling like eating much, so this will probably cause issues. I don't want my body to go into starvation mode Trying to eat just to prevent that. Got a luncheon at work tomorrow. Not much listed that I can eat. Maybe some Kraut and HDs. Too many carby foods listed on their menu Oh, well....I'll make do and remember how hard I worked to get here!

Raining off and on here. Only a few more inches to go till the pump can be turned on for the pool! The only good thing about the rain we've had. Feel bad for everyone dealing with flooding. Weird things are going on lately....

Well, headed to bed early. Maybe extra sleep will help. Have a great day tomorrow everyone!

Feeling a bit better today. Starting to get back my energy...slowly. Spurts of it

The sun actually came out today. Good news: Got my water lettuce for the watergarden that I ordered on Ebay. Bad news: DS accidentally unplugged the pump for it, and now it won't start again. Will probably have to make a trip to the watergarden store this weekend to see if they can fix it. Good thing about that, I get to check out all of their wonderful plants and get some!

This morning started off crazy, and it continued throughout the day One of those days where I literally didn't get a break! Will be so happy tomorrow after the day is done! I need a break. DGS is coming Sat. early since DD and SIL have to work. Hopefully he lets me take it easy

Have been skipping the exercise since I got sick Have to get back into that routine soon. I liked what it was doing.

The luncheon went okay LCwise. I ate a couple hot dogs and kraut, and a hamburger (was in sauce, but had little on it since it was sticking out) Not sure of the carbs in the hamburger....Someone made broc salad. Wanted so badly to have some, but I knew it most likely was made with real sugar. Will have to make some here the LC way I wasn't even tempted by the piles of desserts! Yay me! It is getting so much easier! Not caving unless it is really worth it! I don't want to mess this up! Luncheon leftovers tomorrow....ughh!!!

TGIF tomorrow!

For those of you dealing with ex's

This was the kind of Friday that makes you need a weekend. Stressful time at work.

Hard to believe, but we are to get a day and a half of no rain...or so they say. I will believe it when I see it! Feels like we live in a rain forest lately. Squish, Squish, Squish when I walk in the yard Then, every day next week has a chance of rain in the P.M.

The weight is staying stable...though I am still trying to drop a couple more. May try the egg fast again next week to see if it will budge any more. I will have to start up my exercise routine again this weekend. The coughing, etc. is getting better. Still kicks in from time to time, but getting better.

DGS will be over early in the morning to spend some time with me while his parents work. Hoping he wants to snuggle and watch cartoons

Hoping the is shining on my friends

Sun is out!!! DH is mowing again! LOL We'll see how long it takes to be back up there! I don't even want to think about haybaling this year! First cutting will be coming soon the way it is growing...Will probably be a race between the rains. I better start lifting more! I seem to have lost strength since the weight loss....weird... You'd think I'd be able to lift more now since I'm not carrying around my lost weight. Guess it doesn't work that way.

Had a great morning with GS. (he is 2 3/4 years old) He started with a cuddle time....then fun playing on the porch for a while (game of catch, dinosaur hunting, pretend cooking, and he helped me clean a bit: swept up the dead stink bugs for me!)...back to a cuddle and now napping. I'm so thankful he still naps here. DD said he rarely naps at home now. Daycare has them all nap in the afternoon, so hoping I can get him to do that when he spends days here this summer. I will need that little break! So much energy!

Got my porch chairs "unstacked" and moved to where I usually have them. They need a spray with the hose though before I get the cushions for them out. Maybe as soon as DH is done mowing, I can do that. The porch needs a good wash too.

Going to check with my GF to see if she wants to go sooner to see Pirates. The others can't get a day together until maybe June! We are all too busy! Have fun Laura! I'd go with you if I was closer! DH thinks they are "freaks" Going to see if DS has a timetable for my pirate projects I have asked him to do for me. I want a treasure chest cooler for the pool. He made a wooden box one with a western theme for a friend, and said he'd make me one if I got the cooler for inside it...got it

OK, got shorts on...real shorts....Hoping to catch a bit of sun today...Will probably burn:blush:

Hoping you are enjoying your day!

Thanks Janet! Glad to have you along

Weeded my perennial bed that runs along the back of the house. The suspected poison ivy is back! It HAS to go! I have never had a reaction in my life to it, and I'm hoping this continues! Eek!

Guess I can't post it Will try later.
