I agree. It is hard to see them walk out the door, but wonderful to see them succeed in their dreams and goals.

Having said that, I need to tell all of you goodbye. I will be leaving this wonderful team and SP tomorrow. I'm having a hard time trying to work the challenges and still fit them into my personal plan with my weight loss surgery. It's just not working for me.

I will miss all of you so much. Your support has been invaluable and so welcome!

I wish all of you the very best! Much love and hugs! Beverly

Glad you made it through the graduation Wendi. Always an emotional time but I hate the day they walk out the door to their future life be it school or a job. Awesome to see them reach their goals though.

Erase the Crepe - drink more water. I have it too.

Wendi - proud mamma! Just embarking on the next adventure.


Simple, fun. summer. Any other thoughts for June? Will be working on the threads Friday and Saturday. May not get the boards changed until Sunday. I'm absolutely crazed until Sat. evening and then I can take a deep breath again.

What are some of your favorite challenges/boards?

Congrats Wendi! So glad it all turned out wonderful.

I remember when my son graduated from high school and college...so proud of him and the man he is today (31, married, owns a house and has the job he wanted...graphic designer). What more can you ask for?

Hey everyone!

Well we survived graduation. So proud of that kid! Momma was a pool of tears but everything went off without a hitch. Of course too much food as usual. Lots of leftovers. So good to have family here too. I'm always on such a low after everyone leaves. Trying to get back in the swing of everything again. Looking forward to the June challenges. I need something to get me going again!

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend and oof.....summer already!! Have a great day!

Laura - Glad you're almost done! Hope your kitty is ok. Any theme is fine...you always do a great job!

Cherrie - Great job on the loss! I've never used Crepe Erase because I haven't lost that much. I'd love to know if it works too!

Jules & Jill - Hi!!! Great to see you!

Turning 69 in a couple months, and although I've only lost 40 lbs. so far, within the past few months I'm really noticing more crepe wrinkles, especially in my neck and arms.

Has anyone ever used Crepe Erase (As Seen on TV)?

Yahoo for a break - you definitely deserve it. As always I like when the boards are kept simple - especially in the summer when everyone is busier. You always do such a wonderful job. Thank you.

Been a busy weekend - fun on Saturday and homework/study group yesterday and today. Also dealing with a sick kitty so will probably be making a trip to the vet tomorrow. Then study group again. We are in the final stretch for this class and then my first break in 4 years. I'll be all on board for June.

Any ideas for what we should do in June?

I'm hoping it helps. It's so hard to lose as I get older. I used to be able to lose by cutting back a bit, but not anymore! We've been going 3 times a week. Got in 35 min today.

sorry I've been mia. work has just been busy and I have not been applying myself very well.

Happy Friday!!! Rainy spring days this week and weekend. I don't mind since fire season is right around the corner -so I hope it helps

My weight is back up. I hate it. I eat the wrong stuff or entirely too much of the right stuff. I've been really bad with emotional eating lately. Eating my emotions and stress just makes me as big as a barn! emoticon But I keep tracking it all anyways and not giving up...so I guess thats something positive.

I am making steak and potatoes in my instant pot tonight. I cut the steak up into bite size pieces and its been marinating since last night. should be tasty!

Have a great weekend!! emoticon

Oh Wendi, I remember when. You know when they are little you can't wait for them to grow up then when they are grown you wish they were little all over again. You have every reason to be proud of him. HE did awesome!

Jill I love my instant pot. I made a taco pie in mine the other night. Last night hubby got his prized mac&Cheese (I do not make it very often.). Tonight Im not sure what I am making but I know it will be in the instant pot. Makes my life so much easier.

Ohh Beverly (((hugs)) ) I know it always makes me sad when my youngest son heads back to Texas. They will forever be our little boys.

You've got this Wendi. Graduation was sad but nothing like the day they leave home for whatever lies ahead for them.

Have a great day to all of you.

Thanks everyone! He is such a good kid and really worked hard. He got his honor cords yesterday and was so proud. It doesn't all come easy to him as he struggled with speech for a long time and still does a little bit. But he managed to stay on the honor roll all 4 years. Proud mom moment!!

Beverly-sounds like you had a great time with your son and the rest of your family. I get the crying......me all the time. I cry sometimes when my oldest leaves and he only lives 120 miles away! Take a little time to rest up now!

I have to get pictures together today for the graduation party. That will be a lot of CRYING!! Jill- we are having an open house at the church. Don't have a lot of room at our house and it is hard when you have people staying here.

Well I'm off to get something done. Brenda--I have about 1/2 the stuff on my list crossed off! making progress!!

Have a great day everyone! The weather has been beautiful here the last few days....upper 70s.

Jill, I know how glad you are to get back! Take the time you need to get back into the swing of your own life!

Wendi, congrats to you and your son! I know when MY sons walked down the aisle, I felt like I should have been with them! They all needed some "pushing!" LOL!

My middle son left yesterday to go back to Mississippi. Won't see him again for at least a year, unless I can get my husband to make the trip down there with me.

We had a good time together! I had ALL my family with me on Mother's Day and on Monday (which was my husband's birthday). That happens so infrequently!

I'm really worn out with so much movement and excitement. The Ren Faire on Saturday was fun and I was so glad I decided to take my scooter as they parked us way out in the "back 40" and we had to get ourselves into the fair - no courtesy vans! Then we were there for 3 hours! On Sunday, I wore myself out making Mother's Day dinner. Would have been nice if my daughter-in-law had volunteered, but she never does. Monday, my middle son and I went Mall hopping. Once again, I was glad I had the scooter in my vehicle. We were out from 7:30 to 3. Thank goodness we had plans to eat out that night for my husband's birthday. Then yesterday, I had an appointment in the morning and then took my son to the airport. I always cry when I have to say goodbye.

Today I'm relaxing some this morning, then another appointment this afternoon. I'll be glad when things slow down!

Wendi Congratulations on the graduate. I know how stressful it is prepping for the big day as family and friends arrive for the big day. Are you throwing a little party at your house?

Thanks for the welcome home. I really need to start focusing on myself and stop worrying about trying to catch up in one day. Been making very poor choices here.

Hope everyone had a good mother's day. Glad you got home Jill! Laura you are doing great....hope that 3 weeks flies by for you!

I am starting to panic. I still have so much to do before graduation. I know I will get it done as I do work well under pressure but I am feeling overwhelmed. My son got his honor cords yesterday and he is so proud! I AM TOO! He really had to work to be on the honor roll his whole entire high school years. Well just wanted you all to know I am around but I am crazy busy or just plain crazy! Ha Ha!!

Have a great day!

Welcome home Jill!

I'm worn out today...lots of standing and cooking yesterday, then today I went shopping at Costco, Target and worked out at the gym. My feet are worn out and relaxing!

Beverly - I've ordered from the kids menu and have also eaten appetizers. Sometimes I share a meal or bring half home. I've got to cut those sizes and calories down somehow!

Deep breaths, Laura! You can do it!

Today, my two youngest sons and I are going to the Ren Faire! I debated just using my walker, but decided that considering the uneven terrain I'll be trying to walk on I'd be better off with my scooter - so back in the SUV it goes! I'm still really thankful for that scooter!!!

Tomorrow, I'm having the whole family to my house for ribs; and Monday is my husband's birthday so the whole family is going out to eat. I usually end up ordering some type of appetizer as I can't eat a whole meal. I've even started looking at the kids' menus!

I've been to those bridges and the house from the movie as well. It really seems like time stood still.


Super busy weekend and then all week with this class. I keep telling myself 3 more weeks and then I can take my first break in almost 4 years.

Sounds like a fun trip Beverly!

My sister, niece and I went grocery shopping for our Mother's Day brunch. It's going to be delicious and the main dish and a side are zero points for Weight Watchers!

Sorry you're having a bad week, Tracy. But at least your weather is good.

The Shen Yun show was fabulous! My friend and I drove over on Tuesday morning and tried stopping by the Bridges of Madison County (which the movie was named for) just about 15 minutes out from our hotel. It was rather cool and starting to rain, so we didn't get out. Unfortunately, most of the bridges look exactly the same. So we gave up after 3 of the 6. That night we went to the show. Then Wednesday, we were going to go to the History Museum in Des Moines but it had rained (and was still raining) all night and we were just too achy from the damp to think about walking around much. So we came home early.

My son came in yesterday and will stay until Tuesday. I'm enjoying visiting with him!

TGIF!

This was a really bad week with food. Super hormonal and eating was pretty much out of control emoticon Makes me feel even more horrible. Really hoping to settle back down.

I will be driving food deliveries tonight and tomorrow night. Stepping in to help friend with his business while he is on vacation. Will be a break from Uber driving this weekend. Personally I prefer the uber driving - it isn't as hectic or labor intensive. My knee does not like the stairs at the condos and apartments when doing the food delivery. I did it Tuesday night and was running my butt off. Trying to get my DH to ride with me tonight for a bit -maybe he can even help carry stuff. More likely he will stress himself into a panic attack before I even start my shift.

We have lovely warm spring weather in my area. Been lower 80's this week and going up to 90* this weekend. We are doing a bbq at my parents on Sunday. I will make a no-bake cheesecake and get some fruit to take. Stazia is making a side dish and a fancy dessert. Should be a good time.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

How fun Beverly I have been to a couple of ballets they are so net to watch.

Have you ever been to see Cirque Du Solei? Doug and I went to our second one last night. I love going to them. Those people are amazingly talented.

Time flies, Wendi! Enjoy it all.

It's cold and rainy through Saturday, but we're supposed to be clear and 69 for Mother's Day.

Beverly...I've been to a few ballets including the Nutcracker with the Russian ballet. Shen Yun looked good... we'll have to see it.

That's cool, Beverly. I've never been to a ballet.

The sun is shining here today but the rain is supposed to hit tomorrow BUT in the 70s on Mother's Day! Yay!

I'm slowly checking things off my list but I need to go a little faster as just over 2 weeks until graduation. Youngest has a band concert tonight. I can't believe this school year is almost over!!

Was wondering where you were off to Tracy - glad to see you back on.

I have an instant pot and an air fryer. I rarely use the instant pot but use the air fryer often. I guess I need to just start experimenting with the instant pot and see what happens. I had a rectangular one that I did use but there was a recall on it so replaced it with the typical round one. Really wish I would of just kept the other one.

wow! Missed a bit of time here...life and work got too busy. I certainly need to catch up.

I have an air fryer but have been less than impressed with it. I use my instant pot a lot though. The air fryer I have is just bulky and seems a hassle to use.

Cool Laura!

Kim--no worries.....I'm sure I could google it but it is nice to know what works for others!

Another day to try and get something done! I was so tired after the track meet yesterday (cheering is hard work) that I took an hour long nap! I still slept over 7 hours last night! Guess I needed it. Going strong today. Getting book work caught up then gotta get the laundry room done (should have been doing that instead of taking a nap!) Also, finish up in my bedroom and start sifting through pics for graduation. This is so tough because then I have the cry time....ugh! Why does time go so fast??? Anyway, have a great day everyone!

I had a choice about what appliance I wanted to add to my already crowded kitchen. Instant Pot was one and the other was an air fryer. Decided to get a toaster oven that can be used as an air fryer, broiler, oven, convection oven etc. Multi-function and good size for 2 people. Still learning my way around the air fryer, but it is nice to heat things up without having to heat up my full-size oven.

Welcome to the Ewok Village! "A cooking fire is located at the center, where meat is roasted on a spit and soups boil in clay pots."

Sounds like we're going to be grilling and using our instant-pot this week. What's on your menu plan this week?

Good luck, Busy Bees! I'll send some sunshine your way too! We're in the upper 60's this week with some clouds. We might be getting a little bit of rain on Monday too. Our weather is awful! LOL

As long as we keep showing up, we will win!

I have a long list of to do's with getting ready for graduation. Also have a basketball awards party in 2 weeks to print certificates for. I just need to start and keep going and quit fretting about it all. We got the menu planned and I asked for help! I know.....I don't usually do that! I made a budget and now to get some pictures done and a video. So can't believe I will soon only have the little guy left. And I will have to drive him everywhere again. ugh..... didn't plan that very well. lol!

In the meantime, they say possible snow again for the weekend......really it just needs to be spring and the snow can go! I do not enjoy sitting at track meets in the cold and we have one on Monday. Orchestra concert tonight and then getting lots done this weekend!

Have a great one everyone!

OK Brenda - too cute of a pic! Love it!

We understand busy, but I too do much better when I'm actually active. My new class is a time consuming one - have done one similar to it already and I know the time commitment but I will be trying to do my best to be here every day. You all have been great to keep things going while I've went back to school. There is light at the end of this tunnel and I have a 6 week break this summer so I'm looking forward to that. Then next year, you will have me back full time.

I haven't seen any all the way through. I've seen bits of some. My boys are HUGE fans though so I will get my inspiration from their love of Star Wars!

I have lots to do this month with graduation at the end of it but I am going to try and check in here once a day. I truly do so much better when I'm plugged in with you all. I need to take the me time so I can win!

Have a great day!

I've seen every Star Wars movie. When my hubby and I were first dating we saw the first Star Wars movie. When our son was young, they re-released the first 3 and he got hooked! Family fun!

May the 4th be with you!

Never watched a Star Wars movie in my life. My grandkids have. Clayton (12) told me May 4th is National Star Wars Day - he said "May the 4th be with you"

Cold and snow flurries here in northern South Dakota today. Brrrr

Welcome to the forest moon of Endor. The Ewoks have been gracious enough to invite us to spend the month of May amongst the treetops at Bright Tree Village. They know that we can use the force to defeat the evil Death Star and bring balance back to the universe.

The village is built within the trees of Endor and fifteen meters above the ground, where nest-like bunches of thatched huts housing nearly 200 Ewoks cling to evergreen trees. The village center includes communal meeting areas, along with homes for tribal elders and Chief Chirpa's family, including the Council of Elders. There are large huts for extended families huddled along the outer edges of the village. The village is connected through a series of rope ladders, bridges, vines, and catwalks. Despite the vast majority of villagers inhabiting the upper forest canopy, bachelors maintain small huts below the village proper, where they kept watch for even greater dangers.

The village's upper canopy is utilized by watchers to alert the village of marauding gorax and condor dragons, and is illuminated by fires and torchlights during the night. The bark of the conifer trees surrounding Bright Tree village are not only fire resistant, but make for a good insect repellent. Their boughs are used to make excellent spears, bows, slingshots, glider frames, and catapult arms. Gliders can also be launched from the canopy to patrol the lands and valleys beyond the immediate confines of the settlement. Following traditional Ewok houses, huts in Bright Tree Village are warm and cozy inside. A cooking fire is located at the center, where meat is roasted on a spit and soups boil in clay pots. Storerooms of food and kindling are layered under the floor, while sleeping mats and furs are stacked in the lofts above. Wooden stools and baskets often littered the area, and Ewok hoods, capes, and tools are hung on the walls.

Despite spending much of their time in the trees, inhabitants of Bright Tree Village had to descend to the forest floor to forage for berries, gather herbs, and hunt. Some Ewoks such as the Warrick family maintained huts and lodges on the ground. So take your pick of huts. Commune with the Ewoks and fellow First Steppers and lets save the universe together.
