Too cute Stephanie! The casts just look part of her costume.

Snowy and cold yesterday so our count was about third of normal. Hope my coworkers like candy! Have to get it out of sight.

Hi new girl! I’m Laura. I started this group a long time ago. I turned 57 this year. Not able to have kids but did fostering for a time. Now have 3 fur babies that I spoil. Work full time and have been going to school for the past 4 years so I haven’t been on as much as I should be. Finishing my MBA in December. Start my last class next week so a frantic finish and then I’ll be back to SP like normal. Live in Iowa and am known as the team’s diva.

It isn't what we say about our blessings, but how we use them.

Baizley looks adorable!

I wore a black Halloween shirt that I decorated a long time ago with pumpkins and Trick or Treat on it. I handed out candy while hubby rested his back. We had about 65 kids and it's a nice night in the low 50's. Didn't open the bag of candy until tonight and only had one fun size Almond Joy for a treat!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Hi, Stephanie and everyone else!

Is it time for the unmasking yet? Here're some clues as to who I am:

1. I am 62 years old.
2. I've been married to my best friend for 42 years.
3. I have 3 grown sons, 2 of whom are married, but no grandchildren yet.

Hello friends! Happy Halloween! I'm jealous of you all having trick-or-treaters. In the 26 years I've been married, we've gotten MAYBE a total of ten trick-or-treaters. I don't know why people around here don't do that anymore. We always took the boys, but never in our community. We went to my sister-in-law's house. She lived in a huge subdivision where everyone gave out candy. The kids loved it.

Nothing new to report from my neck of the woods. Miss Baizley had her second casting yesterday, and she did good. We're seeing her this Sunday, and I can't wait. I haven't held her since last week, and I sure have missed cuddling with her. Matthew is coming home this weekend too. He hasn't seen her in two weeks, and it's been so hard on him.

Jill - I see you're having fun in Florida. When will you leave for home?

Brenda - Which Hallmark Christmas movies did you watch? I've been trying to decide on which ones to watch. I hope your husband is feeling better.

Laura - Enjoy your week without homework! You deserve it! Butterball Boot Camp sounds perfect!

Dee - Good for you getting some exercise on the playground equipment! It looks like so much fun!

Wendi - It takes an hour to drive to Laken's house, and I usually bring some 100-calorie snack packs, fruit, and some pudding cups or fruit cups with me so I don't cave in to fast food. Would those work for the games? Oh, and four games in one day?? WOW! I agree...that's too much.

Kim - LOVE the pictures! They are so adorable!

My_Own_Woman - Welcome to the group! Just jump on in here and make yourself at home. I'm Stephanie, and I'm 49 years old. I've been married almost 26 years to my best friend Shawn, and we have two boys, Matthew (22) and Jacob (18). Matthew and his wife, Laken, made us grandparents October 10th with our beautiful granddaughter, Baizley Renee. I work from home (author and freelance writer), and I live in Mississippi. Tell us a little bit about yourself!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Stephanie

We froze our tookies off! Leo and I gave up after about half hour. Lukie, Papaw, Mommy and Daddy stayed out for an hour. Leo and I went home and passed out candy. It was 37 and the wind was fierce. I will post pics tomorrow.

The cold and snow are reducing the number of trick or treaters this year. I need it to pick up so I can get rid of all this candy

No costume for this girl......I'm just here for the candy! LOL! Just kidding! I didn't even buy any this year. Hopefully I can get out of here before the trick or treaters show up. We always go to my in-laws for Halloween.

Kim- such cuties! I'm sure they will have a blast trick or treating!

Brenda- OUCH! for your hubby! Hope he feels better soon!

Jill- We did get a dusting of snow overnight. It is just the wind that is so cold. I'm not sure I could deal with the humidity though. Hope you are having a great time!

I am plugging along. Still behind but feeling more confident that I will catch up! Making my to do lists! Have a great day, everyone!

Love the park Dee - that would be a great workout.

Stephanie the wreath is so pretty. Are you getting any Baizley snuggles lately?

Brenda I too wish my mom and sister lived closer but they are both in South Dakota.

Wendi it has been 15 and lots of snow in Colorado. Been in the 80s here in Florida but so darn humid. Guess because I am from S. Dakota and front range of Colorado now, I too much prefer the open plains. I just think it so pretty there and love to see cows grazing and farmers working the fields plus the little wild flowers that grow in the pastures are so hardy and yet so pretty. My 12 year old grandson plays BB and has practice every morning at 5:30 (yikes). His games for tonight have been canceled due to the snow.

Laura you do such a great job with this team and with your hectic work, school and personal life it is so much appreciated.

Kim make sure we get pictures of the littles at Halloween.

Tracy are you ok out there?

Hey everyone!

Geez! I don't know how the days fly by so fast! I thought I was prepared for basketball but 4 games in 1 day is too much. We were all exhausted! and our bodies hurt.....us old people from sitting on bleachers all day and the young one from running so much! They won 2 and lost 2. Pretty good start to the season though. I really need to get better organized. How does it seem some have it all together!?? Anyway, this week, of course something going on every evening but nothing on the weekend so I will get my house done, the yard (leaves and apples) cleaned up and hopefully a bathroom painted. I won't have any weekends after that to prep for Thanksgiving so I need to be organized. I will be working on my planner, budget and grocery list this week. I can do this!! Plus, I have to double down on taking care of myself and eating/exercising even with basketball games. Any tips for easy to take snacks/ light meals or even eating out?? ( I am not one to eat a salad EVERY meal)

Stephanie- I LOVE the wreath! I still have my spring flowers(fake ones) by my front door. Need to change that! Baizley is so precious! I will keep her in my prayers.

Dee- love the playground workout! You keep up the great job of getting in your steps! You rock!!

Jill- I'm with you on the trees! I like trees but a few here and there. The wide open plains are definitely my preference. Hope you are enjoying warmer temps. It is COLD here today....19 degrees but feels like 3 and there are a few snow flurries as well. ugh!

Brenda--I wish my mom and sis were in the same town. We would be doing stuff together all the time too. I'm so glad you have that time! Don't take it for granted! Puzzles--love them too!

Laura--It won't be long and you will be done and then you will have extra time. How is the job going? Settling in?

I better get some work done. Yesterday was a bit of a bust. Didn't get near enough done. Have a great day everyone!

Hello friends! Well...this is my first attempt at making a burlap Christmas wreath. Ill probably rearrange it a thousand times before Im satisfied with it. Definitely didnt inherit my moms floral design skills. (She worked in a florist almost 40 years before she retired last year).



Ill come back later to catch up on the posts.

Laura - Hope you enjoyed your shopping break! So glad you get a light homework week!

Kim - Hope you had fun at the football party!

Dee - Great job at doing fun exercise in the park! That's the kind I love!

Belinda and I went to Mom's house to work a puzzle with her (1000 pieces of a beautiful cove and village in Greece). We got 2/3rds done! Mike was helping Kevin lay his rock patio, then joined us for dinner. Father son project fun!

Kim, those little boys of yours are keeping you young and active!

Paul and I went to a park to go for a walk. It was early morning and there wasn't anyone else around. I played on the equipment. Between the walk and the playground, I was active for 90 minutes and it never felt like a "workout."



Yes, I crossed the tires.



Can't go over it -- Can't go under it -- Have to crawl through it. Yes, I did.

Oh, Baizley in her little casts so hard to put a baby through that, but like you said she won't remember later on. Maybe Baizley helped in Jacob's decision to go to college. My nephew put no effort into grade school and high school, but he loves college.

emoticon Counting down with you Laura! You've worked so hard for so long... you deserve a party!

emoticon Nice job Brenda on making your super healthy low calorie pizza. Love the Hallmark movies!

Many prayers for Baizley. Such a sweet little angel.

Been working on my final project all day so I'm going to miss earning my first ghost this month.

Let's try to be as active as possible this weekend. I have some shopping tomorrow morning and then back at the homework. Can't wait until Wednesday when I have a week with almost no homework.

Take care everyone - just quickly posting so I can go to bed.

Stephanie - She's so beautiful! So sweet and angelic...seeing her in the casts just makes you want to scoop her up and cuddle her!

Jill - Sounds like you're having a wonderful time! Enjoy!!

Today my sis and I went shopping (surprise!). We picked up our mom, came back to our house, and made our own pizzas for dinner! Plus bagels and a pumpkin pie using the same WW dough....yum! Now we're watching Hallmark Christmas movies (yep...the new season is here!)

Ahh poor baby - she sure is adorable

Tennessee was pretty. I am not a big fan of all the trees in the East. Makes me feel a little claustrophobic and you cant see anything when you are driving down the road.

We are in Savannah GA tonight and headed to Jacksonville FL tomorrow

Hello friends! I hope you're all having a good weekend! I didn't get to my WW meeting this morning because it was storming and the wind was awful. Lots of people still without power in some areas. It takes an hour to get to my meeting, and I wasn't about to risk my life for it, so no WW for me today. I spent most of the morning cleaning branches off my front porch and out of my yard, and I still have a lot more to do.

Baizley went through her first casting a few days ago (for her clubbed feet). Laken said it doesn't seem to be bothering her. She'll get recasted every week for eight weeks, and she'll wear a metal brace on her legs every night while she's sleeping until she's four years old. Breaks my heart to see her put through all of this, but she's in good hands, and I know she probably won't remember any of it. Just please continue to pray for her - and Matthew and Laken too.

Oh! I have more news. Jacob (my youngest) has decided he doesn't want to be a Marine. He told us a couple of days ago, and we were really shocked because he's been hardcore about joining the Marines FOREVER. He said his heart wasn't in it anymore, and that he's been praying really hard about it, and he's decided he wants to go to college. He became interested in sports therapy after his knee surgery last November and the many months of physical therapy he went through. He'd like to pursue something in that field, like an athletic trainer or physical therapist. I'm SO HAPPY I don't have to worry anymore over him fighting in some foreign country, but I do worry that he won't take college seriously, because he's never cared for school. I guess we shall see. Hopefully, this passion he's feeling for it right now will make him want to do his best. I'll keep you posted.

Brenda - That's awesome about the new furniture! I'm ready to ditch our two recliners and get a sectional with recliners on each end. I've always wanted one. I'm glad your heel is feeling better.

Wendi - You sure have been a busy bee lately. Were you able to get some cleaning done today?

Laura - I'm so sorry I haven't been participating in the other threads. This month has been so crazy, but I'll do better next month. Thank you for all you do to make this place feel like "home". I'm sorry about your friend's mom. *HUGS* Way to go finishing that project! Good luck with finishing the final one! I know you're ready for a break.

Kim - Your time at the pumpkin patch sounds like so much fun! I can't wait to do things like that with Baizley.

Jill - Sounds like you're having fun on your adventure! My mom was in Franklin, TN last weekend, and she said it's so beautiful there this time of year.

Dee - I'm so proud of you tracking and getting your exercise! You're doing GREAT! Love that bulletin board!

Have a wonderful weekend!

I'm alive! (sounds like something from a Frankenstein movie)

Sorry about the MIA. Finished the project for Tuesday and now swamped with my final project for next week. Then it is down to 5 weeks for my very last class. Yes the countdown is happening. About 75% of the people in class with me right now finish their degrees in Dec so we are doing a countdown at the end of each class.

You all are sounding busy too. Was looking at the calendar and it is hard to believe the month is almost over. Time to start getting ready for the holidays!

I'm going to try to catch up the threads while I have a moment. Another busy weekend. After Tuesday night, I can breathe until the 5th. So be thinking about what you want to do for our November boards. There is still a thread on the Welcome forum for ideas.

Jill, I wish I knew you were going to be so close sooner, I would have met you somewhere. Would be awesome to meet some of you ladies in person. What fun we could all have if we were to get together.

Laura, the count down has begun. I know you are super excited to be done with all that studying.

Whew Wendi, I totally remember those crazy days. And I am sure I will have them again when the boys get older. But I am worn out for you my dear.

Brenda, oh the fun we have. We played games and had Beyblade battles and then cuddled on the couch to watch the Grinch for the 2 millionth time. Then we had to color so a full evening we had. So glad that your heels are feeling better so had when your foundation hurts. (my mamaw use to say our feet were our foundation).

I think I may go shopping this evening. I need something constructive to do lol
Have a great day ladies.

Hi Everyone!!

Kim - Have fun with those stinky boys!

Dee - You're doing fantastic with your exercise! I'm still not doing as many steps. I'm going back to the gym next week. Try to track tomorrow to get restarted again. I just did mine while watching TV. Is the trip to Vegas with hubby? Sounds fun!

Wendi - I'm tired just reading what you do in a day! LOL. Try to get some "me time" in!

Jill - Enjoy all those fun places! I love road trips!

My heel is feeling better. I'm going back to the gym next week...I want to make sure my bursa is okay and I can wear my shoes! I'll get more steps in going to Costco tomorrow!

Let's finish this week strong!

Hey everyone!

I'm still plugging along! Had a meeting Monday night, bible study Tuesday night and serving meals at church tonight. Tomorrow is my night at home! Which I will be sorting our basketball shirt order for the families of the team. Then I will distribute them on Friday night. The weekend looks crazy as well. Trying to get SOMETHING done in my house on Saturday as I think I convinced my hubby to go do the clean up and put away at the lake while I stay home and clean! Basketball starts on Sunday. 1st tourney of the season --at least 3 games possibly 4. Then we have 4 more tourneys after that before Christmas! So yeah, not going to get any less busy so I better get it together!

Brenda- I love moving the furniture and pics around for a new look!

Dee- great job on the walking! I have been bad about tracking this week as well. I feel like I'm holding on by a thread!

Kim- have fun with your stinky boys!

Jill- sounds like the trip is enjoyable so far! Have fun at the race!

Laura- Let the countdown begin! So excited for you!

I really need to get organized. It seems I get a lot of things done but it is so random some days. I need some ordinary in my days! Have a great one!

emoticon Hi Wendi, Stephanie, Kim and everyone else!

emoticon I've been eating out way too much and making poor choices. I know that tracking is the best way for me to lose weight, but I haven't been doing it. On a positive note, I've been exercising every day. I walked on my lunch break, in the rain, and when I got back a teacher had sent me a note saying how impressed she was that I didn't let the weather stop me.

Laura - Glad you got your project finished. You must be ecstatic over school coming to an end!

Kim - So much fun with the kiddos! I'm looking forward to that.

I changed furniture, plants and pictures around for a new look. I filled in nail holes and did touch up paint too. Much better!

Sounds like a blast Kim. Loved doing the pumpkin patch. Right of passage to Halloween.

Thanks for the thought - was the mom of one of my co-workers so was there more as support to her.

Project is done. My partner and I finished it tonight. I have a quick form to fill out tomorrow and then I'm ready for class. Only six more weeks after this one. I'm in countdown mode. Start my final class in a couple of weeks.

Off to do the posts so I can get some sleep tonight. Rock and roll ladies!

Hi ladies. I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Wendi, glad you got the furnace in for your son. I am sure he is appreciative. Little ones are so fun. They love everything it seems like. LOL

Brenda, I would love to see a pic of your new furniture. Sounds beautiful.

Laura, sorry about your loss.

We took the boys to the pumpkin patch on Saturday. Had so much fun they had a tractor pulling cars that Leo totally loved. He loved it so much he rode like 20 times. Lukie liked them but no where near that much. He had a blast going through the corn maze though.
Then yesterday hubby and I went hiking. Man I missed that and the leaves are finally starting to turn here. I finally found fall!

Then today hits and its back to work BOO not any fun at all LOL

Love the idea of blue leather. Nice.

Hi everyone. Wendi - you need to catch your breath girl! Whew! emoticon

Sorry about the IA - got caught with an unexpected funeral and still having to work on my presentation for tomorrow. Couple late nights on the computer and I didn't have the energy left for posting. Am off to update the threads!!

We are taking the Oct challenge to Nov. 1st so two more weeks to hit your weight loss goal for the month! Let's finish strong!!!

Good Morning all!

Back to the grind! Got the furnace put in our son's place and heat tape/insulation as well as moved the water heater to a "warmer" place. We got the windows covered with plastic and the roof sealed. He should be set for winter. Our middle son came from college and helped as well so it was good to have the family together again. Sunday Mike, Jack & I went to our niece & nephew's 6th birthday party. So fun to see how excited they get. Still like toys and kid stuff! Fun! We were very tired after running all over though! My eating was NOT good so I need to get back to it today! I need to be better about that! ugh!

Brenda-your new furniture sounds comfy!

How's everyone doing this week? Let's LOSE some more POUNDS!! WE CAN DO IT!!

Thank you for the post, Brenda! I needed that today. I gained one pound at my WW meeting this morning, but I honestly thought it would be worse, so I'm not stressing over it. I'll have that pound off next week.

YOU HAVE FAT, YOU ARE NOT FAT

I have been telling myself this exact thing for a long time. But my inner self doesn't want to listen. I have been big all my life and I think my brain is afraid to be any other way.

That was a good post. Thanks for the extra motivation just in time for the weekend. I can relate to the "don't expect success to be a straight line." Mine has been all spikes and curves and valleys, but I'm still here.

Motivation for everyone! This an old blog posted by another Sparker, WARRIORSUE .

YOU HAVE FAT, YOU ARE NOT FAT

I've adjusted my weight ticker for the sake of full disclosure. Saying that I am up a certain amount of pounds doesn't really tell you enough. I got to hide a little, in my maintenance. But I'm ready to do better, so it's important to expose everything to the light. Secrets and shame hide in the dark,and these few re-gained pounds absolutely do not need to be hidden or felt shame about. I have come such a long way.

In the past, these extra little pounds would affirm my worst thoughts, that I was never going to lose weight and keep it off. That I was lazy. A failure. A disgrace. Today? They are just numbers, really. I don't have a lot of emotion around them. They don't tell me who I am. All they tell me is what I have done or not done. I already know who I am, and who I am has literally nothing to do with those numbers on the scale!

This is so fascinating to me, how a person who has had a belief since they were 13, can now have a different thought, a different way of experiencing themselves and their life that calls the other, a lie. I had fat. I was not fat. Even if people told me with quiet desperation that I was.

I already know what I have to do to get the weight back down. Without all of the emotions crowding in, it becomes math. It becomes science. Calories in. Calories out. "How I feel" about it is irrelevant. What I am willing and able to do with my body to attain a healthier weight is something I've already succeeded with, and I have NO DOUBT I will lose the weight again. No doubt. It's just a matter of, how much do I want it?

We shall see.

Start today. Challenge your thoughts. Make little changes that will give you big results. Don't expect success to be a straight line. Give yourself credit where it is due and don't beat yourself up, when you have chosen to do nothing to give yourself credit for.

You can do it.
You have fat.
You are not fat.

Kim - Hope you can figure out the financials so you don't have to keep doing them! What a pain!

Stephanie - So glad you're having lots of fun with Baizley! You have the right attitude for eating...just move forward!

I'm getting things done around the house. Tomorrow is bunco at my Mom's house and I'm making apple crisp for a dessert!

Good luck on weigh in everyone!

Good morning, friends! Just checking in for a few minutes before I go see my grandbaby. So excited! It takes an hour to get to Laken's house, so I don't get to visit as often as I'd like. I plan on getting as much lovin' as I can today to hold me over until I go back with Shawn this Sunday. Matthew is heading back to Huntsville Sunday night, and I know he's dreading it. I'm glad he doesn't have long there before he, Laken, and Baizley can be together in one place for good.

My diet has been off for a week now, with everything we've had going on. We've eaten out a lot since we've been on the road so much, and I'll probably have a gain at my WW meeting Saturday morning. I made the best choices with what was available to me, but I've gotten out of my routine, and I feel it too. Ugh. Oh well. If it's a gain, I'll just take it and move on.

Wendi - Sounds like you've got a lot of driving ahead of you this weekend too. Be safe out there! How did Jack do yesterday? I realllllllly hate going to the dentist. Love your positive attitude! Yes, you CAN do this!

Kim - That sticker is SO cool! Thank you for the yogurt recipe. I'll definitely try that some time. Ahh...farts and boogers. Nothing like being surrounded by boys. After four brothers and two sons, I've gotten my share for sure. LOL. Good luck with finishing those financials! You've got this!

Brenda - OUCH! I hope your heel gets better real soon. Hopefully, the new shoes will help. *Hugs*

Dee - Did you get your aunt's furniture moved? I agree with Laura's salad tip. Just do your best.

Laura - Way to go showing that fire drill who's boss! Proud of you!

Jill - I hope you have a wonderful trip! Take lots of pictures for us - and include pictures of the house renovations too!

Have a great day!

Stephanie

Thanks Wendi I love how it turned out that is for sure. Now if I can find a good one of Lukie (he squints when he smiles) I will be good to go to put them on a shirt for papaw. Ugh these financials are literally going to be the death of me. I feel so bad that they arent done but I honestly have tried and tried to get them the way they want them and no dice. If they would take them the way I have them they have been done for months. UGH Poor Jack. I feel for him having to go the dentist. I dont like em.

Thanks Jill, it turned out great. Finally. UGH Packing stinks but you will come home to a beautiful newly redone house. How exciting. Have a great time my dear.

Oh Laura, I worried about you yesterday. So glad you survived. But so proud of you! That is awesome! I knew you would be fine but I was worried still. Lol

Brenda, crossing my fingers that your new tennis shoes helps your heel. My day went as smooth as could be. Missy sent me a message to tell me soccer was cancelled so I got to pick the boys up and go home and play. I love love being so close to them. And we all know family comes before work so did I leave my computer up and running to go pick them up early? You betcha sure did. LOL It will still be there when I get there this morning!

Have a great day ladies. Its Friday Eve

Dee - Hope your aunt's furniture move went smoothly! I'm sure you walked off your food!

Laura - Woohoo on making it through the fire drill and all those steps! You did great! That's why I pushed myself to climb a Mayan ruin...I never thought I could with my knees!

Kim - Hope your busy day went smoothly!

Wendi - Hope Jack feels okay. Kevin had 3 sets of braces, then finally jaw surgery as a young adult for an underbite. He's gone through a lot, but in the end it's worth it!

Jill - Have a wonderful trip! I wish my house was redone while I was on vacation!

I just bought new gym shoes, but my heel started hurting after I wore some sandals I had on. The back strap was loose and I walked a lot that day...it probably irritated my heel. I've had this before... it's sore and annoying! Oh well, it'll go away eventually. Good thing we have warm weather - backless sandals it is!

Renovations and an excursion. Hope you can relax while you are gone. That is a lot going on! Enjoy!


I survived the emergency drill. I'm still breathing heavy, my legs feel like Jello, my ear aches from the wind (it was windy and 40 degrees outside) and my back has stiffened up. But I still did it and lived to tell the tale.

It may not be pretty when we push ourselves, but in the end - we have it in us! Let's do this!!!

Love it Kim - that is so cool

Brenda OUCH hope you find some shoes that give you more comfort.

Wendi you don't seem to catch a break weather wise. It has been beautiful fall days here in Colorado. Meeting up for a NASCAR race would be awesome.

Laura I would probably be having an anxiety attack thinking of doing all that today but sure you will rock it.

Haven't been posting too much in other areas of this team as been so busy packing up the house for the remodel, packing for our little excursion and trying to get everything done in the office that I need to do. Leaving in a couple hours. emoticon

Good Morning!

Kim- LOVE the sticker! So cute! Good luck getting those financials figured out! and hope the doctors appt goes ok.

Laura- hope the emergency drill goes well. Take it slow and steady and you will be fine. And you will have a ton of steps in!

Dee- glad you are getting your Aunt settled. You are aware of what you are eating so just eat less. And Laura's idea of taking a salad with is a great one! Don't let it all derail you. Eat lighter tomorrow.

Brenda- ouch! hope it heals soon. I agree----shoe shopping is in order!

Jack only has a half day of school today and then he has to go get 2 teeth pulled. They are baby teeth so really shouldn't be too bad. This kid has so much crowding in his mouth and the permanent teeth are there but the baby ones just won't fall out. Plus he has a mouth full of braces. $$$ ugh! Too bad he doesn't have a BIG mouth like his momma! lol!

Didn't get much done on my office yesterday so that is the plan for today. Hoping the phone gives me a little break! Have a great day all!

Thanks ladies. It was a labor of love let me tell you I was so excited when I figured it out. Lol

Wendi, you really need a weather break that is for sure goodness snow and now rain. I feel for you. We are finally getting some rain here this morning it is much needed.

Brenda, ouch sorry you are having to deal with that. A good reason though. Now to buy new shoes!

Dee, No cricut master here. Just learning things I really must do lol. Loving my new hobby that is for sure. You got this my dear. And one day wont derail you. Just be careful moving Aunties things so you dont get hurt. And yay she is finally going to be able to get settled. That will help you all feel a little better.

Laura, You will concur those stairs today! I know you will. Slow and steady wins the race just keep that in mind. Great idea getting a backpack to put everything in. Makes going up and down them a lot easier. I try to use the stairs wherever I can.

I have a early morning 7:30 doc appt then back to work on those stupid financials that are giving me fits still GRR Have a great day all.

take a salad to go with all that pasta! Wouldn't want to move furniture. Yuck. Will always find a way to afford movers.

Work is going well. Starting to settle in but still learning a lot. Nothing moves at a fast pace in a large company. And yes, I'm still taking the stairs. I got smart a few weeks ago and bought a backpack. Throw my lunch bag and purse in it so that I can have my hands free to use the railings so I can walk up and down the stairs one after another instead of one at a time. Not looking forward to Wednesday morning. We are having an emergency drill and we have to take the stairs and then walk across a very long parking lot, stand around for a long time and then having to walk all the way back plus the stairs again. I'll earn my ghost tomorrow for sure.

Brenda - this diva says heal quickly and then go shoe shopping!

YEAH on getting rid of that white stuff. I'm hoping that we are done mowing, but we too have green grass.

Kim - that is AMAZING! Way cool!

Kim - the sticker is so cool. You are a Cricket Master.

Wendi - a positive attitude is the best strategy! emoticon

Laura - I'm glad you had a lighter week of homework. How's the new job? Still taking the stairs?

We are moving my aunt's furniture tomorrow night. They have a freight elevator for us to use, but it's still going to be hard moving a lift chair and the mattress. Everything else shouldn't be too hard. We're going right after work so dinner will be late. Probably going to grab fast food on the way home or go out for pizza with everyone. It might be a high calorie day because we're having a pasta pot luck at work tomorrow.

Wendi - Woohoo on the positive attitude! You're doing great - keep it up!

Kim - That's so cool! Great job!

I'm limping from a swollen bursa on the back of my foot (usually called a 'pump bump'). I've had it before... it's usually caused by wearing shoes that rub the back of your heel. Since I've lost weight, my shoes are looser, so I'm sure that caused it. Hope it goes away quickly! I can't wear my gym shoes!

I have to show you all what I did with my cricut this evening. I am so excited. I have tried and tried to do this for a month and finally figured it out. I turned my Leo into a sticker. I am still trying to find a great picture of Lukie to do. He squints when he smiles, so it's been hard to find one where he has eyes. LOL

Good Morning!

Woke up with a super positive attitude today! I WILL DO THIS!!

Kim- sounds like a super fun day! Oh the farting is still funny when they are 12! and 22! lol!

Brenda- glad you had a great time celebrating and way to go to get right back on plan! You ROCK!

The snow is melting because now it is raining! Good grief, I could use some sun! The grass is still green under the snow and hopefully it will dry out enough so we can mow it before REAL winter gets here! LOL!

Off to get things done while I feel like it! Have a great day!!

Stephanie - Glad you're getting lots of cuddle time in with Baizley!

Wendi - Glad your snow is melting! I'll send some sun over for the busy week you have!

Kim - Oh I'm used to boogers, farts, etc....I raised a boy! He's still that way. I can't wait until he's raising his son!

Laura - Glad school slowed down a bit for you! Take some time for yourself!

We had a weekend of celebrating, so this week I'm on track and going lean! Let's have a fantastic week!

Sounds like the best day Kim. Class tomorrow night so I'm going to get the postings done and hit the hay.

Stephanie,So excited for you getting to spend time with the little one. Nothing in the world better than seeing your baby hold their baby. Yogurt... Its super simple. I have a yogurt button on my Instant Pot. All I do is put in a jug of Fair Life Milk (its extra pasteurized) and 2 tablespoons of a started yogurt. (Something Greek usually) hit the yogurt button and let it go. It takes about 8 hours to make. So I usually do it over night. Then when its done you put a couple wet paper towels in a strainer into a bowl, Let the whey drain for about a half hour. Dump it into a bowl and mix in whatever flavor pudding mix you like let it cool and you are good to go. So yummy. I made cheesecake last night.

Laura, glad your baby is doing alright. Give him extra loving. And YAY to no cone of shame.

Wendi, is the snow gone yet?

Dee, how are you and how is Auntie?

Well I have spent the day with the boys today. I took the day off because Missy is a daycare teacher at their school and she had a in service day. So they couldnt go today. I have been beaten on, snotted on, the boys favorite thing in the world farted on. And we played so hard today I am worn the pluck out. LOL and I totally enjoyed every minute of it. All day today at random times one of the 2 would yell hey RaRa, I would say yes and would hear I Love you that right there makes it all worth while. Brenda, see what you get to look forward too? Farts and buggers. LOL

Good Morning!

Stephanie- so glad you are getting in lots of Grandma time!

Laura- glad Hercules is doing well. My cat, Lily is trying to help me type this morning. Well actually, she is trying to steal my paper clips! Silly cat! She is not impressed with the snow. She likes to take a walk through the neighborhood every day but is staying close to home now!

It has already started melting and I'm thankful it isn't below zero! It is actually 30 right now so hoping the sun comes out so it can melt this stuff a little faster! We have to go put a furnace in my son's mobile home this weekend. Got his going but it is in rough shape. There is teachers convention this week so no school for Jack on Thursday and Friday. And then we have to go to my niece and nephews birthday party on Sunday. So lots of driving this weekend too!

So I better get some things done around here! Got started deep cleaning my office. Gonna finish that today and then tackle the bathroom! Have a great day everyone!!

Good morning, friends! I'm sorry I've been MIA so much, but I've been busy spoiling my new grandbaby. They were discharged from the hospital Saturday around noon, and they're both doing great. They have doctor appointments this morning, so I'll be visiting tomorrow and taking my mother with me, since she hasn't held Baizley yet. Matthew is doing good, but going a little crazy staying with his in-laws. It's such a strange feeling watching my child take care of HIS child. He was really nervous the first couple of days, especially when he had to change her diapers and clothes, but he's doing much better now and getting the hang of it. Makes my heart swell.

I knew I wouldn't be able to go to my WW meeting Saturday morning, so I went Thursday night instead, and I lost 3.6 pounds, bringing my total loss to 35.4 pounds. I'm afraid this Saturday's weigh-in won't be good, because we were on the road a lot this weekend, and we had too much fast food. I made the best choices with what was available, and I've been back on track since yesterday, so hopefully it won't be too bad.

Brenda - You're next! I can't wait until your grandson gets here! I know you'll have SO much fun spoiling him rotten! Happy belated 39th anniversary! I hope you had a magical time celebrating. We'll celebrate our 26th in January. Hard to believe it's been that long.

Wendi - I love the pictures, but I'm sorry you've been dealing with the snow. We FINALLY got some cooler weather. It's been in the low 70's since Saturday morning, and it feels wonderful. I love the cooler weather, but I can't imagine living in your weather conditions. I'm sure I'd get sick of the snow REAL quick. LOL.

Jill - Your trip sounds like so much fun! I hope you have a blast! Take pictures of your house renovations when you get back. I bet it will look beautiful.

Dee - I'm sorry your aunt's move was delayed a bit. I know it must have been stressful. Hang in there, my friend. *HUGS* That instant pot round steak recipe sounds delicious. I may have to try that sometime. Way to go making a recipe plan!

Kim - Happy belated birthday to Lukie! Yogurt in the Instant Pot? I've never heard of such. How do you make it?

Laura - You had a dungeon for Halloween? What was that like? I'm glad Hercules is doing okay. Poor baby. Give him some snuggles from me. Shawn and Jacob are allergic to cats, so we can't have any around here, and I hate that. I'd love to have at least one.

Tracy - I'm sorry you feel bad. I hope you feel like a brand new woman after your surgery. *HUGS*

Wishing you all a great week!

Stephanie

Everyone with cold temps try to keep warm! We're in the mid-high 70's this week. Still wearing summer clothes!

Hope everyone had a good weekend. I picked up Hercules Saturday morning. He's doing well, but has wanted a lot of "mommy" time. Lots of cuddles and naps. but is doing well enough that I didn't have to put him in a cone. I figure he will be back to his active self in about a week.

It is definitely cool here this weekend. Have added a lot of soups to the meal plan for this week. Going to make this short tonight so I can get a decent night's sleep for a change. Will have to catch up on the homework tomorrow night.

Hi!
Yes Dee- i need to make small changes in my routine and make them habits!

Jill- how nice it will be to come home to a new house. So nice of your kids! Have fun tooling around in the motorhome. I wish i could meet you for the NASCAR race. Maybe some day!

We ended up with 11" total of the white stuff but it is sunny today and the wind has gone down....It is starting to melt a little bit. Won't be fun picking up leaves though....wet, soggy mess!

Got some cleaning done yesterday and need to get in and start on my office. Have a great day!

Been busy packing up my kitchen, living room and spare bedroom. The kids are going to paint, put in new cabinets, and new flooring while we are gone. Will come back to a new house.

After our little cold spell and snow the last 2 days have been wonderful. Went to my grandson's football game yesterday and then my daughter-in-law and 3 grandkids went shopping. It was a great day.

Stephanie that little girl is so adorable. Being a a grandma is the best.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend

Laura, so glad you dont have a ton of homework. And that you are able to get a little bit of metime in. How are you liking your Instant Pot? I just took a load of yogurt out of mine. I love it! How is your kitty? I know I cant believe Lukie is 5 either blows my mind how fast time is flying. Have you heard anything from Lisa? I think about her all the time.

Brenda, Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby. I love hearing these. So many times now kids go into marriage thinking that if it doesnt work no biggie. You and I both know it takes a lot of give and take to make a marriage work. I love hearing about people being married years and years it makes my heart smile! I hope you and your hubby spoil each other rotten this weekend. You both deserve it!

Jill, I am NOT ready for Kindergarten but Lukie sure is. He was so upset when he learned that he didnt get to go to a Big School when he turned 5. He goes to daycare and sees the bigger kids come in after school and thought he got to do that when he turned 5. Sounds like your sister had one heck of a day traveling. Goodness.

Wendi, We are definitely going to be busy with these parties that is for sure. Soccer at 10 then we have Lukies party from 2-4. Have to work tomorrow. Darn extensions. Oh goodness did you get that darn snow? I hope you didnt, I am truly not ready for the snow especially that amount.

Stephanie, What a beautiful little girl you have there. She is truly adorable! You stay and visit with her and catch up with us later. Priorities are def with that beautiful baby. We will all be here when you have time for us. LOL

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I am going to freeze at a soccer game (40 degrees) then going to watch my little ones bowl.

Hey all!

Happy Anniversary Brenda! emoticon

Jill- Oh I could see it being the wind. It is insane today. 25mph gusting to 40 right now only supposed to get worse! Sucks for her though......taking up the whole day!

Kim- Happy Birthday to Luke! Can't believe.....5 already! They grow up SO fast!! Sounds like some fun parties planned.

Dee- the round steak sounds good. Might have to give that a try.

Laura- glad your furbaby got taken care of. Poor thing! Do you have extra treats ready for him? Enjoy your weekend!

Stephanie--how's the new baby?

The wind is a blowing here but the second round of snow hasn't hit yet. It is snowing about 40 miles east of here and with the wind it is a full blown blizzard! Roads are closed for much of the eastern half of North Dakota. We are supposed to receive the wrap around snow beginning tonight and that is supposed to dump another 8-12" on us. Gotta love ND!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Love the baby photo Stephanie - Let the fun begin.

Wendi not so sure if it was snow or wind that caused their flight to be canceled. I know some flights were canceled in Denver due to wind. They can normally fly straight from Bismarck into College Station, TX where my nephew is in the Corps at Texas A&M but yesterday she had to go Aberdeen into Minneapolis then into Detroit and finally into Houston where they rented a car to drive up to College Station. Normally a 3 hour flight took all day.

Happy Birthday to Luke - they do tend to grow up way too fast. He will start kindergarten next year then. Oh my

Brenda 39 years is amazing - Happy Anniversary!! Enjoy your weekend.


Jill
