I just haven't been able to think of a catchy title for my blog the past 2 days. Oh well, at least you know what day it is now!!

We are having flooding all over Montana, but I don't think there is the loss of life like in Joplin, Missouri. I watched the news last night and couldn't believe how many people have died. I used to live about a hour from Joplin when I was in high school. We referred to it as "Tornado Alley", because if a tornado was going to hit, it would hit Joplin. I really feel for the whole city. It is in shambles. Closer to home we have about 150 flood evacuees staying at one of the local colleges. They are not able to go home and the freeway is closed in Hardin, because it is flooded. If anyone wants to go to Sheridan, Wyoming, from here they have to take a major detour. And the forecast is calling for more rain. It is usually so dry here...not this year!! I would ask for prayers for those who are unable to get to their homes and for those who have lost someone in Joplin, Missouri. I am looking for clothes to donate...and guess what...I have some!! I have some really nice jeans. Too bad I gave away a bunch about a week ago. There is a lady in town...not far from me...who has started gathering clothes and is giving them to whomever wants or needs them. I think that is where the rest of my pants are going!! What a good cause!! emoticon Her name is Jamie Porter...now I just have to find her address on St. John's Avenue.

I have gone over my fat grams for several days...but under my calories. Must be all the taco salads I ate over the weekend!! I don't usually eat ground beef...and that really raised the fat grams. I have still lost weight, so not all is lost. I did pretty well eating some place other than my home!! I just have to watch m y portion sizes!!

Today is my last DPP weekly class and now we will go monthly for 6 months. And Thursday is my last exercise class...but that doesn't worry me as I am back in the pool!! It felt so good yesterday!! I hadn't exercised all weekend...so I was getting a little stiff. I did some walking...but not at a fast pace. Anyway, I have to figure in some exercise on the weekends...and if the weather had been nicer Paula and I could have gone for a nice walk. It was nice on Sunday...but it was a busy day and then I drove back to Billings, so no time to exercise that day.

Busy day planned for today...9 am DPP Nutrition Class, 10 am Exercise Class, 11 am Volunteer at PLUK until 3 pm, 3 pm library to return some materials, 4:30 pm I have a friend from church coming to look at my car...I have a piece of plastic dragging on the bottom of my car....probably helped by all the pot holes I went over between Bridger and Frannie, Mt, over the weekend!! He thinks he can tack it up so it doesn't drag anymore. I didn't even notice it, until I was almost home. And it is not a very big piece...just a little noisy!!

Well, it is almost time to have breakfast and I think I will close this blog. I have gone all over with it today. Oh well, guess I had a lot on my mind!!!

I hope you have a great day...and remember...it is what you make it!!
