Lista, how fun. I used to dream about just getting in the car with no certain destination and cover the country. That was back in my younger day and now I don't think my kids would even allow it. My Dad lived in San Diego for a while and loved going out there to see him. Have fun and be safe.

NJJazz - thanks for sharing that video. I loved it.

Lynn - I just can't believe have fast things are moving. How exciting. Don't you just wonder how/why things happen and then things work out. It's amazing.

Margaret - yes I did just get back from a 2 week drive around the United States. I am so lucky to get to take advantage of some of the business trips my husband goes on. This trip to San Diego is just 3 days of business and then 7 days of fun. I am so looking forward to going somewhere with warmer weather. You sound like you are doing well with your foods. Sounded very yummy, yet healthy. Hope your knee heals up quickly.

Michele - glad to hear you are safe.

Sandy - tell your DGD congrats on being artsy. I love being crafty, artsy. That is my kind of thing.

Auntie - will this snow ever go away. We are supposed to get some flakes in the next couple days too. Yuck. Snow, snow go away. I did see a robin today. There's hope!

evening all:

Steve: Good luck wtih bowling have a fun time

Limastar- seemed like you had a really busy day

Mary- some days we just need a time out by ourselves I'm glad you enjoyed your walk/run with the dog

Margaret- I will be working at an Assistant living home. Today we learned all about Alzimers and she read a 180 page book. It was interesting. She told use that people who have signs of it they can't be told to do three things in a row - I think she was describing my hubby lololol -sorry RW.

Lista- have fun in San Diego. I wish it would get warm here we are expecting another 7-12 inches of snow on April 1st. We must be a fools to live in New England lololo.Last time we had snow on April 1st was 1997 when we topped 107inches of snow right now we are at 78 but we might top it tomorrow.

NJJAZZ- we really do rock.

Sandy - congrats on your DGD artwork.

Lynn- tomorrow on April 1st I actually start training the facility as the receptionist. I will know more of what I will be doing daily. I can't wait. I think I've been out of work so long it feels like a treat is coming my way. I just wish it wasn't entry level pay.

Well i'm watching Grey's Anatomy on tv and then heading to bed. Wonder what happens to Cally and the baby

Good night everyone

Hi all,
Steve- what a disappointment to come ready to bowl and no one else is there! The 3 free games are a good consolation prize anyway.

Brenda- wow! sure is a lot happening where you live- at least it's not dull!

Lista- Didn't you just get home not too long ago from a trip away? Maybe I have you confused with someone else. Well, either way Hope you have a good time on your trip to San Diago.

Lynn- good luck with DH new job- I think your right about the economy - it does seem to be picking up a bit- let's hope that it continues. Another move won't be much fun but it sure beats being jobless.

Michele- SO GOOD TO HEAR FROM YOU! glad you enjoyed your time with your parents although I can't say the weather was that agreeable for you. Basic sloppy March Michigan weather. Can you give us an update on conditions in Japan after the tsunami and now the nuke problems? We don't hear much about how the people (victims) of the tsunami are doing (help, reconstruction etc.) although there is a lot about the nuke plants. Nice to have you back.



Went to Dr. today- basically told me what I expected- rest, warm heat, knee support. He also gave me exercises to do (after I'm healed about 6-8 weeks) to strengthen the muscles around the knee so I don't have this problem again. so I'll be on the side line for a few weeks.

Been doing good food wise:

greek yogurt for breakfast with a little granola cereal sprinkled on top and 10 grapes.

lunch- sauteed chicken breast pieces on a taco wrap with lettuce, tomato and 1Tbsp low fat sour cream and a plum on the side.

Had Kettle corn popcorn for a snack this afternoon- yummy- I had never had that kind before. It's slightly sweet and salty and only 130 for 3.5 cups.

Oh, dinner tonight will be: creamy chicken wild rice soup- yummy.

Bye and take care.

Hi, Y'all,

DH is flying to WI tonight and will back tomorrow with another offer. Then we decide. He will start with either on 4/10/11. Not much time to get him packed and on the road. Maybe the economy is getting better, last year it took him 10 months to find a job.

Mary....The job in WI is near Milwaukee. The job in IL is about 60 miles from Chicago. You will have to post pics of your house when you get all the painting etc done. It is a lot of work, but painting makes such a huge difference in a room.

Margaret....It is very hard to be laid up, when you are used to being active. How long will you have to wait to exercise and ride again? I like your new pic.

Rosie....either move will be about 1000-1200 miles. Both companies have good relocation plans. I still love my job and I will stay here for 6 months or so and make sure the new job works out before I go.

AD....I too want more info on your new job. Are you a receptionist at a nursing home? Is it full time? I hope you like it. Orientation is always the hardest part.

Steve.....are you scaring away all your competition for the colored pin bowling night? lol It would be fun to take up bowling again. You may have just inspired me. Especially if I move to a cold climate....it would give me something to do in the winter. Thanks!! And when your pro circuit comes to each of our towns all your spark team members can come and cheer you on.

NJ....that is so great that we are # 2! Remember.........they say # 2 tries harder.

Lista.....We will decide on the jobs this weekend. He needs to let both places know Monday AM. It will be an adventure. Our life isn't boring that's for sure. We are very blessed to have these opportunities.

I need to get DH to the airport, and then on to work. Thanks for all the kind thoughts and prayers for us during this crazy time.

And especially thinking and praying for Mel.

Good Morning all! Have a rare day to myself. DGD's (6 & 2) with their mom for the next few days.

Have taken them to the library, nature center and for a walk in the valley the last 3 days. Tired them out so they both took afternoon naps. LOL. I could have used one myself but had other thngs to do while they slept.

Slept in til 7:30 this morning. Yeah! Did a 2 mile walk withmy Leslie Sansone DVD and have errands to run befor epicking up 11 yr old from school. She will be spending Sunday night and Monday with me while her mom has surgery.

Baked banana nut bread yesterday and it is almost gone thanks to the girls. They love it. So does DH. I had one slice. Been good sticking with watching what I put in my mouth even with GS cookies around.

Bonnie: Hope your back is feelling better.

AD: that was quite an orientation schedule for a receptionist position. Guess if it is in a nursing home have to know a little about everything and how to handle emergencies too.

Steve: You will have to get a new moniker. Bowling, golfing and all around handyman. You know a little about everything too.

Hope everyone gets back on their feet soon. This weather will change and being down will really be killing you. I know It does me and I just have little ones to contend with. They are not always co-operative for walks in the park, but a good game of hide and seek is always in order.

Have a great day all! emoticon

OH! PS One of our DGD's, (8) had her artwork placed in the state competition and she won 1st Place in her age group. We are so excited for her and of course I will be the bragging G-ma for awhile. LOL

LMK- I'm definitely going back into bowling and I've been researching tournaments that I can go and bowl in. I found out that I really need to establish a sanctioned average. Too bad this league I joined with my wife is not sanctioned. It has put me back a bit but I plan to join a sanctioned league this summer and then after I get 21 games under my belt, I'll be able to bowl this State tournaments and USBC tournaments. So, I have another couple of months before I can sign up. Even if I wanted to join the PBA, I would need an established average. Don't worry, I'll be on some kind of circuit soon and I'm looking forward to traveling to bowl and then golf, hahaha. I am going to bowl in the NC Senior event they hold. It's way cool and my DW gets to bowl too. I'm also golfing in the event, as well. No money, just a ribbon and some notoriety if I do well. They do go to a different Sate or have some follow-up championship and it is all scratch with different age brackets. It will be interesting to see if there are any other older bowlers out there that a good and will be joining in on the fun. Anyway, off to go bowling with my DW and league bowlers. This is our practice day. Happy Spark'n, Stevebowlingdog

Mary - I can't wait until all the sidewalks get rid of the ice and snow. This is getting so old. This has got to be the longest winter ever.

Mel - prayers being sent up for a quick and successful recovery.

Steve - you make want to get back into bowling. You sound like you are having way too much fun.

Margaret - don't you just love when your pets show such unconditional love.

Bonnie - have a good time with the kids. It is such a precious time. You make me want to run over to my granddaughter's house to see her.

Lynn - I cannot believe all the job opportunities for your husband. How great is that. It is always amazing to me that you just never know what is around the next corner. How great is that.

So excited for my vacation to San Diego. Looking forward to some down time, some time to get out and do something exciting whatever that means. I feel so lucky to get to do this.

AD,

Maybe they are reading the information to you because they don't know what it is! Lol I have never heard of anything like that for an orientation. What will you be doing and what kind of business is it? I wish you good luck.

I am really tired tonight due to fire alarms all night Monday and apartments flooding on the second floor down on the first floor. It is all in my blog if anyone cares to read it. Just another segment in the days of our lives here at the funny farm.

We are having rain everyday and now flood alerts are out for three counties because the snow is melting and overflowing rivers in addition to the rains. I doubt we will get any here in the valley but we never know.

The Food Coalition brought us a load of fruits and dog and cat food this afternoon. It was a nice surprise. Tomatoes are $3 a pound now at the store. We got some nice beefsteak ones in the load.

The daycare children are coming in the morning to sing for us. They are so cute! Three to five year olds. We give them cookies to take back to their facility to share with the older children.

Sending good thoughts to all with physical ailments that you heal soon. My mind is not working at the moment--I did read all the posts but cannot remember all the names to respond to you individually. Forgive me.

MEL- I too hope your surgery went well and I pray for a great recovery. I'll be looking forward for your next post when you can. We all will celebrate and throw a party.

I went to bowl in that red pin thing and no one else showed up to bowl. It is a new thing they are trying to get off the ground and it was triple payoff night too. I decided not to bowl alone and take the houses money, LOL. but they gave me 3 free games. So, the lanes keeper came down and we talked over the new shot he put onto the lanes and we are very happy with what he has done. After I showed him how the oil is by my bowling, we were very happy. No one could complain now because they are perfect now. Y'all have a good night. Stevebowlingdog. emoticon

Mandy, I have problems with crowds, but sure would enjoy being there for that party.

Still have piles of pictures in the living room, and will get back to that chore when I finish the wedding invites. They keep adding people and have run out of stamps so to the post office tomorrow. I finally cleaned out the car - one trip to Goodwill Industries, and another to Steeple Store (thrift store sponsored my a church in Minneapolis). Still have way to go, but I will be working at it. Have a good evening.

Been behaving myself with the food and eating well. but boy do I miss exercising- not that I find it so wonderfully thrilling to do but because of the energy lift and I just feel better when I do. Got in to see the dr. tomorrow- so I'm hoping for some answers and also hope that I can get active again soon.

Had to go out with the horses today : ) the ferrrier came to trim their hooves and DD couldn't handle alone. Just loved being with Zahra- she kept giving me soft pokes with her muzzle and sniffing me. Sweet baby- I miss being with her and I think she misses me.

I'm eating less than my lower food range they recommend because I been vegging on the couch sooo much. I really can't stand it!! I'll make a terrible old person - LOL.



AD- wow! that is quit a long orientation! I missed what kind of work it is- nursing home?

Rosie- good to hear from ya. Keep up the good work!

Steve - you'll have to change your name to -Stevebowlingdog-- you've been bowling so much. But somehow it doesn't have the same ring.

Bonnie- you are one busy lady- take care- hope your back is doing well.

Limastar- some just have to learn it the hard way- hope he listens now.

Mary- glad you enjoyed your walk/run. Isn't it wonderful to see that snow disappearing. emoticon

Bye all - see ya tomorrow. emoticon

Hi all,

Got in another walk/run with the dog. I didn't call my neighbor because I wanted to go by myself - very stressful day at work and just needed to get out. Plus I ran part of the time - felt good. Most of the paths I was on tonight are clear of snow and ice. That's a huge bonus!!

Just wanted to check in. Have lots of things need to get done tonight so better go!!

Another busy school day. While at recess, one of the students went down the slide head first, hit his nose and started bleeding. So that was the end of recess. Had to get the kids together and take them in. Good thing I had a mini care kit with lots of tissue. Went in, turned the kids over to the teacher and took the bleeding student off to see the nurse. I've reminded them every time we're on the playground, "remember, you go down the slide on your bottom and your bottom only." Well, I'm sorry the accident happened, but the student who got hurt is one who consistently goes down head first. Maybe he's now learned why we have that rule about "bottom down only".

That was more than enough excitement for the day. I'm home now, had dinner and now need to get some school work done.

So have a great evening everyone.

Hello everyone,

Lynn- glad your hubby got a good offer. It' s a shame you just got unpacked and now you will be packing again. Maybe you could rent a furnished apartment where the new job is for a while to be sure it's going to be a permenent job. You could keep the home your in for your vacation place. Just a thought

Limastar- Sorry your hubby has eye problems. I hope all works out for the best.

Bonnie- Sorry your having back trouble again. Hope it feels better today

Mary- I see you went for a walk today. I missed my morning walk won't happen at all the rest of the week due to "the new JOB" I can't believe I miss walking

Job update:
Today I went for orientation from 8-3 and they people were nice but they read us a book verbatim 190 pages, showed us some videos, and had us answer a few questions after each chaper and tomorrow we get volume two. UGHHHHHHHHH they should have a better way of getting you to know the company. It is all useful information and need to know facts but really reading page by page . At least it will be over tomorrow and I start hopefullly working as the receptionist on Friday and get read to again. Do you think they read to us because they are used to reading to the elderly in the home. loloo

Howdie and good evening y'all.
DA- Way to go getting a new job. You must be scared but excited at the newness of taking on a new job.
Lynn- Your DH must be in demand with being able to get job offers all over the place. Good for you guys and I hope he gets it and likes it.
I bowled in my morning league and my last game was a 247 and I did not miss the pocket. Boy, another game of what good have been. Still, I've been on a roll, so to speak, for about 3 months now. Have a good night. Stevebowlinggolfdog

Hi all,
Today started out kinda rough- was really feeling sorry for myself- not being able to do things I wanted to do. Sigh!! After a while I just got tired of that- and my day slowly got better. Just kept busy with what I could- did some sewing (haven't done that in years)- read- did a little cleaning- watched TV. Would still like to be able to get around better- but what the heck- I can still get around!!

AD- I add my congrats on the new job!! Way to go!! Hope all goes smoothly for you!!

Lista- Well...not really... it wasn't anything exciting at all. I'm not sure but I think it was a good ol' twist while walking though crunchy snow; or maybe it was the 3 days heavy cleaning . Not sure but I can't seem to trust this body anymore- it become unreliable. lol

Lynn- woohoo- hope DH gets just the right job!! Good luck!!

Mary- thanks for the well wishes.

Limastar- hope all goes well for your DH eye appointment.

TeeJay- I know what you mean about the weather and the treadmill. Oh- for a sunny day and mild weather. sigh.

Take care all and keep up the good work!

LIMASTAR sorry to hear about your DH's eye but I'm sure it's nice to have him home, especially from the places he needs to go to

Lynn that's very exciting about your DH's job offers. Where in WI?

Hi to everyone else too!!!!

Went for a walk tonight with my neighbor and my dog. It was a little cool but not too bad. It was good to get out again. Had to be careful for the ice though. Looking forward to that all going away.

Took the night off from painting. One room left but needed a break. It's either going to have to wait a few days or DH will need to do it.

Have a great night everyone!!

Still having trouble with my back so just checking in again tonight.

Prayers for LIMASTAR for you and your husband.

LYNN Also prayers for your husband to get a great job, and one you can stay at!

TEEJAY

You can get those pounds back off. I am working on the same myself, and am not even close to goal as you are. Congrats and best wishes.


AD

I guess you are saying that you have gotten a job, but not sure of the details? did I get that right. Well, hoping it turns out well for you. Fingers crossed too!

God Bless my friends. I need to get my back up from this chair, so have a great day tomorrow.

Limastar- sorry to hear about your husband's vision. I'm just glad that he's home with you again safely. My co-worker is in Afghanistan for a yr and we're praying for her safety back home. I see you're so close to your goal, that's fantanstic!

AD - Congrats on your job!

Sunni4me - good luck with your husband's job interview. WI would probably be a better place to live than in IL, which I live in. I'm trying to get my husband to have us move to AZ, but no such luck!

I did make my goal but somehow the scale is going back up again. Hopefully when the weather gets better, I'll be able to go out and walk again. Treadmill is getting boring for me.

Haven't been around for a while. Hubby went off to Pakistan for wk for 2 wks. Where, he mentioned he wanted me to make an eye apt. for him in June when he got back from the other job in Afghanistan. When I asked him why (since he'd just had an exam in Sept, he said he was having some vision problems. So spent the next week, taking to the doctor and him to decide whether he needed to come home after he was finished in Pakistan, instead of traveling on to Afghanistan. After finally getting him to write down what his symptoms were and giving the letter to the doctor, the recommendation was for him to come home. So he got home yesterday morning, I took the afternoon off from wk, and took him to see the eye doctor.

The initial exam has resulted in him having to see a retina specialist and we couldn't get an apt. until 11 April. The good news is that the problem is most probably do to his cataract, which seems to be developing in the back of his eye and per the doctor, not usually how it develops. But to be on the safe side, hubby needs to go see the retina specialist. If it's confirmed that it's a cataract, then hubby goes to another specialist for an exam and surgery. In the meantime, he's canceled his wk trip for Afghanistan until after his eye surgery, whatever that will be - retina or cataract.

Lots of stress for the last few weeks. Very glad to see hubby back home.

Now off to get dinner on the table and then some school wk.

Have a good night everyone.

Hi Y'all,

DH got a really good offer from the company in IL. It's about 25 pages long and we were reading in when the company from Seattle called. He said "no". Then the company from ND called and he said "no' again. Lastly, the company from WI called. He is flying there Thur and they said they would have 2 offers at the end of the interview on Friday. All this happened in an hour! And I just started my job last week. I am pulling for the company in WI...just because it's a bigger location and I feel it is a better match for dh. The one in IL all 5 people he interviewed with said he was overqualified and it's a very small town. It will be a long week......

AD...good news about your job!! Congrats!! It is so traumatic looking for work.

Kathy .....your new pic is really nice.

I will check in later...gotta walk with the neighbors and then Bunco, Lynn

Hello all

I'm waiting for Mel husband to notify me on how she is doing. She said she gave him step by step information on contacting me so that I can post on this chat the information for all of you.

No word on the job. The woman was suppose to call me yesterday but she said she got busy and forgot to call me and that she would call today. It's now 2:30pm and not call yet. Maybe she will remember before 4pm. I'm suppose to go to orientation tomorrow at another facility for two days . I'll let you all know when I know lololol.

My house needs painting so I think we should just get together and have a painting party anybody interested

Just stopping in to say "goodnight". My back is much better after another adjustment today, but don't want to tax it by sitting at the computer for long.

Thanks for the compliments on my new picture, everyone!

AD-Congrats on your job! That's fantastic!!

Sandy-I'm glad you enjoyed your time with the girls. :-)

Mary-Since you enjoy painting so much, wanna come do my house next?? ;-)

Sorry this is short, but I'm pretty worn out. Work has been pretty stressful the last couple of weeks. Gotta go get some sleep and start all over tomorrow! Good night, all.

AD - emoticon emoticon Glad you got the job.

Had a great monday with my girls. Spent some time with them at the library where they have an interactive center. Plenty of other children to play with and share activities. Spent about an hour. Played a few games of Uno with the 6 yr. old and one game of War. Likes to play cards. The little one was taking care of her "baby" while watching DORA and a nice 2 hour nap in the afternoon. Have the day off tomorrow thanks to one of their aunts who is very pregnant and due in a couple weeks. She likes to spend time with them. I am gratefull for a morning to sleep in past 5:15 am.

DD goes to med doc on friday to get clearance for her hip surgery on Monday. Will have her 11 yr old overnight sunday and monday next week. That way DSIL won't have to worry about getting her to school and dance and just take care of one person.

So my time will be divied up between 2 families. Good thing DH doesn't mind simple dinners.

Kathy, you look great. Glad you are getting some running in.

We get another day of cold sunshine before the light dusting of snow. Baseball opens Friday, and I know it will snow. Has the last 2 yrs. Since I am off will get some walking in either outside or head up to the Y for some biking.

Have a great evening all!

Margaret - welcome back. Sorry to hear you hurt your knee. I hope at least you were doing something daring and fun when it happened.

Kathy - love your new picture. You look great.

Auntie - yeah for you on your new job.

Had a great weekend with my self induced "leave me alone" time. It worked out great and it was relaxing. Cleaned the house, read a book, watched tv, worked on a puzzle, talked to my sister for an hour, went to the gym twice, worked on plans for my San Diego trip. It was a good weekend. Husband was a good sport too.

Got out early to runs some errands and back to sorting and tossing. I don't know how we can accumulate so much stuff and now my mission is to get rid of things that I don't even remember having. From the looks of things I will be at this for some time. Saturday I was asked to help address wedding invitations for my granddaughter that I getting married in May. Now, how can you possibly say no and, of course, I didn't. Now I have to clear a place on the table to have some space to write. You know I have far more time than money so things will get done when they get done. Have a great day. emoticon

Hi everyone I hope everyone had a great Monday well my Monday is all most over.
Bonnie it is hard to tell the seasons here as it is there winter now but it doesn't last long, it just feels like summer all year round, I think we had about 4 cold days, it does get very dusty here they have a lot of sand storms.
Steve the sun sets here are very nice, but I must say we get better ones were we live in Australia and our sykies, seem to have much more star's.
Goodnight everyone

Hi team,
I'm back and really enjoyed myretreat. Bad news is I've injured my knee and have been sitting around vegging all weekend- going to check out spark articles about exercises to do without using your legs. Can't get in to see the Dr. until Friday so I'll just have to make the best of it.
Been able to hobble around a bit today- but my knee feels like it will give out if I'm not real careful.

enough of that...

Kathy- I love your new pic- you are looking so great!!

Rw- I'm jealous of your thunderstorm- we got another 8 inches of snow this past week! UGH
Mostly lake effect- but still is snow! The sound of rumbling thunder sounds good about now lol.

Hi to all the rest of you sparkers- keep up the good work!!

Coffee - I gave it up when I was pregnant. Then later I gave it up for a brief period a few years ago. And didn't feel noticeably better and I decided that I really do love it! I usually have 2 cups in the morning. Occasionally I'll have a midday cup later, but not often.

MIMI you are making me feel guilty! We've been in our house for 18 years (the longest I've lived anywhere) and have accumulated way too much STUFF! I need to start cleaning out, too.

June- glad that you enjoyed your time in Florida, you came to visit at a good time. We are very fortunate to have good roads, bicycle lanes, sunny weather and beaches. I was at the beach this morning and it was perfect.
Research about the good and bad of coffee are so inconclusive and it changes from year to year, yes or no. I've been drinking coffee all my life and I know I'd never be able to just quit , although I have cut down some in the past few years.
see you all

Hello everyone...................... Im back from the sunshine state................... it was hard leaving 85 degrees and bright blue suuny skies to come home to 40 degrees. brrrr
I love NJ --------------- but I have to admit ------------ Florida knows how to do the winter months alot better than NJ does.
I ran 4 miles per day every day in Florida................... I was amazed that there were actual bike lanes along so many of the roads that you could bike or run on. How great is that?

I see all the chat on coffee..................... should we drink it or shouldnt we? Generations have been having that morning cup of coffee ------------- so I think I will stick with what history shows ------------ and let the scientists keep arguing the issue. They change so often I think Im going to keep doing what I do and moderation is key - I have about 3 medium size cups per day - and that works for me.

Enjoy the rest of your sunday everyone..............................

Good idea to take it a bit at a time. I am still suffering from my episodic house cleaning last weekend. Have been goint to the Y and working out on the recumbent cross trainer because I think it loosens the muscles in my back. Will be going to Dr Mike in the morning after I go to the Y. I know that will help!

BRENDA

I love going to the library sales when it is "bag" day! Always get great buys for little momey. Glad it was fun. Sweet of your neighbor to give you the Easter eggs!

MARY

Hope you are finding the tile that you want. It is great that your nephew is going to install it for you. That would be a tough job! Good luck painting the big room!

Enjoy the tea whenever it works for you!

Now will this be your fall/winter coming up, like in Australia? Hate to admit how ignorant I am of geography. I am terribly directionally challenged!

Hope you are enjoying the sunshine since you are having so much of it!

Had a nice day today. Just hanging out at home now!

Happy Sunny Sunday. Going to take a day of rest today and will get back to sorting and tossing again tomorrow. I feel like I have been in over-drive for a while and need to regroup. None of this accumulated in one day, month, or year so I have given myself permission to do a little at a time. Hope everyone is having a lovely Sunday. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Happy Sunday, Everyone!

Another rainy day but not very cold. Yesterday we had on and off rain squalls. My psychotic friend, Judy, and I went to the $1 a bag book sale yesterday at our little Mall. I bought two bags and don't know where I will put them. LOL The $1 bags were at the end of the sale after three pm. I got a lot of good books, mostly historical Civil War, a couple about the Kennedy boys murders, one about Princess Diana and another one about Elvis. Then we went to the Flea Market and wandered around, then the grocery store and came home. I'm looking for the Easter Eggs like they had when I was younger and can't find any so far. They probably don't make them anymore. Anyway, when we got back, Jeanette met us at the front door and gave me a 5 pack carton with Cadberry Cream Eggs (Milk chocolate with soft fondant center) that she found at the dollar store. I just laughed because she took me serious that I wanted the candy eggs from the past. She was very thoughtful, tho.

I wish you all sunshine and warmer days.

Good morning all. Sun is shining very brightly today....just wish it was as warm outside as it looks. Only in the 30's today and the temps are supposed to start creaping back up this week.

OMG!!! My body is soooo sore. Today we are going to buy tile for the bathroom. Nothing like waiting to the last minute since our nephew will be here tomorrow to start installing it! We did look last week and kind of know what we want. We are also going to paint the big room today. We have a power roller so that will help make it go faster. Just need to cut in the edges by hand.

Thanks Bonnie for the spark goodie!! The relaxing cup of tea will need to wait a bit yet.

Have a great Sunday everyone!!

Good Morning Team!

Seems a bit quiet here right now. Just dropping in to wish everyone a wonderful Sunday.

Very cold here, but the sun is out, so I am pretty sure that spring will come soon?!

Hope wherever you are that it is a good day. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Been out and about almost all day. Coffee group all morning and wedding shower out of town so a lot of sitting, talking and laughing. I am little tired so probably not too much sparking this evening.

Hi all,

Lynn - that's exciting that your DH is getting all those offers!! Things will all work out. Those of us up north here all survive the winter each year. I'd love SC right now but I don't think I'd do well there in the summer. The humidity here is bad enough.

Lista - San Diego is a very fun place. We went there quite a long time ago, the kids were pretty small. We drove up to La Jolla which was very pretty. And we hit the zoo and Sea World. April will be a great time to go there. Rest up so you are all healthy and can really enjoy it.

Hi to everyone else too!

Just finished 6 hours of painting. All the ceilings are finished and the walls are all primed. I am already sore. Tomorrow I probably won't be able to lift my arms above my head. The ceilings are buggers!!! Glad those don't need to be painted very often. Tonight I'm just going to relax and watch High School boys basketball tourney. Our town's team is in the championship game. DS went to the game - wonder if I'll see him in the crowd???

Have a great night everyone!

Sniff-I miss my coffee! :-( I love it, but can't drink it now because of the GI issues. I hope to have a cup of Starbucks white mocha on special occassions, at least.

The week just flew by for me! I'm trying to make the weekend slow down, but I'm not doing a good job on that-lol. Spent lots of money today-went shopping at my fave store, Ann Taylor Loft. They had everything 30% off! I also bought an expensive flat iron. The one I bought last weekend wasn't hot enough. I spoke with my hairdresser who said the one she used gets up to 450 degrees, which is what I needed, so I shelled out $100 for one! Yikes..the things we do in the name of "beauty".

Gotta get on the elliptical later tonight and do my upper body and abs ST.

Hope all is well with everyone!

So glad your husband has so many choices, but hate that you might have to move once again, expecially to somewhere COLD! Glad you are enjoying your new job, or were the last time you reported!

Would sure love to come to SC and see you guys. I am retired of course, but still have responsibilities for the kids. My plan for retirement, until my nieces' became pregnant, and I decided that I could not let them go to daycare, was to go south every winter. Oh well, the best laid plans........

That's ok, there is so much joy in being with them!

LISTA

So sorry you are still feeling tough. Good for you, (and it is great that your husband is a good one), for deciding to take care of yourself. You have to be in good shape for that wonderful vacation you have ahead of you!

RW,LISTA and MARY

I love my coffee! Have to have my own grinder, and have a great coffee pot that does not have a burner, but has a great carafe and keeps it good and hot for quite awhile.

That way it never has that burned taste.

I also like all of the dark roast coffee, but do like the dark roast French roast. You have to really like coffee though to drink mine, cause I make it very strong. Most of my friends do too, and those that don't put cream etc in it. Way to ruin a good cup of coffee, but to each his own!

I used to buy my coffee at World Market, but have since found that I love the coffee at Trader Joe's. Have to go to Ann Arbor to get it, but that is always a fun little trip anyway. Only about an hour from my house.Nothing better than the smell of freshly ground coffee beans! YUM

Had a pretty good day. Still cold but sunny. My back is still pretty touchy from the cleaning last weekend, but went to work out today and loosened it some. Another trip to the Chiropractor on Monday, then probably on Friday also as I have an appointment with my massage therapist and always get my back adjusted before doing that.

Hoping that will be the end of this acute phase for this time!

hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Enjoy.

Hi Y'all,

DH is getting an offer Mon or Tues from the company in IL. The company he worked 30 yrs for and retired from asked if he would want to come back, it's in ND. He also has a flyback to WI. next week. They all sound like cold winters to me. I will just play it by ear. Of course he will get a job now, since I just started mine this week.

Steve I still love it here is SC. If we move back to the Midwest, maybe I will have to winter in SC.

Sandy and Bonnie.........COME ON DOWN!

Lista......sorry you still feel under the weather. The gaslight district has some great restaruants. We went on the harbor cruise and it was fun. There is really a lot to do in San Diego and the weather is perfect about 90% of the time. You will have a great time. My friends and old neighbors are sandbagging like crazy in Fargo. I don't miss that every spring. I hope you don't have to worry about your house flooding.

Have a good rest of the weekend, Lynn

I love a good tasting cup of coffee. Not weak church coffee, or French roast. Columbian or Peaberry are my favorite type. I have a Keurig coffee machine that is the best thing ever. For a treat my favorite is a coconut latte. Yummy!

Yesterday went to the doctor because I still feel under the weather from the cold I had a month ago while I was on my big 2 week trip. I was hoping he'd find something he could medicate me for but alas, no. Which is good I suppose but you know. It most likely is I'm just exhausted from being sick, all the stress of getting work done to go on the trip and then not really having a restful 2 weeks on the road because we were up early every day and go, go, going. Then coming back to work it is so busy I can't get caught up. So today I am having a totally selfish day. I told my husband that this weekend I was going to only do what I wanted to do, don't ask me to do anything, or go anywhere. Sounds bossy but a girl's got do what a girl's got to do! I just need to breath and lay low. He's playing along with this. Such a good guy. He doesn't like that I have been sick for so long either.

We are going on a nice relaxing vacation to San Diego the first part of April. Really looking forward to that. Husband has a 3 day conference and then we are taking a week off after that. Daughter is coming with. Should be fun. Any ideas of what do do there? Restaurants? For sure going to the zoo.

Waiting for the snow to go away. Sunny day today, not so warm but should melt some more snow. The water in the rivers is already going over the banks and flooding. Sandbagging going on like crazy to try to help. They say this will be the worst flooding here since the mid 60's. I know that 1995 was really bad so can't imagine what they are expecting.

Have a good day. Hmmm what shall I do now? Take a nap? Exercise? We'll see.

Ok, on your way to see Steve and Lynn, PICK ME UP PLEASE!

Just stopping in to say good morning.

Laura is out of town for work, so Derek and I are having breakfast together this morning. Know he has been lonely! She will be home in a day or two now.

The sun is shining, even if it is only 27 degrees, I am going to keep on pretending that it is spring!

Have a good weekend my friends.

Mel - will be thinking of you !!

The sun has been out the last few days even though it hasn't been too warm the snow is melting. I can see a few patches of ground again here and there. Hopefully that is the last of the snow.

Will be a busy weekend. They have finished all the sheetrocking and taping and mudding in the basement so now we'll be starting to prime and paint the walls. That means the end can't be too far away!!!! Our nephew is coming on Monday to start doing the tiling in the bath. So my exercise this weekend will be painting.

Not much else new around here. Starting to feel better.....finally!

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!!

Mel - Prayers withyou for successful surgery and speedy recovery.

SOOO glad it is Friday. Had a "lovely" week with DGD's and a house full of furnace installers at my DS's. they were completely redoing all the heating/ac runs in the house besides a new furnace and ac. Left one day as the heat was off. Let them deal with the Great Dane. LOL.
Being that it was our company that was doing the installation and DS was there, no need for me to be.

Next week the 6 yr old on spring break. Making some plans in my head to do something special with the little ones. Nature Center and Library among them.

Only one more week until DD's hip surgery. We are trying to get things done to make life easier at her house. Dear Friend of mine had a chair for the toilet and a bench for the tub. DD will not be able to bend more than a 90 degree angle for a few weeks. Had to raise her bed to get into and she has been practicing with her crutches. I will probably be running my butt off between her and the girls. I get tired just thinking about it. Her DH has been working a lot of OT too. We are getting dinners frozen and ready for easy fixing.

Then Easter only a month away. I have a ton of thngs going on and the family dinner is at our home. Usually 25-30 of us for dinner. Have to stop thinking about it.

Loved all the jokes. Gave me a good laugh after a hard day.

Can't believe it snowed a little today. At least it didn't stick and the sun was out this afternoon.
Still going to be cold the next week. Yuck! Lynn and Steve- think I'm coming down by you. Need to run away for a bit. LOL

Have a great weekend all! Keep the Spark! emoticon

I sooo understand about collecting so much stuff! I have a big attic and a big basement, and stuff just climbs up the stairs to the attic, and down the stairs to the basement. Don't really know where it all comes from.
When my roommates moved out last fall, they found a house much faster than we all expected, so Derek was going to bring all fo the junk out of the attic and put it in a dumpster. Now, that the weather is getting better, we will have to make a date for him to get the stuff from the attic to the dumpster. He has it all gathered in the middle so it is just going to be a matter of his strong back!

Thanks so much for that laughs, loved both jokes! Saw the toilet water punch line coming! Too funny.

Good morning to you, a day late!

Long day yesterday, did not even turn the computer on, so had to get on this morning and see how everyone is doing.

You are in my thoughts and prayers! God Bless and will miss you!

Off to go to Dr Mike to get my back put back in place after all of the house cleaning I did last weekend. Pretty pitiful when cleaning house puts your stinking back out!

Thank God for Dr Mike!

Have a great weekend all!

Back to sorting and tossing out again today. Probably will be at this for some time. I moved from a three bedroom home to a one bedroom condo over 30 years ago. At that time I down sized big time. I don't know what has happened, and how did I acquire so much all over again. emoticon emoticon

Just dropping in to say "HI" to everyone. This trying to get organized is much more work that I bargained for, but I guess someone has to do it. Haven't spent too much time sparking so please forgive me if I am not addressing each an every one. My living room is pretty cluttered with different piles, but I am in it for the long haul. emoticon

New Wine for Seniors

California vintners in the Napa Valley area, which primarily produce Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio wines, have developed a new hybrid grape that acts as an anti-diuretic.
It is expected to reduce the number of trips older people have to make to the bathroom during the night.

The new wine will be marketed as.......................................

Had to take time to share this with you all. Enjoy the laugh hope itmakes your day


MOTHER WOULD KNOW...


~A Cup of Tea ~

One day my mother was out, and my dad was in charge of me.

I was maybe 2 1/2 years old. Someone had given me a little 'tea set' as a gift, and it was one of my favorite toys.

Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought him a little cup of 'tea', which was just water. After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my mom came home.

My dad made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was 'just the cutest thing!' Mom waited, and sure enough, here I came down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy; and she watched him drink it up.

Then she said, (as only a mother would know), "'Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach to get water, is the toilet?"

Goooooodd morning to you all. I need a nap from reading all of your activities. Love the bowling stories Stevebowlinggolfdog. Used to bowl myself but definitely not as good as you only in the mid 100s. Will be bowling in a leukemia charity event in April. I will let you know how I do as I have not really bowled in years. Can't believe I got at least 4 inches of snow yesterday. I was hoping to move my training from the treadmill to the trail soon. Sun is shining so beautifully today. Wishing I was in the desert right now! Let us know how beautiful it is and how much fun you had. Hope everyone has a gr8 spark day.

Rosie- Enjoy your picnic in the desert. They must have nice sun rises and sun sets being so flat. It is flat there, right? Or do you have many sand dunes to block your views. Hmmm.
BONNIE- You are right! That 259 I bowled last night was 10 strikes out of a possible 12 and I did not miss the pocket at all, except for the very first frame. I bowled three games too. I'm convinced that I need to pump some iron to get stronger arms so I can throw the ball harder when I need it and I'll be able to warm up faster. It seems to take about 7 frames before I get the speed up and don't notice the weight of the bowling ball. It's a good think we get 10 minutes of warm up before important league or this color pin event or other tournaments one bowls in. It would take me forever to find the shot. Oh, BTW, Good morning y'all, LOL. You can see that I'm obsessed, haha. Happy Spark'n y'all and have a great day. Stevegolfbowlingdog.

Hello everyone well it is the weekend here again it comes so quick, Aunty Darling you made me feel so tired with all the exercise, you are doing so well,
I have been quite lazy today didn't even go on my treadmill, we are going out tomorrow with some Arab friends we meet here, I like going out with them as they take us to places not many western people get to see, he said he will take us into the desert, they like having picnics here and the only place to have them is in the desert they have 3 children so we normally have some fun.
Hope everyone has a great day lots of hugs to everyone.

We must have been posting at the same time. Sending prayers and good wishes your way for the job interview and follow up! Good Luck!

I too am ready for spring! Yucky here also, When I came home tonight, my back deck was all iced over. Very glad that I had the lights on so that I noticed it. I could just see me going down the steps or somewhere on my butt! I kind of "skated" my way to the back door! Hoping that will be clear in the am as I have no salt in my house, and I think I am completely out.

Again, think spring all!

Wow STEVE what a perfect day. The way you are bowling, you will have a perfect game soon enough!

MEL

Hope you are enjoyin' your Thursday. I enjoyed my Weds, and need to got bed to get up and go to Christy's to be with Gracee, and Ellee when she gets home from school.

Amy and I went to the movie and out to dinner this afternoon and evening. Saw, "Limitless". We enjoyed it, but the ending was a bit strange. If anyone has seen it, I would be interested in your take on it. If you want to send me a private message so we don't spoil it for anyone else, that would be fine.

MIMI

It is good to have a hairdresser that you trust that much. That is a long history of good haircuts!.

I know how you feel after getting that area purged and organized. I agree having someone else there is always a great help.

Still need to get into my basement. This has been a 3 or 4 stage project already. Need to get there again pretty soon.

MARY

Glad you are enjoying your running shoes. A good pair of shoes is very important. I need to get out and buy myself a new pair soon.

Take it easy with that cough. Can't be too careful.

Ms RAE

I will have to remember about FREECYCLE. That is a good idea. I usually do the Salvation Army or Goodwill. There is also a home here that helps abused women and their children get job interviews, aprts, etc. They are another good place.

Good for you for jumping back ONTO the wagon! good job.

Goodnight my friends!

Hello everyone hope you all had a good day. I answered all the post this morning and then it just dissapeared emoticon so I'll try again tonight

Mary- I hope your feeling better now that you have the meds to help you get rid of the infection. We got a few inches of snow but not too muich we are suppose to get more this week. I really can't wait for spring

Sandy- my friend likes to go to the Blue Man Group and watch their performances she says they are great and enjoys them

I'm glad you enjoy gardening. I'm not that great at it I have a few plants here and there but not much to have to take care of. My friend gave me a christmas tree for a gift in December but it's not doing to good. I water it and keep it in the sun but it's really drying out anyway.

Kathy=- I'm glad you enjoyed your run outside. I do a walk everyday but not a run.

Bonnie- I'm glad the mirror looks great in your home " someone else's hand outs are usually someone else treasure".

Lynn-= glad you like your job. I did retail in the early 90's and I really loved the customer interaction more than the work.

DIANA6025
You've done a wonderful job in losing weight and inches. Please don't put yourself down. You are a motivation for the rest of us that need someone like you telling us that you are losing and looking great at the same time. Keep it up

Steve- glad you are back from MIA this past week or else I've missed your posts.

Hopp2it- welcome back

LMMIMI
Now that your done cleaning out your storage unit please come to my house and clean out my attic and basement. I won't even care what you throw away as long as I don't have to do itl emoticon

I went to jazz class this morning and curves tonight and i got in my walk today as well. It was in the 70's last week and now we are at 32 again. I can't seem to get warm.

Had a job interview this week and a call back to meet the company manager. I think the job just might be mine.
Mel thanks for the input on the calories loss and the persperation loss as well. I actually keep a bottle of water in the car and so I just got a good laugh at your suggestion. But I really need to turn the ac on in the car to cool down my anxiety and sweat after each appointment. I should be thin with all the stress calories i use up everyday these past weeks. I'll let you know either way.

Well it's 10pm here and i'm heading off to bed. It's about an hour past my bedtime and boy if i don't get my zzzzzzzzzzzz's i'm crankier than my gd in the morning. lololo

Have a great day.
