Congrats on both the new bookshelf and the weight loss. I love finding new recipes that are tasty and worth the time they take.

The whole family went paint We'll have to go back another time.

Challenge is going really well. We're both down almost 6 pounds.Tomorrow is official weigh in day. We really like some of the recipes. Others aren't worth the time they take.

Good job at work.

Peter is making progress. I just feel badly that he is trapped here all day.


Went to an estate sale today. We bought a bookcase for $12 to solve my kitchen storage problems. It worked out great. I now have my counter back for meal prep.

Sounds like he's making progress, even if it isn't as quick as you like. Great job on staying so close to your calorie range when going out. That's hard to do.

I got my qual builds sent to the subcon! My part is done...just gotta wait for someone else to do the actual work. emoticon

Took Peter to his Dr.'s app't. today to have his bandage changed to a cast. He still has a while before he will be able to do anything. They said "no driving". He's not supposed to move the thumb and it's hard to grip a steering wheel that way.


We went out for dinner for date night last night. did not go over calories by very much.

Congrats on losing weight!!! And learning new recipes and how much you should eat is huge! You are doing fantastic! Glad to hear his hiccups are dissipating.

I'm caught up and chillaxing, so it's a good day.

Luckily, the hiccups have pretty much disappeared already. He will continue on the baclofen, just to be sure. He sometimes has them just after he eats. The anesthesia wears off, but for some reason it can affect the diaphragm and make it spasm so hiccups occur. It's rare.

I have found some recipes I will definitely use in the future. I am learning how much of certain foods to eat and how to put them together. It's interesting though, that I have been over on protein every night even though I am following the program.


Exercise is still a problem. Getting outside has been impossible. We had 2 days of 90+ weather and now it is going to rain four four days.


I have lost weight!

How long will the hiccups last? Does the anesthesia stick around in the system for awhile? I hope the anti-spasmodic works.

Maybe the challenge will give you ideas on what you can/will eat and ways to prepare them that works for your lifestyle. Good luck with it!!

I got to go on a walk with DD and DD's BFF.

Yeah, it's rare but anesthesia can cause unrelenting hiccups. He finally talked to the anesthesiologist yesterday and he put him on Baclofen which is an anti-spasmodic. He said the pain killer the surgeon prescribed was just a placebo. Neither of us is very impressed with the surgical group he used.

The weather has been very hot and muggy for two days. Today is supposed to be cooler and stormier.


The challenge is going well, but it takes a lot of time to prep and cook the food. It's helping me figure out what to eat, but I would do less complicated meals. I also have to make breakfast and lunch twice every day because they are only meant to feed one person. Peter is doing the challenge, too. I am going to try and get a walk in this morning before it rains. I'm taking care of a little girl and pushing her wheelchair will burn some extra calories.

Peter has had the hiccups ever since his surgery. They are somewhat controlled by his pain meds, but he graduated to just Tylenol and that doesn't control them. He finally got a hold of the surgeon today after hours of trying. The surgeon said he had never run into the problem before and prescribed another pain killer. Again, they are somewhat controlled, but I don't want him taking pain meds for hiccups. I found the phone number for the anesthesiologist and told him to call there tomorrow. It is caused by the anesthesia, so I'm sure they have a better idea of what to do.


Started the challenge today. Did fine with it. The groceries cost almost $300. This better work to get me motivated again.

Peter had surgery because of arthritis in the bottom joint of his right thumb. He uses it to hold things when he works on clocks. Luckily, he is left handed. He's off pain meds so he's more coherent. I just wish he would get off the couch and move more.

I just have to do my grocery shopping for the challenge. I've made my schedule for exercise. Hope it works out. I don't have much wiggle room on Mon., Tues., and Wed.


Hope youhad fun with your company.

I hope you can both survive until he can use his thumb again. Why did he need surgery?

Yes, it is going to be long three months. We met with his therapist today. She had planned to remove his dressing to check the incision and do some ROM testing, but as soon as she saw his arm she said no way. With thumb surgery they wait 6 days because of the pain involved when the remove the dressing. There will be nothing to support his thumb and even when she redresses it, she won't do as good a job as the doctor. After a couple of weeks the doctor will remove the dressing and put him in a cast for four weeks. It is only after the cast is removed that he can begin therapy. Until then he isn't supposed to use it for anything.


Prepping for the challenge on Monday. Had to rework some of the recipes to make them vegetarian. it should be okay.

I hope he does apologize.

Peter had thumb surgery yesterday. I may go crazy before he can start driving again. He follows me around a questions or comments on everything I do. They put a pain block in his arm and it hasn't worn off yet. He is taking pain killers so he will have some on-board when it does wear off. He has his first therapy tomorrow. The doctor said it will be at least three months before Peter stops hating him. Sounds like fun to me.

It's an online challenge. All you need is the new book The Spark solution. There is also a Spark team.

The bunny is doing great. Her name is Munchkin. She loves to be held and is very active.

Got a new house rabbit today. My bother and SIL, who were boarding my rabbit, gave him away to an autistic girl who fell in love with him. She just lost all her rabbits. They offered to get him back, but I knew it would break her heart. My SIL breeds rabbits, so I just got one of her many babies. Munchkin is a mini satin with Siamese cat markings. She's only 9 weeks old, so she needs some time to fill out. She's very pretty and cuddly.

Peter's sister is gluten free for serious health reasons. We felt like she always had to be different and we didn't want this dinner to make her stand out. We will do something different next time. We only host once a year and Peter has been enjoying their hospitality for years without having to reciprocate. He figures it was only fair.

I got the muslin done and after a few changes I can now make the linen pants.

Today is our two year anniversary of being back together.

I'm glad that the pants are worth it! Are you gluten-free? That's an expensive way to go if you don't have to for a medical reason.

I asked for two days off next week. Sister in law and her two kids are coming to stay with us for a couple of days. Should be fun!

That amusement park I could handle.


The pants will be worth it, because once I have the pattern adjusted, I can make multiple pairs.


We hosted Peter's family at a restaurant tonight. it was our favorite place on a night it is closed. It was very expensive because we asked for everything to be gluten free and some of the crackers were just ridiculously expensive. Everyone had a great time, so I guess it was worth it.

This amusement park does not have roller coasters or such. Go karts and bumper boats and miniature golf. Love them all.

Sounds like a lot of work for a pair of pants. Hope it's worth it!

Haven't been to an amusement park in years. Neither Tim nor I like rides.


The pants will take a while. I have the muslin mock-up all ready to sew. I had to trace the pattern, cut out the muslin pieces and do all the markings I need to put them together. After I adjust the mock-up I will know what adjustments to make when I make the real pair. It's time consuming, but I hope it will be successful this time. I already like the style better than the last pair.


Got the grocery shopping done between cutting out and doing the markings. We get our first CSA veggies on Tuesday.

How long does it take to sew the pants? Are you done? Did they fit this time?

My kids and I met my sisters-in-law and their kids at an amusement park. Spent the day racing go-karts, playing laser tag and riding bumper boats. It was so much fun! Exhausting, but fun!!

Yay, for getting the house to yourself. Alas, I find I have it to myself far too often these days.



Yesterday I bought Peter three new pair of shorts and four knit shirts to go with them. He dressed in a set last night for date night and he looked good. He was very surprised when I told him he didn't owe me any money. I bought them as a gift.


Cold and rainy here today. Remnants of the tropical storm. Will last through tomorrow morning, but it will be warmer.

I'll be happy to send you all the hot weather. We are in the 70s and I am enjoying it!



Found some new shorts that are longer than 6 inches!

We are supposed to hit the high 80's to mid-90's starting Thursday. I can hardly wait!

I went for a walk after dinner.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Enjoying the weather.

Cleaned my bathroom and kitchen. Dusted and straightened my livingroom. Couldn't stand the mess any longer.

You can have the heat. Finally broke over night, but the humidity didn't leave until this afternoon. Only 40s tonight. 70s the rest of the week.

How nice that you could have a lazy day, especially after such a busy day. BTW, you can send that heat wave here! LOL!

Got all my chores done and can finally sit and Spark. Gonna change out my purse too...just because I can.

Day 4 of our heat wave. It is supposed to break today. Looking more and more like thunder storms are coming.


Just a lazy day today. Got all my work done yesterday.

Yeah, kids finally do reach that stage!

I'm not sure Peter wants to work fulltime again, but I have my doubts about his new arrangement. The guy is already putting pressure on him to get things done and out. He hasn't even started there yet and won't before the tenth. Only time will tell.

Up at 4:30 this morning to get my client up at 5. Her daughter is in a jump rope competition today and they had to be on the road by 6:30. I came home and went back to bed until 9:40. after breakfast I went back to her house and cleaned and did laundry for three hours. I work for her outside of my official work hours. Tonight I go back and get her into bed at 9:30.Very long day for her.

We are just trying to stay cool. In the third day of 90+ weather. Tomorrow is day four and the end of it. We are in a second floor apartment, but we can't have an air conditioner because the bedroom windows are considered our second egress for fire. Our building is the only one under the restriction.

Sounds like you had a great day! I'm sorry that Peter lost his lease. Hope he can find a new place full time soon (assuming that's what he wants). Until then, enjoy the time together!

I got to spend the day at my son's field day. He didn't spend much time with me, but didn't really expect him to. LOL!

Yeah, to the day off.


Peter and I spent a lot of time together today. I took him out for lunch and then for a ride along the ocean. After work, we had out usual date night, Watched some TV. We will be having more time together as he has semi retired because he lost the lease on his shop. He has found someone's basement to work in, but only three days a week. I have early afternoon free every day and most weekends I work only first thing in the morning and then at bedtime.

I don't mind the dentist. Just a teeth cleaning...I have not had a cavity yet...knock wood!

Sounds like you had a good day too.

I went to work today and got everything done that needed done so I could take another day off!

Except for the dentist, sounds like you had a good day, too. Weather was cold and rainy today. Really hard to believe we're going into a four day heat wave.

No sewing today. Work took longer than planned and then I needed to shower and do my hair. Since I have let it grow, it takes some time to dry now to make it look good.

Did get some cross stitching done while I was working.

Sweet! Sounds like a really good day. Hope the next set of clothes work better!

I took the day off to go to the dentist and take my puppy in for a haircut (his hair was dragging!) Cleaned a few areas in the house and got two loads of laundry done. It was a good day!

Today is beautiful. I'd like it like this all year.


Did the grocery shopping this morning. Got home and realized we were out of jelly and catsup. Took Tim and went back to the store. Sparking and then off to work again.


Washed my new fabric so I can do some sewing tomorrow.
