Naomi, I admire members that are comfortable in the gym. They have so many machines.
I am more comfortable with our treadmill and my DVDs. Of course, I like to walk with my DH outside.

I am off for a few errands. Maybe I'll get some walking in also.

Thanks for the tips. If I count tea as water, I'll may have 6 glasses a day.

Everyone sounds busy with yardwork. My DH worked outside yesterday, while I washed clothes and worked in the house.

Today, I am treating myself to a manicure and pedicure. After the trip, I really need it.

Mary hasn't returned my message, so I will call again today and ask her to make out her shopping list. She always needs personal items, and I know she is low on everything.
Thanks for all your concerns.

Kay – I read that tea does count as water. I haven’t been drinking tea lately. Have to get back to that. You know, Kay, in a way I can understand your friend not wanting to live. She is 90 and can’t do all that much for herself, no relatives so to speak of. Not much to keep her going.

I did drink the 4 glasses and will give myself a star goodie for that. So thanks Sheila for that tip.

Grace – glad to hear you arrive safely in CT.

I guess we should be on the May thread.

Have a good evening.

IRENE, Thank you! It's good to be back. Now, I have to unpack and get the yard cleaned up. My step son, who TOLD us he would pick up our leaves, last fall, came over, yesterday, after we arrived back in CT and blew away the leaves, that have been laying and piling up all over our lawn, since November. I will never depend on him again!

She only has 2 first cousins that live in Tennessee. They don't get here very often.
Mary had a brother, and he died several years ago before I knew her.
She has a few close friends. She has lived her all her life. When you are 90, many of your friends have already passed. I'm anxious to spend some time with her Thursday. She had a doctor's appointment Thursday, but it was just a check-up with a new doctor. I'm cancelling it. The nurse said that she was too weak to get into the car. I know that my DH's back has hurt for 3 days after lifting her. He had to put her into the dentist chair a couple of weeks ago. At one time, she could take a few steps to help, but she hasn't in several weeks. She's just dead weight. The said part to me is that she doesn't want to live. She says that she's lived long enough.
I want to cheer her up Thursday if I can.
Thanks for your concern,'
Kay

I finally arrived back in CT yesterday afternoon and got back online this afternoon.
KAY, You friend, Mary, will be in my prayers. You are such a good friend to plan to be with her, at this time. Does she have any relatives?

Naomi,

I have the same problem with water. If I drink 5 glasses a day; that's good. I do think that hot tea and etc. count as water.

Kay - sorry to hear about Mary.

Sheila – the star is a good idea. I may try it for my water. I try to drink 4 glasses and can’t even seem to do that. I’m going to try small steps and for this week its drinking the water.

There is a lady at the Assisted Living where I volunteer. She is 90. I called there today to talk to the nurse. She said that Mary was going down. They are thinking about calling in Hospice for extra care. I am cancelling all appointments. She is too weak to go anywhere. They have to do everything for her. I will see her Thursday since I have appointments Tuesday and Wednesday.
Please keep her in your prayers. We have been taking care of her for several years.

Good morning! I'm up a little earlier and usual - it must be the twelve glasses of water, including the 3 right before I went to bed at 2 this morning!
emoticon It's raining (AGAIN!) here in NE Ohio. April broke long-standing rain records - I only hope May doesn't do the same. I do plan on walking outside this afternoon if it's just rain I'm dealing with, but there's a chance of a thunderstorm. I draw the line at walking with a metal umbrella in my hand when lightning's in the sky!
I am going for my yearly mammogram early this afternoon. My mom and cousin and I always schedule them together and then go out to lunch. Mom is a 22 year breast cancer survivor. Vicki, my cousin, is 11 months younger than I am (60 to my 61) and has been having some health issues. She's having some skin cancer removed tomorrow.
Other than those things (walking and mammogram) I have nothing but house cleaning scheduled for today.
emoticon I'm really committed to making May a great month. I've started giving myself a "gold star goodie" when I stay on track. So far, there are 3 on my page. Those 3 days are the longest consecutive days I've eaten within my ranges and exercised in a long time!

Viv, you have energy to take the kids to the aquarium. We need to visit the one in Atlanta.

Mary, I hope that you feel better.

I'm still on another time zone. I finally got up at 3:00 a.m. I had been awake for some time.
I will take a nap later.

Everyone, have a great week.

Welcome back Kay. You will have to share about your trip I love Paris.
I am exhausted, after the over night Wedding watch as I mentioned I got the kids and dog for the weekend. Took the kids to Chicago on the train yesterday to the Aquarium - what was I thinking!
We left at 6:00 am and got back at 7:00 they enjoyed it and I walked 16,162 steps according to my pedometer though it felt like a lot more.
Need to get back to the office tomorrow for a rest.
Have a good Sunday everyone.

Its always too soon to quit.

It may take me longer to get to my goal than my original plan but I will get there.

Welcome back Kay

Vivienne - your party sounded just great. I saw on TV that a small group of Red Hatters in New Jersey were planning quite a party at someone's house.

I watched so much of it - can't believe it.

We just returned from France. I just wanted to check in and thank all the leaders that posted the April tips for me. I will start again tomorrow at some time. We haven't slept in about 15 hours. There is a 6 hour time difference.
We did get to watch most of the wedding. We were on the same time as England, and we could get BBC. I did think the dress was a classic.
Take care,

Just got back from the overnight Royal Wedding watch, had a really good time. The new Duchess of Cambridge was a beautiful bride.
May need a nap later today as I only got 4 1/2 hours sleep and I am munchkin and dog sitting for the weekend starting at 4:00 today.
Have a good day ladies
Happy Birthday Cathy.

The BBC coverage of the royal wedding is 9am to 1.30pm on Friday 29th April,we are about 4 or 5 hours ahead of the USA.
I have just been watching the news this morning there are people camping out on the streets of London already to get a good spot.I hope the weather keeps fine for them there is a risk of showers according to the weather forecast.
Vivienne your party sounds lots of fun.

You Gals are going all out for this wedding. Sounds like a lot of fun though.
I think I will get my GS to set the TV to tape it, because I will not get up or stay up for it.
Have a great time, Rosalyn

We are having a Royal Wedding PJ party tomorrow night. We have rented the theatre at a local hotel. Will meet for dinner at 6:30 then hang at the pool/spa area and play games.
Some of us are taking rooms to catch a few hours sleep, then we will up at 3:00 am to watch the wedding eat cake and toast the couple with champagne. Will take photos.
There will be 46 Red Hatters and I am sure we will have fun.

Hey Grace what a great idea.
I am for that, Hugs Rosalyn

Rosalyn Larson I am so happy to be on Maintenance.
It took 2 years but it was worth it. I am going to keep it in a 5#s range up or down. My Promise is I will never ever do that to myself again-----Rosalyn

I've got an idea!! How about catering to the older generation who probably don't have a lot of holidays left in their lives, instead of the younger generation who have their whole lives, with many year left before them!

Yep Gals, I agree.
The kids aren't kids any more but 20--28 yrs old, but still it was a dad day.
That is an Easter we won't forget in a hurry. Hugs Rosalyn

Good morning all. I'm doggie sitting for a neighbor while she has a recall issue for her car taken care of. Went to the PO/bank this morning, so other than some laundry, today is a do nothing day. But I'm sure I'll find SOMETHING to do - HA!!

Yes - heading to Germany tomorrow (will arrive Thursday morning). I'm going to try to keep up with my tracking & posting here, but it will be rather sporadic --- my main goal is to spoil my grandson emoticon

Speaking of traditions --- since neither my husband or I were big ham/turkey eaters, I always made lasagna for Easter & Thanksgiving! After DH passed away, I remember having a co-worker join us for Easter because she couldn't get back to Chicago. She couldn't wait to tell her family that she had lasagna for Easter emoticon

Everyone have a great day!!!

I feel for you, I did not make ham but Leg O Lamb this is a little more traditional.
Since when do kids pick the menu for holidays. If I had let my kids when they were your we would have had hot dogs and beans all the time.
Feel better soon.

Grace you are so right.
That is what I expected to eat, and maybe baked bean etc.
Stan didn't want to go and I made him.
And all he could say all evening and even after going to bed, "That was the worst meal I ever had in my life"
At least she should have told us what she making so we could have stayed home and eat something that didn't make us sick. Hugs Rosalyn

OH ROSALYN, I feel your pain ! I can't eat Mexican food either. Don't you just hate it when they mess with tradition? What happened to BAKED HAM?! This is one example of when kids should be seen and not heard!

The rain stopped long enough to dry out the yard so at least the front could be mowed before I leave on my trip! emoticon

Even though I'm all packed & ready to go, there always seems to be a lot of little odds 'n ends that pop up on my to-do list.

Walked on the trail with some people from my senior group. Walked for about an hour at a pretty good pace. Then we went to for coffee/tea. A nice morning.
