Sorry you I won't turn in points this week.

I did all what I can do, now its in GOD's hands. I made up my mind today to not let it get to me this weekend and put it on the back burner. This week I got in touch with so many different agencies. I need a break my adrenaline was pumping all week.

Hope- prayers speedy healing,

KarenMarie and Cathy- Hope all is well

I was going to not do next month challenge but I will. I can't let this control my emotions and health.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Hope---.I am happy your appointment didn't take long. I will be praying
for you. .

I did make my goal of 3 fruits and 1 veggie a day, My biggest obstacle is not eating in the middle of the night when I get up to take mom to the bathroom.. So that's what I will be working on. I did not make my goal last night. My exercise for today was pushing mom in the wheelchair in the park... CJ 10 min exercise streak is now at 812 days. My happy today was
going to the park for lunch, I went with Jeanne, mom. Elijah, Natalie , and Elijah and Natilie mom Shannon,

Hello Savvy Snackers! I had an eye doctor appointment today because I have a bump on my eyelid. He said it was a blocked tear duct that has gotten infected, He gave me a prescription for an antibiotic cream, and hopefully that will clear it up. Tomorrow I am going back to Birmingham for a pre-op appointment before my surgery next week. Iím hoping that it wonít take very long.

Karenmarie Ė Good for you for walking today. Iím glad you had fun with Natalie.

Cathy Ė I hope your new Crocs help your toe. I hope you have a successful trip. Thank you for the good wishes.

Amy Ė I hope you had a good day.

Hello Friends!

This is a quick check-in. My toe has been feeling better until yesterday. I did a lot of walking yesterday because we had a lot of errands to run. I wanted to get some shoes that wouldn't put pressure on my toe. I had planned to get some sandals but then I saw some Crocs and ended up getting some. I have small feet so it was hard to find a pair I liked in my size.

I'm finishing up some last minute stuff for our website, trying to get packed, clean the house, finish up laundry and get things ready for our friend that will be looking after the birds while we are gone.

I probably won't get a chance to check-in tomorrow since we are leaving on Thursday but I will try to check in.

Hope - I'm so sorry to hear that your cancer has come back. I'm sending you lots of positive thoughts and prayers that you won't have to do much chemo and that you'll beat it again!! emoticon

Hello Savvy Snackers! I had to go to Birmingham today for a PET scan. Between all the waiting time at the hospital and all the rush hour traffic leaving town, it took almost twelve hours all total. So I am really tired.

Karenmarie Ė Reading at the ice cream parlor sounds really nice.

Amy and Cathy Ė I hope you both had a good day.

Hello Savvy Snackers! Sorry I havenít been here much lately! I hope you all are doing well. We had a great trip to Callaway Gardens. I think Iím going to do this weekís blog about our trip, so I can show lots of pictures. I had two favorite parts of the trip. One was going to the garden chapel. It had several pretty stained glass windows. My other favorite part was going to the butterfly center. There is a big building like a greenhouse, and hundreds of butterflies are in there. You go in and they are flying all around you. It was really cool.

Friday I had the second interview for that part-time job. Itís at a place that teaches arts and crafts and DIY projects. It was a group interview, and there were four of us there applying for the job. The lady had us actually do one of the projects. We stained a piece of wood, then used a stencil to paint words on it. It was fun to do, but there wasnít much interviewing. She didnít ask us very much, so I donít know how sheís going to decide on who to hire. She also has two more group interview sessions set up for other people, so a lot of people have applied for the job. It would be a fun job, but I donít want to get my hopes up too much about it.

Cathy Ė I hope your toe gets better. Good luck on your trip!

Karenmarie Ė Iím so sorry about the news that you have arthritis and canít do most of your exercise dvdís. I hope you can find some other exercises to do. I hope your new medicine helps, too.

Amy Ė It sounds like the marketplace is a pain.

Hello Savvy Snackers!

The last couple of days have been super busy and I just never got a chance to get in here to chat. Yesterday afternoon, the wife of a co-worker/friend of hubby is starting to become a good friend of mine. Anyway, she is an occupational therapist but also knows that some homeopathic treatments can help along with western medicine, so to speak. Yesterday, she had me come over to their house so she could try to help my toe. She massaged my toe, foot, ankle and leg. She then told me to get some castor oil and a piece of cotton flannel from Natural Grocers as well as some Glad Press & Seal from the grocery store. She had me spread a bunch of castor oil on the piece of flannel on one side, then place the flannel with the side that didn't have the castor oil on it on top of a large piece of Press & Seal and wrap the entire thing around my foot and especially over the toe. I did that last night before going to bed and my toe looked better this morning when I first took it off. Then it started to look puffy and red once I started to walk around on it. During the day she has me taking a piece of gauze soaked in the castor oil and some CBD ointment and wrapping it around the toe and securing it with some of that self adhesive stretchy cloth like tape that they use in the hospital and doctor's office after they draw your blood. I'm hoping that doing all of this will help my toe.

I'm not going to do my points for week 4. We're leaving here Thursday morning and we still have a lot to do before we leave. I'll do my best to come chat with all of you each day but I don't know how much time I'll have. I wish all of you the best of luck in achieving your goals the remainder of this month. Maybe some of us will be on the same team next month.

I'll try to get back in here later to reply to everyone's posts from the past couple of days. Have a great day ladies!

AMY- Good job getting the grass done. I didn't know you work with insurance,

CATHY- I am sorry your toe still hurt. . I hope you find some shoe to wear,

Hope- I hope you having fun at Callaway Gardens.

I did make my goal of 3 fruits and 1 veggie a day, My biggest obstacle is not eating in the middle of the night when I get up to take mom to the bathroom.. So that's what I will be working on. I did not make my goal last night. My exercise today was Richard Simmons stretching to the classic. CJ and my 10 min exercise streak is now at 805 days. My happy today was watching mom and my great niece Natalie for the 1st time alone. It went well.

Good morning Savvy Snackers!

I was able to cut the grass yesterday. Hopefully today I will be able to rake if the rain permits.

Yesterday I had to complete registration for the marketplace. I printed out my certificate today. Even though we don't offer health coverage through the marketplace we still have to do the updates to sell health insurance with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of LA. The 1st year we did offer it and it took 3 hours on the phone just to get a quote. We don't have time or patience to offer that. We have other clients and insurances to do as well. So if someone needs health insurance through the marketplace I give them the number to a lady that just does health care.

Cathy- Sorry to hear that your toe is swollen. Good luck on your hubby's dr appt. I hope you
can find some sandals to wear and the little folding chair.

KarenMarie- Good job on making one of your goals Glad you was able to spend time with Elijah and Natalie. I
bet they are a handful but so much fun.

Hope- Enjoy your two day vacation!

Good Evening Savvy Snackers!

My toe is swollen again today even though I haven't really done anything. I did take an epsom salt bath hoping that the epsom salt would help bring down the swelling but it hasn't. I'm back to wearing the shoe that they gave me after my surgery since it doesn't put pressure on that toe. I'm hoping that I'll get time this weekend to go look for a sandal of some sort to wear.

Tomorrow, hubby has a doctor's appointment and then I have to meet with my trainer.

The website is mostly finished now. Just have to do some tweeking and change out some of the graphics.

Amy - We got rain last night and it threatened to rain all day but it never did.
Yeah, I know what you are talking about but I think a little folding camp chair would be better and less bulky. Besides I don't want people to think that I'm an invalid.

Karenmarie - Thanks, I too am happy my doctor's appointment went well. Yeah, I thought recreational marijuana was probably illegal there.
I'm sorry you didn't make your freggies goal today but great job making your goal of no late night eating. Good work stretching so you can continue your exercise streak with CJ. That's nice you got to spend time with Elijah and Natalie. I'm sure they bring you a lot of joy and that you miss them when they are spending time with their other grandma.

Hope - I hope you had a good day!

AMY- I am happy you didn't get rain.

CATHY- I am happy your doctor appointment went well.
Recreational Marijuana isn't legal in Ohio but medical is with a
doctor prescription..

Hope- I am happy you enjoy your handbell practice. Good job on your
interview. I am praying you do good on the group interview and get
the job.

I did not make my goal of 3 fruits and 1 veggie a day, My biggest obstacle is not eating in the middle of the night when I get up to take mom to the bathroom.. So that's what I will be working on. I did make my goal last night. My exercise today was Richard Simmons stretching to the classic. CJ and my 10 min exercise streak is now at 804 days. My happy today wasspending time with Elijah and Natalie. They been at their other grandma the last couple of days.

Good morning Savvy Snackers!

Not much going on here but if it doesn't rain I will try to cut the grass later today. That will be
my exercise.


Hope-That is great news on the second interview! Good luck! Glad you had fun at your neighbors dinner party.
Have a great time on your 2 day vacation. It sounds really nice.

KarenMarie- Glad you was able to get your xray. Hope you get some good results.

Cathy- Glad your doctor appointment was good. Yes, bringing a chair sounds like a good idea. Too bad you didn't know someone that had one of those walkers with wheels
that has a seat on it. One of my clients has one. I guess you sit and rest when you get tired.

Good Afternoon Savvy Snackers!

Went to my doctor's appointment this morning and he took x-rays. He said that the x-rays looked good and that the callous between my toes was beginning to go away. I guess I've been doing too much with my feet (i.e. walking, using the leg press machine, the treadmill and other things). He said that for the next couple of months I need to stay off it as much as possible. Not sure how that's going to work with us going to PAX in about a week. I'm not entirely sure how big PAX is but I know there is at least 6 floors and almost 1 million people will be there. Hubby suggested we bring a little folding camp chair that I can sit in when I need to.

I met with my trainer this afternoon and she had to change up some of the exercises she had planned for me to do. I went to get my medical marijuana license renewed. I just have to get on the state website to fill out some info now.

Yesterday, my sister gave me a clock made out of a record. The record has cut out of it the name of a band that I like. She also bought some accent/throw pillows to go on our patio furniture that helps to tie the outdoor rug in with the furniture.

Amy - Your niece is so cute and funny! I'm glad your sister didn't get hurt too badly and that all of you had a good laugh. I love that your niece asked the prinicipal if she wanted to race and then cheated. lol Skating once a month sounds like fun and a great way to get in some more exercise. Glad you got an afternoon nap in. That's funny about the kittens taking over your glider but they get off when they see you coming. I'm happy to hear they are doing well.
Sorry you didn't get to go for a walk with your friend and that it was canceled today because of your son's CCS class meeting. We got some rain tonight even though it wasn't forecasted.
Hahaha I can see how you would have a vision of me putting our birds to bed. Peep, likes for me to put him in his cage when it's time for bed. They actually have a flat piece of acrylic that we attached to a purch in each of their cages that they sleep on at night.
Yes, MMJ (Medical Marijuana) is legal here but you have to go to a doctor that will certify that you do indeed need MMJ. Recreational is legal here but MMJ is cheaper and you can get things that the general public can't get. Once the doctor says that you do need MMJ you have to fill out some paperwork on a state website and then wait several days for them to look over what the doctor submitted and you submitted before they'll let you print out a new MMJ license.

Karenmarie - I had a really nice birthday celebration with my mom and sister. How interesting that you nephew works in computer security.
WTG making your freggies goal and your goal of no late night eating yesterday. Great job continuing your exercise streak with CJ. I'm sorry you were having troubles with your computer again but I'm glad you got it working again.
Both Dr. appointments went well. I know it's difficult to get a doctor to prescribe marijuana for kids even though other doctor's think it would be beneficial. Is medical marijuana legal there? If I remember correctly, recreational isn't legal in very many states.
I'm sorry you didn't make your freggies goal or your goal of no late night eating. I know you'll get back on track soon though. Good work on your exercise streak. I hope the doctor can give you something so your knees won't hurt you anymore.

Hope - Glad you had a nice time at the neighbor's party. Glad you enjoyed getting back to handbell practice. Yay for the phone interview going well. I'll keep my fingers crossed that the 2nd interview on Friday goes well too. It sounds like you had a really busy day. I hope you have a great time on your two-day vacation.
The doctor's appointment for my toe went well. He basically said that I've been using it too much and I need to stay off it as much as possible. That's easier said than done though. lol

Hello Savvy Snackers! Sorry I didnít make it in here last night, but we got in late and I just went to bed. We ate dinner last night across the street at our neighborís house. They had several families from our neighborhood over, and we ended up staying kind of late. It was a nice party. I had very busy days both today and yesterday. Yesterday I also had handbell practice. We took the summer off, so it was our first practice in a while. It was nice to get to play again. I also had that phone interview yesterday. It went well, and Iím going in for a second interview on Friday. Itís a group interview, so I donít really know what to expect. Iím not sure how a group interview works.

Today I volunteered at our church library, then I substituted in another handbell choir. We have two adult handbell choirs at my church, and we often substitute for each other when people canít come. Then tonight we went to a fundraising dinner for a program that our church sponsors. It provides training for unemployed women to help them get jobs. The university athletic director was the speaker, and he gave a very nice speech. He talked a lot about his mother, who raised him as a single parent, and who was a big influence in his life.

Tomorrow my parents and my aunt and I are going on a little two-day vacation. We are going to a place in Georgia called Callaway Gardens. We will stay overnight in a cottage there. Iím looking forward to it.

Karenmarie Ė Iím glad you got your x-ray done. Good job exercising.

Amy Ė Sorry you couldnít walk with your friend. The skating on Saturday sounds like a lot of fun. Iím glad the kittens are doing well.

Cathy Ė Thatís nice that you had a good day with your mom and sister. How did your doctorís appointment for your toe go?

AMY- I hope your rain stop.

CATHY- I am happy you have a good time with your mom and sis,.
I hope you have 2 good doctor appointment. They talking about giving
Elijah medical marijuana for his epilepsy. But it hard to find a doctor
who will give a prescription for marijuana even with the therapist thinking 'it will lessen his seizures.

Hope- How did the job interview go? I hope you having a good day.

I did not make my goal of 3 fruits and 1 veggie a day, My biggest obstacle is not eating in the middle of the night when I get up to take mom to the bathroom.. So that's what I will be working on. I did not make my goal last night. My exercise today was Richard Simmons stretching to the classic. CJ and my 10 min exercise streak is now at 803 days. My happy today was getting my x-ray taken. I can't wait for my appointment on Friday.

Good morning Savvy Snackers!

I didn't walk last night with my friend Anne. She had a migraine. Tonight I canceled due to son CCD class meeting. It is like bible study.

So far today no rain. I guess it will wait until later. Yesterday it rained 3 different times. Oh well.


Cathy- glad you had a great time with your mom and sister. You made me giggle when you said you put the birds to bed.I had a vision in my head.
Best wishes on your dr appt tomorrow. You have to have a license to use medical marijuana? It is now legal here in LA.

KarenMarie- great job on making your goal last night. Glad you was able to get your computer running.

Hope- How is is going for you this week? You must be really busy.

Hello Savvy Snackers!

This is going to be super quick and short. I had a really nice day with my mom and sister. We had a nice lunch at a nearby restaurant and then came back here to spend some more time together. After they left I wrote my blog, watched a little tv with hubby, put the birds to bed, went for a walk, went grocery shopping afterwards, made dinner and now I need to get to bed.

Tomorrow morning I have an appointment with the doctor who did my toe surgery because my toe is pretty swollen. Then tomorrow afternoon I am meeting with my trainer and then a little later in the afternoon I have another doctor's appointment to renew my medical marijuana license. I have to have the topical ointment I use for my back. Nothing else works so I have to renew my license.

I'll do my best to catch up with you ladies tomorrow. Goodnight friends..... emoticon

Good morning Savvy Snackers!

Saturday I had a really good time. We went skating. I took the kids, Lauren my niece and her mom(my sister) skating. Lauren is so cute skating and she is really fast. She skates like she is on a skateboard or scooter. Only the right leg moves! I am still sore today. I didn't fall at all but I had my eyes everywhere around me because the kids are falling all around me. My sister fell and knocked her head on the carport. She was coming really fast from the skating floor onto the carpet and whipped out. All I could do was crack up laughing while a lady on the side had a shocked look on her face. When she saw my sister started laughing she started laughing.

Lauren's school principal was there skating as well. I introduced Lauren to her and she was excited. She even asked the principal if she wanted to race. The principal said yes and Lauren took off. She cheats like that! lol

I think we might make skating a once a month thing.

Sunday was church and rest day. I ate red beans and rice for lunch. I didn't have rice in over a month. After I ate I was so sleepy. We watched a movie and I feel asleep. Not too often I take afternoon naps.

The kittens are doing well. They are taking over my glider but when they see me coming they get off.

Cathy - Hope you had a great birthday celebration.

Hope good luck on the phone interview. SOunds like a great time you had celebrating your mom's birthday.

KarenMarie-Awesome on seeing your nephew and his family. I bet you really enjoyed time with his daughters.
So glad you have a dr to see about your knee. Good luck with that.

Hello Savvy Snackers!

I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to come chat yesterday. I met with my trainer and then walked home. I straightened up the house a little when I got home and cleaned the master bathroom. Randy mowed the front yard yesterday while I cleaned. We were both pretty tired after we put the birds to bed. We decided to go to SmÝrbrÝ, the Scandinavian restaurant. We had a healthy meal and then decided to get a little dessert. We got some maple gingersnap gelato. Oh man, it was sooooo good!

Today, we gave the birds their weekly bath/shower after breakfast. Then I cleaned 2 of the 4 bathrooms we have. We rarely are in the basement and therefore very rarely use the bathroom down there so I didn't clean it. I changed the sheets on the bed and did a load of laundry too. I still need to do another load.

Tomorrow, my mom and sister are coming over to celebrate my birthday with me. My mom has a lot of pain in her back from an accident she was in many years ago but I'm hoping she won't be in much pain tomorrow and that they'll both feel like sitting out on the patio afterwards.

Karenmarie - The t-shirts and hats really do look great. WTG making your freggies goal and your goal of no late night eating yesterday. Walking around Target is good exercise. I'm glad you got to go shopping with your sister.
I'm sorry you didn't make your freggies goal or your goal of no late night eating today. You've been doing so well with your goals that I'm sure you'll get back on track soon. Good job doing stretching exercises. I'm glad you got to see your nephew and his family. What does your nephew do for work in the Middle East? Yay, I'm happy you found a doctor to see about your knees. I hope the x-rays will help the doctor figure out why your knees are bothering you so much. Yes, Tuesday and Friday is much better than October. I hope you'll be pain free soon.

Hope - WTG doing yoga and ST yesterday. Happy Birthday to your mom. I hope she enjoyed celebrating her birthday with family. Dinner and playing cards with some friends sounds like a great evening. Yeah, we are planning on giving out the t-shirts at PAX. It should be good publicity.
Good work doing both videos. I like Leslie Sansone's walking workouts. I've done a few Coach Nicole videos but not many. I'm sending lots of positive thoughts your way that you'll get the part-time job. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you too!

Amy - I hope you had a good weekend.

Hello Savvy Snackers! Today I did a Walk Away the Pounds video and a Coach Nicole strength training video for my exercise. This morning I went to church, but thatís about all Iíve done today. Tomorrow I have a phone interview for a part-time job. Please keep good thoughts for me!

Karenmarie Ė How nice that you got to see your nephew and his family. Iím glad you found a doctor, and that you can be seen so soon.

Cathy and Amy Ė I hope you both had a good weekend!

AMY- I hope you have a great weekend.

CATHY- I hope you have a good night sleep. I hope you
have a fun day.

Hope- I never hear of Five Crowns. I am happy you have fun celebrating
your mom birthday.

I did not make my goal of 3 fruits and 1 veggie a day, My biggest obstacle is not eating in the middle of the night when I get up to take mom to the bathroom.. So that's what I will be working on. I did not make my goal last night. My exercise today was Richard Simmons stretching to the classic. CJ and my 10 min exercise streak is now at 801 days. My happy today was
going to my ex sister-in-law for a cookout. My nephew and his family was
there. We only get to see him once a year/ He live in the middle East and only come home once a year. I love seeing his two daughter Aiyia and Myra.
The girls are 18 months and 4 years. On the knee issue I found a doctor to see. I get xray on Tuesday and see the doctor on Friday. That much better than October what the other doctor want to see me.

Hello Savvy Snackers! Today I did yoga and strength training for my exercise. Iíve spent the last two days celebrating my motherís birthday. Last night I went out to dinner with my parents, my aunt, my sister, and my nephew. We had a nice dinner at Outback, and we gave my mom her presents. Tonight my parents and I went over to the house of a couple of friends of ours. We ate dinner, then we played the card game Five Crowns. It was fun.

Karenmarie Ė 800 days is amazing! You should be so proud of yourself. Iím glad you enjoyed shopping with your sister. Target is a great store.

Cathy Ė Iím glad you were able to catch up on some sleep. Thatís nice that you got t-shirts and hats made up for PAX. That should be good publicity.

Amy Ė I hope you had a good day today.

Good evening Savvy Snackers!

Today, I didn't do much of anything but nap. I really needed to catch up on my sleep. I haven't slept well pretty much all week. I tried to fight the urge but I just couldn't keep my eyes open or focus on anything. I did do a load of laundry though. Two weeks from today we'll be at PAX. We've got t-shirts all made up and some trucker hats too.

Still have a lot of work to do before we leave on Thursday the 29th. I need to clean the house before my mom and sister come over on Monday and finish up the laundry.

Amy - I thought Louisiana was pretty flat. lol Not like here where we have tons of hills. :) Oh man, that would not be fun getting attacked when mowing the yard. Yeah, I was happy to get home. People drive really crazy. The young military guys always seem to be the worst. They're always in a super big hurry and take unnecessary risks.

Hope - Wishing your mom a very happy birthday! I hope you had a good day.

KarenMarie - I hope you had a good day too.

Good evening Savvy Snackers!

It's been a long day and I'm about ready to head to bed. I met with my trainer this morning and at the end of our session she helped me to stretch out some of the soreness from our session on Tuesday. I need to remember to do that more often! I woke up with a headache this morning. I'm not sure if the disc in my back has slipped out of place again or if it's just that my muscles are still tight from training on Tuesday. I got on my inversion table this morning for about 5 minutes which helped a little but the stretching I did today helped some too.

When I got home from training at the Y I hurried and wiped down my arm pits with soap and water so that I wouldn't be stinky while my sister did my hair. lol Then I got changed and we left to get some coffee before heading down to Pueblo.

On the way home, thanks to Google maps, we were notified that there was an accident on the Interstate so we had to take one of many alternative routes home. Then a woman switched lanes right in front of us without signaling and nearly hit us! We saw another accident on the alternative route we were taking too. I was thankful when we got home! I foam rolled again this evening because I still have a slight headache. I'm going to get on my inversion table one more time before going to bed in hopes I'll sleep better tonight.

Amy - Wow, that's a lot of steps and push mowing is good exercise. Do you have any hills that you have to mow? That's a bummer that you ordered the cushions but didn't see that the glider wasn't part of the package and price. I've done things like that before. The glider swing sure came in fast! Where we lived in Missouri the tree squirrels loved climbing all over our glider swing! One would even lay on it with one front leg and one back leg hanging off it! LOL I'm glad you like your glider swing and was able to get it for a good price. That's a very good possibility that the cats and kittens will take it over. lol At least you'll have extra cushions when the ones that came with the swing wear out.
It's hard to believe Lauren is already in Kindergarten! My great nephew is starting preschool. It's supposed to be like Head Start but it's called something else. That's funny that she was excited to go but couldn't wait until after school to see the kittens. The kittens are adorable!!
I know exactly what you are talking about how "it hurts so good". Reminds me of that song in the 80's by John Mellencamp. lol But yes, it hurts a bit but it feels so good afterwards. It really helps to work out the soreness. There are some areas that are difficult to use it though, like your inner thighs. ;-) That's cool that you use the carport as a patio and now for a family of cats. That's funny...."looks like cat farm". LOLOL

Karenmarie - I'm happy I got my meds too. That's a long time to wait to see the doctor. I hope you can find another doctor to see before then.
I'm sorry you didn't make your freggies goal but it's great that you are eating more veggies! WTG making your goal of no late night eating again. You're doing so well with that goal! I hope the knee exercises help your knees to feel better. I'm glad you had a nice mass.

Hope - Good work walking and doing yoga for your exercise today. I hope you had a nice choir practice. One of these days I'll have to attempt to read Pride and Prejudice again. I'm glad it's getting better.
My legs were better today but the inside of my legs are still kind of sore. I hope I sleep better tonight too.

Good morning Savvy Snackers!

Yesterday I pushed mowed for my exercise. I got in my 11314 steps.

Let me tell you sometimes you know how to read for nothing. The beginning of the month, I ordered, so I thought a glider swing for $60 online at Walmart. It had different cushions and different prices. I took the cheapest one. Well the cushion came in and not the glider. So I thought maybe it comes in separate. I went look at my email and omg it states cushion only no glider. So, Tuesday morning I went online and order a glider swing for $102.00 on sale. It came in Yesterday with Fed X at 1 pm. and it came from TN. Y'all that is a day later. That was super fast. When I got home yesterday my brother and son had up the glider with the cushion on it. It really looks nice and I love it! I glides so good. Only thing I am afraid the cats and kittens will take it over. I could have figured out how to return the cushion online but decided to keep it.

Today was Lauren's 1st day of kindergarten. Tomorrow the boy's go and then Monday will be all of them. She was excited to go but couldn't wait until after school comes to go see the kittens. Here is a picture of them all on a little wooden table.



Cathy- Glad fed ex showed up. How do you like the foam roller. I haven't used mine in awhile but it find
its hurts so good when using it. Does that make any sense? I don;t park under the carport because it has scallops in front of it
and my SUV is too tall to fit under it because of it and the luggage rack on top my suv.So I use the carport as a patio and looks like cat farm.

Hope- Sounds like you had a nice time with your mom and aunt. Don't you feel good when you buy presents early. How old will your mom be? Great job on the exercise.

Karen Marie-I hope you find a doctor soon that takes your insurance. Getting hand me downs is so nice and better than buying new....it's FREE!

Good Evening Savvy Snackers!

We went to bed really late last night and then got up kind of late. My sleep kept getting interrupted this morning by phone calls and text messages. Normally, I turn my phone off before going to bed but I was afraid I would miss FedEx ringing our Ring video doorbell since the old doorbell isn't hooked up anymore. FedEx finally showed up late this afternoon with my medicine.

After breakfast I worked on the website some more. I recently bought some water/aqua globes for my plants so that I don't have to worry about them drying out too much while we're gone. We went for a walk this evening. My legs are really sore from my workout yesterday. I think I'll use my foam roller for a little bit before going to bed. I missed a call from the doctor's office that did my toe surgery. I'll have to call tomorrow when I get home from the gym before I head to Pueblo. It's nice having my sister do my hair for me because I get to see her every 4 or 5 weeks.

Amy - Oh my! That's a lot of kitties! Baby animals are so adorable! You'll have to be really careful when you pull the car out of the carport with all of those baby kittens around. You'd feel awful if one got killed. I wish I could help you with the kittens. Good luck taking care of all of them. Mama cat must have felt that her babies would be safer in your carport. Maybe you can ask around to see if someone you know wants one when they get a little older.
Thank you, my toe is getting better. Taking a piece of bone out of your body is bound to lead to swelling and pain. lol I wasn't icing my toe because I didn't think it helped that much but now I that I've been doing it every night for the past few nights, I think it is helping. Yay, you're welcome and I'm glad the Melatonin helped. Wow, that's still really warm for 6 pm.

Karenmarie - Thanks, my sister does a good job of cutting my hair. Yeah, I switched my training session to 10 am so that I can keep my training session and still go to Pueblo to get my hair done. It was nice to be able to walk home for the first time since my toe surgery. It was also nice that Randy walked halfway and met me to walk with me back home. :)
I'm sorry you didn't make your freggies goal but you've been doing really well with your goal of no late night eating. Good work doing Richard Simmons' stretch workout. That's nice your niece gave you some of her clothes that she didn't want anymore. I'm sorry you are having troubles finding a doctor that takes your insurance. I hope you find one soon.

Hope - You did well with your exercising today. How nice to go out to lunch with your mom and aunt. That's nice of you to pick out a shirt for your mom that will be from your dad. Thanks, I too hope it continues to get better. I too am sorry it still gets swollen. ;-) The doctor said that it would probably swell for two months after my surgery so I expected it would.

Hello Savvy Snackers! Today I walked and did strength training for my exercise. Today I went out to lunch with my mother and my aunt. After that I went shopping for my motherís birthday. Her birthday is Saturday. I already bought her a present, but today I was shopping for a present from my dad. She wants a shirt, and he asked me to go pick one out for him. I found one I think sheíll like.

Karenmarie Ė Good for you for exercising and for not eating during the night. That was nice of your niece to give you some clothes. Iím sorry youíre having trouble finding a doctor. Iím sure thatís frustrating.

Amy Ė Oh, how fun to have all those kittens! They sound adorable. The mother cat must have decided she likes your carport.

Cathy Ė Glad you had a good workout with your trainer. I hope your toe continues to get better. Sorry it still gets swollen.

AMY- Congrats on the cats. Good luck with them.

CATHY=., I hope you get a good haircut. It probably a good idea
to switch your training session. Good job working out today. Woo hoo
for walking home.

Hope- Good job walking, doing strength training and yoga. I am happy you
have a good dentist visit. I don't like dentist visit either.

Good afternoon Savvy Snackers!

Well looks like we had two cats and now we have 7 of them. A mother and her 4 babies showed up under my carport. The mom showed up on Saturday. She is a pretty little thing and looked like our cat Gram.(tan/yellow stripes and white) and she had a big belly so I thought she was pregnant. Yesterday I went to my mom for lunch and Lauren came run and told me I had to go walk with her and her mom to see something across the street. I went and there was 4 baby kittens. They was so cute. One looks like the mom and the others all look different, one is white with blue eyes, one is black calico with green eyes like Chance and the other one calico. Of course God knows how many times a day Lauren and my son Chance went check out the babies. Well today when we go to leave to bring Chance to school they all under the carport. The momma cat must have went got them during the night. They are big enough to walk, climb and run so they must be a month or a little older. Oh my Gosh what will I do?

Cathy- Great job on the walking home and the workout with your trainer. I hope your toe gets better
and if it helps to ice, ice it! I did remember to bring the melatonin and I took it and it helped thanks.
Around 6pm the sun was still blaring and its was around 86 degrees.

Hope- give me some of your energy! Glad your dentist appt came out good.


KarenMarie- Natalie is 3, they are so cute at that age. Yes, its been raining here too every day. I love it when I can sit and relax and read my book.

Hello Savvy Snackers!

This afternoon I met with my trainer. She worked me out good and am feeling pretty tired tonight. I had planned to go down to Pueblo West on Friday so that my sister could do my hair but I had to reschedule it for Thursday. I have an appointment on Thursday afternoon with my trainer but I think I'm going to move it up to in the morning since I'm not sure if I'll get back in time.

I walked home this afternoon after my training session. It was the first time I've done that since my toe operation. When I got home I went to work on our website and then this evening I had to go to the grocery store to pick up some food for the week.

My toe can get pretty swollen during the day without the ace bandage. I've been icing it at night for around 10 mintues before going to bed which I think is helping too.

Amy - Sorry it's raining there again. That's not very smart of them to repave the roads right when school starts. They've been working on the main road just around the corner from us all summer and had one of the roads coming into this neighborhood from that street blocked off twice. They're supposed to be replacing the water main valves. Randy keeps joking that they'r digging for gold! I hope you remembered to take your melatonin home. It's one of those things that your body makes but as you get older it doesn't make as much. It's always nice to go for a walk with someone. It helps the time pass by quicker. How hot is it in the evening when you walk?

Karenmarie - I like the rain just not nearly every day. I know you guys have had a lot of rain this year too. I'm sorry you have arthritis in your knees and that none of the creams work. I would definitely follow up with the doctor since you are still in pain.
I'm sorry you didn't make your freggies goal today but great job getting back on track with your goal of no late night eating. Good work doing a stretching exercise. I'm glad you got to spend time with your mom and read your book. How is your mom doing?

Hope - WTG going for a walk early in the morning, doing ST and some yoga! That's great you got a good report on your teeth. I'm not a fan of going to the dentist either. Glad your visit went smoothly.
Thanks, I too am glad our website is coming along.

Hello Savvy Snackers! This morning I got up early and went for a walk. I also did strength training and some yoga. Today I had a dentist appointment. I got my teeth cleaned, and they said everything looked good, so I donít have to go back again for 6 months. I donít like going to the dentist, so I was glad today was a pretty easy visit.

Karenmarie Ė Good job not eating during the night last night. Spending time with your mom and also reading your book sounds nice.

Amy Ė What a pain road work can be. Sorry it took you so long this morning.

Cathy Ė Iím glad your website is coming along.

AMY- I understand they working for roads around here too. Natalie my
great niece is 3 . Sheis a character too.

CATHY=., I am sorry about all your rain . We been having allot too. The
doctor says I have arthritic but none of the cream work. I think I need a
follow up.

Hope- I started Pride and Prejudice but didn't finish it. Good job
walking today.

I did not make my goal of 3 fruits and 1 veggie a day, My biggest obstacle is not eating in the middle of the night when I get up to take mom to the bathroom.. So that's what I will be working on. I did make my goal last night. My exercise today was Richard Simmons stretching to the classic. CJ and my 10 min exercise streak is now at 796 days. My happy today was spending time with mom. Also I got to read my book.

Good morning Savvy Snackers.

It is raining here today. They was also working on the highway this morning. I took me 45 minutes to bring son to school and come back home. Something that normally takes 10 minutes. Why do they wait to start black topping the road when school starts. They had all summer to do that and they wait to start the end of July.

Cathy- Yes, I have the gummies but forgot them at work so I didn't take them yet.
I was able to walk with my friend. We talk so much and the hour passes by. It
still was so hot though.

Hope- I didn't read that book. Maybe it will get better. It is nice to have quiet days.
Great job on getting your walk on.



Karen Marie- Lauren is 5 years old. She will be 6 in December. She is a character for sure.
Sorry your computer didn't work. Great job on getting your fruits and veggie a
day.

Good Evening Savvy Snackers!

Today I spent most of the day working on our website. It's coming along slowly but surely. I had hoped to spend some more time out on the patio on the new patio furniture but it threatened to rain when I took a break from working on the website. I probably should have gone for a walk but I got caught up in working. This summer has been so rainy too! Every week we get rain at least one or 2 days a week. We haven't really had summer.

Tomorrow afternoon I am meeting with my trainer. I need to do a little grocery shopping tomorrow too.

Amy - I used to be like you until our friend Wayne from California came out to visit. He got me out of my comfort zone. He will try pretty much anything. The chocolate cake is really good! Did you buy the gummy melatonin from Vitafusion? We've tried many other kinds of melatonin before. The capsules either didn't work or they would make us jittery. I hope you remember to take one and that it helps you to get some sleep. I hope you and your friend were able to go for a walk at the park.

Karenmarie - I did have a nice birthday. Thank you, my friend! I'm sorry your computer wasn't working correctly yesterday. WTG making your freggies goal. Sorry you didn't make your goal of no late night eating last night. You've been doing so well with that goal though that I'm sure you'll get back on track soon. I'm sorry your knees are still bothering you. Does the doctor know why your knees are hurting you? Naps are so nice especially if you are feeling really tired.

Hope - Good work doing some walking. I think I started reading Pride and Prejudice once but I don't think I got very far. I've tried reading books that are classics before and ended up not liking them. lol So I haven't tried to read any others.
Thank you, I too am glad I had a nice birthday. It was really nice to relax by the fire pit and just talk!

Hello Savvy Snackers! Today for my exercise I did a little walking. I just had a quiet day today, didnít really do much. Iím reading Pride and Prejudice, which Iíve never read before. So far it seems kind of silly, but I assume it gets better since itís such a classic. Have any of you read it?

Karenmarie Ė Sorry your computer wasnít working yesterday. Way to go exercising and eating your freggies.

Amy Ė Thatís nice that you have a friend to walk with.

Cathy Ė Iím so glad you had a nice birthday! Relaxing by the fire pit sounds nice.

Hello Savvy Snackers!

This is going to be short because it's REALLY late. I had a nice birthday. We went to our favorite local coffee shop for breakfast and coffee. Then we met our friend at Lowe's so we could get the last piece of patio furniture and the fire pit. He wasn't feeling well so he went home. Randy finished putting the furniture together and the fire pit. We were getting hungry at that time and wanted to go to an Italian restaurant downtown but we didn't have reservations and it was going to be 2 hours before we could get a reservation. We ended up going to another restaurant that's close by and you don't need a reservation. When we got home Randy lit the fire pit and we sat and talked for several hours.

My sister texted me this morning to wish me a happy birthday. I'll be seeing her on Friday so that she can color my hair and trim it.

Hope - I'm glad you enjoyed the movie. I was tempted to go see that the other day but we'll probably wait until it comes out on Amazon or Netflix. I hope you got your exercise in today. I ended up not getting any but I'm okay with that because I think sometimes you need a day here and there where you don't exercise. I wasn't a couch potato at least. lol
The Scandinavian restuarant has really good food and it's healthy.

Amy and Karenmarie - I hope both of you had a good day.
