Default Thursday Already!

Ha! I started to write this thread as "Wednesday" and suddenly realized I missed posting Wednesday completely, and here it is already Thursday. I have no excuse.

Anyway, the good news from Tuesday night was that I somehow lost 3 1/2 lbs. in a week that included an incredible birthday dinner and lots of "cheating." Can't explain that either!

It's been a nice week, weather wise, and we can spend our afternoons outdoors with the kids, which makes things somewhat easier, not that those kids are ever "easy"! Counting down the last 7 days before summer vacation!

Must get the guest room cleaned out today, and prepare for my first visitor since moving here almost 3 years ago!
I am hosting a Montreal-based singer/songwriter/musician/inspirational speaker at a weekend Ladies Night Out at our local pub. She has become an online friend over the past 2 years since I discovered her music. Can't wait to meet her!

Good morning mates. I don't know what is on the agenda today but I have some things I need to get done. Then, there is the neverending housework. After that, the kindle awaits. Hmm, guess I do know what I am doing after all. Nothing but the same old thing going on here.

Have a good day all.

Good morning
A little house work today along with watering some very dry grass.

Donna since youíve been on a certain daily calorie intake itís not unusual to loose after you increase calories for a short time. It jacks up your metabolism for some reason, however the trick is to get back to a controlled calorie intake. Expert say you should eat a little more from time to time to jump start the weight loss. Congrats!!

Default Thursday Already

Good morning, albeit an overcast one. That's a good thing, though, to keep the temp down.

Donna, congratulations on the weight loss.

Like Moraine, I plan to hit the Kindle today, but after I see the doctor.

Have a good day!

Good Afternoon Everyone!

Donna, I've gained back exactly 3.5 lbs of the 25 I have lost from not being able to get around the way I want to (pain; hernia surgery on the 26th). So don't feel like you're in that boat alone!! I'm not happy with myself, but I know I'll get the weight back off after surgery.

I have company coming in on the 25th, so I have to somehow get all my cleaning done before then! It is slow going but I am getting there. If I can get some laundry and dishes done today, I'll be happy. So much more to do though.

Blessings and prayers to those not feeling well.

Hope everything went okay at the Doctor, Judy.

As for the rest of you kids, gosh how I wish I was your age again.

The fluid retention problems are multiplying and Jeff's P/A, Julie, wanted to put me back in the hospital this morning. On top of that, one of my Oxygen tanks lost pressure so I had to go without last night. That translated to a miserable night! Anyway, I told Julie, "No deal, Lucille.".. At least give me one more day and I'm upping the lasix to 240 mg for the day. Time will tell but thus far, I'm not excited at the results. Looks as if there will be a problem in Mudville tomorrow. If I am forced to go, to say I'm depressed is the understatement of the year!

Prayers for all of those on the list and a call for Blessings abound!
