We got around 8 inches of snow so the grandkids were home yesterday.Glad they are back in school tonight.
I went to WW Monday night a day early for my weigh in because of the snow coming on Tuesday. I gained 1/4 pounds.. I was a little pissed, I had stayed on the plan. Then I got to thinking what Had I done for the past week. Sitting in my chair or sleeping because I felt so bad.. So that explained why i didn't lose more.. Back on the plan but I am really fighting with my mind.. I am wanting a lot of bad foods.. I am over the Pepsi thing but I miss my cheese...
About dogs, we don't have one. Rob has a dog, Chief. He has to be the best dog we have ever have. He is good with the kids and so loving. He listens, stays in the yard and if you yell at him to stop chasing a squirrel or rabbit he will stop.
I love Kay's dog Sophie, that is a dog that is spoiled..You should hear some of the stories about her.
I am listening to Rod, our gov of Illinois talking..This will be his last day as our gov... I will be glad but we could get someone worst.. I don't trust anyone in office...
Have a good day and stay warm.
Brrr, and greetings,
It's finally sunny here. It's still snowy, icy and cold but the sun is nice. The comments about dogs caught my attention. Especially when Brenda mentioned Sophie.
Here's Sophie's bio: About 4 yrs ago my son started telling us we'd mourned long enough for our schnauzer Parker. It took us 13 yrs to think about another dog. He had 2 boxers and was totally sold on them. So...off I went to look at boxers and Sophie found me. I drove probably 1 1/2 hrs to a small town. Saw an ad in paper, 4 boxers, 2 male, 2 female, 2 brindle and 2 white. I was told the white ones are not albino but just a white. The drawback for some people would be if you want to show them. I didn't so that wasn't any problem. It was April so I sat in this big farmhouse yard and played with all 4 pupppies..but one of them came over, backed into my lap and stayed put. So Sophie came home with me..she was the female brindle. First night I put her by my side of the bed with lots of "stuff" and kept petting her while she howled for her litter mates. Uh huh, that lasted about 15 minutes. I picked her up, put her between my husband and myself and she slept all night long. Not a peep out of her. Well obviously she won our hearts. When she got the potty training down she was a full-fledged member of the household. This is the order of our household...kid you not. I have wanted a king size bed for a long time (been married 40 yrs) but didn't need one. Well, my husband informed me Sophie needed more room as she grew..we had a new bed next day. Allrighty then: husband's recliner was getting some age on it but we've had worse for a lot longer, but again: Sophie needed more room to sit with him..yeah, you guessed it. New recliner. The one that tops it all (and there are many in that category) was when we were purchasing a new truck. We're pulling out of the driveway of the dealership and P.B. calls the manager and asks if the truck had bench or bucket seats...Sophie only liked bench seats. O.K., by now you got the picture...we bought a camper so she can go with us sometimes. Otherwise she stays with out son and his boxers. I didn't know boxers were so loving and personal. She likes to be touching one of us when we're around. If we're sitting, she's with us..obviously she sleeps with us..but she's so funny (and I'm very biased) and cute. But she still thinks everyone who comes to the door is coming to see her. Brenda can attest to this. She adores Brenda. So my dog story is: love me, love my dog. We've always had dogs of some sort and all were special. I like cats too but never had any except outside (husband is very allergic). Can't have them anymore because the coyotes come and get them. There's nothing so chilling as hearing the yipping right outside your house and then the silence. Hate it. I have a gun and have shot it a few times. I'll never hit anything except one of the grain trucks! But I can put a tiny bit of fear in them
I think I told you, I've turned off the 24 hr news of gloom and doom. I did have to tune in briefly when the governor showed everyone just how delusional he is. Illinois has a major machine in place and is so corrupt. Maybe the time has come for the people to say enough.
Brenda and I are trying to loose a few pounds. Boy I enjoy eating my way through everything and then I see the results. Not a pretty sight. Think I might have hit one of my all-time highs this yr. Not sure because I've been yoyoing for so long. I know it's not healthy but as I'm (gulp) 60.shhh don't tell anyone..I doubt if I change too much. My goal is at least 30 lbs. and stay there...uh huh. Maybe 25! Or 20. We'll see.
Take care all and for anyone in the states with no electricity, I hope you are soon back to normal. Stay warm. We have a corn stove (gee..that sounds like Ma & Pa Kettle) and if you don't know who that is, well, you're too young or I'm still old. But Sophie and I go to the sunroom and watch t.v. or read (I do..Sophie doesn't read yet)and keep warm. All for now before I wander off in something more ridiculous than I allready have.
I just got a face book web page, it is cool. I think we should all get one.
Parker is home sick from school.His mother is here..
I wonder if Becca and Rob are going to get back together. I am staying out of Rob's love life but I still worry after about $20,000 and pain and lies from her, is she to be back in his life???? I will accept it, I won't like it but what ever is best for the kids and Rob. Maybe this is the anwser to my prayers. Just don't know.
Take care. Love ya, Brenda
I lost 2.6 pounds this week.Hope all is well with you, I miss you when you don't post. But I know we alll have busy lives. Later.Brenda
