    Lynn - I never had Boston's until being with current SO... he's always had them, growing up. They are such great dogs. They have their very own, unique personalities. We have 2, right now. With 2 completely different personalities. They are both Seniors...12- 13 and 9- 10 (rescues, so not positive on age) our girl, Domino, is very chill, very affectionate... Max, is full on crazy....haha... he has to have a toy or sock at all times, and just whines with it.. he's "special"

    Kathryn - glad you are able to enjoy your garden. Makes the day a little better :)

    Half way through day and to do list.

    Found my "balls" and got the courage to pick up my glasses (involves driving on one of the most stressful roads in town). The glasses are a medium blue (last pair was so dark they almost looked black).

    Went to work to have lunch never did meet up with coworker tomorrow is another day. Third coworker wants to talk to me about the hearts I crochet - she probably wants me to make her a whole bunch. I will offer to show her how to make them, I have 3 projects going right now.....

    Nap with any luck and then toe nail time. BBL

    ** Lana leave me some room on that couch we have major gossip to catch up on.

    2700 steps to go imagine me walking the parking lot after dinner.

    New dental gum treatment makes me sit there for 20 minutes twice a day - all for good gums.

    I am tempted to ask my Sup tomorrow if I can work easy stuff until she leaves......

    will be back with total steps.

    10000 steps had to walk around small place to get last steps with dog's head cocked to one side wondering why I was walking in circles.

    Wishing all a good night

    Good morning!

    I'm up and headed to boot camp challenge. I'll weigh after I sweat off some of the fluid in my legs.

    Wishing everyone a happy Thursday. Send me willpower vibes please. I'm catering a meal tonight that I love but can't eat. I have a plan. I will stick to it!

    splurged a little last night on a sandwich while out shopping for new flooring. i was just barely over calories but since we went shopping, i did not get my run/walk in. kinda miss it when i dont do it. i am thinking that is a good thing and should keep me in the habit!

    was surprised DH and i found a floor we both like within our budget. its a medium shade but hope it doesnt make house too dark. all of our floors are really light. didnt realize how light until we put the new floor samples on it. havent found anything as light that we like as well.

    now to figure out what all we have to do to prep for the new flooring and what to do first. we will be running new electric to an island in kitchen. house is on a slab. that means cutting trench in concrete to put in conduit and wiring. not looking forward to that! or having house ripped to shreds as we get all of it done. it will mean that kitchen will be out of order for awhile and eating out may be a necessity. :(

    OK - which one of you Cabana Club Girls is going to come to Grouchy Lana's house and help her pick out new flooring for the kitchen and bathrooms?

    I need some really classy-*kitten* sheet flooring for the kitchen - unless you tell me it doesn't HAVE to be sheet flooring - because I have a pool in the back yard, and one half of the year people come in from the back yard and drip in the kitchen on their way to the nearest bathroom, which also needs nice-looking sheet vinyl or something nice looking.

    Whoever chose the linoleum for this house before we bought it was decor-deprived (I think that they were brilliant UNC-Chapel Hill research scientists) and DH and I had our rose-colored Swimming Pool Glasses on, because we wanted an in-ground pool, and this house had it.

    I always tell people: I bought a piece of property in Chapel Hill that has a beautiful swimming pool on it. And Oh, it also happens to have a Money Pit 50's Yick House on the property as well.

    To be continued........

    Steps total 7871 waited too long to go outside walking - actually talking with someone too long.

    Tomorrow is another day.

    Lana - sometimes cheap is cheap so see if Kathryn has any ideas or hints.

    Wishing all a good night.

    I left today before having any of the dessert fest at work - I did eat a milky way bar with a cup of coffee and did NOT purchase Larry/Lenny's snickerdoodle cookie at the place I took my car - so okay I didnt get 10000 but I also keep hundreds of calories off my thighs.

    Lana - it doesnt have to be sheet flooring. DH and I are looking at a vinyl plank flooring that is waterproof and it can look like hardwood, even feels like hardwood, or there is some that looks like tile.

    brenner - the flooring we picked out is what the store called luxury vinyl plank flooring (LVP). The color is called Tobacco Acacia and has a lot of colors/variations in it. there is a lot of we really like it because it has varying widths and lengths plus what i said above - it even has the texture of a handscraped hardwood.

    now, somehow, we have decided on installing a faux electric fireplace (and put windows on either side of it) in the living room. now is research and making the decision to either get a pre-made mantle & firebox or build our own. anyone have any ideas/experience/tips/tricks for that??

    rainy dismal day and I was exhausted and feeling crappy (TOM) so I didn't do my usual workout. instead came home to rest. eh, stayed within calories, at least.
