    Birdie - beautiful dog! I am also from WI. and have a chocolate lab. So we are in the same boat (:
    Sara - under 10 pounds - lol. My baby weighed 73.1 - fatty (: not really they actually said she was in great shape!
    Marsellove - that sounds very fun! Finding what you love in life and enjoying - that is very important!

    @RunaMarti I think it's called LARPing. I have a friend in salt lake that got roped into the local group up there. She thinks it's super dorky and I'm like girl you run a dungeons and dragons game every week! Those who live in glass houses...

    I think we all have a tiny bit of geek in us all! ;) D&D was my game in college. I took my friend to SuperCon and to a William Shatner movie screening/conversation event. (see a theme here? :D ) She was in geek-heaven! I have to say the SuperCon was much more fun than I had anticipated. The fact we got a meet-n-greet & photo with William Shatner and Henry Winkler made it unforgettable! Several friends attend Renaissance Fairs and, some day, I would like to tag along with them. A friend's son is VERY involved in a regional LARP group. I see photos of him in all his different costumes and now he even does leatherwork and creates costumes for other members.

    Picture of my English setter, Jack. Snowy winter land in Wisconsin. We got our walk in this AM.
    He is super active and does not like cold weather. We both are dreaming of sunshine and grass B).

    To the Geeks here, I've never been to a costume sci fi event, but sounds fun. Always have fun dressing for Halloween parties. I do hope you will post picture of your costume.

    Oh by the way, the chicken taco soup is amazing. Looking forward to another bowl.

    Happy day to all.
    Birdie

    Jack is so cute! Thanks for the pic!

    brennerjlb - what part of the state are you from? We are expecting 6 to 9 inches of snow tomorrow!

    8089 total steps

    Last walk tonight an adult black cat came running at my dog and I shooed it away and it tried again - I may need to get a "squirt gun" of sorts - but dog lunged at it and growled so the cat went away. I dont want to be bothered by this, but my "kitten" neighbor leaves food out for the cats. We shall see what we shall see.

    Herb tea and then lights out.

    Wishing all a good night.

    @stuba - Jack is awesome! And look at that snow!! So pretty, but you can keep it up there thank you very much -Ha!
    @marsellilove - Ok, I am going to have to get a picture of my friend's wedding ring and post for you. He and his wife are both HUGE Lord of the Rings fans, and a friend hand made them rings with the Arwen/Aragorn "I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone" in "elvish". This guy is a craftsman and the rings are stunning.

    BUSY day - Just made it in and I am going to hit the exercise bike tonight. Pouring down rain but at least it is warm.

    TUESDAY

    Good morning,

    Love the dog pictures. Marsel that is an awesome costume.

    Cloudy today and rain through Sunday so I appreciated the last of the sun for awhile.

    Lana time for you to check in and peep. Hope your trip went well.

    Handed out heart shaped lollipops - gave one to each of the security guards who greet me in the morning. Someone gets the security guards doughnuts on Friday which I think is nice. Hard job and invisible to many.

    Earworm to share 1970's Heatwave "Groove line" one of my favorite songs of that era - hard to stay seated - google and enjoy

    So grab your friends, get the train comin' through
    Climb on board where you leave's up to you
    Leave you worries behind
    'Cause rain, shine, don't mind
    We're ridin' on the groove line tonight

    Wave to all who follow.

    OMG I love the Hobbit Costume. You are adorable!

    Hi!
    Buffy - welcome! Great group!
    Birdie - NE Wisconsin and yes we are getting snow again. Made it to work in my sons 4 wheel drive truck. Felt like a bad "butt" in it! He is 19 and a red neck - so you can imagine. lol Congrats on the loss. I am striving to get below that 190 mark. been awhile. Keep bouncing around above it :neutral:
    Sara - squirt gun indeed!
    Lana - congrats on loss!
    Marsel - great job on costume!
    Kathryn - lol that was a very important post 3 times :wink:

    Hi all!!

    We finally had some sun today :smiley: Of course, I was most happy that I didn't gorge on food in order subdue my emotions.

    Building owners are not renewing their contract with the organization that subsidizes my rent. So, I found a notice on my door informing me I have to move by Fall. Its just hard to find a lot of places for my program and I have a billion questions. Have a plan to meet with someone at the nonprofit tomorrow to start talking about options.

    I got the note as I was running to my doctor's office. Apparently the fibroids are the cause of the extra pain and more bleeding. And it will just get worse. Any hopes of having a kid late in life just got dashed. The only real effective treatment is to have a hysterectomy. And I know that there are lots of ways to have kids, but I have always wanted to have several of my own. It's the only goal in life that meant more than most and never happened. I used to say "yet", but now I will have to mourn the loss of that dream.

    And on no notice, I lost 50 percent of my very small IRL support system a few days ago. This week is exceptionally hard because of anniversaries that are getting harder as time goes on.

    But... instead of drowning my sorrows in food, like I really REALLY want to, I made a choice to have a smaller cheat snack and am planning on having a fairly decent dinner. Hopefully I can bounce back from this devastation faster than I did when life got pulled out from under me in July.

    I just want a break. I wish I could stay away from food altogether and not have to deal with the temptation in times like this.

    Another day of sun would be the absolute best!!

    Stay warm all :smile:
