    Chris thanks

    I hope tomorrow is even better for you. I am feeling about like you

    Our work had a Christmas dinner tonight. Our Sgt. paid for everything. Plus handed out gifts. I got some chocolate wine drink and a $100 bill. But the biggest surprise was our friend from out of state was here. So much fun. And an adorable little girl Melanie thought I was the best ever. Her parents are from Cuba. So have no family here. I am her stand in grandma. Love it

    I think tomorrow I will try to work out some

    A little better today. I will be doing the same thing I did yesterday...nothing!! I'll be seeing my trainer tomorrow if she lets me into her workout area... :#
    Shelley, that sounds like so much fun! Melanie sounds so sweet!! Does the family live near you? How many were at the dinner?
    Well, have a great Sunday, my friends.

    Chris they live about 15 minutes away. I work with him. I think there were around 25 there last night. I was busy playing grandma. I am still very slowly recovering. Yuch.

    I was wore out doing aquarium cleaning today. So only walked a little. Then I ruined any chance of dropping weight by eating chocolate. Stupid!

    Shelley, I'm not a fan of chocolate, but I did order lemon, blueberry loaf yesterday and had a delightful time with it!!! yumm!
    My cold is still here...cough and runny nose which hurts like the dickens!!! I am going to my trainer today. We'll see how that goes. The stuff the doc gave me is helping a bit. Hope this ends soon. Pat still has it, too.

    I’m feeling better but mom is now sneezing and coughing. She had her MRI today and I’m hoping she gets the same great news she got with the last CT.

    Glad you’re both feeling better. Shelley the dinner sounds like it was fun. I believe you love being everybody’s grandma while I’m everyone’s Auntie. 😄

    I really need to start working out. Take care ladies.

    Kathy, sending your mom and you good thoughts and lots of love.
    Feeling better but still got it. ugh!
    The kids should be coming home from Disneyland today. Bean will be very happy!!
    I saw my trainer for a half hour yesterday. She didn't want me to over do it. Tomorrow's workout should be and hour.
    Our housekeeper is coming today. I cleaned up around here for her! :D

    Chris my daughter has something like us. Been hanging on for almost 2 months. So tired of this also.

    Kathy you are so right. You are the favorite auntie to my favorite grandma.

    Wishing us all good health.

    And let's lift some weights ladies.

    Planks are important as we age. Do at least 30 seconds in the morning and evening and then 10 pushups any way you can do them. We can do this my friends.

    Fish coming tomorrow. Rockys surgery is Thursday. I will do the above mini workout. Without complaint or fail.

    Shelley, I do planks w/my trainer three times a week...one minute each...and standing pushups using the TRX...3X10.
    We are getting Collin this morning. Should be interesting after a week and a half not seeing him. We'll get Ronan this afternoon. I plan to go with Pat when he takes him home so I can see Sara and give her some stuff for the baby.

    Kathy we can complain a little. :* we have to be there a little before 0800 tomorrow. Not bad at all. Hope your planks went well. My push ups were good.

    Chris you can add some extra planking with us. How did it go with the boys? Did Ronan tell you all about his trip?

    Fish arrived alive.. Couple did not look great though. Will see how they are in the morning. These fish are a bit sensitive to shipping. Wish I lived closer to a fish store. At least I could let them settle before moving them again.

    Hi'all,

    I'm still here but my internet went out again.

    Sorry everyone got sick. Hope you're all feeling better soon. A lot of folks here are skipping our monthly potluck this week because there are so many bugs going around. I'm wavering but will probably mask up and make a very brief appearance.

    I haven't weighed lately - am afraid it will not be merry.

    I completed 2 sets of 30 sec planks followed by 2 sets of 10 pushups…one set morning and one set evening. It’s a start.

    Collin loved Disney, Ronan had a blast.
    I'm getting better. My voice is not so 'manly' today.
    Saw my trainer yesterday for 60 mins. A min plank...no pushups.
    Collin is here now. He's playing w/Grandpa.
    The fog is so thick this morning that I can't see across the street!! Egads, man!! And it's 39 degrees!!! I miss summer!!!

    Paula I miss your witty sense of humor. I love potlucks. Always so much more to do with friends than eating.

    Kathy you can and will do it. I am inspired by all that you do.

    Chris my voice is better today also. I am betting you do bench presses. Yes? They count as push ups. Yes yes yes they do.

    Rocky is in recovery. Doctor said his knee was really bad and it took longer than normal because of that. Total replacement. I can't take him home tonight. It will be tomorrow. Eating alone really sucks.

    Kathy I did my pushups this morning. But no plank!

    Shelley, no bench presses for me!!! I had to look it up because I had no idea what it was!! NOPEY, NOPE!!!!
    Hope Rocky is doing well and home now. I really don't like when everyone leaves and I am the only one here....sucks.
    Funny story...when the kids were little and I wrote stories at night when everyone was asleep, I used to think...If no one was here, I would get a whole lot more writing done...dun...dun...dun... When Pat would take them to the playground, I couldn't write at all...kept making excuses about what I needed to do or just sat in my computer chair. Made me crazy!!

    We buy cute bears from Raley's at Christmas. Part of the $$ goes to Feed Families. We give the bears away. The family across the street has 7 kids...7 bears went there this afternoon. I will give the rest away to the kids coming home from the Elementary School at the end of the block this coming week. It makes the kids smile and it makes me happy.

    Kathy great workout. Don’t stop

    Chris I love the bear story. And sorry I have been absent. Rocky is home. Sleeping in a recliner. Lots of pain but that’s to be expected. I am still coughing also. Sorry your trainer is sick now also. Just sucks.

    I am not a cook. Nopey nope. I will have to buy eggs tomorrow. Rocky loves eggs for breakfast.

    Throat is sore. Might have to see the doctor soon if something doesn’t change
