Michele- you are such a great mom.

Caterina- enjoy your visit and travel safely.

Debbie- That was quite an ordeal. Sure hope things are better!

I had a great birthday! I did the laundry, mopped, vacuumed, mowed the lawn, and went to dinner with my 2 favorite sisters. I ate too much. But it was fun! I bought some new jeans the other day. I was surprised that I went from a 24 to an 18. I have just been taking in all my clothes. They are not even pull-ons. they have a zipper! I know how hard it is to lose weight. It has taken me 19 months to get this far. I guess I have at least that much more time to get where I want. However, the last few days with celebrating I have gained a few pounds. Why can I gain a few pounds in a couple of days that take me a month to lose?

I'm back from a long weekend of library training workshops. The drive home tonight seemed lik 10 hours instead of 5. My brain is on overload. Learned a lot of helpful stuff. It's going to take a few days to go through my notes and organize them. Now that I had some down time I should be able to sleep.

Joan, not to worry about the few pounds you gained, sometimes it can be fluid. You are doing really well so just keep up the good work!

It is a very rainy day here in the Berkshires.

Debbie- Training is always draining for me. Get some rest and then it will be easier to organize.

Caterina- thanks for your kind words.

Anyone notice my new avatar. It is my staff ID. I think it is the best picture I have ever had taken!

I did notice your new avatar. Looking good. And Happy Belated Birthday. I really had intended on sending everyone a birthday card, but life just got in the way. I didn't even make DH an anniversary card.

Well we just had some excitement at our home! Looked up from my laptop and saw a police car in front of our house with lights going, a second one came almost immediately followed by several more... Looked out the window and saw a damaged car sitting in our driveway sideways... ooops... the officer told me that they were chasing these two women who were driving a stolen car, stolen plates & expired license. The young women did not seem concerned at all and were disappointed that by pulling into our driveway, it did not help them get away from the police.

You don't always have to leave home for entertainment. I bet those women are feeling pretty stupid right now. You're really going to hide in someone's driveway with a stolen car and the police seeing you pull in there? Glad it wasn't anything life threatening to you, Cat.

Thanks, sweetie, the police did take one of the women away in handcuffs so reality is probably setting in for her.

HI Ladies, I know I have been so absent from most things. Life at home is very stressful and a day when I can find peace is rare. This weekend was all explosions and DD informed me I was "selfish" I am so at witts end and hoping for the next bit to go quickly I am finding myself caring about less and less.

Hugs,
Michele

I have been away from this thread too. I am sorry ladies.

Michele - feeling for you. Being a parent is hard work. These kiddos just don't get it. They really don't. I just hope someday they recognize all their parents do for them. Hugs to you dear friend.

Debbie, Joan, Cat - love all you ladies.

Ahhh, it’s so nice to be able to vent and get some love thank you! I shut down this weekend and crawled into bed and I don’t know the amazingly high amount of hours that I slept. I don’t even really want to talk to her today isn’t that awful. So unlike me, and so don’t know what to do.

Michele - I had a bad couple of days last week, too. Just felt like crying. And I did. I slept, too. But I had a headache and that was part of it. Feel better, you are a wonderful mom. God chose you for your daughter.

Thank you Joan! I felt so defeated this weekend and to know me, I don't get like that much. I am glad it's been better for the last couple of days there is always something bothering her and I just shut down. It's been such a rough road and to know me I don't shut down like that much and I am strong willed I guess that's why it bothered me more. Oh teens are not easy especially girls!

Hello friends, there must be something in the air to pull everyone down. Hey, all of you are free to come over for an old-fashioned 'sleepover'.

Cat, the sleepover sounds like fun. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could do it?
Hope everything gets much better for all of my friends. I'm praying for all of you.

Caterina- Too bad we live so far away from each other. It does sound like fun!

I am off work until Monday. However, I have dr appointments, and other commitments. Dh and I are both off so we will be spending the time doing errands and visiting our youngest son who lives 2 1/2 hrs south of us.

I went to the GP and podiatrist yesterday. The scale was my friend. It read 50 pounds less than March 2011. My BP was 112/60. When I am at work it is 138/90 or higher. Can I say stress! The dr was happy but did remind me that I have a long way to go. The blood work came back normal! The podiatrist gave me a cortisone shot in my heel. WOW I sure forgot that pain. I need to go back in a month for a recheck. Hopefully, this helps.

Keep up the good work, Joan! Have you ever tried acupuncture? It really does help not only with stress but will pain as well.

50 pounds!! Way to go, Joan!!!

Fall weather didn't last too long in some areas of the state. Mountains got snow. I don't think anyone is complaining. It helps a whole lot with the fires. Temps were in the mid 40s today. We had some rain, then snow for a couple minutes, then a little rain. Work has been quiet this week so I'm getting a lot of things caught up there.

I'm dog sitting for my boss while she's out of town yesterday and today. She'll be home sometime tonight. Daisy is a little Yorkie. Boy, does she look tiny against Timber. He likes following her around. Lexi's not so sure she likes her. I kept Daisy here overnight and she spent part of the night in my bed and the other part in her little bed I brought from her home. Lexi didn't like sharing the bed with her.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend.

Caterina- I have tried acupuncture a few years ago for my back. I was impressed.

I know that stress is causing much of my back pain and BP issues. I try to relax as much as I can!

Christine crosses my mind often and can only trust the Lord that she is doing okay.

I just drove about 15miles from the town where Christine lives on Thursday when I visited my son. I wish I knew if I could just drop in and see her. I think about her often too!

Hello my friends!

I think about Christine often as well. She was the one who started this whole group, right? I think when facebook became popular SCS lost a lot of people over there. I notice it in other threads as well. I like facebook, but there is more of a community here.

It is chilly in PA today! I'm not complaining, but would like it to be a brighter day. No sunshine. It is only in the 50s. I hope all my dear friends are having a nice Sunday. I cannot believe it is the 7th of October already!

Good morning ladies from chilly NJ - but I love Chilly! I had a good weekend it was a good 4 day one and back to work today! Hoping that it goes well I got a really good review last week for last year and was so happy with that.

Did a shoebox swap this past weekend there was 14 of us so that was a nice number I had bought to spots I thought a friend was going to come she said she had to work and so DD came with me and we had a pretty good day and then went food shopping afterwards, got her the stuff she likes and she made a rice mix, did small red potatoes and cut them, sauteed onions and pepper. DH came home yesterday and ate her food, thankfully he went back to the store to get more of the rice. But she has his knack with food! She was happy with what she accomplished.

Hoppe everyone has a great day!

I received some bad news today. One of my SIL's died. She was the wife of my brother that the family has a golf tournament in his honor. I am sad for their children and grandchildren. To lose both of your parents in a few yrs from cancer.

Michele- Thanks...
Please pray for my great nephew. he is stationed in Afghanistan. So far the family has not been able to contact him to tell him that his grandma died. I know that the military is working on notification.
