Hi Rebecca!

A few us met on one of our swaps and it just ballooned from there! We usually get together once a month for dessert/coffee/appetizers or something along those lines.

We're a pretty crazy bunch (sometimes) and are really supportive of each other, so if you think you'd like to join us, jump right in!!!

We're getting together next on Jan. 25th (evening), but I don't think we've 100% decided on a place yet.

Oh...and a bunch of us have embarked on a healthier lifestyle journey. You can join us in that too if you like!

Welcome!

Diet Resolutions You Can Keep
Trying to jump start your diet? Here are a few tips to get you started. Plan to drink more water. Drink a glass of water when you first wake up, and resolve to drink more water each day until you reach your healthy, recommended amount. Be sure to start your diet slowly. Taking small steps at first can help making a change in your diet easier. Resolve to get more fiber in your diet by adding fresh fruits or vegetables to your meals. Mind your munching by paying attention to the food that you eat and be careful not to nibble all day. Chew a piece of sugar-free gum or brush and floss your teeth to avoid mindless snacking.
There good advice here...I usually chew gum anyway but getting more fiber is a good one...I just started taking fibre sure in my morning coffee..and in my tea....it's tastelss and melts away invisiblely....

Michelle, just google Body Mass Index and you'll find somewhere where you plug in height and weight...it will calculate it for you.

Hi Rebecca! Christyne pretty much summed that one up! Welcome to our little corner of Splitcoast!

C - we have the Wii Fit. bfs dd wants the Wii Fit plus, so we'll probably buy that for her for her birthday in April. I might get a couple other fitness-ssy games too. BF's bday is in april aswell. i already bought his gift, 4 DVD sets (we have the first one already) of the Wire. So now he has the complete season.

I did some laundry, wrapped 1lb of homemade wontons, did some groceries, did a two page layout that NEEDS some embellishement but I'm not sure what yet... and now I'm staring at them.. lol

Its coooold tonight and i have some more cleaning to do... I wanted to check out some websites and see if I can find some stuff to put on my pages. I'm re-doing an album from 2004. I have an "interview" with a head hunter tomorrow so i think I shoud clear my space and my head tonight!

Hi Karen! Sounds like you've been busy!

I think there are some EA Active games that work with the Wii. DH has looked around and said they come highly recommended...a friend of mine uses them too and he says they're great.

Do you have a recipe to share for the wontons? My parents used to make them a LONG time ago and I'd live to try it out! Egg rolls too...if you happen to have a recipe for that!

they're totally easy. I make mine with ground pork and watercress.
Its hard to describe how to fold them though.. I need to show you or draw it out.. lol

If you want to make regular wontons, you just add shrimp, and take out the watercress.

I wanted to try making chicken and chives ones but haven't tried that yet. Maybe I'll try making them and take pics so I can show you how to fold it.

woohoo on the wontons Karen. Do you freeze them? I made a batch of spring rolls once and froze them but it didn't work too well since when I defrosted them they all stuck together and turned into mush. My mom said the trick is to seperate them when they're still frozen so that they won't stick but I've yet to try that. I've also heard that if you precook them before freezing they won't stick together either. My kids and DH love wontons and spring rolls so maybe I'll get myself to make some soon. They're just so much work!

they're not that much work at all! Time consuming but not that much work. Well, at least the wontons - i've never made spring rolls. The trick is to spread them out on a platter and put them into the freezer. Takes about 5 -10 minutes for the wontons to freeze up. Then you pop them into a ziploc bag and they'll stay unstuck. I'm sure the same thing will work for the spring rolls. They might take a bit longer to freeze up though. And don't defrost the wontons, just put them right into the boiling water with a spot of oil and stir them occassionally and they wont stick.

We could get together and make a bunch at some point if you wanna do 'em up.
They're great for something quick to take out of the freezer for lunch on the weekends. BF loves them. I was making them for a while and they didn't taste right. Then my mom came for a visit and told me i was missing the chinese five spice... lol makes all the difference!!

WOOHOO!!! Wonton making party at Diana's! She does have a pretty big kitchen after all.

Hey! Maybe that's what we could do in February. Have a whole weekend sleepover and do up something like one of those supper club things...and do some crafting too! Ooh...I am a clever one!

OMG!!! I can't believe I just missed this whole conversation! I managed to catch the last half (I didn't realize that it started at 8 )...will have to rewatch it ROD tomorrow! Which one's the nutso? The one that he gave the rose to last???

Karen I don't know about you but the whole landing strip comment made me so embarrassed to be asian. I know she's Cambodian but still.....ahhhh!!!! really???

Party at my place in February sounds GREAT!!! We could stuff wontons and spring rolls, then as they're freezing we can craft!!! Christyne and Karen you guys are GENIUSES!!!!!

BTW...are we gonna do the superbowl party so the hubbies can meet?? I googled it and it's supposed to be on Sunday, February 7th. I think Teresa declared me the winner!

LOL Yeh, she kinda unfortunately proved a sterotype about cambodian women and thai women.. lol of course, its not true for all - but that's the stereotype, right?! the only thing she was missing was the blonde streaks in her hair.. hahaha

I'll ask if bf is interested in the superbowl party... I know I am!!

Good for you Karen! Hopefully things line up for you soon.

I had to go back and fix my other post...I was wondering why there was a smiley face when I didn't put one on then I realized that if you type an 8 on the left side of a close bracket it automatically becomes lol...

Keep me posted about the superbowl party ladies and when you want to do the wonton stuffing....

oh and I guess we should decide on a place for the 25th...i'm good with Jack's if everyone else is. Doesn't really matter where we go....

I'm sitting at home alone...........crying. My son and grandsons left at 11 p.m. yesterday. Man, do I miss them! The three boys all wanted to move to Canada, but my son already had his fill of snow and cold and was glad to go back to warmer weather!
Gotta get off the computer and work on Paola's swap that is due next week!

(((HUGS))) Ina. You'll see them again soon!

I'm going to have to be out of the Super Bowl. We always do a family thing that night. We have the kids convinced, quite literally, that it is against the law to eat anything but chicken wings on Super Bowl Sunday - HYSTERICAL!

Jack's works for me too!

Bob doesn't want to go to super bowl...bunch of guys he doesn't know and he can't see what's going on and he usually has a gig that night anyway.

Hugs Ina!! It must be hard trying to get used to a quiet house again, if you want the company of little ones to distract you, you are more than welcome to come up and hang out with my crew. lol...they'll make you appreciate your quiet home again!

Ok...so I guess a Super Bowl party is out...lol, but didn't you ladies come up with that idea way back when??? I guess we'll just have to come up with another way for the hubbies to meet, or we can just keep it girls!

If everyone is ok with Jack's then Jack's it is...what time did you want to meet? and who's coming? I need to get started on my tins for Teresa's swap and my prezzies.

Hi Karen,

Glad to hear the interview with the headhunter went well. I'm looking for work also. What sort of job are you looking for?

I'm an accountant. I was laid off last May after working at a company for 13 years, found contract work for two months, but that's it. Many people are hopeful that this year will be much better. I suppose I am too.

I'm sick of meeting with headhunters. I've met with about 20 of them now. Sorry, it's just a little depressing.

holy moly. that's alot!
I've only met with one, and I'm only going to work with one.

Did they send you to career counselling? Seems they are the only ones making money now. Mine did and it was helpful. got my resume all revamped and did some interview skills, different ways of saying the same thing. I like my new resume so much more than my old one, and it wasn't alot changed - it just flows much better.

I hope this year will be better too. alot of shuffling around for sure. i'm confident I'll find something. I just don't know how long it will take and I'm worried I'll get stuck with something I dont like.

I'm looking at the calories for food at Jack Astor's and think we would be wise to choose another restaurant.
