Ohhhhhhh, Lindsay,

How terrible of all those bad things! I can't even imagine.  So, it sounds like you had your rib diagnosed as dislocated.

That flu.....bad stuff. I think I heard that there was a round one and then a round two.  I am so thankful that we have avoided it so far. Praying that it doesn't find us.

I'll pray for you guys and hopefully March will bring sunshine, joy, and healing to everyone!

Hi Alice.
Hope your chicken and salad satisfies!

It is already almost 3:00.  I am kind of off my day today.

Went to weight watchers, walked 4 miles, and then grabbed a quick lunch with my friend.  We have missed walking the past 2 weeks, so it was good to get that in.  And, I finally got back to the weight I need to be at to got to meetings for free!  It has been such a struggle for the past 3 months.  Glad to be back to free.  Now I have to make sure I don't go off the rails between now and the time we go to Florida!  I am free for February.  So, that is like one more week.  ::)  So, I will hold on, and then weigh in on the first Sunday or Monday in March to stay at the free status. 

Made an appointment for a physical.  The dr's office called me and said I was due, so I scheduled it.  I have not been to the dr in 2 years, so I guess it is time for a quick check up.  Not my favorite thing to do.  Have to go have labs done the week prior, so will have to figure that out scheduling wise.  Will be a fasting test, so need to plan that out ahead. 

I also have jury duty the week I need to do the labs, so that will play into when I can go. 

I agree Alice.  February stinks!  It's what I call the "ugly" season in MI.  Bare trees, muddy ground, any snow that is left around is filthy.  It's just gross.  And the sun rarely shines.  I will be glad to head south in 2 weeks.  Hoping the sun is shining down there!
I realized today, that we went out to the show on Valentine's Day, and I had not left my house again until this morning.  Wow, that kind of sums up February in a nutshell!  I didn't need to go anywhere, so why would I??

Hope everyone else is enjoying a little sunshine!  I am desperate for it!!   ;)
Fill us in on your happenings!

Happy Wednesday,

Wow! What a difference a day makes! We're 20 degrees colder today than yesterday. And breezy! Quite chilly out there.

Absolutely nothing going on in my world. But that is February--it's winter and cold and we really can't do anything and the sad thing is we're not done with winter yet.

We're just plain old BLAH right now. Meals are boring, life is boring but when spring comes around, we'll all be much happier!

Chicken in the crockpot tonight with a batch of homemade seasoning that I found online. I hope it tastes good in the crockpot. I might have to put it under the broiler for a bit when I get home. Probably a salad to go with it though it will be a bare bones salad since I only have carrots, celery and hard boiled eggs. I would love some tomatoes or cucumbers but sadly that grocery run won't happen. We'll be good with what we have.

Good Morning Alice and any others who stop by.

60 degrees sounds so great, doesn't it?  Too back it is so rainy and gloomy outside.  At least the snow is gone.  We have that going for us anyway.

Hope your car didn't get damaged when you hit that pothole.  They are so bad this time of year, aren't they? 

My weekend plans have changed -- again!  Now, not meeting up with hubby on Friday to go to Indiana.  They are expecting rain over the weekend, so instead of a Friday/Saturday series, it will be a Thursday/Saturday series of games.  We will just head down early Saturday morning.  No hotel expense for us, so that is a positive.   Will try to watch the game on line Thursday.  Hoping it goes better this weekend than last!

Tomorrow I have my normal schedule.  Weight Watchers, walking with my friend, and then lunch. 
Hubs still out of town, so will just keep eating on the bean soup I made for dinner last night. 

I made some caramel chocolate chip muffins this morning.  They are really quite good.  Had some overripe bananas that I needed to use up, so that was a good way to do that. 

Dishwasher is done.  Put some things away upstairs that have been annoying me (finally enough to do something about it!)  ;)

Need to go to our room and sort through some clothes.  We have way too many, and I need to get rid of some of them.  Now is a good time to do that.  Gotta run the car payment out to the mailbox, so I had better get off of here and do that before the mail comes.  Our DisneyWorld magic bands are scheduled to arrive today, so I will watch for those.

Talk to you all later!
Have a great day!!

Good Morning,

It is a wet and flooding type of morning. We have had so much rain that there is a lot of flooded streets and a lot of very large potholes that seemed to have gotten bigger overnight. Lots of damage to cars. I hit one yesterday.

It is also very warm and I didn't sleep last night very much. Not sure if I should turn the furnace completely off or just have the fan blowing. I chose the fan blowing which really circulated the air and it felt really good. Should I throw open the windows? Not sure. It is about 60 degrees.

We had a hodgepodge of food last night. I was planning on a turkey roast with roasted potatoes and corn but hubby started a pot of spaghetti. My stomach can't handle tomato products two nights in a row so I couldn't have the spaghetti last night. As a result, we have two options of leftovers for tonight's supper. A win/win situation.

Nothing else going on today for me.

The Imaginary Invalid. It's a small production but I like to support my local businesses.

Orphan Train is coming up and so is Copenhagen. I might try to go to those as well as they sound interesting.

Sounds like a nice weekend Alice!

What was the name of the play you went to?
My niece was in a show this weekend.  Wondered if it was that one.

Have a great day.  Hope you get through your meetings ok.

Good Morning, Pam and all who follow!

I had a long 4 day weekend of doing pretty much nothing. I just needed the time to rest and be home doing nothing. We did get a few necessary groceries and then I visited my parents which ended up in a visit to Meijer since Mom wanted some photos printed of her new grandson. I helped her with that and they wanted all the pictures put on their computer. They just want them on a folder on the desktop page so they can click on it and view the photos.

I also made a few meals for ourselves and froze the rest for our son to have a choice for his weekends away. Right now there are 5 frozen meals ready to grab and go. Tonight I will have to cook something but I'm not sure what. We had tacos, chicken crescent casserole, pork stir fry with peppers and onions, oxtail soup and there no leftovers from all of that. I have some red potatoes I want to do in the oven and I'll need something to go with it.

We have a little theater in town that does plays with amateur actors but they are really quite good. So we went to a Sat. matinee of a cute little play. It was an afternoon of laughs. Then we visited MIL for a light supper of sub sandwiches and watched Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. She is widowed so doing this with her is nice for her.

Then our two youngest kids came home last night and they enjoyed meeting up with each other since it has been about 6 weeks since they've seen each other. Son came home from his weekend work and daughter home for a dentist appt. this morning so I saw her for about 2 hours. They were actually excited to see each other!

I have meetings all afternoon and that will be very tiring. The rest of the day should be pretty good.

Hello to any of you who might pop in today.

Nothing major in my world.  Deep cleaning living/dining room area.  It's not too bad, but there are some cluttered areas that need to be dealt with.

Hubs left this morning for the up north leg of his work project.  I will meet up with him on Friday to head to Indiana for son's baseball games.
Speaking of, they didn't do well this weekend.  We watched via streaming on the internet, and it was not good.  The first game they got no-hit.  The 2nd game, they were up, and then lost toward the end by 1 run.  The 3rd game, it was back and forth, and then they lost kind of big.  Hopefully they will have time to regroup by games Friday and Saturday.   :P

I am doing some menu planning today.  Will probably throw some beans in the crockpot for a bean soup.  Will do that right away since it's better the longer it cooks.  I can eat on that all week.  I don't mind eating the same thing over & over most of the time.  Especially since it's just me.

Hope everyone had a great weekend.  Was pretty slow for us.  Felt good.
Would love to hear what you are all up to.
