Good morning all

Everything is going well routine is on track.

Not much on the agenda for today.  A little bit of sun and will probably do my patio door windows since I have some little paw prints from my little visitors... lol

Will add later if anything majorly interested happens today.  A relax day again.

Wishing you all a great day.

enjoy your day and last few weeks down South :) what made you want to vacation in the states in the southeast vs. another option of southwest?

puddles on 03/14/2016:
I drive and this is nice and close 17 hrs. I love Myrtle Beach feels like home to me after all the years I have been coming here. I was in Florida from 1988 to 2005 and after I sold and decided to try some other place. Found Myrtle Beach small town, great people.

OhioRaven on 03/14/2016:
What part of Fla ? I know you probably told me but I forgot.

Sigh - routine. Calm. Sounds good.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/15/2016:
Yes, I've def heard of Myrtle Beach :)

I think you and HP should meet for coffee on your way up North.

Good morning

Well my kids have gone and all is good at this end.  It was a very active time so I do not think much harm was done to the scale but will wait for a few days of a strict routine before I get back on the scale.  Everything seems to fit the same so probably one or two pounds would be the most it could possibly and if I am on for a few days on my routine it should be back to what I was before they got here.

I have missed all of you and your postings.  I am hoping to get to read them all and see where everything is at.

Wishing you a great day it is going to be 82F today.  Beautiful weather I have 3 weeks left before I go home and I am going to take advantage of it.

Talk later.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/13/2016:
For some reason, I thought you were always home...where are you going home to?

Enjoy these 3 weeks...I've been enjoying some early springtime weather here. so nice. was in the upper 70's a couple days last week! beautiful to go outside for a few minutes at lunchtime!

hollybelle on 03/13/2016:
Ah, kids and grandkids - so good when they come - so good when they go!!!! I know what you mean about missing posts, etc. Although I was gone for quite awhile from the site a couple of time - I still think of everyone on here now and others who come and who are not active right now as my "friends". Good to come back and see what's going on with them and share our side.

puddles on 03/13/2016:
Yes while the kids were here for the past 10 days it was absolutely impossible to get some down time for myself so I knew I would post as soon as they went away.

Good evening

Had a great day and now I am waiting to come in from Disney.  They text me saying they where in SC and should be in within the next 3 hours.  The house has been empty since they left last Monday and now the house will be full again soon. 

Got the final cooking done today I am ready well as ready as I can be.  Not sure which of the two grandkids is sleeping with me tonight but I am guarantee a few knees in my back or slaps or elbows during the night.... lol.... don't we all remember those good old days..... lol 

We are expecting absolutely wonderful weather all week in the 70s that is great for their last week of holidays. 

That is about all for me nothing else much going on at this end.

My postings are boring as compared to all the others on this site.  Oh well it is what it is in my little world.

Wishing you all a great evening.

I grew up with 10 siblings. I know a thing or two about knees and elbows.

You are always so prepared for everything!

When Rosalie has spent the night with me - I have to sleep with her. She is a very poor sleeper. She trashes about like an octopus. Enjoy your time with them!

Good afternoon.

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

I had just finished typing my post and it just disappeared.  So this one will be a little bit shorter.

Got the rest of the shopping done today.  Found a few interesting things for the little ones.  Not much junk in this house and the little ones seem to fall into the house routine and do not miss whatever they have back home.  They probably associate it with being around me and do not expect to have all the sweets and the rest of the stuff while in my house.

All is good at this end and I wish you a great day and a wonderful weekend.

Good afternoon

Having a great day food and drinks.

Getting things done again for the re-entry of the gang on Sunday.  Looking forward to it.  It does make it a little bit busy but if all is done prior to their arrival I will not be running like chicken with head cut off.  I also want to spend as much time with them and not in the kitchen.  These people eat their three meals a day and the schedule is not all at the same time for the first two meals of the day.  Thank God dinner is the main around the table with everybody.  During the day it is a grab and go with kids. 

So now I am finished for the day and will relax until tomorrow and then get what I have to get done at that time.

Wishing you all a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/04/2016:
Hi Puddy. Grab & go sounds better anyways as it's less planned and more what you wanna eat!? maybe more options for everyone. enjoy your relax time before the hurricane ;)

grannyannie on 03/04/2016:
Enjoy the visit, Fran. You're doing well.

Good morning

All is good at this end food and water.

Planning a day of doing absolutely nothing.  The weather is great.

Apart from that I am happy that I am keeping myself in check during this visit with the kids.  The advantage is that they are away for the next few 5 days which gives me a full 5 days of totally going back to my routine before they come back for a week.  Always nice to fall back into known territory. 

So I will leave you guys on that note and I wish you all a great day.

You've done well with staying on track while the kids were there. Kudos to you!

puddles on 03/03/2016:
I think it is more the fact that I accept there are no other alternative but going back to my routine. It keep me sane.

Hi guys

All is  good at this end.  Since the kids are away for the next 5 days in St. Pete and Disney area I am on a major relax mode.... lol   til the tornado comes back in on Sunday.... lol 

Not much today did some shopping the cupboards got real empty real fast. 

So the kids pack up all their stuff and at the same time they took my body soap, my shampoo, so I get in the shower today and start the water I am all wet reach for the body soap and then I noticed everything is gone.... kids I think it does not matter how old they are they still find a way of making their presence felt.... lol

That is about it for what is going on in my place today.  Everything is under control and that is good.

Wishing you all a great day.

puddles on 03/02/2016:
No they are not in trouble actually it just makes for a great story which we will have a few good laughs about.

Hi guys

It is busy time here with the kids but so much fun. All as worked out meals and activities.  I will try to post a picture.

This is my son and myself on the beach yesterday.  We spent the day at the beach and had a blast playing paddle ball. 

Just thought I would check in - all is good.

Wishing you all a great day.

Hi guys

This week my food and water has been really easy to keep on track.

I seem to think that I have been busy getting ready for my company that the food has just taken a second or third priority on my list of things.  It is good when you do not have too much time to think about what you food is on the schedule for the day.  Actually it also makes it easy when their is no junk in the house and whatever you reach for is good and healthy food.  I am just over the moon that the kids will be here tomorrow.  Its as if I can't wait. 

Anyway not to sure how often I will be posting with the tornado of the little ones being around but I will see how it goes.  I will definitely tell you all about it when they depart for their week in St. Petes and Disney - I get a mid week break -  then they are back. 

Wishing you all a great day.

It is good not to be preoccupied with food. I know what you mean! Have a wonderful weekend with your family!

OhioRaven on 02/26/2016:
Sounds Great, Puddy.

I agree, it's sometimes GREAT to be distracted from food thoughts! Enjoy the time with your grandkids!
