Today, i'm going to be positive.  Enough of all this complaining I do!!

I had a great weekend, calories were a little higher but i'm okay with that as I enjoyed every little bite!  Friday - 1,500 calories; Saturday - 1,700; Sunday - 1,900.  I watched so many movies, chatted with friends and family, travelled to the city.  I like driving highways when the sun is just coming out.  By the time I was halfway to the city, the sun was flowing through my side windows, warming my arms and face and it felt great.  I can't wait for spring to arrive!  I needed that boost of vitamin D!

I went to the gym on Friday and did 30 minutes on the treadmill, 8 of that running.  I'm getting there!

Today is another gym day, plus grocery shopping and cleaning up some bills and papers.  I would like to run for about 12 minutes today, so hopefully I will have enough energy for that by the end of the day!

Have a great week everyone!

MoodyMe on 01/18/2010:
Sounds like a great weekend!!! Amazing what a little sunshine can do for us isn't it? I'm ready for spring as well~

Hope you have a great day!!


chidogs on 01/18/2010:
Thanks for your comments. I am working on being creative about indoor exercises. So long as daughter and hubs aren't here, I don't mind hopping around a bit.:)


bez15 on 01/18/2010:
Great job with the treadmill recently! Running on those are so tough for me. I can't wait for spring either!! We can walk/jog outside! Woooohooo


panda22 on 01/18/2010:
Glad to hear your weekend went so well! Awesome job building up your treadmill running minutes, it's a great feeling when they start to add up each time! I can't wait for spring either, it's my favorite season =) Have a nice evening and a great week!


nita51 on 01/18/2010:
I love it when we have the mind set, to just enjoy our foods, and let our bodies balance everything out, (especially when we know were eating healthy} Yes I too like the way the sun feels. I've been in for the last couple of days, but 2mmrrw, I'll think I'll go for a short drive. You're doing a great job. Keep on loving yourself. Take Care


selina on 01/19/2010:
Have a great week, too!!!!

Doctors in small towns, even small cities, in this place are usually abrasive, unfeeling and... well... laughable.  This last one told me to stay on Depo forever, unless I want to try to conceive.  This drug is one factor in causing Osteoporosis (which is a disease that has diminished my mother's ability to do most things).  I go for another shot today after work.

I'm in my early thirties, but I feel so much older than that.

My dinner party went well last night.  I didn't burn the lasagna, my guests pretended that the chocolate pudding pie (light version) WASN'T too runny that it was spilling over the lid of the dish, and we had a nice evening of watching episodes of Charmed.  Took a bath, went to bed.  1,700 calories yesterday.  I think that's pretty good, considering we had a nice big dinner.

TGIF.  Seriously.  I'm glad this week is over!  Gym tonight, then Saturday i'm driving into the city to lunch with Dad and catch up with a friend.  On Sunday I hope to find another old movie on tv, lay on the couch, do laundry.

This morning, my tummy feels flatter than usual.  I want to drink lots of water today.  Better get on it, I guess.

hollybelle on 01/15/2010:
Sorry to hear about your day yesterday and about the problems you are having with female stuff. It's always the women isn't it - I wish men had to be more responsible about birth control! I am well past child-bearing years (55) but I did my time on birth control patrol (so to speak) - WHEW! I do have a younger friend who has recently tried this Nuvo-Ring thing and really likes it. I don't know if that would work for you, or if it has the same side effects as the depo-provera shots, etc. I also I just realized I'm assuming you are taking the depo for birth control when you may be taking it for theraputic reasons - so excuse all together if these comments are invalid or unwanted in anyway....:o) On the food front - looks like you are doing well with exercise and caloreis - YAY!


glycrina on 01/15/2010:
I am going to be thirty this year and I feel like I am turning 55 -- wishing I have only ten years until retirement! I am sorry about your women troubles but you are doing a great job on staying active and keeping calories low. Congrats on a successful dinner party!


nita51 on 01/16/2010:
Some large city Dr. can be abrasive too. I actually had a Dr. look at me with disgust in his eyes, then ask me if I smoked cigarettes? I answered "no never" then he shook his head, and said "well maybe you should have" as to say maybe you wouldn't have been so obese. What good is trading one addiction, for another? But that was then and this is now. I am getting my life together and silly comments like that doesn't bother me anymore. Keep drinking that water and believing in yourself. Take Care.

Yesterday I went to see my gynecologist about the problems I'm having with my menstrual cycle.  I thought I was going for a simple, external ultrasound.  Oh, how wrong I was.  All in all, it was a horrible day, ending with the doctor asking to do yet another exam and me immediately yelling out "NO WAY!".  When I finally got home, I collapsed on the couch and slept for four hours straight because the whole thing just... exhausted me to my breaking point.  I did go to the gym, but only walked for 30 minutes and didn't even run one little bit.  But, I DID go to the gym.

Tuesday had 1,300 calories, Wednesday 1,600 calories.  I went to the gym on Tuesday too - ran 14 minutes out of 35 total.  Really good day.

I was stuck below 1,000 calories yesterday after eating supper.  Was so full, and so blah, that I didn't WANT to eat anything, just wanted to go to bed.  But I had some cashews, then tried to take a warm bath.  I had just gotten into the tub and decided I needed the water to be just a little warmer.  In the process of adding some and letting some out, the plug stopped working.  Once I had it fixed, almost all the water was out of the tub and I was a-shivering away.  When I tried once again to fill the tub, my hot water had run out.  Eventually, I got myself out of the tub and back onto the couch, where emotional eating set in and I had me some chips.  Finally the hot water came back and I had a nice bath and went to bed with the heating pad secured to my midsection.

The feeling has spilled over into today, which is really unfortunate because I am hosting a dinner party tonight.  Trials and tribulations, huh?

thinnside40 on 01/14/2010:
Darnit, I was hoping that by now you would of found a Dr. that could help you..... Sorry you haven't.... Take Care!

*YAWN*

I am so tired right now.  I was in bed by 11pm, but couldn't fall asleep for what felt like hours and hours.  The alarm shrilly buzzing in my face this morning at 6:30 was just about enough to put me over the edge  emotionally.  I almost called into work, but thought to myself "for lack of sleep?" and decided against it.  That would have aged me.  Anyways, gulping down the coffee but it hasn't slapped me in the face yet.  I'm so tired, the computer screen keeps blurring out of focus on me.  This entry will probably take me an hour to write.

So my gym partner is pretty sick these days.  She decided against going to the gym last night and instead wanted to go today.  So I told her that I would go with her.  The extra time at home didn't really help me out too much - I saved some pictures onto discs and layed on the couch mostly.  But I did have an evening meeting, and it helped to not be so rushed (which is usually what I am most of the time - self-inflicted, of course). 

I am thinking of getting the Dell Vostro 320 all-in-one desktop computer.  My monitor at home died and the computer I have now is slow and old.  Does anyone know if this is a good choice?  I just want something to play games on and burn the odd disc of pictures and home videos.

Yesterday was 1,400 calories.  That's very good.  That's two consecutive days of very good.  I am very good.  I should say that to myself more often!

hollybelle on 01/12/2010:
YES! YES! YES! you should say nice things to yourself - out loud and in your head - it's amazing what being positive can do for you. You deserve good comments and good things. Others don't always do that for us - so why not take care of ourselves with compliments and positive thoughts about ourselves? I may not like my weight right now, but I like myself. That's something!


geevee on 01/12/2010:
So you did a "Geevee" did ya? Good for you! Be sure you measure out and put in a small container what you've decided to snack on. Just don't keep eating from the jar or can until you're full. You get to eat so much more that way!


biscottibody59 on 01/12/2010:
Thanks for you kind and thoughtful sentiments:-)

Don't know about that computer--but I will be in the market for one myself, I hope later than sooner.

Have a good day!


thinnside40 on 01/12/2010:
Take care of yourself.....


nita51 on 01/12/2010:
Look at you,,,, you're doing wonderful. Hope you get some good feedback regarding the computer. I'm not very computer savvy. But I know you'll make the right decision.

legcramps - Monday Jan 11, 2010

My weekend went fairly well, in all ways imaginable. 

After my horrible evening on Thursday, I forced myself to calm down and take it easy on the weekend.  Normally, I would be a cleaning freak or over-eat or double book with friends to make the time go by faster.  This time, I forced myself to think about how I acted, how everyone around me acted, and to really analyse and figure out what the real issues were.  I was upset with my friend's hubby on Thursday at badminton.  The fact that X was there would have been ok with me if only friend's hubby would have acknowledged that HE was there as MY friend, not X's.  I believe that is what pushed me to react to X's being there the way I did.  I am a little ashamed of my actions and of my friend's actions, but can only move on from here.  At least I stopped myself from making a complete fool of myself by losing it on X in front of people who probably have no idea that he played me for five years.  I am proud of that at least, even if some people there may have thought I acted high schoolish.

Friday was poor with calories - meaning, I needed more than I got.  It was kind of a wierd day, the morning and early afternoon were nice and slow, then in the later afternoon I realized I had to do SOME things and so my day sped up a bit and I lost track of mealtimes.  I still managed just under 1,000 calories, but I know it should have been more.

Saturday was 2,200 calories.  I ended up going for supper with a friend of mine, boxing half of it up, then eating it a few hours after I got home.  The good part is that I drank two bottles of water before deciding that, yes, I was still hungry!

Sunday was 1,500 calories.  It was a great day, filled with laundry chores, some computer work, and watching old movies on tv like 'Sweet November'. 

Back at work today, taking down Christmas decorations and trying to get the pile of paperwork down a bit since I was off on Friday.  Planning to hit the gym a little earlier because I have an evening meeting tonight.

panda22 on 01/11/2010:
Glad you had a good weekend and that this week has started out better for you!


mskitty on 01/11/2010:
Uggggg I just read your last entry about your X and that "friend". People are so stressful. I seriously have zero friends because I simply have no tolerance for drama anymore. Everybody just seems to be crazy and I just slowly stop hanging out with them because there is always something that either happens or that they want to get me in the middle of. *shakes head* I am trying to make new friends but I really turn off the minute stuff like that comes up. I honestly think I am better off. anyways I am ranting. Thats what happens when you get cabin fever.... good luck today.


greengirl on 01/11/2010:
Hey legcramps thanks for calling by my diary. I too have problems with eating because of the behaviour of other people . It would be good if we could just ignore them wouldn't it. Your calories seem to average out to a good total for the few days tho' so at least no damage was done. Be good to yourself :)


MoodyMe on 01/11/2010:
I'm glad that you took the time to process what happened and your reaction to it..That's always a good thing to do. Sounds like you had a good weekend~Keep up the good work legcramps~you got this!


weightlossyoyo on 01/11/2010:
Overall calories you seem to have done pretty good. Good movie on Sunday. I watched it not too long ago.


nita51 on 01/12/2010:
Well,, some days we do eat less calories, other days. but somehow I feel, it all balances out. At lease we're not eating like we use to. Right? Trust me,,,,I use to get up, in the middle of the night and cook a full coarse meal, I'm serious, and then go back to bed. That was many years ago,, thank God, I'm no longer "living on the edge" like that anymore. sorry to babble on, but I needed to get that off my chest. Thanks for listening.

Don't you just love it when things are going really great for you and then all of a sudden, something happens to totally bash into oblivion all your efforts?  Just an F.Y.I. - I will be complaining again today... i'd rather you called it venting, but i'll understand why you might think the proper phrase for it is 'being a baby'.

I did ok yesterday.  Actually, I should have eaten more, but I didn't realize I could until I added up the calories today.  Just over 1,000. 

I frequented the gym, but decided instead of going hog-wild on the treadmill that I would take it easy since I was going to play badminton for an hour and a half afterwards with my friend's hubby.  I went a total of 35 minutes, with 6 minutes of running.  Took it easy, but still felt like I did something so that was nice.

I made sure to leave the gym early enough to make it to badminton on time.  When I got there, friend's hubby was already there.  For whatever reason, he didn't acknowledge that I showed up, instead walking with his racket and a birdie over to an empty court.  In the meantime, I signed myself in and was about to tie up my laces when I noticed the biggest a$$ in the world walk into the gym.  Yes, that's right.  X showed up.  He stood not four feet from me.  I wanted to take both my hands, wrap them around his neck...well, you get the idea.  The gall of that incredulous boy!

My breath sort of 'wooshed' out of me as I saw him, and I think I said something like 'really'.  He heard that (because he stood not four feet from me, the arrogant bastard!), and said 'hi'.  I laughed at him.  Well, I sort of huffed, hicupping every so often.  He looked at me and I swear to the heavens, I believe he truly thinks he's done nothing wrong.  I think he really believes we could be friends.  He's psychotic!

Friend's hubby noticed X was there and, with a bright smile lighting his face, ran up to him and said 'you're my partner, ok?'.  WTF?  WTF is UP with THAT?  He then looked over at me and said 'hi legcramps'.  I barely looked at him, sort of half-nodding, half-choking as I waggled over to an empty court with some guy I didn't even want to play with because I thought i'd be playing with friend's hubby.

I stayed half an hour.  Out of an hour and a half.  I ruined my workout for this.  It ruined my night.  Friend's hubby made me feel betrayed, even though later that night he tried to make up for it.  I feel like I can't talk to any of my friends because they're all still friends with X and GOSH, I would NEVER want to put THEM in the middle of anything!

Went home.  Ate a granola bar.  Drank some water.  Stayed up late crying.  That's my life.

I have today off, am hoping to go to the gym to let off more of this steam, but will see what else I have to get done.  Just hanging back with a coffee for now.

nenak on 01/08/2010:
life! sometimes top of the world, sometime as pants as pants can be!!!! look at it this way. your feeling rock bottom, the only way is up! you probably dont want to know this but it will get better! in the meantime dont let him get you down! take care sarah


starfish on 01/08/2010:
*hugs* At least you did great on calories and still got some exercise.


sundropgurl on 01/08/2010:
I'm proud of you that you kept your focus even in the midst of the stress!!! You'll get through this! (( hugs ))


panda22 on 01/08/2010:
Sorry to hear about your bum night at badminton! I hate people who act like that! I guess you could say the advice you gave me fits your night as well! Love the Serenity prayer btw, I have it on a plaque on my wall! Thanks for posting it so I could read it, needed that! Hope your day is better today! You still did great yesterday despite X!! Happy Friday!


hollybelle on 01/08/2010:
Man, that's cold. My question is - what were your friends thinking - I might have missed something, but obviously theye didn't tell you he'd be the 4th badminton player??? What's up with that. I don't know the story of the breakup 'cause I've been gone awhile, but if you and ex aren't on speaking terms and your friends knew it.....Gee! Get to know some new people! I'm not sure I would have even stayed to play at all. You were good to, at least, attempt to play with them! Well, it is what it is, as they say - don't let it stop you from your goals health & fitness or otherwise. I hope your weekend is good. Give yourself something nice and keep thinking - it's them - not me - BECAUSE IT IS!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/09/2010:
starfish is right...you did get some exercise and the whole day wasn't a complete wash even if you think it was.

did you ask friend's hubby if he had planned on playing you on badminton? you should let him know you had been hoping to be his partner or whatever it's called and that you are sorry it didn't work out. see what he says...maybe you both had a misunderstanding?

all in all, don't let this little bit of a night put you in the dumps...it seems that the friend's hubby wasn't on your wavelength at all! you'll be ok!


MoodyMe on 01/09/2010:
Wow..in my opinion you have every reason to be pissed off and hurt..I would be also. And venting here is a good way to help relieve some of the pressure, and don't ever think you're being a baby...seriously. Ugggg...I'm pisst off and I don't even know these people!

However, I have to say GOOD FOR YOU for getting a workout in, and for NOT making yourself feel better afterwards with food. That's huge!!! I may have not things as well as you did!

Let it go now, it's done and over..it upset you last night~but don't let it have anymore power over you...

Hope today was better...Keep up the great job and stay strong!


weightlossyoyo on 01/09/2010:
Well how rude what that? I am sorry that some men can be such AZZes! Don't play with him anymore! Hope tomorrow is better!


biscottibody59 on 01/11/2010:

Welp.  Howdy.

I wonder if you're wondering what kind of entry i'm going to make today, especially with a beginning like... welp.  howdy.  Don't worry, i'm fine.

1,600 calories yesterday - SWEET!  RECORD!  MUST BE!  I even had to push down a granola bar after the gym.  That never happens.  Ne..v..er.

So I got home from work yesterday and miraculously I wasn't overly tired.  So, I washed the dishes, cooked some rice for supper, ate... ok, that's when it started to fall apart.  I could barely keep my eyes open.  I stumbled over to the couch... kidding, I was already on the couch... and closed my eyes for a bit.  We all know by now that napping is not good for me.  Holy cow.  Gosh, can I get grumpy - I never really noticed until now that I have to live with myself and not take it out on someone else.

Raging mad, I left for the gym.  This is a great mood to be in when you want to get a good workout in.  Really, it is!  It was wickedly cold in the gym last night, took me nearly 10 minutes just to warm up but once I did I gaver pretty good.  Total time on the treadmill was 41 minutes, 10 of that running, a few of THAT sprinting.  I almost threw up.  I was trying to find a comfortable pace and i'm starting to think that pace is going to be a faster one.  It felt pretty good - and besides, i'd always been a sprinter, so of course I would be more comfortable sprinting than shuffling along at a slower pace.

Rage now dissipated, I headed home, took a bath and stayed up playing on the computer until 10:30.  This morning my head feels so clear it's almost unbelievable.

I have to go to prayers on Friday evening, so decided to gym tonight instead of trying to fit it in on Friday.  I also have badminton tonight.  Here's to getting it all done!

nenak on 01/07/2010:

mcwoo40 on 01/07/2010:

panda22 on 01/07/2010:
lol nice entry! Great workout! I hate going slow on the treadmill as well, gets boring! If you run/jog it also goes by faster =P


nita51 on 01/07/2010:
Working out will pay off for you,,,So glad to see how persistent you are, can't wait until I'm able to start working out, just waiting to lose more weight, so it wont be so hard on my joints. Have a great evening.


MoodyMe on 01/07/2010:
Working out is most definitely a stress/anger reliever!! And so much better mentally and physically for us than relieving that anger or stress with food..so Good for YOU!!!

I'm impressed with your sprinting..I am addicted to my treadmill and will do some running but I can't do a fast pace..I burn out way too fast!! I'm a slow jogger who plugs away...lol

Keep up the great work...consistency and persistence pays off big time!!


mskitty on 01/08/2010:
wonderful! and nah on the ginger ale bit... it was a sorta instinctive grab into the fridge sadly. We had gotten some a week ago because my husband was sick and there was some left. Haha and now that I am talking about it I am tempted to grab some more lol.

Yesterday was a good day, as compared to Disastrous Monday - but you've already heard all about that.  The only thing I seem to have erroneously left out from Monday was the amount of time I spent at the gym.  I was there 45 minutes, 36 on the treadmill and the other 9 minutes stretching, water-breaking and pulling my boots on and off.

Yesterday I didn't work out.  Do you know that my right shoulder STILL hurts from playing Wii Tennis?!  I can't believe it.  Do you know how difficult it is for me to finish all my bathroom 'duties' with a bum right arm?!  Bum right arm, well, no pun intended.  Really!

I drank like 6 litres of water yesterday.  I think it brought out all the muscle aches in my body because this morning, oh boy.  My body hurts.  The shoulder, my hips, the tops of my thighs, my lower calves, even down to my big toe.  Hurts.  AND, to top it all off (though i'm NOT complaining, i'm actually in a pretty good mood) my doggie plopped herself on top of me all night long so that I couldn't move and twist around like I normally do.  So I woke up this morning with my rib cage aching horribly!  You'd think I should just hole up in a dark corner and stay there, huh.

Even so, I AM in a good mood.  And it's gonna stay that way.  Either that, or i'll make myself angry again before I go to the gym tonight so that i'll run just as well as I did on Monday.  Whateva'.  :+)

Oh, 1,800 calories yesterday.  Whew.  Glad I remembered that.

panda22 on 01/06/2010:
LOL Monday coming around again in itself is disastrous =P Awesome calories yesterday! Sorry to hear about your aches, but muscle aches are a good sign after working out, it means you are workin those muscles! And then once they get a chance to repair and rebuild you've gained some muscle which helps with fat loss woohoo! Have a great day!


weightlossyoyo on 01/06/2010:
Good job at the gym and with your calories! Yeah that wii will make you sore. The boxing is an awesome workout too.

Sorry I mislead you slightly. I wasn't wearing shorts all day but I would have this afternoon for walking outside---IF I had gone for that walk. Just didn't have time today, so much going on.

Oh boy.  Here comes the Great Confession:

I was doing really well until I got home from work.  I had started to become slightly grumpy, but other than that I was fine.  I decided to cut up some cheese with crackers and have that before going to the gym. 

(This means i'll have eaten cheese for three consecutive days in a row.  Did I mention i'm pretty sure i'm lactose intolerant?  No wonder i'm such a grump lately.)

I had a lot of cheese.  I was literally worried I wouldn't be able to run on the treadmill because i'd eaten TOO MUCH cheese.  So I get to the gym.  My friend isn't there yet, forgot her shoes, blah blah blah, so I start walking on the treadmill.  At around ten minutes, my friend finally shows up.  We talk.  I ask about her day and she proceeds to give me a 30-minute run down.  Then forgets to ask how i'm doing.  But, I might only be pissed off about this because i'm already feeling like crap, and I just want someone to know that.  I'd like someone to ask.  I'd like to vent.  I run.  It feels pretty good.  I run some more.  I run for about 7 minutes altogether.  It's a good start, and i'm sufficiently sweating enough to call it a night.

I slow the treadmill down and say i'm going home, that i'll do my push-ups and curl-ups when I get home.  Of course, I forget.  When I get home, I run a bath and spend the next half hour soaking and reading, reading and soaking. 

I'm sitting on the couch afterwards, watching t.v., playing on the computer, and feeling hungry.  I fill up a water bottle and start slugging it down, but it's not fighting my hunger.  I eat again.  Chocolate cream pie.  Then another slice.  Then a chimichanga.  Those things are like 500 calories each!

I'm surprised I wasn't too uncomfortable to sleep last night.  That would have certainly been the kicker - to eat that much food so late at night, then not be able to sleep.  Total cals - 3,300.  At least I finally got some actual exercise in.

Hey there! Sorry to hear about your night, but don't let it get you down! I know a bunch of people who do the same thing...tell you all about their day for an hour and then forget to ask how you are! lol my sis in law does it sometimes and it's annoying. Sounds like you reached for comfort foods to deal with your emotions...I can relate to that as I do it too! Next time if you are feeling munchy at night maybe grab some fruit or even some mixed nuts, those are filling. Don't worry, today is a new day! And kudos for getting to the gym! Have a good day!

On my worst insomniac nights when I finally give up and eat a half sandwich, I then usually go right to sleep. I know all the experts advise against evening snacking but it really works for me. You would have had a ball last night with my supply of olives ir you're an olive lover.. Yes, I still have aabout 5-6 containers of them stacked up in the fridge but I haven't gone near them since getting back to Christmas Eve weight. What a godsend that loss was for me! I've delibrately stayed away from the cheese caase at the store because I love cheese as much as you do.

Ok to counter-act the day yesterday - try eating lots of bulky but calorie sparse foods today - like lots of fruit and vegetables that dont' have alot of cals, but will really fill you up. That used to help me when I had a day like you did yesterday. I'm glad I remembered that. Now I can do when I have a day like that! Best wishes.

Oh my! I think I'm lactose too, so I feel your pain!

Awwww, how are you feeling now? See, I'm asking. I hate when people don't ask how I'm doing. My Sis and Mom just start in about themselves and never even consider me. Oh, well. We'll just have to tough it out. I hope today was better for you.

Hope tomorrow is a better day for you. Sometimes it is just hard. Tomorrow will be a new day, just act like today didn't happen. It is over and there is nothing that can be done for what has already happened. You will do better tomorrow.



legcramps - Monday Jan 04, 2010

Weight: 0.0

Whew.  It's been quite the new year so far!  Good, but busy!

I sort of triple-booked myself on new year's eve.  I went to grandma's for supper, then to a friend's birthday party, then had company over at my place to bring in the new year.  The next day, Jan 1st, was really quiet which was nice.  I don't think I did anything.  Let's be honest - I don't think I could have done anything even if I wanted to!  Jan 2nd, I drove into the city to see my Dad and his wife for Christmas.  Jan 3rd I spent with a couple of friends, watching a movie and playing Wii.

I have yet another borrowed book to read; City of Glass.  Can't wait to rip into it!

Tonight I have a gym date!  I'm hoping to start by running about 5 minutes on the treadmill, with a 20-25 minute walk.  Also gonna start with 10 pushups and 20 curlups, and do some stretching.

Other than that, laundry is on my schedule, and cleaning up the kitchen.

Wii is so fun! Glad you got some time to relax after your busy New Year's Eve! Have a great day!

GEEZZZ very busy! You need to rest. What type of book is City of Glass? I have Pearl Cove a friend loaned me, don't know what its about but she swears it is good, and I am listening to Laurell K Hamiltons Kiss of Shadow its pretty good but I LOVE her Anita Blake Series, her series are Sci-fi which I defiantly would not have thought I would like. The Twilight Saga suckered me into that direction though. Always looking for different things to read.

Hi,,, you went to grandma's for dinner? I'll bet she can really cook! Most grandmas can. So glad you managed to get a chance to rest. Thanks for checking on me, hope you have a fantastic week. Take Care.

It all sounds good there!

I can't help but think of your weather when we get the least bit cold--I don't know exactly where you are in Canada, but you're about 900 times colder than it ever gets here (TX) from what you occasionally report. Don't forget to take your Vitamin D!
