I think you are completely right---listen to your body, its telling you something. 125lbs is a VERY VERY resonable weight---congrats on the 3lb loss!!!! I saw your pics, you look great!

Meg


mommyof two on 05/30/2001:
well, goodfo you judy, 3 more pounds. are you sure you need to loose more? you are so little now.well, you know how YOU feel hu. you have a good day with your company, lisa


Kyrin on 05/30/2001:
Woo-Hoo!!! Three more! When do we get updated pics? (hinting)

Hugs!


diva on 05/30/2001:
Hello Pastagal. I really love that name bacause I am sort of a pasta gal myself. Congrats on the 3 lbs. You are doing so good. It must feel really nice to be down that low. You have some fantastic willpower so keep it up.. Have a great and fantastic day. Sherri.


pushedtothewall on 05/30/2001:
Three pounds, Judy? Fantastic!!! You are not kidding that it gets harder to manage any loss at all the closer one gets to goal. You did it, however, and I salute you. And, I am thinking of you there expecting company and all of the conversation and memories that will generate. You must be dearly loved by this family of your husband's. 103 degrees? Yikes! What are people talking about in your circle regarding the situation there with the California power shortages and costs? Who seems to be the hope for the people? What are your local newscasts and newspapers having to say about the President's visit there and his opinions? Take good care of your health today in this heat and with the additional stress. I am thinking of you and all of your kind and supportive comments. :) :) :) ooooooh, it is nice to have such a sweet friend in this world! Connie


carrie on 05/30/2001:
125! You are awsome babe! Oh!!!! You lucky,lucky girl! You've worked so hard! You've been consistent! You've done it!!! How wonderful!!! That watermelon may be doing the trick! I may just run out and get me some!!!

Carrie


TNYankee950 on 05/30/2001:
Congrats on the 3 lbs. 103 degrees...that's unbelievable for this time of year. Is it always that hot where you live. Hope your visit goes well. Thanks for your comments earlier to me. I appreciated them.


thatmochagirl on 05/30/2001:
Congrats on 3 lbs... WOW you are going to wow em on the beach this summer! Thanks for your comments to me JUDY! Have a great day!


Soon2BThin on 05/30/2001:
WOW, Pasta!! 3 more pounds! You are unbelievable!! But I do believe it, you are soooo consistant. Girl, you're the one I think of for my inspiration. I know I'm not doing so well right now, but I'll get going here soon. You certainly have shown us it CAN be done! Please don't lose so much more that you completely disappear, haha. BTW, I love the heat here, it's a dry heat so it feels kinda like being in a sauna, but I have to take a dip in the pool every 10 minutes to cool off, ya know. Hope you get to enjoy your pool soon. Take care, my heroine!


breakaway on 05/30/2001:
Glad to see your mother in law is gettting some company today! I hope she does remember him...it's really hard to deal with that. My mother doesn't remember me at all. She remember's the older children but not me. It's pretty strange but when the doctor explained it to me it made sense. It's really hard for the kids to deal with her not knowing them. They get really sad. Maybe things will change. You are doing so well on your diet. I think your body is telling you that it's enough though...I think your weight is perfect now. But if you still feel you need to lose some more by all means try and try again. Because if your not happy why have you went through all this work already? I wish you the best of luck on whatever you decide! Thank you for your comment today! It sure did make me smile!


dvdmon on 05/30/2001:
Hey, that's great about the loss, congrats! I wanted to mention something and I hope you're not offended, but I've seen that you have wow chips quite a bit and if I'm not mistaken they have trans fats in them. I don't know if you've read much about trans fats, but there's really good evidence now that they are at LEAST as bad as saturated fat for you, but probably a lot worse. There are so many products out there that have them, so many people are consuming a ton without even realizing it. I just thought I'd mention this and suggest maybe looking for some chips that might be slightly higher in fat but without the transfat? If I'm being too intrusive, please feel free to slap me, or at least ignore me!


estelle on 05/30/2001:
Hi! I'm so happy for you, 3 pounds!!!! Viewed your pictures, you look great (cute grandbabies too). Have a good day! Robin


herb on 05/31/2001:
As far as the low fat blueberry muffin with the 10 points. You can have one to, just go to DunkinDonuts. As far as the cashews goes. I will not eat them, they went off the Weight Watchers Points calculator. Could not even be measured.

Read your second entry with the explanation of where you live and why you get those windy 103�

carrie on 05/29/2001:
I love the feeling of "newness" when you change furniture around. I remember when I was a little girl and I'd come home from school and Mom had been having a moving marathon. She'd change the living room around all by herself. It was so cool! Anyway, you are doing so great. Exercise everyday? Wow! Sunday is a day of rest ya know. ha ha

Good goal for June. I'll be rooting for you!!! Pam


Krispy on 05/29/2001:
Hi there- sounds like you have been busy, when are you not!

Great idea for goal in June. I think mine is going to be, cutting out sugar, well no biscuits, cakes or chocolate! I want to be able to lose 6 pounds - I think that's achievable and then I will only be one pound away from goal - wouldn't that be great!

Take care and have a great day! JANE

Good luck on your weigh in. You sound very busy. I bet the room looks great. Have a good day.-Mel

muggg on 05/29/2001:
What a week you have had while I was away! Sorry about your blue spell... don't you sometimes wonder if it's related to the migranes? I felt a little blue this weekend after I got home.. hence the eating frenzy and lo and behold.. I'm struggling with a migrane now. Going through the eye thing too! Glad you have meds to help you out!

I'm glad to be back and on track.. I know my checking in with you and the others has a lot to do with my success! I'm pumping up to do more exercise too.. I'm with you!

misseve on 05/28/2001:
thats right - planning, consistency and goal setting. these things are so key! :) looks like you're doing well - keep it up. just a quick question about WW, i dunnoif you can answer. but anyway i wanna try the points system, but i don't have time to go to the meetings, etc. cuz i have a f/t job + p/t + workouts, etc... do you think it's possible just to buy the points package? i suppose it'd come with the booklet of which foods = how many points. thanks!


breakaway on 05/28/2001:
Don't have much time to comment but I just wanted to let you know that hubby has made it down under 300 lbs!!! I am so excited for him. He also bought a new bike and has been riding that with the kids. They just love it! It has been so many years since we rode bike and the kids are so thrilled he has joined them again! Have a great day today pasta!

Well I just noticed that you ALSO decided to make a late night entry! I guess you can read in my entry that I didn't think it would accept the new date for us out here on the Pacific coast until OUR midnight. But it did and I want to make this a habit if it works out for me. You had quite a day! I hope that this new week is just the best you have had in a long while, Judy.... just seven days running that has a lot of wonderful to them. You surely deserve that! Your friend, Connie


Miss Piggy on 05/28/2001:
Hey Shopping Safari. You go girl. I love to shop. It does feel good to have a well stocked house doesn't it. I watched a movie one time about some holocaust survivors who had to live for a long time on just what they had in the house and for some reason I never forgot it. Just feels better to be prepared. Have a terriffic day today. Did you get the waterfall put in yet? Hugs


Krispy on 05/28/2001:
Hi there Judy

Haven't been around for a while, but am back now with avengence!!! Sounds like you had a busy day what with lunch and all that shopping! Hope you found something for your reunion, you will just look so great and will amaze all your old schoolfriends - wont that be just great!

Have a great day! JANE


diva on 05/28/2001:
It sounds like you stay busy. That is a good thing though. I read your menus of what you eat and you really do very good. Keep up the good work. Hey I am going to look at it like I did lose that 5 lbs. It makes me feel better. I think you will have a blast at the Rod Stewart concert. I have always liked his music. Have a good day and keep that willpower up. Sherri


Canadian on 05/28/2001:
Thanks so much for the tip on foods that I am preparing that I find tough to resist. I am taking your advice, I am going to eat a small saucer of potato salad...how much can that harm me right? lol. I wish I lived close to a Weight Watchers branch, it sounds like something I would enjoy. Is there any way I can do this point thing myself without the aid of Weight Watchers? With a family to cook for, it is very tough at times not to eat what they are eating. My husband is slim and my son doesn't need to loose weight either. Have a wonderful time at the Rod Stewart concert, I enjoy his music immensely. :)

Koko on 05/28/2001:
Hi, PG, thanks for the well wishes and I told my doctor about your "silent migraines." He said he'd check into it. Ugh..at any rate, I'm just going to keep bugging both him and the opthamologist until something happens. Today I haven't been nauseous as much, and I am wondering if my blood pressure doesn't go up too. I should have had it checked yesterday, but I'm going to go tomorrow and do that.

Well, I better keep this short or I'll be seeing double again and I don't want or need that again.

Glad you felt good today and what I wouldn't give to go to that Rod Stewart concert! Have fun fun fun.

Angela


herb on 05/28/2001:
"Man in the Moon" was the movie about Andy Kaufman, one of the things I couldn't figure out is how a intelligent person got sucked into that psychic surgery business. Funny that you mentioned Rod Stewart his name came up in conversation. My story is simply that while I was waiting for a crosstown bus one evening he came walking along Central Park West going uptown with his wife, and nobody recognized them, and if they did no one bothered them. Its one of the fallacies about us New Yorkers, we are'nt pushy. Herb


misseve on 05/29/2001:
hello again :) actually it was me who asked about WW points system, but i actually read your answer in canadian's comments page so works out. i'm from canada so i dunno if it's diff? I checked ww.com and couldn't find the price for the athome program. do you have a rough idea of price range maybe? thanks.

Hi there, thanks for your comments! I realize that the drugs lower cholesterol, but from all I've read I'm not convinced that cholesterol is a risk factor. I know this sounds heretical, but if you look at some of the articles I posted a few days back, including one called Cholesterol Myths, there seems to be evidense that cholesterol levels are convincingly linked with heart disease. That is why I do not want to start taking a medicine which has potentially significant side affects to lower something which may have nothing to do with my risks. I would much rather try to do this in a natural way and even if I can't do it in a natural way, I STILL don't know if I would risk it and take the drugs. I would want to get a stress test, and/or that new mri thing which is supposed to indicate how much plaque is in your arteries, etc., before doing something so harsh. Yes, I consider drugs to be harsh, I'm sorry. It's one thing if I KNEW I had heart disease, then maybe I would take them. But not just as a preventative for something I have no idea whether I'll get or not. Anyway, that's how I feel...


pushedtothewall on 05/27/2001:
So happy to read your entry today and discover that you found a little time for self yesterday. Good job! I will be thinking of you there today spending time with your husband and just "bein' a gal out in the world". Take care and I will "see" you tomorrow, I hope!

Yes Ronnie is what you might say is a "hoot", talk about an original. I hope when you go to the Sams Club you don't take cash, thats a lot of money. You saw movies, tell us which I'm always interested in renting <u>good</u> movies. Lastly, I hope you tell us wherte you went to lunch. See 'ya.

pushedtothewall on 05/26/2001:
Hey, pastagal, your comments to me, especially this last and more personal one, are very meaningful and treasured. It is my particular privilege to know you better. We develop these friendships here ... they are at a certain level and then another and then another... I am amazed at the responsibilities of your life, probably because we are near the same age and stage. I know that grandchildren are such gifts but that they represent so much more work than the work we did so easily when our own children were young. Our bodies are different.... we long for and need a different type of mental stimulation at this age and feel that "something" pulling at us.... an unrest, even when we know that we have blessed lives. It is an introspection. So, because I know what your day-to-day responsibilities are, I am so much more able to "understand" certain things better. It is far from selfish to long for relief from too much of neediness from others. It is NATURAL and you never say anything that would indicate that you would appreciate less "duty", but it is kind of evident that your angst, stress and resulting ill health at times, is telling on you. Do you forgive me if I have said too much or assumed too much? I am a woman, as you, and feel a kinship for you and a certain type of "knowing". I know also though, that I may be wrong. I want, as your friend, to give you all the space in the world to express yourself and assure you that you are amazingly good. Sometimes, when we have our little normal resentment thoughts, we feel that we aren't a truly "good" person: Like we think: "...if they only knew!". But, again, that is absolutely normal and does NOT change the fact of your goodness. I will not further belabor this point today. I hope that I have conveyed the spirit of my thought, at least. I was enormously happy to read that you have plans for you and the sun and the pool today. Be good to your sweet self, Judy, and take those moments that you can, when you can, which you deserve, to celebrate YOU and your womanhood and personal self. I think that you have a brilliant idea, by the way to make June a month of some measurement punctuation. If we all did that we would probably learn so much...because it is true that those measurements seem to show rather quickly. You have your reunion approaching.... you are looking GREAT and slim and I know that you will appear healthy and lovely to your old classmates. Have a wonderful day, and thank you for all of the care you show each one of us. I am one who is particularly inspired by you. Your friend, Connie


Kyrin on 05/26/2001:
Whew! Did you really get all of that accomplished today? I know that was the plan. It sounds like one of my "to-do lists" ...very ambitious!

You asked what I fixed my poor tired son for breakfast...a nice comforting plate of artery clogging bacon, eggs, and toast. ...We compromise. Yesterday he had Oatmeal with Fresh Strawberries and Blueberries. So, today I fixed him what <i>he</i> wanted. {grin}

Have a lovely afternoon by the pool!

Hugs!

I ordered one last week but it didn't get here yet. They usually only take less than a week to get. Hope we both get them soon. Hope you had a great day.

Your lucky to have a swimming pool. Maybe you could get a float under your neck, and then you could take a nap at the same time. Thank you for letting me know about that note you sent to Connie.

It's more fun to barbeque at home anyway! Whoever is in town usually goes to my parents' home for Sunday dinners, holidays, etc. SoccerMom and I live too far away to gather with the rest of the clan. So over the years, we have come to celebrate the holidays with our families and our own traditions. Her family gravitates to their boat and usually includes friends of her children. Jim, Matt, and I do a rather quieter version of the holidays because one or both of them usually work.

I think both are off this year, so we might be grilling out on the patio. That would be fun!

Hope your headache goes away! I can imagine that having things going on with your eyes can be scarey.

...and Oh, my gosh! i just noticed that you are THREE pounds away from your 125 goal weight! Congratulations!!!!!!

Hugs!

It looks like you are getting pretty serious about chicken today :) Great! I am so sorry about this bp madness, Judy. Glad that your medicaine helped some yesterday. Heat just increases so many bp issues. I am just feeling for you, suffering there. I am happy when you think to write us what you are actually going through so I can really know how it is for you. You battle so much. I sometimes am curious about your mother-in-laws conditions and age? Your baby Zach sounds so cute and sweet. Children are not that easy for us now as they once were, but there is that blessing of their love for us.... their hugs and kisses and "I love you" (s). And I can easily imagine a little toothless grin when you are feeding him and the food dribbling down :) You are going to go straight to heaven as a result of all of your good works. Be mindful of the things that you are able to do for yourself also, my friend. Connie


syb on 05/25/2001:
You have it all - elder care, baby care, hubby care.....you really are a wonderful woman to give so much to your family. Have a great holiday weekend...you deserve it!

thatmochagirl on 05/25/2001:
thanks for your comments! They make me feel good, and I just read your bio and yes you do have a big heart!! Have a good day!


estelle on 05/25/2001:
Hi! Love the fountain idea, it will be wonderful. My mother had always wanted one and finally got one a couple yrs before she past on. She moved often those last couple yrs and it was one of the few possesions she always took with her. Your menu sounds good. Now I want watermelon. It appears you're doing well on your diet. Your consistancy inspires me! Best of luck to you Robin


Miss Piggy on 05/26/2001:
Hope you are feelling better today. That is so sad about no one helping you with your motherin law. YOu deserve a day off once in awhile. Is there no provider service where you live who could send in a lady to help you for a few hours a week? In this state it is called the advantage program. I don't know what it would be where you are at. Take care of yourself. I hope your fountain brings you some peace. It sounds lovely. I like the sound of running water. Have a great day today. Hugs

BBDOLL on 05/24/2001:
Soup is good food! Since you asked me, lime chips are made by Tostitos, they are regular nacho chips that have a dusting of lime flavor. They are a heavenly thing, but a diet wrecker. Good luck on your mission. I would kill a hundred men to weigh what you do.


pinkus on 05/24/2001:
Hi Judy, We aren't doing much this weekend either. My son is playing in a soccer tournament, which will take some time, but frankly we are looking forward to having not much to do. Might take the kids to a movie. We'll see. Soup sounds so good--you're not putting a lot of salt in it are you? Take care of yourself. Your bp concerns me. Pam


Kyrin on 05/24/2001:
A waterfall sounds nice and cooling for the summer! Are you guys still suffering in those 100 degree temps?

Can't wait to see the scale drop down another pound for you. Way to go, Pasta!


kreativit_E on 05/24/2001:
*S* Yeah you were right...*S* means smile. *S* I just have to say that I love to read your entries, you are definately one of my faves on here. <p> Oh and I know how it feels about the HOT. *S* Although luckily we dont have to deal with the blackouts. *L* People are nuts to live in the desert. Oh well, Im nuts I guess.*S* <p> I must say your soups sound absolutely delish, makes me want to run over there with my spoon and try a lil.


kscmeg on 05/24/2001:
Hi! Ive missed a few of your entries---jsut getting back on track right now. The soup is a good idea, and it fills you up! I WOULD KILL TO WEIGH WHAT YOU DO!!!!! Keep up the good work!

Once again you win that award for being the most precious friend and constant commenter just when we most need it. I see the content of the comments that you unfailingly send my way, sharing your own personal experiences, encouraging me. Thank you, Judy.....so much. So much. Again I am feeling concerned about your bp. I don't know if you are being seriously monitored for this condition or are on meds, or need those adjusted during the summer months??? Tell us about that, okay? And, keep putting a litte ice down the front of your shirt, Sweetie. Or, this evening, ask hubby to do it!!! Connie :)


mommyof two on 05/25/2001:

Good morning everyone,,well another warm day here today,,tho i don't think it is going to be quite as hot as yesterday or day before,,and thank goodness we didn't have any blackouts while it was 103 here,,,,Herb you asked how my mother in law does with this heat,,,,well i do keep the ac going ,,have to with her here,,and then i have a ceiling fan in her room and another fan going sometimes,,,cause with her being bedridden full time,,she needs plenty of air circulating around her,,tho with having to keep her turned and proped with pillows,she does sweat a certain amount and then i have to worry about blisters on her skin here and there,so a constant fight in the summer time.:{

I had a terrible day yesterday,it was one of those days i have not had in a very long time,,,i am sure some of you have experienced before,,where you just get so overwhelmed and your emotions are beyond your control,,,well i spent alot of my day crying and not sure why,,,just was very sad and everything upset me:{{ but the good news is today is better,,i feel normal today,,i know my blood pressure was high,,,the home health nurse took it while she was here and was very concerned,,,it was,,,,184/98,,,,,but it is ok this morning,,,i think the heat had alot to do with it and my being tired from the three days away,any time i lose my sleep of any amount it seems to effect my blood pressure,,,but today it is back ok and i feel good this morning,,,,oh and no KIDS this morning,,,,,,yeahhhhhh!!! lol,,,,but i do have them late this afternoon and keeping them over night with me,:}

Well i made my soup and have been eating it for the last couple days and i feel better weight wise to,,,i think soup is the way to go,,at least for me,when i eat soup i am full longer,,,,and doesn't take much of it to fill me up and i seem to lose better,,,so after this pot is gone i have stuff to make a pot of vegetable beef soup,,,and going to do that for the next few weeks and see if i can lose this last 10 lbs or so before the reunion coming up:}I have a pic of me and hubby with my roses,,,going to send it to levi and see if he will put it on the picture site,,,its not a great shot,,,but its us;}

pushedtothewall on 05/23/2001:
I felt bad about you feeling bad yesterday, Judy. I had you in mind on and off during the day and I was "wishing" relief for you. Sometimes there are just too many things pulling.... outside and inside. I am glad that you feel somewhat better today and have at least a few hours of this day to yourself. You have lots of responsibility there and it must be difficult more than you even share here. I think so much of you and the remarkably sweet attitude that you seem to push forth from within. I am so glad to know that your husband is supportive of you and grateful for your presence in his life. Take care of yourself whenever you CAN. That bp is way out of whack, as you well know. Be a good nurse to yourself also, okay? Your friend, Connie


sparkymel on 05/23/2001:
That is just too hot! I hate it when I have days like that. It will get better. I guess that's just part of being human. We all have our bad days. I hope it gets better for you. Have a great day and here's something that should make you smile-Just think about how you felt this time last year....You've lost alot of weight since then and achieved your goals. So be proud and happy for that. Have a great day!-Melissa


mommyof two on 05/23/2001:
i,m sorry that you wernt feeling up to par yesterday, but i,m glad to hear that your blood presser is back down.. you need to watch that. i wouldnt want anything to happen to my friend!!!!get you some extra rest sence you dont have the kids...take care, lisa


Rader on 05/23/2001:
Your homemade soup looks good, and is low on the WW123 points!

To answer your question, I eat Healthy Choice soups. I started with Campbell's, but then moved to Healthy Choice because of the Sodium. Of course it's kind of rediculous because I add a lot of hot sauce (no calories, but lots of sodium) Oh well, I'm not working on my blood pressure right now, just my weight. Anyway, I like all of Healthy Choices soups, except I don't touch the Split Pea soup one (never had it, don't want to), and the Bean & Ham is a little too heavy for me. Luckily those 2 are the highest in calories, so I don't feel like I'm missing anything.

Some people have suggested I make my own home made soup, but no way. I'd have a heck of a time figuring out the calories, and I don't really want to spend too much time on this diet. I'd rather go out walking than cooking for the diet. Usually when I went to great lengths in the past diets, I'd burn out. So I'm keeping it simple for now.

If I ever get bored with those soups, I'll move on over to Progresso or something. But it hasn't happened yet.

By the way, It's really weird. How come people on this web site ask me what I eat, when in fact I post a food link in every diary entry? I don't know how to make it more obvious??

Keep up the good work. You sure have helped a lot of people on here


DVDMon on 05/23/2001:
Judy, sorry you weren't feeling well! I'm glad you're feeling better now. Of course you can send me another picture! As far as meds, I'm not totally against all medications, however in this case I believe that most of the medical community has pulled the wool over its own eyes. Cholesterol has been shown to not be that great a predictor of heart disease. I'm going to be posting a bunch of links to articles and studies regarding this in my diary tonight. I will not risk taking powerful drugs on something that has such significant holes in its theories. I'm glad your numbers are down, but although I would love to have good numbers, to a certain extent I feel this is just an abstraction and only latched onto by many in the scientific field because it is a quantifiable thing and there is nothing else that can measure chd risk in such an exact way. Sure you have blood pressure, whether you smoke, how overweight you are, etc. But these are not as quantifiable. At least just recently they have developed mri or ultrasound technology which is actually capable of measure plaque in arteries, but there are few of these in the country and I fear the test is both expensive and not covered by most insurance companies. I will be trying to persuade my doctor at least to get a test done for me that determines the ldl particles - whether they are primarily good or bad.


Soon2BThin on 05/23/2001:
Glad to see your feeling better, Pasta. Guess we all have days like that. Hope you don't have any like that for a long time. Wow, your blood pressure was a scare, huh? Good that it's back down now. Have a great day.


lauren on 05/23/2001:
Thank you for the welcome back!! I can't tell you how exciting it was to see how far you have come in your weight loss. That gives me hope that maybe I can actually reach my goal! Congratulations!


herb on 05/23/2001:
Is there something going on that you're not talking about. If you don't want to tell us thats OK. It just, well you know, we worry about each other.


pinkus on 05/23/2001:
Being overwhelmed is really hard and you do have alot on your hands with the kids to take care of so often. You are a dear to do it, but I wonder if you get enough down time. Glad your soup feels so nurturing. Take care Pam


garlic on 05/23/2001:
I know that dealing with kids can be very stressful. Do you think you are spending too much time babysitting? Maybe you need more time to yourself. Just a thought.


Rachel_MR on 05/23/2001:
Glad to hear your back on you r feet today. I had one of those days yesterday aswell, but have picked myself up again today. I find that it makes you feel excellent when you have a brilliant day after a bad one, it reminds me of the difference I feel emotionally and physically. So keep smiling and take care.

Hey hun, just wanted to share with you your bp is probably very much due to the heat. We see alot of concern with people who monitor their BP in the hot weather and it's really a consideration, right along with hydration. Stay hydrated, stay cool and keep an eye on it, but don't stress it. k? =0)


pushedtothewall on 05/22/2001:
Oh boy! You are talkin' about some major heat! I certainly hope, also, that there are no blackout situations down there. You be sure, Judy, to pace yourself and keep the bp in mind. Be watchful. I hope that your pound holds....how nice :) I'll be checking in on you tomorrow. It was odd and "off" somehow when you were missing here. You are so reliable a source of support and inspiration. Have as good a day as you can pull out of the bag. I will check with you tomorrow. Connie

Hi Pastagal:

I'm so glad to read that you had a wonderful mini vacation. I didn't realize that you were back already because I didn't check DD for a couple of days due to "other" stuff going on at the office. Anyway, you seem in great spirits and that's nice to hear. The roses are a wonderful gesture on hubby's part. I bet they are beautiful. You guys are a year ahead of me and my hubby. We'll celebrate 28 years in August. Have a great diet day today and I'll be in touch...
