Good Morning!

Enjoying my first cup of coffee for the day. Ahhh.....nothing like it! Had an ok day on the golf course yesterday. Still haven't found my "game", and my score is horrible, but I managed to have some fun anyway. There were some slow groups holding up the whole course, but that often happens. Just part of the game. I'll be heading back to the course around 11 this morning. Still working on the mental side of not giving a rip how I play....just have fun!

Nic........hope your dinner at TXRoadhouse was yummy. I haven't been out to eat in so long that I won't know how to act if/when I go into a restaurant.

Jaz....you will do great at the discharge planning job. You will help so many people. I just hope it's not too stressful day after day.

Sorry the housing situation in Charleston did not pan out. It would be nice if you could find something just inland from St. Simon's and then you could possibly move back to the island in off season. You'll land on your feet girl....you always do!

Trig....do you have your next RV adventure planned? Like you, I'm ready for hot weather! I want to sweat!

-------

Well, I hear DH stirring around upstairs. That's the end of my quiet coffee time. Some mornings he is WAY talkative and I just glaze over.

Have good days!

Lori- was it cold there yesterday? We had a chilly day although it did get nicer as the day went on. I was wondering how your golf was going to go. Have fun playing today!

Did I miss a post from Jaz? I don't see anything about her comments on how house hunting was in Charleston? Jaz, did you remove it? I want to know how things went!

Thanks to all for the birthday wishes. My family has been very sweet about it. DD and SoIL came over yesterday morning with a beautiful tray of breakfast- LC pancakes, bacon, flowers. So sweet! Everyone did something to make my weekend special. I'm a lucky girl!

I was going to get an upgraded apple watch that has cellular but I haven't gone and gotten it yet. Still deciding.

Everyone else in my family will be playing pickleball today. My plans are poop scooping, menu planning, taking a bath and then we all go to the dinner theater tonight to see Shrek. Our first time to go in over a year!

Jaz- catch me up on what I missed!

Good Morning!

Nothing much doing on this Monday except a quick trip to the grocery store and a few other errands. Yesterday on the course was pretty much a bust. We ended up quitting 4 holes early because we had a group of idiots in front of us and then it started raining. We decided we didn't need to put up with that nonsense. I was going to play today with a friend, but we decided against it. It's chilly & damp this morning and we were going to play at 9:30....it'll still be too cold for this old chicken.

Jaz.....hope you had a good night's sleep after your trip to Charleston. I'm anxious to hear about possible new leads on housing where you are!

Nic & Trig.....what's up this week?

--------

I'm tightening up the eating for a few days to see if I can drop into a new "decade". I don't know why.....just something to focus on, I guess. I'll be doing Pahla B. workouts this week as we won't be hitting the golf course till next weekend. Gotta keep moving! I wish I could wrap my mind around getting back into running, but I'm just not there. Right now the Pahla workouts and golf seem to be enough. Once our mornings are warmer, I may get out running/walking again.....we'll see.

Time to pump in some more coffee and some water. I have a bit of a headache this morning that's probably a bit of dehydration.

Have a good one!

Nicco I hope your dinner theater was alot of fun.....give us a report

Lori, alot of slow people on the course lately for ya already? yes it would drive me slightly batty also LOL but that sure is a golf situation cause my hubby would moan about it too

New decade...that would be fab! Go for it.

Funny on your running, something you SO enjoyed yet you aren't sure if ya wanna go back to it now? Maybe your exercise videos are giving you enough of what you need and feel like running isn't a requirement as much? interesting tho to see how you might change it up later.

Jazz, you home? Give a new report, I guess you are checking your local area again for apts/rental units etc? I think you said you have a line on something? Let us know


-----------today is hit grocery and bank
home to do a little of this and that
chilly outside with next days dropping into lows of like 30? come on now HAHA SO CLOSE we all are LOL

eating is great. zc all the way. I cut out all my 'a spoonful of this or a taste of that' that I did on vacation. I feel a difference, feel so much more vibrant with tight zc eating.

got a steak today
pair with ?? not sure but I got a crab hankering...might just buy me a bad today and have at it when I hit the store, we shall see cause as much as I have a hankering, I also feel not that hungry at all so? play by ear

all good, doing my thing fine day to all

Jaz- looking forward to your new leads!

Lori- Sorry you had a frustrating golf day yesterday. I would expect that who your group gets behind would play a part in dictating how it all goes. How were the women around each other? Is this the group that had the fall out?

Trig- Glad you are on plan and doing well. Sounds like several of us hit the grocery store today!

Not much doing around here. Hit the store for the week- tonight is chicken enchiladas using LC tortillas. I try to just have one and leave it at that as overall I don't like using those kinds of items. Other than that I have planned homemade meatballs and sauce (pasta for the men), tacos (taco salad for me) and burgers. A very beef heavy week for some reason.

Speaking of beef, I'm going to whip up a beef vegetable soup to have on hand for me this week, for lunches and so forth. Tip- one of my favorite things to put in a beef veg soup is the core and stalks of cauliflower, cut up. They are great potato dupes in a soup. I will put that in there, along with some green beans, okra, diced tomato and beef broth. YUM all week.

Tonight is a call with the financial advisor, then tomorrow is podiatrist and in the evening a visit with my CASA kids, whom I have not seen in over a year! We're doing an outside visit. They will not even be the same kids I knew. Their adoption should be completed in the next couple of months and my case will be completely closed.

Hugs!

Nic....your veg soup sounds so good! Good tip on the stalks of the cauli etc.

I don't golf with the "hens" on the weekends. They were there and I waved at them, but that was the extent of it. When I would run into them would be on Tuesday and Thursday mornings when they get together to play. I'm not sure that I'll be joining them at all on Tues/Thurs this year. Too much drama. Tomorrow I'm playing with 2 of my friends at 11:30. We're playing later as I have an appt. for a mammo at 8 and my other friend has an appt at 10 in another town.

Quiet day around here. I made a trip to the grocery store this morning and then made a nice dinner(pork chops) for DH tonight. I had one of my Freshly meals.

Can't believe it's 7 o'clock already! Almost my bedtime!

Good Morning Ladies!

TRIG- OMG on the car- mine is SO SO SO gross!!!! It is a thick grimy yellow. I have put off washing it because the pollen will hit it right out of the wash. But it is almost now embarrassing. I might need to take it through a few times to get all the bugs and pollen off!

Awesome on the steak- sounds so good!
Did you enjoy your trip? You didn't talk alot about it?

Lori- I most likely beat you to bed yesterday. I think I was in bed by 8. Crashed tired!

Sorry to hear that your ladies golf group blew up! But truly nobody wants to place with a bunch of hens that squawk - nobody!
Glad to know you are loving your videos though. They seem to have hit the spot for you!

NIC-- Wow time flies! Has it really been a year since you have seen your CASA babies????? Dang they will hit college before you know it!

I am all about making a big pot of soup and eating on it all week!
I like cauliflower too. I am now wondering if you could make a really yummy "Potato" soup? I bet there is a recipe somewhere. I bet it would be Devine too!!!!!!! Toss in some crab- oh yea.... now we are talking!
-----------------------------------------------------
I was so so so tired yesterday after work. I hit the pool by 430 and I had the pool to myself. I didn't feel guilty by sticking my floaty in- it was wonderful. I let the sun hit my face. I slept so good last night

I have really been stressed over this next move more than any other move. I want to place to park for awhile and I want it near the beach and I need it affordable. I also want it no more than 6 hours from the kids- yada yada.........

So I found where I am going. Pooler GA. It is perfect! It's 15 minutes from downtown Savannah, 30 minutes from both Tybee Beach/ or Hilton Head. It is also listed as one of the safest and fastest growing mid size cities in Ga. It has all the shopping and places I need and want. Thirty minutes from a beach- 4 hours from the kids and still in GA. I LOVE IT.

I also have a place picked out. I am not a fan of apt living, but if I have to do an apt. I want it to be an upscale luxury one. I found one that was just built last year- 300.00 under my budget!!!! I have a call into them this morning.
I will visit this upcoming weekend. I will have a place within 2 weeks. I feel really good about it.

Boy you ladies have been on the tour with me!!!!!!! From Greenville, to Delaware to where I am and all the places in-between!!!!

I am on the LC train with you all- I would love to also hit a new "decade". Something about dipping into a new number is exciting! I can't wait to hit under 200. I hate hovering!

Ok gotta grab coffee and plug in and serve the "man".

Good Morning!

Trig.....yes, Gabby & I went to bed shortly after 9 last night, as usual. She woke up earlier than usual this morning....we rolled out at 3:15.

Jaz.....glad you have found a place to land for a bit! I've never heard of that city, but it sounds like a perfect location and the right price. Score!

Nic....how are the feet/ankles doing? Hope you're having no more tendon issues.

Blue.....

--------------

I had a follow up appt for a mammogram at 8 this morning. During my regular mammo last fall, the radiologist saw an area that he didn't think looked right. They had me come back the following week and there was nothing conclusive. They scheduled me to come back in 6 months instead of waiting for a year, which is what the appt was for today. Only had to have 1 of them squished and then wait for them to read it. Good news.....he couldn't even see the "area" that he had concerns about last fall. All is good. Whew!

Now I'm home and will have an early lunch and then head to the golf course to play with my regular partner and another friend of ours. Looking forward to it.

DH will have to dig something up for dinner tonight since I won't get home till 4:30 or 5. He said "No worries", he won't starve.

Have a day!
