It has been a wet one here! We need the rain so I shouldn't complain but it makes it so grey and dreary. :confused:

And I was bored, bored, bored at work - the rest of the office went off to a conference and left me to mind the store. I could have gone to the conference but as it's my first weekend home since the trip, DH wanted to actually see me for more than a few minutes! :hug2:

Mind you that won't stop DH and DS going to their anime club tomorrow. Ah well. :p

Cleaning the house before we pick the boy up from his school trip tonight - it has been a very long week for me! Then we are going to order pizza for tea as it is his favourite thing and hopefully get something out of him about his adventures from the last week. :lol:

We most certainly will not. :rolleyes008: You go ahead and indulge yourself, it'll do you good. :hug2:

I said to a friend earlier this week - everyone is entitled to a pity party now and again so you indulge yourself. :D

Anyway, I appear to have just woken up after sitting down with the dog 2 hours ago. :7:

At least you didn't do that at 2.30 this afternoon which is what i am always terrified of doing :shocked025:

Sometimes I set the alarm for 2.30pm just in case of that happening. :lol:

It's a gloomy start to a Friday here. We've had some really violent weather and much rain, so some areas are flooded again. I have to go to New Jersey and North Carolina next week so this weekend with be a flurry of getting things ready.

I wanted to go to Ponce Lighthouse. :sigh; I don't think there will be the time though.

Doing well on the diet! Can't complain about that. Have lost 48 pounds and counting. Numbers are all good too, except I actually have low cholesterol! :lol: Doc said to add a few nuts or a piece of cheese to my daily mix, so I do that now from time to time.

I finally feel as though I've lost something too. No real comments from others, but Doc said that's because I wear my clothes too big. :D Told me to go buy new clothes. I hate shopping so that's not going to happen! :lol:

I hope we see some sunshine today. It's been a long week and I'll need something cheery to get through this day (that is starting out with my two colleagues being at this point, 30 minutes late)! :(

I went to a teddy bear's picnic yesterday.

If you go out in the woods today
You're sure of a big surprise.
If you go out in the woods today
You'd better go in disguise.

For every bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain, because
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

Chorus:
Picnic time for teddy bears,
The little teddy bears are having a lovely time today.
Watch them, catch them unawares,
And see them picnic on their holiday.
See them gaily dance about.
They love to play and shout.
And never have any cares.
At six o'clock their mommies and daddies
Will take them home to bed
Because they're tired little teddy bears. If you go out in the woods today,
You'd better not go alone.
It's lovely out in the woods today,
But safer to stay at home.

For every bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain, because
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic

TO CHORUS

Every teddy bear, that's been good
Is sure of a treat today
There's lots of wonderful things to eat
And wonderful games to play

Beneath the trees, where nobody sees
They'll hide and seek as long as they please
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic

TO CHORUS

Today I have an Echo Cardiogram and a stress test scheduled. I'm trying to get into an exercise program here at work and the Dr. won't sign off on it until he sees these results.

Tink, congratulations on the weight loss. I'm down almost 40 pounds myself and have another 40-50 and possibly even 60 to go.

Dawn
10-10-2008, 01:31 PM
Well done Tink and John on all that weight loss. :207:

Jon and I are sneaking away for a bit of leaf peeping early tomorrow morning...not sure where we're going, but from the looks of the foliage here we won't have to go far...I think we'll just start driving and see where the road takes us...

At work today...it's always hard to come back to work after a day off midweek...I always feel discombobulated...we have Monday off as well which is when I'll catch up on my laundry and housekeeping from the holiday....

Supposed to be brilliant weather this weekend...sunshine, mid seventies....I can't wait to be outdoors :D

BevW
10-10-2008, 02:53 PM
FIRST...congrates on all the weight loss going on here! That's so cool!!!
Um...no teddy bear picnics here, but we're having a Fisher Price Zoo day in the basement. I'm collecting tickets according to Bria.
It's raining and cold here so NO outside play.
Oh and I applied for a job yesterday...I don't know if I'll be excited or bummed if I get it.

Much more interesting than my luncheon meeting! I'm envious! :D



Today mostly i shall be eating comfort foods. Somebody slap me and tell me to stop feeling sorry for myself. It's alright i will do the first one.:slap:

Tut! No slapping allowed today! You need a serious pity party--at least through the weekend. We'll re-evaluate the situation on Monday! :hug2:

Congratulations on the weight loss, Tink! Have to agree with you on the shopping. :lol:


John, congratulations on your weight loss, too!

Looks like I'm really going to have to step it up. Don't see it happening, though. Too much going on and not enough hours in the day for everything. :sigh;

On a positive note, temperatures are supposed to cool off into the 70s for the weekend, then begin climbing into the low to mid-90s over the next week. Possible--not probably, though--rain on Saturday. Depends on what Norbert does.

Bev, that jet stream that's affecting your weather in dippin down here for a visit this weekend. I may have to break out a sweatshirt for my morning walks! :lol:

Shhhhh don't tell anyone...I applied at the Disney Store.
Rick and I were there yesterday and I asked one of the CMs if they were now officially DISNEY again or were they still Childrens place...and she said they'd been Disney Store Disney since May. Cool! Can I have an application? And she handed it to me and said "Fill it out and bring it back when you're done"
I mentioned to another CM that I used to work for Disney, and she goes "Here, let me clean off a space on the counter and you can fill this out right now!" LOLOLOL As we were leaving, she asked me to hold on cos they were trying to get a date and time for an interview. Wish me luck. I go in on Monday for the interview.

Well our little family is going camping this weekend. This will be Katelyn's first time. We usually camp in the fall, I don't know why, but the weather is going to be super nice. It was warm and beautiful 8 years ago when Dh and I got married. Our anniversary is next week :p015: So we will see how our little Katelyn does in the woods. If it doesn't go so well then we will be home Sunday, and if not then Monday I think. Dh has the next 2 weeks off, so we have some extra time.

Tink
10-10-2008, 08:08 PM
