    Kind of down in the dumps lately. I hate a bag of Doritoes just because when I'm down in the dumps why not make myself down further. LOL sigh............

    ((((((((Tweety))))))))))))) Sorry you are down, anything we can do to help chipper you up? (I'm horrible at joke telling, so I will spare you the pain of that.)

    Hey Zoe, hours on end talking with a friend sound wonderful!

    I am so excited! I weighed myself today for this week and I have lost 5 lbs. since last Tuesday - WooHoo!!! I think I am on the right track again, so yeay!!! Now to just keep it up. It is really nice out though and that motivates me to be outside playing with my kids, so that should keep me in "good mode" - hehe.

    Hi everybody, wishing you all mental and physical health today.

    Thanks Zoe. No Sarah, please don't cheer me up with jokes. Just slap me and say "snap out of it!".

    Was the "h" in front of ate intentional? Go to the gym, my friend and get that serotonin going that way instead of through CHO. I mean that in the nicest way (although I have been told I can be a tad bossy).

    Hi y'all just checking in, had a friend over for lunch (and the pre-requisite house cleaning beforehand!)
    That house cleaning is the worst part My brother and SIL came over the other day and both needed to use the bathroom--which was through the main floor and up the stairs in our room. As much as I love (and crave) order, it's not happening while I'm in school, and all I could think about was "It's only an hour trip, can't you just hold it until you get back home?"

    Sarah, classes are going and that's all that matters! Some students from second semester (out of four) meet in the classroom after we do and I looked at them and realized how fast it all goes. Probably because you're too busy to look at a clock, much less the calendar . Do you really think people from Colorado are a bit, ahem, cranky? It's funny; over the last couple of weeks, I've run into a good half dozen people from Colorado who have moved here. I gues there's a reason, hmmm?

    Guess what? I bought a bike today, got it fit and brought it home and realized I didn't know what the heck to do with it. The last time I rode a bike it had a sparkly green-yellow banana seat and pedal brakes. I spent several minutes in the driveway trying to balance, knowing that ultimately only jumping on and riding was going to get 'er done. But still not really wanting to do that, heh.

    I rode a little over a mile on what I had previously thought was a flat street, fell down twice (I'm OK as long as I don't have to get on the bike, stop, turn or get off), bunged up my knee a bit, but I made it home. My arms are killing me--maybe a little tension there? LOL But like the first time I ran, right in the middle of all my "I can't do this, this is too hard" was the little thought that this might be kind of fun once I get the hang of it.

    I'm proud of myself for trying and maybe next time I can make it home without bloodshed

    Ha ha hikernurse - snicker...

    Don't they always say "it's as easy as riding a bicycle" or some such nonsense?

    I had pretty much the same experience getting back on my bike, how embarassing to ride around the parking lot til I got the hang of it again!

    Hiker, it wasn't an intentional slip. LOL Have fun with the bike!

    Tweety - if that's all it takes to get you out of a funk, here you go.

    "SNAP OUT OF IT."
    There. Hope that does the trick. Let us know what else we can do for you, we all want to help!

    Sarah, just saw your post......been busy with my daddy lately.......people in Colorado are upset because it is so crowded. The cities didn't plan on the growth and you cannot crowd that many people together without their being some problems. I moved back to Oklahoma, where I am originally from, but moved to Kansas, Ok....or better known as Little Kansas....I hate giving my address out, people always think I am giving my state before my city.
    I have been staying in OKC with my Dad for the last few weeks and I really miss my home in the woods........

    Today's another day. I'm going to try to eat well. I have to stop off at the store to get something for a covered dish tomorrow. I should have planned better and could have made something healthy like pasta salad, but know I'll be too lazy after my 12-hour shift tonight.
