I did it again. Not sure how, but I lost an entire post. Okay, here we go again.

Hi Tracy
Sorry I haven't been around, I can't believe I haven't posted since Tuesday. This week has been busy at work even though a lot of people have been gone.

Tuesday we didn't get to walk due to thunder storms.
Wednesday we didn't get to walk as that is one of Gram's nights to come by for dinner.
I have made sure to walk at work, take the stairs and take the farthest route whenever possible. and I have tried to do some exercises at home.

Thursday we did get to walk but E could only stay for 45 minutes. She promised her DH she would be home by 8:00pm to get their youngest ready for bed. We are going to start meeting earlier so she can walk longer.
Thursday night, I was really tired so I went to bed early, before 9:30, which is unheard of for me these days.
In the early morning on Friday I woke up with a sinus headache. I got up and took something and then went back to bed. DH had to wake me up as I take the kids to school on my days off. I am happy to say I had them there on time.
I had a lot of errands to run on Friday and still had a bit of the headache, so when I got back home I laid down for a while. I went to bed early again on Friday when my friend called and said "I need you to pick out an American Girl for Aly". I'm like, "do I have to do it right now?" After asking me three times if I were sick, she finally told me no, I could pick out the doll on Saturday. Gee, thanks.

Saturday
E and I walked for just over an hour and did 4 miles. She couldn't stay any longer as she had to get home. I am beginning to worry that she isn't going to be ready for the marathon. We are going to have to figure out a way for her to stay longer so she can get more time in. I stayed and did another 1.5 miles. 5.5 miles is right where I wanted to be this weekend. At least I am on track with that. I was a little slow today, but I always am after a sinus headache.

At noon today was the first part of my class reunion. How many years you ask? 25 years. This is the fourth reunion we have had and with the aid of the internet today was the most people we have had come. I was only going to do the daytime event, as a lot of drama went into the planning of this thing and I it really turned me off. The usual people didn't plan this one and things kind of got out of hand this time. Several people ask me to come tonight, but I had other plans. So I went to the other thing (Jewelry party, shhhhh don't tell them. I told them it was a work thing. Which wasn't a lie since almost everyone there was from work) and then I went to the night time event. I saw several people I hadn't seen in 25 years. It was interesting. and I am glad I went and had a good time.

Now due to my headache being completely gone and having taken a nap this afternoon, I am wide awake. So, I DIS.....and think.....and plan.

Thanks Tracy.
Yes, I am feeling better. This was a short one and I am thinking now, it may have had a bit of stress thrown in. Sunday was a low key day, just doing stuff around the house and Gram came for dinner.

Monday
I went to work as usual and the weird thing as I was leaving the house my back started to hurt. In the car I felt worse and almost turned around and came home, but I figured I would start feeling better when I got to the office. I didn't and after the sixth person told me how bad I looked, I decided to go home. After five hours in bed, I felt better. Not sure what I did.

While I was lying in bed, I brought my laptop in with me and was able to get $20 of Subway cards.
In the mail I received my TGI Fridays cards, so that is another $30.

E wasn't able to walk on Monday, so I took Roo. We did two miles and I had to stop. I was beat. You would think after lying in bed so much I'd have plenty of energy.


Today (Tuesday) was much better. Well, we do have two confirmed cases of swine flu, but those two were on a trip last week and not in the office. and we know where it came from. One person got it from a kid at church and passed it on. I cleaned the office today and the car they drove last week got a Lysol cleaning also.

We walked tonight and as usual I got busy talking and lost track of how far we walked. E did almost an hour and I did 1 hour and 20 minutes. Good work out. I would have kept going, but DD was with me and ready to come home.

140 days until we go to Disney for the marathon weekend. I'm not sure if I'm or

Thanks Tracy
Today was a good day. DH had to go away for a couple days and will be back on Friday. Short trip. Work was good and no one else has gotten sick yet. I hope to keep it that way. They keep laughing at me when I bring out the Lysol. I don't want to get sick. I can do that well enough by myself. I definitly don't need any help.

Gram came for dinner tonight and then oldest DS came home early and hung out for a while. That's unusual. DD did homework and has already read another book and her reader. I explained it is one story a week not the whole thing in one week. Small reader and the stories are very simple.

I walked at work today and took the stairs and did a little extra exercise, but no track walking today. Typical day today, nothing new or exciting. Guess that is a good thing.

Lisa, don't get swine! During all my research on this thing, I saw several people say that nurses will put some Neosporin antibiotic ointment in their noses. I figure its worth a try!

You are right on track with your walking, good job! I am betting E will get some longer walks in as this thing gets closer. If not, well you are doing what you need to do and that is awesome.

I hope your headache is gone for good. I hate headaches. Weird about the back, you must have pulled something. And laying in bed wears me out more than anything else!

Hi Ladies
Today was a good day. Didn't start off that way, but has ended that way.
Since DH is on a trip, I have to get the kids to school. He normally drives them, but that would put me two hours late to work, but if they ride the bus, then I am only one hour late. Well, DD didn't want to ride. It's boring, it's too long, she hates it, etc, etc. I finally told her that if she didn't ride the bus then no Jon & Kate + 8 this afternoon. She got on the bus, but whined and cried right up until the driver opened the door.
I had to stop at the store on the way in, so I took a few extra minutes to just walk around and walk off the frustration. I don't feel right going in and taking it out on the guys.

Today was an easy day which was good. Got things done and hopefully tomorrow will be the same. Had a "Meet all the sports teams" at the high school tonight. They introduce all the kids on the various teams of the Jr High and High School and the band plays part of their Half Time show. DS is on the swim and soccer teams, so he had to go on the field twice. I thought it would be smart to take DD's homework for her to do while we waited for the program to start, but no She needs a table to do her writing on. But it was worth a shot.

Tomorrow DD is going to spend the night with April and her DD and DNiece. On Saturday they are going to the Alligator Farm to hatch alligator eggs. I know I told them to have fun and I'll look at the pictures later.

Also tomorrow DS is going on a lock in at the water park with the church. Seems several other youth groups will be there and they will be having a kind of Night of Praise.

Which means, DH and I get an evening to ourselves, if he gets home that is. He is on the West coast and sometimes has difficulties getting home on time. We'll go out to dinner and maybe a movie if he gets in on time.

Saturday, E and I are suppose to walk and I don't think we have anything else planned this weekend. I am going to clean house and grocery shop, but I say that every weekend. I do need to clean the garage as I am kind of planning to do a yard sale in October, so I need to start getting ready for it now. I hope to just rest and work on the computer for the rest of the weekend.

So, if I don't get on Tomorrow, you all have a great Friday.

Sounds like you have a nice weekend ahead of you, Lisa. Hope you and your DH are able to get a movie in and go out to dinner.

Thanks Tracy

Well, we did get dinner last night, but no movie. I looked them over and didn't even know what most of them were about. Plus, I was tired yesterday, not sure why other than I was up super late Thursday night.

Yesterday was another quiet day at work. Hardly anyone there which is a good thing, means I can get work done. Rained like the dickens in the afternoon. DD got off with April for their weekend adventure. She was just suppose to spend one night, but April asked for enough clothes for the whole weekend, in case DD wanted to stay. DS didn't go on his youth trip. They were going to a water park and it was suppose to storm all evening. There aren't any buildings there for them to have their meetings and all in so I figured it would be cancelled. He went to the football game instead to work with the fire department.
I went off to Slidell to meet DH who I knew was already running late. I had errands to do, so it wasn't a problem. He finally got into New Orleans at 7:50 an hour and half late. We ended up at Olive Garden at 9:00. I like eating late there. No wait for a table, the wait staff was on the ball, didn't have to wait long for food and it wasn't crowded. We had a very nice dinner. DS called to say he was home and the game had ended early and please bring home some bread sticks.

Today E and I walked earlier. E stayed for 1 hour and 20 minutes. She did good today, I was very proud of her. As usual I lost track of how far we walked, happens when I am talking. I am estimating between 3.5-4 miles. We were kind of slow today. After E left I stayed and did another two miles. I was tired, but very happy. And not as tired as last week. Almost 1/2 way there.

My goal is to be doing 14 miles by the first Saturday of December. I have been at this since the beginning of March and it is finally getting easier to add distance. I just have to keep reminding myself to just focus on endurance. Endurance will bring speed. I am not looking to be speedy Gonzalos, just able to maintain a 15 minute mile for the entire distance.

Oh, today was a good mail day. I received four $25 Disney gift cards for the annual pass discounts cards I gave out. Was looking for 4 more, but I don't know for sure if those cards were used. I also received my two Subway cards from Coke Rewards. Plus some CVS coupons.

Hope everyone has a great Saturday.

Spent the rest of yesterday at home, cleaning (didn't get much done though) and taking care of other stuff. Last night DD stayed a second night with April so DH and I took DS out for dinner (subway) and then went by Home Depot. DD wants her room redone in ICarly. Can't find much other than bedding. I am looking for a new lamp preferably one with a night light in it. Didn't find one in our HD, so we went to Lowe's in Slidell. Didn't find one there, so we went across the street to another HD. Didn't find one there so we went to the big one across town. Not there either. Went by Bed, Bath and Beyond and Pier 1. Nope, nothing. So we went to Target and got the bedding and a night light that plugs in. They did have a lamp that would match the bedding, but she never used her lamp other than for a night light, so...... maybe no lamp.

I gave all the Princess stuff to April for her DD. Chloee looked at it all and goes "But I want a dinosaur room." Before I left she had pulled out all of her dinosaurs and put them around her room like decorations. Hmmmmmm, wonder who is going to win that battle.

Yesterday's food was good. Haven't posted that in a while.
Breakfast - cereal (late)
No lunch and I can't remember a snack
Dinner - 6inch turkey subway, couple chips and 1/3 DS' cookie
Snack - cereal

Today's food
Breakfast - cereal
Lunch - left over lazagne (?)
Dinner - 2 slices pizza

No exercise today. I was too tired. Got up a 4:45am after going to bed at 12:30am. Why? Glad you asked.

We are going to the WORLD!!!!!
In 90 days!!!!!!


Check out my new rotating banner. Isn't it cool. My friend Mary (Maroo) helped me do it.

When we returned from our trip in June one of the first things April said to me was, "David (her DH) felt so bad about Chloee (her DD) being sad while y'all were all gone that he said we could go with you for Thanksgiving."
(We had decided that our Thanksgiving tradition to go to WDW)
What she didn't know was on our way home we had discussed maybe not going back this year. DH thought 3 times in one year might be too much. I told April I didn't know if we were going, so she asked if I would at least help them plan their trip.
Me, help plan???? I would love too. Help other people at work all the time.

After much thought and prayer and working up a spread sheet, I thought it might be doable. We had a big discussion about it and DH just doesn't want to have to sacrifice for the trip. So, we compromised. I'll be real careful with my spending and we will stay at a Value, but yet do Deluxe Dining. The Free Dining that came out helped a lot. I have been working very hard on the various web sites and with my yearly award from work and a couple other things, we'll be able to swing it. At least things are looking promising right now.

So we have reservations and today I made all of our dining reservations. Which is why I was up at 4:45am my time. I wasn't sure what time the automated system rebooted. Today it rebooted at 6:00am Eastern Time, 5:00am my time. The system works, but was real slow and some of the restaruants I couldn't reserve. I wasted a lot of time trying to get TRex, LeCellier and Biergarten. Those three woud not come up, kept telling me there were too many people in the system. But I got CRT with no problem and most everything else exactly when I wanted it. Just a couple I had to modify times on a little. The CM (Troy) who helped me with the rest was great. He got me Le Cellier and Beirgarten right when I wanted them and tried for TRex, but it just wasn't happening. I finally got TRex later today, but had to go for an off time. I am going to keep trying to change that one to a more reasonable time though. I'm excited. Can you tell? I was really bummed that we might not go and then get back into our slump.

Oh, got the girls at BBB also and I found out that one of DD's friends from PreK will be there the same week, so I scheduled her for the same time. We are going to try to get together a couple of times so the girls can spend a little time together. They live a bit from us and the girls go to different schools now. Interesting though is DD's friend goes to the school that April teaches at.
Seems I have started a trip report doesn't it. Sorry. I am just so excited. 90 days.......wow.
