Still getting my bearings after being on vacation and trying to get over this darn bronchitis

Nabbie - I was pretty freaked out by the Costa accident but felt that the DCL crew was VERY safety conscious!

Will try to post some vacation pics in the next couple days.

Took me a while to get caught up on my Biggest Loser viewing. I'm really not feeling it for the contestants yet this season! Not liking the drama. The trainers certainly are competetive this time though.

Moo-- at least we had our cruise before , if we were still getting on the ship it would be weird I just keep thinking them sitting down to dinner like we did and it happen. Yes they do drills all the time, I think this was all about the Captain.

It is so cold out today. I wish it would just stay one temp. instead of going way up then way down in a day. It makes the cold days seem worse. It was raining and very windy last night I thought the house would have blown away. This morning everything that was blown over is frozen to the side walk. Brrrr.

Off to take Hannah to the dentist the an Alter servering meeting after dinner. Busy night.

morning..
I play spider solitaire while it decides if it will connect to the sites or not...still slow today ..wonder if it had anything to do with the blackouts yesterday in the US..
Today is COLD..3 degrees and still ...at least the winds died down...yesterday with the wind chill...FORGET going out...we stayed put and put the thermostat up and put more clothes on...I really really liked my old house cause it was so nice and toasty all the time...

I am trying so hard to be good in my eating again...I tested 100 this morning which is FANTABULOUS>...I was so happy...of course I had to go to bed at 9:15 cause I was still hungry...so I ate a few cheese its and went to bed...watched tv...

there is a post on this board about dog beds...AND yah we bought a doggie bed for Megara....and she likes our bed better...we didnt plan on this but she was sick and we wanted to make sure she was okey so we took her to bed with us...like 7 years ago...and she has been with us since..she sleeps on the couch during the day or the big chair upstairs...we put those small type blankets on it for her...cause a Dalmatian sheds year round...those little bitty white wires they call dog hair...

I tried on my bathing suit and I am so excited...My cup didnt runeth over...so it fits...hey I wore it in Disney and that was it last year...didnt want to shell out another 60 bucks for a new one...this one I got at JC Pennys and it has belly control...gotta love something that helps me keep my gutt in...my one big problem is that area...

Had my doctors appointment and I do believe she thinks I am crazy...or nuts maybe...I talk like I do to you ..I talked that way to her...Like my cup didnt runeth over in my bathing suit...and stuff like that...have to go for blood work on Saturday morning..cause it is a 12 hour fasting...I will starve to death before that comes up..

I almost posted on the old thread this morning.

Tired I guess, thank goodness it is Friday I can sleep in tomorrow.

We had a minin snow storm yesterday. Really blowing and had even shovel snow this time. Says it is -14 C out there right now so brrrr. Hannah made me laugh because she said they made them go out for recess yesterday in the blowing snow. I told her it wasn't rain and that she got spoiled with the mild winter. They always go out unless it is -22 C or raining.

Hubby and I are going to go watch The Girl With The Dragon Tatto this morning. I have been waiting for it to show during the day so I can go while the kids are at school. It has been out for awhile so I don't want to miss it. I read all three books and really like them. Saw the Swedish version with subtitles but they say this one is better.

Where is everyone hiding out these days? Must be busy or just plain hibernating I can understand that.....

Last night hubby and I went to Margaritas and I was so good...Only ate one half of my chicken chmmichunga and a little of the rice...BUT I did eat the salsa and chips while we waited...THIS morning I tested really good aGAIN...104...I think I am trying to be good and it is showing up on the blood testing..

We had a mini storm too last night...blowing and very light fluffy snow...no one could even try to make a snow man in this stuff...If Ava brings her snow pants then I will go out and try to push it aside with the shovel...Its not heavy so I am not worried..

It is sixteen F..and our schools dont go out unless it is above 15...anything lower and they are in...fifteen to twenty and they have just a few minutes outside...I think it is to clear their heads...HOPE SO...

Yesterday Ava was restless so she vacuumed for me upstairs and down...she loves to do that...HAHAHA...I of course do the sides and the unders..

have a good day peeps..I mean Moovers

GOOD MORNING... BRRRrrrrr someone turn the heat up please! (its been below zero windchill factors here - and Pumba, the school's here dont let kids outside if its below 32F - wimps I tell ya! Which makes it hard substituting, watching all those prettys...)

Moo I'm with you on the after-a-vacation cold... or crud. Hope you're feeling better, drinking lots of herbal tea here -

lol - DD calls me at store and tells me to get her some "Sleepy Time tea" (she gets so wound up at night she cant sleep) So I read her the ingredients, knowing full well its the non-caffeine, chamomille that is the main ingredient - some have mint (both spearmint and peppermint! ) some have lemon, some have passionfruit, or blackberry - its all about the label! So I found some "stress relief" tea - purported to have "kava" in it - Now I'm remembering a news magazine show that filmed a kava kava ritual, a nice relaxing herb - so she makes the tea, and wanted to sleep curled up on the chair!! That mind! (I'm saying if there was any kava in that tea, it would not be noticeable, but dd believed it, so it worked...)

NabI just have another reason not to go on a cruise! lol - I watch a lot of the morning shows, I wonder if he'll stick to the story "he fell off and into a lifeboat"! or was he drinking with a hot blond? lol, really?! I know captain's get to eat, and have that special table and all - but the carafe on the deck while going close to the rock? Someone said that they were watching the carafe of wine? I think Disney does have lots of drills, and thinks about safety - this cruise line hadnt had one yet - it was scheduled for the NEXT day! I keep thinking, you have to leave everything behind - your purse with your money, credit cards, documents... that gives me panic attacks!

well, my eyes are getting blurry, sneezing way too much right now....

Time for meds!

Pumba, our furbabies have a little round furbed from CVS $5.99 - it fits in their crates!! nighty night

WTG on the health!! wooHOO!!!! I'm on day 5, down 8 water pounds!! Wish it could be like Biggest Loser - double digits every week! (without the annoying sweating of course! LOL)

Sandy-- that was the whole problem they didn't sound the alarm early enough for people to prepare. Disney does do a good job. They actually tell you to go get your passports and meds. Put your heaviest clothes on etc. And of course your life jacket. If you can't get back to your room there is extra life jackets. This does not scare me from cruising.

Just got back from the show. Hubby said we should go to the morning shows more often. $6.00/person. Cost more for the soda and popcorn. The movie was really good. Very close to the book , some changes but there always is. Hope the Hungry Games is just as close and good. That one comes out the day before my birthday.

Yep, I have been hibernating and trying to get back into the swing of work. Ughhh! It has been so hard to concentrate at work while taking meds for my chest congestion, but I'm finally starting to feel better.

Cold, cold, cold here as well. SUCH a shock to the system after Florida/Bahamas weather!!! I went out after work tonight even though it was snowing and picked up a few groceries so I can just relax at home tomorrow while hubby is out spending time with his dad (his normal Saturday thing to do). I have been wanting to get into our hot tub since I've been home from vacations, but between all the wood smoke in the air at night, which really aggravates my breathing, and the cold, I haven't been able to manage it

I'm all caught up on my Biggest Loser episodes, but have a few other things DVRed that I can watch tomorrow. But I've mostly been finding new books to read on the Kindle (Christmas gift from my DD).

Moo yay on the Kindle - do you check out the freebies on www.ereaderiq.com?

I dont have time to go through the hundreds of freebies so my favorite is to go to the Amazon Discussion page - Happy Reader/Joyce posts the link to her favorite site and then all the posters come through and post their favorite finds!

http://www.amazon.com/forum/kindle/r...dAnchor=kindle

(look for FREE BOOKS - then today's date in the forum)

My other favorite link is to the discounted books!! I have gotten too many books! I LOVE IT!
http://www.amazon.com/forum/kindle/r...DiscussionsNew

so many books!!

I got dh a kindle touch for Christmas, DD has a kindle and a Fire - its awesome! I've gotten many many books early before the price goes up - lots of bestsellers! awesome!

Good Morning -

I get online, and NOW the dogs decide they need attention!

Pumba Glad everything went fast and painless!! Hope the results are just as positive!

and I got dh the $79 touch kindle, with ads - its not obtrusive at all - the ad only shows on the "sleep" page - once you turn it on, you dont see the ads! His touch took some getting used to - I like the buttons to turn the page better - but the screen for the books is the same size as my $139 Kindle!

I love love love my kindle - it fits in my purse, so I stop in for a bite to eat, or relax with a cup of tea, and I have my kindle. Waiting for dd - I have my kindle!

On the plane to Disney - KINDLE! (of course the airlines do NOT understand kindles so I have to turn it off - nope, just close the case, its not like internet until I turn it on!)

712 FREE Books today! lots of children's books, all kinds of genres

Tried getting back into reading trip reports. So far the 2 I've read have ended mid trip report with broken relationships. What a bummer.
