    (Quoted from other thread.)

    Following orders also....

    I'm 90% sure that this is caused by stress; maybe a weebit of a virus too. My DH had a little stomach bug on Friday and Saturday and I do too now, but it didn't kick in until I was getting ready to leave, so the timing is a little suspicious!

    Tornado watch? Yuck. Yes, thanks to the NYC Office of Emergency Management, I am well informed that hurricane season starts next month. :scared1: They are "celebrating" (THEIR term - DEFINITELY NOT MINE) "Hurricane Awareness Month" (Who knew? :confused3). Apparently, this "celebration" entails numerous banner ads and other public service announcements. I keep getting bright colored banner ads on my computer saying things (in all CAPS) like "Are you in an evacuation zone?" and "Are your bags packed"...:sad2: I was sick of them by May 2nd. :lmao: I'm nervous about this hurricane season. It will be my first one on the Gulf Coast. :scared:

    Ahem...it's Monday, right? Why no red beans?
    WFD - French dips and (baked) French fries

    June 30...4:30pm....arrive at MSY!

    Hello...just checking in.

    Ann -- I'm glad Luke slept for you. Get some rest today and feel better. You definitely could have new allergies...pregnancy does some weird things.

    Nancy -- I hope you are enjoying your snuggle time with Kady. The thought of Nola scooting all over the place makes me smile.

    Ellen -- Like Ann said, men always seem to lose weight quicker, but after the initial drop, it takes longer to work off the rest.

    I lost all my multiquotes when I came here from the new thread, and I can't remember what else I was going to say.

    My parents are taking Liam to dinner and to his baseball game while Caili is at skating. I am not sure what Caili and I are doing for food. We have to go right from the rink to the field, so it will be some kind of takeout. You may here that word a lot here this week.

    Thanks for the link Kat!

    Ellen- it is not fair! Buddy can lose his extra pounds in a heartbeat...I go without good stuff for a year! Hang in there and the weight will come off.

    Laura- Daniel used to manage two Subway stores and he was slammed from now until the end of the school year. Between all the end of school activities and the sports it seems dinner is on the run

    Maria - I don't know how I missed your request for prayers for your mother, but I did. I will begin today though. And your Mother's Day plans sound wonderful btw.

    Bethany - Thank you for your public service announcement. I'll make sure to throw the mickey ice cream wrapper away before I can even sneek a peek.

    Marisa - I'd love to get a shocolate mickey krispie for Kady. PM me with your address.

    Vickie - Glad to know you weren't playing. I was more than a little concerned when I thought you were a participant and not a spectator.

    Aimee - Enjoy your Mom today. :hug: Is she going to be working on Mother's Day? I'll be there then. Do you want to try and work up a suprise for her?

    Nancy - Those little buggers are fast in those walkers. I know. My nephew had the greatest time in my parents house on their hardwood floors. Now my mother's poor dog being chased by said nephew did NOT have such a fabulous time. And thanks for the countertop input. Like you, that is someplace I don't want to blow my budget. I figure whatever I get will be better than what I have now.

    Ann - I can't believe you are so close either. Time is certainly flying.

    Kat - Thanks for moving us before we got shut down. :thumbsup2

    Ellen - I agree with Ann. It's a man thing. My husband lost 5 pounds in one week simply by eating only one cinnamon biscuit (with his frisco breakfast sandwich) instead of two. :sad2: Am I jealous? You betcha!

    Janice - Yoooouuuuu Hooooooo. Details woman. How did the date go?

    Laura - Don't worry about keeping up. Just try to keep your head above water with your children this week.

    I know I've missed someone and I'm sorry. But unlike Ann and Bethany, I can't figure out how to quote from the prior thread and my memory isn't great either. So forgive me if I missed you.

    Tonight's dinner is going to be something with the italian sausage I pulled out of the freezer. No idea what just yet.

    Thanks! I am up to 52 pounds and have been here for a while. I am not losing more right now (also not eating the greatest) but I am not gaining. I seem to be staying the same weight but everything seems to be "shifting" around.

    Marisa won't tell you but she has been working out and has trimmed so much it is amazing! Buddy and I are so proud of her. When we went to Disney for Kady's birthday she was very tired and had a difficult time with all of the walking. FF to last December and what a difference! Her energy level adn her stamina was tremendous. It was clear that she not only looked different, she felt so much better!

    My DDIL Erica has lost 45 pounds.

    ok, checking in here too! Thanks Kathy for keeping us together and on the same page.

    Marisa--wow on the weight loss! That's awesome!

    Kathy--I can't believe hurricane season is almost here again. Seems like Ike was just here.

    Okay, need to get my kids down for a nap

    Marissa- That's great, it must have made Disney so much more fun. When I look at a 20 pound bag of dogfood, I always think I was carrying around 2 of those all the time! When you see something that weighs about what you lost I think it really leaves an impression.

    Scotlass- I made your ground meat in puff (sorry I can't remember what you call it) but as a pie- so we call in meat pie. Whenever we have a chicken potpie my husband sees it and thinks I've made him the meat pie again. He really loved it.

    Gretchen- I can't quote at all, let alone from another thread.

    So I was grumbling this morning because my mom wanted me to go to the mattress store and help her decide which mattress to get. Well I thought this was just plain silly, I though she and my dad should pick it out. It turns out my parents got us a California King bed! I am so excited, our bed really needs to be replaced, I'm to young to wake up with a sore back, but it's a big expence and something more important always comes up. My husband is so darn tall, I'm really looking foward to having some space. My brother is getting a big present too, but they don't know what yet. I hope I get to help them pick.
