I have an all day inservice today and then book club tonight. Still have no idea what my costume will be because all my free time has been consumed with reading the final Twilight book - I'm 1/2 now. It is keeping my face in the book - should do that instead of eating. haha

We didnt' have Book Club last night so I had a nice quiet evening at home with Wayne and I totally loved it. I miss spending time with him. We watched Land of the Lost with Will Farrell and Drag Me to Hell. I started to watch another movie but of course it has scratches so I couldn't watch - keep freezing.
Busy day at work and then have a scrapbooking party to go tonight. Hope to get home early so I can just cuddle with Wayne and read - didn't realize that WWW Book Club is Mon. and I'm not even 1/4 done with our book.
Happy day everyone.

Today we are having an Alz. expert come to the the facility and check out the Dementia unit -will be interesting to hear what she has to say.
Book Club tonight - Twilight. I have to figure out a costume when I get home. I did finish the book but didn't realize how quick the discussion was coming up. I did love the book and still have to read book 4 once I finish up our WWW Club book.
Good day everyone.

I think I'm getting a cold because I feel very rundown. Yesterday I left work with a major headache and today I just feel so blah. I have a busy day so there is not time to whine about it. haha
Wayne is off because he worked Sat. He gets to sleep in - ugh so unfair. :) Last night we went shopping with our $100 gift card - boy the store is expensive we spent $150 and didn't even have a full cart.
OK world I'm ready for you. Blessings everyone.

Yesterday we watched football and the kids came home to celebrate Wayne's birthday. It was a good day but I still don't want to go to work.

Today we are going up to our friends Mike and Debbie's to watch the Patriots Game.
We woke up to a cold rain - ugh, winter is coming.
Yesterday a friend game me this cool stand with drawers so I can now organize my papers and rubber stamps - love getting free useful things.
Blessed day everyone.

We had a great dinner last night - it amazes me how we don't make time for our friends and family.
The weather turned out beautiful today. I met Kim S. for coffee and we talkd Veterans. I started to decorate the house for Halloween, will finish tommorrow as tonight Wayne and I are going to the VFW POW dance fundraiser.

Today the scale said 186.8. I am really getting tired of the no selection, but the worst part is people telling you how bad 500 calories a day is for you. I'm glad I have Theresa to bounce things off of or I would really go crazy.
We had friends over for dinner and I ate. It was great but now I'm nervous that I gained weight. I don't care if I broke even but it will kill me if I gained, but it was worth it. Because of the snow last yesterday they cancelled the Pumpkin Fest for tomorrow. yea, I can sleep in. Then I'm meeting Kim for coffee and to discuss my ideas for Veterans.

I had a Woman's Club meeting and I was nervous on how I would do but I was fine. I brought my one piece of Melba toast and strawberries. I drank some water but couldn't drink it all as I didn't want to get up to use the bathroom...so I do know my limits. I volunteered to head up Veterans as Kim is no longer able to do that.
Today is Wayne's birthday and he wants nothing...wants to do nothing...so my gift to him will be a clean house when he gets home. So after my Dr. appt. (to check my kidney stones) it's off to clean, clean, clean before I go to card making.
Have a blessed day.

The diet - I'm not on a diet, I've decided on changing my life and starting with my eating habits. Everytime I tell someone I'm on a diet it puts a negative taste in my mouth and this change of life is hard enough for me as it is. My hunger time is between 3-6 and with it being cold it makes it even harder. I'm seeing just how much I rely on food so this is a really growing time for me. I did eat squash last night which is not on my list but I have to break the rules a little or I'm going to end up cheating a lot. I did not add butter. The scale this morning said 189.4, so it was down - not complaining. I have Woman's Club meeting tonight so I am a little nervous on how I'm going to do - but I just have to do it.
Stay tuned, hopefully I'll add some more cards here soon. Keep making your own life experiences.

Over the weekend Wayne and I went to see Couple's Retreat - with Matt, it was funny. Yesterday we went to friend's to watch the Patriot's game and were so disappointed that Patriots and Red Sox lost - it was ugly in my house last night.
I am still reading the 3rd Twilight book and got to the 1/2 way point last night. I'm hoping to finish this up before the new book comes for my church group book club - I can't read more than one book at a time as some can.
Have a great day all.

I had to take one of our Residents to the Aqua Turf today - it was not fun having to drive the van in the wind. Couldn't wait to get back home. Getting anxious for a play date - so will try to find something interesting to attend.
Hope everyone had a great day - see you tomorrow.

Was able to figure out how to add the card. The other side of my spinner has a EEK cutout with a bat. I really had fun making this card.
I found a website on-line (thanks Diane) for card swapping and such. I joined my first swap and I'm just waiting to see if all the cards need to be the same or different - we need to make 6 of them and they need to include a heart. This should be fun - I'll keep you updated.
Brandi and I went out to lunch together, which is always a treat for me. I thought I would never be the mom who would miss her kids but I sure do. Matt came home for a couple hours last night and it was great.

Besides that the Pats and Red Sox won. Tony Stewart won and I started to read Eclipse - what a great day.
Finished watching friend's dogs so now life is back to normal.
I have tomorrow off so I am going to try to come up with a cool card to use form pages of an old book - not sure what I want to do but I'm sure I'll figure something out.
Tata for now.

I'm getting really into scrapbooking and now rubber stamping. As soon as I figure out how to use the scanner - the printer part of it works but we can't get the scanner working I will post pics and get this party started.
