"Smokin' In The Boy's Room"-Motley Crue

Another busy week...

Well, I shopped til I dropped both Thursday and Friday. Actually, Thursday was cross-training day with BFF!!! We shopped and carried our hangers of clothes for over 2 hours!!! That gave us some strong muscles. Plus, both days we probably walked 5 miles each day! I can honestly say that I put in my 10,000 steps every day this week. Today I took a physical break and caught up on the yahoo list I co-own. Plus, I cleaned some boxes out and now I am preparing eggs to be colored for our egg fight tomorrow.

Happy Springtime!!!

"On Broadway"-George Benson

Bunko Babe foiled again!

I didn't win anything at Bunko but I did have fun, as usual! We always have fun.

I walked before I went to Bunko. I did a bit over 3 miles and it was 45 minutes. My shins are getting sore. I have to be careful as I stopped running because of shin splints many years ago. I don't want any problems. I need to stretch more before I venture out.

I want to go 5 miles tomorrow. The weather is too good not to walk!

"Here I Go Again"-Whitesnake

Heigh ho, Heigh's off to sew I go...

Today was sewing club. Though I was extrememly tired and in a not sociable mood, I really didn't want to go. I did, however, force myself knowing that I need to keep active and moving regularly. I was sure glad I did.

By noon, I had cut many strips for the border. Now, I have to sew these strips together and next month at sewing, see what is the next step. I am liking the color combination I picked. I hope to be done by July.

No walk today. I wanted a break since my calves were really tight yesterday and I walked 5 miles. I will try to get up tomorrow early am and walk 4 miles. I have Bunko at 9:30 so I have to go at 6:30 am.

"Dreamweaver"-Gary Wright

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy.....

Another walk under my belt. I walked 5 miles today. Slower pace at 1:23 but still less than 17 minute miles. I was 180 lbs. this am so things are going along well.

I hope to work on household chores in the next few days and get clothes together for donation. I am also keeping up with the new plants in the backyard. The Hibiscus are looking great!

Tomorrow is sewing club and I will be working on my quilt. It is getting close to being done and it looks so bright and cheerful for my first one.

Tax day is fast approaching. Have you done yours?

"Take the Long Way Home"-Supertramp

Late to Bed, Late to Rise

Since staying up til the wee hour of 3:30 am waiting for Promboy to return, I decided not to walk this am but instead, sleep in. Good idea as I was tired all day. I will start back up tomorrow.

I went with my BFF to the mall (and with my younger son) for shoes. We ate an early dinner at Olive Garden...mmmmmmmmmmm breadsticks with Alfredo Sauce............. I also shared the Chicken Alfredo w/Broccoli. And there was enough to bring home for hubby. Good stuff!

Tomorrow, I have to return the tux to After Hours and before 11 am so I don't get a late fee. They waived it for today since I told them I found it in the back of the car...Promboy put it in the back and I forgot it!!!

No Grey's Anatomy tonight, which sucks! I did see that they have two more episodes but no dates yet. Next week is Easter Sunday so that is probably out. If you check out the IMDB, you can find out lots about your favorite TV shows and the actors that play in them.

Okay, I'm outta here.....

"Born To Run" - Bruce Springsteen

A New Day

WOW!!! I missed yesterday!!! I walked 5 miles and met up with my BFF half way. We stopped at Barnie's for a quick java and bagel and then walked back. Both of us had a busy day as our kids both were going to Prom...same prom but different dates. What a day it was! I have the "easy" task of having a low maintenance son. Okay, he is extremely high maintenance but in a different way! BFF's daughter had hair, nails, make-up appts, etc... My son showered and dressed in 20 minutes!!!!

[My son is fourth from the left...dyed-black hair (in a family of blondes) with white suit]

My BFF's daughter was at a different house taking pictures.

It is now 1:48 am and rain is emerging quickly while I stay up waiting for his highness's arrival.
