This thread was started before the dawn of time by Amazons who needed to compare their stats with other Amazons. Over time it grew into a community of incredible women who try to keep their spirits in the clouds and their feet on the ground, moving toward health. Most of us start at 5'7 and go up from there, from young singles to wise and lively elders of the tribe. We welcome newcomers who are willing to be kind and share a bit of their lives.
Two days in a row! This is unheard of for me to start the thread. I did go to church this morning. Some of the wording has changed at this particular Mass. Maybe I'll go back or perhaps try a different church. Not sure all the way around.
I did purchase the 3 month pass. Going to give it my best shot. Did look at connect last night. So many amazing before and afters!
What else? It's raining. Floor cleaning and just cleaning on my agenda. It never ends.
Linda, wishing speedy thoughts to your dd who isn't well. ENJOY your day off! What will you do with your free time?
Frieda-it's good that you can be free now and journal. I remember my outlet was music. I could listen for hours and it helped me to feel better.
My trip to see DN went well. I stayed over. She is so accustomed to being alone. It's weird to me. My whole life I've usually been around people. I like DHs company. She's beautiful and so kind and almost 30. She doesn't mind being alone. I have to remember that even folks who are surrounded with people are sometimes lonely too.
She got embarrassed when we went to Red Lobster..1.5 hour wait at the table. Terrible service and food. I asked for the mgr, calming explained it was bad. DN got red and covered her face with her hands. After I explained that tough conversations are not always easy but necessary. I shouldn't have to pay for a rotten experience. The restaurant needs to get it together. It's simple. She says she has no guts for it. She's letting current boyfriend/guy walk all over her. He won't even claim her as his gf after 7 months. Dumb. Who knows.
It was a fun time anyway. I've got cleaning to do. Thinking of you all.
I am so happy to have the opportunity to chat with those of you who found your way on the board today.
I just got back from the best walk at Fort Calhoun. I encountered a little girl. I complimented her on her skirt. We'd intersected paths and then later our paths merged, so I meant a greeting and small talk and go on. Stranger danger etc. But she kind of tried to keep up, so I didn't out distance her. Had a nice chat about how I could never do soccer like she does, and the sticker on her cheek is because her younger sister is in ballet and gets two. She gives her one. When we got to where she turned, she said she'd see me sometime. I wanted to ask her why she was walking alone across town. She was a way serious little girl that I'm glad I visited with.
I had no grandkids today. DH and I got private conversation and thought it was probably semi annual.
Frieda, I'm hoping you find a church that gives you something to grow with. I had a great church and then an internal conflict cause a horrible devide. I haven't restarted going. I was going to this week, but thought I'd take advantage of the couple time.
And I'm going to join weight watchers. I'm going to sign up for the monthly pass, but til Tuesday they have the promotion of a membership kit if you join for three months. Often they have a free month if you sign for three. That's when I'll spring
We are headed into a mild week and sounds like I could host a stroller ride every day. I'm going to enjoy that. Plus, since Sunday is when I plan my jobs, activities, and menu for the week, I'm feeling like I will get so much accomplished.
Thank you for your prayers for DD3. I talked to her today and she sounds so good. She talked to her father last night ( I found from talking to her. He didn't mention it) and he discussed her symptoms and said if she didn't have the symptoms and felt well, he thought she could cancel the tests. She probably will. She was losing weight without trying. The kind of thing that concerns a mom.
My brother is bringing me a pizza tonight for my birthday. Not the Wewa version of a celebration bit for him to think of doing something to mark the occasion was out of the realm of expected.
Melinda, I'm not simply concerned about DN not complaining about bad service on what was probably a busy night, but staying with someone who doesn't take pride in being able to date her is scary and sad.
