Wasn't he like a Conan, the Barbarian type of character?

Drool, for sure--

You're adorable, Diana!

I have no idea what this was about, lost my train of thought after John Corbett and Shemar Moore.

Rewatching Sex and the City? Yes, please.

That is all.

PS- Clay Matthews ain't so bad either.

He was half man/half God...Hercules! But in that picture he was promoting his movie Kull the Conqueror.

Remind me not to sleep in again. It's after 4, and I just ate lunch! When the heck am I going to find the time to digest my food and get a workout in before it's time to pick Mitch up from rehearsal at 6?

I don't know, but I know I love your profile picture.

(random, I know-- just had to tell you)

Thanks, Marla. That was on our 20th anniversary. Man, that was almost two years ago. Where does the time go anyway?

I got my workout in. I'm all gross and sweaty and off to pick up my son. I'm sure he'll be very impressed with his mother. LOL

Biffed it on the ice today. I stepped out of the garage when I went home for lunch. I can do the splits...who knew? huh Nothing seriously hurt except my pride. My tea mug went flying about 50 feet, and my left quad got quite a stretch.

Strength day for me. The calorie burn is never quite as high, but I know it is necessary. And I like it! Trying the P90X2 DVDs. One move is a mule kick burpee. You are SUPPOSED to jump a bit, leap forward, land on your hands and do a bit of a handstand, go down into a push-up, pull each knee up once, and then jump up. Yeah, right. I will certainly hurt something! I modify. I would prefer not to crack my head open or break a wrist.

Nothing too exciting here. And that's okay by me smile

Oh, my news feed reminded me: has anyone heard from Jan in awhile?

Diana is adorable! Why do you keep putting up animal pictures when you have such a cute face? LOL

I'm waiting to go pick up Alex from skating at 10 or a little before. I'm tired and ready for bed. I hate kids having social lives that cute into my sleep time! I'm feeling pretty wasted right now and no, I drank nothing. It's Friday, I'm tired and done.

I was so hungry tonight. I can't decide how much I want to eat. Everything was good and healthy, I feel like I should stop, yet, I'm sure wanting more. I didn't go overboard. At all. I am debating an apple and peanut butter or a protein shake. I really want the apple, I just love those things. The protein shake will hit the spot too and give me more protein, which I need, but I kinda wanna chew something and the apple will last a lot longer.

Such choices. I know. Hard life.

I'm feeling a little guilty. I utterly detest talking on the phone anymore. When it rings, I want to ignore it and pretend I don't hear it. Tom has been gone for a week and I still don't want to talk on the phone. He's one of those question people. "How are you?" "How was your day?" "What are you doing?" "How are the kids?" I give brief one or two word answers. Fine. Good. Getting dinner. Same as usual.

It's painful. The kids complain about talking to him because he does the same thing, pelts them with question after question. There is no conversation with him and them, just questions galore.

I'm fine if the call actually turns into a conversation, but that question **** is for the birds. He does the same thing on his way home from work, asks questions and then when silence takes over, he starts giving me a play by play of the traffic and what cars pissed him off.

So the guilty part. He's away, he called, I was less than talkative. I feel kinda bad, but I can't help it. Ugh! Drives me batty!

Were you in the group when mean ol' Lori had us do burpees a while back, Kaylynne? grumble Meanie.

Glad you weren't hurt on the ice.

Lori-- too funny-- I feel that way on the phone with my kids-- kinda odd, 'cause I was always a phone person in my youth. But when Faith was away, even, it was excruciating talking to her. Funny thing is, she's the same way. She kinda called because it was expected, to let me know all was well. And then, it was kinda, like, "Okay, good, honey-- glad you're having a good time. Love you."

Good night tonight-- Aaron had a basketball game at home, Faith sang the National Anthem then played in the "pep band" in the stands, then Keith and I took in some dinner. Experimenting with some glutens today-- checking out the hot bath theory-- ha. Keith swears it's the ticket, so, you know, okay-- I'll check it out. Lord knows nothing else has helped, and there is no denying that after my hot baths in Florida, my bloating was wayyyyy down. As my husband put it, in his inimitable, back-handed way, "You actually have a figure again." huh noway

So, tomorrow Keith heads over to pick up David's car, after doing some repairs to tail pipes, blah, blah, blah. I called David, told him his dad will need his help. Seems he's then coming with us to Aaron's, Abby's and Hope's basketball games, and then staying for dinner and coming to the variety show at school tomorrow night with us to hear Faith sing.

This kid has missed his family-- go figure. Prayers coveted that all goes smoothly-- if nothing else, the kid has realized that his parents are flawed, had demons of their own, made mistakes as humans do, but love the stuffing out of him. He is devastated that we have turmoil in our family with Sarah-- he didn't want to be "that family" that had pain and suffering.

I reminded him of the families his father and I have come from-- we have sexual abuse in our families, elder abuse, rape, child abuse. Having a rebellious daughter out of the flock is a day in the beach compared to what's out there.

So, he sees it-- still hard for an immature 21yo to handle-- hell, it's hard for an immature 47yo to handle-- ha.

He told me some stuff about Sarah that I wasn't surprised to hear. She and Skype Boy are sharing an apartment. "Separate bedrooms," though, he says Sarah said. Yeah, whatever-- he had some harsh words for her. I was rather surprised, but gratified. He was very critical of her dress-- came just short of using the "slut" word to describe her-- it was more like, "I don't want to say she dresses like a slut," but said she goes out of her way to wear skintight clothes to look as sexy as she can.

He even said he "likes" Skype Boy, but doesn't trust him. He said, "Maybe I've got too much of Dad in me, but I don't trust the guy. Can't put my finger on it. But I don't trust him." He was also very concerned that it seems Sarah and Skype Boy are talking marriage in the near future. Lovely. He says he told her she's a fool-- that she hardly knows him. One year is not long enough, blah, blah, blah-- so, you know, good stuff coming from him.

Sadly, he looked like hell-- maybe reuniting with his family will help some of his pain-- I hope so.

Oh well-- hot bath done for the night. I sweat like a pig-- curious to see what happens in the morning with the abdominal bloating. I had a hamburger for lunch, a hot dog, some pasta, a cupcake-- nope, not the best choices-- but it was definitely to test. We'll see-- I'll keep you posted. I'm sure you'll all wait with bated breath-- ha.

Okay-- sorry-- yapfest all done. Hope Alex had a good time, Lori. Aaron has some friends over to play "Risk" and they're apparently staying over-- yippee. Then he's in the doghouse again-- knucklehead. More dishonesty-- bad attitude-- really, really bad attitude at tonight's game. We've always been nutty about the kid's behavior outside our house, for coaches, teachers, etc-- you cause problems for another authority figure, and you're toast, kid. He's sassing the coach, rolling his eyes, et cetera-- not happening, buddy.

so, I lied...NOW the yapfest is done.

Hope you all had a good day-- looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow-- tiring week.

Love to all.

Marla – I hope all goes smoothly with David today. heart Did your hot bath help with the bloating this morning? Wouldn't it be something if that was the answer?

Lori – I'm the same way about talking on the phone. I like it if there's an actual conversation, but it drives me batty when there isn't one or, worse, when it's one-sided. I love my brother to death, but he'll talk my ear off on the phone just to hear the sound of his own voice, I swear. I think I could probably put the phone down for 5 minutes, come back and say a couple of "Uh Huhs," and he'd never realize I'd been gone.

Kaylynne – Splits on the ice? Yikes! I'm not sure which sounds worse, that or mule kick burpees. laugh

Yesterday was a better day for Andrea. Here's hoping today will be as well.

I think I know why sleep is essential for weight loss. Sleeping in yesterday and being awake fewer hours made it so much easier not to overeat. I didn't have breakfast until the time I usually am having lunch! I ended the day popping a few Hershey's Kisses. Six, I think, but who's counting? tongue Surprisingly, it makes me happy when I do things like that now. It used to be doing something like that would be the trigger for a binge and purge. It's been a long time since I've done that. Long enough that I almost believe it'll never happen again, and that feels awesome.

Make this a great Saturday, all! flowerforyou

Wow...I am the first one awake today? It is going to be a gorgeous day here...sunny and in the low 60's. I am going to try to drag somebody to go hiking with me up in the Ga mountains. Daughter and boyfriend and hubs most likely. Son never likes to do anything that requires exerting himself so I am sure he is going to decline my invite.

Kaylynne - glad the only thing you hurt was your pride when you were practicing your splits.

Marla - Kid's ...they make our lives so full and at the same time make us crazy. Mine (particularly daughter) never gave us a smidgen of trouble...straight A's, never rebelled, always obeyed curfew, but as soon as she left and went to college OMG...who is this person I raised! Her positives outweigh her negatives (thankfully) but there are some things just leave me scratching my head and I wish for the best. We are close but I really work on excepting the adult she is turning out to be. Funny thing is the flaws I notice in her are the same ones I see in myself. This is her journey. I hope David and Sarah find their way back and realize that everything we do and say as parents comes from the heart and we are really looking out for their best interests.

Lori - I also hate talking on the phone. When my husband used to commute to work he would call me out of boredom sitting in traffic and I would get the play by play of what car was driving crazy, what cool sports car just passed him, the accident report and the list goes on. Now he can bother me in person laugh

Jill - I did not address it yesterday, but my heart goes out to you and the struggles you are having with Andrea. I hope you find what is best to help her cope with the difficulties she is experiencing.

Marla and Lori, thank you for the compliments on my picture. My first instinct was to say that was taken a long time ago blah, blah , blah, but I am just going to politely take the compliment. I need to work on not being so critical of myself.

Well by the time I post this I am sure I will not be the first one here anymore. It takes me forever to type...Good day team!

Happy Saturday! Basketball this morning, bank and groceries afterwards and bday parties for two of my nieces tonight. Tomorrow will be cook and laundry day.

DH and I got in some yoga. Need to shower. Leaving in 40 minutes. Yikes.

Later.

Ian and I went to Crossfit this morning. I need to take Jordan to ACMoore, which is not in our town. Grrr. When Walmart remolded, they did away with the entire craft/material section. Now our only choice is to drive the 25 miles elsewhere to get what we need. What a pain in the patootie. Oh well, I'll hit the commissary while I'm down that way, we need the usual- milk, eggs, bread, veges, fruit.

I keep telling myself that if I do all of my chores today, I don't have to get dressed tomorrow! It's my rest day and I'm going to milk it!

Have a great day my friends!

Quick drive-by--

Jill-- yes, the hot bath worked-- I'm 198 this morning-- .5 lb lower than yesterday-- huh not a smidge of bloat.

Staying on the t3 and doing the hot baths-- for now, I'm a believer.

Need to scoot-- busy day.

You guys crack me up-- "yoga" hehehe--

Too bad we're not neighbors. We have a hot tub that I never use. Mitch is the only one who ever does. I shudder to think how much it contributes to our energy bill keeping that thing heated 24/7 all year long.

We drained ours because we never used it...I always joke about making it into a giant planter.

I'd like to drain ours, but as long as Mitch still wants to use it, I'd feel guilty doing that. I am still kicking myself that we ever bought it. I was so sure I'd use it all the time. ohwell
