Catch Up Fridays

(Cathy) I set this page up yesterday and I now just realized that I forgot to send the e-mail out to let the ladies know that the page was set up. Oops!

I hope everyone is enjoying the rain. I hope everyone realizes that I'm being sarcastic! The sun came out for about an hour yesterday. The weatherman keeps saying that this summer is going to be the hottest and sunniest than those summers past. I am not a believer! I tried three times to go outside to garden today and each time I went out it started to rain too hard to continue gardening! (Sunshine) With all of this rain the grass has needed constant cutting and we have not had any pool weather as of yet. P.S. Cathy, thanks for setting up the post for us. (Carolin) Yes, I guess the one nice thing about all this rain is our lawn looks so green and lush. As for the coming summer it is hard to believe that the weather forecast calls for hot, ho,t hot summer. So far it is a cold wet summer.
I now know how they felt in Calgary with all of the snow this past winter!

On to other things. I upped my aerobics to 45 minutes today. I am going to see if that helps to burn more fat. I think that I will need to do at least 30 minutes minimum of aerobics and then add on the yoga and strength and balance exercises. I did 6 minutes of rhythm boxing and advanced step twice. I also did the rhythm parade and obstacle course. I did OK in the snowball fight and not so good and the advanced downhill skiing slalom course. Oh, well. Good job Cathy.

Dinner was homemade pizza. I was good and only ate two slices. I saved two slices for tomorrow. Speaking of pizza. Little Miss Sunshine attended a friend's birthday party last year and again last night and she raves about how the pizza this little girl's dad makes is the best pizza that she has ever had. Well of course I had to ask how he makes it. He says that he uses any pizza dough from any grocery store, jarred tomato sauce and pizza mozzarella. It is the same thing that he told me last year when I asked. I told him that he is really killing me as I always make my own sauce. Last year I followed his exact directions (I didn't even know that the grocery stores actually carry pizza mozzarella, but they do). but his pizza still wins. According to Little Miss Sunshine no other pizza even comes close. I must say that when I dropped her off the scent coming from the house was incredible. I was so tempted to ask for a slice so that I could taste for myself but I just couldn't bring myself to do so. Little Miss Sunshine says it's so good that there are never any left overs.

Everything else is about the same around here. Work was busy as we were short one of the girls. I was talking to the lead hand custodian and I was contemplating maybe applying for that job. I would still be working part time but evenings, 4 - 8. I am not thrilled with the hours but it's not that bad and the pay is double what I make now with full benefits. I am going to think about it. I may be able to pick up the girls. Drop them off and get to work on time depending on the school that I would be scheduled at. That is if they even consider me for the position. It's all based on seniority and apparently it would take me years to switch to days. One of the custodians just got days this year and that is after working for 27 years. I don't know, what do you all think? Sounds like crap Sunshine and I think you will hate it. Of course that's just my opinion. I agree with Carolin!

Miss Teen Sunshine got her G1 last week and now she is driving everywhere. To school and back and to work and back. It's kind of nice relaxing while I get chauffeured around but somehow I feel as though my car is no longer mine. Yeah for her but most of all I am so impressed that you can sit in the car and are relaxed. To this day I am still nervous when the teenager drives.

The little one and husband have gone away for the weekend. I spent most of the day today shopping. I had birthday and shower gifts to get but of course I also bought myself lots of stuff. Dresses for the upcoming weddings, summer tops, skirts, capri's. It was a very nice day. Not real sure where the teenager is, last I heard this morning she was going over to a friend's house for a game of dungeon and dragons.

Oh yeah one more thing, a few months ago I bought two books for each of you for our next book club. I forgot to give them to you the last time I saw you.

Have a good week everyone!

  1. Hiya Carolin, I could do with a new book. Remind me I have a book for you too.

    Hey Sunshine, stick with the cooking!
