Sharon, what show are you going to see this afternoon? Did the show you expected win the Oscars last week, and was it one that you had seen?

Yes, the sun is shining but it was still cold around here today. I just got back from shopping with my #1 daughter at Kohl's. Bill just slept most of the day today trying to recover and to just rest up for his last day. As he has a full work week this week. He says that in the morning he only gets 3-4 kids. He is inside the rest of the time and is only out crossing them for less than a minute. In the afternoon another story as they do not have rides where they do in the morning, so they all come at once. But that is for only 20 minutes. The rest of the time he is inside once again.

Bill is gradually getting better each and everyday. But he still has a ways to go yet to get back where he needs to be. At least he was able to get good rest over this weekend. For the past 3 nights he has gone to bed at 8. But he is only able to sleep 4 hours. Last night he slept 5 hours. Then he gets up and takes medication to put him back to sleep once again. But that takes an hour.

I have no idea whet we will be doing this week. Except for Wednesday, where we will have our last community police academy class for this year. I have to say it was very interesting and I am so glad that Bill had talked me into it. I would have never gone by myself and I had really enjoyed it over the winter.

Enjoy the show later on, and it is god that the mower guy will be picking them up to get ready for another season. You are good to stay on-top of them as you have had problems in the past. Do they guarantee them to work all season long once they have serviced them?

It is so windy today, makes it feel colder than it is.

I saw Red Sparrow yesterday at the movies. It had Jennifer Lawrence in it and had some full frontal nudity, I was surprised. Very violent film just like the one last week, Death Wish.
But I wanted to go and that was about the best choice I had.
I got home around 7:30 and had a call on my phone about 6 from neighbors. They were going out to eat pizza and said they would stop and pick me up. Well, missed that one so ate carry out at home alone again.
I had asked a friend from zumba if she would go with me to the corned beef and cabbage dinner tonight. She said yes and then called this afternoon just before I went to get the tickets and said she had a Lioness meeting and couldn't go. She was really sorry and said she would make it up to me, but here I am eating alone again tonight.

Did you buy anything at Kohls? I got a 30% last time but didn't even go, just still trying to get rid of stuff. But I am going to have to buy a new pair of jeans, mine are too big as you can imagine.

The mower guy did pick up the mowers this morning, I had told him I wouldn't be home to just go ahead and get them out of the pole barn.

Sharon, I picked up a couple of tops. My main reason for going was to buy some presents for a couple of employees at work who were having birthdays this week.

I agree that yesterday was not a good day at all weather wise. Today is not much better either. Just east of us they picked up a lot of snow. A major highway is closed due to many accidents. At least we did not get any

I have not heard of that film. But then again I have not been to a show, I cannot even remember. So no surprise.

Tomorrow is the last night for our citizens police academy. We have been doing this every Wednesday night all winter, and I have to say it was very interesting. I am glad that Bill had talked me into it.

Well that is good that the mower guy has picked up your mowers and he will be getting them ready for this season. Once he has serviced them does he offer a guarantee that they will work all season long?

No guarantees they will be good all summer. Depends on how I take care of them and if I don't run over anything that messes up the blades. I do always check the oil each time I use them, that is an important thing, just like on a car.

Didn't go to zumba this morning, yesterday at class the Tues/Thurs zumba instructor came and was standing right next to me. She never had anything to say to me or even acknowledged that I was there so I figured I wouldn't go to her class today.

I decided after that gal canceled on me for dinner that I would make my own corned beef and cabbage dinner. It was kinda late so it didn't get done until about 8:30. I debated if I should eat that late but hadn't had anything since breakfast so went ahead and ate. It was good and I have a lot left.

Sharon, I figured I would do the very same thing as you, make my own corned beef and cabbage. I know the last time I did that it was very expensive. But like you said there will be leftovers. I will not do that until Saturday when I am off. I did not feel like cooking last night so once I got home we went out to eat and there was only 4 of us there. Monday's are not popular for eating out. But then again it is nice to have the place to ourselves.

That was not very nice for that instructor to be ignoring you the way she did. You have been loyal and go each and every week and for her not to even make you feel like a valued member of her group. Maybe she will get the message when people do not show up and she is left with gaping holes in her class.

Once in a while after a hard day at work hare, I just feel like coming home and opening up a bottle of wine and have a glass. Then jump into the tub and relax. I figure in 2 months I will have my hot-tub once again for a short summer. I say that, as it seems like the summer just goes by way too fast.

I cannot think of anything else we have planned this week except for our last police academy tomorrow night. With this weather being so crap I would rather just stay inside where it is nice and warm.

The other instructor was teaching today so I did go to zumba. Aferwards me and another gal went to a different place for breakfast. So that was good, took up most of the morning. When I go home the mower guy had left a message that the mowers were ready. So I called him back and told him I was home all day. He came about 1:30 and dropped them off. This time it wasn't so much, $328. Both mowers had blades sharpened, oil changed and one of them needed a new battery.

I saw they are having pork roast and mashed potatoes for dinner tonight so that will be good to eat with someone. My weight has been pretty steady at 118, so I try to eat to keep it from going any lower.

Wine and a hot tub sounds nice. I have the wine but don't generally drink at home.

Sharon, that was a real good move on your part, to get the mowers serviced early before the real crunch starts. At least you will have piece of mind now all season long.

Good that the other instructor was doing the class today so you could go. Then being able to go afterwards to get something to eat as well. Tonight sounds like a good meal that they will be fixing for you all. So while you are doing that, we will be going to our last police academy tonight. I have to say it was very interesting and I really enjoyed it. I really got to see the behind the scenes on how the department works and to see various offers as well and how each one performs doing their jobs.

The sun was out bright all day today. But with the wind it felt much cooler than it was. It really did not warms up much today at all.

Bill is slowly improving each and everyday. When what he had had such a grip on him it takes a longer period of time to fully recover. Last night was the second night in a row where he slept all night long, without waking up and not being able to go back to sleep.

Glad to hear Bill is getting better. These things hang on for quite a while. Luckily seems no one up this way has been sick lately.

The meal was good last night, roasted pork, au gratin potatoes and gravy. One of the gals brought in Hawaiian salad for dessert too. There was about 5 slices of pork left and they wanted someone to take them so I volunteered. Will make a sandwich out of some of it this afternoon.

Didn't go to zumba, same instructor as Tuesday, only thing is ....then I don't talk to anyone all day long.

Tomorrow is WW, I think I have stayed the same so that will be good. Then the long weekend will be here again. I hate weekends, so long and boring. Might have to go to the show again just to get with some people.

Sharon, Bill caught this all from our trip to and from CLE. With being around sick people and those who sneezed without covering their mouth is what did him in. He rarely gets sick and this time it really got a good grip on him. He is slowly improving everyday but it is a slow process for him. For him the weekends are good just for him to stay home and inside and just to rest and to get better.

Good that you had a nice dinner out last night, and even better that you were able to take the leftovers home as well to have some snacks for you later on this week.

So we had our last class and it was really graduation and my GK's came as well. They had a sheet cake for us all and water and soft drinks. So we were home early and it was a nice ending to a great experience.

I have my nail's done after work today as I do this about every month. Then I have my hair colored and set every other week. What we have to go through to keep looking nice. Men have it so easy.

That sounds like a really nice way to end your classes. Bet it was interesting too.

Sorry, forgot to post last night, I went out for fish with a friend but gone done at 6pm and she didn't want to do anything else since she had fell in the shower that morning and her ribs hurt. So I came home and called my Friday night dancing friends, they said they were going and would pick me up. The other single gal was there so we did some line dancing.

I don't have my nails done, polish makes them split and weak. I don't get my hair done but maybe once a year if that. Since went almost white, no sense coloring it either.

Found out another dancing friend is in the hospital. He has Guilliane Barre syndrome. His legs got real weak and he couldn't stand up. His girlfriend took him to the emergency room, they gave him some pain pills and sent him home. The paralysis kept going so the next morning she took him to a bigger hospital in Janesville. That is where he got diagnosed. This is an autoimmune syndrome and it moves upward from your legs. If it gets to your lungs you have to be put on assisted breathing. Can also go up to your throat and you can't swallow. So this is not something to fool around with. Thursday night he was completely paralyzed all the way up to his chest. Evidently you can recover from it though so we are hoping for the best.

There is a band playing up in the next town at the bowling alley and starts at 7pm. My friend and her husband are going so I think I will go up there for a while tonight and listen to them.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Sharon, happy St Patrick's Day to you as well. It is not a very good day around here weather wise. We got a dusting of snow this morning and it is all melted away now as the temp is above freezing.

I do not want to mess around with buying corned beef and cabbage. So we decided to go out and eat tonight and let someone else do the cooking instead of me.

So did you ever have your neighbor come and look at the truck and see if there was something he could do so it does not run so hot?

I went to weigh-in this morning and I am down .8. At least I did not go up and loosing something is better than loosing nothing.

Wow, I have never heard of that disease before. It sound real serious and something that cannot be messed around with. So I hope that they can get it under control at the hospital.

Just going to stay inside and not to do much of anything else over this weekend. I'll let all of the crazies drink themselves into a stopper. I would much rather avoid crowds and drunks altogether. Some people just need and excuse to drink and to get drunk.

No didn't get anything else done to the truck. My grandson said he will be up the end of April to pick it up, his mom is coming too to ride back down to Louisiana with him. I am worried about it making it since the truck has not been really driven for at least 10 years or more.

My neighbors called me a little before I was going up to the bowling alley and said they were uptown having a glass of wine, why didn't I come and join them. I figured there was no set time to meet my friend at the "alley" so I went up and met them. Then we decided to have dinner since it is a nice supper club. They got one corned beef and split it, I got a bowl of baked onion soup and a shrimp cocktail, 2 appetizers. Then we all went up to the bowling alley and met my friend. They were a very good bank called P.F. and the flatheads. They played older 50's and 60's music, good to dance to. Me and my friend were doing a line dance and unbeknown to us they recorded it and put it on facebook. After we danced everyone seemed to get up and dance too. Had a good time.

Today went to the show, saw TombRaider, it was okay, got me out anyway. I should have probably went for a walk or something but didn't. It got up to 62 so was nice enough.

I was reading the side effects of my new cholesterol meds, it said it could turn off your appetite, maybe that's why I'm not hungry.

Sharon, if you grandson is coming to pick it up I would certainly have it checked out to see why it is running so hot. As it stands now I would think that it would be unsafe for him to be driving it any distance. How are you going to feel if something happens to him driving it back?

Well that was perfect timing for you to go out with your neighbor's to have a glass of wine and to get something to eat as well.

That sounds like a good time at the blowing alley. So you were on Facebook dancing. Have you actually seen it yet? I'll bet you were surprised to hear that you were featured on Facebook.

Yes, it was a good day yesterday as far as the weather goes. I just stayed inside and did some cleaning and relaxed before getting on the treadmill with this work week ahead. The jerk is coming in next month for a few days as his daughter is having another baby.

Well that is interesting about the side effects on your medication. Are you going to call the Dr and see what he may recommend?

I don't know what to do about the truck, the mechanic said it was okay. I would feel bad and have told my grandson that too, it has not been drove for at least 10 years so I don't trust it to go that far at higher speeds.

Boy you've got that to look forward to, the jerk coming in. Maybe he won't stay too long.

My friend had taken some pictures and was putting them on facebook when she saw the video of us so I already knew it was there. We did not know they had taken it or had put it on FB before that.

Went back to zumba this morning, the gal teaching told me that her father was in very serious condition in the hospital, maybe that is why she was a little distant last week. You never know what someone is going through.

I hired a guy to put the slats back in on the eaves of the pole barn. First he said he would charge me $200 and I told him there wasn't that much work involved so then he quoted $125. I think it's still too much but said okay. He was supposed to come after lunch today but has texted me that he has to finish the job he is working on and will come tomorrow.

Sharon, is the truck running real hot? If so the mechanic must be able to do something to cool it down. Certainly if it is running real hot, it will never make the trip. If you can at least get that corrected, then it should be OK to drive it as long as he does not push it and to just take it real easy.

What happened with the slats on the barn, did they fall out over the winter? Maybe once he actually sees the work he has to do, then perhaps he will not charge you that much if he does not have to do much at all.

Yes, for sure not looking forward to the jerk coming back even if it for only a few days. He will be coming in once his daughter gives birth. So I only expect him to stay for a few days, we shall see.

So now you are on FB dancing and having a good time. You must be a celebrity now being on FB and out and about dancing.

As you said, you never know what anyone is going through. With that much stress on her she must have just been zoned out thinking about her father and what to do next. I am even surprised that she was able to get in to do the class at all.

It has gotten real windy, so it does not feel as warm as it is due to the high winds. But at least we do not have heavy rains or snow like other's are getting around the country.

We had a real jerk build the pole barn and he didn't do a very good job. That's why I'm not surprised that the slats fell out with the wind over winter. Some blew out in the front and my neighbor fixed those but I didn't want to ask him for help again. The guy was supposed to come yesterday but texted me he had to finish a job he was on and would be here today. Then today I got a text from him saying we still on? I texted him back...you said you were coming today, if you don't want the job let me know I'll call someone else. Kinda made me mad, he's charging me so much money and then starts playing games! He did get here and I watched the time. From the time he took the ladder off his truck till he put it back on was 15 minutes. and yes he still charged me $125.00. i will not call him again.

It's real windy here too, and feels very cold for the first day of spring.

Sharon, I should say that this guy really jerked you around. I thought he would have been much more decent and once he saw how easy the job was that he would not have charged you so much. But at least it is done and finished now and you should be good to go for the rest of the year.

Yes, I agree about the weather today. Very windy here and the wind is coming off the lake and it sure does feel real cold with the high winds. This is not the day to be outside and I am sure Bill did not enjoy himself today at all. For this being the very first day of spring, it is more like an additional day of winter. But at least we are not getting heavy rains or snow.

I am just not feeling too energetic today at all. I did not sleep too well last night, and perhaps we will just go out to eat tonight once I get home. Maybe tonight will be different, as I do not do too well when I have not had a good nights sleep.

When we were out the other day we saw all of the bags of mulch stacked up at our local hardware. So that means that the season is just around the corner, as we always have to put more down each and every year. You are all set to go with having your mowers all set for the season. You just have to make sure you cover yourself up so you do not get any skin infections or ticks.

I know I probably should have just told him no, too high and called someone else, but I didn't. There are more slats in the eaves, so I hope they do not fall off with the next strong wind. The guy who built the pole barn did not do a good job so who knows.

I see the crossing guard when I go to town at the wrong time, and he is pretty bundled up. Its the wind that makes it so bad.

I saw other states were getting snow, luckily for us we aren't at least not now. Maybe the weekend will be different.

Did not go to zumba today, my friend down the road wanted me to come over this morning so I did that instead. Her daughter is scheduled to have a baby next Monday so she will be gone for a while to help her out. She is having someone come and feed her horses and dogs because she has 5 dogs that will be at her house. Her husband will be home some of the time. She is taking her dog with so I will not be watching her.

Going to see the girls tonight, having tacos because it is one of the girls birthday. She will bring the dessert.

I have been sleeping a little better, last night no so much either, but slept in later, too bad you can't do that.

Sharon, we have had some very high winds the past few days. So I hope that all of your slats will stay in place. At least if you need more work to be done, you know not to be calling him back ever again. With the winds it is much colder than it actually is. I did see where we could get some snow on Saturday, but just now they are throwing darts, as they do not know for sure. For Bill it is all about dressing for the weather. Fortunately he has a place where he can be inside until the kids come. In the morning he may only get 4 or 5, as most get rides. But in the afternoon when all of their rides are gone that is when he gets the bulk of them in the afternoon.

So is this the same lady who you usually watch her dog? But now she has 5 dogs as well as horses. So then it is good that someone else is coming to take care of feeding them all.

Well they do really take good care of you all on Wednesday nights. Especially when it is someone's birthday.

For me if I did not color my hair it would be dirty white. So now it is bright white and I deserve to do some things for myself, after being around here all week long. They have wine, so I can relax with a glass of wine.

I slept OK last night. But then again there are sometimes where I cannot get a good nights sleep. Yes, it would be nice if I could sleep in. I sometimes have a hard time sleeping in on the weekends.

Yes same lady, my pet sitter/neighbor. She just has the one dog but has 5 others that she will be taking care of. She keeps trying to get me to do it too as last week she had to turn away 6 people. I hope she is not gone too long at her daughter's house, I will miss her.

I have been looking into this thing called, Float Madison. You can google it and see what its all about. It looks interesting and I want to do it but have to find someone else to go with me and help me find the place. You can float in a Pod or a room if claustrophobic. It is supposed to be quite an experience. There are several around now, one in Chicago and one in Appleton. The one in Appleton is called Float Light.

You do deserve to get your hair/nails/pedicure done. You are still working so it is something that you enjoy doing and should be doing.

The snow is supposed to miss us, should be going south of here.

I have slept pretty good lately, a least I think I am, I really don't sleep late on the weekend either, just stay in bed and watch tv a little longer. I still wake up at 3am and then again about 4:30 or 5. Restless sleep after that until I get up at 7 or 7:30.

Will see how I am doing at WW tomorrow morning, think I am still the same. Go up a pound then down one but right in between 118 and 120 usually.
