Ho - hum...........

Things have been kind of slow around here..........i have no art to show you, no terribly goofy pictures...............so i've been procrastinating making a post. I've been working on some MailArt.........which i can't show you yet as it has not been received by the recipient. Thats why i'm just now adding some color to the peacock picture but nothing worth showing yet. Family members been sick...........hubby has been sick but remarkably i went for a walk in the chilly rain yesterday and i'm still not sick..........(knock on wood lol) Hubs took off from work yesterday and slept most of the day. He had everything from stuffed up head, runny nose, nausea......yeah you get the picture without getting too graphic...........I made the run to Walmart for emergency supplies.....Gatorade, chicken noodle soup.........jello........The nurse told him one thing i thought was odd.............to stay away from anything with red food coloring in it so in other words.....lemon/lime jello and Gatorade........hmmmm where have i been to not already know this, is this new???? So anyway hubs back at work...............Lysol spread around.........and so far I feel good........usually no matter how careful we are i usually end up getting at least some version of whatever cold or flu he catches. I think my immune system is a little better than his as i usually don't get it as bad as he does. I wonder if that has something to do with losing the weight and exercising???
Speaking of which.........its been a difficult week. A little lack of motivation going on here. You know when motivation is running high i wish i could bottle it and bring it out when motivation starts lagging...............i had trouble stringing days together this week. I don't mean i haven't exercised........but since i started a few weeks ago i've been pretty darn good stringing two and three days of walking together.......this week has been more like every other day. And the hill walk has still not happened......calves are still giving me trouble and i could tell you that was the reason but really its this sudden lack of motivation.............you know the calves are usually a sign that i'm over doing it too early.......... but except for the 'step fiasco' i have just been walking. I've added some distance recently and frequency , maybe thats it. But from the past i know once my calves start bothering me its hard to get them to stop, thats why i'm usually so careful to take it slow. And why i've really been kicking myself for those steps! So we'll just have to see...........i'm going to work on stretching them more.......i already do, as i stop a time or two during the walk to stretch them.........maybe i should go back and use the heat pad on them some more??.............
Before i go i wanted to tell you that hubs was found eligible and referred for a Supply Tech job with the FBI!! How cool is that??? Who knows if he'll get it but its cool to be considered. :) Hugs? Deb
PS....................have you moved your body today????? Put your big toe out the front door, let the sun shine on your face..........just take that first step.........

Hi Deb
Well, its dreary here. A little rain that will probably go to snow. Its hard to get motivated some days, but heck girl, you got it going so don't stop now. A walk down the block is better than no walk at all.

I think the red food dye is about not having it in your system in case you throw up or have diareha. You would not confuse the red dye with blood. That would be my uneducated guess.

So chip up girl..don't wait till tomorrow...go dance around the kitchen. Its great exercise too!!
xx, Carol

It must be dreary all over the country because it's raining here, waiting to turn to snow. Anyway, keep focusing on where you want to be!

The FBI job sounds pretty cool. They typically move people around, does this mean it is in California?

Hoping for good things to happen to you and yours!
