Day 175: Creepers

Posted in Uncategorized by pishposh71 on April 30, 2010

I know that there are all sorts of peole in t his world and that we all have our unique sets of issues.  That said there is one gropup of people that I don’t really understand and today I feel the need to write about them.

Several months ago we had a new older couple move onto our street.  No harm no foul as the winter months slipped by but now that it has warmed up I have noticed along with my neighbors and concerning behavior.

It was bought to my attention by a friend living in close proximity to the house that the man like to stare at heavier set woman and that he has “accidently” touched several woman’s breasts  in passing.  I was even told he propositioned someone one day while his wife was not  home.  I find that creepy enough.

Now I have started to pay closer attention to the going ons around that house.  I have noticed that this man will lurk around his driveway when othersare outside.  He is not doing anything in peticular, just wonders around the bottom of his driveway.  The other day he sat in his parked car watching us for several hours.

Now some people are watchers.  I like to think that he is just looking for an “in” to meet people.  I keep thinking that I am being over judgmental with this but still I have this uncomfortable feeling about it.

So thats it for today’s sharing.  I know that they have become few and far apart these days but there seems to be a great deal going on in my life to keep me busy!

As always I wish you all a beautiful day!

The actual “box” of the trailer is 21 feet long in the travel position and about 32 feet long when the beds are set up.

Just a pull of a lever and this sofa jack knives down into the bed position.  To the right of the sofa is a white cabinet. This is where the TV will be.

Day 165: Time is of essance……

Posted in Uncategorized by pishposh71 on April 19, 2010

I am ashamed that after all those days I let this slip with no entry for over a week.  My life has simply been too busy to get here and write.  My hand is in a dozen honeypots and I;m juggling to many eggs so to speak.

So I have come to the conclusion that I will just write when I have time to write.  With the summer around the corner I will likely write less and less but then fall will arrive and things will go back to normal.

My weight loss is still going well, slow and steady with 1/2 lb drops each week. It’s not a lot but I’m learning a whole new life style here.  I don’t consider what I am doing dieting at all. I just think more about what I am consuming but that said I allow myself some room to live.  I am finding this a good balance and know that I can maintain this style for future years.  So a 1/2 lb to a pound a week is ok in the grand scheme of things for me.

Other than that things remain the same for me.  One more week and we have my husbands party. I am hoping that I pull that off smoothly without any significant problems. I hope.

We get our new trailer in another few weeks and I am excited about that but also terrified at the same time.  I went through this when we got the last one too though as I worried so much about it.

Well, thats it for today!  I wish you all well!

Day 153: Cake, Food and Music

Posted in Re Inventing Me by pishposh71 on April 7, 2010

OK so I need to get my ass in gear.

I really do!!

April is upon us and I am hosting a 40th birthday party for my husband on Friday April 23rd.  I took the first steps and reserved the facility and arranged the live band so that’s a good start.  Now I need to really think about the food I want to have there, the cake and the music.  For some reason the music is really causing me grief.  The band will play several sets of music and I know they are good as I have seen them perform on other occasions.  When they take a break I need music to play and this is on my shoulders to assemble.  I have to be  honest and admit I have no desire to make these playlists and so I am dilly dallying about it.

Today I researched cakes and decided on a very funky one.

I am going to change it a little so that it can have a video game theme but the basic bones of this cake is really cool!.

The food needs to be coordinated and I promised my mother in law that I would get on top of this as she has some people who are asking what they can bring.  So I guess that’s tomorrows job.

Well thats it for today.  I wish you all a wonderful afternoon 🙂

Day 152: The value of a dollar

Posted in Uncategorized by pishposh71 on April 6, 2010

I was so thankful to see the sun come out yesterday.  The rain really was depressing after the beautiful weekend we had.  Once the ground dried out we headed for the park.  Yesterday I had four children plus two of my own.  The oldest went to stay with his cousins at their Nana’s.  The kids got along pretty well which makes my day pleasant.  A surprise as they where nit picking each other in the early morning.  So all in all the day went well.

In the evening I took my daughter to the mall to shop with her birthday money and she had fun thinking over what her purchases would be.  It was good to see her thinking and evaluating what was her best course of action.  Having an understanding of the cost and value of her money.

So after the mall it was a rush home to get everyone ready for bed.

Another day over and done.

Day 151:Yet another day

Posted in Uncategorized by pishposh71 on April 5, 2010

My arms are returning to normal.  They have been rather achy since Friday’s workout and it actually felt sore in my armpits when I put on deodorant. No pain no gain.

Speaking of gain. This week has not been a good one for the scale.  A birthday dinner, cake and then our turkey dinner did not bode well.  I’m not going to not have a nice meal after spending 11 hours working to pull it off so I allowed myself a decent plate of food.  So the scale will likely go up a little or remain the same.  I need life to return to normal so I can get back on track with everything.

Anyway the day went well, the meal ran smoothly and the clean up was a group effort so not too painful.

Another beautiful day!

Day 150: All is well

Posted in Uncategorized by pishposh71 on April 4, 2010

So what a beautiful weekend we had.  I mean it was like summer out there and I loved every minute of it!

I drained the dirty water off the pools winter cover and unwrapped and set up the patio furniture.  At least when I look out the window it looks a little nicer.

We took a big bike ride with some other family and the kids which was nice, I even bullied my husband into going.

We went to Montana’s for dinner and then over to my brother in-laws to watch a movie after I tidied our house and peeled 15 lbs of potatoes.

All and all a good day!

Day 149: Happy Birthday!

Posted in Uncategorized by pishposh71 on April 3, 2010

Today my daughter turns nine years old.  I am not sure exactly where the time has gone. It seems to just whisp away as the years go by.  My life racing ahead.  So we celebrate today!!

This post is a bit of a cheater post.  I am writing it in advance of the date as I know that life will not permit me to do so on the day.

Téa will be happy though as she will get her hot pink BMX bike so she can “roll” with the boys!

I am hoping that all her sticker I ordered on E bay will arrive too.  She asked for Pink DC, Billabong, Roxy ect.  She may be a  girl but in her world its all about being like a boy.  I guess I should be thankful that she at least wants pink stuff and not boy colors too. Even her helmet has to be hot pink (and she required the same brand as her big brothers)

Happy Birthday to my little girl on her 9th birthday!

I wish you all a beautiful day!

Day 148: Focus

Posted in Uncategorized by pishposh71 on April 2, 2010

I am having a harder time focusing again.

I mean its not like I have given up or anything but I have lost my concrete will I had in the past months.  If I serve the kids potato chips I will eat 3 or 4 of them.  I wouldn’t do that a month ago.

So today I am thinking inwardly and trying to find that firm grip I had in the beginning of this because it seems to be the best place for me to be.  I had a goal set to hit the 199 mark before our first camping trip but I seem to be stuck at the 210 mark give or take a touch either side day to day.

So I am searching inward to hold that spark that I held in the start.  Blow a little on it and help it grow once again.  I am still motivated and still want the same things so I am confident that I can build from this.

As always I wish you a wonderful day!
