Suzan..Salmon sure sounds good! We'll have to get some more in a couple of weeks. Sounds like it was a nice relaxing weekend for you.

Ruth..Nice weather was good enough for you to walk the trails! Pizza sounds good too!

Ann..Sure hope that cold goes away faster now!! with the milkshake..Suzan with salmon..Ruth with gals are sure making me jealous!! LOL

My weekend was busy. Friday was bday gifts shopping. Saturday was family bday dinner at P.F. Changs. Sunday was SS school & church and out to dinner to Longhorn Steakhouse for another family bday dinner. Good restaurants and I couldn't eat!! Had to bring my own boring diet foods with me!! So tired of this!! Must stay strong though. We also had sleet, ice & snow for a cold weekend. Next weekend will be warmer!

Well, the weekend is over.  I tried to post Friday and yesterday, but log in problems . . . . . won't say any more on that.

Friday, we were still in Florida and went to practice at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.  It was a nice day and fun to walk around and watch the cars and see Tampa Bay . . . That night we just hung out in our room watching basketball, packed and had pizza delivered for dinner.

Saturday we left bright and early for the long drive home.  We got home in time to watch my basketball team but they lost. 

Today, we went to church and out for breakfast with friends.  I've been doing laundry and putting stuff away all day. (In between watching basketball games.)

I'm just gonna add a whine here - I don't wanna go back to work tomorrow!  But I'll get over it.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. I'll try to post (if I can log in) and catch up during the week.

Yes, Shamrock shakes are mint shakes McDonalds has every March. We always try to go there at least once during March to have one.

As for my cold, it's now a raging ear infection. I went to the walk-in clinic here in town and the doc said it's one of the reddest ear canals she's seen in awhile.  I'm on some antibiotic for it. Hope it works soon.  And, wouldn't you know it, just as I finished up there, my eye started to burn and itch! It's so red now, I'm wondering if it's conjuctivitis! If it doesn't get better by tomorrow, I guess I'll have to call my doc to have her look at it.  Wish it had bothered me this much when I was seeing the doc for my ear!  Sheesh, it's always something!  Hope you shake off the rest of your cold soon. 5.5 weeks is a long time to feel lousy!

I hope you get feeling better real soon Ann,,  I'm going on 5.5 weeks now and while MUCH better (no more flu) I still have the dumb head cold and feeling lousy,,, hoping you get rid of yours quicker.     

shamrock shakes,, that sounds interesting.. did it have mint in it or something to make it green?  Don't think they had it over here, will have to check it out.

Hi Ruth, pizza sounds like dinner to me too Ruth.  We went out for pizza at lunch so we're not so hungry tonight therefore I'll make hot dogs.  The salmon will have to be baked tomarrow LOL

Sounds like you're getting in a lot of walking,, that's good: very healthy... and fun in the nice weather.

Not a lot of fun here. My cold is hanging on - I was hoping with all the remedies I was throwing at it, it would have left, but it's being persistent.  And having the weather be so cold isn't helping.

I did some grocery shopping today and later dh and I went to get some Shamrock Shakes at McDonalds. Tomorrow looks like a slow day, just doing the usual stuff.

Hi Pat, thank you for stepping in to post this thread,, I'm having sign and then stay in and then replying problems lately, not sure why all of a sudden again,, but alas.....

Take it easy Pat, grab some downtime whenever you can....  housework will get done when it does. There's only the 2 of you,,,, (like us,,,) so not as much of a mess LOL


As for me, Saturdday is over and we had to do grocery shopping, in the afternoon it snowed so we stayed in, dh went off to the fish market and bought a huge 12 lb salmon (it's sliced and frozen now), then we took naps and then went out to dinner.

Sunday, nothing planned (should snow again). 

So, thal's all for me.....  am reading a James Patterson book so I need to really "get into it"!

Have a nice weekend everyone.....  OH tonight we set the clocks ahead......
