Just a place you can share about anything.  I hope you are all having a good day.
 
 
At the end of Chapter 3 there was lots of talk about DONUTS.  (I sound like Homer Simpson)... thanks a bunch, gang.  Well, I want you to know I didn't eat a single one of 'em today!!!
 
My total calorie count was only...&$#% for the day!    (I didn't tell you, 'cause I didn't want to brag...heheheh
You know I'm going to be raiding the fridge in the middle of the night.
 
See you tomorrow...

You know what bugs me.

I want to buy the new Kia Forte Koup SX. The problem that I have (btw I'm a car nut), is that they don't offer the new GDI 2.4L engine in their Forte Koup. However, the Koup does come with it's own 2.4L engine, however it's an older design. The new GDI has been out 2-3 years ago.

WHY THE F.... don't they put that new GDI engine in the koup. It's more fuel efficient, more powerful and lighter than the old one.

And if they don't want to put that engine in, why don't they put the turbocharged 2.0L engine. Even smaller and much more powerful.

What in the world is going on?!?! I wish I could speak with Kia designers, grrrr.

Wow, Dude... you know more about cars than I do, that's for sure.
Sounds like you'll have to build it yourself.

All we have are a 10 year old Chevy van and a 30 year old Cadillac!

I would like an old caddy Joyce. They are gas hogs, but they sure are nice. Vintage, I guess. We are thinking about getting a newer car. Truck I should say. We have to have four wheel drive up here. I have a 2000 silverado extended cab and I love it. But it is getting time to trade it in, though I don't know if we will. But we have been putting a lot of money into it lately. So I think I would like to trade it in for a 2005 or so. But he wants to put more money into it because it has been a good truck. Dependable...

I hope that you all have a nice day.

Take care, love this thread...

Hugs, Karen

I was waiting for the new thread to start because I didn't want to get "lost".

The wedding was great this past weekend. Been walking, went to yoga Tuesday. I don't think I like the guy I told ya'll about from the dating site.... he asks inappropriate questions and is pushy. I did meet a friend's roommate and I think we really hit it off. I told him straight up that I dated a girl for two years and it didn't phase him. So, at least I have found some acceptance. We will see if anything happens... I have been content spending time alone.

Been going back to the weird dreams lately though. Not as horrific as before, now they are just weird... Like ex being present in places/events of my very young childhood. One day, I'll meet a dream interpreter :)

Pottery class tonight & then dinner with a friend who has also struggled with depression for about two years now. She's having a rough day and I know it will make her feel better to have plans and get out of the house.

I hate the word money right now. I need to spend it and save it and earn it and yuck yuck yuck... just found out I'm in a wedding in three months. That WASN'T on my financial plan.

Hopefully I get a tax return quickly.

Courtney

ps... have not been getting emails when anyone replies... anyone else having this problem?

Maybe something got clicked so that you don't receive them. Or maybe you have to click on it now. Sometimes Peter changes things on the forum like that. I don't receive emails, but I choose not to as I am on the site so much.

I am glad you had a good time at the wedding. You are doing great Courtney...

Good morning.
Another week has gone by.
My pre-checkup diet is going well. Got lots of fruits yesterday (strawberries, clementines, and cantaloupe). Munching on those has helped.

After cutting and wedging (and eating) the cantaloupe I remembered there had been an e-coli alert...and the skin should be scrubbed before cutting with a knife. Ugh, I didn't do that. Hope the disease has been erased... or maybe I will be!

Perhaps I should just go back to DONUTS!

That is a good enough excuse I reckon Joyce. I love donuts. But they stick to me like glue... I like the chocolate covered cream filled long johns.... Yum... Or bismarks I don't care as long as it has cream and chocolate. lol... I use to be hooked on cream cheese filled ones.

Ladies, all this donut talk when I am on a diet!!! I have lost two pounds, but I think it's probably water weight.

I like the chocolate covered ones. Do ya'll like kolatches? I'm not sure if I spelled that right, but they are soooooo good!

Very rainy here today. Richard stopped by this morning before I left for work. I met him through a friend and he is very kind. He doesn't give me too much attention which is good for me. I sitll need to take care of myself and if someone were to pay too much attention too soon, I may fall into bad habits.

I have to find a formal gown this weekend for the Mardi Gras ball next weekend. I'm bartending Saturday and will most likely go to a Superbowl party on Sunday although I don't care about the game.

Whenever you have a chance, go to www.thecolorrun.com. Richard and me are going to run in Dallas on the 18th.... I whole weekend date. I'm sure ill be nervous when it gets closer, but I'm so excited about the race!

Good Morning...it's Sunday, and nobody 'chatted' yesterday. Probably not much today, either...with the super bowl and all.

I noticed in the supermarket yesterday, every shopping basket seemed full of party preparation.

My son will be coming to share dinner and the TV with us later today. In the mean time I'm making a banana cream pie. We're also having Chili, which John will cook.

oops... John just woke up (he sleeps later than I do). CUL

Good morning Joyce,

I went shopping for super bowl yesterday too. Got some goodies to nibble on. My girlfriend went with me so it was more fun.

The weekends get kind of slow here sometimes. I am always on though. here and there.

I hope that you have a good day. Enjoy that banana cream pie and chili... Yum!!!

Well, in 45 minutes I leave for a blood test. Have to fast...that means no coffee! (except a sip or two of black only). Not a fun way to start my morning.

Will not be posting again 'till later this afternoon.

I usually don't get on during the weekend because I sit in front of huge computers all day during the week for work. I like my break.

Don't think I'm doing too great with the diet. Grandma J, hope your blood test goes well.

Anyone have ideas for dieting?? If I eat bread, it's always whole wheat. Same with pasta.

Need to paint my nails. So sleepy at work. Early bed tonight!

Hi Courtney,

The forum has been really slow lately. I guess everybody is out in about or under the weather. I am so glad that you posted. I am glad that you check in with us.

I hope that everybody is having a good day today... I am off shopping. Got laundry done today. Yay!!!

Hugs, Karen

Hope everyone is doing well! Mags, you are only as old as you let yourself feel! I tell my mom that all the time with my 12 year old brother- she is 52. I was so excited earlier this week-- I was able to get ALL Laundry detergent for $2.75/bottle so I bought 13 bottles. I know, that seems extreme, but I refuse to pay more than $3 for detergent PLUS I bring some to my sister at college and my mom in New Orleans.

Need to paint my nails for the ball this weekend... I'm such a messy painter. Hope to hear from everyone soon!
