Re: automated eating tracker

Soprano - you so know me! I think the kick in the butt + empathy - both can work, yes! :-) Pinkie - Not super sure. Until August, I kept my nose pretty squeaky clean (hence my siggy saying I'm not sure what's going on). I think August is a great example of how discouragement can spiral into the WTH ...

If we could just work with this space, and stay put, I think you are so right that it will be less stressf...

Still costs $700, but much less than a new roof, which supposedly we can get another 10 or 15 y...

Well Pinkie and Linda - now I think both Sexy and I are feeling kind of .... reluctant .... to plunge into the stress and extra work involved of house selling and buying. However, I think we are in agreement that we need to get this laminate done, and then we have several other projects to work on. ...

She didn't even think I should repaint all the interior - that instead I could just wash it. Anyway, for th...

But we really need an office space, since both of us work so much from home. And we feel like our neighborhood is go...

Very cute about the kids and the pedometers. When my 14 year old wears one, I am always shocked at how many steps he gets. Must do a lot of restless movement!

Pinkie - do those headbands make you extra hot though? I haven't been wanting to pull my hair off my forehead because of fear of a burn, too. So my hair has just been floppy-floppy-floppy this summer.

My hedges are officially beautiful, shaped like elephants. Haha just kidding. But I am making good progress.
