I saw something on Facebook yesterday that I liked.  It said "Be yourself.  Unless you are an a$$hole, then me someone else."  Well that, right there, says it all doesn't it?  I am having an issue with a friend right now that is upsetting me to no end but I'll deal with it and I'll get on with everything.  Sometimes people are just not who you think they are.  Sad but true I guess. 

Today I am going on an outing with a friend and not playing cards.

Yesterday was such a beautiful day it amazed even me.  I got to swim after the gym and then sit outside talking to lovely people and then I came up and did some chores and had a lovely day.

One week to cruise time!  It'll be really easy to pack because it's just the duck and me so we won't be doing anything too fancy.  Probably.  Eight days, one mid sized suitcase, that's me.

The weight loss ads have started on tv full force.  This happens every year.  They must be making money because they don't stop, do they?  And I just keep plugging along.  I did gain a few pounds between Thanksgiving and Christmas but have lost them again.  

I finished my 10th session with Andre' yesterday so next week I have to pay again for 10 more.  I am really not as sore as I was at first and I am still working hard so it's all good.

So that's it from paradise for today y'all.  Have a lovely Saturday.  I will too.


  1. Buongiorno!
    I wish you a great Saturday...and forget the "friend", perhaps it's better you don't consider him as a friend!
    Or maybe he can understand that you are a friend, and he gains your friendship again...a bit complicated? I love when people ar polite and lovely!

    We have a sunny day...I'm going to walk to the centre..a poor alone centre...but we have to visit it, it must be alive again!

    Big hugs, honey!

  2. I've been laughing at the weight loss ads too, although if I don't keep my mouth closed, I'm gonna need a boatload!
    Have you seen the TV ad for sleeves for flabby arms? Can't remember what they're called, but I about fell out of my chair laughing! It's a real hoot - and yeah, I could use those, too.
    Sorry about friend issues. I had to do some real soul searching last week, just hope I made the right decision.

  3. Doesn't sound like a very good friend honey. Sometimes people aren't who they seem at all. We both experienced that together some years back. I'm sure glad I'm out of that mess. That one person was more than awful, she was nuts.

    Have a fabulous day honey. I'm going on the cruise with you. My best to Roche. ♥♥♥

  4. I saw that 'be yourself thing', too. Darci had it up, I think. Too funny and SO true!

    I'm in cruise withdrawl for sure so I am coming along on yours, if you don't mind. :) I took a single carry-on for my 9 days and still had clothes I didn't wear. Every time I go I seem to take less. I bring jean capris I can wear more than once and they are so comfy. It's what I wear mostly at home.

    Have another wonderful day, if you can stand it. I know I will! big hugs xoxo

  5. Great saying, love it !

    here is one one that I like...
    Be pretty if you can,
    be witty if you must,
    but be gracious if it kills you.

    I also saw a blog that said...
    be yourself ... everyone else is taken

    and the best...
    keep your crazy we're all full

    cheers, parsnip

  6. "keep your crazy, we're all full." Yup ... dat'z wut i say to joba.

  7. Hope the friend issue corrects itself. Sorry about that. Hugs.
    Yup, all the diet and good health intentions start anew, only to be dropped like a hot potato by February. LOL!

    A beautiful day is just tits (as you say). Ain't nuthin' better! God's gift to us.

  8. Hi you beautiful Roche. How is Bee making out today? I hope that you are being a good boy/girl for my wonderful friend Bee.
    Now you see Bee , I can be just as crazy and wonderful like you. Ha,ha,ha. I do hope that you liked my introduction to my comment today?
    Today was a great, the weather was fantastic to go out and buy some great things like shrimp, cheese, crackers, meat, and most important wine. As you can see I'm having my friend Jerry & his wife over tonight. I'm feeling wonderful and I wish that you were her Bee.
    Cruising, cruising, cruising. It's very near my cruising friend. I leave in about a month so I'm really getting excited. I do hope that maybe next year we can cruise again. Have a great day my beautiful, hot friend of mine. See you.

    Cruisin Paul

  9. I'm sure you will get that friend situation straightened out. Life is too short to allow krappola in it.

    Big hugs, honey...

  10. (hides in the corner) I WILL do this again. I spent last night emptying my closet of all the beautiful lovely clothes I bought last winter because I had LOST weight. This year I had to clear them out because I had REGAINED almost all of it back. It was a sad evening, but hopefully the motivation I need. And as a matter of fact, right now I am wearing a beautiful Coldwater Creek cream cardigan that you gave me! <3


you know i love comments, don't be shy! and if you are a spammer that got through, buggers to you. get a life somewhere else!
