Good by Oct Hello Nov

Wednesday, November 06, 2019

Oct is now in the history books The month started out still waiting to see if the mouse would reappear thank goodness it never appeared in the house and no mouse poop. Did find two out side by the bait trap.
The lavender must be working none in the basement. Traps empty and no poop.
Tom figured out when I am going to Denver.

Two days latter with dinner in the oven the top and bottom element flared up and burned out. A shopping trip to Lowe’s and I had a new Whirlpool range set to arrive in week . Once it I slowly figured out how to use it. Still at times forget which burner is which the burners the use circles in a square which is front and back decided to mark then is tape for a while after I burned the burners covers
I did go thought a slip on Spark trail when I did not have a range with visits to fast food places and Micro wave meals which in my book are awful mushy and tasteless
Thankful to be back on track. Did find a couple of pounds. The scales will be on the move now I have planned my meals and have my fitness plan posted where I can see it.
I have a goal of 5 pounds by Dec 18.2019. why did I pick this date? It’s the day I head to Denver.
I going to have to put my big girl out fit on, since Tom no longer works at the airport (Bose closed its air port stores in Aug.) I will need to get my self from the concourse to baggage claim dragging my suite case ,strength training will be a huge help.
I know how to get to train in the lower level of the concourse .
my Big task is I need to get me and my suit case on the moving side walk then two escalators to the train. Thankful I can’t get on the wrong train! you just need follow the crowd and move quick so you don’t get told to please move quick you are delaying the departure of the train for baggage claim. Rush off the train and head up the two escalators to the terminal and family meeting area .Find Tom in the group and give him my suit case for the journey to the car.
Like Spark Guy says all our goals are not always attached to us reaching our weight loss goal.

Here are a few pictures I found on the inter net of the under ground train . I will take on the return trip challenge when I packing to return home .

Happy Nov Thanks for stopping by and remember we can do it we just need to believe we can emoticon

    Great blog to read, Fran. I'm glad your new stove is working out so well for you. You'll love doing your Christmas baking in it's oven!

    How long will you be staying at Tom's? You'll do fine, ask for and take all the help you can, to get there safe and sound!

    Do you and Tom go to different places/do different things on this Christmas get together? Don't forget photos, they are so nice for us to see!

    I have also had to learn how to do this in various airports. I get a little stressed but things always work out. Good luck.

    glad that you have no more 'visitors' and a new oven! Nice.

    Sounds like you really do need strength training to deal w/your luggage!

    Hugs and here's to a successful November !

    So much fun knowing your date to go and visit Tom for Christmas. Great incentive for the weeks leading up to the trip because, let's face it, time can really fly when you have something to look forward to, especially with all the baking I know you'll want to get done before you leave! Have fun and enjoy! emoticon

    Glad you started November with no mice emoticon
    Happy you got a new oven and can cook better meals for you and Racey. You will get those extra pounds off for sure emoticon Good to have those plans in place. I got rid of the Halloween candy we had, had a hard time having it in the house for some reason emoticon
    Will be different meeting Tom, I sure hope all goes well. Glad you are researching and will know what to do when you get there. Will be fun adventures with Tom, I know you look forward to those.

    There is an easier and safer option. Locate an elevator. Avoid using the escalators when you are moving through the airport with your luggage. You'll be carrying homemade cookies, and gifts, and bulky winter clothes. Those airport carts are handy if you have more than one suitcase. I know I prefer an elevator because I don't travel light.

    I understand Fran - October was a crazy month for me too... I"m so glad you're not dealing with the mouse anymore... I'm sure your trip will go fine. Do as much research as you can beforehand - that's what I usually do - and don't be afraid to ask an airport official for help if you need it. Also, I will pray for your trip, Fran! Is Racey staying with his other Mom while you're away? emoticon emoticon
