Just had to share this with the group. I've overheard my 8 year old grandson using the word "lubs" a few times but didn't know what he was talking about. I went out to the kitchen last night and found him and his 10 year old sister weighing things on my kitchen scale. He told her "16 makes one lub on this scale. In school we count that 16 ounces makes one pound." When I told him lb. means pound and it comes from the word libra which was a measurement in ancient Rome he said, "That's STUPID!"
Judi, I got a good laugh reading what the thesaurus has for motivation. LOL Don't let 'em scare ya--I haven't had to use the whip yet--I just keep it as a threat. But I'm just waiting Mike to slip up really badly and I'll crack...well, never mind...he'll find out in due time.
Joanna, welcome back!
A 5 lb. gain on your trip is minimal and I know you'll work that off quickly. Your avatar is lovely, by the way.
Hope I really did nearly kill DH with kindness many years ago when we were first married and he came home drunk after a night out with the guys. I was so worried about him and didn't know where to find him and cried with relief when he came home. Then I catered to his needs (just two regular beers makes him sick to his stomach) until he felt like a real louse. I should be ashamed to admit it, but I'd do it again.
Hmm, Quinn said a squirrel threw acorns at her the other day. Maybe they really do since Hope said they were throwing nuts at yoga students.
Nobe, aw, I thought DH was going to take the trolls home early. Enjoy those two weeks while they're at camp!
Mike, so sorry your vacation isn't going well.
Kudos to all who are doing well and hugs of encouragement to those who aren't.
