    If you can find it - buy Sikkens brand to seal your deck. Its sold at Home Depot here. $46 a gallon - but its supposed to be one of the top on the market. Says it will last 5 years. The cheaper stuff will be gone after a year or 2. That's what we used to seal the garden bed and the pergola. And its really beautiful! We bought Teal colored.

    • Congrats to your son! Sorry about the dog. I know how frustrating that is. Our other dog is possibly sick with the same infection the first dog had so I do NOT want him in our house for fear he'll poop over night. Our dogs also do jot follow the no furniture rule!! Ugh. I hate that. Doesn't help that brad doesn't enforce it. I hate having dog hair on everything.

      We don't plan on keeping the deck forever so we'll probably just go with Thompsons if we do anything with it.

      • HOLY COW BATMAN!!!!! I just pressure washed for 5 hours! and I'm totally exhausted! Hubby called and has 3 boats he needs to look at up at the lake and wants me to go with him tonight and spend the night on the boat. I don't want to........... I'm so stinking tired! I'm gonna see if I can weasel out of it. He sends me this text, "It will be the first night on the boat, I don't want to do that without you!" How can I say no to that? We'll have to take Zeus with us. I'm gonna see if he'll take Joe, one of our employees - that way they can both be working on boats tomorrow - and I won't be sitting there bored to death waiting for him to get done working on boats. Besides I'm filthy from the pressure washing and I just want to take a shower and put on my jammies and relax. If I go with him I'll have to shower and dry my hair, get dressed, pack clothes, pack food, pack stuff to read or something, and then drive 45 minutes to the lake. Its already 6:15, he's not even home yet and we still have to make dinner before we can go. UGH this makes my head spin.

        On the upside - the patio and sidewalk look great - and I thoroughly cleaned Bar-B-Q Central! It was pretty dirty. We have our smoker, the big gas bbq and the Egg charcoal bbq all tucked into this covered 10'x10' space that also has the heat pump in it. There was about 6" of old dried leaves and all kinds of dirt and gunk behind all of that! But now its all clean! Yeah me. I think I've done my workout for the day!

        If I stay home I can finish the pressure washing - still need to do the front walk - and all the patio furniture. Then it will all be done and clean when hubby gets home. If I go to the lake I will sit and waste an entire day doing nothing.

        I'm starting to feel like I'm losing weight I put on a pair of shorts that didn't fit me a couple weeks ago so I know something is changing. My legs are definitely thinner and more toned. I don't have the puffiness in my mid-section and I'm really seeing the muscles in my arms building. I'm climbing stairs faster and easier and don't even need to use the handrail anymore. All good things.! I haven't gone for a walk in a couple months - I should do that.

            • What day and time can expect to see you at my house, pressure washer in tow?

              And you're welcome, in regards to Barre3. I think I might need to have my daughter go to the studio, talk to Sadie, and work out my cut for the new business she's getting.

                EEEK! I hope that's not the problem! He seems to only pee in our bedroom --- but the other day it looked like he had "dribbled" while standing next to hubby outside. I guess I should take him to the vet. I will do a little online research in the meantime.

                  If I could lift the thing into the back of my SUV I would

                  Today............ driveway and front porch and all the patio furniture. And if I can get up the courage to get on the roof I will do the cover over BBQ Central and maybe clean some gutters while I'm up there. I try to get hubby to clean the gutters when he takes down the Christmas lights...... but it doesn't always happen.

                  Oh - and I didn't go to the lake with hubby. I convinced him to go up this morning instead. I'm waiting for a text to tell me he's there. I worry when he drives long distances without me................ lost my dad in a car accident so its just a fear I can't shake.

                  I'm gonna do Barre3 this morning before I get started on the outside stuff. One really good thing about doing the Barre3 -- it makes me vacuum more often cuz I hate getting down on the floor and getting animal hair on my black cloths!

                  • Make sure you clean up any urine in the house reaaallly well. Dogs can smell the old spots and will revisit them. My family has an area of ruined hardwood floor that their dog peed on many times and the wood is totally destroyed (they are planning on refinishing/replacing the floor anyway). It looks like a dog might've peed in that spot before they owned the house and now their dog is going in the same spot.

                      • Use vinegar in your carpet cleaner to totally neutralize the smell. Do NOT use ammonia! We had a cat doing the same thing growing up and were told to use ammonia, but that backfired b/c there's ammonia in urine, so the cat kept peeing there. Vinegar is an excellent neutralizer - as is baking soda.

                        • I'm having a little magnesium induced "flush" this morning I decided last night since I hadn't had a good cleaning of the pipes it might be safe to take a dose of the liquid mag. I guess I didn't really need it. I'm looking for good dietary sources of magnesium.

                          Spinach was at the top of the list! 100 grams = more than I need!
                          1/2 cup almonds = 48% of daily needs.
                          6 oz of Halibut = 46%
                          Dark Chocolate (29 grams/1 sq)= 24%

                          After my whole30 I'll be adding in the almonds and dark chocolate daily - if I can tolerate them.

                          • Just wanted to say that A.) pressure cleaning is HELLA addictive. We had a little pressure
                            cleaner from Home Depot that I used... a LOT. Loved it. It's like erasing the cement... so fun
                            to see all the dirt and grime go down the driveway. Unfortunately it broke (the cleaner) a couple
                            of months ago... but fortunate for me because I think I was getting addicted!

                            B.) GOOD ON YOU for being so fantastic with your workouts and food! Yeah!

                            I recently quit my gym membership. Just wasn't feeling it anymore and I have all the weights
                            and stuff I need here, to do all I want for my body without paying 30 dollars a month. So I may
                            give that Barre3 a whirl, or that tap thing someone was talking about... hmmm forgot the name.

                            The most curious thing, is that since quitting the gym and just concentrating on my walking (i walked
                            250 miles last month! yikes!) I've lost more "weight" (could be all muscle, who knows) than I ever
                            have, trying to concentrate on lifting and regimens and all that. Just totally relaxed with it and look
                            what happens. Guess I was overtraining, yet again. Sigh.

                            Anyway, back to you, you, you! You're doing great! I'm very proud of you! Yay!!!!

                            • Julia! Nice to hear from you again! And congrats on the NO BOOZE thing. I'm in the first trimester of my whole30 - okay I'm on day 11 - so booze has been a no-no -- but I've cheated a little. Overall my rum intake has GREATLY reduced and there is something great to be said for that!

                              As for workouts --- I so prefer to do mine at home where I don't have to be self-conscious or anything. I'm loving Barre3 as I've said a bazillion times already. And its REALLY changing this old gals bod! My bicepts are huge!!! For the first time in my adult life I can do push-ups! I can actually do about 5 push-ups - although I don't go all the way down - just 1/2 way. I'll work on the other half when I feel stronger in my core. And I do the guy kind I'm also up to an easy 30 second full plank. I'm loving feeling stronger! My diet and exercise have kicked the fibro out the door! I'm also getting into clothes I haven't been able to wear for a long time. It will be really fun to see what to scales have to show at the end of my whole30. If I'm well pleased I will stay on the path for another whole30.

                              Stick around and let me what happening.

                              • Julie, I think you're thinking of T-Tapping. No idea what it is, but that's what I thought of when you said tapping.
