Hi Michelle, hi everyone. I had a good Christmas, hope you did, too!! I wish I could take a nap, though. Sarah wants to play with her clay while Matthew's napping, so I can't talk much. Just wanted to say 'hi' while I eat a quick lunch.
Does anyone want to brag on their presents? I got a watch I had wanted and Pride and Prejudice on DVD. And two toasters. :dizzy:

Still not a very busy day on here today.
Hi Tracey-I'll brag a little for ya. I got a scrapbooking cd, some elmo jammies, the Garfield movie, and a new bathroom scale from my dh. For my dad/stepmom I got an Old Navy sweatshirt and $50. My cousin Laura gave us some movie passes and a $50 Target gift card. We opened gifts with dh's family and my other family half yesterday. My mom got me the book Purpose Driven Life and the journal that goes with the book and some Corning Serving bowls. My sister got me that pac man game that plugs in to the tv and a Tommy Hilfiger shirt. And my sil got us some Rubbermaid storage containers. My other sil got me a gift card for Micheal's Craft store.
I stayed op throughout most of yesterday. I stayed away from the treats, with the exception of a choc. chip cookie and a piece of fudge. I was having a hard day. I got into it with my ex when I dropped Tiana off out there about how bad he's treating the dog we used to share together. I was very upset and crying. I cried all the way back into town. It was too much for me to take I guess. I just wish I knew what to do. She is so old (14 yrs. old) and I think it would be best for her to be euthanized. She's not enjoying life anymore and he doesn't pay any attention to her. He makes her sleep outside because his wife doesn't want doghair in the house. It wouldn't be so bad but she doesn't have a doghouse or a anything to sleep on but the cold hard ground underneath their mobile home. I should have just taken her when we had got divorced. It's hard for me in instantences like this to define the post-divorce boundary. Whether I should just leave it alone or tell him how I feel. I don't know.
Well I guess I better get on with the day. The house really looks like a tornado went through here. Cardboard, paper, and all those stupid little wires that they strap the toys to the boxes with. AAARRGGGHHHH! Plus I have a challenge to do today. I have relaxed a bit the last couple days-time to get back with the program.

Hey there girls!!! It sounds like ya'll had a wonderful Christmas! I too got a new scale, but it says I'm 5 lbs heavier than my current scale so I'm using my old scale to finish up the challenge then switching to my new one. No loss for me this week but I did maintain!! wooo hooo!! thats a blessing in itself since it was the holiday!
Anyway I have a few pics to share really quick

Well, we had a good Christmas here. Except that I have a horrible cold, and oldest ds has the flu. In fact after we opened presents, he went into the bathroom and was on the toilet. He yelled for me, and dh went in there and came back out He was like"sweetheart, Eric really needs you" I go in there, and It looked like a scence from the exorcist. That is one present I wouldn't want again. Anyway, besides being sick, we are doing pretty good. Have a great week. For me its back on track with eating.

Wow!! It sounds like you all had a great Christmas!! I had a wonderful one as well. My favorite gift I got was a stereo from my MIL and her husband. The one I had broke. My kids made out great. Between the 2 of the girls they got 15 new outfits!! My husband brought our son a 3ft fire truck that does anything and everything a real fire truck does. He's only 2 1/2 but he loves fire trucks! You ladies all have a lovely night..
