I waited to click post earlier, so missed some posts!

Becky - sounds like the end of physical excuses, absolutely!

Allison - are these people on DD's FB page and might have seen you pics?

Jessica - I'm so glad that you like the dog sitter, that will make your trip easier.

Allison, I agree with bargoo's theory. How much do your kids look like you and DH? I've had friends instantly know who my parents are. My mom, I understand, I really take after her. My dad, I don't, but apparently there is a closer resemblance than I see. But people know. I don't have to introduce them.

I know for a fact that the girl has seen me post stuff to DD's FB page, so I totally understand that (I kind of even knew who she was). The percussionist, although they are friends on FB, I've never seen him post on her page, but there is the possibility that he has perused her page and seen me. The father of the other recitalist? Nope. No way he could know who we were--that one really has me thrown for a loop.

In other news, I'm meeting the veterinary oncologist Friday. The cancer did spread to Chico's lymph node.

I'm going to be under my red line for the first time this month by the weekend.
I am going to do this!

Dagmar, good news on being under the redline. I think you can do anything you set your mind to. Keep up the good work.

I'm so sorry about Chico, Allison.

Dagmar - awesome news!

kittycat40 - What a steal! I hear so much about Bikram yoga. I should try it.

127.5 this morning. Under my "mental block" line and it doesn't even feel hard to get and be here. My uncle is recovering from bone marrow transplant surgery - he's been violently ill for weeks now. I really, really hope it will work. Myeloma killed my mom's sister-in-law and I'd hate to see my dad's brother go that same route.

It is really quite awesome what they are able to do medically compared to past years. Praying for the best outcome for your uncle.

it just appeared in my inbox... amazon.local.com or something like it. Too easy- they had my credit card on file. Makes spending money way too easy. Often, I use the opportunity to pull out my cc card info as a re-think/slow down/don't be so impulsive kind of period...

but it seemed exactly like what I've been looking for....

Allison, and Krampus, I'm also so very sorry. Hoping for the best outcomes all around.

I tend to use Groupon and LivingSocial mostly for reduced-price spa services. I'm getting way too accustomed to a good life of low-priced Upstate NY facials, pedicures and massages, which I've been using to try to take care of myself during stressed-out periods. I feel like a wealthy man's pampered wife. Right now I'm typing this with nicely manicured, gel-polished nails. This gel polish is now on its third day & shows no signs of wear, when usually I destroy nail polish within hours of my manicure. So I am recommending gel polish to everyone. Ah, nails -- they're one of the subjects in girly-ness in which I've always been an utter failure.

This morning, I had a decent weigh-in, as I thought I might, as my ankles showed nearly no fluid retention when I went to bed last night. It's still higher than I'd wish for, but that's without measuring, weighing or counting calories all week, so I think it's realistic.

I did gels for about a year, and they do look really, really nice for a full two weeks. And if they do chip, the salon usually fixes it for you for free. That said, the process to remove them isn't fun. It's time consuming and it often includes some rather nasty work on the nail to get the stuff off. In short, it has made my nails a lot weaker. Currently, I'm able to get a gel manicure once, have them on for two to three weeks and then I have to allow my nails to grow out again before doing gels again--about a 5 or 6 week process. I'm almost considering going back to fake nails because my nails keep tearing.

I wore fake nails for years. silk, acrylic, whatever when I stopped using them my nails were a mess, thin and they would split but eventually they grew out and now I have pretty decent looking real nails.
