Sandra, I am SO sorry for the loss of your MIL. I'm thankful that she seems to have gone peacefully. Sometimes, it's all we can hope for. I wish I could be there to give you and Curtis a huge bunch of
. Just try to be as good as you can on program. It's going to be very hard for you for the next couple of days. It made me smile when you talked about 30 points being so high. That's what I'm allowed every day on Flex! Congratulations on your archery contracts. How exciting that an 11/12 fit perfectly! I agree with whomever suggested alterations on the brown dress. If you love the dress, why not? That kitty story you told me was amazing! I told Jim and he was shocked!
Frouf, I just read about your MIL's behavior at Thanksgiving. I know how you feel about your own Mom. I would have felt the same way. Has DH heard anything more about the new job? I'm so very glad to hear that you are getting help at work AND that your car is paid off! Woo Hoo!!! I hope someone takes over the gym. I had one close completely once and I never got any money back nor did I have a place to exercise. As for the cruise, my vote is for you to go....absolutely go....and sign up soon before you have buyers regret when all the window cabins are gone! I hope you are having a great breakfast with your GF right at this very moment. Can we pretty please with pink frosting on top see some of your cruise pictures? I still don't know what you look like!
Melissa, I sure hope you are feeling better by now and that your party last night was a huge successful venture. Did you ever figure out why you had the hives?
Paula, I'm so glad you enjoyed your pampering. I think all Moms should do this more. RICE is rest, ice, compression, and elevation. I'm wrapping it every day and resting and elevating it as much as my life will allow me. I still haven't iced it even though it makes it feel better. I'm much better at taking care of other people. How was the circus? Did Sarah enjoy it?
Angela, what's new? How'd the bread baking go? It is one of my fondest memories that I have with my Big Sister. I bet your girls will still be talking about it when they are 50...just like me! How's your program going. I need some inspiration.
Jennifer, where are you? We haven't heard from you in a while. I was thinking about you when former White Sox great Magglio Ordonez sent the Tigers to the World Series last night. How exciting was that? I was tearing up a bit just watching. I want the AL Central to win the WS again.
Rhonda, I'm just going back through the whole thread for last week. You sound SO determined and motivated. I just know you are going to be successful. I'm convinced that success can come partially from not just giving up after a slip or two but rather from just getting right back on program at the next meal. You are doing great. Did you get those papers graded and reports done?
Kathy, huge congratulations to Shaun! You must be very proud. And also congratulations to your Brother. I hope the adoption goes through for them this time. I'm relieved to hear that your Mom is recovering well. Lots of good news in your life.
Vivian, great job on getting almost all of your gain back off so quickly. Often it takes more than one week.
Yawaii, Welcome to our little corner of the world! How are you doing on program?
Barb, Welcome to you too! How's it going? I need to hear some Core success stories. Please share!
Elana, I hope you didn't hurt yourself too badly. I'm still suffering for my insane pool exercise. The Doctor says probably at least two more weeks for me.
Ok chicks.....I'm finally caught up. I'm going to go eat breakfast and make a menu thread. I wish the Core lurkers would at least post a menu even if they don't want to post on the chat thread. I could use some inspiration.
