Good mornin' all. Been MIA for a few days...we are still trying to get the blinkedy blank hardwood flooring installed. Still have 89 rows left, but who's counting.
RNMOM - Your plan for the holidays is perfect. If you know that you will be tempted too much to follow the program perfectly, you are better to plan to eat properly most of the time and allow youself a few treats now and then. Getting back with the program after Christmas will get you to the same end without feeling guilty for 'cheating' throughout the Christmas season. But moderation on the bad foods is the key. WTG.
Mama - Have a great day. Take care.
ellis - Mornin' ellis. Talk later...
Bamiegurl - I haven't started my Christmas decorating yet, either. We are in such a mess with laying flooring and I don't want to drag stuff out before the sawdust gets cleaned up. Hopefully, we will be starting later this week and have most done by the weekend...just in the nick of time. Good luck on getting yours down from the shelf. Snow flurries...congrats, I think. We have a lot of snow right now, but the temps aren't too bad. The forecast is to go to +6 tomorrow. So much for the skating rink, I guess.
Ruth - I haven't checked in for a few days, but was thinking about Hersh this past weekend. Hope that she gets better soon...this has been going on for a while now.
lc - Good to hear from you. Hopefully you will be slowing down soon and be able to enjoy some of the Christmas season with family. Don't stress too much and don't go so hard that you get sick. Take care of yourself.
anchor - Don't frett about the molds. I just had them done for a splint, too (plus another crown). Once they get them pried off, it isn't too bad.
I grind my teeth at night, so the splint has been really good...I have also found that I don't snore as much with it.
Good luck tonight. Hope everything goes well.
cac - WTG on the race. You are such an inspiration.
Laurie - You are sooooo busy. WTG on getting the wrapping done. I peter out before midnight hits, so don't get as much done as I would like. Tonight, though, DH said it will be a midnighter to try to get the floor finished. We are really at a standstill in the house until we can get that done. Just keeping the rest of the house tidy is a chore...then with the sawdust to add to it. the mess is overwhelming. I think tonight will be one of the late ones, though
Kierie - Take the weight loss one day at a time. You have a good plan for managing the special occasions and it will work for you. WTG.
Me - I woke up to a horrific headache this morning. I couldn't figure out what it is from, then remembered that I was eating some desserts on Sunday at an open house, then got into some baking samples at a bake exchange yesterday. It has been so long since I have had any sugar, that I am sure it must be from that. But, still have the Christmas luncheon today with the boss, so there will be more sugar with that. After that, it is Phase 1 til Christmas Eve...I must do this.
Have to take the spoiled brat that lives in our house to the vet tomorrow.
The very first Christmas card that arrived this year was to her from Dr. Bob... Can you tell that he gets lots of business from us?
I can't believe that I started this post at 7:30 this morning... It has been a wild day today and I didn't even get my exercising in. Oh well, it's home now to more hardwood floor installing.
Have a great evening everyone. Talk tomorrow.
