Good morning everyone. Just checking in for a quick hello this morning.
Kim - So sorry to hear about your mom. Just take one day at a time and concentrate on healing - both your body and your spirit. Sending you hugs. Take care.
Ruth - Have fun packing the baskets. We didn't have time to do that this year since we were finishing the flooring in the bedroom and it is something that we love to do. We are going to go out a couple nights this week and deliver hampers, though. Do people look in your oven when they visit? In mine, they would probably find some dirty dishes, but if they are that inquisitive, they can clean them too.
Barb - Congrats on the weight loss. WTG especially before Christmas. Enjoy the snow...and if you want anymore, I'll be happy to send some. I'll avoid sending the yellow snow from the backyard, though.
anchor - Will be thinking of you today and hope that everything goes smoothly in court. Once that worry is over, it will be easier to relax and enjoy the Christmas season. Good luck...
Me - Not much with me, other than still cleaning up our reno mess and trying to get stuff finished for Christmas. Hopefully, the cleaning will be finished tonight and we can start to decorate tomorrow. However, I have to go to the hockey game tomorrow with one of our vendors, and the following night is a romantic dinner with DH. He's taking me to the faculty club at the university and their food is always sooooo good.
I can't believe the weight situation, either. I have tried to be fairly controlled with my eating, but I have snacked on sweets at some point everyday. BUT, the weight keeps coming off. I lost another half pound yesterday and didn't even get to the track. I will go to the track today to make sure that I don't gain any of the lost weight. I am now at a point where I don't want to be losing great amounts of weight, so I will need to be careful that I don't overdo the weightloss. I have left myself a few pounds that I can lose, but the plan was to lose them slowly now over 6 or seven month, not in one week. Oh well, I just may have to add more starch to the diet, that seems to slow the weight loss down.
Hope everyone is having a good week. Don't stress out too much this week, Christmas will come whether you are prepared, or not.
