Good Morning, Chickies~~
Well, all the company has left. Cousin Bill and Uncle Justin came Sunday and stayed overnight, then left yesterday, taking Aunt Sally with them, back to Huntsville. And we took DD and SIL to the airport last night. I'll miss them all, but truthfully, I'm sort of glad for the quiet.
My two DD's do NOT get along at all, which just kills me. And any other year, I'd have eaten myself into a coma from the stress, but this year I did really well. Stepped on the scale this morning and NO GAIN!!! Although there were a few glitches, such as a serving of tiramisu for dessert.
Another happy note: DD from LA dragged me out shopping, said she couldn't stand looking at me in my old jeans another instant...and I'm down TWO SIZES! From an 18 to a 14!!
Remember the jeans debate thread? Well, let me tell you, the real secret for those of us with fluffy middles is to not try and squash all that fluff into highwaisted jeans. Instead, get the low-rise jeans that sit on the hipbones.
Another thing that I'd been guilty of is buying straight legged jeans instead of flares or bootcut. That's much more flattering. I actually look like I've lost weight now.
Welcome back Cottage by the sea and Welcome DollyofOz.
Well, I need to get my shower and head out to the gym. Work is going to be really slow. Dr. D's brother in India had a massive stroke, so he flew over to be with him and closed the practice for the week. I'll only have my regular folks coming in this week. Guess I'll be able to catch up on my knitting!
You Chicks have a great day on the Beach!
