I will "share," Snowflake. I am really excited about trying them. I tried to get each one different so I can decide which ones I will want to order more of later. I love cupcakes, regular cakes, and cookies!!!

You are right about CM3/SPBW. She looks especially beautiful when she is with those she loves! I love the pics of her in her wedding gown! Just beautiful!

Not any big weekend plans except to do some laundry and to continue organizing. It's about time! I now feel so great physically that I need to take advantage without overdoing it! Slow but steady wins the race, unless you are on the tracks "frequented" by Made and Coach, of course!!!

CM3, thanks for saying that. You are beautiful!! And should put your own pics on FB too, I love the ones you've shared with us, especially the ones of you & your sister, and you & your furkids. You look so happy

What are your plans for the weekend?

My sister may drive to Eau Claire tomorrow if the weather is nice. I would love to see her, and just have sister time. Fingers are crossed.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!!

How is your mom feeling today? Neuropathy is no fun whatsoever!!!

The doctor said that she was really weak on the right side and wanted to make sure she didn't have a stroke. So they did a CT scan and it came back okay. She was never slurring her speech or anything so I never really thought it was a stroke to begin with. So the ER doctor called and set her up an appointment with a neurologist for tomorrow morning. I never thought it was a stroke to begin with. She never slurred her speech or anything. I'm pretty sure it's Diabetic neuropathy but I guess we will see what the doctor says tomorrow.

How incredibly sweet that was of them AND of YOU!!! I am sure that YOU think it is part of your job, but to me, that's being a blessing to someone else! It reminds me about gift-giving. Homemade gifts are wonderful and more special, most of the time, than store-bought ones. Don't you know how you feel when your kids do something special for you? Right now, none of my kids could monetarily afford to get me anything; but a phone conversation honestly makes my day! In addition, my kids are so respectful that my pride sometimes gets in my way! I better watch that!

Something I did forget to share on here but I did have a couple come into my job on Sunday and I was helping them gather items for a garden and giving them tips on different things. The wife is waiting on a matched donor for a kidney. The told me about a blog they have for her and gave me the website. When I went onto to read about it they mentioned me in it and said how nice and helpful I was. That made my day!!! It is nice to be appreciated, isn't it?!

In general I felt awful all the time and getting ill very easily, not just from working out. That has never been the norm for me. I stayed on a work out routine for over 5 years and always felt great but this time around it lingered on for a long time so I froze my gym membership for several months and worked on a few things with my health in a holistic manner (it would take forever to list everything!). Wednesday I felt awesome after my work out and hoping for the same results today! My whole goal in working out is JUST TO FEEL GREAT AGAIN, nothing else- not trying to lose weight or body building-just need energy to live a long healthy life!!!

This IS NOT a downer post but a "FEEL TERRIFIC POST"!!! Send happy things my way, please!!! I will report back later!

Have a Merry Day my Christmas Friends!!!!

Truly glad that you found her. Guys just don't seem to understand how important this is, huh?

She also spent more time on my cut than my usual hairdresser. It's a little shorter than usual, but it looks cute! I made my next appointment with her.
