Don't worry about the diet!! You are fine just the way you are.


I hope your niece feels better soon. She has been through so much. Thanks for your kind comments about my diet. Xo

There's nothing worst than a loved one going through health issues. My thoughts are with you and your family.

The sad thing is the test she needs that will show her what is going on is the last one that the doctor will send her for. The specialist that she goes to is very cold and money hungry (sorry that sounds mean). He will send her for three tests and then that one because he has done it in that order before. She could be suffering for a couple of weeks and he wouldn't care. It's a shame so many doctors are insensitive. So just keep praying for her that she's okay til the tests are done and they can figure out new medication!

Sleep well & sweet dreams everyone. I am just going to stay up for a little bit and unwind with a TV show or two. I never sleep on Sunday nights anyway - I don't know why but I never have! My grandma used to say the same thing. For some reason I just lay there and think about things and toss and turn forever.

Good night!!

Not much going on right now. I worked today as I usually do every day and it was fine. The dictators for this company are AMAZING. NO MORE GOOBERS !!! I work every day though because as an independent contractor I am responsible for paying MUCH MORE in the way of taxes as opposed to an employee. I am just now beginning to figure out how many lines I need to do in a pay period to be able to meet financial obligations. I think when I first started in August last year my former company had been so strict and uncompromising with the schedule that I went a little nuts being able to be off whenever I want....Of course when I am off I do not get paid but I am hoping that I have learned. I think I have, at least in this respect.

I blew my diet AGAIN...DANG IT. I have just a few more pounds (I thought I was at goal but no) to go and lately it seems every several days I go nuts and binge. I HATE THIS. It is what I have always done and I have never figured out WHY. Tomorrow is a new day so I will go with that.

I am glad and relieved everyone who faced that terrible Winter storm are alright.

Coach, it makes me sad you lost all your Christmas DVR programming.

Snowflake, Harlowe is such a doll baby !!! Please tell her how much her Auntie CM3 loves her.

Jennifer - I am praying for your dear mom. She certainly has been through it. xo

Made - You look so cute in that "Elmer Fudd" hat !! How is your niece with the arthitis ??

Xmas - I still hope you can find a job where you are happier.

Well, I am off to finish my latest Debbie Macomber book, 1225 Christmas Tree Lane.

(((((HUGS))))) to all ESPECIALLY:

Ella, Harlowe, Snowball, Gomez, Ophelia, Sidney, Alex, Merlin, Snickers, Victor, Daisy, Diva, Mickey, Palmer, Mouse, Bo, Chico, Meca, Alvin, Charlie, Gary, Bailey, Jerrold, Irving, Martha, Uncle Julio, Missy, Scooby, Sasha, Jacob, Cracker, Bunny B, Penny, Pocket, LuLu, Bear-Bear, Stripey, Holly, Fate Puppy (London,) Buster, Missy, Baby, Santa's Polar Bears, Sangria, O'Malley, Beau, Taz, Zema, Rizzo, Bella, Happy, Sam, Guinness, Holly Noel, Larry SR, Mama, and all furkids everywhere xoxoo



Aww thank you, Har loves her Auntie very much too!! Xo

I'm glad you're loving the company you work for now, your boss sounds like a neat lady. It's great that you're in a good routine, and know just how much you need to work, and when you can afford to take some time off, etc.! And no Goobers,,,finally! Happy for you =]

made is so right, don't worry too much @ the diet, as long as you're healthy, that's all that matters. You'll get back to it you're beautiful no matter what.

Ok, back to bed for me. Sweet dreams!!

Xo

Good Morning, Good Morning!
Let's start the New Week right.

And what better way to accomplish that goal than with this revelation:
Days to the Season: 275
Days to Christmas Day: 317
Tomorrow.
I'll say it again......
TOMORROW.
We will arrive at the one-quarter mark to Christmas Season 2013.
And right on schedule.
(If you don't believe me, just take a gander at our thread post #1 chart!)

A bit warmer yesterday. Dry, too.
A harbinger of things to come today when we could proceed right on up into the 60's.
(Unfortunately, it is coming with rain.
But no matter. We can use the moisture, as the weather service has us in a moderate drought situation.)
We currently stand at a wet 49 degrees here in the capital city.

You have a Marvelous Monday, OK Folks?
(Just think Christmas and you'll do fine!)
