Food, food, food, everywhere I look there is more food! I have been to parties and such every day this week and if I keep eating everything, I am going to have to get rid of the LOST 15 Pounds picture! I just ate some celery to try to fill my stomach a bit before my next dinner, hopefully that will help. I also have not been able to exercise this week thanks to the crummy weather, and the clutter that fills my floor, all of the Christmas gifts waiting to be wrapped and the wrapping paper and oh my goodness it is driving me crazy!
On another note, this is also a joyous time to be thankful and also to reflect. Parts of me are sad because I lost my Grandma on Dec. 18, 2001 and my best friend and cousin on December 26, 2003. It amazes me how much I still miss them but I know that they are in a better place. But at the same time I am so thankful that I still have both of my parents and the rest of my family and friends to celebrate with.
I went to a family reunion over Thanksgiving and we had over 40 family members together and it really blows my mind when I look a the little children and how much some of them resemble my grandma and also how some of them look just like me when I was a child. It was really fun to be able to see everyone and play with the 20+ children that were running around.
I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas.
