No, not the spy kind of mole. The plain old ugly brown spot on my arm that got removed kind. I got a card in the mail today telling me that the biopsy showed negative/benign results. Yippee!!!
After telling DH, I asked him if he would remove the stitches for me when it was time. That way, I wouldn't need to go back to the doc and pay another $10. Really, all ya gotta do is cut some string and pull it out of my arm. I'd do it, but it is on the back of my right arm. I can't cut left-handed in the best of circumstances and these ain't!
DH said he'd rather not. He's not good at that "doctor" stuff. Sissy! LOL! I can say that because eight years ago, on December 23rd!, he fell from a ladder and crushed his left ankle (the height of ladder is growing over the years...I think it was about 10 ft). In the course of getting him healthy, he had five surgeries. After one, he had a hole in his leg that needed packed with sponges daily and a stint (sp?) in his chest so he could get intravenous antibiotics. I'm the one who shot the antibiotics into that little tube! Oh yeah, and he needed shots for awhile (in his stomach) so his blood wouldn't clot. Yep, I gave him those! And he can't cut some string? Oh well! Maybe I'll take his $10 and get someone at work to remove the stitches. LOL!

We had our company Christmas potluck/party. Started out pretty good in that I helped carve the ham and turkeys and didn't pick at it like I might at home. But, then one of my co-workers brought in a cookie tray and I helped myself. Then it was time to eat the potluck and I took a little bit...from practically every plate! All of it was delicious. Then, I had to go get cheese cake...and peanut butter balls...and pumpkin cake...and I'm sure there are more things I ate that I forgot about! LOL!
There are some good things about today. One, I did take very small portions of everything I ate. Two, I remember now why I don't eat like this every day. Three, I am not at all tempted to eat like this again for the rest of the week. Four, I went to the gym tonight.
So, all in all, not a bad day. Tomorrow will back to the healthy lifestyle I'm learning to love!

So...I got my phone yesterday and I carried it with me EVERYWHERE today. I didn't need to, I just did cos I could. Plus, I could pull it out and check the weather, just cos! LOL! I even slept poorly last night because EVERY dream involved my I-Phone! How sad is that?!?!
Anyway, at lunch, I decided to log in my food as soon as I was done eating it. It took me longer on the phone than it would have on a regular computer, partly cos I kept hitting the wrong buttons. But, it was fun. I liked being able to check my mail and look at Spark and everything else I could do. I know, I know, lots of people have one and it's no big deal. To them!! To me it's my coolest newest toy ever! And I'm going to enjoy it until it's old hat.
Thanks for listening to me ramble on about the phone. I'll try to have something new to say tomorrow. No promises tho! LOL!

If you've read my blogs the last couple of days, I was talking about how much I wanted to get done today. Started okay today. Took my truck to get the heater fixed (YIPPEE) and went to breakfast with DH (even ordered well!). Went to Shopko and got the kids done for Christmas.
But, then, the trouble started. DH took me to get my Christmas present early. An I-Phone! Yippee!!! Do you know how hard it is to be a productive, responsible adult when there are new toys to play with? Man, I love my new phone! I was somewhat restrained and loaded to (free) apps and played online only a little while. Then, I went back to my to-do list.
Here's the run down:
Gym - Did it!
Laundry - Finished it!
Make 3 to 4 batches of Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Balls (Office Christmas party on Tuesday and that is what I bring) - Made all I need to!!
Make lasagna for the freezer - lunches when there are no other leftovers - done
Make Southwest Sausage Bake - dinner - done
Library - done (sorta)
Sort and deliver Pampered Chef - sorted and most of deliveries will be in truck for tomorrow's delivery
Finish the last few Chrismas cards - done
Clean and organize the bathroom drawers and under the sink - yeah...no
Clean under kitchen sink - again, no
Read - some, never enough
Start all auction items for DH - most of them started!
So, for a two-day weekend, I'd say I kicked some pretty serious arse. Now...all I need is a day of rest. Maybe around Christmas?
