I went to Southern Ohio to see my folks over the weekend. It was a nice, but hectic visit.
One of my on-line friends met me for breakfast and it was such fun.
This is NUTTY63 and me having breakfast. We met in a Yahoo! Chat room 15 years ago when I was traveling for my job and we've been friends ever since. She's like a sister to me. Unfortunately, one thing after another, this is the first time we've met in person. She and her fiancé drove over to the town in which my mother lives and we ate at a local restaurant. It was such fun!
I gave my parents their Christmas presents on Saturday. I have a picture of Mom but not my dad. Weird. Anyway, here she is in her new outfit, minus the jacket.
She looks so tired in this picture. I couldn't tell that on my phone. It was a rough visit. All day on Saturday, she thought I was someone else. That was bad enough but then she started calling me by her sister's name, the one that I very much dislike, and that did not go over well with me. When I went to see her on Sunday, she told me how she had had such a good time with my sister "yesterday"(her other daughter). Oh great, I spend the whole day with you and Karyn gets credit. So NOT fair. LOL
Oh well, I'm glad I got to spend time with her. Both my parents seemed so glad to see me and that always makes me feel good.
Now, I should tell you I ate well and walked gobs but alas, I cannot lie, Santa is watching. I sat on my fanny all weekend and while I didn't eat much, they were all the wrong things. I weighed in this morning to see how much damage I'd done... ready? I'm DOWN 5 lbs. I so hate that fricken scale. I KNOW Santa ain't bringing it nothing cuz it lies all the time!
