My maintenance period is almost over. I have been maintain within 5 pounds since Thanksgiving. My maintenance ends January 1st. New Year New Challenge.
For the next couple of days I will be coming up with my resolutions. I will having them ready by Monday! Last year I just made a couple but I was very successful in the goals and resolutions I have set. I will be equally successful this new year coming.
My sister hasn't had the baby yet. She is coming soon but I don't know if she wants to be here before the New Year.
Christmas Eve at my mother's was very priceless! James and his kids came over there and they had no idea that my family went out and shopped for them. After dinner, the kids went into the living room and started looking at the presents which is when they noticed their names. OMG! I wish I had my camera out. All three came into the kitchen and shouted, "Daddy, we have presents here!" It was totally hilarious!
Christmas morning, at James' house, James brought me a spice rack. He brought it because I told him on our second date the key to losing weight is spice. If healthy food taste good your taste buds will want the healthy foods! It was awesome.
Then going to James' family Christmas, his mom keep saying she sees a wedding in the future. His step-dad said only grandkids he doesn't have is Yankee Grandkids. I think I blushed so much I want to crawl under the table.
It was very good Christmas. My sister is still pregnant. I think she is having the baby on the 27th. It is just my guess.
My Grandmother service was beautiful. My mom's church family hosted a luncheon after. It was very nice. I am glad my mom has people she can rely on.
My sister is having actually labor pains. So anytime between now until her due date she could have my little niece, Amber Grace . I cannot wait to meet her.
I am very excited. I finished my shopping Saturday. I was so blessed with lot of deals and great coupons. I finished wrapping all the gifts last night.
I am getting out of work early and the festivities begin. Tonight, we are celebrating at mom's. Then I am spending the night at James' house. After his kids open their gifts we are having a dinner at his mom's.
Well yesterday afternoon I did my good deed for the day...I gave blood! It made me feel very good knowing that someone gave blood for my Grandmother and Roger. I can give back. I have been giving blood every two months for the last 3 years. I have a collection of t-shirts that I am so proud to wear. I usually pick up a 2 XL t-shirt unfortunately they were out of. So I picked up a xl and it fit! I could not believe it! I cannot remember when the last time was in a XL t-shirt! Yeah Me!
Last night, I pickup a flower arrangement for my Grandmother's service tomorrow. It was purple and silver poinsettias. It was beautiful. Normally, it would have been $50 and that was a little much on my budget. However, since it was in the Christmas section I brought it for 50% off! What a blessing!
When I got home, a friend of mine tried to bring me into some drama. I cut it off at the pass but I am still bother by her comments. Why do words hurt so much?
