Frazzled & Frantic But Holding the Line w/ Healthy Choices

Thursday, December 17, 2009

Going crazy dealing with BOTH a pellet stove that isn't burning right and an oil furnace that isn't running and here we are zooming down to our first single-digit night...argh! Service fellow is coming to save the day...after hours fees and all, ugh!

Holiday festivities and foods continue to pop out all over...but have been enjoying them in healthy ways...no more stumbles on my way to ONEderland thank you...! :-)

Our local supermarket has been having these HUGE Cortland apples on sale 78 cents a pound and they are DELICIOUS! And no where NEAR the calories of other foods...been chowing on 2-3 each day...yum...what a treat!

Can't wait for some slack days...there WILL be some, won't there...?

    LOL - I'm sure that the time between and including Christmas and New Year's was meant to be "slack time"... we'll all be bemoaning what we have had during that time; just wait for those January posts!

    Cortland apples - yummy! I can't wait to get to NY and get some of the local apples...and the other good local foods like Hoffman's hot dogs and coney's, Grandma's Baked Beans and cheese curd! I can't get any of those down here - and I hear that they are calorie free when you eat them in NY! :)

    Hope your repairman came through for you!

    ugh, so sorry about your heaters. The last 2 days have certainly made up for our warm November! Hope you got everything fixed and got some sleep.

    It's always that way - whenever the need for heat is crucial, that's when the furnace breaks down. Same thing in the summer when you really need the air-conditioner.

    Good for you eating apples - healthy & delicious, too. Have you tried the Honey Crisps? They are fantastic!

    My super snack this season is those little Clementine oranges. Seedless, peel like a dream, and just the right size! Sorry to hear about your furnace. One of life's little bug-a-boos...
    A special emoticon for how well you've been handling the holiday eating. Very motivating!
