Christmas was good. We had 2" snow on Christmas Eve, which was the first snow, and it looks pretty outside.

Christmas night, we lost power at 1:30 a.m. though. I found a flashlight, and we figured it would be back on shortly, so I just went to bed. At 2:15, it was getting cool in the house, so we decided to go see if we could get some supplies, since all we had was one flashlight, and we would rather be in a warm store anyways. We drove around to see some Christmas lights, because every store in the area was closed till 6 a.m.I got home at 4 a.m., and decided to try to sleep till 6 a.m. By now it was 45 degrees in my apartment, since it was 26 outside. I was up at 6 a.m., because I couldn't really sleep since I was freezing, even in sweats, and 2 blankets. I got dressed, and went out to get in my car, and as I zipped up my coat, the zipper came off in my hand... lol. We went to get some lights, and a new coat for me, and when we got back home, the power was still off at 7 a.m. That is when I decided to go eat at a restaurant, even if it was off plan. We spent 90 minutes there, just eating eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, and a bagel with cream cheese, along with a V-8, and orange juice. The power was still out when we got home at 8:45, but I just started reading, since it was light out at least.

We got power back at 9:30 a.m. Some drunk hit a pole and knocked it completely over. They had to put in a pole, then put the transformer back on the pole. I was okay at that point, and turned up the heat, and went back to reading. I put my glasses on my dresser, and read till I finally fell asleep. Upon waking, I went to put on my glasses, and the tip of the earpiece fell off.

I taped it up last night, and watched some Pistons basketball. We got 4" of snow last night, and I got soaked cleaning off my car, so I could go to the eyeglass store. The fix was free. I went to get some eggs, and onions from the store, and back on track this morning. I just had 5 XL eggs, and going to start cooking lunch/dinner of chicken, tomatoes, and onion soon. I weighed in at 222.0 today, which is down, just not as much as if I had stayed on plan. I could have eaten some cold chicken, but overall I am okay.. warm, and happy.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Ended up being a white Christmas here.
