Here's to hoping everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
This year we're not giving each other gifts since we've had to spend a small fortune on consequential items that weren't planned.
See that nice new F150 in the photo?
After being left out in the cold by our F250 too many times in one month we decided that someone else might get along with it better. So, we went to the Ford dealer and found this one. So far, after two weeks, we're getting along rather well.
On top of truck troubles we've had furnace trouble. The morning of Thanksgiving our furnace quit working. Then, once again, on Christmas Eve morning it did it again.
So, we're hoping we can stop spending money as fast as we earn it.
In just an hour or two we'll be heading to my Mom's house for lots of food. I think I can get through it this year. It's been a depressing past few months weight-wise. It appears that nothing I do helps with a reduction in scale numbers and it just keeps creeping up. In the past month I've gone from 134 to 138 with little or no effort. The only cause that I can think of is I'm a year older or that I haven't been getting all of my walking in at work due to a lot of construction zones. However, I'm still within my calorie allowance and have added lots more veggies.
It's just me and that's how life has been since I was born. Sadly, I had to buy some pants in a larger size so I'd have something to wear to work. I hate when that happens.
