We always stay home for New Year's eve and have appetizers all day.

I am retiring this thread as it is getting long and we will start this conversation back up in the new Chat Room.

I have no plans for New Year's Eve. Maybe there will be festive trivia somewhere, if they're having it that night. We did great last night. Probably our highest score ever, or at least we tied it. I probably should keep track. I'm beginning to feel stirrings of wanting to get this place in shape. In a few days, I'll go to the farm and get some more of my stuff. And then have to find a place for it all...It's harder to just show up there now because the driveway is blocked by the pasture gates which are allowing the horses to go back and forth to the barn. I'm always afraid if I move the gates one will dart out or something while I'm doing it. Plus it's a pain to have to mess with them as they're quite large.

I got my own printer for Christmas. Now I have to figure out how to get it going! I gave the kids the promise of meals as a gift, so I'll be working on at least one a week for a while, and maybe some extra goodies. It will take getting used to their new kitchen if I do it over there. I'm still trying to figure my own out and where is the optimum place for everything. I miss my big, deep drawers, but I should actually have more cabinet space. Trade-offs!

We have dense freezing fog here. I have been busy entertaining my children and have not exercised. Today I am taking down the tree and going to the gym. I am glad the scale is staying the same over these last days.

Good to hear that the little furry ones are doing better. My cats are weird with house guests.

I am glad the Christmas season is over. I get depressed
and can't wait for it to pass. Anyway, for new years eve,
a few of my girlfriends and I are just going to take a picnic
down by the Broadwater and watch the 9pm fireworks, have
a few nibbles and a bottle of champagne between us.
It is fun and very inexpensive. I just hope it doesn't rain, but
the way the hot weather is going, the rain would be a very
welcome relief. How are you planning to welcome 2014?
Morticia, I am glad the babies are doing better.

I am one who likes to see the holidays come to an end as well. I like peace and quiet.

We have no little ones in the family and hardly any big ones either. LOL. My son got to come home for a couple of hours but was exhausted. I agree that holidays are not the same.

I am also looking forward to the new year. I will be making some changes to the group which I hope people like.

Rico Suave is starting to feel better and Bun is making some progress. Blocker is still having to be force fed but we got her to eat a blueberry on her own. I did laundry today. Have plenty of leftovers.

I too am glad that Christmas is over. I had a pleasant day, but too chaotic to suit me any more. Or maybe not chaotic enough - there are only a handful of little ones in our family anymore (at least at the moment) - As adults, we are scattered from here to D.C. and several spots in between, we don't all get together anymore. I miss the get togethers and all the little ones in the family... I did get to chat via phone with family that is not here and saw a couple of them that live not too far... I'm not complaining, it's just that things are so different than they were "back then". And life goes on...........

For me the Holidays of 2013 are over with, I don't do anything on New Years (will leave that to the party goers, it's not me).. And that's okay, we never did do much on New Years.

I am back on my food program as of today - had way too much stuff that would have been better suited for someone else - no actually, for no one... There is nothing in my house that shouldn't be here except for some Ritz crackers... (they will be gone soon).

It's cold (35) foggy and damp out today - it's a dreary day... I'm moving some 2013 stuff out to make room for the 2014 stuff and putting all the Christmas stuff away, etc. Plus, doing laundry, etc.........

Hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas - I know Holidays are not always happy times for everyone, but one has to make the best of what's available - it could always be worse. I'm thankful for what and who I do have and looking forward to a new year.

That is so hard when your little ones are not feeling well. I h ope they all improve. I got my cooking done and it was enjoyed by everyone.
The good news is that I did not gain weight from that meal.

Now to stay on track for another meal tonight.

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas.

I got all my cooking done yesterday to so I can rest.

Blocker is having to be force fed as the antibiotics have taken her appetite away. Rico Suave and Bun are sore but are taking their syringe feedings.

Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas everyone. I spent the entire day cooking yesterday and was exhausted. Today we drive to pick up my son and DIL.

Hugs to the fur babies and hope they are feeling better.

Hope everyone who is not feeling well, feels better.

I don't like moving either!

Linda, I have moved so many times! I hate moving. I hope you can get it over with fast.

I'm trying not to stress because stress is the precursor to my getting sick.

My hunger goes in spurts. Some days I'm starved, some days I have no interest in food.

Well, I just heard the farm has been sold! I'm happy for the kids, but it means I need to get moving emptying out those cubbies. And I can't even remember how much stuff is in the garage that I'll need to dispose of somehow.

Hugs to those fur babies, and don't anyone run themselves ragged. I'm wondering if some of this stuffiness means I'm allergic to something here in my new place. At least it's better than it was...I'm still hungry all the time. This is NOT good! Sorry for grumbling!

We got up at 6 to leave by 8 to drive to St. Louis to have dental surgery on 3 of our chinchillas. We ended up there most of the day and got home after dark. We are tired and they are miserable. We will be busy taking care of them for several days.

We had icy roads yesterday. I drove my car out to get they mail as I did not want to walk.

The good news is that I am almost done with holiday shopping. Now I have just got to work on a vegetarian dish for my son.


I hope the days are longer. Congratulations on your anniversary, Morticia.

We've been having icing since noon or so. Son insisted on getting out this evening, around 7 or so, and going to his girlfriend's. He had to chip the ice off his car, and it's still coming down. not happy. It will change over to snow in an hour or so, and we're supposed to get 3-6 inches overnight. Church is already canceled for tomorrow.

I hope you have a speedy recovery, Anna. I don't like air conditioning but the dry air here in the winter affects we adversely as well. I constantly fight off respiratory problems.

The closest Golden Corral here is 70 miles of so. We don't have any place good to eat here. The closest decent place is 50 miles away.

Nope, it is 37 here today. Raining and a change of flash floods. Lots of rain. St. Louis has snow and ice but it is supposed to go north of us.

I got the bath cleaned but will wait on the other until we do the pet cages tomorrow..

Today is the winter solstice and our anniversary. The days will get longer now. I love that!

Goanna, I hope you feel better. It is hard to be sick in the heat.

We don't have a Golden Corral here but the ads on TV look appealing. I think it is great to go out to eat and not cook for the family!

I hope that 60 degree weather lasts, Morticia.

I am enjoying spending time with my husband at home as well. Plus I get to play with the cats.
My other son and wife are coming in a few days and I am house cleaning.

It has been nice here today too. In the sixties. I have been so busy this week, not had much extra time for posting. My girls are coming tomorrow for our Christmas get-together. I am excited to see all my grandkids. All 6 of them. My youngest daughter is treating us all to lunch at Golden Corral tomorrow. She said that would be her gift for the whole family. How nice it will be not to spend the day cooking tomorrow.

I use the tiny post office in the town where I work. The clerks know everyone who enters. It is nice.

Hope everyone feels better with congestion and colds.

Thank goodness today is Friday. It is supposed to snow.

Our little post office probably won't close. It's inside a trailer supply place and they charge the postal service no overhead, just what they make from stamps and shipping, etc. - (she'd told me this before after I told her I was surprised the postal service didn't close them down). I sure hope they stay open!!

Cold and damp day here today, never got above 34° - I'm going to put on my fuzzy robe after while and curl up in the recliner..

We have a tiny post office too. We worry about losing ours as they phase so many out.

Rain is on the way here too. Days of it. Then the cold weather is back.

I did get the box mailed to TX today - after yet another lunch with our park ladies... After lunch, I came home and finished getting it ready, put a label on it and took it to the post office (a little po-dink sub station near my house that hardly anyone uses). (Best kept secret in town maybe...)

It rained most of the day today, so didn't get out to walk - took a little nap later this afternoon instead.. Our lunch was pretty early today, so it all worked out.

I love the changing seasons too. That's why I
enjoyed the cooler change down south.
I am just having a relaxing day as I have woken

It's funny how one's man trash is another man's treasure. I don't care for snow but had a friend move here from Florida who came here because she loves the changing seasons. LOL.

I agree about the pizza Morticia. When we were in
Melbourne, we went to an Italian restaurant and had
ourselves a Greek pizza - fresh slices of tomato, red
onions, feta and rocket. Delicious.
You asked if it snows here. I live in the sub tropics,
so no to us but Melbourne is south and the Australian
Alps are not too far. They do get snow and actually have
a good ski season there. Melbourne itself has been known
to experience 4 seasons in one day and I was there many
years ago and it snowed in December. Lovely city and it
has earned the gong of world's most livable city.
My son has safely arrived in Toronto and told me he is just
loving the snow and looking forward to his first ever
White Christmas. So excited for him.

Betty, I think that is wonderful. Sometimes plans were meant to be changed and this one was for the good. Having lunch with a GF sounds fantastic to me. I wish I could do that. It would do wonders for my stress level.

I love pizza and occasionally have to have it. Some things are just nonnegotiable to me. I won't give up pizza.

instead of doing what I was supposed to (get box wrapped and ready to mail) I went to lunch with a girlfriend and chatted away about half the afternoon... And tomorrow is a Christmas luncheon out with our park group - so better burn the midnight oil tonight maybe.

I did manage to get out and walk a couple of miles this morning though, so it wasn't a total loss - since I had pizza for lunch, I probably should have walked twenty miles.... emoticon .

Sun never broke through the fog today over here, but it was sunny where we went to lunch. Tomorrow it's supposed to rain.

I would rather have the drizzle and fog too. We will have that for a few days and then maybe more snow/ice on Sunday. I wish that would just be rain or nothing.

I really miss walking outside. And I have cabin fever. But it's way too slick to walk outside.

I need to get my Christmas cards done.

We very seldom get snow here..or if we do, it comes down and is usually gone by the next day because our ground temps are so warm. However, this particular storm that has gone across the country, Canada (thanks all you from Canada emoticon for sharing).

It's gone now and we're back to the drizzle and fog.. Much preferred!!

The only thing that has kept me "kind of" on plan is the fact that I've been at home most of the time and haven't been baking... I do have some things I need to do this coming weekend or next Monday at the latest - that might mess everything up... I don't seem to be losing weight, but so far I haven't gained... only the daily fluctuations of up a couple, down a couple... kind of a rut.. Haven't been able to walk much due to slippery streets, I've done the TM a few times, but I hate that so!! Tomorrow I plan on walking outside... had other things to do this morning, altho did do the TM, so it wasn't a total loss.

I've got a box I need to get wrapped and mailed to TX, need to do that tomorrow also so it gets there on time.

Betty, I'm really glad you are okay. I was worried about you. I had no idea you got snow there. We got way too much snow too and are not used to dealing with a foot of snow. I'm still reeling from it and we still have it. I hope this is it for this year but I know it won't be. I'm happy to see someone on plan. I'm not doing as well as I need be. I am eating things I shouldn't and don't even want them that much but eat them anyway. Cookies, candy, salty snacks. I'm not sure that makes any sense but maybe someone can relate. LOL. But in January things are changing.I have got to get serious again.

Anna, does it snow there? I guess I thought Australia was warm.

I'm not in the mood for Christmas and, to be honest, I have not done anything yet.

I hope everyone stays safe in the crazy weather.
We on the other hand are having high temperatures
with humidity and I find myself wishing for some of
the white stuff. I was away in Melbourne (south ofus)
and really enjoyed the cooler temperatures,
Have a safe and wonderful week.

I guess I've been kind of MIA here lately. All is well, but have been busy. We were snowed in with about 8" snow on the ground and up to minus 10 degrees which froze that snow and made the roads all but impassable. Schools and activities were all shut down for almost a week. I know some of you have weather like this every winter, but we're wimps here.. and are more used to just rainy drizzle and milder (40's) temperatures, so the city pretty much shuts down. So, I just stayed at home where it was warm - (Sure do NOT want to see my upcoming electric bill).

Weather is back to normal, but am hoping once these holidays are finished, everything will be back to normal...I have still been tracking my foods though, so all is not lost. And doing okay, eating right (pretty much)...

our storm fizzled out and we only got a little winter mix, sleet, and snow. Today it got up to 38 and finally the snow is melting.

Cold, but not a lot of precipitation. A band of freezing rain this morning, Katrina went out the front door to go to school and slid, fell flat on her backpack lol So glad she had it on! She drove to school, streets were fine, and it warmed up and all melted throughout the day. may get a bit of snow tonight. Cold enough that we had to cancel the mobile food pantry tomorrow, too cold for the produce - and the volunteers! Sad, they really depend on that monthly produce drop. I worked at the pantry inside 1-6 today, 2 shifts for 2 different people who couldn't make it. And went to grocery store for bread donations and both Starbucks for their donations. This on top of yesterday's business, where we unloaded 4 trucks of WalMart donations and 4 pallets from an order to Harvesters of canned and bagged dry foods. We worked nonstop 9-2 on all of that. Lots of fun, though, the volunteers are a close-knit group and ejoy each other's company. Have to - we dance around each other constantly in very close quarters!

Had a scary afternoon my finger swelled and my ring got struck my husband tried butter and nothing he had to cut my ring off so I think I need to watch my sodium and salt intake. My finger is still swelled believe it or not. I just got back from walking to get the kids from school and I also took them to school this morning. Tomorrow our town is having a x-mas parade so I am taking the kids to see it. It suppose to be nice and in the 60's tomorrow. Just figure I check in to see how everyone is doing. Hope all is well and everyone is keep warm.

Well not much going on today just enjoying some warm weather after it was cold for a while.
Got all my x-mas shopping done and has everything planned for x-mas dinner too. I plan on staying on track too. Just got back from walking and picking up the kids from school. I love walking them to and from. I sent out all my x-mas cards yesterday. So now all I have to do is just wrap all the gifts but for now I am just going to relax till x-mas.I can't believe this year is almost over and 2014 is near. Hope in 2014 I will lose this weight for sure. I just have to stay focus and on track and stick to a plan without quiting. Better go and get dinner started. Hope all is well with everyone and everyone is staying warm........

That sounds like a great plan Morticia. I eat a lot of eggwhites also. That's a good source of protein. I also eat a salad every day too. I am going today, to get the stocking stuffers, and do my christmas grocery shopping then I shall be done, except for wrapping a few more gifts. This year I am taking my kids out to eat for Christmas. My plan for Christmas is the same as it was for Thanksgiving. No leftovers are staying at my house unless they are healthy ones. That one change really helped me out for the holidays. I mean to hit that 50lb mark by the New Year. 60lbs has the been the most I have ever lost at one time before. It took me 6 months to lose that, just to have it to return, plus more. I was doing a low fat diet then. Diets are no longer in the picture. Changing my lifestyle is what works.

If you don't want to keep starting over, don't give up in the first place.

Morticia: That sounds like an excellent eating plan. I am a fan of egg whites also. I also like big salads with lots of things dumped in them. I also eat yogurt everyday!

I eat the same thing for breakfast every day - I have 4 or 5 egg whites, 2 strips of uncured lower sodium bacon, a clementine or orange, and a glass of almond milk or Hood Calorie Count Down Chocolate dairy beverage.

I will eat a snack if I need one - it will always contain protein - usually cheese, nuts, peanut butter stuffed celery, or yogurt. I eat at least one yogurt a day.

For lunch I have a chef salad with lots of veggies. Mixed greens or romaine, 2 hard boiled egg whites, peppers, cauliflower, broccoli, radishes, carrots, green onion, sunflower seeds, cheddar cheese, bacon bits, turkey or chicken and homemade French dressing. If I need more calories to maintain my blood sugar I will have a piece of fruit.

I will have a snack if I need it- the same usually.

For supper I have some grilled or baked meat - usually around 5 ounces, a vegetable or two like green beans, cooked cabbage, rutabaga, turnips, etc. and a serving of fruit. Sometimes I will have a starchy vegetable or beans. Not more than one a day.

At 7:30P.M. to 8:00 P.M. I have to eat a last snack.

You are welcome to check out my nutrition tracker on my Sparkpage. It shows my menus for a week at a time.
I mostly get my protein from chicken, fish, beans and eggs. I aim for a 5 veggies or more a day. Most time my fruit intake is 2 or less daily. I do eat lean beef or lean pork occasionally. I try to eat healthy 80 to 90% of the time. Thats mainly what I am doing.

Deb, that's awesome!!!

one evening school concert down, one to go, and a huge poster project for English. Daughter is really busy this week.

Our shelves are completely empty at the food pantry, hoping to get a load in today, definitely will tomorrow, as he placed an order with Harvesters. Should at least get frozen meat today, from WalMart.

Today mom has appointment with dermatologist, and wow it's cold again. Yesterday was pretty nice, got up to 30. Cold front moving through, and it's 19, wind chill of 5. will do the wheelchair/blanket thing again to get her inside!

Our share will be in the form of winter mix, sleet, and freezing rain on top of our mess of snow. But it doesn't arrive until Friday/Saturday.

I agree..45 pounds in three months is amazing Deb. Great job.

Morticia: Hold on with that winter storm. It looks like more snow is coming. We are simply in the teens and cold.

The snow and ice missed us, but we have had rain (mud flurries) for 4 days. Yesterday made me 3 months of smart carbing. I lost 14lbs last month, ending with a 45lb loss for 3 months. I feel the best I have in years.

If you don't want to keep starting over, don't give up in the first place.

I'm glad, at least, that I'm stuck at home, WITH POWER. LOL. We got some ice but not a lot. We got a little more snow last might. It would be nice if it would get above freezing so some of this would melt off before our next round on Friday but it will take a long time for a foot of snow to melt.

Much of the US, even Arizona and Nevada is covered with snow and cold. We have snow everywhere but at least no ice for now.

I feel for all of those people who are stuck in airports with cancelled flights or who don't have power.
There have been car pile ups. People were stuck so long that they ordered pizza to be delivered to their cars.

soooo cold! 15 degrees, wind chill is 0. Brutal. I had to go to grocery store to get bread donations for food pantry, and loaded 2 carts of bread into the car. Then back at the pantry there was 3 truckloads of stuff delivered from WalMart that we had to unload, so had the big door open the whole time doing that. Such a busy week this week, don't know how I'm going to get everything done. We in KC have missed most of the snow. It has gone south of us (Alex got 6 inches, northwest Arkansas) and north of us.

yep, it's not a good time to be in the states unless you are in middle/southern Florida or southern Arizona. Or some place similar. My back is doing better but I am stuck inside. I have no vehicle to go anywhere. We have one 4 wheel drive. off-road vehicle and my hubby has that to go to work.

I hope you get some sleep. It's 10 pm and I am
exhausted so off to bed. Have a great week and I
hope the cold and bad storms ease up for you all.
My son was happy to get out of the heat and be
in cold weather and now I'm sure he is thinking he
would rather be here as he tells me SF is so cold~

Hope you get home with no drama. It certainly sucks here. Too much snow and not enough road clearing. Cabin fever is going to become a problem but at least my back is getting better.

Hey hey - been offline due to computer issues and then business. I am currently finishing up business back east. I have been in NYC and Connecticut for the week. Ironic that it has been super nice and mild while it has been 20 degrees in Seattle since I have been gone. Now the snow is suppose to pay a visit and of course I fly out tomorrow. I am praying that the weather doesn't interfere on either end since snow is in the forecast on both towns. Just my luck I will get stuck in some airport..lol.

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie

Very cool today. It was 8 degrees when I went for a walk. It was forecast to make 34 on Monday. But that was downgraded to 18. We are warming up. From 16 today to 17 tomorrow, and 18 degrees on Monday. Can't fight progress.

I hate moving and think it would be nice to have people do that for me if/when I have to again. They could organize everything in the best possible way. Including furniture. I think I actually need them now!! LOL.

Got back from the cruise late Sunday night and have been feeling a bit blah since. I think I may have caught something from Jason (10-year-old grandson), since he came home sick and missed 2 days of school. I rode next to him all the way back from Miami. I need to get more serious about getting the rest of my stuff from the apartment and into my new townhouse. Or get rid of whatever I don't need. I'm feeling pretty stuck and not getting much accomplished. But the cruise was fun. i played way too much trivia and enjoyed it all!

I think we're about to get some of that bad weather. It was about 80 degrees here yesterday, Way too warm for this time of year, but I guess I should be careful what I wish for! Nobody around here knows how to drive in the snow, so it can get ugly. Should get to about 50 today early and gets colder and probably rainier though the day. Looks like I won't be trying to move stuff if I want to keep it dry. A day to organize around here instead.

It is 24 here. We have gotten around 9 inches so far and it is still snowing. We are expecting 10 to 14 inches on top of 0.10 inch of ice.

I feel for the people driving on ice. It is not easy. At least the kids are all wearing long pants and have stopped wearing shorts.

I have lost the two pounds from my vacation. Hooray.

Alex is in the middle of the storms in northwest Arkansas. Freezing rain, snow, ice, etc. I think all is going ok, haven't heard a lot, but enough. I guess. lol We were on the very northern edge, just a dusting of snow, but soooo cold. 13, wind chill of negative 3 tomorrow morning. More snow possible Sunday.
