It's been suggested that all who want to talk, chat, tell what's going on in their lives or whatever...meet us on the topic--How's your day going? and post there.

This way, this thread will be for only what weight you've lost. And, the other threads, only for what the title suggests.

Hope to see you all there and learn what's going on in your life!

Yesterday I planned to wrap Christmas gifts and save the grocery shopping for this afternoon. I was determined to avoid the grocery store yesterday because whenever they even whisper the "s" word on the weather report everyone goes roaring out to stock up on groceries and then nothing happens - weatherwise. However after I had all my gifts sorted and the wrapping paper and boxes arranged, I descoveed I had no tape - not the first scrap. So I decided if I had to go into town anyway, I might as well bite the bullit and join the "crazies" at the gorcery store and get it over in one trip. Kinda glad I did now. We've had 8 or 9 inches of snow and now it's starting to blow and drift. We have a level 3 emergency rating, which means only emergency and county vehicles on the roads, unless you have to be out for an emergency. They cancelled most of the church services this morning. A little while ago I looked out my kitchen window and saw the birds just about coming to blows over the last bit of seed in the feeder, so I schlepped out and refilled it and now my back yead looks like the Alfred Hitchcock movie. LOL

I found your guinea pig and his brother! Too much Holiday baking. At this point I would be content to just stay in place until after the Holidays.

I've lost a guinea pig, but since I've gained another head with the medicine I was on for the pinched nerve, I have a ways to go before I start to celebrate.

yes, I survived...my son had them stay at his house since I was getting so stressed...but all in all, I have to say...falling in love has helped that girl's attitude SOOOOOOOO much! We only had one intense moment, and I just wouldn't let it escalate. T-day was great.
I waited until 11:00 on Black Friday...went to Walmart for one thing...they had several left...the crowds were normal WM crowds...the loonies left early according to the cashier...it was good.
Have a great time in Baltimore!
love ya all

So...how'd it go Rags? Did you survive the guests from He--? Hopefully it didn't spoil your holiday.

Rose - I try to avoid shopping on Black Friday - hate the crowds, traffic and frantic feel in the air. We were on the road anyway this time, coming back from my cousin's; stopped at Cracker Barrel going up and back - love that place! I'm done with shopping, wrapping, and mailing packages anyway. Now I'm working on the Christmas and Chanukah cards, but ran out of cards (I should have kept some of those freebies that come in the mail instead of giving them all to my son and dil to save them money!). Mom and I are going to lunch and shopping today anyway, so I'll pick up more. She wants to get the new baby's gifts and also son and dil's gifts for us to take to Baltimore this weekend; dh has a conference, and I'm going to spend time with the new granddaughter - yay!
Have a good one!

HI, all...I have a dirty house, dirty laundry, a guest room full of I don't know what...and a "not-so-much-wanted" pair coming to my house on Friday. I should be ashamed, it's my niece and a new boyfriend. I kinda got roped into it, and they are staying 2 nights. I love her dearly, but she is SOOOOO opinionated and outspoken. Let's all cross our fingers that she is on especially good behavior with this new guy. I told my kids that I'm not doing this alone...they have to help entertain them. Sat. night we are all going to my son's house....hmmm... maybe I can sneak out and leave them there! LOL I'm not being a b----...the whole family {not just me and my kids} knows what she is like. I think that's why I get her for 2 nights...my stepmom can't handle more than that! lol
But hey...another lb is gone this week! That's good.
And who knows...I might have some good stories to tell about my Turkey Day in hell! lol lol lol or cry!

We had our Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday with our family and I will be working on Thanksgiving day. So I'm at the eating leftover turkey stage and about to grow feathers and start gobbling. I think the rest of the bird is going into the freezer for future meals. Have a good Thanksgiving day, everyone. Does anyone like to go shopping the day after Thanksgiving? Not me! I stay way far away from the shopping malls that day!

Hey, thanks...I printed that off for future reference! Now when someone asks how much I've lost I can tell them without really telling them! Good job!
