Me to Becky, I'll be sacked out in my easy chair. I have hopes of watching the ball drop, but don't count on it. My husband knows where Winona is, I don't. He use to be a mine inspector for the Federal Government. I'm glad we are both in the same state. Take care and have a good night sleep!!:)

ABBEMINE-Down in Winona. It's about 45 mins from Rochester.

The last day of the year. It should be nice for most of the day, but tonight is a different story. We're suppose to have a bit of snow plus it's suppose to be very windy so it could be a bit difficult. I will be staying home and I'll probably be in bed long before midnight.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year's Eve!

Finally back from visiting the in-laws. Sounds like Christmas went well and I'm jealous of all the snow. We are supposed to get an arctic front on Tuesday, but it will be sunny. SIGH!

Good Morning!

We're getting a bit of snow this morning. Shouldn't add up to much plus it's suppose to get above freezing today so it'll end up melting. I'm very ok with that. It's too late for snow. The holidays are over. Time for Spring!

ABBEMINE-I'm in SE MN. It's usually snowy and cold now, but it's been unseasonly warm and dry. People are still golfing and I've seen quite a few bikers. Very strange.

I had a much better day yesterday. Didn't have any junk food. I also didn't eat enough because I woke up starving. Will get it right today. We have some shopping to do and I'll have to get out and walk. Otherwise it's going to be a pretty quiet day.

BeckyAnn - I usually don't mind the warmer weather but NOT at Christmas time. I want snow! LOL

ABBEMINE - ours was a pretty quiet Christmas as well. Went to church, had lunch, went to visit Grandson (lives about 3 hours away) and came home. Saw a cute movie at my son's house called Snow Globe (old but cute.)

Hi, Krys I wish I could take a picture but it's no longer pretty. Right now we are up into 45 temp. and it's melting fast. I trust you are having a wonderful Christmas.
BeckyAnne, you must live near my neck of the woods. Your temps. sound like mine. I'm in the northlands.
We had a nice quiet Christmas. My husband & I went to the movies and saw "War Horse". It was good. Then we had a nice meal. I had baked a brisket. Take care one and all. We're starting over today and I wish everyone great succuss.

70? I'm envious of that. Today we are going to be in the 40's. Maybe close to 50. The only bad thing is it's going to be very windy. I will get out and walk though. We have a couple chances of snow in the forecast, but nothing that will add up. I'm very ok with that. I joked with the boys and told them I should've gotten them ice skates and snow shoes this year. They wouldn't have been able to use them. I'm sure we'll get our snow and cold, but just so it doesn't happen in our Spring. I over indulged the past 2 days, but I'm back to normal today. I've found that my stomach does not handle poor eating very well and that is a good thing. We had a very nice and quiet Christmas. I think it's the best we've had in awhile. Even a group picture was taken!

Hey everyone, I got my christmas wish. We have had snow all day and we have at least 2" in on the ground. This snow is the pretty stuff you would make ice cream with. Now it's more like Christmas.

That sounds really nice ABBEMINE!

Krys-I always make "me" time. It's very important to me to do this and my family understands and supports me.

I've been listening to some Classical Christmas Music. Very calming. A nice walk this afternoon and a bit of cleaning around the house. I'm taking it very easy.

I finely did some yoga moves - Believe it or not, they were to my favorite Christmas music. It was slow and rythmic. I loved it.

Good Morning!

I had a busy day yesterday. The weather was beautiful. In fact, the weather is going to be pretty nice thru next week. Who would've thought we would be enjoying the mild temps at this time of year. Today I may hit the grocery store to pick up things needed for Xmas. DH will hit the other store for soda. Since it's just DH and the boys, we won't have a fancy meal except for the ham.

Good Morning Everyone! Today is wrapping day and I've got a batch of cut out cookies to make. I don't frost them. I just sprinkle sugar on them. I found out last year that the boys like them this way just as much as with them frosted. A few less calories! It looks like we're going to have a brown Christmas this year. Ok with me, but the boys would like snow. I always think about the mess and sloppy streets. It will come soon enough and stay longer than we'd like. I just can't believe this year is almost over. Where has time gone? I hope the coming up year, time slows down a bit.

Have a nice Tuesday!

Grands are so wonderful to have over. Mine is now 8 - getting way too grown too fast for me!


Some jokes to help you smile:


Q. How did Scrooge win the football game?
A. The ghost of Christmas passed.

Q. What do Christmas trees and bad knitters have in common?
A. They both drop their needles.

Q. What is a parent's favorite Christmas carol?
A. Silent Night.

A chess club threw a party at a hotel. Afterward, several members were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to leave. After they left, the manager's assistant asked, "Why did you make them leave?"

"Because," the manager replied, "I can't stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer.

Hey Krys - Thanks for the "Way to Go!!!" I haven't used the fitness tracker yet - at least not since I have re-started Sparks - I will get at it. I need to finish my Christmas shopping today - walking - it won't be brisk, but at least I won't be sedentary. Tonight I have both grandsons for a sleep-over. The 3 yr old keeps me very busy, rolling around on the floor, dance party, hide and go seek, ring-a-round the rosie, etc. Already looking forward to a day of rest on Sunday!! Melody

Good Afternoon! Shopping is done! I do have to go and get something for my 4 legged creatures and some goodies for the boys stockings, but presents are bought. I really had fun by myself today. Stopped at Wendy's and had a side salad, no dressing and a grilled chicken sandwich and water. I was stuffed. I could have done without the sauce on the sandwich though.
Krys-my mom takes anti-depressants. My brother is an alcoholic and his health isn't very good. The sad part is he is only 57 years old. She feels this need to stay home and take care of him seeing as it's her only son. She can't seem to let go and let him get the help he so needs and nobody can tell her anything. So my sister and I are basically left alone with our own families. We've learned to accept the situation.
Melody-Way to Go on the lbs lost. Try and get that exercise in even if it's just a short walk. It'll help alot plus it will make you feel even better!

Thanks all for the comments. My Mom lives in assisted living. My brother took her care away from her because of her memory. She goes out with the Activity Director. According to my brother, he doesn't know WHAT DEPRESSION is. My brother thinks it's senility and old age. If it wasn't for my Aunt, Mom's sister. my Mom would fall deep within herself. Have a great Holiday season one and ALL.

Good Morning!

Sounds like fun to have a shopping trip with your mom. My mom just doesn't want to do anything anymore except stay home and watch over my brother who is 57 and has medical problems plus he's any alcoholic. She use to enjoy going shopping. She hasn't even been to my house in years and we live in the same town.

I walked 5 miles yesterday. It was a stress reliever. I probably could have gone more, but I needed to stop. It took me that long to get into my "happy place" . I don't like stress especially this time of the year. Well, it's already Wed. Time to get to the baking!

Glad you had some good times with your mom. I hate long trips too because of the leg cramps! My daughter lives about 750 miles away so when we go visit, it is a long trip!

My trip was a wonderland with my Mom. We acted like we use to when we were together. Crazy, laughing and looking at everything when we shop. And the best is my Mom's conversa
tion was on the frontal lobe of her brain. She was totally coherent with me and I loved being with her. As for the drive back, I hated it. I had to drive one car and MDH had to drive the u-haul. My legs had cramps for 2 days. But we are done, everything is with us now. Today's Tuesday and I'm back to my old self.

Hi, nothing special for us. No one is coming our way. So we'll go out to eat. I'll like that. No dishes to wash. I sure do miss the good times though we use to have as a family.

Shopping pretty much done, baking not even a thought let alone started. Have school until next Tuesday so it will be a last minute thing.

Good Morning! The weather has been really nice. Today it's going to be a bit wet but that's ok. I will still get out and walk. It's so nice knowing I don't have to hurry everything in the morning before I have to go to work. I've got to get my Xmas shopping done this week. I've got quite a bit left. I'm having trouble figuring out what to buy. Plus I'm going to try and get all of my baking done this week. Kids keep asking for cookies.

Melody-it will come. I went quite awhile without dropping a lb. I got sick and then all of a sudden I was able to keep losing weight.

Thanks Beckyanne!!

Look at your weightloss tracker - WOW - so much to be proud of. Some day - my tracker will look just like yours!! Right now I keep sliding between 3-4pounds lost, seriously - I have been my own worst enemy. I can't seem to loose a pound. I'm starting over with SparkPeople - hope to follow directions better this time!!

Welcome back MAHAILS!
I've been having a really good week. Today is my last day of work. I had a really good dr. appt. yesterday. Everything is fine except for my BP. I have another appt with a different dr. next week. We'll see what it is then. I may have to start monitoring it at home. I have got to get more of my Christmas shopping done. I've got alot to go yet. I don't like not knowing what to buy. I hope everyone has a nice day! It's going to be a cold one here.

I haven't found a place for putting up decorations - when I do - I'll let you know. LOL
Lucky you, we will just have the one, I think. It took them 8 years to have him!!

Thanks for the welcome Krys!!

Yes - I did log the curling in my fitness tracker!! Does putting up Christmas decorations count as activity? LOL!! It did wear me out!! I am trying to keep track of my nutrition as well -really drives it home when you see how many calories you have consumed.

I had to update my SparkPage - last September we were blessed to have a 2nd grandson. We are having a blast with those boys!!

BECKYANNE - I saw on the news that many states are getting a cold blast. We are supposed to drop 30 degrees here, but that means going from 80 to 50 - not quite the same thing!

MAHAILS - nice to have you here. We've switched team leaders a couple of times, depending on when you were here last. Am very happy to have you join us. I see that we have 1 grandchild in common as well! I'm impressed with your fitness & nutrition tracking - did you find a place to log all that curling in?

I have been absent for ahwile - but I'm back (I know - try not to get too excited) and I am determined to get serious again about this life style change!! I chose December 1 as my new start date - mainly because I was involved in a work team outing in which we went curling. Yeah - curling!! I can't believe I was able to throw those stones - they weigh 45 pounds and you had to throw them from a squat or lunge position. I did that 16 times and then took the role of sweeper for my teammates when it was their turn to throw the stone. It was 2 hours of constant movement and it was FUN!! Yeah - exercise was fun!! I didn't even mind the 2 days of stiff and sore legs!! So - I'm back and I am going to make this journey productive (having a little fun along the way doesn't hurt either!!)

I bought a few gifts for the family. Plus of course, I bought myself a new sweater and some earrings. Plus we stopped at a grocery store and picked up a few things that we can't get here in town. A few other things that aren't that great. It's hard to go shopping now without looking for something for me. I feel so good now. Yesterday was a pretty good day. I hopped on the ellyptical because I wasn't sure how far I would be able to walk because of the snow and ice. I managed to do my whole walk so it was nice. Today I will go again. I just wish it would warm up. We're suppose to have a few really cold days coming up. Warmer for the weekend though. At least lets hope so.

Good morning! I had a pretty good weekend. Went shopping on Sat. Did pretty well, but I was hoping I would have gotten more done. Yesterday we walked around the lake. It was really pretty with all of the snow on the trees. Today I will be doing most of my workout inside, but will get out for a walk sometime. I don't care if it's just around the block. I need to get out. I hope everyone enjoys their Monday.

Glad to hear you are taking it slow and easy with the exercise until you feel better. Congratulations on the 2 pounds lost! Great achievement! We don't often get snow in GA and when we do it is usually in March! Right now we are in mid-60's with rain coming in.

How about you send your daughter over and she can undo all my messes! LOL Actually, if you put them in charge of cleaning something like dusting, they tend to try and do a fairly good job. My kids loved helping washing dishes (seems like centuries ago) when they were that age, but once they got old enough to really help, it was hard finding them!

Ahh, my last message didn't send :(
I got lots of practice cleaning it's just trying to get it all done before my daughter whips through like a storm emoticon
I have it planned out over 3 days. It seems impossible to do it in one day - I am home with my daughter all day but we go out in the afternoons and when she's awake she likes to undo everything I've done lol.
I'm excited to see how she'll react to Santa this year. Last year she wasn't too fond of him. But, when she went to see Easter bunny this year she couldn't wait for the other kid to get off his lap lol.

Three year olds are so much fun at Christmas. They understand so much more and are usually better about not trying to destroy a tree like a two year old might. Well, if you want some practice cleaning up for Christmas, you can come to my house!

I need to get my (grown) son and DH (darling husband) a gift and I am done Christmas shopping! Have not started cleaning or decorating yet though since I work and am pretty tired when I get home.

My daughter turns 3 on the 22nd so we don't put up anything Christmas related until the 23rd. She was supposed to be born in Feb. but she decided to come a little earlier.
I done a good job last year keeping her from touching the tree. Hopefully she'll be good again this year. lol
We didn't do much for Thanksgiving this year. We got married a little over a week before it so thats when everyone got together and mingled.

Christmas shopping is almost done :) Just got to get something for my brother and father-in-law and mail everyone's cards.
I'm surprised I've got that much done. Last year I was up on Christmas Eve wrapping gifts!

I'm starting the "Christmas" cleaning this Monday - should be fun lol.
Dinner shouldn't be too bad. It's just me, my husband, our daughter and mom & dad in-law.
Would be nice to have a Christmas with everyone (hopefully next year)

Hows your shopping coming along?

Glad to hear from you HAWA-11 ! I agree, this year has gone by quickly. My 8 year old grandson is coming to visit, so we have to put up a tree! LOL
Congratulations on the new home! Great way to celebrate with all new decorations. I think mine would qualify for the antique store by now!

I did Thanksgiving this year (10 people), so it will be a small dinner for my DH, my mom & me this year. How are you doing on your Christmas shopping?

How is everyone?
I can't believe it's December already! Where has this year gone? LOL

Anyone putting up a Christmas tree this year?

I'm excited to decorate, I bought like 95% new decorations because this is our first year in our own home (other years we were renting) I made Christmas supper last year. I'll be doing dinner this time.

I hope everyone has a great weekend emoticon

Good Morning! It's been a good week. It's getting colder outside, but I'm still out walking. That may change a bit this weekend though. We could get our first measurable snow. I hope not.
Julia-I hope you feel better soon.
