Kathy--glad all was good for your holiday. per my sister they haven't gotten much snow yet this winter. in Houston it has gotten back up in 80's.

my sons are busy downloading and playing new video games they got to pick out. i'm just doing a few little things around my bedroom to try and clean the clutter. since not really getting rid of much, it maybe looks a little better but is still way too much stuff. I more putting a little from two boxes into one box and throwing away an empty box. I think i'm a but of a hoarder at heart but am trying to change. not waiting for new years to start changing some thing besides just my weight.

Have a great week everyone.

Man plans, God laughs!

Glad that your Christmas was nice Kitty!

Everyone seemed to enjoy their presents, some being really BIG hits, and some I think were even bigger hits than the person buying them had anticipated, which is always a lovely plus!

Conversation, food and company were all excellent - another huge plus in my books! Today was nice and quiet, thankfully. My hubby was working , so dinner was just leftovers with our eldest and her little one. My younger son arrived just after we finished eating, so fed him and his girlfriend, visited for a bit then they all headed back to my DD's for the night.

His girlfriend was surprised that yet again, she is in Canada at Christmas time and we are having really mild temperatures, with so much rain coming down today that much of our snow is fast disappearing.....

had a really nice Christmas at friend's house. there were 5 of us and we played Skip-bo. called my sister today and had nice visit. thought i'd gain over weekend but didn't so looking really good for new years. I don't however understand why I don't seem to be losing inches. probably it is coming off neck and breast or other parts not measured. someday it will show up as lost inches on waist and hips.

have a great week everyone. i'm enjoying our shorts weather.

Christmas cookies are gone. We've had our big holiday meal, so it's time to start on my program again. I did great before my week off from work. I'm getting back on the plan to lose those couple of pounds I gained this week. emoticon

hope you are having a great Christmas. glad your cough is better and in fact hopefully gone now. hard to get house as you'd like with on going work but once it is complete i'm sure it will be even better for future holidays.

I never got last could of cards written and sent but maybe next week. I did at least send a few out to family. I have lost my weight that planned to but still a week to keep it off and this weekend is hard. I totally over ate yesterday and hope to hold in check some today. got invited to friend's for Christmas day. yea, as she is such a good cook and her house is always decorated so nice. I am not a very good cook and every year it seems I do less decorating except last year was worse than this.

Have a very Merry Christmas. Glad you are able to see all your family. my family lives in north central Missouri and i'm in Houston. it is to be in 80's and I love that as hate being cold.

Man plans, God laughs!

Sorry I didn't get back here sooner - have not been getting notices from Spark about the different boards I usually participate on which is ever so frustrating!!!

Kitty - my tree is huge - 7 1/2 feet tall. Usually I have the entire main floor decorated, but not this year. We're still not finished and not going to be at this point, I guess. Ireally just did not feel up to it, so things will be much more on the minimalist side for me as far as Christmas decorating goes this year. The Christmas cards never even got started either - guess they won't be happening either unless I just set out a few notes after the Holidays are over.

The cough seems to have almost disappeared over the last couple of days, thank heavens!! I really had had enough of it after nearly 8 weeks worth!

For the first time in 4 years we will have the entire family under one roof at the same time this year!! Our older son will have his daughter here until the 28th or 29th, and our son (with girlfriend) will be home from the 26th - 28th from the USA.

Sadly, he only comes home at Christmas - too busy with life and work - so he is missing out on all his nieces and nephews who absolutely adore him - other than the 18 year old who doesn't really like anyone.....

I hope you and your boys have a wonderful Christmas!

Hard to believe that Christmas is less than 2 weeks away now - where has the time gone???

I am the most unprepared for the holidays this year than I have ever been. Our seemingly never ending renovations are still not all the way finished, which means we're still living in boxes, dirt and chaos.....

The tree is up and beautifully decorated, if I say so myself, but not much else is done as far as our usual decorations go. Hopefully my youngest DD, Meaganne and I can get to the rest of whatever decorating we can over the next day or so. There are quite a few things that won't be going up this year because the renos aren't done, so I don't have some of my usual places available for them.

DH FINALLY brought up a couple more totes this evening - one of which has all my unused Christmas cards and mailing list in it, so now I can get those done and in the mail ASAP!

I've been sick since Thanksgiving - the Canadian one which is the first week in October - haven't been able to completely shake the cough, which has really dragged me down energy wise. Everything takes a major effort on my part, and then I need a nap!

I know I've picked a few lost pounds again over these last few months, and boy am I ever having a rough time getting rid of them! emoticon emoticon

It was quiet. My kids are adults and none were able to be here for Turkey Day, but still enjoyed the day with my wonderful husband and our fur babies. Already in full swing for Christmas! Had a party last night. Have our neighborhood Christmas parade and party tonight. Tuesday have a work Christmas party. Here we go!
