today i'm happy because it's been snowing all day and i'm stuck at home with my husband and son! we're having a great day and enjoying the christmas tree and yummy food and having fun.

I lost 78 pounds with SparkPeople and I've gained most of it back because I didn't make a PERMANENT lifestyle change; I'm back because I know the support here is an essential component to success. I'm practicing the EAT TO LIVE lifestyle and feeling healthier and happier every single day.

Hi CJ:

Glad you liked it. Of course, my hair has a mind of its own, so I never quite know how it's going to turn out.

Today's simple pleasure: DH's oral surgery went well this morning. emoticon

Jane - I had to laugh - I had the worst hair day today. It started with bed head and then progressed to hat head. My daughter made a reference to a rooster tail at one point .. Definitely not a good one for me! OF course the laughs about it were wonderful!

While out for dinner (which we rarely do!) I rested my hand on my husbands chest as I walked passed him to go to the buffet (we can talk about that buffet later...ugh LOL). It just felt good to touch him, and gave me warm fuzzies. :)

It is a big deal. There are some husbands, who, unfortunately, forget to say it at all sometimes.

Amen to that! I am astounded when some women choose not to vote as they wish to not get involved, or they are 'too busy'. I have never missed an opportunity to vote since learning of the courageous women such as Emily Pankhurst and her daughters in England, and Nellie McClung in Canada and what they endured to gain the right to vote.

I will go to the polling station and decline my ballot, I have spoiled ballots when I did not like the choices available, but I ALWAYS make my way to the polling station to exercise my right.

*gets off her soapbox*

Okay, rant over.

I agree Rita!

Simple pleasures for me today: a hot drink on a cool morning, watching the beautiful sunrise with my dh, getting some uninterrupted time on the computer.
