It used to be only death and taxes, Now, of course, there's shipping and handling, too.


Did any of you do any Black Friday shopping? Maybe its just because I am older now that I don't give a hoot about waiting in line for bargains.
Have a great week.

Nope, I don't give a "Hoot Nor Holler" about Black Friday bargains, but, amazingly enough, my friend back where I used to live, age 75 and with bad hip and knee issues, got up at 4 am and drove 2 hrs. with her daughters to go shopping!! She says she got a lot of stuff on sale, but the lines were murder, and the best part of the day was when they went out for a nice lunch!
I say she had more guts than I would have............

I don't remember any Black Friday's back in the 1960's or early 1970's, when I admit, I used to shop a lot, didn't have kids then though.


See you all tomorrow.

Never did any black Friday shopping. It just wasn't worth it to me. However, Tod did go last year and picked up an all in one, wireless Printer, Fax,copier that was a real bargain.

Sunday menu

brunch: plenty of coffee with cream and a bacon , egg and cheese wrap

Dinner: sliced tomatoes, Kalamata olives, cheese and some roast beef. More coffee

PM Chardonnay and maybe some popcorn.

Nope, no black Friday shopping here either...can't stand crowds on a normal weekend shopping day, so really couldn't take this kind of holiday shopping.

had some leftovers; turkey, dressing, and mixed vegetables about three p.m., a few cuppas in the morning and afternoon...thinking about some popcorn or a magic pop with laughing cow and a diet soda now...we'll see what feels right in a bit.

600 kcals

Monday's Eats UD

Thought I'd get a lot done today; didn't come out that way...but I did balance the checking account and pay bills...just took longer than I expected.

broke my fast at 2 p.m. with biscuits, sausage, eggs, and a tad of jam for the biscuit...trop 50 for the pills...coffee fore and aft.

S. chips, pico de gallo, and fixing a turkey sandwich on Sara Lee light bread, and a diet Cranberry Sierra Mist...love 'em as this is the only time of the year they can them.

That's 1300 kcals and will probably be too full for a snack later.

Mary do you drink any liquids during your fast time? Sometimes I don't feel the hunger but love to have my coffee with some cream in the morning. Was wondering if it was just a food fast you do on your DD?

Tuesday's foods DD

Oh Sharon, could not start the day without my coffee. I can drink it black and have done so on some DD's, but I do like my creamer (read whole milk, now, but I used the nonfat half & half last year when I was losing so much and may go back to it on DD's. Has about the same calories as whole milk, but has higher carbs. I do have caffeine withdrawal so I need to break the habit, but not now...maybe later. Oh, and I also have a lot of water all through the day. I tried the protein drinks and may go back to 'em...we'll see.

had one cup of coffee when I got up and one more when I got back to the house after the trip to the family history center then

ate a lo hotdog and a bit of chili beans at 4 p.m. also a couple carrot & celery sticks

about 500 kcals..will probably have a small yogurt for another 100 later.

just finished snacking on a little unsweetened coconut flakes. Don has the car down getting it's first oil change so dinner should be on the table when he gets home.

B. flax/chia seed and shredded finely unsweetened coconut mixed for hot cereal. Coffee

L. Leftover beef stew with some parm. cheese on top

D. in the oven.

Wednesday's Food UD

OMG...not just an UD, but a UUAD (for you non-JUDDDers, that's up, up and away day)...another day when I had a breakfast before leaving the house and then stuffing the face the rest of the day...couldn't believe the calorie count when I put it into the food diary. Oh well, there's always tomorrow and I haven't had a UUAD in a very long time.

B. coffee, Special K flatbread breakfast sandwich, trop 50 for the pills, and more coffee when I returned about one o'clock.

L. burger on a roll, with cheese and grilled onions, diet soda, small slice pumpkin pie ($1.20 on sale at Wally World) with redi-whip...btw when I say pie, I don't eat the crust unless it's really good pie, like Marie Callender's, Coco's, or mine...

then pick, pick, pick, a few mixed nuts, later another roll, half with peanut butter, half with cream cheese & marmalade, later an ice cream cone sundae...and an alka seltzer

2400 kcals...that'll do me for a long, long time, Hope I can sleep tonight.
