Been so busy and been off plan, just eating on the go. But back on plan today. DH had a rough time with the skin cancer surgeries this time. Had to due skin grafts on 2 of them and the stitches kept breaking and had to keep going down to Drs which is over an hour away. Then they find one in his ear canal and they won't touch it because of his transplant so we will have to go to Tuffs in Boston. They have been setting up a team of Drs now and should hear a date soon.

Deb wow you home is beautiful. Love all your new things. So glad to see you still have Teddy Going to make that cabbage, got 2 heads in the fridg from neighbor. Stuffed peppers tonigh.

Cheryl the storm totaly missed us. So glad. But it's icy and cold here too. Glad you stayed in. I love it when I can just stay in an look out the window. Doing most of my shopping on line too. And alot of certificates.

Karen good way of sneaking in those goodies. Hope your having fun with your sis.Did you decorated your tree yet? funny how the little ones get us back in the holiday theme

DH is the worst, and DD25 is second.....DS29 just refuses to eat if he thinks something is healthy..

They all grew up with our mothers feeding them whatever desired for 25 years.......... and now I have to break the news that life has changed (or at least the menu)

Misty~SS DH is going through so much! Hope all goes well with his next Surgury!

Deb~SS you were in a funk. Too bad those young kids got preggers so soon.
Getting in the holiday spirit should help you feel better. Lovely pix of your place!

CJ~Get most of your work driving all done? Yes, GF is out of the hospital...but, now she has to go back in to have Cyber-knife surgery on a tumor on her optic nerve! This has been a Rough Year for her.

Karen~Good idea on the sneaking in healthy ingredients for your family!

Not much happening here. Scale doing the up/down thang. Got most of my cards done & mailed out my calendars. Sore from yoga. We did too many Triangle & reverse triangle poses & we had to hold them. Whew! Wonder how she's going to Torture us today?!

Deb- You must know my thinking very well... I was wondering who that was in the pic on fb, but I did not want to be nosy. It is sad about the cancer but she does not look sick, it was a very nice picture.

I know several people right now that are battling cancer. Some are doing much better than others, and some are fighting it for a second or third time. Very scary stuff. It really makes you appreciate your health.

We are coming out of the deep freeze a little bit and the sun is even shining. I am very glad about that.. dark days do get me down.

I have enjoyed the low carb chili for the past few days. But it is gone now. I have a roast in the oven and am drinking my water better this week.

My daughter and I are planning to get our work out routine back on track. Both of us are wimpy about getting up at 5 and heading to the gym when the weather is nasty. She is getting married in May and I am her workout buddy.. it is good for both of us.

Well got my butt to the gym again today. The scale seems to be moving up a little everyday. Not sure why, maybe stress but you'd think I'd lose. Not eating bad but getting so frustrated. Sure didn't want to gain this month for sure. They got a surgical team together for DH and going for the 1st consultation Jan 6th at Tufts in Boston.

Deb made that roasted cabbage yesterday, wow it's so good and taste so different, but I did have to cook it longer than they said.

Pat still sending prayer that you friend get better fast and that the new year is a healthy one for her.

Cheryl how much snow did you get. We didn't get much, so glad cause I have to shovel.

Karen did your sister go back today?

Sister flew off today........now I can get back to a somewhat normal routine, but at least it is MY routine.

Scale is higher than I ever said I would let it creep up too. Got to get it back down.
Wish me discipline.....luck isn't working!!

Karen wishing you discipline !

Misty how is DH? And how are you doing? I'm not sure how much we got. 2-3" with each storm. It was powdery so easy to sweep off. Our boonie roads are a wreck. Grit your teeth driving up and down hills and across low water bridges til you get to a main road.

V- a buddy always makes exercise more fun. And a little competition.

Pat aloha. Your home state snowed in? Been thinking of you over there in the heat and humidity. Poor thing ! sorry to hear your friend is still having problems.

Deb how did fun night go? Or is it still going?

Im going to try this...

I don't own flour so I will use parm cheese instead

I have heard that soaking chicken in buttermilk makes it really tasty

Must have been a good party

I have used buttermilk. It also makes a good crust when you use flour with it. Might help the Parm. stick.

Deb- The chicken dish looks delicious, let us know how it turns out with the parm/buttermilk. I like using buttermilk when coating chicken. Hope you all caught up on yer rest after all that partying...lol.

Karen- I am not superstitious, but I know people that are. I have an Aunt that will not fly on Friday the 13th... Fridays are always catch up days, and I never ever seem to catch up.

Cheryl- How is your weather? Looks like they are forecasting some ice/snow for some parts of Missouri. My mom is in KC and they are getting ready for some bad weather for the next few days.

Our weather is warmer today with some rain off and on. It is too warm to freeze right now, which is fine by me. But, we may have some ice/snow tonight and Saturday Morning. This morning I am off for coffee with my Dad and oldest dd and grandbaby. Then errands and cleaning my sisters house. She is working 50 hours a week and is paying me to help out... so extra money in my pocket, and a clean house for her going into the weekend.

I hope everyone has a safe, productive, healthy weekend!
