Hooray...my Christmas cards arrived in the mail. All I gotta do is slap on address labels and drop off at post office

Still gotta get a few presents...men are the hardest to buy for

I didn't exercise yesterday, but I will def make time today

What's everyone else up to today?

ETA~ Scarf Update*** I worked on last nite but I fear it wont be done in time I should have just done a simple single crochet but loved the look of this other pattern and it takes longer to stitch. You have to keep count

Been so busy, with all this snow we've been getting alot of my clients called and there kids are coming up to ski for next week so had to go and reopen there homes. Doing it all myself because my friend fell and fracture her back. Plus sad time of year for me my Dad passed a year ago on the 16th and it's been 2 years since my son passed. Not liking this month to much. Hope to get back to posting more.

Cheryl ss to hear about your mom falling, I must of missed the post. Hope she is doing ok. Yup winter is definately here for us. Got well over a foot of snow and it still snow a little everyday.

Karen wtg on new blue ray wifi. I got to look into something like that. I pay so much for cable and they'er going up again.

Lisa love the new avi, Emmalee is growing up fast, so cute. Hope you get the scarf done. I'm just finishing up my afghan for my friend. Been working late at night.

I'm at the tail end of retail busyiness. Then I will have some time to get back on track.

I don't think I posted about Mom. Some read it on FB. She was walking to her car and somehow tripped- probably the bum tornado leg- hit her knees , forearms, elbows, and face on the concrete. She grabbed a was of Kleenex and put to her split lip and headed for the ER. They stitched her up and checked her out. Lots of cuts and abrasions but she didn't break. she is 81. She says she has trouble getting her knees to bend now to get up and down steps. Her hand was swollen but is better. The stitches in her lip aren't keeping her from talking.

Howdy, Everyone! SS I've been MIA. Guess it's that time of the year when we all get sidetracked?

CJ~SS to hear about your Mom's fall! Dang! She could have REALLY HURT Herself! She's lucky...& glad that she's still Talking! Friend is doing OK. She's having that Cyber Knife procedure done all this week. Yup...still Sweating over here!

Deb~SS to hear about LB's nephew. To your Mom! Yum...Iris Cream! Good Goals 4 the new year!

Misty~I bet this is a difficult Month/time of the yr 4 U! Bummer...about your friend/co-worker! Geez! U Luv Cleaning!! Wow! Nice of U to crochet an afghan for ur friend. Have a pic of it?

Karen~Finding 2G's is a Good Thang! Enjoy ur new Wifi/BluRay!

V~Cute Avi! Good 4 U doing the 5:30a Gym w/DD!

Lisa~Cute Avi! Hope U get your BP lowered Soon! Hear ya on the Holiday Hub-Bub! Luckily, I don't have much to do. Got all my cards sent out & that's about all I'm Doing! Cute how DH said he wanted one of your scarves! I Crocheted scarves a few years back for peeps. Haven't done anything else since!

Well, not much happening here. Scale still is stuck. Been doing the Yoga thing & Paddling. Still having some sleep issues. Ho-Hum.... Just waiting for the Holidays to be over with already! The Commercialization of it all gets to me. Trying to stay away from all those shopping frenzy areas. Bah-HumBug! But, thankful & grateful 4 all of you & all of my other friends/family & everything else that life is giving me & 2 those who I have contact with.
Goal for the new year...Keep up what I'm doing...but, try harder @ it & lose the same dang LBs that I keep losing & gaining back!
Laters!

Misty I hope it's not too hard for you.

Lisa crochet crochet crochet that scarf

Pat. I'm not familiar with the cyber knife tho I have seen ads on TV from cancer institute. I've cut way back on Christmas cards. And presents only for a few family members since most don't do it so it's not hectic here. Just the job is and it's winding down.

Deb how was the Irish cream. I haven't had one

Karen way to go !!!

V are you getting this beautiful weather ? I guess it'll get cooler this weekend but can't complain

Off to spend the day with Mom. Dr. appt tomorrow. Family coming in Sat. It's beautiful out.

Morning!

Karen~Yay on -4!

CJ~I've cut back on the card sending too. It seems every year I mail out less & less. No gifts to send out this year. I sent out Calendars with a card inside. Those were my gifts. Glad your work is winding down? How many family are driving in?

Lisa~That's Right...focus on Love & finishing that Scarf!

Deb~Some of your Irish Cream sure would taste good in my Coffee & along w/my Coconut almond bark.

Scale up this am. Must have been the salami, cheese, hummus & PASTA that I ate yesterday! Dang it! We were on Flash flood watch last night. It rained on & off & looks like we get much of the same for the rest of the day. Had trouble sleeping again last night. Ended up taking an Ambien around 3:30a. Up @ 6:30a. Off to Yoga & then to the airport to pick up a few friends.

Irish Cream for Everyone

Pat that would be a nice drink
it is very hard to have any kind of portion control when it comes to the Irish Cream for sure

today I am making sausage and cheese mini-quiche's
quiet here..L/B went to see his family and the staff have a lunch for Christmas..i didn't want to go alone

quiet time is kinda nice once in a while..even tho im never alone in the building I can lay low for a bit

Deb- Hope the offer goes through on the house... that would be really nice. I did not send the snow... promise.

Cheryl- We are getting hit with the ice storm right now... we are supposed to get a quarter inch of ice followed by 5 inches of snow. yuck
Your Mom sounds like a tough lady! So glad that she did not break anything... that is very good news.

I got all my groceries early today and would ride the whole weekend out by the fireplace except... we have another funeral to go to tomorrow afternoon. I am glad my dh will be home to drive, because I won't drive on ice.

So far we just have rain. Even tho the weather channel says it's freezing rain it's not at our place. How about you V. I don't drive on ice either.

Mom got her stitches out today. She is getting g around better. My brother and his wife are driving from CO. They made it to Salina Ks. Looks like they may be sliding the rest of the way tomorrow.

V~ B careful on that ice!

Deb~ Crossing fingers/toes over here. Yum...seafood pasta! It was just 1 gunshot & then there were no sirens or anything after that?

CJ~ Get better soon! Have any drugs for it? Well, u were sorta healthy?! Glad Mom is better. Hope Bro & SIL make it there safely.

Scale down a bit...but, it does that every other day or so. Did most of my grocery shopping yesterday. It was a Zoo! Have some more to do today. Off to Yoga...Laters!
