Counting the hours that is for sure!!!!!

What a sweetie you are for giving up your jammies! Your nieces and nephews are so lucky to have an Auntie like you. I really REALLY miss my little nieces, it's been a year since I've seen or spoken to them Love them like my own so it's like my heart being ripped out. Enjoy those kiddos and love 'em up enough for both of us, K?

Well poo, no short hours today?? They're trying to tell Bryan that too that they'll have a full day tomorrow til 8pm... efff that!

OMG, Amber you are too funny! And it's so nice that you share Nan with your ex.

I hope you, Tony and the kids have a wonderful Christmas!

12:40 I got early dismissal, went to Old Navy got myself and Tony Christmas jammies, LOL And a coat for $9, that was a steal, I had a $30 voucher got $210 for $60 that was a score, so only $30 I paid cash!!!!

Then great pedicure and eye brow wax, I am feeling all spiffed up!!!

when boss called to say I could leave I had not eaten lunch, so I had a day of fasting, not good I was so hungry I could scream!!! So I had a 1/2 grapefruit and 150 calories shake and nothing else from 6:30 til 4:40 OMG so we went to Mexican but I only ate 1/2 of my dinner and boxed the rest so I wasnt such a hog! LOL Drank a bottle of wine though but there were 3 of us!!!! Now I got roped into helping Tony wrap his gifts, good Lord!!! I am all done so now I have to help him!!!

THen he wants these date walnut cookies, well good thing I am allergic to walnuts so I guess we will be baking, cost me $20 for the dates and walnuts, he better like them, that could have been spent at Old Navy, LOL Got him those gloves that let you still touch your phone thought he might like that.Oh and got a new WW shirt at ON, very hot pink with a different pic, $8, that was exciting!

Got snowman jammies there so I am feeling better!!!!

Well my calm Christmas demeanor has now exploded, there are date nut cookies everywhere, and then Bobby was complaining those cookies were gross and that I am terrible mom for not baking, so he settled for oatmeal with chocolate chips, so far so good for me no cookies, but the eggnog with amaretto came out, LOL So I am drinking and we are having fun, decorated the house some more with things I found shoved in the closet, LOL Bobby is playing songs on the French Horn, its a fun night!!!

Glad you have your own jammies to snuggle up in. Now everyone will be happy.

We just spent several hours in traffic. Hubby decided he wanted a different wine than originally planned for Christmas Eve and several bottles of the same kind so off to Costco we went!! The parking lot and store were manageable, it was just the traffic getting to and from and then we had to go to Kinko's to FedEx some papers. We were quite glad to get back to our driveway!! The gas station was almost empty - that was nice.

Nice you got to get off early, Amber. A lot of people will have longer weekends which will be nice for those that work.

Hugs to ALL

Oh SB the traffic was horrendous today here too!!!! OMG everyone was everywhere and they were all in a hurry!!! LOL I wish we could buy booze at our Costco's maybe someday, we loved that in Vegas, booze was cheap there, here in PA, you buy wine and liquor at the Wine and Spirit shops, beer at a beer distributor, they used to have no Sunday sales, but now some places are open, and a few select stores like Wegmans will sell beer and let you buy 12 bottles!

Cookies are done, finally!!!!

Made cookies with DGS. Now have to make gf ones for DH. He is miffed we made ones with gluten! LOL

Bottle of wine calling my name in fridge, but going to wait till maybe tomorrow night.
Yay for getting out early! ...and new jammies Most of my comfy ones are too big. I need to shop for some cozy ones that fit better. Will check out after Christmas sales!

Enjoy the holidays hun!

Yeah freaking kids!!!

I had sex last night cause I wanted to, I just wanted to, I was so glad I felt the urge! Maybe those new b vitamins are helping, or maybe cause I was also fully carb loaded? This excited Tony, I said I think the correlation is more work and stress than anything, so we will see what happens, I feel so bad about it all, I wish I could get into more,I am going to try over the break!!!!! Poor Tony he said he asked Santa to restore his wife's sex drive,LOL What a way to start a marriage, LOL I am sure he is rethinking that!!!! LOL

Merry Christmas Eve girls!!! I want you to all have fun and enjoy the next 2 days!!!!!

Thank you Amber! It is a special time. I am so envious of your Gram stories. My granny passed away 3 years ago and I miss her so much! We had so many special times together. I am so glad that I have such good memories!

I have been reading some books I got at the library this week about diet and exercise. They didn't have the book that Twyla recommended about weight training. But I did get the newest edition of the Body for Life book that Illeen recommended. I think I will follow the BFL way of eating for a while and the book explains weight training. I need all the help I can get in this area until I can afford a personal trainer!

You are so funny girly I'm sure Tony thoroughly enjoyed last night! I think there is a total correlation between work and stress that causes that drive to go waaayyyyy down. I had huge issues with it when I was working a high-stressed job that was physically demanding and had me up and at work by 6am every day.. definitely keep on with the vits and follow through with the thyroid testing you wanted done!

Merry Christmas Beautiful! I hope you have a very blessed and wonderful holiday with your amazing family! Love you!

MERRY CHRISTMAS - May you have a lovely weekend with your wonderful family. I have so enjoyed following your journey for the past 6 months and getting to "know" a remarkable woman.

And...MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of the other wonderful people I have met on Amber's journal.

Oh what a lovely day and night, we are home now, I have not been posting pictures so I thought I would share some with you all for Christmas, I hope everyone is having a fabulous Christmas Eve, we went to Mom's and my aunts, and then my favorite church in my hometown, beautiful candlelight service that I love, they have a wonderful pastor that tells the best stories that help you remember the reason for the holiday!

So I just got home and thought I would share these with my special girls!



This was Bobby at his Christmas concert with his French horn!!!!





The tree at Rockafeller Plaza in NYC!!!!


You know who this is!


Me and my not so little man today!


Me and the hubs!!

Can someone say Mink Coat???? OMG he was so slick I was rushing to get out of here and he is like let me help you and he and Bobby had the goofiest look on their faces and they pulled it out, OMG I love this coat!!!






It was meant to be it had my initials on it, and he removed the other D, LOL

this is my niece and nephew and Bobby the ones coming this week, so cute



Wonder woman in her size 12 dress, a little worn til the end of the day but oh well!


Merry Christmas, it was a great day and night, I hope you are all off having fun and making memories!
