Well, the tickle is turning into SORE and guess what...DD16 came home today with a runny nose and is coughing. AGAIN. The 2 of us were the only ones to get sick the first round...and now again. Just lovely.

DD16 said my hair is red red in the light and there is a hint of blueish purple... All i care about is that the grey is gone

Danielle, no don't get sick! I hope you are on the mend real soon. Biting the bullet this month before my birthday and getting my hair dyed. I don't want to go light just my normal color without all the white thingys sticking out of my head. I grew my hair out this fall/winter and will be getting a haircut as well. Oh the things we have to do to look younger. Hubby 's me no matter what but if it makes me feel good about myself, I am all for it.

Take care of yourself lady.

I KNOW!!! I was telling DH that we need to seriously reconsider N. Cali whenever we decide to move as our destination cause they hardly go there I told him maybe living in the OC is the best place to go so we'll be "guaranteed" some playing time.. I dunno what I'm gonna do when they decide they're not gonna tour anymore

Ugh, it really sucks to have grey when your hair is sooo dark KWIM? It's not like you can just pretend they're not there! My hair is soooo long. I don't think I've worn my hair this long since I was 18
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Steller DD yesterday. Hunger is virtually gone again during these days and I love that I wake up on UD mornings NOT starving!

UD today... not sure, but I think we're going to dinner, maybe...I need to plan or it could get scary!

Rings are spinning again. I think the bloat is finally evacuating.

Mmmmmmmm Blue Moon!!!!!! Funnily enough, last night gave myself permission to have one...waiter comes back and says something was wrong with the keg and weren't serving it.. saved myself some calories and went with a light beer

____________________________________

Survived last night's dinner pretty well. I went over calories a bit but it's all good. After giving myself permission to go high cal on beer only to be told I wasn't gonna get it..opted for light beer..guess the universe was determined to "help me" keep my calories lower than I planned I contemplated on getting a "snack" after we picked up DD at work as we decided to go home and watch movies instead of go to the theater....nearly caved and then thought about it, realized yanno what, I don't even feel like having anything else. I think the other part of me considered it just because it's the old m-o of having something snacky while we watch movies.. Instead I just had my water while we watched the new Dredd movie in 3-D.. much better than I ever thought possible BTW... watched The Campaign too... hilarious.

Was VERY happy to see my 49'ers win last night!

Scale *kinda* thanked me for my choices last night. "Only" up .5 of a pound.. pretty good actually for an UD and a higher one than usual, at that. Hoping that I'll find that 228 that I had prior to Vegas, at some point in the next week or so...That would be amazing!

Been a busy morning...cleaned out and reorganized our garage...phew! Glad it's done and over..I was f-f-ffffrr-r-reeeeezzzinggggg down there! Of course we finally get around to doing it when the temps dip to their lowest!

I love Blue Moon, too! Yummy.

I'm trying to take a break from drinking, but had 2 Angry Orchard Crisp Apple hard ciders yesterday. I think they were 3 WW + apiece, so not too bad.

Happy Monday, lady!

Thanks everyone, it's much appreciated!

Yeppers, I am full blown sick. It's all in my chest and head and I'm thoroughly miserable..

Slept in late today. I nyquil'd myself last night because the coughing was hurting so much.. I don't feel like I slept well at all which is a bummer, it only adds to my mood DH has taken over the reigns today and is running around after the girls and errands. I'm not allowed to move. Gotta love the hubbs!

Had a great DD yesterday. Today's an UD and I hope I get to enjoy it, I hate the idea of a good UD going to waste

Scale is moving down!!!

Awwww, sick again?!? That's no good! Those germs must see you coming right now. I'm so sorry.

You'll be out of the 30's in no time! You're due for some nice losses. I hope you're able to enjoy this UD. And how great that DH takes over for you when you're under the weather.

Feel better, friend!

Ohhhhhh nooooo!!!! After having the flu for like 2 weeks before Vegas..went there still coughing and hacking..came home and caught that gastro thing TOO! Lasted for like 4 days..most miserable time in my life! Lost the gastro thing, kept the cough....and now here we are again weeks and weeks later and I am right back where I was with the dang flu over a month later...it's a damn good thing that I don't *have* to talk because I have no voice I am so congested. Hoping he feels better soon, that sucks when our kiddos get sick. I will definitely be watching TBL tonight, goooo Jillian!

Ugh, this being sick thing is for the birds!!!! Everything hurts and no more blowing my nose or coughing, please!

What I'm thankful for at this moment is the realization that I could've had to worry about school starting today feeling like "this".. it's the small things
DD18 started back today, I was a lil jealous actually...loved the challenge of school. At the same time, I am looking forward to the challenge of how much weight loss progress I can make by May.

Cassidy, Dolvette is just cute as can be! I think you, me, & Jayce will have to share.

Thanks ladies! I am actually feeling ALOT better today. There is something to be said for absolute bed rest. I woke up around 3am with an absolutely horrible sore throat, and thought OMG it's getting worse! Forced myself back to sleep until about 8:30 and woke up feeling rested and no more sore throat. So weird, but I am thankful! Still coughing but it's one of those good ones and it's not every 30 seconds

Really really really hoping that I am done with cold stuff so I can move on and actually be productive for the new year!

Scale should arrive this afternoon. Will use it and compare with the old one in the a.m. Hoping it's a keeper!

DD today. Back to freezing hands & feet.
