Hope you're feeling better todayHi everyone,
Just a quick drop-in, I'm feeling terrible today Sore throat, achy all over, headache, but I'm trying to stay at work b/c of a meeting we're having this afternoon
And funny, this morning I'm not that hungry. Go figureIve been having that problem with breakfast. Im not ready to eat at 5:30 AM so I eat something very small, but by the time I get to work, Im ready to eat. Im working on it. to you.
Wow, sounds like you got a ton doneAfter DD2 got on the bus I headed to the mall. Got there 10 minutes before it opened. I met an employee of the Disney Store on the way in so we got chatting. Then I saw that they had the soft Rapunzel doll that was not available at the World of Disney store last week. And all the plush dolls were buy 1 get 1 so I got the Rapunzel doll and a Stitch plush in pjs that DD1 will go nuts over. Then I got my dad a Sears gift card and headed up to get my DB and DSIL a Pottery Barn gift card. Then I headed to Build A Bear and was able to use all $35 in certificates I had. I got a Santa outfit, a C3PO costume and a Han Solo costume and it only cost my $9!!!! I was out of the mall by 9:30!!! Next I headed to Target and got supplies for DH to make fudge and a few other things including my Peppermint light ice cream. I then ran into Staples to get a few gift cards there. Then I headed home to put the ice cream away and then went to the PO and grocery store, CVS and a gift store that my mom loves to get her a few things. THen I came home to wait for the kids and get the rest of the Christmas cards done which DD1 helped me with. We made some mint chocolate chip cookies. I had a little bit of dough and one cookie. I had a sandwich for lunch and for supper I had a protein shake and one slice of cheese pizza. I've been drinking a lot of water so I should be ok.
Oh that poor girl, that is much worse than what I went through and to pass out on top of everything. I hope she's starting to recoverPoor thing, the pain was so bad, she got up at 4am thinking she was going to be sick, passed out, hit her head, and they couldn't get her up. When the ambulance finally got her to the hospital, they removed 5c. of blood from her abdomen, preliminary diagnosed as ruptured spleen, sent her to a larger hospital, where they found the ruptured cyst. Because of all the diagnosis, she has a very large incision which is impeding her recovery. Hope she got to come home last night, but I haven't heard yet.
Oh no, doesn't it seems so bitter sweet? So sad that this might be the last year for Santa. I have been hearing that a lot from people this year. A friend of mine said her daughter won't let her read the Christmas list that she wrote on the computer this year. She thinks she's testing her, which is probably right. My niece is 10 now, I wonder if she's on the fence too. I'll have to ask my sister.Good morning! I thought I'd have ample time to post this morning, but michael woke up and came in my bed an asked if I was the tooth fairy. It was so deja vu, when I was a kid, I remember coming in my mom's bedroom when I had lost a tooth and she was sitting at her bureau putting her hair in curlers and I asked her if there was a tooth fairy, and she said no, then I asked about the easter bunny, and then santa. Of course I remember her easily answering me but I had a hard time telling michael the truth. I kind of felt him out and but I did say that yes, I was his tooth fairy, and he was just fine with it. I saved his teeth, and showed them to him, and he thought that was cool. He was about to go get dressed and then asked about the easter bunny, so we talked about that. I suggested he go watch a quick show before school, in hopes that I can ward off the santa talk right now. I know it's coming, but I'd love it to wait til 12/26. That boy is growing up. Bittersweet feelings, but so grateful for all I have in my life today.
DVCcruiser-I'll send you a pm later about our dentist. We've had some issues, and changed dentists a few years ago. I think most kids start around age 3, but I'm not sure on that. Michael goes to fun club run by danvers rec. It's the after school program run at 2 schools and it's very reasonably priced and he loves it. They do lots of fun things, and it's run by mostly young adults who have mostly been there his full 4 years so far. In town, there is that, and the Y. When he was in K, it was part time, so he did the Y on his 2 days off, and fun club on his school days, and we both like the fun club better, but I know many people who go to the y.
Thanks for the after school info, I will keep that written down somewhere since I know I'll be needing it some day. I actually signed up Dylan for a nice preschool in town that's hard to get into. I signed him up before he was even born, but the daycare he goes to now has preschool too, so I'll probably end up canceling the other one. The daycare preschool is 7:30-6:00 so it's better than the other one which is only 9-1.
Very few friends knew he would be there, and even as I waited (and not very patiently) for him to arrive, my heart was going pitter patter (in a good way), knowing that my main mouse woud be there. ......here is my reaction when he came in:
Everyone else was watching Mickey; my dear friend Patty knows me well enough to have been watching me and to catch my reaction.
That picture is priceless, I love it!
Yahoo, great jobOh WOW I just found out I was this past biggest loser. So cool.
Susan- Thanks so much for your spreadsheet! Dont worry, I like to look at the details too so your spreadsheet will be so helpful.
You're welcome on the spreadsheet.
Okay, I have to apologize, but I can't remember who I was writing to about Vitatops since it was a month or so ago, but they mentioned wishing that there were pumpkin flavored ones. Anyway, yesterday, bam guess what was in my email box? An email from VitaTops with the new flavor. Pumpkin spice
Congratulations to all our losers and to everyone for sticking around. It was great meeting everyone and keeping myself motivated at the same time. Happy Holidays! and here's to another great challenge in the new year
