      Given the fact that I can no longer hold my liquor and was feeling pretty darn tipsy one of those nights....they still must have looked good. HAHAHAH

      hurts my back to wrap gifts. I am thankful that people notice what a nice job i do. When my grown son saw the gifts under the tree, he said one of his best childhood memories was the fact that I always took care in boxing and wrapping presents. that I always made sure there were boxes of all different sizes and shapes with many different kinds of paper and ribbons. It made all that back pain worth it! I guess the good news is, I now wrap them over a period of a few days and always with a nice glass of Pinot gris in hand!

      Clearly she is a bit immature and looking for attention. Well, she got it. And you do look HOT or 50!

  6. Ugh. Hate being sick over holidays. This cold can go suck it.

  7. So according to my scale I am up 7 pounds today. Except that is scientifically impossible. I have had the calories for that kind of gain. I haven't been over my calories, my activity is the same or higher. Oh right, that time of the month. This is why tracking all your food a day weighing yourself all the time is important. You can prevent freak outs by keeping a log.

  8. I cannot wait until Christmas is over. The kids are here and I had no sweets in my house because if I do, I will eat them. So tonight they wanted something sweet and it is snowing. So, we made a homemade dessert with graham cracker crust, cream cheese, whip cream, fresh cherry compote and drizzled the top with chocolate. Just what I did not need in my house. Now, I am sitting here with a full belly and racing heart. And yes....i know i could have passed but i just had a small portion and was good the rest of the day. UGH......

      I was kind of thinking the chloroform would knock me out too. Could not fall asleep until after 2:30 am and then this lousy cold had me up at 6:30. Have to take father n law to the doctor this morning so i can not go back to bed.

  10. I'm a BAAAAAD AntiChick. Just realized with the FREEZING FREAKING COLD today (Saturday started out at 72 and ended at 19, gotta love Texas) I haven't felt like drinking anything today except my protein shake. I'm going to get dehydrated and have yet another migraine if I don't down some fluids!!

      @theantichick, First....don't talk to me about the cold. It has been in the negative temps here is Wisconsin but only after dumping about 10 inches of snow on us.

       

      Secondly...I would really like to figure out why I am getting so many migraines. i too have been on a run for the last 6 weeks. I am using my Dihydroergotomine too often and its so expensive and hard to get that I wish it would stop. None of my usual stuff is working for me.

  11. I am resorting to just drinking hot water to stay warm. Can't drink coffee all day and night and expect to sleep. *Sigh*

      I am so tired......I could use some coffee. Unfortunately I have picked up a nasty cold and it is not allowing me to sleep because it is hard to breath.

  12. I am excited....My sweet granddaughter's birthday is thursday, she will be 13. She has been begging for a laptop for the last 1.5 years. She is an Apple kid and those darn laptops are expensive. Well, they went on sale sunday at Best Buy. Hubby and I decided it was time so we bought her a MacBook Air. We all told her that was not going to happen. The package arrived today in the mail but we wont let her open it until thursday. She is so excited, she has called me no less than 5 times tonight. I am excited for her.

      I am sure the moment school is out she will be calling me again. Or the little smarty pants will call before school tomorrow morning when I am still sleeping. Haha.....

  15. Headed to the hospital to see if my SIL will get a new liver. Fingers and toes crossed that she is doing better and gets her transplant.

      Just got an update from my BIL. Mary's heart shows improvement so they are checking some other things but they may be able to add her to the liver transplant list. We are hoping to find out in the next 12 to 24 hours.

      Thanks everyone for the prayers and warm wishes. I have to believe the prayers are working so far because she has made it this far and we have been told everyday she has a less than 10% chance. Mary is a fighter and she is definitely fighting hard to stay with us. Thanks so much!

      We just came back from the hospital. She is still listed as critical and not stable. We were told today that at this time, she is NOT a good candidate for a liver transplant. This is because now the fluid build up is impacting (putting pressure) on her heart and she would not survive the 8 - 12 hour transplant procedure. They are working to lower the pressure on her heart. She is on a liver dialysis and kidney dialysis machine round the clock and if not for these machines she would have passed away already. She is also still on life support, not breathing on her own. She is aware but heavily sedated and that is helping with the pain. I am very worried for her husband. He has not slept in days and he looks like it. He sleeps with a cpap and has not been able to leave her side other than for a quick bite to eat. Tonight he is going to go home for a few hours and get some rest and a good meal. We were told if things improve, there may be a chance for a new liver and we were also told she needs one so if things dont improve it is clear we will lose her. There is a tiny tiny chance that her liver gets clean enough and it could start to turn around, but then her kidneys are putting out nothing right now. They said, the liver has to get fixed first.

  20. Next person to use the word "cheated" in the context of food gets slapped.

      I agree.....its not cheating it is living and knowing how to plan or those foods that you have to pay more attention to. The 90/10 rule.....I call it.

      I will have to try that. I am going to make barbacoa beef in mine tonight. I have never made it but see it all the time on pinterest and for some reason i crave a little heat in my food. I am also ordering some bread cheese today!

  23. Had my 6 month bloodwork drawn this morning. I ended up passing out. I warned the tech that I get seriously dizzy and lightheaded after a few vials so they were ready for it. That was not a fun an experience.
