The Holidays

I love all of you. It's hard sometime to feel like you are not alone and I got on blogger today to see how everyone was doing and was reminded how much support is here. thank you all for your kind words and prayers. Having all of you means so much to me. We are taking things one day at a time. 

The holidays have started and Thanksgiving is already behind us. I made all the fixing and a huge 21lb turkey. We have a ton of left overs. I was not losing and eating a ton of food. So I got a fill. A .5cc which puts me up to 6.2cc in my band. It took about a week to kick in but I felt it fully today. I did have a hard time with grits this morning but did ok on a hot dog later in the day. hopefully I will get the results I want.
I got some really good black Friday deals. I got 6 cricut cartridges for $200. they normally run $89 a peice, so I am set for the next 3 yrs.
 My husbands family has been in town since last Tuesday night and is leaving tomorrow after I get home from work. Friday we went to see Happy Feet 2 and dinner then we went to a drive through Christmas light show. My 8yo nephew loved it! On Saturday we went to an indoor water park resort and we all loved it. Today we performed a Christmas tradition of making gingerbread houses. That always turns out to be fun.

We have our work Christmas parties on the 9th and the 10th. Nothing like parting it up all in one weekend. I am still searching for a Secret Santa gift for my person. I am at a loss. I also have one for work and we do gifts that way for the family. We are going to my family for Christmas for about a week. 

I will try to get on more. I miss all of you lovely and wonderful women.
