Began the day waking up to a very small amount of snow on the ground, but it was our first of the month and it lasted through most of the day. I dutifully headed to the gym and watched a fun renovation show (twin is a realtor and one is the construction guy). Afterwards I headed to pick up my Bountiful Basket and was able to give my persimmons to these sweet older ladies that were so excited to see them and I didn't care for them. I kept busy doing stuff around the house the rest of the day and then off we went to the Christmas party.

The party was fun, but we did have a slight meltdown at the end of the gift exchange as Isaac was totally disappointed in what he got after having it built up so big in his mind for days and being obsessed over one red bag. At least he held it together until the end and then he headed for the bathroom to cry it out. I did great with the food too. I had a bowl of the soup I took as I knew what was in it and then had a couple breadsticks and one small sugar cookie. I had taken a bottle of iced tea with me as well.

Tomorrow.... worship, lunch at home, Bible quizzing at 3:30, hopefully grab something to eat and then Isaac and I will go pick up my dad and take him with us to the Christmas musical. Will be very cautious at the dessert social that follows the musical.


I've made it a full week!!!! I am so proud of myself for sticking to it so solidly. I think I can do it this time! No....I know I can do it this time!

    Yay for day 7 of the soda challenge. And yay for Isaac hold it together. It does sound like he is getting some control over the emotions, and that is a big step!

    YES YOU CAN!! If you made it through the first week, then you can MAKE IT all the way!!! It only gets easier now. (Unless you have a 'trigger food'. For me, it's pizza, and it took a LONG time for me to not get pop to drink when eating pizza!) Sounds like your party went good!! Way to go!!!
