Whatever holiday you celebrate, I hope you have a lovely one.
As for me and my family, it is Christmas, not that I consider myself religious.
Today all I consider myself is sicker than a junk yard dog!!!
Could just be my weakened system, despite taking daily vitamins and d d d, I am still feeling like my iron is down, anemic, must get that tested soon.
Could be from being out in the cold air all day yesterday, and Sunday, out in the rain, delievering home made candy and cookies, but it was worth it, I got to sit 30 minutes with my friend SM and it was wonderful, he is spending Christmas at home with his family and not in some cold lonely jail cell and he is so warm and giving and he enjoyed the candy I made for him.
I cannot believe that I started getting achy and sore throat last night and today its full on.
But, regardless, I have baked a ham, cooked a chicken and will make the dumplings tomorrow morning.
I have the turkey roasting and the eggs have been deviled, the cheeseball is chilling. and I will make cookies with kisses tonight once the turkey is done.
Instant potatoes, lets face it, not everything can be done by scratch. the ham and potatoes will stay here for us to eat on over a few days, but the turkey and chicken and dumplings, eggs, and desserts will go to my moms tomorrow.
This is crazy, so much food, and my sister is also cooking as is my dad.
So, we will have only about 16 to eat, and enough food for at least three times that many and lets not forget leftovers.
I weighed in today, it is Tuesday afterall and no gain, no loss, the same as it was in the doctors office on Dec 12th.
Not too bad considering I have sampled cookies and buckeyes etc.
I hope to remain grounded tomorrow and not overdo.
Cant wait to see the little one, my sons girlfriends little daughter, who I have bought for way too much it seems.
I have not had a little one to buy for in so long.
I babysat her last night and poor little thing was sick too, I bought her some kids cough syrup and we took her to see the live nativity but we couldnt find Santa.
Woke up this morning, happy, despite the sore throat, have been drinking warm liquids and had to take a little mucinex but I am happy, my family is together, all but my sister in law, who is still in the hospital, but she is doing better and her situation is improving. and I woke up to snow, not much, flurries mostly but it was snowing on Christmas eve and that is always a welcomed sight.
Have received a few gifsts from friends so far, my best friend bought me a lovely purple leather purse, and I got a scented candle and some home made cinnamon candy.
So, everyone have a safe, and warm Christmas and remember the reason for the season, whatever yours is, for me its togetherness and being with my son and with each year we add a new member, next year I will have another great nephew, Colt.
And she exclaimed as she signed off, Merry Christmas to all and to all, dont eat too much.
