Hello from the deep freeze!!! It has been brutal cold here and I know most of the US has been very cold this week. We had a BIG snow storm yesterday and just bitter cold today!!! I haven't been here for awhile AGAIN!! I have gremlins in my house I swear!!! My computer crashed but thank goodness for a good friend of mine that used to work with, I got it fixed free of charge. People still do good deeds!!! Thanks Larry!!! I had a birthday while I was gone!!! I had a pretty good day. With gifts from my DH and kiddos and an ice cream cake and yes I ate some!!! I'm still doing well on my weight loss 59.2 lbs down this morning!!
Christmas is sneaking up on my fast and my kids are so excited and counting the days!! Ash brought home a bell from school with a paper chain hanging from it with the days left until Christmas on it and every morning she takes a link off until it is all gone. She said tonight, "Mom I really like this Christmas week, meaning month, it is really fun!". Both the kids helped decorate the tree so I have lots of ornaments in the same spot but I left them right where they put them!!! It is perfect that way!!
We have had a run in with the flu.. Brandon got it on my birthday, so he and I were up every hour on the hour dealing with that and then the next day Ash got it and DH and I thought we had avoided it... wrong!!! So far DH is okay but I got hit yesterday afternoon and still feeling pretty puny today!!! But am starting to feel human again so I hope I'm over it by tomorrow!! And I hope DH doesn't get it. He isn't working much because of the snow and doesn't need any down time for the flu.
I hope this finds you all well and enjoying the magic and wonderment of the Christmas season!!! Until next time, peace on earth and good will to men!!!
