Well, I've stopped writing down anything I eat, because I'm not on plan AT ALL. But, thankfully, the scale is being very very good to me (why I act like The Scale is some kind of god is beyond me, but that's the power it has). At least for now. I'm sure there will be hell to pay before I get to December 31st.
Sophie, I am thrilled to report, has made it to school the past 2 days and is fine. She has had some dizziness in the morning, but it goes away quickly and she's enjoying herself at school. Vickie, I agree, a decongestant is in order. Actually, I think I'm going to start her on Claritin and keep her on it for a while and see what happens. There's so much allergy crap in our area that it won't hurt her either way, I'm sure.
After I finish posting, I'm headed to the gym for a run, 3 or 4 miles, we'll see how I feel about Tready after I hit 3. It's just started to rain and is windy and cold, so no outside running for me today.
Here's what's on tap for me the next few days...
Friday--finish Christmas shopping; shop for Christmas dinner stuff; run; dinner with our Church Group Friends
Saturday--laundry; clean clutter from living room; take care of kids; dinner at my mom's for My Side of the Family's Christmas
Sunday--church; nap; wrap, wrap, wrap!
Monday the 24th--more cleaning; more shopping for Christmas dinner; make stuffed chicken breasts and refrigerate for Tuesday night; church at 7 p.m.; wrap, wrap, wrap!
Christmas Day--presents; clean up the wrapping paper storm that will be our family room; get stuff ready for family dinner; bake chicken breasts (DH is grilling salmon, too); greet DH's family at 4 p.m. and serve 20 people dinner at 5 p.m.
December 26 - January 1st--I've got the kids until January 2nd (DH will probably escape to the office as much as he can for "2008 planning"). I'm sure I'll be certifiably insane by then. I'm a work-outside-the-home mom for a reason. Hopefully the little monkeys will enjoy their new toys for at least a week and it will keep them busy.
If I don't check in for a while, you'll know why. I will try to get back here and post some Christmas pictures, because I'm sure you're all just dying to see my gorgeous children with their Christmas haul. Heh.
I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas. May your presents be lovely and your waistbands, stretchy.
