Yippee!!!!! Finally, got the spirit in me to kick myself in gear to prepare for the Holiday season. Whew!!! finally woke up this morning and thought a week from today is Christmas what am I doing???? Well you see the last 2 yrs have been especially hard not having my parents around. This year is going to be tough but I will prevail. I will miss my friend Bill as well. But Grinch move over, you don't have anything on me.... Santa I have been good this year.
Lots to do today, I did pull out my tree about 2 wks ago and its been sitting in the floor with us walking over it. Its got to go up, I thought about going to the dollar tree and getting a small one to go onto the table and then I could throw it out after Christmas... No more. Big tree is going up, oh no. Decorations I have to pull them out get them on the tree.
Gifts to be picked up, Oh that area is pretty much covered.... I gift all year.. Goodies to be made. Oh better make a list of my final to pick ups..... Lets see ingredients for the sugar free cookies for me... thats important, then there are jerome bars that are a holiday favorite for my family, fudge. Hmmm wonder if I can find a sugar free recipe for that one. Does anyone have a sugar free recipe for a chocolate with walnut fudge they would be kind enough to share with on short notice. I have found a lot of good sugar free recipes this week at Mommy D's , I can backtrack to Mommy d's I don't remember if there was one there or not. Thought I would ask my friends first. Pickles, olives, cheese bites, crackers. Oh and then there is my chicken cheeseball.. Wow I'm way behind. Long day ahead.
And this week I've found a lot of good information in regards to the bariatric (gastric bypass surgery) from a few other bloggers that I'm going to be sharing after I get everything completed.
I have a lot of traveling to do today. Oh My goodness, haven't had my decaf coffee, dressed yet, teeth brushed what am I doing? I'm preparing myself....I had to chat with someone this morning. Yes I'm wired. I hope everyone hasn't been dragging behind like myself. I see where a lot of my friends have been partying already. Thats good. Well think I'll go fix myself a sugarfree french vanilla latte instead of coffee for the holiday season kick in gear day....
Tah Tah for now... I'll report back in later today to let you know how I did.
Have a great day my friends and Happy Holidays to you....
