Well I was up by a pound but that is ok with me especially with the stress that I have been under. This time of year it is really hard to maintain never mind adding life's pressures to the mix. I apologize for not posting more but I'm so tired after working 12 - 14 hrs/day that basically I just do not have the energy.
It's been quite an exciting time in my life. On Sunday my niece and her mom came up from Calgary for a surprise visit. Not only was the visit a surprise but so were some of the events that happened while they were here. Lelia has never met my parents (her grandparents) as her parents separated when she was a baby. So we were sitting around chatting and she mentioned she was now ready to meet them. My mom has not been in my home for over 3 years and has just recently begun to speak to me again. I called my dad and told him that Lelia would like to meet them and could they come for tea. Now I knew my dad would come but never dreamed my mom would. She did.......at first she wouldn't talk to anyone but by the time she left she was talking and even a smile crossed her face once in awhile. Thank you God for small miracles.
Saturday one of my co-workers and I did a baking marathon. We baked for 14 hours, now I know that probably seems a bit excessive but we have several girls in the office that have just recently had surgery and I know they can't do any baking for their families this Christmas. So we have made up trays to take to them.
Christmas activities are moving along nicely. The upcoming days/weeks are pretty much filled up on a daily basis. It always seems like there is a big build up and then poof it's over before we know it.
Well that is pretty much my week in review. Today I am heading to the clinic for my annual mammy squeeze then tonight some of us from work are heading to the first co-workers for a visit.
Take care everyone and I'll be back soon.
