DYK the official beginning of winter hasn't occurred yet, but I say it's time for Winter DYK!

DYK I need to get out my Christmas decorations and pick a time to get a tree

DYK the Christmas music and movies are already up from the basement

DYK we also have four Advent calendars! (Felt one with pockets for a candy cane, flat paper one with Bible verses behind the doors, a chocolate one for the boys to share and one on my computer from Jacquie Lawson)

DYK MI4 was ok, I sorta dosed off a couple times lol I was up at 6am and really tired lol

DYK After my little nap the movie got interesting

DYK the last Tom Cruise movie I saw was Knight and Day, which I thought was really good.

DYK Today was an awesome day!

DYK Andrew and I exchanged gifts tonight and he got me a Kobo e-reader, I was so super excited!!

DYK Hubby and I talked about that recently and we decided we'll try to separate the crazy man from the acting he does

DYK you're probably not missing that much by skipping his movies, though ;)

CIS "oopsie!" to napping at the theatre

DYK I'm glad the rest of the movie entertained

CIAS congrats on getting an e-reader! :)

DYK we had an unused Chapters gift card, so I bought two Kobo books last night and will transfer them to my Nook soon

DYK my only complaint is that you have to create a new account to buy Kobo books even though you're an existing Chapters customer (as I've been for years)

DYK it didn't take long, I'm just used to the convenience other bookstore sites have of one account for print and ebooks

DYK I am so sorry I disappeared!

DYK first we had out of town family.

DYK then we got the stomach flu.

DYK since we were all sick, we just hung out anyway.

DYK The good thing about getting sick, I didn't eat any junk!

DYK I didn't gain any weight over Christmas, in fact I lost!

DYK that's gotta be a first.

DYK that's not how you're supposed to lose weight ;) ;)

DYK I hope your family will be healthy for quite some time now!

DYK I need to water my tree

DYK it's doing fairly well, but we want to use a different corner of the living room next time

DYK I'm also hoping that we'll have a calm cat next time rather than dealing with a few weeks of the kitten loving the ornaments and biting the lower branches - oy!

DYK he also likes to drink the water!

CIS congrats on your very small gain since it's so easy to overshoot ;)

DYK I haven't weighed myself for a few days at least, but I had lost a few pounds :)

DYK I better keep up with the walking to maintain

DYK I also found an app for my MP3 player (the Cowon D3, an Android currently without access to the actual Android Market LOL) that's a food and fitness tracker from SparkPeople

DYK I need to see if I can find my previous login info for that site so the app will store my input properly

DYK I'm curious about my caloric intake even though I intend to focus on overall nutrition rather than the number of calories in the day
