Welcome to a new week!  How was your Thanksgiving?  I had a lovely time with my family - ate too much pie -- may have to go into rehab to get over my pumpkin addiction....

Anyway, it's a new week, and a new chance to eat healthy!  What are your plans for the day?  I have grading and planning to do.  I also want to shop around the internet to see if I can find any reeeeeeeeeally outrageously good cyber-Monday sales. 

Have a marveloso Monday!

HI Buddies.

Karen: glad you had fun and I love anything pumpkin, any way shape or form and I will eat it.

Today I have a massage then picking up my friend and we are going to pay for the short overnight bus trip that isn't until next april, they go to vera bradley factory sale in Indiana.  I guess I figure a need a vera wallet to match my coach purse.

I have accepted bus trips are in my future, any thoughts to travel to Europe just aren't going to happen unless I go back to work and the thought of working about gives me a panic attack.   I lost some sleep saturday night after getting a letter on how high medical insurance will be in 2014, it doubled in 2013 and will double again in 2014.   So I am trying to use my nest egg wisely.

After my friend and I stop at bus trip place we are going to lunch. 

will do 2 mile Leslie before I walk Rudi outside.  She was a spoiled 2yr old at bedtime last night, but I kept my calm as she was trying to snap at me, she does that some of the time, but not every night.

Have a good day ladies,  love,  Josie
