Good Morning,

We never saw the "s" word yesterday but we did have a cold rain that brought a chill to the bones.  Today is starting off rather gray and it's going to be a chilly one.  A bit chilly for those New Yorkers going to see the Rockefeller Center tree lighting.

Hi-Ho it's off to work I will go.  Hopefully I will find everyone's UPS packages this morning or they will have landed in their proper destinations.

I'm planning on taking Ricky out for a walk this evening.  I have been so bad about getting him out...

Patty when is your last day of work?  Margo hope your return to cubeville goes well.  Karen how are you feeling?

Time to get myself together for the day ahead.  Hope you all have a Healthy Wednesday!

Good morning! Very cool start up! Thanks, Susan.

I expected a quiet day at work but we were once again so busy. I worked one and a half hours over yesterday. Then I stayed awake  most of the night wondering if I made the right  decision. Not quite sure when my last day is. It should be  this Friday but I'm  going to  offer to work next Tues and Thurs if she needs help. One girl who's last day was to be this fri ended up saying she wouldn't be back period. Not sure what  was up with that.Anyway 6 months  from now I'll look back at this decision and say "Yay, good  for me or I'll be saying  " dumba$$!!!". LOL

Off to decorate at Moms today then home to hang out with Bob. Think DH is heading home  tonight. I am so ready to begin my decorating. Grey  and  gloomy here now but sunshine and  much warmer temps heading our way. 

Hope  everyone has a day filled with health and happiness!  

Miss P

  Happy Healthy Wednesday FOF Ladies!

Who got some great buys on Cyber Monday?  I did.  Macys had polo shirts for dh on sale and so did Eddie Bauer and also got Season 7 &  8 of Seinfeld for laughs at home in the evening.  Didn’t find any other inspiring specials on Christmas gifts for the people on my list but then, some people are hard to buy for…

Monday, I got the last drain & tube taken out – YEAH!!!  I had been in so much pain over the last few days before it was taken out… and kind of freaked me out a bit while watching such a long tube being pulled out from my side like a long computer cable but was Elated when I finally had FREEDOM!!!  I was finally able to lay on my side at night instead of on my back the whole night (not easy…) and able to toss the camisoles that held it in a pocket while I tried to hide it under sweaters while in public (and at home).  Now I am able to wear kind of between a leisure bra and bralette – absolutely NO UNDERWIRE.  I got them from JCP, Bali Sure Size Wirefree bra and wow is it comfortable!  It comes in sizes S/M/L/XL and have to say that it makes an awesome leisure bra and can sleep in it.  These are designed for anyone to wear and in my case, I just stuff the side that is undergoing procedures for an Implant with light weight cotton and no, it doesn’t come out ;-)  Each little thing feels like a graduation :-)

Today, I felt good enough to do a couple of workout dvds: ‘10 Minute Solution Slim & Sculpt’ with a band and ‘Yoga Relax Low Impact’.  Of course, I had to modify them a bit since my flexibility at this point has its limitations but felt so good to just to able to do this much.  I might try and do a bit more this afternoon but will see…

One thing that I would have to say about working out is not to let stress stop you.  If anything, when you feel stressed, RUN towards doing any kind of exercise.  And then do something that makes you smile or laugh: looking at favorite photos, play with pets, listen to your favorite tunes, call a friend…   The mind is such a powerful thing.  Don’t waste it on negativity. 

Wishing everyone wellness and a wonderful day.

PS.  Does anyone have snow yet?
