You better watch out...

'cause Santa Claus is coming to town. I feel a bit like Mrs. Claus tonight. I finished wrapping all my gifts for my Stocking Pal for tomorrow night's gift exchange. I elected to go with a blue and green non-traditional color scheme and, if I do say so myself, the packages look very festive. I filled two huge bags and all that is left to do is wrap the gifts I made for everyone, put the brownies, salsa and chips in the car and figure out what I am going to wear.

I currently own exactly 2 pairs of pants and 2 pair of shorts that fit me. This is not a bad thing. Since last April I have gone from a very tight size 14 (it was the having to purchase a size 16 one time that drove me to Weight Watchers)to a comfortable size 10. I have 7 lbs. to go to goal and then have to maintain it for several weeks to get my Life time membership. This is the best Christmas gift I could have given to myself. I have more energy, more flexibility, and more fun now!
Merry Christmas to me.

E did not get an A+ at the a matter of fact, he got somewhere in the vicinity of a D. His heart meds are not doing their job. His heart beat has returned to its erratic and inconsistent beating. He goes Tues to the dermo dr. to get his stitches out and to find out if the melanoma is gone. He goes back to the cardiologist on Wed. for more tests and on Thurs to find out what we need to do next. At least there is a back up plan and we may be looking at a pace maker. Getting old is a b-tch! That much is for sure.

The best present Santa could bring me this year is two fold: my honey's health improved and a successful and happy pregnancy for Kristen and Chris. That's all I want Santa, Baby "so hurry down the chimney tonight"!

Have a great weekend!

It is my fervent hope that the coming year brings an abundance of GOOD things to all of us. There have been too many sleepless nights and anxious days, and it's time we had a break from all of that. I'm toasting to E's health, and the vigor of those twins. Bring it on!
