Masthur

Happy Christmas Eve Eve!  Whew, longish day kind of.  I am on only my third glass of 'wine' (Arbor Mist, blackberry) & I already feel buzzed.  I think it is largely due to the fact that I never slept last night, started my day about 4:30am (work @ 6am today) & only sorta half napped for maybe 20 minutes this afternoon after returning home from shopping for a few last minute small things after work.  I am sipping that wine & listening to 'Despicable Me'.  My son has been watching it, so it is playing.  I took him to see it (& Toy Story 3, as there are always a double feature) at the drive in theater this summer.  Such a cute movie!  I want a minion for Christmas! ;)

After I got done working, which I got out like 40 minutes late because it was so busy!, I just wanted to go home & lay down.  But it was either go shopping today after work when it's crazy or go before or after work tomorrow when it's worse.  So today it was.

I was going to bake some stuff, but I am totally unmotivated & tired to do so.  I did the dishes though, so at least I did something productive.  Oh well, there will be plenty of goodies (somewhat unfortunately, right?) in the next couple days that it won't matter I didn't bring along anything.

I have a Christmas gathering (my son's paternal grandma's family) tomorrow evening (after a nice 8 hour shift at work, which is on the long side compared to most my shifts).  Then I have Christmas morning at home (mostly just my son opening presents) early, followed by Christmas at my son's paternal grandparents, & another Christmas in the evening on my paternal family side.  And I hope to squeeze in at least a stop at my mom's & possibly a friend's in my hometown before or after it.

Weight-wise is okay.  Upset/depression helped.  I have remet my last goal.  I maintained today, but I think that was in part to having to weigh in so early after doing it so late yesterday because of my sleep sched.  I had a darkish moment at work a couple hours in today but I wrote myself a note: "Remember, anything is possible.  Smile, & make every day count."  So corny, but you know what?  Every time I started to feel down, I pulled it out & it helped.

I love the holidays, mostly.  The whole spirit of it, the decorations, family time.  More so now that I have a little one.  I hope you are all having a wonderful time!  I haven't really gotten any comments lately & I don't know if no one has much to respond to to me or I'm boring or everyone is busy.  I apologize if I made any errors in typing this, I am a lil buzzed & while spelling mistakes get underlined, grammatical & sense-making do not.

I love you all so much!  I hope you are doing swell & enjoying the end of the year, the holidays, & not letting any food/weight thoughts ruin it for you, which I know can be hard with the holiday season.  I would be happy just not to gain for the most part over the next couple days.  To meet another goal by year's end would be fabUlOuS!!! but I don't know.  Anyways, I am babbling.  Cheerio!

Sounds like you have a really nice Christmas planned. I'm jealous you've got so much family close enough to visit everyone. I think it was more fun having big, loud, obnoxious Christmases with too many relatives. And of course I didn't appreciate it at the time!

I hope Santa is spoiling your son rotten. ;)
