Of course! however you might want to make sure and wait for someone else to confirm my answer as I am not confident. Better yet, why don't you call the Medifast guys because they can help better...
Good morning! Baby got me up at 4:30 hitting me in the head yelling wake up mommy I need dwink...good times. Going to see Santa at 9 with 10,000 other 2 and 3 year olds. Should be a blast..
You have a very powerful mind that can make anything happen as long as you keep yourself centered..
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will..
What you have to do and the way you have to do it is incredibly simple. Whether you are willing to do it, that's another matter...
The only reason this doesn't get a big BAH HUMBUG from me is b/c of all of the cute animals...
The upside to getting up so fricking early is that I have already showered, had coffee, and did 2 loads of laundry, lol..
Is it inappropriate to mention that I just noticed my Olay Body Wash has the words deep and penetrating on the front?..
Sparky is over getting groomed..
No easy task, at this point, for Sparky or for Joe who had to get him there..
It is nearly impossible for him to get in/out of the car at this point and that - combined with his anxiety - and his non-love of other dogs, makes for a very stressful ordeal for everyone involved..
But he is matted and his nails are long and he stinks because we've not been able to take him, so it needed to be done..
The groomer happens to be in love with Sparks (as is everyone) so she went in at 7:30 this morning to take him and focus only on him and try to get him mostly finished by the time she started taking other dogs in at 9:00 when they open..
He's such a good soul and everyone picks up on that..
I still feel crappy. Maybe not quite as crappy as yesterday..
But the gym is not in the cards for me today..
It just won't happen..
I have a 10:30 mani appointment that I really don't want to go to, but I don't want to blow her off, so I will eventually shower and throw on sweats and go..
I'm thinking "Glove You So Much" this time..
Or maybe I'll save that for my next appointment..
I'll see what mood strikes me..
Otherwise, I'm doing laundry and really don't have any plans today..
That's it from me..
Morning Lori and Ang,.
At least the 2 of you are up and about. Sorry about the early morning call Ang. I slept in till 9 and then DH woke me up. Don't know why it happens that way sometimes. Nothing much on the schedule todaywill start wrapping the presents that go to my sons family in TN. Hope everyone has a good one. BTWI'll be sure to use that body wash next timelol...
Shammies, I love the break dances and the lotion..
I am going to my new resale store today. they are having a party and I have a discount coupon. My pants are getting pretty baggy so I am hoping to find a pair of jeans to get me through the next "month"...
Lori - sounds like a day for a good book or movie..
Barb - how are the decorations..
Ang - sorry about the early morning. Can you say nap?.
Hope everyone has a good day. Time for coffee for me...
Lori - cheers to a sparkling Sparky. Great to have a caring groomer. Ginger needs to get in as well. She is a fur factory...
This was so funny I had to share:.
This is just too funny.......
When you have to visit a public bathroom, you usually find a line of women, so you smile politely and take your place. Once it's your turn, you check for feet under the stall doors. Every stall is occupied..
Finally, a door opens and you dash in, nearly knocking down the woman leaving the stall..
You get in to find the door won't latch. It doesn't matter, the wait has been so long you are about to wet your pants!.
The dispenser for the modern "seat covers"(invented by someone's Mom, no doubt) is handy, but empty..
You would hang your purse on the door hook, if there was one, but there isn't - so you carefully, but quickly drape it around your neck, (Mom would turn over in her grave if you put it on the FLOOR!), yank down your pants, and assume " The Stance...".
In this position your aging, toneless (God I should have gone to the gym!!!) thigh muscles begin to shake..
You'd love to sit down, but you certainly hadn't taken time to wipe the seat or lay toilet.
Paper on it, so you hold "The Stance"..
To take your mind off your trembling thighs, you reach for what you discover to be the empty toilet paper dispenser. In your mind, you can hear your mother's voice saying, "Honey, if you had tried to clean the seat, you would have KNOWN there was no toilet paper!" Your thighs shake more. You remember the tiny tissue that you blew your nose on yesterday - the one that's still in your purse. (Oh yeah, the purse around your neck that, now, you have to hold up trying not to strangle yourself at the same time). That will have to do. You crumple it in the puffiest way possible.
Someone pushes your door open because the latch doesn't work..
The door hits your purse, which is hanging around your neck in front of your chest, and you and your purse topple backward against the tank of the toilet..
"Occupied!" you scream, as you reach for the door, dropping your precious, tiny, crumpled tissue in a puddle on the floor, lose your footing altogether, and slide down directly onto the TOILET SEAT..
It is wet of course..
You bolt up, knowing all too well.
That it's too late. Your bare bottom has made contact with every imaginable germ and life form on the uncovered seat because YOU never laid down toilet paper - not that there was any, even if you had taken time to try..
You know that your mother would be utterly appalled if she knew, because, you're certain her bare bottom never touched a public toilet seat because, frankly, dear, "You just don't KNOW what kind of diseases you could get"..
By this time, the automatic sensor on the back of the toilet is so confused that it flushes, propelling a stream of water like a fire hose against the inside of the bowl that sprays a fine mist of water that covers your butt and runs down your legs and into your shoes..
The flush somehow sucks everything down with such force that you grab onto the empty toilet paper dispenser for fear of being dragged in too..
At this point, you give up. You're soaked by the spewing water and the wet toilet seat..
You're e-x-h-a-u-s-t-e-d. You try to wipe with a gum wrapper you found in your pocket and then slink out inconspicuously to the.
You can't figure out how to operate the faucets with the automatic sensors.....so you wipe your hands with spit and a dry paper towel and walk past.
The line of women still waiting...
You are no longer able to smile politely to them..
A kind soul at the very end of the line points out a piece of toilet paper trailing from your shoe. (Where was that when you NEEDED it??) You yank the paper from your shoe, plunk it in the woman's hand and tell her warmly, "Here, you just might need this"..
As you exit, you spot your hubby, who has long since entered, used, and left the men's restroom..
Annoyed, he asks, "What took you so long, and why is your purse hanging around your neck?" ....................
This is dedicated to women everywhere who deal with public restrooms (rest??? you've GOT to be kidding!!). It finally explains to the men what really does take us so long. It also answers their other commonly asked questions about why women go to the restroom in pairs. It's so the other gal can hold the door shut, hang onto your purse, and hand you Kleenex under the door!.
Send this to all women who understand what bonding in the bathroom is all about!.
A Friend Is Like A Good Bra....
Hard to Find.....
Always Lifts You Up....
Never Lets You Down, or Leaves You Hanging,.
And Is Always Close To Your Heart!!! (and your bathroom stall!!!).
Share with anyone who needs a good laugh!..
Hi all! Breakfast with Santa was fun but exhausting...upside was she actually sat on Santa's lap for about 15 seconds, lol..
Then we went to the thrift because I needed black pants for work...2 pairs of black pants, 2 sweatshirts for my kids and a pair of jammies for me...$20.00. I love the thrift store.
Now about to bribe my baby into bed for a nap. Have a great day all!..
- Happy wrapping..
- Yeah for baggy pants..
- The pix you sent of Sam made my day!.
AFM...I got some random deep red that one of the girls picked out for me. Joe had to go to work. Sparky looks gorgeous. I was contemplating Nordstrom, but just don't have the energy. Maybe tomorrow post hair and pre massage/Reiki. I should be out so I'm not sitting here thinking about eating.
I'm just still so tired. Maybe a magazine on the couch. I can't get warm..
I am ready to go shopping. Hope everyone has a good afternoon...
Barb- that is HILARIOUS!!!.
Morning or I guess Afternoon everyone.
Heading on a Christmas train ride with my ODD (I dont like this acronym...) today. Its FREEZING here and the train is old and not well heated so I gotta go dig out our warmest!!.
I had my work party last night and did awesome. I am very proud of how seemless my transition back to Medifast has been. I know there will be temptations down the road and hard days but each function that I attend and dont focus on food is a success!.
Hope you all have a great day!..
Just a few more minutes left to officially say.
Headed out shopping myself - check in later. have a great day!..
Remember to post challenge results for week 5. Thanks...
I freakin' hope ya'll are out buying me presents...
Pretty slow here today. Hope all of you enjoy your shopping. I got all my presents wrapped that go to TN and now I've got them packed in boxes ready to throw away about $50 for shipping charges. I swear only gift cards next yearlol. Hope everyone has a good nightgotta clean up the kitchen. See ya tomorrow...
Boy it is slow..
DH and I are golfing with another couple tomorrow and then lunch. I will be chatting later in the day tomorrow...
Hey Sand - Did you buy anything fabulous today? Happy golfing tomorrow..
Hey Barb - Have a happy evening..
Hi everyone (???).
I'm watching Man v. Food.
I love me some Adam!!!!..
Lori - I found three tops, a red turtle neck for $7.50, a black sweater for $11 and a popcorn bright blue top for $9. I was looking for jeans but they had mainly low riders which result in muffin top and I am not too excited about that look. I received another tax receipt for the stuff I donated. So it was good. I will go back before our Caribbean trip and see what they have to offer. All I really would like now to get by is a warmer winter jacket.
My jeans are not that baggy...
I sure hope with all the shopping, one of my shammy pals is buying me a smartphone or smart gadget that gets internet so I can keep in touch while away from the cord bound computer!!.
We have been between two hospitals and 3 docs for Timbo. I haven't used the regular cell phone to call all the family and friends either. I feel like a broken record of reporting we are waiting for results..decisions..diagnosis..surgery scheduling etc. One young resident doc today told me it is a good thing that Tim is still having stable times to allow for the correct decisions to be made and not rushing him into emergency and wrong surgery. He was a bright spot in my day today..
Not so bright spots has been my Medifast packing, preparation and OP eating with Tim being admitted for the past two days and more. I really want to have some control in my life and to feel positive about myself, but I have been in a addtional stress battle between my Medifast diet at this time and not having to add one more detail to attend to. I still havent made a firm decision, but I may need to stop the challenge with the additional expectations I am setting up for myself. I wonder if this makes any sense to anyone? I have to say that when I get to come home and check computer I am craving our cyper friendship and support. So big thanks for all..
Gotta get some rest while can..DH on Tim watch and listen duty. We are home, hope to be home till Thurs. I have hit the water goal everyday ;-/..
Hugs bbt be back tomarrow.....
Just to share a smile...this is Tim from last year... Disneyland Santa.
This year all he wants from Santa is to be well...I kid you not. that is what he told me. Gotta love this (23 year old) kiddo...
I am so tired I cannot see straight. Busy day off followed by running around and baking, cleaning, and prepping for our cookie exchange tonight. It turned out great, we had a lot of fun..
Will check back inTomorrow. Don't think my loss is that great cuz Tom is kicking my azz right now...
