    Good morning ladies!

    Well my diet is shot. I have chocolate candy and soon chocolate cake in the house, and more coming on Sunday. But starting on New Year's I will be good!

    Kevrit - I recommend We Can Do Hard Things podcast, episode 'How to Let Go of Perfection this Holiday'.
    What if you are the gift. <3 Just as you are. <3
    (Tomorrow they have a follow up with listeners' contributions. :D )

    It made me cry.

    You are a beautiful person who doesn't have to pretend to be anybody. Be yourself and allow others the space to be themselves. (But remove yourself from harm)

    Sue in WA - It's sunny, chilly, and 32F here at my house. No snow - a surprise since the weatherman was saying inches forecast for here a couple days ago. They seem pretty confident about freezing rain tomorrow night and into Friday morning.

    Kim and Barbara - How did you fare with the earthquakes? Feel anything? News guys reminded us again this morning that our area is way past due. :#

    Tracey - I see Edmonton had -30 F last night with a high of -15F predicted for today. :o That 32F at my house seems balmy! How are you faring?

    Barbie - your walk in the snow was a fine workout!

    Not a lot going on, nose stuck in books these days.

    All is good here. <3

    Nothing special, just work. I was a nice guy and volunteered to come in tomorrow and they said I should.

    Did I ever get a pleasant surprise. The guy who we talked to about the drain actually showed up to do it. A few days ago he texted me wondering if he can do the excavation at the same time as the drain. I just said that since this isn’t the time to plant grass, I’m afraid of erosion. Finally, I said “why don’t we just do both in April” But he showed up today to do the drain!

    The guy from the roofing company is supposed to be here today to pick up the insurance check.

    My sinuses are really acting up. Took a Sudafed in the night, now another one. I’m also feeling a bit congested, not sure if it’s because of the sinuses or not. I can’t say that this is the reason, but yesterday Jerry sneezed three times in my car. I know that he doesn’t take particularly good care of his health. That’s probably because he doesn’t have insurance to go to the doctor or hospital. He had a cold and although it’s better, I still have doubts that it’s all gone. Actually, I took a can of disinfectant and sprayed the car this a.m. and again after I took him home. I really don’t want to get sick for christmas

    For me, this has been the least stressful Christmas ever. Probably because we finally didn’t buy a lot of presents. Vince is the one who always thought we should get a lot for people. Also, I’m not hosting christmas so all I have to do is make the desserts (in the freezer), the pierogi (in the freezer) and the mac and cheese (I’ll do that tomorrow). All the presents are wrapped.

    Have yogurt in the IP, I’ll drain it tonight. Newcomer bowling tonight

    Vicki – have fun at the concert!

    Rebecca – poor Athena

    Sue WA – you sound like me. I DID NOT move to NC to be this cold. Actually, I’m feeling colder than normal. I do think I’m fighting off something, just not sure what it is. Feels like sinuses

    Off to bowling
