Hello everyone! I know it is six days into the New Year. Better late than never. I am finally back and ready to start posting again. At least as often as I can. It was nice to be away form my computer some and try to relax in between cleaning for Christmas and New Year. My family got together on Christmas eve. We all went out to eat and exchanged gifts and managed not to get to fussy with each other. Tom’s side of the family came to celebrate Christmas on New Year’s day. So I was doing a lot of straightening up and cleaning. It was so good to see his side of the family. It had been awhile since we had all seen each other. We got to see one of our two three year old nephews. One couldn’t make it, but we sent his gifts home with Grandma and Grandpa. And we finally got to see our newest one month old nephew. Such a cutie! Just like his brother. And they were both very good. Everyone had a wonderful time and we all ate too much. At least I did.
I have not been to my TOPS meeting for about two weeks. And I haven’t been able to get out and walk like I was. The December 22 meeting got cancelled because it was Christmas week, and December 29 was also cancelled. The weather was supposed to be very iffy and I couldn’t make it anyway. I did make it to the January 5 meeting. Surprisingly I stayed the same as I did on the last weigh in December 15. Whew! That really was a surprise. And a pleasant one.
I can really feel the difference of not walking and eating better though. I don’t feel as well and I am aching in my joints. I have been blaming the aching on the cold. 🙂 It has been cold and windy, icy and a little snow, but I have to face facts that it is not all cold. But, as our TOPS leader said; “It is a new year. And we are starting with a clean slate” Thank goodness!
And I finally got my computer working better. I had the Computer Doctor come out on January 4 to help me with windows 10. I like it much better than 8, but it just wasn’t working with anything. The doctor said that Microsoft was quite aware of the problems and came out with a massive update. He got it downloaded and installed some things like ITunes that I couldn’t get loaded. He also reloaded the things I needed, and took off the things that were on the computer that wasn’t needed anymore. So far it is running smoothly.
Goodnight all and I hope to see and hear from all of you soon. I will have to take about a week and try to catch up. Ha! I’ll need a lot of prayers for that! 😀
Stay Safe and God Bless!
