Didn’t weigh myself today… I figured it would just be depressing, and if I wait a few days, and then I break even, it’ll be better. If that’s what happens! *wink*

Yesterday I did better than Thanksgivings past; but still not great.

Had lunch with all the fixins at Grandma’s – turkey, potatoes, carrots, Brussels sprouts, stuffing, green bean casserole… but I abstained from the roll (fat lot of good that probably did me). I also had 1 light beer. I then went to Grandma # 2 for DINNER, where I had more turkey, potatoes, and dressing; along with a piece of chocolate pie. Planned on going home.. but then the brother in law called. All the cousins were going to a movie at 9:00 pm. That meant probably we’d be out around 11:00. Not fun when I had to get up at 5:00, but I figured it’d be alright.

The movie was 3 hours. And seriously, there were 4 endings. Complete plot resolution, then a whole new storyline would start. Do NOT go see Australia. I thought I’d be great; I was wrong.

When we got out, at midnight, everyone said they were going to IHOP. Husband looked at me with puppy dog eyes. Brother-in-law and sister-in-law to be did the same. I caved, and we went. Husband and I shared a breakfast sandwich (egg, ham, cheese) and some onion rings. I had half of everything.

I got home and in bed at 3:00am, decided to go into work an hour late, and got up at 6:00am. Yeah, like 3 hours is REALLY a lot better than 2. So I got here, pumped 3 cups of coffee, a WW English muffin, and yogurt into me. Now I’m STARVING!!!

Today will be long; but I’m looking forward to a FANTASTIC nap. My sister has talked us into going to a bar with her tonight, since all of my cousins are in town. So I’ll be up late yet again, probably being a designated driver, because I’m the only one that can imagine having a good time at the bar without drinking. Imagine that…

My gosh, Amy, I know that you are younger than me, but don't do that to yourself too often--go without sleep, I mean! It reminds me of my nursing school days, and it made me feel sick to be that sleep deprived. (come to think of it, even when I was in nursing school I was older than you!)

Thanks for the review of Australia, I was really looking forward to it, but when I saw it was 3 hours long, my sister and I decided on another movie--Four Christmases. Just okay--more disfunctional family gatherings...

Movie popcorn and m&m's---one of my all time favorites, and one of the reasons I don't go to the movies much anymore. I got a kids deal today. Just enough to safisfy me.

Glad I'm home, and good to hear from you!
