        • I am up and trying to shake off the last of the cold I’ve had. Unfortunately it has me moving slow!  However I am ready to return to normal everyday life. My decorations have been put away, the house cleaned  up and all the holiday food is gone.

          Whew!!!!!!!!

        • I also start my new 21 day challenge today. Moving 30 minutes and eating 1 meatless meal per day seems easy enough to kick things off.

          There was crazy talk about giving up bread and pop. I will eventually do those too just not today estatic

        • I need to put away the Christmas decorations today. I’m glad it’s “back to normal” Monday and I did some errands in town yesterday to not have them to do today. ;oD

        • Good morning Vikki, Kmarie, Cathie!

          I got my Christmas decorations put away yesterday, need to do a little more cleanup today.

          Wishing I had to work today, I’ve had just too many days off in a row, but it’ll be back to work tomorrow.

          I’m going to take Vikki’s challenge and start moving 30 min a day.  Going to start doing some physical therapy stuff for my back too.

        • Good morning, Tulip!  

          I looked at my decorations yesterday and decided .... but they look so pretty! LOL  This year I didn’t go hog wild decorating so it won’t take forever to pack them back up.  

          And Thanks, Vikki! I’m intending for it to be a great day. ;oD  Yesterday was all quiet in town and I’m glad I went yesterday.

        • we are still on holiday here and can I say I’m so over this Christmas and New Year - we started our particular holiday on the 21st so it’s now two weeks and mainly spent inside due to the bad weather , transport strikes and just sheer apathy at leaving the house ..............ohhhh

        • Good Morning All!  Had a wonderful 4 day vacation at our friends in Hill Country.   The weather was incredible!!  Blue skies and temps. averageing abround 54-69.  Perfect!  With the exception of getting home a day early and finding the kicken in a wreck cuz hubby’s daughter had a little New Years Party and didn’t even bother to clean up!  Grrrrr,,,,,

        • Vikki what made it worse was hubby dropped me off and she was home.  I lug my bags upstairs and the doors locked, ok, so I ring the bell 4 times and she never came and opened the door.  I have a hidden key downstairs, so I get in and there is a candle lit.  And why???  She was in her room, never came out.  I was livid.  I got in my car & called hubby to tell him he better have her got off her lazy a** and have that kitchen cleaned BEFORE I get home from Target.  Girl I could go on an on about this.  I probably should leave it at this.  LOL  I’m still angry at her!tongue out

        • Angel, I always love hearing about your trips to Hill Country, they sound so Good for the soul. ;oD  Return home... not so much, I would’ve been pissed too. Our home is suppose to welcome us back, it’s suppose to make us feel Good after feeling a little sad we have to leave our friends until the next time. I hope your kitchen was cleaned up.

        • Angel, been there done that....My ex had 4 kids and thought that I was the maid they never clean anything even after I repeatedly told them that if they wanted a maid they better hire one because I’m not it.
          I feel for you, your husband has to get out the stick and straight things out because they are his kids and when they get to that age there not going to listen to you.
          You and your husband have to take them off that perch they put themselves on.

          Stay strong!!!!!

        • Hi Ladies, Vikki I am so glad to see the holidays are passed us I am so ahead of myself looking for Spring to be right around a corner lol. I hate our Michigan winters with a passion and from all the falling I’ve been doing with it for the past two winters it doesn’t like me either lol, however I welcome February because that is one of the lover’s holiday months and I love it when we here on Fab exchange Valentine’s Day cards and I’m looking forward ot us all doing it again this year.

          It’s back to reality week.  

          Vikki, I’m joining you on the 21 day challenge, and hope that I can stay on track with all that I’ve got to do that hasn’t been done since the beginning of the holiday season.

          Happy New Year Everyone!
