Hi Warriors!

I have a brand new grandson! Both mom and baby are doing great. He's a little early, but healthy. Weight is 6 lbs 13 ozs.

I had the other two kids all night and all today, and also Thursday evening. My son took the kids to see their brother. I didn't go because I'm still sick ☹️ But I will have many more chances to cuddle and kiss him when I'm better.

I am back home for the night and need to rest. I will have the kids again tomorrow.

Happy Day, Warriors!

Take some time today to just chil-lax to take care of YOU b/c you're WORTH IT!

Stay WARRIOR Strong!

Onward and DOWNWARD, WARRIORS! We've GOT THIS! Woot! Woot!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Got most of my w/e "to-do" list completed yesterday, will finish up with the rest today.

I was thinking about what I am going to eat for my Christmas dinner this year. Usually it's turkey with a lovely leafy green salad.

But I was underwhelmed by the turkey I had for Thanksgiving. I didn't find it as tasty as I usually do.

Probably due to the fact that food, any food, isn't that important to me any more. It's really just nourishment for my body. Imma not saying I'm bored with the food I eat or that it's not tasty; it's just food.

I really can't complain b/c that means temptations are NOT on my radar at all. It really is a nice place to be "eating-wise"! KWIM?

But back to my Christmas dinner, Imma thinking I'll get me some "peel n' eat" shrimp and make a homemade garlic mayo to dip 'em in and of course, a leafy green salad!

Topic Change: Finished another Baby Sweater yesterday:

"Aran" & "Buff Fleck" stripes Baby Sweater

Started another one that I am doing in rainbow colored stripes with the "Aran" yarn as the main color. It's a lot of fun to come up with all these different variations of baby sweaters. Imma not bored doing 'em yet!

I don't really spend much time on the internet except for in "here", checking my work and personal email and my banking accounts.

So it's not the end of the world for me... but it's very ANNOYING when I wanna go online and it ain't happening! I know you KNOW what I mean!

Imma very lucky, its a rare thing for my ISP to be down!

off to mom's today
hit grocery store for all her fixings for making a lasagna. She is in the mood to make one and I told her to go for it.
Then home to do mostly nothing, little this and that. Most holiday stuff is done so I am safe on that part.
Sounds like an easy day for sure. How sweet that you're goin' grocery shopping for your mom's lasagna ingredients. You're a good DD! Imma sure she appreciates you a lot!

Oh yeah, "Batteries NOT included"! Nice that you've taken care of that b/c there's nothing worse than having a present that needs batteries and there aren't any around...

Sounds like you're fini with all your holiday shopping etc...

Woot! Woot! Woot! HUGE CONGRATS on grand #5!!

So many happy and wonder-filled times ahead for all of youÖcongratulations!

Too bad he couldn't wait a few more hours to be born b/c he would have shared his b'day with my youngest DD who is 33 today!

Edited to add: Hmmmmm, I just saw that you updated/edited your last post at 2:15am...so was the new lil' one born yesterday (16 Dec) or today???

CONGRATS, CONGRATS, CONGRATS DE!!!!!
So happy momma and baby are doing fine!!

What is his name? I bet they will have a merry christmas with a new little one around!! Cool!! Happy for you guys!!



Bernie, you had me laughing on batteries, I also bought a monster pack of double As to kiddo from Santa under the tree. Seem to go thru those like lightening around here HA HA


JO, nice sweater. You are just a machine on the afghans and sweaters!

Love your shrimp and dip for dinner menu! I am a shrimp fan and I find seafood a wonderful change from the meats. I know you will be enjoying that meal! Same on turkey for me, turkey just doesn't hold the taste for me anymore. Will still eat it if I get it offered to me, but I won't be cooking one here ever again probably, since kiddo doesn't like it either. But the price ya know, SO cheap at the holiday time but price doesn't draw enough for me to eat it when I don't want it LOL


Hey all
nothing much today
this and that....they wanted hubby to overtime today, it would be day 6 of 12 hr shifts and I told him NO. He was gonna go to work but I said nope, nada, you are dragging now so forget it. I tell ya your health is not worth a job that kills ya so heck no on another day of that! So he will mostly sleep this day away on the couch with tv which is fine, kiddo stayed up to like 3am on her Xbox and all and she won't function today either....so we will cruise thru this day quiet, easy, doing mostly nothing LOL
eh, its cool.

I might go into the soap room I have to dismantle and do some throwaway work in there. take stuff to the dump tomorrow. I need to get a little something done since I am not the tired one in the house right now HA

have tuna and pork chops for eating today.

great day all

Hello dear warriors,

How is everyone doing today?

De.... Huge congrats 🎈 on you new grandson! Another bundle of joy to luv and cherish! I know you are tired taking care of the grands and trying to get better! So exciting it will be a great Xmas!

Jo.... I have to agree just didnít think the turkey this year was all that! I probably will get just turkey breast on a go forward! Menu for Xmas sounds delish! Allergic to shell 🐚 fish but it always looks so good. I was thinking maybe cod or salmon for my Xmas day dinner! Like I told Karen the 23rd appetizers, 24th roast! 25 I on my own yeah me!

Karen.... I Luv those chillin days when I can do what I want and then just relax and catch up on my tv recordings! I agree life is to short to burn out at work! My dad always said you canít kill your self working and then be sick or have major health problems when you retire! Tuna sounds good may have that tomorrow! I been wanting tuna !

Have a spectacular Sunday warriors and take care of yourself!

I knew you'd my shrimp idea for Christmas dinner!

I mentioned my Christmas dinner idea in my journal yesterday and Glenda (bluesinger) said something that I hadn't thought about. She said that BIG Farmers are breeding the flavor out of our protein.

Could be a combination of breeding out the flavor and being 100% OP all these years I've changed my palate. KWIM??

WOW, they are working your DH hard! Retirement must be looking better and better for him. So is he still going to retire this coming year???

Your kiddo sounds like my students. They play their video games til the wee hours of the am on the weekends and walk in like zombies Monday mornings...

Must be bittersweet to have to dismantle your soap-making room. The end of an era...

Awwwwwwww so sorry to hear that you're allergic to shellfish... you poor poor dear!

About the turkey, see what I said to Karen. Also, I didn't buy some generic brand it was a Butterball!

Sounds like you've got the days leading to Christmas and Christmas dinner all set! the cod or salmon idea! Yummers for sure!

Bernie, I didn't know you were allergic to shellfish...what a bummer. It is such a great option to jump on when wanted, but of course you got nice fish to eat so you have some protein variety so that is good!

Your Dad had extreme sound advice! That is what is happening to hubby. No time to take care of himself, no time to truly rest and all and we will change all that sooner than later

JO, I think our tastes do change a bit. I know I get on kicks...like a rib kick for a while then I have to change off them to chicken or seafood. But at least they still are a draw for me, that old darn turkey just ain't a draw, I would rather have a big old roaster chicken

yea, shooting for him to quit work in June....then he has 6 months off to rest and all....then come Jan. he is going to get a 'small easy job somewhere' and work til June again then quit. Kinda like work winter somewhere, then take the last 6 months of the year off...sounds like a plan LOL I can have him around all the time in summer months cause I get out and about and am super active, but winter, oh heck no, in winter I am more inside and he has to be gone for a bit of that or I think I might go bonkers HAHA

Ahhh, your kids at school also crazy about the darn games! Yea kiddo is doing just that. I told her if she does this then she has to function thru it. But she will be in bed early tonight for sure, but this week is short, she goes M-T and off friday for holiday.

Dismantling the soap room is great actually LOL No bittersweet, I was in a weird place stopping the biz for a bit, but now it is like heck yea I am done forever doing this same darn thing I was doing for 15 years I am happy with my decision finally and just starting to throw it all out, feels good kinda


DE, hope the grandbaby is doing well and everyone is in fine spirits!!


Hey all
hubby and I (wish me luck on this one lol) are hitting the stores for a few things and done with the holiday 100%. Faster shop and told him I want breakfast out and no lunch out. Bacon/cheese omelet for me. An omelet is so easy of an option and safer than trying to navigate the stupid lunch places he always wants to go.

nothing much more. day should be easy!

great day to everyone!!
