Is tired

One very good side effect of being sick over the holidays: I actually LOST WEIGHT over Thanksgiving. I am *this close* to officially having lost 100 pounds. I doubt I'll be able to keep it up as both my appetite and my tastebuds have returned and the house is full of nommy holiday items, but if I can at least maintain things until January, maybe I can get those last few pounds gone at long last.

I saw another raven today.

I spent some money today. I bought what I thought were sweater dresses (at Last Chance, so I didn't try them on), but they appear to just be tunic-length sweaters. Pretty, though, so I'm not unhappy with them, they just will need leggings to wear (or pants). I did not finish the laundry. I got some of the Christmas decorations up. My cat is certain I'm starving him to death. I finished my writer's critiques.

Trader Joe's is NOT carrying the sublime chocolate-covered graham crackers this year. *sob*

Finished reading American on Purpose. I now understand (at least a little) why Craig has such a grudge against cats...

I'm actually hoping there will continue to be overtime this week; it makes me tired but the extra money comes in very handy this time of year.

There is a BLIZZARD warning for north and central Arizona tonight. I'm somewhat skeptical of the promised rain in the Valley, though, since they always say that and I haven't seen rain in months. Of course, I did wash the car windows today, and there are clothes out on the line still (it takes longer to dry when it's this cold), so maybe it will rain.

I am happy that my two favorite shows this last season not only weren't canceled, they aren't even on the bubble. That never happens to me! Of course, they are finished for the winter season, and Flashforward won't be back until March, but at least it will be back, and I won't wonder forever what happens (like in The Nine).

Everyone's getting/giving snowflake cookies and I don't know where to get them...

Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today!

Blizzards? WTF?

Tell me about it! This is for the Rim country (high mountains), and the plateau; it does certainly get cold and snowy up there, but I can never remember hearing about a blizzard here before!

I found 'em! (And thanks for mine! Yum!)

It's taken eight years and a lot of hard work, but I did it!

We've both been sick, too, and hadn't gotten any decorating done. So since I was feeling less awful today, and had to be down in the basement for laundry, I got some stuff out.

The Christmas Ferris wheel is in the living room. Michael even pretended not to be totally horrified when I turned it on. I spent the rest of the evening assembling the wreathes. The house is a mess, but we have a plan for the decorating, and there are now a lights in one of the windows and one lighted snowman people can see as they drive by, so I feel less like a Scrooge.

I thought I saw chocolate covered graham crackers when I was at Trader Joe's Thursday night... maybe it was something else.

It's a rotten time of year to be sick! Hope you guys are feeling better (I was thinking about you when I was looking at the brightly colored musical ornaments this year...)

I wonder if they have 'em up there. I've been to both our local ones and asked, and both places said they didn't have 'em this year (although I'm apparently not the only one who's asked for them, so hopefully next year!).

At first, I read that there was a buzzard warning, which seems only slightly less likely than a blizzard warning. It has been chilly, though.

Congrats on the weight loss and envy for seeing the raven.

Well, there MIGHT be buzzards up on the Rim... *grin*

One of them was pretty close to your area, since it was next to the Paradise Valley Trader Joe's (Shea & Tatum).
