Phew, so I survived another Christmas/Birthday :P My daughter just turned 16 on the 24th so this time of year is always very, very busy & filled with some stress...lol. We had our usual party (family only) on Christmas Eve, lobster chowder until we all had to unbuckle our pants and of course the Dairy Queen Cake...YUM! Everyone always asks her if she hates having her birthday on X'mas Eve and her reply is always the same..."Nah, I'm an only child so I pretty much get everything I want, when I want it, so on my birthday & Christmas I just get ALOT of stuff all at once." Tehehe~ How true this is...although I must say that she has always been the type to be sooo appreciative, and she's never been one to say "Oh, I want this!" or "Oh, I need that!". She's an old soul, was straight from birth! For her 16th she got a set of pink purls with ruby insets in the clasp..>TO DIE FOR! They are soooo her...we all cried :S
I've been trying to watch what I eat since I've given up smoking to avoid any serious weight gain...I think I might have gained a few pounds from the holidays, but I'll probably shed it soon...lol. As a reward for my good choices I'm getting myself a membership to our local Aquatic Centre...WOHOO! I think I'll go & see if anyone is around today & get it started, my daughter will appreciate this as well, she loves to be active too~
TODAY IS "LUCKY" 13, nothing unlucky about this number as it's been 13days since I've quit the habit. I can honestly say that I've not really craved, however, I've been tempted to take a puff or two, and the addiction is always telling you "why are you doing this, look at that guy over there enjoying HIS cig, what's the point?" This is when in a feverish voice my conscience pipes in and says "NO...YOU DON'T SMOKE, YOU'RE A NON-SMOKER, WHY WOULD YOU WANT A CIG?"...Lol. It's worked for meeeeeeeeeeeee~
KNITTING...>I cast on the Campfire Socks before X'mas for a gift for my neighbour & got 1 and 3/4 done & realized I was going to run out of yarn>>GRRRR~ I NEVER DO THIS. I frogged & cast on the Wicker Cafe Cowl for now, she'll get this as well as a pair of socks & I had to apologize for the hold up on the gift :S
Next year when I think about Christmas knitting...>SOMEBODY STOP ME! K...Off to do some serious Boxing Day Shopping :) CHEERS & HOPE YOU HAD A GREAT HOLIDAY!
