Well I am back.. took me a bit to find the computer.. been a crazy Thanksgiving Holiday week. With the kids and the husband home, I never can even get within 2 feet from the computer.
I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. I myself think I cooked too much. Since I have been losing weight, I didn't seem to have the appetite for the casseroles. I think Christmas I will just do the basic, peas, m/potatoes, gravy, stuffing, turkey and a small ham. Too much, is too much.
I am becoming more of a grazer. A few simple appetizers and my new fav.... Sonics diet limeade...

It seems like life, or my life in general is taking a new path. Gosh, you think you have done it all and God shows you a whole nother way.

We still have the baby and are in the process of talking them into letting him be adopted by us. I will pursue that in February. We have had him for over 2 months solid and the first 2 months of his life, off and on a few weeks. I see this as a win, win situation. He is beautiful and growing fast and alert. He is thriving in this house. I want him to always be and feel safe. So please keep us in your prayers.

Me, well I hit the old orthopedic doctor, Yea! no, I have no cartlidge in either hip, He says it has been years of wear and tear. So the plan is double hip joint replacements.. Fun...You think! He offered me no medicine or anything. Just sent me on my way, saying as long as I can stand the pain....and see me in 6 months.. wow!
Any who, I think when I see him in May I will see if we can start the procedures, Maybe one in the first of June and the other during Thanksgiving next year. We will see. Like my sister said, " Go at it like an athlete" She is right. I have to lose the additional 40 lbs and keep up the exercising. I will be the best patient and get right up on my feet. I know this is a big thing.. but in God all things are possible.

I just wanted to keep everyone up to date..
Gotta run, they are putting up Christmas lights on the house.. May not be able to help much, but I can still run my mouth.. "There aren't joint replacements for my jaws are there?"

Take care and keep in touch.....
