Friday Fiddybits & 300

First of all I have my bugg on today so yay for that. I will be doing my best to track food this weekend as well. I don't have Internet at home (next month) so I won't be posting or uploading my bugg data but that is no excuse for not tracking it manually.

I peeked at the scale this morning and it is up. I did consume a fair amount of sodium (and brownies!) so I am going to attribute it to that. Hopefully I can get in some activities this weekend and have a decent weigh in next week.

Guess I will have to wait to post the pictures from last Christmas. I usually don't have trouble uploading pics or graphics but I haven't been able to do it for a few days now. Weird eh?

Got an email from Dave's sister. They listed his mothers house on Tuesday and by yesterday they already have two offers! That was quick huh? If it all goes as planned they will have to be out by January 31st or about 45 days. Dave grew up in that house and he is 58. It is just so sad to me. I am sure I will feel the same way when the time comes to sell my mom's home after she passes. It is the only home I've really known because we moved there when I was 3.

I am picking Dave up tonight and most likely will go to Target. Jo said her closest Target is an hour away! How sad is that!! There is a brand new one around the corner from where Dave is. Tomorrow is the Christmas party (Dave will not be going) and Sunday I have no concrete plans. I should go to the gym and write some Christmas cards. Maybe that will help me get in the mood for Christmas. I am a little bah humbug but trying the fake it till you make it method of attitude adjustment and it seems to be working a little...

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I will make sure to take lots of pics on Saturday at the party. Until next time...

P.S. This is my 300th post! Wowie! Who woulda thought...


  1. I'm sad to read you gained and even sadder to hear you wont be blogging for a month...

    Can imagine how sad it must be to sell the family thoughts with him..shame!!

  2. YEAH for pics and Christmas parties!

    Thank you so much for your kind comments!

  3. Katie, yes tomorrow morning at 8am we going to have a webcam chat, i will be singing and watching him opening his gift - we sent money so they could buy him a gift from us.

  4. Sodium and brownies aside (and who can resist a good brownie? :)) you are still doing amazing! I hope the party and cards get you into the Christmas spirit! Ive determined no matter my financial situation this year, Im going to enjoy it, so I have decorated every room in my house! lol
    Have a fabulous weekend!

  5. Hope you find some spirit and cheer.

    My parents moved years ago, but it will be hard losing that attachment to my home town. I think that will be the hardest part. Hope it's not something I have to deal with any time soon.

  6. I don't know what is up with blogger - I wrote a comment to you post yesterday (it was brilliant, having to do with Telex and Shop Vacs) but it's not there - boo on blogger! Hope we get to see your comparison pictures one of these days!

    Glad you strapped the bugg back on - now keep it on, missy!

    Hope you have fun at your Christmas party and your cards get magically written...I'm waiting for my annual goofy Christmas letter to be written, but it hasn't happened yes!

  7. Congrats on the 300th post :) Have fun at your party~

  8. May it be a pleasant and exciting weekend for you, Katie!

  9. Let this be your nudge... GO TO THE GYM! It sucks to go to the gym, its takes you out of your comfort zone, its painful- but its something you gotta do. I tell myself that every day. No pain no gain!

  10. Sorry to hear that you'll be gone for a month. :( I'll be looking forward to hearing all of the progress you've made a month from now!

    I LOVE Target too! have fun!

  11. Hi Katie. Sorry to hear you'll be offline for a month. We'll miss you!

    Just keep that Bugg on!

    Bearfriend xx

  12. Oh I love target. I'd hate it if I had to drive that far!

  13. 300th post! I am impressed. Enjoy the party season.


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
