And chocolates given at Christmas don’t have any calories to start with. I guess my eyes are not male like the rest of me because I can read that panel.
Happy Friday before a long weekend – if you are Canadian and actually get Family Day (Monday) off. As an added bonus this is Christmas weekend for us. Our younger daughter and my son-in-law could not make it up in December so we are celebrating Christmas this weekend.
SnowBunny12 – I think she will do some of those things but – she will return the gifts but buy even better versions, return the cards but buy even more cards she won’t send, return the outfits but buy more outfits she won’t wear, return the shoes but buy even more pairs she does not need, she won’t mention the new unmentionables she bought and the rest, you are right, she won’t do them.
Happy day after Valentine’s Day to everyone in the clan.
Lightenup I second Gretchen’s Mom in congratulating L’il. It sounds like quite an honour for her.
Well, it is “hello goodbye” for me. Off tomorrow on a make up trip to visit friends on Roatan. This is the trip my doctor cancelled on me last year. Really happy to be finally going. I hope everyone in the Clan has a fantastic week.
Encountered the extreme portion sizes issue again over the weekend. The sandwich I ordered for lunch on Saturday turned out to have enough food on the plate for lunch and Sunday morning’s breakfast. Love hotels with refrigerators in the rooms.
Had a great conference and loved the warm Toledo weather. A light jacket instead of a big parka felt good. Not so much leaving Detroit this morning though – because of the snow falling the plane had to be de-iced before taking off. It took longer to get through the di-icing area than it took to fly from Detroit to Toronto. Ah well, got home safe and sound by supper tonight.
QuietStorm – Sorry I missed your birthday but please accept my ‘Happy Birthday’ now.
And she is going to do this every day? Her bank account will lose more than she will.
Have a great weekend everyone. I’m off to the fine city of Toledo for a weekend conference. Looking forward to much warmer weather there – well that and ‘networking’ (never did like that term applied to humans) with friends.
It is strange really – especially in the United States. You go to a high-end restaurant with high prices and you get a small portion on a large plate. Perfectly sized portion really because you may even have room for dessert. Yet go to a reasonably priced restaurant and you get a huge portion on a large plate. Sometimes even after splitting a meal with my wife we still do not have room for dessert.
Hope everyone in the Clan is having a great day. Finally got more snow here last night and today. Glad my wonderful neighbour wants me to use his tractor to clear both our driveways when he is away. Way too much to shovel by hand.
Samhuff and SunFlowerGirl100 Make that three Lois Bujold fans here today.
I, too, have some of those baby boomer cells deteriorating.
I agree – way to personal. But then I don’t respond well to the implied threats about what will be noticed.
Glad Lil is feeling better Lightenup. We are experiencing a lot more school closures here too. We only have a couple of inches of snow but if there is even a threat of ice the buses won’t run and since the majority of students are bused they close the schools. Of course the teachers have to be there for the few students who will show up anyway – usually families that cannot arrange for someone to be home with the little ones.
Confess all failures!! That would take me hours.
Lightenup Sorry to hear about Lil. I am sure everyone else in the Clan will join me in wishing her a quick recovery.
