I'd like to chew the fat...

Well, I would like to chew anything, actually. Still can't. Those that know tell me it shouldn't be long, but the waiting is adding pounds where I don't need them. I seem to be eating something constantly, pudding, ice cream, yogurt - and most of it has chocolate sauce on it. I think my brain thinks I am not eating because I am not chewing and I'm always hungry. I have already gained 5 pounds, some could be water weight, because all of that stuff has salt. I can hope so anyway. A lovely steak and a salad would be so good about now... I can't even eat cookies. Will be going to see the dentist again on Friday for another "adjustment".

So! I imagine you are all busy prepping for your festivities. We went shopping today, the husband wants to cook some soup for tomorrow.  The big dinner Wednesday will was supposed to be... wine soaked baked ham, sweet potato casserole, twice baked potatoes w/cheese, green bean casserole and I will be having beer/cheese soup. Naturally I will TRY to eat the other stuff, haha. It has trailed through my mind about baking some homemade dinner rolls, drizzled with butter and Parmesan cheese. He bought a red velvet cake and a Dutch apple pie for dessert. We will eat leftovers for the duration, as it will just be the two of us.

Jack and Jill scored new beds for Christmas. Jill's new bed is about half the size of a twin mattress and about six inches thick. It really doesn't fit in her 'room' (the closet floor) and she is kind of put out about it, but this one will be so much better for her long legs. Jack's bed is perfect for him to curl up in and so much thicker - he sleeps in the bathroom and that tile floor is so cold. I think this one will be better for him as well. They rated doggy cookies too.

I got a brand new mifi, but it works no better than the old one before it died. Also a mouse scanner that I haven't tried to figure out yet. Our old scanner doesn't scan anymore, I thought I would give this one a try. (As soon as I can wade through the instructions) I have boxes of old photos that I would like to go through.

The boss is on vacation until the sixth of January, it's too bad that it is so cold right now. Sigh...

Well, Y'all have a Merry, Merry and a Happy, Happy! Stay warm or cool (whatever the case may be).
