Christmas plans are starting to come together -

Christmas eve, my mother and I are going out to dinner at a local restaurant. Then my mom wants to come back to my place to open "a few" gifts. She also plans on having a full gift exchange on Christmas morning. This means that I need to have enough presents for my mom so that she has gifts to open both days. So, this weekend I'll have to pick up a few odds and ends for gifts.

I've decided on the following for Christmas day food - Overnight Caramel French Toast and bacon for breakfast, and slow cooker Irish Stew for later in the day. This way, I can do most of my grocery shopping this weekend.

Work has been horribly busy and stressful, and I'm hoping to have a long weekend, by taking off the 24, 25 and 26.

The good news is that I've been too busy to eat much - dinner this week has been good cheese, bread and a glass of wine - not exactly Jenny Craig cuisine, but it has paid off, and my total weight loss is now . . . 12.4 lbs!
Alright, off to get my car smog checked. Hope you all have good things planned for today,
