I did B&BW Saturday for the candles too. I checked the night before to see what time they opened, hoping to beat the worst of the crowd.  Well, it turns out, they had opened way earlier than normal. It was already shoulder to shoulder. Worth it though. I won't pay $25 for a candle, but if I can get them for $7 (20% off coupon) I'll stock up for the whole year!  I bought 20.

 

Got ready to bake a batch of cookies yesterday, and discovered the bottom element in my oven isn't working.  Since I had to get the cookies done, I ran to Walmart and bought a counter top oven that I didn't want and don't have room for. Then I burned a couple batches while learning the new oven. What my oven took 8.5 minutes to do, this thing does in 6. Maybe my element has been bad for a very long time :).

 

Oh, and "Happy December"!

My dog (who is essentially my kid as I can’t have kids) is having surgery today to remove a broken tooth. If everyone could send good thoughts, karma or prayers to whatever power you believe in that would be awesome. He means the world to me and all I want for Christmas is for him to be ok. Thanks.

UPDATE: It’s been a long trying day and despite some complications everything turned out well with the oral surgery and my dog is back at home. He’s still a little loopy from the anesthesia but he had an appetite which I will take as a good sign (he’s a lab and food is his entire world). Thanks for all the good vibes, I really appreciate it. You guys are the best.

I got a few things made over the weekend, getting ready for Christmas. The tree is up and decorated (courtesy of the 7 year old DS, so placement isn't great).  Aside from a few little things, we're READY!

I was driving home from work Saturday evening and one of those darn red light traffic cameras flashed me on a green light! Everyone says not to worry but anxiety is my middle name so I’m super worried I’m going to get a ticket anyways. I might have been going a little fast but I couldn’t check the speedometer right away due to the blindness caused by those dumb flashes lol. Am I freaking out for no reason??

Happy December, all! Had the company Christmas party Saturday night, so got all dressed up & had a great time. 55bdb52f8ff27fb50d8594c181abccaf.jpg

Proud to say I am SEVEN dress sizes down from where I was last year. Still have a ways to go, but making good progress.

For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"

 

NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol :cool:

You didn't move far enough south. lol (I drove from MI to Charlotte, NC on Christmas Day in 2010 in a snowstorm that began in WV and got worse the farther south I went!)

It was in the 40s this morning as I drove into the office in FL. Not much warmer than it was in MI last weekend while I was there. As a matter of fact it was in the 60s there Saturday.

Lol. I'm usually still getting SOMETHING the week of Christmas so I'm excited to be almost done. Then I can finish wrapping Christmas and get started on the birthday presents so my toddler will quit playing with stuff when he finds it. I'm out of hiding places!

So...My DW decided AFTER Black Friday that she wanted an outdoor patio heater ($99 on BF), a Ring Video Doorbell ($139+free item on BF), and a Roku device (out of the blue.  I wasn't looking for that).  Luckily, I found a similar patio heater for $100 off Amazon still.  No luck on the Ring (back to $199 everywhere) and I can't really find anything on the Roku.  I guess the current stick + would work as I saw Fry's Electronics has it for $45 today (everywhere else $49 normal price $60).  The Roku isn't important as we don't really need it until February. 

 

Any thoughts on if I will score a better deal on the bottom end Roku device later?

So, I'll post updates regarding my cancer recovery journey here, rather than in the off-topic forum, unless I'm told otherwise.

Yesterday was my follow up presurgical consultation with my reconstructive surgeon. She wouldn't put me on the operating table unless I weighed less than 200 lbs. I decided to go for 190 before going back, so I would be certain to be somewhere in the 190s when I went clothed in to her office. I'm glad I did, as my appointment wasn't until 4:00, and I wasn't going to fast until that late in the day.

On the scale at UW reconstructive surgery, I weighed 192. When my doctor walked in, she looked at me with a big grin, and the first thing she said to me was, "Give the girl a goal, and have her blow it out of the water!"

She was of the mindset that I lost 40 lbs since she saw me in June, and I didn't remind her that 11 of those pounds were dropped overnight after the bilateral masectomy (bye-bye boobies). I felt just fine basking in her effusive praise. But, I'm still going to keto on. I have a lot of weight yet to lose.

For now, it looks like surgery will be scheduled for March. But, there is a chance another patient may cancel next month around my birthday. Not the happiest of birthdays with the plan of spending four days in ICU. But, if it is offered, I'll jump at the chance anyway.
