Bah Humbug

Where is my Christmas spirit? I seem to have lost it this year and no matter how much Christmas music I subject myself to, it's not coming back. I'm not one of those people who love picking out gifts for family and friends. Most people I know already have everything they want so this time of year ends up being a major stressfest of trying to find gifts. The real joy I find in the season is buying gifts for needy children or nursing home residents. Now those people need things! Jason and I picked 2 kids off the tree at the mall today so that will be fun to do this weekend. (If anyone has a clue what 14 year olds like, please let me know!)

We also managed to get the Christmas lights on the house. We really need more outside decorations, but I'm just not that into those giant blow-up things that everyone has these days. I'd love to have a nice nativity scene to put in the yard, so I guess I'll just have to keep my eyes open for one.

My weigh in is tomorrow morning so we'll see how it goes. I think I had way too much sodium today, so I'm not expecting to finally get to "overweight" status tomorrow.

Here's a peek at my dinner tonight. I had chicken, steamed broccoli, brown rice, and mushrooms. YUM!

That is gross. Don't eat that when you are pregnant or the baby will vomit all inside you. Love Brandi
