R1P3D9 – And to all a good night…

Today: 238.6 / LDW: 239.6 / Net: -1.0

Merry Christmas, everyone!
I just got home from dinner at my brother’s house (45 minute drive)… and I’m exhausted!  I’m gonna make this real quick & then toddle off to bed.
I do love when my brother does dinner, ’cause we always have something yummy that ISN’T turkey! This year, he made a lovely prime rib rack & asparagus.  I was only slightly tempted by the rolls, orange jello salad, & potatoes; but, I didn’t succumb. 🙂

I made the key lime yogurt pies, so Hubby & I had desert to eat, when everyone else was eating apple pie & triple chocolate cake. LOL

Late breakfast was a scramble with egg, onion, mushroom, cheese, & yellow peppers with coffee/cream. Dinner was a honking giant slab of prime rib & asparagus with butter. Dessert was Key Lime Yogurt Pie & coffee.

R1P3D8 – Jingle bells, batman smells…

Today: 239.6 / LDW: 239.6 / Net: 0.0

I wonder if I’m having a Fibro flare… I’m just still exhausted! And my brain hasn’t been functioning… and I hurt. Yup. Probably a flare. Joy.

We had to do some last-minute shopping today. Picked up some Visa Gift cards for the neices & nephew, and some jigsaw puzzles as the little gifty to wrap the cards with. Got a double-deck of Star Wars playing cards for my brother, along with a Yoda & Clone Warrior marshmallow pops. He’s 10 years older than me… LOL Got ‘spa’ sets for my step-mom, sister, & bro’s wife. And I got some fun “Ice Speed Chess” forms for my dad.

The “exciting” part of my day was realizing, as we were getting ready to head out to the movies, that my wallet was missing! We tore apart the car, my purse, turned out all pockets… *gnashing of teeth*  I tried calling the last store I went to… but the phones were so busy that I couldn’t get to a person in customer service. So, Hubby & I loaded back into the car and drove back to the store, just praying that I had left it at the checkout counter and not dropped it in the parking lot or something.
Prayers do get answered sometimes… The young fella who was our cashier was still on the same lane – and he remembered us, and yes – I had left my wallet sitting on the stand and he’d given it to a manager. YAY! I found a manager and they unlocked the money drawer & there it was! *sigh of incredible relief*

So, Hubby & I did make it to the movie… Albeit two and a half hours later… Saw the new Sherlock Holmes. It was a lot of fun!

We tried to go out to dinner – but after sitting at the table for fifteen minutes with no server, we got up and left. I did a parting shot at the manager (who had walked past our table twice without acknowledgement), who happened to be standing next to the hostess stand, that we were leaving without ordering because we were tired of being ignored at the table. And, when we got home, I sent an email off to the company. I am actually shocked and disappointed in what happened. I’ve NEVER had bad service there before. Slow sometimes… but never bad like this. I mean, it’s WAY more likely that the owner (like the guy who’s name is in lights on the side of the giant casino) stops by your table to chat & see how it’s going!  *sigh*  So, instead of getting yummy pan roasts, we came home and ate corned beef & cabbage. Which was still yummy… but not a pan roast.

I also made Low-Carb Key Lime Yogurt Pies (recipe below) to take to Christmas dinner with the family tomorrow. I had some left-over ground almonds, so I made some almond cocoa crack too.

Breakfast was 2 poached eggs, 2 oz beef, 2 turkey sausage links, & coffee/cream. Lunch was 3.5 oz pulled pork, green onion, & red bell peppers. Snack was beef jerky. Dinner was corned beef & cabbage. “Dessert” was licking the spoons while I was making the lime yogurt pie…
