Yes--there are many wonders to behold

Yesterday while at work at the jewelry store the most wonderful thing happened. A young man in his late 20's was in shopping for a engagement ring. His finances were an issue and as he narrowed his choices down to 3 rings he kept relaying stories of his love for his girlfriend and her likes and dislikes. Another one of our very good customers who was near by shopping overheard some of his conversations and was overcome with joy and love for this young man. Come to find out he had stirred memories of her grandson, who had died in a car accident, 10 years earlier and would've been around the same age. She wrote a check for $1000 dollars, to us ,to be given to him anonymously. I wish you all could have been there when we showed him the check and told him the story. He teared up, as we all did and asked if he could thank her. She was gone...

Tis the season!

Lost in La La Land!

I've been following everyones posts but have been too busy to compose my own--or too lazy---writing is not my forte.

Work at the jewelry store has been very busy--even though I only work 2 days a week--it is 11 hours straight on your feet and a lot of very needy people to serve. Most of the time I enjoy it!

There have been a lot of parties and dinners and many more to come. My restriction has unfortunately been waning and I find myself able to eat just about anything--even steak the other night at a party with no problems. I have been up 1.5 pounds for a week and then this morning another 1.5--for a total of 3 from my lowest-DANG!! Should I go in for a small fill? There are still so many parties coming up. My husband would like me to wait until after the holidays because he enjoys me being able to drink and eat more. I'm uncomfortable with myself ---and keeping a close eye on the scale!

I love that I look better in some of my clothes at the parties--and have noticed more men looking and more women scorning!! Funny how that works!!

My 1 year of free fills--part of my cash package deal with the WLC is almost up soon 3/15/11. They charge $290 cash for a fill, sooo- I started looking around thanks to all of you and found a Fill center USA, very close. They charge $349 for their initial visit unless they are having a special $299 deal and $165 for later fills. How does that sound to all of you out there? (They do not use a floroscope (sp?) but either does my place)

I love all the lights, smells, music and I could keep going on--of Christmas!!!! I wish I knew how to post pictures ;-)

2 blocks from my house there is a YMCA, with an outdoor 25 meter lap pool, kept around 80 degrees---NICE! Going swimming now!!
