Hopefully some new friends.What goals do you have for next year? Anything fun & exciting? I have a few new planners & memory boards/goal boards. I'm hoping that they help me to focus.

Fibro update

I haven't been feeling great lately. The past few weeks my stomach has been bothering me. I finally went to the doctor today & she did a few tests. No results yet. I'm thinking that it's a bacterial infection. I've had them before & I think it is associated with chronic fatigue, which I have. I hate to feel crappy this time of year, so much to do. My neck has also been killing me, kind of like a kink. It's hurts to turn my head to the right. I've been putting Salonpas patches on it & using heat & ibuprofin. It's finally feeling like Winter & I think that is why my aches & pains are worse. I haven't posted a fibro update lately, so I thought it was time. This is a pic from today. I look so tired, but that's my normal puffy eyes.

Cats & Cookies on a Snow Stormy Day.

We had a snow storm today. We got about 5 inches of snow. Tara's friend slept over last night & stayed until 2:30pm. They went out sledding today. We didn't go anywhere today. I was in my pjs for half of the day. You know 1 of those chill type days. I wrote out some more Christmas cards. I think I'm about done. I have around 5 cards left. We'll go out & buy some new boxes of cards after X-mas & get them marked down. Since we were stuck in the house today we need to go out X-mas shopping tomorrow. Heading to 5 Below.
Notice Kizmet with her Patriots cat nip toy.

We made gluten free chocolate chip cookies, but added some m&m's to some of them & T added some little sprinkle balls to some of them. Not bad. My 1st time trying these 1s.

Missing Summer

It's finally gotten really cold here the past week. It's suppose to be down to 1 degree fahrenheit tonight overnight. It's going to be mighty cold at the bus stop tomorrow morning. I'm thinking they might delay the start of school until 10:00. That's what they usually do. T has her Christmas party tomorrow afternoon in school.

Nail Files. Week # 283

This is a new polish that I got last week. It has argan oil in it. It's Sally Hansen Color Therapy~Ja-Cozy. I like the color a lot, but it has a weird skunky smell to it.

Snow is Coming

I'm not a fan of cold, snow or Winter. We're suppose to get some snow overnight, so I'm thinking there's going to be no school tomorrow & I'm not leaving the house. It's going to be cold this week. I think I'm going to go food shopping & that's about it.

National Believe Day with Macy's & Make a Wish

 This Friday, Dec. 9 marks National Believe Day when Make-A-Wish New Hampshire and Macy’s come together to grant special wishes to kids locally and nationwide with life-threatening medical conditions. On this day, Macy’s will make a special, double donation of $2 for every letter to Santa dropped off at their stores’ big red mailboxes across New Hampshire National Believe Day.

 Since early November, Macy’s has invited customers of all ages to drop their letters to Santa at their local Macy’s store or send online via Believe. Macy’s will donate $1, up to $1 million, to Make-A-Wish for every letter collected through Dec. 24. For National Believe Day on Dec. 9, Macy’s will offer a double donation, providing an additional $1 per letter to Make-A-Wish, up to an extra $1 million, above the existing $1 million campaign goal. In addition, Macy’s and Make-A-Wish will celebrate Wishes Across America by granting wishes in Macy’s stores across the country, bringing together wish kids and their families, Macy’s employees and local communities.

 The Believe campaign was inspired by the true story of 8-year-old Virginia, who wrote a letter to the New York Sun newspaper in 1897 asking about the existence of Santa. The classic response, “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus …,” penned by Francis P. Church, became the most reprinted editorial in any English-language newspaper. The season also marks a major milestone, as Macy’s will celebrate $100 million in total giving to Make-A-Wish since 2003, with nearly $13 million donated through the Believe campaign. Celebrate with “Yes, Virginia” This Friday, Dec. 9, the “Yes, Virginia” animated special will air online at You Tube-Macy's. The award-winning, half-hour holiday program features a star-studded cast including Neil Patrick Harris, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Alfred Molina and Beatrice Miller in the title role. The cast also includes former wish child Taylor Hay, who had her wish granted when her voice was captured for one of the film’s characters.
I hope you can make it to Macy's tomorrow, when they will be doubling the donation or at least by December 24th. I personally love letter writing & I think it's fun & important to get kids writing letters & to believe.

My Christmas Wish List

Too Faced-Peanut Butter palette. I'm trying to decide which eye palette I want to get. I think I'll probably get Peanut butter. But I also want the Peach palette that I missed getting & it's coming out again on Dec. 14th.

This is the Peach palette. I love browns, golds, coppers & purples. I have green eyes, so all those colors look great with my eyes.

Tartlette-In Bloom palette.

Gelly roll Stardust gel pens.

Yoga pants from Old Navy.

Starbucks mug. Out of stock online though.

That's about it. I got some $ from my parents for Christmas, so I'll go pick out some things with the $.
