    af day Wed 26 Dec

    Happy Boxing Day and I do hope you guys had a fun or just OK Christmas day. I know it was not easy for all - and of course as I write this - the day is not over for the North American abbers.

    TDN - your horror stories about the US legal system and the different states system and your DUI - is an eye opener to me. It sounds so complicated.

    Mick - how's the tummy with all that festive grub?

    Kuya and Blondie - survived the heat wave? Not great weather for being around hot food - or doing much.

    CanToo - how's the cold?

    And to everyone else - how did the day go?

    So my first AF Christmas day in 15 years. I deliberately minimised the stress for me and we had a lovely day. I was still very tired from my travelling and I have a horrible cough (just had a wee coughing fit). Two cups of tea already but will switch to the coffee. Family still asleep - nice quiet time - apart from the birds and the fridge doing its fridge thing!

    Take care you all!!!

    Howdy Tree. It's so cold... "how cold is it?". It's so cold that the boxing day snowshoe was cancelled too. BUT it will be 20C warmer by the weekend... Tree, I love Canada and will never leave. Can't. I'm frozen to the ground. :H

    Isn't it great when you can here the clock tick?

    Good morning, afternoon or evening, everyone.

    Sounds like everyone made it through Christmas-Chrimbo. It was actually my second AF Christmas, but 2112 asn't totally AF, as you know. Had a nice day iwth our friends, whom we don't see enough. The woman is leaving next week for four months in FL--does this every year, and boy, am I envious. When we worked together--in the nineties--we went for a week in mid-winter, and it was great. Her hubby may go for a week or to, but has a business here and can't be away much. He is really overweight and had a scare a couple of months ago, and stopped drinking, except occasionally in a restaurant. Wife can take it or leave it. We had a great sparkling AF blood orange drink, and it as great. Great dinner and a chocolate lava cake made in the slow cooker.

    Did some research on the Internet for attorneys and will look into contacting one or two today. Trying not to focus too much on that, but it's very hard, as the idea of being stuck for two years is overwhelming. But I am AF, and wasn't even tempted by the red wine I had to buy to use in one for the dishes.

    We are supposed to get our first real snow storm tonight into tomorrow--a foot or more Am hoping that we can get out for a few errands later. I ill probably work on Friday, but that is it for the week.

    Hope you all have a great AF day! Happy Boxing Day to all of you ho celebrate that!

    TDN

    Morning all. Up early today. I'm meeting with a trainer at the gym to get an exercise program started. I will have to face the dreaded scales with someone there writing down my numbers. A harsh way to start the day but it must be done. Besides if I can make it through Day 1 I can do this. No yoga today but... I set up my stationary bike at home with the portable DVD player. I've got 6 seasons of Sex and the City to watch but only while biking. Good incentive, no? :H
    Christmas was lovely. Very relaxed at home. Today will be the challenge. I'm not worried about drinking but the sils are very nosy and will want to know why I'm not drinking. I'm not ready to tell the so I will have to be clever. Wish me luck!
