Where is everybody?
Please check in. I know I am the worst offender when it comes to going MIA, mea culpa, mea culpa, but we all really do need one another's encouragement to stay on the wagon through these next few crucial weeks.
Kelly, go for being buff. Who cares what the scale says as long as you look good, feel good and fit in you favorite clothes. After almost three months of being a vegetable I can tell you that there is nothing as good as being strong and active. In just that short time I grew new lumps on my thighs. Ugh. It is so nasty.
Ellen, I was looking at a picture of you today on FB and I can see that you practice what you preach. Your arms are very toned and look wonderful. I also see that you have first-class tickets booked across the pond in March. What are your departure and arrival points? What airline?
Joe wants to go back to Switzerland again in March for some more skiing but I won't go if I can't get first-class on Lufthansa. I have flown international first on United, British, Singapore, Malaysian, Air New Zealand and Lufthansa and Lufthansa has hands-down by far the best service and amenities--I am crazy about the caviar and iced vodka. Well I suppose if I really wanted to go somewhere, I would settle for business class, but I would surely be missing the caviar.
Kathy, how are you feeling? Don't let your bug get the best of you.
Marianne, what's happening in your life?
I am sorry that I got so far out of touch with everyone.
Time for me to get some sleep as I will be playing chauffeur for all of the single ladies attending the funeral tomorrow. We will be leaving an hour early as the parking, I am sure, will be insane. Following the funeral I need to scoot everybody back home and get into the office for payroll. The employees have to get paid on a regular basis. ;-) Fortunately, business has been really good and I am feeling very optimistic for 2012.
Off to sleep, Punki
Breathless with anticipation
