We had our work holiday potluck today. The company provided Turkey, gravy, stuffing and mashed potatoes. Everyone else pot lucked the rest. I brought Praline Yams. The only green stuff was salad so I filled half of my plate with it. There was also pumpkin Pie, of course, I had to have a piece. I'm stuffed since I also had my usual breakfast. Today I will walk to post office, 3 miles away to submit the paperwork for my pension that I am sooo thankful to have. I hope when I get back I'll feel less stuffed.

Last night we went to see the Sharks get killed by the Tampa Lightning, 5-1. I hate to see them lose. We went to The Poor House Bistro a Cajun restaurant. That was fun and when I weighed myself this AM I was down to 124.7 from 126.5 the day before. I never really worry about a lb or two fluctuation since I understand all of the different parameters that affect your weight but I weigh myself everyday Since we went to the Sharks game I didn't do any decluttering but life impedes all goals sooner or later.

    WooHoo for pensions! I have a couple of lbs to give you to get rid of for me -- seems to be easier for you. :)

    That potluck sounds so good! I keep forgetting about your Thanksgiving coming up later in the month and I was thinking, "wow, her company really celebrates Christmas early" emoticon

    I just read back over your last few blogs and am excited for your anticipated retirement. My dad, who couldn't sit still, took an early retirement at age 58 and he told me later that he was very anxious about it even right up until the last day. Afterwards he said he didn't know where he found the time to work!

    Your holiday luncheon sounds wonderful. And good for you for doing the salad as well as enjoying some of the other things. That is one thing I do miss about work - we used to have special lunch days several times throughout the year. My favorite was the Chili Cookout - we got to eat from several different pots of chili and then vote for the one that we liked the best. The firm would provide some kind of prize for the top 3.

    I am a huge hockey fan also! Love my Montreal Canadiens. I like the big shark head that the sharks skate out of for playoffs. Enjoy!
