I didn't get anything exciting...but, I told him I didn't want anything. But, my DH did good. He got 2 things off my list and I ordered myself a necklace so I am good.
T got me the Despicable Me movie that I have wanted forever.
A got me a gift card to Barnes & Noble. And, DH got me an armband for my Iphone when I am walking. So, I was thrilled with my gifts. And, we had just spent so much $$ with buying a new car for A, Tires for A's car and DH's truck and then the new computer. UGH!!! We are on a desperate cut back so we can build up our accts again.
My husband is not good at gifts, his whole family is the same way and my family is such a big surprise family so its different. Christmas isn't the same since my mother passed three years ago and I am in charge of buying gifts for everyone including myself so I am always happy with what I get! LOL My DH was funny this year, we bought a new headboard and frame for our bed and my DH turned in his Amex points from his business card and we upgraded our TV in the bedroom to a 40 inch for free and he tried to tell me that those were my gifts! Ha! I told him I will take the headboard but the TV is all his!
I was excited to be able to get my DD an xbox from my father and she was so excited! I didn't think a senior in college had time for video games but who knows??
I have to get going on the treadmill too but I will start after the first of the year too much football on.
Siobhan- have you kept a food journal at all? See what youre eating each day to potentially find a trigger? I have a friend who had her gb out a couple years ago. She said her triggers were what and dairy (if I remember right) so it could be anything youre eating.
Siobhan, I had my GB out in June and after that it seems that I am having issues with bread or certain types of like "gluten". I can eat like whole grainy wheat but white bread or some other stuff like that will trigger sick. I had stones, and it was full when they took it out, wish they were diamonds....LOL good luck!
Oh and I have started keeping a food journal great suggestion! It tells so much!
