Hi Ladies,

Murph, we usually keep the tree up until Jan 6 (little Christmas) but I think it will come down earlier this year. My cleaning crew is coming here on Friday and I would like to have it all down by the time they get here so they can clean without worrying about the tree.

Well New Years Eve is not a big deal for us, we usually go out to an early dinner then come home and watch a movie or TV, watch the ball drop on TV then go to bed. We may see if the kids want to come over and play games or something tonight. I am making New Years Day dinner, onion soup and prime rib with all the fixings. DH loves prime rib and he didn't get it for Christmas so I am making it for him tomorrow. I think I will make the home made bread again, it was so good on christmas and so easy to make. I don't remember where I got the recipe but I have seen it and the guy who made it famous on Martha Stewart , it is a no knead bread recipe if anyone is interested I can share it, the worst part about it is you have to mix up the dough and let it sit for 12-14 hours before you can bake it.

Well I am hitting the shower, going for a treatment and then to Cosco to return a video camera.

Talk to you later, if you don't sign on again Happy New Year!!!!!

Good morning!

It's hard to believe another year is almost passed. For new year's eve we get a meat and cheese tray. We eat and hang out until the ball drops, then off to bed. We let the kids stay up if they can make it.

Jan sounds like you had another relaxing day yesterday. Good for you. Have fun at the mall today.

Murph turkey dinner sounds good. What is chocolate buche? Oh yeah, I'm just a wee bit OCD. DH has to work for a couple hours today. I know as soon as he leaves I'll be up there doing a few quick things.

Suki your prime rib sounds good as well. I hope your treatment goes well today.

Happy New Year to all of you wonderful ladies!

Hi ladies.

Nikki, it's good to hear from you. Sorry for all you are going through. I hope the Effexor works for you, I have a sister who takes that and swears by it. Are you taking any hormones? I hope the new year has you feeling better.

Linda, Oh gosh, that desert sounds wonderful, your making my favorite,lemon meringue pie. When I was a kid my mother used to ask each one of us what what we wanted for a birthday cake, mine was always the lemon pie. And Linda, you make me laugh.. I agree about us women having to go thru all this stuff.. also, I hope that the new year will bring you and your sister closer.

Jan, sounds like you will be having a good New Years' evening. That buffet idea sounds great also. I've made those wrapped mini hot dogs before and they are good.

Suki,I hope you treatment goes well. With cooking that wonderful dinner for New Years Day, I hope you will be able to enjoy eating it. Also, I would love that recipe for bread. I am not much of a bread eater but when I do would prefere home made. My friends and I that go to McDonalds all make a yoget bread that is sooo simple. I have never been to a Coscos , I've heard Operah talk about it tho.

Cindy, I never make it to see the ball drop unless I have been out and come back in at that time.. Have a great evening.

Well, I will be picking my sister up in one hour to go visit someone in the nursing home then shopping. I might go out with my friend to the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino whick is about 15 min. away. They have a wonderful buffet tonight. Guess what, we got more snow last night and today. I just never stops.

Hoping all good things for everyone in the New Year, especially good health.

hey everybody! Wow you are all putting me to shame!!! I feel so lazy compared to all you busy bees! I think I have only cooked twice since Christmas... leftovers and sandwiches!

I have been thinking about putting away decorations.... I am as always doing laundry.. a few dishes daily and doing a whole lot of nothing.. I wish I had a touch of OCD!!!

MMMM Suki Prime rib! That actually sounds so yummy! I have not craved red meat since surgery and have actually had very little red meat.. I used to salivate monthly for red meat.. Suki you are an inspiration and I so admire your attitude. I am sorry for your tummy yuckies.. Glad your Mom is feeling better... Yes please for the bread recipe! DD and I have been looking for a recipe we bought yeast. I always make Irish soda bread and they all love it.. but we want to try new type.

Nik hang in there... This too shall pass... I am still having some serious roller coaster emotions... I still have the one ovary so I can't imagine what you all must be going through with taking the hormones.. I would assume it might take some long adjustment periods for some.

Cindy the year has just flown by for me! In about a week It will a year since I quit smoking.. 2007 was my first smoke free year in almost 30 years.. No more smoking... no more periods... Yep I truly feel ready to start the new year..
We do not have a set thing for New Years we always do something different.. I like to stick around home as my dogs go a little freaky with the fireworks.. 4th of july is a home night too! so far no plans... We did buy ingredients for hot artichoke spinach dip so that definitly will be part of whatever plans we come up with. I am all for movies and snacking maybe some games. I think 21 year old is actually going to be home as he had accident at work and had to get his thumb stitched back together.. so maybe games and sparkling cider! Seriously this girl knows how to party.. YAAAWN.

Suki,Murph, Jan,Cindy, Joan Nikkic,and Lisa and anyone else I may have missed Happy New Year to you and yours.. I am so grateful for all of you!
You all have been so important in this healing journey.. may we continue on together in 2008!

Things are slow back at work today in HR land so just wanted to take a moment to say happy new year to everyone. I haven't posted much but have really enjoyed reading each of your posts. We all survived the holidays. Our tree is still up but tomorrow it comes down pronto!! Will be stopping by target tonight to get storage boxes and sweet-talking DH into climbing up into the scary attic and putting everything back! About to venture into a bathroom remodel, can't wait for that one!

SAS- the probiotic is designed to put all of the healthy bacteria back into your system. Where an antibiotic kills all of the bacteria the probiotic makes sure you have a balance (and not get a yeast infection from the antibiotics!). I highly recommend the shake. Been getting up at 4:45 am and going to the gym (someone ask me WHY???) so it's good to come home and make and drink on the drive to work.

I'm about to do a cleanse for the next 30 days. It's a bunch of pills to swallow in a day but it's nice to start the new year with clean insides. I do the Tiao He Cleanse, designed to cleanse the liver, blood and colon but DH tells me as long as they cleanse multiple things, they all work about the same. It's designed for 15 days but if you get diarrhea from 2 pkts a day, you should ease back to one, thus making it 30 days instead of 15.

It's been a great year, finally glad to be past all of the pain and glad I bit the bullet and had the hysto. Reading all of the posts, it's amazing how much we have to be thankful for. So, I'm grateful (thus the name ) for each of you and the support you have offered. Going to the doc to get the hormone levels checked next week so hopefully the 'blues' will turn to pinks or yellows!!! DS celebrated 14th birthday over the weekend and went to see the great debaters and it is a great family movie. Amazing it's been 14 years they DO grow so fast.

I pray each of you has a very safe night. We'll do church and home to snack food (nachos, potato skins, pound cake) and movie. Great appetizer recipe: Get 15 or so jalapenos (fresh) cut in half and remove seeds and veins (so they won't be hot), fill with cream cheese (I use low fat) and then cut bacon into 3 strips, put bacon on top of jalapeno. Pop in the oven on 400 until bacon is cooked, DH and DS LOVE IT. Was a big hit at Christmas party we hosted for friends. Don't clean jalapenos under water though, I was hacking and coughing something terrible. So, our night is full of junk food and DH and I rarely make it until midnight. We thought about getting a hotel room and getting romantic and about peed our pants laughing at how we'd be sleep before the first shirt came off!! At least we're on the same page!!

So, better get back to seeing who's being naughty at work today. Thank God I haven't had to fire anyone over the holidays, makes me sad even when they do it to themselves.

The best to each of you and your entire families!!! Here's to a HEALTHY 2008 for all Oct 1-8 ladies!!!

Here you go ladies....enjoy

No Knead Bread Recipe

Adapted from Jim Lahey, Sullivan Street Bakery
Time: About 1½ hours plus 14 to 20 hours’ rising
3 cups all-purpose or bread flour, more for dusting
¼ teaspoon instant yeast
1¼ teaspoons salt
Cornmeal or wheat bran as needed. ( just use flour)

1. In a large bowl combine flour, yeast and salt. Add 1 5/8 cups water, and stir until blended; dough will be shaggy and sticky. Cover bowl with plastic wrap. Let dough rest at least 12 hours, preferably about 18, at warm room temperature, about 70 degrees.

2. Dough is ready when its surface is dotted with bubbles. Lightly flour a work surface and place dough on it; sprinkle it with a little more flour and fold it over on itself once or twice. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rest about 15 minutes.

3. Using just enough flour to keep dough from sticking to work surface or to your fingers, gently and quickly shape dough into a ball. Generously coat a cotton towel (not terry cloth) with flour, wheat bran or cornmeal; put dough seam side down on towel and dust with more flour, bran or cornmeal. Cover with another cotton towel and let rise for about 2 hours. When it is ready, dough will be more than double in size and will not readily spring back when poked with a finger.

4. At least a half-hour before dough is ready, heat oven to 450 degrees. Put a 6- to 8-quart heavy covered pot (cast iron, enamel, Pyrex or ceramic) in oven as it heats. When dough is ready, carefully remove pot from oven. Slide your hand under towel and turn dough over into pot, seam side up; it may look like a mess, but that is O.K. Shake pan once or twice if dough is unevenly distributed; it will straighten out as it bakes. Cover with lid and bake 30 minutes, then remove lid and bake another 15 to 30 minutes, until loaf is beautifully browned. Cool on a rack.

Yield: One 1½-pound loaf.

Hi everyone,
I have actually been pretty lazy today. I'm doing laundry, but other than that I have been laying around watching movies with the kids. DH just called and is on his way home from work.

Sas I'm all for staying in on New Years Eve too. It's funny, DH and I used to always go out to a party or to a bar with friends on New year's eve. Staying home would have been way too boring. Funny how priorities change. Congrats on being smoke free for a year! I think that is great! I'm going to take my tree and decorations down tomorrow. It's always fun putting them up but It's just another chore taking them down. Don't feel bad about not doing much of anything. Pretty soon school will start and we get to start our lovely routines again!

Joan it gets harder every year for me to stay awake until midnight. Sometimes I can't wait for that ball to drop so I can get to bed! I hope you have a good time tonight.

gratefulme good to hear from you. Sound like you have a nice evening planned. We will go to church as well before we start our night. Happy birthday to your son. They do grow fast. Good luck at your appt. next week.

Suki thanks for the recipe! You always have the best recipes. Take care of yourself. You have an amazing spirit. I admire you.

Happy new year everyone!!

Hi All,

Had a good time shopping. We went out to lunch which was not planned but a good surprise. Deviled eggs are in the fridge and the rest of the snacks are set to go later. I am ready for the evening. It will be interesting to see how hard it is for DH to make it to midnight!

Gratefulme my DH will love those jalapenos, I wrote that down as well as Suki's bread that sounds really easy. Thanks for sharing!

Sas good for you on the smoking. That is probably the best thing you could have done for your health. Bravo!!

I hope you all have a great evening!

Happy New Year!!

Wanted to see if our sweet suki posted her bread recipe!! Thanks! I am going to start it tonight I think and bake tomorrow. Right now it is just me and #1 DD.. DH and #1DS and #2DD went motorcycle riding. I dropped #2DS off at a party... ? Parents are home so all should be safe. But I am feeling a little anxious will be happier when everyone is home safe.

#1 DD says she wants to become a vegetarian as her New Years resolution so she and I drove thru and got burgers and fries... our last for awhile.. I am worried it is another ploy of hers to be disguising dieting as "eating healthier... " I just have to keep an extra eye on her.. I seriously think I may have distorted her self image by referring to myself as fat... I am hoping I am repairing any damage I may have done. So the we are turning to "house of the healthy" we have made alot of changes focusing on health not weight.
Grateful I think it is awesome you are going to the gym every morning! I try to do something evry day but it is hard when everyone is home. Yesterday I borrowed one of kids Ipod and shook my groove thing while doing dishes anything that will help me sweat a little. I also take advantage of my messy family by squating when I am picking up after all of them... That is an easy couple of sets! Thanks for the Jalapeno recipe Will have to try that soon!

Just wanted to stop in real quick and wish everyone a health, happy new year
A quiet evening ahead, here. DH has to work until 8 tonight and then be back at 7AM tomorrow. My boys are out for the evening, so I plan on watching TV and probably falling asleep on the couch in the process.
I hope everyone stays safe tonight. I'll check back in tomorrow.
