Well, I have survived my first full week back plus one day! It was great being back on air with JT. Just like riding a bike. It is a lot of fun this time of year, especially, because of the Christmas music. There are so many requests, so many opinions, but we have learned you can’t please everyone all the time. We do our best! While I was getting acclimated to the morning show, I was also figuring out how to populate our new website. HOLY COW – kinda but not really user friendly. We all get used to how things work and then BAM! they change it all up on you – minus some key features. But, with progress come growing pains – so we are working on it.. famous last words. LOL!
I am doing something new for ME before I have to. I have started going to “The Weight Clinic” in Prattville. It’s off McQueen Smith Rd. I am getting off these last lingering 10 pounds that won’t leave! I have been going for a week on Saturday. The shots are not bad and the appetite suppressants are great! I have to remind myself to eat. Great one on one session with the Dr. Also some great ideas on tracking what you eat and guides to follow. And it is not a one size fits all shop. Very individual and friendly environment! My neighbor has had great success, so much so that her hubby is now going. Another friend of mine is also going and doing very well! I have seen the results and was so happy to go in and meet the staff. They have Christmas Special right now and if you say that I told you about it, after you sign up – you get a free shot! Very affordable and very effective. I am getting started before the actual eating part of Christmas starts! I feel great and love the OBGYN and the RNs there! Call them – 358-9262 and ask for Kelly! And remember my favorite line – Nothing Tastes at good as Skinny Feels! lol
The kids are doing great! Kim and Beccah are getting used to getting up w/out me here. Kim has said that she misses me in the am. That makes me feel good. Beccah gets up so early to get herself ready (I don’t know what she does – lol) we hear her alarm going off as we are walking out the door in the am.
Taping for our TV show!
We have been busy filming our TV show, The River Region TV Show w/JT & Leanne on every Friday on CW at noon and on 2 weekends a month on WSFA12News. Plus we are now writing for the Pride of Montgomery Magazine and trying to keep up with it all. I wouldn’t know what to do with only one 8-5 job. JT would drive us both crazy! We are meeting great folks like Frankie the 30lb cat! He has his own facebook page. We also got to go and pick out our Christmas Tree at Wadsworth Christmas Tree Farm in Wetumpka. It was an experience! We filmed it all for the TV show – so you wont miss a thing. I was driving, Kim and Beccah were listening to their ipods/phone and JT was sleeping. Thank goodness for GPS! Kim, our oldest, was good sport. She wasn’t crazy about coming but she did and was very respectful and a good sport, especially after she saw the cute boy who was there loading trees.. (She has good taste!)… Rebeccah picked out our Christmas tree this year. It is special to have her here. She will be with her mom for Christmas this year, but we have her with us to decorate, etc…. She picked out a “Big and Chunky” Christmas Tree! We are used to skinny ones! JT wore his Tacky Christmas sweater and it was a big hit! Great for pics and we already have requests to borrow it! We made it back home with no problems… Until I forgot that the tree was on the top of the truck and attempted to pull in the garage. LOL! Everyone survived, but my ego didn’t.. Then the Christmas Tree stand we had from last year, didn’t work. Kim and I had to go to Walmart to find a better one. Kim did great, she found one for $8! We finally get back home and we get the tree up, add water, JT trims it – funny, and then we have to take a leaf out of the dining room table and move it to the side and move the couch and recliner over, but JT made it all fit! WHEW! It was a fun experience, one we will all never forget!
Our doggies are great and Snickers loves this time of year! His favorite place is under the Christmas tree! My present this year to Freddie will be the light up leash from Walmart, and the other doggies will get some treats and they all will get bones! Snickers, well, I will let him enjoy his spot for a little bit. He isn’t a snack cat, not a fan.
His fav new spot!
Ashlee, who is in Texas with her dad this school year, will be home on December 20th! I can’t wait! We are going to visit her favorite places, ASF, Birmingham Malls & Jose’s Mexican Cantina! I can’t wait to get her home for Christmas! It will be a good one.
I hope you like the pics that go along with this crazy recap of a story!
