Cher - I hope you have a very nice trip. Enjoy the packing process and Woo Hoo on the weight loss.
Misti - I'm with Tricia - I'm not sure I'm ready for the Holidays. I do have gifts purchased for the grands and a start for dh's nephew but that is about it. Normally I would have most everything gotten already.
My moto for 2017...Do what you need to do. Count what you want to count. Enjoy the process.
