Twelve weeks this Tuesday and three months the Tuesday after that. Here we go. I think it was Brenda [Edit: it was Michele] who told me to grow my nails out so I can hang on; I decided acrylics were in order (aka, sounded like a nice excuse to have the novel experience). Already had an urge strong enough to make me a little dizzy, driving home from getting my nails done. Heeeere we go.

Oh how pretty, Meredith.  They look fabulous.  What a lovely treat for yourself and they help you to hang on tight !!  I had them done once, but being such a dork, I couldn't do ANYTHING with them.   Couldn't do my bra or zip my pants or button a shirt.  My hubby had to dress me everyday. But I sure thought they were fancy and so pretty.  Way to go, almost to the 3 month mark.  So very proud of you !!

I know it's not formally correct but 12 weeks is a victory and I'm taking it. grin
