Weigh-in Friday

Today is my weigh-in day.  I had to be pretty tough on myself this week cause I was up 4 pounds.  Well, this morning I got on the scale ~naked~ and I lost those 4 plus 1/2 more.  So that was good.

Tomorrow I am heading to the beach with my son and two of his friends.  They are all here right now and we are leaving at 8 in the morning.  It will take 2 hours to get there.  I live in a desert (irrigated, mind you) but a desert valley no less and so we have to travel over the mountain to get to San diego.  It is a nice drive.

This week has been very tiring.  I have worked all week and on top of that I have been helping out someone move.  If you have read my blog in the recent past you will recall one of my clients (that I clean for) who also goes to my know, the one that had the bypass.  Yeah, well, she and her husband split up.  In fact we loaded her up on thursday and she moved to Colorado.  It's kind of sad cause her husband is a sweet man.  He adored his wife.  I mentioned how I wasnt sure if her surgery had something to do with her wanting to leave. Hmm did I tell you about this already?  I cant remember.  Sorry if I repeat.  Well, she and I had a nice talk and she told me what was behind the breakup.  She just didn't love him like a husband.  She loved him like a best friend.  She also admitted that she was not attracted to him whatso ever.  Pretty sad.  Anyways, I told her I would help her but not that I was condoning the situation.  She appreciated it cause many of her friends just dissapeared.  Well, the day she was leaving and we were packing her uhaul I told her husband that I would be coming by the next two days after my regular jobs and I would clean up for him.  He was so grateful and I hauled stuff away that I could go through or save for our Rummage Sale at church.
So, I have been pretty tired but I am looking forward to looking out at the Pacific and saying Awwww.  This is my birthday present to myself.  I guess it would be better without 3 teenage boys but whatever.

I just realized that today is the 15th and I need to measure myself.  I'm not sure where the measuring tape is and I'm buzzing a little from my wine. hmm...

Oh, did you see my ticker?  For my countdown?  Cool huh :)

Ok, I better go now, gotta get some rest.
