OK, first off, Happy New Year to everyone. We had a great one this year. We played our new Wii pretty much all day long. Around 7pm we decided we needed to eat so we went to dinner. As soon as we got home we started playing Wii sports. We did that until midnight- toasted then went to bed. I believe Mick stayed up and played more Excite-Truck…. yes, it’s addictive.
My visit with my parents went very well. I was sad when they left. My mom had a good time. Her hand was hurting her but didn’t slow her down much. Tom made shelves for me in my craft closet- which was one thing I asked for for Christmas. YEAH!!!!
We went to A Night At The Museum- which was really cute.
Physical Therapy is killing me. I am exhausted after every session. My physical therapist said that I am in no way, shape, or form to carry ANYTHING. NADA. NIL. NIET. And he also said I needed 3 more weeks of therapy.
I did really well over the holidays with my weight loss. I didn’t over indulge or stray. I did have a mini cupcake. Well, ok 3. But it was part of my 20% of eating what I wanted. OMG they were so good. They were from a specialty bakery and they were fresh and had very creamy, yummy coconut frosting. They were little- not regular size. It was worth saving up for and I still lost weight that week. MMMMM CUPCAKES……. My new goal is to maintain the 50 pounds until I can go back to the gym. Then I’m shooting for another 50. I’m SO happy about the weight loss. I feel so much better. I got out my box of littler clothes. I still have ONE box to go- of my really little clothes. I will make it back into those.
School starts back up for me on Monday. I’ve enjoyed the break but getting back into the swing of things will be nice.
I just finished reading Survivor by Chuck Palaniuk. It was, as usual, very good. I am now reading Julie and Romeo by Jeanne Ray. I got it plus the sequel for my birthday. It’s cute so far. I read the Traveling Pants trilogy as recommended by my reading guru. (who I’ve been known to call while I’m in the middle of the bookstore trying to pick out books). That was a cute series and quick reading. I actually saw the movie too- and it was good. Light hearted and entertaining. Just what i needed.
I made out like a bandit for Christmas. I got a lot of money (to go towards a printing press), a bird house (made by Thomas), a pink candle (made by Graham), table linens and Borders gift card. It was great. I haven’t used my gift certificate yet-nor have I picked out a printing press. I’m still debating that one…..
I’ve been listening to that song “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol. I love that song. Especially the part that says:
Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life
All that I am
All that I ever was
It’s here in your perfect eyes
They’re all I can see
such a good song. Well that’s enough for me.
