My last few days

It’s been a little wacky these last few days – heck, WEEKS, but who’s counting?

Although we spent the weekend brain-farting, the spousal unit and I were extremely pooped when we started back up on Monday. We both had a pretty intense cold that just knocked us down. We spent the weekend watching brain-fade TV and relaxing. I think we finally left our pajamas on Sunday – only because we had to go to Weight Watchers.

Weight Watchers

I think I just finished week 4 of my “maintenance” routine. That means 2 more weeks to go until LIFETIME (which = FREE meetings and support). $40 a month has been soooooooooo worth it (don’t get me wrong), but ZERO sounds great, too! I am maintaining quite well. My goal was 135 and I’ve gained and lost about a pound each week. THAT IS PERFECT! I’m not supposed to be below 133 or higher than 137.

Wait until Thanksgiving. I think the Sunday after T-Day is my final weigh-in. Wish me luck.

NaNoWriMo

Wellllll, I am approximately 5000 words behind. The cold this last weekend wiped me out – and I spent Friday with my dad.

Annnnndddd, I read a book:

The Hunger Games

The first in Suzanne Collins’ trilogy about a “game show” (of sorts) where young people aged 12 to 18 are tributes in a fight to the death.

Quite good!

Unfortunately, I have the second book in the trilogy, Catching Fire, next to me on the desk. It’s a little too tempting.

Cooking with the Kiddos

WHAT WAS I THINKING!!?? Yesterday, I planned a “day of cooking” with 16 rambunctious, monkey-energied children. The good news? There were no heat sources involved (I thought that much ahead). But we made Energy Balls with peanut butter, banana, graham crackers, and various toppings. What a mess!!

There just wasn’t enough time! They made (maybe) 20 balls. Sigh. Ah, well, whatcha gonna do?

Off I go. Chores to do, novels to read, novels to write, children to educate (hee hee – I’m REALLY the one who gets the education).

Have a good one – whatever you do.
