Friday weigh in: No weight lost. No weight gained either, and I gotta tell you, the whole 'comforting myself with food' has been an issue this week. I've been doing pretty well with that. So we'll just focus on the 'no weight gained' this week and call it good.
I am having my morning coffee (second cup) and about to head back to the other computer where a charming human cadaver awaits. We will cover muscles and bones for the big tests on Monday. Tim works second shift, and that has actually been a big help. By the time that I get home from school, he's off to work. I have the evening with my books. It gets kind of lonesome though, and I'm sure he's lonesome too.
A kind of cool thing happened. I had to go to the local store to get some colored pencils for labeling muscles. I saw an excellent deal on a book that I thought would be a good Christmas gift for the girls. I stood there flipping through it, and suddenly, it occurred to me that I could buy those books. Tim's back to work now. So I gathered up six books, and headed off to the register with my books and colored pencils. On the way, I saw a toothbrush holder with matching liquid soap dispenser. We have needed a toothbrush holder for a time, ours being too small to accomodate the handles of our toothbrushes. I stood there once more, just reveling in the wonder that if I wanted to buy this I could. And so I did. I spent a whopping total of $10.87, and walked out of the store with my bags feeling like a rich woman.
I'll study this morning, and take a break to get the house cleaned (oh, man, does it ever need it...) and then I'll go back to the books after Tim leaves for work. Tonight though, I've got plans. I'm headed out the door to have dinner at 'new' Mary's with some of the funniest people that I know. We'll be blabbing and laughing and eating. I'm looking forward to this more than words can say.
