It has been an interesting week around here this week. It has been plagued with restless sleep, neck pain, dental work, and the first full week of water aerobics since mid-December. It has also been sprinkled with comforts - connecting again with DH, heated rice packs, flannel sock monkey PJs, handknit socks
, good books
, and good music
It has also been a week of triumph. While I've been loosing weight (slowly) since March it hasn't felt very real as there has been no acquisition of better fitting clothes. However, this week new jeans arrived and next week I should also have some new pants arriving. Then, today I went to Longmont to exchange a sweater my mom had given me for Christmas that was not my style and sized for me 30 pounds ago. I came home with another pair of pants and two great sweaters! Nevertheless it has been one looooong week!
Now, this weekend I have things to look forward to - tonight we'll be sharing bowls of chilli and movie(s) with a few friends. Tomorrow I go to a late matinee of Memoirs of a Geisha
followed by sushi at what may be the last stop on our Sushi Tour of Fort Collins (though there is rumor of a new or soon opening sushi restaurant). Then Sunday evening we'll be gathering at a friend's house for a pot luck taco bar to celebrate all the January birthdays in our social circle.
