Updates All Around (Week 12)

Questions have been posed about my last class/test.... I am THRILLED to no end to be done, and I feel pretty confident about the state exam. I am, however, having a difficult time remaining patient while the state processes all the exams and submits our results. I think I can I think I can... wait.

Bud's birthday party was good despite the cold temperatures and rain. All the boys had a great time playing army in the woods for the weekend, complete with VERY IMPORTANT MISSIONS. Seriously. Unfortunately, the camera was without batteries. Not smart. You'll have to take my word for it: he was adorable and the boys were nearly invisible all dressed in camo. Uncle D, you'd be so proud. Oh yeah, and daddy and daddy's best friend stayed in the woods with the boys, and froze, and didn't sleep... So they called me to get me up to come up and start breakfast.... at FIVE. In the MORNING. *sigh* I'm still trying to recoup.

Ah yes... now on to the weight issue. Yes, this week, it IS an issue..... When all was said and done, I lost NOTHING. Which, I know... I said J said "stop" and that I would not actively pursue weight loss.... So, I didn't... I didn't count one single point.... And during the first two days, I lost an additional one and a half pounds... then Bud's birthday rolled around... and a weekend long campout/picnic/cookout..... So I went up two pounds, then back down the half to where I started last Wednesday to begin with. *sigh* Back to counting points. I'm afraid if I don't, those twenty pounds I just so happily shed will easily sneak back on.... Can't have that. I think I can, I think I can.... stay on track.
