Happy Monday! I hope you had a fantastic weekend!
We traveled to my sister’s house outside Boston this weekend, for my nephew’s birthday party. We left Saturday morning, after dropping our geriatric cat off at the
spa vet. Her kidneys are failing, and she needs several daily medications to keep her comfortable. Our time with her is limited, but she’s hanging in there, for now.
We had a relatively uneventful drive – it takes about 4.5 hours – and got to spend some time with my parents and my sister’s family, before heading to the party.
On Sunday, we headed home late in the morning, and stopped to pick up some mums and apples on the way. At home, I did laundry and some tidying up, while my husband worked on staining the deck.
The Week Ahead
This is my first week back at work, since early May. I’m working Tuesday and Wednesday, because Thursday is a school holiday. My daughter has her first Brownies meeting of the year after school today, and gymnastics class Wednesday evening. As of now, we don’t have any weekend plans, but we may check out the Adirondack Wool and Arts Festival one day.
Things have been going pretty well with Weight Watchers. I’ve lost 8.5 pounds, and would like to lose 5-7 more. It’s going to get a little harder as I return to work, though, since my job is 100% sedentary, and I won’t be able to go for walks on my work days. My hope is that the weather will cooperate, and I’ll be able to go for longer walks on my non-work days – at least until I start working at my second job in about a month.
