Weekend Roundup

It was a quiet weekend, which was nice! Saturday I cleaned house, hung out in the pool with Wizard and we went out to dinner.  Sunday, Wizard was gone and I got a lot done with my proposal. Now I just need to revise, polish and pray!

Oh and last week at Weight Watchers, they said I lost two pounds.  I’m finding that hard to believe–between our trip to Texas and my brick sized piece birthday cake (it was soooo good!), I’m suspicious. We’ll see this week. Although I do stay pretty much in my points except for Cheat Days or Meals. And that was suggested to me strongly by my doctor by the way.  He says everyone should have a Cheat Day or Cheat Meal once a week or so.

And that’s about it for me. How was your weekend?

    Congratulations on the additional two pounds. You may have been away from home but you must have eaten right.

    My weekend didn’t get much better than last week. With the 19 yr old cracking his head open last Wednesday and getting 3 staples he proceeds to get hurt at work Sat. He had a dunk tank drop on his foot smashing his left big toe. After Wednesday’s ER trip he refuses to go about his toe. I just pray it heals correctly. Other than that a good weekend.

    Way to go on the 2 lbs! Good job. The best I did was to not gain weight during my vacation.

    The weekend was spent decompressing after the vaca and getting the cats over the whole ‘separation anxiety’ thing they went through. Oh, and sorting through the 300+ pics I took. If this writing thing doesn’t pan out I’m thinking I could try selling my photos. Couldn’t hurt. ;o)

    Lawyer Guy and I celebrated our 28th year of not killing each other by enjoying dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. I cheated and nommed the spinach and artichoke dip with the homemade pita and parmasan chips. I gained the two pounds you lost, plus a couple more, LOL. I’m back on a stricter interpretation of the diet and on my way back down.

    My desktop went belly up on Friday afternoon after a reboot. I’m hoping it’s just a memory stick. If it’s more…well…positive thoughts! Hot water tank is dripping but we’re nursing it along for as long as possible. Lots of wet towels in my future. :roll:

    We did get some rain yesterday! And I’ve come up with the four titles I needed and the bare-bones plots for one of the sequels. No I have to write up some synopses, do more plotting, and some polishing and revising. I also want to get new words written. So much time, and such a small work surface. :( Here’s hoping I hear something back from the independent geek guys who are checking out my “toaster” (that’s what I call my little desktop CPU.)

    Glad you had a good weekend, Jen, and CONGRATS on breaking through on the proposal!!!! :D

    Congrats Jen thats great, i wish i could do as well with diets as you seam to be doing, personally i blame the food, it shouldn’t look so scrummy and then i wouldn’t have a ‘see food and eat it diet all the time’ lol.

    My weekend was accually good for once, i had a BBQ round the aunts last night, my cousin and his GF are offically engaged and i made my own website up, im so proud of my self. :D its going to be all different im going to put my own stories and drawing up on it and im even going to do book and film reveiws.

    which reminds me is it ok with you if i put a link on my website for you :D and if any of you other witches want me to do the same let me know :D

    Viki, what a rough weekend with your son! Hope he’s feeling better! Very frustrating that you couldn’t get him to go to emergency with his toe, but I know how stubborn boys can be.

    Hope your week is smooth sailing!

    B.E., isn’t it amazing how much work a vacation is? Hope the kitties have recovered.

    I have a friend who chose photography over writing. I’m thinking she’ll go back to writing someday, but she truly has a gift with photography. But still–I think you have the soul of a writer :-)

    Silver, when it rains it pours on you! We had the water heater go out a year or so ago, and it’s an expensive pain in the butt.

    The computer gives me chills! I really hope it’s the memory stick. But yay on making progress with titles and plots! It’s time well spent!

    And huge congrats to you and Lawyer Guy on your 28 years together!

    Zoe, I love the see-food diet! I miss it a lot! Dieting is hard and I had to want it bad enough to finally do it. Plus you’re managing a lot in your life. Dieting is time consuming–finding the foods, preparing them, etc.

    I’m glad you had a good weekend and congrats to your cousin! And can you share the link to your website so we can see it? And of course, you can link to me if you wish.
