My weekend was quiet. I cleaned, worked on Ethan and Ana’s novella while waiting for edits on Savaged Dreams and hung out with Wizard. Oh and I rejoined Weight Watchers Online. I debated even mentioning this because I’m not a fan of defining a woman by her weight in any way. Plus… I’m not hugely overweight. This is just about staying in control and this helps me regain a sense of control. My days of wanting to be fashionably thin (LOL, I’ve NEVER been that, my body build is short, muscular and curvy, not tall and slender) or rocking a bikini are over. I’m just interested in getting dressed and feeling confident and comfortable. And FYI I wear a bikini around the pool at my house anyway
So…I told Wizard that I rejoined Weight Watchers.
Wizard’s response? “If that’s what you want, I’ll help you. I like most of the stuff you cook on Weight Watchers.”
That’s my hero! I love that he supports me when I want to make a change. (My weight loss goals are smallish, which he also supports.)
And then two days later, which would be last night, Wizard says, “I heard there’s a chocolate festival in San Diego.”
Hmm…he meant he’d support me when he said it, LOL! Okay seriously, one day at a chocolate festival isn’t a big deal in the scheme of things. So as soon as I post this blog, I’m going to look up this chocolate festival and see if we can go. I just thought it was funny he mentioned it two days after vowing to help me.
On the work end of things, I’m enjoying getting to know Ethan and Ana again, and digging in deeper now that they are the hero and heroine of the story rather than secondary characters. For me, they were immensely likeable characters in the Plus One Chronicles, but for this novella, I had to get past that likableness to find their real flows. That’s still a work in progress, but I’m getting there! Flaws make a hero/heroine so much more interesting in my opinion!
So how was your weekend?
