ARRGH! Monday Already?

I had a dream about work last night. A person who adds a great deal of tension to the work environment has been out on a leave of absence. (That is a major reason the job has been tolerable for the last few weeks.)  Last night I dreamed she came back early. (Insert dramatic piano chords and crack of thunder.) Yup, I need to step up the casual job search from casual to active. My subconscious is reminding me that this lull in the tension at the office is temporary, and I won't be happy when it ends.

So my three day weekend is on day three, and I have slacked, slept, read and rested. Today I'm treating as a work day, for ME. There are some things I want to get done that will improve my own quality of life and help move me toward my personal goals, and today I will work on those things. And swim. I definitely will swim.

I'm glad you're feeling better. So am I. Other than to walk to the top of the stairs to see if I had any mail, I haven't left the house since I got home Friday. Of course, part of that's because it's been raining almost all weekend. Seriously, this month is now the rainiest on record, and the entire state is now no longer in drought, which is good, but holy crap, I'm tired of the rain and the flooding, and and and.... Usually by this time we're complaining about how hot it is, but the temp's been mostly in the 60s and low 70s for the last 3 weeks. We did get one beautiful day last Thursday when our staff went to camp for a day. It was nice to be outdoors and take a hike and enjoy the wildflowers.

So, the major weight-loss push is almost over. I'm 0.2 pounds away from my goal of 70 pounds. I guess you could safely say I've already made it, but I'm a little afraid to believe it. I feel like my old self again. My clotheshorse tendencies are back in full swing, I love going to thrift shops. I've found such great clothes and saved so much money. My friends have been so caring and supporting (including you), I don't know how to thank them properly.For the first time in longer than I can remember, I feel good. Nothing can top that.

Here's to a good week for both of us. Give the kids a scritch for me....

Hope something wonderful turns up in the search. You have way earned it.

OMG KatyaR, that is beyond amazing! I've gained and lost the same two pounds for months, and I am in awe!

Believe me, Catherine, I have lost the same 20 pounds over and over the last 5 months. It seemed to take forever, but I'm finally done, hit 70 pounds this morning. Now I just have to keep it off. I think that scares me more than trying to lose it.
