Since I had been to the 2009 convention, this was a chance to reconnect with friends and make new friends. To all who spent any time with me this weekend, thank you so much! I was able to take home lots of encouragement, kindness, and positive energy which were desperately needed as I came home to a house with a non-functioning kitchen sink and all the mess you can imagine which accompanies such a thing. But guess what I did not do? I did not go grab a handful of junk food! I did make a plan and start wading through the messes one at a time. I even decided to go to a church dinner since we had no way to cook and ate healthy stuff (grilled chicken and salad) with tastes of the goodies (chocolate this and chocolate that) so I was satisfied but not stuffed. Over the weekend I actually LOST weight - that doesn't generally happen!
I am thinking I need a private tutorial for yoga from Lee (SWDOTB2) to help with the stress. Last night I was sure wishing she was still down the hall because I would have been knocking on the door! But I did remember some of the mental tips she gave and that has helped immensely with my stressful life. Granted, many others have much more in their lives. I just don't always deal with mine so well and so I am grateful for her direction this weekend both at yoga and in life.
More quick thanks:
Beth (~INDYGIRL) Thanks for putting this together!
Greg (KSIGMA1222) Thanks for being my buddy this weekend!
Tina(HOOSIERGIRLINDY) Thanks for being the special lady you are!
Carol (ELSEEBEE) Thanks for coming even after your spill and get well soon!
I found the memory card reader so I'll get pix together eventually. First, I need a kitchen sink!
