On Saturday morning I went the eye doctor to FINALLY get back into contacts. I wore contacts all through high school and college, but when I graduated and started dating my future husband, glasses seemed appropriate for an English teacher and my husband thought I looked cute. I have been meaning to switch back to contacts every since my daughter was born in 2011, so I was so happy to finally get it done.
My husband's father did not book reservations in time for us to go camping. Since this was the 2nd time he has cancelled on us it left my husband feeling pretty disappointed. So, with my tutoring money I booked us a hotel room using every discount I could think of (summer rates, AAA membership, etc.). The three of us basked in our glory of having our OWN space. It was a nice change of environment. I even got one whole hour of the hotel room to myself and got some writing done. If I had a hotel 24/7 my writing would be so much more productive lol.
Since this was a "mini-vacation" my husband (and I must admit me too for awhile) thought that also meant splurging on food.
I have to confess though, that having NOT binged on junk food in awhile, it was NOT as "fun" as I remember it being. I felt sick to my stomach. I guess I just can't eat that much anymore. I am paying more attention to my body's clues and I count that as a huge internal victory. Something must've gone right with my resistance to splurge because the scale moved DOWN after our vacation- wow. I was afraid this morning's weigh in would be higher.
I tutored both days which is GREAT because sometimes the family cancels and that meant much more money in the bank for my husband and I.
Watched some Mommy shows. I don't know what I am going to do when I get to the season 2 finale of Carnivale...it was cancelled after that. Sad.
Played 2 new Mommy games on the iPad, both are proving to be quite addicting since there is a facebook aspect so I can see my friend's high scores.
My cousin also went back up to school (making the house less tense) for what we are all hoping is her last semester of college. Its the home stretch for her, we all know she can do it.
