end of a great week

Coming to the end of a great week.
I have not been able to track a calorie - did well the beginning of the week, then... I either didn't have time to or couldn't get online due to slooooooooooow connection. I kept track of fruits & veggies and water at times but could not begin to know how to track calories on things I didn't fix... Birthday cake, party food, etc. I got on the scales at my Mom's and gained 2 lbs this week. We'll see what my scales say when I get home. I am not too worried about it - I will get back on the exercise and within calorie range when I get back home. I fly out on Saturday and then it is back to normal healthy living again.
It has been a good week with family and I wouldn't trade it. I did surprise my Mom on her 80th birthday. My brother planned a cook out with other family there - she was not expecting me since I live in California and she in Indiana. I walked in asking where she wanted me to put the birthday cake - she stared at me in wonderment, then said well!..., then she started crying... It had been over a year since I was home last.
We also surprised our in-laws since no one but one of my brothers and my daughter knew I was coming. We had a great time with Grandkids and I saw all of my brothers.
