Saturday, 11/17 Weekends can be sneaky!

Saturday, November 17, 2012

Hi all,

I'm on a tight schedule today... I went quickly to weigh-in, but got there too late for the meeting. It would seem that WW starts their meeting on Saturdays anyway, so I'll get to be a part of the topic (Thanksgiving eating) when I go on Wednesday anyway. I missed last week's topic, but it was "Why I want to lose weight," and I have that well under control.

I am heading for our local reading council's meeting. Mitchell, our son who teaches 5th grade, is going too. The topic is reading comprehension and I cannot know too much on that one. It's a big topic and the biggest concern of reading educators. It will be interesting to see what this speaker's approach is.

After that, I am going to the pool for my workout. My hip is doing tons better now that I am over the hip injection. It is amazing what these shots do--all the while remembering that my ortho told me it is the fact that it works that indicates my hip joint needs replacing. I hope to have time to study after I work out and get dinner. My weigh in day is our pizza night, ha ha, but I earned it. I lost 2.4 this week and was surprised to see SparkPeople call it one pound until I remembered that I never recorded the pound I gained last week. Anyway, we need a quick meal because we are going to go see Marissa's play. She is the "bad guy" in "The Tempest." I won't go on my rant about their band director and how stupid it is for high school students to do Shakespeare right now, but that about sums it up. I don't remember if I bragged about Marissa but she was selected to be one of 300 high school students to sing in the National Choir, as chosen by the National High School Director's music association in Dallas Texas in March. Our young lady is so talented, but she doesn't have time for a life these days. We need to get on a couple of college visits, uh like yesterday...

By the way, the child that stole my books at the family night came into the room without a parent. I saw her meet somebody and then when I looked up, they were all gone. I know she took the books because I had one copy of a title that she had and it was gone after she had picked it up. I wish I knew who she was. I have made a conscientious decision that I will not go to another of these activities again, They are simply too upsetting for my spirit. They are also not mandatory, but I felt as if it was important for me to attend, to get to meet parents and have them see me, and with this one having a reading focus, to be there as the building expert. Uh,"bah humbug" is my new sentiment.

It's time to get going. We have to drop Micah off bowling on the way to my meeting. Have a wonderful weekend--and don't let a sneaky Saturday get in there and mess up your good eating habits or interfere with your workout today. Saturdays are notorious for such things.

Gentle hugs,

    So glad your hip is doing better now! Way to go on the weight loss! Don't know how you do it because stress hinders it and you have so much to stress about!!
    That is fantastic about Marissa, I sure hope something comes of her singing talent some day!

    Hang on for the ride of the busy days! I think you're making the right call on the family night. Maybe just do one each year like you did to meet some parents and then be done.

    I'm coming down from my busy weekend...so glad as I'm exhausted!
