Weekend review

Do I really have to wake up in 6 hours? Ugh.... Yes I do.

It was a long weekend. I went to my parents' house per my usual every 4 weeks routine. To accommodate my parents work schedules, I usually go when their schedules line up to both work all weekend so that I can babysit their 8 dogs. It is usually a nice vacation for my pup, as he loves to ride in the car and has 6 lady friends at their house.
Here's my sweet pooch on the ride back to our house.

Friday was my first day of real food since Thursday's fill and it quickly became apparent to me that my band isn't even close to as tight as it should be. I scheduled my next fill at the 5 week mark but I will be calling tomorrow to hopefully reschedule that.

Saturday I ate a whole myself. At least it was a healthy option. My other food choices weren't the greatest. It is always hard in their house, but that may change soon as my mom has been thinking more and more about being banded. I wish she would just try giving up carbs on her own, but I don't think it will happen. I really do support her decision either way.

When I got home from my parents house, the Banker came over. We grilled out-chicken and squash. It was very good. I ate one chicken cutlet and a few pieces of squash. It took me so long to eat my tiny plate that he had three plates of food. It really isn't fair how skinny he is! But he never says anything derogatory about how little or how slowly I eat, and that's such a nice change!

I can already tell Im going to be in trouble with him. I like him a lot already. My face always hurts from smiling when he leaves. I wish I could post a photo with him, but out of respect for his privacy I won't. I just think he's so cute that I want to show him off. We are the same height...5'9... He is tan with brown/black curly hair, has a goatee, and a slightly crooked smile that I think gives him character.  And when he smiles his whole face lights up.  Originally from Rhode Island (something about a northern accent just does it for me), a little too thin, and a sharp dresser. His sneakers always have to perfectly match his clothes. Anyway, sorry to gush over him, I guess I just didn't realize how much I was missing him the month we weren't communicating.

Imagine how embarrassing it would be if he found my blog with a quick google search?

Anyway, that was pretty much my weekend. I'm not looking forward to returning to work tomorrow. They're going to be so angry when I tell them tomorrow that i will be taking the next TWO Fridays off. 4 day work weeks!

Next weekend I will be in Myrtle Beach, SC with my sugar-momma BFF who decided to take me on vacation (thankful for her!) and the following week I will be running the Electric Run in Charlotte, NC.

Happy Monday ya'll!


  1. Sounds like you had a good weekend... enjoy your short work weeks!

  2. Glad you had a great weekend.. I love you pup, he is so cute

  3. Your pup is sure cute!

    FWIW, I don't post photos of my family online out of respect for their privacy, I mean I CHOOSE to blog but they didn't. You can also change your blog settings so that it can't be found in a google search.
