I had a very good week last week. It all started with the return of my best friend.
Then, I went out for beer and burgers on Thursday night with a girlfriend. It was a date set-up gone awry. Why is it that people think when you are single that you should be set up with anybody else who happens to be single?
I have standards!
Saturday morning, I got up and ran 9 miles. It was a very exhilarating day for a run. It was cool, but not cold (40 degrees). The trees are beautiful with the changing leaves, and there was a slight breeze.
I got back from my run and went later to my company's Christmas party for the managers. Yes, we already had our Christmas party. The party was a lot of fun. Dinner, karaoke, and then 2 comedians had been hired as our entertainment. I hadn't laughed so hard in so long! They were fantastic. Even the people who weren't drinking thought so!
After that we dispersed and started the gambling. The party took place at the Casino Aztar hotel, adjacent to the casino boat. Not being much of a gambler (ever since my ex gambled away so many thousands), I gave away the $5 that we were given for gambling and went home.
Sunday, I took my daughter to get the other side of her lip pierced. I can't believe my daughter is one of *those* freaks who has 2 lip piercings. It really doesn't look so bad. I'll have to post a picture later. I figure, she gets good grades, she doesn't get in any trouble, she is very well behaved and always has been... if she wants to have a couple of piercings, I'm not going to make a big deal of it. She knows that when she gets older and wants to get a "real" job, she will want to let them grow back.
So, I'm back at it now. Of the 30 lbs that I had gained, I've now lost 6 of them. I may have dropped out of Viv's challenge, but I'm back stronger than ever now...
