Too funny. I stepped on the scale this morning and it said 217.4. Okay, great,no gain, no loss, I'm happy. Wasn't until I logged in here to see if I had any new comments on my journal and to read your journals that I realized it was down!!! LOL ... well good for me I guess. Means I am less a slave to the scale, right?

I've remembered to change all the clocks in the house, only thing left is my watch and the clock in the car. Thank goodness cell phones and computers change automatically!!! I hate "fall back" in the fall when the days get so darn short. I love having "longer" days ... so excited for the snow to melt and Spring/Summer to come!!!

Yesterday we ended up driving to CDA to pick up mom. It was a pleasant enough drive. DH wanted to go to Wendy's to eat so we did. I had a baked potato and a salad. It was actually quite good!! I did eat one or two of his fries but was working so hard at eating my salad his bacon cheeseburger didn't bother me at all!!

Today I think will be a stay at home day and work around the house. Laundry awaits me and I seriously need to do some "de-piling." Those of you who end up with things stacked here and there throughout the house know EXACTLY what I'm talking about. I want to do my Pilates DVD too sometime today, and maybe a little jaunt on the elliptical.

I got my hair done Friday and boy does that do a girl some good!!! Had my stylist add some "dark red" to my highlights and it came out very nice. DH likes it (although he is not a fan of red per se) said he liked the contrast of the blonde and darker highlights. SCORE!!! Getting my hair trimmed and highlighted always makes me feel brighter.

I've been taking Mondays off from work except for one Monday a month which is tomorrow!! Oh so sad. I spend the day in another office providing supervision/reflection with their staff. I enjoy the work but will miss that 3 day weekend I've been spoiled with this winter. It's nice because DH has Mondays off. So DH is taking mom to town tomorrow instead of me. She has a hair appointment, needs to stop by the doctor's and get her blood levels tested, and probably other assorted errands. She leaves here for time in California with her sister a week from today. DH is happy to help. He's good that way.

Speaking of DH I just heard the bathroom door upstairs close!! Means he is up and about so I am going to wrap this up so I can chat with him a bit over a cup of coffee. Hoping your weekend is going well ... grateful as always, continually working on being kind to myself and present in each moment. Take Care!!

Congratulations on the loss, you go kiddo! I just whacked at least 4inches off my hair in the bathroom - I was tired of that dead dried scraggly stuff. I was saying the Chanel quote ala 'a woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life' and about halfway through it occurred to me, 'hmmm... did that mean for the better or worse?' but it was too far along to stop. I'm fine with it. I must be growing up.
