I'm still alive and kickin'. Haven't been sick but have been reading a lot. That's not the real reason that I haven't blogged. I just haven't been in the mode. Sorry I scared a few of you and probably made a lot of you happy to not have to read my dribble. Just haven't had much to say or advice to give lately.
I went out to eat Friday before last, celebrating a birthday. Ate a little too much of the wrong things (pecan pie, yummmmmmmm) and gained 4 pounds. It's back off now and I'm not panicking like I was that morning that I had gained. I've just sort of given myself a 5 pound leeway in either direction since I've been on maintenance and really wouldn't care if it dropped below that 5 pound lower range I set for myself but definitely don't want to go above the high mark.
Was really pretty here yesterday and I was able to go out and sit on my swing for a while. Looks like today is going to be about the same and then the cold will be hitting some more. Sure hope we don't get that snow storm that is hitting Colorado. This has been a really long winter, not a bad one, just long. And I'm really tired of it. That may be part of the reason I've been absent lately.
I'm also pretty lonesome. No company since December and that has added to the longness of the winter. I know, I know, some of you remember me complaining about all the company I had last spring and summer and are laughing for sure now. But I really didn't mean to jinx it all by complaining and then no body visiting at all. I could hop in the car and go to visit some family that's only about 4 1/2 hours away but it just seems like too much of a hassle for me to do that with my dogs. They are welcome at the families homes but it is a hassle to have to take them out to potty on a leash all the time and I found out about a year ago that I can't trust them not to run off. I got a real scare when they disappeared on me and only the little girl came home. Luckily a neighbor found my little boy and called where I was staying to see if they knew who he belonged to. Since then I have gotten name tags with my phone numbers on them but it is still a hassle that I just don't want right now. They aren't happy being boarded and it just adds to my stress when I have to do that. So I guess I'll just stay home and hope someone comes to visit soon.
I'm into the Jesse Stone books by Robert B. Parker and they are really good. I discovered them when watching a Jesse Stone (starring Tom Seleck) movie and noticed that it was adapted from a book. There are 7 of them and I went on Amazon and order all of them. The really nice thing about reading the books now that I've seen one of the movies is that I can picture Jesse as Tom. Whew, and that is a nice picture!!!
Have a nice weekend!!
