So how are we spending our time?
Well, I am unsuccessfully doing a lot of yardwork. And really upping the chance that I'll wind up with some kind of melanoma later in life. [I know I shouldn't joke about that because my church friend some seven years my junior had surgery to remove a larger section in her neck over a year ago.] Still, fat that is tan looks better than fat that is white.
Speaking of....I am four weeks in on Weight Watchers. I know I made big vows to myself last summer, but serious weight loss takes serious time and planning until it becomes your new way of living and thinking. So this was the best time. And it's working. Down 12 pounds! That's almost a sack of dog food! I had to pick one of those up at Wally World today, and it was kinda neat to think....I'm not carrying this around on my knees anymore. On the scale, 12 pounds doesn't look like a lot compared to my long range goal of 100 total pounds. But when you pick up an extra 12 or 15 pounds in the grocery store and tote it around for ten minutes trying to find the other person who walked off with the FREAKING BUGGY...sorry....well, it is a nice tactile motivation. Maybe in a couple more months, I'll have lost a Sam'sClub size bag of dog food.
The other thing we're doing is watching the WorldCup. I like soccer. I've never played, but the rules don't seem too complicated. We're watching our DVR of the USA/Algeria game that put the US in the sweet 16.
Sure, we know how it ends. But anything is a good distraction from the happy anxiety of waiting for that phone call.
