I was all ready to write something here earlier this afternoon when Ken got home and completely interrupted me. We ended up going out looking at computer desks (I need a new one), then to dinner (even though I was planning on cooking), then looking at more computer desks. There's a whole lotta shit out there. We didn't find one that i liked, so we gave up and came home. Then Ken went searching online and found a couple for me to check out. IKEA has a few that I like. It's too bad we live about three hours from the closest store. Shipping was twice as much as the desk, so we'll find a day for a road trip and go fetch one.
We're going to my mom's house for Thanksgiving. I don't really want to... I just want to lay around at home. My brother is coming down from Canada, so I felt obligated to say "yes." Until now. He's canceled. Am I disappointed? Yes. Am I surprised? No. He says he can't get off of work. I don't know if I believe it or not. He's known for making plans to come down and then canceling. Maybe this will help me get out of there a little earlier now. I've got a new computer coming (hopefully Wednesday) and I want to play with that.
I haven't posted as many pictures lately as I would like. There are three recent pictures in this post. One is of my friend Melanie from Texas who was here a couple of weeks ago, with me, out at dinner. I love Mel. She's so much damn fun. I'm so glad she was in town. There's another picture of me with the cats. They decided they needed to sleep and I was the bed for them. This picture was from a couple of days before I was talking about them sleeping on me (the last post?). They're so fucking cute, I can't stand it. Ollie's facing the camera, Lucy is not. The third picture is of Ollie. It came out really well. He's a good boy.
Since it's Sunday, here's my obligatory mention of my weight. I was 215 this morning, which is a pound higher than last Sunday but still three pounds lighter than two Sundays ago. I'm a little bummed, but I really have no cause to be. I lost 4 pounds last week. That in itself is amazing this far into the diet. I should be losing a pound a week max. I'm still doing extremely well. I want to hit 213 by the end of the year, which is very possible. I'd like to be there now, but that's not going to happen. I just need to get through the holidays without losing focus. I did it last year, I just hope I can keep it up.
I've got four minutes until the Amazing Race starts. Good a time as any to end this.
