My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)


Back to the Grind

Happy Monday to you all! I hope the weekend was fabulous for you. I had a great time!
On Friday, I had a half day at work, so I left at 11 am, and dawdled around a bit. I headed over to John's around 2:30 or so, and we had a late lunch... vietnamese food, delish! Then we went to visit Michelle, one of my dear friends who is also a RNY patient. She had an outpatient surgery on Friday, so we wanted to check up on her. She was fairly alert, or at least I thought so! On Sunday when I talked to her, she said that she heard I came over... but she talked to me the whole time. hahaha
Saturday, John and I went to his cousin's house for a BBQ. One of his cousins is going to Afghanistan, so his family had a get together. It was really nice to meet more of his family. :) Then, we headed out to Austin for Spamalot. Wow, it was soooo freakin funny! I thoroughly enjoyed it, and it was worth the 2.5 hour drive! :-) Next time we may make a weekend of the Austin thing, but this time around we just had too much going on.
Sunday was a lazy day. I had a bit of a headache most of the day and didn't feel like doing much of anything except lounging around. It was nice being lazy though. I don't let myself do that too often!
This week, I have another half day on Friday, so i'm trying to get my extra 4 hours in today and Wednesday. I have to leave early on Tuesday to take my mom to the doctor, and I want to be done with the extra time early this week so I'm not busting my butt later in the week.

I weighed on John's scale yesterday and I was at 154.4. Woo hoo! If I make it to the 140s, I will just freak! I'm fine where I'm at now, but you all know how obsessive I am! hahah

Well, I need to get back to work and catch up on my blog reading! :)

Hugs to you all! I'll be writing again soon... I'm actually making this a habit! haha

Just for the record, I love your new blogging habit! It's great to hear that many wonderful things that are happening. Now you've got me wanting to find out when "Spamalot" is coming to a theater near me!

Thanks for the update! Have a wonderful day!
