I was so excited to wake up on Saturday to see how Jen had done - Jen@priorfatgirl.com, then I read her post and was saddened to find out about her Mom who was tragically killed in an auto accident. How tragic and sad, and how much does it make you realize that you should always tell your family you love them as you never know what can happen. My heart goes out to Jen and her family. I don't "know" Jen other than through the blogging world and she was actually my inspiration to start blogging my journey after I read one of her blogs that I had run across. I am keeping her family in my prayers as my heart goes out to them.
---Other than my sadness from Jen's blog my weekend was pretty good. On Friday night I went to my friends house and hung out for awhile, it is alwasy nice to get away from the house as it gives me the chance to breathe sometimes. My house can get so busy and crazy it is always nice to have an out and be able to have some fun with friends. Saturday was a blast, I went to my Dad's work and took the family. It is always fun to go since we get to see where works and they feed you lunch. You do have to watch what they feed you though. I had a hamburger minus the bun and a few chips...they didn't really have any "good salad" so I skipped the pasta and the potato that they did have. I did break down this weekend and got some coffee from my favorite coffee shop "Monkey Brew" but I didn't have much else that day so it was not so bad, it was a fun time on Saturday and then after my cousin came over and took the kids swimming so that was nice too! Sunday was the long awaited family reunion - we only have them once every 2 years, so it was nice to see the family. I am glad it is over though, it was busy and we were in charge. I did have some yummy chicken and tons of fruit...there were plenty of fruit bowls. It was a good time, I hung out with some of my favorite cousins and we had so much to chat about. We left after my Uncle started shouting at the kids. He can be such a Jerk - I have known this since I was 13 years old and he decided to call me a "bitch".... Hello!!! I was 13 years old who does that kind of thing? It's okay I had to announce a few things at the reunion and made sure I stood right behind him and shouted....it was pretty funny! I know it sounds mean, but sometimes you got to do what you go to do. I get to weigh in tonight! I will let everyone know how it goes...hopefully it will go good.... I can't wait to find out if I have done enough! Hugs!
