Boy, its been a long, hard week. I suppose the fist week back to work after a nice long holiday always is. My mild cold stayed that way all week long, it didn't get any worse but it sure lowered my defences so to speak. I was tired all week and between being tired and sick I really had to push myself to work out. I also had to fight my cravings tooth and nail! I don't think I've had such a hard time with cravings in months. Of course I wanted all the things that aren't the best for a girl on Weight Watchers. If there hadn't been a snow storm on Wednesday I most surely would of brought a VERY big pizza home from my favourite place which is just down the street from work. One night, I even dreamt of having a Big Mac! I've not been near the Golden Arches in almost a year now. One thing I do know, I ate a lot more chocolate than I normally will in a week (can you believe I can give up alcohol but not chocolate???).
I've not stitched much at all this week and I really need to get moving with my exchange piece! So that doesn't help matters at all. Also the fact that I'm just not into it! At least I'll get a nice afternoon of stitching in tomorrow... Kathy is coming for a visit! Yay! I can't wait. I've not seen Kathy since October and after tomorrow I won't be seeing her again until at least May.
Speaking of friends I can now also look forward to next weekend! I'm going to be heading down to Brighton after work on Friday (weather permitting of course) to visit with Ann and Dan. Ann has asked me to run the shop... Knowledge and Needles on Saturday (so ignore the notice on her webpage that she's closed)! How fun! Hopefully a customer or two will pop in so I can try my skills at needlework shop employee.
Finally, no post is complete without a picture right? So here's another older Photo Hunt. Photo Hunt #136 - Ruin(ed)
This is the ruin (ha ha see how I interpret this?) of Yuma Prison in Arizona. In honour of Kathy's visit since this is where she spends her winters.
