No Irene up here. A little wind yesterday, and that was it. Which was totally expected – JJ & the rest of the weathermen had us well assured that we wouldn’t see so much as a sprinkle of rain.
But I still feel a little sad that we didn’t get to take part in the hype. I realize how bad that sounds – especially coming from me, the child who freaks out over a mild thunderstorm or a mild tornado watch. The child who thought she was going to die in a flood just a few short months ago.
And I’m sure the people who were evacuated from their homes along the East Coast and had severe damage due to the high winds and rain are probably not impressed that I was wishing we’d get just a smidge of their catastrophe. Just enough to make me feel like I was in the Hurricane Irene Club.
Yeah. It’s wrong. Very wrong. I hope those of you who were in the midst of it are safe & sound.
So. Good news. I lost 3.8 lbs in the past week. Which isn’t quite what I was hoping for, but I guess it’s better than nothing. I had visions of drastic weight loss in the first week. Like, 10 lbs. Something really awesome like that. I guess that wouldn’t have been healthy, though. BUT…It’s a start, right? And I’m starting to feel much better, even though I think my ankles are the only part of my body that looks skinnier. And that could just be a delusion, I’m not sure.
Alrighty, so I’ve got a busy day ahead and I’ve got something cooked up for the next few weeks – a four-part series that I’m really excited about. So that’s what I’m working on, and if all goes well, you’ll get to see the first installment of this project tomorrow. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, go enter my GIVEAWAY…only a few days left!!
