Sometimes Life Gets in the Way

Why is it that you can go for months and have absolutely nothing, nada to do and then Bam! It's like life is in overdrive. The last two weeks have been like that. Here's the nutshell.

  • Last week I did my marathon drive to Toronto for my unfill. I can eat again (ok, those Harrods chocolates are all gone) but my weight is staying steady. I've managed to walk at least 2 km per day just going to and from work and some shopping. I plan to work up to 5 km/day by the end of April.
  • Last night a good friend of mine did a makeup makeover for a makeup course she is taking and I was her model. I'll post some pics of beautiful me when she sends them to me. It was fun having someone do my makeup.
  • My daughter is getting married on October 6th, 2012. 18 months of planning. Funny but my first thought when she told me was how fun it will be to have a party. Afterwards I realized I hadn't once thought how I would need to lose 50 pounds. They've picked the venue: the Canadian Museum of Nature here in Ottawa to be married and for the reception. It looks like an old castle and is so cool. We'll be able to open the Dinosaur exhibit for our guests to roam.
  • My DH and I finally booked our cruise this fall. Once Chicago was announced, I had to figure out how to work around that date and we decided to go to Europe for a Riverboat Cruise down the Danube, starting in Prague on October 26th and ending in Budapest. It's billed as a wine cruise. Oh, it's our 30th anniversary.
Has everyone noticed how the days are getting longer. Woo Hoo for sun!
