What a Week!

Whew! What a week it has been! Mike & I started Weight Watchers on Monday. We are doing the Online version because I know we would end up skipping meetings, whenever I’ve done the meetings they talked about things on the site that I had already read, and because Elaine is doing the meetings at her work so she is keeping an eye on us to make sure we are in line. I’m actually moving our weigh-in day to today to sync up with her.

By Tuesday, my stomach was feeling queasy. I blamed it on the increased fiber intake. I was blissfully trying to ignore the fact that Jason had been sick 36 hours earlier and was still home from school. Oh no, it was the fiber. That evening, it shifted to having to admit that oh no, the fiber had nothing to do with it. Fiber doesn’t cause a fever.

Of course, I had a client meeting scheduled for Wednesday. I was not going to risk making anyone else sick though, so we moved it to Thursday and I instead spent Wednesday in bed. Still with a fever.

Thursday, feeling much better, I headed to The Woodlands to meet with my potential client and her mom – and learned while talking that she had found us because she is friends with Dan, the brother of the Emergency Bride, Lauren! Even more ironic, Lauren & I had already made plans to get together for lunch after my meeting! So it ended up feeling like visiting with long lost friends, and they were so fabulously cool. I was even more fascinated by the fact that she does college counseling for high school students – so part of our meeting wandered off into talking about Jason and his college future. I ended up devouring her site last night, reading all the articles she had linked to – things like her work just fascinate me. You can check it out if you’re curious over at Burnt Crimson. (She has all sorts of great posts there.)

Afterwards, I had to head to the iPhone store to have them help me reset my phone, as it had locked up after I got off a call. I did the whole hold down two buttons for a very long time thing about 10 times before I went in, but it didn’t work. Of course, as soon as they did it, it worked fine. *rolling my eyes at my phone* So I was able to hook up with Lauren for lunch after all!

Funny, isn’t it? We don’t memorize phone numbers anymore. So when technology bites us like that, we are lost!

Today is Twisted Yarn’s 4 Year Anniversary sale! (Well, it is tomorrow too.) So Katy & I are going over there to celebrate and get some knitting time. To be honest, I need a few hours away from the computer, away from “work” thinking (although really it never stops it seems when you’re the boss of you), and to just knit and be social. I’ve got my Noro packed, and my sweater that I finished the pieces on and need to stitch together so I need advice on how to do it – I forgot to steam block it last night, so I won’t get to do it while I’m there as planned. Bummer!

If I don’t return, I’ve succumbed to the yarn fumes. You’ll find me among the wool. Most likely Mountain Colors, but there could be some Cascade involved, and maybe some nice Malabregio laceweight too…
