So glad none of you minded me writing about anything – or nothing, however you want to think of it. Mollie is home until Tuesday, doing want any wild college student does on their time off – kitting a scarf. Some how the allure of drinking and partying as a college kid has alluded her (thank God). She conned me into buying her yarn with the promise that we’d share the scarf. I imagine I’ll get to have it in the summer.
Meanwhile I woke this morning to a wonderful gift from my husband. I was planning on writing about it and showing you pictures, but he insist it’s not finished and I have to wait until he has it all done before I can post a picture. No, it is not a paddle or anything spanking related. On the contrary, I’m sure he sees it as something I can use to keep from getting spanked. It is something I’d asked for, but I had no idea he’d really make me one and quite quickly too. Mollie found it somewhat ridiculous and simple rolled her eyes. Hopefully I'll be able to show it to you soon.
On to weightier matters, pun intended, I didn’t lose last week. I was up .2, which is nothing since our scales are so screwy. But I know I didn’t lose and I was pretty much trying this week. I exercised several time. Sorta watched what I ate. I suppose I wasn’t exactly perfect. Nick and I had discussed the post I put up last week about him not emailing or saying anything to me Friday. Can you believe he try to put the blame on ME! He mentioned that I had not bothered to send him an email during the week as he’s asked/told me to. Well that wasn’t my fault – I forgot! Oh well, you know how men are (okay, maybe it was a little my fault.)
He did send an email this week after he saw I’d gone up ever so slightly. It began:
You just can't stay out of trouble! Where's the cane?
For what ever reason that made me smile. Not the cane part – wherever that darn thing is now. But it made me smile anyway. He made several suggestions and made a couple of rules for the week – which I will follow. And then I thought of an excellent incentive for losing and I send Nick the following email.
I'll be home all next week. Harder or easier to lose? If I lose at home this week can I retire? School might me making me fat, you never know.
Unfortunately he didn’t go for it writing back:
Sounds like a set-up, you wouldn't eat all week.
Oh well, it was worth a try.
I hope everyone is having a lovely Easter. I love having my girl home. I am feeling relaxed and happy about the coming week. Nick is off and we’ll have our empty nest back after Tuesday. I’m looking forward to getting some writing done. I feel like if I could ever get the first chapter of the book ‘right’ the rest would flow – who knows, but I’m giving it a try!
