Wonderful Weekend

First, I just want to say thank-you for all the birthday wishes you left me :) I had a really nice birthday & weekend. Friday night, we went to my favorite restaurant, Kalloways & I ended up eating way too much! Afterwards, we went to play cards with some friends & had a great time. Val, my bowling partner & really good friend, gave me this cedar owl box (pictured above) along with this:
It reads: May this bowling angel guide your feet upon the floor and keep your aim so steady that you bowl a perfect score. Hmmm......think she's trying to tell me something? ;) I'll definitely be wearing it to bowling tonight & hope it helps after last week's fiasco! We also went practice bowling this weekend & I decided to give my 15 lb. ball a try again. Jim said that I'm throwing it a lot better now since losing weight, so I'm going to try using it tonight instead of my 14 lb. one.
Saturday, the 4 of us went to Arts & Apples, a really nice craft show in Rochester. I found this gorgeous angel picture at one of the booths & love the saying:
'when tears fall...you are there...holding my hand...when danger is near...you stand before me...I love you so...'
Absolutely perfect!

The weather has truly been beautiful & there's already a touch of fall in the air. Yesterday afternoon, it rained until late in the evening, but we really needed it....our grass needed it! Today, the sun is back out, but it may not even reach 70. I found a bag of old (and I mean OLD!) jeans in the basement & I'm so glad that I kept them because my jeans from last year are literally falling off of me :) I wore a pair on Sunday & they were so baggy in the legs & butt.....boy, does that feel good! Plus I can actually bend over to tie my shoes now without gasping for air! That is the absolute best feeling in the world!

I've got a really busy week ahead.....hitting the gym this afternoon & bowling tonight, bowling tomorrow afternoon & then grocery shopping, dance class Thursday morning & then a doctor's appointment with my OB/GYN for my annual 'check-up' which I haven't had done in a long time (I know, bad me!). My doctor is also going to run tests to see if I'm possibly starting that "M" word :( For the past month or so, I've been waking up in the middle of the night with sweats....I throw all the blankets off of me, then I wake up freezing, then sweating again.....it's a vicious circle! I guess I shouldn't be too surprised if I am, being 46 now. I just hope it doesn't put a damper on my weight loss efforts!

That's all for now.....got a lot to do & little time to do it in. Have a wonderful week!
