Jetsetting Again!

Sorry for the blog silence, I've had a very  rough week.  It all started last Tuesday (the 1st), with my car needing $700 in work!  Ouch, but if it keeps the car on the road another 6+ months it'll be worth it.  Then this past Monday my car door was frozen, Todd broke the driver's side door handle.  Sigh.  The worst of all, was this Tuesday.  I took my 15 year old cat Cuddles into the vet to have a sore on his front leg checked out.  It was heartbreaking, but I had to have him put down.  There was an infection and several other issues.  I cried and cried and cried!  That was the hardest thing I've ever had to do.  I've caught myself doing some emotional eating at times.  Then at times I'm not eating until my stomach growls.  Food has been weird and exercise scarce.  The result of this is being up 1 lb this week.  I guess I can consider that a victory of sorts seeing as I  could of just gone overboard.

I'm doing it again, hopping on a plane tomorrow morning to go and visit my friend inin Arizona!!! After the week I had,I need a vacation and some SUN! I'm looking forward to seeing Kathy, heading up to Phoenix(ish) to see my good friend Judie who is down there on vacation right now. There's a little trip to The Attic (needlework store) planned as well! Can't wait for some retail therapy!

Don't worry, there will be lots of pictures when I get back!

Oh yeah did I mention that next weekend is the annual Knowledge and Needles March retreat! So I'll be coming home on Thursday and hopping in the car Friday to go stitch with my friends! What a whirlwind.
Stitch. Eat. Sleep.

I think you did amazing this week with your weight considering what you've had to deal with. I'm fighting to hang on by my fingernails and not binge this weekend. I overrate last night as we had a takeaway for dinner, but didn't let it become a binge, and today is a new day.
Have a wonderful trip.

Considering what you were dealing with this week, I think up a pound is nothing to be worried about. You did well!

Have fun in Arizona! It sounds like you're going to have a busy week!

Dani, I am so sorry about Cuddles. I can't imagine how painful that must have been for you. When I lost my golden Mandy last October it was horrible. I am glad that you will have another trip to take your mind off of things. That will help, I think. Have a safe trip and a great time.
