Sorry I've been out of touch. I got involved in a little home improvement project which consumed quite a bit of my time. Monday evening, Dear Hubby was out of town on business. I don't sleep well when he's away, so the pass the time, I got the grand idea to repaint the master bedroom - for the 3rd time in 6 years. It took two days. I still have some minor touch ups to do, but it looks pretty good.

I've also been rushing around trying to finish all the errands I have to run while I only have one boy with me (Son #3). The older boys' last day of school is tomorrow! And it's a half day. Any other errands I run this summer will require my traveling in a pack of four. :-)

Today, Son #3 and I took "Steve" (our minivan) to the dealership for its 12K mile maintenance. Fortunately we got there early enough and therefore didn't have to wait long. A quick stop at Weight Watchers to weigh in and we were on our way. (With three kids, I haven't thought about how or whether I'll be able to attend any meetings over the summer.)

This was the Very Last Mom & Son#3 Day - just the two of us. Oh, I'm sure we'll have others, but this is the last regular one before the brothers get out of school. Come autumn, Son #3 will head off to school too. I asked him how he wanted to spend his day. Get this: he wanted to go to Barnes & Noble to play with the Thomas the Tank Engine trains they have set up in the kids' section. Afterwards, he wanted go to the coffee shop inside Barnes & Noble for a chocolate milk with whipped cream and a giant chocolate chip cookie. Iced Mocha for me. Of all the things he could've picked (Chuck E Cheese, McDonald's PlayLand, a movie), he picks chocolate. That's my boy!

You are doing so great with your weight loss. Way to go. I'm glad you had a good day with your son...what a way to bond - chocolate knows no age limits.

Sue said...

A boy after my own heart - chocolate!

And hooray for your weight loss!

Lala's world said...

congrats on the weight loss, you are doing really well!

I just noticed some big mistakes our painters did.....guess the spring sun is brighter...wonder if they come back after 5 months to fix it??

nise', I'm embarrassed to admit that I haven't finished a book in ages! I'm in the process of reading 8 or 9. (darn multitasking!) I'll check it out though - sounds like fun - and I'll let you know whether I can play along.

Thanks, nadine for the kind words. The weighloss is starting to feel more like habit than diet, which I guess is the point. And you're right about chocolate!

Sue, my kids look nothing like me but it's nice to know that at least one of them has inherited one of my traits! LOL

Thanks for the encouragement, john and shionge!

Lala, I doubt it, but it might not hurt to ask. I'm a DIYer (do it yourselfer), but I still notice little spots here and there where the coverage isn't quite even. You're 100% correct about the lighting/sun.
