Sweet Summer...

As I was driving home from work today, I glanced at the bank's digital clock and read: 100 degrees. The sun is blazing, there is very little breeze and the humidity is so thick, it feels like you just stepped into a sauna.

Put the sizzling heat aside, all I want to do is play. I want to pay outside: run through a sprinkler, roast marshmallows over a camp fire or break out the badminton set.

You see, my time in the country is drawing to a close. My last week or so as a resident of my parent's home.

It's both a freeing situation and a bitter sweet one.

I am thrilled to have my own space soon, but one thing I will truly miss - the stars at night, the vast expanse of trees and the absolute quiet at twilight.

My first official week on Weight Watcher is drawing to a close. I went ahead and weighed myself a day early - and thus far, I am down 3 pounds from Sunday's weigh in. No bad at all. I did not implement exercise yet, but it's next. :-)

Work is super busy - with the International Taste of Soul tomorrow afternoon. I spent most of the morning tying up loose ends. I think the event will be very successful. Thing is, I invited just about everyone I know on FB that lives in the area, and every time I see the decline, I get a little disappointed. Not because they are not coming and know me, more so for the fact that perhaps the reasoning of some. Maybe it's money, maybe it's the idea of attending fundraising events (outside of soft ball, church and cheer leading - some families in middle Georgia are NEVER exposed to anything cultural,) or maybe it's just the uncertainty of the unknown. Whatever the case, a little twinge of disappointment enters.

Over all, life is going okay. Things are still so cold between me and the other - but I'm done fighting for it all. I am just taking it one day at a time and we will see where that leads. I am learning see ME as enough and anything that happens that is good out side of that, well.. that will be fine too.

I hope you are each having a wonderful weekend. :-)
