I haven't had a Therapy Tuesday for quite awhile since I go only once every three weeks or so these days. I always think I've run out of things to talk about, but she continues to surprise me. Apparently I'm sicker than I thought. Hahahaha.
Last night I had dinner with an old college friend, her husband, and her son whom I have never met. He was such a delight. The time with them was so happy. So very happy. I was grinning all night long from it. More good friends and a new munchkin to love! He was so funny. He wasn't so sure about me at first, but halfway through dinner and after procuring pennies from me to throw in the fountain, he ended up on my lap. I love that. We were talking about my sister's recent engagement and he says to me, "Where's YOUR husband?" And I said, "I don't have one. It's just me and my kitties and lots and lots of good friends." And then later on he asked, "Where's your kids?" And I said, "I don't have any. But I have lots of kids just like you." He seemed satisfied. And I was too. A year ago. Heck, even 4 months ago, those questions would have sent me spiraling into the abyss. I must be getting better, no? And the running leap/hug he gave me when we parted will stay in my mind for a long, long time. Have I mentioned lately how blessed I am?
In other news, I have no idea how exercising MORE, eating LESS and BETTER=weight gain. It is a bit frustrating. I swear the minute the temperature changes around here, my body goes into survival mode and thinks it needs lots of fat to keep it warm. Tonight, we run. I'll show my body who the boss is. I'm the boss of applesauce! It WILL bow to my bidding!
