stuck in chicago

Stuck in Chicago last night - long story, too tired to argue about it ... just the reality of traveling. I will however not be flying United any time soon. So here I am back at it and waiting for my morning flight to Portland. Just so I can get up at 4 am tomorrow to do it all over again. At least tomorrow will be for vacation, sitting in the sun by a pool or on the beach. Can't wait.
Miss my hubby and furbabies....

Scrap Etc event was fantastic - Stacy did an awesome job on both of her new classes. And we held our first ever Glimpses reception. It was a little tight in the store for all of the students that downloaded the class but the idea behind the reception was to share your album and meet fellow Glimpses students. We had a great time and always wish we could spend more time with each person.

Daily Grind: Saturday and Sunday I tried desperately to do better. I will go to the WW meeting tonight and see the results of the strawberry cake.

Scrap Etc!

We are in Birmingham, Alabama for the Scrap Etc. event! Hope to see some of you here - please say "hey". What an incredible line up of teachers and a chance to spend some time with Allison Tyler Jones and Robin Johnson. Good times! The Scrap Etc store is amazing - decorated and filled with all the latest and greatest. Monique, Jeremiah and their team have been amazing. Kellie has been kind enough to take us around to run all of our pre-show errands. Plus I have to mention that the Wynfrey hotel is conected to the Riverchase Galleria mall?

Off topic...I noticed while traveling here that the airport was particularly must be the start of spring break. Which makes for some interesting travel and people watching. One bit of advice if you are traveling: don't bring a carry on that weighs more than you. It's really not a good idea, especially if you have to "swim up stream" on the airplane to check your bag.

Daily Grind: Weighed in for the first time on Monday - I am back at my starting weight seven years ago. How depressing. But I am going to get back on the wagon and start counting my points...because that is what works for me. Plus the Weight Watchers online has improved so much!!!! Both Stacy and I did go running last night - tonight it's just not going to happen. It should have, since I didn't do very well on my points. As you can see, given the picture in this post. But it was the most enjoyable strawberry cake from a bakery that is upstairs from Scrap Etc. Must do much better tomorrow.
