Guess what? My weight on the scale is actually down! It’s showing me as being down 6 lbs from my most recent highest. But officially, I’m only down 2.7. But I’ll take it! I’m excited to see what the scale says on Saturday. I was perfectly on plan Friday. Wasn’t perfectly on plan Saturday, but didn’t do TOO bad and did a lot of walking at the renaissance festival. Then was perfectly on plan yesterday and so far so good today! I’m going out tonight and I even have my planned drinking tracked in advance in my tracker. Go me! And go all of you for your fantastic support!
I’ve now been to Ren Fest twice this year. The first time, even though it ended up raining on us and becoming a muddy mess, was much more fun because there weren’t nearly as many people there. This time, the weather was gorgeous, but there were so many freaking people, it was hard to have too much fun. Felt like I was constantly bumping into people.
The first time around, I got my hair braided again like I did last year (but in a different style). This style was called The Athena:
On this second trip, I ended up getting my henna tattoo. This was it shortly after it was done:
So those were fun. I also bought a hand-crocheted snood!
Fun stuff. Or at least I think so.
In other unrelated news, my mom called me today at work to let me know that next week, the District Attorney’s office has set an appointment for us to come in and review all of the case materials from when my brother was killed. We will be able to read all statements, all reports, everything that the driver said, etc. They will also let us review photos, but am not sure we’ll go that far. Depends on if we think we can handle it. But it will be nice to hopefully have a better understanding of what exactly happened that night (or at least what they think happened that night). It’s so hard to believe that it will be 9 years in February. I still miss him tremendously. So hopefully, my supervisor will work with me on letting me have the time off.
I’ll keep you all posted. Hope your week has gotten off to a good start!
