Hi all!

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!

    Congratulations on getting back on the WW wagon, and the loss!

    I love the photos! Your hair is gorgeous, and I especially like the snood. I didn’t know what they were called!

    oh wow Pam. just wow! Way to go on your weight loss, hard work and planning! But really I’m just wow-ing over the fact that you get to read all those things involving your brother this many years later. Yes, I can totally imagine how that’d feel about not being sure if you want to see ALL of the pictures and such. It’s going to be a weird relief, a strange closure in some regards and undoubtedly difficult. I’ll be thinking of you. I hope it’s overall a huge help and comfort in some way. My brother’s death/accident happened on the other side of the world in Italy and EVERYthing ofcourse was written in Italian. There weren’t any documents available to us because he was in the Army and well, there just aren’t any documents made availble to us. But there was a newspaper clipping and we found a local priest here who could read Italian so he translated it for us but it was pretty generic. It’s awesome you can have all of that to look at and read!!! And I agree with Ron – you’re on a roll! Don’t lose momentum…we’re all fighting this together. I’m still trying so hard with a new lifestyle of eating and middle-aged stuff fighting me. UGH. UGH. UGH! I lost my mojo last week but I think I’m getting back into it. Trying really really hard to pick up the weights again. Everybody have a great productive week so next week we can look back on this one and smile and be proud of ourselves! 😀
