Monday

So I brought Kristina back to the airport this morning, before work. We had such a fun weekend. Man. Friday night we went out and stayed out verrrrry late and paid the price on Saturday (the boys were staying at their grandparents’.) Saturday we went to eat lunch and then saw Mamma Mia. Can’t get the songs or Colin Firth in a sparkly jumpsuit out of my head. Not that I’d want to…

After the movie, we picked up the boys and went to the north shore to go to Ren’s daughter’s fourth birthday party. It was at this big gymnastics school and it made me want to take lessons again. Like when I was ten. Not that I was ever good. Not with my height or frame. Ha ha! But still, a girl can dream. The boys might have a future in it, though…

Aw!

On Sunday, we went to Ren’s other daughter’s christening. It was pretty cool because Ren’s brother is the pastor (?) of the church she was christened at. They’re Episcopalian, so I don’t know what you call it. Anyway, it was fun. The boys were pretty well behaved. Hey, at least we knew the guy in charge, so we didn’t get in trouble. Heh. I wish I had pictures of Chloe in her dress, it was so beautiful. My only concern now is that one of the boys (not sure which one yet) saw his future wife in a long, frilly white dress. Dang.

Kristina and I also decided that we’re starting a weight loss challenge. This is huge. We are very good at motivating each other to do difficult things. Four years (seven months and 13 days) ago, we quit smoking together, and neither of us has touched a cigarette since. And we weren’t social smokers, either. We were heavily addicted. So if we can do that, we can do this. The fun part is having a reward. When we hit our goal weights, we’re going to plan a weekend trip to NYC. Eeep! That’s a huge exciting reward! Must start saving up, though…

Anyway, expect me to blog about that. When I lost weight last time, before my wedding, I blogged about it a lot. I even had a ticker on the side to count down my pounds lost. I should do that again…
