Catching up

I really didn't fall off the face of the earth. I swear! When I got the last email asking me if I was OK, I figured I should write something.

No word yet from John. I'm really hope that this is the weekend that he moves north and that I'll get to hear from him. It has really sucked not hearing from him this week. No email, no phone calls...nothing.

Other than checking email obsessively every few minutes (what? He might have gotten near a computer!) I have been pretty busy at work. More reports due, a few more grant applications and the usual office work means that I'm fairly brain dead by the time I get home.

I have been doing my best to get on the treadmill at least five times a week. I didn't quite get there this week, but I'm working on it. We're doing low-carb again and it is so much easier this time without all the popcorn and such that John would bring home. The Child has decided that she doesn't mind eating that way so our grocery lists and shopping just got a lot easier.

I'm off to shower and get dressed. We're hitting the post office this morning and then stopping at the store on the way home. I think a friend from Portland will be in town and I'd like to be done with errands so I can go have lunch with her. I haven't told the Child yet, but I think we're going to the mall to get something for John. Just a little something special, though I know she'll drag me through Hot Topic. She's on a campaign for some over-the-knee socks. Shhhh, I'll probably get them for her but only because I was quite proud of her last night. I'll write all that out later, but she was using her head and I'm happy with that.
