Last Weekend of Freedom!!

Summer is over. Back to school on Monday. As usual, I am ready!!! I have missed all of my work frans and am ready to get back into my routine!

This past Wednesday I got my hair colored. As my stylist was blow-drying my hair she asked, "The school doesn't have a policy against having 'different' colored hair?" I almost died. I didn't have my glasses on so I hadn't seen the color yet. Fortunately, I don't think I look too strange!

I pampered myself today and got my nails done. After spending all summer taking care of my grandparents I had a serious case of dish-pan hands. I also bought some new make up since my days of freedom are over. Clothes. Hair. Makeup. After a little weight loss it's amazing how much more I care about my appearance. I have never been a sloppy person, but now I take pride in the way I look.

On the band front...I'm unofficially @ 39 pounds down - according to my scale. I go for my second fill on Monday so we will see if their scales agree with mine. I have had some serious restriction the past few days - I blame it on TOM - so I will go in Monday afternoon....I don't know what to expect with this second fill. The first time I got 4 cc's...I don't know how aggressive he will be this time.

I am currently in the middle of some serious house cleaning. Hopefully, if I start the school year with a clean house I can keep it up. I may have to go back to FLYLADY for some inspiration!!


  1. upload hair pics later. i bet it looks GREAT. i too start back to school on monday. i had to move rooms this year and still have an entire wall to deal with...ugh. wall aside..i am excited to get back to work. :) and congrats on the nearly 40lbs. wow!

  2. I have the same problem @ work. I moved rooms a few days before we got out for summer - then we got a new principal and I was moved BACK!!! I have a classroom full of boxes to deal with this week...I think I will just bring my pillow and blanket and move in!!!
