207.8 (yea!)

I am having a very hard time focusing at work lately. . . mostly because MM and I have so many things to do related to the new house and the upcoming move that my focus has been on that much more than on any of the tasks that my firm (& our clients) pay me to perform. ;-)

One brief side note about the move: it is so nice to be in a relationship with someone who is competent, reliable, and not a procrastinator! With my ex, I usually just made all plans myself; if I didn't, he would put it off indefinitely or "forget" to do it. MM is a much more take-charge kind of person: of his own accord, he decided to take this morning off from work in order to arrange movers, a home inspection, utilities, etc., for the move. I would be even more stressed out if not for his taking responsibility for this stuff!

My friend KH had her baby girl yesterday; Mom and baby are both doing well. I babysat her not-quite-13-month-old son in the morning before his nanny arrived and again after work until her husband came home. Her son is terribly cute, and although I was (& still am) tired, I enjoyed watching him and was glad I could help them out.

Tomorrow I fly to see my dad for the weekend. I'm looking forward to it! I'm sure I will miss MM, but it'll be good to see Dad and to get away for a few days.

Weight Watchers is going well. I didn't really plan yesterday's meals, due to rushing out of the house just after 6 a.m. and rushing back to KH's after work, but was still able to stay Core-compliant, with the exception of just a few low-point foods (lowfat milk instead of skim, a slice of whole wheat bread). I also made it to the gym on Sunday, Monday, & Tuesday this week, so it's been a pretty good week so far.

Being at my dad's could be a bit of a challenge eating-wise. He is a saboteur, although he is often telling me how good it is for me to diet and lose weight. I know we will be going out for Mexican food on Friday night, so I can handle that: I will just order chicken fajitas and whole black beans and skip the tortillas. (That will likely provoke comment, but I can deal with it.) It's the eating at his house, where I have less control over food choices, that may be problematic.

Gotta get back to finishing up a research project and drafting some motions in limine for an upcoming trial. Oh joy! ;-)

Ah, nothing like a move to stress you out.

BTW, I love your blog layout. I used this one and people ridiculed me for it. I always thought it was perfect for blogging: clean, simple and uncomplicated. Easy to read.
