I'm still feeling disinclined to blog but wanted to check in--in case anyone actually still reads my blog--and say that I'm alive and things are going fine.

MM and I spent Thanksgiving with my dad and stepmom in New Mexico. We all got along fine, and our travel was uneventful. Last Saturday was our first wedding anniversary. MM sent me a beautiful mixed bouquet of flowers to commemorate the occasion, and he was smart enough to send it several days early so that I could enjoy the flowers before leaving town. Hard to believe we have already been married a year!

I gained some weight over the weekend, but I'm not surprised. I'm at the point in my cycle where I'd normally retain water, in addition to flying and eating less healthfully than usual. I predict that by next week, the scale will be back to the 213-214 range without much real effort on my part.

Today it's back to work after four days off. I could've used another four. I think I need to start looking in earnest for another lawyering gig.

And on that note, I need to get crackin' on some billable work. Ugh.

I'm still here reading!

I gained 8 pounds in the last week. EIGHT?!?! I am guessing that between my period, eating two Thanksgiving dinners and all the salt and crap, most of that will be off by next weigh-in. Hopefully!

I'm glad to hear you are alive and doing fine.

Happy Anniversary! It takes so much work not to gain weight this time of year. Do the best you can over the holidays.

I don't miss the daily grind of the office and struggling to make those billable hours. Good luck.

I'm still reading too - I just need to catch up after a few hectic weeks (traveling and crappy sick time). I'm so sorry I missed your anniversary and I just wanted to say I hope you had a happy day!
