My hubby is here for the whole week. What a treat! It's really a drag living in separate states most of the time. We can't find a better solution--my school is in Spokane, and his work is in Portland. He couldn't find work in Spokane in his field that paid more than a barista in Portland. When you have children you support, AND your wife is in graduate school and you are the sole breadwinner, that won't work. So he works in Portland, and comes to Spokane every other week, more or less. I try to come to Portland once a month. I'm putting it off a little bit this month because I have spring break in 2 weeks and a lot of exams until then...it made more sense to just come out there when it was all done. We aren't the only couple separated by a lot of distance in my program. But it is very hard. We are going to get some webcams, and see if maybe we can eat dinner "together" and see each other a little more when we are apart. We have to get creative here, because I am only starting my 3rd month out of 28 months. But for this week, we get to spend a lot of time together, which is great.
This morning I woke up to a nice treat on the scale: a 3 lb loss, which makes a total of 56 pounds lost! I was very excited, needless to say. I'm also another "decade" down...from the 180s to 170s. (I know I've been vague about what my weight actually is on this blog...which I think is fine...but the longer this goes, the less concerned I am about it.) So, hooray for Lap Band, and running, and me.
That's all I got today.
