Back to normal - hopefully!

Finally my husband is coming home today! He made his flights so far and I should be picking him up shortly after 8:30 tonight. I was hoping to go in and wait for him but I'm still working on healing these ankles so it will probably be a curbside pickup.

I was all excited because I took his huge pile of shirts to be ironed to the cleaners to have them pressed (I'm a great wife but I don't iron) and then I realized what a dork I was to be excited about surprising my husband with a weeks worth of already ironed shirts. I guess I'm trying to do everything I can to help with his transition back to normal life. I'm sure he will be missing his dad and worrying about his mom on her own but I'm going to do everything I can to help him through it all.

We both realized that we are still useless when we're apart even after 4 years of marriage. Since we commuted between Scotland and Atlanta for over a year we spent a lot of time apart and it's just as hard now as it was then, if not more so! Sometimes I'm amazed at how much he loves me. I've always loved people but never had so much in return.

Back to normal also means back to the gym, meal planning and points counting. I'll have to wait for the weekend to do a big shop and I'm just praying my ankles are better next week. Time to get back on track.

I still want to lose 100 pounds by 40 which is in 13 months. I feel like this blog is really helping with my attitude towards weight loss. My extra motivation is that I HAVE to do the 3-Day next year. I missed being involved so much this year. How awesome would it be to not lug around an extra 100 lbs. for 60 miles!

    you done it once
    you can do it again

  2. lol I'm with you on that, I draw the line at ironing. I get obsessive when I do it and if there is one lil wrinkle left, it'll drive me nuts.

    I hope your ankles start feeling like normal again soon. :(

  3. Glad to hear you are feeling better. I agree that blogging helps with weight loss - the encouragement is incredible!

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope your ankles continue to improve!
