I miss New York tonight. More specifically, I miss the people who have grown to mean so much to me there…Today would have been weigh-in day if I had been home. Instead, I’ll find a place to weigh-in sometime this weekend so I can gauge my progress throughout the coming week.
Have I mentioned how strange it is being disconnected from the world wide web so much lately? Dad lives in the country…way, way in the country. It’s beautiful, but it’s pretty far from my kind of civilization. 😉 Sorry Dad, just saying. And when I’m around Sean I have a hard time focusing on the internet. But I love my blog and miss my blog friends so I drove about 20 miles to use wi-fi at Panera Bread. I’m enjoying green tea while I listen to Bruce Springsteen, upload photos and comment on blogs.
Sean and I had a great workout last night, and I think he’d agree that we both really needed it. I rocked the elliptical machine while he tore it up on the treadmill. 🙂 After several days without exercise I was reminded of how much I love to sweat. I needed that reminder, and I am ready to get into a regular groove again
I’ve also had the opportunity to visit with friends who are like family, and that’s always one of the best parts of visiting my old home. I enjoyed dinner with Dad and friends Tuesday night. We ate at one of my favorite rib restaurants, and I ate a few ribs.
I had been seriously excited about it, but once I began eating I realized that I no longer think that ribs are worth the points. That’s a great thing to know. 😉 They were good, but they weren’t nearly as good as the company.
Tomorrow will be an exciting day because I’ll get to visit with some of my relatives from Texas. They’re coming up to spend the weekend in Oklahoma, and while I’m not sure what we’re doing yet, I know we’ll enjoy our time together. We always do.
The rest of my evening will be spent at Dad’s house. I plan to introduce him to my favorite show, White Collar. If you haven’t seen it, look for it Tuesday nights on USA. It is a fantastic program, and while I might be a little homesick for New York while watching it, I’m definitely looking forward to seeing last night’s episode.
Now it’s time to head back into the country. I’ll be back on the wire at some point tomorrow so look for me later. Until then, I hope everyone is doing well…
Goodnight from Oklahoma…
