It's been a few days since I last posted, and a lot of things have happened in the meantime.

First, I walked the Race for the Cure (3.1 miles) with my husband. We met up with a friend of the woman I was walking in celebration of, and had a good chat while walking with the hordes. Hordes, you say? What else do you call 45,000 people? :)

Second, I did not place in the top 50 for Memory Makers Masters. While this is disappointing, I have moved on and am thinking about finishing my entry for the Basic Grey Be Bold contest and starting on an entry for the Creating Keepsakes Hall of Fame contest. Just a year ago, I wouldn't have even thought about entering, but I have decided that contests encourage me to do my best work.

And last, but not least, my paternal grandmother passed away in Virginia. Unfortunately, since I live 3000 miles away, I could not attend the memorial service (yesterday) or the funeral/graveside service (today). I sent email cards to my relatives on that side and a lovely floral basket.

This past weekend, I pretty much took it easy. I slept a lot, got a bit of scrapping done, and just in general relaxed.

Now for today's news!

I lost a .5 lb! Since I didn't post last Monday (my weigh-in day), you don't know that I had gained back a .5 lb from the week before. So, I'm back to where I was 2 weeks ago, but a loss is better than a gain any day.

Here's my current stats:

Starting Weight: 204 lbs
Current Weight: 202 lbs
Goal Weight: 150 lbs
