even though i haven't been focusing on losing weight lately, the scale says i have (-1.2 pounds) so that's promising news... being out-of-town for the weekend always throws me for a loop but i guess i did better than i thought... my friend had a kitchen full of food, ranging everywhere from the healthy to the unhealthy, so it was easy to grab a handful of jellybeans or peanut M&M's everytime i passed the kitchen... she has lost an incredibly amount of weight and looks amazing, using no specific plan or exercise routine - she just made herself a priority and got healthy... as we all know, it's easy to put everyTHING and everyONE ahead of yourself so i am so proud that she made this change... her mom has also lost a lot of weight so it's definitely catching... :o)

my reunion/bridal shower weekend was good, though the weather wasn't the best, at least i got to spend some time w/my old roommate, her 11-year old daughter, and meet her fiance... the reunion wasn't much of anything - only 8 people from the class of '93 showed up which is pretty pathetic... we all walked around the small campus, checked out the remodeled dorm, fitness center, and classrooms - funny how things improve AFTER you leave... nikki and i also got to visit with our favorite nun, sister ave, who taught 2D design our freshman year... she was ecstatic to see us and had fun showing us off around the home, "look who came to see me" she kept saying - that alone was worth the trip back to scranton... we also drove by our old apartment and passed-by many establishments (bars) that were favorites when we had been in school... ;o)

sunday was the bridal shower - i had no idea how things were going to work out since neither her fiance or i knew the real plan for getting her there... but luckily, after having a late breakfast at a real PA diner - her mom convinced her to stop by a local hotel/bar for a drink... she was totally surprised and shocked so i'm glad it all worked out... it was also THE fastest shower i've been too - might've been 1.5 hours long including lunch! not that i'm complaining but still, that's a record! :o)

so that was my weekend and i can't tell you HOW much i'm looking forward to being in town this weekend and not having any plans... eric and i had talked about doing 'rolling thunder' in DC but he said we had to sign-up and he'd rather be out of the city and away from all the traffic... so we're planning on packing a nice lunch on sunday and hitting the country roads - can't ask more than that...

work has been quiet but i'm still trying to finish some last-minute conference stuff... we had a meeting yesterday and my boss was like, "i'm so beyond this meeting, i don't even want to think about it anymore"... can't argue with her on that! we're taking my coworker out today for lunch since her last day is friday - i'm really going to miss her and am NOT looking forward to how things are going to be when she's gone... being the other designer isn't as experienced, i feel i will be taking over more stuff and having to be teacher for a while - which is fine but she's very slow... such is life... i need to update my website/portfolio and start looking for a job again - i'm tired of things here...

happy hump day...
