Party Time

It is the time of year to party, party, party. Skylar attended a birthday party on Saturday and had a blast. It was for one of the little girls in her preschool class. They held it at Sunshine Academy, a local gymnastics studio. It was a great party - they handle everything from entertaining the kids, to refreshments and cleanup. The kids were worn out when it was all over too. They got to jump on trampolines, do flips, walk the balance beam, and swing on a trapeze.

Monday night Kathy and I attended the annual Christmas banquet of one of our clients. It was held at Mike's Place, where as I have mentioned before the food is wonderful. I had a plate full of shrimp, the best green beans I have ever eaten, and Parmesan spinach...and then there was dessert. Kathy, Jenny and I split what had to be the biggest brownie I have ever seen in my life. It was at least 2 inches thick and 4 inches square. It was covered with a delicious chocolate sauce and served with a side of vanilla ice cream. Between the three of us we put a major dent in it but didn't finish it off...not that we couldn't have but it was hard to keep eating it when Jenny's husband kept reminding us how many calories it had in it. I guess I should actually thank Rodney for that but for now I will pretend to be bitter...

So with all of that said, I guess you know how my weight loss/maintenance is going. I haven't mentioned it since before Thanksgiving. It has definitely been on my mind but I guess I thought if I didn't mention it then it wasn't real...since the Wednesday before Thanksgiving I am up 2.5 pounds. I guess I should be happy that it's not more...actually it was more but I have managed to drop a little of it back off. I will be heading back over to Tales from the Scales to report in...
