Cro and I were both sick all weekend. Not a sniffly sneezy sort of sick. It was an achy sort of sick. We both had very bad headaches, I had very stiff neck muscles and a general weighted feeling around my head and neck. We both slept most of the weekend and it is Monday already. I still don't feel 100% and am sniffly today. Hope Cro is feeling a little better.
My peek at the scale after a week of not looking came to nothing. Still 175. I think I'll avoid the scale again this week though. Work has been ultra-stressful and will continue to be ultra-stressful for the foreseeable future. Not allowing the scale to effect my mood was actually rather nice last week. Plus, checking in at the end of the week feels a little bit like scratching a lottery ticket. No wins last week, but who knows what this week will have in store for me. I'll just keep doing what I know is right and let the results worry about themselves for another week.
I've put in for Thursday and Friday as vacation days this week but I fully expect to be working hard both days on this looming project. At least for those two days I can give the project my full attention without constant distraction like I expect to experience all day today, tomorrow and Wednesday. Such is life in advertising. I seem to be saying that lots recently.
Mom bought a new horse over the weekend. I'm sure we'll go riding again next time I visit (which I hope will be soon and while the nice fall weather is still here). She bought a Rocky Mountain horse this time. (whatever that is). It's a four-year-old mare (girl) and taller than mom's arabian but a bit shorter than her Tennessee Walker. Mom is over the moon happy.
Dad's birthday is today and I'll be giving a call later this morning to wish him happiness and see if he enjoyed the gifts (Cro turned (woodturning with his lathe) a natural-edge bowl for him out of a block from a tree we had cut down. I gifted him lots of war books).
