Snow Day! and Weight Watchers Wednesday!

Holy smokes Batman! I got a snow day today! It started snowing yesterday morning, and we came to school anyway. We were dismissed at 12:30 because it was really starting to pile up. Our county is so big, that the Northern end schools get really bad with ice and snow, and then on our end, it's not such a big deal. But, it's nice when we get to leave early and/or have a day off! :D

Emma and I came home around 2:30 (it took sooo long to get home, plus I didn't leave school until 1:45). We changed the guest bedroom sheets that have been sitting in the dryer for 4 days, then I cleaned out the guest bedroom closet-in a fit of looking for my backpack last week, I threw everything in the closet out into the floor of the bedroom. So, when I went in to change the sheets, I couldn't even get to the bed!

Husband's office closed early and he came home too-but he still had to is month end after all (whatever financial world!) I put beef stew in the crock pot that morning, so it was nice and homey and yay! No dinner to cook-with practically nothing to clean up! :D

Husband and I also attempted to make Emma's handprint in this plaster kit we got for Valentime's Day. I'll put a picture up when it's done. We are going to get another one for her feet this weekend. It was so cute and fun, but I soooo wish we would've done this when she was a newborn! Now her hands are so much bigger!

Anyway, today Emma and I slept until 6:30, then we cuddled in bed for awhile. I did some things around the house after breakfast, and she fell asleep until about 10. I took her to the babysitter's house so I could go to the gym and come to work to get some paper work done. I am going to get her in an hour.

Moving along, on the way to the babysitter I decided to go ahead to WW and get weighed-I have never missed a meeting since joining in October, but today I will miss the meeting. I normally go to the gym until 5 on Wednesdays, then pick Emma up and go to WW at 5:30. The gym, babysitter, and WW are within two miles of each other. Since I am getting Emma at 2:30 today, I don't want to come all the way back onto this side of town. I am about 20 minutes away from all the "action." I think I will be okay, because today when I weighed in, I had lost 3.6 lbs!!!!!!!!!

Srsly, can I get a woop woop? :D Now, I am a little worried because I weighed in at 10 in the morning, and usually weigh in at 5:30. So, I haven't had the day to eat and "gain." But, I must have lost something! I am a little nervous for next week because I am sure when I weigh in at night it will be up some-maybe if I work my butt off I can not see a gain!

I have lost a total of 26 pounds, so I got my WW charm. :D Only 11 more pounds to go until I reach my goal weight! My original date to reach goal was in June, but I think I can hit it before then. I am going to work really hard to have it done by May.

How did you all do this week? I haven't seen any WWW posts in my reader today-maybe later? Hope you are having a great week wherever you are!
