Weekend Update

It's actually an appropriate title, since I'm wearing my glasses that make me look a little like Tina Fey (I love, love, loved the audio version of Bossypants, by the way).  I thought I'd catch you up on a few recent storylines.

My eye doctor said that I would know my corneal ulcer was healing when my eye became less sensitive to light. Today I drove several hours and the sun didn't bother me when it peeked out from behind the clouds. I also feel less pain and scratchiness in that eye.  I am supposed to call the doctor tomorrow to tell him how it is progressing.

Tomorrow I also have to take my kitty back to check his blood counts. I am hoping to have good news there too.  He is acting healthy, if a little cuddlier than usual.  We are both looking forward to when he does not have to have his mouth forced open five times a day so I can squirt medicine down his throat.

I am going to try a short run tomorrow morning in my glasses.  I am logging my food again. I will weigh in tomorrow morning and face the music (and will post on Lose It! for the world to see).

Next week is my last week of classes. I have a boatload of grading to do and then I will be off for the summer. I have some projects I want to work on but one of my biggest projects this year is weight loss.


  1. Sounds like you've turned the corner for your eye problems and your kitty's health. Hoping for continued healing all around.

    Good luck with the grading! The summer off is definitely something to look forward to. You'll have time to focus on yourself and gear up for the fall, which I know comes around sooner than we all expect.

    Hope you have a healthy, productive week.

  2. oh, and I forgot to tell you-- I loved Bossypants. I didn't have the audio version--read it on my Kindle. It was such a fun read. Did you see her on SNL last weekend? The first half was really funny. Lots of Bin Laden stuff, but hilarious. Did you see the last episode of 30 Rock? I thought it stunk. I love that show and it's quirky plot lines, but this one was just "whaaaat??" Oh well, hopefully Tina F. will have that baby and be back in top form in the fall.

  3. Love summers "off," too, great time to refocus efforts on your weight loss journey. You can do this-the whole summer a waits !
