i feel like i’ve been away forever. between the move, the short trip to baltimore, 14 days with no internet – running around the city in search of hot spots & catching up with all my friends, i’m finally getting to the place of believing i’m actually back in town.
i did figure out how to fit all my stuff from the 1100 sq. ft. apartment into a studio. i gave away most of my possessions.
on the day of my move i assembled the courage to step on the scale. i gained 17 pounds. i knew it was going to be hideous – but seeing that was disturbing to say the least. the scale remains in the trunk of my car. my new weight measurement system does not require a scale. instead, i have counted the number of jeans i own that fit me prior to my nj nightmare – 23. that includes the 2 pair i was forced to buy after the first 10 pounds. therefore, upon arrival, i had 2 pair of jeans that fit – even if just barely. today i have 5 pair to choose from. progress is good. the plan is to be at at least 20 by the end of may.
the glovers had a baby girl last weekend and named her natalie marie. i would show you a picture but they have yet to send one . . . while lauren labored at lenox hill, i thought it would be a good idea to take mia on a road trip to get away from it all. plus i was really missing mighty man and had promised him i would be out to visit as soon as i got settled. a good time for us – not so much for lauren.
