This is just a quickie post, as I'm running around like an idiot today, trying to get out of here (it's my Mom's surprise 70th birthday party this weekend and I'm heading to my brother's, where we're having it, to help with preparations). But I had to share good news before I left...
First, I hit my Booby Walk fundraising goal!!! Whoo hoo!!! Actually, as of right this minute, I'm $100 over the $2,300 target!! I'm planning to raise the goal to $3,000 now, as I'm sure it's do-able. Thank you, thank you to everyone who has donated (some people even donated twice) and/or passed the information on. Your support is appreciated beyond measure! As I said, though, I'm not finished... so if you'd still like to donate, please feel free :). The link to my page on the Susan G Komen site is on my sidebar. Just click on it and then click on the 'Donate to Diane' button on top of the thermometer... easy peasy!
Second, I thought I'd update you on my Weight Watcher's progress. I just finished my second full week on the program and I'm happy to say that I'm just shy of 10 pounds down! 9.6 is my total so far. Of course, it doesn't hurt that my joining coincided with my Booby Walk training! But the program has been easy for me so far (and dare I say it... fun!). I feel great about how it's going and I'm confident I can keep it up.
Last, regarding our late-night viewing of Harry Potter 6... the movie was really good! I'm not sure it was good enough to keep me awake, though... I think I dozed off at one point (shut it, Alan! It was 2am!). We got to theater to find about 1200 people in the parking lot (and that's not an exaggeration). But we got in and seated (with good seats) pretty quickly. However, some nimrod down front accidentally let off pepper spray in the theater and within minutes, the entire place was coughing uncontrollably (though we didn't know what had happened, so it all seemed very bizarre). This was about a half-hour before movie was supposed to start, so they evacuated and relocated us to another theater. Luckily we got good seats again, but the delay caused the movie to start late... at nearly 1am. It was 3:15 when we walked out and 3:30 before we fell into bed. And because I was beyond tired, I couldn't sleep! Needless to say, I was a zombie yesterday. Ryan, on the other hand, was wide awake through the whole movie and quite fine yesterday. Oh, to be young again :). So, was it worth it? Hmmmmm... well, let's just say it's the last midnight showing we'll go to. And I totally don't care if I have to forfeit my 'cool mom' status as a result!
I'm out of here in minutes and won't be back 'til Sunday, so you guys have a wonderful weekend!!! XOXO
