Sitting on the couch with 2 bulldogs who are snoring happily while I listen to Charlie Brown's Great Pumpkin in the background. I love fall - the weather - the snap in the air - the color of the leaves - hot cocoa / cider - comfy sweaters..............just wonderful!
The only thing missing is my husband. He came home from Japan my last day in the hospital - was home for about 3 weeks - and left for El Paso yesterday. He won't be back until the first week of December. So - we miss Halloween (our favorite!), our 3rd anniversary, and Thanksgiving. It's always a major adjustment when he leaves - and another when he comes home. It's hard to see him go away for so long, but as long as he is happy, I'm ok.
I suppose part of me is somewhat excited that he is gone for 6 weeks.......I'm hoping to continue to lose weight - and that the swelling in my stomach goes away - so I can look different when he comes home. I'm going to start excercising now - I tried before, however I was so tired I nearly collapsed. I think that I am getting used to the lack of nutrients - etc.
Wish me luck!
