That's how much weight I lost while visiting friends in Minneapolis.
(yes, Mom I was in Minneapolis when I was sick. Somehow in the feverish phone call I didn't communicate that to you....sorry)
How? How did I lose so much weight in 2 days, you ask?
Well...I had a wonderful little stomach virus.
Complete system purge you might call it.
Donna had a funeral to attend and I went along to help her drive, keep her company, visit some friends of ours and keep her up all night as I vomited up the roots of my toes.
There was a lot of laundry, quality time on the cold tile floor in the basement bathroom, fever, chills, not much whining as I didn't have the energy for speech and a poop story that is, in a very twisted way, perfect for a Saturday Night Live skit...one requiring hazmat suits. (that's a girl's weekend story, gals!)
I'm home, lighter and trying some toast for breakfast.
We'll see how it goes.

Haven't I posted several times in the last few weeks about napping?
So, I have this job. And we've been on a great run for several months. Running a bit during the day and sleeping all night.
And then it stopped.
I feel like I lose a portion of each 1st day off just to catch up on sleep I didn't get the night before.
I'm not whining. Really.
And this sleep deprivation is starting to interfere with my desire to work out.
Here I sit on the couch. Wanting to go take a nap. Needing to go see my crazy little nephew. Not planning to go to the gym.

Okay...so most of you know how many animals are living at my house right now and understand how it happened...so no snarky comments about the shear, mind boggling number...kay?
Yesterday I needed a nap. We'd not slept much at the station and...well, I just needed a nap.
I curled up in bed with my book and my short legged girl Maggie. She mostly sleeps on the floor as she's the only one of the 6 who can't get on the bed without help. I needed some Maggie time.
Soon my boys joined me. Gus at my left shoulder and Jack at my right.
Then Manda's kids wandered in, Cyrus down by Maggie and Tasha on the opposite side.
Rescue decided she didn't want to be left out so up she came...stepping on Jack in the process.
Jack, displaced and looking for a spot, climbed right on top of me and lay down.
At this point all I could think was "I'm so glad they all love me, it's nice to have a warm, snugly body (or several) to nap with."
"But couldn't someone love me from the living room."
