First, I would like to thank everyone who commented on my previous post, "What Would You Do?".  I feel now that I have done the right  and to date, no more calls!  Yay!

I have been very busy!  I just completed a 4 day convention (Thursday through Sunday).  While it went off perfectly in the eyes of the participants, behind the scenes was another story!  I have done this convention 5 times before.  I'm not new to it.  The bossman thought he would be "nice" and get me some help.  The "help" caused most of the chaos!  I ended up having to do double the work because I was straightening out the mistakes.  But i is over and now I am on to planning another convention which will be the first weekend in March.  Yep, right around the corner!  It never ends!

I have snuck in some fun time.  One night the girls and I went to dinner and then a movie, Beauty and the Beast 3D.  It was great!  Loved it!  Made me believe in romance and love again!  Sigh!

Reading a new book again (yes, to me that it is fun!).  I am currently reading "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo."  Not my typical genre but I am enjoying it!  I had it with me at the convention and I had several registrants rave about how great the book is!  I'm probably about halfway through!

I am happy to report that after 3 weeks of exercising and eating better, I have lost 4.2 pounds!  Yay!!!!  I can't believe it.  I never thought I would be able to do this but I have managed to maintain a work out schedule and watch what I eat without very many pitfalls (I do live in South Louisiana, a plethora of good food surrounds us all the time). I am actually looking forward these days to exercising and seeing what the results are!

I've done some stitching too!  Continuing to work on Dragon Knot 2.  Slowly but surely I am making progress.  I am going to keep plugging away at it!  My plan is this weekend to sit down and spend some quality time with my stitching.

I hope that everyone has a great week!  I have a short one as I have been now working 8 staight and counting.  So I am taking off Friday!  And I cannot wait!!!  It is some much needed time off!
