Hey, I know we’re all excited about the presidential election,
but if you can just keep your nail-biting to a minimum for a few minutes, let me give you the REALLY important news of the day:
Well, down a pound … not quite what I was hoping for, but better than I expected, especially given that last week was, as you know, All Hallows Eve, which, of course, means lots of yummy, healthy CHOCOLATE!!
So between that and all the comfort food that at least 50% of the people in our household (hang on, let me count — one, two — yeah, that’s about right) will be indulging in over the results of that election, I’d say that’s not too shabby!
Oh, and also, Mr. 50by60 and I finally got to the series finale of Desperate Housewives last night.
Which not only meant saying farewell to what was a fun but, let’s face it, kind of a dippy series …
… but also a very real farewell to Kathryn Joosten, the actress who played my favorite character, Karen McCluskey.
So between that and … well … whatever THIS is …
I’m just happy my weight didn’t zoom right back up to 262!!
No worries — now that the weather’s cooling off,
I’ve been able to do more walks and even (gasp) a little running!
So hopefully that’ll begin to result in …
Yeah, well, of course, but also, perhaps …
… a bit of a loss next week? Anyway, I’ll keep my fingers crossed and let you know! Meanwhile, don’t let it get to you.
It’s gonna be okay — we’ll get through this, no matter what!
*oh, and fun fact which I’m REALLY annoyed I didn’t realize till after we watched the entire series — “Karen’s” late-in-life love, “Roy,” was played by Orson Bean, who was, among other things the father-in-law of Andrew Breitbart! How did I miss that? Anyway, RIP to both of ’em!
