Thank you for inspiring me!
Thank you so much for your kind words. I admittedly don't do well handling unexpected bumps in the road. I strive to be that person who just rides the wave, but I'm not there yet!
Lunch yesterday with the relatives went so well. I was prepared for it to be awkward since I haven't seen them in so long, but it was very comfortable and relaxed! Also, they were great about commenting and asking about my weight loss and then just moving on to other topics of conversation.
My one uncle looks nothing like my father, but the other uncle looks and acts just like him. So it was a bit like seeing what my father would have looked like had he not died so that was a little sad.
I'm calling in sick tomorrow (shhh.... don't tell anyone) and will be heading down to a ginormous mall and expect to completely finish my Xmas shopping.
Have a great Sunday everyone!
