Okay, I've been off chocolate, ice cream, cookies & candy for a week. I do feel better (damn, that shit makes me dull & stupid...) but I only lost .2 of a lb at Weight Watchers weigh in yesterday. Well, I was happy that at least I lost SOMEthing AND I got off the junk. Man, sugar is SUCH a drug. I want it. At least I got a bit of a grip back, & well, practice makes perfect.
Tomorrow is the last flight I'll be taking with my flying partners that I triple buddy bid with. It's bitter sweet. I sure will miss those crazy bitches! I'm dreading saying goodbye on sat night when we land back at Newark. They won't let anyone give them a party, but I know some Flight Attendants have put up a banner for them in operations & 2 journals are being passed around for all to write comments & their fond farewells. I bought Pam a ton of dark chocolate (she's a chocoholic!) I bought Marilyn a ton of red wine (she's a ..well, nevermind.. she thinks we don't know.) Of course, I got funny cards. This is going to be really hard. Maybe I'll be better after they're gone & all this is over with. But I still sure feel sorry for myself that I can't join them, ESP since I'm a year plus senior to them both.
Since I last wrote, 2 of Doris' grandsons have graduated High School. I was in town for only one of their commencements, but I cried when I saw him marching into the auditorium in his blue robe & tossel cap. Of course I took a ton of pictures. I was SO proud & it is aways such a miracle!
I remember back when I graduated high school, wow. You never again feel that happy or brilliant EVER! It's such a wonderful time. So sad to loose that sweetness & naivete. And that feeling that the world is your oyster! Well, actually being naive wasn't so great. But I sure as hell am not that sweet anymore.
