Went to the diabetic management follow-up seminar today and took the kids. They behaved themselves very well and even bragged on me to the others in the group when I went out to get my weight and waist measured and, most importantly, my hemoglobin A1C test. This is the test that measures your blood glucose levels over a three-month period and is very important in the management of diabetes.
According to their scales, I lost 13.8 lbs. My goal was 15 and they said I basically met the goal.
According to their tape measure, I lost four inches from my waist!  Hubby is already saying, “Oh no! You’re going to be looking at those catalogs again!”

On another happy note, the Girl got her schedule today. She has four honors courses: English 2, Biology 1, Global 1, and Geometry 1. On top of that she has Music Appreciation, P.E. and French. The only thing she’s not happy with is Music Appreciation; she would have rather had Art.
Enough happy dancing for now. Back later if the muse moves.
