I have decided to re-name my blog. I picked the current name with zero thought whatsoever and I hate it! It is so generic. I am thinking of something like, "Welcome to Amandalandia, a suburb of Bandland". Still mulling that over...
We had beautiful weather in Eugene, Oregon over the weekend. My youngest daughter had her "friend" birthday party on Saturday. We went really low-key (and cheap - lol) and had a party at our house. I walked the kids to the park for an hour and then we walked back for cupcakes.
My seven-year-old (the birthday girl) is really a character. She has a dynamic personality - very charismatic. One of her school mates told me at the party that he was one of Bryn's minions. He seemed really pleased by the news. So I asked her later how many minions she had. She said she has four minions. I asked what being one of her minions means and she told me it means they get to follow her around and she gets to name them. I posted this story on Facebook and one of my friends suggested we call the minions her "Brynions" since my daughter's name is Bryn.
It takes a special kind of girl to have minions. It requires a certain level of confidence. I am pretty sure I've never been the sort of girl that would have them. My sister could have had minions. She's always been very charismatic. All my friends wanted to be her friends. Hell, all of my childhood boyfriends wanted to be her boyfriend too!
With the nice weather, I was able to get lots of activity in over the weekend. I mowed the lawn, weeded and planted some flowers. I also rode my bike to church Sunday morning. I walk my dog in the park every day so I did that too. I also bathed the dog and did my usual weekend house-cleaning. It was a nice weekend, but it wasn't very relaxing. Sigh. Maybe next weekend.
My food and eating has been pretty good, but I don't have much restriction so I feel like I am having to be really diligent. I had my last fill 3/31 so I am thinking of scheduling another one in the next couple of weeks.
