No No, In My Head It's Still Friday Night!

I know it's Saturday night...but in my mind it is still Friday night! :-D

I was having such a great time last night, and when 9 o'clock came and the dancing started, Jim was ready to go home to bed. He had to get up early to go to work the next day. But I didn't want it to end!!

As MyGuy walked around visiting with people after the awards were finished, I sat there people watching. I was basking in the "aliveness" of it all. The room was decorated so colorfully, there was great 60's music...and I was thinking, so this is how "normal" people live. I thought of how much of life I had missed out on due to being so overweight...but I was not sad. Because I had a Secret...

I was going to come back next year, and be smaller! Whenever I got self-conscious, I would remind myself of my "Secret". It made me smile, and it didn't matter what anyone else thought...I knew my Secret, and that I was doing something healthy for myself.  I just hope next year they play 60's music again! LOL!

Here are some pictures we took with Jim's fancy camera before leaving home, since I had no idea what I would end up with at the Banquet with my little cheapie camera. Groovy, baby!

Enjoy the Journey,

These pictures are beautiful! You are going to be having more and more 'normal' experiences as your Secret becomes reality. How wonderful for you and your Guy.

Thank you Karen, GeorgiaMist and Nancy for all your nice comments!

Wanna hear something funny?? Since Jim was wearing a brown wig, I wanted to "match" him and not look like his I applied some of that temporary brown hair color to my hair. It sorta kinda worked, a bit. But it washes right out. And wouldn't you know... just as we went outside to leave home... yep... it started sprinkling!! It was so funny, I just cracked up. Yay for umbrellas.
