A very tiring day

It's been a very long day. The morning was spent cleaning - hard, because it really needed it and we had company coming - then I got an hour to pamper myself and get ready for Alicia's friends to arrive for our dinner out. On the plus side? I got into a dress I bought for myself last fall that was too tight then, but fits well now. It's not much, but it's a definite start, especially since I've now added working out on the elliptical every other day to my routine.

We got Cold Stone for dessert, then came home where everybody promptly got comfortable. I've spent the last two hours writing the 2k I needed to get done today for my to do list. I love being able to cross things off the list. There's something insanely satisfying in it.

And now I'm off to tell the girls that it's time to start quieting down for the night. I love these friends of Alicia's. They're so well behaved and just good girls all around. Alicia got her picture taken with them tonight at Benihana's, and they all look so happy in it. Of course, I think Alicia looks older than 10 in it, too, which freaks me out a little bit, lol. Then again, she's always looked older in her pictures.
