I had originally told the manager of the Saturday Market that I wouldn't be there. I contacted him to see if there was any openings left (I hated to pass up the $$ I would make!), but he said he was full. Well, I checked my email late Friday and he had emailed me back to say he did have an opening. Nick and I had already made plans, so I said thanks, but no thanks!!!
Well, I'm glad I said no because when I went to weigh at WW around 7:30, the sky looked like it had a black blanket over it. Around 8:00, the bottom fell out. I'm sure the market was set up, but then had to pack it up and go. Needless to say, I was glad that I didn't have to deal with that. :)
You might be wondering about my weigh-in. Well, I lost a pound. That's great, but last week I was up .8 a pound!! :( I WON'T GIVE UP!!
Nick and I had breakfast at IHop, then I had a light workout. (I haven't missed a day this week!) I went back home because we had tickets for a Cirque de Soleil show at Bridgestone Arena. We had an early dinner at PF Changs, dessert at a nearby Starbucks and then on to the show. The show was fun, but it wasn't near as good as the one I saw in Vegas. Bridgestone is so large, it didn't lend it self to good viewing. We still had a great time.

The umbrella came in handy!

Getting ready for Honduras:
I decided to tackle the job of packing all of the donated items that I'm taking down. We always use our second suitcases to take items for the Honduran people. (otc medicines, toiletries, small toys, school supplies, etc.)
|I have to get all of this into one suitcase and it can't weigh over 50 pounds!!!|
I unpackaged 69 toothbrushes and put them all in a baggie. I unboxed other things too, so that everything would fit into my suitcase. I was successful, but I'm very concerned that it will weigh more than 50 lbs. If it weighs more than that, I will be charged an additional fee. I'm planning on going by UPS on Monday to weigh it. Let's keep our fingers crossed!!!! (Spellcheck doesn't like unpackaged and unboxed!!)
I'm happy because I did it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm always green! Here's my sorted piles: trash & cardboard to recycle.
Check out this blog of a young lady who has just gotten back from Honduras. Her thoughts say it all!!!!
She's written more and you might want to use this link to read the rest of her thoughts. She says what everyone feels after they have been to Honduras!
Well, I will be getting up early, early on Thursday, so you may not hear from me until I reach my destination in Honduras. I have lots to do this week. Keep me and my fellow Torchers in your prayers. Don't forget our team's blog. The link is below. They haven't posted any pictures yet, but if everything goes as planned, I will post updates and pictures daily!!!!
