Wow, Barb -- it sounds like you're lucky you didn't have to fly home barefoot! I hope all of that swelling goes down as soon as you get more regular on your meds this week.
I'm up about .3 of a pound from a week ago. Earlier in the week, we bought some snacks for school, and I had a few. It seems to be on a downward rather than upward trend, though. Earlier in the week I felt distinctly puffy, and now I feel normal. (I'll double-check that cheerful assumption tomorrow!)
School began live last week, and it's been difficult, because our son has lost it, sleepwise. With school largely self-directed on the computer this past year, he's been staying awake late or all night, and getting up very late (except when he has had to get up for an online class, which has usually required his parents dragging him out of bed after he has slept through his alarm clock.) Now he's got to be up, dressed and out of the house in the daytime, and despite this need, he simply can't sleep at night even if he's lying in bed, nor wake up easily in the morning. He's like an angry sleepwalker when awakened, but he would have missed school every day last week if we had left him to his own devices. He won't try melatonin, says it gives him nightmares. So as part of a long-term attempt at solving this, my husband has taken him out this morning to have breakfast at an outdoor cafe, and then go for a long walk, in hopes the daylight will help re-set his internal clock.
I've got nothing fun to look forward to this week -- delayed taxes and cleaning out closets. Hoping to get some wind in my sails about it.
Have a great week!
