In the category of Unexpectedly Positive Outcomes of said illness, however, I did in fact lose 5 lbs, and have kept it off ever since! Amazing!
So basically, nothing new to report here except that I didn't leave my house for two days, missed a planned Friday night dinner with friends and watched more television than any human should watch over the course of 48 hours. At least I rearranged my closet and dresser this afternoon and put aside four huge bags of clothes for donation. To make room, I suppose, for new fall clothes! Yay!
And speaking of Fall, I got my work travel schedule at least partially firmed up. I'll be going to Paris for Premiere Vision (a fabric show) at the end of September, staying through the weekend to shop, and I get a week in between Paris and China to go wherever I want in Europe to shop for inspiration. Not fucking bad. I think I'm going to go to London and perhaps Copenhagen. Then off to China for almost a week for Fall corrections, and back to the States for a few days before a yet-to-be-planned scuba trip and vacation to Hawaii with Darren for our anniversary.
I'm looking forward to our upcoming trip to North Carolina and Nantucket in a few weeks. We decided to string them together because it was just too hard to find the time to get away otherwise.
