Today was a great beginning to the weekend. This week-end is Homecoming weekend for my kids who are both in high school. It was the perfect evening for the football game. My son Bino is on the JV team. He had a good game and they won 38-10. The harvest moon was a perfect addition to the fall type evening.
Another day to wake up to beautiful sunshine. The house was busy with activity early. The homecoming parade was at 9am and both kids were in the parade. My hubby headed for his mom's house. I headed for the gym to catch the 830 spin class.

I got to the gym early so I was stopped at the personal trainer desk. This past week was my birthday and my hubby got me a certificate at the gym. Amazingly I found out that there TEAM WEIGHT LOSS program begins a new group on Monday. I also made an appointment with a trainer for an evaluation. I believe losing some weight will be my key to 2008. Something to think about this weekend for sure.
Tonight was the Homecoming dance- "Midnight in Paris". Bino's date cancelled on him so he was going with some of the other football players. At the game on Friday night , he met a girl from the other school . Her date for our homecoming had also cancelled. she had all the paperwork filled out so Bino invited her to meet him. At the door they would not let her in because Bino's name was not the name on the forms. He ended up having a great time and was invited to the girl's homecoming next weekend. Hooch went with a group of 32 friends. They had a great time and it was a beautiful evening.
As soon as the sun came up, I headed for the gym. I did an easy 30 minutes in the treadmill then headed for the pool. I worked on just basic for 30 minutes. I have a long way to go but I'm on my way.

I did sign up for my first triathlon today. Registration opened for the Accenture in Chicago. It always fills fast.

The rest of the day was spent with catch up and getting ready for the work week. I also made homemade chicken/noodle soup. Um,Um good.
