I have been MIA....
because I have been out of town at a library conference. I was planning on eating really well so I could lose 5 lbs in a week. :) Of course that didn't happen. I ate lots of crap. Every where I went there was chocolate and cookies and ice cream and yummy yummy goodness. So, of course, I ate it. I don't feel too bad about the whole thing, but of course, now I feel like I should have used some restraint. I didn't gain anything, but I didn't lose either.
I wasn't really looking forward to attending this conference, but something amazing happened. One of my co-workers (with the help and support letters of A LOT of other people) nominated me for Michigan's state award for Teen Service Librarian of The Year. I won the award. I had no idea, it was a complete and total surprise. I cried! This was a huge honor and felt amazing. I can't help but think that it was that much more amazing because I had lost weight and felt better about myself.
All and all a really amazing experience. I do however, now need to catch up on all your blogs!! Look for my comments soon!!
