    I need to lose about ten pounds, too, or whatever it takes to shrink a waist by two inches. I’m starting to get crap from Chinese girls. They’re the canaries of weight gain.Report

    Its supposed to be super cold on Saturday and Sunday in NYC so I’m probably going outside on Saturday. Sunday I have to go into the office because we were closed yesterday.Report

    I guess you could say I resolved to get my blue belt, but, I really don’t get input since you have to be invited to test, but the Instructor did say to three of us, all 4 stripe white belts “time to get serious”.:

    Drill Drill Drill
    Take privates
    Lose weight/build cardio

    Repeat 1, 2, 3 as necessary until invitation to test. Don’t puke on the mat during testing.

    Bonus…playing 5E D&D this weekend. Been like, 30 years since I last played.Report

      5th Edition does this trick where it *FEELS* like 2nd edition (with a handful of bells and whistles) until somewhere around 5th level. And *THEN* its start to feel like this completely new system.

      (And given that most characters never make it past 2nd, that’s a pretty neat trick.)Report

        Yeah, just enough similarity and new stuff to be utterly confusing, but I did have a blast. GF was pissed but….whatev…..

        Almost 3rd level now…see what happens at 5th.Report

    I’ve got to get serious about packing away all of the emotions and hormonal baggage from the relationship I have with my surrogate son’s father so I can look at finding a new family to carry for in 2018. I’m going to starting weaning from breastfeeding tomorrow… or Monday… or next week… This is a difficult resolution!

    Today I go visit my best friend’s new baby born over Christmas break. Not helping my baby fever. Sure, I need to do all of those usual weekend chores, but BABIES!!! I don’t even particularly like kids, I’m just high on hormones.Report

    • Jaybird in reply to Miss Mary says:

      Oh jeez, that’s both really rough and really great that you’re going to be doing it again!

      You’re helping a lot of folks and, jeez, the emotional labor seems astronomical.

      It seems weird or dumb to say “thank you” or “good job” but, seriously, that seems both really rough and really great that you’re willing to do it again.Report

    Re-did and re-sent my passport application from scratch, after it got rejected for insufficiently perfect photos last time. (The Canadian govt is way pickier than the US govt about this.)

    That was such a stressful thing, for 99 percent symbolic reasons, that I’m really not expecting much of anything else from myself. Gaming tonight which is a lark.

    Goin’ to PItch Perfect III with Fish on Sunday if we can figure out the timing.

    Probably I’ll put the laundry away at some point. And go to the library to pick up my holds.

    But we’re in the land of low expectations for the rest of the weekend, ’round here.Report
