Labor Day

It was a perfect day.

I woke up early and got myself to the gym by 7:00. I walked/ran on the treadmill for 45 minutes and burned about 475 calories. I left the gym feeling really good. Because I was feeling so good and in celebration of my WLC progress I bought myself the above bouquet.

My daughter had an appointment at the salon so she could get her back to school 'do. She looks so pretty. I'd post the pic but I don't think she'd want me to. You'll just have to take my word for it.

I took her to lunch and since she'll be celebrating her 16th birthday in about a week we had an interesting discussion about dating. Seems she's not completely comfortable with going on a one-on-one date with a boy. She'd prefer to do the "group thing".

Hear that? That was a deep sigh of relief. There is one boy, however, that she's fond of and I'm fond of but his family may be moving away. In light of that, they've decided to keep things on a friend level. She did happen to mention that they've shared a kiss. "On the lips? For a long time? With tongue?" Those were my questions. "Yes, no and no!" were her answers. Hmmmm.

After lunch we came home and relaxed for the rest of the day. Her father called and asked if he could stop by for a few minutes. He said he woke up missing her. I can understand that. If I couldn't wake up everyday and see her face, I'd miss her too.

Awwww, what a wonderful day. I love that you and your daughter have the kind of relationship where she talks to you. That is a blessing.

I think its great you can have that sort of conversation with your daughter! I think my sons are fairly open with me (although there are times I just tell them I don't want to know!) and its wonderful to have that relationship.
