Today was the last day Lucy had to prepare for her flight to New York City tomorrow morning. And what did she want to do, more than anything else in the world? She wanted to go to a movie. More specifically, she wanted to go see The Fault in Our Stars, having read the book multiple times. There will be a separate post about that soon, I hope
Meanwhile, we got school done this morning and then went to the movie this afternoon. It may have been the weepiest movie I’ve ever been to. I can’t remember ever being at a movie where everyone was still sniffling and wiping tears as they filed out of the theater. Afterwards, while we were still recovering, we went to the dollar store and picked up a few snacks for Lucy’s trip before coming home.
I’m still learning how to be a good “faster.” I have fasted 6 out of the last 12 days and today was the first in what I hope will be a three-day fast. It is hard to say if it is really helping yet. And in case you were wondering, there hasn’t been any astounding weight loss. A little, but not what you’d expect after taking such drastic action.
I finished the evening chatting with two friends online and it really kind of made my day.
