How I spent July August 3, 2015

It’s been a month since my last post. I didn’t attend any concerts and couldn’t think of anything to write…until now.

Here are some highlights from July 2015:

July 9: I helped my father Bill bring three old CRT TVs to the curb for pickup the following morning:
MC70915001-1a

MC70915002a

MC70915003a

MC70915006a

We had been meaning to get rid of those TVs for a long time. Dad and I were glad we finally did.

July 11: I attended my friends’ Mike and Laurie’s eldest daughter Elle’s 4th birthday party. Here’s the dessert spread:

Elle officially turned 4 on July 13.

July 16: I spent the afternoon visiting my cousin Samantha and her eight-month-old daughter Antonia. In the evening, I went to a Mexican restaurant in North Wantagh to celebrate my sister Lauren’s birthday. There was Carvel ice cream cake waiting for us at home:

July 18: Birthday week concluded with family friend Rick’s 60th birthday party. There were three birthday cakes: a yellow cake, a chocolate cake, and a strawberry cake:

July 29: 2 1/2 weeks of watching what I eat, but not starving myself, allowed me to reach my lowest weight in 20 years: 132.6 pounds. It was down 100.8 from my peak on January 2, 2007, of 233.4 pounds. I doubt I’ll stay that low, but as long as I’m below 145, I’ll be satisfied.

I hope to have more to write about this month. If not, I’ll whip up another post like this early in September.
