Have you ever had the "That's It, that's how it works" or "Yes, I understand" or any of those other revelations that change your life. The thing that turns on the light bulb and you feel accomplished, directed, orientated, or (insert some other motivational word here).
Well, I have the feeling that, that moment is right in front of me, but I have no idea what it is, or where it will take me, or if it is really there. I have "glimpses" of something, have dreams that I wake up from recharged, and excited, but when I try to remember what it is, I am blank.
I feel like a horse with the apple being dangled in front of me. It is so... what's the word... It is just right there.
So to make this story even longer... Amy and I have started a new budget system (Dave Ramsey), we have started cleaning / selling stuff around the house, working with the kids to help them plan for the future, working on the house, .... so we have lots of projects going all (and all of them are good, and moving forward), so they are all great and positive, and I am excited to see all of them moving forward. I don't feel like there is anything lacking in my life. My job is fun, I like the work, I don't dread going to work. I am so in love with my wife, and kids are wonderful (well most of the time). So I am not looking for anything.
So it confuses me even more why i feel like there is something just right there, something that will make a life changing moment, when I am not looking for or feel like I need anything.
OK, enough rambling, to those who have read this far, thanks for listening to my rambling.

Just a short blog here.... I am too stressed to think much beyond breathing.
Work, Kids, work, schedules, people, traffic.... the list can go on and on. I keep trying to think how nice the weather is, and how wonderful it would be to go for a walk or hike and get fresh air, then my bubble is popped with work, phones, meetings, aAAAAaaaaHHHHhhhh
deep breath, and only one more day...

OK, the weekend is all wrapped up, and the down day was really relaxing.
Saturday spent the day moving the dirt... the story behind this: We have a long driveway that leads up to our house. Amy has never like the "hump" in the middle of the driveway, because it makes it so you cannot see the house from the street, or the street from the house. We have talked about renting a "machine" to dig up the hump. I tried with a pick and shovel, and made less than a dent in the hump (and lots of blisters and sore muscles). The neighbor also has the long drive (our lots are "mirror images"), so we decided to both plow down the hump. Got a bulldozer, and started digging. I have no idea how much dirt we moved, but the hump is about half gone. We need to get the removed dirt taken care of, before trying again. Who knew a simple hump could be so much work.
So here is to the start of a new month, and new goals. Amy and I have created several family plans/goals (most based on Dave Ramsey). We are excited to get starting, and moving.
I need to figure out what happened to my weight goal. I hit my "phase one" goal, and set my "phase two" goal. In doing so, SparkPeople adjusted my calorie range (since my new goal is less dramatic than the first). It went up almost 400 calories. I manually moved down by 200 (so I am still 200 more than before). I have been staying in that range, and I have managed to gain 3/4 of a pound in 2 weeks. I have tried to keep in the lower end of my range, but have not been successful in it. So I am now thinking I need to move my range back to where it was for my phase one goal, and see if I can get back on track.
So a bit bummed that I am now 1/2 pound above the end of my phase one goal, and I hope that adjusting back will work???

The rain today had kept us inside, and just relaxing for the day. It is good to have a down day once and a while. And I sure can use it, after spending 11 1/2 hours moving dirt, and plowing the driveway.
