The weekend is upon me, and boy do I have some work to do! There are some dings in the walls that need to be patched, a firepit in the backyard that needs to be finished, and a yard that needs to be mowed. I also need to start looking up storage units - why? Because it is possible that we may be starting to entertain the notion of thinking of moving.
Our neighborhood has gone down hill of late; it seems like whenever someone moves out someone worse moves in. House values are plummeting and there are three foreclosures on our section of the block. I'm worried that if we don't get out now, our mortgage will end up higher than the value of our home :-(
Also, the rumor on the street is that there are two drug dealers, as well as a kid who has been caught trying to set an abandoned house on fire, on our street. So, as much as we love our HOME, it might be time to change neighborhoods.
As for my health, I continue to lose. Not as fast as I did the last time, but maybe that is for the best? Too much too fast just causes me to burn out. I've started an exercise streak! I'm on day 5. Rather than setting some goal, I'm just looking at today "I'm going to exercise today" - not "Okay, I'm shooting for 361 days" The latter is just too daunting. One day at a time, one day at a time.
Oh! My oldest is currently being dropped off at camp. Mrs BGD won the honors. She'll be picking him up tomorrow, too, because I'll be leading our small group at church. Probably for the best because I might freak him out with how nervous I am today and, if he isn't as good as I know he can be, I'll be pretty upset tomorrow. But I'm worrying over nothing. He's going to behave like an average 7 year old boy (which drives me crazy) and he'll be fine.
