Terrific Thursday

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Helped former minister pack up household to move last night. I'm glad hubby and I went. It was a good evening although sad. God has really worked through him. He was determined not to be bitter. What an awesome example he is...encouraging us not to be bitter. Decided to eat at home and made healthier decisions and stayed within calorie range. He had boxes of chocolates for everyone to eat and get rid of...and I declined all offers. Just thought of my goals and chose not to even start eating them. Not sure I could eat just one and stop. Just walked out of the room.

Trying to focus on my goals.

Got a little snow last night. Heading to SAM's Office Depot and Walmart to get supplies for both offices first thing this am.

Off to make it a super day!

    Careful on the roads.
I also know that I can't just eat one, so you are doing great, Kathleen! Know your limitations.

    Happy Thursday Kathleen!!. It's always sad when a minister leaves especially when you are fond of them. Keep in touch with him. No reason why you can't. We also got a small snow dusting last night. It went from 55 degrees down to 22. What a difference. emoticon Catchya later.. keep goal minded. Donna

Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Made it home safely and early by about 25 minutes! Amazing huh! Came home to warmer weather and the snow was gone. Left 80 degree weather!

Had success. We narrowed it down to two dresses and yesterday went back to the first dress shop and she tried on the dress and it was "The One". We have it on order. Should be in middle of June so we're on track with an August wedding. She is planning to carry it on the plane home.

Little tired today but up and ready to exercise.

Had a wonderful trip. Now it's back to work! Hopefully I don't have a high pile of work to deal with this AM.

Fantastic Friday

Friday, January 25, 2013

About packed except for the few last minute things and ready to go on my adventure to Florida. We are going wedding dress shopping. The mother and step-mother are so excited that Stephanie has invited them to go along too! I am so happy we are all going together as we unite into a team. I think it's great we are all on board and looking forward to enjoying this celebration together. So often the son's side gets left out. I know how much it meant to me that Kristie included me in that special day.

Been looking forward to time with one of Stephanie's bridesmaids today. She's picking me up from the airport and we're spending the afternoon together. She is a makeup artist and maybe she can give me a few pointers. She is a lot of fun to be around. She's going to take me where she works and tour me around Tampa some and then head to Sarasota and we're all going to have dinner together.

Also planning to catch up with another bridesmaid who just had a baby and want to take him a little gift. He's about 3 weeks old. Meghan used to be Stephanie's roomate. It will be good to see her new one.

My biggest goal has been Monday morning to walk the beach by myself and take my journal and journal some and just be alone for awhile.

Also hoping to do something adventurous on Sunday afternoon kayaaking or something physical with the kids.

Off to make it a super day!

Oh yah and looking forward to enjoying some of the sunshine and warmth to my bones!
