It hasn't been the best of months. I turned 61, had to put a 13 yr old dog to sleep, worked too many doubles (yes the $$ is great, but it tired me out). The boss has been a b!#@# and it's hot outside. I've regained over 10 lbs that I worked hard to lose. I haven't done well on the 5% challenge either.
So here are the reasons I should be happier: my darling grandson is 4 months old and rolling around like a champ, smiling , cooing and quite pleased with himself. Alexis and I had a great shopping trip the other day and she miraculously had just enough money for the treasures she wanted (thanks Tom of Tom's Coffee, Cards and Gifts). My Aunts are in town from Ireland, South Dakota, and Tennessee so I'm going to have some qualty family time this weekend. My DH admitted that even though he hadn't originally wanted a dog, he did miss her and maybe in a little while we should consider getting another. I have a hobby (rubberstamping) with gives me friends and an opportunity to earn some $$ to support that habit ;^D I'm still active as a Girl Scout leader and people don't believe I'm really 61 (or so they tell me!)
So, I'm going to restart July on a positive note and get moving and hit the 170's again, because I'm NOT buying bigger pants and the size 12's are feeling snug. I could start by walking to Julyfest instead of driving
