This has been one crazy year!

Saturday, September 08, 2012

This has been one crazy year! We have been away from home so much that we almost feel that we are in a strange house! We have been away from home for 110 nights, so far this year, with more to come. So far there have been 4 weddings and one funeral in other states to attend and there is another wedding coming in October, also out of state. While we have been home, we have had family visiting. So far 4 families have visited us for a week to 10 days each. We are expecting one more family to visit in late October. Guess we can expect this with so many children and grand children spread all over the country.

I have missed my friends on SparkPeople and hope to get back to Sparking now that we are home for a little while. I have also missed my exercise on WII and using my wits to play the limerick game. I have managed to drop a couple of pounds this year, but it is a real challenge to make any progress when you are eating other people's cooking and attending so many events that test your will power--wedding cake is not on my diet! It has been a little bit up and then a little bit down all year. I just keep losing the same few pounds over and over! Now that things have calmed down a bit, I plan to do a better job of sticking to my diet plan and keeping up the exercise. Wish me luck with that!

    Wow, I can't imagine being away almost a third of the year, even spread out. emoticon for managing to lose a couple pounds under the circumstances. Some would have given up completely and gained.
