Good Morning Sparklers :)
Decided I'd check in here quickly before my work day begins. I haven't been around most of the week (sorry) as my boyfriend is on his week off and when my work day is done he sucks up my time lol, just joking... I value every minute we spend together. We have a lot of fun.
Today is his birthday, he is miserable about it. Hates his birthday (unlike me). Tonight I will take him for supper and since tomorrow is a holiday we are trying to find something fun to do. He's a homebody to the fullest extent and can't figure out how he would like to spend his day, other than watching movies on the couch which is what we've been doing pretty much every night for the last 6 years lol.
This week has been full of let downs - doesn't look like I will be able to buy a house this year, which is why I am currently living with my mother in law (to save up a down payment). Kind of feels like it was all for nothing at this point and I was oh so proud of us - now I'm at a roadblock. Oh well, next year. We have a few options still - very limited ones, but they are still options. Hoping that today we can find some answers and see if we may actually be able to own something this year. Fingers crossed!
I've been eating well all week but my downfall has been not tracking. I'm still up on my weight and I was feeling quite light this morning so it was a huge disappointment when I weighed in this morning. That's okay, I think I will just blame it on PMS and being bloated - good odds are that does have something to do with it, but also I am seriously lacking in exercise. This weekend will be hard, no doubt, with all of the Easter celebrations going on, but next week I will hit the pool again with full force and I know I will have a better week.
I hope you are all having a great end to your week and hope you all get in some rest, relaxation and plenty of family time this weekend. That reminds me - once a couple years ago someone told me that I shouldn't wish "strangers" good family times because I just don't know if said "stranger" has a family or not. I just want to add to this - even if you don't have family around... even if no one shares your blood/DNA or if your closest relatives are an ocean away, or if your actual family is too cool for you...remember this weekend that your family is your choice. Treat your friends as if they are your family, and treat your family like you wouldn't be possible without them. You will be a richer person at the end of the day if you realize the importance of family, whether they are your blood or not.
Have a great Easter weekend to all who celebrate it, and also to those who don't. I will check in hopefully in the next couple days.
