Hi everyone! Well, the last two weeks have been a whirlwind, but OH so wonderful!
But first things first, today is day 86 for no refined sugar, rice and pasta, and VERY little white flour. This is the LONGEST I've ever gone--period--WITHOUT feeling deprived and having a 'woe is me' attitude! I honestly don't crave it ONE bit which is itself a MIRACLE! ha!
My sister arrived July 7th with her three kids, my WONDERFUL nephews, Porter and Harrison, and my niece, Sophia. We had a great week together! And she helped me SO much as we prepared for the grad party.
On July 12th, my parents arrived WITHOUT my brother! I was SURE he was going to come and he wasn't there! Of course, he never committed, but I just thought he would make the trip--first time in 24 years! Well, we were all on the patio talking, and IN WALKS MY BROTHER! My parents dropped him off up the road and he WALKED to my house and surprised the DAYLIGHTS out of me!!!! Super, super, super FUN!!!!
Then Saturday we had Jonathan's party! VERY nice and had great weather!
Then my PRECIOUS parents stayed another week, and just left yesterday!
YES, I was balling my head off!!!!!!
So there is the update and now I'm working on school stuff, gardening, and trying to relax a little the rest of the summer!
Oh, and I've lost 7#'s since June 13th! 15# more until I get back to goal weight!
LOVE you guys!!!!!
