The day I have been waiting for!
Today was my husband's first day back at work since February! Really happy on so many levels! A regular paycheck will seem like heaven, and we qualify for insurance starting August 18th. This week is going to be somewhat tricky as he is sched... Read more
Life is certainly never boring...high winds yesterday took out our power and almost sent our exchange student running out the door and into the car...as if that would help! We fired up the generator after a few hours...so glad we have one. Not... Read more
Mid summer whine - feel free to skip!
Well, almost another month...we keep moving forward, but keep getting hit with challenges. We welcomed a Spanish student into our home. He is a keeper, great kid. We have been on the move, but not on the move. The first day we went for a wal... Read more
Wow, a whole month has gone by...
I can't believe it has been a month since I have been on. Time flies...so much has happened! My daughter did graduate (barely), my son has moved in with his girlfriend, we have been accepted on our State's insurance, I have been clowning like ... Read more
Need to carve out some "me" time
One week since Zumba...but today is a new day. And, she played my favorite song! Argh. Life has been even more stressful than usual. My daughter is 4 or 5 essays away from graduating from High School...finals start today. My college son mov... Read more
Went to my first class yesterday...probably the first class I have done at the Health Club in 9 years. I went with my friend Majorie who is so much fun to be with. We had a blast. It was tough...but instead of freaking out when I couldn't do ... Read more

Just finished up our circus gig...had a lot of fun and worked really hard...slept in until 1:00 today after 7 hours at the circus yesterday.
For my Mother's Day present my husband encouraged me to take the day off...so I did!
Can't w... Read more
Fresh Start all Around...
Trying to look at this whole situation as positively as I can...a fresh start. Now that I am back at my original highest weight ever, I can hopefully learn from my mistakes and change. Worked out tonight, and even though I drove through Kentuc... Read more
Swimming, water walking, chatting...perfect combo for a relaxing evening.
Thanks to my big sister Becky for taking me to her pool last night. We did some fitness lengths, and then did some leisurely swimming, walking, and talking in the pool. I gave myself the day off from job hunting for my family, cooking, cleanin... Read more
Running away to join the circus!
The taxes are FINALLY done, yea! Still moving forward, but more in my business than in my diet & exercise routine. The Piccadilly Circus called and we will be doing some advance work for them, visiting pre schools, schools, and a hospital to ... Read more
Doing better at doing!
Got one fitness walk in yesterday...said "no" to a whole bunch of stuff someone wanted to give us. Stayed up late and caught up on business stuff. No sugary snacks or soda in the house. Had a coke and it almost gave me a panic attack! So not... Read more
Started last night...
Went on a mile "fitness walk" with my husband before bed. The dogs were pleased! It was a slow pace but that is where I am at, so I am ok with that! We actually went on one the day before as well, without the dogs. I'll take it. Time to st... Read more
Time to focus!
This week is "wrap up" week! Time to wrap up the painting, 2 more rooms and trim to go, wrap up taxes, 6 more months of bank statements to find and enter, then e-mail the whole thing off to the tax man. Time to clean out the basement and garag... Read more
Oh my, am I off track!
Sitting across from the hubby, he is applying for a job and I am supposed to be putting the finishing touches on the taxes! Little does he know! Finally figured out how to do this without going crazy, got my I Pod on...
I think I have gai... Read more

Made some progress on the house, the living room and hallway are painted! No trim yet, but it looks much better. Working together on the taxes today, got to get them e-mailed to the accountant so we can pay for health insurance.
