Summer has flown by. My daughters head back to school this week - the older one tomorrow, the baby on Sunday. I still have much to do to get settled in my new house...hope that not having to work around the kids I'll make more progress.
Started new job last Wednesday only to learn the Federal Grant does not go into effect until September so I only worked half a day and went home. That's okay though - I really wanted to have the summer off to spend with the girls.
We went to Cape May for a long weekend. Just got home today.
Haven't been cooking - again, I'm hoping when I'm home alone, I'll develop a good routine. Would like to make a big pot of soup and have soup and salad for dinners. Smoothie or oatmeal for breakfast - lunch?
When the job starts - whenever weather permits, plan to walk to train (a little over half a mile) and then it's a little under a mile and a half to my office. Round trip that will be four miles a day. I will start posting weigh-ins every Friday after I start work.
Shout out to Travelgrll for posting photos! You are doing so great! I'm as happy as could be for you and your success.
Thanks to Vandal and others who have checked up on me the past few months. I'm okay.

    Happy to hear from you!! Travelgrrl really is kicking some serious @ss isn't she?? I really need to step up my game.

    Sounds like you have things going your way and I hope this new job works out for you. I also hope you have some nice neighbors that you can get acquainted with. Seems like that's something lost in California at least - no one goes to meet the new neighbors.

    Oh well - hope you can continue to blog on a regular basis and that we both get our acts together so Travelgrrl doesn't get to gloat forever!!

    Take care!!

    Hi Nancy,

    Hey, thanks for the shout-out! When you asked me to post pictures I knew it was time. It seems strange but I found it strangely liberating. I feel like I am more accountable now that I'm not just some random picture -- I'm a real person!! LOL

    It is so great to hear from you! I'm sure having your daughters home for the summer was a huge blessing to both you and them. A weekend at Cape May -- what wonderful memories to send them back to school with.

    I am guessing that you will carve a new routine for yourself once your daughters are back in class. Routine and consistency are important and I know you'll find what works for you. I love, love LOVE the idea of getting in a 4-mile walk each day! And fairly painlessly too! You New Yorkers know how to do it.

    Can't wait to have you start blogging regularly. Take care of yourself. emoticon emoticon
