Spring 2016 Update

Saturday, May 21, 2016

Hello!!

I admit I'm liking this new page layout! It is indeed like Facebook but it works for organization. Just needs some getting used to. So far Spring has been good!

My son is potty trained emoticon

That was such a huge hurdle but he does not miss his diapers and I'm so glad. I've got him signed up for 4 different Pre-K programs so far. We are on the wait list for 3 of them and I will hear back from the 4th in about 2 weeks or so. I hope we get into that one. Its a new facility and I like how they run things so far.

I look forward to having an active summer with my 4YO. There are supposed to be $1 movies all year. I hope we can take a small trip to a nearby water park. I hope to get him in Bible school for a week. All these things I'm hoping will provide a good distraction away from his technology addiction. I try to distract him at home as much as I can but he really needs some socialization.

I love summers here on the coast. They do so much to keep tourists busy. Tonight we hit up a summer concert series and the island near by will have Fireworks every Tuesday night. Not to mention all the activities for locals and their kids. I truly have an appreciation for this area. Its so different that when I was little.

I have been busy these last few months helping an older woman sell clothing on eBay. I have her stuff here and I list them and ship them etc. Its been tedious. When she called me, she told me that it was all high fashion high end label. What she didn't tell me is that a lot of this stuff was stored in a room that was exposed to 40 plus cats. emoticon

I've cleaned enough hair to clothe another cat. I admit I haven't made that much money either. I'm actually ready to hand it all back.

I've got another project in the works and I'm really excited about it. I'll share more about it later. emoticon

I can't say I've lost any weight. I miss getting out and walking but I get my best walk in the mornings. However my son doesn't want to go walking and drags his feet. I'm hoping he'll get into a school and I can get some good me time back. Workouts are on the top of my list.

    Can your son get on a tricycle and ride his bike while you walk?

    So happy that your son is potty trained!! I know how hard it is to get a single male child potty trained. It is so much easier if they have an older brother to teach them. I hope he really enjoys all the plans you have made for him. It sounds like there are lots of fun things to do there. The cat clothes sound so gross. I feel for you. I'm sure you had no idea that it would be this much work. It was good to hear from you!! I love that things are going well. I hope you have more personal time soon!

    sounds like a nice spring! as someone who sells things on eBay as a part of my job, I can say there isn't a large profit margin in most things.

    Sounds like you are all ready for a wonderful summer! I remember how hard it was to work in exercise when my sons were that young.... Any exercise you can manage is all to the good!

    You are the very first person I know that likes the new sparkpage, out of thousands of people I have heard from on this site. FIRST! I hate it.

    I've learned a lot from the lectures of Jason Fung M.D. on YouTube on how to lose weight. His book is "The Obesity Cure."
