It's been a while since I wrote a blog. My weight has not changed- still need to get rid of 20 lbs, need to exercise more though chasing down toddlers to keep then from getting hurt, trying to potty train those same toddlers (yes, it's finally working), travelling out of state to get time away from those wild and crazy toddlers, trying to get my lab work to be in the proper range which I did manage last month!! Everyone is happy, especially me because this means NO prescriptions!!

Our trip away was a trip "home" to Nebraska where DH and I were born, raised, met, married, had 3 daughters and then DH got a great job offer in Florida so we relocated to Orange Park, Florida, in 1985. Our daughters all stayed in Florida, the oldest lives with her DH and their cats in Niceville. The other two are near us, the middle daughter and her DH have a son and daughter in their upper teens and the 3rd daughter is married and now has 3 girls under 3. That may explain why I'm often really tired. I'm forever driving to help with the little ones with Dr visits, shopping, etc. And now you know why we drive across the country. emoticon

I'm looking forward to getting rid of these last 20 lbs and hopefully another vacation (maybe a cruise?) to visit Ireland and surrounding areas. Hope Hope!

    GO to Ireland! You will love it. And take a cruise if you can.

    I must knuckle down and drop 20-30 pounds myself, even my fav Doc got after me 6 months ago about it still going in the wrong direction. Toddler olympics may not be moving the scale down but I'm willing to bet being so active helped a lot on losing those prescriptions.

    Love your cover photo by the way!

    That sounds like a workout with the kids for sure!
    Good to see your blog and that you've recomitted to lose that 20 pounds. Not easy, but I know you can do it! Count those really does help. Set aside a special exercise each day too. Now that the weather is getting nicer...maybe walking? I didn't realize you've lived in FL that long! Glad you're daughters decided to stick around and live near you.
    Hope you get to go on your cruise and Ireland! Sounds fun! emoticon
