Thoughts about today . . .

Had a successful weigh in my 3rd week at the MF (medifast) center. Down another 2 lbs.
My counselor today suggested i create a vision board - to post words of affirmation, quotes, pictures, numbers, goals, etc. to post in my bathroom, or wherever, to view on a daily or regular basis. What a wonderful idea for a scrapbooker! I'm excited to do this and hope to get it done this weekend before going back to work Monday.

Feeling a bit blue . . .

maybe the weather, or TOM, or whacked sleep schedule but just don't have much get-up-and-go today. I've got to get out of this funk tomorrow. Tomorrow must be productive somehow, someway!

House cleaning, etc.

Well today i am using my silent auction gift certificate to have our house cleaned. A crew of 4 ladies are giving it a pretty good scrub down. ALL the house except for the office/scraproom, which is crammed with too much stuff for them to even bother cleaning! I'll do that once i get some organization going. It's definitely a work in progress but hoping it comes together really soon so that i can enjoy it. After having it and the house repainted and refloored nearly a year ago, it's about time to get it in gear and get 'er done!

The cleaning crew has left; my house smells and looks nice and clean! Love it! I may have to save some $$ and do this like twice a year! Summer and Winter cleaning, or late spring/late fall!

I'm on Medifast to jumpstart losing weight. As of today, i'm down just a bit over 7 lbs. on MF; 10 lbs. since the end of school, when I hadn't quite decided to do MF but started watching my eating. MF is kind of expensive (~$300 a month) but it's working and it helps me because it gives me options but yet it's specific foods. Anyways, hoping to lose 22-24 lbs. by the time i return to school on August 16th.

Gone WAAAYYY too long!

Wow! I couldn't believe it when i saw it. I hadn't posted anything for almost one full year. Guess other things took over. Too much to recap. Hope to come back more often and journal at least for myself.

Right now:
*Bought Cyber Green VW Beetle 2 weeks ago!
*Doing Medifast and have lost 6 lbs. in 2 weeks!
*Summer break 2010
*In a funk and haven't done much of anything for 2 days but will change that tomorrow.
*Oldest son starting drivers ed tomorrow
That's all i can think of at 11:05 p.m.

Back to school???

Wow, it's been a while since i posted last. A lot has happened since my last post. We got a new pup from the shelter - pit bull mix named Checkers. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooo cute! He's been great and seems to have a really low key, sweet personality. We start obedience training this Saturday. I love him so. Pics to come.

I go back to work/school tomorrow - Friday the 14th. Too soon, but i can't complain that i didn't relaxe enough! I'm kinda ready. I'll have same kiddos as last year with a few sprinkled in. Should be interesting as i've never moved up with a group before.

Getting an house interior makeover today and in days to come. Interior painting in most rooms and new flooring in all the house. Excited, but already not liking the 'mess' of having to move our personal stuff here and there, but it's part of the process. Guess i need to take pics of this, too.

I've done poorly on the 365 page a day project. May have to either make due with what i've done or do it next year - or both! Did take a really awesome and fun web class with Rene Pearson this summer on digi scrapping and i LOVED it! And plan to do more with her and Jessica Sprague in the nearest future. I want to do digi, but need to do hybrid as i have too much stuff to just go completely digi.

Signing off for now. Who knows when i'll be back on. Sooner than i did this time.

Back Home

Got back from a great visit with my brother and his family. 4 days of down time and family time. Got to see real, live rain! Thankfully it either followed us or God simply answered many prayers for it. Got to spend time with a dear high school friend and we drove around Arlington to reminisce about our younger days and hangouts! It was a blast to the past, for sure! Spent Wed at Hawaiian Falls water park in Mansfield; overcast day may it perfect! My sis-in-law won a cabana so we got a covered little hut/building to hang out in for small breaks and such! To end the visit, we got to wake up at around 5:30 a.m. to my brother telling us to get into the tub, that there was a possible tornado coming! That's what i'd call a rude awakening. But we were kept safe, thank GOD! Now we're home and i'm trying to think what all i need to do in these last 2 weeks of my summer break before i return to my job on the 14th. I knew it would come, but not quite ready.

camera straps

Just thought i'd post a pic of camera straps i saw on Stacy J's board. Cool. Thinking i might need one - soon! I'm thinking either the teal or lime! Probably lime! I believe the link is
