Busy? The weather? Blame my lack of blogging on the kids, my mom, DH? Nope, it's all been me...oh, this other stuff helped but it's all me.
Can't remember another summer that has had me running around like this. But, I'm liking it and finding more life to me than sitting on the internet all the time. My apologies to all my friends on the net that I have been neglecting. I owe many emails some from probably a month ago!
But, first I would like to wish Dawn and Cathey both a very happy birthday - at this point they are both late! Hope you guys got your cards on time. And then Mary Jane and her hubby just celebrated their 41st anniversary this week! Seems to be a week of celebrating! Now next week I'll be the one celebrating - my 45th birthday. I just want to know one thing...when did that number get so dang BIG?!
I know I am getting older when I have the music playing and it's from the 80's and I know every song. Gotta love these music stations that play certain genres. But, Dire Straits?
What should I show first?? How about my niece and nephew?
Doesn't Garin just look ornery? This is from Memorial Day at the lake and then Alivia is playing in the drive earlier this week. Tried to get her to dunk her head in the puddle but she was having none of it. Although, her mommy did it when she was this age.
Stitching wise --- have two more tags complete. Not too happy with Sunday but it's better than the first attempt.
Must remember to use darker colors when doing the days and numbers. Now have 10 complete tags and am working on Easter Egg Hunt.
This week has found me lost on Kent State's campus. I NEED a map of that place next time. DS is not good at giving directions! Then yesterday found DD and I at the bridal shop. We got her altered dress and two of the girls dresses. Must confess I tried on one and found it too big! Woohoo. And no there wasn't a picture taken!
Seems I am back on the diet wagon. My doctor and I agreed I needed to get my s*** together and loose this weight. As of May 4th - I have lost 13 pounds! I am back to where I was last November when I gave up. With a few major differences. I am now on the treadmill 4 days a week for at least 30 minutes and every day on the stationary bike for at least 15 minutes. I am not judging myself by the number on that silly scale. And this morning I was listing all the things to do and I wanted to get off the treadmill - told myself that I needed to take the 45 minutes for myself before doing for everyone else. And I listened! Ha, that explains the storms last night.
Ought to go change the washer and check the chicken thawing for dinner. How does bbq chicken and baked potatoes sound?
Hope everyone is enjoying the week - and has plans for the upcoming weekend.
