I mentioned in my last post that we're really busy right now. Well, nothing's changed, and we'll be busy for at least the next two months, if not longer. Right now it's all the little detail stuff that has to take place when you're getting ready to sell a home and purchase another one. Run to this place and drop off that paperwork, sign this and send it here, read through this e-mailed document and reply with a yes or no, go to the bank and make sure they print, stamp & sign what you need, now take it to XYZ place. Oh, and in the middle of it all have a giant yard sale and try to reduce your belongings as much as possible. Well, you get the idea. Things are busy, and that's life. Not complaining - in fact, we're excited!
This morning we paused for an hour and celebrated this special guys pre-school graduation. Joel turns 6 in less than two weeks, and Sadie turns 1 in less than a month. During the busyness we hope to pause a few times and celebrate these special occasions. Joel will begin Kindergarten in the fall, and this one extra year at home was exactly what he needed. He's ready. He's excited. And he's bored with me. :)
I haven't updated in some time regarding my weight loss, so I thought I'd take a minute to share and celebrate. For the past month or so I had plateaued at a 20lb. weight loss. Not too shabby, but the scale just wasn't budging past that mark. We had been so busy that my eating habits slipped a bit. I was still careful at home, but not as careful when we went out. But, I am happy to report that as of yesterday I am down 25lbs! I have tried to re-focus my priority to eat a low-carb, low-sugar diet (more whole foods, less pasta, bread and desserts). I have also added a natural supplement to help reduce cravings and increase energy. It is helping, and I feel like I'm back on the right track. I need to celebrate that, because I get easily discouraged on this path.
So, life is busy, but what else is new? Whether we were moving, or not, life would just be busy no matter what!
