What’s New

Life is busy. The diet has not died, but the exercise and dieting that I had hoped would be a way of life by now does not exist. I am still down by 7 from the beginning of the year, and I am attempting at least maintain until I weigh myself after we’ve moved. . .

Yes. We are moving. We closed on the purchase of our first home today. We are excited about the potential for the 67-year-old brick house. Our boys are old enough to appreciate the fact that we own the house, so it was fun to tell them the deal was done and to take them to see it for the first time. The actual packing and moving won’t be so much fun, but in about 2 weeks, I’ll feel a lot better about life.

I was game mom for my 4th grader’s Valentine Party this week. I was pretty happy with how the games turned out. It was nice to be there for this party. It is his last classroom party planned by the moms. Next year, as a 5th grader, the teachers give the kids a chance to plan their own parties that often consist of junk food and a movie. So I was happy to be a part of it.

That’s about all for the happenings of my life. Not very interesting, really, but overall, good.

  1. Congrats on the weight loss–seven pounds is no small sum…that’s a sack of flour plus some canned goods if you think about it that way. Pretty hefty sack from Wal-mart if you ask me. I’ll keep you in my prayers, it’s a hard thing to get the weight off, but it is satisfying when your clothes are too big.

  2. Congrats on the house! That is so exciting. I wish we could make some progress on that front ourselves =-L

    I love old houses! Ours was built in 1920, and I wish I could think of some way to make it work so that we didn’t have to move, since we love our proximity to downtown Mebane, but short of adding a library and a nursery to the first floor, I just don’t see how I can manage with two little ones and an obligation to work 12 hours from home every week =[ I guess I could give up entirely on sleeping…
